Weekly Horoscope: September 21 - 27

Libra season begins!
September 20, 2020, 9:00pm

On Monday, September 21, Mercury, the planet of communication, clashes with Pluto, the planet of secrets, at 1:21 AM. We are uncovering new information, and something is happening based on these insider things we’re learning! Look out for manipulative, roundabout ways of explaining things. People are going to be tempted to pick and choose what information to reveal.

On Tuesday, September 22, the sun enters Libra at 9:30 AM, kicking off Libra season! This is the first day of autumn in the northern hemisphere. The length of day is equal to the length of night; it’s the equinox! Libra is all about balance, the balance of day and night, and finding the right middle ground. For this reason it is associated with diplomacy and keeping the peace.

Messenger Mercury clashes with Saturn, the planet of commitments, on Wednesday, September 23, at 6:37 AM. This can find us learning about rejection or hitting a bureaucratic wall. The rules are the rules, so make sure you’re following them. It’d be easy for someone to write you a ticket. Mercury also faces off with retrograde Mars on Thursday, September 24, at 6:52 AM. Justice will find you if you’re misbehaving, so make sure you’re being expertly sneaky if you’re up to no good, or prepared to deal with the consequences of your actions. This is also a good time to have a discussion with someone about what you think of their behaviors—or misbehaviors—to get a better understanding of them.

After all of this discussion, it’s time to get quiet and in our feelings. The planet of communication, Mercury, enters secretive, silent, and sentient Scorpio on Sunday, September 27, at 3:40 AM. Mercury in Scorpio finds truth and meaning in the subtext, sometimes things that aren’t really there!

All times ET.
