Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Relationships, both personal and professional, are your primary concern this week, Aries. The personal variety appears to be easier and more enjoyable than the professional, but there can be a mutually rewarding business partnership that can be negotiated during the middle of your busy week. Negotiations will be another main topic. You seek and share information and utilize the power of the mind and persuasive speech to further your goals. Some may say you have a hidden agenda and they would be correct. Where you stand in life now – especially career-wise – feels like a rest stop, not a final destination. You may not even be consciously aware of the goal, but you feel deep down inside that something new, bigger, and better is possible. The power of future potential drives you now and you use your people and leadership skills to sway groups. The new moon on Sunday prompts a serious conversation with a lover or partner. It is important to you that long-range dreams are in harmony and you want the assurance of a commitment now. You want a partner to understand that the time you take to advance your own knowledge and career benefits not just you, but the relationship, as well.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Your job description may become unclear this week, Taurus. The planets indicate that you may currently be a jack of all trades in your work environment. Experimental, creative, or temporary assignments spring up like mushrooms now. Powerful passionate thoughts and words are flowing. The “I love you – do you love me?” conversations or the zeal you express over a subject close to your heart make those around you roll their eyes, but they have to admit that you’re a happier, more relaxed and flexible Bull when the love light is in your eyes. An on-the-job romance is possible now or joining forces with your mate to begin a business is another possibility now. Material gains can flow from a business partnership, marriage, or investments with the arrival of new moon energy on Sunday. If you are single and decide to choose just one person from among several potential partners, you may break a few hopeful hearts. Not everyone attracted to you now wants to hear, “Let’s be friends.”
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Word of mouth advertising and personal recommendations may increase your work load and income now. You really can’t complain about that, but you do wish you had more free time for creativity and socializing during this busy week. If you have any children, you may be busy with the mad holiday time crush that school seems to create, like field trips, plays, and Christmas parties. The new moon occurs on Sunday in your house of marriage and relationship. Other planetary placements indicate that you may be deeply appreciative of all your relationships now, especially the romantic variety. Geminis can be skittish when it comes to commitment because they fear boredom and they avoid anything that makes them feel pinned down. Lessons in the work of love and its empowering rewards come with the new moon for all Twins.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
New Year resolution time arrives early for you, Cancer. Perhaps turning your attention to preparing your home for the holidays or shopping the stores for gifts has made you aware of clutter and worn out things you own. Maybe you’ve been letting your diet and exercise routine slip as the added layers of warmer clothes hide extra pounds. This week, you will look at your environment and yourself and begin to change what you see. A friend, lover, or partner can easily be enlisted to help you tackle home improvement projects or walk and talk with you as you move toward your inner and outer fitness goals. The new moon energy of Sunday is encouraging you to make over your home and health. The moon may also be pressuring you to make a pitch for some changes at work or to consider a situation that affords you more personal flexibility or advancement.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Working on your home, decorating for the holidays, or preparing for winter gives you a feeling of contentment and accomplishment, Leo. The new moon of Sunday stirs up a favorite house in your chart – that of creativity, children, romance, and play. It is also the lion’s den, the house over which Leo rules; therefore, all is right in your world. Did I hear you grumble that money could be better? Consider a creative or crafty collaboration with a partner for a side stream of holiday cash. Looking too far into the future now can undermine the security and joy you feel living in the present moment. The old adage, “Take one day at a time,” is what the planets suggest now. Your thoughts are like cement, hardening quickly into reality almost as soon as you think them, so be vigilant and discard the sinkers and stinkers.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Creative ideas and an active imagination could be channeled in various directions, Virgo, depending on your natural inclinations. Some Virgos may be busy designing or decorating, others reading or writing. Social activity and catching up with friends is part of the holiday season that brings you pleasure. Virgo always likes to be in the know. This week, you want to be in style, too. Shopping the stores for gifts gives you the opportunity to find a few treasures for your own wardrobe or home now. Every Virgo friend I have enjoys dressing for the task or activity at hand. Get out your snowflake-pattern sweater or your Santa hat and hang the mistletoe while the planets are increasing your chances at love and romance. The new moon highlights home and psychological foundations. A new outlook on life or a new actual home may be in your near future.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
