Here's What's In Store For May - May 2017 Monthly Horoscopes!

You should be feeling back on track this month as Mercury begins moving forward again in Aries, your zone of confidence and self-image, on May 3. With charming Venus (now in Aries) also back in this zone, you should have a better sense of what you want and where you want to go moving forward. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting a makeover too as you’ll be wanting a new look that matches your new outlook on life. Meanwhile, hosting Venus and Mercury in your sign means that you have the power of persuasion now, especially with Mars in talkative Gemini camped out in your zone of communication. With the help of this cosmic combination, it won’t be hard to win friends, influence others, talk yourself into an opportunity, or attract love. If you have something you want to promote, launch, publish, screen, or build an audience for – May is your month to do it, especially as the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Writing, media, networking, and gathering new experiences will be your source of strength and good energy.

Before Gemini season arrives though, there’s some unfinished business for you to handle first thanks to the Full Moon in Scorpio (May 10) landing in your zone of finances, intimacy, and rebirth. Under this full moon, you may be pushed to put the kibosh on an intimate relationship that’s become more controlling or manipulative than supportive and nurturing. Meanwhile when it comes to your finances, you could be making a big step towards your financial security like purchasing life insurance or your own house. Either way, look to this full moon to help you find the courage to grow up in some way. The theme of money and the things you value will continue as Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of income and possessions on May 16. With Mercury here, it’s time to go over your financials and pay closer attention to the money going in and out of your bank account, as well as your perceptions around scarcity and abundance. It’s time to see the glass as half full instead of the other way around.

As your birthday season continues, you can consider this month to be a re-set of sorts, especially when it comes to your relationships, money, and the things you value. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) by May 3, you should be able to find the courage to let something you’ve been fearing go. With Mercury in one of the most sensitive zones of your chart, your intuition is spot now on, you just have to make sure you allow yourself to get quiet enough to hear it, especially with Venus in Aries calling you towards better self-care. Having Mercury in fearless Aries though, is like having that little voice in your head that tells you that you can do anything. It’s time to trust that voice, as it really means trusting yourself – especially as multiple planets begin lining up in Gemini, your zone of self-worth, income, and possessions. Mars in Gemini already kicked off the party last month, pushing you to be more demanding about getting the things that you’ve been working so hard for, while making sure others respect those demands.

And speaking of others, on May 10 a Full Moon in Scorpio lands in your zone of relationships, which may push you to end a bad relationship or force you to see someone close to you as they really are. If there’s been a drought in your love life, this full moon could also bring an end to that as well. By the 16th, when Mercury enters Taurus, your zone of self-confidence and self-image, your words will carry special power, so make sure you’re using them to speak what you want into existence. Be mindful of how you use phrases like “I can’t”, “I won’t”, “I don’t have”, “I am”, etc. On another note, you can use Mercury to meet and connect with others in a way that could lead to an opportunity or two. Prepare to sing your own praises. By the 20th, when the Sun enters Gemini, the spotlight turns back to your money and self-worth. It’s time to put yourself in spaces, working or not, that make you feel valued and productive. No more holding onto people or things out of fear. On the 25th, look to the New Moon in Gemini to help you with manifesting a new source of income.

 

Happy Birthday, Gemini! With a brand new year ahead of you and nearly half the cosmos behind you this month, you may feel like you can’t be stopped. This feeling is a good thing, Gemini as it may have felt like you’ve been swimming in molasses lately. Though the slow progress helped you to figure out where your energy is best spent. With Mercury moving forward again in Aries (your zone of friendship and future goals) on May 3, you succeed by paying closer attention to the company you keep both on and offline. With Venus back in Aries and in this area of your chart as well, there may have been some changes in your circle of friends, but you should be clearer on what friendship means to you. Simply put: if the people you know aren’t adding value to your life in some way, then what are they doing? With aggressive Mars currently in Gemini, your zone of confidence and self-image, you should be feeling assured and energized in a way that you haven’t felt for some time. You should also be feeling less tolerant of other people’s nonsense, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself quicker to set boundaries with others.

On the 10th, a Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates your zone of health, routine, and work. Under the influence of this full moon your personal boundaries continue to be an opportunity for growth for you as you may decide to call it quits on a job within a toxic or abusive work environment. Another way this full moon may show up for you is by pushing you to detox your body or break a bad habit. When Mercury enters Taurus on the 16th, it’s time for a mental sabbatical of sorts as your creativity and intuition only shine through when you give yourself enough quiet and solitude. As such, stay off the social media for a little while. Consider this time a chance to clear things off your plate before your birthday rolls in as when the Sun arrives in Gemini on the 20th, joining Mars, it’s full steam ahead. With the Sun and Mars on your team, May is your month to make major progress and take chances on things that you may have been afraid to do in the past. Look to the New Moon in Gemini on the 25th, to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your style and approach.

With Venus back in Aries and in this same zone, your focus is making sure that whatever you choose to do, it allows you a sense of fulfillment and creative freedom alongside making money. Is it possible to do what you love and live on it too? The universe seems to think so. It’s time you got your head in that same space. With passionate Mars currently in Gemini and in your zone of rest, retreat, and dreams; you may be feeling both divinely inspired and wildly afraid to leave your current situation behind. Though this is the perfect time to strategize behind the scenes and engage activities that help you reduce anxiety and overcome fear. Therapy or working with a reputable spiritual healer could help.

On the 10th, the Full Moon in Scorpio lights up your zone of creativity, adventure, and romance. As Scorpio is a sign that pushes us to recognize our personal power, this full moon may push you to stop doubting yourself or playing yourself small.

Part of this work will involve connecting and conversing with others that you can collaborate with in a professional capacity or those that can at the very least point you in the right direction when it comes to opportunity. Since social media is associated with this area, make sure to use it as your digital resume. A personal website could even help. On the 20th, the Sun enters Gemini, followed by a New Moon in Gemini on the 25th. Giving yourself space to dream, heal, and create will be the best gift you can give yourself. Take care of you.

Over the past few weeks it may have felt like you were spinning your wheels a bit as you were asked to slow down and assess what happens when you take on entirely too much at one time.

