The Stars, Above & Within

As long as the human race has walked the earth, we have looked above at the night sky and tried to explain the patterns we have found in the enigmatic night sky. Astrology is how we interpret the stars and their placement, and thus their impact on us.

At Enigma Life, I want you to be able to find all the ways to bring the power of the zodiac into your life.

Sun Signs, Moon Signs & Rising Signs

Most people only know the sign they were born under, and don’t realize that there are two more signs that help make up who they are. The actual name for the commonly known sign is actually the “Sun Sign”. The other two signs are your Moon Sign and your Rising Sign

Sun Sign The most easily identifiable of the three signs, the Sun sign is determined by your birthday. This particular aspect is the sign of your central, or core personality. They also describe, in very general terms, your essential qualities.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all the pressure and anxiety you’re feeling on September 1 and 2 would just melt away? You might get your wish if you can keep your mind off your major worries. Maybe a soothing massage or dip in the pool would do the trick! The battle lines are drawn on September 8 and 9, but only a fool would try and cross you. You’re a born warrior and you won’t give up until you’ve claimed your territory and enjoyed the spoils of victory. It’s easy to open a dialog with almost anyone on September 12 and 13, so chat up a stranger on the bus or new person at work. Before long you’ll be lifetime pals (or at least social media acquaintances). You love to learn about a new culture’s customs and traditions on September 26 and 27, and it’s best to experience them firsthand whenever possible. Book a ticket for as many miles away as your budget can take you. Staying grounded isn’t easy on September 28, 29, and 30, so you’ll need good friends around who can remind you of where you came from. Don’t forget about the people who helped you get where you are today.

It’s no secret that you resist authority from time to time, and September 3, 4, and 5 are no exception. If you have a problem with the way someone is running things, talk about it with them privately instead of bringing it up in front of a group. You’re brave to try a new food that everyone else looks at in disgust on September 12 and 13, and your curiosity and adventurous spirit don’t end when you get up from the table. What other new things will you try, and how will they make your life better? You can’t wait to find out. You embrace life and all it has to offer on September 19 and 20, and no one can accuse you of being passive. The way you see it, there’s no good reason to wait around for things to come to you if you can go out and get them. You’re worried about your financial bottom line on September 26 and 27, and doing some quick calculations might confirm your suspicions. Delve in deeper when you have the time to figure out what’s really going on. Staying positive is easy on September 28, 29, and 30. When you look around, all you see is love.

Stop obsessing about the one thing that’s wrong on September 3, 4, and 5 and start focusing on all the things that are right. And there are plenty! You’re a lot luckier than you feel, Gemini. There is significant forward progress on a work or personal project around September 12 and 13, which may come as a surprise but isn’t totally unbelievable. It’s hard to know how you will react when you’re caught off guard, which is part of the fun. Your observational skills are excellent on September 23, 24, and 25, and you may catch a detail that flies by everyone else. Now that you’re privy to what could be considered private information, what will you do with your newfound knowledge? No one would fault you for using it to your advantage. You’re feeling inflexible on September 26 and 27, and you don’t want to budge once you claim your own little area. Would it really hurt to move over on the couch a bit or make room for someone on a public bench? You’re so stubborn! If you have a profound thought on September 28, 29, or 30, write it down before it gets away. You’re brilliant but flighty.

September 3, 4, and 5 require a delicate balance if you want to remain upright. There’s something to be said for making a blanket tent and just camping out on the floor, but limiting your mobility for too long isn’t good for your overall well-being. You’re in tune with nature on September 6 and 7, so it wouldn’t be unusual to find you hugging a tree or talking to birds. While others may find your behavior odd, Mother Nature wholeheartedly approves. You love putting a good system in place on September 19 and 20, and the more organized you are the better you feel. Deep cleaning areas of the house or washing the car also gives you a feeling of elation, and it’s so good to be able to cross those chores off your to-do list. September 26 and 27 are good days to celebrate your recent accomplishments, so be sure to schedule some quality “me” time. Don’t know how to best spend your spare moments? Just do whatever activity feels good and don’t stop until you’re recharged. You might not project exactly how you feel on September 28, 29, and 30, so pay attention to your body language and facial expressions. And avoid RBF if at all possible!

You love to get or stay healthy on September 1 and 2 by working out, taking a dance class, or sticking to a vegan eating plan, but just be aware that everyone else isn’t following the same strict regimen as you – and that’s okay. If your friends want to eat pizza and veg out in front of the TV, let ‘em! September 6 and 7 are good days to listen to your intuition, because unless your inner voice is just totally off, it’s going to steer you in the right direction. Getting what you want is closer than you think, so just hang on a while longer. You surround yourself with the hip and beautiful people on September 17 and 18, and these are the days you’ll most likely be mistaken for a celebrity. Hey, why not sign a few autographs while you’re at it? No one needs to know who you really are! Your love life is front and center on September 26 and 27, and you’re the focus of many admirers. You’re a Leo, so of course it’s going to go to your head, but at least try to limit the bragging to close friends and family.

