The last week of September has plenty of excitement on offer.

Generous Jupiter has been gliding through the peacekeepers' sign Libra for just over a year, emphasizing the need for justice, peace, fairness and love. Unruly Uranus, patron of shocks and surprises, has been hanging out in the opposite sign — ballsy Aries — and on Thursday their paths cross.

Look out for snap judgments and be mindful of rash decisions — the need to spice up the norm…

Despite shacking up together in down-to-earth Virgo, the lovers — Mars and Venus — are presently lost in the fog of Neptune. Confusion rules. Take it easy out there, stargazers, things are not quite as they seem.

1/12 :Aries: March 21 – April 19

Allow the humdrum to happen this week, Aries. Do your work and let schedules unfold with maximum flexibility on your part — things might not go to plan, but if you anticipate change, you’re in a better position to pivot and go with the flow.

You’ve grown in relationships this past year, learning so much about fairness and sharing with grace. You now have opportunities to demonstrate what poise and balance look like. Plus, good news: Career matters are set to shift, with progress resuming and success on its way.

2/12 :Taurus: April 20 – May 20

It will become apparent just how hard you’ve worked this past year, Taurus. Your dreams are due to resurface, and you might just feel a rebellious spark, urging you to escape the norm.

Your sense of pleasure is heightened now, with a hive of activity in your recreational zone stirring the senses. However, friends or peers have the potential to dilute your fun or even to confuse your sense of self-expression. Inject a sense of passion and creativity in all you do to satiate the stars.

3 /12: Gemini: May 21 – June 21

3/12 :Gemini: May 21 – June 21

The week ahead requires flexibility, Gemini. You’re presently inclined to reenergize home spaces and establish your foundations, yet it could be challenging achieving all you’d like on the domestic front. It’s a gorgeous time for both romance and nesting, yet the stars suggest disruption.

Worldly commitments and relationships are emphasized — significant partners, friends — and excitement calls. Be prepared to take others into consideration, yet strive for balance. You may have a fair idea of what’s fun for you, but you can bet that someone else has other ideas.

4/12 :Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Your immediate surroundings and closest ties continue to be emphasized now, crab. Relationships are due to take a turn in the right direction, allowing progress to resume across your key bonds. However, although there’s strength building in partnerships, be mindful of over-romanticizing your sense of connection.

Information gathered isn’t guaranteed to be reliable — perhaps you’re hearing what you want to believe, so check the hard facts. Home has flourished over the past year, yet commitments in your public life could unexpectedly interrupt your nesting this week.

5/12 :Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22

It’s a week for confident self-expression, but go easy, lion. You needn’t overdo it with your message. No doubt you’ve been feeling extra energized lately, Leo; however, this week, the stars ask you to connect using a discerning choice of words rather than your usual dazzling star power.

Your close ties to friends — and even siblings — have been significant this last year, and you can now begin to appreciate their place in your story. Yet you needn’t share everything, Leo, or give away your power.

6/12 :Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

It’s likely you’ve put firm foundations in place over the past few years, giving yourself a solid emotional core or true stability beneath you. The stars are presently emphasizing your talents but introducing an elusive quality to exchanges, so you must maintain confidence and your natural forte for precision.

You’ll soon be ready to powerfully express yourself, so for now, show resolve in your own capabilities. You’ve truly flourished in your role, bringing balance to your material obligations and finances — don’t let others rock the boat.

7/12 :Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

You’ve achieved plenty of growth with supreme adventures over the last 12 months, Libra. You can now acknowledge your journey, yet transitions are still underway. Ask, “What else am I passionately called to work through?”

It’s an ideal week for self-reflection, a time to focus on you — no matter how disruptive and distracting those around you appear to be. Afford yourself time to go into detail as you process the past. You can resume progress around a family matter that’s been on hold for several months.

8/12 :Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

You might have to navigate interesting terrain this week, Scorpio. Friends or social activities could be helpful yet confusing; social engagements or teamwork could prove elusive and without boundaries, prompting you to take a step back. It’s a positive time to reflect from the sidelines, as big things are coming your way.

Your guiding planet, Pluto, grinds back into action in your communication zone on Thursday. While it might not be immediately felt, you’re promised relief in your connection to others.

9 /12: Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

9/12 :Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

You’ve enjoyed a lucky networking streak for around a year now — perhaps helping you realize some big dreams or attracting an incredible team of cheerleaders. This week, however, tension rises — your social harmony is antagonized, with flashes of rebellion possible.

Though you’re thriving in the world, efforts could feel emotionally draining now, and unity shared within your group could seem suffocating. Philosophies in common with peers or colleagues might seem to compromise your solo passions — including romantic interests. You’re a wild horse, Sagittarius, but think before you break free.

10 /12: Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

10/12 :Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

This week, there’s emphasis on the growth you’ve achieved over the past year, Capricorn — your public face, visible position or career path. Home or emotional issues could influence how you’re seen by the world at large, with surprises sparked at base camp.

Though you’ve permission to launch, inaction — or indecision — is totally possible. There’s plenty enthusiasm for your vision, yet the facts could prove unreliable, making lift-off fizzle out. Self-propulsion is key. Thankfully, later in the week, personal progress will feel far easier to instigate.

11 /12: Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

11/12 :Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

Financial or relationship investments are on your radar now, Aquarius — and could stir up insecurities. Thankfully, your sense of trust is set to improve after Thursday, as you move forward from a five-month purge around some of your deepest feelings.

Entering into agreements can often spark vulnerability; however, don’t let the state of your private affairs result in statements you can’t undo. One of this week's challenges comes from a message you’re compelled to share. Be sure of your words — especially those broadcasted on a whim.

12/12 :Pisces: Feb. 19 – March 20

There’s emphasis on relating and collaboration, yet progress in a pair might be mysteriously challenging now, Pisces. This week throws a splash of tension into the mix, perhaps confusing what you want — and require — from others.

You’ve experienced growth over the past year, learning more about trust and loyalty and how to invest your resources — your time, money and influence. While it’s important a key individual respects your position, you may find the support you need is delivered from your wider network, which now grows stronger.
