If Today is Your Birthday: September 1

You have a strong, self-reliant, and upfront personality but you also manage to remain refined, humble, and helpful. Extremely hard-working, you put in more working hours than most and care immensely about what you contribute. You tend to be at your best in service fields, but also in your own business. Although you get along with others, you work best with yourself and for yourself! A bit of a perfectionist, you like to oversee everything that has your name on it. Especially important to you is focus, because when you are able to channel your energies, you can do whatever you want. You are bright, inquisitive, and others tend to love to be around you for your delightful and unique insights. Always willing to lend others a hand, you are also an excellent teacher if you choose to guide others. However, you can find it difficult to ask others for help. Famous people born today: Lily Tomlin, Gloria Estefan, Barry Gibb, Dr. Phil McGraw.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday falls shortly after a Full Moon this year, suggesting a period ahead of communication and teaching. You may be turned to for advice more frequently, and you are very willing to offer your help. This is a strong year for publicity and any other endeavors that involve spreading the word. As well, your ability to be objective–or to see the “big picture”–can be especially pronounced and rewarding this year.

The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in your Solar Return chart, bringing more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Neptune continues its opposition to your Sun this year. This transit began in April 2015 and is in effect until February 2016. There can be events or circumstances that have you questioning your life path, or that leave you feeling as if you no longer have an anchor. Some confusion about where you are headed in life is quite likely. It can be a time of soul-searching and finding yourself. During this time, you may be unsure where to direct your willpower. You could be undergoing confusion about what you want from life, where you are headed, and how to go about satisfying your ego. There is a reason behind this “identity crisis”–you are learning to let go of ego attachments. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose.

Transiting Saturn squares your Sun in December – a quicker pass than Saturn’s usual transit length – and is certain to straighten you out on some level. You’ll be working hard at disciplining yourself. As you face obstacles to your goals, you begin to see the tools with which you have to overcome them. A dose of realism may seem forced upon you, but your efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase your confidence in your ability to be responsible for yourself. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will be apparent. You may lose yourself in work and responsibilities and take yourself too seriously! This is a time for working hard, but it’s important to make time for relaxation and meditation as well.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

Your love and social life should be exciting and rewarding in the period ahead. You are especially creative and expressive this year, and you might often act on impulse. Your love life may be especially animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining.

Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.

Bursts of creativity and energy emerge at seemingly the perfect times, and help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life.

This is a strong year for building your confidence and for putting your plans into motion, particularly after Neptune’s pass in February. It’s also good for taking care of your responsibilities and for applying yourself to your work. You are especially skilled at planning ahead and devising effective strategy. People tend to respond your ideas positively.

Creative pursuits are favored and personal magnetism is strong. Your social life can be especially interesting and progressive this year. You could find that what and who you value changes or becomes clearer this year, and goals can very well adjust along with these discoveries. Permanent alliances can be formed during this period of your life, although you may be reevaluating some existing ones. Good energy is with you for really applying yourself to your work or projects, particularly after February.

2015 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

2016 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

If Today is Your Birthday: August 31

You can be extremely persuasive and charming. However, although you do use your charm to your advantage, there is a point when your big heart and strong morals keep you from taking advantage of others. You have a strong presence and magnetism – qualities that help you immensely towards achievement and success. Security is important to you, and you will work hard to make sure your life is as stable as possible. While you can have a lot of things going on at once, you at your best when you stay organized and when you develop routines and schedules. While you are romantically inclined, you may have your fair share of challenges in love. Luckily, you grow and learn from early mistakes. You are intuitively drawn to loyal, stable partners because of a strong need for security in love. You seek balance in your personal relationships, and you are not afraid to work hard to achieve it. The practical aspects of partnership are important to you, as you intuitively know that although love is important, relationships also need to work in the real world in order to thrive. Famous people born today: Dr. Maria Montessori, Richard Gere, Chris Tucker, James Coburn, Sara Ramirez, Van Morrison.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.

Neptune is no longer opposing your Sun, and there is considerably more clarity in your life now than there was in the last birthday year period.

This year, you’re bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking upon you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. This is a sociable, and perhaps self-indulgent, time when the pursuit of pleasure is one of your high priorities! You could find that you are more open and trusting of friends and lovers and that you easily win others’ trust.

You naturally nurture and support others this year. Needs and cravings seem to be in harmony, or at least not in conflict, with those of your loved ones. It makes you feel good to help and support, and family life is likely to run more smoothly than usual as a result. However, you need to be sure to take care of yourself in the process.

You have a strong desire to share your joy or good fortune with others. You can be very skillful when expressing your beliefs and ideas this year. You can be a persuasive salesperson, guide, teacher, or advocate. You have good artistic sensitivity this year, and you are especially candid and enthusiastic, which endears you to others. You have added charm and graciousness during this period. Your taste is on the more lavish side this year.

Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.

There can be significant involvement in publishing, television, or other areas where sharing ideas with large groups is a theme.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come. You may be called to task for a responsibility that you’ve avoided in the past.

You are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong.

The year ahead can be a strong period for socializing, new interests, and learning. You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. You are willing to put in effort for the projects that matter, but you are also giving your social life and leisure time a lot of attention.

 

2016 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies.

