Aries: Your finances continue to be a focus as November opens with a Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of income, self-worth, and possessions on November 4th. Under the influence of this moon, an income stream could come to an end or you could be pushed to change your financial habits. One message that this Moon is bringing for you for though, is the need for you to better honor your worth. That means if you've been underselling your skills or putting up with a job that undervalues you, this full moon will remind you that you can't survive this way. As a matter of fact, your focus should be on thriving, instead of just scraping by. As such, you may want to kick your job search into high gear, with an emphasis on finding something worth your while as opposed to a quick-fix kind of job. Yes, bills need to be paid, but if you keep wasting your time on menial, dead-end jobs it won't get you any closer to where you want to be. Trust that if you're putting in the work and you've taken a shot at getting something you want, the universe will respond in kind. That's why on November 5th, communication planet Mercury will be moving into Sagittarius (your zone of travel, opportunity, and education) to help you build up your faith, so you can see what's really possible. Mercury will be motivating you to open your mind and shift your perspective. Your options will no longer seem as bleak as they may seem right now. You’ve got to be open to something new though.

By November 7th, Venus – the planet of love and money – moves into Scorpio; your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. In matters of the heart, Venus could help you with attracting a deeper, soulful kind of love as the casual flings won’t cut it. Though if you’ve been down on love, hosting Venus in this area of your chart could also help you with healing heartbreak and moving on. Sometimes it takes a bit of bottoming out to get to a place where you can start fresh. Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, to help you kick start your emotional healing. Hint: part of this work may mean that you’ll have to come to terms with your dark side, as well as beginning the process of owning those pieces of you that you’ve been taught were bad, ugly, or undeserving. Since this zone is also connected to money, this new moon could also help you with achieving financial freedom. Strategize ways that you (and your partner, if applicable) can pay off debt and get your books in order. If you do have a partner, the two of you may decide to pool your resources together at this time for a joint investment, like buying a house or condo. If you need a loan, this moon can help. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, putting the spotlight back on your sense of adventure. Spending time in a different country or city, taking classes, and pursuing new experiences will rejuvenate you. Meanwhile, Neptune going forward in Pisces (your zone of retreat and healing) on November 22nd, helps to restore your faith in something bigger.

Taurus: Like Michael Jackson once said, “you are not alone”. There are people in your corner that are ready to love and support you and this month, your job is to connect with them. Though in order to do so, you may have to be willing to let go of the notion that it’s just you against the world. That’s why the Full Moon in Taurus, landing in your zone of confidence and self-image on November 4th, will be motivating you to heal and release your old wounds. At the same time, some of your relationships may experience a shakeup as you’re also called to let go of stagnant and self-limiting connections. When communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth; you’re asked to dive deep into the spaces of your heart and soul to see the ways that you may have been giving your power and attention away to the unworthy. Mercury will be asking that you get more comfortable with your intuition, as ignoring it will only lead to you feeling more mistrustful of yourself and others. The key here is using your intuitive power to suss out the people that are truly genuine while keeping the fugazi ones at arms length. Writing down your feelings in a journal or discussing them with a therapist could be cathartic for you. If you’re a creative type, you might also opt to work out these thoughts and feelings in a creative piece. In terms of finances, Mercury will also help you to work out a budget to improve your savings or reduce your debts.

By the 7th, Venus (your patron saint) moves into the deep waters of Scorpio and into your zone of partnerships. With Venus’ help, you could meet someone with commitment potential, if single and looking, while those of you already in relationships could re-devote yourselves to the love you have. Since this zone also covers business partnerships, you should also look towards joining forces with others that can help you to make more money. That’s why the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th will be helping you to establish the right connections, in your professional life as well as your romantic life. However, if relationships have been a sore spot for you, look to this moon to help you with clearing space for the kinds of people that you want and deserve to have in your life. Know that you don’t have to settle or cling to “almost, not quite right” relationships out of fear of being alone. With Scorpio it’s either all or nothing, no halfway. This theme of all or nothing will be especially strong come November 21st, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, continuing the work that Mercury in Sagittarius started. Over the next few weeks, while the Sun travels here, you should expect to do a soul recon mission of sorts, as the cosmos asks you to get in deeper touch with your truest desires. Why do think that you shouldn’t have what you want? Is it because you’ve been taught to accept a life full of hardship? Allow Sagittarius season to help you to reconnect to abundance, true love, and pleasure.

Gemini: This month you may find out that it’s all about learning how to balance your needs with the needs of others without losing yourself or making yourself crazy in the process. Thanks to the Full Moon in Taurus (November 4th) that lands in your zone of rest, endings and healing; part of this work will require that you address your needs at the outset. As an intellectual Air sign, you often live in your head and get uncomfortable when it comes to feeling your feelings, but this full moon will push you to pay attention to them. As you pave the way for new things and experiences to enter your life, know that you have to be willing to let go of anything that isn’t working for you. Under this moon, this could mean an attachment to the past, an old emotional wound, or a build-up of resentments. If you find yourself feeling particularly unable to let go or move on, this moon could also inspire you to seek the help of a therapist or spiritual guide, especially as Mercury (your patron saint) moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of partnership; encouraging you to build a winning team. On the 7th, pleasure loving Venus moves into Scorpio, your zone of health, work, and routine. With Venus here, this could be a good time to ramp up your self-care regimen by making sure to get good foods to eat (treats included) and enough beauty rest. When it comes to your professional life, Venus could also help you to find a new job or your workday to go much smoother.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio steps in to help you with getting your sh*t together. Consider this moon a gift from the universe as you’ll find that getting back on track when it comes to a fitness program or a daily schedule will be much easier to do. At the same time, since Scorpio is a sign that loves to purge anything that’s considered dead weight, you could also use this moon to help you initiate a mind and body detox. This could include cutting back on alcohol or quitting smoking, as well as clearing out any clutter that you may have in your office or living space. Either way, the goal is to practice taking care of your needs first, so you can operate from a full place instead of a depleted one. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the attention back to partnerships. In terms of love, some Gemini could meet someone new while those of you that are already attached, may find yourselves focused on your shared goals or interests. With Mercury also in Sagittarius, look to establishing relationships that offer something new for you to learn or experience. Though that doesn’t mean that everyone is invited to the party though. Connecting with people one-on-one will make for genuine, longer lasting relationships. On the 22nd, when Neptune moves forward again in Pisces, your zone of career and achievement, things won’t seem so foggy or uncertain like before.

Cancer: You’ve got big plans, but how willing are you to do what it takes to follow through on them? This might be the question that needs an answer this month as the planets bring attention to your long range plans and the things you’re truly passionate about. Your journey begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of friendship, hopes, and wishes. With the help of this full moon, you’re pushed to release any doubts or fears that you have around moving forward and pursuing what you really want. If you haven’t figured out by now, the universe is ready for you to stop playing yourself small. That means it’s time to grab the bull by its horns (thank you, Taurus) and don’t let go. This may even mean breaking away from your tried and true methods in favor for a fresh approach. On November 5th, Mercury, the planet of details and communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of work, health, and routines. With Mercury at home in this zone of your chart, its job will be to help you work out the fine details in your planning and strategy. This may include looking at ways to develop and hone your marketable skills, as well as devising ways to simplify your life. Hint: it’s time to cut back on the distractions. Though don’t think it’ll be all work and no play this month, as sweet and charming Venus finally leaves your home zone on November 7th and moves into Scorpio – your zone of love, creativity, and fun.

Venus will be on hand to remind you how irresistible you are, which means that you could start a promising romance over the weeks that follow, while those of you already in relationships could find yourselves being healed through the power of love. Since Venus is also connected to creative endeavors and money, you may be able to draw in some extra cash by putting yourself and your talents out there in a big way. Again, the theme for this month is to show up and show out! By the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio swings through, pushing you to deep dive into your passions. When it comes to the progress you make this month, it’s all about focusing on the things that touch your heart. Keep this in mind – if you’re heart isn’t 100% into something; whether it be an offer, a project, or a person – leave it alone. On the 21st, the focus shifts back to your health and routines when the Sun moves into Sagittarius. Over the next few weeks, expect to work on improving your health, balancing your work-life schedule, and breaking unhealthy habits. For some of you, this might be a good time to clean out those closets and donate what you’re no longer using to charity. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity which may be helpful for restoring your faith in what’s possible. Believe in you.

Leo: Fulfillment is the theme for you this month, as the stars align to help you make sure you’re getting the most bang for your proverbial buck. It all begins with the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th, which lands in your zone of career and achievement. Under this moon, you could decide to make a swift exit from your current job, especially if you haven’t been feeling happy at what you do. While a title and status looks good to others and on a resume, it doesn’t mean much if you don’t enjoy what you do or the position you’re in. Your career should be challenging yes, but not at the expense of your well-being, remember that. Should you find yourself looking for a new job, this moon can help you to use the reputation you’ve built to leverage a better opportunity. And if you’re happy where you are professionally, this full moon could also help you to garner attention and accolades from some very influential people. Don’t be surprised if suddenly everyone wants to work with you or know more about what you do. Overall, when it comes to your career, it’s time to stop dialing it in. Think about things that make you want to get out of bed in the morning and strategize ways you can capitalize on them. Thankfully, Mercury enters Sagittarius (your zone of creativity and passion) on November 5th which will help you to get your juices flowing again. With the planet of thought and communication in this zone, your brain should be moving a mile a minute with inspiration and ideas.

