Forecast for Sept. 9-22

By Cortney Litwin / Special to The Malibu Times

Romance begins the week on a whimsical note as Mars dances with imaginative Neptune on the 9th. But the most compelling influence between now and Oct. 1 is the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Pisces. This expansive (if unpredictable) influence favors activities that promote your spirituality, compassion and personal growth. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will especially feel the winds of change. For everyone, inner restlessness can produce a shift in your outer life. In the meantime, Mercury and Pluto turning direct on Sept. 12 and 13, respectively, help communications and business transactions move forward. Mars entering Scorpio on the 14th will help you get in touch with (and take action on) your passion. The sun opposing Jupiter and Uranus around the 21st can produce an unexpected situation. Finally, the sun entering Libra on the 22nd heralds the autumnal equinox.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that too.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction can make you unusually antsy for a change in your personal life. Also, whatever is hidden in your unconscious is being illuminated, making this an excellent time to take up meditation, therapy or dream analysis.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

As the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction transforms your social life, some acquaintances may fall away as new people enter your life. It’s also time to reassess your aspirations, and perhaps take up a cause close to your heart.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Your career goals will undergo a change during the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, which can bring a new (surprising?) opportunity to expand your work. You’ll probably want more autonomy, too, which may rattle some authoritarian cages.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

As the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction expands your vision for the future, it’s time to reassess your direction by getting in touch with your inner guidance. Expanding your knowledge through education and travel can bring satisfaction, too.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction will help you become aware of (and release) emotional blocks that keep you from moving forward. It can also help you achieve financial freedom through an investor, business partner or paying off a debt.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

As the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction produces a partnership wake-up call, you may find yourself needing more freedom in your relationship, or attracting a different kind of paramour if you’re solo. An unexpected business partnership may present itself, too.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction can prompt you to initiate some changes in your work so you have more freedom to do your own thing. It’s also time to reassess your diet and exercise routine, but be careful of going to extremes if you want to make a change.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Romance will have an exciting (if unpredictable) vibe during the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, which may bring in some unusual situations. Also, your creativity will be exceptionally inspired, so look for opportunities to showcase your talents.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your need for freedom and adventure will be over the top during the the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction. Look for opportunities to explore and expand your skills, knowledge and personal growth. Your home environment will likely undergo a change as well.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction can inspire some innovative-even brilliant-ideas, so be open to some electrifying mental energy coming your way. Travel may produce some unusual, unsettling or enlightening situations, too.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your talent for innovation may bring a moneymaking opportunity during the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, as long as it’s (somewhat) grounded in reality. Conversely, an impromptu spending spree can be your undoing, so spend wisely.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in your sign is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to embrace your uniqueness and truly express what’s in your heart and mind. Now is the time to expand upon your direction by embarking on your true path.
