Weekly Horoscope by Micheal O'Connor

Horoscope for the week: September 22, 2017

Tip of the Week:

Autumn Equinox is a special time of year, a turning point. Symbolically, it is associated with the Last Quarter Moon, with 6 pm on the clock, with the advent of sunset, as though the sun is falling in the sky on the western horizon. Thus, we get the common term of ‘Fall’, the term commonly used to refer to this time of year. There is also a spiritual theme implied, in that this time represents a general theme of turning within.

As mentioned last week, there is a lot of attention focused on Autumn Equinox this year due to various sources asserting that it aligns closely with specific passages of Biblical Prophecy. It is somewhat humorous that it is asserted that the focus is not based on astrology but rather on astronomy since astrology is considered evil to religious people. Well, modern astronomy is not concerned with prophecy, but ancient astrology is. 

Specifically, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sun, and Jupiter in the wings loosely assembled in the constellation of Virgo are the main planetary feature of this focus. These will appear as faint evening ‘stars’ for a very short period due to their close proximity to the Sun, save for Jupiter which is a faint morning star.


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

While the process of deciphering what makes you special, what constitutes your creative gifts, continues, the shift towards living a healthy lifestyle has taken center stage. Adding to this, the focus now turns to the quality of your relationships and personal conduct. Avoiding assumptions or defense, check in to determine if harmony and mutual respect are active.


Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

Creating your home base so that it is both secure and supports your creative and practical pursuits continues. This has likely required a lot of negotiation and adjustment. Having faith in the process has also probably been a challenge at times. Making sincere efforts in this regard continues and the plot is set to get thicker yet.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Things are shaking close to home. Positively, what is simply implied is a process of making much-needed improvements. But beautifying is featured too. It could be as basic as clearing the clutter. Bigger renovations are quite possible. The main point is that you are making way for a fresh flow of creative inspirations and expressions.


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A busy time continues attending to a variety of fronts. Fortunately, your energy levels are probably running pretty high these days. Good thing too, because you may find you have to give more than usual. Part of your focus includes financial management and clean-up and perhaps making key investments.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have been steadily entering new territory. Asserting your sense of leadership is implied and is backed by pioneering initiatives. Reaching out to a wider audience and/or network is featured. This is all part of planning for the future. Taking such leads and risks and focusing to establish a workable foundation is some of the stuff dreams are made of.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)

Reaching out to engage with a wider circle of influence continues. It may feel like more work than reward these days, but that is about to change. A fresh influx of returns is scheduled to begin this week. Yet, you will have to keep close tabs on all correspondences. Expect less and give more will prove to be a winning strategy.


Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22)

Many dreams are in their gestation phase. Yet, the sprouts of new beginnings will become evident this week. As with the growth of plants, once the crust of the soil is broken, the pace of growth appears to accelerate. Breaking out of the seed and then through the crust is the metaphor for the arduous initial steps, then the flow ensues.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

All being well, you have been making steady and diligent efforts over the past several weeks. These include increased exposure, recognition and a process of asserting your sense of individuality. This process continues but now it is time to duck out of the limelight and recharge your energy cells, but you can still be productive, behind the scenes.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

There are indications that your career and or public image have experienced a boost and perhaps a shove. Circumstances are pushing you to acquire new knowledge, skills, and tools. This week, the shift from what you know to who will take center stage. This is a call to reach out and communicate your thoughts and ideas if simply to activate key contacts.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Amidst the noise and haste, you have entered a period of reflection these past few weeks. That theme continues, yet will be accompanied by a busier cycle both social and professional. So, balancing both will become increasingly important. Digging deep has been a central theme for many months and now comes the need for decisions.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The focus on research continues and even deepens this week. Yet, circumstances will also lead you to reach out and increase your exposure. It could be that your efforts are in support of others. You are in the mood to get things done and this includes getting to the bottom of things, and/or zeroing in on the bottom line.


Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

A process of both launching creative initiatives and completing existing ones continues. The launch focus includes organization and preparation. Trust that things will flow more smoothly later if you get organized now. This includes key communications. Making extra efforts in the diplomacy department also remains important.
