Horoscope for the week beginning September 8

By Michael O’Connor

Tip of the Week

Mercury turned direct on September 5 and now re-enters Virgo on the ninth. Mercury is strongly placed in Virgo, but the retrograde cycle produces curve balls, communications challenges, misunderstandings and other such annoyances, even when in the best of signs. So, now back in Virgo and direct, Mercury will have its chance to shine.

Saturn also turned direct after many months of retrograde on August 31, and none of the other personal planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars, and the social planets, Jupiter and Saturn, are retrograde which means that things can move along more smoothly than they have over much of the summer. The trans-social planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all still retrograde, but these are symbolic of much larger themes so the impact is less immediate and obvious in our personal lives.

Autumn Equinox is rapidly approaching and occurs this year on September 23. It so happens that there is a lot of excitement surrounding theories that the planetary alignments on this day represent the manifestation of biblical prophecy. This looking to signs in the heavens is a clear indication of the importance of Astrology in ancient times. I will elaborate on this dramatic theme in my upcoming newsletter.

Sept. 8 – 14

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

As summer fades, you are beginning to get serious about work. Your focus and resolve is deepening. Yet, you also still want to play. It may feel like you have not had as much fun as you feel you want and need. Creative projects represent the ideal solution. Productivity that includes art and entertainment will prove very satisfying.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Your focus remains strong on home and family. You have already begun to get serious about projects you want to do and this trend will continue. Feeling as confident as you would like to might prove to be a challenge, but the flow stands to get progressively easier over the coming weeks. The catch is you will be challenged to work harder.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have begun to dig in deeply and to make some serious moves, both literally and figuratively. A creative mood prevails and many ideas are pouring in. It may prove wise to capture these inspirations now even if you only act on them later. Be proactive and exercise your visionary mind regarding future dreams and goals.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your energy levels are on a steady rise. You are in the mood to get things done. Tackling big projects feels easier. Making key investments is featured. You want returns on your efforts and purchases so are willing to pay more to get higher quality. You generally remain on an upward swing especially if a steady learning curve is underway.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Over the past several weeks you have probably taken some key initiatives. This momentum continues and is gaining speed. Yet, you have entered the work phase and it is not enough to dream and imagine. This is when the inspiration must be backed by perspiration. Get projects in motion and affirm your resolve to be disciplined.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

The Sun and Mars in your sign signifies the impulse to take new leads. Mercury and Venus will join in soon, so the theme is extra strong. As ever, the journey always begins with the first steps. This represents the planning and the drafting stages. Proceed with this in mind and trust that you will get to the finer details, later.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Last month, you began to reveal new modes of self-expression. This could have come in the form of new projects, interests and/or collective involvements. Now there comes the challenge to follow through. You may feel intimidated for one reason or another and therefore avoidant of further involvement. Overcoming inner doubt and hesitation may be required to persevere.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you have answered the call to ‘put it out there’ then you have been on an exciting roll. This has supported a new sense of confidence. Now you feel even bolder and determined. Yet, you also have to work harder. Your best efforts now are to gain recognition. This may include a learning curve and new tools, techniques and methods.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Exploring new territory guided by what and perhaps who you love continues as a central theme. Yet now you want returns for your efforts. A learning curve which includes giving and/or receiving some kind of training is indicated. Your focus will become increasingly more practical over the coming weeks.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are in the midst of some deep changes. These are pushing you to see a bigger picture. This may require that you push through learned beliefs, convictions and perceptions that stand in the way of who you feel you truly are and/or what you feel you need at this time. Take the time to step back and re-evaluate… everything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have taken a plunge into deeper waters. Whatever you are doing requires organization and renovation or clearing the old to make way for the new. This could include old attitudes and interpretations as well as prior involvements. The main theme is one of work and deep work at that. One way or another, you feel determined to get to the bottom of things.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

New relationship involvements are suddenly taking on a lot of momentum. Creative work projects are featured. Circumstances are pushing you to give a lot now. This trend will continue over the coming weeks and will bring returns, eventually. Be careful not to let critical analysis of matters to turn into criticism of others. Focus to be constructive.
