Horoscopes by Tracy Allen.
November 22–December 21
Chatty Mercury and social Venus enter your gregarious sign this week, while a new moon in Sagittarius connects with your ruler, Jupiter, in your relationship angle. With all this Sag energy in the air, don’t be surprised if you can’t get a moment alone. You’ll feel like you’re clicking well with most people now, although hazy Neptune in your roots sector could trigger some confusing emotions or a misunderstanding on the home front. You may find it easier to express yourself in a playful, lighthearted way or through a creative endeavor, rather than trying to have a serious talk. The new moon gives you permission to make your New Year’s resolutions now and to mold them to your needs. Make a list that feeds your soul, and remember to factor collaboration into your goals. You’re learning a great deal from other people now and growing more through relationships than solo.
December 22–January 19
Your intuition kicks in this week as thinker Mercury darts into your subconscious sector, followed by the sensitive new moon and esteemed Venus. A few gut instincts may be at odds with each other or with your logical thought, in which case you probably won’t know what hunch to go with. Just take it all in and file it away for future action—the subconscious sector is also the house of seclusion, so you need more than your usual amount of downtime. Ginormous Jupiter in your tasks zone means you’ve got a lot of work and a long to-do list, and Jupiter’s opposition to the new moon points out the need for balance. Think about tweaks you can make to your home or your habits that will make life more restful and soothing for you. You need time alone to process the emotional insights that are flooding your brain. Withdrawing from the world should be built into your routine now.
January 20–February 18
With three planets moving into your group zone this week—including a new moon—you Aquarians will be in your element. You’ll want to be around a lot of people, which is not unusual for you at all. There could be a bewildering episode with friends over values or money, but friends are the key to your week, so let it pass. The new moon calls for you to form new ties to a social circle and to organizations connected with your goals. Try to balance what you need from your affiliations against your expectations of individualism and self-expression. Rethink what you require from people you associate with. Ask yourself which friends make you feel comfortable and secure, and vow to prioritize healthy attachments. Your mind will start moving more quickly with Uranus’s current direct turn, so clear-sightedness regarding how to get more out of your relationships may follow.
February 19–March 20
Mental Mercury’s entry into your career angle gets you thinking more about your work, while Venus’s appearance there adds the element of desire. What do you want to do and how can you make it happen? A new moon in enthusiastic Sagittarius makes contact with hopeful Jupiter in your foundation house, galvanizing you to start a new chapter in your professional life rooted in the belief that you’ve built a strong base—either at home or in your inner, emotional life or both. Having Neptune, your ruling planet, in your sign has infused you with vision but may also have overwhelmed you with dreams that you don’t know how to concretize. This week, try to think in terms of what you most want to attain, what resources you need in order to feel like you can succeed and what you want your public status to be. Your self-image is freeing up now, and that should inform fresh thoughts about what type of achievement is important to you personally.
March 21–April 19
As pondering Mercury and desirous Venus enter your expansion sector this week, your inspiration to aim higher builds. When a new moon in that sector is challenged by profuse Jupiter, it injects you with a fresh dose of motivation. And rounding out the trifecta: Revolutionary Uranus goes direct in your sign, filling your head with the possibility of change. Idealistic thinking reenergizes you, and yet uncertainty over the transition you’ve been mired in lingers. The pitfall now is grabbing onto the next big thing and charging full-throttle towards a dubious target just to get unstuck. You’re fired up, but you need to home in on your true quest. Aries are at their best when their enviable gift for action is underpinned by the courage of their convictions. What action and change do you believe in most strongly now?
April 20–May 20
The eighth house in your chart is about delving into mysteries, not knowing what you’re going to find. It rules sex, death, spying, psychology and countless other covert subjects. Things that we tend to hide or look away from need to be dealt with eventually, and in this house, we face the dark, off-limits stuff. Thoughtful Mercury and warm Venus enter your eighth house this week, and a new moon rises there, encountering Jupiter—ruler of faith—in your values zone. The planets are signaling that it’s time to poke around in the dark and bring whatever you find there into the light. Soothe any wounds that surface, and resolve to begin anew in this locked-off area of yourself. Such a resolution must be supported by a core belief in your own worth. You’ve been feeling disillusioned with people or perhaps confused about where you fit in, but your instincts are waking up and pointing you in a direction of healing and belonging.
