Due to last night’s New Moon, home and family matters are in high focus, and new energy is with you to make improvements to these areas of your life, dear Aries. You might immerse yourself in family projects or home improvement activities. Family is more inclusive or you are more interested in setting things right. Later today, you could have a vague feeling that something is not right. Your perceptions may not be as reliable as they usually are, and reading too much into a situation may even get you into trouble. Avoid, as much as possible, spiraling thoughts and wrestling with regrets or recent decisions. You can feel out of touch. Even so, the Moon begins supporting your sign later morning, and this helps you to feel more alert, capable, and confident.
There are likely to be busy days ahead of you with a New Moon in your solar third house, dear Taurus. New energy is with you for connecting, communicating, and learning. Ideas can fill your head, but so can too much information. Some of your ideas will take and others may not, but don’t worry about the difference between the two just yet. There’s no rush. Plan to make warm and interesting new connections with people, be open to the idea that you need more intellectual stimulation in your life, and look for ways you can improve your approachability. However, watch for taking on so many things that you feel overwhelmed. Later today, a mildly difficult aspect between the Sun and Neptune can point to a feeling that others are draining you of energy or confidence, which can be the result of their negativity or simply your expectations of them.
A New Moon in your second house occurred last night, dear Gemini, and you are receiving wonderful energy for improving your finances and tending to your personal possessions. The impulse to buy something can be sudden and should probably be tamed just for now, until you get a plan in place. Ideas, and especially money-making ones, come to you with force and passion. Receive and enjoy them, and sort them out patiently as you go along. This can be the start of something special. Even so, later today, you may need to get over a temporary hump in the form of lack of confidence, a mental disconnect, or illusions related to money and work. Enjoy your imagination, but go slowly.
The yearly New Moon in your sign has just occurred, dear Cancer, pointing to a time for personal new beginnings. What you’d like to change, improve, or initiate is in your hands. You’re suddenly more noticeable and “out there”, and it’s a good time to ride this energy. It’s also a time for personal re-invention. You are always in charge of your destiny, but times like now, you really feel it. Confidence comes across well; excessive preoccupation with yourself doesn’t! People believe in you, and this only serves to motivate you further to present the best version of yourself. However, later today, watch for some self-deception, as you may not be seeing yourself and others very clearly. You mean different things to different people and this can confuse true understanding of yourself, or you may be giving off mixed signals. Treat any hesitance you might feel now as a chance to slow down and make adjustments.
Last night’s New Moon occurred in your soul sector, dear Leo, launching a cycle in which you are strongly inclined to take charge of personal and private matters that need your attention, or give more time to a person in need or an important cause. Buried or neglected issues can demand your attention, but for some of you, you may need to take on a supportive role in which you sacrifice some of your personal plans and goals, at least temporarily, in order to take care of or help out other people. You might take the lead on such a matter, or if you are the one who needs extra rest, then you’ll push for that. If you’ve been neglecting your psychic, spiritual, and emotional needs, then this is a time that forces you to acknowledge and tend to them. Later today, a minor difficult aspect involving the Sun (your ruler) in this same sector can leave you yearning for more and especially sensitive psychically. Try not to over-think things. Stick to the simple now.
Pay special attention to who you meet and ideas that come to you around now, dear Virgo. The New Moon that occurred last night energized your sector of friendships, networking, community involvement, new ideas, technology, and aspirations. What’s happening around the time of this lunation helps pave the way for personal changes and new beginnings. There can be new friends or associations with groups and people who share some similar interests or a common goal, or new beginnings with existing connections. A New Moon is about taking the lead and taking charge. Open yourself to the need for people in your life who offer you new perspectives, a change of pace, and some exciting variety to your daily life. Tonight, however, there can be some tendency to nurse an idealized image of someone or a plan. There can be a strong desire to believe in someone, but at the same time, fear that you’ll discover reasons not to. Try to avoid over-thinking.