2017 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are generally not formed in a Four personal year. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, September 1st

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

A Solar Eclipse occurs in the sign of Virgo this morning, dear Aries. This is the last in a set (a Solar Eclipse will not occur again in the sign of Virgo for another nine years), and it’s the final push to get your daily routines, work, and health programs into better shape. Reinforcing this theme, Jupiter has only a little more than a week left of its transit of Virgo. Retrograde Mercury encourages you to look to the past for insight into the present and future. It’s also a time for sorting, organizing, and researching. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can bring you face to face with a somewhat sobering reality about a project or situation. However, this shouldn’t destroy your confidence or motivation levels – aim to look for ways to work around roadblocks. Getting through your responsibilities or work can seem more difficult and can take longer, largely because of emotional issues, lack of motivation, or responsibilities elsewhere. Resolve to take things one step at a time and to avoid pushing yourself. Timing may be off, but it’s temporary.

Taurus


Taurus

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar fifth house this morning, dear Taurus. This eclipse can help force an issue related to creative and romantic matters. The coming weeks can be important for getting in better touch with your need to express yourself through creative or romantic channels. Those things/projects/people that have been holding you back from expressing your authentic, creative self may come under scrutiny. A Sun-Saturn square occurs today and is tied to the Eclipse, pointing to the need to clear some hurdles before you move a project or relationship forward. Today and tomorrow, there can be ups and downs in how you perceive things. There may be discouraging reminders or indicators that a project, plan, dream, or idea may need adjustment or some tweaks. What you think you should do and what you want to do can be at complete odds right now. This is not the time to rush things! Be as patient as you can and play by all rules today for best results – it’s simply not the time for cutting corners.

Gemini


Gemini

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar fourth house this morning, dear Gemini. This eclipse can help force an issue related to personal matters, family, and home. The coming weeks can be important for sorting out living arrangements, organizing the home, and getting in better touch with your emotions and need for comfort, safety, and nurture. Clearing the way for new beginnings may involve letting go of a situation or attitude that has been holding you back. There could be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems necessary to revisit. With Saturn and the Sun challenging one another today, relationships can be a little strained. You might feel uncomfortable with a family or partnership matter, but even if it’s challenging to draw on patience right now, slowing down is the best way to handle this energy. Stumbling blocks encountered now encourage you to take things one step at a time. You may need to go without on some level, but this is also temporary. In fact, paring things down will allow you to move forward more quickly, eventually.

Cancer


Cancer

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar third house this morning, dear Cancer. This eclipse can help force an issue related to learning, transportation, or communications. The coming weeks can be important for sorting out your studies, daily affairs, acquaintances, and the style in which you communicate. A goal in the coming weeks may be to become more effective at developing mental rapport with others. There can be motivation to let go of outdated attitudes or conditions so that the path is clear for new beginnings. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can serve to bring responsibilities and obligations to mind. The need to set some limits may arise, particularly when it comes to work and daily life. You could be feeling physically drained now, and work can seem overwhelming. So can daily responsibilities. Rest up when and if you can. Avoid adding more to your plate. Flaws in a current project may be magnified in your mind now.

Leo


Leo

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar second house this morning, dear Leo. This eclipse can help force an issue related to earnings, budgets, resources, personal possessions, ownership, and business. The coming weeks can be important for sorting out financial matters. There can be significant discoveries about your earning potential, and your attachment to things. If you have been holding on too tightly to a lifestyle or financial habits that haven’t been serving you well, this is a time when circumstances force the matter. Major launches or decisions should nevertheless wait with Mercury retrograde in the same sector of your solar chart as the eclipse. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can magnify responsibilities or obstacles. While the Eclipse encourages you to look forward, there is unfinished business to take care of now. A responsibility or seeming roadblock can arise revolving around a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project. Circumstances or people seem to be disapproving or unhelpful today, and you may be left to your own devices. Whatever reality you face now may be discouraging in the moment, but ultimately an important step concerning long-term happiness.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign this morning, dear Virgo. This is the last in a set of Solar Eclipses in your sign, and it won’t recur for another nine years. It can be viewed as a final cosmic push to sort out issues that have been holding you back from confidently pursuing your personal goals. This Eclipse is about making changes that empower you. Mercury’s retrograde in your sign gives this period a past-oriented focus even as it is about clearing the path for new beginnings. Jupiter is in its last week or so of its transit of your sign, giving you another push – and some help – to work through obstacles. The Sun’s square to Saturn today has a way of turning your attention to burdens and delays. Domestic chores and problems in the family dynamic can weigh heavily on your mind right now. Experiences today may serve as an important reality check, and might later be considered blessings in disguise. Slow down, follow the rules, and discipline yourself. Patience has its rewards – perhaps not immediate ones, but long-term benefits. There are plenty of cosmic reasons to slow down and get things right before moving forward.