With Venus back in Aries as well, you could also be thinking about upgrading or redecorating your living space. Mercury and Venus will be working together to assist you with this renovation project on your interior life.

April 2017 Horoscopes

Aries: The story begins to unfold on April 2, when Venus re-enters Pisces – your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With the planet of love and pleasure in this secret area of your chart, you could find yourself involved in a relationship with someone that may not be all they seem or the relationship itself may need to be kept secret. While you may be interested in a more soulful kind of love, it’s important that you’re not getting caught up in a fantasy. If a certain and possibly unavailable someone is making you feel (good) things you haven’t before – it could be that you need to spend more time making yourself feel that way first. This will be especially the case when Venus returns to Aries near the end of the month (April 28). You need to invest in you before you can invest in another. By doing so, you’ll know how to spot the disingenuous folks sooner. By the 6th, Saturn begins its five month retrograde in Sagittarius, your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With hardworking Saturn spinning backward in this area it’s time to reevaluate how committed you are to making some of your biggest dreams real. Perhaps this may mean going back to school, getting re-certified, looking at your goals more realistically, or reassessing a self-limiting belief. Going backwards will continue to be a focus as Mercury begins its three week retrograde in Taurus (your zone of money, values, and possessions) on April 9. Under this transit, your attention will be drawn to reviewing your budget and cash flow. Make sure to keep receipts, watch your bank statements closely, and follow-up on money owed to you. If you have a client based business or job, reconnecting with old clients could help you drum up extra cash. Overall, use this retrograde to improve your financial picture.

On the 11th, a Full Moon in Libra lands in your zone of partnership and marriage. This moon could help to illuminate a relationship issue that may push you to end a relationship or take one to the next level. Since this area of your chart covers professional and romantic partnerships, you can expect developments with either. As such, some Aries could also be saying goodbye to the single life. On the 19th, the Sun enters Taurus, joining Mercury. With the Sun here, your focus will be on making sure that whatever you choose to invest your time, energy, and resources in – there’s a return on that investment. Use Mercury retrograde and the slow-moving energy of Taurus to think carefully about how you can improve your employment situation or grow what you have. By the 20th, Pluto begins its five month retrograde in Capricorn; your zone of career, fame, and achievement. Under this transit, you may need to reassess whether you’re obsessed with success right now. Not that focusing on winning is necessarily a bad thing, but if you’re pushing yourself too hard, forgetting to celebrate the small successes, and being way too critical of yourself then it may be time to scale it back a notch. Success shouldn’t consume your happiness. On that same day, communicative Mercury moves back into Aries and back into your zone of self-image and confidence. With Mercury retrograde here, part of your mission will be about thinking more carefully about what you say and the information you choose to share with others. Don’t be a victim of TMI (too much information). This may be a bit hard to do when Mars, your patron saint, moves into Gemini on April 21. With Mars moving through your zone of communication, it may be difficult to keep your thoughts to yourself. Keep mars busy with a constructive/productive project like studying, building a website, writing, event planning, etc. On the 26th, a New Moon in Taurus can help you to manifest a new job or a financial opportunity. Think about things you’d like to see grow over the next few weeks and begin planting the seeds. Whatever you choose to initiate, it should be focused on improving your stability and security.

Taurus: Happy Birthday, Taurus! As you come up on another year, this month is largely about reviewing the direction you’re headed in to make sure you’re on the right path. Part of this review process will be taking a look at your friendships and the groups that you identify with as Venus, your ruling planet, moves back into Pisces – your zone of friendships and alliances – on April 2. With the planet of love and relationships retrograde in this zone, you’re being asked whether some of the people in your life still have a place in it. Since Pisces is an energy that can sometimes have us seeing the best in others at our own expense, your job will be focusing on weeding out those people with whom your relationship has become lopsided or nonreciprocal. On the 6th, when Saturn in Sagittarius begins its five month retrograde in your zone of intimacy, you may be asked to take your relationship check-up a step further by recognizing that you can’t force relationships to work. They either do or they don’t. On the 9th, when Mercury begins its three week retrograde in Taurus, your zone of self-image and confidence, make sure that whatever you say is something that you can stick by as you don’t want to have to take back your words later. That said, maybe it’s time to reevaluate your outlook or perception on a few things and get rid of an outmoded way of thinking. When Pluto goes retrograde in Capricorn, your zone of education and opportunity, on April 20, transforming your worldview will be a theme. If you find yourself clinging too hard to any one doctrine or school of thought, you may be challenged as to why.

On April 11, there’s a Full Moon in Libra illuminating your zone of health, work, and routine. Under this moon you could decide to break free from a work environment that stifles your creativity or causes you too much stress. Meanwhile you could also decide to put an end to a bad habit, especially if it’s been affecting your health. On the 19th, the Sun enters Taurus kicking off your birthday season. Expect to be the star of the show as your confidence gets an added boost and others shower you with attention. On the 20th, in addition to the start of Pluto retrograde, Mercury moves back into Aries – your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With Mercury rummaging around here it’s time for you to do some work/planning behind the scenes. If there’s something you’ve been wanting to write, research, complete, etc. but you’ve been having a hard time creating a quiet space to do it – use the next few days to do so. When Mercury moves back into Taurus later, you can do a big unveiling. On April 21, when Mars enters Gemini, your zone of money and possessions, it may be time to fight for what you want. This could involve finding the motivation to seek out a new job or speaking up and asking for a raise. Since Mars likes to burn through things, be mindful about burning through your cash at this time. On April 26, the universe blesses you with a giant reset button in the form of a New Moon in Taurus. Use this moon to help you turn over a new leaf when it comes to your physical appearance, wardrobe, or how you approach the world. Look to this moon to help you with reaffirming your self-value. On the 28th, your ruling planet moves into Aries, joining Mercury. Venus continues where the new moon leaves off by encouraging you to reestablish your self-care. The only caveat here is getting secretly involved with someone you shouldn’t. Lean on Mercury for intuitive insight.

