Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 3 to 9, 2023

We won’t say no to a week of good vibes

Welcome to September! This month contains some of 2023’s best astrology and the sweetness kicks off this week! First Venus stations retrograde on the 3rd concluding this summer’s constant creative blocks, complex love affairs and unflattering haircuts. Jupiter stations retrograde the next day squaring off with Venus. For the rest of the month, the planet of love and planet of growth remain in conversation, egging each other on and encouraging indulgence, spending and overall good vibes.

Mercury is still retrograde but connects with Jupiter on the 4th and then the sun on the 6th bringing expansive ideas and needed breakthroughs. The sun makes a supportive trine to Jupiter on the 8th bringing more good luck, confidence and enthusiasm to go around.

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

Your Monthly Horoscopes: September 2023

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

The end of Venus retrograde on the 3rd brings an end to your tour-of-ex flings and situationships. The stories you’ve collected would make a delicious screenplay or novel, and in fact, you should turn your attention to those creative ideas rather than trying to hookup with a ghost.

This week’s mantra: “Make it into art!”


(April 20 - May 20)

Venus and Jupiter stationing in tandem on the 3rd and 4th brings you both a huge sense of relief and an even greater boost of self-confidence. After many weeks caught in a bit of a nostalgia spiral (or literally stuck at home), you have a new lease on life and are ready to face the future.

This week’s mantra: “Forget the past.”


(May 21 - June 20)

You thought it was lost forever but as Mercury meets the sun on the 6th, you find your missing ring! It was stuffed into the couch cushion this whole time. Though this might seem like a minor victory to some, it’s a huge win for you. Enjoy the feeling of having it all together.

This week’s mantra: “I’m in control.”


(June 21 - July 22)

After months of nothing but hard work, financial relief and career opportunities finally come your way this week. Mercury retrograde is still hitting you harder than most so be mindful of delays and miscommunications as you accept offers and relay the good news. Don’t worry about the typos though—they’re part of your charm!

This week’s mantra: “Spread the news.”


(July 23 - Aug 22)

Venus stations direct in your sign on the 3rd meaning it’s finally time to click buy on that outfit for your cousin’s wedding, schedule a manicure and get a fresh haircut. Though this summer’s Venus retrograde helped you reconnect with yourself, your style has been struggling. From here on out though, you’re only getting hotter.

This week’s mantra: “Strike a pose.”


(August 23 - September 23)

It’s not your imagination: this month’s Mercury retrograde is extremely personal for you. Typos and train delays and texting faux pas are not your usual but have become your norm. You’re going through these pauses and reviews for a reason though and clarity as to why arrives on the 6th as Mercury meets the sun.

This week’s mantra: “Double check it.”


(September 23 - October 21)

Venus stations direct on the 3rd allowing you to take a heavy exhale and release the social tension you’ve been holding in your body for almost two months now. Venus retrograde has brought you closer to some friends and distanced you from others, but now you get to shake off any guilt and enjoy a less burdened social life.

This week’s mantra: “Shake it off.”


(October 22 - November 21)

Career momentum speeds up while relationship momentum off ramps this week. You can’t help but feel like these two parts of your life are in constant conversation. You’re seeking more everyday balance rather than a constant shuffle, and it will come. But first you need to take a step back and meditate on your priorities.

This week’s mantra: “Bird’s eye view.”


(November 22 - December 21)

After a summer of travel, study and exploration, it’s time to slow down and focus on your work and daily routines. Your ruling planet Jupiter stations retrograde in the part of your chart that deals with the things we must do, not what we want to do. How can you incorporate all of summer’s new ideas into your daily life?

This week’s mantra: “The lesson continues.”


(December 22 - January 19)

A weight that’s been hanging heavy on your heart all summer gets lifted as Venus stations direct on the 3rd. This month you get to focus on the pleasure-filled side of sharing a life with someone rather than the intense and vulnerable one. Incorporating joy into your everyday life is the goal.

This week’s mantra: “Easy/lucky/free.”


(January 20 - February 18)

Venus and Jupiter station in tandem on the 3rd and 4th stirring up optimism about both your living situation and romantic life. The prospect of moving in with your partner isn’t just about saving money on rent. It’s about taking this important next step together. You don’t have to romanticize it, but you can also accept that life should be romantic.

This week’s mantra: “Romance is everything.”


(February 19 - March 20)

Though you’re still shaking off the heavy feeling of last week’s full moon in your sign, you can’t help but feel proud of how far you’ve come. This isn’t about huge career accomplishments or relationship milestones, but about your ability to get a handle on the day-to-day happenings of your life. You won’t always be thrilled to get out of bed, but this week, you really are.

This week’s mantra: “Life is good.”
