Weekly Horoscopes September 12th – 18th, 2022. Brought to you by our friend Kelli Fox at Astrology.TV

The first part of this week abounds with relatively stable, grounded energy, particularly from lunar influences on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This is a good period for getting on with routine hard work, chores, and daily responsibilities.

Friday, however, brings a much more difficult vibe. An ill-tempered Venus-Mars square brings some quite toxic communication issues and a definite lack of respect. Meanwhile, the Sun opposes Neptune, so egos get in the way of easy resolution – and someone may not be telling the whole truth.

On Sunday, Mercury opposes Jupiter, both retrograde, so any tech mishaps or communication breakdowns are likely to be amplified. Success goes to those who can best control their frustration, helped by a constructive Sun-Pluto trine as the week draws to a close.
