Read on to see what's in the air for you astrologically with a weekly horoscope for September 18th - 24th. It's recommended you read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and Rising sign (or if you have a late Rising, the sign after). General horoscopes are always meant for entertainment purposes only.
Aries: You may be positively in touch with your feelings early on the 18th. The 23rd may make your emotions more intense early on, though that can go positive or negative, but then something happily unexpected could come up that takes your attention.
Taurus: Midday on the 18th, you may feel even-keel, but later in the day you may experience a power struggle, someone trying to get power over you, or your trying to have power over others. You could have an emotional dip the 21st, but recover nicely by the 23rd.
Gemini: The Moon is in your sign the 18th and 19th, so you may feel most emotionally at ease and harmonious with yourself then, however there may be a difficulty on the evening of the 19th. The positive emotions continue the 22nd.
Cancer: From midday the 20th to the 22nd, the Moon is in Cancer, and you could feel this is a good period for you where you're not so crabby. The 23rd could bring high energy early, but watch for possible bad dreams the night of the 24th.
Leo: Mars enters Leo on the 18th, increasing energy and drive for all Leos. Use it wisely! The Moon is also in your sign the 23rd and 24th, really ramping up your energy. Focus on what you need to accomplish and the stars may help you do it.
Virgo: You may feel emotional unease the 19th, but better the 22nd. The 23rd and 24th could find you hiding in the background or preferring to be alone. We all need a day or two to recharge sometimes, and those are the days for it.
Libra: The Sun enters Libra on the 23rd, the start of a new season and better vitality for Librans. If you've been feelings a bit rundown, that could start to shift with the Sun in your sign. The 23rd could be an especially good day for you.
Scorpio: There could be a difficulty with a loved one on the 18th. Also watch for overindulgence. The 23rd could find you having problems with your emotions. The 23rd and 24th may shift your emotional focus to your career and life path. Where are you going?
Sagittarius: The 18th and 19th has the Moon in your opposing sign of Gemini, so there may be less focus on you and more on others. Make sure you don't neglect yourself to much. The 21st may be a great day emotionally, but the 23rd could have difficulties.
Capricorn: The 19th may have you feeling good and it may come naturally and easily. The 21st may not be so pleasant, and you may feel cold or distant. The 24th may bring an opportunity to improve things if you put in the effort.
Aquarius: You've got the reins to make yourself feel good the 18th, but the 20th may be difficult to deal with. The 23rd could be stellar with your emotions, energy, and drive all working together cohesively and positively.
Pisces: The 1st half of the day of the 18th may find you feeling overly emotional. You could bounce back by the 20th, but the 24th could bring something out of your control that throws you for an emotional loop.

It tends to signal a time of new opportunities, growth, and optimism.
September 12th 2011 Full Moon in Pisces
The full moon on the 12th occurs at 5:27AM ET and at 19 degrees 17 minutes of Pisces, just past the middle of the sign. Pisces rules the subconscious, the surreal, the imagination, and all that is beyond our physical world and senses. Issues related to how we perceive reality, dreams, water, feet, and addiction may be in the spotlight, and you may get a sense that the world is viewing things through rose-colored glasses. Pisces is very much the trippy-dippy, hopping along a rainbow sign. It's a good Moon for trying to cut through deception and breaking through illusions. Spend time letting your imagination roam by watching a movie, reading a book, listening to music, going to a museum, or doing anything creative. It's okay to get lost in other worlds sometimes. Take a dip on a dwindling summer day and then go dancing all night. Take the trippy-dippy-ness of Pisces and turn it into whimsy and sweet fun. If you're a Pisces Sun or Moon between 17 and 21 degrees, or a late Pisces rising, you'll feel the effects of this Moon most.
