Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Some spiritual root canal of your soul takes place this week, Aries. The new moon in Pisces on the 4th takes you down, down, down into the deep recesses of the closet where you stuff things. In general, Aries doesn't have too much personal baggage because the Ram is quick to act in the immediate moment and rarely wallows in the past. But Aries can knock people down and ignore the needs of others when they have their strong minds set on getting what they want. The new moon energy will be replaying all kinds of relationship memories for you so that you can rid your closet of bad feelings, regret, unrequited love, forsaken love, and times you could have been more loving. You feel an imperative need to bring all your relationships into a better balance. Forgiveness is the tool that can help you do that. By the end of this week, you will have more love in your heart for everyone, including yourself.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
The planets want you to work on your popularity factor, Taurus, because a group or an audience is waiting for you to join in with your steady presence and placid calm that knows just what to do next, every step of the way. I see the same reluctance you have felt at various other times in the last few months to appear to be too powerful or smart interfering with your confidence. Absolutely no one will think you are being lazy if you let go of the hands-on, practical work and step into the role of networker and guide. It's time to step up from the level of apprentice to the role of master so you can teach and inspire other people. Beauty and balance are involved somehow. If you are a Bull who works in theater, music, or design, your work can reach new levels of inspiration and recognition because you will be channeling heart energy through your art.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
The creative process of making a business a success can alter time for you this week, Gemini. You will get caught up in that sense of time standing still as your imagination and spiritual idealism come together in what seems like the perfect balance. You are not just playing at flowers, fairy dust, and saving the world, one person at a time - you are working hard at it, and you have enormous drive and staying power because you love what you are doing now. If you keep your energy high and your mind open to the impossible, you could be surprised by success or popularity that seems miraculous but completely gentle and natural. Communicate what you have learned about relationships, love, and spirituality, because the world can never have too much love.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
The expansion of your mind or your boundaries in the outer world is possible this week, Cancer. The new moon activates an area of your chart that can manifest as many different scenarios depending on your age and stage in life. The one thing that should be the same for all Crabs this new moon is a little whisper in the ear that says, "Do this now or you may never get another chance." It could be a return to school, a once-in-a-lifetime trip, relocating to a new home in a distant location, self-publishing a book, or a decision to live a more balanced, purpose-driven life rather than a mainstream existence. All twelve signs will have a sense of now-or-never energy during this new moon, but you will feel it more deeply than most and your decisions and changes made now will feel like a new foundation of cement being poured on which the next stage of your life will be built.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
You are mentally aware of life on at least two levels this week, Leo. The metaphysical and spiritual realm is as prominent in your life now as the mundane, material, physical work-a-day world you move through so efficiently. Both your heart and mind are being affected by the new moon energy. The power of an open heart becomes apparent as you notice yourself drawing things to you effortlessly just by thinking about them while in a heightened state of bliss and awareness. Time could play tricks on you this week, too, as you slip in and out of dimensions and merge with people on the emotional level. You can't play around in the unified field without noticing you are really one with everyone else! Merging with a mate now can affect you profoundly and your relationship may have a depth of intimacy never reached before. Now is a good time to examine all your relationships past and present to see what the hidden gift is.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
What are the most important things to you in relationship, especially a marriage or committed partnership, Virgo? The new moon of the 4th highlights your 7th house of the other, marriage, or your hidden self. The Pisces planets become even more mystical and romantic placed here because it is a house of relating. They activate Saturn in Libra, the sign of relating, which also happens to rule the 7th house, by aspect now. Saturn is in your 2nd house of finances, personal values, and self-worth. Whether you are in a serious relationship or not, this strong dynamic is suggesting you meditate upon love, relationship, your values, and your feelings of worthiness in love. Do you appreciate and value yourself and your mate? Have you over-idealized your mate or undervalued yourself? What qualities do you value in your mate or require from a dream partner who has yet to materialize? Clear your mind and balance your heart. Set your intention for spiritually correct relationships.