Gemini: You may feel like you’re moving in slow motion for a good chunk of the month and that’s because there will be up to four planets retrograde in April, which includes your ruling planet Mercury (we’ll get to that shortly). The month opens with Venus moving back into in Pisces (April 2), your zone of fame, career, and achievement. With the planet of money, pleasure, and self-worth spinning backwards in this zone, it’s time to reevaluate your sense of fulfillment in your professional life. Are you getting the love and recognition that you deserve? Or do you feel undervalued and possibly underpaid for what you do? Perhaps it’s time to check in with yourself as to whether you love what you do or not. If not, it may be time for a change. By April 6, Saturn begins its five month retrograde in Sagittarius, your zone of partnerships. Under this retrograde you may be pushed to reassess your commitment to the one you love or with whom you share a business relationship. Under this transit, you could find yourself saying goodbye if you’ve been wasting too much of your time and energy, as responsible Saturn hates waste. Though for some Gemini, this could be the opportunity to reaffirm vows or the aha moment needed to renegotiate or renew a business partnership. Though take your time before coming to any final decisions as Mercury begins its three week retrograde in Taurus (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) on April 9. With Mercury moving backwards in one of the most private zones of your chart, your focus turns to activities and interests that allow you to unplug and give your brain a rest.

By April 11, there’s a Full Moon in Libra landing in your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. With a full moon here, the chances of leaving behind a dead-end relationship increases, while some Gemini may get pregnancy news. In terms of your creative energy, you could bring a project to completion that puts you in the spotlight or finally decide to pursue something you’re passionate about. On the 19th, things slow down significantly as the Sun moves into Taurus. Under this transit your sense of vitality and warmth will come by secluding yourself away from the world and tending to your more tender pieces.

Expect this to be your focus during much of the month as your ruling planet Venus goes retrograde (March 4th) in Aries, your zone of rest, retreat, and dreams. With Venus retrograde here, you’ll have to draw inward and tap into the more soulful part of you in order to figure out what really speaks to your spirit.

On the 9th, aggressive Mars enters Taurus, your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With Mars in one of the most private parts of your chart, it’s time to channel your angry feelings into a creative or therapeutic outlet as holding on to those feelings or attempting to ignore them will only hurt you more than it will help.

Sagittarius: What kind of value do you place on your talent? Or do you place a value on it at all? And if you do value your talent, is it time to raise that value? These are just some of the questions that may come up over the next few weeks as Venus in Aries retrogrades (March 4th) through your zone of love, creativity, and adventure. If you want others to appreciate you for your genius, especially in the form of cash, you need to appreciate you first. As such, you can expect Venus retrograde to bring up feelings of being taken for granted as you crave equal exchanges of adoration and energy. This will also be the case when it comes to your lovers and potential lovers now as you won’t want to settle.

On the 13th, Mercury enters Aries, joining Venus – which could mark a good time to open negotiations on buying or selling a house or to address a family related matter. When the Sun enters Aries on the 20th, your source of warmth and light will be from time spent at home or in private with people you deeply care about.

While you tend to be a friend to many and you usually have a variety of interests, the cosmos is asking you to be savvy about what you put your energy towards which means the things you used to do and the people you used to do them with may no longer fit anymore. Overall, it’s time to pare down and get more value for your time spent. On the 9th, active Mars enters Taurus, your zone of home and family. While Mars is here, expect things to get real busy when it comes to your private life. With Mars here, you may be motivated to renovate your space or move somewhere else altogether. Given the last year you’ve head and the goodies you’re in for, it may make sense now to upgrade your space.

Channel that energy to draw healthier boundaries or to finally address an elephant in the room.

When the Full Moon in Virgo lands in your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth on the 12th, it’s time for a purge of sorts.

If you’ve experienced trauma or abuse in the past, this moon can be a gateway to your healing, especially by way of counseling or therapy. On the 13th, Mercury enters Aries, joining Venus retrograde. You could reconnect with a long-lost friend or sibling, or revisit an idea that could make you money. On the 20th, when the Sun heads into Aries, your source of energy will come by way of interesting conversations and connections that you’ll have with the people around you.

Pisces: You’ve got your mind on your money and your money on your mind this month, especially as March opens with Venus retrograde in Aries (March 4th), your zone of income and possessions. With the planet of self-worth, pleasure, and abundance moving backwards in your financial zone, your focus will be drawn to reassessing how you make your money and whether you’re making enough based on what you have to offer. If you’ve been feeling underpaid and underappreciated, those feelings will be hard to ignore now. You’ll also find that the conflict between getting paid for what you love versus getting paid enough to pay your bills will also be a theme. Though with Venus, the underlying issue to each of these challenges will focus around how much you value yourself and your own happiness. With Venus in self-assertive Aries, put yourself first. About assertiveness, when confident Mars enters Taurus (your zone of communication) on March 9th, your anger and how you express it will come up for review. If you’ve ever had challenges with avoiding conflict or holding on to things past their due, Mars in Taurus will push and prod you to get to the bottom of it.

On March 12th, the Full Moon in Virgo lands in your zone of partnership which could bring a relationship issue to a head or pave the way for a new phase in a partnership, whether in business or romance. If you’ve been feeling that love has skipped over you, then look to this moon to highlight what needs to be fixed to draw in the kind of relationship that you want. As Virgo is a “facts only” kind of sign, the relationship work that you do will require you to be realistic and practical. On the 13th, Mercury enters Aries, joining Venus retrograde. With Mercury and Venus in this zone, your attention will be drawn to creating a financial plan or strategy that allows you more freedom whether it’s making more money, saving more money, doing more of what you love, or finding a job that doesn’t tether you to one place. On the 20th, when Aries season kicks off, the spotlight remains on your income and your self-worth. Expect to splurge and show off a bit as a means of boosting your spirits. Remember, how you treat you is how others will treat you too.

February 2017 Horoscopes

Aries: Welcome to your reinvention. If last month was all about surrender, release, and sleep; this month it’s all about victory, manifesting, and momentum. Not only do you have Mars, your ruling planet, back home in Aries (your zone of self-confidence and self-image) but Venus will be joining Mars in this zone on February 3rd. Having Venus in your sign is important because wherever she goes, she brings lots of opportunities for love, pleasure, and financial rewards. With Venus and Mars on your side over the next few weeks, it means that you’ll have just the right amount of confidence, charm, and creativity to get what you want and do what you want, which means that now is not the time to lose focus or steam when it comes to your goals and plans. Because we’re dealing with some fresh, yet unstable energy this month, it’s important to remain centered, grounded, and specific about what you want especially when it comes to love and relationships.

