The Weekly Horoscope

Week from 18 to 24 Sep 2017

General Tendencies
Everyday Life / Profession:

With the New Moon the emphasis on the sign of Virgo is blatantly clear now, and because Mercury is in an exact opposition with Neptune, it is also clear how much we need Virgo qualities (mindfulness, care, precision, discipline). Neptune in Pisces is extremely strong and stands for chaotic tendencies that you can only tackle with great effort, knowledge, reason, precaution and planning. We have to make an effort, if we want to go against the currents that lead into uncertainty. In principle we are powerless against the currents, we can only do our best to at least guide them in a sensible direction. In Virgo things depend on the details. Every single movement is valuable. Every reasonable word counts. Venus also knows this, as it moves into Virgo precisely during the New Moon.

Partnership / Love:

With the Virgo New Moon, Venus changes into Virgo and gets closer and closer to Mars. In relationships a careful approach is taking place. You have to make mental contact (Mars-Neptune at the end of the week) before you can make physical contact. Planets in Virgo enter an opposition to Neptune one after the other and then enter a tense aspect with Saturn. The longing is great. The hidden and forbidden are actually appealing; can you admit that?

Everyday Life / Profession:

With the New Moon you become very mindful now. The most tempestuous Aries cannot prevent that and in the process you experience new dimensions of being (Mars-Neptune). Everything appears slower to you. You appear to have an infinite amount of time. These constellations can bring you close to spiritual themes. You can experience the spiritual through devotional work, above all if you have something to do with nature or natural materials. Or also through bodily exercises. The time from now until the middle of October is suited for creative work with visions or for a time-out, during which you can get regenerated. Either way you come into connection with higher spiritual worlds and a deeper satisfaction in everything you do, even if it seems so mundane and appears entirely ordinary.

Partnership / Love:

Partners can now do a lot of good for each other in everyday life. Partners have a need for devotion and attention and rejoice over small gestures. The program of indulgence does not need to be grand or expensive, rather should be expressed as a constant effort towards each other. You cannot take care of it quickly, and definitely not casually. It takes place in each moment, with each trivial opportunity. Each day anew.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Jupiter in Libra has already brought you a lot of health issues. The planets in Virgo show that you are working on these issues intensely now. For you, health begins with self-care. You should take time for yourself. You may take your daily thoughts seriously and write them down. Maybe you have chosen a diet and are paying very close attention to the quality of your food? Restrictions can be experienced with relish when you determine them for yourself. You are the boss in your life and, as boss, carry the responsibility. Because Mars enters an opposition with Neptune, you are not allowed to take on too much. You do not have infinite energy. You also have trouble setting a concrete goal. If you would like to set goals there should be small intermediate stages. Be kind and forgiving with yourself. Give yourself time.

Partnership / Love:

Venus moves into Virgo and intensifies the Virgo New Moon. This makes cleanliness and mindfulness important. Venus gradually approaches Mars (opposing Neptune), which points to two lovers who are still not aware of their affection. This week an indescribable longing grows. Something is missing, but you do not yet know what it exactly is. Maybe you do know it and cannot actually really believe that your wishes could come true.

Everyday Life / Profession:

The Sun, Mars, Mercury and after Wednesday also Venus, plus the New Moon in Virgo show how active you are in your domestic sphere now, and fighting against chaos (Neptune) and obstacles (Saturn). The goal is a new order with much more clarity. Maybe a clearing is taking place, which is also meant in a figurative sense because you are even seeking clarity in your thoughts. Who or what is disturbing this need? Are you hearing and reading too much bad news? What do your four walls and your modest existence have to do with the big wide world? Would it be possible to simply turn off a machine to create silence? Neptune and Saturn desire silence. Make these planets your accomplices, then the fighting, thrashing and searching stops all on its own.

