Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, September 14th
With Jupiter in your work and health sector now and for the coming year, this can be a time of increased work, dear Aries, but ideally, of increased enjoyment of your work, daily routines, and self-care programs. You’ll have some nice help from Pluto for accomplishing your work and health goals, but this week, you may be dealing with a hurdle. Circumstances are such that it becomes especially important to balance out your life by making more time for spiritual, imaginative, and reflective activities, or you’ll lose some of the motivation and spark you have for your work and body care endeavors. Listen to instinctual needs for time away from your duties either to take care of yourself or of others requiring care. For some, you may be experiencing some restlessness now if your work is not fulfilling you on spiritual and emotional levels. For others, you could be dealing with unresolved issues, fears, or guilt now, and these can stand in the way of your efforts towards wellness. Consider ways to heal self-destructive tendencies. Also, consider that it’s a lack of game plan that’s holding you back, and if so, get to work on clarifying your goals.
With Jupiter now in your creative and romantic sector until next year, dear Taurus, you’re certainly finding new, or rediscovering old, ways to enjoy and express yourself. However, with Jupiter opposing Neptune this week, you could be dealing with some ambiguity in your friendships. Some of you could be feeling that friends are not entirely supportive or reliable. Your new endeavors or relationships could be taking you away from certain friends, networks, or groups, or there may be conflicting goals and outlooks experienced with different relationships. Alternatively, there could be some loss of motivation for a long-term dream or plan if it no longer seems quite as viable. Some people could be letting you down now. Watch for glossing over important, practical details, and resist the appeal of gambling or taking other forms of risks. Young and impressionable Tauruses may be mixing with the “wrong crowd” at this time. Watch also for indiscriminately lending to friends or recreational escapism that goes too far. Do your best to conquer fears that your talents are not special enough and fears of standing out from the crowd. Don’t let a lack of direction, game plan, or structure to leave you behind. You’ll get plenty of help with this going forward.
Uncertainty with career or major life-plan goals, or a lack of solid game plan or structure, can subtly undermine your efforts to improve and enjoy your family and home life this week, dear Gemini. Now and in the coming year, there can be increased enjoyment of, and attention to, your home life and family, but this new drive in your life can meet a temporary challenge now. If you can let things flow instead of pushing for direction or clarity, you’ll be able to get over this hurdle. Even so, it’s important not to completely escape responsibility or jump ship. Aim for balance. Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons are things to avoid now, as they can complicate your life unnecessarily. While there can be quite a bit of joy in your personal life, try not to cling so closely to the past that you forget to tend to important life path responsibilities. Insecurity or ambiguity about your future can certainly deflate you, but even if you don’t know where you’re headed right now, it’s important to apply yourself to practical affairs, such as schooling or work, so that your life is in basic order when you do discover your direction.
With Jupiter expanding your personal interests and bringing more opportunities to learn, share, and connect with others, dear Cancer, this can be a busy time for you. This influence can stimulate quite a bit of enthusiasm for learning, writing, and connecting, and is with you for a year, and the Solar Eclipse yesterday gave another push on the matter. However, with Jupiter opposing Neptune this week, you could be feeling a little overwhelmed or blue if you’re tied down and have too little time to feed your desire to escape and explore. Perhaps you’ve already put too much on your plate, or insecurities about your knowledge base are popping up now and preventing you from going forward with gusto. If you’ve been taking on so many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies that you are now overwhelmed, consider prioritizing. Be especially clear in your communications and watch for misrepresentation. You could experience some feelings of disillusionment with, or interruptions of, current studies or belief systems. These are temporary and remind you to take better care of your emotions going forward. It’s also a call to try to simplify things and get back some order into your life. Find ways to focus and prioritize so that you can take advantage of opportunities that arise.
There is a big push in your life towards material goals these days, dear Leo, and you can be feeling quite enthusiastic about a particular project or business. Some of you could have a few too many ideas or projects in the works and this can feel a little overwhelming this week, particularly if you discover that you don’t have all the resources or support you anticipated and need. Other Leos might be wrestling with funding source problems and unreliability, or old debt. However, excellent energy is with you for new sources of, or increased, income from your own efforts not only this month and on some level in the coming year as well. Right now, you need to be a little more disciplined. Be on the alert for glossing over or ignoring certain expenses or debts. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency can be especially strong this week. There can be a conflict over someone else’s resources or money, issues with others squandering your resources, or a frustrating clash of values. Watch for over-indulgence and be extra careful if you are lending or borrowing.
With Jupiter in your sign for a month, dear Virgo, and for the coming year, you’ll be discovering all sorts of new facets to your personality, and confidence is building. A solar Eclipse just occurred in your sign, giving you yet another nudge forward – to go after what you want. However, there is a Jupiter-Neptune opposition this week that can serve as a small hurdle, largely in the form of some soul-searching as to what it is you are shooting for. For some of you, this aspect can take the form of a small disappointment with a partner or relationship status. There can be a sense that you’re without an anchor or game plan. While Jupiter is in your sign and urging you to try new things and to go forward with confidence, someone (or circumstances) may be indifferent or unreliable, or possibly even feel a little threatened by your displays of independence. There may be problems with self-discipline, budgets, and limits to deal with now. Getting these things resolved should be a priority now so that you’re in the best possible shape to enjoy the upcoming Jupiter-Pluto trine and the opportunities for self-development it will bring. Once past this feeling of overwhelmed, and with a greater understanding of your needs and wants, you’ll be raring to go.