Though this month won’t solely be about your professional life. Your home and family life will also call for your attention, but in a good way. That’s because pleasure-loving Venus will be moving into Scorpio, your zone of home and family, on November 7th.  As such, you may decide to redecorate or rearrange your living space, which could do wonders in improving the energy in your home as well as your mood. Entertaining guests at your home and spending time with close family and friends will also be a source of delight. If you’ve been hunting for a new place to live, Venus in Scorpio, coupled with the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, could help you to magnetize your dream home. Speaking of the new moon, if you’ve been holding on to any hurt or resentment around a strained relationship with a family member (most likely a parent), this moon may also help you with mending the rift between you or finding the healing you need to move forward. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius. With the Sun shining it’s light here, your own radiance will be hard to ignore. As such, you could find yourself with more than your fair share of adoring fans and admirers, some of which will catch your eye too. If you’re already in a relationship, you and your bae will be in the mood to rekindle the romance. On November 22nd, Neptune goes forward again in Pisces, your zone of intimacy and finances, which could help to clear up a pending or confusing financial matter.

Virgo: This month, your lesson is to figure out ways you can better put your words and ideas to work for you. Your mission begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With the help of this full moon, you could be offered the chance to teach or study abroad, or land an opportunity to get published. Think of this as your chance to bring your voice to a larger audience, allowing you to positively impact the world with what you have to say. You just have to be willing to speak up and be heard. Meanwhile, this moon is calling you to break free of self-defeating attitudes and thinking, all the while pushing you to reach for some of your biggest dreams. On the 5th, Mercury (your patron saint) leaves your zone of communication and steps into Sagittarius, your zone of home and family. This means that over the next few weeks, you may find that much of your attention is focused on something related to your home life or past. This could involve buying or selling a home, moving or relocating, or taking a trip down memory lane with family. If you need to open up to someone at this time about something you’ve been feeling or that’s been weighing on you, Mercury could also help you to get the closure or resolution that you need.      

When charming Venus moves into Scorpio on November 7th and into your zone of communication, expect your powers of charm and flirtation to go up several notches. Put this power to good use by striking up conversations and setting up meetings with people you want to get close to, as these will be the folks that will help you spread the word when it comes to something you may want to market or release to the public. At the same time, the creative inspiration you receive now will be hard to ignore, which means the ideas you generate could help you to bring in some extra money. As such, humility will only get you so far. Don’t undersell or underestimate your talent. You’ve got something worth sharing and as it turns out, it’s pretty valuable too. Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th to help you with implementing any plans that you may have along these lines. Since this area of your chart also has to do with your skill set, you may even decide to return to school or take a training course to beef up your arsenal. On November 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the attention back to your home and family. Over the next few weeks, your job will be to improve your sense of stability and to make sure you’re getting the emotional nourishment you need. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces, your zone of partnerships which could help you with releasing a flimsy relationship.                        

Libra: To paraphrase the Wu-Tang Clan – cash rules everything around you this month, C.R.E.A.M, get the money. That’s because there’s a Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of intimacy and finances on November 4th, which could have you ready to take a big step with your bae. As such, the two of you could decide to put a down a payment on a home, car, or your wedding planning expenses. If debt has been a problem for you, this moon could also help you to come up with a manageable repayment plan or a better budget. Either way, your financial security takes precedence this month, which means you could get the opportunity to build yourself a more solid foundation. For those of you recovering from heartbreak, this moon could also provide you with the push to move on and heal. With Taurus being a sign that’s associated with self-worth, the full moon can help you to see where you may need to take back your power and let go of those that don’t honor or respect you. You deserve the world, Libra. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel any different. By the 5th, communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius, your zone of communication. With Mercury at home in this zone, use the next couple of weeks to get your hands on as many new books, articles, podcasts, films, etc. that you can handle as your mind will be hungry for new info and points of view. If you have your own media project that you’d like to share, Mercury can help you to generate listeners and buzz.

On the 7th, when Venus (your patron saint) moves into Scorpio, your zone of income and possessions, get ready to make it rain. Tap into Venus’ power of attraction to draw the right job opportunity, client, or cash cow. Hint: it should be something that lights you up at the mere thought of it. Oh, and keep thinking about it to draw it to you faster. While there should be an abundance of opportunities to increase your cash flow, things may not really pop off financially until November 18th. That’s when the New Moon in Scorpio lands to help you reset your money making mojo. Meanwhile, this new moon will also be pushing you to get better with how you manage your money as well. Still, Venus will be giving you the urge to splurge, which means you shouldn’t feel bad about treating yourself to something nice. Just try not to break the bank. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, putting the focus back on your zone of communication. This means your source of warmth and energy will come from connecting with the world around you. Networking, socializing; both on and offline, will be key for you this month when it comes to getting ahead. Opportunities that you find may come by who you know or via word of mouth so keep your eyes and ears open. On the 22nd, when Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces; your zone of work, health, and routine – you’ll no longer be spinning your wheels.

Scorpio: You’re the darling of the moment, Scorpio, and this month shows no signs of that ending anytime soon. Part of this is because of the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of partnership on November 4th. With the help of this full moon, you could find yourself saying goodbye to a dead-end relationship, which could be romantic or professional. With things glowing up for you, the last thing you need is to be carrying around dead weight or dealing with unnecessary distractions. Though if things are running smoothly between you and your bae, you could decide to take things to the next level with each other; further deepening your bond. On the 5th, it’s time to talk about money, honey, as busy Mercury moves into your zone of income and self-worth. Budgeting, tracking down money owed to you, as well as sending out resumes and job applications may be a big focus this month. Overall, you should expect to spend lots of time discussing your cash and looking for ways you can bring in more of it. Consulting or freelancing may be options. On November 7th, magnetic Venus moves into Scorpio, your zone of self-image and confidence. With Venus ramping up your attraction factor, expect to be the one this month that everyone wants (I know, as if this were different from any other day). Though it won’t just be about whose attention you’re grabbing. Venus will be making sure that you fall back in love with yourself too.

Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, as an opportunity to revamp or update your wardrobe, step out with a fresh new ‘do, or to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your self-care. As such, you could decide to begin a new fitness program and drop a few pounds or increase your body positivity and learn to love yourself as is. Either way, the focus is on being kinder to yourself not pushing yourself to extremes. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius, pulling your attention back to your money. With the abundance that Sagittarius season has to offer, your goal will be to remove the blockages that you may have around prosperity and receiving, which may mean healing the wounds that scarcity or instability may have caused you in the past. Part of this healing may be recognizing how much you are loved. While you are a fighter, everything does not have to be a fight. Trust that what’s meant for you will find you. On the 22nd, Neptune ends its five month retrograde in Pisces, your zone of romance and creativity. With the planet of faith, dreams, and illusions moving forward again, you may finally decide to move forward with a creative idea or make the decision to let go of someone you can’t quite seem to pin down. The key here is not to fool yourself into thinking this person will change or become the person you need them to be. As for your creative efforts, be mindful of giving your talent away for free.

Sagittarius: Happy Birthday, Sagittarius! Your personal new year is here. Though before you get into the festivities, it looks like there’s a few loose ends that you need to tie up first, especially when it comes to your health and healing. Thanks to a Full Moon in Taurus lighting up your zone of work, health, and routine on November 4th, it’s time to put an end to any unhealthy habits that may be getting in the way of you feeling your best. What does your sleep schedule look like? Are you getting enough water? Is your skin bright and glowing or dull and dry? Are you going a little too heavy on the alcohol or sweet treats? This full moon will motivate you to get your health under control. Just remember to implement your changes bit by bit and take things one day at a time. No use in biting off more than you can handle right now anyway. At the same time, you could decide to quit a job around this time, especially if it’s been causing you more stress and aggravation than it’s worth. If you do decide to leave, don’t worry too much about whether or not you’ll be able to find something else. The universe has got your back. On November 5th, communicative Mercury is the first to arrive to your birthday party; stepping into Sagittarius and into your zone of confidence and self-image. As such, your focus turns to meeting and greeting all sorts of new people while creating new experiences and opportunities with each conversation and connection you make.

On the 7th, pleasure-seeking Venus moves into Scorpio; your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With the help of Venus, your job will be to ramp up your self-care regimen which may include yoga classes, swimming sessions, bodywork like Reiki or massage, or a meditation retreat. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to spend more time alone. You need the time away to rest and replenish your well. A note: since hosting Venus in this zone also means the chance of developing a behind the scenes love affair, just make sure that the person you set your sights on is really who they say they are, as it might not be so apparent at the start. If they seem too good to be true, they probably are. On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio helps you to turn over a new leaf when it comes to a spiritual practice or establishing a healthier work-life balance. Overall, your soul is looking for some nourishment. Feed it. This will help you with clearing out any emotional gunk or residue from the past, so you can make way for a brighter future. Come the 21st, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, kicking off your birthday season, you’ll be in a better position to receive all the goodies coming your way. As such, consider this moment a reset button of sorts, which will help you to move forward and not look back. Baby steps, though. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces, your zone of home and family. It’s time to put an unhealthy family legacy to rest.

Capricorn: There’s a saying that goes “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When it comes to November, this may be something that you’ll want to keep in mind, as this month is about letting go of what no longer works and taking a fresh approach. Your quest begins on November 4th, when the Full Moon in Taurus lands in your zone of romance and creativity. Under the influence of this moon, you could decide to bring an end to an unsatisfying love affair or have a realization of sorts on the ways in which you hold yourself back from greatness. Hint: stop dimming your light. If you’ve been plugging away at something creative, this moon could also land you in the spotlight, so don’t be shy about soaking up the attention that you deserve. On the 5th, Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of rest and healing. With Mercury working behind the scenes, your focus turns inward. Though this is not about occupying your mind with worrisome thoughts and self-doubt. In fact, it will be quite the opposite. Use Mercury to help you practice mindfulness (the power of being present to the moment) and engage the power of meditation. The goal here is to give your mind a rest and to develop your intuition. Journal writing, dream interpretation, and therapy could be beneficial too.

