Cosmic Diaries: September Monthly & Jupiter in Libra Horoscopes – 2016 – 2017
— by Priya Kale
ARIES – If you’ve felt like you’ve been fighting a lonely battle, you can breathe a sigh of relief as people finally step up to the plate. On the other hand, if the cracks are starting to show in a situation or relationship, this is your chance to heal and restore peace, starting with recognizing your role in its creation. “It takes two to tango.” Remember this as Jupiter enters and moves through Libra, your relationship zone, over the coming year. Your relationships are moving to the next level, have a lot to offer. You have more than one attractive option to choose from and can form successful financial and creative partnerships that you make a formidable team with. In personal relationships too, there’s real support and love in your world, especially, one significant other who does truly love you. Relationships are at best a mirror and yours have a lot to teach you: about yourself and the way this world works. If you don’t like what you’re getting, or seeing; rather than look to blame others, ask yourself what you could do differently. Or where you might be giving with expectations, which often leads to disappointment. Acknowledge the relationships that heal and challenge you to grow, and those you’ve outgrown. Be clear on your long-term goals — personally, professionally, in relationships — then it will be easier to align with and inspire the support of others who share your vision. You know people who have walked the path you are on, who can offer you valuable advice, guidance and be your companions on the road ahead. It takes humility to listen, admit your mistakes, and where you have been wrong, but there is nothing shameful about it. You’re learning what it means to have equal partnerships, which ask for mutual love, respect, shared values, a balance of give and take, ability to forgive, learn, grow and work as a team towards a higher purpose and common goal. Love is not something you get or give, but something you share; and respect is not something you demand, it has to be earned. As long as there is mutual love and respect, you can find a way forward that works for everyone, allowing you to restore peace and harmony in any situation. Above all what you need is perspective. Life is a journey and there’s more love and tangible support in your life than any lack. Regardless of what you’ve feared, you need not make this journey alone.
TAURUS – Jupiter enters Libra this month, and transits through your 6th House over the coming year, bringing your health, work, daily routines and really your whole life into focus. The key is — balance, balance, balance. You have more creative potential and love within you than most dream of, and you’ve barely scratched the surface. Finding a work-life balance has been a challenge in the past, but with a little effort, things can get a lot easier and sweeter now; allowing you to get back in the swing of things, where recently you’ve felt stuck. Work will be busier, but it’s important you balance it with down time to have fun, be inspired, and rest. You can also make huge progress this year with project dear to your heart, which could potentially be very financially lucrative. It’s not necessarily about working harder, but smarter — creative solutions abound. Ultimately its your selfless devotion, that’s worth its weight in gold. You can create the life you desire, that gives back to the world, and have fun doing. It starts with creating space for it, and letting go of attachments you’ve outgrown — emotionally, materially, mentally, psychologically. It will also call making conscious, creative, wise choices in how you use your time, money and energy in every moment. There’s something to the old saying “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a wo/man healthy, wealthy and wise” that would serve you well this year. In personal relationships, you’ve learned difficult lessons over the past four years, but there is deep healing on offer now. It may sound like a tall order: but you can have the sexual passion, chemistry, intimacy, security, deep love, companionship and someone to share life’s ups and downs with, (peacefully, without the drama) — if you are not attached to it; or anyone in particular, and are not afraid to put up boundaries. No relationship is perfect, and all relationships require compromise give and take. Take things a day at time; as long as there is growth, mutual love, and healing, you can find a balance that is right for you. As you make healthier choices, you can heal and resurrect a relationship, or attract the right partner to you. Even if you’re currently single, you’re certainly not alone. You have a lot of love to give, and it’s important you share it with all you meet — from your colleagues, to your doorman, to the person in the street. It is not your job to determine who is or isn’t worthy of love and a small act of kindness could change someone’s world. And you never know when or where, you will meet (perhaps a special) someone who will change your world. There is a devotional aspect to this energy — asking you to live your “dharma” (faith) and offer “seva” (selfless service.) Ultimately what matters is your quality of life if your life is a gift to others, and if the world is more beautiful because of it. Dig deep to find what brings you joy and put your heart in every little thing you do — it is in giving you receive. Then your life will blossom and your presence itself will be a healing one that lingers like fragrance. You’re learning — when you love life, life loves you back.
