General Predictions for the New Moon in Virgo:

On September the 17th, at 11:01 UT the Moon meets the Sun, in Virgo, forming the New Moon. This New Moon affects strongly and beneficially Pluto and, even more so, Saturn. This means that, both the day of the New Moon and the following waxing Moon period will be very helpful for healing, including physical, emotional and spiritual healing, healing of past traumas, past relationships and past lives. Meditation, affirmations, aromatherapy, flower remedies, as well as traditional medicines can produce better results than usual. Energy healing, too, receives some help. Furthermore, magic and spirituality will be strong.

During this waxing Moon period the Sun and Mercury change their zodiacs. The Sun, on the 22nd of September enters Libra, which means the Equinox will be on that day. It also means that the Grand Triangle of Earth that was blessing us during the previous period will cease activity. Also, Mercury enters Scorpio, on the 27th. By then, Mercury will have lost a little of its speed, and from the 30th and then it will be losing more and faster, as it’s getting ready to turn retrograde during the waning Moon period, but it is still fast, right now, which is a good thing. Its new position will be a less stressed one, too, which is even better.

Furthermore, Saturn has slowed down, to an almost stationary condition, as its getting ready to turn back in to direct motion, late during this waxing Moon period, on the 29th of the month, at 05:11 UT. Pluto, too, is almost stationary as it’s getting ready, too, to turn back in to direct motion, but this will happen on the 4th of October, three days after the coming Full Moon.

- -

On top of that, for now we have 6 planets in retrograde motion: Mars, Saturn, Pluto, Uranus, Neptune and Chiron, and by the end of the period, 5 will still be in retrograde motion. So, overall, things are moving on, but slowly.

Mars’ square with Jupiter:

As we’ve seen before, and will keep on seeing until early 2021, Mars forms some stressful 6-months long aspects. Furthermore, right now, Mars is Retrograde, which makes these aspects even more stressful.

Mars’ square with Jupiter, which has paused its activity on the day of the previous Full Moon, it starts affecting us again, on the on the 20th of September and it will remain active until the 24th of February 2021. During this period, being too optimistic is not, in fact, positive thinking, but a way to hindrance our progress. Worrying too much is also easy to happen and it is just as ill-advisable as being too optimistic is. The same is true for being impatient.

Furthermore, financial risks should be avoided. Scams and fake opportunities promising to get you rich fast are possible to appear and should also be avoided. Any kind of investment should be considered extra carefully.

Mars’ square with Pluto:

Similarly, Mars is forming a square with the still Retrograde Pluto. This square became accurate for the first time on the 13th of August. The square, though, started acting on the 23rd of July and it will remain so until the 16th of January 2021, without a break. This is a difficult to handle aspect and needs much care and attention. During this long period every kind of change we intend to do must be done slowly and after thinking of it thoroughly. Even then, disappointments might take place. Harrying things up and pressing situations can guarantee failure, unless Mars in your Natal Chart is very auspiciously active, or Mars makes very good aspects with your Natal planets. Even then, though, being too hasty, or too forceful can backfire.

This aspect can also produce intense negative feelings and mindset. Especially for a week before and after the dates when the aspect becomes accurate (on such day is coming on the 9th of October), or when Mars receives other stress, too. Mars, unfortunately receives much additional stress, and long-term one, too, throughout the whole period. Furthermore, Pluto can cause emotional issues to act up even when it is overly active beneficially. Even worse so when it is stressfully active. During the whole 6 month long period, Pluto will always be super active, too. So, take good care of your emotional condition and your mood. If you are dealing with psychological issues, or you have such a history, be even more watchful.

Mars’ square with Saturn:

Finally, Mars forms a square with Saturn. This square has been active since the 31st of July and it will remain so until the 2nd of November. Then, again from the 10th of December until the 7th of February 2021. Furthermore, this square will become accurate for the second time on the 29th of September. During the whole period of its activity, physical health needs great attention. If you are working out keep your routine as is. Make only minor changes and reluctantly so. Relaxing it permanently is okay, though. In the same time, if you don’t exercise, then adding some light – very light – form of exercise in your daily routine is advisable. Make sure it is light and easy for you, not whatever might be commonly considered as light and easy. Aerobic kind of exercise is more advisable than body building and the like.

