The new moon on September 29 marks a significant shift in your daily routine. What you do consistently creates lasting benefits, especially in your wellbeing.

Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

Prepare for a family squabble, especially between disgruntled siblings who are intent on ruffling feathers. Hold your tongue as you’ll only add fuel to the flames if you speak up. Address the issue later when emotions are not running so wild. Venus connects with Jupiter at the start of the month, encouraging an open discussion. Taken twins may feel off-balance. Your partner might feel like they are giving more than they receive. Reassure your sweetheart by putting in a little extra effort and pull your weight in the relationship.

Whatever the reason, this burst of creativity has the potential to shine as bright as a diamond, so don’t be afraid to sparkle. Recognition or even a possible job opportunity is headed your way.

Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

Take a bold leap of faith with your partner to reap epic rewards. This could be in either a business or romantic sense, but either way, it’s a risk worth taking. You might need to sign on the dotted line, which is fine, provided you read the fine print. Be brave and take the plunge. Jupiter tangos with Neptune towards the end of the month, bringing something to an end. A contract is possibly due to expire. Do you want to recommit, or do you want to spread your wings in another field? Remember that your expertise is valuable, so don’t sell yourself short. The Sun prioritises your home-life. A family decision needs to be made, possibly about your housing or living situation. Find the sweet spot balance between caring for your loved ones and self-care. Your needs are essential too.

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

You could be on the receiving end of a verbal attack, so prepare for a war of words. Focus on what’s meaningful to you and ignore harsh judgements. Keep your cool and if it comes down to it, don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself. You don’t need to put up with abuse but walking away without a rebuttal is the most non confrontational option. Address money matters with gusto to get on top of any financial debts which are holding you back. Consider using an app to keep track of your savings and spending. Go through your bank and credit card statements with a fine-tooth comb if you think something is not adding up. September’s full moon encourages naughty bedroom antics. Explore a sexual fantasy and give yourself over to pleasures of the flesh. Let go and allow your lover to take you to new heights of sensation.

Virgo (23 August – 22 September)

Now is the perfect time to take up a new sport or exercise class. Strenuous activity is a sure-fire way to shake off built-up stress. September’s full moon delivers a relationship revelation.

This month, Venus helps your money tree grow. You may be offered more hours at work or an offer to increase your earning capacity. This unexpected windfall considerably assists in paying any overdue bills.

Libra (23 September – 22 October)

Happy birthday Libra! The Sun lights up your sign on September 23. The more positive your outlook is the more abundance you’ll attract. Expect the very best for yourself, and you just might get it! Venus’s influence asks you to reassess relationship goals. Raise your standards and refuse to settle for second best, as high expectations can be met. If your lover is no longer making you happy, perhaps it’s time to move on? Throughout the month, the cosmos reminds you to ‘be’ in the moment. The practice of mindfulness means maintaining awareness of your thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. When mindful, we tune into the present rather than rehashing the past or worrying about the future. Take your time when completing tasks, the extra effort and attention to detail will pay off.

Scorpio (23 October – 21 November)

This month’s full moon encourages you to let your hair down. Ditch the intense feels. Lightening up does you a world of good, so make time for play. Laughter is truly your best medicine in September. Surround yourself with loving friends, throw yourself into a team sport, or cheer on your child from the sidelines. Rid yourself of toxic people and environments where possible, you’ll feel instantly uplifted. Instead, concentrate on friends who elevate you. Refuse to be dragged into destructive gossip in the workplace or your social circles. Now is the perfect time to get moving on a long-desired goal or lofty aspiration. Sometimes life just gets in the way of our dreams, but it’s never too late to give up on them altogether. The cosmos is behind you all the way. Reach for the moon, and even if you fall, you’ll still land amongst the stars.

Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)

The Sun, Venus, and Mercury collaborate mid-month bringing a stimulating new connection. It’s time to network with the best in your chosen field of expertise. Friends in high places can open doors for you. Put your best foot forward, as people are interested in what you have to say. Be authentic in all your communications. Your popularity and influence are on the rise. Attend to home repairs swiftly to avoid further costs down the track. If you own your house consider renovating, to fix up that kitchen or bathroom. If you are renting, investing in some artwork or pot plants can make your space feel cosier. A relationship has the potential to level up and soar to greater heights. Meet your partner halfway where possible on any disagreements. A scar from a previous emotional wound may become exposed. Work through fears with mutual understanding and loving support.

Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)

Saturn, your planetary ruler, finally becomes unstuck as it shifts out of retrograde. By mid-month, you should begin to feel more like your old self again. The future looks brighter, so it’s time to set plans in motion. Do your background research carefully, and you can expect a positive outcome. September’s full moon spotlights a loved one in distress. A close relative or bestie who has been supportive in the past now needs a shoulder to cry on. It’s your turn to be the strong one. Aim to offer helpful advice rather than just saying what they want to hear. Sometimes, a little brutal truth from a place of love is needed. A professional acknowledgement, honour, or award is due to you. A VIP at the top of your industry recognises your value. Milk a career opportunity to your best advantage to set yourself up for future promotion. An approaching deadline causes some anxiety but stay focused, and you will produce some of your best work to date.

Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

Mars dances with Pluto mid-month, urging self-preservation. Frustrations are more likely to do with self-criticism than judgement from outside sources. Be kind to yourself and practice self-care. Make choices in alignment with your ultimate best interests. Travel is on your mind but not just because you need to break with monotony, no… You’re looking for adventure and to expand your horizons. You might even be moving away from your current city, state, or country and setting roots down elsewhere. However, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. A short escapade could work wonders to clarify where your home truly is. Jupiter’s clash with Neptune begs you to avoid borrowing more than you can afford to pay back, even if your bank makes a tempting offer. Remember the interest that goes along with borrowing money. A friend or relative may ask for a loan, don’t allow your generosity to get out of hand.

Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

An argument with a business associate reaches boiling point. Have your say but allow your opponent the same courtesy. Once you let off some steam and have gotten your frustrations (or suspicions) off your chest, the way forward becomes crystal clear. The new moon tantalises your sex zone. Choppy waters in the bedroom turn to smoother sailing in September. Tell your partner what you are into sexually and pay attention to not only your own sexual needs but the desires of your lover too. Intimacy is a two-way street. The full Moon on September 14 invites you to work as a team. Singles attract someone that mirrors a quality in themselves. For those in relationships, a shared goal is conquered when you and your sweetheart combine forces. Set your sights on what you want to achieve as a couple and keep your eye on the prize.
