Weekly Horoscope: September 14-20, 2020
On Monday, the sun in methodical Virgo will form a trine with shadowy Pluto in Capricorn. This is a powerful time for regeneration, as something could remind us that there is always plenty under the hood we still need to work with. Committing to shadow work isn’t for the faint of heart, but we’re deep in the process of rebuilding this year. The collective urge towards transformation is strong and more than ever, we’ve been diving deep. We can grow by excavating and working with our unconscious material when it presents itself, instead of keeping it hidden below the surface. Because Pluto is involved, what we see might not be pretty, but looking away will not be an option.
On Tuesday, Venus in super extra Leo makes a square (creates tension) to Uranus in steady Taurus, testing our relationships in a big way. Egos could take a hit as issues around loyalty could come up. If you have been going back and forth about creating stability or maintaining your freedom, it’s likely that a swift decision will be made. If you’ve been stuck at the crossroads of an interpersonal impasse, this aspect is likely to create action where there was stuck energy before.
Later on, we have an exciting new moon in Virgo on Thursday, asking us to set the foundation for what we’d like to build over the next few years. This new moon is making a trine to Saturn in Capricorn, pushing us to implement new structures or boundaries and plan for the long term. We’re more inspired to move methodically and set intentions around our future success. Virgo is about the day-to-day details and Capricorn has its sights set high.
The planetary ruler of this lunation is Mercury in graceful Libra, which is currently making a square to the now direct Jupiter in Capricorn. For this reason, maintaining a balance between details and the bigger picture is key here. The way we make broad, sweeping changes for the future is by doing the work one day at a time. This is a potent new moon for business deals and setting our sights high, just be conscious not to overpromise and underdeliver.
The next day, the moon and Mercury form a quick conjunction in Libra, aligning our minds and hearts with a new set of values going forward. We’re thinking logically about our next steps. Share your new moon intentions with someone you feel close to and ask them to support you by holding you accountable.
