Your Weekly Horoscopes: August 28 to September 3, 2022

It’s already September! This week brings a calm to the astrological storm that has been 2022. After an overwhelming spring and a tense summer, we now have a chance to review what’s happened and to integrate the lessons learned thus far. 

Commitments are made and broken as Venus opposes disciplined Saturn on the 28th. Then on the 1st, Mars connects with Jupiter, bringing something that was initiated back on May 29th (when Mars and Jupiter last connected) into focus to remind us how far we’ve come since then. Our forward movement is especially clear by the 2nd when Mercury faces off with Jupiter bringing a soaring sense of optimism to our ideas and communications. 

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

3 Signs That Can Read You Like a Book


Cheeky illustrations of a girl of color in a purple shirt and overalls with a baby ram over her shoulders. She is smiling and so is the ram. The overall color is purple—purple background, pink ram with purple horns and the girls is wearing a purple shirt. Her hair is in a messy bun.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Whether you’re planning a bachelorette weekend, a getaway road trip or a community event to celebrate the end of summer, you’re extremely busy this week. You’re knee deep in emails and you might as well be getting a paycheck from Paperless Post for how many invitations you’re sending out. If you’re feeling burnt out, remember that it’s your enthusiasm that’s keeping the plans rolling so take a break if you need. After this week, you’ll find more people to help out with the details.

This week’s mantra: “Just keep swimming!”

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

A home improvement project that you’ve been powering through for the last few weeks gets stalled when your contractor runs into a supply chain issue leaving your half tiled bathroom a total mess. Though this is an inconvenience, the pause gives you time to re-evaluate what you really want for the space so you don't have home reno regrets. Maybe the work doesn’t have to be quite so complicated. This also gives you a chance to get caught up on your real work which you’ve been low key ignoring since the home improvements began.

This week’s mantra: “Back to basics.”

Cheeky illustration of identical twins with long dark hair and a statement earrings back-to-back, smirking at each other.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Though you just met your new person on Hinge a few weeks ago, you’re feeling totally smitten. If he proposed to you tomorrow, you’d probably say yes. But in the meantime, while you wait for that ring, you’re ready to meet his friends. The opportunity arises for you to hang out with a larger social circle together on the 2nd. It’s nerve wracking to further integrate your lives, but isn’t this exactly what you wanted?

This week’s mantra: “Relationships grow through actions.”

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Your confidence has been growing rapidly since optimistic Jupiter entered Aries back in May. Job offers, promotions and accolades have been abundant. And while it’s nice to be recognized, you’ve also been feeling a bit overwhelmed, wondering where the best place is to channel your energy. On the 2nd, you have a chance to work out the details so you can better integrate these huge opportunities into your daily life. Things are coming together!

This week’s mantra: “Patience, patience, patience!”

Cheeky illustration of a woman of Asian-descent wearing a sheer coral top with her hair half-up in pigtail puns, the rest down. She is hugging a lion, who is smirking.

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)

This week is all about maintenance for you, Leo. Especially when it comes to your beauty. On the 28th, you get to soak in a salt bath, deep condition your hair or spend some extra time on your skincare routine. Maybe it’s finally time to switch to that retinol brand your friend has been recommending! Though this week could also bring some difficult moments in your closest relationships, remember that what’s meant to last will be there for the long game. In the meantime, take care of your skin!

This week’s mantra: “Discipline is magic.”

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)

Do you want money to keep causing problems in your closest relationships? Both you and your partner (business, romantic or otherwise) have been busy lately, working on your own goals. But in order to grow—both individually and as a couple—you’re going to have to combine your resources. There’s a lovely window of  opportunity to have an open discussion about finances on the 2nd as your ruling planet Mercury opposes positive Jupiter. Think about what you want rather than what you lack.

This week’s mantra: “Money flows to me.”

Libra (September 23 - October 21)

This was the summer of getting your groove back, Libra. Both your social life and romantic prospects have grown tenfold. But with that growth comes a necessary pruning. Maybe it’s time to call things off with that girl you’ve been dating who’s fun but not the one. Or perhaps you’re ready to quit that book club that you were only going to because there was nothing else better to do. What feels like a difficult or painful decision on the 28th is a massive relief by the 2nd.

This week’s mantra: “Less is more.”

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

This is the week to finally face that intimidating pile of paperwork that’s been collecting on your desk since the end of May. Set aside some time on the 1st to open all your mail and send those emails you’ve been avoiding. This is also a great moment to schedule some doctors’ appointments, recalibrate your fitness routine or squeeze in a date with your acupuncturist. It’s not easy to get it all done at once, but you’ll be so much more at ease with a clean slate and a clear mind.

This week’s mantra: “I’m ready to release.”

Cheeky illustration of a Black woman with purple hair on an orange background. She's in a wearing jean jacket, with a quiver strapped across her back and arrows sticking out.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

You’ve been spending so much time with your kids all summer that you’ve almost forgotten what it’s like to hang out with people your own age. On the 2nd though, a huge community gathering offers you the opportunity to leave the kids with a babysitter and get back in touch with your friends. You’ve missed laughing at jokes meant for adults! Now the question is how can you make sure you have quality time with both the little ones and the real ones in your day to day life?

This week’s mantra: “Anything can be an adventure.”

A cheeky image of a woman of color with dark hair holding a pink goat by the horns. The background is pink and her shirt is darker pink.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

What has mostly felt like thankless work–both at home and in terms of your career—finally feels like it’s going somewhere this week! Whether you’re progressing with job interviews, expanding a small business or finally feeling settled in your new home, the details are finally matching the vision. That said, now that you’re getting closer to accomplishing what you initially set out to do, it’s time to dream even bigger. On the 2nd, take some time to reflect on where you are now and where you’d like to be in six months.

This week’s mantra: “I dream bigger and bigger.”

Cheeky image of a Black woman with blue hair on a light blue background. She's holding blue water in her palms, which is bubbling up and taking shape as her hair.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

This week is all about reconciliation for you, Aquarius. In fact on the 28th, you find yourself at an impromptu coffee date with an ex who you thought you’d never speak to again. You’re tempted to see if there’s still any chemistry between the two of you, but before you get ahead of yourself, you instead decide to maintain your boundaries. You can chat sometimes, but you don’t need to be intimate with someone who no longer makes sense in your life. This is a week for drawing lines in the sand and finding peace in solitude.

This week’s mantra: “I’m OK on my own.”

Cheeky illustration of a gender-fluid white person with short-cropped orange hair. They're wearing a light blue halter top as two bright pink koi fish circle their head.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Though you’re usually more of the dreamer than the planner, this week finds you taking the lead with all kinds of heavy topics in your partnership(s). You’re scheduling couple’s therapy, making budget spreadsheets for next quarter to present to your business partner and helping your BFF through a breakup. You’ll have to revisit these topics when Mercury goes retrograde later in September so it’s a good idea to set the tone on your terms now. Take the lead!

This week’s mantra: “I know what I’m doing.”