With a strong emphasis on your sector of hidden self, privacy, rest, and spirituality these days, dear Libra, you could find yourself very frequently needing extra time to yourself or time to refresh and regroup emotionally. Mental health matters are in strong focus. Some of you could be doing a lot for others. However, a Jupiter-Neptune opposition this week reminds you to seek out balance between doing and resting. Ambiguity in your daily affairs, with work, or with physical health matters can certainly weigh on your mind and interrupt your restful activities. Lack of structure and discipline can eat into your inner world. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. Difficulties keeping up with daily schedules can be an issue. Escapism should be watched for, as this will only serve to exacerbate problems. There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well. Neglect may be your biggest enemy this week. It’s not a given, just a potential, so remind yourself to seek out balance.
You have recently begun a year-long cycle that points to prosperity in your social life, dear Scorpio, and the Solar Eclipse yesterday has brought another charge of energy in that direction. However, this week there can be some concerns, guilt, excess, or confusion that needs to be addressed before moving forward more confidently. This can involve a romance, a personal project or goal, or children. Some of you may have been pursuing a project on your own, and this month, you may realize that you’d benefit most either by giving up a current project or goal and pursuing a new one, or accepting that you’d be better off enlisting help. The change is likely to be an empowering one, even if there is some resistance at first. There could be some disappointment or insecurity on romantic or creative levels that is affecting your friendships and your ability to get out, diversify, and enjoy yourself relatively free of restrictions. Watch for an over-emphasis on activities that leave you feeling guilty about not dealing with your responsibilities effectively. There may be difficulties with a romantic partner or children who may be at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your friendships and causes. Nevertheless, getting over this hump will ease you into an upcoming fabulous Jupiter-Pluto trine that is sure to provide the direction and confidence you may feel is lacking now.
Jupiter has been enlivening your career and reputation sector for the last month, dear Sagittarius, and will continue to bring expansion and growth to these areas of life for another year. This transit is strong for confidence about your ability to lead, direct your life, and advance your professional interests. However, this week a Jupiter-Neptune opposition occurs which can symbolize a hurdle to jump in the form of a test or brief slowdown. It can be disorienting as you may question your ability to take the lead. Disorganization or ambiguity on the home front, or inner insecurities, can leave you feeling less than effective. You may be wrestling with your own insecurities or a lack of solid support, possibly from family, and this can affect your ability to attend to your more worldly concerns in a focused way. There may be difficulties with a family member who is at odds with the energy and time you are pouring into your career or public life. Some of you may be feeling that you don’t have a solid anchor. You may be confused with so many options and possibilities in front of you. This is something that you can and will overcome, and you’ll be better off for it. A game plan that takes into consideration your priorities makes sense now. Today is strong for coming to important conclusions with the help of someone special to you.
While you’ve had some big pushes towards exploring and discovering new things recently, dear Capricorn, this week you may need to battle a tendency to be disorganized in your daily life or fuzzy on your facts. Get over this hurdle, and you’ll be far better prepared for opportunities in October and beyond, when you’re especially credible, taken seriously, and opportunities to advance your interests emerge. For now, you could be feeling some disillusionment with education or personal interests, difficulties with instability in the family unit or with home life/moving house that restrict your explorations, or challenges keeping up with daily life due to interruptions. Watch for misrepresentation by being especially clear in your communications. As well, you could find that you’re procrastinating or responding to distractions simply because you don’t really have a game plan or direction to head. Recognize that any insecurities you may be feeling about putting yourself out there are likely due to disorganization and distraction, which with some effort can be corrected. The more organized you feel, the clearer your conscience and the more confidence you’ll have to do new things and share your ideas with others.
Jupiter has been transiting your solar eighth house for a month, dear Aquarius, and will continue here for another year. This can bring a more joyful inner or intimate life and better support from others. It’s also a powerful time to get into deeper touch with yourself, inner desires, fears, addictions, and vulnerabilities. If there are any insecurities about your ability to stand on your own financially, however, they are likely to emerge this week as Jupiter pulls up to an opposition with Neptune. Taking on too much debt or relying too heavily on others for support may be an issue for some of you. It’s important to remind yourself to avoid excesses that can negatively impact your personal income and to watch for the accumulation of shared debt. Use caution when it comes to lending and borrowing, even as you may be feeling quite generous or concerned about helping out others. As well, you may want to use some discretion when communicating about intimate matters. However, don’t let insecurities hold you back from enjoying your life and your relationships. Consider ways to improve your feelings of confidence about your own talents and resources. One possibility is getting more organized in these areas. Part of your insecurity could be about not knowing the facts if you’ve been avoiding them.
Jupiter opposes Neptune, perfecting in three days, dear Pisces. This can stir up an identity crisis of sorts, as both planets are your rulers and Neptune happens to be in your sign. How much should you be giving of yourself to your relationships can be a question now for some of you. There can be indecision now, and that’s par for the course as you get into better touch with what you need and want from relationships, and how willing you are to share yourself at this time in your life. It will be important to let a partner know what you want, or at the very least, that you’re undecided at this time, which is the more likely scenario. This week, you may be wrestling with your own image and concept of independence, and you may be struggling with whether to allow someone else to take the lead. With Neptune in your sign, you are not always sure of what you want and you can also be a little commitment-shy. Nevertheless, responsibilities call and people in your life seem to be offering you what you need. Some of you could be attracting partners who are more concerned with freedom than with pairing, or who seem to be quite extravagant or full of themselves. There could be troubles associated with an existing partner’s extravagance or demand for freedom, and this can make you feel a little uneasy. Your best bet now is to remind yourself of your own worth and get yourself more organized, as insecurities now may be due to some level of self-neglect or lack of awareness of all that you have to offer.
