To my celestially advanced readers,
It would appear that I, Leona Moon, am no more immune to lunar eclipses than you or the average Joe. As the stars would have it, it appears that this will be my last column with you—culminating in a vibrant lunar eclipse in Aries on Sept. 27. I’ve enjoyed sharing every retrograde, baby warning, break-up debacle and eclipse with all of you. It’s been my honor, and pleasure, to serve you up the planetary happenings for the past two years. I bid you adieu, and send you all white light and love to your star charts.
Forever yours, Leona
Aries (March 21 – April 19) It’s here, Aries! The second part of the September eclipse madness will arrive on Sept. 27 with a lunar eclipse in Aries. A relationship integral to your very being will culminate or dissipate. One minute you may be drinking espresso and discussing Netflix’s Narcos, and the next you might be heading to Home Depot for packing boxes. Or you could find yourself poppin’ the question and bottles. Good luck!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Secrets, secrets are no fun unless you tell everyone, Taurus! If you’ve been hauling around a big ol’ hush-hush and it’s been weighing you down, it might be time to spill. The lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 is here to help you shed some emotional baggage. If you haven’t been keeping a secret, it’s likely that one of your co-workers might tell your boss how you really feel about those weekly check-in meetings.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) You’ve got a friend in him or her, Gemini! Sept. 27 ushers in friends from faraway places. Grab your nearest and dearest and set up a time to BBQ. If you have a friend from high school who moved away and got married, the lunar eclipse will bring him or her to your doorstep. Stock up on the Pabst and ping pong paddles.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) You’ve got one week, Cancer! One week until your boss resigns. The Sept. 27 lunar eclipse in Aries lands in your work sector—you might find yourself taking over as CEO of your company, or out on the streets. Gear up for some change-up at work, and stockpile some charm. The future is uncertain!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) All aboard, Leo! It’s time to ditch the home front—update your passport on Sept. 24, because this lunar eclipse will have you planning an international trip. Did your best friend move to Canada? Is your cousin building houses in Costa Rica? Do yourself a favor and join the mile high club. There’s more to see than In-N-Out and the Marin Country Mart.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Where did all of that money go from your third cousin removed aunt’s will, Virgo? We know, it’s a sensitive subject, but the lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 will solve all money matters—because let’s face it, money does matter to your practical self. If you aren’t expecting a chunk of change from a deceased relative—you might finally clear up your debt or receive a belated birthday check from your uncle.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Quick, where are the tissues, Libra?! The lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 is going to hit extra close to home, especially if your birthday falls within plus or minus five days of Sept. 27. You’ll likely find yourself sobbing over a borderline pathetic Today Show segment, or tearing up while looking at your rose garden. Everyone cries, but you might want to keep these as “me” moments and sob in solitude.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Your bill is here, Scorpio! Your new bill of health, that is. Flush those cigarettes down the toilet, call off that rager you’re scheduled for next weekend and make plans to attend your nearest Yogi retreat ASAP. You’ve been a little rambunctious lately and it shows. A hungover Scorpio isn’t good luck, and it’s even harder to control that stringer when you’re dehydrated. Make a conscious effort to focus on your health on Sept. 27.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Love is always in the air, Sagittarius! What does the lunar eclipse have in store for you? An epic blind date from Tinder, that’s what. Make sure you’ve lined up all of your ducks—clean laundry, clean sheets, deodorant and no dirty dishes. This one might just wow you—lunar eclipses have a way of ushering in wonderful surprises.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Renovations are underway, Capricorn! Are you working on a huge DIY project like building your very own tiny house or adding on a duplex to your plex? Maybe you’re just adding the finishing touches with new furniture—whatever it is, the lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 will bring a friendly finishing varnish to your wildest Martha Stewart dreams.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Don’t sign on the dotted line, Aquarius! Looks like someone wants your John Hancock and he or she wants it now. Listen up—Mercury is retrograde until Oct. 9, which means that no one gets your autograph. The lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 will bring in a stream of offers, but make sure you go with the one that allows you some leeway.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) What was that thud in your mailbox, Pisces? An extra wad of cash—the lunar eclipse on Sept. 27 will finally have you recognized for all of your arduous, dedicated work. Money has been tight, but let the era of lunch break shopping and easy spending commence. Time to treat yourself!
