September 23, 2023

With Libra season underway, we’ve got a full moon in Aries on the horizon. But this week could also bring relationship troubles—here’s your weekly horoscope.

A dash of Mercury Madness returns on Monday and Saturday

Can you repeat that please? For the third and final time since August, messenger Mercury in Virgo teams up with outspoken Jupiter in a friendly earth trine this Monday, September 25, but it’s not quite as copacetic as you’d think.

While Mercury has corrected course after its August 23 to September 15 retrograde, now Jupiter is spinning in reverse. And since the red-spotted planet is backing up through stubborn Taurus, a basic request could turn into a battle of wills. Stand by your convictions, but avoid a dogmatic or domineering approach. If someone turns down an offer you extend, don’t take it personally and don’t waste time pleading or persisting with them.

On Saturday, Mercury will trine Uranus, bringing plenty of “eureka!” moments. With the two most clever planets in sweet harmony, thoughts will rush in a mile a minute. As they merge their innovative superpowers in steady earth signs, put a thoughtful plan behind one of your big ideas. Then, get busy crafting it into tangible form! Making a pitch? There’s only so much you can anticipate ahead of time. Stay present (and don’t get “salesy”) and you’ll win people over with your personable style.

Steal every scene with Friday’s flamboyant full moon in Aries (5:58AM EDT)

Werk! Twirl! Steal the spotlight! And don’t even think about apologizing for being “too much.” A wave of flamboyance washes over the world with the annual full moon in Aries.

Let tongues wag! Audience appreciation is not the point here, but self-expression is. Dare to put yourself out there, unvarnished, fully authentic and 100% amazing—as you define it. Aries loves to be #1, which could raise the stakes for all the competitive types out there. But rather than fighting for headliner status, how about shining a light on other talented souls? That’s the kind of leadership this trailblazing sign can get behind!

Warning: This lunation could unleash a wave of pent-up frustration and rage. Hit the boxing bag, vent to your work spouse, scream into a karaoke mic…just don’t escalate the drama.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder during Friday’s Venus-Uranus square

The only thing constant is change this Friday, September 29, as vivacious Venus in Leo gets into a dynamic dust-up with spontaneous Uranus in Taurus for the third and final time in 2023.

Usually, these heavenly bodies lock into a challenging 90-degree square twice each year, which intensifies passions, to put it mildly. This year, because Venus was retrograde from July 22 to September 3, they had a couple of extra run-ins—on July 2 and August 9. Although this cosmic event is always brief, it’s high-impact and can push emotions to a combustible point. Certainly, this can produce some amazing pyrotechnics in (and out of) the bedroom.

On a literal level, this might be the moment where you build up the courage to take a stand for what you want your love life to look like. Boundaries must constantly be redrawn as social norms evolve.

With “anything goes” Uranus in traditional Taurus, you may be ready to remix radical relationship ideas with some old-school romantic ideals. No, we can’t tell you exactly what that means. Why? Because a Venus-Uranus square makes this process yours to invent.
