WEEK OF September 12 – 1 8, 2022
Close that search box, Taurus. Before you start “window shopping” for more treasures to add to your already teeming collections, bear in mind that Mercury is in its first full week of retrograde. As it spins back through style-hound Libra and your sixth house of efficiency, your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to downsize and discern. Pull everything out of your closets and take inventory. A little tailoring might be all you need to bring a few pieces back to life. And dropping the “not likely to be worn again” pieces off at consignment and charity will make it easier to FIND the clothes you do want to wear. Apply the same approach to your digital files. Sort in folders with a smart category system. Back data up to the cloud and password protect the top-secret stuff!
On Friday, your ruler, creatrix Venus in your passionate fifth house, clashes with unruly Mars in your house of security. During this tense square, you might use money (or lack thereof) as an excuse to not give your all, or self-doubt might undo your recent efforts. This harsh angle can make you question your own talent or “worthiness.” Part of you might secretly relish your rogue ideas, but with Mars parked in your traditional second house, you could get cold feet at the thought of “playing with fire.” On the other side of the spectrum, you may be feeling a bit suffocated by a restrictive relationship or just underappreciated. While that’s not carte blanche to act out, you shouldn’t have to endure chronic dissatisfaction. Single? Don’t be wheedled by Mars’ rash instincts. Things aren’t as “urgent” as they may feel, so do a proper background check before you get involved.
On Sunday, the illuminating Virgo Sun eases into a harmonious trine (120-degree angle) with private Pluto. This is a day for having one of those “the truth shall set you free” dialogues—the kind that could involve tears, hugs and unburdening of souls. No, you don’t have to build a $40K soundproof room for these talks; but try to find a place that’s actually private so you can let it all hang out. Not that it has to get THAT emotional. This annual alignment can act as a branding consultant, helping you polish up your public presentation. How can you share enough of yourself to keep people intrigued—but not SO much that it feels like TMI? So, Taurus, if you haven’t posted a status update since your early-summer vacay, maybe it’s time to let the world know what you’ve been up to. On the other hand, if you’ve been Instagramming every meal and tweeting every feel, try to be a little more selective about what you share.
