Written exclusively for Community ConneXion by Carol Roland, MA

For all signs:

The intensity of summer will begin to subside as we move into a more analytical mode for the fall. The new life situations and insights about yourself will require time for digestion. Know that we have moved into a new cycle which will be breaking some of the rules of the past. You will find yourself reinventing yourself and your life into a new and greater vision then could be previously imagined.

For individual signs: (See birth date period in parenthesis)

^ Aries (March 21 - April 20) You will need to focus during this period on rethinking your philosophies about life and how you communicate them. Your relationships, including coworkers, have valid insights of their own. Mutual respect is the key.

_ Taurus (April 21 - May 20) Your finances and values may require review. What do you really need or desire? The answer to that question may fluctuate during September. October will allow you to find the cooperation needed to make changes.

` Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Your relationships are undergoing healing transformations. This may feel challenging, but some unconscious attitudes are starting to be more apparent. You can use this time to review old family patterns and visualize new solutions.

a Cancer (June 22 - July 22) Use the more comfortable energy of September to pay attention to your health and self image. October will require a good foundation to help you deal with the increased stress and activity.

b Leo (July 23 - August 22) You are being challenged to look beyond your own abilities and to look within, to others, or to a spiritual force for solutions. You are being shown your ability to co-create, but credit must be given to the true source.

c Virgo (August 23 - September 22) Life for Virgo is a process of sorting through all information and becoming consciously aware of what holds true value for you. To be forced to follow another path affects your physical and emotional health. Be true to yourself, discover what works for you, and allow others the same privilege without judgment.

d Libra (September 23 - October 23) Until your birthday you may feel challenged to find enough time for work, family, and yourself. Check carefully for any self sabotage patterns you can change.

e Scorpio (October 24 - November 22) The new cycles beginning in May will create energy and situations to elevate Scorpio to its higher symbol of the Eagle. Young eagles however, have to learn not to try to take on more thn their current strength can handle. Become aware of your strengths and limitations during this time. Best to hold any new long term ventures until after your birthday.

f Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21) Relationships continue to be an outward focus. You are transforming, so what you wanted before May will change as you reinvent yourself. Finances will have opportunity to improve, if you have taken responsibility and changed old extravagant patterns.

g Capricorn (December 22 - January 20) This is a time period of inner change by looking at the world and yourself through the eyes of others. Friends will provide needed examples for the insights and ability to love that you strive to achieve.

h Aquarius (January 21 - February 18) The abundance or lack of nurturing in your life at this time is a test of your ability to accept. The Universe is offering, but have you been able receive a new level of joy in your life. Time to reawaken your faith and belief in the Divine order that seeks to help you to heal through remembering that you are a soul in a physical body.

i Pisces (February 19 - March 20) You continue to be pulled by the energy of others to ground your dreams into reality. Allow your imagination to be inspired to create solutions rather than retreating from conflict.
