We have a busy week ahead of us! Over the next seven days, there’s a new moon, the third Mercury retrograde of 2023 ends, the two most positive planets connect, and three asteroids change zodiac signs! Asteroids Pallas, Vesta, and Ceres carry receptive and feminine energy, assisting us in the process of healing our most intimate relationships and activating our devotion towards building the home life and security we desire. 

At the beginning of the week, give yourself time and space to rest and think of all the shifts and changes that have transpired for you in the past few months. How can you better adapt and tackle what is being asked of you? Find your answers and write down your intentions at the September 14 new moon, which is ideal for making big changes, especially concerning healing, wellness, and productivity. 

Mercury goes direct on Friday, September 15, putting an end to the long period of revision we’ve experienced this summer. Slowly but surely, life should develop without so many setbacks and unexpected changes. A situation that began shifting around August 23 should be stabilizing within the next few days. 

Saturday is the ideal day to pamper yourself by spending time with your favorite people or splurging on a spa day or tasty dinner. Today, the energy of pleasure-seeking Venus gets magnified, so in the case that life has been challenging, you’re being inspired to seek restoration by being nice to your body and feeding your senses.

Lucky Jupiter is now retrograde in your career sector, Leo, which will slow down your progress in the next few months. However, as it is activated by Venus this week, it could bring you one last gift or piece of good news. If your finances have been under the microscope during the retrograde of Mercury, you could receive some clarity as Mercury goes direct on Friday. However, wait until the end of next week to make any major moves, as the confusion will take some time to dissipate.

Good news, Virgo. The retrograde of Mercury ends this Friday, slowly lowering the intensity you’ve been experiencing in the past two weeks. While it is not yet time to make any major changes, it is time to start weighing your options. As the moon renews itself in your sign on September 14, you’re being asked to write a list of intentions, including your learnings as well as the changes you are now considering. The time to act on them will be at the end of next week!
