I can’t help noticing that the condition of Venus is continuing to deteriorate. It is in Scorpio, the sign of its detriment, and it is slowing down, in preparation for its retrograde movement at the beginning of next month. Activities connected with fashion and beauty should be scaled back, and it is definitely not a good time to be spending money on clothes and design.
Elsewhere, the Sun is now in Libra, where it makes an 120-degree aspect to Mars. The Autumn has an energetic start – or should I say Spring, if you’re South of the Equator. New projects and plans, which in many cases will have an inventive streak.
And as you have perhaps noticed the Moon is getting bigger, and at the beginning of the week there is a Full Moon. Something is revealed, which in the first instance might be a restraint rather than an opportunity. After all, the Full Moon is in 90-degree aspect to Saturn, the planet of limitation.
But what about Donald Trump? Right now he’s being pushed into mixing with people he’d rather not associate with. Perhaps such people get him down, or remind him of the misery of the human condition.
Anyway, here are my forecasts for the twelve signs, for the week starting on Monday September 24 2018:
Aries You don’t have to be a solo operator. There are people out there who can be very useful, if you just give them a chance. And if you’re engaged in an important task your team-building skills will be excellent. Getting results is what matters, not protecting your ego. Yet in terms of relationships, this week’s Full Moon may presage a change of gear – or is it a change of direction?
Taurus You’re moving into a stage of life where you are more dependent on other people than usual. Their decisions matter, and it will be difficult to have much of an influence. Of course it would help if you were not in a relationship, but sometimes being alone isn’t an option. When it comes to money you should avoid making expensive purchases.
Cancer The Full Moon at the beginning of the week is a serious business. You’re aware that some major forces are at work, that you can’t completely control. It might feel that the best strategy is to retreat, but instead you need to understand you role in the situation. By embracing the struggle you can start making headway. Partners are stubborn – and just because they are right doesn’t mean that they should be tolerated.
Leo In yourself you feel a new sense of vitality – you can make things happen and your strength is at a maximum. However there is no need to be in a hurry. Some things need to develop, in their own quiet way. So don’t do more than you have to. Elsewhere, those close to you are feeling tense, and their inner selves could set the pace. For your part, you should take a step back.
Virgo From a financial point of view things are moving forward at a fast pace, and the Full Moon at the beginning of the week could bring things to a head. Some Virgoans will realize that there are some things they can’t afford, and that there are planned purchases which need to be put on hold. But not being able to afford a particular item doesn’t mean that you can’t have it. Can you make it yourself? Or else buy it cheaper somewhere else?
Libra The Sun is now in your star sign, where it aspects Mars. It’s your time of year, and you’ll be able to assert yourself – in a joyful and creative way. And if you want to relax and have fun, that’s fine. Some Librans will find themselves acting as go-betweens – getting people who dislike or distrust each other to at least come to a compromise.
Scorpio In the Scorpio chart the Sun has a special connection with career. And now the Sun is moving through a low profile section of your horoscope. You’ll do your best work when you are alone, and now would be a good time to work on private projects, which may require an element of secrecy. In your domestic environment you can make some useful changes.
Sagittarius Your star sign falls on the midpoint of a favourable aspect between the Sun in Libra and Mars in Aquarius. You feel that something is changing, that your luck is moving up a notch. And there’ll be a particular moment where you need to make a decision – you need to act promptly, but with a full knowledge of the risks and rewards.
Capricorn At the start of the week there is an important configuation – the Full Moon aspects Saturn in Capricorn. For many Capricorns it’s a major event, that marks a beginning and an end. And in most cases change is not about anything external. It’s about an inner realization that you’ve changed and the world’s changed. Be nice to partners and lovers.
Aquarius From a romantic perspective it could be a good week for Aquarians, particularly if you’re female. The Sun, your relationship ruler, is making a fortunate aspect to Mars in Aquarius. If you’re single you’re attracting a new energy, if that’s what you want. In terms of your social life, you can be the centre of attention, with your friends following your lead.
Pisces You know what’s going on, better than anyone else. You can pick up the subtle emotional currents that other people miss, and in terms of money you can spot disasters and miscalculations a mile off. And it’s probably best that you keep your own counsel – outside opinions are less than helpful, and they could spoil your good judgement.
