Horoscopes for September 17:

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “Today’s New Moon in Virgo aligns harmoniously with planets in the ambitious sign of Capricorn, making this a powerful starting point for a goal or project. Whatever we have in mind, getting organized and attending to the details can make this a great success.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explains the effects of Mercury in Libra square Jupiter in Capricorn. Gilchrist writes: “The crisis between ideals/expansion (Jupiter) versus information (Mercury) will trigger unbalanced communication. Words will be big and very, very friendly…Friendly exchanges can become overenthusiastic as attempts to convince are exaggerated. Social contacts may veer into unpalatable sweetness with overwhelming compliments.”

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “With all the right intentions, lovers may say what they want to see, but clarity in communication may be difficult on Thursday…There’s indecisiveness…during the interaction between Mercury square Jupiter, and an air of confusion. What appears certain can be lacking when going beyond the surface.”
