Unpredictability looks like it will reign all week, but unexpected events will prove most fortunate

The astrological storm raging over our heads has manifested in our human experience with hurricanes and earthquakes on an unparalleled scale. Indeed, there have been many more examples of extreme weather throughout the world that haven't been extensively reported. For you as an individual, however, all this turbulent astrological energy can be used to your advantage. The key is to stay positive, upbeat and determined.

Kick fear out the door.

The Fall Equinox has opened an exciting new chapter of exciting possibilities for you. Life is exhilarating. It's a wonderful adventure.

The week begins with Mercury bumping into a dynamic alignment with Saturn, so do be prepared for traffic jams and glitches involving travel, transportation, technology and schedules. Communications will be affected too. Be extra articulate when expressing yourself and be careful to not jump to wrong conclusions in response to what you hear.

In fact, unpredictability looks like it will reign all week. Mercury meets up with Uranus on Thursday. That will speed up life, as if it weren't moving fast enough already. That's okay. It'll fast track you to the success you are craving.

The Moon is waxing into the First Quarter phase on Wednesday/Thursday depending on your time zone. It's all systems go. Pluto this week reaches a crescendo of power. He was known as Hades in ancient Greece. He was the Lord of the Underworld. Not exactly the kind of person you want to hang out with. He's a serious kind of guy and he doesn't laugh much, if ever. Sounds scary, but when approached with the right attitude, he will show you how to make money and get what you want in life. Stay on his good side and he'll protect you and make you powerful.

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, September 25, 2017.

Aries

It's one of those strange quirks of life that some of those who oppose you do actually respect you. And among those that you count as friends, there might be one that secretly resents you. A tense cosmic scenario has created a challenging situation, yet it is, actually, doing you a great favour. It all seems rather complicated and indeed it is, but you can depend on your currently enhanced intuition to help you see through a certain ambiguous and convoluted scenario.

Taurus

A few worrisome difficulties have emerged in your life. That's the bad news. The good news is that they are helping you identify factors that require improvement. You may not be enjoying the challenges you face, but they are engendering your determination to succeed. It won't be much longer before you see the tangible benefits you have gained as a result your arduous labour. A mood of concern will be replaced by great excitement and enthusiasm.

Gemini

You are being unduly pessimistic about your chances of finding a way around a seemingly impossible impasse. What's the use of worrying. It doesn't do any good. With a little hard work, optimism and some innovative thinking, you'll get the desired results. Stay tuned to your intuitive source. It is essential to stick patiently with your main plan, so that it gets a fair chance to work. You will soon be given plenty of reasons to feel very encouraged and excited about some good news.

Cancer

A certain emotional disturbance within you is huffing and puffing like a volcano. It's hard to know how long this will continue or how intense it will become. Let it rumble on. All will be fine. You are on the right track. Something is guiding you to a happy outcome. What you are now so close to discovering about yourself will bring a positive shift in your life. You can be whatever you want to be. Hold on to that big dream of yours.

Leo

An object of your desire is tantalizingly close, yet continues to remain just beyond your reach. Some input and assistance from a surprising source will bring reassurance. It will come from someone in your immediate environment who normally doesn't say much. Listen and you'll discover how you can finally take hold of a coveted prize.

Virgo

A magical moment of liberation is coming up. It would be nice to know a specific day and time for this triumphant occasion, but the stars are rarely forthcoming on such specifics. It's for them to know and for you to keep guessing. For the time being, resolve to stay above the madness that surrounds you. Keep your attitude proactive and positive. You'll yet reach a precious goal that means so much to you.

Libra

Now that we've crossed over the threshold of the Fall Equinox, some useful and encouraging information will come to your attention that will help diffuse an overwrought situation. A moment of silence will allow you to step back from your worries and get a breath of fresh air and inspiration. A very good idea is just waiting to pop out of your intuitive core into your awareness. And when it does, you'll wonder why you never thought of it before.

Scorpio

Aggravation and uncertainty must not be allowed to disturb your equilibrium. Getting nervous is all right as long as it doesn't turn into unease and apprehension. Beware of negative emotions getting the better of you for it will block your contact with the benevolent force that is reaching out to you. Face your fears head on. Growl at them. Kick their butt! Courage and toughness will empower your cause. The benevolent source will lead you to happiness and fulfilment.

Sagittarius

You have been half hoping, half fearing that something important will emerge out of a development that was ostensibly problematic. Is it good or is it bad? The bad news is that your suspicions have been confirmed. The good news is that there is nothing to fear. A thorny situation will turn into your distinct advantage as you find a way of steering it out of trouble. It's important to be certain of what you want. If you are, the Universe will direct this process in the right direction.

Capricorn

Positive developments are happening. It's necessary to recognize and acknowledge them - even if they seem minor and insignificant. Understanding the impact and ramifications of all that has recently transpired will take a little time. Once it sinks in – watch out! You will experience a surge in personal power. Everything is not only working out well, it will outstrip your expectations.

Aquarius

Hope is good, but if it goes on for long without any concrete developments, doubt begins to take root. We begin to wonder if our vision is just a pipe dream.  Let not your heart be troubled. A big dream you are chasing after is based on a fundamentally solid foundation. There is cosmic evidence that material conditions favour your cause. If you feel inclined to press a point than to leave things as they are, you are on the right track. A determined and decisive move will put things on a more solid framework and secure footing.

Pisces

The problem you are now dealing with is not as daunting as it appears. If you don't overreact or get anxious about it, you'll discover a solution. In fact, you'll wonder why you didn't think of it before. This sort of enhancement to your prospects is rather rare. When this opportunity for advancement comes, you won't be a doubting Thomas. It's something that is destined to turn into something quite amazing.
