Aries 20 March – 19 April

Ongoing concerns around your job will pop up again this month. You may as well accept that your frustration is because you want a change. And the only way to get that; is to change! There is a delightful celebration to enjoy so let yourself feel young at heart. There will soon be something important to discuss so have your own ideas ready.


Taurus 20 April – 20 May

Accept that you are tied to where you are at the moment. The time to move in another direction is not yet here. Enjoy where you are; as home is where the heart is. Young people or children, probably yours, will let you know that they a new direction for themselves. Keep yourself in the loop, as things will progress quickly.


Gemini 21 May – 20 June

If you want to stay calm then stay out of any work issues. They are reacting emotionally and it will soon pass. Family will take up your time and attention and there is a need to pick up the phone or go for a visit. It’s a great month to make decisions that benefit everybody.


Cancer 21 June – 21 July

It’s time to move, literally and figuratively, as there is a building restlessness in you that need release. Perhaps this means a lot of travel; even local travel. The car may as well be your home this month. Long distance travel, aka a holiday, would be perfect! Let loved ones have their work issues. Its time for you to stretch you wings.


Leo 22 July – 22 Aug

The goddess of love and good times enters Leo giving you a sense of magnetic attraction and opportunities. Imagine the best, and it will happen; but imagine the worse and it will also happen. The great lady will try to give you the picture you carry in your head and heart.  So it’s time to change the picture; and be real quick about it!


Virgo 23 Aug – 22 Sep

You have information that you must share with another and this will be an emotional time for them. And you can help by simply being there. The coming New Moon in your sign is a great time to start new plans or implement ideas for your future. Children continue to be a source of worry; but as a Virgo you do that anyhow!


Libra 23 Sep – 22 Oct

I hope everyone else lets you get the quiet time you need. It’s a time to reflect and notice past patterns, which may be part of family history. Why do the stars give us motivation to do this? Well I think sometimes we may need to clearly see the past to change the future. Reflect, learn, listen and speak.


Scorpio 23 Oct – 21 Nov

Good luck enters your work zone so expect some progress. The stars do what they can and this time they cannot fix it; but they will improve it. It seems you cannot speak, or that others do not understand what you are saying. Align yourself with a group as a united front can achieve great things. And they can speak for you!


Sagittarius 22 Nov – 20 Dec

There are lots going on in the place you work or in your role in the community with new expectations. Do you want to step up and take on a different role? You better plan real quickly; or “they” will decide what you are doing. You want to hang onto your money but somehow it’s always needed, and not necessarily by you!


Capricorn 21 Dec – 19 Jan

Now is the time to learn something. When you are feeling restless, uptight or even nervous, you will know that your mind needs to be exercised! It’s like Black Caviar at the start of the race. Raring to go! Study of any sort will help you relax and adapt to changes. Giving the house a makeover will dissipate some of your mental energy. 


Aquarius 20 Jan – 17 Feb

You are about to enter secret places. Hidden information will reveal itself. And keeping things dark and quiet is not something you are necessarily good at. So think carefully before you blurt out the truth. It may be needed; or it may not. Or it may just need to stay with you.  Oh.. and do be careful about lending or borrowing anything.


Pisces 18 Feb – 19 March

This month is all about meeting new people, making new friends, talking and networking. So get a bigger phone plan in case you go over your cap. Especially as money will continue to be an issue over the coming months. If I were you I’d start a budget and stick to it so you can achieve your long-term goals.




A lot of people do not realise that the Sun moves into the 12 signs of the zodiac on slightly different dates each year. If you are born close to the border of two signs then you are on the cusp and you are a blend of the two sun signs. The dates here are the 2012 Sun Ingress dates for Australia.

Whats that in the Sky Sep 2012? Seeing Astrology in Action! September 3, 2012

For all you early birds


Venus and Jupiter are visible in the eastern sky. Jupiter is the highest while Venus is the lowest and the brightest. Jupiter is near Aldebaran in the eye of Taurus the Bull and if you look a little to the left you will see the glitter of the Pleiades also known as the 7 sisters.


Venus will move during the month and will soon be invisible when she becomes lost in the glare of sunrise. Let the Moon be your guide when she will be next to Jupiter on the 9th Sep and next to Venus on the 13th Sep.



For all you night owls


At the beginning of the month Saturn and Mars are visible in the western sky. Let the Moon be your guide when she is next to creamy colored Saturn on the 18th Sep and next to reddish Mars on the 19th Sep. But later in the month Saturn will be moving closer and closer to the Sun. It will soon be only visible at sunset and eventually disappear into the brightness of the Sun.


The magnificent Scorpio will be visible in the evening in the west and will be moving closer and closer to the horizon almost as if he is diving head first into the land. The Southern Cross is nearly upside down low on the southern horizon and moving to its side during the month. 


Happy Birthday


Virgo 23rd August – 22nd Sep

“Charm is the way of getting the answer Yes without having asked any clear questions”. E.M Forster


 The collective noun for Librans is “a scale of Librans”.


 Thank you to the Libran who showed me that tact and diplomacy is mightier than the sword!



31st Aug Full Moon in Pisces

1st Sep Mercury enters Virgo

7th Sep Venus enters Leo

16th Sep New Moon in Virgo

17th Sep Mercury enters Libra

18th Sep Pluto goes retrograde in Capricorn

19th Sep Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn 

23rd Sep Spring Equinox when the Sun enters Libra

30th Sep Full Moon in Aries


At the equinox the Sun is directly overhead at the equator. It will rise due east and set due west.  That means that both the northern and southern hemispheres get an equal amount of night and daylight hours.


The movement of the planets herald time when we feel mood changes, times we are galvanized to take action, and others times when we lack energy. There are shifts in feelings and energy levels at all New and Full Moons, when planets move into signs, or when there are connections (aspects) between planets, or when they turn retrograde or move direct again.

Pay attention to the days when these shifts happen and notice your feelings and energy levels. This understanding will enhance your experience of life. Enjoy the ride!
