If the world seems a little topsy turvy going into September, chalk it up to seven retrograde planets (Venus, Mercury, Uranus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto). Our world may seem a little off kilter but sometimes seeing things in a new way is refreshing.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
It is a good time to focus on shoring up your finances, Aries. What you thought was on course may need some redirection. Economics and personal priorities change or at least evolve. The time for careful reflection is now but don’t jump into anything prematurely. Give yourself time to reflect and map out all the possibilities.
TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)
Friendships and the dynamics of operating within a group may be in for a reassessment, Taurus. How you best interact may change or at least shift according to the group. You can be a schmoozer and a groover so use your best moves to your best advantage. This may be a time of experimentation. See what works.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your ambitions take priority, Gemini. Review your career path and progress of any long term project. Check for any possible surprises or unexpected obstacles as you examine your landscape. There are those who can help you although they may not make themselves known immediately. Give yourself time to decide.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If you are planning any travel, check to be sure everything is in place before you depart, Cancer. This is especially true if you are traveling with friends as there could be some unexpected changes along the way. Be sure that you are able to see everything you want to see and have the experiences run as smoothly as possible.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Balance is everything in this life, Leo. That means that your career should be in harmony with other parts of your personal life so that there is less stress and more happiness. What can you do to balance the scales so that those close to you feel loved and appreciated while you can still tackle work responsibilities?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
There are new things to learn regarding some of your more important relationships, Virgo. The secret to your success is to carefully observe others and understand the dynamics of partnerships. Some may need some tweaking but others are in a state of evolution. Don’t decide which is which now. You have time to ascertain.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If you have been feeling a bit tired or feeling not quite yourself spend some time on self-care, personal examination and relaxation, Libra. You may also want to have a medical check up to see if there are things you can do to feel more restored and active. Life can be very hectic. The solution here is to strive for balance.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Get into the groove of fun, Scorpio. But know that this may be a time of having too much fun as invitations and pastimes pile up on your plate. Your social life heats up to a boil. What you expect from certain activities may not be so and what you decide to do may have more challenges than you expect. Do the slow dance.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Family can become engaged in some of your projects, if you ask them, Sagittarius. They care about you and want the best. But if you prefer to work on things more independently, you could find their suggestions and actions a bit intrusive and overdone. Share what you want with them but be prepared for their input.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Try to be very clear and super sure of your communications, Capricorn. That is because some of your more fun plans can get a bit out of control and beyond your ability to handle them. Manage others’ expectations and see what you can do to tailor each festive experience to the right crowd. Sometimes less is more.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Family obligations might have a price tag attached to them, Aquarius. And that is not a bad thing, especially if you feel in control of all of the decision-making. The snag is when dynamics get out of control and others don’t listen to your sage advice. Be patient and extra careful in what you promise and to whom.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
While you might enjoy being in the total center of attention, there may be times when you secretly hope for a graceful exit. Don’t be afraid to let others know how you feel but make your arguments kind and diplomatic. Others have their own minds set but you find a way to get through their foggy thinking with some wise ideas.
