AU­TUMN FALLS IN LIKE A FLOAT­ING OR­ANGE LEAF. Friendly, so­cially con­scious Li­bra con­juncts Jupiter, ex­pand­ing our pos­si­bil­i­ties. Now our work year re­ally be­gins.

Since Mer­cury just turned di­rect yes­ter­day, af­ter three weeks ret­ro­grade, we may have to spend some time straight­en­ing out prob­lems and cor­rect­ing mis­un­der­stand­ings. Over the next week, we’ll be able to get some per­spec­tive and see a bit fur­ther ahead. If we had a mi­nor vic­tory dur­ing the last three weeks, we now need to fol­low it up with con­crete ef­forts and make it per­ma­nent.

But all is not light and sun­light. Venus leaves friendly Li­bra and en­ters Scor­pio, a place that brings up our more pas­sion­ate and in­tense feel­ings, our re­sent­ment and long­ing. We may get a green light, but so will our com­peti­tors and our arch neme­sis, if we have one. The world gets busy. If we work with the stars, we’ll make it a more in­ter­est­ing, fair, lovely, and eq­ui­table place.

The week­end be­gins un­der a cozy Can­cer moon. Mer­cury trines Pluto, an in­ves­tiga­tive as­pect that has our mind look­ing un­der rocks. We can be­come de­tec­tives, solve prob­lems, and find lost items or an­i­mals — or just un­cover a nosy, gos­sipy streak. It’s a deeply psy­cho­log­i­cal as­pect.

A more out­go­ing Leo moon on Sun­day gets us out of the house. We can fi­nally feel the winds shift­ing and pos­si­bil­i­ties open­ing through Mon­day. Pluto turns di­rect on Mon­day, and some en­ergy be­comes un­blocked. There is a chance we can sud­denly see how power is be­ing mis­used and need to cor­rect a prob­lem. On Wed­nes­day, Mars en­ters Capri­corn and adds de­ter­mi­na­tion and en­durance to all our plans, for bet­ter or for worse. Let’s get to work.

FRI­DAY, SEPT. 23: The mood is cu­ri­ous, deep, and ready, but our sense of hu­mor may feel a bit thread­bare. Our minds may clear and our feel­ings in­ten­sify. Evening brings emo­tional fuzzi­ness and pro­jec­tions; stay cen­tered and check facts.

SAT­UR­DAY, SEPT. 24: We may wake up wor­ried, but the day un­folds eas­ily, if slowly and with a wave of shy­ness. Rev­e­la­tions help this af­ter­noon. Static can build tonight; most of us will be safe and cozy, but a few places spark ten­sion. Feed peace­ful thoughts and help­ful en­ergy.

SUN­DAY, SEPT. 25: We need to take care of our­selves this morn­ing. Most of us are not be­ing nar­cis­sists, but we need to check in and mak­ing sure we’re on track, re­fill­ing our wells, and do­ing our own home­work; other­wise, we’ll get ir­ri­ta­ble about other peo­ple’s de­mands. The af­ter­noon grows sweeter and more gen­er­ous, but the world has an un­der­ly­ing prickly, volatile edge.

MON­DAY, SEPT. 26: The scope of pos­si­bil­i­ties ex­pands as the sun con­juncts ex­pan­sive Jupiter. We may see the best and worst in hu­mankind. Let’s catch a fresh wind in our sails.

TUES­DAY, SEPT. 27: Con­tem­plate and con­nect this morn­ing. Get those dreams down on pa­per and out­line the new pro­posal. This af­ter­noon a new in­dus­tri­ous­ness kicks in if we can stay on track. Go for it as Mars en­ters in­dus­tri­ous Capri­corn.

WED­NES­DAY, SEPT. 28: Mo­men­tary con­fu­sion whis­pers early on as the moon con­juncts Nep­tune; we may slow down, but this can help us check back in with our vi­sion. A cranky com­pe­tence re­turns this af­ter­noon, fol­lowed by a thought­ful evening.

THURS­DAY, SEPT. 29: Cy­cles end and be­gin; like a child’s tooth, old pat­terns are pushed out by new growth. Don’t iden­tify with what’s leav­ing; in­stead find the ex­cit­ing new shoots within. In this dis­com­fort some peo­ple get cranky or fault-find­ing, but the de­tails are not the real is­sue.