On November 7th, charming Venus leaves your career zone and moves into Scorpio; your zone of friendship and future plans. With Venus bringing the social butterfly out of you and putting you in everyone’s good graces, you should be able to network your way into an impressive opportunity in no time. If you have money to raise for a good cause or a crowdfund project, Venus will also be on hand to help you. Meanwhile, spending time in the company of good friends will do wonders to uplift your spirits. Overall, Venus in Scorpio will be helping you to magnetize the resources you need in order to make your hopes and wishes come true. Though this may mean that you’ll have to be willing to try something different. That’s why the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, will be helping you along; encouraging you to live by your own rules as opposed to playing it safe or following someone else’s blueprint. In other words, it’s time for you to show up for yourself. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, pulling you back inward. While the Sun is in this low-powered zone of your chart, your goal will be to catch up on your rest and to spend time in comfortable solitude; doing a bit of spiritual housekeeping. Allow Sagittarius season to help you restore your faith in yourself as well as a faith that the universe has your back. On the 22nd, when Neptune goes direct in Pisces, your zone of communication, you should feel inspired again.

Aquarius: With your star on the rise, you’re being called to level up across the board when it comes to your life. As such, you should expect some significant developments this month when it comes to where you are personally and professionally. It all begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of home and family. With the help of this moon, you could finalize a deal when it comes to owning your own home or getting the apartment you’ve been wanting. At the same time, if you’ve been dealing with an overbearing parent or a toxic family member, this moon could also push you to set down some healthier boundaries. Ultimately the goal of this Taurus Moon is to help you clear anything getting in the way of your comfort, stability, and peace of mind. On the 5th, communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius; your zone of friendship and future plans. Over the next few weeks, you’ll find yourself being in the right place at the right time when it comes to connecting with others, on and offline. As a result, you could meet people with enough clout and influence to help you capitalize on the stellar reputation that you’ve been building. As such, don’t underestimate the power of word of mouth. Meanwhile, you might be called to organize an event or initiative for a worthwhile cause. Mercury will be on your side helping to ensure that things go according to plan. A note: Mercury will be going retrograde next month so try to get as much done as you can this month.

On the 7th, money-making Venus steps into Scorpio; your zone of career and achievement. With Venus helping to turn up your wow factor, you can use this time to leverage yourself a pay raise, promotion, or glowing references from some of the most influential people in your field. Just make sure you continue to bring your A game as all eyes will be on you. That said, you might also garner some media buzz or attention as the result of your name being the one on everyone’s lips right now. Though look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th to make your move if you’ve been thinking about switching gears in your career, starting your own business, or going after a position with more prestige and better pay. The new moon will be helping you to implement whatever plans you set into motion at this time, so shoot for the stars. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the focus back to your friendships and associations. Over the next month, focus on building genuine connections with others that give back as much as they receive from you. There’s no reason why you should be carrying all the weight all the time. (There goes that need for boundaries again). At the same time, when it comes to fulfilling something you been wishing for, Sagittarius season will remind you there’s more than one way to get to where you want to be. Don’t get stuck in tunnel vision. On the 22nd, when Neptune begins moving direct again in Pisces; your zone of income and finances, it’s time to stop measuring yourself by what you have or don’t have.

Pisces: To paraphrase your fellow Pisces, Erykah Badu – I know you’ve got to get your hustle on. That’s why there will be a bevy of planets floating through your zone of career and achievement once Sagittarius season gets underway. But before you get there, the Full Moon in Taurus (November 4th) that lands in your zone of communication, will be on hand to help you make a mental breakthrough. This will be especially important for you if you’ve been feeling blocked or unclear as to what direction you should take, as this moon will be helping you to clear out the cobwebs and tap into your intuition. At the same time, if you have a project or event that you’d like to share with the public, this moon can also help you to spread your message far and wide. Speaking of your message, on November 5th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius – your career zone. This means that you could get the opportunity to speak or present at a major event or in the company of some major movers and shakers in your field. As such, you’ll have to polish up your presentation and study up, as you’ll want to leave a positive, lasting impression. On the 7th, pleasure-seeking Venus moves into Scorpio; your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. If you haven’t been feeling the excitement yet of the good things that are developing for you, take a cue from Venus and pursue anything and everything that gets your heart pumping.

Meanwhile, the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, pushes you to move beyond your comfort zone. Traveling or getting a change of scenery could help you to open your mind to new possibilities and fill you with inspiration. The goal of this moon is to help you to reconnect to your thirst for life and sense of adventure. Since this zone also handles media and publishing, you may want to consider pitching article ideas to editors or beginning the proposal for the book you’ve always wanted to write. With Venus and the new moon sharing the same space in your chart, a romance could sweep you off of your feet too. You might find yourself falling for someone of a different culture or of a different zip code. Either way, this person may be able to open up your world in ways that you can’t imagine. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, pulling your focus back to obtaining boss level status. This means your source of confidence and creativity will come by way of pursuing some of your biggest goals and ambitions. With all eyes on you now, don’t hold yourself back with self-doubt. The universe is calling you to step-up and take your life into your own hands. What will you do with it? Here’s a hint: own your power. On the 22nd, Neptune (your patron saint) ends its five month retrograde in Pisces, your zone of confidence and self-image. With Neptune moving forward again, you should feel like you’re moving forward too. It’s time to do the damn thing.

Aries: Between the Full Moon in Aries that landed in your zone of confidence and self-image on October 5th, and expansive Jupiter moving into Scorpio (your zone of finances, intimacy, and rebirth) on the 10th, you can expect this to be a full throttle kind of month. With this combination pushing you to get in touch with your deepest desires (and fears), expect to come face to face with the ways in which you hold yourself back by choosing to skim the surface. In other words, Aries, it’s time for some soul searching. Meanwhile, Jupiter will be working on your behalf, helping you to get closer to financial security. You could receive financial blessings by way of your partner or a lump sum payment owed to you. If looking to apply for a home loan or another form of funding, you could get some good news in the weeks to come. Of course, hosting Jupiter in this area of your chart could mean lots of sexy time too. Though with Jupiter in Scorpio, you’ll be looking for more of an emotional connection.

Since this area of your chart also handles business relationships, you could find yourself attracting a high-profile client or landing a financially rewarding business deal.

On the 17th, communicative Mercury enters Scorpio and it’s time to take a hard look at your finances. If debt has been an issue, Mercury can help you to create a financial plan to pay it off. Working with an accountant or money coach may be helpful too. On October 19th, the New Moon in Libra can help you to turn over a new leaf where a significant relationship is concerned. Some Aries may decide to take a relationship to the next level while others may want to mark the new moon as a time to get explicitly clear with themselves and the universe about what they’re looking for in a partner. If you fall into the latter category, you may be pleasantly surprised, especially as Mars (your ruling planet) moves into romantic Libra on the 22nd, revving up the sparks. One word of caution: hosting Mars in your partnership zone can make the atmosphere ripe for arguments. Just make sure those arguments don’t lead to any lasting damage, unless of course it’s absolutely necessary to burn a bridge.

Taurus: Now that the Full Moon in Aries (October 5th) brought the emotional gunk you’ve been carrying to the surface by illuminating your zone of healing and endings; the stars will be helping you to continue the process of shedding what you no longer need.

In other words, it’s time to let go of the resentments and disappointments of the past. Like Scorpio, your counterpart, you tend to hold onto things for a very long time, which includes grudges. Though like your counterpart you are also incredibly resilient. As the planets shift into Scorpio, your mission will be to call on that resiliency when it comes to love. You can have the relationship you want, though you must believe it’s possible. Romantically, you’ll do best with those that have a desire to grow and explore with you.

Perhaps it may be time to cut certain people off. Meanwhile, all-or-nothing Pluto will also be helping you to get serious about pursuing your dreams, while pushing you to stay clear of anything where you’re just going through the motions. On the 29th, Mercury enters Libra and it’s time to take a long, hard look at your finances. However, money won’t be the only focus. Your feelings and your ability to voice them will be important too.

Aries: This month, it’s all about finding the freedom to be who you really are, and your story begins on August 3rd with Uranus, the planet of innovation and rebellion, going retrograde in Aries; your zone of confidence and self-image. Under the Uranus retrograde, part of your mission will be reconnecting with those unique parts of you that you’ve been fighting to hide, while working on ways you can proudly accept and express those facets of yourself. You’ve heard the term “unapologetic”? Going forward, that term may need to become a self-made mantra, especially with a game-changing Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius lighting up your zone of friends and future plans on August 7th. Under the influence of this eclipse, it could be time to say good-bye to fair-weather friends and those that put conditions on your relationship to them. In other words, true friends aren’t threatened by your growth or your authenticity. In fact, they support it. At the same time, you could also discover that the groups or associations you belong to are those with whom you no longer identify. Overall, you’re being encouraged to find kinship among people that align with the person you’re becoming.

On August 12th, communicative Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo – your zone of health, work, and routine. With busy Mercury spinning backwards here, it will be important for you to finish pending assignments, develop a way to keep better track of files and documents (back them up!), and to double check dates, emails, etc. Since Mercury retrograde tends to mess with scheduling; canceling and bringing things up at the last minute, you may want to try to keep your schedule as light and flexible as possible this month. In terms of your health, Mercury retrograde is a good time for check-ups and making sure everything is in tip-top shape. Meanwhile, things or items that you use on a regular basis, like a laptop or camera, may need to be repaired or replaced.

Your story continues to unfold with the total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21st, which lands in your zone of creativity, romance, and adventure. At the urge of this eclipse, you could decide to develop a creative project that could catapult you into the spotlight while reconnecting with that free-spirited side of you that lives life with passion.

