Today is a wonderful day for finances, or for doing something creative with your mind. You may feel a bit misunderstood today and under some emotional stress. Any sense of melancholy will pass.
About the Number 9
General Meaning: A fisherman can cast the line, but he can only wait for the fish to bite. Your catch will come in its own time; you cannot make it hurry to you — neither by working, nor by planning, nor by wishing. You may need to provide nourishment or support for others; but only through patience can you become the bridge between the fickle fish and the eventual feast. Strength in a time of trial waits quietly, resolutely. Weakness grows agitated, and abandons the effort before the fish bites. Periods of waiting are most fruitful when used for quiet contemplation.
Proceed cautiously, but resolutely, with whatever you are doing. The time and situation are calling for consistency and patience. Waiting is an essential skill; patience is a powerful force. Good timing is an ally of those with inner strength — the kind of strength that allows you to be uncompromisingly honest with yourself, while sticking to the path you have charted. If you persevere with a positive attitude, time weakens even the hardest obstacles. To rush anything, or impatiently force results, stimulates resistance and causes setbacks. At best, you achieve surface changes — the kind that can just as quickly be reversed. Steadfast waiting — while holding to your integrity leads to slow but permanent improvements. In the end, you accomplish something great. Practice patience.

This Tarot Deck: Art Nouveau
Huge wheels and frisky steeds speed the rate at which the driver’s willpower can be realized. This kind of charge makes more of the world accessible to anyone ambitious enough to seize the Chariot’s reins. But there is danger in this feeling of freedom, because of the increased rate of change and its power to magnify mistakes in judgment. As a seasoned warrior, the Charioteer is called upon to be extra attentive to the way ahead.
You think you’re being clear about your needs today, but you still may be sending mixed messages unintentionally. On the other hand, a close friend or partner can run hot and cold, leaving you unsure about where you stand. Ultimately, the shifting energy is quite exciting if you’re able to let go of control. But trying to force your agenda on anyone else is a sure invitation to trouble. Your best strategy is to ride the shifting waves without being attached to any one outcome.
The intensity of your emotions prompts you to retreat so you can be alone today. However, if social activities require you to be around others too much, you might lose your temper and say things you quickly regret. Don’t allow yourself to use harsh words that could undermine a stable relationship. Your key word for the day is cooperation; if anyone wins, then everyone loses.
You may be feeling the incongruity between your individual needs and your social responsibilities today. Unfortunately, you might believe that you have to sacrifice one for the other, but this isn’t necessarily true. Although you’re traversing some pretty tricky relationship territory now, the key to your success is in finding balance — even if you must settle for less than you want. As always, honesty works best if you can combine telling the truth with kindness.
You have a very specific idea of how you want to appear to others today, but it may be tough to carry out your plan if your true feelings get in the way. You might think that taking a stand to establish your boundaries is important, but direct confrontation won’t bring you the happiness you seek. Instead of working with a fixed agenda now, be as flexible as possible. Allowing for the element of surprise can turn a tense situation into a real thrill ride.
You thought you knew what you were doing, but your plans may come back up for reconsideration today. You realize that your old road has ended, but the new one isn’t as easy to find as you expected. The next phase of your life could take you in an entirely new direction, but it’s harder to make big decisions now because so much is up in the air. Don’t focus on the uncertainty; take definitive action, even if you think that you might change your mind again tomorrow.
You might try to keep your feelings to yourself as the Moon returns to cool Virgo today, but you won’t likely be able to prevent an emotional eruption. You have run out of patience and may think that you have to do something immediately or you’ll lose your chance. Just remember that initiating action is easy now, but you won’t be able to just hit the undo button tomorrow.
Your diplomatic skills are being tested and you may not be as sweet and nice as others expect. The Sun is in your gracious sign, yet its opposition to shocking Uranus today and its square to dark Pluto midweek releases buried emotions as they erupt to the surface. You’re uncharacteristically willing to take a big risk now. Still, it’s a smart idea to avoid confrontation and see where the energy goes before making any drastic moves.
The practical Virgo Moon is in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes, yet you’re inadvertently flirting with emotional explosives as revolutionary Uranus urges you to throw caution to the wind. Areas of your life that once felt safe and secure are now feeling chaotic and vulnerable. Fortunately, you have an inspirational message that could have a positive effect on others. Choose your words carefully and stay strong in your convictions.
The picky Virgo Moon’s presence in your 10th House of Career may require you to work extra hard today, but shifty Uranus suggests that your day won’t turn out as you expect. A surprising event can be a powerful catalyst that initiates a chain reaction, releasing suppressed emotions. But this isn’t necessarily your battle to fight. Setting clear boundaries helps you move through this complicated time with confidence and grace.
You’re tempted to rebel at home as unruly Uranus opposes the Sun from your 4th House of Domestic Conditions. Fortunately, the earthy Virgo Moon helps you to suppress some of the craziness and encourages you to maintain the status quo. However, a simple twist of fate can suddenly lead you in an entirely new direction and have you singing a whole new song.
The willful Sun illuminates your key planet Uranus today, demonstrating how comfortable you are with radical change. Still, you don’t need to let every single person know how you feel. Nevertheless, don’t wait for external encouragement before sharing your ideas with someone you trust. Being extra perceptive enables you to manage this rather chaotic day with a healthy perspective and a good sense of humor.
Someone may push you too far today, but you could be the one who ends up in trouble if you respond with equal intensity. Although you might think that you can take on anyone now, especially if you’re feeling self-righteous, caution is advised. Unfortunately, you can have the best of intentions while still overstepping boundaries. Respect other people’s limits or you’ll just waste a lot of time and energy pleading your case in vain.
Mercury in Libra
Sunday, September 25, 2:09 pm PDT, 5:09 pm EDT 12, 2:27 am PDT, 5:27 am EDT
Bright-eyed Mercury sees both sides of any question in this fair-minded sign. Thinking benefits from refined clarity and communication skills, inviting new connections. Discussions can diverge, darken or break down as the messenger planet follows the courses of Venus and the Sun. The trickster planet encounters lightning bolts of brilliance and impatience with Uranus on the 26th and descends to dark waters of insight and suspicion with Pluto on the 28th. New rules of engagement could be signed with Mercury’s conjunction to serious Saturn on October 6.