About love and relationships; when Jupiter begins its four-month retrograde in Libra, your zone of marriage and partnerships, on February 6th, you may need to reassess a relationship, your beliefs about relationships or marriage, or review a lesson in love. One theme that you may notice that’s been coming up for you over and over since Jupiter has been in Libra is how you can’t always go it alone. With Mars and Venus being in Aries, the downside is that it can make you too egocentric or give you the feeling that you don’t need anyone. If it’s one lesson that 2017 is teaching us, it’s how much we need the love and support of other people to thrive. This theme repeats for you yet again, by the 7th when Mercury enters Aquarius, your zone of friendship and community. With Mercury here, friendship and allyship will be an important part in helping you bring your ideas to life as well as capitalizing on the impressive resume you’ve been building. Also, if social justice or tech is your focus, Mercury in Aquarius can help you move masses.

On the 10th, your love life and self-confidence come back into focus when an influential Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. Over the six months that follow this eclipse, you may end a relationship, end the single life, or be moved to creatively express yourself in a way that pushes you into the public eye. Since this zone of your chart is also connected to children, some Leo may be expecting. However, if children aren’t on your must have list right now, make sure you plan wisely as eclipses can deliver sudden news. On February 18th, the Sun enters Pisces, your zone of rest, retreat, and healing. While we’re still a month out from your grand re-opening, having the Sun in this private area of your chart will assist you in clearing out space for what’s to come. Part of this clearing will happen around Mercury’s move into Pisces on the 25th, followed by a powerful Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th. At this times you may be moved to reconnect with Spirit, begin counseling or therapy, or to take a much needed hiatus.

January 2017 Horoscopes

jan

Happy New Year! Here are your January 2017 Horoscopes. Make sure to read for your Sun sign (symbolized by the month and day you were born) as well as your Rising or Ascendant sign (indicated by your time of birth). Read below to find out how to make this month your own. 

Aries: Slow down. While those words may seem foreign to you, understand that this is for your own benefit. You’re learning the value of conserving your energy and your time, instead of scattering yourself in a million different directions, getting bored quickly along the way. Though before you get to doing anything, it seems like there’s something (or perhaps someone) that you need to release that’s been weighing heavy on your heart. With sweet Venus in Pisces since January 2nd (joining Neptune and Mars) in your zone of rest, endings, and retreat; your source of well-being and happiness comes by way of self-care, healing, and allowing yourself your tears. Tears are cleansing! With communicative Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (your zone of expansion and education) beginning on January 4th, part of your healing process will also include reevaluating beliefs and perceptions that you may have thought to be true. You’re becoming a different person and that old way of thinking just doesn’t apply anymore. When Mercury moves direct on the 8th; followed by it’s re-entry into clearheaded Capricorn (your zone of career and achievement) on the 12th, you should have a clearer idea in terms of where you’re headed – especially where you’re career and ambitions are concerned. For now, it’s easy does it. You’re not running a race.

Before Mercury re-enters Capricorn, there’s an intense Full Moon in Cancer landing in your zone of home and family on that same day. As a result, an emotional conversation with a family member or someone close to you could be the impetus you need to finally break free of the past, which may include a move or relocation. Though emotions may be running high at this time, look to Mercury in Capricorn to help you come up with a rational solution. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of friendship and allies. Under this influence, you get by with some help from your friends. Look to the people you know to not only be a source of support and fresh air, but to also play a key role in helping you to capitalize on the reputation you’ve been working so hard to build. When the New Moon in Aquarius lands in this same zone on the 27th, mark this as your chance to launch a project that falls along the line of tech, social media, or a humanitarian cause. If you need to drive traffic to your website or blog, the weeks that follow the New Moon can help. Though things really don’t get cooking this month until January 28th, when Mars – your ruling planet – leaves the emotional waters of Pisces and returns home to your sign. Having Mars in Aries in your zone of confidence and self-image will give you the eye of the tiger again. Look out world!

Taurus: The month opens with Venus, your ruling planet, leaving rebellious Aquarius for laid-back Pisces (January 2nd), which is a much easier place for Venus to be, especially for another laid-back sign like you. And with Venus in Pisces landing in your zone of friendship and allies, your source of pleasure will come by way of time spent cooling out in the company of good friends. Since Venus is the planet that’s also in charge of money; the people you network with now could pave the way for a few business opportunities as well. For those of you who work in nonprofit or have a crowdfunding campaign going, having Venus in this zone is also good for raising money for your cause or project. Though while we’re on the subject of money, you may need to review your finances while Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius (your zone of intimacy and taxes) starting  on January 4th. When Mercury goes direct again on the 8th, followed by Mercury’s re-entry into Capricorn (your zone of opportunity) on the 12th, you should have a clear plan on how to tackle debt or use your resources for a major investment like relocating to a new city. Overall, you can expect the first half of the month to continue the theme of freedom for you; financial freedom, spiritual freedom, mental freedom as well as the freedom to come and go as you want. This means there’s no use in trying to cling to the old and very limited way of doing things anymore.

Before Mercury moves back into Capricorn, a Full Moon in Cancer will land in your zone of communication and learning on the same day. Though this won’t be the easiest of Full Moons, this moon can help you with shifting your perspective and seeing the world around you with a fresh pair of eyes. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to travel and explore a plethora of places and information, because your brain will be hungry for stimulation. Look to this moon to help you snap of a rut. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of fame, career, and ambition. With the sun activating this area of your chart, you could be in for a promotion, increase in salary, or reward and recognition for your work. Though, look to the New Moon in Aquarius on the 27th, to see any developments in these areas. If there’s a job or opportunity that you’ve been wanting to go for, the New Moon can help. By the 28th, when Mars enters Aries, your zone of rest, healing, and retreat, you may have to actively find improved ways to deal with insomnia, stress, or anxiety. Counseling could help, as well as better routines and habits like leaving your laptop, phone, etc. outside of the bedroom.