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar twelfth house this morning, dear Libra. Its energy might be considered a final cosmic push to take care of unfinished business, mental health, and situations that are negatively binding you to the past and preventing personal growth. You may be making some tough decisions regarding letting go of things or situations that are toxic to you. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can turn your attention to the most challenging areas of your life or your responsibilities. This can lead to a temporary feeling of being a bit lonely, misunderstood, or put upon. You could feel invisible, or that others are not truly getting you or your struggles. Indulging in a little self-pity is understandable now, and in a small dose can stimulate you to make changes once the bout is over. Daily activities and errands can weigh heavily on your mind. People are not as cooperative as they usually are, and a defensive tone can be present in communications. Delays and roadblocks to your plans brought about by Saturn are necessary slowdowns. You can help yourself by adjusting your speed, following rules, exercising patience, and not pushing things, or yourself, too hard.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar eleventh house this morning, dear Scorpio. This eclipse can help force an issue that has been holding you back from authentic and empowering friendships, causes, and long-term goals. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can test your patience, but patience is exactly what you need right now to succeed. There can be a delay or roadblock that may be monetary in nature for many of you. For others, a friendship can face a challenge. A plan might no longer seem doable. With people not getting what they want, cranky energy can surround you. You should also keep in mind that a difficult Saturn can disrupt interactions enough that people act defensively. Conversations don’t flow very naturally. Tread with care – you are sensitive, and so are others. Even so, you can make the most of the day by accepting and appreciating the simple things in your life, resigning yourself to making edits and adjustments rather than bold moves, and keeping expectations simple.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar tenth house this morning, dear Sagittarius. This eclipse can help force an issue in your life regarding your career or reputation. Life goals are in focus. There can be important changes in your life regarding your influence or authority, or with authority figures. The Sun’s square to Saturn today can pull your attention to some of your bigger challenges, which might feel overwhelming at first. With Saturn in your sign, you might be feeling a little cut off, on trial, or set back. This is a very temporary condition, and fighting back is possible, only not in the traditional sense. Do your part by working hard at your priorities. Backing down is sometimes the better strategy until strength and confidence return. For some of you, plans are pushed back by a new limitation or duty that emerges now. Get extra rest if possible.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar ninth house this morning, dear Capricorn. This eclipse can help force an issue related to mental growth and adventure. The solar ninth rules your spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the “regular” experiences in your life. Events occurring now push you out of your routine. In some way, you are breaking from the past. The Sun’s square to Saturn today and connected with the eclipse points to obstacles to overcome, echoed by Mercury’s retrograde in this same sector. There may be the need to revisit plans or statements. Doubts can be downers until you realize they slow you down enough to see a critical detail that you previously missed. Circumstances can seem to conspire to remind you of your limitations, and the best strategy now is to think about the long term rather than short term. Too much focus on getting what we want in the moment can lead to unnecessary frustration.

Aquarius


Aquarius

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar eighth house this morning, dear Aquarius. This eclipse can help force an issue related to dependencies if they’re hampering your growth. This is an excellent time for working determinedly on dealing with inner demons. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a relationship or a financial arrangement, then this is a time for coming to terms with the dependency. The Sun’s square to Saturn reminds you, perhaps a bit harshly, of your limits. While serious energy can surround your relationships today, you can think of this as a time to adjust expectations and perhaps slow things down to better pace yourself. Without these moments to catch our breath, we may miss important details that eventually trip us up. You could be feeling discouraged temporarily, particularly when it comes to a friendship or intimate relationship. Thinking of this time as a short break from life’s dramas might help you to lighten up.

Pisces


Pisces

A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar seventh house this morning, dear Pisces. This eclipse can help force an issue related to close relationships, dependencies, and social matters. The coming weeks can be critical for redefining current relationships or your relationship needs and dependencies. If there has been a complicated relationship that you’ve been holding on to, this can become an issue now. The Sun squares Saturn today and is closely tied to the eclipse. You may be feeling a rising need for more personal attention. It’s not necessarily easy to come by, mainly because people seem to be dealing with their own problems and are quite wrapped up in themselves. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations, but any slowdowns experienced today can help you to refocus your attention on those things that actually matter and make a difference in the long term.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 31

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

On this day before a Solar Eclipse, dear Aries, consider reflecting and sorting rather than beginning all-new initiatives. The Moon continues its transit of your sector of play and self-expression until just before midday, encouraging freeform activities, if possible, after which it moves into your work and health sector – an area of great interest for you these days. It may be difficult to stick to schedules right now, either due to outside distractions and interruptions or inner rebelliousness. You may be resisting others who seem to be curtailing your freedom or attempting to tell you what to do. Try instead to get in touch with your heart and consider ways to improve and develop work and health in the coming weeks.

Taurus


Taurus

The Balsamic Moon today encourages you to take a break from pushing ahead, dear Taurus. This is an in-between day that you may want to use for rest, reflection, and attending to odds and ends. What’s begun today may not come to pass or hold weight. There can be some tension related to past transgressions or worries about changes to come. Something may be holding you back, such as a gut feeling or fear, from throwing yourself into a romance or from expressing your feelings right now. Decisions are best left for another day, anyhow! It’s better to make sense of your feelings than to pursue something half-heartedly. Do your best to get to the root of restlessness rather than allow it to drive your life.

Gemini


Gemini

Today is best used for making adjustments, taking a break from the usual routine, and dealing with odds and ends, dear Gemini. Mercury has just turned retrograde, and a Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow. These influences point to reduced capacity to make informed decisions, and this is just fine – you need a break from thinking and doing too much! We may be in the dark on a matter, and for you, this can be a family or domestic matter. Plans may change, particularly social ones. A Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow will put the spotlight on family and home issues for you. Tie up loose ends rather than starting something new. Preserve energy. Avoid trying to push others for an answer or a decision, as it can be difficult to come by right now.