Making significant changes in your diet is not advisable, but taking some extra calcium and vitamin C are good general advices. Of course, consult your doctor before taking any health care supplements, and don’t overdo it. As Saturn is still Retrograde, and now Mars is, too, old health issues might act up. Repetitive issues might also re-occur. The musculoskeletal system, the digestive one and the circulatory system are the most sensitive. High blood pressure, feverish conditions and other fiery conditions also need some extra attention and better care. Accidents can also happen. When engaging with dangerous activities, be extra careful. The same is advisable for when engaging with fire, or metal. Drive extra carefully, too.

Just like with Pluto’s square, disappointments are possible and forcing things to move on is not the right policy.

The rest inauspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Venus square with Uranus which is active since the 7th of the month, and became accurate on the 15th, will continue affecting us until the 24th of September. This aspect can challenge our emotional life. Already problematic relationships, friendly and romantic ones, will experience this more intensively. Also, those seeking a new relationship and those trying to change the status of their relationship might have to face more challenges than they expect.

The Sun opposition to Neptune loses power and it will stop affecting us on the 21st of September. Under the influences of this aspect, amongst else, our reason might be a bit more clouded by our emotions. Misunderstandings can happen more easily, too. Also, we tend to give negative, or unpleasant events more value then they deserve.

Mercury, while still on Libra, squares Jupiter. Accurately so on the day of this New Moon. This square will remain active until the 25th. This square might bring some problems in our social life, as well as in work and travelling. Other than travelling (which is strongly stressed by other aspects, too) the effects of this aspect won’t be too harsh. More effort might be needed, more challenges might appear, but overcoming those will be feasible, and so will be success.

Mercury also squares Pluto. This square will be accurate on the 21st of September and it’s been affecting us from the 14th and it will continue doing so until the 29th. Under the influence of this aspect trying new kind therapies is not advisable. Of course, if your doctor suggests it, do it. Be watchful for side effects, though, and report them to your doctor as soon as possible. Furthermore, nightmares and negative “intuition” might appear. Don’t give those too much credit. In most cases they are nothing more than an expression of your own stress.

Mercury also squares Saturn. This square started acting on the eve of this New Moon, the 16th of September, and it will keep on acting until the day of the Full Moon. It will become accurate on the 23rd. This might hindrance our meditative practices, but the New Moon generously blesses those, so it won’t cause much of a problem, on those. Mostly some more difficult to concentrate, or to deicide to actually do the meditation. Around the days it will be perfect (as Mars’ square with Saturn and Mars’ opposition with Mercury will be too strong, too) it might be more challenging, though. Mercury’s and Saturn square can also make us more stubborn and less understanding and flexible. These are traits we need to keep under control.

Mercury opposes Mars. Accurately, on the 24th. This aspect will be active from the day of this New Moon and until the coming Full Moon, the 1st of October. This can bring more tension in our communications and interactions. Driving, which already needs extra carefulness, under this influence it needs even more. Means of communication and transportation, too, can have some problems.

From the 28th onwards Mercury opposes Uranus. This opposition will become accurate, for the first time during the waning Moon period, on the 7th of October. Then again on the 20th of October. Then, it will pause its activity from the 30th and until the 9th of November. Lastly, it will become accurate for the 3rd time on the 17th of November and it will finally stop affecting us on the 24th of November. During the whole period of its activity, technology and whatever depends on it can be more challenging and more problematic. High-tech equipment can act oddly, or they might need repairs, or replacement. After the 15th of November, when we’ll be in an Ecliptic Period, these effects will become more intense.

The auspicious aspects of the New Moon:

From the 31st of July and until the 17th of October Jupiter is in a triangle with Uranus. This triangle won’t become accurate and, throughout the period, at least one of the planets and, for half the time, both planets will be in retrograde motion. So, this is not a strong blessing, but it will help us advance despite the difficulties, if we are patient, open-minded and act wisely. Now that Jupiter is back into direct motion, though, this subtle blessing might become a bit more obvious.