Last night, a New Moon occurred in your profession and reputation sector, dear Libra. Even if you’re happy in your position as it stands, there are always some tweaks that can be made to improve your professional and public life. New projects and goals, and possibly even a new area of focus on the job, may emerge in the coming days and weeks. Enter these with healthy confidence, not over-confidence. Take the time to plan, and act rather than react. You have more impact on others than usual, so use this time in the spotlight well. Later today, however, when it comes to practical matters, you just aren’t seeing things realistically. In fact, you can swing from pie in the sky to negative thinking, making it a less than ideal time for making big purchases and business decisions. Daydream rather than make solid plans just for now.
Your spirit to explore beyond the ordinary experiences in your life is powerful now and in the coming weeks, dear Scorpio. A New Moon occurred in your expansion sector last night, and this gives you extra energy and resolve to seek out new experiences on mental, physical, and spiritual planes. This can be a period for beginning new activities or projects that feed your thirst for mind-expanding experiences. This is a time of increased bravery and spontaneity. Later today, you may be dealing with mixed messages and minor irritations or delays. The tendency to act in conditioned rather than mindful ways is strong right now, and you would do well to identify these patterns so that you can step around them. Otherwise, it’s a decent day for daydreaming and fantasizing. Take things easy, and slowly right now.
Last night’s New Moon energized your sector of intimacy and sharing – a sector of your chart that’s making a lot of headlines these days! Now and in the coming weeks, dear Sagittarius, there can be a feeling of revitalization on a deep, inner level. This can be experienced in your relationship with yourself and/or in a partnership. Inhibitions can drop and there is more acceptance of the deeper side of your personality. Alternatively, you might have had enough of a bad habit, addiction, or superstition, and you are suddenly motivated to end it. It’s a time for getting rid of burdens, or sharing their weight with trusted others. You might decide to rid yourself of clutter or debt. You may be saying goodbye to a bad attitude or habit, or getting closer to someone who makes you feel better about yourself. Later today, there is a tendency for people to be indirect, which can be especially annoying to Sagittarians! It’s not the best time for healthy relating patterns, but consider that you might need some personal space.
Last night’s New Moon brings you good energy for starting a new partnership or committing to a new way of enhancing a current relationship, dear Capricorn. Someone in your life could need more support or attention and you may need to put your own plans on hold. It’s time to strengthen your relationships, negotiate, compromise, and strike up deals. It can be a strong period for communications in one-on-one setups. Take in now, and take action when it feels right. If you need to take charge of a relationship issue, you’ll feel the energy to do so. Later today, situations and people may leave you feeling drained or confused. There is a vacillating energy tonight that is best handled by imagining or enjoying entertainment and art than for serious thinking.
You can be tempted and motivated to totally rework your daily routines now with the New Moon having just occurred in your solar sixth house last night, dear Aquarius. A new health program or fitness routine could be implemented now, or you could be doing a top to bottom reorganization of your workspace or home. Whatever gets you more organized and feeling in charge of your daily life is favored. A new project, work task, or even line of work can be on the table. This is an important time for clearing clutter, both physical and mental. Take advantage, but take it easy. Tonight, dreamy or creative activities can be nice detours from pressures.
You’re receiving a nice boost of energy that jumpstarts a cycle in which taking charge of your life is appropriate, dear Pisces, particularly when it comes to romance, children, creativity, and entertainment. This is a time for making improvements to your life that help restore balance. You are in need of quality leisure time and channels for expressing yourself creatively. Ideas for enjoying life’s more playful moments can come to you in a rush, or opportunities can suddenly appear, ready to grab. Even if your life seems crammed with things to do, you need to learn to make the most of the time you do have for enjoying yourself. Later today, you may be giving off mixed signals, but who can really blame you? It’s hard to project confidence and clarity if you’re not feeling these things inside. If you feel out of the loop, which is quite possible tonight and early tomorrow, hold off. Be easy on yourself.
“By all these lovely tokens, September days are here, With summer’s best of weather, And autumn’s best of cheer.” —Helen Hunt Jackson
Zodiac: Virgo until September 23 and Libra from September 23
The vibrant gemstone is said to protect loved ones from envy and harm. It is associated with heaven — in medieval times, clergy wore the gems to symbolize heaven. Sapphires are generally thought of being various shades of blue, but they occur in hues of purple, green, orange, yellow and even pink.
Flower: Aster, Morning Glory
A symbol of powerful love, the aster is joined by September’s other flower, the morning glory, a symbol of affection.
The Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of September. The deep blue color is most associated with this stone and was one of the most popular among Christians in earlier biblical times. This mysterious, abyssal depth of blue symbolizes heavenly grace and ancient Persian civilizations thought of the world set in front of a giant sapphire during the night sky.
The word sapphire is derived from the Greek word, “sapheiros”, “means “precious stone”. It is a reflection of constancy, and blesses its owner with clairvoyance, interpretation and insight. In earlier times it was also used to increase the power from Venus, banishing evil thoughts. Kings and priests favored this gemstone the most and saw in the sapphire a token for wisdom and purity. According to the bible, it is believed that the Ten Commandments were written on tablets of sapphire. There are many healing properties of the sapphire from lowering fevers, and curing hearing problems. It can relieve pain from cancer and also burns.
It can be found in Burma, Australia, Kenya, Tanzania, Kasmir, Cambodia, Thailand, and Sri Lanka(once a part of India), where it was mined for as early as the seventh century BC. There are a variety of colors they can be found in other than blue, but include pink, yellow and white as well. These are referred to as “fancy sapphires”. The blue color is given by very small amounts of oxide, iron and titanium within the stone. India boasts having found the most famous and largest of sapphires, weighing in at 563-carats. Its home resides in the American Museum of Natural History. As it is in the same family of the ruby, like the ruby, it is also second to the diamond in hardness, making it an ideal gemstone for jewelry.
It is a traditional gift for the fifth wedding anniversary, and has been given in place of a diamond for an engagement ring. Princess Diana had an engagement ring given to her by Prince Charles, and is also the engagement ring of Princess Anne. When wearing a sapphire, it is believed that it will give to its owner anything their heart desires; wealth, longevity, happiness and health. It also can restore lost property and wealth, alleviating long-term misfortune.
Each month and its season month throughout the year brings in a new cycle. It does not need to be stated that each of these seasons have a renewed energy, and a new meaning. Specific gemstones throughout many centuries have been designated to symbolize our birth-month. These stones are in accordance with the Gregorian or Western Calendar. Earlier civilizations of India and Babylonia viewed gemstones as magical, mystical symbols. They believed that each one possessed a magical attribute or property that connected their significance aligning with the Zodiac calendar.
Other interesting facts about the September Birthstone Sapphire:
-It is said that it must be set in silver or white metal and worn on the middle finger for any therapeutic purposes.
-Suspicions of ancient India state that the gem should be kept close to one’s skin or under the pillow while sleeping for at least one week before the final purchase is made.
-It is one of the navagraha stones, that represent each of the nine planets. Standing for Saturn it is related to duty and salvation.
Other September symbols:
September Birth Flower:

“Fairest of the months! Ripe summer’s queen, The hey-day of the year, With robes that gleam with sunny sheen, Sweet August doth appear.” —R. Combe Miller
Zodiac: Leo until August 22 and Virgo from August 23
The gemstone is formed deep inside the earth and is brought to the surface by volcanoes. They are believed to contain healing powers that protect against nightmares and bring the wearer power and influence. Colors range from yellowish green to a greenish brown.
Flower: Gladiolus, Poppy
The gladiolus brings remembrance, calm, integrity and infatuation. Poppy is also a popular August flower: red means pleasure, white means consolation, and yellow brings wishes of wealth and success.
August’s birth flower is gladiolus, or ‘sword lily.’ Gladiolus represents remembrance, calm, integrity, and infatuation. With gladiolus, the recipient’s heart is being “pierced with love.” The other August flower is the poppy. A red poppy signifies pleasure, a white poppy is given for consolation, and a yellow poppy wishes wealth and success.
Peridot, a symbol of vitality and is the gemstone for people born in August. The official name for peridot is olivine, and can be found in a wide spectrum of green from light-yellow to dark olive. The Egyptians were known to mine for the peridot on Saint John’s Island around 1500 BC. It was used to ward off night terrors and more specifically, when set in gold, would ward off evil. It has also been ground into a fine powder to treat asthma sufferers and used as a cure for thirst most experience during a fever. It has been said that its owner, when worn would have the power of invisibility, and that if a thief about to be hanged or beheaded might escape if one was held in their mouth. It can bring peace, protection and sleep. It has also been worn to calm anger by soothing ones nerves, expelling negative energy. They also can attract love.
