What does the forecast look like this week? Only one way to find out…
September 23–October 22
Your ruling planet, Venus, dances into your thinking-and-talking corner this week, inspiring you to express your affection for people, soak in positive feelings in your encounters and notice beauty in your everyday environment. A Mars-Pluto rendezvous at the bottom of your chart can bring very turbulent emotions, so pay attention to what’s going on inside you. You might use this energy to tackle a big project at home, as you have the power to transform your space now. It’s also a good time to work through difficult feelings or memories in an effort to change and heal. Mercury in Libra is facing off against Uranus, which could result in a surprising conversation and perhaps a blunt disagreement. Express your point of view, and allow others to do the same; you don’t need to see eye-to-eye. With the sun segueing into your worth zone, part of your focus will shift to finances, possessions, assets, values and resources in the coming weeks.
October 23–November 21
With Venus moving into your worth house this week, you’ll become more interested in acquiring money and possessions and drawing in what you need and want. Your tastes may exceed your budget, and careful spending is advisable. Your co-ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, are joining forces in your cognition-and-communication corner, lending extra force to your thoughts and words. Listen to yourself, as you may sound harsher than you intend. Channel this energy to transform your habitual mindset, change something in your environment, speak powerfully on a topic you’re passionate about or take a trip. Mercury’s face off with Uranus implies that doing mental work by yourself can feel exhilarating, although you’ll probably get distracted at some point. As the sun arrives in your sign for its annual month-long stay, your vitality surges and you’ll have the ability to make a strong impression. Go ahead and focus on yourself for a while, and consider where you see yourself headed in the coming year. Happy birthday!
November 22–December 21
Venus lands in Sagittarius this week, lending you an extra dose of charm and making you feel more sociable and attractive. You’ll be able to draw in what you desire and get along well with other people in the coming weeks. A Mars-Pluto conjunction in your worth zone can lead you to seek greater control over your money, but it could also spell a destructive financial move, so be careful. This might be a good time to attempt a big project related to your possessions, especially if it entails getting rid of stuff. Mercury in your network house is opposing Uranus in your fulfillment sector, hinting that you might disagree with friends and go off in your own direction. Your attitude toward a group may change now. The sun’s arrival in the last house of your chart signals that your year is drawing to a close, and you should give yourself more downtime to rest and reflect.
December 22–January 19
As Venus moves into the last house of your chart this week, you may feel a desire to take care of someone, make a sacrifice for a loved one or spend more time by yourself. Mars and Pluto are joining forces in Capricorn, mobilizing you to do something major, but you need to be aware of how intense your energy is so you don’t bulldoze over other people without noticing the effect you’re having. Use your impressive personal power as a force for positive change in the world or as a means of transforming yourself. Resist trying to control anyone, and avoid doing damage. A Mercury-Uranus opposition can disrupt career plans and communication with authority figures, and the disruption may be due to erratic emotions or circumstances at home or in your family. The sun’s move into your group sector inspires you to consider your role in others’ lives — and theirs in yours — and to examine your various affiliations, engaging in cooperative efforts when possible.
January 20–February 18
With Venus entering your humanity house this week, you’ll enjoy being around a lot of people, and time with friends will be even more gratifying than usual. Group gatherings, including parties and professional networking events, are apt to go well. Mars and Pluto are linking up in the last house of your chart, though, pushing you to also deal with something troubling in your psyche instead of sweeping it under the rug. Failing to tune into what’s going on inside you could lead to unconsciously regressive, destructive behavior. To avoid shooting yourself in the foot, spend time alone confronting an inner demon or becoming absorbed in a demanding project. A Mercury-Uranus faceoff can shift your perspective, so keep an open mind. With the sun ascending to your ambition angle, you should maintain a higher profile in the coming weeks. Focus on your goals and career, and be prepared to shine, showing what you’re capable of and possibly taking on a leadership role.
February 19–March 20
As Venus climbs to the pinnacle of your chart this week, your ability to do creative work and get along well with authority figures increases. People who can give you a leg up are apt to be favorably inclined toward you in the coming weeks, so start showing what you can do. A Mars-Pluto conjunction in your network sector could bring a power struggle in a group and might even damage a friendship. You could opt to channel this intense energy into a philanthropic endeavor or a group project with a potentially far-reaching effect. A Mercury-Uranus opposition can disrupt a dialogue with someone close to you, especially if your confidence wavers or you feel the urge to be independent and self-sufficient. With the sun entering your exploration corner, you’re inspired to broaden your horizons by taking a trip, beginning a new course of study, having new experiences and meeting a wide range of people who can expand your worldview.
