Forecast for Sept. 11-24

The emphasis continues on twosome trysts, fair play and cooperation as Mercury, Venus and Mars transit through Libra. The sun joins the artsy trio when it enters Libra on the 22nd, but then Venus leaves the party when it transits into sexy Scorpio the next day. Additionally, Neptune casts an idealistic glow over relationships and communications over the next two weeks. Just watch out for the sun-Uranus opposition on the 12th and the sun-Pluto clash on the 20th, both of which can prompt extreme behavior. The energizing harvest full moon on the 15th encourages an attitude of thankfulness. However, one influence we might not be so thankful for is Mercury turning retrograde on the 24th, which can create chaos in communications through Oct. 14.