Neptune’s year long hexagon with Jupiter is very strong during this Moon circle. In fact, it will become accurate during the coming waning Moon period. Also, now Neptune’s years-long hexagons with Saturn and Pluto are quite strong and are getting stronger until the Full Moon. Amongst else, these three hexagons, along with the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, give great power to magic. Also these aspects help us heal our souls, and our relationships. Healing past traumas and traumas from past lives is highly advisable, if you haven’t done that yet, as the retrograde activity of the planets involved is decreasing, and, also, this New Moon supports such things.

The Sun is in a triangle with each Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Those triangles were accurate on the 9th, the 14th and the 17th respectively, and they’ll be blessing us until the 20th, the 25th and the 28th. These triangles are what remains from the Grand Triangle of Earth and, although not as strongly any more, they can still bring good luck and pleasant developments in every aspect of our lives. Their specialised effects on each zodiac is seen in each zodiac’s predictions.

Also, Mercury is in a hexagon with Venus. This hexagon is blessing us since the 23rd of August and it will continue blessing us until the 19th of October. On the 4th of September it became accurate, for the first time, and it will become accurate for the second time on the 12th of October. By then, Venus will be in Virgo and Mercury will be in Scorpio, barely direct. During this unusually long-lasting aspect of those two fast moving planets, social life, love life and sex life receive a boosting. Meeting new people becomes easier. During the period both planets will be in extrovert zodiacs, even more so. That’s from the 5th and until the 27th of September. Exercise caution, especially now that Mercury forms many stressful aspects, but go for it, if that’s what you need.

Venus forms a triangle with the Retrograde Mars. Accurately so on the 29th of September. This triangle will be affecting us from the 22nd of September and until the 5th of October. This, amongst else, can help us with our sex life, and love life. Careful handling of intense and problematic situations is advisable, as Mars receives much stress, but, employing that, overcoming problems is feasible.


So, overall, this is a more difficult period than the previous fortnight, but, surely, it’s not a period we should be postponing what we need to be doing. There are still significant blessings supporting us and our efforts.

New Moon Predictions for Aries:

Work, career and business matters receive the main focus of this New Moon and this waxing Moon period, for good and ill. Until the 25th, though, the beneficial influences will be stronger, than the stressful ones. So, more effort, calmness and caution might be needed, but progress and successes are happening. After then, they are still feasible, but harder to get. Preparing in advance, though, can help. Finances receive some stress. In most cases, if you keep your expenses under control, you don’t need to worry about these.

Love and social life, on the other hand, receive mostly beneficial influences. Nurturing your current relationship and friendships, finding new friends and love interests and things like those are feasible. Also, creativity scan become quite active.

New Moon Predictions for Taurus:

Healing is strong, but health might stress you under the influences of this New Moon and this waxing Moon period. In most cases, though, physical health will stress you more than the situations call for. Of course, do take proper care of your health, regardless. Emotional health, on the other hand, and your mood seem more sensitive and vulnerable. Also, work receives some stressful energies. Jobs depending on communications, transportations and good social skills will experience these influences more intensively.

Social life, on the other hand seems mostly pleasant and supportive. Depending on your friends can help you get through the challenges of the period more easily. Love life, too, receives some support, but not a strong one. Furthermore, productivity seems strong and home and family can play a pleasant role in your life.

New Moon Predictions for Gemini:

Finances receive some stress from this New Moon and this waxing Moon period. In most cases, though, this doesn’t affect your income. Trade, though, and freelancers might experience a few unexpected difficulties. Expenses, contracts, deals and the like need a thorough thinking and investigation. Productivity, on the other hand, can face some difficulties, but it’s very strong. Your mood, too, might need your conscious support more often than not.

Social and love life receive a bit of stress, but they are mostly good. Especially so from the 22nd and afterwards, it can become more active than you’d expect. Meeting new people also receives some good luck. Also, work, career and business matters receive mostly good influences. Family, too, can play a pleasant role in your life.

New Moon Predictions for Cancer:

Work and business matters receive some stressful energies, from this New Moon and this waxing Moon period. Colleagues and business partners might be the reason for this. Also, relocating your businesses, or changing the place you are working can cause you some stress. Nonetheless, things advance, progress is happening and income receives mostly good energies. Expenses, though, need a better consideration.

