Monday, September 12th


Today, the moon in Aries forms a sextile with Saturn in Aquarius. Now is not the time to be impetuous. We must set our intentions using great deliberation. We are taking ownership of the things that are in our control. Our organizational talent is thriving under this sextile. Now is a great time to lead a project at work or tackle any projects at home.

Right after midnight, the moon forms a square with Pluto in Capricorn. Under this placement, we feel anxious and hypersensitive. At this time, it may be tempting to get lost in our imaginations. A little wishful thinking never hurt anyone. But be careful not to indulge in escapist fantasies too much, or else you might neglect your real-world obligations.

As we get ready for our day, the moon moves out of wild-card Aries and is welcomed by practical and dependable Taurus. Under this Taurean moon, our family, security, and creature comforts are most important to us. This moon also fuels the need to preserve and increase monetary gain. The need for financial stability is also driven by the desire to take care of your family. Your intentions are pure and understandable. Just remember to take a moment to enjoy time with your family.

Early this morning, the moon forms a trine with Venus in Virgo. Under this trine, love and partnership are on our minds. We find ourselves in sweet and charitable moods. We are helpful and eager to adapt to the needs of our partners. The opportune moment to discuss romantic commitment may arise soon. Be sure to keep the lines of communication open.

In the early evening, the moon forms a conjunction with Uranus, also in Taurus. This constellation brings out Taurus’s positive and negative traits to an extreme. Under this conjunction, we may be stubborn and hard to reason with. We might lack an inner balance and be unwilling to compromise. On a more optimistic note, love may be in the air. At this time, romantic relationships may occur. It simply goes to show that we are all worthy of love, even on our bad days.

A couple hours later, the moon forms a square with Saturn. Under this square, we feel incredibly restricted. Any openness and honesty we felt earlier are dwindling. We feel secretive and find it difficult to be truthful with our loved ones. We may be filled with an intense sense of melancholy at this time. At times like this, it can be easy to isolate yourself from everyone. A little alone time and mental rest may be beneficial. But it may also be helpful to reach out and talk to someone when you feel ready.

Thursday, September 15th


In the wee hours of the morning, the sun in Virgo forms a magnificent trine with the moon. This constellation brings joy into our lives. Together, these signs crave partnership and harmony. We are getting along with our family, community, partners, and most importantly, ourselves. Not only are we nurturing our relationships, but we are also taking care of ourselves physically and mentally.

A few hours later, the moon forms a sextile with Neptune in Pisces. Under this trine, our minds are active and enthusiastic. We have been sensitive to the needs and emotions of those around us, but now we are sensitive to our own needs and desires. We can use it to indulge our artistic interests. Now is a wonderful time to work on our passion projects and fulfill ourselves spiritually and creatively.

Around breakfast time, the moon forms a trine with Pluto in curious Capricorn. We are feeling a lot of emotions right now. Others may not understand our feelings, but that does not matter as long as we understand them. We have a desire to have new experiences and travel to new places. Satisfy your curiosity. Set out on an adventure.

This afternoon, the moon moves into inquisitive Gemini. Under this moon, our mental faculties are sharpened. We are curious and sympathetic. We are ready to have new experiences and meet new people. This is a wonderful time to network and meet someone who may open doors for us. We are open to new possibilities and are willing to learn and achieve all opportunities.

Friday, September 16th


In the early morning, the moon forms a sextile with Jupiter in Aries. This placement is giving us an optimistic outlook. We are reveling in our popularity and success. We feel beautiful from the inside out and appreciate all the beauty around us. Now is a great time to build upon the intentions we set and the plans we made earlier. It is also a good time to spread the love around and direct your energy towards philanthropic causes.

Later this morning, the moon forms a trine with Mercury in Libra. Under this trine, we are open-minded and willing to learn. Our minds are sharp, and our speech is clear. We think for ourselves and do our own research rather than blindly believing what we are told. At this time, we can easily influence others with our charisma and leadership qualities. However, we must wield this power with great discernment. We want to keep our influence a positive one.

Around dinner time, the moon forms a conjunction with Mars in Gemini. Under this conjunction, we feel on edge and irritable. We must be mindful of these tendencies, or else we can become argumentative or, in the worst cases, violent. Exercise and meditation can aid in our stress relief since this transit can cause emotional and physical tension.

About thirty minutes later, the moon forms a square with Venus. Under this square, both signs’ flirtatious natures are inhibited. We may be trying to force passion into our relationship rather than letting it happen naturally. We may need to step back and give our partner some space.
