The new moon is on Saturday, September 28, 1:26 pm CDT in 5° Libra. Projects that have to do with working in partnership with others are highlighted. As an air sign Libra has to do with interpersonal communications, so it could be a good time to catch up with people through phone, email or social media. Frame your written thoughts carefully so that they are tactful and diplomatic.
Pluto is going direct on October 3 at 20° Capricorn. This Pluto stationary point is in effect at least a week on either side of that date. Pluto intensifies our ambitions and may make us aware of our hidden motivations or deep desires. In Capricorn, this planetary placement can make us or the people around us "bossy". In other words, everyone is certain their ideas are right and that their "suggestions" will be well received.
You can balance this by being a considerate and respectful listener but stand your ground (politely) if necessary. Not a good time to initiate a fight or argument.
Pluto in Capricorn energy is perfect though for applying new systems of organization or doing a Marie Kondo style clean-out.