What an interesting week, Libra. Out of all the signs, I think the planets have the most to tell you now. For the last few months, you have been taking yourself more seriously, acting more mature, and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the world at large and at work. Now your mind asks, “Why?” It is time to analyze, examine, look at cause and effect, and possibly come up with a new attitude or program. It does not mean throwing everything away and starting at the beginning. The new moon on Sunday activates a new state of mind. Several Zen stories came into my mind as I looked at your chart as well as the statement, “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” Life is the same but very different for you after this weekend.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
I’ll get right to the good news, Scorpio – the new moon on Sunday can initiate a new prosperity in your life. The bad news (really, it’s not that bad) is that you have to want it. You have to scream to the Universe that you want it. You have to feel you deserve it. You have to let go of how it should happen. You have to stop looking at when it will arrive. You have to say yes to EVERY bit of money anyone offers you. That includes the dollar a nice old lady offers you for dumping her trash or money a friend offers you for gas when you give them a ride, or an unexpected offer to pay you for something you enjoy doing anyway, like taking photographs or baking. The Universe will be testing you to see just how serious you are about this whole money and abundance thing. So, what do you say when offered money? “Thank you! You are so gracious – I appreciate it so much!” Not, “No, no – I just couldn’t accept that.”
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
The Beatles singing “Revolution” popped into my head as soon as I saw your chart this week, Sagittarius. The new moon energy on Sunday sets you up for a new personal cycle. You would like to change the establishment, the work environment, become an activist for a cause and change the whole world, but for the moment, claiming your own personal power, discovering your current beliefs and values, and setting the course of your own life is a big enough revolution. Google the song and read the lyrics for further insight. You may feel deeply passionate about certain things in the present moment. That passion helps fuel your desire for a revolution, but do not be too attached to outcomes. Many thoughts and ideas now are passing fancies, so hold off on that tattoo or piercing.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Some deep questions arise for you this week, Capricorn. Who are you, really? Do you identify so deeply with what you do for a living that you have a successful career persona, but have lost sight of your own personal voice and expression? Are you a personality or an ego or something bigger outside of yourself or what? How attached are you to things being as you want them to be? What matters? The new moon on Sunday stirs the existential pot of soul soup. Because so many ingredients are in that soup based on your own personal life experience to date and past seeking, I really cannot be more specific in your forecast. Whether you read the tarot, the Tao, scriptures, or tea leaves – seeking wisdom and direction for your soul is the work of your week.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
I have heard this statement repeated in several places online lately, Aquarius – “Your personal income can never exceed your own self-worth.” Think more of yourself and more will naturally flow. Your own worries and fears now are your biggest stumbling blocks in matters of money and love. To paraphrase another Law of Attraction statement, “Looking at past failure only creates more failure.” The new moon energy on Sunday encourages you to seek out new friends, groups, or organizations that keep their sights set high and on the potential of the future. Commit your mind to positive thoughts and put the Law of Attraction to work. Any time your mind strays toward a negative thought, remind yourself that you just don’t go there anymore and your manifesting powers will grow stronger by the day.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
This week, you can show the world what you are really made of, Pisces. It is a week of personal excellence for you where you can teach, reach, and impress many people on the job, online, in groups, or through an organization. Weeks ago, I encouraged you to follow the guidance of the planets and allow your natural intuitive or healing abilities to become a part of your daily life and possibly to use them on the job. If you did, then your career may get a big boost now as the new moon on Sunday brings you fame or recognition in the outer world and career sector of your chart. Both personally and professionally, people love you, love what you do, and are saying the nicest things about you. The more you have been letting your soul shine, the more wonderful things will be flowing your way. Open to the unknown and expect sweet surprises.
