After last week's Solar Eclipse, September's intense energy continues. On the positive side, Jupiter changes signs this week. For the first time in 12 years, Jupiter enters extroverted, diplomatic Libra on Friday, September 9. Jupiter has been in pragmatic Virgo since last August, and the past year saw the sudden rise of Virgo Bernie Sanders and his platform of democratic socialism in the U.S., focusing on income inequality and the need for a more just society. With Jupiter in Libra, people may just want to have fun already, so get ready to fiddle while Rome burns.
Also this week, rigid Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on Saturday. People are growing tired of zealotry, dogma, and the establishment, and are finding "soft" ways of rebelling -- opting out and tuning into a higher plane. Old methods of control just won't work anymore. The last set of Saturn-Neptune squares happened in 1999, when Neptune in techy Aquarius squared Saturn in traditional, business-minded Taurus, and the internet dissolved the entire business structure as we knew it. Saturn won't square Neptune again until 2033.
Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Hearts and Hates for your sign follow below! This week's Heart will be valid for the next 12 months!
♥ Living well is the best revenge
The David-vs-Goliath vibe of the past year is now over; Goliath won. Jupiter in Libra can teach us that taking care of our own personal happiness through "superficial" pursuits can raise the vibration of society's energy to something more joyous and worthwhile.
☹ Civil disobedience
Instead of standing up to the man, it might be better to organize a sit-in. Passive resistance to power can cause confusion and the depletion of control.
Your sign's Hearts & Hates Weekly Horoscope:
Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)
♥ A whole lotta love
After a year of dealing with tasks and chores, your attention turns to romance. Get ready to be knocked off your feet by someone amorous and glamorous.
You are wearing the world like a straightjacket. The key to freedom does not come from widening your geographical horizons. Only by looking inward will you regain a sense of freedom and motivation.
Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
♥ Whistle while you work
You are happiest when you're being productive. Over the course of the next year, you will be able to build a solid professional reputation due to your ability to get things done.
☹ Trust issues
You have had a hard time keeping loyal friends around you. Betrayal and flakiness may have left you with a hard, miserly shell. It's time you let people in, even though it may cause pain.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 - June 20)
♥ Creativity and conception
You are at a 12-year high for romantic opportunity, so get out and date. This is also an auspicious time for getting pregnant, enjoying the company of children, or giving birth to an artistic project.
☹ It's time to break free
You may be putting your true career ambitions on the backburner because of an overly pragmatic mate. If you get up the courage to go for your true -- yet impractical -- professional dreams, your partner's control over you will weaken, and you may even find a certain someone better aligned to your utopian worldview.
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)
♥ Home, not alone
With Jupiter in your domestic sector for the next year, you will be able to build the home life you crave, as well as spend lots of meaningful time with family members.
☹ Workoholics anonymous
Keeping busy with all those work-related chores has been helping you block out your existential malaise. Let your true feelings enter your consciousness in order to achieve a healthier work/life balance.
Leo Horoscope (July 23 - Aug. 22)
♥ Get ready to roar
After a few low-key years hanging around the house, it's time to get back out in the jungle and socialize with the lush life.
☹ Fear of intimacy
Your inability to set proper boundaries in past love relationships may be keeping you from taking the plunge again. Remember, you can learn from your mistakes in romance, too. Next time, you will have the wisdom to do things right.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
F-9! Friday the 9th is the day lucky Jupiter moves into your money sector. The next year is an auspicious time to boost your earnings, so get ready to negotiate.
☹ Family affair
Rigid family expectations could be setting your bar for romantic perfection too high. If you lead with your heart and choose your own suitor, your kinsfolk's judgments will fade into begrudging acceptance.
Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
♥ Welcome back
You have been laying low, wallowing in your own ponderous thoughts for the past year. With Jupiter in your sign for the next 12 months, your sparkling identity and confidence will make a major comeback.
☹ Speak up
You have been fairly quiet recently for such a chatty sign, which could lead to confusion in the workplace. If you want to succeed, you need to learn to give clear directives.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
♥ Go climb under a rock
Scorpios prefer to hang out in dark, hidden, solitary places. The next year gives you an abundance of time to rest and recuperate by shutting out the hustle and bustle of the world.
You are a very frugal sign, and believe in everyone pulling their own weight, but a child or lover could need your financial assistance -- can you give it without strings?
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
♥ Social engineering
Get ready to expand your circle of friends over the next year. Networking can bring many intellectually engaging and fun-loving people into your world.
☹ Charity begins at home
Caring for family members can help you shift your focus away from brooding on your own seemingly insurmountable problems.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
♥ Mountain goat
With Jupiter in your sector of professional attainment, you will be able to rapidly climb to the summit of success over the course of the next year.
☹ Voices from within
You may find it hard to share your feelings with others, but if you make the effort to verbalize, at a certain point the words will start to flow and take the edge off your brooding thoughts.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
♥ The seeds of enlightenment
Over the course of the next year, get inspired under the shade of your own personal Bodhi Tree. Intellectual wonder can be found in study, travel, or stillness.
☹ Pay dirt
You may be surrounded by judgy muckrakers who love to throw shade on your pay grade or source of income. It's time to clean out the dreary materialists from your life, so you can connect with other idealistic souls.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)
♥ Swimming pool
It's always easier to move forward when you don't have to do everything on your own. Over the next year, you will be able to gather like-minded people to your side to pool together resources for work and life projects.
☹ To be or to do
You have been working very hard toward professional success, with the danger that the dreamier, more artistic side of your personality could get shut out by more commercial concerns. It is time to forge an identity outside of work.
