A brand-new you, we and me are on the horizon. Be straightforward in your intentions and organize your space for a clearer pathway. Utilize your words to write or voice your opinion in a constructive, productive way. Live in the present, and work in the present to reap tomorrow’s benefits and future profits. Start showing up for yourself first, then show up and help others who may struggle or need a pick-me-up along the way. The Full Moon in Aries on Oct. 1 asks you to evolve and transform yourself if you want to grow within your profession or craft and rise to the occasion. It’s time for a fresh start. “The arithmetic of life does not always have a logical answer.” Inshirah-Abbdur-Rauf

Capricorn: Iron sharpens iron, so keep a smile on your face through these real times. Continue in your daily practice to reach what it is you wish to achieve. Review your process, as you may need to implement an idea or subtract a few details in the plan that could cause failure or success. Please stay focused and speak life into others, as words vibrate at a frequency to heal, instead of causing conflict and unwanted situations. Be practical and focus on solving the solution. “Not all who wander are lost.” JRR Tolkien

Aquarius: Spread the word, give love back to your community. Put out a call to action. Heal thyself to atone past and present matters for clarity and focus, for peace of mind and a heartfelt relief to liberate yourself from any redundant habits or situations. You are the messenger this week and the one with a responsibility to connect the dots. Have fun and feel and look your best. Accept the compliments from others. “A man is born into the world with only a tiny spark of goodness in him. The spark is God, it is the soul; the rest is ugliness and evil, a shell. The spark must be guarded like a treasure, it must be fanned into flame.” Chaim Potok

Pisces: You are a zodiac sign that is quick on your feet and never at a loss for words. Apply pen to paper to write those musical lyrics of sorts that have been on your mind. Publish a website or a book; release yourself from relationship matters that are injurious, and finally organize areas that need a fresh look. Attend or address any health concerns or follow-up appointments, as it may be hard to pinpoint the causes of your discomfort and the doctor might be unable to give an accurate diagnosis. Get a second diagnosis or opinion. It’s time to restrain yourself from people, places, things, and habits that hold you back. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” Dr. Seuss

Aries: When was the last time you reviewed your finances? Monies may come and go, or perhaps a usual settlement or contract could appear unexpectedly out of the blue. A friend, family member, or even you may be under the weather. Take care of yourself and take the right vitamins to boost your immune system. An awkward, unexpected pregnancy, relationship, financial or home improvement issue may surface. If so, stay calm and focus on the details before making a decision. Just know you can count on your friends and family to get the job done, so be open to receive help if needed. “When it is not in our power to determine what is true, we ought to follow what is most probable.” René Descartes

Taurus: Can you smell the money on its way from possible investments, trade, and other entities you’ve provided and created? You may have been making moves independently, and now it’s time to reap the rewards. You contributed time and effort, along with sleepless nights, to get the job done to help others in ways that words can’t even express. Salute yourself with a pat on the back for stepping out there and taking the lead. The first week of October could be quite easygoing. Hold on to that energy until the end of the month. Pace yourself. “Nature uses only the longest threads to weave her patterns, so each small piece of her fabric reveals the organization of the entire tapestry.” Richard Feynman

Gemini: By now, you should be feeling like a billion bucks. October starts with the possibilities of a new beginning, a new home, investment, or a new lease to live life a bit differently. Prop your feet up or have your spouse/significant other massage your back. If you’re single, a warm bath, reading a book, or better yet, a massage appointment will do you justice. Take time to paint or decorate your home to express the joy you feel inside. Unwind for a few hours, then make a to-do list for the final touches to make things complete. “We are dust of long dead stars. Or, if you want to be less romantic, we are nuclear waste.” Sir Martin Rees

Cancer: Life this week may jog your memory of how things used to be, almost like the good ole days and past times shared with others. When was the last time you checked your financial records, checked in on a loved one, or followed up on a job application? Have you considered starting your own business to teach a course since you are an expert in a particular area? This month may find you on a quest to get to know yourself better than before. “You don’t need to leave your room, remain sitting at your table and listen. Don’t even listen, simply wait. Don’t even wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you. To be unmasked it has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

Leo: The last week of September served as a crossing point in your life with a moment of truth to decide which route to take. Now you’re feeling on the verge of something new, creative, and inventive to spread the message to people, which shouldn’t be hard. Journal your thoughts by taking up a recent study, be it writing or soul searching, to discover parts you never utilized. News of pregnancy, rewards, compensation, promotion, or an offer is more pronounced in the second week. It’s better to be prepared than not for an opportunity or a cause you believe in to come true. “I will go on quietly and slowly, but I will go on firmly, and with a certainty of success.” David O’Connell

Virgo: Take the lead this month by following your intentions and doing things on your terms, perhaps in a peculiar way. Connecting with your intuition for validation is necessary. Changes within your home, workplace, maybe decorating, painting, or even rearranging pictures on the wall to beautify the view, are recommended. Set new rules in place, along with a new order of operation. Please don’t get too caught up with up-in-the-air situations and slow-downs. Things are happening there for a reason. You have to attend to the details more than anything this week. “The real is the rational and the rational is the real.” G.W.F Hegel

Libra: Whatever adjustments are needed, it’s best to get it done now. Settle any semi-legal or legal matters before things get out of control. Keep in mind to reduce your speed as you head out to run your errands for the day. Hoard your money for a rainy day, or a later investment when the iron strikes hot for bargain deals since your finances are stable. Friends and family may pitch in to help as supporters of your businesses or can perhaps play another role through referrals or other partnerships interests. “The universe was a vast machine yesterday. It is a hologram today. Who knows what intellectual rattle we’ll be shaking tomorrow.” R. D. Laing

Scorpio: What are you waiting for? Take the risk, but review the details before signing or initiating anything. This week you can talk yourself into and out of a situation, especially if honesty and commitment are lacking. Most importantly, ask yourself how do you feel? A change, along with a resolution, will be pronounced by Oct. 31. The ball is in your court. Are you ready to make that leap of faith? Opportunities are looking directly at you. “What one does is what counts and not what one had the intention of doing.” Pablo Picasso

Sagittarius: This year has thus far had its awkward moments; or perhaps partnerships with a few separations from friends, family and associates. You may have discovered things about yourself that you never knew existed or had enough courage and strength to recognize. People showed their true colors, and this includes you as well. It’s all part of an adventure to experience. Now, let bygones be bygones and move forward to achieve your dreams. You’re about to embark on a prominent quest. Leave the past in the past. Learning from your experiences is a valuable lesson, evolving you into a better person. “Philosophizing is the process of making sense out of experience.” Susanne Langer