When people look at you with a critical eye on September 6 and 7, you will have quick and witty comebacks to their (sometimes negative) comments. It feels good to stand up for yourself, doesn’t it, Virgo? You should do it more often. You easily find people who match your newfound laid-back energy on September 10 and 11, and the last thing you feel like doing is arguing. These are great days to join political or religious discussions and debates just for the fun of it because you won’t be easily provoked. You’re extremely punctual and detail oriented on September 19 and 20, and you stick to a schedule more than most people. However, if you expect others to behave the same way you do, you’ll probably be sadly disappointed. Just do what you do and let everyone else worry about themselves. Other people might let you out of your responsibilities on September 26 and 27, but you hold yourself to a much higher standard. You set the bar very high, and you know yourself well enough to realize you’ll be disappointed if you fall short of it. Keep on trying. Keep on fighting. And never give up.

Having a good time is first on your agenda on September 3, 4, and 5, and you don’t have a hard time finding peeps who want to party with you. Just remember that when it’s time to work, study, or take care of other responsibilities, you need to call it quits and get back to real life. You’re in charge of how the scenario plays out on September 8 and 9, which can be a powerful feeling. You might be proud of it for a while, but it’s not like you’ll let it go to your head. Like most Libras, you’re a fair and balanced person by nature, so it isn’t likely you’ll become an evil dictator overnight (or anytime soon). You’re very aware of your own character flaws on September 12 and 13, but there’s no need to point them out to anyone else. Let a friend or lover go on thinking you’re perfect until they have evidence to the contrary! Uncharacteristic greed or jealousy arises on September 23, 24, or 25, and it might be surprising what you do when you have these kinds of negative emotions. Your actions probably won’t be anything you can’t recover from, but the experience may stick with you just the same.

You aren’t normally the type to haggle, but you can’t resist bargaining for a better price on September 1 and 2. This may be a new skill you didn’t know you had, Scorpio, so use it until you’re satisfied that you’re getting absolutely the best deal possible. Your power is beyond some people’s understanding on September 8 and 9, so you might clash with underlings and other people you’ve been put in charge of. You don’t mean to be bossy, but it is in your nature to want to tell people what to do. If they can’t take the heat, they can get out of the kitchen. Your thoughts are more elusive than usual on September 21 and 22, if that’s even possible. You aren’t about to reveal any secrets about yourself anytime soon, so anyone trying to pry info out of you should just stop now. Good luck seems to be on your side on September 26 and 27, but you’d rather rely on skill to get ahead. Good thing you have both. Friends in high places offer you favors on September 28, 29, and 30, so why not accept their help? You have little to lose and everything to gain from the generosity of other people.

You have an endearing childlike quality on September 8 and 9, and you love to laugh, play games, and just have an all-around innocent good time.

Don’t you love it when a plan comes together? You’re happy when things go your way on September 1 and 2, but your success is due to much more than luck. You work hard for what you have and it shows. Your communication is more erratic than usual on September 12 and 13, but what you lack in clarity you more than makeup for in volume. Do you think if you say it louder people will understand you better? Sometimes the opposite is true. You’re capable of pulling off almost anything you set your mind to on September 19 and 20, and it’s especially true if you have people lining up to help you. Can you accomplish your goals on your own? Yes, absolutely. Is it easier with backup? Yes, absolutely. There’s power in meditation on September 24 and 25, but you can also pray, talk things over with a religious leader, or do anything else in the spiritual category. If there was ever a time to connect with a higher power, this is it. September 28, 29, and 30 are good days to call in favors, so why not start at the top? Cutting out the middleman will save you a lot of time and effort.

The productive energy you feel on September 3, 4, and 5 is transformational. Work doesn’t seem like work and time flies by in large chunks. Is this what it feels like when everything works to your advantage? ’Cuz you could definitely get used to it! You like to go first class all the way on September 10 and 11, and even though it might strain your budget, you pull out all the stops for your sweetie or a first date. Never one to overindulge often, you’re finally in the mood to let go and see where the night takes you. September 14, 15, and 16 aren’t without their fair share of problems, but how you deal with stress may be more important than the root cause itself. Take a deep breath and make encouraging affirmations. Positive thinking can help you out of even the most difficult jam. There are astonishing events taking place in the world on September 17 and 18, but you’ve been too preoccupied to notice. Open your eyes and look around. You’ll be amazed by what you see. An old problem benefits from fresh input and ideas on September 26 and 27, so don’t discount anyone’s advice. You can learn a lot from other people’s mistakes.

If you experience a problem while at a store or restaurant on September 1 or 2, don’t ignore it or look the other way. Talk to a manager or supervisor and see what they can do to remedy the situation for you. You’re worth it, Pisces. Treating yourself with kindness should be the first thing on your agenda on September 6 and 7, because if you don’t, who will? Taking care of yourself before you take care of others doesn’t come naturally, but it will help you to be a better nurturer and caretaker in the long run. You’re nervous about wandering too far outside the box on September 21 and 22, but foreign travel should be your first choice if you can afford it. You know that thrill you get when you’re in a new place where you don’t speak the language and don’t know what adventure awaits you around the next corner? That’s what’s missing from your life. Co-workers or schoolmates could come to your rescue on September 28, 29, and 30, but they may have ulterior motives. Is someone trying to make you look bad in front of an authority figure? Be on your guard in case people aren’t exactly who they seem to be.
