Weekly Horoscope 4th September to 10th September 2013
Mercury, the planet of communication, is in Virgo all week, suggesting that we analyse every situation and take times to think things through. That all sounds very inspiring until we see that it makes only weak aspects, and on the 9th, when it moves into Libra, doesn’t make any aspects at all. On 6th Sept the Moon snuggles up to go conjunct, but with only a flaky semi-sextile to Venus in Libra lots of heart-felt talk might end in tears; especially as Venus is out on a limb too, making it near enough impossible to get our personal desires met. This will make it a tough time for communication, and result in lots of internal processing and difficulty getting your point across. Yes folks, this goes for EVERY star sign, not just Virgo.
For the entire week the Sun in Virgo is opposite Chiron in Pisces stirring up old hurts, and with Venus weakly aspected throughout it doesn’t look like a very happy time ahead, especially for anyone looking for romance.
This is definitely a duvet week where for many of us it will all be a whole lot easier if we simply don’t bother to climb out of bed in the morning.
If you do get out of bed I’m back on Susyradio on Wednesday between 1pm and 2pm BST with Paul Tizzard
Aries will find the 7th an excellent day to push forwards in both business ventures and the buying and selling of property, or moving house. It’s an excellent time to borrow money, and success can be achieved overseas, or with foreign partners. Everything’s revolving around work and duty, so please, if you’re out with friends, try hard to switch the conversation away from all things related to business.
Taureans can find work pretty confusing this week, thinking they’ve done a lot and not reaped much reward. Watch out for road rage, trolley rage and any other type of rage with older people who are strangers. Keep calm and walk away. Sports are a great stress buster and see you achieving success, while social life revolves around the home and helping other people sort out their problems.
Mercury rules Gemini and its weak aspects create stalemates at home and awkward periods of long silence. New business ventures start to take out and this is a great time to consolidate financial transactions, with a hand-shake, leave reading and signing the paperwork for a week or so. If you have children, or are looking to study, you may well be offered a place at the school, college or university that you’ve been waiting to have confirmed. Romance is confusing but house hunting brings results.
For Cancerians money and property issues still cause concern. Responsibilities weigh heavy in connection with elders, siblings and spouses, so just remember that there’s only one of you and you can’t be all things to all people. Pleasure is to be found on long journeys taken on your own and socialising with close neighbours and friends. As much as you love your home this week it’s best to stay out and about as much as possible because as soon as you’re indoors again other people will make demands on your time.
Leos can feel very tetchy this week, especially when driving or on public transport. Promises of future prosperity and offered because people in authority have acknowledged how hard you work. Children will squabble when you try and rearrange the living space, and grown-ups will squabble like children. They all know think they know better than you. Anyone involved in motor-sports or sports involving strength can achieve success. If you have any on-going legal battles they are nearing a resolution and some of you may discover that you benefit from a will.
Virgos will overcome this week’s problems by overspending. Nothing wrong with a bit of retail therapy. Uniforms and team equipment will be on the shopping list, and, for both men and women, something really sleek and snazzy to show off to others when out wining and dining. Your social life revolves around formal dinner invitations, so dress to impress. Difficulties at home, especially with things like the plumbing really irritate, but this is when you discover who your friends because they’ll rush to your rescue, make you a cuppa and invite you to stay for supper. The muck turns into gold.
With your ruling planet Venus acting all distant Librans will feel especially unrewarded. However, Saturn is exalted in your sign and this week it makes excellent aspects in the areas of romance, especially if one of you is slightly older, property and laying down plans for long trips and visits overseas. Business relationships may feel tense, but as difficult as communication is this week, push ahead and make your boundaries clear. You’re ready for new beginnings and this is time to sweep the decks.
Scorpios are still feeling the burden of responsibility, but there are positive breakthroughs this week, especially if buying property. Restlessness is creeping up and many of you will be looking to change career. If you’ve already put in your job application you may well hear positive news, because luck is on your side as far as gaining prestige. This is a time to shine and be seen by others as someone who is strong and powerful.
Sagittarians never do like sitting still for long and this week you’re fidgeting all over the place. People want to tie you down to being group captain or team leader, but you’d rather go for long walks, play tennis and stretch your body. Conflicts with others about who they think you are and what you should do, versus who you know you are and what you like to do, will make you stressed. Best advice is to run away and hide because while Mercury is weakly aspected nobody is listening to your point of view.
Capricorns will find all relationships difficult to handle this week, and might even bring tears, so it’s best to be stubborn and make out that you know best, even if you don’t feel that you do. Bluff is the way forwards. Retail therapy is in the stars for you as well, but unlike Virgo you’re not out to shop for lasting goodies, this is all about instant gratification, so expect to find chocolate leaping into your shopping basket, as well as sweets and biscuits. There’ll be a surprise person asking to share it with you, someone you didn’t think cared, which cheers you up.
Aquarians appear to be skimming through this complex week and unearthing its good points. All work brings good financial rewards, probably more than anticipated. Friendships are tested but news ideas evolve through heated discussions, and Aquarians are never ones to let a tiff break a friendship. Some people will think you’re seeing the world sideways and not taking life seriously enough, but you’ll laugh and wonder why everyone around you is so het up.
Pisces are the others sign who appear to be dodging the stones thrown by this week’s planetary alignments. Luck is on your side in connection with relationships and property, so for you it’s smiling all the way. If you work in education or are teaching children of your own taking breaks for exercise will see everyone working better. Professional and personal politics threaten to mar your week, so take refuge in a good book or movie and forget it even exists.
