This week is action-packed, which you might have guessed since it starts with a New Moon in the busy-body sign of Virgo.
The underlying energy of this week is born from the tension between freedom, spirit and dissipation vs. structure, tangibility and direction.
You may feel a little all-over-the-place right now. Try to figure out what is trying to pull you and in what directions.
Something is suppose to be born from this chaos and you are the conduit so aim for as much clarity and intention as you can manage around why you do what you do and where you place your attention.
Read your Rising, Sun and Moon sign horoscopes below (in that order) in preparation for the madness!

Your planet is all over the place, making connection after connection this week and you may have a hard time knowing where you should put your focus; Rest? Work? Romance? Exercise? A spontaneous trip? Keep yourself from scrambling by making a list of priorities for the month, break it down into weeks, and then down further into daily tasks and commitments. This will help you to find homes for all of the ideas and commitments you have and give your brain a rest. You’re overdue for some sort of reset. If you can, take a trip into nature and just breathe and connect with your source. If you don’t have access to grass, forest or beach, meditation and a bath may do the trick.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your planet transitioned into the heavy energy of Scorpio earlier this week, and if you’re feeling a little more broody and prone to self-isolation than usual, this may be why. The key to working with Scorpio energy is to give it a place to focus. To begin or finish some kind of mental or physical project will give the sharp and inquisitive energy of the fixed water sign somewhere to let off the psychological steam it needs to release. Find a place to exercise your freedom and invest your energy intentionally and this can be an incredibly productive and expansive time for you and your work.

Venus moved into your sign on Sunday and this week Mars moves into your fourth house of roots. If you feel the urge to clean, re-decorate, reorganize or otherwise indulge in the beautification and expansion of the ways that you experience and express beauty through your body and space, give in! It doesn’t have to be expensive but some kind of effort to increase your comfort, safety and pleasure in the spaces and the body that you inhabit is in order. Think through what makes the most sense for you in your life right now and what would increase your ability to feel confident and content and start there.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your ruling planet, Jupiter, makes some interesting connections this week to the Sun, Pluto, and Mercury. The tide is shifting around the way you think and feel and the old habits and ruts of before seem tired and useless. You may feel frustrated with yourself this week, but there is no use in dwelling. Right now is all about trial and error and the discovery of what fits into where you are in your life now. Embrace the growth you are experiencing by investing in excitement and action that feels aligned with your deeper desires instead of an attempt at a temporary fix or shooting in the dark.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Mars moves from your home sign to your house of finance, worth and stability and you might start to feel impatient about seeing the material growth or impact of the projects you’ve begun or invested in more seriously. Whenever you feel the urge to “prove” something to yourself or others, come back to what and who you actually do this for. Other people’s approval will only come once you approve of yourself and create with confidence. Do the inner work to resolve any dependence you have on external validation and you will always feel successful as long as you are doing what you love.
Mars moves back into your sign, this week, and its energy will do much more for you now if you look back on its time in retrograde and see what lessons it wanted you to learn. Since it traveled from your first house back into your twelfth, the themes may have been in reference to the ways that you prioritize your spiritual and energetic protection when you engage in projects and relationships. Last week was about integration of spirit and slowing down. What did you learn from that? How can you make space for this kind of alignment and wholeness in your everyday life? How does it inform what you choose to invest in? Commit to the constant exploration of these themes, but start now!
Your thoughts may feel more jumbled and intense than usual, right now. There is a busyness to the air that you don’t vibe as well with and your psyche may pick up on it in unsavory ways. Stock up on mantras, podcasts, music and meditation apps to help clear out the oppressive noise and zero in on the kind of mindset you want and need to feel settled and content. Your sensitivity can sometimes feel like a curse, but it really is a blessing for both you and those around you, as once you harness and direct your energy intentionally everyone around you can feel the shift. Find steadiness, solace and peace-of-mind for yourself, this week, knowing that it will act as a ripple effect in what surrounds you.
(March 21-April 19)
Your ruling planet on the move, Mars, slides back into Aquarius, this week. If you’ve been getting caught up in the details and the nitty-gritty of surviving day-to-day, this is the week to zoom out. Use meditation, vision-boarding, conversation, and writing to figure out what your plan is. What relationships are you interested in strengthening? Who, exactly, are you trying to serve through the work that you do? Does that seem to be who actually has access to it, now? What is your five-year plan for increasing the resonance and depth of meaning in your life? Don't shy away from the big questions. While they may seem like distractions from your everyday, they are actually what guide it. Make any changes necessary in response to your answers.
(April 20-May 20)
Mars moves back into your tenth house this week and Venus into your seventh, highlighting both your relationships and your career at once. Brace yourself for being a busy bee, this week. Maintain your energy through planning out your food and sleep schedules and glancing at (or making) you list of values that guide everything you do. This is the week to make the important calls, send the nerve-wracking emails and to take chances. Focus on the honest expression of your competence and investment in your work as well as being brazen and present for the love and support in your life and this week will be a win.
(May 21-June 21)
You may feel more tired and spend more time in your head than usual, now. There is a daunting, deep energy that cloaks your ruling planet, Mercury, throughout this week and you may need lots of alone time and a steadfast relationship to your favorite processing tools (art, writing, reading, etc) to help pull you out of the fog. Right now may not be the time for decision-making or putting any pressure on yourself to perform anything extraneous or new. For right now, lean into mystery and curiosity about where you are and what you need in your life, sans pressure or judgement. Your mind needs some space to breathe.
(June 22-July 22)
Virgo season in its entire essence and the New Moon from early this week activated your mind and you are currently a magnet for ideas. Your job will be to learn how to direct these ideas and questions to probable solutions. This is your week of research. What fields are you interested in being recognized in? Who is in power in those fields currently? What did it take for them to get there? What kind of leadership and power are you aiming to take in these fields and in your life at large? Nowadays, the world is at your fingertips. Find ways to use this to your advantage and break through the barriers between thinking, knowing and doing.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Your ruling body, the Sun, comes into direct contact with both Jupiter and Pluto in subtle but supportive ways, this week. Jupiter being expansion of the intellect and understanding and Pluto being depth of feeling and power. There is a well of energy at your disposal right now but you have to say “yes” to it. You say “yes” by being strategic about your energetic investments in people, ideas and situations. You take risks and believe that the universe has your back in offering you equal reward. More than that, you feel the nudge the universe is giving you and you use it to propel yourself in the direction of intentional self-sufficiency, stability, vulnerability and support for other.
