Every ending has a new beginning that allows us rebuild ourselves little by little. We’ve had our chance to work hard towards our goal, despite the seemingly endless obstacle, and now it’s time to focus on our personal happiness and self-healing.
 
Unlike the New Moon in Virgo two weeks ago, this week’s Full Moon and a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces brings a relaxing beginning to give you a chance to find inner peace. The Full Moon will begin on September 17th 2016 with an opposite aspect with Sun in Virgo and Jupiter in Libra. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with work and dealing with people/customers/colleagues in general, the Full Moon will nudge you with a simple “Hey” followed with “You should totally stop working and just chill for a bit.”

The Full Moon will remind you of the importance to take care of yourself, physically and mentally. Because, the more you are stressed with work and the pressure of achieving your goal, the more mentally affected you are. And we all know how this will force us to take a sick leave because we can’t be bothered to deal with another workplace demand.
 
The infamous Mercury Retrograde in trine aspect with Pluto retrograde also helps to integrate you into this healing period. You don’t have to push yourself too hard because this partner-in-crime duo will make sure that you have enough rest time for yourself. They would sabotage any work/relationship that does not serve any good purpose for you.

Projects may fail, a new job prospect/tender may be postponed, your customers/clients may decide to do last minute cancellation, and the list goes on. You may encounter the Universe red flag such as bad feeling about a certain someone that you’re supposed to work together with. Pisces is all about intuition and gut feeling. So if you can choose not to give it a go, follow your guts. You can always be thankful later because now you’ll finally have the time to do things your way.
 



So for once, go home early, spend some time to pamper yourself with homemade organic facial mask, watch your favorite tv show, and be lazy. If anyone tells you to work harder or to perform better at your workplace, tell them that you’re trying to find your Zen, because you totally deserve this.
 
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
The Magus
 
A pre-conceived perception can be dangerous for you because it will limit your chance of meeting new and interesting contacts. Being the perfectionist you are, it’s not easy to stop passing judgment the moment you shake someone’s hand. For others, tuning in is hard, but for you, tuning out is way harder. So try your best not to judge someone so easily on your first encounter if you want to know how these people would add new values to your life.
 
You should listen to:
Frank Sinatra - Strangers in The Night
 
You should wear:
Choose something that would make you feel comfortable in your own skin because you may not feel like standing out of the crowd this week. There’s an inner turmoil that you need to solve, and being the center of attention does not help you to solve it. If you want to show off your skin, choose something that accentuates your femininity. You can add a warm colored off-shoulder or a sleeveless turtleneck to this week’s wardrobe checklist.
 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Six of Cups (Pleasure)
 
Due to unforeseen circumstances, you may be forced to take an action to push yourself out of your comfort zone. It will be uncomfortable for you, but these are the things that needs to be done to fight your way in a sea of opportunity. You don’t have to be the best, so choose your battle wisely.
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Lust
 
If you don’t know what to say or how to respond to a situation, stay neutral. You may be tempted to talk back or argue your way out, but what happens this week will teach you to stay low-key in order to resolve with an amicable agreement. Go for the high road, if you want to wrap up the week nicely.
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Ace of Wands
 
You can give your heart to them, but your head will always try to protect you from making the wrong decision in the name of love. When you fall in love, you will give them the world, however, it’s best to play it cool until they have proven their feelings for you. Can your heart wait until then?
 
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Fortune
 
When you have a bad day, think about your good days. This has happened often to you, but a recent encounter really left you asking “What does this mean?” Sometimes the best lesson you can learn in life is to realize that not everything has an answer. Accept your bad day, learn from it, and move on.
 
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Five of Cups (Disappointment)
 
Sometimes love can grow out of constant hate and quarrel between two people. A love life is not always smooth sailing, Aquarius. Sometimes you really have to hate someone to understand how similar you two are. Get ready for an unexpected surprise from your arch enemy. *grabs popcorn*
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Four of Disks (Power)
 
What other people are saying about you is not inherently true, but you still let them getting into your head. They may think they know what’s best for you, but in reality, you control your own destiny. So take their suggestion with a pinch of salt and see if you can make the decision for yourself.
 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Ten of Cups (Satiety)
 
If you’re feeling lost about your career right now, that’s just you trying to make sense of things. You’re not incompetent, you never are. It’s okay to take a break just to cool off your overworked brain. If you find another dead end, just know that it doesn’t mean that you’re lacking the ability. You can do this!
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Queen of Cups
 
You feel intensely sometimes that you push yourself to help everyone around you as much as possible. But what if I tell you you’ve been stretching yourself too thin for other people? Would you stop? Well if you won’t just make sure you have enough time for yourself, because they won’t do the same for you.
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Princess of Disks
 
I think you’re too tired with the superficial people around you and the drama that follows. You’re right, it’s not worth your time. Focus on yourself and what you want to do right now, before you get caught up with another catty culprit (because you’ll be tempted to make another comment about them).
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Eight of Cups (Indolence)
 
You empathise deeply with others, we get it, but you should also be able to make quick decision in a snap. If they slow you down, leave them. You don’t need to carry someone else’s baggage while you’re busy moving forward. Sometimes keeping distance from people like this helps.
 
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Six of Disks (Success)
 
When you think of obstacles as obstacles instead of a minor speed bump in your journey, you’re not going to go forward as much. What you’re experiencing right now is something that you need to learn from. Keep your chin up and embrace disappointments with positive thoughts. Stay optimistic, Leo!
