Kicking off a whole new astrological season has its perks, but embarking on a new chapter will always take some work. That said, if you’re one of the zodiac signs that will have the worst week from September 26 to October 2, it’s probably because you’re dealing with what needs to be improved and/or fixed. Tackling it all might seem like an adult nightmare, but you’ll accomplish everything one step at a time.
This week begins on a more serious note, but passions will still be running high. The Sun in Libra in opposition to Jupiter in Aries on September 26 will highlight both your desires as an individual and your responsibilities to your partnerships. Venus will form a smoking trine with Pluto’s shadow on the same day. Whether your relationship is personal or professional, the planet of love and the Lord of the Underworld could have a polarizing impact on your union. Jealousy, power games, and/or shady behavior could come to your attention, which isn’t always fun!
The next day, Mercury retrograde will also make a connection with dark and fearsome Pluto retrograde, which can be just as insightful as it is verbally venomous. In other words, if you need to pull something off your chest or do some secret research to satiate your intuition, do so with caution. As if that wasn’t reason enough to play Investor Gadget, the moon will enter Pluto-ruled Scorpio for the win. Ground your energy and don’t undermine the emotions that resurface.

These 3 zodiac signs will have the worst week
Keeping things cordial with your partner — whether romantic between you or strictly professional — is easier said than done, especially on September 26 when the sun makes its annual opposition to Jupiter in your sign. You are aware of your individual desires and you are not afraid to embody this fiery boldness but, at the same time, you are also doing everything in your power to keep the peace in this relationship. Could there be something you don’t realize about yourself in the process?
On this same day, Venus’s trine to retrograde Pluto will emphasize themes of power, control, and perhaps even greed. It could be you, them, or both of you, but the dark side of a particular strategy and/or method is not brought to your attention at this time. If something is toxic, think about what you’re holding back and try to prove it. Venus will form opposition to Jupiter in Aries on October 1, producing similar but gentler energy. All of this is followed by Mercury direct on October 2. With time and patience, you will soon gain the clarity you seek.
Overworked? Be gentle with yourself, Cancer. The week kicks off with a gentle reminder of the cosmos, as the sun opposes Jupiter in your career sector on September 26, highlighting a lack of balance between your personal and professional life. This is especially important for those of you working from home, as Venus in Virgo is currently moving through your third house of neighborhood interactions. It could be a busier and more chaotic time than you think, Cancer.
Maybe it’s time for a fall cleanup? Decluttering and rearranging your living space will bring your zen back to you. The same goes for your mind, body and soul; virtual pilates in sweatpants will do. Venus’s move into Libra on September 29 will ease some of the tension on the home front, but its opposition to Jupiter on October 1 could still lead you astray. For example, if you’re preparing for a spooky season, don’t overdo it with fall decor. Sliding and splurging has never been so good, but your bank account will thank me later.
You know what you want, but it still doesn’t resonate with your family and friends. Granted, you’re known for going against the grain, but the lack of support isn’t for you. This is all due to the Sun’s opposition to Jupiter on September 26, but Mercury’s retrograde proximity to Venus on the same day will likely be just as uncomfortable. Coming together via your eighth house of transformation, shared resources, and intimate unions, the conversations you’d rather avoid are now front and center.
As if that weren’t enough, Mercury will connect with retrograde Pluto through your 12th house of secrets, bringing attention to energies that were either deliberately kept secret on your behalf or hidden from your conscious mind. No one likes getting caught in the act, but the moon’s entry into telltale Scorpio isn’t very forgiving. Honesty is the best policy no matter how cliché it sounds, so communicate with honesty and avoid any shady business.