Over the next month, your focus will be to pay attention to the small stuff as well as putting in the time and dedication required to be the best at what you do. On August 25th, Saturn goes direct again in Sagittarius – your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. If you’ve been feeling a bit gun shy when it comes to going after what you want or throwing yourself wholeheartedly into a dream or vision, Saturn moving forward should help you with moving past any self-limiting beliefs that you’ve had. With Saturn being a planet that rewards us for the work we put into things, Saturn direct can show you where you need to put in the work to turn your big ideas into something real. On the 26th, Venus enters Leo ramping up the romance, fun, and creative juice. When Mercury re-enters Leo on the 31st, be mindful of exes returning. Though time spent with friends or learning something new will make you happy.

Taurus: The month kicks off with Uranus retrograde in Aries (your zone of rest, healing, and retreat) on August 3rd, which calls you to release ways you may be holding on to the past, as well as to examine ways you may be resistant to going with the flow. That anxiety you’re feeling is not because there’s impending doom afoot, it’s because you’re still trying to control things that you have no control over. Look to Uranus retrograde to help you with letting go while pushing you to rely on your intuition as opposed to fear. On August 7th, there’s a game-changing Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius illuminating your zone of career, fame, and achievement. With the help of this eclipse, you could score a promotion or an impressive job offer, receive widespread attention or accolades for your work, or make moves to launch an entrepreneurial effort. Some Taurus could even decide to tie the knot. Overall, the goal of this eclipse is to help you better align with your purpose, while helping you to recognize that much of what you’ve done up until now has led to you this point. Though know that whatever path you’re embarking on, it’s less about blind ambition or “doing the right thing” and more about doing what deeply resonates with you.

On the 12th, Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo; your zone of creativity, romance, and adventure. With Mercury spinning backwards here, you may decide to revisit a creative project with a new pair of eyes. Editing, revising, and fine tuning your work could help you to create a work of art, while some Taurus may take pleasure in rediscovering something they love. In terms of love, Mercury retrograde can stir up havoc by bringing exes back into the picture and fueling misunderstandings between lovers. The best way to handle this energy is to be crystal clear with yourself as to whether an ex deserves another chance, as well as making sure you and your love are on the same page - no matter if it's simple communication or something deeper.

On August 21st, the total Solar Eclipse in Leo swoops through your zone of home and family. With this eclipse charging up this area of your life, look to big changes where your home or living space is concerned. You could decide to move, relocate, or upgrade your house. For some Taurus, there could be a new addition to the family. With this zone of your chart also connected to the past and your emotional development, you could also find that this eclipse pushes you to release unhealthy family dynamics or conditioning, especially if trauma or wounding took place. Recognize that you don’t have to let the past dictate your present or your future. You can start fresh. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo, kicking off Virgo season. Over the next month, your job will be on dedicating yourself to your craft and learning the importance of living authentically. If there’s something about you that helps you to stand out from the rest, you’re called to show it off proudly. When Saturn goes forward in Sagittarius (your zone of intimacy and finances) on the 25th, you should have some clear solutions on how to better handle your money, especially when it comes to paying off debts. In terms of intimacy, Saturn direct can help you with setting healthier boundaries and letting go of toxic relationships. By the 26th, when Venus moves into Leo, you should find your home and family life to be a source of joy. Use Venus to help you redecorate or jazz up your living space, as it can help with brightening or shifting a mood. When Mercury re-enters Leo on the 31st, it may be time to have a heart to heart talk with someone you love.

Gemini: Get ready for a growth spurt as this month it’s all about breaking barriers and moving beyond what you already know. The month begins when Uranus, the planet of freedom and unconventional thinking, begins its five-month backspin in Aries (August 3rd), your zone of friends, associations, and future plans. Under this Uranus retrograde, it’s time to review whether your current associations align with the person you are becoming. People that won’t allow you the space and total acceptance to grow into your own, won’t be people you’ll want to be around for too much longer. This will be especially true when the powerful Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius illuminates your zone of travel, education, and opportunity on August 7th. With this eclipse pushing you towards bigger and better things, it’ll be time to put an end to anything that doesn’t afford you the chance to spread out and flex your wings. Some Gemini may decide to return to school or take a pilgrimage overseas, while those of you that work in the field of media could see a project come to fruition that lands you on the map.

While things will be moving at warp speed this month, the devil will be in the details when Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo (your zone of home and family) beginning on August 12th. With your ruling planet spinning backwards, you may feel a bit off kilter too which is why hosting this retrograde in this secluded area of your chart will help you to get grounded and find your center. Reconnecting with loving family, while cutting ties or communication with toxic ones can give you the fuel you need to keep going. In terms of your physical space, Mercury retrograde can help you to get necessary repairs around your home or help you with finding a new one, especially as Venus in Cancer brings relief to your financial sector.

By August 21st, things get rocking and rolling again under the game changing Solar Eclipse in Leo, which lights up your zone of communication and ideas. Since Solar Eclipses tend to usher in new beginnings, you’ll find that the months that follow this eclipse will be ripe for learning new skills, shedding old ways of thinking, initiating a creative project, or cultivating a platform that allows you to bring your unique voice to a wider audience. However, with Mercury still retrograde until September 5th, it will be best to take care of what’s already on your plate, so you can clear space for the good things to come. On the 22nd, the Sun enters Virgo. With the Sun here, you should find yourself focused on home related matters, especially in terms of your stability. If things have felt like they’ve been in flux, Virgo season could help you to regroup. At the same time, Virgo season will also provide the opportunity for you to work on moving past an old hurt and finding the emotional strength you need. With responsible Saturn going direct on August 25th in your relationship zone, you should have a clear idea around the future of a romantic or business partnership. When Venus enters Leo on the 26th, it’s time to capitalize on some of those money-making ideas you came up with during the first half of the month. Don’t be shy about singing your own praises or showing off your skills when it comes to connecting with others, as you never know who you might meet - especially as Mercury re-enters Leo on the 31st.

Cancer: The month opens with Uranus, the planet of innovation and independence, going retrograde (August 3rd) in Aries; your zone of career and achievement. With Uranus spinning backwards here, your job is to review whether you need to take a more unconventional approach to fulfilling your goals and ambitions. You may have a series of aha moments, which may help you to realize that there’s no template or script for you to follow when it comes to living your life. Oftentimes those that become leaders in their field or leave a lasting impact on the world, have done so because they were brave enough to break the rules and do things their own way. Where are you blindly following rules in your life that prevent you from living at your full potential? When the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius lands in your zone of intimacy and rebirth on August 7th, themes around your personal power – how you use it and ways that you may be giving it away – may come up for examination. If an intimate relationship has felt manipulative and emotionally abusive instead of supportive and loving, you could find the strength to end it. Meanwhile a pressing financial matter could help you with facing your fears around money and security.

On the 12th, communicative Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo, your zone of communication. As a result, be wary of delays or issues with the gizmos and gadgets you regularly use (e.g. cell phone, laptop, car, etc.). When it comes to tech, Mercury retrograde usually means that one of these items will have to be repaired or replaced, so make sure you save your important stuff to the cloud. When it comes to communicating with others – be mindful of what you share in public, check documents for typos and mistakes, double check dates and follow-up on things promised during conversations/meetings. P.S. watch that trigger finger when it comes to texts and DMs too. Your chances for confusion and misunderstandings are high now, so prep accordingly. Travel-wise, give yourself extra time to get around.

On August 21st, the Solar Eclipse in Leo gets your money zone buzzing. Under the influence of this eclipse you find a new job opportunity, score a prominent client, or land a raise or a bonus. However, much of what you get doesn’t only come by your hard work, but by also recognizing that you deserve these things. If you’ve been dealing with fears around scarcity and lack, this eclipse will push you to believe in yourself in a way that you may never have before. With Venus still in your sign until the 26th, you shouldn’t have trouble winning people over. All you need to do is be yourself. On the 22nd, the Sun steps into Virgo and joins Mercury. During the next few weeks, your focus will be on honing or refining your skills, finding the right audience for your writing or ideas, or working on ways to improve the way you communicate with others. Learning something new that gets your brain going might not be a bad idea either. When Saturn goes direct in Sagittarius (your zone of health, work, and routine) on August 25th, you may finally find a solution to issues that you may have had with your health or a job situation. At the same time, having Saturn direct will also help you with paring down your schedule or workload, so as not to waste your time and energy on unnecessary obligations. On the 26th, Venus enters Leo, sweetening the deal when it comes to your cash flow or a financial opportunity. Though when Mercury re-enters Leo on August 31st, it’s time to go back and look at how you spend and handle your money. Be accountable.  

Leo: This month, your mission is to address the ways you hem yourself in and block your own progress and it all begins on August 3rd when Uranus, the planet of independence, goes retrograde in your zone of travel, opportunity, and education. With Uranus spinning backwards in this area of your chart, it’s time to acknowledge where you may be letting old ways of thinking and outdated beliefs stop you from pursuing the life you really want to live. In other words, it’s time to shake things up. Changing your environment, feeding your mind, and honoring your uniqueness will take you a long way. The key here is to do things the way you want to and not because you’re trying to score points or win praise from others. And speaking of others, when a potent Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius shakes up your zone of partnerships on August 7th, you could find yourself saying goodbye to a relationship that has been stifling or restrictive in some way. Meanwhile, those of you in relationships that are flourishing, this eclipse could bring an important turning point that could lead to a deepening of your commitment together (like marriage). Overall, the message of this eclipse is to push you to cultivate relationships that better align with the person you're meant to be.

