Your horoscope for September 8 to 14, 2016

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      We are one week into Mercury retrograde and have two more to go. Triple-check everything; revisit and revise as necessary. Delay big-ticket purchases, don’t sweat the small stuff, and stay alert to details, inklings, messages, and clues. Put safety, health, and wellness first.

      Jupiter exits Virgo for Libra on Friday. Generally speaking, it’s good news, but of course the planets can be experienced in a myriad of ways. Every 12 years Jupiter will bestow its growth and abundance mandate on a particular area of your birth chart. For this next year, Jupiter in Libra increases the scope of relationships, partnerships, and social trends. Cooperation, collaboration, diplomacy, alliances, and reconciliation gain attention. While Libra is an archetype that strives for harmony, balance, equality, and peace, the sign of the scales is prone to swings and extremes.

      When the going is good, Jupiter increases happiness, pleasure, romance, and profits. Imbalanced Jupiter in Libra swings toward enmeshment, codependency, competitiveness, and one-sided give, take, or gain. The number of indecisive, fickle, or noncommittal voters could grow as the United States moves closer to election day.

      On Saturday, Saturn in Sagittarius turns a final corner with Neptune in Pisces. While the transit can be a notable event trigger, more importantly, it marks the third-quarter threshold of a bigger-picture transition cycle. At an intensification peak for this past year or two, Saturn/Neptune has pushed us through the deep end of the uncharted while we wrestle with the past and unwrap the future. Potentials now also reach a turning point. Don’t dwell on loss or you’ll miss out. Keep hopeful, keep going!

      March 20 - April 20

      Jupiter has spent the past year piling up the work and the necessity to correct or heal. As of Friday, Jupiter exits Virgo and lightens up on these tasks. For this next year, Jupiter boosts social life, partnerships, and romantic and financial prospects. A legal matter or contract can gain good ground too. Monday/Tuesday are optimum for talks, meetings, and setting wheels in motion.

      April 20 - May 21

      Saturn/Neptune has pushed you through a major two-year transition. Likely it’s been a slow and laborious process. Even if it isn’t all nailed down quite yet, you’ve surpassed the 50/50 mark. You are now officially out of your past and into your future. Jupiter into Libra tips the scales regarding health, work, and relationships. Sunday to Wednesday, you’re on the upswing.

      May 21 - June 21

      While the sun and Mercury retrograde in Virgo keep you on the run with home and family matters, as of Friday, Jupiter into Libra sets you onto a positive track regarding creative projects, career/financial ambitions, and your social and love life. Haven’t been able to figure it out, nail it down, or let go of it? Sunday to Tuesday are prime for just that.

      June 21 - July 22

      Friday’s Mercury retrograde in opposition to Chiron can find you on a rethink of current plans or previously missed opportunities. It can also put you on a hunt for something missing or allow you to repeat or revisit something that holds promise. Jupiter into Libra can benefit home, real estate, family relationships, or cohabitation. It may increase your monthly overhead, too.

      July 22 - August 23

      Friday’s Mercury retrograde can prompt a slip of the tongue, an oversight, an unforeseeable or impulsive moment, or a saving grace. Somehow it works out okay. Jupiter into Libra puts you into a better communication, social, or connect-the-dots flow. Saturday/Sunday, aim to get it under better control or make it official. Monday/Tuesday: stay in the moment, innovate. A new element or twist does the trick.

      August 23 - September 23

      Activities, conversations, coincidence, timing, and impressions are of significant impact. Friday’s Mercury/Chiron keeps you working it out on several levels at the same time. Along with Saturn/Neptune, Jupiter into Libra improves self-worth, net worth, and relationships. Over this next year, you’ll gain fuller use of your natural talents and skills. It’s blossom time! Sunday’s your best. Through Wednesday, carry on.

      September 23 - October 23

      While Mercury continues in retrograde, out of sight is not out of mind—or out of commission. State of mind also contributes to state of health. Keep alert, play it safe, but don’t stop or you could miss out. Jupiter’s one-year transit of your sign, starting Friday, boosts energy, social popularity, creativity, and sense of can-do. Sunday through Tuesday, trust instincts, break new ground.

      October 23 - November 22

      Friday could dish up inconvenient or costly revisions. You’ll manage. Can’t please them all. Saturn/Neptune moves past a block, a mind-set, or your own resistance. Sunday’s a productive, get-down-to-business, take-charge day. Monday/Tuesday, jump on it quick, call it like you see it, nip it in the bud. By Wednesday, you should find yourself on a smooth sail. Still, the week stays on brew.

      November 22 - December 21

      Thursday/Friday puts you on go, in more ways than one. Mercury retrograde can sidetrack you with the unexpected. Some things are hard to admit, swallow, or relinquish. A revisit can lead to a new understanding or solution. Along with Saturn/Neptune’s turn of the wheel, Jupiter into Libra also resets the compass. Jupiter enhances relationships, popularity, and income. Monday/Tuesday fast-tracks you/it/them.

      December 21 - January 20

      Saturn and Neptune are on the last leg of a two-year straddle-past-and-future cycle. To a large extent, perhaps you have felt like you were driving in the dark. Whether you are at fruition or a starting-over point, Jupiter into Libra helps you make the most of it. Sunday is optimal. Monday/Tuesday, be proactive, not reactive.

      January 20 - February 18

      Mercury retrograde can prompt a rethink of finances, a recent purchase, or a relationship involvement. Once it’s said, you can’t take it back. Some things are meant to be. Jupiter into Libra, starting Friday, brings fresh opportunity where you’ll appreciate it the most. Monday/Tuesday there are talks to have and things to try, confront, or straighten out.

      February 18 - March 20

      The end of the workweek finds you on emotional buildup or under added pressure. By Sunday, you should feel you have a much better grip. Monday’s optimum for talks and meet-ups. Tuesday, jump on it. Wednesday, carry on. Jupiter into Libra improves communication and cooperation with a significant other or key someone. It benefits finances and romance, too.
