Your Horoscope For This Week — Sep 07 2014

Illustrated By Emily Forgot.
Look lively, stargazers. Monday’s full moon signals that the time for change is now, and it’s up to you to harness that potential energy. With autumn around the corner, a fresh start could be on the way, too — in love, friendship, and work. (That is, if you’re able to relinquish the old to make way for the new.) Remember that you can honor your past while also letting go of its hold on you. Ditch old habits, lingering attachments, and goals that no longer suit you, so that you’re poised and ready to seize exciting new opportunities. The key to maximizing your potential? Balance. Don’t neglect your well-being as you go for the gold; nourish your body (and soul) with movement, whole foods, and deep breathing as needed. Now, get to it!

Virgo
Double down! Monday’s full moon in Pisces lights up your seventh house of relationships, helping you make a partnership “officially official.” Joining forces with this attractive opposite will be a real win-win, so don’t worry about giving up some of your independence. If you’re already part of a twosome (for business or pleasure) the deal could sweeten, and might even include a new contract or some sparkly jewelry on that finger. On Saturday, energizer Mars moves into Sagittarius for seven weeks, lending its mojo to your domestic fourth house. If your space needs some sprucing up, you’ll be on a serious mission. Maybe it’s time to move? Mars could hasten your departure to your new digs. Family, however, could become your new "F" word for a few weeks, stressing you out with their demands. Harness Mars’ warrior energy and stand up for yourself. Just don’t burn any bridges by letting anger overtake you.

Libra
News flash: Bourbon, bacon, and boulangerie sweets do not add up to a complete meal. This Monday, the full moon falls in Pisces and your sixth house of health, lifting you back onto the wellness wagon. It’s not that you can’t enjoy your Bulleit on the rocks; just opt for a healthier brand of hedonism. Heap more greens onto your plate and make movement a priority. Meet friends for yoga or hours of dancing instead of lounging around. This full moon could bring some major developments at work, too. Make sure your efforts are being properly recognized, even if you have to do some shameless self-promotion. On Saturday, your social-butterfly side takes a turn at the wheel when frenetic Mars moves into Sagittarius for seven weeks. Let the power networking begin: Connect with kindred spirits and look for synergies with the ones you already know. Your tendency to overbook yourself could really flare up, though. Opt for group hangouts when you can and save the one-on-ones for people who have made it to your innermost circle.

Scorpio Unbound is in the house! With Monday’s full moon lighting up your passionate, theatrical, and expressive fifth house, you are having a rare, live-out-loud moment. For a change, you won’t mind that everyone’s eyes are on you. Use this week to really get your name into the headlines and share your talents with the world. Who knows?

Romantically, this full moon is a heart-opener and could even bring an engagement or pregnancy for some Scorps. On Saturday, your money mojo heats up as passionate Mars moves into Sagittarius and your income zone until October 26. You’ve hosted Mars for the past seven weeks, which has no doubt stirred up some major momentum — and some stress.

Sagittarius
Time out, Archer! This week, pause to honor your emotions — before an epic meltdown overtakes you. With Monday’s full moon in Pisces and your sentimental fourth house, you may realize that you’ve glossed over some upset feelings. A heart-to-heart with a friend or family member may be the remedy, especially if that person has been doing more taking than giving lately. Ready to renovate a room or move to a home that feels more like a sanctuary? The two weeks following the full moon are prime time for this. But, the best news comes on Saturday when go-getter Mars moves into Sagittarius until October 26. You only host the red planet every other year, but this visit could speed you straight into the success zone. Make a passion project your priority now, even if that means being totally self-focused and bowing out of other obligations so you can develop your masterpiece. If you’re ready to start fresh with a new chapter of life, daring Mars helps you make the leap.

Capricorn
Bring on the dynamic duos. Monday’s full moon in Pisces helps you zone in on your kindred spirits. Someone with BFF potential could show up on the scene; or, you could hit the big time as part of a star-powered twosome. Action heats up on the local scene, too. This full moon illuminates opportunities right in your own backyard. Keep your antennas up when you’re flowing through your daily routines. You’ve been overlooking the obvious, Cap. The muse is in the house this Saturday, so get ready for a rush of divine inspiration. Momentous Mars moves into your dreamy, creative 12th house until October 26, calling forth the artiste in you. Keep your days open rather than rigidly scheduling each minute. The best ideas will come when you’re relaxed and receptive. With Mars here, your psychic channels are open. Be selective about who you spend time with, because you’ll absorb every mood in the room. Reach up, too: You could find an incredible mentor now.

