Weekly Horoscope for Sept. 16 – 22

Sunday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Sagittarius enjoys being out-and-about and you might enjoy being in tune with this astro vibe today. The asteroid Vesta in this same sign indicates that it would be good to spend your energy doing something you really are passionate about.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Capricorn
The first half of this week may take on a serious tone; ‘serious’ is one of the keyword descriptors for the sign Capricorn. Additionally, Saturn, the planet that rules (is associated with) Capricorn, is currently traveling through this same sign (see below). That indicates that a double layer of Capricorn energy is milling around us. A positive use of this energy would be to get a number of items taken care of and checked off of your to-do list.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
The planet Mars, now located in the sign Aquarius on the astrological wheel, can potentially point out a way for you to stretch your comfort zone or to even venture out in a direction you have shied away from before (Aquarius always likes to do something completely different).
In reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde)
