Your Sept. 4 Weekly Horoscope Is Pitting Your Head Against Your Heart
On top of the fact that we're in the middle of a steadfast mercurial season (hi, Virgo), emphasizing our daily processes and health rituals, we've also been gaining clarity and enlightenment on what needs to be improved in our personal and professional lives. Your Sept. 4 weekly horoscope will continue to put a magnifying glass on the details, but it will simultaneously usher in new energies with Venus's ingress into Virgo, Mercury retrograde in Libra, and a full moon in Pisces.
Shortly after the week begins, on Sept. 5, Venus enters Virgo, which is where the planet of love, beauty, and sensual delights becomes debilitated. This is because Virgo is governed by Mercury, a planet that rules the mind and prioritizes logic, as opposed to pleasure and emotional fulfillment (which is Venus's vibe). So, if you're suddenly irritated by a significant other or are perhaps becoming more critical of your relationship or spending habits, Venus in Virgo has a lot to do with it.
As if this wasn't enough of a burden, Mercury — the ruler of this Venusian transit — will begin its retrograde journey through Venus-ruled Libra on Sept. 9, where it will remain until it stations direct on Oct. 2 and leave its postretrograde shadow on Oct. 16. During this time, we're presented with an opportunity to reflect, review, and revisit contractual agreements and the logistics surrounding a romantic partnership.
Last but certainly not least, the week comes to a close with a very emotional full moon in Pisces. Though the water element is much needed with so much emphasis on the mind and what is "practical" — a result of the air and earth element recently dominating the sky — there's a good chance it will unleash the floodgates. Sitting alongside boundless Neptune, which also happens to be Pisces's planetary ruler, this lunation has everything to do with our ability to fully surrender.
If you're wondering what this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for Sept. 4 through Sept. 10, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign.

Aries (March 21–April 19) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
Take a breath and pat yourself on the back. Your personal and professional growth is worth celebrating, so try to remember all that you've accomplished, as opposed to being your worst critic. The week of Sept. 4 begins on a serious note, given the moon's journey through pragmatic Capricorn and your 10th house of authority. Your workload is also being emphasized, especially with your celestial ruler, Mars, transiting through your busy third house of miscellaneous thoughts and exchanges and the sun moving through Virgo. Make sure you're taking lunch breaks and tackling things one step at a time. After all, Venus will be joining the sun in Virgo the following day, bringing more focus to your responsibilities and health habits. Fortunately, Venus will adorn your day-to-day routine with some much-needed sweetness, so don't hesitate to integrate a bit of light-hearted fun into your schedule.
On Sept. 7, amidst the moon's journey through freedom-loving Aquarius, it will form a harmonious trine to Mercury followed by a conjunction to taskmaster Saturn on Sept. 8. Conversations about the future are possible, namely those foreshadowing the stability of your future goals and dreams. As always, make sure you're double and triple checking your contracts and commitments, as Mercury will begin to backspin through Libra and your relationship sector on Sept. 9. You'll want to take a load off and turn your energy inward during the full moon on Sept. 10. Sitting in a fertile sextile to rebel Uranus, make this lunation about radical self-acceptance; revolutionize your approach to self-love, and surrender your doubts and fears to the universe. This is an opportunity to reconnect with your higher mind, body, and soul. It's time to choose yourself.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
Someone's got their mojo back, and it's you, Taurus. You're feeling inspired to plan ahead and venture out at the start of the week, and by all means, get down to business. Besides, with your celestial ruler, Venus, entering your fellow earth sign, Virgo, on Sept. 5, there's no better time to put in the work. Whether it's the desire to indulge your creative abilities or perhaps redesign your personal brand, Venus's journey through your celebratory fifth house of romance and self-expression is a whole mood. Keep in mind, the same goes for those of you catching feelings for someone and perhaps secretly strategizing behind the scenes. Mercury is, however, stationing retrograde this week, so don't get your hopes up just yet. Nothing is set in stone, and the moon's ingress into Aquarius and your 10th house of authority on Sept. 6 will likely prove it. Are you confident with the idea of taking the lead? What are you doing in order to become aligned with your goals?