On the 12th, communicative Mercury goes retrograde in your zone of income and self-worth. With the help of Mercury retrograde, it’s time to go over your checkbook and make sure the money going in and out of your account makes sense. Since Mercury retrograde is notorious for delays and miscommunication, it will be important for you not to make any super expensive purchases now as well as staying on top of your financial records and any money owed to you. In terms of self-worth, this is also time for you to think about ways you may be selling yourself short and settling for less than you deserve. If you’ve been putting in tons of hard work with little compensation, Mercury retrograde can help you to wise up fast.

Though, things don’t really take off until August 21st, as that's when a game changing Solar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of confidence and self-image. Under the influence of this eclipse, you’re pushed to express yourself as authentically as possible. Whatever self-doubt or fears have been getting in your way - now’s the time to reconnect to your sense of “can-do". You may find yourself motivated to shed extra pounds, change your look, and update your wardrobe in a way that reflects the image that you want to get across. At the same time, this eclipse will also push you to realize that when you actively seek praise from others instead of affirming yourself, you run the risk of losing yourself. Don’t lose yourself. On the 22nd, the Sun steps into Virgo, joining Mercury. With the Sun here, it’s time to start thinking about what you want most and begin putting in the work to get it. Money and security will be a big theme for you over the course of Virgo season, which means that whatever opportunities or projects are presented to you now, you’ll need to make sure that they don’t distract, drain, or delay you from things that will offer you the most reward. With Saturn going direct in Sagittarius in your zone of romance and creativity, you may decide to bring an old project back to life or decide to move forward in recommitting yourself to your creative energy. In terms of romance, you may have a better idea about what you want. With Venus entering Leo on the 26th, followed by Mercury re-entering Leo on the 31st, your powers of persuasion are strong. Use that power wisely.

Virgo: You can consider this month an awakening of sorts, as there are things that the Universe wants to call your attention to; things bubbling beneath the surface that need to be addressed. Your lesson begins with Uranus retrograde in Aries (August 3rd) which covers your zone of intimacy and finances. With the planet of independence and radical changes spinning backwards in one of the most private areas of your chart, you’re called to work on accepting those pieces of you that you or others may have deemed bad. While you often go to great lengths to keep it all together, the fact of the matter is that no one is perfect Virgo – not even you. Sure, you can strive for perfection but what happens if you miss the mark or things don’t go according to plan? It can’t be the end of the world or you. Plus, when you own your “stuff” it makes it less likely it’ll come spilling out in ugly, messy ways. On August 7th, there’s a powerful Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius landing in your zone of health, work, and routine. With Aquarius also representing freedom and sweeping change, you could find that this eclipse brings you to improve your health and your relationship to your physical body. At the same time, you could make a rapid exit from your job, especially if it no longer fits in with what you want, taxes too much of your time and energy, and feels like a dead-end.

By the 12th, Mercury – your patron saint – goes retrograde in Virgo, your zone of confidence and self-image. With Mercury moving backwards in your sign, it’s time to rethink your trajectory and how you approach the world around you. This may include relationships you’ve established, as well as the words and thoughts that you use to inform your experiences. Note - it's possible for you to speak things into existence. Mercury retrograde may help you to be more mindful of what you speak. Above all else, know that it’s OK if you don’t have all the answers right now. The important thing is that you give yourself time and be patient with yourself. Learn to be present to the richness of the moment. Catch your breath.

The importance of slowing down will be highlighted again on August 21st, under the Solar Eclipse in Leo. With this eclipse landing in your zone of rest, healing, and retreat, expect to make dramatic changes when it comes to your spiritual and emotional needs. Right now, your focus is to clear out all of the psychic gunk that you’ve accumulated within the past year to make way for the fresh beginnings and goodies that your birthday season will bring you. Part of this work may mean developing or sticking closely to a spiritual or meditative practice, working with a therapist or healer, or engaging your intuitive powers by recognizing when it’s time to let things go. Since this area of your chart is also connected to creative energy, finding an outlet through activities like music or photography could help with alleviating stress and anxiety. On the 22nd, the Sun enters Virgo and your birthday season begins! With the Sun on your team now, expect lots of warmth, attention, and good vibes headed your way. If you’re in need of a confidence boost Virgo season can help you find your mojo again. On the 25th, serious Saturn begins moving forward in Sagittarius, your zone of home and family. You should have no qualms about letting go of dysfunctional family ties or a living situation that is no longer working for you. With security and stability being a major focus for you now, Saturn will push you to do the work it takes to make sure you have an adequate roof over your head and a little drama under that roof as possible.

With the help of Uranus retrograde, your mission is to review whether the partnerships and on-on-one relationships in your life adequately reflect and accept your uniqueness. At the same time, you’re also asked to review where you may be intolerant or unforgiving of others when it comes to their quirks and self-expression. Expect your relationship ideals to be challenged and perhaps changed and changed again as you come to truth of what it means to be a whole, separate being in relationship to another. Relationships that seem stuck or stalled in some way may need to be renegotiated. On the 7th, an influential Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, lands in your zone of romance and creativity. Some Libras may decide to pull the plug on a dead-end love affair, while other Libras may decide to take a romance into more serious territory.

With regards to your creative talents, there’s a chance you could bring a project to fruition that garners you fanfare and praise.

When Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo, your zone of healing and retreat, on August 12th; pay close attention to your dreams and intuitive instincts as they will help to guide you through this period of fuzziness and confusion.

Since Mercury retrograde is also a period where delays and hiccups abound, don’t worry about pressing forward with anything right now (especially anything new) as this is a time for wrapping up unfinished business and refining what’s already in the works.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo, alongside Mercury, and your focus turns to rest and relaxation. Look to Virgo season to be a time for catching your breath, unplugging, and developing a meditative practice to quiet and clear your head. If you have any solo projects to do, Virgo season is perfect for hiding away and getting things done. On August 25th, responsible Saturn turns direct in Sagittarius, your zone of communication. With Saturn moving forward, you should find it easier to toss out stale ideas and thinking, while engaging people and activities that put your brain to good use.

Meanwhile, this could also be a time of sudden insight or aha moments, so pay careful attention to the ideas and inspiration that come to you.

These are all themes that will be prominent for you this month as a bevy of planets in Cancer (Sun, Moon, Mercury and Mars) electrify your zone of intimacy, rebirth, and finances. The intrigue begins on June 4th with Mars moving into Cancer which will be turning up your sex drive and magnetism times one thousand. You should have no shortage of admirers as a result, however you’ll find that just anyone won’t do as you’re craving a soul-level kind of bond. If you’re in a relationship Mars could help you to turn up the heat in the bedroom, which could help to bring you and your lover closer. Meanwhile, for those of you that may be feeling like your relationship is a dead end, Mars will also be on hand to give you the courage to say goodbye, especially if this person has been a manipulative, draining, or abusive presence in your life. One thing to note: hosting Mars here could bring up old resentments, traumas, or pain. Best to be prepared to work with a therapist, guide, or healer that can help you to heal your wounds and reclaim your power. Overall, you will be learning the value of strength, vulnerability, and how the two aren’t necessarily exclusive.

Self-care and preservation will continue to be a theme when Venus enters Taurus, your zone of health, work, and routine, on June 6th. With Venus here, your job will be to figure out how to insert love into your everyday, whether it’s doing things that make you feel good on the inside or out, or doing work that brings you a sense of fulfillment. If you’ve been on the job hunt, there’s a chance you could receive a job offer with true growth potential. A bump in salary could also be possible. On the 6th, Mercury also moves home to Gemini, your zone of partnership which could make business partnerships and collaborations a source of extra income, while romantic relationships win with a little spontaneity. Those that can show you something new are the ones to look for.

On June 9th, the Full Moon in Sagittarius lands in your zone of self-image and confidence. Under the full moon putting the spotlight on you and your needs, you could have an aha moment when it comes to what you want and the direction you want to go in, especially when it comes to leaving behind something or someone that’s been holding you back. You of all people know that you have the power to write your destiny regardless of whatever may happen. This moon will give you the fuel you need to move past challenges. At the same time, this moon could help to bring attention and fanfare to your front door, which means if you’ve been wanting to get noticed or put your name out there, this moon will help spread the word far and wide. Another blessing comes around on June 9th when Jupiter, your patron saint, finally moves forward in Libra, your zone of friendship and future plans. With Jupiter moving forward, you should be able to better capitalize on the reputation, work, or brand that you’ve been steadily building. Between Mercury in Gemini and Jupiter in Libra, this is the time to connect and establish relationships with others as a means of moving forward too.

On the 21st, the Sun enters Cancer bringing the focus back inward. With Mercury also entering Cancer that day, you can work with this cosmic combination to help you with releasing any outdated beliefs while learning how your thoughts and feelings influence what happens in your outer world. Simply put: if you expect things to go sour they will. Focus on the things that you do want. Then look to the New Moon in Cancer (June 23rd) to deliver. P.S. watch your money closely.

Relationships are a major focus for you this month, with multiple planets in Cancer activating your zone of partnership and marriage. The action begins on June 4th, when Mars enters Cancer first. With Mars here, you’ll feel motivated to join forces with others as a way of improving or increasing what you already have, especially when it comes to business partnerships. The point of having Mars here is to team up and learn from those that can help you to shake up your routines and try something new. If you have a large task to undertake, Mars can help you to get people on your side that are focused and ready to work. If you’re in a romantic relationship, you’ll find that staying active and busy together will recharge the two of you as well as the relationship. Meanwhile, Capricorns looking for love will find themselves being attracted the most to adventurous, passionate souls. However, the downside to this transit is of course arguments and fighting. If there’s something you’ve been avoiding dealing with when it comes to an important relationship, Mars will stir it up and force you to confront it.

