Early Autumn Forecast for September and October 2014

All Signs:
We all feel the urge get more organized and on top of our respective games at this time of year. The back-to-school vibe is in the air! (Unless you’re affected by the BC teachers strike, like me.) The Sun sits in capable and practical Virgo and we’re eager to be more productive! We’re motivated to take care of things and we’re not intimidated by a little hard work (right folks?)! Mercury in Libra and Mars in Sagittarius encourage us to get out to festivals, cultural events, and playful social outings. Mercury does it’s final retrograde for 2014 throughout the month of October (did I just hear you groan?). Use this energy to strengthen existing connections and catch up with old friends. Past lovers and old flames might pop-up where you least expect them. (It’s not a boring time!)

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re on a role this fall, Aries! The trine between Jupiter and Uranus fires-up a ton of opportunities for you! You can tune-in to your inner heart’s desire and give shape to your dreams now. Of course this is not without effort we know, but you’re feeling more courageous than you have for a while. (That’s saying a lot for an Aries!) Many of you can really crank it up in relation to group efforts or team experiences. Your energy is tireless and you can win the acceptance and approval of many. Don’t let this time slip by! Ask yourself what areas you want to make some major changes in, and get down to it my friend.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Listen to your intuition now Taurus, especially in relation to your career path. Those of you involved in the arts or something creative can easily connect with their muse now! The Sun and Venus are energizing your self-confidence, giving you the permission to express your true nature. Love affairs and romantic opportunities can also bloom now too! When Mercury moves retrograde in October you might feel the impulse to go inward and get some quiet time, that’s ok. Your subconscious has something to say. (“Hello, is it me you’re looking for?”). This is an excellent time to get some peace or resolution to old issues that have been buried. Matters connected with family members can be healed now.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Connecting with groups will been important to you this fall, dear Gemini. This may be in the form of professional development, networking, or simply in the pursuit of a recreational interest. Whatever the case, you’re definitely going to expand your sphere of influence now! You’re feeling more assertive (and more talkative, seriously!), so you’re a great addition to a team. Education or training is looking more appealing than usual to some of you. Don’t be afraid to explore furthering your skill-sets. You’re a quick study if there ever was one! You might be inspired to get behind a humanitarian cause this fall. If there’s one that’s particularly dear to your heart, go for it!

Opportunities on the career front are looking pretty sweet right now, Cancer! If you need to find some financing or perhaps ask for a loan, this is a great time to submit a proposal. You’re eager to give shape to your aspirations in practical ways and that might also mean taking things in a whole new direction. This is a hot time to take your craft or service to the next level. You’re ready to make improvements to your practices — you want everything to run more efficiently. Meanwhile back at the ranch, you’ve got a ton of ideas flowing through you! Write them down or tell your partner – some of these ideas are gonna make you some money!

You can easily make some great headway in areas related to leadership, promotions, sales, or any causes that are dear to your heart. If you have any moneymaking ideas or suggestions for mutually beneficial arrangements – put these forth now. Others are willing to listen to you. As well, you’re keen to learn about new ways of life, philosophies, religions, or even spiritual paths. Put some budget aside and treat yourself to a weekend workshop, some new books, or some fresh music that inspires you.

You might experience some surprises during your birthday season this year, dear Virgo! Be prepared that things may not unfold exactly as you expect (did I hear a Virgoan groan?). Nevertheless, interesting opportunities, gifts, and fortunate events are in store for you. So keep your pockets open (and don’t look that gift horse in the mouth). If you need to raise some money, ask for a loan, or settle issues related to wills, taxes, estates, and insurance matters — late September and early October are your best times. Old business might come back around, but this time you’ll get things settled with a fresh spin. Any matters that require research will go smoothly, you can easily dig deep to find the answers you need.

Relationships are big focus for you now, Libra. This is an excellent time for any kind of bonding — be that romantic, friendship, or even bonding with workmates. New relationships that begin this fall will be exciting and possibly involve travel or education. Single Librans might meet someone unusual or from a very different background. Those already in partnership can benefit from recreational outings or learning something new together such as a wine tour, photography classes or maybe couples massage workshop. Spontaneous group outings will inspire and energize, so accept all invitations that come your way. Group experiences and team efforts will yield fantastic results. Head out and go to new places – it’s time to shake things up a little!

Career takes an upswing this season, Scorpio! You’re ready to try some new approaches and you’re thinking out-the-box. Bosses, teachers, and your adoring public are keen to learn more about you. Capitalize on this time and promote yourself or your cause now. Work place romances are likely, oh la la! You might find yourself attracted to someone older or more experienced than yourself this fall. On the home front, you’ve been making some changes and late September you can get down to the nitty-gritty details of a job or task that you’ve been putting off. The Solar Eclipse occurring in your sign on October 23rd is a magical and fertile time to set your personal intentions for the year ahead. Time to get your manifesting hat on!

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)

Some much-needed change is in the works for you, Sagittarius. Early born Sagittarians may have recently experienced it, while others are just walking into it now. Think of it as a time of cleansing. The decks are getting stripped as you prepare for a brand new cycle. Adjustments at home or with partners may have been trying. Fortunately with Jupiter in fellow fire sign Leo, you are feeling more optimistic. You’re more creative in your approach to solving problems you might have. Mars sits in your sign from September 13th to October 26th giving you greater strength and focus. If anyone has been crossing the line with you, you’re about to stand to your ground. Think about what you want to fight for!

There’s some extra bounce in your step making you more approachable and attractive now. Relationships get very cozy this autumn as new levels of intimacy are possible.

Your workload increased a lot in the last few years and this autumn you get to have a little fun!

(Don’t be bashful now, got it?) Influential people are going to shine their light in your direction and they want to learn what you’re all about. This is an excellent time to share your ideas, to take on a teaching role, or write that article you’ve been meaning to get to. As well, sweet windfalls of cash or goodies might find their way into your lap now. Your earnings are likely to be boosted somehow. If buying or investing, you’ll be drawn to art pieces or something that inspires beauty.