Partnership / Love:

The good news: Venus approaches Mars and will reach it in October (two lovers find each other). The not so good news: it will take a little while longer and you cannot take any shortcuts, even if you think it is possible with enough good will. And anyway: the stars do not compel… How about some more relaxation? Your mind is hyperactive and addicted to control when Mars and Mercury whirl together in Virgo.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Mars and Mercury are in top form in Virgo, analyzing and pulling apart everything that comes under their magnifying glass. Mars and Mercury are opposing Neptune, which indicates the exact opposite (chaos, confusion, ambiguity, falsehood or also: the universe, the big picture), so that these two poles reinforce each other. This makes the hamster wheel turn faster and faster. It is time to bring the two poles to a common denominator. If too many details prevent you from seeing the big picture, you have to find your way back to your feeling and develop a sense for what is essential. The essentials can escape us if we poke around in the details too much. With the Virgo Moon the qualities of analysis and observing details are newly stimulated. You have to be able to look at the whole and the specifics at the same time. That cannot be so difficult after all.

Partnership / Love:

The planets in Virgo emphasize your own small world (of thought) and could make you quite lonely, if you are not able to allow room for other perspectives. If you can manage it though, you will experience a deep bond. Venus reaches Virgo where it will soon unite with Mars. Partners are well on their way to finding their common ground. If something is missing, it is confidence.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Now Venus is moving into Virgo as well, and if you had still believed that you could absolutely not relinquish something, over the course of this week you will notice that in the end you actually can or already have. That isn’t, or wasn’t, so difficult. The Sun has learned its Saturn lesson (self-restraint, ambition, and overcoming ambition). With the New Moon, the Virgo lesson (modesty) enters a new round, or reaches a new level. We have an enormous potential to heal, which is coupled with mindfulness, temperance and taking care of the body. Where there are no obvious causes, spiritual causes have to be found, which brings us to Neptune’s path, which in Pisces sensitizes us to such correspondences so that even diehard rationalists can discover a sense for it.

Partnership / Love:

Neptune pits your heavy intellect against your feelings and breaks your resistance, that is, it simply flushes it away. With a loving glance, strategies become superfluous. It could also be that your partner does not understand your perspective and would like to be in touch with you on a whole other level. Is it important to convince them of your opinion? Do they really have to penetrate so deeply into your subject? Do you need that in order to feel understood?

Everyday Life / Profession:

The sign of Virgo is very emphasized now, and with Mars and Mercury close together you demonstrate your need to orient yourself. You analyze situations and people sharp as a razor, so that it nearly hurts. Actually you would like to explore why the situation or person is one way and not a different way. And of course you would like to improve something and make yourself useful. The Virgo New Moon receives your wishes and carries them into the next month and into the sign of Libra. Libra, where the Sun will move this weekend, would like to ensure balance. You make important preparations for that by defining situations and weaknesses and identifying possible solutions.

Partnership / Love:

Venus moves into Virgo and shows how important themes of relationship are. You have no desire to go through life alone, and if your tongue becomes a bit too sharp now, you will show a sign of reconciliation in order to make sure you have not destroyed anything. With a bit more mindfulness and self control you can spare your partner such rollercoasters. Do you want to try that?

Everyday Life / Profession:

Venus moves into Virgo and, with the other planets in Virgo and opposing Neptune, expresses that you have arrived in a state free from wants. What a liberation from material and bodily necessities! If you can confirm that, you will also feel Jupiter in Libra opposing Uranus in this way. If not, you have a new opportunity with the Virgo New Moon to delve into the qualities of Virgo and gain increasing understanding of its good gifts. This weekend the Sun moves into Libra and indicates a new quality of life and new life force. You find yourself in a situation of regeneration and feel the first positive effects.

Partnership / Love:

Venus approaches Mars now and both of them will meet in Virgo, hold hands, and come really, really close. Until then, you have to endure the persnicketiness of the sign of Virgo, which indicate subterranean dissatisfaction and aggressions. If you are dissatisfied, you have to take a closer look and clarify what you could do differently and better. You are not a victim of the situation, and in the case you are, you will certainly not remain so. You feel this keenly this weekend (Sun in Libra).

Everyday Life / Profession:

Mars and Mercury in Virgo work against uncertainties. Wherever ignorance prevails, they bring knowledge and clarity, where chaos reigns, they bring structure and order, where mistakes and weaknesses are, they create remedies. It would be nice if this would give you a feeling of competence and security. Saturn and Lilith depict a struggle with trust. There are moments when you almost trust blindly, and then there are also moments when you are extremely suspicious. This either/or is not good for you, always bringing you into difficult situations because you behave drastically and awkwardly in accordance. A bit more “Libra” (balance) would be good for you. When the Sun moves into Libra this weekend, you get an idea what “a bit more Libra” could mean for you.

