– B.K.S Iyengar
Have you ever experienced the feeling of wanting to quit? Have you ever made it to a point where you said to yourself, "I am done. I can no longer continue." Perhaps you have felt this way regarding your career, a relationship, the way you feel about yourself, or possibly about life in general. The good new is that when you get to this point, you are usually at a crossroads where you must change your situation. You either have to leave a situation that you are in or you have to start a new approach to the situation in order to make it through.
This September, as we start on a new month and the last quarter of 2011, examine what in your life needs to be cured, perhaps through elimination or change, and what needs to be endured.
Aries: This is a great time to think about your health and examine how your routine has been encouraging or discouraging wellness. What are your health goals? Do you want more flexibility? More energy? Better sleep? This is a great time to initiate the changes in your routine to support your health.
Taurus: This month starts with the Sun in your 5th house, the house of romance, play and creativity. Allow yourself some free time. You have been working hard this past month, so take some time to relax, take a mini vacation and prioritize fun.
Gemini: You may feel somewhat of a homebody this weekend. You may be wanting to spend more time at home or with your family. Use this month to recharge and to spend time with the people who will support and encourage you.
Cancer: Use this month to learn. This month you will have the energy and ability to both teach and learn. As you teach, you learn, and as you learn, you teach. Remember the two of these are reciprocal and are not isolated.
Leo: It is time to examine the relationship that you have with yourself and your self worth. What are you insecure about and why? This is a good time to look at the things and surroundings that bring out your insecurities and stop avoiding them, but begin to learn from them.
Virgo: Dear Virgo, you have the Sun in your 1st house this month. This your shining birth anniversary time. Use the energy from the Sun to initiate new beginnings. Where in life do you want a fresh start? This month, you can start anew in any area that you want! Just do it!
Libra: What have you been hiding from yourself? In what way have you been keeping yourself a prisoner? Free yourself this month. This is a liberating month for you if you want it to be. You have the power to set yourself free?
Scorpio: Your social circles are on your mind. Perhaps you are feeling a bit flirty and social. Use your natural ability to create deep relationships with all that you encounter this month. Look at everyone as a friend, and see how this changes the various situations you encounter.
Sagittarius: What do you need to change in your life in order to dive deeper into your dreams? A sacrifice is not a loss, it is a gain in disguise. What are you willing to sacrifice for your dreams?
Capricorn: Do you feel a bit deeper than usual? Indeed there may be a lot of big questions that you are pondering. You are not alone. Share your ideas. If you have been thinking of going back to school, take class that allows you to dive deeper into philosophy.
Aquarius: What have you been keeping private? This month may be the month that a secret is revealed. Free yourself by bringing this secret into the light. There is nothing to hide.
Pisces: It is time to either move on from a relationship or commit to being in it. Accept your present and all that it brings to you. Leave behind the feelings of non-fulfillment from another person, fulfill yourself!
