Horoscopes by Tracy Allen.
November 22–December 21
In addition to your actual birthday, the new moon in Sagittarius this week marks the beginning of a new year for your sign. The moon is in sync with liberating Uranus in your fulfillment sector but out of sync with nostalgic Neptune in your emotions angle, hinting that breaking free from the past to launch a new chapter in your life can be both exhilarating and a touch bittersweet, even for ready-and-willing Sagittarians. Romance, creativity, and play feed renewal, so express yourself freely to affirm your positivity, mentally releasing anything that is blocking your happiness. With communicative Mercury entering your sign, you’re increasingly inclined to speak your mind and share your enthusiasm, although Mercury’s encounter with fuzzy Neptune could temporarily cloud your judgment. Active Mars lands in your groups-and-objectives house at the end of the week, where he’ll stay until next July. Get ready to direct your energy toward teamwork, friendship, philanthropy, and new goals.
December 22–January 19
A new moon in your metaphysical zone harmonizes with freeing Uranus in your roots angle this week. Getting perspective on your past and letting go of emotional baggage, painful memories, and family patterns that restrict your growth will help you find inner peace. Resolve to wrap up unfinished business, begin a new spiritual practice, honor your intuition, tend to the needs of soul, give your imagination room to play, and push past your fear of the unknown, embracing the tremendous mystery of life. Creative vision and gut instincts are favored now, with mental Mercury moving into your subconscious sector and tangling with foggy Neptune in your logic zone. At the end of the week, go-getter Mars crosses into your public-position house, a part of the chart that’s a natural fit for goal-oriented Capricorns, as you tend to gain satisfaction from appreciable accomplishments. Coming up: nearly eight months of pursuing success.
January 20–February 18
The new moon lands in your hopes-and-humanity house this week – the part of the chart that Aquarius naturally rules – and clicks with your ruling planet Uranus in your cognition sector. Friendships, affiliations with groups, professional networking, philanthropy, setting new goals in light of what you’ve already achieved, and striving to contribute something meaningful to the world all fuel progressive thinking (and vice versa). Foggy Neptune in your worth sector has the potential to derail progress, forming a harsh angle to the moon and making financial uncertainty or wavering confidence a factor. Shake these insecurities and focus on the positive, as mental Mercury follows the new moon into this house where your sign thrives. Abstract thinking and imagination are stronger at the moment than logic. At the end of the week, energetic Mars moves into your journeys-and-beliefs zone, firing you up for almost eight months of learning, travel, active truth-seeking, and advocating for justice.
February 19–March 20
You can breathe new life into your goals this week, thanks to a new moon in your career angle linking up with progressive Uranus. The moon’s confusing encounter with Neptune in Pisces means you may not be too sure what direction you’re headed in or you may feel weary at the thought of making another push for success. But openness to original ideas, rethinking ways of making money, activating neglected talents, and shirking off an outdated self-image that hinders you are all ways of moving forward. Mercury clicks with doer Mars in your partnership angle before ascending to the top of your chart, so working in tandem with someone may inspire you, giving you the impetus to focus mentally on your objectives. Don’t let Mercury’s run-in with Neptune lure you into pie-in-the-sky thinking, though. With Mars entering your transformation house now, the way you go after what you want may be due for a change.
March 21–April 19
The new moon in your vision house clicks with change-loving Uranus in your sign, encouraging you to look at life from a new angle as a means of sparking personal progress. The moon tangles with vulnerable Neptune in your subconscious sector as well, adding a note of yearning or disenchantment. You’re looking to the future, but also need to make peace with something from the past, perhaps letting go of a source of pain. Fortunately your insight into your own psyche is sharp now, and smart Mercury’s collaboration with your ruler Mars may point you to the most useful next step. Mercury’s move into your expansion zone lifts your spirits and gets you thinking about spreading your wings a little further. At the end of the week, Mars crosses your relationship angle, kicking off a nearly eight-month period in which interpersonal connections will get much of your attention.
April 20–May 20
A greater degree of closeness in relationships and a deeper understanding of your psyche’s inner workings are both kick-started by the new moon in your intimacy house this week. The moon clicks with revelatory Uranus in your subconscious zone and clashes with unfathomable Neptune in your group sector. So self-awareness will be a boon to your closest connections and your relationship with yourself, whereas vulnerability and a gnawing need to find an organic fit with people may complicate closeness. Communicative Mercury’s sync-up with assertive Mars encourages you to express your feelings, be your authentic self, and do what makes you happy. Mercury’s move into your hidden-matters house will help your mind penetrate to the heart of something if you’re willing to leap into the void and face what you find there. With Mars entering your efficiency sector for an extended stay, get ready to become very busy and productive.