GEMINI —Jupiter enters Libra this month, your 5th house, the part of your chart that relates with love, sex and sexuality, romance, children, creativity, adventure, passion and inner-most self — highlighting these themes in your life. There’s something or someone you want now, that’s deep under your skin, and makes your heart skip a beat. It will call for you to be spontaneous, confident put your heart on the line. Naturally it can be scary to be vulnerable, but the real risk would be to pass up a chance to be happy. You could fall in love, perhaps all over again. Creatively too your blossoming with ideas and can form lucrative partnership with others who inspire you. Whether you’ve known someone for fifteen minutes or fifteen years — what matters is honesty about where you stand today, which starts with yourself. There’s nothing wrong with love, sex, both, or either; but know the difference and what it is that you want. If there is hesitation, or something’s holding you back, dig deeper to get to the heart of a matter; be honest and acknowledge your insecurities, fears, desires — which often masquerade as each other. You’ve been burned before, but if you’ve learned from the past you needn’t have a guard up or fear re-creating your patterns. Love is not something you get or give, it’s something you share; a flowering of your being. And true love or happiness, cannot depend on anyone or anything external, nor can it come at another’s expense — or it will be fleeting. It has to be rooted in the self to be lasting. Dig deep as you explore what brings you joy, inner peace and makes glad to be alive. Love yourself; take up a hobby or do something you’ve always wanted — with or without a partner. You could meet someone who gets you on a whole other level, and helps you discover new parts of yourself, or reconnect with a partner in a whole new way. Children too have a lot to teach you about love, life, being in the moment, playing nice, and not holding on to resentments. It might take a while to find your balance but, the more you step out of your comfort zone, you will discover talents, abilities, desires and parts of yourself you didn’t know existed. Every moment is a new moment, and your choices in the present are creating your reality. Put the past behind you as create and live a life you love. Regardless of your doubts: you’re more attractive, creative, charming, loving, and sexier than you realize and there’s nothing more attractive than someone who loves life. When in doubt, trust and follow your heart — it’s wiser than you think and will not lead you astray.
CANCER – As Jupiter enters and transits through Libra, your 4th House, there’s opportunity knocking. For some this might mean a physical move, change in family dynamic or a domestic partnership; you could be buying or selling property. The transit suggests an expansion on the home front, and a year that finds you growing in your sense of emotional and financial security; as you deepening your closest relationships and support system. You’ve been working hard over the past year, and your efforts are paying off. Now you get a chance to put your feet up, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor more; and you could even save up a little nest egg. This doesn’t mean there won’t be work, on the contrary, you’re likely to be busier than ever; but you’re also (hopefully) learning to prioritize, and to say “no”. It’s crucial to have a work-life balance with time to retreat to the comforts of home, rest, re-charge and find your inner peace, balance, well-being. Without which your health, work, relationships, family life all suffer and you risk destabilizing everything you’ve worked so hard for. A house is not a home, unless you share it with those you love; and home is where the heart is. You will have plenty of opportunities to entertain this year — it seems like a festive time. If on the other hand, a domestic or family situation is out of balance, or you’re feeling overwhelmed with all that’s on your plate — this is your chance to renegotiate important arrangements so they work better for everyone. Get to the bottom of the truth and talk about the elephant in the room, rather than play the blame game, or point fingers, or focus on surface, daily irritations and distractions. What was your childhood like? Did you feel emotionally and financially secure and supported? Was it a peaceful, loving environment? What was your parents’ relationship like? You can’t change the past, for better or worse — but you can let go of past resentments, and painful memories that keep you trapped in your head and past; and get out of a vicious, unproductive cycle. Be honest with yourself and you can recognize what and who truly matters, then make choices accordingly. It will call for honesty, love, fairness, and forgiveness; but you can heal a rift and restore peace in a situation. You’re learning, no matter how crazy it gets out there — you have support from your family (blood and/or soul,) and inner circle that truly love you. Financially too, you have a safety net; be wise and you can make your resources go far. Clear space of what you’ve outgrown, from old mental attitudes, to past realities, and you can create room for the abundance and good times entering your world. This is the stuff happy memories are made of.
