Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Your attention turns to relationships and business now, Aries. The planet Mars is adding enthusiasm and a certain degree of aggression to your thinking and communicating. Whether you are courting new clients, pitching an idea, forging business alliances, or pushing a sweetheart to a deeper level of relating, you are madly planning, talking, texting, e-mailing, and phoning. There is a tidal quality to your energy. Although your energy is strong and purpose-driven in work and relationship and you are 100% involved and present while engaging others, you have chunks of time where you crave retreat and withdraw into yourself. It is extremely important that you do this. Friends and groups may be bombarding you with information and opinions that overwhelm your decision-making abilities. Your intuitive guidance is infallible, but you can’t receive it unless you take time to disengage from everyone and everything else at times during the course of a very busy week. A scheduled meditation time daily can keep you at peak performance physically and mentally. A new beginning in a committed relationship or business partnership could be the end result of a driven week.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Love seems to be all you need this week, Taurus. Work may require you to pay attention and solve a problem or teach a method to others at the beginning of the week. After that, you may just go through the motions while your thoughts are on your partner or soon-to-be partner. Whether your romance is old or new, it can be all-consuming. The next best thing to having things for a Taurus is sharing things with someone they love. You and a lover may be so besotted with each other that you want to have a business together so you will never be apart. That is a fantastic idea and the planets support combining love and career, but take some time to double check before investing money in a new endeavor. There is one planetary aspect this week that can cause deception, distortion, and confusion in your business and career sector. Plan now but hold off on any investments or business changes until after the new moon of this coming weekend.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
“It’s not what you do, it’s who you know,” is only partly correct, Gemini. This week, it’s some of both plus a few other ingredients that create new successful beginnings for you in work or in love. Determined willpower that insists on bending good things in your favor, following hunches and signs, connecting with the right people at the right time, and plain old hard work is your arsenal of energy weapons. The planets are infusing you with some feisty martial energy and strong strategic mental skills. Power and strength can be a potent aphrodisiac. While you are steeped in this intoxicating energy, you may find yourself attracting a partner who has a similar vibration. Don’t believe everything you hear this week, check all correspondences and appointment times twice, and avoid signing important papers until after the new moon of this weekend.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
A fresh, delightful, childlike energy perks up your work and relationships this week, Cancer. Underneath the bubbling creativity and imagination is a serious base note that is helping you find ways to capitalize on your art, crafts, design, writings, teaching, or some other unique talent. Your entrepreneurial spirit is strong and you have the ideas and energy to build a business of your own now. Some Crabs may be arriving at the decision to start or add to a family – the new addition could be a child or a pet. The new moon of this weekend is activating a fresh cycle of being a creator and nurturer in some area of your life. You can read the horoscope for your rising sign to learn where you might make good use of this energy. A business or romantic partner may be unsure of your plans and ideas. Allow them to ask meaningful questions, give sincere answers, and they will support you in your new beginning after the new moon of this weekend passes.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
The core essentials of who you are, what is important to you, and what you need in life are brought into your awareness by the energy of the new moon this week, Leo. Your family is extremely important to you and you work hard to see that your home and family are prepared. Prepared for what? A century or more ago, this time of year would have been a busy time of chopping wood, hunting, and repairing holes in a cabin in preparation for the winter. Maybe genetic memory, the cooler weather, planetary transits, and your Leo leadership qualities are sending you that “be prepared” message. You may find yourself buying things like winter clothes, extra canned goods, down quilts, insulation, weather stripping, and batteries. As you are busy thinking of what you need, you are noticing all that you do not need. You eliminate clutter, unused objects, and anything that feels negative or draining. If you live with a partner or children, please consult them before making any changes. What you think is best for all may not be best for them. Everyone has their own attachments and releasing them is a personal thing. Avoid getting emotionally caught up in conspiracy theories or 2012 prophecies this week – they may give you nightmares and tempt you to build an underground bunker.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Ooh, you are liking the newness of this fresh month, fresh week, and fresh new moon, Virgo. You are emerging from a slightly reclusive and insightful weekend and you may feel reborn. All this freshness has you feeling crisp, clean, sharp, and ready to make things happen. The week may begin with a beauty makeover or closet overhaul. You want to look as new as you feel with new hair and new clothes. Now you are ready to fill empty squares on the calendar with the names of friends you plan to meet this month. You love the reconnecting and catching up on news that the approaching holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas brings. Some of your trips around town this week may be for the purpose of early gift shopping. One planetary lesson for you currently is wise use of your money. The more you comparison shop, the more you save and the more you learn your planetary lesson. Some habit or lifestyle choice of your mate or potential partner could be a real turnoff for you. You may have to tell them you love them, but you don’t like their (fill in the blank) and then hope they will change, choose to accept them as they are, or let them go. You may not know what they will do or how you should decide until after the new moon passes.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
