We’re not out of the woods yet because several other planets are retrograde, but this is a good starting point.
Prepare yourself as the tides turn, as you feel yourself being dragged along toward a place of decisions and catalyst moments that necessitate decisive action.
Mercury, the planet of communication, turns direct in the Earth sign of Virgo on Friday, September 15, ending its three-week retrograde period.
Mercury is the planet that goes retrograde the most often, so while you may be accustomed to its energies, it is always a welcome relief when it goes direct. Mercury rules important conversations, contracts, making plans, and major purchases or agreements. It can be difficult to move forward in these ways when this planet is retrograde, but as it stations direct today, you will feel a return to forward momentum and trusting yourself to make the decisions you are meant to make.
Mercury is turning direct on the heels of the New Moon in Virgo, which occurred on Thursday, September 14, ushering in a pivotal period of new beginnings. New Moons are traditionally associated with sowing new seeds for the future, but with Mercury stationing direct today, ushering in a brand-new cycle, this will feel amplified.
You are ready to apply everything you’ve learned during the retrograde season to the creation of an entirely new phase of your life that is ripe with soul lessons. You are worthy of everything you desire, and the universe is finally giving you permission to make it all come true.
Your zodiac sign’s daily horoscope for Friday, September 15, 2023:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You got there, Aries. In Virgo, Mercury goes direct! This is an excellent day for communicating with your significant other in a clear and concise manner. You enjoy getting to know your partner better, but each conversation leads to another.
The next thing you know, it’s late at night and you’ve talked about everything except what you were trying to focus on. You can be quite the charmer today, as Mercury makes its first direct station.
This is an excellent time to deepen your relationship with your partner by talking about your past experiences and what excites you about the future. Keep an open mind as you two may try something new together!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Swoon! Mercury direct in the middle of Virgo season has a direct impact on an area of your life that you enjoy: romance! Today, you may want to transition a casual relationship from superficial to long-term, which may include the ‘c’ word: commitment. While you don’t normally enjoy playing sports, you have done so out of necessity.
However, under the right conditions, you are willing to prioritize a stable relationship that could lead to more. With Mercury Direct, you are now prepared to face any fears of being hurt. When the stars align just right, it’s amazing what the right person can do for your motivation and drive.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re a natural conversationalist these days. With Mercury direct, you’ll have something to say in any conversation. People will find your wit charming and on point, and this is an excellent time to listen to different points of view.
Because Mercury is one of your ruling planets, avoid office gossip and politics. If you’re looking to meet new people, today is a great day to do so. Instead of staying at home this evening, go to a happy hour or meet up with friends.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Taking care of yourself is important, but there is a difference between self-care and truly restorative re-energizing care. You’re ready to take a mental health break and unplug from the day-to-day grind with Mercury direct in your communication sector. Plan to try out one of the luxurious pampering routines you saw on TikTok or FB Reels today.
It is important to note that as you learn to detox your body and mind, memories from the past may flood back to try to trick you into thinking they were better than what you have now. Make time for yourself today; self-love is the most powerful tool for self-healing.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You have money in your pocket. As a result of Mercury direct, you will see how hard work pays off in physical and tangible ways in your financial sector.
You laid a solid foundation for your career during Mercury retrograde. You can see the payoff now. You might get a bonus or a raise. You could get a better paying job. Whatever the case may be, it’s wonderful to go above and beyond a ‘thank you’ for doing a job you’ve been hired to do. It’s nice to feel wanted and appreciated.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
When Mercury’s retrograde period ends, you will walk taller, Virgo. You deeply feel this astrological energy improvement today, with the energy of the New Moon and your ruling planet assisting everyone.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You have to be direct at times, and while it isn’t always easy to say what you need to say, it feels better to get difficult topics off your chest. Today’s Mercury direct encourages you to see things as they are, rather than as you wish they were.
This could imply getting rid of something toxic or discontinuing a routine that no longer serves you. It’s best to let go of what isn’t working in order to welcome in new energy. You can do this without going into too much detail; simply write what you want to say goodbye to on a piece of paper, burn it, and discard the ashes.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You are the only zodiac sign that can keep a secret and keep it in your grave. You value honest and transparent deep, intimate conversations.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Why limit yourself when the world is your oyster? Mercury direct provides clarity on how to achieve a major goal.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You have lofty ambitions, so when Mercury stations direct, it’s time to slay. It’s only a matter of time before you attract some powerful energy into your life.

Your perspective is to value what you have in your life, including treating everything as if it were valuable.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’re all about detaching and moving on, and today is no exception. It’s all about having fun and going on adventures these days.

Don’t go too far. Remember that you have family who cares about you!