Cancer


Cancer

The Balsamic Moon today encourages a break from overdoing and overthinking, dear Cancer. A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow, and a reboot of sorts can happen, mainly related to personal interests, studies, communications, transportation, and making connections in your life. Even so, Mercury has just turned retrograde, affecting these same areas of life. This suggests that on one hand you’re looking forward to new beginnings, and on the other, you may need to focus on past methods that served you well or take care of unfinished business. Today, watch for speaking too soon about a matter. Watch for a mind that is working overtime today, which can lead to an alarming lack of clarity. Overtime does not mean efficiency and, in fact, subtracts from it. Watch that you don’t muddle your conversations, make an offhand remark that could be damaging, or rush too quickly through important tasks.

Leo


Leo

It’s better not to make any final, critical decisions with a Balsamic Moontoday, dear Leo. A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow morning, marking today as the last full day of the Leo New Moon cycle. Review recent developments and personality changes. In the coming weeks, you’ll be focusing on building and developing your resources. Today, consider ways to make improvements to your financial position and feelings of security but save significant new beginnings for a better time. Mercury’s retrograde encourages review and reflection. A Sun-Uranus influence today can disrupt plans. However, today’s tensions or changes of plans may very well push you into promising directions that you may never have considered otherwise.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

The Moon is Balsamic today, dear Virgo. It’s especially significant to you because the Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow morning is in your sign. Focus on letting go of the negative in your life and consider what you’d like to take with you going forward. The Balsamic phase of the Moon turns us inward for valuable lessons. This is a time for reviewing, reflecting, and tapping into your intuition, and not for pushing forward with new endeavors. If you need to let go of a bad attitude or habit, now is a good time to do so. For you, this is also the end of a yearly solar cycle. Your attitude going into the next cycle can help shape the year ahead, so do what you can to get into a proper headspace. The upcoming period is about reshaping your image if it needs some tweaks. Today is excellent for seeing what fears may have been holding you back.

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

This is a day before the Solar Eclipse, dear Libra, making it a valuable time for tying up loose ends, reflecting, and letting go of those things that no longer suit you or your purpose. New beginnings should wait. Review recent events and take a break from too much thinking. Tension is possible in close relationships today, largely due to a sense that others are restricting you. If you’re feeling stifled, look for ways to express your frustration constructively rather than merely acting out. If you sense someone in your life is frustrated, consider giving them some space to sort things out.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

The Moon is Balsamic today, dear Scorpio, and it’s better to tie up loose ends or finish up projects rather than push ahead. This is especially important with Mercury freshly retrograde and a Solar Eclipse occurring tomorrow morning – we are symbolically in the dark so that critical decisions should probably be delayed if feasible. Tomorrow’s eclipse can help clear a path for you on a social level, and it can also nudge problem areas into the front of your mind for your attention. The coming weeks can involve some clearing the decks regarding a friend, group association, or long-term goal, dream, or plan. Impractical goals may need to be left behind or refined so that you can begin anew. Tonight’s energies are rebellious in quality. If your daily affairs are out of order or chaotic, you may need to get them sorted so that you can better focus on priorities.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow morning, dear Sagittarius, making today a good time to reflect, rest, and recharge rather than a time for rebooting! Career and reputation matters are big topics now, but you need a little time to catch your breath right now. A Sun-Uranus challenge can serve to throw plans a little off. For some, a child or friend can bring some surprises or detours to your day. As much as you’d like to handle your responsibilities, you may very well need to work around distractions. Changes of plans today can stimulate new approaches that ultimately lead you in the right direction, but today is more about tapping into intuition than having a firm sense of where you’re headed.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

The Moon is Balsamic today, dear Capricorn, and a Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow morning that will serve to redirect our energy. Today, aim to think about those things that you want to correct or improve. A solid plan is unlikely to form just yet, but you can do some important thinking now. Save major decision making for a better time. Reflect and review today. A Sun-Uranus influence can throw a few minor surprises into the day. It’s a somewhat destabilizing energy that reminds you to be open to changes.

Aquarius


Aquarius

The Balsamic Moon today points to a need to keep things simple, dear Aquarius. Think in terms of paring down and letting go rather than putting more on your plate. Mercury just turned retrograde – another sign that it’s better to reflect, edit, and review rather than push forward. Tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse is likely to redirect your focus. A Sun-Uranus influence today can point to some tensions that might lead to premature communications or biting words. Daily life can feel a little too chaotic, but do what you can to avoid acting out. Identifying the need to make adjustments and changes can help you stay centered.

Pisces


Pisces

A Solar Eclipse occurs tomorrow, dear Pisces, and Mercury has just turned retrograde. These influences occur in your opposing sign (Virgo), affecting close relationships and negotiations the most. Today is an in-between day in which making adjustments and refinements makes the most sense. There is some destabilizing energy with us now, and it’s designed to shake up things just enough so that you consider new approaches, particularly related to making money or better using your talents to your advantage.

Solar Eclipse in Virgo Horoscopes

It’s time to accept the truth at September’s New Moon


Self-protective bubbles of belief create buffers between us and the difficult issues we face. Nevertheless, the Virgo New Moon on September 1, 2016, is a Solar Eclipse that could pop our balloons of illusion and confront us with reality.

This eclipse opposes imaginative Neptune, magnifying the power of our most colorful fantasies. We might feel as if we’re caught in a dream, unable to tell what’s real. Flights of fancy can complicate relationship dynamics by increasing the intensity of romantic illusions.

