September 2nd - September 29th

Sign ~~ The Vine

(MUHN, like "foot"), vine - The grape (Vitis vinifera L.) is a vine growing as long as 115 feet, in open woodlands and along the edges of forests, but most commonly seen today in cultivation, as the source of wine, grape juice, and the grape juice concentrate that is so widely used as a sweetener. European grapes are extensively cultivated in North America, especially in the southwest, and an industry and an agricultural discipline are devoted to their care and the production of wine. Grapes are in the Grape family (Vitaceae).

Symbol ~~ The White Swan

Character of the Vine:  People born under this sign have a sensual nature with emotions that always run at a high level, yet they can appear remarkably cool in the face of opposition. They are the instinctive organizers of life, always ahead of the field when it comes to contingency plans, and it is a great mistake to underestimate Vine characters.  For people born during the first two weeks, their emotions and energies are more openly expressed.  Their weak points are related to the inherent imbalance of the sign, an inability to come to terms with certain aspects of their lives.  Their positive traits are shown with their natural enthusiasm and support of partners. For people born during th last two weeks under the waning aspect of the Full Moon, this imbalances is "corrected" at the time of the autumnal equinox on September 23rd and they have the ability to forgive with true compassion.  They are, however, rather more difficult to comprehend and they are prone to over-indulge their sensuous nature.  Generally speaking, people born under the Vine sign can help to create harmony and stability, but they can also become some-what parasitical or totally dependent on the good nature of others.
