Welcome to a full moon week that could bring happy surprises and new vibes. As Virgo season comes to a close, the last big astrological event of the Maiden's moment is a full moon in its sister sign Pisces. And then Libra season starts up, amplifying our search for balance, beauty, and partnership.
On Monday, September 20, at 7:54 p.m. ET/4:54 p.m. PT, the Pisces full moon will occur just an hour after Mercury, currently in social Libra, forms a harmonious trine to lucky Jupiter in humanitarian Aquarius, setting the stage for sweet communication, optimism, and romantic daydreams to become spiritually-satisfying reality.
Then, the Scales' love of connection and art takes center stage when on Wednesday, September 22, we officially kick off fall and Libra season, which will last until Friday, October 22.
The next day, on Thursday, September 23, romantic Venus in magnetic water sign Scorpio opposes game-changer Uranus in rock-steady earth sign Taurus, spurring shake-ups and surprises in relationships. Being open to change and breakthroughs can make this a less jarring moment.
And the week closes out on Saturday, September 25 with go-getter Mars in Libra forming a positive trine to taskmaster Saturn, boosting your ability to do work hard for something you're passionate about. Oh, and it could crank up your sex drive, too.

(Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)
