Weekly Horoscopes September 15th through 21st

Weekly Horoscope

All Signs

Mercury gets all the attention when it goes retrograde three times a year. But how does Mercury affect us on an everyday basis when it’s not retrograde? Mercury rules how we think and communicate. When it changes signs, it shifts our focus. It changes the kinds of communications we have with others, and it’s a strong indicator about travel. Right now Mercury is in Libra until Oct. 2. This increases our focus on legal matters, clever debates, beautiful things and fun socializing. Expect to buy attractive wardrobe goodies because Libra rules haute couture. Oh yeah! “Get out of those wet clothes and into a dry martini!”

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next two weeks, Mercury will be opposite your sign, which will help you clarify and explain things to someone. (A close friend, partner or spouse.) This is also an excellent time to consult an expert of any kind. In fact, working with others will benefit you. It’s a particularly good time to discuss difficulties that come up in your intimate relationships. Naturally, you will seek out mental stimulation and fascinating conversations with everyone you talk to because you want to enjoy an intellectual banter with others. “Hey! Don’t we both sound smart?”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the next two weeks, you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and tackle your job in a hands-on way. Nevertheless, this is also an excellent time for all kinds of mental work because you will be more attentive to detail than usual. You might also want to hone and perfect a particular technique that you need for your work. You will enjoy doing any kind of planning because it will give you a sense of purpose, especially regarding practical work that needs to be done. Refrain from criticizing others, which will be tempting. Many of you might think about health concerns more than usual and want to improve your diet.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Lucky you! Mercury will travel through the most fun part of your chart in the next few weeks giving you lots of chances to express your creative ideas to others. You want to make it clear to others where you stand on certain matters. You will also want to use your mind for mental games and amusing diversions in addition to reading, writing and anything that requires mental agility. You will love to play jokes and pranks on friends for the next few weeks. (Mercury is the trickster!) Ironically, even though Mercury is your ruler, because of its fun, playful placement in the next few weeks, you might find that you are a poor listener to others. (“Who cares? I’m having fun.”)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next few weeks, you will examine your domestic life more than usual, especially your relationships with family members and the people you live with. You will reflect more upon your past, including childhood memories. It might occur to you now how past events affect your present and how much your subconscious mind draws your attention to moments from your past. In addition, many of you will tackle repairs on the home front because you want to roll up your sleeves and fix something you’ve been avoiding. A conversation with a parent or an older family member will be significant. This two-week “window” will be a time of reflection. No pane, no gain.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The placement of Mercury in your chart right now indicates that the pace of your days will accelerate in the next few weeks. Group discussions, conversations with others plus chances to meet new people and see new places as well as travel (especially short trips) will keep you hopping! In addition to this, you will be involved in intellectual activities, which means you might read, write and study more than usual. This is definitely not the time for you to settle down and relax. Au contraire! Prepare for this increased tempo of events and stay flexible so that you can go with the flow. (There’s no time like the pleasant!)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Like Gemini, Mercury is your ruler. However for the next few weeks, it will be travelling through one of your Money Houses, which means you will give much more thought to what it is that you value in life. Is it something that’s intellectual, material, or spiritual? Something will prompt you to define your sense of values to someone else. Naturally, you will be thinking more of business and commercial affairs, cash flow, earnings and shopping. You might also dream up some excellent moneymaking ideas? This could turn into a practical advantage for you by October, which means you’ll find yourself cooking on all six burners! “Friendship is the bread of life but money is the honey!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Mercury will be in your sign until Oct. 2, which will give you a strong urge to express your point of view to others. You will find that you are able to put a great deal of yourself into whatever it is you say, which makes you persuasive and convincing! Very likely, your mind will jump from issue to issue very rapidly. Nevertheless, you will also have the capacity to examine yourself with greater objectivity. (Like Andy Warhol, am I deeply shallow?) Very likely, you will have a strong urge to get out and travel but not for long distances. Quick trips will be your preference. You will be skilled in negotiations and discussing contracts because your mind will be clear. Charles Schultz was right, “Life is like a 10-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are the most private sign in the zodiac – we both know that. Ironically, in the next two weeks, you’re going to be even more private! You will choose to keep your opinions to yourself and not communicate them to others, even if you should. On the upside, you will be more in touch with hidden sides of your personality and your unconscious drives and compulsions. This is because Mercury is travelling through a “hidden” part of your chart. It will make you want to go off by yourself to think or study and contemplate your navel. It promotes your ability to do research by yourself and work alone. You will welcome moments of peace and quiet so that you can contemplate profundity. Cogito ergo porc pan. “I think, therefore these are pork buns.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Quite likely, you will be more involved with younger people and perhaps creative artistic types as well in the next few weeks. If so, they will give you a new, informed point of view about yourself and life in general. You might also have reason to examine your ideals, especially how they relate to group ideals. You might find that you will scrutinize your attitude toward groups or a club? (Are these really my people?) You will think more about your goals and what you want to achieve and whether these goals are appropriate for you. It will definitely be a time of increased communication with others and much to-ing and fro-ing. “Hail fellow, well met!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s interesting to note that Mercury will be travelling across the top of your chart in the next few weeks. This will provoke you to make plans concerning your professional life or anything regarding your career or your public reputation. It’s definitely a good time to undertake new studies that would boost your career and your reputation among your peers. Because of this high placement, it’s an excellent time for you to talk to bosses, VIPs, employers and even the police. You might want to make a pitch for a promotion? (You can’t win if you don’t buy a ticket.) Communications on your job will assume a greater importance and you might find yourself in touch with the outside world more than usual. “The Eagle has landed.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The next few weeks are the perfect time for any kind of study or getting further education because you will be intellectually eager to broaden your horizons and learn more. You will be interested in world news and anything that attracts your attention. In particular, you will be intrigued by foreign places, the law, philosophy and higher knowledge. You will definitely want to get out and travel because your curiosity will make travelling a fascinating exercise. You might find yourself contemplating different lifestyles, especially if you are attracted to how someone else is living. “Loin cloths? Think of the savings in dry-cleaning!” It’s an exciting two weeks ahead!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Mercury will be travelling through one of your Money Houses in the next two weeks, specifically the one that deals with the wealth and resources of others. This is why you will give more thought to inheritances, mortgages, banks, loans, money back from the government and also how you might benefit from the wealth of someone close to you. However, you will also have many occasions to look inward and reflect upon deep, psychological truths about yourself. Intellectual encounters with others might be profound as well. You might even discover that you have a mind meld with a friend or amazing synchronicity in your shared thinking. (We don’t see things as they are – we see things as we are.)