The peridot has many symbolic purposes, one that it promises growth for the future and gives strength to individuals and those in relationships. Peridot is a brilliant young green and were first discovered in the black sands of Hawaii. Hawaiian legend states they were tears shed by the volcanic goddess, Pele. It is a connection to nature and Early Egyptians drank from cups made of peridot, believing they would be drawn closer to the goddess of nature, Isis.
The Egyptians also called it the “gem of the sun”, due to its brilliance that it would showcase in the desert sun. By miners, it is said that even in darkness, the peridot could be seen, and they would mark the location. They would then return in the daytime to retrieve them. Perhaps this is why the peridot is at times referred to as the “evening emerald”. Today, it is mined in Hawaii, the Congo, Arizona, Burma, Norway, Australia and Brazil.
August is a month in which for many is viewed as the end of the summer cycle. A time when some need to make plans and begin preparing for the cooler months of fall. It is a time of harvest and hard work. Our bodies are challenged with physical work and long hours. This is a time when one might need to search for strength from an outside source or symbol. During this month we are once again in touch with the earth and the significant seasonal shifts. The birthstones representing each month are meant to empower their owners with gifts specifically needed for each of these seasonal shifts. When the human condition falls short of spiritual or mental needs, these precious stones have been believed to gift their owners strength and endurance in many forms.
Other interesting facts about the August Birthstone of Peridot:
-They were discovered first in Egypt on a tiny island named Zabargard over four-thousand years ago
-In earlier times, Catholic Bishops would wear a peridot ring as a symbol of their purity
-In Medieval times, churches were obsessively adorned by them
-Considered a gift from Mother Nature
-They are created from the conditions of extreme heat from volcanoes
-The most abundant deposits are found in Burma.

Other Symbols of August:
August Birth Flower:
The Poppy, more specifically the poppy native to the Mediterranean regions. These yield a source of opium, that in the ancient world would bring on sleep and ease pain when taken in smaller amounts. Poppies were associated with the god of sleep, Hypnos and Morpheus, the god of dreams by the Greeks.
August Birth Tree:
The Pine tree. It represents, immortality and longevity.
Hello friends. The Full Moon in Virgo (Sun in Pisces) energies are always an interesting juxtaposition between holding on/in and letting go, and finding the balance between analysis and intuition. This Full Moon has been described by some astrologers as decidedly “unsexy” and not particularly fun. That may be so, but it doesn’t minimize its magic and healing potential.
This Full Moon is coming up on the last (official) pass of the Uranus/Pluto square 3/16-17. We’ve been working with these revolutionary energies for some time now, so that’s nothing new. However, what does pack an extra punch with this full moon is its contacts this weekend to Chiron (the wounded healer) in Pisces. This I feel is a clarion call to healing and finally putting some things to bed permanently or behind us where they belong. If you don’t know what that is for you personally yet, I have a feeling by this coming weekend that you possibly will. The next 2-3 days may also have a certain kind of tension or even a tangible angst. My advice is to lean into the Pisces energies more if the Virgo tries to make a high tension meal out of you. ;) This is also a great opportunity to pull back into your own personal power and self-worth (positive Virgo application) in areas where your boundaries may have been breached (Pisces shadow work.)
Especially in energies like these, your ability to *choose* will be paramount to your experience. Remember also dear friends, that Pisces rules the great “cosmic ocean” and the collective on an astral level. This is a great time to harness the healing powers of Virgo the divine healing goddess to be a visionary force for good. It’s always within our power to do so.
Happy Full Moon friends and remember to keep it Cosmic!