LEO – As Jupiter transits through Libra over the coming year — above all keep an open mind and perspective on all that’s unfolding. Where you begin is not where you will end up and this is a crossroads in your journey, towards greater emotional and financial security. Your 3rd House is the part of your chart that relates with communication, transportation, short distance travel, education, siblings — and Jupiter’s presence is magnifying these themes. You’re learning valuable information now that could have you leaping for joy. You have big, creative ideas, and more than one attractive option to choose from. No matter what seems urgent, or however passionately you feel — explore your options before you commit. You needn’t try pleasing anyone, or overselling yourself — being it a creative, financial or personal relationship or situation. Everything is negotiable and your powers of persuasion are through the roof. Use them wisely; avoid compromising your values and you can find a balance and arrangement that works. There’s no perfect choice; at best you can make creative, conscious choices from the heart that make you happy and give you peace of mind. It comes down to honest, heartfelt communication. Avoid suppressing the truth to keep the peace, or engage in passive-aggressive behavior and allow resentment to build. If something upsets you, take a deep breath. Be honest with yourself about your insecurities, desires, fears, needs, then it will be easier to express yourself and restore peace in a situation; and/or ask for what you want — and get it. How you say something matters, as much as what you say; sometimes its wiser to not say anything at all and listen — the truth is sweeter than you think. Also, love is not a four-letter word — it’s an action and state of being. And if you say you want something, what concrete steps are you taking towards a goal? You’re growing in wisdom, the kind that comes from life experiences rather than book knowledge. Admit when you don’t know, and you can learn what you need to. Have faith in your most optimistic, beautiful and hopeful, vision and you can make wise, balanced, thoughtful choices and breathe it to life.
VIRGO – You’ve grown in leaps and bounds over the past year — in wisdom, self-awareness and awareness of your potential. Not all of this has been easy, as much as it has brought you gifts; there have also been growing pains. Now as Jupiter enters Libra, you might feel yourself breathing a sigh of relief to not be in the spotlight so much. Libra rules your 2nd House of income, self-esteem, commitments and values; and over the coming year, there can be a substantial growth in your emotional and material security. But it starts with you being clear on your values, what and who you value, and why. Also what were your parents values surrounding money and relationships? You’re not who you were a month ago, let alone a year ago. Yet you are more in touch with a core part of yourself than ever before. You value fairness, honesty, equality, balance and peace in your commitments— and you’re building a new life based on these foundations. You have power in your life; let go of a tug-of war and you can breakthrough old patterns, and restore peace in an unpredictable financial, relationship or situation that has threatened your sense of security. You have a lot to offer, and can afford to be generous with your time and money — but you needn’t “give” so people will like you. We attract what we think we are worth — so value yourself first and allow people to prove their loyalty to you before giving away the farm. Acknowledge what you need to feel safe in a commitment, emotionally as well as financially — let go of expectations, and pay attention to who shows up. Then you can choose the situations you want to invest in, invite deeper into your life; and learn who you can really count on when the chips are down. You have more to gain, than anything you fear losing — but what you feed is what will grow. Invest your time, energy, money, love and resources wisely in relationships and situation you share values with. Then you can deepen relationships that value and appreciate you — and give back to you equally. Contrary to your fears, you have more to gain than any fear of losing and a difficult chapter is behind. Stop looking over your shoulder and you can embrace the emotional and financial abundance and prosperity entering your world. But the greatest reward will be your growing self-esteem and realization of what you are truly worth. It’s a lot more than you think.
LIBRA – You’ve been through a lot over the past year, most of which you probably still can’t find words to express. But Jupiter enters Libra this month for a period of a year — making you the belle or beau of the ball. Over the coming year you’re growing in wisdom, self-awareness, you have luck on your side and lot going for you. But there will also be growing pains, and times when it feels like you’re fumbling through the dark. So, are you the passenger or driver in your life? What or who is motivating and driving your choices? You will never know it all, but you needn’t doubt yourself. Be humble enough to admit when you don’t know and don’t be afraid to ask for help — you know people who can guide and advise you on your path. You are wiser and more capable that you think. As long as you make choices in faith and your most optimistic vision, rather than fear, anger, or any heated emotions; they will lead you further along your road to your chosen destination. Most importantly have faith in yourself, and your ability to deal with situation as they arise. Your relationships with sibling/s, and close significant others, is also coming into focus with this transit. Honest communication is the way forward; which means being honest with yourself first and learning to set boundaries when necessary – especially if you’ve been giving more than your share. When dealing with sensitive subjects, it’s not just what you say but how you say it. Acknowledge your desires, needs, doubts, fears, insecurities, but avoid projecting them. If you find yourself heated, upset, fearful, angry, suspicious, paranoid, mistrusting or at a loss for words — take a step back. The truth always comes out. You’re nobody’s fool, but you can afford to be the bigger person. Be generous with your love and give where you feel led – but let go of expectations of what you will receive. You needn’t trust anyone blindly — trust is something that is earned and built over time, through consistency and action – which means doing what you say you will do. Pay attention to someone’s actions, rather than words, and you can learn what you need to know. You don’t have the full picture yet; be open minded, listen, and you can make wise, informed choices. It all comes down to you finding your inner sense of balance, fairness, honesty and justice. You’re blossoming and blooming into your full potential; this is an inner flowering of your being. You can have what you need, and you might even get what you want. But we don’t always know what’s best for us — so ask the Universe for guidance, say the Serenity prayer and be grateful for all your blessings. Be kind to yourself and love yourself better. As you grow in wisdom and inner-beauty, your presence itself will be a calming influence, speaking volumes without you having to utter a word; like a fragrance that lingers in one’s mind for eternity, attracting what you desire to you like bees to honey.
