Your Weekly Horoscopes: September 4 to 10, 2022

This week is all about momentum. Seeds planted back at the new moon in Virgo on August 27th are coming into bloom. On the 5th, connection planet Venus dips into Virgo where she shows her love through acts of service. Though Venus is technically in her fall (at a disadvantage or against the status quo) in Virgo, this usually manifests as someone who is willing to go the extra mile to achieve great beauty. Just ask Kim Kardashian who has this placement in her birth chart. Venus in Virgo has high standards and won’t settle for anything less than what she deserves.

Then on the 9th, Mercury stations retrograde in Libra, putting even more emphasis on our relationships. Sometimes pushing forward isn’t the answer, and you must go back instead. The full moon in Pisces on the 10th helps you tap into your intuition as you navigate important conversations with the people you love.

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

Virgo season has been all about work and getting back into routines, but this week, you’re pulled to spend some time off the grid. The full moon in Pisces on the 10th falls in your unconscious sector, and might be the sweetest moment you have all year to take a retreat, alone or with your partner (especially because Mercury retrograde, which starts on the 9th, has you focused on one-on-one relationships). Get out of the city, if only for a day.

This week’s mantra: “It can wait until I’m back.”

The full moon in Pisces on the 10th is the hottest time of the year for your social life. Invitations are coming in left and right for gatherings, art openings, and of course, all the usual fall wedding season madness. Though things are a bit chaotic at work (Thanks, Mercury retrograde!), you’re still having a lot of fun. What makes this week extra special is the chance to introduce that new person you’re dating to your closest friends.

This week’s mantra: “It’s not easy being popular.”

Your ruling planet Mercury also stations retrograde this week (from the 9th) encouraging you to revisit old creative projects and spend more time with your kids.

This week’s mantra: “Success isn’t everything, but it does feel good.”

Whether you’re starting grad school, taking a vacation or hitting a milestone in your spiritual practice (100 straight days of meditation isn’t anything to sneeze at!), the full moon in Pisces on the 10th highlights a commitment you’ve made to expanding your mind. Mercury retrograde (from the 9th) and Venus’ shift into Virgo (from the 5th) is also pulling you to reconnect with family, neighbors and close friends through shared educational and intellectual pursuits.

The full moon in Pisces on the 10th brings you some much needed financial relief. It feels amazing to finally pay off that car loan or that debilitating credit card debt that’s been haunting you for years. You may also get good news about a grant, inheritance or investment. Because Mercury stations retrograde this week too (from the 9th), be patient with communications, especially around finances. Things might be slow, but it all works out in time.

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

(August 23 - September 23)

This week’s full moon in Pisces on the 10th is a lovely moment to sit with the gratitude you feel for the most important people in your life. Sure, it’s not your anniversary, but who says you and your partner can’t celebrate just because? Venus moves into your sign on the 5th so this is also a great week for self care. A haircut, a mani/pedi and that jelly facial you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to splurge on should all be added to the agenda.

This week’s mantra: “I’m grateful for the people who light me up.”

Though you’re usually the queen of FOMO, Virgo season is actually your most MIA time of the year. The full moon in Pisces on the 10th though pulls you back into reality. You’re busier than normal this week: volunteering, running around to activities with kids or handling a minor crisis at work with your usual balance and grace. As communication planet Mercury stations retrograde in your sign (from the 9th), it’s important to choose your words carefully as you jump back into daily routines.

This week’s mantra: “I’m calm, cool and collected.”

The full moon in Pisces on the 10th lights up your personal income and resources sector. This week could bring a major boon to your cash flow, a promotion at work or relief on some monthly bills. Now that you have more confidence in your abundance, how can you upgrade the stuff you use everyday to better suit your lifestyle? Would you be happier with a larger television? A better home audio system? A fall jacket that isn’t falling apart? Invest in pieces that will be around for the long haul.

It’s not your season, but this week’s full moon on the 10th is in your sign, making this a moment to celebrate yourself! Love planet Venus enters Virgo and your partnership sector on the 5th and you’re tempted to spend the entire week celebrating with your spouse, BFF or work bestie. Just be careful not to overspend as Mercury goes retrograde in your shared resources sector on the 9th, forcing you to revisit some past due bills or debts.

This week’s mantra: “It’s a joy to celebrate myself everyday.”
