The week kicks off with a New Moon, which is/was exact on Sunday September 9. It’s a New Moon in Virgo, and for many of us it will be a new beginning. We can start new routines, some of which may relate to health and diet. On a darker note, the New Moon might be linked to conspiracies and behind the scenes operations. So perhaps it is a good time for plotting, provided our schemes are legal and above board.
It should also be noted that Venus is now in Scorpio. The planet of beauty, love and harmony has lost some of its shine, and decisions about fashion, dress and romance may be highly suspect.
Also, Mars moves from Capricorn to Aquarius. Some of us may put our energy into ideallistic pursuits. Others may be attracted to the extremes.
And here are my horoscopes for the week starting on Monday September 10 2018:
Aries You’re feeling more positive about the world and its prospects, and perhaps you can dare to dream. The grey walls of 2018 can give way to something better. However nothing happens without a struggle, and in mid-week there’s a win-lose situation. Which side are you on? It all depends on your attitude.
Taurus Venus, your ruler, is establishing itself in Scorpio, your opposite sign. Like it or not, you are focused on other people and their feelings. Their darker emotions are available, and passions are creeping to the surface. And once you know what someone is feeling, you must act appropriately. Perfect knowledge doesn’t always lead to good actions.
Gemini This week you’re more sensitive than usual. You can see things that other people miss, and in many cases you’ll know what’s going to happen next. However you mustn’t make assumptions about the future. There are things you want and you want them now – but impulsive actions could be costly. Those close to you aren’t satisfied with second best.
Cancer There are moments of anger – or is it just moodiness? People and events can be annoying, and it can be hard to hide your feelings. But be careful what you say – your words could so easily be misinterpreted. Elsewhere, those that claim to have the most experience are often the least trustworthy. Words without evidence are of little value.
Leo The Sun, your ruler, makes a powerful aspect to Pluto. You can make things happen, especially when it comes to money. Of course this still means that you have to work in the realm of the possible, but if belief is matched with realism then many things are possible. The details seem boring, but out of them something wonderful can emerge.
Virgo You need to keep focused. There are plenty of distractions, and relationships could be confusing. But if you are self-sufficient there is no reason why it can’t be a great week. Your mind will be on good form, and complex problems can be resolved very quickly. And if something needs to be done, it should be done quietly – and probably without much consultation.
Libra Venus is now in Scorpio. For Librans this is important, because Venus is your ruler. You’re going to be more emotional and brooding than usual and at the same time the financial dimension will loom large. While Librans can be careless with money, perhaps spending money on useless junk, this week you’ll want to hang on to what you’ve got.,
Scorpio You’re being pulled in two directions. On one hand you want to reach out to other people – after all, Venus, the planet of harmony, is now in you star sign. However there are going to be times when other people are going to be irritating, and it could be difficult to hide your true feelings. So the moment you feel your hackles rising you should retreat into a safe space.
Sagittarius Jupiter makes a 60-degree aspect to Pluto. It’s an aspect that’s relatively uncommon and it will encourage you to make the most of your resources. Indeed, you will want to be successful, and you’ll have the capacity to put huge amounts of effort into the achievement of your goals. But don’t be surprised if you get more than you bargained for.
Capricorn You give the impression of being cool and calm, the kind of person who won’t cause a storm. However you have the capacity for creating real transformation. It’s the kind of transformation that at first won’t be noticed, but as time elapses your true power will be revealed. Someone close to you is accident prone – keep the Ming vases under wraps!
Aquarus The planet Mars is moving into your star sign. Between now and mid-November you are going to be more dynamic, and you’ll be able to assert yourself in new ways. However there may be times when you are too impulsive, and do things that you later regret. Also, you should avoid activities that are dangerous – even if you enjoy them.
Pisces Mercury aspects Neptune, across the main axis of your solar chart. Your psychic powers are on great form, but that’s a mixed blessing. A bit of information can be useful, a lot of information can be overwhelming. In both business and love your uncertainty could prove your undoing. Be clear about your decisions, and don’t make a public show of dithering.
