If Your Birthday is Sept. 13
(The Day of Passionate Care) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Your mind is moving at a remarkable speed, though you must slow down your process of making decisions. It’s essential that you check carefully with what you’ve learned from past experiences. Then you must ask yourself what you really and truly want. If you combine these two methods, you’ll see your options for what they are — and that’s when to consider choosing.
Written in the Planets
Today brings the last quarter Moon. This marks the last phase of the lunar cycle that began with the Aug. 21 solar eclipse and New Moon. So although the eclipse effects will continue to ripple out and develop on the macro level, on the more immediate or micro level, something seems to be winding down. What project will you bring to completion in the next week? The sky offers additional questions today. An opposition between Mars in Virgo and centaur planet Nessus in Pisces seems to be asking where your industriousness or eagerness to serve is being confronted by emotional patterns that get in your way. By facing them, you have a chance to stop the proverbial buck. At the same time, the Virgo Sun is square Saturn in Sagittarius. You may feel like you have to choose between self-gratification and fulfilling your duties to others. The best way to find out if you’re really as restricted as you think you are is to ask; don’t assume. Have an adult-to-adult conversation with the person ‘in charge’, and channel any impatience into self-discipline.