The following day, the moon will form an inspiring trine to savvy Mercury in your sixth house of responsibilities and daily routines, which can be equally as productive as it is insightful. Now, if you're suddenly focusing on the downside of every scenario or perhaps feeling a sense of restriction on Sept. 8, it's likely due to the moon's conjunction to Saturn. In other words: this, too, shall pass. On Sept. 9, Mercury will begin its retrograde journey through Libra, which, in turn, presents you with an opportunity to retrace your steps and rearrange something surrounding your rituals and work routines. The week comes to a close with a hypersensitive full moon in Pisces, bringing intentions that surround your aspirations, dreams, and individual freedom full circle. Sitting in a sextile to Uranus in your sign, this lunation is urging you to surrender the "status quo" and fearlessly embrace the most authentic parts of yourself.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
If you're feeling overwhelmed with responsibility, don't fret, Gemini. On top of the fact that we're in the middle of Virgo season, the week of Sept. 4 will begin on a somber note, as the moon will transit through structured Capricorn and your eighth house of intimacy and energy exchanges. Meanwhile, with Venus joining the sun in Virgo and your domestic fourth house of home, family, and feelings the following day, chances are many of you will have lots to think about and do around the house. Others of you may simply go inward and prioritize your self-care rituals as you should. On Sept. 6, the moon will enter Aquarius and your expansive ninth house of worldly pursuits, where it will harmonize with your celestial ruler, Mercury, via your fifth house of love, passion projects, and recognition. Celebrate your wins, because you've come so far.
The next day, the moon will be in close proximity to pragmatic Saturn. Instead of dwelling on the constructive criticism that surfaces, take it with you and use these lessons as a stepping stone toward your success. On Sept. 9, your celestial ruler, Mercury, will begin its backspin through Libra, where it will bring the past back around for a second look and, perhaps, some minor tweaks. Whether it's a romantic rendezvous with someone you're totally into or a contractual agreement that's still pending, it's time to cross your t's and dot your i's. The week will end with an emotionally driven full moon in Pisces in your 10th house of authority and career. If you've been overworking yourself, or perhaps lacking boundaries with regard to your personal and professional life, you're being encouraged to show yourself a little more compassion.
Cancer (June 21–July 22) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You've got an incoming message, Cancer. After all, with the planet of love, passion, and pleasure (Venus) entering Virgo on Sept. 5 and your curious third house of communication and immediate exchanges, this charming transit will increase the likelihood of you running into your crush, or perhaps hearing from them unexpectedly. Otherwise, this is a wonderful transit for artistic expression, especially for those of you who dabble in poetry. Next, upon the moon's shift into Aquarius and your intimate eighth house of mergers and energy exchanges, the moon will harmonize with Mercury, which, in turn, presents you with significant insight. This may or may not come with a serious undertone, as the moon will be in close proximity to Saturn the following day. Boundaries check?
On Sept. 9, savvy Mercury will begin its retrograde journey through Libra and your intuitive fourth house of home, family, and deep feelings. Have you been repressing your feelings? If there's something you've been needing to communicate or get off your chest, this retrograde journey will likely come to good use. There will also be a mystical full moon in Pisces on Sept. 10 that brings seeds of intention to fruition for you. A spiritual harvest, this lunation will be in harmony with freedom-loving Uranus, enlightening you with spontaneous revelations and a strong urge for freedom. If your journey calls for an unexpected leap of faith, it may be wise to completely surrender.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You're taking a closer look at your energetic investments this week, Leo. Whether it's a daily ritual you genuinely cherish or something you can't help but crave in every relationship, you're being presented with the opportunity to cultivate more of this energy in your life. This is especially true when considering Venus's shift into Virgo on Sept. 5, as it will join the sun (your celestial ruler) in your second house of comfort and finances. Conversations surrounding finances and contractual agreements could come up for review, as the moon will enter Aquarius the following day and conjunct Saturn on Sept. 8. If things feel heavy in a personal or professional partnership, don't add more pressure to the situation. Take a step back and reflect on the lesson. For example, this might mean realizing whether or not you're truly compatible with a significant other or the community you surround yourself with.
Just in time for the last Mercury retrograde of the year, the messenger plant will begin to backspin through Libra on Sept. 9, where you will be guided to retrace your steps and consider your ability to compromise with others. The same goes for those contemplating the success (or lack thereof) resulting from a financial investment. Something may need to be communicated either way. The full moon in Pisces could bring emphasis and emotional closure to the foundation of a partnership.
Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You're making your ambitions a priority this week, Virgo. The week of Sept. 4 begins with the moon in Capricorn transiting through your fun-filled fifth house of love, passion projects, and self-expression, which is always good news for your love life and recognition from others. As if this weren't enough reason to bask in the magical spotlight of your solar season, seductive Venus will also be making its debut in your sign the following day, adorning your aura with charm, beauty, and sensuality. Celebrate your divine feminine essence (regardless of gender) and reconnect with your sense of self-worth. The same goes for those of you feeling creative or inspired to work on a new health regimen.
The moon will enter Aquarius and eventually join forces with taskmaster Saturn in your responsible sixth house of daily rituals and responsibility on Sept. 8. In addition to a significant wake-up call, this is encouraging you to reflect on the ways you can continue taking authority in your own life, whether it's personally or professionally speaking. On Sept. 9, your celestial ruler, Mercury, will begin to backspin through Libra and your stability-seeking second house of values, finances, and sense of security. This is not only encouraging you to reflect and reconsider your recent investments but also to revisit conversations surrounding your finances and desires. Given that there will be a full moon in Pisces the following day, lighting up your seventh house of significant others, this could suggest there's an emotionally liberating conversation happening sooner than later. Cultivating compassion for yourself and others is everything.
Libra (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You're entering a new phase this week, Libra. On Sept. 5, your celestial ruler, Venus, will make its earthy debut in the methodical sign of Virgo and your secretive 12th house of closure, dreams, and unconscious patterns. Also considered an area of healing and surrender, some of you may choose to go inward and indulge in your self-care rituals, while others contemplate ending a romantic connection. The following day, the moon will touch down in Aquarius and your romantic fifth house of love, passion projects, and self-expression, where it will eventually conjunct taskmaster Saturn on Sept. 8. This could breed some serious writer's block or a lack of motivation, but it won't last long. If anything, this is bringing enlightenment and illumination to energies surrounding your heart chakra; this could be a romantic desire, a unique love language, or the relationship (or lack thereof) shared between you and your inner child.
With Mercury stationing retrograde in your sign the next day, this immediately validates your need to speak up about your feelings. Maybe you don't feel completely authentic in a particular community, and it's starting to become more apparent. Others of you may long for less work and more play, which goes hand in hand with the full moon in Pisces happening the next day. Conjunct boundless Neptune, this lunation is shedding light on what needs to be surrendered in your daily life and when it comes to your mental and spiritual well-being.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
Lean on your peers for support, Scorpio. The week of Sept. 4 begins on a pragmatic note, given the moon's journey through Capricorn and your curious third house of communication. Conversations will have a serious undertone, but Venus's ingress into dutiful Virgo on Sept. 5 will simultaneously serve as a much-needed buffer. Whether it's regarding your group of friends or an opportunity to network with like-minded groups of individuals, this Venusian transit is all about the details, which means both parties need to put in the effort. Meanwhile, after the moon enters Aquarius on Sept. 6, it will harmonize with Mercury in your 12th house of closure, suggesting that you might revisit a conversation with a close relative or family member.
The moon's conjunction to Saturn on Sept. 8 could trigger feelings of limitation and/or restriction, perhaps around your emotions or the lack of effort from a group you belong to — take a deep breath and take things one step at a time. This is especially true with Mercury stationing retrograde in Libra the following day, as it will have you revisit past energies or relationship dynamics that may have stifled your joy or self-expression once upon a time. And with a full moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces happening the next day, the cosmos is gently reminding you to show more compassion towards yourself. You are worthy of love — and happiness. Your inner child is healing, as is your heart chakra. Surrender the fears holding you back from experiencing life to the fullest.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You're getting down to business this week, Sagittarius. If you find yourself focusing on financial matters and your sense of security at the start of the week, it's likely due to the moon's ingress into Capricorn on Sept. 4. Shortly after, harmony-seeking Venus will also make its debut in Virgo, and your ambitious 10th house of authority and career. This, in turn, adorns your public persona with charisma. You're being celebrated and recognized for your hard work and acts of kindness in the workplace. Alternately, some of you may be nurturing your relationship with an elder or perhaps even a mentor or authority figure in the workplace.