The intensity eases up a bit as Venus enters Taurus – your zone of fun, creativity and romance – on June 6th. Love becomes a bright spot for you, increasing the chances of meeting someone new, while coupled Capricorns should find themselves happily remembering what they love about their partner. Creatively, you’ll also be doing well, which means this is the perfect time for bringing a creative brainchild into the world. Not only will Venus be helping you making money from what you create, but you’ll remember what it’s like to truly enjoy what you do. If pleasure has been a foreign concept lately, it’s time to indulge. When Mercury enters Gemini (your zone of work, health, and routine) on June 6th, prepare to be busy. Work to get your health and schedule in order.

Your health will also be highlighted under the Full Moon in Sagittarius in on June 9th, as the moon illuminates your zone of rest, retreat, and healing. This full moon could feel rather cathartic for you, so it will be important to give yourself some space or solitude to release any feelings you’ve been trying to solider through. Look to this as a time to release the things you can’t control, to let go of any self-limiting beliefs, and to seek out resources that support you on an emotional and spiritual level (like a meditation retreat). On the same day Jupiter goes direct in Libra, your zone of fame, career, and achievement. Things may have slowed down significantly in your professional life over the last few months, as the goal was to help you reassess your direction and what you envisioned for yourself in terms of your plans and goals. Now that the planet of opportunity is moving forward again, you can expect to move forward too. This time things will feel much easier and progress will be made much faster.

On the 21st, the Sun enters Cancer followed by communicative Mercury. Over the next few weeks, expect to meet all sorts of interesting people that can help to open your mind to all sorts of things that you may have never thought possible. For couples, this could be a good time to work on communication issues. When the New Moon in Cancer arrives on the 23rd, it’s time to do some house cleaning with your relationships.

There’s a lot going on this month – like literally. Your job will be making sure you keep your head above it all. The action starts on June 4th when aggressive Mars enters Cancer; your zone of health, work, and routine. With Mars heating up the scene, expect your schedule and work day to get real hectic, which means there will be lots more on your plate to handle. However, don’t fret too much as Mars will be giving you the energy to tackle whatever comes your way. On the same token, Mars in Cancer can be quite an emotional energy to deal with which means you’re going to have healthy outlets available to channel it. Look into boxing classes, hot yoga, Zumba, or anything that allows you to sweat and get that energy out! Be wary of emotional eating as well. Meanwhile, you could find your co-workers or boss getting under your skin faster than usual, which could have you ready to quit and move on. If you’ve been working in a toxic or unproductive work environment for far too long, Mars can help you find the motivation to move on.

By June 6th, Venus enters Taurus; your zone of home and family. With pleasure-loving Venus here, you’ll find the most joy and comfort kicking it around the house, whether with family, friends, or alone. Venus could also help you to redecorate or jazz up your living space, which could be helpful in shifting the mood or energy of your home. With all that will be going on in the world, it will be important that you have a happy space to retreat to and recharge your batteries. The intensity eases up a bit as Mercury moves home to Gemini (your zone of fun, romance, and creativity) on June 6th as well. With curious and chatty Mercury here, you’ll be in the mood to shake the dust from your feet and party. Try to get in as much fun as you can, as it will be another way you can blow off steam. Love could bring you a delightful surprise too.

On June 9th, the Full Moon in Sagittarius lights up your zone of friendship and future plans. Since full moons often represent endings or things coming to a head, there’s a chance that you and a friend might not see eye to eye. If this friend hasn’t exactly been a friend to you, saying goodbye may be exactly what you need. Another way the message of this moon could manifest, is by helping to bring you bring more attention to who you are and what you do. With this area of your chart associated with the internet and social media, you could make some major noise now that could get you noticed. On the same day, Jupiter begins moving forward in Libra (your zone of travel, education, and opportunity), which means if you’ve been feeling stuck, stalled, or stagnant in any way, you’ll have the chance to push through and get moving again. If you haven’t had the opportunity to travel abroad, Jupiter will have you ready to book that trip. Meanwhile you could also receive word of an award or acceptance when it comes to a degree program.

On the 21st the Sun enters Cancer, which means that your source of energy and confidence will come by prioritizing your responsibilities and taking better care of your body. Look to Mercury’s move to Cancer (also on the 21st) to help you with planning and getting organized. On the 23rd the New Moon in Cancer can help you start a new fitness regimen, get rid of clutter, or change unhealthy habits.

It’s time for some good times and good lovin’ this month, thanks to a crew of planets moving through Cancer; your zone of romance, creativity, and fun. The fun begins when passionate Mars enters Cancer on June 4th, stirring up your craving for thrills and excitement. Look for opportunities to get out and about and try something that you’ve never done, like deep sea diving, surfing, or driving cross country. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself in high demand either, because once people get a glimpse of that glow you’ll have, they’ll find you impossible to resist. If looking for love, Mars will bring some hot, romantic, and adventurous souls to your door step. If you choose to let one of them in, there’s a strong possibility they will open you up to positive new experiences, which could be inspirational and affirming. One thing to note, Mars isn’t exactly the committing type so enjoy the ride while it lasts as you never know how far the journey will take you.

Venus will also be on hand helping you to meet new people and pursue your creative ideas once she moves home to Taurus, your zone of communication, on June 6th. If you have something you’ve been planning that you want to share with others and put on the map, Venus will be blessing you with the gift of gab in a way that can help you talk yourself into just about anything you want. This will also be a good time you have something that visually represents you and your work like a website or Instagram account as people will be wanting to know more about you and what you do. This could also translate into something good for you financially. When Mercury moves home to Gemini (your zone of home and family) on June 6th, you may find yourself considering a move or reconnecting with your family or relatives. Since Mercury is big on thinking and writing, you might find that keeping a journal or discussing your feelings with someone you trust could be cathartic and comforting.

On June 9th, the Full Moon in Sagittarius lands in your zone of fame, career, and achievement. With this full moon thrusting you into the spotlight, you could receive reward or recognition for your hard work. As such, a promotion or some media attention could be presented to you. Sagittarius is a sign that’s all about going further, doing bigger, and doing better. Keep your eyes on the prize this week, as you could also decide to make a swift exit from where you currently work with the intent to go after an opportunity you really want. On that same day, Jupiter begins moving forward in Libra – your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. If things have felt slow (or unlucky) in matters of love or money, Jupiter direct will get things moving again in a positive direction. Tap Jupiter’s lucky powers to help you with attracting what you deeply desire. Keep faith and it can happen.

On June 21st, the Sun enters Cancer which will motivate you to live your most authentic life. Simply put: if you’ve been trying to live life according to someone else’s standard, Cancer season will push you to shine your light and be yourself regardless of what anyone else has to say about it. When Mercury moves into Cancer on the 21st as well, you will find yourself in one of the most creative spaces that you’ve been in in some time. Use Mercury to intuitively follow through on any inspiration that you get as what you come up with now will be golden. Look to the New Moon on June 23rd to give yourself permission to start from a clean slate.

 

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.

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.

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.

Capricorn: This month may push you to suspend your belief in reality (temporarily) as now is not the time for stark realism but more about giving yourself space to dream, create, and have faith in what seems impossible. Before you write me off though, take a moment to consider that for some time now there’s been something bubbling underneath the surface for you that feels a lot like inspiration and creative energy. You may be feeling this strongly now with Venus, the planet of art and beauty, re-entering Pisces – your zone of thought and communication – on April 2. Since Venus is also connected to worth and value, Venus retrograde asks that you reevaluate your ideas, seeing them as something worth investing in rather than shooing them away. While you pride yourself on being practical, sometimes you can stifle yourself in the process. This theme is repeated near April 6, as Saturn (your patron saint) begins its five month retrograde in Sagittarius, your zone of rest, healing, and dreams. As Saturn loves responsibility, sometimes Saturn can cause us to take on too much of it, which can cause us to become heavy with feelings like guilt, worry, and doubt. Though with Saturn retrograde this is your time to dig in, find your resilience, and toss out these kinds of self-debilitating emotions. Use Saturn to help you restore your spiritual faith.

However you choose to do this, recognize that you of all people deserve to be here and to be adored in the process. On April 20, Pluto begins its five month retrograde in Capricorn, your zone of self-image and confidence. With the Dark One retracing its steps, it may time to come to terms with your own dark side and begin to love yourself as the whole complex being you are. Know that when you can accept your own shit, it makes you less prone to taking on other people’s shit too, while holding space for their own complexities. On that same day, Mercury moves back into Aries, your zone of home and family which could have you waxing nostalgic. While it could be fun taking a trip down memory lane, be mindful of getting stuck to deeply in the past. Use this as an opportunity for closure if needed. By the 21st, confident Mars moves to Gemini, your zone of health, work, and routine. With Mars revving you up, this could be a good time to get back in the gym or throw yourself into a project that requires lots of energy, discipline, and focus.

With Venus being in a soulful sign like Pisces, it’s going to get harder to ignore a lack of fulfillment when it comes to the money you earn and how you earn it. Intuitively, you may already know the moves you need to make in order to move past this challenge, but you’re going to have to reach down deep to find the courage to actually follow-through. When confident Mars moves into Gemini near the end of the month (April 21) and lands in your zone of adventure and self-expression, you should have no problem finding that passion and strength you need to move forward. In the meantime, Saturn begins its five month retrograde in Sagittarius, your zone of friendship and allies. With responsible Saturn backtracking here, you may need to reexamine some of your friendships to see if they’re still worth keeping around. With you being at the precipice right now, that weird place we can find ourselves in just before a breakthrough, it’s important that you’re surrounded with people that encourage you. As such, it may be time to distance yourself from anyone that’s been known to sow doubt and fear into your head. Not that you need “yes men” in your life, you just need genuine support. When Mercury goes retrograde in Taurus, your zone of home and family, on April 9; the universe continues to push you to get grounded and centered.

