Horoscope for 23 September, 2016

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be frantically busy at times and never boring, though you’ll find time to spend extravagantly since you’ll have an eye for irresistible treats. You’ll be pushing hard at tome to establish old relationships on a new footing and will at times ruffle a few feathers by insisting on having more freedom to suit yourself. You may feel that certain people aren’t paying enough attention to your views, so keep repeating yourself.

ARIES: There is nothing light hearted about your romantic life at the moment. Because Venus in sitting in the hidden area of your chart you want more drama than usual – a grand passion – or paradoxically you could be shutting off your emotional needs altogether. Maybe you are wary that if you open up to what you really want it could bring uncomfortable feelings to the surface. Maybe you’ll be looking too much on the dark side now seeing only problems and losing your normal optimism.

TAURUS: Your heart is definitely in the right place, so you will be ironing out difficulties, soothing ruffled feathers and generally putting your best diplomatic foot forward. If you are trying to sell or recommend anything at the moment charm will be your greatest asset. At one point today, you’ll be talking about everything intensely. You’ll be digging below the surface into the depths so you’ll have a penetrating quality about you. Others may be rather unsettled because of the direct and searching way in which you ask questions.
GEMINI: Maybe you are being just a touch too analytical about your feelings, standing back to dissect them rather than plunging into emotional situations around you. If you can let go, you would find deeper connections and more fulfilling relationships.rnThe main thing to remember is that Pluto around now changes life a bit. It tries to get rid of things that are no longer any use to you, so it may be that old and outworn beliefs are being shifted out of your life.
CANCER: Your ability to sparkle in the spotlight is certainly attracting a stream of compliments, if not new admirers. You will be flirting, having fun, and trying to duck out of boring chores as much as possible. It’ll be important not to get too dogmatic or self-righteous or get yourself too wound up now. Sometimes you’ll speak in a way that others find slightly difficult to take. They’ll feel that you’re push-push-pushing and may not take very kindly to it, so you need to aim for a lighter approach.
LEO: Adding elegant touches to your intimate surroundings is a top priority. Having beauty around will make you feel happier. Get out the colour charts, buy a few more pot plants and see what you can do. You may get so wrapped up in one tiny obsessive detail that you won’t see the wood for the trees. What’ll be said today by yourself or others will be important, but everyone will seem a little bit gridlocked. No one will want to compromise.
VIRGO: Thoughtful gestures from everyday companions are making you feel admired and appreciated. You are beginning to discover you do not have to move far from your normal routines to find affection. It may not be grand passion but it is rather pleasant. Stay witty, flexible and tolerant and you’ll be highly persuasive. If on the other hand you become too obsessed with what’s going on, you won’t see the wood for the trees. Stand back and remember there’s an upside as well as a downside.
LIBRA: You have a taste what is fine and elegant at the moment. If your extravagance looks like outrunning your budget, turn your creative skills to earning more money. All it takes is imagination and effort then you can afford more treats. You’ll be utterly determined to get to the bottom of one emotional problem which has been niggling at you. You’ll be pushing hard to persuade others round to whatever it is that you want them to think. Try not to be too rigid.
SCORPIO: You will be wearing your heart on your sleeve, expressing your feelings of affection rather directly, and generally getting what you want. Today you’ll be able to solve difficult puzzles in your emotional life and elsewhere now, but don’t go so far down into the depths you end up only looking on the bleak side. Try to stay with one foot on the surface and one foot deep down. That way you’ll be able to ask the searching questions you want and you’ll get answers.
SAGITTARIUS: Love may not come as easily in coming days, partly because you are holding back, maybe over sensitive to rejection. You feel you would rather shut yourself away than let your feelings be seen. Maybe you do need a quiet time, just don’t let opportunities for romance slide by because you cannot force yourself to speak out about what you need or who you fancy. At points today you may get too forceful about trying to bring everyone round to your viewpoint. Try to be more detached.
CAPRICORN: This is an emotionally light hearted patch when you will want to have a gang of buddies around. You will be spreading your social favours in all directions, not tying yourself down at any point. Safety in numbers will be your motto. Though what you are learning today you are learning at a much deeper level than usual. You’ll not be superficial, or interested in anything that is too frivolous. Watch that you’re not forcing your viewpoint on others or becoming too compulsive.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: If you have creative talents you should make the effort to get them out on display to best advantage. You can turn your dreams into reality, but will have to discipline yourself. Venus will only be around for a few weeks so don’t linger. You’ll have a great love of mystery, wanting to find out what’s going on in the deep, dark and secret corners, so you’ll be drawn to hidden places. It’s important that you sort out your own secrets before probing into anyone else’s.
PISCES: Socially charming and more light hearted than of late, you want to mix with a wider range of people and perhaps explore new leisure activities. You want to be out of your normal rut to find stimulation with companions who will stretch your mind as well as keep you entertained. Sometimes you will get frustrated because you’ll feel you’re not getting your own way. You’ll then get a little manipulative which can backfire. Watch that you’re not trying to twist loved ones or mates around too much.
