Your horoscope for September 8 to 14, 2011
Mercury is a busy guy in the days preceding the harvest moon on Monday. On September 8, the messenger planet opposes Neptune for the third and final time. This cycle began at the end of July with the Sudan crisis and Murdoch’s phone-hacking scandal claiming the media spotlight. It peaked on August 6 with the London riots in full swing, and it ends with the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 and Gadhafi’s final curtain call.
If you have come up empty so far—or if you have felt confused, disarmed, or diffused—you’ll welcome the end of this triple alignment. Consider it like coming out of a dark tunnel. You’ll soon find that elusive missing key, which will unlock potentials that are now ready to emerge. Along with the exposing full moon in Pisces on September 12, Mercury’s opposition to Chiron on September 10 underscores the fated-ness of the moment. Out there in the world—and in your own universe, too—expect a rapid succession of events to thrust into gear through September 14 and beyond.
The summer eclipse catalysts continue to roll out destiny’s storyboard. For rebel fighters and brave souls everywhere, we now arrive at the harvesting point along this particular karmic timeline. That which has been ripening will now bear its fruit.
March 21 - April 20
If you are waiting for inspiration or the momentum to strike, this week’s stars will get your freight train going, especially once the full moon reveals its hidden ace. Thursday through Monday, the unforeseen can be testing, seducing, draining, or timely. Aim for simplicity, straightforwardness, and expediency. Pick worthy battles and, if blindsided or caught short, remember that less is best.
April 21 - May 20
The next few days will give you a much clearer idea of where you best potentials lie. Someone of significance may be instrumental in delivering destiny’s hand. A new social network, career position, friendship, or romance could take you in a whole new direction. By the middle of next week, you should gain the confirmation you seek. Much can be solidified, secured, or concluded.
May 21 - June 21
Over the next few days, you may feel the need to give up, give in, back out, or forgo a few of your rules. Prior to the full moon, it can be difficult to reach others or get things said and done. After the full moon, you’ll find you have more going for, rather than against, you. You can right it, recoup, or gain quickly.
June 22 - July 22
There’s more on the way. If you have been on the lookout but haven’t been successful yet, check the listings again. A vacancy or position could come available. Whether to do with a financial commitment, speaking your mind, or facing the music, the stars set it in motion now. Pounce on opportunity. By mid next week, you’ll reach a conclusion or cutoff point.
July 23 - August 22
Give peace a chance. In other words, stop worrying about things beyond your control. Lucrative potentials are brewing for you now. In fact, you are entering a fertile cycle that will extend through November. Financially, emotionally, and spiritually, examine what, who, and where serves you best. Through the full moon and beyond, watch for answers to appear of their own accord.
August 23 - September 22
It’s high-stakes time. Others expect you to give everything and then some. By the same token, you have high expectations for yourself, too. You may not be where you want to be just yet, but you will be soon enough. Starting on Thursday, Mercury in Virgo acts as a revitalizing force, especially for new initiatives. You’ll get back into the game, perhaps unexpectedly so.
September 23 - October 23
You are moving in a new direction and things seem to be falling into place quite well. Still, through next Monday, hold something in reserve, maintain your safeguards, and wait and see. The full moon can derail you temporarily or deliver something extra. Either way, you’ll speed through it. By Wednesday, you’ll have it figured out and nailed down, or you’ll move on.
October 24 - November 22
Your edginess is a signal that you are suppressing more than you let on. Until the answer, clarity, or respect comes, try to detach and move on to other things. You should see an opening or clearing as of Sunday forward. By the time Monday’s revealing and healing full moon comes and goes, you will have climbed up and down a mountain.
November 23 - December 21
Recent musings or explorations have most likely raised a second wind and provided you with a confidence boost. Still, through Monday’s full moon, you could feel tested. Are you being realistic with your time, money, or heart? Will your efforts prove to be worth it? Uncertainty, blocks, or doubt will be history once the new week overtakes you.
December 22 - January 20
Why feel guilt for the things you want or the things you have? Do the opinions of others support you, run interference, or hold you back? It’s time to reconcile with the concept of deserving. Something previously shelved or forgotten reclaims your attention. Whether it’s an object, ambition, moxie, or mojo, something lost may now be found.
January 21 - February 19
A new fire or flame is about to overtake you. Perhaps it already has launched. Over this next week, you’ll discover and uncover plenty more. This is a time to let your heart—not your head—take the lead. Uncertainty can plague you but the only way to know for sure is to try it on for size.
February 20 - March 20
When faced with a choice or dilemma, stick to your bottom line. What do you want? What do need to get out of it? Don’t let guilt be the tiebreaker. The tried and true is often the safer bet, but right now there are no guarantees. Stretch yourself. Aim for the future, not the past.
