Your horoscope for September 5 to 11, 2013
Thursday’s new moon in Virgo officially launches our back-to-it/fix-it routine. Aim to make the most efficient use of the tools and resources you have to work with. Streamline, simplify, make lists, create a schedule, and cut back on waste and that inner chatterbox who does you no good. A realistic attitude, a healthy self dialogue, and a conscious best foot forward—that’s the right starting gate. While Mars continues in Leo, aim to get things off the ground with confidence, creativity, and your wholehearted best show.
Despite an ongoing pressure ceiling, Saturday and Sunday’s stars keep life moving along, especially regarding home and family matters.
Early Monday morning, Mercury treks into Libra. Through September 29, Mercury seeks to reconcile imbalances and inequities, as well as create more harmony and a win/win relationship base. It puts the focus on money talks, contract negotiations, cooperative or partnership ventures, and social justice.
The past week has seen some holding off or putting off, but as Mars completes a square-off aspect with Saturn early Monday morning, the brakes come off. As of late Tuesday night, when Venus treks into Scorpio, it will be time to get down to the nitty-gritty and set the agenda in motion. When Venus tours Scorpio, there’s no more skirting the issues; it’s power-play time. Karmic or actual, by September 18, Venus and Saturn complete a contract and/or start a new one.
March 19 - April 19
Thursday’s new moon provides fresh fuel for work or a fix-it project. As of the weekend, you’ll start to hit an upswing. By next week, you’ll find you are better able to get into the routine. Mercury in Libra, starting Monday, puts you back into social circulation. Venus in Scorpio, starting late Wednesday, increases the focus on a financial or professional timetable.
April 19 - May 20
Your opportunities and potentials are greater than you can see now. Have trust and stay receptive, open, and hopeful. Social,
romantic, or on your own, Friday/Saturday works like a charm. The start of the new week brings you more to work with and toward. Mercury and Venus put an added focus on grooming, gaining, and maintaining support, both on and off the job.
May 20 - June 20
Consider Thursday’s new moon in Virgo your fresh-start initiative and promise yourself that you are going to get down to business. Once you make the commitment, you’ll find that making it work for yourself isn’t as hard as you anticipated. In fact, Mercury and Venus help you achieve a better equilibrium and stay focused and on-task. Friday/Saturday, pleasure beckons.
June 20 - July 22
Aim to get yourself better informed and educated. Thursday’s new moon suggests it’s wise to be a detail buff and to keep talking, negotiating, or asking questions until you feel satisfied and secure. Don’t wait until something breaks down or proves obsolete; stay a step ahead and upgrade where you can. Starting Wednesday, Venus in Scorpio enhances your opportunity, options, and odds.
July 22 - August 22
The new moon in Virgo can draw attention to shortfalls or the work that lies ahead, but it can also move you onto a more productive track. Mars in Leo keeps you on a steady fresh-fuel supply through mid October. Even so, you can feel under pressure until Mars and Saturn square it off next Monday.
August 22 - September 22
Thursday’s new moon is full of promise, but it’s up to you to make full use of it. How? By giving something or someone new a shot. (By the way, that someone new may be you.) Mercury moving into Libra on Monday and Venus into Scorpio on Tuesday helps you create more inner accord and a more dynamic outer presentation.
September 22 - October 22
Despite this being a good weekend to kick back and let serendipity take you where it may, a building aspect between Mars and Saturn can keep a serious spin on life through early next week. Starting Monday, Mercury in Libra should get you moving faster. Venus exits Libra on Tuesday but provides you with more motivation, dedication, and financial potential as it moves through Scorpio.
October 22 - November 21
One thing builds on another. Aim for a short-range goal or more immediate target and it will set you up for the next. Practical measures and a good work strategy are your most effective tools. Through Monday, you may have to work to put on the show, but once Venus enters Scorpio on Tuesday, more attention and favour come your way naturally.
November 21 - December 21
You may have to work for it a little harder now, but you should be able to get yourself there. Thursday’s new moon requires that you stay responsible and practical, but it will reward you for a job well done. On Friday/Saturday, connect, indulge, and conjure. As of the start of next week, Mercury and Venus set life onto an easier flow.
December 21 - January 20
Virgo month is always when you feel at the top of your game. Through mid October, Mars in Leo keeps your “can do” and “I deserve” right where they should be. Through Monday, there’s a reality to process, but overall the new moon cycle is a confidence builder. Next week, Mercury and Venus help you gain ground.
January 20 - February 18
The new moon in Virgo calls for you to address what’s necessary and not put it off any longer. Through Monday, you could meet with inner resistance or find you have a limited ability to get through to someone, but don’t give up; time and conscious effort are needed. Past Monday/Tuesday, you’ll see things start to add up.
February 18 - March 19
Set a goal and go. Although they’re on a pressure surge through Monday, Mars and Saturn provide you with the determination and know-how to reach your objective. Mercury in Libra increases financial opportunity and relationship accord. Loaning you more confidence, sway, and charisma, Venus in Scorpio starting Tuesday helps you create a stronger, more effective impact.
