The Equinox (23 September AEST, 22 September GMT) feels like a forced restart for our systems this week, highlighting where we need to find more balance and compromise in our lives. But before we get there, the full moon in Pisces (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) promises one last crescendo before Virgo season ends.

Practising self-compassion and forgiveness is the prescription of the full moon. Explore how it would feel to say, “thank you” instead of “not good enough!” to yourself and your body. Full moons are always emotional, and this one could feel extra intense. Rather than flailing around madly, let yourself surrender to the surrealness of it all. Keep expectations low when it comes to productivity and instead, focus on what (or who) you’re ready to forgive – even if it’s just yourself.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

Getting vulnerable isn’t usually top of your to-do list but this week’s full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) is an excellent window to let your guard down. It’s moody and low-key and best served with a large slice of self-care. Meditate, stretch and make a date to do something kind for your body, even if it’s just a day off from training.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

Have you been holding onto something a little too long? There’s a powerful window this week to let go of what doesn’t serve you when the full moon in Pisces (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) highlights tender spots, especially in friendships. Give yourself the OK to go within and do what you need to, to let go of old hurts.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

After a ridiculously productive month, the skies are writing you a hall pass this week to stop and take a minute. The full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) highlights the need for compassion, especially when it comes to the people you live and work with. Take time to listen, to let go and to heal. Rest, relax and let yourself be lazy for a change.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

The Equinox heralds a big reset for all things home related for you, but before we get there, make time to do some soul-searching on the full moon in Pisces (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT). The power of words – especially “sorry” – will be a major theme. Let yourself explore what forgiveness might feel like, even if you’re not quite ready to forget.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Forgiving yourself, especially for financial missteps, is key this week. Whether it’s an epic credit card bill or a crypto currency fail, showing compassion for yourself and others around money matters and self-worth is the key takeaway for you this full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT).

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Tuning into your body and listening to what you really  need is your top priority this week. While emotions run high – especially in your closest relationships, energy could be at an all-time low on the full moon in Pisces (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT). Don’t beat yourself up, relax, let go, and rest when you need it.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

The Equinox kicks off your home season (yay!), but first, the full moon in Pisces (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) will be serving up all the feelings. If you’re feeling flat, show yourself the same kindness you’d show a friend. Amp up your self-care practices, switch off your phone and take some time to recharge (without guilt).

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

What’s your relationship with forgiveness? This week’s full moon in Pisces is shining a light on how well you work with that other “f” word. Whether it’s forgiving a friend, or yourself, make space to feel into what life would be like if you carried one less grudge, and give yourself permission to let. it. go.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

You’ve got one job this week and that job is… take a break. Virgo season has been seriously full-on for Saggs, especially at work. Give yourself the green light to step away from your to-do list and take a breath. The full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) feels emotional and maybe a  little confusing, so clear your schedule and let yourself chill.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

This week’s Equinox brings a new sense of focus to all things work-related, but first, the full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) is one last delicious moment to take a break. Schedule in some self-care – anything that helps you feel nourished, supported and rested. If you’re drawing a blank, consider what you’d suggest to a friend, then go do that.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Money issues that have been front of mind the past few weeks might come to a head early this week when the full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) could have you feeling extra emotional. Resist the urge to run from your feelings, and instead try to get comfortable with the idea that it’s ok to not have all the answers.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

There’s a big change this week as the Equinox takes the pressure off your closest relationships, but before we get there, the full moon (21 September AEST, 20 September GMT) [promises to highlight all the stuff you’ve been working on the past few weeks. The energy is emotional and intense and maybe a little draining, so try not to fore anything and instead let things unfold naturally.
