Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
If you hope to have a baby, September could bring exciting news. I say this because the fifth house of truelove, which is packed with happy planets and glowing brightly, also rules pregnancy, birth, and the care of children. If you have concerns about conception, don’t waste a minute—see a fertility expert. If you are in the process of a divorce and there is a question about the future custody and care of your children, this new moon will protect your children’s interests and likely give you an answer that you find fair and possibly even pleasing.
A new moon in Virgo has Mercury as its ruler, so that planet will take the lead at the start of the month, and happily, Uranus will have a strong role to play by sending a golden beam to Mercury. If Mercury were not well aspected, the new moon would fall flat—but Mercury is receiving the right energy, and that energy is coming from surprise-a-minute Uranus. Keep your cell phone powered up.
The fifth house, along with love, fun, leisure, and matters of children, also rules your creative and artistic expressions, and in a month like this, with all the planets beaming their best energies into your fifth house, you will contribute your brightest imaginative ideas to your current projects. Your ideas will be so good that you may be amazed at your ability to come up with them. Virgo is a brainy, intellectual sign, so if you are a writer or editor, your work will be outstanding, and if you come out with it this month, critics will hail it as some of your best work.
The time just after the new moon is the strongest, and with each successive day, she becomes a little bit weaker until she has spent all her energy—then she will create the full moon to provoke a grand finale or sense of closure. After the full moon has waned (it takes four to five days after the full moon appears), what follows is a resting or planning period of two weeks, so that would not be the best time to initiate anything. This is a good rule of thumb for any month: Always initiate actions just after a new moon and reap results at the full moon. After the full moon has waned, you have a two-week planning period to be ready for the next new moon.
If your birthday falls on April 25, plus or minus five days, you will receive a double-dip of pleasure at this new moon. The same is true if you have Taurus rising or the natal moon in Taurus at seven degrees, plus or minus five degrees. Also, look to see if you have a natal planet in Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn at or within five degrees of seven degrees, then you, too, will benefit.
