Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
With so many planets transiting your sign, it's no wonder why you are feeling both excited and stressed this week, Aries. The new moon will be highlighting your 1st house of self at the end of the week, but before it gets there, it keeps you busy in other areas. One of these is the area of friends, groups, and organizations. There may be some stress surrounding relationship as a result of your other interests and activities. If someone is wanting to monopolize your time or keep you from socializing with others, they are liable to see some of that Aries imperious attitude. It's not that you are adverse to commitment, it's just that you can't do any relationship that won't allow you to be an individual with many interests. Pioneer energy is strong for you and being free to explore and meet new people is vital to your very essence. Right before the new moon, you will need to retreat and consider what makes you happy and what you feel you can't live without. Next week, and the rest of the month, you can begin the process of eliminating the negative and attracting more of the positive. Hold off on major changes until retrograde Mercury in your sign goes direct on April 23rd.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Some of the communication or information gathering you were busy with last week continues at the beginning of this week, Taurus. The new moon on Sunday occurs in the 12th house of your subconscious. It is a house that also has to do with hospitals, prisons, drug or alcohol addictions, dreams, meditation, altered states, spirituality, and the connection to the collective. The new moon is amplified by other planets joining it and is challenged by the restrictive nature of Saturn in the sign of socially-correct Libra in your 6th house of work, service, and health. On the mundane level, Bulls may be having work or health issues arise. Some of you may simply become more aware of what is going on internally and how you are physically affected by your thoughts and emotions. The new moon may bring something to culmination and now you must decide what to do next. Saturn in Libra emphasizes the importance of doing what is right in a way that is good for both parties.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
The limelight is calling, Gemini. You are an imaginative, communicative soul and the planets are helping you stay focused on your masterpiece or performance now. The Twins are great equalizers, making instant and fast friends when they meet new people. Gemini is able to look past things like income or social status and immediately pair or mirror with the other person's mind on some level. The new moon is giving you all the creativity and friends you could possibly want; however, you find yourself standing alone in the midst of the crowd and it feels a bit strange. Didn't you realize that, while you were busy making a name for yourself or presenting yourself as a teacher or authority on a subject, you would have to stand apart from the crowd? Now that you are becoming popular because people want to be like you or know what you know, you have to take yourself seriously when it comes to income. The new moon will help you settle into a leader role and be firmer about requesting compensation for your time and energy.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Business, money, security, family, and home issues are your focus for the first half of the week, Cancer. Some of you who have a job may be feeling that it is just not enough or it lacks a higher purpose or a future potential. However, if you are married or have a home and family, making major career changes can affect your relationship or home life. It looks like the first part of the week finds you examining your family and finances, followed by talks and plans for the future. When the new moon arrives this weekend in your 10th house of career and social standing in the outer world, you may come to a final work decision that really comes down to being true to yourself.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Love, love, love, love, business and money, love! It's a romantic week for you, Leo. You could be thinking about love, talking about love, and seeking love or spending more time with your mate. Together, you are making future plans. In between, there is some focus on longer-term money and building your business, if you have one of your own. If not, look over investments, insurance, or tax matters midweek. The new moon joins a cluster of planets in the sign of Aries in your 9th house of foreign travel, philosophy, and higher education. It opposes Saturn in your 3rd house, where it has been making you chief problem-solver, politician, and sales person. Honestly, the 9th house, which I call the jack of all trades house, has so many options for you. What helps you the most is the fact that you are a fire sign, so the extra fire of the Aries new moon will literally fire up your mind. Now, what you are going to do with that fire, only you can decide. It will probably be new, big, original, and exciting. Back to school? A sailboat ride around the world? A new business idea or invention?
