Daily General Horoscopes - Thursday 19 September
This is a day where there is not only a need to take the good with the bad but where the so called bad is equally empowering. A supercharged alliance between Mars on the job and Pluto on the career front brings the planets of war and revolution together, just as Saturn has turned the professional lights green. This is a major turning point in this professional year and the start of a shift that is now unstoppable. Yet an opposition between Venus and Chiron might create some personal and/or relationship tension, with the planets of love and healing on a mission to exorcise some old ghosts.
To have the Moon not only in Taurus but at a friendly aspect to Saturn during his first full day in direct motion in an adventurous part of your chart gives you an unmistakable sense that old barriers or the hold the past had on you is gone. This also gives you an intuitive edge of special alignment that begins today between Mars in a playful and Pluto in an adventurous part of your chart. The planets of war and revolution have come together to declare war on any rut you have found yourself in and the timing couldn't be better.
This is a week with undercurrents that could make things appear more challenging than they actually are. On the heels of the weekend's Full Moon and with your emotional responses more sensitive, there is a danger of not seeing the wood for the trees or of creating challenges where there are none. The Moon's return to Gemini tomorrow will give you a more accurate read on things, with a need to avoid sweating the small stuff. As corny as it might sound, deep breaths and counting to 10 can keep things in perspective. Just playing the gratitude game for a few minutes can also help.
Regardless of the mask we show the outside world, we all have challenges, self doubt and times when our confidence takes a hit. It is part of the human condition. This year has been especially tough on you, but as the tide starts to turn attitude really is everything. As you look back at where you've been and forward to where to from here, focus on what you have learned and how you can apply this to the future. And while you're at it, hang that superhero clock at the very back of the wardrobe and give yourself a break. If the person putting the most pressure on you is you, the conditions are right for putting a stop to that.
The most powerful thing about Saturn's direct turn is that we get to push the 'reset' button. After five months in retrograde motion, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos has taken you back to any lessons you need to learn and will now start moving forward again, with a chance for a do over. This time, knowing now what you didn't then. While Saturn is in your work sector and this is especially relevant on the job front, this also includes anything health related or just how you spend your time. For all those 'people pleasers' out there and we are all to some degree, don't stop being there for others but you need to be the one making those choices.
From nine months to ninety years old and everything in between, play and adventure is vital for our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being and it can't be something that gets squashed into small breaks in our busy lives. In his first full day in direct motion in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, he has wrapped up five months of learning from the past. Today's adventurous lunar vibes help drum home the message that life can't be all work and no play, at a time when Mars is fuelling your passions and fighting spirit.
In the lead up to the beginning of your birthday month and new solar year, the Sun will always call for time out to hear yourself think. Yet with Venus and Mercury already in their early days in Libra, this is giving you a sneak peek. They will still be here when the Sun returns in four days' time, giving you a chance to do some window shopping. With heart and mind on the same page, this is a chance explore your options without the pressure to commit to anything. The biggest danger right now is taking this too seriously, thinking you have to reinvent the wheel. The message from Venus, your ruling planet, is to have fun with this.
For all of us with Saturn, the hard taskmaster but also the teacher of the cosmos in retrograde motion for the last five months, it has been hard to escape the past. And with Saturn in an area of your chart that not only rules communication but the intellectual mind, this may have led to overthinking things, finding yourself playing the 'woulda, shoulda, coulda' game. As Saturn spends his first full day in direct motion there is a chance to push the 'reset' button, choosing to use the knowledge gained to create a new starting point. With Pluto still in retrograde motion you still have an eye on the rear view mirror, but without Saturn's need to learn from the past.
To have Saturn in your income doesn't just make it about the money, with the hard taskmaster of the cosmos focused on the root cause or influence. Money is just one of life's currencies. When Saturn left Sagittarius in December 2017 he wrapped up a three year boot camp that gave you a chance to learn who you really are, something Jupiter is now expanding on. Since then Saturn has been focused on helping you learn what is important to you and what you value and as he spends his first full day in direct motion, the focus has turned from the past to the future. The last five months have been a learning experience, with a chance to draw a new line in the sand.
Having Saturn in Capricorn is never going to be easy because it is not designed to be. Saturn returned in December 2017 for the first time since 1991 and since then has been helping you take your power back. In order to do that you first have to learn who you are and over the last five months, in retrograde motion Saturn has brought a chance to learn from the past. As Saturn spends his first full day in direct motion a corner has been turned and with Jupiter now less than 11 weeks away from Capricorn, there is a chance to look to the future rather than the past.
Even though Saturn, one of the most powerful planets in the solar system is now in direct motion, he is still in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. However, this has shifted the focus and will have major implications over the coming months. Until then, even before turning retrograde, Saturn has been focused on closure, with everything launched when he was last in Aquarius, which he was from 1991 to 1994, now coming to a close. While this will continue, in retrograde motion and returning to Aquarius in March, you are all of a sudden looking to the future, with the lines between the past, present and future starting to blur.
Mars and Pluto, the planets of war and revolution are 'brothers from another mother' and anytime they get to work together is a chance for both to perform at their best. On the heels of a Full Moon that over the weekend exposed any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs, Mars and Pluto come together today to create some serious support for friendship and relationship building. That the Moon just happens to be in your communication sector is a bonus. This is not only a good day for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building but for making things happen.