May 21–June 20
As your ruler, Mercury, crosses your relationship angle this week, followed by the new moon and Venus, that’s your cue to revisit partnership issues. Think hard about what you need from others and what they need from you—and where these exchanges may have gotten out of hand. If you’ve been overly focused on where people dovetail with your ambitions, disillusionment probably ensued. Your dreams and their dreams are not necessarily one and the same. But if you start from your common goals and embrace the spirit of teamwork, you may be able to see more clearly now that there’s a new way of moving forward in alliance.
June 21–July 22
Four planets in your house of details this week—including your ruler, the moon—spells much fine-tuning. Pay close attention to the little things in your work, your health and your habits and see what needs modifying. A new moon equals a fresh start, so this is a chance to get serious about necessary changes that will affect the coming year. But with disproportionate Jupiter in your subconscious zone opposing the moon, the danger is that too-high or too-low expectations will influence your judgment. Avoid all-or-nothing thinking by breaking things down into elements and analyzing them. Craft a plan with critical thinking, but make sure not to take the criticism thing too far either. Foggy Neptune in your future sector makes it hard to see exactly where you’re headed, which is why this week’s attention to detail is especially challenging and rewarding.
July 23–August 22
A new moon in your self-expression house gives you a green light to “do you” in the coming year. And it’s not like it’s indulging you. The moon is connecting with beneficent Jupiter in your humanity sector, underscoring the importance of your personal contribution to the greater good. Commit to telling your story, to bringing what’s in your heart to full flower, to offering up your uniqueness in a way that will have a positive impact on others and maybe even make the world a better place. Find a means of doing you that transcends egocentrism and conforms to higher ideals. A deep-rooted yearning—thanks to utopian Neptune in your transformation zone—is urging you on, though you may not understand yet precisely where it’s leading you.
August 23–September 22
Your ruling planet, Mercury, makes its way into your foundation angle this week, and a new moon and Venus follow suit. With these planets situated at the bottom of your chart, you may find yourself awash in memories, expressing your innermost feelings and connecting with family. It’s possible that you’ll just be in the mood now to spend more time at home, decorating for the holidays and escaping from shopping mayhem. Murky Neptune in your others sector could mean you encounter confusion in a relationship or feel disappointed in people, but don’t let that dominate your week. The new moon offers you a chance to start over from the ground up. Ask yourself what you need to feel secure enough to strive for a goal that feels just out of reach. This is the time to convince yourself deep down that you can make great strides this year. You can feel yourself changing, even if others can’t see it yet.
September 23–October 22
Three planets enter your communication-and-community house this week, promising a busy time full of socializing. Reach out to siblings and neighbors and try to take pleasure in all the running around, even if it’s just seeing people you know while you’re out doing errands. With so much planetary activity in this part of your chart, the hustle and bustle associated with holiday preparations could be surprisingly enjoyable. You’re apt to feel like you’re clicking in conversations, but coworkers may prove the exception. Reconnecting with a friend or significant other who’s been unpredictable is another potential bright spot in your week. But on a deeper level, this is a time for you to realize that you have an emotional need for a revitalized mindset that’s based on your expanding beliefs.
October 23–November 21
Planetary activity in your house of resources this week gets you thinking about your earning potential, not to mention your overall potential. If you underestimate yourself in general, that’s likely to be reflected in your fiscal affairs. The new moon is telling you that it’s time to build up your self-esteem, and consequently, your assets. Generous Jupiter’s opposition to the moon suggests that your expectations around joint finances or outside sources of funding may be in conflict with your feelings about financial independence. And you could also be unclear about how to blend pleasure and finances. Maybe you think curtailing your spending will deplete your joy. Or perhaps it’s hard for you to see how you can make money in a way that also brings you happiness. Focus on what you need to do in order to keep heading in the right direction. How can you better use your talents ,and thus boost both your confidence and your bank account? Change-loving Uranus is going direct in your work-and-routine sector, so look for small critical adjustments that you can make in those areas.
