Your weekly horoscope is here and get ready, because this is going to be a very busy week in the sky with all types of energetic shifts! The Sun enters Virgo on Monday, turning our minds towards analysis, communication, and wellness. If summer fun has thrown us off-kilter, Virgo energy can help us get back in shape. Make sure to set some intentions at the next new moon (happening this weekend), which occurs in the skies of this diligent and can-do zodiac sign. 

Uranus, the planet that has been creating so much change in our lives, begins its retrograde midweek. This is good news—especially for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. As Uranus’ nervous and erratic powers take a break until January, all signs can more easily attune to its gifts and brilliance. All the shifts, surprises, and chaos we have experienced this year will begin to make sense!

Mercury, our cosmic messenger, enters Libra on Thursday, turning our focus towards relationships, balance, and fairness. Pay special attention to the messages you receive on Wednesday and Thursday, as they could contain powerful information about the themes that will come for you in October (just as the third Mercury retrograde of 2022 ends and Mercury retroshade starts). 

Relationships go through “a phase” this weekend as lover Venus clashes with Uranus and Saturn. Express your needs and seek freedom, but don’t risk a good thing just for the sake of having a good time!

You tend to be a social creature, but the Sun in Virgo could turn your attention towards your family and home life. If summer fun has had you too busy to hang out with your tribe, this week’s new moon is perfect to reconnect and do something fun together. You could also notice a shift in your energy as Uranus goes retrograde, which could help you relax and even sleep better in the case nervousness has been taking a toll on your sleeping time.

If some of your friends and acquaintances have been driving you crazy in the past few months, Uranus going retrograde in your social sector could diminish this energy. For the past few weeks, you’ve been focusing on a paper, proposal, or important project. And as the Sun enters your sector of communication, you could really get some eyes to look at what you’ve accomplished. This week’s new moon is the perfect time to put a project out there or make the final adjustment to it, so you can soon expose your creation to the world.

Leo weekly horoscope

You will love the retrograde of Uranus, as it will allow you to download brilliant information that can be used in your business or career over the months ahead. It will also diminish the erratic energy that you’ve been feeling in this area of your life. There could be trouble in paradise over the weekend. If you are not receiving the attention you need from a lover or partner, you could lash out at them, so be careful with how you handle this energy, Leo.

Virgo weekly horoscope

Get ready to expand, Capricorn. When the Sun enters Virgo, it activates your thirst for knowledge, travel, and connection. The next four weeks are ideal to book a trip to an exciting destination, so start doing your research this weekend.

As your modern planetary ruler, Uranus, goes retrograde this week, you could be in for some major epiphanies around the big changes that have been occurring in your life. Practice stillness around midweek so you can tune in to your intuition. If you can, lay low this weekend, as your relationship sector could be targeted by some of the clashes going on in the sky. It might be best to hang with some of your closest friends who you know to be drama-free.

Pisces weekly horoscope

Get ready to connect at a deep level, Pisces. Virgo rules your one-on-one connections, so a lot of your focus will be on other people during the next four weeks. If you are in a serious partnership, set some goals together under this weekend’s new moon. If you are single, this could be a great time to begin working with a coach, a trainer, or a new business partner. Having someone who mirrors your wishes and desires could have a positive impact regardless of the nature of your current focus.