Gemini: Your career is the focus for a good portion of the month as Venus joins Neptune and Mars in Pisces, your zone of career, fame, and ambition on January 2nd. With Venus here, you’re everyone’s darling which means you can expect to receive some goodies and good graces from your supervisor, VIPs, and the everyday public. Since Venus is in charge of money, a new job or entrepreneurial opportunity could be presented to you along with a pay increase to match. Though the key to happiness now is not so much about the money (though money is important) but rather about how in alignment you feel with what you do. This means that if an opportunity does come up for you now, don’t make your decision solely on money. On the 4th, when Mercury (your ruling planet) slides back into Sagittarius, your zone of marriage and partnership, you may need to renegotiate a business agreement or reevaluate a close relationship. Though don’t panic, as having Mercury retrograde here isn’t a bad thing as it can help you root out any problems and come up with solutions to fix them, especially when Mercury goes direct on the 8th; followed by its re-entry into realistic Capricorn on the 12th. With Mercury in Capricorn, your zone of intimacy and finances, you should be able to come up with an improved plan to not only save/handle your money better but your closest relationships too. Hint: boundaries and discipline.

Speaking of money, a Full Moon in Cancer also lands on the 12th, in your zone of income and possessions. While this moon will by no means be an easy one to deal with, it could offer the shakeup you need to stop settling for less than what you’re worth or allowing others to devalue you and what you do. Look to Mercury in Capricorn to help you see through the B.S. someone wants you to believe and make your moves in secret. Won’t they be surprised when they find out what you have up under your sleeve. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius – your zone of travel, opportunity, and education; which should give you a renewed joie de vivre. With the Sun in a fellow air sign and in this area of your chart, you should be ready to take off. A plane ticket, workshop, lecture, or book could be just what you need to make a sweet escape and titillate your brain. When a New Moon in Aquarius follows on the 27th, make it your business to get in at least one new experience this month as it will give you the fresh air you’ve been craving. When Mars moves to Aries on the 28th, your zone of friendship and future goals, it’s time to take your plans up several notches. Use this time to rebrand or add some oomph to your online presence as a means of getting the right people to notice you. Networking and connecting with others whether in person or online could help you unlock opportunity. Find your tribe.

Cancer: You may find that following your heart is a recurring theme for you this month when creative Venus enters Pisces; your zone of travel, expansion, and education; on January 2nd. With Venus joining Neptune and Mars in this zone of your chart, you’re being challenged to dream big. Though to truly make those dreams happen, you’ll have to have the courage (Mars) to go after them. You shouldn’t need to try too hard to get what you want as Venus being in a fellow Water sign will help ramp up your magnetism, helping you to attract what you desire. Hint: when you light up (through what makes you happy and fuels your passion), the rest of the world lights up with you. Since responsible Saturn has been hanging around your zone of work and routine, you may not have had the opportunity to have as much fun as you’re used to, especially with Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (January 4th) forcing you to go back and redo your work as well as look after your health. However, with Venus, your job is to not only have fun again but to expand and enrich your world while doing it. If love has been on your mind, you could meet someone now while traveling, at school, or from a different cultural background. And speaking of relationships, when Mercury goes direct on the 8th and re-enters Capricorn (your zone of partnership and marriage) on the 12th, you and your partner should be able to move forward with plans you’ve made or find yourselves with newfound clarity about the state of your relationship.

Though before Mercury moves back into Capricorn, there’s a very intense Full Moon in Cancer landing in your zone of confidence and self-image on the same day. Under this moon you may decide to end a relationship that no longer offers you any growth, hinders your freedom, or doesn’t align with the person that you want to be. Another way that this moon could shake you up is by highlighting the ways that you’ve been holding yourself back or putting your dreams on hold for the sake of someone else. Since this will most likely be a very emotional time, you’re encouraged not to make any rash decisions. Allow the level-headedness of Mercury in Capricorn to help you take a realistic look at what’s happening and fix what’s wrong. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of intimacy and finances. With the Sun in this area of your chart, you may find yourself craving a deeper romantic bond or the ability to connect with your lover in a way that you haven’t done before. Since this area of your chart also handles taxes, investments, and debt; your finances will be spotlighted now. Look to the New Moon in Aquarius on January 27th to help you to turn over a new leaf in these areas. When go-getter Mars enters Aries (your zone of career and achievement) on the 28th, it’s time for you to be a go-getter too. Use Mars’ power of determination and confidence to help you succeed at what you do.

Leo: Power is a theme for you this month, and no I don’t mean the hit TV show. I mean your personal power, your sexual power, and your financial power, which comes into focus when seductive Venus enters Pisces and lands in your zone of intimacy and finances on January 2nd. With Venus here, you should find that run-of-the-mill, flimsy romantic relationships just won’t cut it now as you’re looking for something more substantial and meaningful. In other words, you’re looking for your soul mate. Though don’t let that sound more daunting than it is, as oftentimes attracting who or what you want means that you have raise the bar for yourself by letting the universe know you are no longer suffering fools. This includes not giving your power away by entertaining those who don’t value you or treat you in the way that they should. Though Venus will be ramping up your magnetism in a way now that just about everyone will be on the hunt for you, you just need to be selective about who you give access. With Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (January 4th) – your zone of passion and romance, an ex could pop up. Watch out though. In terms of sex and intimacy, you could get the help you need to heal from a trauma or give yourself permission to explore a new facet of your sexuality, thereby finding a sense of empowerment to live and experience pleasure freely. Financially speaking, this is your time to work on issues around lack and poverty consciousness so you can command the financial security that you desire.