On the 19th, when the Sun enters Taurus, your source of warmth and confidence comes by tending to your private life. Reconnect with friends and family, make time to recharge at home – basically do anything over these next few weeks that nourishes your heart and soul. On the 20th, Pluto begins its five month retrograde in Capricorn, your zone of rest, endings, and soulful encounters. With Pluto pulling up the dark and dirty stuff that you would much rather avoid, use the next few months to claim your power back from anything that scares you or has caused you trauma in some way. Working with a therapist, guide, or healer could help you to heal your wounds and release the pain you may be feeling. When Mercury backtracks into Aries (your zone of communication) on, also on April 20, be mindful of what you share in public and back up your files and documents. Mercury will be asking that you slow down long enough to catch up to yourself and pay closer attention to the details in your life. If you find yourself feeling a bit foggy, use meditation to help you clear your head. On April 26, there’s a New Moon in Taurus stopping by, that can help you with starting from a clean slate, whether it comes to letting the past go or perhaps moving to a new home. Overall, you can tap into this moon to help you improve your sense of stability and security. When Venus enters Aries on the 28th, your words are golden. Use them wisely.

Pisces: Self-love is the best love for you this month as sweet Venus re-enters Pisces, your zone of self-image and confidence on April 2. With the planet associated with self-worth and love hanging out in this zone, look to ways that you can recommit to yourself and fall head over heels for yourself all over again. This may mean revamping your wardrobe or practicing body acceptance. Even if you think your body and how you physically look could use some improvement, take a gentle approach with yourself instead. Knocking yourself on the number of donuts you’ve eaten won’t help. Choose a better lifestyle because you’re choosing you right now; simple as that. Since Venus is in charge of relationships, how you mate and relate will also come up for assessment while Venus is in Pisces. If you’ve been finding yourself having a tough time drawing appropriate boundaries, Venus will send you lessons that push you to address why. Speaking of boundaries, when Saturn begins its five month retrograde in Sagittarius (April 6), your zone of career, fame, and achievement, it’s time to review how you can best push past the boundaries when it comes to achieving your goals. Allow Saturn to help you take a tally of the losses and gains you’ve had up until now. Though instead of getting bummed by what you may see at failures, call on Saturn to help you come back harder, better, faster, stronger (cue Kanye). On April 9, Mercury begins its retrograde in Taurus, your zone of communication, which can help you refine your plans and strategy. Though know that this retrograde means that you’ll need think carefully before speaking, sharing on social media, or sending texts and emails as things could get quickly misconstrued. As a note, also watch out for your cell phone and laptop as either could break down during the retrograde.

On April 11th, a Full Moon Lands in your zone of intimacy and finances which could push you to put an end to a financially or emotionally draining relationship or situation. Since Libra is a sign that believes in fairness, you may find that you’ve had enough of a certain someone not doing their fair share when it comes to your relationship or financial obligations. Use this moon to help you write a new chapter and release whatever has outworn its usefulness. On the 19th, the Sun enters Taurus and your source of light and energy comes through networking, sharing your ideas, and building your skillset. This energy will be especially helpful you in terms of uncovering new opportunities. On April 20, Pluto begins its five month retrograde in Capricorn, your zone of friendship and allies. With the planet of power and control moving backwards here, it may be time for you to come to the realization that when it comes to others, the only person you can control is you. This also goes both ways. Manipulation, undermining, jealousy – these may be some things you’ll have to address within yourself or someone close to you. Also on the 20th, Mercury dips back into Aries and back into your zone of income and possessions. With Mercury here, you may need to keep a watchful eye on your budget and bank statements to make sure everything looks as it should. If you’re in a client based business, this would be an appropriate time to reconnect with old clients for extra cash. Overall, Mercury can help you to get clear about what you want and what you don’t, which means you should avoid settling for something or someone that’s second rate. On the 21st, when Mars enters Gemini, your zone of home and family, you could decide to move or to get busy improving your living space in some way. As Mars can drive up tension, a family argument could be in the works. Use Mars to help you in being proactive about voicing what you feel so that you can move on from the past. On April 26, the New Moon in Taurus can assist you in learning innovative ways to monetize your words, ideas, or skills. Perhaps freelancing could be an option. When Venus enters Aries on the 28th, it’s time to get paid.

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. Additionally, you may also be reevaluating the things you were once passionate about or may have found fun in the past. You seem to have a thirst for something more now and it’ll be your job to go out and find out exactly what that is. On the 9th, Mars moves into Taurus, your zone of health, work, and routine. In tandem to the take charge energy of Aries, it’ll be your turn to take charge of your health and schedule as the same old way that you’ve been doing things won’t work for you anymore. Use Mars to help you reconnect to your kick-ass spirit.

On the subject of work: between Mars in your work zone and the Full Moon in Virgo (March 12th) landing in your career zone, a job change could be in the works. Harness the earthy energy of Taurus and Virgo to help you find opportunities that offer you more stability, more money, and less stress. If you’re self-employed, this Full Moon could show you where you may need to make improvements or fixes to bring your business and your reputation up to the next level. Since this zone also rules fame and recognition, you may receive some for your hard work. On the 13th, Mercury enters Aries and joins Venus retrograde. With Mercury working alongside Venus, this is your chance to get curious again about the world around you and what moves you. By the time Mercury is done you may have found you have a whole new set of interests to keep you up at night researching and learning. Since Venus is retro, you may also decide to revisit a creative project. On the 20th, the Sun enters Aries and the spotlight turns to you once more. If responsible Saturn has caused you to shrink into yourself, look to Aries season to help you find the ferocity and playfulness that you’re known for. Look to the New Moon in Aries on March 27th, to help you start fresh and reboot. On the 31st, Mercury enters Taurus and things get busy quickly. That means it’s time for you to get busy staying on top of it all. What does efficiency look like to you?

Capricorn: Home and family are the focus for most of the month as Venus in Aries goes retrograde (March 4th) in your home zone. With Venus being the planet in charge of love and relationships, your relationships to your family – especially your parents – will come up for review. If boundaries have been an issue or you’ve been unable to forgive them (or one of them) for something that happened in the past, Venus retrograde will help you to work through these challenges. On the subject of forgiveness – often it’s more for your own benefit than theirs. You don’t want (or shouldn’t want) to be tethered to hurt and resentment. In terms of your actual home, Venus retro may have you perusing the market for a brand-new space or rethinking the benefits/cost of your current one. On March 9th, when Mars moves to Taurus (your zone of love, creativity, and adventure), it’s time to come out of the doldrums. Tap into Mars in Taurus to help you get more quality and comfort out of life. Creatively you should find yourself in the zone which means you could produce a true work of art. Since this zone also handles love, expect your love life to yield a few sweet spots. Whether single or not, you can still have a little fun, even if Venus is retro.

Speaking of fun, there’s a Full Moon in Virgo landing in your zone of education, travel, and opportunity on the 12th. Harness this moon to help you try something new, in a new place, with new people. The power of this moon can help you to beat the boring and the blues if you’re up for it. Meanwhile, you may have the opportunity to see your name in print or bring your work to a wider audience, which could look quite impressive on your resume. 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. Don’t worry too much about work at this time, use this period to recharge you batteries and get fussed over for a change. You deserve it. In terms of moving or relocating, the New Moon in Aries on the 27th could be of assistance, just make sure to take your time and weigh your options carefully. Though overall, you can count this moon as big nudge forward as it’s time to release the past. On the 31st, Mercury enters Taurus which signals your cue to get out and get into something interesting.

Aquarius: How you best spend your time, energy, and resources will be the focus for you this month, namely as Venus goes retrograde in Aries, your zone of activity and communication, beginning on March 4th. With Venus being the planet of money and pleasure, you’re not only being asked to rethink what you do for fun but also how you can spend that time on something worthwhile, like making money from a passion project or creative venture. 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. A note about Mars though: in this zone it can also stir up old resentments and disagreements with family. 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. Use this moon to help you come up with a practical plan to achieve financial independence or to say goodbye to a draining, dead-end relationship. 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. If there’s a project that you’ve wanted to launch, like a workshop or a website, look to the weeks after the New Moon in Aries (March 27th) to help you with spreading the word far and wide. In terms of money making ideas, perhaps it may be time to sign up of training or coaching that can help you to level up your skills and marketability. When Mercury enters Taurus on the 31st, you could find yourself signing a new lease or deed. Above all else however, it’s time to get to talking about your feelings. Don’t try to stuff them down.

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. When the New Moon in Aries arrives on March 27th, look to this moon to help you with finding new employment, clients, or other financial opportunities. If you’ve been stuck in poverty consciousness, this moon can help you with removing blockages to abundance. On the 31st, when Mercury enters Taurus, expect to apply the lessons you’ve learned about self-assertion.

February 2017 Horoscopes

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.

This eclipse could also bring you some sort of public recognition or accolades for all of your hard work. Get ready to celebrate your accomplishments! A note: since this eclipse will be landing in one of the more public areas of your chart, make sure that you’re running a tight ship as leaks and loose lips could bring you the kind of attention that you don’t want.

Sagittarius: Do you remember what passion feels like? Well, get ready to find out as this month is all about reconnecting to that fire inside of you. The action begins on February 3rd when Venus moves into Aries, your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. With Venus (the planet of pleasure, wealth, and love) joining passionate Mars in Aries, your love life is about to seriously heat up. Whether you’re single or not, this is where you get back to living in the moment while being adored and worshipped like the supreme being you are. Singles should expect to meet someone bold and opinionated with a zest for life while couples can rekindle the flame by doing new, fun, and interesting activities together. Plus, the sex shouldn’t be half bad for any consenting Sag. One thing to keep in mind is the possibility that new relationships started now may burn out as quickly as they started, though it doesn’t mean that they won’t be fun. Since Venus and Mars will also be in the zone of your chart that also rules creativity and self-expression, you could make money (Venus) by taking a bold leap (Mars) with a talent, craft, or hobby.

