Each zodiac sign’s horoscope for September 15, 2023, is here with Mercury retrograde ending today. The New Moon was yesterday, and we have the Moon entering Libra later this afternoon. Another astrological change is our planet of communication returning to direct mode.
Communication may still feel a bit ‘wonky’ as Mercury goes through the shadow period — the degrees it back peddled into. But this is a good time to review and then do it. It’s always good to exercise caution when making decisions, but at least the stars are on our side until the next Merc rx cycle.