On the 12th, a very emotional Full Moon in Cancer lands in your zone of healing, endings, and retreat. While the discomfort that comes up under this moon should only be temporary, it should help you to release any self-limiting beliefs that you have, feelings of spiritual lack, or a fear that you’ve been trying to run away from. With Mercury direct on the 8th, and re-entering Capricorn (your zone of health, work, and routine) on the 12th; look to Mercury to help you improve your self-care habits that can help you address and tackle any difficult feelings that may come up for you now. Hint: don’t try to ignore or minimize that you feel the way you do. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of partnership and marriage. With the Sun here, the focus is on relationships and collaborations. Business partnerships could offer the key to getting what you want while romance heats up. When the New Moon in Aquarius lands on the 27th, you could meet someone new with commitment in mind or you could gain clarity on the right person for you. On the 28th, Mars steps into Aries and zooms into your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. With Mars here, you should find yourself with a hunger to taste, touch, see, and experience as much as you can. Let yourself go.

Virgo: Love sparkles for you for most of the month as romantic Venus enters Pisces, joining passionate Mars and dreamy Neptune, in your zone of partnership and marriage on January 2nd. With Venus in this part of your chart, you could find someone that gives you a soulmate vibe if single, while you coupled up Virgos could deepen the bond that you have with your beloved. Since Pisces is involved here, the person you meet could be a catalyst in healing a broken or inaccessible heart, while challenging some of your more stubborn ways. Don’t freak out though Virgo, as you’re learning that there’s strength to be found in love and vulnerability. Both encourage you to grow. On the subject of growth, with Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius beginning on January 4th in your zone of home and family, you may need to review how a family legacy, emotional wound, or outdated belief from the past may be blocking you from the love you want. When Mercury goes direct on the 8th, followed by its re-entry into Capricorn (your zone of true love, passion, and creativity) on the 12th, you should find clarity around a relationship or what you want when it comes to partnership. With your ruling planet back in this zone, your chances for love and happiness, significantly increase. There’s something to look forward to.

Before Mercury moves to Capricorn though, there will be a dramatic Full Moon in Cancer illuminating your zone of friendship and future goals. Under the influence of this moon, you may be forced to confront a friend or someone close to you regarding your boundaries or the possibility that the relationship between the two of you seems to go one way. While the drama could be high around this time, don’t lose too much sleep over it as you probably could have sensed this was coming. On the 19th, the Sun moves into Aquarius and into your zone of health, work, and routine. With the Sun activating this area of your chart, your focus turns to taking care of your body and managing your bourgeoning work schedule. When a New Moon in Aquarius lands in the same zone on the 27th, use the New Moon to help you turn over a new leaf where your health is concerned or look for a new job. On January 28th, passionate Mars enters Aries, your zone of intimacy and finances. With Mars heating you up, you should find yourself pulling in admirers without having to bat an eyelash. Just make sure they’re who they say they are. Financially, watch out for sudden expenses.

Libra: Ok, Libra. It’s time to get in formation. You should expect your professional life to take up most of your attention this month, beginning on January 2nd, when money-making Venus enters Pisces; your zone of work, health, and routine. With Venus joining go-getter Mars and inspirational Neptune in the same zone, consider this your time to take the lead on a creative project, restart/jumpstart your job search, or look to ways to can create a better work-life balance for yourself – and no, staying up all night online isn’t a part of that. In terms of work, a dream job could be on the horizon as you’re more interested in doing what feeds your spirit instead of solely showing up for a check. As a result, a job in the healing arts may be something that appeals to you now. Since this part of your chart also handles health, look to developing healthier habits or possibly breaking an addiction (like sugar). But think in terms of more gentle approach like working with a coach or low-intensity workouts. This is not about beating yourself up, Libra. All changes come gradually. Allow the power of Pisces to teach you the art of release without have to control every little thing. With Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (beginning on January 4th) in your zone of communication and learning, be wary of misunderstandings. Use Mercury retrograde to your advantage to help you refine or fine tune a plan, presentation, or writing project.

When Mercury goes direct on the 8th, it will remain in your communication zone until the 12th when Mercury will re-enter Capricorn, your zone of home and family. Though before this happens, there’s an intense Full Moon in Cancer landing in your career zone on that same day. Though the energy of this Full Moon doesn’t promise that it will be easy, you could make an abrupt exit from your current job, relocate, or set your sights on an entrepreneurial endeavor. Since emotions will be running high at this time, leaving you feeling like you’re being stretched in ten different directions, utilize Mercury in Capricorn to help you get grounded and reconnect to your center. On the 19th, the energy lightens up significantly when the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of fun, romance and creativity. With the Sun fueling you with creative energy, don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly brimming with fresh ideas; ready to conquer the world. When the New Moon in Aquarius lands on the 27th in this same zone, you could begin a new love affair or set sail for a new adventure. Use the power of the New Moon to help you get an artistic or inspiring project off the ground. On the 28th, Mars moves to Aries and into your zone of partnership and marriage. While this can sometimes point to disagreements with a significant other, use Mars’ passion to turn up the heat.

Scorpio: You’re center stage this month as creative Venus enters Pisces, your zone of creativity, self-expression, and romance on January 2nd. With Venus joining imaginative Neptune and passionate Mars in this zone, you may attract a new romance that fuels your creative juices, turn a talent or hobby into a small business, begin the chapter of the book that you’ve always wanted to write, or embark on project that brings your talents to a broader audience (hello, web series?). As of now, you’re learning the importance of valuing your intangible resources – like creativity, so that others will do the same; namely in the form of monetary value. Speaking of money, when Mercury retrogrades back into Sagittarius (your zone of income and possessions) on the 4th, it may be time for you to review your banking statements and budget to make sure the numbers make sense in terms of your spending and saving. You may find after reviewing the numbers that there is a little more you can do in the vein of saving, or perhaps you may find that you have enough to treat yourself a bit. On the 8th, when Mercury goes direct, you may want to restart your job search or launch a new service or product. Mercury can assist you with your self-advertising when it moves back to Capricorn, your zone of communication, on January 12th. Mercury in Cap can help to make sure that your presentation is professional, polished, and indicative that you’re ready for business.

Before Mercury re-enters Capricorn, a Full Moon in Cancer will land in your zone of travel, opportunity, and education on the same day. Though this moon is shaping up to be a doozy, don’t panic. This could be just the shakeup you need to get out of the rut that you may be in. Freedom and a being able to see the world with a new pair of eyes are the gifts that this moon is bringing you. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of career, fame, and achievement. With the sun lighting up this zone of your chart, get ready to make some big splashes when it comes to your career and ambitions. VIPs will be watching your work closely now, so make sure to bring you’re A-game to make a great first impression.