15th September Birthday Horoscope

September 15 Zodiac Sign Is Virgo

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On September 15

SEPTEMBER 15 birthday horoscope predicts that you are an honest, imaginative, and humble person. You are likely to drift off into a world of your own though, Virgo. It’s okay because it doesn’t affect your view of reality but rather lets you escape momentarily. This is one Virgo who is different from the rest. You live life on your terms.

This September 15 birthday personality is bubbling with enthusiasm, but it’s hidden underneath a shy but observant front. The reputation of this Virgo is usually a foundation for a spokesperson for a particular cause.

For this reason, you have to stay on top of your game. It is not hard for you to do, as you can think on your feet as an intelligent Virgo. What excites this Virgo birthday person is learning. Someone born on this day will take the ball by the hand and run with it. You can be aggressive, straightforward and blunt. You are turned off by inactivity or repetition.

 

Additionally, the September 15th astrology predicts that you are incredibly talented and artistic. You are without a doubt, down-to-earth but every once in a while you re-imagine yourself.

If today is your birthday, you are attractive people. You may have some trouble meeting people or making friends. However, people are mysteriously drawn to you. It could be because of your spiritual awareness that people like. Normally, you are the first one that your friends come to for advice and even comforting. Your style of romance comes effortlessly as you gain knowledge through your intuition.

As a friend, the Virgo can be a source of inspiration as you have a way with people. When you make a friend, you usually are friends for a long time. Likely, your friends will feel better as a result of having talked to you.

Although a good friend, you don’t like to get too close to people. On the other hand, the September 15 birthday meanings show that you love being around funny and cheerful people. Some say that this could be a way of covering up the fact that you are self-conscious but you are capable of achieving great things.

