New opportunities present themselves. People around Aries tend to be unreliable for a few hours
during Thursday, especially when it comes to social agreements. Some will bail out of arrangements
during the evening.
September's Libran New Moon is indicative of imminent changes in the spheres of work and health.
Matters are likely to peak within the ensuing two weeks. Thursday evening has a few surprises in
store for Taurean individuals that shake their confidence. Don't race through tasks and ensure you
are thorough in your work.
September's New Moon indicates that a wonderful new romance or baby is likely to enthral Geminis
of all ages, whether this is directly or indirectly related to you. Something towards which you are
working meets with unexpected setbacks on Thursday evening. There could also be an unexpected
disturbance to social plans.
Take the opportunity to initiate something positive. Career pathways take unexpected deviations
during Thursday evening, with the exposure of weaknesses in plans. It is difficult to obtain
recognition for your efforts then.
A new car may be in the offing for many. Life can generally be unsettling for Leo during Thursday
evening, bringing unexpected alterations of routines. Your partner or their family may be
responsible for these events.
If you have any new ideas for improving your income, then the two weeks following September's
New Moon is excellent for exploring and cultivating this potential. However, things don't work out
quite as you planned during Thursday evening, when work is disrupted and finances are unsteady.
Chronic health conditions are aggravated then.
Libra is excited by life's possibilities during Thursday evening, even though it may take you on
interesting twists and turns. An important relationship figures in this turn of events.
Deal with problems as they arise, trying to nip them in the bud before they gain influence. Concerns
over a family member preoccupy Scorpio for a while on Thursday evening. Unexpected events tend
to distract you from your normal work activities then.
Life offers snippets of excitement during Thursday evening that challenges Sagittarian creativity.
Unexpected romantic developments or with a child prove distracting then.
New beginnings are indicated around a parent, work or life direction during the next two weeks.
This is an annual event so look at making improvements where possible. Your domestic situation
is unsettled during Thursday evening as you grapple with impending change. It is important for
Capricorn to remain flexible at this time.
New courses are being considered. Unexpected twists and turns certainly make for an interesting
time during Thursday evening, although Aquarian individuals may wish that life wasn't so interesting.
This is the time to plant the seeds of financial growth, particularly with joint interests. Pisceans feel
a little unsteady during Thursday evening as financial instability threatens momentarily. Don't act
on impulse then, especially when it comes to income security.
Story subservient to set design

the same as in other films.
The futuristic visual design stands
out but detaches the audience from