On the 28th, Mars enters Aries; your zone of health, work, and routine. Use Mars’ power and determination to help you kick your exercise regimen into high gear so you’ll have the energy to keep up with the busy schedule you should expect. While you’re at it, Mars will also help you blow off steam when the day to day gets too stressful. Overall, it’s time to kick some ass.

Sagittarius: Home is where your heart will be this month, as Venus enters Pisces, your zone of home and family on January 2nd. With Venus joining aggressive Mars and compassionate Neptune in this area of your chart, you could find yourself experiencing a rather emotional breakthrough around your relationship to a parent, your inherited beliefs or family karma, or your current living situation. If like many others; you experienced a lack of familial support, care, or security while growing up; Venus can help you to begin the process of healing and repairing your self-esteem as you work to release resentments, hurts, or grievances around the wounds you received in the past. Engaging root chakra therapy or clearing blockages around scarcity, could help you to leave the past where it belongs. Speaking of the past, when Mercury retrogrades into Sagittarius (your zone of confidence and self-image) on the 4th, consider this a good time to review where you’ve been thus far and where you would like to go. While this won’t be a time of moving forward just yet, it is a good time to do some cleaning house where it pertains to your physical fitness, appearance, wardrobe, and method of approach when it comes to going after what you want. While you’re known for your sense of optimism and courage, you may find that you’ve been holding yourself back in some way. Be strategic yes, but don’t be afraid.

On the 12th, a very intense Full Moon in Cancer lands in your zone of intimacy and finances. With a moon like this landing in one of the most sensitive parts of your chart, your emotions may run high that day. At this time you may find that it’s a crisis around your money and resources that sets you off, though instead of freaking out, look to this moment as your impetus to improve how you spend and save money, as well as how you make it. Another way this moon can shake you up is by pushing you to exit a lopsided relationship. With Mercury going direct on the 8th, followed by a move back into Capricorn (your zone of income and possessions), look to pragmatic Mercury in Capricorn to help you draft/execute a better financial plan and value yourself enough to leave a negative relationship behind. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of communication. With the Sun here, your focus turns to learning new skills that could increase your marketability or learning the best way to get your message across (like media, public speaking events, advertising, or workshops). When the New Moon in Aquarius arrives on the 27th, use the power of this moon to help you launch a project or event or bring a website to life. People will want to know about you and what you do, so make sure you’re ready. On the 28th, when Mars enters Aries, your zone of love and creativity, get ready for romance. Things should heat up quite quickly for single and coupled Sags alike. Creatively, you should be brimming over with ideas.

Capricorn: Can you allow yourself to dream? And if so, what would you dream about? When creative Venus enters Pisces (your zone of ideas and communication) on January 2nd, these are the questions that will be most important to you. With Venus joining confident Mars and imaginative Neptune, your mission is to dream big and intuit your next steps as opposed to relying on hard facts, logic, and cynicism. With Venus representing creativity, money, and pleasure; you could find yourself happily working to make your dreams real by either by monetizing one of your brilliant ideas or getting training in a field that can help you bring in more income. For example, is there a webinar or online class you’ve been dying to introduce to the masses? Or what about an essay or short story that you’ve been wanting to submit for paid publication? This won’t be about taking any old thing that comes along but rather actively putting your energy and attention on something that resonates with you on a much more deeper level. Put your dreams into action and you could make yourself quite a nice penny in the process. When communicative Mercury retrogrades back into Sagittarius (your zone of dreams, healing, and retreat) on January 4th, your intuition should be on fire! Use Mercury’s visit here to renew your sense of faith in the universe instead of caving into fear and self-doubt. What you want is within reach. You don’t have to force it either, just trust your gut.

On the 12th, a chaotic Full Moon in Cancer lands in your zone of partnership and marriage. While the energy of this moon won’t be easy, you can use it to spotlight and address any concerns with your business partner or significant other, namely those that you two have been trying to avoid or sweep under the rug. Some Capricorns may decide to end a relationship while other Caps may need to have a hard an long talk with their partners about the future as well as the future of the relationship. When Mercury goes direct on the 8th, followed by its reentry into Capricorn (your zone of confidence and self-image) on the 12th as well, you can use Mercury’s gift of communication and negotiation to assist you with getting your point across and making a sound judgement call when it comes to a relationship. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of income and possessions. With the Sun here, your focus turns to your money and what you can do to earn more of it. If you’ve been looking for a new job or a salary increase, thinking about launching a new service or product, or looking to boost your list of paid clients, look to the New Moon in Aquarius on the 27th to lend you some cosmic mojo. On the 28th, when Mars move into Aries (your zone of home and family), mark as a good time to move, renovate, or work from home. Watch out for arguments with family or someone you live with.

Aquarius: Money is on your mind for a good chunk of January, thanks to wealthy Venus moving into Pisces, your zone of income and possessions on January 2nd.  With Venus joining aggressive Mars and spiritual Neptune in this same zone, part of your mission this month will be to actively employ meditative practices to heal any wounds you may have around scarcity and abundance, as well finding ways to make money that resonates with you on a creative and emotional level. As the humanitarian you are, you can be quite generous with your cash, even at times working for little to no pay, but if you want to upgrade your life you’ll need to have ample resources in place to support you for the long term. With Venus being the planet that represents self-worth, you may need to look at where you’ve been playing martyr or unnecessarily sacrificing yourself for others at your own expense and give yourself a hearty dose of self-love. You don’t need to feel guilty about putting you first from time to time. One thing to watch out for though is that having Venus and Mars here could have you feeling more extravagant than usual which could burn a hole through your pocket. Look to better budgeting for help as well as the opportunity to find a new gig. With communicative Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (your zone of friends and allies) beginning on the 4th, you could reconnect with people you know for possible job leads or other opportunities.