Partnership / Love:

In your love life there is a great need for clarification. Have you been deceiving each other about something? Did you have a totally different conception of your partner? Recognizing reality can be painful, but simultaneously healing. You want a real relationship, not a sham. Were you always totally sincere and did you not gloss over anything? If you can discover such weaknesses in yourself, you are hopefully somewhat more lenient with your partner.

Everyday Life / Profession:

You have taken on a thankless role with Saturn-Lilith, but you find very good arguments and thus gain security and recognition. The Virgo New Moon indicates the necessity of your actions, and that you consider yourself to be a service provider. It also shows how important it is to pay attention to the details so that people now experience Sagittarians as petty or even picky. It is part of your uncomfortable role to teach and correct those around you. You do not do this for your ego, but from a sense of responsibility. The New Moon also has an effect on your role in a team. Is there a pressure to change? Are you ready for a new, higher position, or are you already in one and just noticing how stressful and ungrateful it is?

Partnership / Love:

The Libra Moon follows the detail-obsessed and critical Virgo New Moon (Wednesday), which is a sign of the Sun’s change into Libra (harmony, love, pleasant things) that takes place this weekend when the Moon has already reached Scorpio. You are dealing with normal conditions and always have the feeling that something is missing for the perfect situation. Neptune also expresses that as it opposes Mercury and Mars. As a spiritual person you will feel this deficit less intensely.

Everyday Life / Profession:

Jupiter and Uranus are exactly opposed for the third and last time at the end of the month (it happened before in December 2016 and March 2017), and they indicate that we have just reached a goal that has to do with renewal, modernization and growth. When so many new things are happening like in recent months, an uncertainty arises that you have to master. With the Virgo New Moon and the planets in Virgo, this week emphasizes your efforts to combat the chaos with clear rules. Order and rules are comforting and can relax diffuse situations because everyone knows what they have to do when. However, Neptune opposed to the sign of Virgo would like that we do not overdo it and can turn a blind eye. Rules are good as long as you do not have to force them.

Partnership / Love:

Can you imagine that your focus soon will be more on your private life in the longer term? Jupiter and Uranus indicate that because you have almost achieved a professional or social goal, and you thus enter a quieter phase. The Lunar Node in Leo also indicates it and suggests that you have more time for partnership and love. Do you need a joint trip for these realizations?

Everyday Life / Profession:

In the vernacular it is said: advice is not always nice. The emphasized sign of Virgo with its many well-meaning ideas for improvement can nearly kill you if you are used to living an unconventional, idiosyncratic and free life and now have the additional tendency to doubt yourself. Maybe you have run for cover too often when things got complicated? The planets in Virgo are stubborn, nothing is too complicated for them, quite the opposite, the more opaque and hopeless the situation, the more they get into gear. Is there a field where you are a specialist? If you are occupied with something that interests you a lot and where you are quite good, you can “adopt” the Virgo qualities and do not have to doubt yourself or even get exasperated.

Partnership / Love:

You feel the strong emphasis on Virgo most intensely in your love life. In a close relationship you open yourself up the most and become sensitive to critical tones. Mars and Mercury depict an especially sharp tongue. Who has it? If you should be of the opinion that it is your partner, that would be an indication that you need to develop your own sharp tongue. You could also confront verbal attacks with a great deal of love and patience and thus take the wind out of their sails.

Everyday Life / Profession:

There is now a lot of interpersonal exchange, with details and specialized knowledge being in demand. You have to pay attention to many details and take some things more seriously than corresponds to your nature. Appointments can also play an important role, especially if you generally have trouble keeping them. Many things go wrong when you do not pay attention to details and appointments. Questions of health and nourishment are also matters of concern now, which depend on the right combination and this requires expertise. If you like to improvise, that is your particular strength, but with improvisation alone you begin to skid. If necessary and possible, get someone on your crew who has the necessary knowledge. The constellations offer a constructive partnership.

Partnership / Love:

The confrontation is now more direct, more clear. If you have a blind or sensitive spot, your partner will point you to them for your benefit. But do you find this to be good? Direct words can be hurtful, and you are a sensitive being who can be easily unsettled. Because sensitivity is your great strength you should use this opportunity to tell your partner how you feel and how their words come across to you.