On Sept. 6, the moon will enter Aquarius and your curious third house of communication. The moon will eventually harmonize with savvy Mercury, and this could potentially spark up an important conversation with someone in your extended network. Now, given that the moon will be in close proximity to taskmaster Saturn the following day, you could either be challenged to set the record straight with someone or set some much-need boundaries. Mercury — celestial ruler of your relationship sector — will begin its retrograde journey on Sept. 9, where you'll be presented with an opportunity to revisit a conversation with a significant other and clear the air. Lastly, the week will come to a close with a powerful full moon in Pisces, and this has everything to do with healing and surrendering past burdens. So if you're feeling weighed down or more emotional than usual, know that this, too, shall pass.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
You're nurturing your foundation, Capricorn. The week of Sept. 4 will kick off on a personal note, as the moon will ingress into your sign and bring emotional emphasis to energies surrounding your innermost feelings and sense of security. Meanwhile, with harmony-seeking Venus entering Virgo and your expansive ninth house adventure the following day, you'll be gifted with the sweetness and aesthetically pleasing essence of the goddess, specifically when pertaining to your long-term goals and travel plans. Others of you, however, may opt for sprucing up your fashion or lifestyle platform, which is also high-key Venusian.
You could gain some financial clarity upon the moon's shift into Aquarius on Sept. 7, especially once it aligns with Mercury in your career sector. Wondering how or when to start monetizing your content? Connections are also benefiting you greatly at this time, but the moon's close proximity to your planetary ruler, Saturn, on Sept. 8 will simultaneously challenge you to own up to your self-worth and put in the necessary work. If you don't take yourself seriously, why would anyone else? With Mercury stationing retrograde the next day, you're bound to retrace your steps and make some much-needed tweaks. The week will end on a softer note, as the full moon will conjunct Neptune in Pisces and your third house of immediate surroundings. If there have been restless thoughts clouding your judgment or a lack of boundaries with someone in your inner circle, this situation could be of greater prominence.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
Healing was never meant to be easy, so make sure you're being gentle with yourself, Aquarius. After all, with the moon entering Capricorn at the start of the week, you will likely feel the need to go inward to rest and recharge your energy. When was the last time you took a break from your monotonous routine? You may, however, be in the process of reflecting on what comes next in a significant partnership. This is especially true with Venus entering Virgo on Sept. 5, considering the goddess of love will put a magnifying glass on the foundation of your relationship in order to highlight what needs improvement. The moon will enter your sign shortly after, giving you no choice but to see both the logical and emotional side of your feelings.
The following day, the moon will harmonize with Mercury, which can be validating and insightful; be sure to pay attention to what's being resurfaced so you can move forward when the moon conjuncts Saturn on Sept. 8. The next day, savvy Mercury will begin its retrograde journey through Libra in your ninth house of expansion, spirituality, and unknown territory. This retrograde transit will challenge you to reflect on your personal philosophy and belief systems. You may need to reconsider a plan of action or perhaps even a conversation that's been left hanging. Ironically enough, the week will come to a close with a full moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces in your stability-seeking second house of values, finances, and security. Have you been overextending your love and kindness? How can you show the same amount of compassion for yourself?
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20) Weekly Horoscope For Sept. 4, 2022
Explore your options and venture outside of your comfort zone, Pisces. The week of Sept. 4 will begin on an ambitious note, given the moon's journey through pragmatic Capricorn and your freedom-loving 11th house of community affairs. Got a new collaboration in the works, or researching job opportunities online? Whatever the case may be, you're in for a treat on Sept. 5, as charming Venus will debut in Virgo and your harmony-seeking seventh house of compromise and significant others. This Venusian transit will increase the likelihood of you attracting potential suitors or connections that can bring you closer to your emotional fulfillment. You will, however, be guided to put in the work and nurture the seeds of intentions you wish to harvest in the long run.
With Mercury beginning its retrograde journey through Libra on Sept. 9, energies surrounding your intimate partnerships, collaborations, and contractual agreements will likely resurface, specifically those that may need to be reconsidered at this time. Are you equally as committed to your significant other as they are towards you? Is there an equal amount of give and take in this union? The week wraps up with you in the spotlight, as there will be a full moon conjunct your celestial ruler, Neptune, in your sign on Sept. 10. Take off your rose-colored glasses and face the music. Be clear with your intentions and succumb to your emotions. Let your feelings flow, as you are healing in the process.
