Weekly Horoscopes for Queer Women | September 11
The tension between reality and ideology becomes even more precise this week as the Virgo Sun squares Saturn in Sagittarius. Let’s take a look at what the fixed stars inside these signs tell us about the natures of each: Regulus is Virgo stands for restoration and perpetuation. Antares (the heart of the Scorpion) invokes righteous anger. These are two stories about what must always remain the same and what must continually be replenished. How do these themes show up in your life?
Because Neptune is retrograding in Pisces, let’s also think about the chained woman, Andromeda, who spans this constellation. How does the image of a woman chained show up in your life, in the current world? Is it romantic, historical, or obscene? This Neptune forms a t-square with the Sun and Saturn, giving the relationship between righteousness and perpetuation more meaning. What does the image of a woman bound have to do with boundaries (Saturn) and desire (Sun)?
With the moon phase at the last quarter, let yourself go back into yourself as you contemplate these issues. Whatever was incredibly public last week must be redefined as the personal this week. With Mercury conjunct Mars, let your words take some fire. Show your anger and stand up for yourself. Talk about yourself with the people around you.
(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 ♈️
Something difficult for you to frame in the everyday and every night, at the moment, is your ideology. Part of the nature of having an abstract doctrine to guide you is that it cannot be integrated fully in reality. However, the energy you have to do so makes it so that you must try. This is a continual process of making up and changing your mind.
♉️ Taurus ♉️
Don’t worry about how other people see you. Don’t try to project an image to the world. You won’t have control over it, not right now. What your job is, this week, is to think about the meaningfulness of your interactions. In what ways do you create meaning for other people? What about for yourself? What signifies depth in your life?
♊️ Gemini ♊️
There seems to be a fallacy in your life and it’s name is ambition. Change your mind about what you want to represent. You have to do it sometime and this week is a great time to start. Think of the world as a giant ship wrecked at sea. We have no idea where we are and neither do you. Let yourself factor in failure as a powerful means of flexibility.
♋️ Cancer ♋️
Take care of any loose ends at your job. You might have a disagreement with someone at work. Your job is a metaphor, really, for your body. Notice all the ways it makes you feel. If something is not right, it requires your nurture. It’s purpose of it is really to take care of you. Make sure that it takes care of your huge imagination this week.
♌️ Leo ♌️
Value and desire are at odds for you this week. You do not have to cheapen yourself so that you can afford your life. Invest in the value that is you first by realizing what you do is valuable. Are you great at posting things on Instagram? That’s a marketing skill that should be squeezed for every cent it’s worth. Are you a great writer? Find a way to get paid for it.
♍️ Virgo ♍️
Take pride in what you hide. Take care of your home and sort out anything that you haven’t, especially relationships with your family and roommates. Make sure this week that your home life is how you like it because these are the last days of this being a priority for you. Buy that rug you’ve been wanting from Ikea. It’s only $20 and will make you more comfortable.
♎️ Libra ♎️
Write a story this week. Use your imagination to get lost in fiction. Translate the unreal into the real by doing some field research for the story. Get to know a subculture that you’ve never thought about before. Blow open your brain hole and think of your life as a fantasy epic. Design some sketches for who you’ve always wanted to be.
♏️ Scorpio ♏️
What makes it impossible for you to be anyone except yourself? It is your desires or your values? You’ve had to sort out your finances these past few years and you’re in better shape in terms of money than you’ve been for a while, at least independently. The point of this is to make you better at being independent and better at being yourself.
♐️ Sagittarius ♐️
Who are you? Why are you the way you are? How do you support yourself both financially and mentally? These are the questions you’ll be thinking about this week and you may run into obstacles at home. Consider what you’re willing to lose in terms of a home and how it is you are able to allow yourself to let go of those thing.
♑️ Capricorn ♑️
What is your subconscious telling you about the way you operate? If any ideas you have are not already fantastical, then they are useless. Rate your experience in institutions. How have they inspired you and how haven’t they? What do you like to learn about just in the fabric of your daily experience? Space out a little this week and just ponder things.
♒️ Aquarius ♒️
What are you prepared to lose financially? How do you want to spend your money? And what does this loss ultimately mean in terms of your values? Being willing to be in a position of loss takes a lot of blood and guts. For you, loss ultimately creates more power in your life. Only by being willing to be a position of peril can you be fantastic.
♓️ Pisces ♓️
The way you represent yourself does not have to be the way you define yourself. These are two separate parts of you and they disagree with one another by nature. This is because your representation takes social identity into account whereas your self identity is fundamentally opposed to it. Take pride in who you are this week.
