Weekly Horoscope: No Escape, Karma Is Coming For All Of Us


This week is a hefty reminder that none of us can escape the grasp of karma. Our enemies will finally pay, and those who have been good will see fruitful blessings.

There’s tons of relationship karma to work through this week! Pluto is bringing a bucket load and placing most of it on love planet Venus’ shoulders. Sort it out, he says! There’s no avoiding this one. Especially as it’s been long in coming. Saturn and the Lunar Nodes in Cancer-Capricorn (i.e. the eclipse points) have made sure of that – and that any old karmic dues are paid without delay. You cannot avoid this one.

Especially not this weekend, when the Moon and Sun both contact Saturn and the Nodes, making it very clear that the past is done. You need to cut your ties, gather any lessons and move on. It might not be all that easy. Perhaps there is a crisis of sorts? Perhaps the realization hits you that this is a major crossroads? Still, cross it you must and do so gladly – once you admit to yourself that this is the truth. That’s half the battle.

Were you called to change or transform anything in your life? Were you called to rebirth yourself in some way? Did you experience a “death” or release of sorts?

Here’s what your zodiac sign can expect the week of September 30th to October 6th:

ARIES:

You might be a little restless, but that doesn’t stop you from staying concentrated on your work. That said, pressures will mount come the weekend, and you’ll be at risk of losing your way. Make sure you stay on track!

At this time, we are going to be encouraged to think about what next steps need to be taken or what new strategies need to be put into place when it comes to how we view our relationships.

If we have been too harsh, we may find we soften and feel called to forgive. If we have been too soft and have struggled to stand up for ourselves, we may feel called to take a stand and set some boundaries.
