Horoscopes: Week of September 2, 2019

Aries, what you labor in service of is what you will be remembered for. Those who try to ensure their legacy out of a desire for importance get trapped in their own ego. Other people are the ones who will remember us for our deeds, and the only way to be remembered well is to live well. Do good deeds, because they are worth doing. You’re taking several steps down the path of a journey this week—go where you are called. Perhaps other people will remember what you did, but isn’t the pleasure really in the doing?

Taurus, you’re in a long-term process of educating yourself and restructuring your beliefs. It’s a creative process, and one that will still be in play for years to come. This week brings more of that creative energy you felt last week. Develop your self-confidence, so that you can allow yourself to express what it is that you want to say. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good here. The key is just to do a little bit. Once you get in the zone, you can lose yourself in the enjoyment of it.

Gemini, you’re in a long-term cycle of redesigning your inner landscape. You’re gaining access to mysteries you didn’t even know were there before, getting serious about money, defining intimacy...this is heavy stuff. This week brings the potential for some healing, especially where family and memory intersect with your sense of self. Call on the ancestors for help. You may be able to call on living family members for their assistance, too. Little by little, your inner world is shifting.

Cancer, you have a lot to say this week. Conversations with other people keep your mind and your mouth busy! Enjoy the time you spend in relationship. That is such an important part of what makes life worth living. When you are truly seen, and when you hold space for others and see them as they are, that is healing work. What you are doing seems so simple, but it is far too rare. Continue to practice deep caring.

Leo, this week is for werk. You are restructuring so much about your daily routine, your health, or your concept of service. Don’t let self-doubt keep you from moving forward. You may want to prioritize this week, so choose what you value most and start there. But remember to access your sign’s trademark confidence. You are not perfect. That doesn’t matter. What matters is that you’re doing something. Just taking action at all puts you ahead of most people.

Virgo, you are on fire this week. There is an abundance of energy to support you in meeting your goals, as long as you can pace yourself. Follow passion without allowing it to tip over into stress. You will not achieve perfection in one week. You need to accept what can and can’t be changed. Choose something that you can influence, and break it down into a few things you can do right now. The key to creating an enduring legacy is consistent service to an important idea, day by day, hour by hour.

Libra, sometimes your big plans need a few tweaks before they can come to fruition. Adapt to the way things really are, not the way you wish they were. This doesn’t mean you have to give up. Meditate on your big ideas this week. Use your imagination to find creative ways around the obstacles. You are reconstructing a sense of self, a home, a family, a vocation, a memory. Such projects are full of surprises. Weave your way through.

Scorpio, everyone has gifts to offer. Whether large or small, they’re all valuable. What are yours? What would you like to offer to your community? Who is ready to receive it? This is a week for recognizing your own worth and sharing your value with others. Take some time to acknowledge and cultivate your natural gifts, little by little.

Sagittarius, you are in the middle of a long-term project that involves restructuring your values, and finding out what is really worthwhile to you. As you discard some outdated ideas about yourself, and begin to restructure around a new sense of worthiness, you are influencing your legacy. Other people see you this week. They see your value. Move towards people who will help you to build something lasting, a service that feeds your soul and the souls of others.

Capricorn, you take another few steps on the journey this week. You’ve been restructuring your whole sense of self; in some ways, your whole life. That means you’ve had a lot to learn. Throw yourself into the search for knowledge now. You have the right kind of appetite for it at the moment; your questions will bring you somewhere. The destination may be unknown as of yet. Continue down the path.

Aquarius, you have been restructuring something important behind the scenes. This is a week for exploring that invisible something. Mysteries beckon. Ask good questions and seek the right answers, and your inner landscape may begin to change. Perhaps intimacy with a partner is the comfort zone that needs to be pushed, or perhaps it’s an emotional and somatic understanding of your relationship to mammon, the spirit of money, or perhaps you’re seeking a different kind of magic. Look underneath the surface.

Pisces, your relationships require your attention this week. How can you show someone you love them? How do you want them to show you the same thing? You’re in a long-term project of restructuring your higher goals, and with them, your community. Individual members of your “tribe” might be your focus this week. Consider how the give-and-take in these relationships is working for you. Adapt as needed. There is a bigger goal in play here; something to do with your legacy.
