It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life — from which sex position you should try to targeting your dream-career direction. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly horoscope for the week of September 26 through October 2.
The major astrological event happening this week is a new moon in Libra on Friday. This sweet moon will be particularly beneficial time for Librans to set ambitious personal goals, but — as is the case with all new and full moons — every sign will have the opportunity to harness its life-balancing, harmony-boosting energy for four days prior and four days after.
Meanwhile, water signs (Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisceans) can look forward to an emotionally fulfilling, dreamy time around Saturday, when the planet of love, Venus, currently in Scorpio, forms a positive angle to Neptune (spirituality, inspiration, intuition) in Pisces.
But this week isn't only about daydreams and romance. On Tuesday, Mars, the planet of action and sex, moves into Capricorn, encouraging us all to not only to set practical goals, but go after them with unrelenting determination.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You'll likely feel the effect of Friday's new moon in your seventh house of partnership all week long. Whether you've been struggling to get on the same page when it comes to nighttime feedings or childcare pickup, now's your chance to express yourself in a assertive, but diplomatic way. Then, hear your partner out, and figure out the best solution as a team. Whatever game plan you come up with should have a positive, reverberating effect.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Friday's new moon is in your sixth house of health, and routine is a key opportunity to make a resolution that will improve your wellness. Strategize the childcare situation, and then do that yoga class or meditation app. Prioritizing your self-care this week offers a sweet, lasting boost to your vitality and centeredness.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
On Tuesday, Mars — which rules all things action, passion, and determination — moves into your eighth house of sexual intimacy, where it hangs 'til November 9. You're going to want to get a few date nights or an impromptu getaway on the calendar like, right now, so that you and your partner can act on all that sexual tension bouncing between you. If you're single, don't hesitate to swipe right and call the sitter; chances are, it's gonna be a good time.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
On Saturday, love planet Venus — which is currently in your fifth house of romance — forms a supportive angle to spiritual Neptune in your ninth house of adventure. Loved ones are bound to make you feel like a freakin' queen right now. You're always taking care of everyone else, so it's OK to get pampered and swept up in a fantasy once in a while. You deserve it.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
As the lioness of the zodiac, you usually have no trouble asserting yourself. But your ruling planet, the sun, and lucky Jupiter are working even more in your favor on Monday, when they pair up in your third house of communication. A burst of confidence compels you to speak up about that new gig, promotion, or anything else you desire. If it's the right opportunity for you RN, it's sure to work out.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
When romantic Venus — currently in your third house of communication —forms a positive angle to spiritual Neptune in your seventh house of partnership on Saturday, you'll do well to have a heart-to-heart with your partner or a loved one about that tough emotional issue that's been weighing on your mind. You usually over-think before you speak, but know that you can say exactly what you feel now, and you'll have an even better shot at getting in sync.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Chances are you'll feel the exciting effects of Friday's new moon in your sign all week. You've got a unique, once-a-year opportunity to set goals and plant seeds you want to see grow. You may want to hold yourself accountable by sharing your dream with your SO and maybe even your kids and starting a bullet journal to stay organized. Anything you can imagine and set your heart on will be yours.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
On Saturday, when the planet of love Venus — currently in your sign — forms a supportive angle to the planet of spirituality Neptune in your fifth house of romance, you can bank on a fantasy coming true. OK, maybe it's just having your mom or the sitter come over to watch the baby, so you and your partner can get out of the house for a two-hour lunch date, but still! Let yourself get carried away a little bit, and you'll feel emotionally fulfilled on a whole new level.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
On Monday, transformative Pluto, which has been retrograde since April 17, finally moves forward in your second house of income. Whether you want to start a new business from home or switch up some of your personal investments, now's the time to do the research and get the wheels in motion. Making changes that are as bold as they are pragmatic will really pay off.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Mars, the planet of action, passion, and determination, moves into your sign on Tuesday, where it'll hang out until November 9. As a result, you feel like you can take on all of the mommy-and-me classes, volunteer projects, girls' nights, etc. OK, yes, you can probably add a couple more commitments to your iCal right now, but don't feel like you have to say "yes" to everything — just the things you're truly psyched about.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You know that seemingly wacky but truly innovative idea you've had up your sleeve for a while now? (Like selling handmade jewelry on Etsy or designing a breastfeeding app?) Well, on Saturday, artistic Venus in your tenth house of career and professional recognition trines spiritual Neptune in your second house of income. Your creative juices are sure to be flowing in an exhilirating way. Don't discount anything as too wild. This could be the start of something huge.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Once transformative Pluto, which has been retrograde since April 17, is direct again in your eleventh house of networking and friendship, socializing with your friends will be the key to professional success. (Maybe banding together with your BFFs to sell old baby swag on Poshmark or at an old-school yard sale brings in some extra cash, or you're pumped to join your friend who sells Pampered Chef.) Whatever venture you're most inspired by, don't go at it solo. Teamwork FTW.
