Dear NightFall Astrology readers,
This week’s marked by quite a few powerful and intense aspects. If you’re thinking, “bless this mess, I guess we’re already used to intense planetary alignments for the past few weeks, even months”, well, my message to you in this weekly horoscope is “, cheer up; serendipity is just around the corner”.
In astrology, there’s always a balance between challenging and harmonious aspects. Here’s your weekly astrology overview.
- We start the week with Mars in Virgo making an exact trine – its second one for the year – with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn on Monday, September 6th. This positive alignment has been influencing us since last weekend, and it’s particularly energising for major achievements and intense physical activity, especially regarding projects you’ve started or been wanting to start for a while.
This alignment will be most beneficial for Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio, and Pisces.
- On September 6th and 7th, Venus in Libra will be making an auspicious trine to Jupiter retrograde in Aquarius. This is one of the happiest and luckiest aspects of the week and the year. It brings excellent energy for socialising, networking, and business endeavours.
Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, Aries and Sagittarius are the lucky winners of this aspect.
On the same days (depending on your time zone), we’ll be having a New Moon in 14°38′ of Virgo on September 7th at 2:52 AM (CET). A New Moon is formed when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction (0° angle) and always marks a new beginning. The Sun is our consciousness, and the Moon is our subconscious, emotions and intuition. When these 2 start a new cycle, the energy is very intense.
As it’s happening in the mutable sign of Virgo, the main themes will be our health, organisational skills, daily routine, co-workers, and our will to be of service to others through empathy. This New Moon sends us into efficiency overload with the Mars/Pluto trine I mentioned earlier, giving us the energy to dig through these piles. Sparks will be flying with the harmonious trine this New Moon will be making to Uranus retrograde in Taurus. This can bring sudden ideas and positive changes in our daily habits and work, such as reducing our stress through decluttering our physical spaces (and our virtual ones), getting into a brand new and unusual fitness routine, suggesting an original method of project management to our colleagues and/or managers…
Numerologically, 14° reduce to 5: Mercury’s number, enhancing the energy of new changes of this New Moon. Mercury is also the dispositing/ruling planet of the New Moon and will be entering its shadow phase on the same day, making us feel already the slow-down of its upcoming retrograde at the end of the month. This is the pathway that Mercury is now beginning to walk and will retrace once it turns retrograde. 10° of Libra is when it will turn direct again, on October 18th. With Mercury transiting the sign of relationships, harmony, diplomacy and justice, communications, electronic devices, and contract negotiations will start getting a dose of confusion. It would be better to avoid launching any new projects in these areas until the retrograde is over. On the other hand, this is the perfect time to start reviewing any personal and business relationship issues you’ve been having.
Arguments and conflicts in personal relationships will also be in the spotlight during this New Moon, as Mercury will be opposing Chiron retrograde in Aries, potentially bringing up old ego wounds. Use Libra’s diplomacy to navigate as smoothly as possible such situations.
The New Moon will also be in a weak opposition (tense aspect) with Neptune retrograde in Pisces. This can cause insomnia and disruption in sleep patterns, extreme sensitivity, and higher susceptibility towards infections and excessive consumption of alcohol and other substances. Do your best to relax and stay safe.
In all cases, New Moons always bring new opportunities, so be on the lookout for fresh starts in all Virgo-ruled areas!
This New Moon will be most supportive of Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Cancer.
- On September 10th, pleasure-seeking Venus enters intense and dark Scorpio and will remain there until October 7th. Even though Venus is in detriment in this sign, this transit can bring a lot of heat and passion into our relationships.
This transit will support Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces, Capricorn and Virgo the most. New romantic relationships and friendships will be on the horizon for them.
Aquarius, Leo and Taurus should be mindful of compulsive purchases and conflicts in their relationships.
- We end the week with a challenging opposition between the Sun in Virgo and Neptune retrograde in Pisces on September 11th-12th. This is very confusing and deceptive energy. Avoid making any major decisions during this transit.
This alignment will be most challenging for Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Gemini, especially when it comes to their finances, mental health, and relationships. Conflicts should be avoided at all costs.
Bear in mind that this is a general horoscope and is in no way your personal horoscope.
