Skymates, in honor of retrograde and eclipse season, KTZ is taking a break from offering daily scopes. We’re resting, regenerating, and re-imagining. That’s what retrograde and eclipse season is all about, and as astrologers, it’s important that we practice what we preach. We’ll still share weekly/monthly scopes with you during this break. Subscribe to KTZ’s email newsletter (KnowTheZodiac.com/newsletter) to know when daily scopes will be back. You can also order my book, Signs & Skymates, as well as KTZ’s digital products on our site to deepen your astro knowledge. Remember: you are your own astrologer. KTZ astrologers Adela, Nisha, and myself are here as guides, but the answers have always existed within you. Thanks for the love and support.

New! KTZ Compatibility
Key themes: how and where you invest your energy, feeling comfortable with pleasure, tending to you home and emotional needs and that of your loved ones, letting go of what no longer serves, honoring your process, opening up to new experiences
It’s important that you make a consistent practice out of checking in and readjusting your boundaries. How you’re investing your energy, time, and resources may be going through some glitches, and it’s not as easy for you to have as much handle over this as you’re used to. With Mercury retrograding through your collaborations, financial mergings and intimate spaces, it’s an important time to review your debts, loans and agreements, on a financial as well as an emotional level. Connecting with your shadow side will help you know how to take better care of yourself.
Venus is finally stationing to go direct on the 3rd, after having taken you on a ride during the past 40 days through your one-on-one relationships —lovers, BFFs, business partners— most likely bringing up unfinished business and people from your past. Things will still be falling into place until October 7th when Venus comes out of its post-retrograde shadow phase. Keep questioning and shedding the myths and narratives that keep you from true sweetness, intimacy and pleasure.
The next day, on the 4th, Jupiter will station to go retrograde for what is left of the year. Jupiter is currently transiting your area of home, family and roots, bringing a sense of well-being, expansion and abundance to your sense of security and groundedness. These next four months of Jupiter’s retrograde motion will be about the home projects that need to get done, and finding ways in which you can make your home feel more regenerative. How can you bring more care, more life and more love into your space? Maybe adopt a kitty or puppy, bring some plants into the home, place an altar for your ancestors, create more moments of self-care and more moments of quality family time.
On the 6th, Mercury will enter the heart of the Sun during its retrograde motion, shedding a light on what you need to untether and move on from. It’s ok to outgrow relationships, projects, investments, collaborations. It’s time for you to be radical about respecting your need to cut ties.
We have the New Moon in Virgo on the 14th, at 9:40 pm EST, reminding you that life is a process. We all have demons, and when you see a finished product you only see its beauty, but you have no idea what it had to go through to get there. Only you know what you need to get through to be a functioning person in the world. Hold that. Honor that. Don’t put yourself down for it. Your struggle only makes you stronger. The darkness of this Moon, and its process into the light, wants to help you identify and connect with the people and the practices that help you live a life with less self-condemnation, doubt, and devaluation of your value and your gifts.
On the next day, the 15th, Mercury will station to go direct, and things will begin to speed up a bit. The things that you feel have too much of a hold on you will begin to loosen up little by little and you’ll be able to have clearer vision when looking forward, until the 29th where we’ll all be more in the clear once the post-retrograde period is over.
We welcome Libra Season on the 23rd, inviting you to ask bold questions and to put things to the test. Don’t get stuck in your mind, go out and experience the things that you’re feeling curious about. There are mysteries to explore that go beyond the human intellect. This is a time of expansion, and it will invite you to make a choice between investing in yourself and the path you’re currently opening up to, or clinging to the past, and what you have no power to change or do over. Remember that you can’t forge a new path while being stuck in a paradigm that doesn’t support it.
On the 29th, we will have the Full Moon in Aries at 5:57 am EST, and it will bring important messages for you to pay attention to. What you say carries weight, and the ways in which you communicate in high pressure situations will be brought to your attention. Things may be busier for you these days, so make sure you take control over your schedule, not it over you. The same goes for your emotions. Be mindful about the impressions you want to leave on others.
Ruling Planets: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge & Uranus, the Planet of Surprise
Where You’ll Find Them: Hacking a website, filming a documentary, planning a revolution
What They Avoid: Following the rules, mushy-gushy relationships, petty drama
Aquarius, the 11th sign of the zodiac, is known as the Water Bearer because it’s all about the transmission of elements and information. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius knows how to remain focused on a project that will benefit something larger than their own self. Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac, always ahead of the game, which is why they may feel like a misunderstood loner at times. At other times though, Aquarius knows how to put on their social hat and live it up — it all depends on their mood.
Aquarius has a knack for technology that makes them a natural entrepreneur and creator. They would thrive as a techie, marketer, journalist, business person, activist, grassroots organizer and politician. Aquarius is known for having progressive and unconventional thoughts and ideas, so not everyone will necessarily be on the same page as them, and they really don’t mind. Aquarius often paves their own professional trajectory. They don’t necessarily view formal education as the main means to an end. They’ll create their own legacy based on their true interests, which are varied and changing. Aquarius does excellent work on their own, but they are also incredible leaders and collaborators.
Friendship is Aquarius’ forte, because they are quite observant creatures and they love to figure out what makes people happy and what makes them tick. So while Aquarius can sometimes purposefully get on your nerves just for fun, they also know exactly what to do or say to make you explode in laughter or to dry your tears. Aquarius is the kind of friend who will actively come up with solutions to your problems, as long as your problems aren’t super emotional or dramatic. Being an Air sign, Aquarius feels most comfortable in the intellectual world, and they’d benefit from befriending more sensitive types who can help them tune into their intuitive world. When Aquarius combines the intellectual with the emotional, they become unstoppable.
One thing Aquarius must learn to do in order to boost their love life is not fear their emotions. Aquarius tends to intellectualize their sensitivities and even hide them behind a mask of indifference. This is due to the fact that falling in love or even the concept of intimacy can make Aquarius a bit too uncomfortable — they feel more at ease with friendship than love. Nevertheless, Aquarius is a sapiosexual, meaning they’ll fall in love with your mind first. The key to an Aquarius’ heart is to be knowledgable, intriguing and curious. Aquarius will want to dive into your being if you can keep them interested and thirsty for knowledge. And while Aquarius will always seek freedom and independence in their relationship, they still make their lover their priority, in their own way. Everything about Aquarius is done in their own way, and that simply can’t be changed.
