Transplanting in the fall risks losing some of the bloom buds, which are already formed. Early spring has the same risk. You could wait until right after it blooms which happens to be when the shrub should be pruned. If having blooms is most important to you, prune and transplant your shrub after it blooms. Otherwise either right now or early spring is OK. If you transplant this fall, water it all the way to December so it isn't dehydrated going into cold weather. If it is a large shrub, look carefully underneath it. Wherever a branch stays in contact with the ground, it will root. You essentially have another plant and it may be easier to transplant this baby shrub.