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Libra, I suggest you read my astrological trends report this week to get a better idea of how the new moon may affect you. Where I refer to a juggler, I may as well be referring to you. You can only do so much. Your family or partner may be telling you the same thing, but you've been seriously "shoulding" on yourself. Now it is time to do some serious sorting and prioritizing while the new moon activates your house of health, work, and service. Energy also flows from that house to your 1st house of self and your physical body. Have you been working overly hard or neglecting your own personal need for exercise, rest, or good nutrition? Or maybe you have been too concerned with your weight or appearance and have taken health and exercise regimens to an extreme. One way or another, a striving to be perfect may have knocked you off-balance and the new moon will force you to return to a more normal, relaxed, and accepting state of being. If you have been working hard, but without a higher purpose, you can find a way to change that. Life is too short to feel you are sacrificing it to a paycheck. If this resonates with you, ask your soul to guide you to your life purpose and true work.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Make your week one of experiential learning, Scorpio. You are currently an interesting mix of observer, participant, and recluse. You are also an emotional sponge about to overflow. You are so soppy with feeling that your excess needs to pour out as creative artistic or musical expression before you find other less constructive distractions, like alcohol or endless TV watching. One of the best ways to retreat and not be found by those who know you is to go find new people who don't know you. Then you can put on any role you wish or simply sit back and let people watch. I suggest you spend time with the very young, the very old, and a few animals this week. They will get your creativity flowing and help you lose the jaded ennui or sense of morbid futility you may have wrapped around yourself as armor against your past pain or mindless routines. The new moon is encouraging you to believe you can have your heart's desire, and that something too good can be true. For those wanting to conceive a baby, now is a fertile time.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Yesterday, I saw something in a travel magazine about joining the Peace Corps at any age in an article about working vacations. There are more ways and locations to do a good turn for the earth and her people than you can imagine, Sagittarius. The new moon this week is sending you the message that the earth is your home. You could find yourself going greener and making more conscious choices in how you live your daily life. You could also decide to join a group or organization that is actively doing good things for the planet and the creatures that call Earth home. You are taking the interconnectedness of all living things, and your part in that connection, seriously. Even if your life is too settled and mainstream for you to join the Peace Corps, there are ways you can make a real difference in your own community. Your view of life changes when you think of strangers as part of your family and an open heart gives you a sense of belonging wherever you live.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
The new moon this week brings you the blessing of the Golden Rule and magnifies the power of positive thought, Capricorn. The planets are showing you that people are basically all the same and are motivated by the same basic needs and desires. No one is better, no one is more or less deserving of anything. The mirroring effect is strong for you now. When you are full of gratitude, the world gives you great things. When you are feeling grumpy and treat people miserably, the world seems dark and difficult. What you get is what you choose to think and notice. You may have already learned these concepts through books on the Law of Attraction or movies like "The Secret," but this week, you can see a direct cause and effect relationship between your thoughts and the degree of your successes.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Disciplined work you have been doing on transforming your beliefs and releasing fear finally begins to bear fruit this week, Aquarius. The new moon creates a big stir in your 2nd house of finances, self-worth, and personal values. Venus slides into your sign, giving you an extra dose of self-love, too. Some communications or contacts you made a while back, but have forgotten about, could seek you out with opportunities to increase your income. Writing, teaching, gathering information, or taking classes can also be a way to expand your earning power. You feel the potential of greater prosperity coupled with the mindset that expects big things. The alchemy of the planets can make your financial dreams more real than ever before and you master the art of creative visualization through mental discernment and the application of positive emotions.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Happy New Year, Pisces! This is your annual new moon shining its crescent sliver of light on you. All the signs get a fresh start this week, but the potential wrapped up in your new beginning is especially potent because six planets are infused with Pisces energy now as they move through your sign. You've got a posse of Pisces planets at your back, so what are you going to do? The Pisces sun and moon exchange supportive energy with serious Saturn in strategy-minded Libra in the intensely metaphysical 8th house in your chart. Venus and Neptune are gently encouraging your spirit with love and faith in your 12th house of your subconscious. "As you will it, so mote it be," applies to you now, so use your will wisely. Tune into yourself fully now and plan your week, month, and year around your intentions. Spiritual self-realization is attainable now, if that is your goal.
