Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 11 to 17, 2022

Expectations are broken as the sun connects with innovative Uranus on the 11th. Just because you’re supposed to do something one way doesn’t mean that’s the only way to do it. Mercury’s still retrograde so it’s best to take the time to consider all possible paths before moving ahead. Relationships of all kinds come under pressure on the 16th when love planet Venus squares off with Mars—an aspect that brings issues or tensions that first came up back in early March to a breaking or resolution point. On the same day, the sun faces off with Neptune (an aspect found in the chart of enigmatic celebs like Cate Blanchett and George Clooney), putting a dreamy or possibly overwhelming spin on the day. Things that come up now may not be the full truth so wait for the rest of the story to be revealed.

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