Your horoscope for September 6 to 12, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mercury has just dropped the puck in worker-bee Virgo. On Thursday, Saturn ends the retrograde and the holdup cycle it started in April. Both transits set the stage for getting something constructive accomplished.

      Early Friday, Mercury in Virgo engages Saturn and Uranus by trine. It’s an excellent work-it-out, make-it-real transit. We can get better onto task, scoop a better price or deal, or fill in the blank. Along with a sun/Neptune opposition, Friday sets an optimal backdrop for creative endeavour, commerce, money matters, connecting, and manifesting. It’s also good for sorting out fact from fiction or wishful thinking.

      Turning a corner on Saturday, Venus and Mars now launch a critical next phase regarding relationships, social politics, money matters, survival of the fittest, and the shaping of a new reality.

      Venus enters Scorpio on Sunday, accompanied by a new moon in Virgo. Venus is very powerful in the sign of the hidden mysteries. Venus can be a destructive and undermining force or it can be utterly transforming and regenerating. Turning retrograde next month in Scorpio, there will be no skirting around the karmic necessity.

      Entering Aquarius late Monday night, Mars will now pick up the slack from that which was introduced or ignited last May. With both planets forcing the issues, expect the next couple of months to be defining. Venus in Scorpio correlates to the business of oil and to addictions of all kinds; Mars in Aquarius correlates to fracking but also to new energy, new technology, and a new social world order. There is absolutely no reason to keep undermining the survival of life on the planet.
