Origin Horoscopes
Kim Thomas
Aries: The month starts with work and health as a priority, communication hold ups lead to some
fretting but energy moves by the 12th.  The mood turns to partnerships, with Mars and Venus in your
relationship sector, there is a romantic quality, notions of service and love. With Saturn’s presence, you
are unlikely to get carried away but learn a lesson in fair and balanced loving. The planets support you
in working with others and moving beyond the superficial mid month.  Choose to channel your
energy wisely on the 23rd as the moon is full in Aries, intensifying career and relationship needs.

Taurus: Expressing your creative side this month brings rewards at home and with your sense
of self-worth while your ability to work alongside others in the spirit of cooperation is
strengthened.  This bodes well for romance and from the 14th you are able to balance your needs
with those of the people you love.  You may experience profound longings and be quite verbal
about your need for relationship or perhaps you will be the object of someone else's passion.  Your
personal power days on the 27th and 28th bring energy into your working day while challenging the
structures of your daily life.  

Gemini: September begins with the Moon in your sign, invoking a heightened sense of personal
power, great for planning and preparing.  Matters at home or in your past may lead to frustration,
think creatively towards resolution this is a great month for change and your future security benefits
from it.  Harvest comes after the 12th with positive planetary connections encouraging deep,
psychological thinking, resulting in ideas to improve your daily life or work situation.   Keep things in
perspective though from the 29th as your mind is working overtime, dealings with others require
some sensitivity and understanding for a more harmonious home-life.

Cancer: Much of the incredible intensity you have been feeling at home in particular, eases early
month, although relationships and your understanding of them still leave you with much
consternation.  Don’t cry, as the planets of Love and Sex move together in your fun zone from the
14th, life will lighten up, bringing with it creativity and an almost psychic boost.  As the Moon ripens
towards the 23rd, it acts like a planetary trigger, pushing the button of emotion, so prepare for an
eruption as the structures which support you quake, bringing a shift in the right direction.

Leo: If you really want something, how do you go about getting it?  This month, you find out as
you take stock of your material possessions and inner resources, deliberating on what you need
to increase your wealth and setting your sights on some, not so far off, dreams.  The energy of the
New Moon on the 8th, in your house of finance sets things in motion.  By the 22nd the Sun moves
into Libra, bringing contact once again with Uranus and Jupiter, this may hasten developments with
regards to joint finances or some of the more transformative issues of life.  

Virgo: This month is about renewal and the beginning of a new cycle, the spotlight is on you. 
Now is the time to make a good impression and project the positive aspects of your personality. 
Internally, your thought’s centre on your life’s goals, making plans and understanding your needs is a
productive use of this energy.  A door way opens on the 8th, while energy moves through it from
the 12th, creating a space for quite profound understandings of oneself, the people you meet now
are significant and help you to move forward.

UK 0808 120 9694 USA 1877 878 3868 AUS 1800 333 007

Libra: Before a new cycle begins assimilation of the years happenings naturally occur; this is a
time for reflection.  Potentially tricky though, as your popularity seems to be on the rise during
the first week of the month, but thankfully a sense of inner balance prevails allowing you to give
your attention to creative partners and your inner world.  On the 7th and 8th, testing situations
call for flexibility. The Equinox on the 22nd ushers the Sun into your sign and with it something
out of the ordinary shining light on your need for renewal in the areas of work and relationship.

Scorpio: Your mind is on community issues this month, inwardly aligning your needs with
those of the like minded individuals around you.  Deep communications stir within, calling forth a
strong spiritual desire to belong.  Pluto moving forward from the 14th provides a chance to recap
recent teachings from a more holistic viewpoint.   After the 18th you uncover opportunities
regarding relationship and your sense of self, this is a very worthwhile time with discipline and co-
operation you can build a new creative path for yourself and others to live more harmoniously

Sagittarius: Your inner journey moves to your external goals and life path, mentally seeking
balance between your needs and those of family and friends at this time of year.  By making
adjustments to outer resources and how you relate to others, you become truer to yourself in the
long run and please those around you.  The Moon in your sign on the 15th promotes the power to
resolve ongoing issues, tie up loose ends and move on.  Unexpected opportunities come around the
18th, perhaps in the form of an email or news about travel or family.  Certainly Jupiter’s energy
deepens your understanding of an issue and that in itself is a gift.

Capricorn: Now is the time to recognise the higher meaning within the turbulence of the past
months.  By opening your vision to a different perspective and developing understanding of the
purging process you are experiencing, you bring forth strength to continue with this dramatic
overhaul of your life.   Early month, the energies of service to others and yourself are
balanced, affecting career opportunities as people notice your practical wisdom.  The Full Moon in
fiery Aries on the 23rd awakens recent dramas, offering you a chance to release tension by
communicating authentically with others.

Aquarius: September denotes a time of shared experience, perhaps its financial or emotional,
either way it’s intense and calls for a degree of letting go to allow for regeneration and
transcendence.  Talking and working issues out is easier in the first week of the month, wait until
after the 7th for finalising new insights regarding love or money as these may result in a change of
plan.  From the 20th, your chart rulers and several other planets will be connecting, highlighting
once again the need for change and understanding within the areas of finance and self worth, in
other words trust yourself to realise your dreams.

Pisces: The very nature of Pisces is that of Oneness.  Often for you watery souls sacrifice of self
may be used to deny responsibility for your inner needs.   September divides the one into the two
in an effort to bring wholeness, conscious awareness of the balance of yin and yang within yourself,
enabling acts of compassion for yourself and others.  Jupiter’s return to your sign on the 8th, adds a
touch of mystical magic to your life, with a few surprises on the 18th. The Moon’s powerful vibes on
the 22nd will help you feel what is right for you within those important relationships.

First Degree Reiki Course - Limited Places Still Available
September 25th & 26, 2010

The Origin Educere Retreat Centre, on the beautiful Isle of Skye is offering a course in Usui Ryoho Reiki (level
1) during September. This two day course will be taught by Graham Watt, a traditional Reiki Master/Teacher,
with over 15 years experience.

Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is a Japanese word meaning Rei (Wisdom or the higher power) and Ki (Life force
energy). The Reiki system of healing as we know it today, evolved from Japan with the dedication and
experience of Dr Mikao Usui (1926). It is defined as a "laying on of hands" healing system, which allows the
energy to be sent where it is needed. Graham is also a practising Shaman and incorporates some of the
energy reading and sensing techniques used by Shamans the world over in his Reiki training, making these
courses quite unique.

Graham believes that we all are individual beings with hidden strengths and abilities,
teaching from the heart with compassion,he encourages students to look inwards and
recognize their true potential.
