GEMINI September 2020 Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)
Self-confidence continues to run high. Mars gives you a solid enthusiastic nature. As you move toward September the 15th be careful of being hard on yourself and those you care about. The Sun in Virgo will start to run square to Mars, which can mean problems and arguments. Be mindful of stubborn tendencies rearing their obstinate heads. Don’t take yourself so seriously.
All Buddhists with a Gemini Sun might consider a meditation retreat. The Mars Sun aspect mid month is useful for self-review. You will need to be cool and observant for the last 2 weeks of September.
CANCER September Horoscope 2020 (June 21 – July 22)
It is fairly quiet for you again. Mercury runs square your Sun sign, so don’t let other people’s opinions catch you up. There is little to worry about, so just practice “right speech” and you will be fine. Basic mindful awareness is always an asset for a meditative individual.
All Cancer Buddhists might consider doing quietude meditation. A Zen poem or a Vipassana retreat would be a good choice, especially if they practice full silence.
LEO September 2020 Horoscope (July 23 – August 22)
You are full of romance and visions. Venus and Neptune run opposite each other all the month. This is great as the month starts which starts with sexual fantasies. September 12th onward Venus will run forward and then you will not fantasize but maybe act on your affection for others. That can become hedonism and the desire to party till the end of the month. Avoid intoxicants though as your mind will be made very unclear and bad decisions can arise.
All Buddhist with a Leo Sun need to be mindful of their desires. There is a strong tendency to project one’s wishes onto others and completely confuse the situation. Meditate on the 9 round personal impermanence and especially the fact that the body and its needs are not to be gratified. Your body is the reason you will die, so why cater to its needs so much?
VIRGO September Horoscope 2020 (August 23 – September 22)
Happy Birthday. You might consider giving your parents a present instead of expecting one from them. They gave you this body and deserve some complimentary gifts in thanks for the life you now live. As for the month’s activities, there is a strong feeling of power and direction. Mars and the Sun run together, giving the sense of empowerment. Problem is Mars squares the Sun the whole month, which can mean one over reacts. It is not a question of desire, it is a question of intensity in the direction of the desire. Back off when people don’t appreciate your enthusiasm.
All Virgo Buddhists wish for order and cleanliness. A wrathful deity retreat would be a good choice as you have strong energy. Just be careful when offering tzok, the bi-monthly tantric feast, as alcohol may have a bad effect on you.
LIBRA September 2020 Horoscope (September 23 – October 22)
Happy Birthday. You might consider giving your parents a present instead of expecting one from them. They gave you this body and deserve some complimentary gifts in thanks for the life you now live.

You are a very attractive individual though for the middle 10 days of the month, so inspire people with your authentic presence and charm.

SCORPIO September Horoscope 2020 (October 23 – November 21)
You are quiet and peaceful as the month starts. By September 5th your self indulgent tendencies will start to increase. Neptune and Venus will run square your sign. Avoid the desire to take intoxicants and definitely recognize the suffering nature of the samsara of indulgence. It is not that pleasure is bad, it is the addictive attraction to pleasure that causes the problems
Scorpio Buddhists might think about the first verses of Atisha’s mind training text, “Wheel of Sharp Weapons.” It says, “Only Bodhisattvas can use desire and such things, if others were to try it they would forfeit their chance for release.”
SAGITTARIUS September 2020 Horoscope (November 22 – December 21)
Faith and Joy continue this month effecting you. Pluto is often given a bad rap as moody, depressive and intense. Pluto for a spiritual individual can become faith and focus. The need to resonate with one’s belief is the main issue with Pluto. This month there are strong feelings surging through you. The Sun and Uranus run square, so be careful of over reacting. The feeling seems strong but possibly that is the problem, they are too strong. Back off and be peaceful.
Sagittarius Buddhists might practice detachment this month. Detachment is not grasping to the outcome of actions. If something works well, then fine. If something does not come to fruition, then that is fine too. Don’t be apathetic about the outcome, just know the limits of acceptable activity.
CAPRICORN September Horoscope 2020 (December 22 – January 19)
You have lots of support from the Sun, Uranus and Mercury this month. Therefore do things that benefit others in small ways. The earth signs are always practical, so this is the time to do those little things that help others realize their goals.
Capricorn Buddhists have a natural detachment. Use it to see what is best for whatever comes your way. Open spiritual awareness capitalizes on all situations, not just the one’s you think are useful. Discover that larger view and express it in action.
AQUARIUS September 2020 Horoscope (January 20 – February 18)
Neptune stimulates your Sun sign to new levels of spiritual insight. This planet has been in Aquarius for a few years now and if life has been complex it had solid reasons for feeling that way. Your sensual imagination is very strong right now. Venus is in opposition the whole month and gives you great sensuous visions. Be careful of over stepping your capacity. The idealism is so attractive but the reality is not quite as shiny as you see it. You are a little too romantic, so tone down your expectations.
Aquarius Buddhists could consider taking Bodhicitta vows, or even the 8 Mahayana precepts daily for the month. Idealism is strong, so channel it in good directions.
PISCES September Horoscope 2020 (February 19 – March 20)
Things are much more active now with the Sun and Uranus running in opposition. Be careful not to be over extended, as the opposition can make one try to be in too many places at one time. Pisces can be a little absentminded, so keep awareness clear to avoid this problem.
Pisces Buddhists might find themselves busy with many projects this month. Spend extra time each morning working with your motivation. Like the great Khadampa masters of Tibet advocate, “Do the two actions.” In the morning motivate and in the evening appraise the day and reaffirm positive intentions.
