Daily horoscope for September 17, 2021

General Daily Insight for September 17, 2021

We are caught between a number of ricocheting energies today that could bump us up against some surprising restrictions. The temperamental Moon forms a tense square against desirous Venus just after midnight, brewing some late-night issues. These issues could then lead into the early morning as Venus squares icy Saturn, putting a limit on pleasure so that we can’t seem to reach satisfaction. Unexpected events are in store when the Moon squares rebellious Uranus at 12:45 pm EST, reminding us that, really, we’re just along for the ride.



March 21-April 19

You probably have some ideas about how you would like to spend your day and which pleasures you would like to pursue, but reality may have a very different idea. Sober Saturn is acting up in your social sector, hitting the pause button on any exciting adventures by forcing you to go along with the group when you might prefer to fly solo. Although this may be tough for your independent self to accept, it's only temporary.



April 20-May 20

Work is probably going to come first and foremost on your list of priorities today, even if you aren’t the one putting it there. Although you might have your sights set on more pleasurable activities with an intriguing partner, that’s no guarantee of anything. A supervisor or a certain responsibility could require you to put in extra hours, getting in the way of your fun and freedom. A raincheck may be required, but at least you'll have something to look forward to.


May 21-June 20

It’s important to stand by your beliefs, but today you might find that your beliefs and values come up against someone else’s opinions, and you’ll have to decide just how important it is for you to stick to your guns. If you’re willing to put up a fight and defend your ideals, then more power to you. However, you could also decide the fight simply isn’t worth it and retreat for greener pastures. Do whatever is easiest for you and kinder to your spirit.


June 21-July 22

Although you may be up for a fun and uplifting experience today, you could also feel as though something or someone is trying to put a damper on your spirits. Pleasure-loving Venus in your enjoyment sector is receiving a cold check from sober Saturn in your intimacy sector, so any attempts at bringing something exciting into your life will probably be extinguished quicker than you would like. Be patient -- this trend is only temporary and good things will come your way again.


July 23-August 22

An obligation or matter at home might take up all your energy today. Perhaps a family member or roommate decides to cause some drama, or maybe you intend to have a nice, quiet evening at home and it turns out to be anything but. It can be difficult to find perspective when you're thrown into this kind of energy, but it'll help to realize that you aren’t the only one with an opinion at the moment and everyone is just trying to be heard.


August 23-September 22

You may normally get through life relatively easily by managing people and situations with a resilient and polite outlook. Today, however, no matter how much you try to smooth things over, people just might not be swimming in your direction, and you could end up snapping at someone in the process. Try not to lose your temper, even if someone loses theirs at you. Two wrongs don’t make a right no matter how much you think you can justify it.


September 23-October 22

An unfortunate truth is that fun often costs money. Today you might have to examine your budget, especially with regards to something that you normally really enjoy throwing money at. Perhaps your pampering manicures or massages are costing you more than you can afford, or maybe you need to start being more serious with how you save. Implement a plan today that aims to balance your spending between the things you need and the things you want.


October 23-November 21

Even if you feel like you’ve been riding high on a wave lately, today there might be a moment or two that knock you down a peg. Karmic Saturn is interacting in a difficult way with Venus, who is currently in your sign, so her normal gifts and bounty are going to be dimmed for the day. The pleasure cruise will return soon enough, but accept that it’s out to sea for the moment and use this time to rest instead.


November 22-December 21

Your daydreams can take you places, and it’s perfectly fine to give yourself over to flights of fancy every once in a while. Today, however, unrealistic visions could lead you into rather difficult territory, so be careful about donning those rose-colored glasses. While you think you’re off in some magical wonderland, the world will be moving on without you, and people won’t be thrilled that you’ve decided to sit this one out. Do your best to be accountable to yourself and to others.


December 22-January 19

This is the kind of day that could bring one limitation after another into your life, making you feel like a pinball, bouncing off everything in sight. It will be hard to ignore all the work and responsibilities you have waiting, because the more you try to avoid them, the louder they will call your name. Your smartest move is to roll up your sleeves and get to work -- you can get back to fun tomorrow without any roadblocks standing in your way.


January 20-February 18

Try not to trip yourself up today, because it will be easier than usual to stick your foot in your mouth or make an awkward move when you’re trying to impress someone. Stodgy Saturn in your self-expression sector will bump up against Venus in your public image sector, so your usual approach won’t likely pay off like it normally does. Hold off on making any important presentations or pitches for a few days, because you’ll be better received under softer skies.


February 19-March 20

It might feel like there is a wall of glass between you and the rest of the world today -- like no matter how close you try and get to people, there is still something separating you. Instead of letting this get you down or make you feel isolated, try to purposefully do your own thing today, taking time for you and only you. Doing something that broadens your mind could be especially enriching, like taking in a bit of culture or learning something new on your own time.