May 21–June 20
With a new moon landing in your relationship angle this week, the planets are prompting you to make new connections or take a current one to the next level. The moon is clicking with capricious Uranus in your network sector, so you may unexpectedly meet someone important through your circle of contacts or form a new bond through your group of friends. The discord between vague Neptune in your goals house and this new moon could create some confusion around relationships, and letting go of preconceptions and expectations will help. Your ruler Mercury has the same trouble with Neptune a few days later, making communication difficult, especially if you have a personal agenda. You could over promise, get your facts wrong, or feel disillusioned. But before that happens, Mercury’s meet-up with straightforward Mars pushes you to think things through methodically and be ready to back up words with responsible actions. Mars proceeds into your personal-fulfillment sector at the end of the week, where he’ll hang until next summer. The next several months will give you a chance to pursue creative projects and romance with plenty of passion.
June 21–July 22
Your ruling planet the moon aligns with the sun in your methods-and-competence house this week, forming a new moon and signaling the start of a new cycle. The moon’s positive meeting with change-maker Uranus in your ambition angle points to the connection between stepping up your skill set and making progress with goals. Resolve to get organized, work hard, try innovative techniques, make great use of your time, take on new tasks, and approach problems from a fresh angle. It’s easy to get a little lost imagining how much you can accomplish, because chimerical Neptune in your vision sector is in conflict with the moon. But sticking to a systematic thought process and putting action steps in writing should keep you on track. Just-do-it Mars lands in your memories zone at the end of the week, setting up camp there until July 2014, during which time you can actively unpack emotional baggage.
July 23–August 22
Your enthusiasm for getting maximum enjoyment out of life is sparked by your ruling planet the sun’s conjunction with the moon this week. Romance, humor, creativity, play, children, free expression of emotion – all of these are reinvigorated not only by this new moon, but by the moon’s connection with liberating Uranus in your outlook house. An open-minded perspective and a willingness to be surprised will open the door to new experiences and personal happiness. However, a longing for intimacy or a fear of the dark corners in your psyche may throw you off, or someone close to you may misread your mood and intentions. Verbal Mercury’s hookup with to-the-point Mars can help you to convey your feelings, especially if you align your actions and your words. Mars moves into your cognition-and-communication sector over the weekend, getting ready for a long stay there. During the next several months, your speech will grow more assertive as your mindset becomes increasingly empowered.
August 23–September 22
Launch a domestic project, renew a familial relationship, and break free from limiting emotional patterns when the new moon rises in your foundation angle and syncs with forward-looking Uranus. The moon’s discord with sensitive Neptune suggests that someone may not understand where you’re coming from, and this could create vulnerability or disappointment between the two of you. But with your ruler Mercury in your talk sector working well with action-oriented Mars in your sign, you can smooth things over by aligning your intentions, your behavior, and your words in a forthright manner. If you don’t understand your own feelings, however, it won’t be as easy to make yourself understood to others. Mars leaves your sign at the end of the week and settles in for an extended stay in your worth zone. For the next seven and a half months, you’ll be working on your finances – and possibly your self-esteem as well.
September 23–October 22
You may change your mind about something – possibly due to the influence of someone close to you – when a new moon lands in your attitude sector and clicks with revelatory Uranus in your relationship angle this week. Or the shift in your mindset may unfold over a longer stretch of time and come about of your own volition. In any case, new thinking is highly encouraged going forward, even if you’re unclear on how the reality of your daily life will be affected. Being curious about your environment and the people in it will lead you to new discoveries and perhaps new relationships also. With mental Mercury following the new moon into your thoughts house, your brain will get even busier in the next few weeks. But the big news is that catalyst Mars is entering your sign at the end of the week for a nearly eight-month stay. Get ready to take the initiative more, increase your physical activity, and work hard to promote your interests.
October 23–November 21
The new moon in your worth zone dovetails with change-loving Uranus in your job-and-routine sector this week, drawing a connection between these two areas of life. How does your self-image influence your work? Are you drawing from your entire array of talents to construct a life purpose? Do your work methods make you feel better or worse about yourself? Are your financial goals aligned with how you spend your time? Ethereal Neptune in your personal-fulfillment house quarrels with the moon, making it harder to envision what role creativity and happiness will play in all of this. Work around that question mark for now, because intelligent Mercury in your sign is cooperating with assertive Mars, helping you speak your mind and match actions to thoughts. With Mercury subsequently entering your values sector, your brain begins to prioritize. Then Mars moves into your chart’s last house, initiating an extended period of working behind the scenes, pursuing spiritual growth, tying up loose ends, and confronting your subconscious.
