This week is leading up to a Full Harvest Moon precisely on the midnight of Saturday, September 14—right after a Friday the 13th. But it’s hardly a spooky event as you might think! The Harvest Moon ushers in the autumnal equinox and was traditionally meant to honor the bountiful blessings of the coming season. Similarly, it allows us to start reaping the fruits of our labor from the past weeks and finally celebrate our wins!
As it is also a Full Moon in Pisces, we are encouraged to use its lunar energy in our creative pursuits and big dreams, assuring us that we will achieve emotional fulfillment in the process.
Here’s how this week will affect you, based on your zodiac sign:
Aries (March 20 to April 19)
Your worries and anxieties are getting the best of you once again this week and it’s affecting the direction your life is going, making you afraid to move forward as a result. Dear Aries, the only way you can overcome your fears is to open yourself up to the world. Be true to who you are and let love and creativity flow within you. The more you trust yourself, the braver you will become. You might feel like nothing is working out for you, but some things definitely are—you just need to open your eyes to them. Be grateful for your little successes.
Taurus (April 19 – May 20)
Deep in your soul, you are yearning for fulfillment. Do you feel like you’re close to achieving it, or do you feel that it’s a concept you’ve yet to grasp? Remember that you must only spend effort and energy on things that will benefit you and not on things that are merely meant to please others. Invest in yourself and do what you truly want to do. And if you’re unsure of what your heart truly desires, just be patient; you’ll eventually find out what you’re meant to do as long as you keep moving forward.
Gemini (May 20 – June 21)
If things don’t seem to be going according to plan, don’t fret. All this can be easily solved with patience, perseverance, and being organized. Take care not to overindulge or overcommit; learn when to say no to things that won’t serve you in the long run! Spend your energy wisely and choose where to invest your time.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Balance is key for you this week—in your work, your personal life, and your relationships. Take care not to rush things; take it step-by-step so that you can be in control when things don’t go according to plan. Choose where to spend your energies and don’t involve yourself in unnecessary drama. When it comes to your partnerships—whether at work or in a romantic sense—remember that it’s always give-and-take and not give-give-give or take-take-take.
Leo (July 22 – August 23)
You are mature enough to know how to handle disappointments. There is no use dwelling on things you can’t change. Acknowledge that pain is a necessary part of life and learn to let it go. Besides, when you stop focusing on the bad things, you start realizing that there’s so much good surrounding you. Relish the good vibes! You’re so rich not just materially but in your relationships, career, and family, so be grateful for it. Grab the opportunities that abound as these will help you grow into an even better person than what you are now.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
In every situation you find yourself in, resist all temptation to act on impulse. Think your actions through to protect yourself from the consequences. This is not the time to have a YOLO attitude. Detach yourself from your emotions when making decisions so that you can carefully weigh your options with objectiveness and clarity.