September 27th 2011 New Moon in Libra
The new moon on the 27th occurs at 7:08AM ET and at 4 degrees 0 minutes of Libra. Libra rules fairness, justice, and balance, and makes us hate cruel inequality. This moon could shine a light on issues of equality, what's fair, and why balance is important. Libra also rules one-on-one relationships, including romantic relationships, business partnerships, and even our enemies (but our "open" enemies, those who we know don't like us and are quite open about it). If you need to deal with an issue in a relationship, this is the Moon to do it under. Let yourself become closer with loved ones. Libra loves a healthy, intimate relationship with an equal partner. This Moon is a busy one, making aspects to four other planets: Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto. It'll conjunct (be in the same position as) Mercury in Libra, so this'll be a talky new moon, with more communicating going on than usual and a focus on electronics/technology. It'll sextile (about 60 degrees, or two signs, apart) Mars in Leo, bringing a positive energy with this Moon, allowing us to have the drive to get everything done and then some. The new moon opposes a retrograding Uranus in Aries, making things seem like they're just not moving fast enough for us. We'll be a little more restless and desperate for a change. The Moon also squares (about 90 degrees, or three signs, apart) Pluto in Capricorn, which could bring power and control issues with our authority figures (like our bosses) or older people (like our parents). If you're a Libra Sun or Moon between 2 and 6 degrees, or a Libra rising, you'll feel the effects of this Moon most.
Read on to see what's in the air for you astrologically with a weekly horoscope for September 11th - 17th. It's recommended you read your Sun sign, Moon sign, and Rising sign (or if you have a late Rising, the sign after). General horoscopes are always meant for entertainment purposes only. Note: Starting for October, monthly horoscopes will begin.
Aries: You may feel more at ease and see the sweeter side of yourself and others on the 11th. The evening of the 12th could bring you more in touch with your emotions in a positive way, while the first half of the 15th may bring grumpiness, irritability, and moody behavior. For the 13th and 14th, the Moon is in your sign, heightening emotions but making you more at ease.
Taurus: On the 11th you may feel a surge in energy, especially earlier in the day, so use it wisely and get things done. You may experience uneasiness with your emotions, feeling out of sync, or lonely on the night of the 12th. The 17th could produce something unexpected that you're not prepared for, or a feeling of boredom with life.
Gemini: Feeling powerful and in control could be what dominates early on the 12th. The 14th could bring an increase in optimism, and you may feel lucky, jovial, and not take life so seriously. The 15th - 17th could be a good period to assess what needs to be cleared out of your life and do a little late summer cleaning.
Cancer: The Full Moon on the 12th might bring the culmination or ending of something related to travel (the end of a trip), the law (the end of a legal dispute), or higher learning (the end of a class). Also watch for being overly passionate about a belief. Early on the 13th, you could be faced with something unexpected, and the 16th could find you feeling positive about life.
Leo: Around the 12th your attention may be focused on making an important change to yourself or your life, or having to deal with other people's money (taxes, debts, loans, inheritances, etc.). The Moon from the 15th through 17th makes your career and life path the central focus. You may feel emotionally harmonious on the 17th.
Virgo: The Moon on the 11th and 12th could make you put all of your attention on other people, your relationships with them, what they want/need from you, their problems, their desires. This might give you a feeling of control that you like, and by the 14th you may have gotten everyone squared away and feel good about what you've done.
Libra: Venus, your ruler, enters your sign on the 14th, increasing your charm, sweetness, poise, and grace. If you feel a little more at ease with yourself, it may very well be from having your ruler at home in your sign. A breath of fresh air! You may feel more driven on the 11th, but the 17th may bring something out of the blue.
Scorpio: Scorpio's ruler, Pluto, turns to direct motion on the 16th after being retrograde for many months, so you may feel like things are finally going forward instead of backwards, sideways, and looping like they have been for a while. You may be emotionally at ease the 11th, and engage in positive communications of the 12th.
Sagittarius: The 11th could bring good feelings about yourself and life. The 14th could be a communications day, where you have an important conversation with someone, get an important email, text, or letter, and if there's something you need to say to someone, that's the day for it. The 16th may put your emotions front and center, whether it's good or bad.
Capricorn: The 13th and 14th could put emotional focus onto your home and family, and the 14th could bring emotional unrest linked to that. The 15th and 16th may be lighter, more fun days, days where you want to let your hair loose, cut out of work early, and do something just for fun that maybe you haven't done in a while.
Aquarius: The 11th and 12th may have you centered on your money, whether you're trying to make more, spend on a big ticket item, or plan your budget out. The 13th could have you most in touch with your feelings this month, something Aquarius usually isn't used to. The 17th may bring a problem with a loved one or overindulgence.
Pisces: The Full Moon on the 12th occurs in your sign, and the Moon stays in your sign through the 12th, so watch for an increase in emotional reactions to situations and people (like Pisces isn't emotional enough!). It could signal the end of something in your life as well. Your emotions could even out to a more manageable level by the 15th.