Home and family might cause you some stress, at times, but they are mostly supportive and play a pleasant role in your life. Social life, too, receives mostly pleasant energies. It can become more active than it has been, or more pleasant than it has been. Love life, too, receives mostly good influences, although long-standing relationships might have some stressful moments.

New Moon Predictions for Leo:

Work, career and business matters are under the main focus of this New Moon and this waxing Moon period. There is some stress, there, especially if you are trying to start something new, but the supportive influences are stronger, so progress and successes are happening. At times, though, you might feel overwhelmed by the work load, as well as other obligations. Your mood and your emotional condition, too, need some care. Physical health, too. Healing, though, seems extra strong, so, if you are careful, things will be okay.

Your productivity is strong, and if you maintain a good health and a positive outlook, you can progress more than you’d expect during this fortnight. Finances, too, receive quite good and supportive energies.

New Moon Predictions for Virgo:

Finances receive some stress from this New Moon and this waxing Moon period. Long term finances, as well as decisions regarding those, receive support, though. It’s also a good period for correcting your financial policies, paying debts and correcting other mistakes regarding money. Avoid taking loans, though, as much as possible. Social and love life, too, receives some stress, but there, the supportive energies are much stronger and a wise handling can help you overcome the challenges and enjoy more of the good moments.

Not-problematic, long-standing relationships will enjoy mostly, if not only, the blessings of the period. Those seeking a new relationship, too, can get lucky. Furthermore, magic and spirituality are strong for everyone, but much more so for you.

New Moon Predictions for Libra:

Home and family can play an important role in your life, during this fortnight. There might be some stress, some discouragement and some distraction coming from there, but in the same time, this New Moon and this waxing Moon period can help you heal and strengthen family relationships. It’s also an auspicious period for house maintenance. Furthermore, health issues in the family can have good developments. Your health, too, gets stronger. Even more so after the 28th.

Finances, too, receive some stress and the same is true for work. In most cases, this means you need to try harder and work harder, rather than things can’t go the way you want them, too. It’s also a good period to take a break, if that’s what you prefer. Love and social life receive some stress, but the support, there is much stronger. Try to keep your calm and a positive attitude and things can become much better. In some cases, much more so than you’d expect.

New Moon Predictions for Scorpio:

Health receives some stress from this New Moon and this waxing Moon period and extra care and attention is advisable. Both physical and emotional health are affected. Driving extra carefully, and being extra careful when engaging in dangerous activities is also advisable. Work, too, can be stressful, very demanding and, occasionally, unpredictable and chaotic.

Meeting new people is also possible and, if you do your part, luck is most likely to support you.

Income, though, mostly receives supportive and strengthening influences, at least until the 25th of the month. Even afterwards, it still gets support, but not as strongly.

Work, career and business matters, too receive mostly supportive energies. Studies and intellectual kind of jobs, even more so. Furthermore, family, relatives, friends and your other half will give you more joy than stress during this period. Real life socialisation and dating, other than party-like events, seems mostly pleasant, but online one might need some more attention.

New Moon Predictions for Capricorn:

Home, family and your environment, in general plays a significant role in your life, during this fortnight, and it is a mostly stressful one. Any kind of changes, new beginnings, or career moves you are planning, they might be less enthusiastic than you’d prefer, or even somewhat discouraging. Those working with family members might experience this more intensively. In the same time, though, it’s a helpful period for healing your relationships with those people. Love life, too, receives a bit of stress, mostly for relatively new, or sex based relationships.

Although work, career and business matters receive some stress, the supportive influences are much more and much stronger. Progress and successes in the field are happening. Your productivity is quite strong, too. Furthermore, social life can be more active and mostly pleasantly so.

Money needs some wiser handling, under the influences of this New Moon and this waxing Moon period.

Work, too, can be stressful, every now and then, but, most of the times, the supportive energies are much stronger.

Health needs some better care, but healing is strong, so with proper care, things will be okay. If you are dealing with health problems, expect pleasant developments.
