Horoscope for the Week: September 24, 2021
Tip of the Week:
The last season of the year, the final quarter, has begun. 2021 has already been eventful and dramatic but it is quite possible that the next three months will make the previous 9 seem like the three periods leading to overtime in the playoffs. And yet it will also prove disrupting and confusing especially as we progress through October and following the culminating New Moon in Libra that occurs on October 6. Metaphorically, imagine you were at a very large indoor gathering and it is very dark outside and suddenly the lights go out completely for several minutes and then, just as suddenly, turn on again with all the flood lights as well causing something of a blinding, startling effect disrupting your entire mindset, perception and attitude prior to the event. Add to this that something significant that was in the room prior, like the head table, was no longer there. It will be interesting to see how this metaphor manifests as various outer synchronicities. P.S. Mercury Retrograde: September27 – October 19.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
The Sun in Libra will activate your desires and this should already be evident. Managing this burst of passion and drive will require extra effort. In some respects you will not want to, while in others, you may not be able to. Striking the middle ground, you could impress yourself and others with diplomatic charm and subtlety.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Venus in Scorpio will wet your whistle even more this week than since it entered a couple of weeks ago. You will work diligently to fulfill your desires thanks to the Sun, Mercury and Mars in Libra. Mercury there will already increase your critical thinking faculties yet will also support you to exercise refinement and grace in your communications.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
You have entered a creative and expansive cycle. It could inspire you to feel more playful, romantic and adventurous. On the other hand, you may also dive into a creative project. Just be aware that, either way, you may be asked to give more than you want. Meanwhile, new perspectives may change your attitude towards certain people.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
A busy time close to home continues. Cleaning, clearing and purging all for the sake of beautifying and establishing a new flow and state of harmony are central themes. This focus could be directed at yourself or family members, as well, and not necessarily to the outer environment. Either way, you aim to get to the bottom of things.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Your mind is extra busy of late. You yearn to learn, know and understand. A commitment to being awake and aware is part of the plot. You are also motivated for the sake of expansion publically and professionally. Yet, it is likely that achieving your larger goal will take time, years even. Paying your dues is part of the plot. Focus to enjoy the process.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Focusing to ground and establish what began weeks ago is now in focus. This can also be understood as digesting and assimilating knowledge ingested. And then there is the elimination process which includes clearing the way for new rounds. The learning curve will also continue steadily for some time and is pushing you to integration.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You continue to forge ahead taking new leads and strides. With Mercury in slow motion ready to turn retrograde this week, your focus will get sharper. Positively, you will activate a healthy skepticism, willing to question beliefs, perceptions and interpretations, both your own and those of others. Replacing fears of loss with commitment to truth is your power key.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A period of retreat continues. It may not be total, but the lean towards less exposure is there. You could be busy doing inner work to address subconscious fears and doubts. Or, you might simply want to escape. Yet, there is also an expressive side that wants to come out. Together, these could produce artistry. Yet, you must face your fears to claim your gifts.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
A stronger sense of individuality than usual is running through your being. Themes of fairness and justice are strongly featured. Beyond ethics, security concerns are also playing a major role. Your own security and that of others in general, but especially that of your family is strongly felt. Compassionate feelings vie with frustration and rebellion.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The time has come to make your desires known. This includes a push for leadership. You want the recognition you feel you want, deserve and have earned. A process of building upon more solid foundations has been underway all year. This process will continue for some time yet. Investments of various kinds are central to the plot.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
You find yourself in a philosophical mood. However, thoughts are not enough at this time and you feel motivated to take more deliberate action. To this end, you are in search of the specific tools and methods required to achieve your goals. To this end, you will likely reach for several options and aim to approach the situation from multiple angles.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
An inner process of change and transformation continues and deepens. Handling these complex forces gracefully and successfully will require awareness, wisdom and will power. The thing to understand is that the process will last for several weeks. If you handle it successfully, you will emerge renewed and empowered.
