September opened on a feisty note, yet any overzealous fireworks can be skillfully reframed and romanticized by Wednesday’s full moon (3:03 a.m. EST).

This particular peak of the lunar cycle is steeped in dreamy, ethereal vibes, watered down by nebulous Neptune — the enigmatic influence of the cosmos. Confusion and passions run high midweek, and although artistic projects can benefit, be vigilant. Fully realize poetic or creative notions — don’t dilute your truth.

Our recent Mercury retrograde spell ceases, and slowly but surely clarity resumes.

Into the weekend there’s another influence in play. The vital sun aligns with Pluto — an incredibly confident and affirming pairing. Own your practical power.