SCORPIO – As Jupiter enters Libra this month and transits through the sign over the coming year, the energy reminds me of the story of the footprints in the sand. This is the part of your chart that relates with your dreams, subconscious, all that is unseen and ‘hidden behind the veil, the “pleasures of the bed,” what happens behind closed doors, and “God”. If at times it seems your faith is being tested, there is a kind, benevolent Universe and God watching over your every step and breath. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, you have the potential to meet and/or deepen a relationship/s on a soul level. But soul-mate relationships contrary to any romantic fantasy or notions, are the most challenging ones; demanding that we do the work — of soul growth. Which means letting go of attachments to ideas of a “relationship” (whatever that means for you) and learning unconditional love. Also, it’s important you don’t compare yourself to others, friends or worry about public opinion. Acknowledge your subconscious desires, especially hidden desires, about a relationship, sexually, and hopes and dreams that you might not dare admit to yourself. You’re becoming aware of subconscious patterns, especially in relationships, that keep you unconsciously trapped in a destructive or less than healthy cycle. As Carl Jung said — “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” There is something rather secretive about this chart, but then you’re a Scorpio. The whole world need not know your business, but be honest with those that matter, especially with yourself. Then you can be a conscious co-creator of your life with the Universe. Creatively too, some of your best work is happening in the dark, in the quiet moments of inspiration. Take time to be alone, meditate, use your imagination. You may not be ready to reveal your masterpiece yet, or may wonder where the finances or resources will something will come from. But this is a soul mission and the Universe’s dream for you. You even have benefactors and angels in the wings looking out for you and the Universe knows what you need before you even ask. Whatever you need put the word out there, let go of expectations, and be open to receive. Whatever is unfolding in your life externally, this is really an inner spiritual journey of discovering and becoming “One” with, the unconditional love that is within you, that the Universe has for you, that surrounds you everyday in ways seen and unseen.
SAGITTARIUS – Your ruler Jupiter changes signs to enter Libra this month, your 11th House — represents your hopes, wishes, dreams, “fulfilment of wishes,” friends, social networks, highlighting these themes over the coming year. You’ve also had Saturn in your sign since late 2015, asking for self-mastery. Regardless of what you’ve feared, you are respected in your field, your reputation precedes you — and you’re more loved, admired and appreciated than you realise. But you will know, this is not about fame or success, or your public image. You have a duty now, to yourself and your community to share your gifts. Consciously let go of old aspirations, so you can free yourself to explore the new possibilities presenting themselves. As they say, it’s not just what you know but who you know. Your social circle is widening, offering you opportunities to meet people and new friends who could further your goals. You also have supportive, loving and loyal friends, who truly are your wealth. Just be wise about the company you keep; friendship is a two way street. Be authentic and you can attract equal friendships that appreciate, and give back to, you as much as much you them. Also, avoid comparing yourself to others, or trying to please or live up to someone else standards or ideas of success. You can never please everyone, and there will always be naysayers. You needn’t give in to others doubts they will come around to see the light in time. You have a plan, now have faith in yourself, be confident and you can inspire support from those that share your vision. In your personal relationships, you’re learning to find a balance between love and friendship. Offer another the freedom and acceptance that you too need, and you can deepen a connection. This year brings you to a turning point, allowing you to truly liberate yourself and reclaim your place in the world. Whether its financial freedom, greater personal or creative freedom, you seek you can have it. Your fairy Godmother is looking out for you and you can have what you wish for, so choose wisely. A cherished personal goal you’ve long yearned and hoped for is within reach; and the Universe supports your most altruistic goals. You are blessed and loved — be open to receive.
