Rockstar astrologer Jennifer Racioppi is here with her weekly celestial weather report, including the reason you might be feeling really stuck this week. She’s got the day-by-day Rx to get your cosmic fire going again, through fitness, self-care, and nutrition choices—no matter what your sun sign is. 

Monday, September 10

Mars, the planet of action, which recently traveled retrograde for the last two months, clears the final degrees of Capricorn today. Since March 17, 2018, when Mars initially entered Capricorn, we’ve undergone a massive transformation as it relates to how we honor our ambition, determination, and the structures that govern our life (even more so for the Capricorns out there). As Mars takes his final bow in Capricorn today, moving into Aquarius at 8:55 p.m. Eastern, look back to March of 2018. What chapter did you begin then, that you have a deeper understanding of now?

The next time Mars travels in Capricorn again won’t happen until February of 2020. So it’s time to get the lessons learned over the last six months into your bones (Capricorn rules the skeletal system after all). Even more so, since taskmaster Saturn just stationed direct in Capricorn too. Spend some time thinking back to March and journal about the last six months. If the universe conspired to teach you something major, what did you learn? As the moon waxes crescent, now’s the time to launch yourself in the direction you most intend to see your life expand. Leverage the lessons recently learned.

The sun in Virgo makes a sweet trine to Pluto today and a sweet angle of support known as a sextile, to Jupiter too. To sweeten the pot even more, Pluto and Jupiter also sextile. Whoa. Today boasts some serious cosmic superpowers, particularly as it relates to feeling healthy and guided. The challenge? With this vibrant combination of stellar cosmic abundance upon us, the cosmos are leaning heavily in the direction of the element earth. Meaning that while you might feel uber grounded, you may also feel a wee bit stuck too. Especially since there’s limited planetary influence in fire (no significant planets travel in a fire sign now).

The cosmos are leaning heavily in the direction of the element earth. Meaning that while you might feel uber grounded, you may also feel a wee bit stuck too.

The remedy? Make the most of this cosmic support today, by stoking your inner flames! Work on amplifying your digestive fires. Start the date with a shot of apple cider vinegar, a shot of ginger-lemon-cayenne or celery juice on an empty stomach. If you have a pranayama breathing practice, emphasize kapalabhati (also known as “skull shining breath”). Should the sun be shining in your corner of the world, get outside and enjoy it. Then lean into these auspicious connections. Commitments made today stick!

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, opposes Uranus while making an angle of support to Saturn, the planet of purpose. With yesterday’s auspicious astrological arrangements still in play today, embrace the motto, “Everything is unfolding exactly as it should.” Yet, the universe presents us with lessons of fixed energy, too. Meaning even though things can change quickly today, they might also still feel stuck. Nothing like a cardio kickboxing class to remedy this. Seriously. You might not feel like going hard today, but doing so, and working up a sweat, supports you massively. More importantly, and especially if you can’t find your mojo via physical exercise, today presents the opportunity to amplify what you find most attractive about yourself. Unleash your unique style. Love your quirks. Give yourself the gift of self-care. Lavish yourself with beauty rituals and divine body treatments. Use high-quality face creams and serums.

Third eye meditation anyone? With Mercury in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces, tune into your intuitive knowing. Doing so will allow you to understand how to move past obstacles and blocks. There’s a fixed grand cross in the sky, meaning things can feel a bit like gridlock. The opportunity (should you choose to accept it) lies in the ability to see beyond the current circumstances. Remember this too shall pass and everything is impermanent.

Take a step back, and possibly a step out. Remember if it’s not a “hell yes,” it’s a “hell no.” If needed, allow for extra time on your meditation cushion today.

Instead of indulging the drama, allow for spiritual guidance to present the next right action. Having trouble discerning spiritual guidance? Take a step back, and possibly a step out. Remember if it’s not a “hell yes,” it’s a “hell no.” If needed, allow for extra time on your meditation cushion today. There’s no need to rush anything. Mars is approaching the south node of karma opposing the true node of fate, so translation: Orient yourself to the future and let the rest go! In the words of Erykah Badu, “Evolving involves eliminating.”

Al fresco dining anyone? Even with the post-Labor Day vibes in full effect, we’re still in summer. Weather permitting, embrace it. You may also want to consider getting out of town. A long walk in nature supports you massively. Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus while squaring Mars in Aquarius and the north node of fate in Leo. The message? The cosmos want you to own your unique beauty. Truly. So embrace those lingering summer vibes, and let your spirit feel free.

The cosmos want you to own your unique beauty. Truly. So embrace those lingering summer vibes, and let your spirit feel free.

Amplify your unique awesomeness, and tune into what makes you exceptional. Warning; this is not the time to compare and despair. Instead, affirm and magnify your individuality. Soak up this mid-September beauty and allow it to inspire you to shine in ways only you can. Life is taking you to a whole new level. Can you feel it?

Saturday, September 15

After a fireless week, the moon moves out of broody Scorpio into optimistic Sagittarius. Finally. The moon in Sagittarius asks you to move your body. Engage your core. And amplify your excitement. With the week of transformation behind you and the weekend here, allow this upbeat day to encourage growth. Need more support? Consider a gratitude journal. Name what you are grateful for, and let yourself to savor the positive.

Sunday, September 16

Mercury, the planet of communication, makes a beautiful angle to good luck Jupiter—amplifying the power of positive thinking. Even more so, Mercury also trines Pluto, so use your words intentionally today. With the moon in its waxing quarter phase, marking the halfway point between the last new moon and upcoming full moon, pay close attention to your desires. What are you manifesting? What do you need? Channel positive thoughts towards your most heartfelt goals. If it’s a no, let it go. Focus on breaking down the barriers and limitations to what’s possible. You’ve got this!