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Don't they say that most people work for their money, but rich people put their money to work for them? I may not have the quote exactly correct, but you know what I mean. This week, an opportunity for you to put your money to work for you could present itself or you could make a job of finding out how to leverage what you have into more without expending too much effort. Virgo is not afraid to work or get dirty and often steps in to do a job in order to have it done correctly, but given the choice, I know you prefer being clean and having the means to pay experts to do things you would rather not. Single Virgos could be yearning for romance and boldly looking for a dream partner. Virgos with a mate could be making time to have romantic dinners and dates together. The new moon takes place in the 8th house of your chart, which is a deep water house that covers many aspects of life - sex, death, taxes, insurance, investments, inheritances, real estate, and business partnerships. The new moon in that house may bring a culmination or crisis along with a change and a fresh start in one or more of those subjects. Intimacy, boundaries, shared values, or a sharing of some kind of energy is the focus of the new moon.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Libra, the new moon this week affects you almost as deeply as it does your opposing sign of Aries, because you both sit on the relationship axis in the chart. Some key phrases for you are "loving yourself" and "working at love." I know this week's horoscope sounds a lot like last week's. No, I am not being lazy - the big players in your chart haven't moved that much and they are still whispering words of loving union or separation in your ear. How could it be about getting together while at the same time being apart? Ah, well, that's the Aries/Libra age-old relationship/balance/polarity dance. What it really comes down to is deciding what you want. The planets are so primed to support you in the work of love, but you must love yourself first. If you lose yourself to love, love will consume you to the point where you feel you have nothing of yourself left and then you will not want the love you thought you did. The new moon in the 7th house can give you a whole new life.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Adjustment and angst in equal measures seems to be the predominant energy for you this week, Scorpio. In general, this is not your season. You do tend to prefer the time of the year when the trees show their bones better than when they leaf out fully. Black is so NOT a spring color and I'll bet you gaze in your closet this time of year and wonder what to wear. Some of your unease is due to the fact that, around your birth month, the planetary cycles align with your energy and, right now, they are in the muddle zone. You are not flying high; you are maintaining and just putting one foot in front of the other, or so it may seem. The good news is that you can appreciate home and family now while things may be a bit slower and you have plenty of creativity at your disposal. The more time you have to mull and contemplate, the more creative ideas you can find. The new moon in your 6th house of health, service, and work is backed up by several other strong Aries planets and opposes Saturn in Libra in your 12th house (read the Taurus 'scope) on Sunday. You may be an emotional water sign, but you are not weak or wimpy. The new moon creates some stand-and-fight energy where you will confront your own health or worry issues or force an issue at work. You have what it takes to survive and thrive on your own if you come to an ultimatum point at a job.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Communication with friends or social networking to make business contacts keeps you busy at the beginning of the week, Sagittarius. Working on your home or spending spare time with your family gives you pleasure now. If you are able to take a vacation week, do so. The new moon highlights your 5th house of creativity, children, pets, romance, gambling, cooking, and any other fun, creative thing you can think of. Your already enthusiastic nature gets a triple boost from all the fiery Aries planets that are converging on your house of play. Some Sagittarians may discover a hobby that becomes a true passion and then a new way to make money. Others may have a baby or decide to adopt a child or pet. Even if you have to do the same old same-old this week, make a point of doing something you've always wanted to do. You have no "later" - you only have "now."
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
An increase in income or a bonus at work is possible at the beginning of the week, Capricorn. Around the middle of the week, your mind could go soft, but I mean that in a good way. Maybe you've never been able to write a poem or a love letter and suddenly you find yourself scribbling haikus or whispering flowery, romantic sentiments in your lover's ear. If you find yourself liking chick flicks, blame it on the current planets. The planets are also doling out some heavy stuff for you that may shake some dirt off your roots and, by the time the new moon has passed, you could find yourself transplanted. Literally, you could buy or sell a home now, but it is more likely that you may have a psychological/root beliefs kind of shakeup that transforms your life. The new moon in the 4th house of home and psychological foundations may make you see that you can't make anyone else change, nor can you make any situation be different. You can only change yourself and how you choose to feel about things. Now, that is true power.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
A relatively good week is in store for you this week, Aquarius. The current planetary elements and transits are keeping you busy in the mental, communication, and transportation realms, which is where an air sign feels most comfortable. In fact, you may talk so much that you lose your voice! Stay hydrated and keep the cough drops handy. You have an extra dose of imagination, which can help you if your work requires imagination. This can also help you with soft selling if sales is your field. Ingenuity is amplified by the Aries planets, including the new moon, in your 3rd house of ideas, communication, sales, siblings, and the local neighborhood. Perhaps there is something your community or job needs to solve a problem, such as a neighborhood watch or a better way to do some aspect of customer service. You have the abilities now to see things in a fresh and inventive way. It only takes a shift in how you view yourself and a dedication to following through on an idea in order for you to become a leader or teacher now. If you have valuable information or inspiration to share, please do.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
There are lessons for you this week in love, fear, and money, Pisces. Spend time early this week meditating on money - what it is, what it represents, how it makes you feel, and how you handle it. Perhaps list all the expressions about money that you can think of and all the money beliefs that you have. Immerse yourself totally in money. If you have never done any clearing of limiting beliefs, you may want to search the Internet for clearing methods, such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and apply them. The planets are giving you assistance in choosing love over fear now and once you identify beliefs or "shoulds" that belong to someone else that you may have been parroting or accepting as fact, you will feel a release and freedom. Now you can build your new money-attracting consciousness and do business in a more conscious, self-centered way. I know you may think "self-centered" sounds self-serving or selfish, but that is my point. If you want to make money with your business, you have to be at the center of it and your money beliefs must be all your own.
