It’s the final run-up to the Autumnal Equinox, when the Sun crosses the equator. The exact moment of the Equinox is 2.54 am London time on Sunday September 23 – which is 9.54 pm on Saturday 22 September in New York. A moment of silence, when the energy of the Cosmos slips into the terrestial sphere.
On Tuesday and Wednesday there is a stressful, 90-degree aspect between Mars and Uranus. It’s a sudden, unstable energy, connected with explosions, eruptions and revolutions. Be careful in the chemistry lab!
Towards the end of the week there is a comjunction between the Sun and Mercury. Mercury moves from being a morning star to an evening star, and in the process communications could get seriously messed up.
Anyway, here are my horoscopes for the week staring on Monday September 17 2018:
Aries The big event for your sign is a 90-degree aspect between Mars and Uranus. It’s an explosive influence, and things could happen quickly. Yes, there’ll be excitement, but there could also be danger. Something that appears to be fun could so easily be a recipe for disaster – particularly if your friends are involved. Where there’s money there’s trouble.
Taurus Your sign has a reputation for being set in its ways, for wanting things to go on forever without changing. However things are changing, and at some level you realize that the pace of life can’t go on in the same old way. At work you can cause a stir – and in the process you can benefit from other people’s confusion. Technology may be the key.
Gemini There’s something you want to do and you want to do it now. But wait for it! You’re not quite ready for the big shift, and you need to make sure that loose ends from the past are all sorted out. And that probably means spending time at home. Yet thoughts coming from nowhere could be signposts to the road ahead, and you need to be properly prepared before the journey starts.
Cancer Do you forgive or forget? Cancerians have long memories and forgetting is probably not an option. In terms of forgiveness, in most cases it’s not the actions that matter, but instead the person you’re dealing with. Their flaws were with them right from the beginning, and sometimes it is better to accomodate rather than condemn. Situations change, but people don’t.
Leo The Sun makes a conjunction to Mercury. It’s something of a two-edged sword. On one hand you’re very sharp, and you’ll be able to get your message across loud and clear. However you may not listen too hard to what other people are saying, particularly when it comes to money. As a result you could miss some important details.
Virgo Your view is being blocked. There is unimportant information swimming around your environment, which you seem distracted by. And by focusing on the wrong things you could get yourself into trouble. On the other hand, if you open your eyes everything will become clear. You’ll then be able to put your plans into action, with pinpoint accuracy.
Libra At the end of the week it’s the Autumnal Equinox, when the Sun moves into your star sign. However, in those last days before the changeover it’s wise to keep yourself to yourself. You are not quite ready to spread your wings, especially as other people could be erratic. Indeed just when you think that everything is cool and calm, a storm could break out.
Scorpio The average Scorpio is fairly intuitive, and is a good judge of character. However you don’t know all the answers, and there’s plenty of scope for surprise – particularly now, when Mars, your ruler, is making a stressful aspect to Uranus. Someone might behave in a way that you haven’t calculated for. In other words, don’t make assumptions.
Sagittarius Partners are changing gear. Recently they have been ready to express their feelings and opinions, but with the Sun conjuncting Mercury there’s a change of gear. They are moving into a phase where they are becoming more reticent, and you’ll have to make a greater effort to uncover their true feelings. At work someone is in the process of making a mistake.
Capricorn It’s worth taking a careful look at your finances, and you shoudn’t be afraid of tackling complicated issues. That way you have some chance of bomb-proofing your assets. Elsewhere, you should avoid having or developing personal beliefs – at least in the short term. Your false assumptions could turn out to be very expensive.
Aquarius Watch what you’re doing! In your rush to get things done you could leave a trail of chaos. Perhaps you just won’t know what’s going on, and you won’t see what impact you’re having on other people. Be particularly careful when dealing with members of your family – this week they are sensitive, and in certain situations explosive.
Pisces You feel that you need outside support, and that you shouldn’t take the initiative. But what have other people got that you haven’t, particularly this week? Very little actually, and if you do rely on someone else you could be led into a difficult situation. Do things for yourself, and be ready to take responsibility for the consequences.