The Full Moon in Virgo is 3/5 at 10:05 am PST/1:05 pm EST.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Just a day after Venus and Neptune’s alignment in a nostalgic part of your chart whipped up a potent cocktail of romantic nostalgia and fantasy, the timing of the Moon’s return to your romantic sector couldn’t be better. In the lead up to tomorrow’s Full Moon the doors to the past and second chances are being flung wide open.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
With so much focus on your relationships over the last few years you’re ready for some romance this year and that’s exactly what the love gods have on the menu. While you’ll have to wait until March for Venus, planet of love to return to your sign and until July for your luckiest year for love in over a decade to kick off, already there’s a chance and a need to make your life as love friendly as possible.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Regardless of what happens next the Moon’s return to your communication sector today was always going to be an opportunity to give your emotional responses a voice and your relationships were always going to benefit. But due to become a Full Moon by tomorrow this is a chance to get the ball rolling on what is the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
While the Moon’s departure from your sign will take away any personal and/or relationship tension over the last few days, chances are it’s left you with a much better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This has been a reminder that in order to be true to your relationships you’ve first got to be true to yourself.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Even before tomorrow’s Full Moon has a chance to bring any personal and/or relationship tensions to a head, the Moon’s return to your sign today and opposition with Mercury in your relationship sector is set to get the ball rolling. While you’ve got a fairly bumpy 5 days in front of you, you’ve also got the potential for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
As Venus and Mars spend their first full week together in your relationship sector for nearly 2 years, they’re both emerging from alignments that over the last few days have created an opportunity for healing and to recapture some of that old magic. For now it’s about fighting for a sense of what’s possible, with the reality checks needing to wait for another time.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Now in his final 10 days in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and holding the door open to second chances, a bit of pressure from the Moon today will do you and Mercury good, especially as any emotional responses come with a chance to give your heart, the past and unsaid words a voice.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your challenge today is holding onto a sense of romantic fantasy and escapism that came to a head yesterday as the professional clouds begin rolling in. Yet while this might normally be a problem with Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion spending their first full week together in your romantic sector in 2 years, the professional gods will have a real fight on their hands.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
With a sense of romantic anticipation already building ahead of Venus and Mars’ return to your romantic sector this month, the Moon’s return to an adventurous part of your chart ahead of tomorrow’s Full Moon is both a chance to get excited about the journey and to start challenging some of your excuses.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
As the Moon leaves your relationship sector this will see any personal and/or relationship tension triggered over the last few days defuse, with this you’ll also lose a real opportunity to give your relationships a voice. This is an opportunity that needs to be seized, using any buttons that have been pushed over recent days as an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Today marks the start of what could be a trying few days on the relationship front, with the Moon’s return to your relationship sector not only due to culminate in a Full Moon tomorrow, but just as tensions are already rising. Yet rather than something to fear and especially not if you’re committed to ensuring the communication lines are open, this is an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
As the Moon’s monthly visit to your romantic sector wraps up yesterday’s alignment between Venus and dreamy Neptune also ends, with your challenge being to hold onto the romantic sentiment and escapism created over the last few days. For it’s today that life’s realities start demanding your attention, with a need to fight to ensure they’re not entirely successful.
A weekend with the Moon in discerning Virgo might not feel like the most romantic way to go at first.
Virgo is picky and critical, wanting everything to be “just right.” In matters of the heart, Virgo can be guilty of having the impossible checklist of qualities for a mate — one that can never be matched.
Still, Virgo is the humble servant and will go to great lengths to show that he or she cares. Love is in the details and the dirty work as far as Virgo is concerned, so this weekend you can anticipate your partner making sure everything that worries you is taken care of.
By Sunday Venus will be at a gorgeous sextile to Neptune, adding a dose of magic to the practical weekend love forecast. Soul mate love is divine, and this weekend it’s yours.
Caution this Moontime: you could get snared by a “Virgo moment.” Stuck on a detail you can’t abandon, compelled to argue small points with somebody who is as stuck as you. Or suddenly everything is a poorly organized file in need of drastic tidying. Most diabolical is the urge to tear yourself or somebody else apart with criticism. If you’ve gotten too busy with the little things, look to a bigger principle to lift you out. Or try the color purple. Visualize yourself in a bright field of purple wildflowers. Draw your imagination into the center of one flower and feel your kinship with it. Know that everything less than perfect is also holy. The intellect is keen during a Virgo Moon, and it likes useful work. You’ll hit your groove doing something productive. Straighten up a small corner of your world. Attend to an unsolved problem. Avoid heavy, spicy foods; be good to your liver and digestive system.