Though things may get a little tricky when Jupiter, your ruling planet, begins its four-month retrograde (February 6th) in Libra, your zone of friendship and allies. In astrology, whenever your ruling planet is retrograde (moving backwards) it can make you feel like you’re retrograde too. That’s why in order to alleviate this problem, February will be more about reinforcing and reviewing your friendships and connections as opposed to establishing new ones. If you find that your relationships are not as authentic or supportive as you’d like them to be, Jupiter retrograde will give you the opportunity to address that. Since this zone also has to do with your future plans, hosting Jupiter retrograde here can help you to review them and make revisions and tweaks where necessary. On the 7th, communicative Mercury assists you with this project when it moves to Aquarius, your zone of communication and ideas. With the Sun and Mercury in this zone, your mission will be to soak up as much info as you can to help you get ahead.

On the 10th, an influential Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. Over the next six months that follow this eclipse, you could complete an academic program, get published, change or exit your religion, or get the opportunity to teach abroad. For some Sagittarius, this eclipse could also bring new love, especially through travel or another culture. Since this eclipse contains an auspicious merger between the Sun and Jupiter, utilize this eclipse to help you take a bold step forward in achieving a dream or launching a creative project like a website or class. Since Jupiter will be retrograde, you may want to do a soft launch first. On the 18th when the Sun moves to Pisces, your zone of home and family) you’re asked to draw inward again. At this time your focus may pulled toward the state of your own home or addressing something from the past. When Mercury shifts into Pisces on the 25th, followed by a potent Solar Eclipse on the 26th, you may get the opportunity to manifest your dream home or to establish a better connection to a parent or the women in your life. Releasing one of these people for the sake of your emotional well-being could also be an option. Motherhood or parenting could also be on the horizon. Plan accordingly.

Capricorn: Your home and private life take center stage at the top of the month when Venus enters Aries, your zone of home and family on February 3rd. Since Venus favors pleasure, comfort, and pretty things to look at; this would be an optimal time to redecorate your living space. With Venus joining go-getter Mars in Aries, who just loves using tools, you could embark on a DIY project or renovate a room or space in your home. Hosting Venus in your home zone could also show you the power of using a home upgrade to upgrade your life. You’d be surprised how a fresh coat of paint, funky prints, or rearranging the furniture (as with Feng Shui) can help you to magnetize the kind of life you want. Since this area also covers family, time spent with yours could be a source of joy and support. One caveat though – Mars is known for stirring up arguments, so you’ll have to be mindful of getting into battles with family now. Though if there’s something on your chest that you need to air out, Mars can help you do it.

On February 6th, Jupiter begins its four-month retrograde in Libra, your zone of career, fame, and achievement. While Jupiter is known for bringing fanfare and opportunities, one thing you may need to question yourself on is whether an opportunity or career move you’ve taken is something that resonates with you on a deeper level or if it’s to impress others. As one lesson that you’ve been learning up to this point is that just because it looks good on paper (prestige, money, status), it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s something for you. Where your professional life and values are concerned – are you being true to who you are? Some answers may come in the days that follow February 7th, when Mercury moves into Aquarius and into your zone of self-worth and income. As Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac, it may be time for you to play by your own set of rules and redefine what’s important to you in order for you to magnetize what you desire. If you’ve been looking for a new job or income, Mercury can help introduce you to the right people.

On the 10th, the Lunar Eclipse in Leo lands in your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. Over the six months that follow this eclipse; you could kiss a debt goodbye or work on reducing it, you could break free of a disempowering relationship, or you could make a major investment like purchasing a house. Since this zone of your chart handles death and rebirth, it seems there is an old habit or old way of being that needs to die in order for you to emerge stronger, wiser, and more stable. Consider any crisis that comes up now as necessary to your evolution. On the 18th, the Sun moves into Pisces, your zone of communication and ideas. With the Sun in this zone, expect your schedule to get increasingly busy as you work to keep up with all the words, thoughts, and information coming your way. However, by the time Mercury in Pisces arrives (February 25th), you’ll be in the mood to soak up and discuss as much information as you can. As such a project in writing or media make take up your time. When the Solar Eclipse in Pisces arrives on the 26th, this could be the green light to launch a website or online business, jump into consulting work, garner attention for your work, build your list of contacts, or change your way of thinking.

Aquarius: As your birthday season continues on, this month seems to make up for the dreariness of last month starting with charming Venus’ move into Aries (your zone of communication and ideas) on February 3rd. With Venus joining confident Mars in Aries in this zone, you’re dripping just the right amount of genius, charm, and swagger to get people to hang on to your every word and do your bidding. This means that if there’s a creative project you want to launch or push through or a message you need to get across, Venus and Mars will be working side by side helping you to move the masses. Since Venus is associated with wealth and money, an idea or product you produce now (like a website or a pitch for a magazine article) could bring in some extra cash. Above all else, Aries energy is about finding the courage to take a chance on something that you wouldn’t normally do. If there was a time for thinking outside the box, this is it. One word of caution though: having Mars here could fry your circuits if you don’t pace your workload, schedule, and social media use. Try to take frequent breaks if you can.

On the 6th, expansive Jupiter begins its four-month retrograde in Libra, your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With Jupiter retrograde here you may need to rethink or review a big picture plan that you have in the works or put a trip or school on hold. While this may seem troubling at first, the goal here is to make sure you know what you want and it’s something that you can commit to. Incidentally, since this area of your chart is also connected to religious and moral beliefs, you may be asked to review or reaffirm yours to make sure that what you believe is legit. On February 7th, Mercury moves into Aquarius, your zone of self-confidence and self-image. With Mercury’s help, you should find yourself meeting and greeting tons of new and exciting people which can connect you to new and exciting offers. Similar to Venus in Aries working in your communication zone, Mercury in Aquarius ensure that your words are golden. You could find yourself being extra social and witty which could bring you love or a sweet business deal. If there’s a presentation or a pitch you want to make Mercury will back you up.

Things get really interesting on the 10th, when a Lunar Eclipse in Leo sweeps through your zone of partnership and marriage. Over the six months that follow this eclipse, some Aquarians may end a relationship in lieu of something better, while other Aquarians could kiss the single life goodbye, or get engaged/married. (P.s. if you do get married, try to hold off until the summer as Venus will be in a better place.) Since the area this eclipse is landing in also covers business relationships and clientele, a joint venture could bear fruit, which could lead to more money and a wider customer base. On the 18th, the Sun moves to Pisces, your zone of income, self-worth and possessions. At this time, the spotlight is on your money, honey and doing what you can to ensure your hard work is properly valued. When Mercury moves into Pisces on the 25th, followed by a powerful Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th, you could get the job of your dreams or at the very least make it your mission to release anything that detracts from your self-esteem. Use Mercury to come up with a solution to better save and budget your money.

Pisces: Money and how you make it, spend it, and keep it will be a major focus for you for most of this month.  Though with Venus moving into go-getter Aries (your zone of income and possessions) on the 3rd, coupled with confidence boosting Mars in Aries, you’ll find that attracting the kind of cash you need won’t be as tough as you think. As such, the Universe will pave the way for you to boost or pad your income this month, which could come by way of a new gig (or a second gig) or new income for launching a new product or a service. Since this area of your chart also covers values and self-worth, hosting Venus and Mars here can show you the importance of believing in yourself and being upfront and unapologetic about what you want. For example, if you decide to stay at your current job, asking for a raise won’t seem so daunting. One thing to note however, is that Mars can cause your expenses to rise suddenly or have you spending more money than you’re making. Try to keep an eye on your budget as best as you can and avoid impulse buys if possible.

On the subject of money, Jupiter the planet of luck and abundance begins its four-month retrograde in Libra (February 6th), in your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. With Jupiter going into a bit of a hibernation mode, your job is to review and reassess your debt and financial obligations as well as the power dynamics in your closest relationships. For example, if you share a living space or financial obligations with someone, yet you’re the one paying the bulk of the balance (especially if it’s putting a strain on you), Jupiter retrograde will make sure that you have no choice but to renegotiate the agreement between you and your share of the weight. This goes for any situation in your relationships where you may be giving more than you’re receiving. Libra is all about balance and you’ll have to make sure that you have enough for yourself too. On the 7th, Mercury moves into Aquarius, your zone of rest, retreat, and release. With your birthday coming up, you’ll need the rest and solitude that Mercury in Aquarius will bring in order to clear your psychic cache and prepare for the new chapter you’re embarking on. If your mind gets too busy or anxious, Mercury can help you to find a meditative or journaling practice that can help ease your mind.

On the 10th, an influential Lunar Eclipse in Leo illuminates your zone of health, work, and routine. With an eclipse here you may decide to leave an unproductive or overly demanding job, put an end to a bad habit or addiction, or make the move to take better care of your health. Since Leo is associated with the heart, at this time you may want to visit your doctor and make sure that everything is ok with your cardiovascular system. Overall, you’re being asked to take charge over your life and take better care of what matters to you – yourself included. On the 18th, happy days are here again because it’s the start of your birthday season! The Sun enters Pisces and lights up your zone of confidence and self-image. Having the Sun back home in your sign is like having the Sun shine directly on you and you alone. Your energy, strength, charm, and mojo increase by the thousands. However, because the Universe loves you so, Mercury will also be entering Pisces (February 25th), followed by a magical Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th. Under the influence of this combination, get ready for your moment in the limelight as just about anything you can conjure up can happen. This kind of mojo doesn’t come around often so make sure to use it wisely. Love, money, and happiness are yours for the taking. Happy Birthday!

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.
