Horoscope for the Week: September 30, 2022

Tip of the Week:

The September 25 Libra New Moon (2 Libra 48) is now waxing towards its First Quarter phase, manifesting as a beautiful half moon on October 2. As lovely as this image is, it means the Moon has arrived at its 90-degree angle (square aspect) from the Sun. The general interpretation for the square is that the energies of the planets are at ‘cross purposes’ and tend to manifest as tension and conflict. More specifically, the conscious awareness principle of the Sun is in contrast or conflict with the emotional flow that the Moon symbolizes. Positively, the Libra Sun and Capricorn Moon (both Cardinal signs =king) are suggestive of practical dynamics, like a busy day at the market – often exciting and fun, but hectic… Venus in Libra meanwhile will help smooth things out especially with it in its own ruling sign (= ‘honor’).  Also, on October 2, Mercury stations (appears to stop) and resumes direct motion again while in critical thinking Virgo, its own ruling sign as well.


Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Who and what do you love and why? Beyond notions of free will choice, your destiny is a strong determining factor. You can simply enjoy the feeling, which will manifest as uplifting moods, or you can better understand why, which can prove valuable as well. Who are you beyond simply answering with ‘me’?

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

A creative cycle asks you to give more than you might want to now. Although your energy levels are probably running high, taking things slow but sure, Taurus, style, is also likely. Focusing to stretch your mind and imagination is featured and could prove more valuable, and liberating than outer constructions.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A playful, romantic and frolicking mood vies with a more practical inclination. This more serious side can be best engaged as a fall clean-up. Decorating to align with the seasonal celebration of colors could strike the golden mean between the fun and function currently tugging on your mind.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Libra time is one when achieving a better balance between the responsibilities of jobs and career and home and family is pronounced. It comes down to assessing where your focus has been leaning over the past several weeks and months. Although it is an expansive time in your outer life, assess the balance.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Libra time emphasizes a sharpening of your mind. This includes what and how you perceive and interpret the world. Would you say you see reality as it is? Actually, we each see reality much more fully ‘as we are’. This refers to our nature, personality and social conditioning. Avoid assumptions and acknowledge your biases.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

Establishing a more solid base of values and priorities is emphasized now. Ideally, some of your focus includes thinking with your heart and feeling with your mind. Not to be mistaken with your beliefs, the emphasis on your heart is towards deciphering what you deem your truth.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A steady shift of pace to a more expressive phase has begun. You want to see, be and engage with beauty. This projection will likely include social and perhaps even romantic engagements. Behind the diplomacy, your critical faculties will remain fully operative, yet you will gladly leave them out to keep the peace.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Turning within to your inner light feels important now. The simplest way to do so is to focus on your heart center, which is actually your higher mind. You can simply dwell there peacefully, wherever you are. Or, you can engage in conversation. Begin with deep gratitude, then ask if you need help, then open to receive.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Thoughts of freedom and what is right, true and just are stronger on your mind than usual. You yearn to express yourself fully but may feel restricted somehow. This condition might last a little longer but will soon change. In the meantime, focus to do some background study to prepare.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

As eager as you may feel to be seen, heard, and acknowledged for your efforts, you may feel a little lost for words. Many thoughts and emotions flowing through your mind all vying for attention may be the issue. It might help to write them down to get clearer. Your ability to concentrate will increase steadily this week.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Venus now in Libra joining forces with the Sun will lift your spirits. The same is true of Mercury turning direct. It has had the effect of dividing your focus between outer engagement and diving deep into your thoughts about larger realities. Enjoy this opening and take a break from serious matters.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

A cycle of transformation of your perspectives and attitude continues. Giving more even than usual is part of the plot. Positively, you recognize that in giving you receive as it serves to put you in your heart. Be there with and for others as much as you can. You will re-enter a creative cycle again soon.