Aquarius
Make it rain, Aquarius! Monday’s full moon in your second house of finances means a well-deserved raise or promotion could come this week; or, you could radar in on a dream job and get your resume to the top of the pile. Be careful, though, because your urge to splurge will be equally strong. Sift through your budget before you bring home a big-ticket item. This luxe indulgence might require you to save up for a while so you don’t burn through your October rent. On Saturday, fiery Mars blazes into Sagittarius and your 11th house of teamwork. You love collaborating with other great minds, and the next seven weeks will bring plenty of opportunities to do just that. This is a stellar time to launch a blog or develop an app, website, or other digital initiative. One caveat: Go live before Mercury turns retrograde from October 4-26.

Aries
Give to the needy, not the greedy, Aries. With Monday’s full moon in your compassionate 12th house, you’re brimming over with caring vibes. But, making sacrifices for people who never seem to appreciate all that you do? Enough of that! Let those moonbeams illuminate a place where you can genuinely make a difference — and people who deserve your time and care. There could be some big transitions this week, too. Let go, so you can grow — rather than hanging onto the past out of habit. On Saturday, go-getter Mars (your cosmic ruler) zips into your worldly ninth house until October 26. Hello, international superstar! Go for a global reach in all that you do, whether you’re planning a vacation avec passport or giving one of your entrepreneurial visions the air time it so richly deserves. Got an idea for a book, documentary, or style blog? Mars is in your publishing zone now, so let the development begin.

Taurus
Put that bottle of bubbly on ice! Monday’s full moon in your collaborative 11th house could bring cause for a mass celebration. A shared effort of the past six months could come to a major milestone. If you’re not feeling “dream team” vibes with your current crew, don’t hang on out of habit. This is the time to graciously bow out and find a bigger pond to splash around in. On Saturday, spicy Mars moves into your seductive eighth house, bringing sexy back big time. Mars makes you assertive — fearless, even. Embrace the pleasure principle and spice up your bedroom activities or seek out some new partners for memorable encounters. The eighth house also rules lump sums of cash and shared finances. Taking a job that pays commissions or learning how to invest could really pay off. Someone could put dollars behind your dreams — or, you could set up a Kickstarter page and crowdfund one of your best ideas yet.

Gemini
Like Gemini Macklemore, the ceiling can’t hold you this week. Thank Monday’s full moon for that; it's lighting up your 10th house of success. Your hard work of the past six months could pay off with a promotion, raise, or a fancy new title — at a brand new company even. Or, the full moon will bring a wake-up call, launching you back into an ambitious groove. Your love life heats up on Saturday when white-hot Mars changes signs, moving into Sagittarius and your partnership zone until October 26. Take command of your romantic future. Impatient Mars waits for no one, so kick the commitment-phobes to the curb — and stop waffling about that wonderful person who has 13 of the 15 qualities you "require" in a mate. You’ll never know how good a relationship can be until you actually give it a try. Mars can add stress too, intensifying lovers’ quarrels for coupled Gems. More physical activity is the answer, so go out dancing, hit that Soul Cycle class together, and get Olympian in the bedroom.

Cancer
Keeping it real is unavoidable this week, Cancer — even if you’d rather just put up the mask of politeness and shield yourself from the awkwardness or drama. With Monday’s soul-baring full moon in Pisces, the lock is off your chamber of secrets. Trust us, this is for the best. Let people know where you stand on issues — and ask for the same in return. This may redirect the flow of relationships, but at least you can build from an honest place. A travel opportunity could pop up out of the blue; or, you could solidify a collaboration with someone living far away. On Saturday, lace up the cross-trainers and give your juicer permanent placement on your kitchen counter. Motivator Mars blazes into Sagittarius and your sixth house of healthy living until October 26, sounding the call for self-care. You’ll feel driven at work, too, but responsibilities can add pressure. Movement is a must to keep stress at bay.

Leo
Bring on the mergers and acquisitions! Monday’s full moon in your eighth house of perma-bonding finds you playing for keeps. Relationships that have been relegated to the casual/undefined category could hit a watershed moment. So, are you in or are you out? You’ll have to decide this week, or a good one could slip away. A big money opportunity could land in your lap this week, too. It could involve a commission check, inheritance, or the sale of property — anything from your studio apartment to some gently used couture that’s shot up in value. Romance will be red-hot come Saturday when firecracker Mars heads into Sagittarius and your passionate fifth house until October 26. Take the lead in love, but be gentle: Without realizing it, you could come on too strong. The fame bug bites, too. Get thee to an audition, post to your YouTube channel, or start booking those gigs.