Let’s talk about your love life. The September 15 birthday love compatibility analysis shows that you are not romantic like other Virgo zodiac sign born individuals. You will go all the way if you find someone worthy of your love and understanding or loyalty. You are likely to take your time to get to know someone.

The September 15 horoscope predicts that the health of a Virgo born on this day could be excellent, but you tend to look at food and gain weight. You love good food and have a hearty appetite. It’s hard for you to get going on a health care plan to be fit for life. But, you do need to take care of yourself.

As an adult, you understand that after sex, there needs to be more to the relationship. Unpretentious is the Virgin who will put their feelings on display. A dedicated and genuine partner will certainly soothe the virgin’s soul. The perfect mate for a person born today would be someone who shares the same views. This usually makes for a wonderful and healthy relationship.

The September 15 birthday personality are virgins who have artistic ability. Not that you want to be in the spotlight, but you are creative, talented and spiritual. Loyal, you can get along with almost anyone but don’t make friends easily.

You may start, but you hardly finish what you start in the first place. Other times, it may be hard for you to sit still, so you may want to work off some excess energy if that’s possible. Well, enjoy your work out. There are many opportunities for you. Commit to a personal trainer or coach, and you should be successful.

Along with your ability to be a good teacher, you are someone who can do things on your own with the exception of staying on your diet. It is so easy for you to gain weight, it would be beneficial to have an expert by your side.

September 14th Birthday Horoscope

August 13 Zodiac Sign Is Leo

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On August 13

AUGUST 13 birthday horoscope predicts that you probably are a Leo who is materialistic, but your approach to friendship is of integrity and passion. If you are born today, you dynamically live life. This can encompass showering your lovers with lavish gifts. You are full of life and love sharing your positive energy.

However, as a leader, you remain humble and poised. This August 13 birthday personality is truly likable. Being kind to others, and entrusting them to be responsible, the lion has a particular sense of fairness and generosity.

In general, as a boss, you have an open door, willing to discuss anything with your employees. The August 13 zodiac astrology predicts that you are passionate and idealistic Lions ready to deal with most challenges.

Perhaps, you had to make a compromise or two to get the job done as you are determined to get the job done. If you are working with a cause, you typically are at your feistiest.

The August 13 Leo birthday person is usually the calm one in a crisis. You stand firm in your decisions and don‘t like to take other people‘s advice but are always telling others how to live. At the same time, a person born on this day will take friends and family out to celebrate a raise in pay or news of a new addition to the family.

As a negative birthday characteristic, those born today can be self-centered or “stuck” on themselves. You are good, Leo, but money nor fame determines the nature of man.

The August 13th horoscope warns that you should not be so proud that you look down on your fellow men because of social status. Moreover, stop bragging, your friends are tired of this although they may not tell you.

Friends and family of a Leo born on August 13th birthday, find themselves in the shadows, as you want all the attention and spotlight. You are likely fond of being in charge.

Heads should turn when you enter a room or so you think. You also think that people should be at your disposal. When are you going to accept responsibility for yourself, Leo?

The August 13 birthday meanings show that those born on this have excellent work ethics. Usually deep in your work, you do not relax until the project is closed. To close a file, all the details and fine print have to be considered and dealt with.

It is not likely to find this Lion relaxing in the sun. You like to be active and productive. “Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream,” is your motto. You will share your workload to provide someone with the same stimulation. Socially, you are amongst the popular choice of invites.

If today is your birthday, you may have an artistic trait. This creative streak is not limited to just going to the theater but performing. You are typically graceful individuals who are perhaps very proud.

History of Friday the 13th

Long considered a harbinger of bad luck, Friday the 13th has inspired a late 19th-century secret society, an early 20th-century novel, a horror film franchise and not one but two unwieldy terms—paraskavedekatriaphobia and friggatriskaidekaphobia—that describe fear of this supposedly unlucky day.

The Fear of 13

Just like walking under a ladder, crossing paths with a black cat or breaking a mirror, many people hold fast to the belief that Friday the 13th brings bad luck. Though it’s uncertain exactly when this particular tradition began, negative superstitions have swirled around the number 13 for centuries.

