Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 10 to 16, 2023

This is a week of open-minded new beginnings. Since Mercury stationed retrograde on August 23rd, we’ve been going through a much-needed systems review: reorganizing, adjusting and getting things in order. Mercury retrograde ends on the 15th signaling an end to the review period and allowing us to (slowly) get on with our lives. The new moon in Virgo on the 14th affirms that these adjustments were in fact worth it. Use this new moon to set intentions while remaining open to new ideas.

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