Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin. Does this quote call to your heart, Aries? I suspect it might, with the full moon energy of this week in your sign. You are becoming more aware of your unique talents or ways of thinking and may be wondering if greater exposure is worth the risk. Unusual ideas can translate into unusual work or connecting with new people, either face to face or on the Internet. You will find yourself unable to suppress your viewpoints and willing to assert yourself despite any negative feedback. Relationships may move to deeper levels as you open up more and discuss subjects with deeper meaning. As the week unfolds and the moon sets off a new cycle of personal growth for you, you realize it is no longer possible to live on a purely superficial level when you are aware of the connection between your thoughts and the life you manifest around you.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
A shifting of your internal values and subconscious motivations is possible this week, Taurus. Work, health, career, groups, and friends are prominent. How you view your work and the career path you have chosen may occupy your thoughts. Recently, the planetary energy has offered you opportunities to join with a group or spend time in activities with friends. The result of more connections to people-centered activity is that the world and what you can do to be of service in it has had more of a pull than your personal life. The full moon energy will make you aware of the correlation between glad giving of your time and energy that makes you feel vital, happy, and strong versus begrudgingly putting in time and energy just to get by creating stress, depression, loss of physical stamina, or illness. Right livelihood and right attitude are your lessons this week. The planets are sending support to you that helps keep romantic relationships moving along smoothly, too.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Writing, teaching, communicating, and creating are still keeping you busy as any Gemini can possibly be. The problem for you may be not enough time. Another potential problem is the effect on your energy levels and physical body of too much time spent in intense mental activity along with too little sleep. Pay attention to your diet and exercise this week. Get your needed sleep and take those vitamins. The proper balance of work, play, and self-care will make all the difference as the week progresses. Do you want to take a break of your own deliberate choosing to go within during this full moon, or do you want to push and ignore your physical needs until you succumb to a cold or headache that forces you to slow your pace? A business agreement may be made with an established and financially secure company that allows you to use your communication skills.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Changes in tastes and style are possible, Cancer. As you change, some friends may object to your new interests, activities, or choice of a partner. True friends will stay true, but friendships based on convenience, expectations, or “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” will fall away. Be careful with the use of shared resources or investments. Freeing up saved money to travel or advance your education is a wise choice, but investing in speculative ventures or gambling may result in loss. Some Crabs find strength and comfort in their marriage; other Crabs may be making commitment decisions. Love affairs and romances may move a step closer to the altar now. The full moon may bring you some recognition for your efforts at work or, if you have been looking for a job, a good opportunity may come your way now.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
You are busier than usual this week, Leo. The demands of home and family are almost as great as those of work and your business activities. Work-at-home Leos may find the boundaries between home office and the children’s homework blurring or the time spent on work activities shifting to the normal “off” hours. Your schedule has gone topsy-turvy. An increase in communication and running about on errands nibbles at your schedule, too. And if that isn’t enough, love and romance are heating up. You are not one to do love in a small way when you are in love. Unfortunately, I do not see the planets cutting you sufficient slack in the time department this week for wining, dining, and dating. If you want to deepen the connection with a lover or mate, you will have to do it in your own lair. While the planets are helping you in the area of home and family, take a moment to feng shui your bedroom. If it’s not a den of sensuous seduction and intimate seclusion, why not?
