Your Weekly Horoscope for September 5–11, 2021: Flowing with the Rhythm of the Moon

September 5, 2021

With the guidance from your weekly horoscope, dance on into September!

While the week will start with one sharp aspect, the majority of the days ahead will bring clear skies and happy eyes. Plan ahead to make sure that you’re maximizing the cosmic power toward your goals!

At the very onset of the week, Venus in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn. This will bring power and control issues into relationships. If there have been simmering tensions beneath the radar, they could explode now. The sweet innocence of Venus will be under siege from the hissing fire of Pluto, damaging weak relationships and causing further distance within them. Those with manipulative or deceptive tendencies could seek to exercise them upon others, so it’s best to tread with extreme caution. Threats and ultimatums may arise—causing an “all or nothing” rift within unions. Thankfully, this energy should pass rather quickly and not linger into the rest of the week.

A new moon in Virgo arrives on September 6. This lunation will aid us in building a healthy work-life balance as we improve our routines. This is an excellent time to pursue a better job, take on more projects with your current employer, or work to launch a business. Also, as Virgo holds ties to health, fitness, and diet, starting a new plan at this time is also auspicious.

Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn on September 6, too. This tremendously powerful energy can be directed any way that we wish—allowing us to conquer or achieve victory. Our ambitions will be stimulated, as we seek to attack our goals relentlessly. We may now step into power and success depending on how we have been building toward it. On a personal level, this energy can also increase our sexual chemistry, magnetism, and attraction. Our passions will ignite.

Mercury Retrograde Enters Pre-Shadow

Next on September 6, mental Mercury officially begins his pre-shadow phase within Libra. The retrograde begins on September 27. Anything that feels a bit “off” in the coming weeks will be reviewed during the actual retrograde phase until October 18.

Sweet Venus in Libra trines Jupiter in Aquarius on the sixth, too. What an active day! This particular planetary aspect will bring euphoria, happiness, and love to our lives. This energy can help individuals find new love or couples mend weakened relationships. Socializing will shine. Pleasure, shopping, and indulgence will call to us.

The final aspect to note on September 6 will be that of the sun in Virgo in a trine to Uranus in Taurus. This energy will be especially infused into the new moon, as it is almost exact in aspect. Positive change, excitement, and good fortune will be offered to us—and it is up to us to say: “yes!” Step outside of your routine and let the universe guide you toward a newfound adventure.

Last to note this week will be the movement of Venus into Scorpio on September 10. This will transform our Lesser Benefic into a goddess of the night, increasing our need for passion, commitment, and rapture. All relationships will become extremely intense, as we crave “all or nothing” in union. Karmic soulmate connections could enter our lives and transform our paths forever.
