We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekly horoscope for the week of September 5-11.
The week opens (September 7) with a productivity boosting connection between the Sun (confidence) in Virgo and Pluto (power) in Capricorn. With these two cosmic powerhouses in earth signs, the areas where we can make the most progress will be in business/work, communication with others, and health. Still, the biggest event of the week happens on September 9, when Jupiter the planet of optimism, opportunity, and good fortune leaves Virgo and enters Libra for a year long stay. With Jupiter spending time in a sign that makes it easier to express its gregarious energy, we can expect big developments (and big gifts) by way of relationships (especially in business and romance), fairness and international diplomacy, beauty, fashion, and creative endeavors.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