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
I heard the word “power” when looking at your chart for this week, Virgo. The full moon brings an issue of money, investment, or personal values to completion. Somehow, there is something you end, wash your hands of, or let go of that may have had a deep significance or emotional attachment for you. Now you feel self-contained and ready to go ahead with something on your own. The planets are calling upon you to use your sharp mind and communication skills now. Creative ideas are bubbling; friends are seeking your ideas, wisdom, and support. The full moon activates psychic and empathetic abilities for you. The psychic opening will allow you to channel and direct healing energy to yourself or through you to others. This energy is powerful and pure. Having a ceremony or meditation to honor the passing of the old and beginning of the new can help you direct the energy to an area of your life where you desire a strong fresh start.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
A greater personal integration and sense of totality awaits you this week, Libra. Your maturing process and commitment to personal excellence has settled in as a reality for you and others are now accepting it as fact, too. Your decision to become more is now bringing more abundance to you. The only major challenge the planets are presenting for you this week involves irrationally spending your money on something or someone. It could be a lover, a child, a pet, or a personal passion. You are either willing to make the financial sacrifice or you may be unable to see the deception or folly behind it. Investing in a lover’s band when you know the music is terrible is an example – just an example! – that can give you an idea of your money challenge this week. The full moon increases both your self respect and your appreciation of supportive relationships in your life.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
A change in your neighborhood or home environment is possible, Scorpio. Changes that have been happening for you at the soul level may cause you to wake up one day this week humming the Talking Heads song, “Once in a Lifetime.” Everything is the same as it ever was, but it is your perception that is different. Now your home and your haunts feel different. Will you look for a new place to live after the full moon? Maybe – or maybe you will adjust to the new place you are at internally. Life is a bit like gazing at M. C. Escher staircases now. The full moon energy can make you intensely aware of the mind-body connection. You can tap into this consciously and decide to experience greater health and well being in your life. Sexual energy can be powerful for you now and your intimate relationships may be more physical and less cerebral this week.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Have you ever read The Life of Pi, Sagittarius? The story is as brilliantly original and captivating as you are. Imagine being cast adrift in a lifeboat in the ocean after a shipwreck with a tiger for company. No, I do not see you in a boat with a tiger, per se, but I do see you hopping this way and that energetically. You don’t mind an adventure when you have the reins, the sail, or wheel in your hand, but this week you have more passive, receiving energy than active, projecting energy. Things are coming at you that you cannot control and you must be constantly aware and living in the present moment as much as possible. If you are living an alternative lifestyle, outside of the mainstream, I suggest you seek a commune or living/working situation such as a care take or house sit arrangement that allows you to be passive while your basic needs are being met. For the next few weeks, you are craving some retreat time so you can redefine your objectives.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
You are known by the company you keep, Capricorn. This week, you may be reinventing yourself as you associate with big thinkers, inspired idealists, and the movers and shakers. You are often a bit of a loner because having such strong leadership energy places you in charge of people. Being both a boss and a friend can be awkward at times. The full moon energy may direct you to a group of people who are powerful and proactive. Law of Attraction, Master Mind, Positive Thinkers, or some other affirmative principles may be the common thread that they share. Pumping up your positive thinking with other people can give you the sensation of power and control that you love in an atmosphere of acceptance and mutual support that your spirit needs. By the way, when was the last time you read or wrote a poem? Words and images are healing for you now.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
The full moon has you seeking and searching, Aquarius. Your mind is certain that there is something you should be doing or could be doing to improve your life, if you just knew what it was. Aries energy is to blame for thinking it all comes down to you. First, decide what it is that you want or need and then ease back on the how. Give the Universe a chance to deliver your request or show you a sign. Work and income are key areas now. You may find that you will make allowances or sacrifices in order to keep money flowing. A legitimate home employment opportunity is possible. An old belief pattern instilled when you were young can be healed now. Some Aquarians may face a fear of parenthood or have a challenge with a parent, most likely the mother. Dreaming of a home of your own or a move to a different environment may have you browsing the real estate offerings in distant locations.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Pisces, there is a book I read years ago called Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self by Sandra Ingerman. As I looked at the interplay of planetary energy within your chart, I thought, “Time for a soul retrieval.” You have planets of growth and change shaking you up almost daily. The full moon is directing your emotions to your personal values so that you can pull together as a whole person. The moon is also shining revealing light on the parts of you that feel lost, hurt, or abandoned. There is a huge sea of potential future and directions you are tempted to follow, but how can you if you don’t feel whole and all-together? The planets presently indicate a strong friend, mentor, or guide who can listen, understand, and help you gather and heal your fragmented parts. Once you feel whole again, it will be much easier to choose a direction for your future.