Meanwhile, a long-lasting square between Saturn, the Gatekeeper of Reality, and Neptune, the Dissolver of Reality, continues to keep us on our toes. We vacillate between Saturn’s realm of rational facts and Neptune’s watery world of delusion. The perfectionist Virgo Solar Eclipse can set the stage for disillusionment while it opposes Neptune, yet its dynamic square to stern Saturn brings us back down to earth with a thud. Unfortunately, we may not be happy when we finally uncover the truth, but we must learn to accept the circumstances and move on.

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

You can gauge how well you’re currently doing by how much unexpected changes at work or in your health throw you off balance. The Virgo New Moon Eclipse rocks your 6th House of Daily Routine, requiring you to relinquish old habits that no longer support your goals. For example, a sudden health concern may be your body’s way of telling you to improve your lifestyle. Issues that arise should not be ignored or suppressed or they will only return later to cause more serious problems. Act now; sometimes later becomes never.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

You are currently engaged in a process of transmuting your inner joy into reality. In order to make your dreams come true, you must take the recent lessons you’ve learned and begin to put them into practice. A dramatic Virgo New Moon Eclipse falls in your 5th House of Love and Creativity, loosening up old patterns of playing it safe. Taking risks in self-expression can be very rewarding as long as you calculate the pros and cons before shaking up the energy. Don’t hold back when it comes to showing your feelings. Upsets are possible but a profound emotional breakthrough is well worth the effort.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

Domestic pressures bring you face-to-face with your dreams and your disappointments. The Virgo Solar Eclipse lands in your 4th House of Home and Family, revealing cracks in the foundation of your world. It might be scary to realize how far your beliefs have strayed from reality, but you can turn them around through deliberate action rather than panicking and trying to set everything right overnight. Change is inevitable; be honest with yourself and you’ll find the courage to transform a potential loss into a major gain. Letting go is safer than holding on.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Although you might be dreaming of an exotic vacation, the only traveling you’ll likely be doing will be a visit to the neighbors or a quick trip to a local market. The efficient Virgo New Moon Eclipse activates your 3rd House of Distractions, indicating a lot of movement without really going anywhere significant. Your greatest challenge comes from wasting time as you try to weed out the extraneous noise in your life. Don’t be afraid to say no to a good idea, for it’s more productive to concentrate your actions instead of scattering them. Energy flows where attention goes.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Watch your wallet and change your online passwords while the Virgo Solar Eclipse rattles your 2nd House of Money and Resources. You might even find yourself involved in a dispute over a bill or some other financial matter. It’s worth digging to the bottom of the issue even if it raises unpleasant feelings, since a resolvable misunderstanding may be the cause of the current conflict. With nebulous Neptune and realistic Saturn lurking in the picture, the more clarity you can bring to the matter, the better.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Burying your head in the sand is tempting but there is no way to deny the truth. A Solar Eclipse in your sign opposes surreal Neptune in your 7th House of Relationships, luring you into sharing a believable fantasy. But the Sun and Moon square Saturn, confronting you with an unavoidable reality check. Great things can develop from a failure or delay if you’re willing to step up your game and strive for excellence. Your disillusionment can be momentarily painful, but saying goodbye to old habits makes room for something or someone special to enter your life.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

You are reminded of everything in your life that remains incomplete and all those things you do not understand. But you’re driven to explore the invisible metaphysical realms to broaden your perspective and inspire your creativity. Although the Virgo Solar Eclipse stimulates your 12th House of Mystery, its connection to irrepressible Uranus encourages you to reveal your spiritual journey with your closest friends. In fact, you can’t rest until you make others aware of your recent experiences. True power is gained by sharing knowledge not hoarding it.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Being sidetracked by your desires and illusions gobbles up valuable time and money. Although the Virgo New Moon Eclipse makes a racket in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, its opposition to fantasy-prone Neptune in your 5th House of Love can invite a dreamy romance. Refocusing your attention on practical matters makes sense in a rational world. Harder work may bring greater success, but your efforts might be best applied toward personal, rather than material, rewards. Sufi Mystic Rumi wrote, “What you seek is seeking you.”

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Unforeseen changes in your career path may catch you off guard. You might not see the shift coming yet the concentrated energy of the Virgo New Moon Eclipse electrifies your 10th House of Public Status. This cosmic wake-up call puts you on notice to clean up your act and bring any uncertainties out into the open. It’s tempting to avoid a power struggle if you’re dealing with someone who isn’t treating you fairly. Nevertheless, reasserting your authority allows you to reclaim control over your professional life. Be a voice, not an echo.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Unexpected challenges to your belief system, sudden detours in travel plans, or an overload of new information can be quite upsetting to the status quo. The Virgo Solar Eclipse destabilizes your 9th House of Adventure with rapidly changing circumstances, flipping your normally rational thinking into indecision. On the positive side, unanticipated news will thrill you if you keep an open mind. Thankfully, establishing priorities and eliminating extraneous activities reduce the excess of sensory input you’re likely to receive. Clear out the cobwebs and jump into new experiences to accelerate your growth.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

You think you know what is right, but your knowledge could stand between you and happiness. The Virgo New Moon Eclipse polarizes your 8th House of Deep Sharing, insisting that you surrender your absolute certainty in order to get what you want. Imaginative Neptune’s opposition to the Sun and Moon asks you to leave your logic behind. True intimacy may be within your reach, but first you must open your heart. Admitting that you don’t have all the answers is a perfect place to start.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