CAPRICORN — Jupiter enters your 10th House this month, to join Venus and will transit through the sign over the coming year. This is the part of your chart that represents your career, profession and public image. This is where you’re in your element, with all eyes on you, doing what you do best, and making it seem like a breeze. The past few years have not been a walk in the park but you’ve grown in wisdom of your goals and the greater meaning of your life. You’ve been exploring your options and now you have a huge opportunity to that could catapult your career, image, and a cherished goal to the next level. All the success in the world would be hollow, if it didn’t mean something to you. The question isn’t if you can achieve something, but what do you want to achieve? What do you want to be known for? Keep your perspective, and stay aligned with a soul ambition, rather than any desire or temptation. There is no such thing as fast success, and if you unconsciously or consciously try to chase success, you’re likely to trip, lose your balance or lose your way. This is about who you are, when no one is watching. The truth always comes out, and any success built on less that your highest ideals, goals, and deepest soul truth, is in danger of coming down like a house of cards, or at the least will be fleeting and meaningless. You have big shoes to fill, but keep your perspective, stay true to your integrity and have more faith. It will call for a balance between career and unpredictable situation at home, and your sense of security. But you are moving past your parents’ boundaries and ambitions for you, paving the path for those that will follow after you. Be guided by your inner compass and you can make wise choices that lead you to the success that you can truly be proud of and that allows you to live out your potential. You are a visionary: think big, think global. You have the power to give back to the world, as you breathe life into a soul vision that truly uplifts humanity. This is not just about your success, but your opportunity to create a world that you would like to live in, and pass on to your children, their children and generations to come.
AQUARIUS — A situation has taken a lot out of you over the past year — emotionally, financially, physically and psychologically. But your fortunes are turning now, liberating, and perhaps even vindicating you in a situation where you’ve been unfairly treated. There’s still unfinished business to take care of, but as Jupiter enters Libra, your 9th house — far from being trapped you seemed spoilt for choice, with more than one enticing option, which could be your golden ticket to the freedom you yearn for. You’re likely to pondering the bigger philosophical questions of life, death and love. Whether literally, physically, metaphorically or spiritually, you’re on journey that’s due to be life changing, opening new doors personally and professionally. Consciously release past baggage and attachments, as you recognize what truly matters to you above all, then you can truly travel light and be free to embrace and explore new possibilities. This transit is also highlighting themes involving foreign countries, foreign travel, foreign cultures and languages, publishing, the higher mind, higher education, God, spirituality and the law. Some of you might be migrating to another country or dealing with red-tape and legal matters, but you have more going for you than you realise. Your international and foreign connections have a lot to offer you — especially, perhaps one special someone. Take your time getting to know someone, then you needn’t fear getting carried away, or building castles in the air; or prematurely judge someone or something, that could be perfect for you. You have a choice in which road you choose and you needn’t feel judged for your choices. Take stock of your long-term goals — personally, professionally, in your relationships. The happiness and freedom you seek — personally, in a relationship, financially and or creatively is very much within reach. It will push your mental boundaries of what you think is possible, and ask you to surrender control if you want to experience a higher love. But whatever unfolds externally: keep your perspective, an open mind, and eyes on the prize. You cannot control the world, anyone, or anything; but you are free to live your life on your terms as long as you accept the consequences of your choices and actions. You’re growing in wisdom, awareness of your freedom, voice, and true power in the world and this is your journey of finding happiness you didn’t dare imagine possible. When in doubt — follow your heart; choose in faith and your most optimistic vision, rather than any fear or sense of urgency. It will call for a leap of faith but, the powers that be are looking down on you favorably and, someone up/out there really cares. The truth will always set you free and in the words of Maya Angelou — “Love liberates.”
Your relationships have been under the spotlight over the past year, with Jupiter transiting through Virgo. Now as Jupiter enters Libra your 8th House, right between the Virgo-Pisces Eclipses, expect a year when your relationships, especially those where sex and money are involved, are evolving on a deep level, asking for a balance of power. If it seems like partners are unsure or backtracking, avoid trying control or manipulate any situation you feel out of control in, or it could backfire. You are not powerless, and have a choice in where you invest and feed your energy. What are your values surrounding money, sex, marriage? What were your parents’ values? What was their relationship like? What are the patterns you’ve outgrown? What are your expectations in a relationship? Do you tend to give more than your share? Do you hold yourself or others to impossible standards? Acknowledge where you feel wounded, what you need to feel secure your needs for honesty, and desires for greater intimacy — as well as your fears of it. You may not always agree with partners but if there is mutual respect and love, and you keep your channels of communication open, you can find a balance that works. Be honest with yourself, recognize the value of what you bring to the table; and invest in relationships that share your values, goals, and give back to you equally. Respect can’t be demanded it has to be earned; and no one can have power over you, unless you give that away. You may be the authority in your life, but unless everyone wins, everyone loses. The winds of change are blowing through your life; keep sight of your goals and you won’t get swept away. Contrary to what you’re expecting or fear, this need not be a painful process; and you have more to gain than any fear of losing – emotionally, financially and in terms of intimacy. But if you’re caught in a tug of war, I’d suggest you let go of the rope. If you surrender to a process rather than force it, the sooner things will naturally level out and you can trust what remains will be lasting and true. Letting go has never felt sweeter.