On the 12th, a turbulent Full Moon in Cancer lands in your zone of health, work, and routine. Under the influence of this moon you could find out some news around your health that could push you to begin taking better care of yourself or suddenly leave a job that’s been more stress than its worth. While emotions may be running high around this time, it’s important not to make any rash decisions. Though when Mercury goes direct on the 8th, and re-enters levelheaded Capricorn (your zone of healing, ending, and retreat) on the 12th as well, you could intuitively get the answers you need. Pay attention to your dreams and gut feelings at this time. Consider the weeks that follow this Full Moon to help you clean house and set the stage for your annual reset and replenishment. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius (Happy Birthday!), your zone of confidence and self-image. With the Sun here you get a new lease on life as well as all of the attention, energy, warmth, and confidence you can handle. Though that’s not all as there’s a New Moon in Aquarius arriving on the 27th, to drop even more goodies in your lap. Look to turning over a new leaf in just about any place you choose. It’s all about you now. Take a deep breath and soak it all up. On the 28th, Mars moves to Aries, your zone of communication. With Mars here you could find yourself super determined to get an idea off the ground or with a thirst to learn something new. Just watch out that you don’t verbally rip too many people shreds.

Pisces: You may not want to go to bed to early this month because this is your time to turn UP. That’s because you’ll have charming and magnetic Venus in Pisces in your zone of self-image, confidence, and personal style beginning on January 2nd. Fun fact: outside of Taurus and Libra, Venus absolutely loves to be in Pisces, because that’s where she feels she expresses the best of her gifts. With Venus joining confident Mars and inspiring Neptune (also in Pisces), know that there really isn’t much you can’t have now. Use Venus’ power of attraction to help you find love, a new look, and get your name and face in front of people who matter. A word of wisdom though: cosmic mojo doesn’t come along like this every day, so take care not to let self-doubt, laziness, or a lack of follow-through get in your way. Plus with Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius (your zone of fame, career, and achievement) beginning January 4th, this will be your opportunity to refine and revise your professional plans and approach, making sure your work is gold standard. People will be watching your moves now, so you don’t want to give them a reason to discredit you or fail to take you seriously. Though when Mercury moves direct on the 8th, followed by its re-entry into Capricorn on the 12th, you will have made enough stellar impressions to get people talking about you in a good way which could lead to more money and more opportunities.

Before Mercury gets to Capricorn though, there’s an emotional Full Moon in Cancer landing in your zone of love, creativity, and self-expression. Under the influence of this moon, you may decide to end a love affair, especially if the person isn’t treating you as they should; or you may have a financial crisis of sorts that tests your faith in yourself. However, don’t let any of this shake you too badly. You deserve to be with someone who adores you while at the same time you need to begin adoring you too. Look to Mercury in Capricorn to help you with setting down healthier boundaries and commanding the respect that you deserve. On the 19th, the Sun enters Aquarius, your zone of rest, healing, and endings. Having the sun in this zone of your chart means that the spotlight turns inward, helping you to slow down, take your time, and practice the art of letting go. When the New Moon in Aquarius arrives on the 27th, mark that as a time to start fresh with a meditative or spiritual practice, devote more time to self-care, and to make the commitment to look after your emotional health. On the 28th, Mars moves into Aries, your zone of income and possessions which can help you fight for/be very upfront about what you want while making sure that you get it. Use Mars to help you command a higher salary and believe in your personal power. Just watch out for sudden expenses.

Sometimes there’s nothing like hot, angry sex or a heated brainstorming meeting to get the blood (and creativity) pumping. On the 11th, when Venus enters Capricorn, your zone of health and routine, it’s time to make prioritizing a part of your self-care routine.

With Mars in an unconventional sign like Aquarius, your best bet for a good time is to spend time traveling the off-beaten path.

With action-oriented Mars in this tender zone of your chart, the Universe is asking that you be more proactive in creating a sense of sanctuary for yourself. This could mean moving or relocating to a new place, making some improvements or upgrades to your space, or setting down some better boundaries between yourself and a person (or persons) that you share a residence or property with. Since a transit like this also has a knack for bringing up old resentments or wounds, this may also be a time for you to receive some sort of therapy to help you heal issues with anger. On the 11th Venus enters Capricorn, your zone of communication. With money-loving Venus here in a money-loving sign like Capricorn, your skill set and marketability come to the forefront this month.

Sagittarius: Let’s sit down and talk for a second, Sag. Have you been avoiding saying something you really need to say because you fear being uncomfortable? When gutsy Mars enters into Aquarius (November 9th), your zone of communication, whatever has been bubbling beneath the surface will need to find its way out. You’re known around the zodiac as being one of the more tell it like it is signs but since you’re also an adaptable, go with the flow kind of sign, you can sometimes put up with things way past their due date because you don’t want things to get ugly.  The thing is, sometimes you need to face/handle the ugly in order to live authentically. And Mars in Aquarius certainly doesn’t want you sticking with a system, perception, or routine that is no longer working for you. On the 11th, money-loving Venus enters money-loving Capricorn, your zone of income and possessions. With Venus in this zone of your chart (along with Pluto), she will be working to help you attract opportunities that can help you increase your cash flow. However, the trick to making more money now will not only be about how much work you put in, but it will also be about whether or not you believe that you deserve such abundance. Now’s not the time play yourself small. On the 12th, talkative Mercury enters Sagittarius which should put you in the mood to be out and about.

Capricorn: Your month comes in with a bit of a bang, thanks to passionate Mars entering Aquarius (your zone of income and possessions) on November 9th.

However, instead of becoming overly focused on a space of lack, look to new ways that you can actively increase your income. Hint: it may be doing something that’s considered non-traditional or different from your normal. Either way, the money you make now will depend on your ability to be more assertive about your self-worth and what you truly deserve. In other words, this is not a time for settling. One caveat to this transit though: a spike in unexpected expenses. Have some reserves at the ready.

Pisces: The month opens up a bit slowly thanks to action-oriented Mars entering Aquarius (November 9th) and stepping into your zone of rest, healing, and retreat.

With pent up anger being one of the side effects of this transit, this could be the perfect time to start therapy. By the 11th, when pleasure loving Venus moves into Capricorn, you may feel caught between wanting to stay home and wanting to be social. However, don’t feel daunted.
