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 19-25.
The biggest day on the calendar this week is September 22, as this is the day Mercury retrograde ends, Libra season begins, and the Fall Equinox takes place. With Mercury retrograde over, we can expect communication, tech, and travel to have less hiccups and delays, while on that same day Mercury meets up with Pluto (power) giving us laser focus and concentration. When Libra season begins, we can expect our source of creativity, vitality, and confidence to come by way of mutually beneficial partnerships and 50/50 terms. Under the influence of the Fall Equinox, the Libran theme of balance and harmony is amplified as we're called to make sure everything is fair and square in our relationships and finances.
And speaking of love and money, we may find ourselves taking an instinctual approach to both when Venus (wealth, partnership) enters the deep and emotional waters of Scorpio on September 23. While Libra season will be helping us to cultivate connections with others, Venus in Scorpio will help us to determine who and what is worth our time and affections.
Read below to find out what this week's stars means for your sign.
