Weekly Horoscopes for Queer Women | Monday, September 5
Right before the Full Moon in Pisces, Mercury will go direct on Tuesday. Because this Mercury Retrograde has all been able relearning history, we’ll begin the long awaited process of applying all that we have learned to our real lives. As Mercury turns direct, it will station for a few days during which it will be more powerful. Attach a re- to all the things going on in your life. What are you restoring? What makes you resilient? What do you want to reform, reimagine, and reorganize?
With both Mars and Mercury slipping into Virgo this week, all that fire energy we have been dealing with for the past 30 days becomes earth. Earth solidifies and earth is slow. Without earth, we would have nothing. This is a good opportunity to wake up from our symbolic journeys, fantasies, and theoretical paths to what is actually present in our lives. How does the texture of your clothes make you feel? What foods are you consuming and how does that affect the way you live?
Full Moon in Pisces on Wednesday will moisten this earth. Virgo and Pisces are both about sensitivity. Virgo is cynical while Pisces is jaded. Virgo is about the small details and Pisces is the bigger picture. Both have to come together to create a working definition of reality. This Full Moon, remind yourself of your reality in some way.
(These horoscopes are more accurate if you look at your rising sign, sun sign, and moon sign! If you don’t know your time of birth, sun and moon signs are fine.)
♈️ Aries ♈️
Continue thinking about what service means to you. This week, you may have to work in a way where nothing is decided by you. Use this opportunity to think about what is your decision and what it means when something is not. This will help you find your position in the ecosystem of life and show you what an accidental touch service really is.
♉️ Taurus ♉️
Your creativity and your vision reaches a culmination this week. This is because you have always and already been creating with what it is you have. You’re putting things together this week and you’ll want to think of both the details and the larger perspective. When both these aspects of your project come together, you’ll get in touch with your creative vision.
♊️ Gemini ♊️
The concept of service is fundamentally at odds with who you are because you’re mainly a theoretical person. This means that it has the capacity to change you far more than other signs. Cleaning up your home or changing something about your environment will have a total psychological affect on your psyche this week.
♋️ Cancer ♋️
Continue deconstructing the language you have available by looking at how it makes you blend in or not at various institutions. Whatever you believe in, how involved you actually are in any institution is ultimately very nebulous. This is why looking at your communication style will help you shed light on what you participate in and what you are complicit in.
♌️ Leo ♌️
Put dependency and self worth into practice. What are the ways that you value yourself and how are these things dependent on social values that are outside of your control? Think about what $100 means to you as an exercise. Is it a week of groceries of a pair of Chanel sunglasses? What do these things have in common and which creates more value for you?
♍️ Virgo ♍️
Your own identity is dependent on your social identity. Think about the Other—if you’re white, this is PoC, if you’re PoC then this is white folks. What do you not allow yourself to daydream about because you feel that it is not up to you? And how does this affect what it is your see as your job in the world? Let yourself just be to become wider and more expansive.
♎️ Libra ♎️
The act of taking care of yourself daily has subconscious implications that affect your capacity for imagination. Everyday, take some time to just be present in the world where you’re not looking at a phone or talking or thinking about anything in particular. Try a new lotion and spend time just putting it on. This will help you feel the contours and limits of your own body.
♏️ Scorpio ♏️
What do you will into the world and how big of an impact does this have? This week is about narrowing down your vision so that it has direct impact where you want it to. This means that what you want in life has to be authentically you. There is no limit to what you can do except that it has to be you who does it. Do the work that you’re capable of and no more.
♐️ Sagittarius ♐️
Being yourself means that you were raised the way you were raised. There may be issues that you’ve buried which have to do with your upbringing. Did your upbringing give you a sense of superiority or inferiority? If you were told you could be anything, you must learn your identity is actually much more specific. If you were stereotyped, you also must learn your own specificity.
♑️ Capricorn ♑️
The local scale in which the institutions you participate in is the most important thing for you to consider this week. Who is impacted by your work? Don’t think of just the population, but actual names and faces. Ask the people you’re involved with about their needs to access your own. Ask yourself what needs to be changed about your alignment to your community.
♒️ Aquarius ♒️
Debt, power, and history are still the topics on your mind lately. This week, consider your personal finances through these more abstract notions. How much money do you make and how it that connected to how you fit in history? In what ways has accountability been taken away from you? Finally, in light of these questions, what does fiscal responsibility really mean for you?
♓️ Pisces ♓️
How does your social identity impact your personal identity? How does the ways that you are seen influence how you see yourself? You’re here to transcend something just by being a Pisces but you will only be able to do it by applying the criticality you are so good at unleashing upon the world to yourself. Get to know your own specificity.