The urgency for change can be especially intense these days. There’s a tremendous amount of planetary activity focusing on the Virgo New Moon Eclipse that hurls lightning bolts in your 7th House of Significant Others. Issues of fear and loss of control lead to further reevaluation of your relationships. Something may be ending, but it’s human to try to avoid difficult choices that intensify emotions. Nevertheless, it’s essential to get to the truth at the bottom of your soul. When you stand in a place of self-awareness, you are the master of your destiny.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, August 31st

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

The cosmic changes are not over, yet we still might try to re-establish a sense of normalcy in our lives as the Moon shifts into stoic Virgo at 11:22 am EDT. Four planets in Virgo urge us to rely on routine as an antidote to instability as we approach tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse. However, an agitated Sun-Uranus alignment excites us with potential rewards if we’re willing to step off the road more traveled and explore the outer limits of our desires.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

You can dream up many ways to combat your boredom today, but finally come to the realization that escape is not an option. Your promises are catching up with you and there’s really nothing you can do but put your shoulder to the wheel and push, even if it’s an uphill journey. Succumbing to a distraction is not a wise move now; it will only be gratifying for a fleeting moment and just put you further behind schedule. You only fail when you stop trying.

Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

There’s no reason to restrain your colorful streak of creative energy today. In fact, the more chances you take now, the greater your odds for success. Naturally, analyzing your options before you begin a project is prudent, but don’t think about them so much that your mojo begins to fade. Get out of your head and into your heart. Don’t minimize your potential. It’s better to gamble on your vision than settle for mediocrity. Norman Vincent Peale wrote, “Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Although you might know where you’re going, there seems to be too many speed bumps on the road to success. You don’t want to slow down for the purpose of safety. You want to gain momentum and fly right over any obstacles, but that only works in your dreams. The key to reaching your destination is to be aware enough to actually interact with any resistance that’s between you and your personal satisfaction. Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.”

Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

Finding the right words to let someone know how you feel can be exhausting, but you’re not interested in giving up before you bridge the gulf, even if you’re struggling with what to say. Although you might make a false start or two, your powerful intentions combined with persistence win others over. Don’t assume you know where the conversation will lead. Summon up your courage, get the ball rolling and let reality surprise you with the outcome.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You are resistant to conforming to other people’s expectations today. In fact, your rebellious urge won’t settle down, even if you know it will only stir up a storm. You can’t suppress your true nature now because denial only makes it grow stronger. Instead, find a creative channel for expressing your unconventional position. People will be more supportive than you think as long as your message is consistent with your conscience. Intelligence is knowing which path to take; wisdom is taking it.

Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You are in your element as the Moon joins the planetary party already in progress in your rational sign. You can isolate important facts, analyze the data and choose the most sensible direction. However, timing is a problem as tomorrow’s Virgo Solar Eclipse draws near. You might believe that anything you do today will be washed away in the cosmic tides over the next few days. However, nothing is further from the truth. Big shifts are on the horizon, but your current behavior is more important than ever. Picasso said, “Action is the foundational key to all success.”

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You might feel like a monk in search of a monastery today. Unfortunately, even if you find a place for spiritual retreat, you may not have a lot of time for metaphysical pursuits. Nevertheless, the emphasis on your 12th House of Soul Consciousness is as strong as your real-world responsibilities, making your search for inner peace inescapable. Acknowledge the limitations placed on your current actions by circumstance and accept what can’t be changed. However, it’s crucial to keep your dreams alive no matter the cost.

Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

You are resigned to fight an uphill battle today as long as your core beliefs are connected to your cause. In fact, you’re a sight to behold when you’re so charged up and ready to take on the world. But you might find yourself worn out by the end of the day, without a lot to show for your efforts, especially if you’re not following a specific plan. Take a few steps back and reevaluate your strategy. Work smarter, not harder and success can be yours.

Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Although you are highly driven in your pursuit of your professional ambitions these days, your progress is still annoyingly sluggish. Your plans seem to be taking longer to manifest than you imagined. Nevertheless, the clouds are clearing and you can see blue sky today, raising your optimism and increasing your levity. Hope is replacing doubt, even if you’re not yet sure how everything is going to work out, but don’t worry about the big picture now; just attend to each little detail as it arises. Van Gogh said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

You’re drifting in dreamland today and could float off into the inner dimensions of space. Thankfully, the pragmatic Virgo Moon is a counterbalance that keeps you grounded. If you are championing a cause now, shout your message from the mountaintops. Nevertheless, your social concerns might conflict with your personal interests. Sigmund Freud counseled, “In the small matters trust the mind, in the large ones the heart.”

Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

Although your day begins normally, interpersonal dynamics quickly grow complicated. Your initial reaction is to jump in with your rational approach and do whatever is necessary to handle the tension. Unfortunately, your intervention only amplifies the problem today; the more you try to fix things, the worse they get. Paradoxically, the shortest path to resolution is to do nothing at all. Let the energetic imbalances tilt reality until it unwinds. The calm will return after the storm releases the blocked energy. Sometimes, nature takes care of things better than humans.

Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

You may be criticized for being lost in your dreams today, but your inner world is where you do your best work. People might not take the time to listen to your process; they only judge you from their limited perspective. Nevertheless, there’s a grain of truth in the unsolicited advice you receive now. It never hurts to check back with the facts when you’re cruising the outer limits of your imagination. However, author Lloyd Alexander had a point when he wrote, “Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it.”

