Your Monthly Horoscope for September 2021
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, there are a set of six famous tapestries entitled (collectively) The Lady and the Unicorn. Five of these tapestries depict taste, hearing, sight, smell and touch. George Sand brought these to the attention of the public in her novel, Jeanne. Aries, you sit at crossroads this month between industry and storytelling. You’ll have opportunities to weave taste, color and thread through the contours of your work. In this way, as images appear, you will recognize yourself in the warp and weft of your dynamic creativity.
Taurus Astrological Symbol
Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20
Taurus, Elizabeth Gilbert wrote a book called Big Magic in which she talks about creativity and its processes. She holds to the idea that we don’t have to martyr ourselves on the block of creativity to prove our genius. She states boldly that “it’s better to be a trickster than a martyr. The trickster sees through our delusions of seriousness and exposes the play underneath all our drama.” Seems this month Taurus, you might benefit from playing a little less martyr and spinning your new creations like any good trickster would.
Gemini Astrological Sy
Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21
Gemini, have you ever made jam? Tis the season as fruit delightfully ripens in orchards and backyards, the sun playing its juicy role. I asked my 13-year-old nephew recently which flavor of jam he preferred, and he said, “grandma’s raspberry.” This month you’ll have small, domestic opportunities to lose yourself in home keeping. Take a day or two to notice the small moments that make up the fabric of your home. Taking a day to make preserves like a beloved grandma, might just prove to be what the doctor ordered.
Cancer Astrological Symbol
Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22
Cancer, remember The Story of Ferdinand by Munroe Leaf? The bull that couldn’t muster much anger despite the urgings of all around him. He just wanted to enjoy a nap under a tree, maybe smell the flowers? There are messages in the stories you grew up with. I grew up reading about Ferdinand. Rummage through the stories of your youth this month and ask yourself why one particular story made such an impression? Analyze it, find its message. This childlike venture might help you communicate better and direct your energy in surprising ways. Let laughter be a boon.
Leo Astrological Sign
Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22
Leo, in the late Ursula Le Guin’s novel, The Left Hand of Darkness she says, “To learn which questions are unanswerable, and not to answer them: this skill is most needful in times of stress and darkness.” Questions might roll in this month in much greater supply than answers. You will be tempted to prematurely make sense of the uneasiness around you. It has always been easy for you Leo, to shine brightly with all the fabulous answers. It is time to listen to those around you for clues in the chaos. Humility lies at the heart of this month’s unfolding’s.
Virgo Astrological Symbol
Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – September 22
Virgo, your month is perfectly enshrined in this Zen Koan, “Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” We know that for our industrious Virgo’s the badge of success comes from the thousand hours they’ve spent at a task. It is in the doing that life is revealed. The journey always come down to the repeating of work and the accruing of knowledge as you find yourself doing a thing over and over again. Please give yourself a hefty pat on the back for all you’ve learned!
libra Astrological Symbol
Libra or Libra Rising: September 23 – October 22
Libra, are you ruled or unruled when it comes to journals or notebooks? Do you prefer the precision of the line/graph or the unadulterated freedom of a perfectly blank piece of paper? Do you write down your thoughts linearly or peppered with images and poetry? Do you write down your thoughts at all? How do you make sense of your inner dialogue? These questions might arise as you hunt for the perfect notebook to collect the mystical, magical, even extraordinary musings you’ve had and will be having this month. Pay special attention to your dreams.
Scorpio Astrological Sign
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, it will be important this month to pay attention to words and their meanings. Quoting from wise-wizard, Aldous Dumbledore in J.K. Rowling’s, Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows he says: “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it.” Words will matter within your personal sphere but also within your community. Give yourself time to share and communicate with precision and compassion. Learn how to empathize. Learn how to listen. Make magic with your sentences.
Sagittarius Astrological Sign
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, I am often struck by the praise novelists have for their editors. For the writer, a good editor is essential in turning a written piece from good to great. I think about what special set of tools an editor needs to do their job, things that include attention to detail, precision, thorough knowledge of the rules of writing, and the ability to advocate for their client. Sag, you may be asked to take something from good to great this month. Think about how to empower those who you work with rather than burdening them with empty critiques. If there is anything so solely in your wheelhouse it is your ability to inspire others toward the horizon of greatness.
Capricorn Astrological Symbol
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: December 22 - January 19
Capricorn, if you were a character in a fairytale, I think I’d peg you as Jack in Jack and Beanstalk. True, you traded a cow for magical beans, which, had you climbing a sky-high beanstalk looking for a giant, but ultimately, the whole venture paid off. You came out with more resources than you started with. This is true of you in general, with your ingenuity and persistence, you tend to make mountains out of molehills. Keep up the good work. Share the wealth. Look out for magic beans!
Aquarius Astrological Symbol
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, generally you like the breezy feel of independence what with your penchant for raw individualism. Thing is, this month you will be asked to collaborate on a project that feels exciting and inspiring. Let go of doing it all alone, for the prospect of making a friend or working alongside a comrade. Ask the right questions and listen well. The creativity you’ll feel at the side of another truly creative being will feel wonderful. Brush up on your communication skills. Clear your mind of tired tropes. Forge real friendships.
Pisces Astrological Symbol
Pisces or Pisces Rising: February 19 – March 20
Pisces, can we overanalyze our relationships? How much time do we spend wondering why our partner or lover said what they said? Why don’t we just ask them? Why don’t we bring more communication to the table rather than less? What would it take to ask a lover about something that feels vulnerable? When is it time to deepen our bonds through real dialogue and healthy listening? These are the questions you’ll be asking this month Pisces. You have a real opportunity to deepen your intimacy with another by simply understanding the power of conversation.
