Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 1 to 7, 2019
There will be no shortage of ideas this week. Inspiration abounds, but is it compelling you in the right direction or is it all just smoke and mirrors? On the 2nd and 3rd, first Mars, then Mercury in his power hour in Virgo, land in the heart of the sun, and something clicks. We finally have the words to articulate our grand scheme. Don’t miss the opportunity to write it on the walls.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
As your birthday season continues, all eyes are on you. As someone who prefers to help out behind the scenes, it may feel awkward to be in the spotlight, but don’t miss the opportunity to make a statement. On the 3rd, you have something major to say so be sure to publish the blog, send the email and debut your fresh fall style on Instagram. Yes, it may feel indulgent (or even obnoxious) to share, but you inspire others with your particular vision.
You have been blissfully off the grid: fine-tuning your ability to do nothing and decluttering your digital life. This week, your meditation skills are put to the test as it becomes impossible to remain completely remote. Exciting opportunities are coming up in your community and an overwhelming work situation can no longer be ignored. You can tend to the tasks at hand with a soft focus, though. Remember that it’s OK to do your part and also to walk away.
Things are changing in your professional life and as you gain a new mentor, you gain a whole new community. This shift is welcome and long overdue, but all of the networking is exhausting. Ground yourself in your routines and those who know you best. Just because you are spending happy hour on a roof deck with a view doesn’t mean you can’t also grab coffee before Pilates with an old friend. Where you have been tells the story of where you are going.
You are getting comfortable with your relationship to power. Whether it’s a deserved promotion at work, leading a community effort to reduce plastic waste or directing the fall play at your daughter’s school, your public life is productive but stressful. Try not to focus on how you look, and instead, be thoughtful with your actions. Take extra precaution on the 3rd to lead with grace. Everyone wants to see you succeed.
Knowledge is infinite. There is so much that you don’t know: so many places to explore, languages to study and ways of life to discover. The unknown is certainly alluring, but practicing magic is more effective if you have clear intentions. Whether you meditate, go to church or collect crystals, spend time with a familiar spiritual habit this week. On the 3rd, more certain about what you know, you can be the teacher who someone else needs to hear.
A collaborative project—whether it’s launching a casual pay-what-you-can supper club with your BFF, buying a house with your fiancé or training your replacement at the office—is running you ragged this week. Don’t run away with your other friends or indulge in solo retail therapy to ease the pain. Remember, you aren’t in this alone and your partner is stressed, too. Share your worries, and on the 3rd, hatch a plan together to calm your nerves.
Though you have been avoiding it, it’s time for your girlfriend to meet your friends. You have such a strong connection, but how does she fit into the rest of your life? No one’s feelings toward you will change after this meeting, so what are you actually afraid of? Will she embarrass you in front of them? Or will she reveal something you already know about your less-than-stellar social group? Spend some time this week considering whose opinion matters.
Keep minding the details, dear Aries. For someone as impulsive as you, going back to check something off the to-do list seems like a waste of valuable time, but think of the action as record keeping. Notate which days you water the plants and which days you follow up on emails. Recognition comes this week for the hard work you have put in already. Let your boss buy you lunch, but remember that, really, you did this for yourself.
Don’t wait for someone else to take you on the perfect date. Whether you’re suffering bed death with your long-term honey, aggressively single on the apps, or Netflix and chilling with your cat, you deserve a night out, and you deserve it just the way you like. On the 3rd, be bold and invite someone along for the ride, or be bolder and fly solo. You’re radiant when you fulfill your own needs. You never know who might buy you a drink.
Let’s be real: Cultivating a fulfilling private life is hard work. Where are you truly comfortable? This week, you’re tempted to stray from your journey inward and focus instead on a mysterious stranger or nebulous office drama. Yes, it’s been difficult and you have cabin fever, but don’t give up yet. Keep asking yourself the hard questions, and by the 3rd, you will uncover one of your own best kept secrets.
Your daily schedule is in desperate need of maintenance. Yes, there’s a lot going on: your college roommate is sleeping on your couch, your car is making a weird noise and your favorite coffee shop no longer offers free Wi-Fi. Resist getting lost in a daydream about escaping to a new life upstate and tend to the matters at hand. On the 3rd, get your oil changed before you drive into the sunset. Remember: You are not the chaos that surrounds you.
Just because the money is in your bank account doesn’t mean you have to spend it. Get-rich-quick schemes have been on your mind and much to your delight: you are meeting your financial goals faster than anticipated. Instead of using a new client’s deposit to immediately book an expensive gel manicure or vampire facial at the spa, take care of yourself with supplies you already have. There is so much pleasure in painting your own nails and pouring your own salt bath.