If Today is Your Birthday: August 30

happy-birthday-cake

If Today is Your Birthday: August 30

You are an extremely generous person who will bend over backward to help out a friend or loved one. You are that especially thoughtful person who remembers the “little things” about others. You are also very perceptive and people-aware. A humanitarian, you are sentimental without being sappy. At times, you may have a tendency to micro-manage your family and loved ones, as you seem to worry a lot about your future and your loved ones’ happiness. You may need to be careful with this so that others don’t perceive you as controlling or critical. Moodiness can be a problem for you at times. Learning to detach yourself and take a step back from situations will help you to better succeed in life. Your finances tend to fluctuate more than most. You are attracted to talented and successful people. You may have to deal with restlessness and changeability in your partnerships. Many of you go through many ups and downs in love. Famous people born today: Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Ashley, Shirley Booth, Mark Strong, Peggy Lipton.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

This year, you’re bound to enjoy increased social opportunities as well as a boost in your personal popularity and magnetism. Others are looking upon you favorably, particularly friends and lovers (or potential lovers). You are more friendly, optimistic, and big-hearted than usual. A cheerful and hopeful outlook increases your chances of gaining cooperation from others. This is a sociable, and perhaps self-indulgent, time when the pursuit of pleasure is one of your high priorities! You could find that you are more open and trusting of friends and lovers and that you easily win others’ trust.

You naturally nurture and support others this year. Needs and cravings seem to be in harmony, or at least not in conflict, with those of your loved ones. It makes you feel good to help and support, and family life is likely to run more smoothly than usual as a result. However, you need to be sure to take care of yourself in the process.

You have a strong desire to share your joy or good fortune with others. You can be very skillful when expressing your beliefs and ideas this year. You can be a persuasive salesperson, guide, teacher, or advocate. You have good artistic sensitivity this year, and you are especially candid and enthusiastic, which endears you to others. You have added charm and graciousness during this period. Your taste is on the more lavish side this year.

Your ability to express yourself and to solve problems is enhanced. You may have opportunities to travel this year, and matters related to publishing, teaching, and writing should go especially well. You may find that you have the right information at the right time this year. You could also have big ideas and plans. Work, especially in communications, goes well. You are able to visualize in broader terms and see the “big picture” now. Your optimism can help you to attract positive circumstances into your life. You are especially enthusiastic about your ideas, and expressing yourself comes easily. Public relations and negotiations tend to run especially smoothly. This is a time for making long-range plans, seeing the big picture, and thinking about what is really important to you in the long run.

There can be significant involvement in publishing, television, or other areas where sharing ideas with large groups is a theme.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

With Mars conjunct Saturn in your Solar Return chart, you are more determined and hard-working than usual. This is an excellent time to get organized and to stick with projects through to the end. When you face obstacles to your goals, which is a likely scenario this year, you are likely to just keep on pushing. Progress may be slow, but it’s steady and solid. What you accomplish now will benefit you for years to come. You may be called to task for a responsibility that you’ve avoided in the past.

You are likely to attract growth-oriented relationships into your life. Your powers of negotiation are very strong.

The year ahead can be a strong period for socializing, new interests, and learning. You are better able to come to a good balance in attitude this year, and many life departments can benefit. You’re in an exceptionally strong position for taking advantage of new opportunities while keeping your feet on the ground. You are willing to put in effort for the projects that matter, but you are also giving your social life and leisure time a lot of attention.

 

2016 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

2017 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time, when it is easy to enjoy life and other people. Focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure. It is likely to be a rather lighthearted year, when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a good year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out, but avoid scattering your energies

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, August 30th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

The Mercury retrograde cycle that begins today and lasts until September 22nd occurs in your work and health sector, dear Aries. Redoing work that you previously thought was completed may be required now. It’s not the ideal time for finding new work, but it’s good for attention to work in progress and for renewing old projects. Be as clear as possible with co-workers or employees now, as misunderstandings, and delays that can result from them, are more likely to occur now. It’s a fine time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities. You might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later.

Taurus


Taurus

Mercury turns retrograde today and will stay so until September 22nd, dear Taurus. Occurring in your romance and creativity sector, delays or apparent backtracking are possible in these areas of your life. Rethinking matters may be appropriate. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. People from the past tend to come back or become a mental/emotional focus. It’s probably not the best time to launch a new creative project, but it’s a good time for reworking an existing one. Same goes for romance! Even so, a Solar Eclipse occurring in just two days can encourage a fresh start or perspective on these matters, even if you have unfinished business to attend to before pressing forward. Slow down and tend to those things you’ve passed over in haste. You are thinking and expressing yourself in different ways.

Gemini


Gemini

Mercury turns retrograde today, and will continue to move in this apparent backward motion until September 22nd, dear Gemini. This can serve to sway your thinking and change your mind about past decisions. Think in terms of review rather than pushing something entirely new. Mercury is your ruler, and during this cycle, you may have some problems with clarity and decision making. You may want to put off major decision-making regarding new endeavors in home improvement, moving, and family matters just for the time being. However, this is a good cycle in which to re-organize your home. This cycle can help you see your life from an entirely different perspective, particularly your emotional life and matters related to family and home.