March 21–April 19
After Venus segues into your exploration corner this week, the appeal of new people and unfamiliar experiences grows, and your appetite for adventure is likely to be stimulated. Exposing yourself to a broad range of culture and humanity will give you pleasure, and you might be drawn to someone different from you. Mars meets up with Pluto in your ambition angle this week as well, amplifying your determination to pursue your goals. This planetary combo may cause you to come on strong with higher ups, so be mindful of how hard you’re pushing and who’s apt to notice. Working very hard on something independently can yield results. A Mercury-Uranus faceoff might indicate a disruption in communication, and you could express impatience when speaking with someone. The sun’s entry into your sharing sector nudges you to focus on close relationships, investing time and energy in connections that you care about. You’re also encouraged to delve into your own psyche and make a positive change.
April 20–May 20
Venus segues into your sharing sector this week, increasing a craving for closeness and possibly stimulating the sexual side of a relationship. Affection is apt to be intense, not casual. With the sun crossing your one-on-one angle, you won’t be inclined to go it alone in the coming weeks. Seek out the company of other individuals, and notice the role you play in your interactions. Consider how well you fulfill each other’s needs in your close connections, and strive to foster healthy bonds. With Mars and Pluto coming together in your exploration zone, you could feel compelled to fight for your beliefs, and this would be a good time to work hard to change something in the world. Don’t force your views on others, but do direct your will toward a just cause. You might opt to travel or devote energy to studying a challenging subject. A new experience is likely to be powerful and can shift your perspective noticeably.
May 21–June 20
When Venus crosses your others angle this week, you’ll start to feel quite agreeable and able to balance your desires with those of other individuals. You’ll be in the mood to socialize one-on-one and to express your affection for people close to you. But with Mars and Pluto rendezvousing in your depth sector, a particular connection could become very intense, for better or for worse. Your sexuality is emphasized by this planetary combination, and if you form a new bond now, it’s apt to be a powerful one. If you don’t have a partner, this is a fortuitous time to work through a psychological issue and transform your emotions, perhaps recovering from a crisis or healing a wound. A Mercury-Uranus opposition hints at unpredictable self-expression involving friends or a group. And the sun’s arrival in your efficiency corner coaxes you to exert energy tackling your job and your to-do list and improving your health and your everyday functioning.
June 21–July 22
Venus segues into your productivity corner this week, highlighting the importance of working on your relationships and enjoying simple, everyday pleasures. Remind yourself to value your health and to appreciate being useful. When Mars and Pluto join forces in your one-on-one angle, you may experience a conflict with another individual, and a power struggle is to be expected. A relationship crisis is possible, and it could be time for major change. You might opt to partner with someone in a taxing but worthwhile endeavor now. Try not to overreact to intense, potentially destructive energy coming at you from other people. Recognize your own role in your interactions. A Mercury-Uranus faceoff can trigger worries about where you’re headed in your career or in life, but the sun’s arrival in your happiness zone coaxes you to enjoy life more, expressing your personality and your feelings and making time for play and creative expression. Romance, fun and personal fulfillment are all emphasized in the next month.
July 23–August 22
With Venus moving into your joy sector this week, it’s time to have more fun. Personal fulfillment takes priority, and you’re inspired to express your personality, your creativity and what’s in your heart. Romance and affection are highly favored in the coming weeks, and you’ll have an easy time getting along with loved ones. Your ruler, the sun, is descending to the bottom of your chart, though, making you want to stay in a bit and enjoy the comforts of home and family. You might opt to combine play and domesticity by entertaining more in the coming weeks. Try to make your peace with the past and enjoy life in the moment. Mars and Pluto meet up in your productivity corner, possibly generating a job crisis or health crisis. But this energy can also be used for very challenging work and self-improvement. Do something to enhance your wellbeing or everyday life, and sidestep conflicts with coworkers if possible.
August 23–September 22
As Venus dips down to the foundation of your chart this week, you’ll begin to enjoy the pleasures of domesticity more, and you might feel a desire to spend time with family. You may crave peace and quiet or get into a mood to redecorate or play hostess. Cooking, baking, eating, imbibing and entertaining are likely to be extra gratifying, and you could be tempted to overdo it. A Mars-Pluto meetup in your joy house may intensify a love affair or give you an overwhelming urge to play. You want what you want now and are determined to go after it. Taking a big risk could be impossible to resist. With the sun segueing into your thinking-and-talking corner, self-expression is favored, and your brain and daily life will seem energized. Mercury’s faceoff with Uranus might spell surprising results if you ask for what you need. You may disagree over shared values or resources, so try to be flexible.
