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 12-18.
There's a meetup between the Sun (self-expression, confidence) and Mercury (communication) on September 12 that will key up the true power of Mercury retrograde. With both the Sun and Mercury in Virgo, we'll be asked to look at something from the past and find ways to fix it rather than freak out about it. Since Virgo handles health- and work-related matters, look to these areas to make the most impact.
However, the biggest event of the week goes down on Friday, September 16, when the Sun and Moon (emotions) meet for a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces. Picking up from the Pisces eclipse in March 2016, we can expect this eclipse to stir us deep in our souls; helping us to release something that's no longer fulfilling. With Mars (passion, anger) squaring off with this eclipse we can expect whatever feelings that come up this week to be of the visceral kind. Though with Mars and Uranus (breakthrough) getting friendly this week, it looks like we won't be too upset at having to leave something behind. Onward!
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook each Monday at 4 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Think of this week as your moment to end or close a chapter in your life that offers you no growth or emotional nourishment. Freedom is a major theme for you now, don't let anything get in the way of yours.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Are the people in your life able to pull their own weight? What if you weren't always coming to the rescue? These are questions that need answers now as you seek out more balance in your relationships.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's time to take your career to the next level, but is a relationship or family obligation thwarting your plans? You may need to look to ways to strengthen your support system. You can't get to the top alone.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If it's more freedom you crave, it's time to better prioritize the responsibilities and tasks already on your plate. Don't let procrastination stand in between you and your biggest dreams.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Something you've been building or saving towards could finally pay off. Conversely, you could also discover where you've been giving too much of your time and resources away. Your security comes first.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Now that you're getting clearer about how you want to move forward, you may decide to take a relationship to the next level or end one entirely. Think of yourself as making necessary renovations.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You could experience a revelation this week that motivates you to close the door on a draining job situation or to break an addiction (to sugar?) that's been affecting your health. Take care of you.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
This week should serve as a powerful reminder of why you may need to stop selling yourself short when it comes to love or your creative genius. You deserve better. Make sure you're getting it.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
An issue at home could call on most of your time now, leaving you feeling like you have to put your plans or ambitions on the back burner. Secure your foundations so you can build for the future.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Let it go, Capricorn. It's no sense in clinging to an old perspective idea, or belief if it's not taking you anywhere you need to be or limiting your growth in some way. Update your thinking.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This is the week not only to refine your strategy to see your hopes and wishes come true, but it's also a good week to make sure you have the resources/finances in place to execute that strategy.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You've been steadily leveling up, but do your relationships (whether business or romantic) reflect the boss you're becoming? Now's the time to call on some self-discipline in your career and partnership goals.
