How will the coming September new moon impact your life, according to your zodiac sign?
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You live your life on hyperdrive, always moving forward at the speed of light without so much as a second thought about the risks you take or the rules you may be breaking along the way. The new moon, however, is going to force you to slow down and reconsider an important aspect of your life that often goes overlooked – your health and well-being. This includes not only your physical health, calling on you to reassess your nutrition and lifestyle choices, but also your mental and emotional health. Caring for yourself isn’t a sign of weakness, its necessary to truly take on the world.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The workhorse of the zodiac, everyone knows they can count on you to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty. You’re not afraid of a little hard work, but you need to recognize that isn’t all that there is to this life. The new moon is going to inspire you to consider some new hobbies and activities to bring some fun and enjoyment into this life. Take some time to consider what makes you happy. Do you love music – Why not try playing an instrument? Do you enjoy working with your hands – Maybe an art class or woodworking is the right fit?
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Throughout this time, you will find yourself inspired by incredible new ideas. You need to remember that ideas are only the first step, and they can’t take you great places unless you are willing to take the steps to put them into action. It may be difficult or uncomfortable as you have to step outside of your comfort zone, but when all is said and done, you will look back on this time and be thankful that you were willing to make the effort.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You have learned how to compensate for your overly sensitive nature by going above and beyond in the area of organization in your life. You have to do lists, schedules, and categories for everything and anything. However, the new moon is going to remind you that not everything in life is going to go according to plan. You need to learn that life will go on even if you have to roll with the punches a little bit. Trust in your ability to persevere, you may surprise yourself.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Throughout your life you have often used the excuse ‘but I need it’ to purchase anything and everything that your heart desires, accumulating quite the collection of material belongings. The new moon, however, is going to challenge you to shift your focus a little. Do you really need everything that you currently own? Do you even use the majority of these items? I’ll give you a hint, the answer is no… Take some time to sort through your things, sorting out those items that you can sell or donate. Too much ‘clutter’ can actually invite negative energy into your life, you don’t need that.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
As the new moon is actually rising in the sign of Virgo, you are likely going to feel this energy more intensely than any of the other signs. During this time, you are going to learn just how capable you are of taking no whatever life happens to throw your way. Prepare yourself for some major challenges, stress, and pressure, it may even feel at first like more than you could possibly handle. However, hold your head high – you will not only come out ahead, but you will do so feeling stronger and more confident than ever before!
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
While you take pride in your ability to see every side of every story, you’ve never experienced anything like what you are about to face. During this time, you will be inundated with so much information, including even the finest of details, that you are going to struggle to make a well-informed decision. Each time you believe you are nearing a conclusion, new information will come to light. Don’t give up. Take a deep breath and keep doing what you do best – bringing balance and harmony to the world as we know it.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may not have noticed leading up to this point, but the new moon is going to highlight just how alone you are in your daily life. You may argue that you like it this way, keeping people at a distance, but some part of you is secretly longing to be part of a group. Why is it so difficult to change this? It’s simple really, your expectations are set far too high. During this time, you will be challenged to lower the bar, just a little, bringing it into realistic proportions. Doing so will open the door to incredible new connections and friendships.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The new moon is going to focus its energy on your career, and it will bring great things BUT it’s going to be a challenging time first. You are about to be tested, revealing just how badly you want to succeed in your career of choice. If there is any doubt as to whether this is the right career for you, it is about to be revealed. Your schedule is going to be hectic, and you’re going to be under a great deal of pressure, but you can manage it. Just don’t forget to take care of yourself in the process, as you won’t be able to put your all into anything if you’re struggling to keep moving forward.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may be the master of rules and data, but this isn’t always going to be enough to keep you motivated and moving forward. In fact, as much as you may not like to admit it, what you really need is to tap into something a little more focused on the heart. There is no substitute for passion, and you won’t truly succeed until you open yourself up to this idea. Start small and don’t worry, you don’t have to share it with everyone else. You aren’t tapping into your emotions for the public at this stage in your life, it’s all for you. You can do this!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
If your love life has been struggling lately, it’s time to take a step back and really look at the reason why. Relationships aren’t about pointing fingers or placing blame, however, if you’ve noticed that your relationships are falling apart time and time again, there is one common denominator. The new moon is going to force you to take a long, hard look at the balance in your relationship, highlight areas where you may not quite be ‘playing fair’. Remember, you are teammates – you aren’t searching for a servant to do your bidding.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Take a step back during this time and reassess the relationships that you deem to be important in your life. This includes your friendships, the family members that you regularly maintain contact with and, of course, your romantic partner. Trust your gut during this time, as your intuition will reveal, with surprising accuracy, who is worth your time and who you should cut ties with sooner rather than later. Remember, you don’t need to settle, this is your life. If someone is introducing negative or toxic energy, then it may be time to walk away.
