Early Rosh Hashanah Moon
This new moon in Virgo coincides with that of the earliest Rosh Hashanah holiday, which has occurred since 1899. The Jewish New Year celebrates the creation of mankind and supports efforts of improvement in the year ahead. The Virgo new moon focuses energy in the realm of health, nutrition and fitness. Fortune favors your new plan.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your sign mate Thomas Jefferson had it absolutely right when he said, “In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will return to the role of student with a long list of fresh questions. The more you learn the more you appreciate the endless loop that is the learning process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For you, the glory has never been in riding on your high horse; rather, it’s in getting back on the horse after you’ve been knocked off. Today you’re something of a comeback kid.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will politely listen to the advice and philosophy of admired teachers, even though you may not be able to relate to it as of yet. The ideas will apply when you find evidence of their truth in your own life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sleep is an important part of any mammal’s life. Don’t lie awake worrying about tomorrow when you should be asleep. Instead, outline the plan that will assuage your worries.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your request for excellence will only be understood and acted upon if you also put it in writing. There’s something about ink and paper that makes it so.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll give a gift. The presentation will be crucial to its reception. Some items are so perfect, they shouldn’t be packaged with other items that might dilute the value.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You appreciate your family, but that doesn’t mean you need every member around you at all times. You’ll call on your kin as needed. Set boundaries to instate the policy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Submitting to the judgment of others is a kind of agreement you don’t want to get into. When your friends get “judgy,” it’s time to pull back and assert your independence.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You understand what you’re dealing with much better than anyone else does. What can you do to shed light on the matter so the others can see it, too?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your instructions will be helpful in solving a mystery. You won’t spell out the answer, but you’ll tell people where they should look for the clues.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s exciting when a natural phenomenon unfolds before you. You’ll enjoy watching one of life’s stranger processes in detail. Paying attention is its own reward.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 5). You won’t be so easily pleased, and because of this an inner fire ignites. Ordinary marks of progress won’t satisfy you. You won’t stop until you’ve achieved what no one else has. Love in abundance will support you. Your professional status rises in November. There’s a financial reward in October and January. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 24, 11, 7 and 14.
TODAY’S NUMEROLOGY: Today’s numerology can be found by adding up each number in today’s date: 0+9+0+5+2+0+1+3 = 20. Then add the 2+0 for a final outcome of 2.
“Two” days are for exploring what appeals to our human animal. The senses open to sources of pleasure and comfort. Discovering the tastes, sounds, feelings, scents and visuals that most please us is a priority of the day. On “two” days, it feels as though the purpose of life is simply to enjoy living.
To make the most of a “two” day, increase your attention to the information streaming through your five senses. It’s easy to take daily life for granted, but “stop to smell the roses” is more than a cliched metaphor on a “two” day. Those who actually stop and sniff will connect on an atomic level with all of nature and creation in the universe.
If you were born on a “two” day, you are a sensual being, eager to take in all that is good and beautiful about life. The specificity of your appetites goes beyond what is common or popular. You know what you like and what you don’t, and your strong opinions on the matter lead you to develop a style of living that is all your own.
