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 Sept 26-Oct 2.
The atmosphere is ripe with good news and excitement as the stars align to bring us a few gifts this week. The first one comes on Monday, September 26, when Pluto (power) finally comes out of its five month hibernation in security-oriented Capricorn. While Pluto was retrograde, we were confronted with situations and circumstances that called for us to release or purge something from our lives that was no longer considered worth our time, energy, or obsession. With Pluto moving direct now, we can also move forward with a renewed sense of empowerment. Also on Monday, the Sun (confidence, power) makes a rare connection with Jupiter (abundance, opportunity) in creative and romantic Libra. With these two together, there could be big rewards on the horizon if we’re willing to shoot for whatever gets our hearts going.
On Tuesday, Mars (passion, drive) enters ambitious and hard-working Capricorn, lending us the courage and stamina to turn our inspirations (thank you, Libra!) into something real. Between Mars being in Capricorn and Venus (love, wealth) in Scorpio, opportunities to make some serious bank will be abound if we’re savvy. By the end of the week (Sept 30), a New Moon in Libra helps us to further capitalize on the trend of new beginnings. Since this New Moon is the second one of September (we rarely get two New Moons in one month), consider that what’s started now will be all the more auspicious. Think: love, beauty, and balance.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
If money has been on your mind, consider this your week to go after any professional opportunities that offer you more clout and more cash. With all the hard work you’ve been putting in, don’t be surprised if an offer is made. You’ve earned it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Romance is in the air this week, as the stars align in your favor. Singles could meet someone with sticking power either through a friend, travel, or an online profile. If in a relationship, the sparks fly with a little spontaneous fun.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Think of this week as your opportunity to stop selling yourself short when it comes to your talent and creative genius. If you feel like you’ve been settling for less, this is the time to flex your earning power. Watch out for sudden expenses.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It’s time to let loose, Cancer. Consider this your week to throw yourself into your passions, creative ideas, or some plain ol’ fun as your craving for fresh ventures/adventures will be insatiable now, yet also rewarding. Expect love to be sweet.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Your creative brilliance soars this week, so pull no punches when it comes to sharing that brilliance with an audience or good people in high places, as the start of something now could lead to big dividends later. Physically, your health gets a boost.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
A job offer or new opportunity to make some extra cash could be presented to you this week, though make sure that whatever is offered is a step up, not a step back. In matters of the heart, love begins to sizzle. Get out and enjoy yourself.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
As if things could couldn’t get any better for you, this week practically half the cosmos will be on your side. New career opportunities sparkle, while you may find your own sparkle returning. In love, you could get lucky whether single or not.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The look of love in is in your eyes this week, as your naturally seductive charm hits the roof. Romantically, the picture is bright no matter your relationship status. Sprucing up your look, or treating yourself to something nice could lift your spirits.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You’re a big idea kind of person and this week it will be about paring down some of those ideas into smaller achievable goals to stay on course and avoid burnout. If you play your cards right, these ideas could lead to more money.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Well, look at whose time has finally come. This week it will feel like it’s all about you and rightfully so. If there’s something or someone you’ve been wanting to go after, this is your time to do it. Just try not to burn down small villages in the process.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This is the week for trying something new; whether it’s visiting a new country, taking up a new field of study, or laying plans for one of your dreams. However, as the world opens up to you, you may try to talk yourself out of stepping out into it —don’t.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Money takes a chunk of your focus this week as you get a cosmic nudge to improve your financial affairs. Use this week to begin a get-out-of-debt plan, apply for a loan or funding, or make a major investment with long-term benefits.