Cancer


Cancer

Mercury’s retrograde cycle starts today and lasts until September 22nd, dear Cancer, and occurs in your communications sector. This can point to some delays due to misunderstood communications, transportation problems or car repairs, and possibly computer-related difficulties. It would be wise to double-check your work and communications before submitting or sending them off, and to allow extra time to make it to appointments, as some forgetfulness is possible now. However, it’s a good time for journaling and reworking mental projects. You might enjoy renewing or recycling old ideas and interests. Through delays and backtracking, you might discover new ways of connecting, moving around in the world, and expressing yourself – ways that wouldn’t have come to mind otherwise.

Leo


Leo

Mercury stations retrograde today, dear Leo, and will be retrograde until September 22nd. Use this cycle for reviewing financial matters and budgets rather than committing to major new financial agreements and outlays, as these may eventually lose their glamor. There can be a change of mind or interest, possibly even a bit of regret when it comes to those things said or begun right now and recently. There may be the need to review your finances or budget, or you could be dealing with lost or misplaced possessions. Take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period. Some money-making ideas or ventures may go on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. Come at old problems from a new direction or perspective. A Solar Eclipse will occur in the same area of your solar chart in just two days, urging you to look forward and start fresh. As enthusiastic as you are to push projects, take extra time to get take care of unfinished business and to get things right.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Mercury turns retrograde today, and for all signs, there can be some confusion now regarding communications and transportation, dear Virgo. However, this retrograde period, lasting until September 22nd, occurs in your sign, not to mention Mercury is your sign’s ruler, making it considerably more personal for you. You may feel misunderstood at times during this period, and you should take a little extra time making sure you’re clear in your communications. Decision making turns inward during this cycle, and intuition tends to reign over pure logic. You are looking at the world through different filters and can come up with some compelling inner revelations. It may be difficult to communicate them under this influence, but not everything needs to be rationalized. This is a time of heightened spiritual awareness that favors meditation, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work. A Solar Eclipse in your sign is just two days away, and while this will encourage you to look forward, you need to take care of some unfinished business and tie up some loose ends.

Libra

Libra Astrology Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Mercury turns retrograde today, and for all signs, there can be some delays, more red tape than usual, misunderstandings, and lack of clear messages coming through, in general, dear Libra. For you, trusting your instincts may not be as straightforward during this cycle that lasts until September 22nd. Your thinking is more spiritual and less factual which can be a clear asset if applied to the right things. You can quite easily put your foot in your mouth, however, or reveal something that you’d prefer to remain hidden. It’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work that is already underway, for journaling, and for backtracking over the past to find answers. Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can reconnect you to other perfectly valid means of communication.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Mercury turns retrograde today and will continue to move in this apparent backward motion until September 22nd, dear Scorpio. Friendships may involve some backtracking or slow-downs during this time. There can be the need to review debts and obligations or to reassess a relationship. This comes just before a Solar Eclipse affects the same area of your solar chart, so while you need to start fresh in a friendship, you may need to look back before moving ahead. You are required to be more alert than usual when it comes to dealings with friends and groups, as well as business income and dealings with business associates. Some of you could meet an old friend during this cycle. Some of the seeds you recently planted regarding long-term goals are likely to need review or revision.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

The retrograde Mercury cycle that commences today and runs until September 22nd occurs in your career and reputation sector, dear Sagittarius. You may experience more than usual delays or confusion regarding goals, career choices, and projects. Matters from your past might be rehashed or recycled and circulated. There can be some cooling off or slow developments in a close relationship. While it’s a positive time for refining long-term goals and career projects, there can be some confusion surrounding business plans or communications. Extra care should be exercised when communicating with the public, superiors, associates, and partners. Keep in mind that information received or perceived today may be emotionally biased or incomplete. Overall, however, retrograde Mercury cycle are not inherently negative. In fact, they are strong for refining projects that are already underway.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Mercury turns retrograde today and remains so until September 22nd, dear Capricorn. While retrograde Mercury phenomena apply to all zodiac signs, this particular cycle shouldn’t be especially hard on you. Even so, there can be issues with delayed travel or travel plans, publishing delays or redos, or confusing issues surrounding higher education. Work projects may need some review, and health matters might require some backtracking before pushing ahead. Take care when it comes to presenting ideas, writing letters and emails, and any detail work. You may not be seeing the whole picture, but you might also find new ways of looking at a matter that bring about creative results. Jupiter’s quintile to Saturn today boosts your creative power as well.

Aquarius


Aquarius

Mercury turns retrograde today and will move in this apparent backward motion until September 22nd, dear Aquarius. For you, this is a time of introspection and review. Decision making is not as straightforward as it typically is, as you search within for answers and need more time to draw conclusions. There may be some delays or backtracking with matters related to creative projects, romance, intimacy, and financial affairs. This period is especially strong, however, for reviewing joint finances and debts. Rather than taking out new loans, focus on working with what you have. This energy can also play out on an intimate level, and you may find yourself frequently turning to the past to understand the present better.

Pisces


Pisces

Mercury turns retrograde today, and will remain so until September 22nd, dear Pisces. This cycle impacts your close personal relationships as it occurs in your opposite sign (Virgo) and your partnership sector. There may be a turning to the past now, whether it’s a past partner or simply past matters with a current one. Try not to focus on the words chosen to express ideas now, and rather on the intention behind the words. There may be some backtracking or delays related to your domestic life during this cycle. Some of the things you’ve started or communicated recently might need some touching up. Communications can be muddled for the time being, but delays can also help you to better understand your situation as you see details you may have missed.
