This week’s theme: a change for the better. This week’s skies are bringing the noise to help you turn over a new leaf. Like friends turning up unannounced with a bottle of Veuve and bunch of bags to help you finally get rid of your ex’s stuff, the new moon on Tuesday is knocking on your door saying, “Give me one good reason why not start to today?” Venus and Jupiter and bringing the optimism, while the Sun and Uranus bring a spontaneous confidence to try something new. It’s exciting and refreshing and promising…but be warned there’s a chance you go overboard. Overzealousness is a real risk, and once you start, you might find it hard to stop (you can thank Mars and Pluto). Before you make your change, think through what the end goal is, and set some healthy boundaries so you don’t go OTT.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

Tuesday’s new moon is the jumpstart you need to kick off something dramatic, exciting and maybe a little bit random – especially when it comes to your daily routine. Whether it’s experimenting with Ayurvedic practices like oil pulling or signing up for a regular heels class, trying something new that nourishes your soul (and ideally can be done on the reg) is your only homework this week.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

This week’s new moon (September 7) is issuing you with a major wakeup call to prioritize creativity. The year has been a lot for Taureans, so give yourself permission to shake off the heaviness by committing to a new daily practice that’s joyful, nourishing and maybe a little bit selfish. Lighten up and make sure whatever you choose brings a smile to your face.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

It’s time to shake things up at home, with the new moon (September 6) supercharging your stores of motivation. Move your furniture, change bedsides or clear out your wardrobe to do a huge Depop drop. Just a tiny word of warning: make sure any dramatic changes aren’t irreversible; check with your landlord before you start splashing paint on that wall.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

Got something to get off your chest? This week, you’re getting a cosmic nudge to rethink the way you express yourself. Trying a different approach could pay dividends; just be warned the temptation to go full tilt immediately could leave those around you a little shellshocked. Rather than go 0 – 100 overnight, experiment with small, sustainable tweaks. Try to go a whole week without using “sorry” as a reflex.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Need a cash reboot? This Tuesday’s new moon is *chefs kiss* for doing something out of the box with your money. Dip a toe in bitcoin or talk to an expert to see how your cash could work harder. It’s brimming with potential, but the temptation to blow out, rather than rein it in, will be strong too.  If you’re watching your spending, stay away from NetAPorter or the fallout could be major.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Little known Virgo fact: you’re quite awesome with change. This is your week to prove it, with the new moon on Tuesday (AEST and GMT) setting the scene for you to shake things up. Doing something different, especially around your health, fitness or appearance will feel glorious. Just be warned any super dramatic moves could have a butterfly effect.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

What does your self-care practice look like atm? This week’s new moon (on September 7) is your moment to give it a major revamp. Reflecting on a new practice to integrate regularly is the perfect use of the energy. Your only criteria should be that’s totally new. Experiment with a new kind of yoga, lash out on some infrared sauna sessions or delete IG (even just for a week!).

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

Friends and work wives are a big focus this Virgo season (until September 23  and this week is the perfect time to mix things up. Reach out to someone you’ve been meaning to catch up with ages or organize a fun-but-random group catch-up. A little bit of experimentation will feel extra soothing after what has been an intense couple of months.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

If you’ve been thinking about going out on a limb at work, this week’s new moon (September 7) might be the perfect window to get the ball rolling. There’s a rush of energy encouraging you to be brave, spontaneous and try something different, but be sure before you commit, things will take off quickly once you make your move.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

If you’ve been coping with the stress of this year by burying yourself in work (hello, #CapricornProblems) this is your week to hit reset. Prioritize practices that expand your horizons – whether it’s an Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown marathon or planning your next big trip for when travel is a little more doable. Let the daydream of faraway places create a moment of healing downtime.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

This Tuesday’s new moon is the energetic encouragement you didn’t know you needed to take stock of your mental health. This year has been no joke, especially for Aquarians. Set aside time to get quiet and ask yourself, “How am I really doing, like really?” Listen to your intuition and be prepared to try a new approach, healing modality or therapy to tend to your weary heart.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

There’s been an uncharacteristic amount of sorting, refining and reordering going on in your love life the past couple of weeks and this Tuesday’s new moon is the perfect moment to hit pause and refresh. Making a new commitment – whether it’s going for a run each morning together, or just vowing to express your needs more openly, is the perfect way to use the energy
