There is a new moon on the rise and Venus is on the move, in the week starting Monday September 6.

What does this mean in astrological terms?

Astrologist Patrick Arundell explains in your weekly horoscope.

Aries 21 March – 20 April

This week will be truly empowering, encouraging you to do something you’ve been putting off for a while. The earlier the better though, with a New Moon in Virgo enabling you to be organised and on the ball. You’ll be ready to put intense energy into doing something fresh and innovative. As Venus sashays into Scorpio, money and romance become very compelling too.

Taurus 21 April – 21 May

A romance could get off to a powerful start, as the New Moon inspires you to make your feelings known to each other. The same might be true of a business idea or creative enterprise that crackles with promise. Whatever you begin can transform and revolutionise your life in more ways than one. From midweek, a love bond may sizzle with true passion.

Gemini 22 May – 21 June

Powerful decisions can move things forward at home. You’ll be guided to take actions that get results. Been pondering a move? You may decide to go for it and start making preparations. If you are tired of your current location, you’ll be looking for one that offers so much more. You’ll also be ready for a change of lifestyle that could encourage you to eat more holistically.

Cancer 22 June – 23 July

Empower your thinking with enough emotion, and a plan or project could take off. The start of the week brings dynamic aspects together, helping you to push through obstacles and move towards a goal or dream. Ingenuity and creativity can combine to help you on your way. But this is also a chance for a big romance to take off, and it might have soulmate potential too.

Leo 24 July – 23 August

Give and you will receive. With a sterling emphasis on your money zone and sector of resources, your generosity, whether in big or small ways, will not go unnoticed. In fact, something you do for the love of it with no expectation of return could greatly reward you. If you’re launching a new project, it can take off almost immediately and turn out to be lucrative.

Virgo 24 August – 23 September

This is a top-notch week for you, with some potent aspects giving you a powerful boost. The New Moon in your sign early on could assist you in making a fresh start that builds instant momentum. If you have a sound plan, then nothing can stop it from being a success. With luscious Venus moving into Scorpio, you’ll have the charm to negotiate anything with ease.

Libra 24 September – 23 October

Change on the inside can bring about a shift in your circumstances, which is why the week ahead may be a turning point. A decision to reform an aspect of your personality could lead to a new beginning that turns out to be very positive. It might seem small, but the impact can spread like ripples on a pond. Finances may get a boost, but a desire for small luxuries can show up too.

Scorpio 24 October – 22 November

It’s a great week for a collaboration, and for initiating a bold goal or plan. Make use of the New Moon and you’ll have additional planetary power to boost your journey to success. Take those first steps early and things can skyrocket immediately. And as bejewelled Venus moves into your sign, your charisma and natural magnetism could assist you in getting what you want.

Sagittarius 23 November – 21 December

You could accomplish more this week than you have in some time. And if you’re about to make a move, you’ll have the weight of the cosmos behind you supporting you along the way. The New Moon in a prominent zone is worth taking advantage of because it’s helped by strong influences. Want to make a big splash? The early part of the week is the best time to go for it.

Capricorn 22 December – 20 January

Take that step into the unknown and you will be rewarded. With a powerful lunar phase on the go, it’s wise to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. If you’re excited by something, then don’t take too long to decide, as saying yes to it could kick-start an avalanche of happenings and positive developments. Your love life and social life show promise too.

Aquarius 21 January – 19 February

Ready to transform your life? This week can see you turning difficulties into golden opportunities that may bring greater peace and success. The New Moon in an intense zone occurs at the same time as a potent blend of energies which can blast through obstacles and bring lucky breaks and offers your way too. Ready to create a stir? You’ll certainly stand out from the crowd.

Pisces 20 February – 20 March

A relationship might reveal its full potential, and this could encourage you to link up with someone in a more committed way. Whether this is a business partnership, a romance or a new friendship, together you can become a power team. And as Venus eases into Scorpio, you’ll find it easier to connect with others on your wavelength who share the same passions as you.