I see Mr. Krabs from SpongeBob SquarePants running around yelling, “Money, money, money!” when I look at your week, Libra. The new moon of this coming weekend sets off a new cycle of financial mastery, increased income, maturity, self reliance, and possible changes at work. Money can have negative thoughts and emotions associated with it as well as positive. As you begin this new week and new month, you may find yourself noticing the things you think, say, or do that keep you from being more abundant. You currently have planets helping you exert self control and willpower to become a self-empowered, self-directed person and they can help you release the blocks and negative emotions you may have around money. A cosmic lesson for you now is learning that security is an inner quality that is not dependent upon any person, place, thing, or condition. You could become excited about a new business opportunity, self employment idea, work or exercise equipment you are eager to do or have right now. Wait until after this weekend before you spend any money, even if it seems like an answer to prayers.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
A friend may turn to you for financial or moral support at the start of the week, Scorpio. You may not be keen to loan money, but you are happy to give them encouragement and guidance. The old adage, “If you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself,” applies to you now. Your view of society, the economy, politics, and the environment may be rather sober and serious. Deep down, it is making you feel heavy inside and you are growing tired of carrying an emotional burden for the collective. You know you can’t change everything, but you can probably think of something you can do as an individual that can make a difference. Necessity IS the mother of invention and you may be seeing a need you can fill with an invention, product, information, or service of your own. The Scorpio tendency to see only black or white, good or bad, all or nothing can be an asset that helps you find or create the best and only solution for something. Don’t let the worrying thought of how you will make things happen prevent you from doing this. You’ll find the horse to pull the cart after you load the cart.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Sometimes you have to work for money, Sagittarius. The beginning of the week reminds you of this. The planets are making you restless and physically active. If you have a job that uses physical energy, you won’t mind the effort, but if you have a desk job that keeps you contained in a cubicle, you may go kind of bonkers and look for any means of avoidance. Make time for physical activity to balance your mental activity or you could get too caught up in addictive substances, games, or other forms of escapism. The new moon energy affects you on the soul level. Skeletons in the closet will rattle, buttons will get pushed, and old hurts may come up for healing. Beliefs, faith, and doubt may also be explored. I like to look at the light side when I write a weekly horoscope; however, when I do see something heavy, it would be wrong if I said nothing. I have a big alert message for Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising people: If you have any addiction or major denial making your life dysfunctional in any way, admit it and deal with it now. It can be cleared and healed with this new moon. If you choose to do nothing, a whole new cycle of hard life lessons will be set in place. Self deception is your biggest barrier to a better life.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
You may be asked to teach or guide a group or be a company spokesperson this week, Capricorn. For the most part, you will enjoy this immensely, but not completely. There may be rules or regulations you must follow or one person who is out of synch with everyone else who tests the limits of your patience. Keep careful tabs on things like billable hours and receipts for things you buy or use that relate to your business and back those records up so they don’t get lost in the wash or another dimension. Money loaned to a friend may enter that zone of no return, too. The new moon brings you an awareness of the importance of Internet communication and social networking. You may be planning a website, marketing campaign, or establishing connections on sites like Twitter and Facebook. If you are considering paying for any web-based services or looking to buy computer equipment or software, do your comparison shopping this week and hold off on spending until next week when the transit which is causing lack of clarity passes.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Your gut instincts do not steer you wrong, Aquarius – it is your analytical mind that can knock you off track this week. Go with the flow and every time something comes up, ask yourself, “How or what do I feel about this?” Any time money is given to you or you are offered an opportunity to do a job you’ve never done before – but that someone wants to pay you for anyway – just say, “Thank you.” You are worth it and you will learn what you need to know as you go along. You are not quite sure that you can trust this vague, emotion-based means of moving through your week, but the more you follow your heart, desires, and feelings, the more you will see that it is a purely logical and precise system. A friend who thinks you are great could be the emotional equivalent of a cattle prod when it comes to matters of the heart. Everyone could use a cheerleader like that.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Your relationships are empowering and people want you to have what you want this week, Pisces. The new moon is opening the doors of your mind. Because it is a particularly broad area of life that this lunation highlights, I can’t be too exact in your forecast. Reading the horoscope for your rising sign can give you some extra clarity. You may meet fantastic new people who broaden your spiritual horizons; you may decide to return to school; you may write or publish a book; score a great job in the communication, teaching, or travel fields; or you may travel overseas. Midweek, an aspect occurs, which could be the mental equivalent of a life-changing epiphany or stroke of sheer genius. Just after the rush of excitement this aspect produces, another aspect that says “Whoa!” kicks in for a few days. Spend those days sitting with your new secret future and craft it to its full glory in your imagination. When the reluctance to parade your new thoughts passes, you will have a clear vision and direction to follow.