While Western cultures have historically associated the number 12 with completeness (there are 12 days of Christmas, 12 months and zodiac signs, 12 labors of Hercules, 12 gods of Olympus and 12 tribes of Israel, just to name a few examples), its successor 13 has a long history as a sign of bad luck.

The ancient Code of Hammurabi, for example, reportedly omitted a 13th law from its list of legal rules. Though this was probably a clerical error, superstitious people sometimes point to this as proof of 13’s longstanding negative associations.

Fear of the number 13 has even earned a psychological term: triskaidekaphobia.

Why is Friday the 13th Unlucky?

According to biblical tradition, 13 guests attended the Last Supper, held on Maundy Thursday, including Jesus and his 12 apostles (one of whom, Judas, betrayed him). The next day, of course, was Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.

The seating arrangement at the Last Supper is believed to have given rise to a longstanding Christian superstition that having 13 guests at a table was a bad omen—specifically, that it was courting death.

Though Friday’s negative associations are weaker, some have suggested they also have roots in Christian tradition: Just as Jesus was crucified on a Friday, Friday was also said to be the day Eve gave Adam the fateful apple from the Tree of Knowledge, as well as the day Cain killed his brother, Abel.

The Thirteen Club

In the late-19th century, a New Yorker named Captain William Fowler (1827-1897) sought to remove the enduring stigma surrounding the number 13—and particularly the unwritten rule about not having 13 guests at a dinner table—by founding an exclusive society called the Thirteen Club.

The group dined regularly on the 13th day of the month in room 13 of the Knickerbocker Cottage, a popular watering hole Fowler owned from 1863 to 1883. Before sitting down for a 13-course dinner, members would pass beneath a ladder and a banner reading “Morituri te Salutamus,” Latin for “Those of us who are about to die salute you.”

Four former U.S. presidents (Chester A. ArthurGrover ClevelandBenjamin Harrison and Theodore Roosevelt) would join the Thirteen Club’s ranks at one time or another.

Friday the 13th in Pop Culture

An important milestone in the history of the Friday the 13th legend in particular (not just the number 13) occurred in 1907, with the publication of the novel Friday, the Thirteenth written by Thomas William Lawson.

The book told the story of a New York City stockbroker who plays on superstitions about the date to create chaos on Wall Street, and make a killing on the market.

The horror movie Friday the 13th, released in 1980, introduced the world to a hockey mask-wearing killer named Jason, and is perhaps the best-known example of the famous superstition in pop culture history. The movie spawned multiple sequels, as well as comic books, novellas, video games, related merchandise and countless terrifying Halloween costumes.

What bad things happened on Friday 13th?

On Friday, October 13, 1307, officers of King Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of the Knights Templar, a powerful religious and military order formed in the 12th century for the defense of the Holy Land.

Imprisoned on charges of various illegal behaviors (but really because the king wanted access to their financial resources), many Templars were later executed. Some cite the link with the Templars as the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition, but like many legends involving the Templars and their history, the truth remains murky.

In more recent times, a number of traumatic events have occurred on Friday the 13th, including the German bombing of Buckingham Palace(September 1940); the murder of Kitty Genovese in Queens, New York (March 1964); a cyclone that killed more than 300,000 people in Bangladesh (November 1970); the disappearance of a Chilean Air Force plane in the Andes (October 1972); the death of rapper Tupac Shakur (September 1996) and the crash of the Costa Concordia cruise ship off the coast of Italy, which killed 30 people (January 2012).

There’s a Full Moon Due on Friday the 13th for Most of the U.S. The Next One Isn’t for Another 30 Years

Time Magazine September 12, 2019

BY GINA MARTINEZ

The next full moon is set to make an appearance on the most ominous date on the calendar this month.

A September full moon, also known as a “Harvest Moon,” will be visible to many Americans this Friday the 13th.

According to NASA, the moon will be full early Saturday morning, Sept. 14, at 12:33 a.m. EST, but for those who live in the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones, the full moon will be visible shortly before midnight on Friday the 13th.

NASA says that the moon will appear full for about three days centered around this time — from Thursday night through Sunday morning.

September 13th N. H. Current Moon Phase and Planetary Positions

Current Moon Phase

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2019

Today the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.
