September Horoscope for Taurus

 (April 20th  – May 20th)

 

This is the time for good choices. You know your weaknesses and you love them, but if you also love success and the ability to express your talents. Love is challenging, but your difficulties shed light on your need for more emotional independence. Slow down and make wise choices and you won’t regret what you said no to – on the contrary – you’ll celebrate.

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and so its lust for life is strong, even foolish. All that creative energy and desire for adventure needs to be focused on something greater than instant gratification. Taurus is like a fruit on the tree, it needs time to develop into a tasty, juicy delight. If it’s picked too soon, it taste bitter and green, if it’s left unattended it can spoil. Timing is a key to Taurus luck. They seem to be in the right place at the right time when the magic happens. To be in the right place you have to listen to your instincts that are directing you toward your destiny. If you don’t know what your destiny is, slow down and solve this enigma: How do I balance self-fulfillment and loving another, selfishness and compromise and can I achieve this balance without feeling cheated. The fear of losing love is what pushes a Taurus to give more than they want to give and then resent their partner instead of themselves for not saying no. It’s that need for unconditional love, which is totally unrealistic. Realism requires roots. These roots grow from values that receive the nourishment of attention. Without proper values the ego and its rebellious parts gain strength and then they act out and cause trouble. Values that give us strength and courage are less enticing, but certainly more rewarding: honor, courage, loyalty and commitment to name a few. When the need for excitement is weighed down by the problems it causes, then the values that build self-discipline begin to become more attractive.  

The Full Moon on September 6th occurs in your 5th and 11th houses: the 5h is pleasure and the 11th is friends and groups. Yes, there is a crisis because fun and friends will call when what you need to do is work. Expect it all to come down to a decision that could shape your future or give you a quick fix. Do you want to build a life, or just enjoy the moment?. The choice is up to you. The square from Saturn to the Sun is actually helpful at this time. It creates structure that can’t be ignored. It enforces the rules because consequences exist. Stay close to the truth because the ability to deceive oneself is strong. The focus of Taurus is personal truth or the values that create it. Where do you belong between family values, the demands of society and those of your friends? You need a personal truth before you can develop your talents and reach for greatness. You have the ability to see everyone else’s strengths and flaws in a millisecond – but not your own. Your insecurities make you exaggerate or ignore what needs to be looked at. Know yourself and everything falls into place.

With Neptune strong this month, so is your creativity. It’s opposition to the Sun will inspire you, so pay attention. Don’t be surprised if your dreams at night appear more often now and leave you with lasting impression. Write them down and look up their symbolism. There’s a message in those fantasies that your unconsciousness has sent your way.

The Sun, the source of energy, is incredibly powerful now, even though it’s not particularly happy in Virgo. Earth tends to put out some of the Sun’s fire.  However, the trine to Pluto compensates for any discomfort. Pluto rules your house of relationships, so if you’re in one, this should be a good month to make positive changes and feel you’ve connected at a deeper level. The more you understand each other, the more problems you will avoid and then your energy can be used to support and nurture not attack. Venus, the planet of love, is a bit isolated. So you may pull away before you get back together to work things out. Venus in Leo  is strong and expressive, but it longs to be noticed. Whatever you do, don’t act out to get attention. If you’re single, you may find that this is not the month to meet someone new, or make a commitment, it’s more about self-discovery and positioning yourself in your life. If you’re attracted to someone you may find it difficult to get a date. Don’t give up, but don’t push too hard either. In love, as in life, timing is everything. The other side of the coin is that you could meet someone that knocks your socks off. It could last or it could be a flash, but that flash will change how you see yourself and the world. If you’ve been doing your work and growing as a person, you will feel more mature and proud of yourself and your accomplishments. All the forces are there for you to use: imagination, boundaries, power and a desire to experience life to its fullest. Give up trying to impress others, and impress yourself. Stop flipping back and forth between giving in for attention and ignoring the feelings of others when you don’t need them. As long as your teeter-totter goes up and down, so do you and you don’t advance, you just stay in the same position and experience its opposites over and over again.

Since you love excitement this next aspect should give you a thrill. Mercury and Mars make an exiting trine to Uranus – you will not be bored. The truth is, the changes and gifts that are coming your way will provide enough excitement even for you. Your mind is sharp and unfortunately your impatience is also enhanced. The challenge is to sit still and receive. If you don’t, you might miss an important opportunity. Being calm is not being bored if you’re interested in what you are doing, thinking and feeling. If you’re not, then only a crowd will do.  

The Jupiter opposition to Uranus can help you out by making you feel strong and independent. That’s what you need, confidence in your ability to handle life’s challenges. It’s time to believe in yourself and make things happen – your way. You may have yearned for independence, but it doesn’t come without responsibility and maturity, otherwise it’s just a momentary thrill or escape. The more respect you give yourself the less you’ll need the approval of others. Now that’s freedom.

This is a month to feel your power, to set some important limits so that you can experience your strength. Don’t get lost in your imagination, instead let it support those goals and bring you new ideas on how to make them work. You’re a lover by nature, so even if things are not exactly the way you want, don’t worry, you’re a magnet for the essence of life, learn to honor it with the right person, someone who doesn’t just love you, but also respects you and what you bring to the table. If they don’t, then it won’t feel like love, it will feel like punishment.
