Your Monthly Horoscope for September 2020
Zodiac in Translation: Horoscope

For consultation or more information please find Shari at her website:
Aries Astrological Symbol
Aries or Aries Rising: March 21– April 19
Aries, I’ve been thinking about how creative you are. I am also thinking about how important self-care will be this month as you balance work and home life. I challenge you, in terms of body and health to activate your creative thinking. You may feel a luscious surge in ambition but not at the cost of your living, breathing body. Even as we are faced with a world very changed, you still have opportunities to quiet the mind, find your breath, read a cookbook or prepare a quiet harvest of vegetables. Small life affirming habits aim to stabilize.
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20
Taurus, in a dream the other night I met one of my literary heroes. In that uncanny dream-kind-of-way I awoke thinking that we had met for real. I’ve been wondering who or what you dream of? Not just at night, but during the day. I feel that you might benefit this month from a making a good list, like, you know a really good list that will help prioritize the multitude of things you are trying to manifest. You may be getting lost in detail and minutia. Find the nearest number 2 pencil and a clean sheet of paper and see if this might help you streamline your desires.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21
Gemini, have you ever read a cookbook cover to cover? Recently I poured intrepidly through Francis Mallmann’s On Fire. A chef who values cooking outside and over an open fire, Mallman’s recipes make you want to spend more time at home. I like the metaphor of “home fires” for you this month as you’ll turn an eye to the homestead, either urban or rural. I encourage you to use your kitchen and home creatively and industriously. Acknowledge habits that you feel ready to change. Find a connection between the natural world and your personal rituals. Take a beat.
Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22
Cancer, I am really excited about Zadie Smith’s new small book of essays, published last month, called Intimations. Seems we are craving mirrors in such strange times, family, friends, cultural icons to help us make sense of the world. How are you doing making sense of the world, your world? I challenge you to resist analysis. I challenge you to watch, listen and observe, just as Smith did in one of her essays called Peonies as she looked on at a flower and found the world. Some have words, some have images, but the real question is this Cancer? How do you want to engage in the conversation?
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22
Leo, have you noticed that the peaches have ripened? This is the time of year that either you find them at the local grocery, or on your doorstep, dropped off by a generous friend. Whether or not you like this particular fruit, I am thinking about essentials for you this month. It is time to clear away any excess and make room for things that bring you joy. Enjoy the timeliness of the season. What do you truly value? Are you living according to your personal desires? Stop letting other people’s messes clutter your mind and body. Find a good, ripe peach!
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – September 22
Virgo, there has been a country-wide shortage of puzzles. Yep, during such strange days and while we are spending more time inside, we’ve spent some of that time piecing things together. I wonder, Virgo if you’ve finally found the piece you’ve been looking for. I see that you’ve taken some time for yourself, time to learn and grow and you’ve been trying to get to the overall picture. You’ve painstakingly laid each piece down and can finally see the whole. I see you as a sum of all these essential and beautiful parts. It is a vision to behold..
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra or Libra Rising: September 23 – October 22
Libra, I know that you like to think about justice, fairness and rules. I know you spend part of your day making sure people get along. We love it when a Libra is on our side. Thank you for showing up. This month, I want to grant you a retreat. A break. I want to ask you to remember what you’ve forgotten, to look where you’ve overlooked, to consider what you’ve long ago dismissed. I would like to whisper these words into your dreamtime from writer Ellen Meloy: “How can we rage and quarrel when there are summer storms that bring sky-borne balls of ice and two-hundred-foot waterfalls to the waterless desert?”
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, there is a big sea of humanity out there and you really know it. Look for opportunities this month to take part in community service both globally and locally. How would you like to nourish yourself and those around you? Do you know when you are engaged in toxic group dynamics? Are you working toward improving systems? Are you using your sharp eye to look for organizational flaws? I think of you as a ninja right now, slashing through excess, fighting for the truth, and making the world a much more livable place.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, there is a funny and wonderful Chinese idiom that I learned while living in Taiwan. Romanized it is “Ji Tong Ya Jiang” which literally translated means: “chicken talking to duck.” Further translated it hilariously elucidates the idea of miscommunication. Sag, you may find many opportunities this month for using your voice, communicating with others and telling your truth. Will it feel sometimes like you are the chicken and everyone else is the duck? Maybe. Keep going though! Your voice needs to be heard.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: December 22 - January 19
Capricorn, the sculptor Auguste Rodin applied three times to the infamous Parisian art school, Beaux Arts and was rejected all three times. He went on to be a very famous sculptor in spite of his rejection from the academy. When you put your incredible hands-on skills to work monumental things happen. As you assess your skill set this month learning opportunities may arise. Acknowledge the wealth of learning that you’ve earned by hard work and commitment. Find the areas where you would like to learn more. Stay grounded, build from your base and you may find yourself soaring to new heights.
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, have you ever watched someone blow glass? It’s an incredibly intricate process with magical results—a thing so malleable in its beginnings formed into solid vessels and shapes. I think of famous glass blower Chihuly and his iconic glass wonder-sculptures. He says that glass “transmits light in a special way”. I think this of you Aquarius. You transmit light in a special way. You are fluid when necessary but solid, even stubborn too. You know when to fly and when to stay. Give freely of this light. The world is in need.
Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces or Pisces Rising: February 19 – March 20
Pisces, I remember the first time I looked out the small window on the upstairs floor of famous Paris bookstore, Shakespeare and Company. Such a small space, full of books from top to bottom. I wanted to read them all. I also wanted to retain that moment looking at treetops—hearing the bells of Notre Dame. Memory gives us visitation rights to the past. Even if we don’t see the past clearly, we remember its feel. I feel a kind of nostalgic magic coming your way this month. I give you the gift of translation so that your tongue might be loosed. So that you can share the stories of your beautiful past with a loved one who is longing to know you more deeply and more honestly.
