May 21–June 20
You’ll feel like socializing early in the week when chatty Mercury in Gemini gels with friendly Venus in your group zone. The new moon in your sign gives you a reason to celebrate and hints that you’re due for a personal reinvention. Given the harmony between the moon and assertive Mars in your self-expression house, it’s clear that the planets want you to become more comfortable in your own skin and share your whole unique self. Let go of a false persona, and accept that you’re not entirely certain what mark you will make in the world. Your path may be shrouded in mist for now, so focus on knowing who you are, what you need and what you’re capable of creating. Look at your birthday season as a time of renewal.
June 21–July 22
A new moon in the last house of your chart this week coaxes you to release failures and disappointments from the past year and let of whatever or whomever needs to leave your life in order for you to continue to grow. It also encourages you to seek peace and quiet to recharge your batteries. This would be the perfect week to begin a new spiritual practice or soul-soothing habit. The moon’s connections with Mars and Neptune nudge you to take time out to reflect on the past and face difficult emotions and fears about the future. With Venus entering your group sector, you’ll also want to get out and be around people to boost your mood. And when Mercury lands in Cancer, you’ll find it easier to express yourself to others.
July 23–August 22
The sun aligns with the moon in your hopes-and-humanity sector this week, forming a new moon. The harmony between Mars and this lunation indicates that bold thinking and assertive communication on your part can fuel new objectives, a different social role, fresh professional contacts and philanthropic work. Confusion or disillusionment over sharing, trust and receiving help from others may make you wary of cooperative efforts, but they can also push you to think in broader terms instead of focusing on one person and one disappointment. A new friendship or a new form of teamwork could be coming. With Venus climbing to the top of your chart, your attention is drawn to professional goals, and work life should become more pleasant. As Mercury sneaks into your subliminal zone, listen to your intuition more.
August 23–September 22
If you need to request financial assistance to meet a professional objective, this might be a good time, with verbal Mercury in your ambition angle syncing with law-of-attraction Venus in your outside-resources zone. However, the new moon—also in your ambition angle—puts a slightly different spin on things. The moon is clicking with motivated Mars in your finance house and clashing with murky Neptune in your partnership angle, implying that your own hard work is the key to changing your income and you may not be able to rely on others to further your career. Set goals that are rooted in self-sufficiency now. With Venus and Mercury changing signs, your desire for learning, freedom, travel and new experiences heightens and your social life picks up.
September 23–October 22
Thanks to Mercury in your exploration zone bonding with Venus in your relationship angle, this week could bring an opportunity involving travel, meeting someone new or learning about the world through another person. The new moon lands in your exploration zone as well and harmonizes with doer Mars in Libra, so it’s up to you to act. Let restlessness coax you out of your comfort zone and into a new adventure, a different perspective, an unfamiliar experience, a foreign land or a fresh course of study. Neptune’s clash with the moon implies that the drain of the daily grind will either discourage you or motivate you. Your ruler Venus sashays into your intimacy sector mid-week, reminding you to value the bonds of trust that you share with those closest to you.
October 23–November 21
This week’s new moon falls in the house of your chart that concerns Scorpio-related matters such as trust, sharing, sex, closeness, the psyche, research, healing, transformation joint-resources and money you get through others. Which of these could use a jump-start? The moon is clicking with proactive Mars, indicating that there’s something you can do to begin anew in one or more of these areas. Remember that Mars is still in your subliminal sector, so cleaning out subconscious debris like a self-defeating behavior pattern is essential. As a side note, you’re in danger of romanticizing intimacy or taking a foolish financial gamble now—steer clear of those potential bumps. With Venus and Mercury on the move, your one-on-one interactions grow more pleasant and your thoughts turn to spreading your wings.
November 22–December 21
Forming new relationships and redefining current ones are favored in the coming weeks, with a new moon landing in your others angle. You’re pushed to become more aware of your rapport with people, what they need from you and who you are in your relationships. The moon’s connection with Mars in your group zone suggests that doing things with people who share your interests or goals will lead you to find an affirming role. You’re also apt to meet someone new and significant through group activities. Neptune hints that private emotional changes will factor into the shift in your relationships. Venus enters your productivity sector this week, making your job or daily routine more enjoyable. And Mercury’s move helps you with research, an intimate conversation or psychological insight.
December 22–January 19
A new moon in your efficiency house this week stresses the need to revitalize your health, your work and your routine. This would be a great time to get on a different schedule, begin a new workout regimen, change your diet, ditch a negative habit and start a positive one, get more organized, tackle detailed tasks or find a different way of doing your job, solving problems and being useful. The moon is in sync with just-do-it Mars in your goals angle, making it clear that if you back up your intentions with sensible action, you can achieve your aims. Neptune’s involvement, however, suggests that fuzzy communication or thinking can pose a challenge. Venus and Mercury are moving into your pleasure and relationship houses now, upping your ability to enjoy life and express yourself.
January 20–February 18
When the new moon shows up in your fulfillment sector this week, it serves as a reminder of the need for pleasure. In the coming weeks, a fresh creative endeavor, a new romance or a different source of joy could emerge. Wake up your sense of humor. Tell your quirks it’s safe to come out. Carve out more playtime. Express what’s in your heart. Invite more love into your life. The moon-Mars bond tells you that striving to expand your horizons is a key component. You need to venture beyond familiar territory and old beliefs. But Neptune is also in the mix, hinting you may use lack of funds as an excuse for lack of pleasure. Or low confidence might hold love, joy and self-expression at bay. It’s in your power not to let that happen.
February 19–March 20
Neptune in your sign quarrels with the new moon this week, so you’ll have to get past hopelessness, passivity, a victim mentality, escapism or lethargy in order to reap the benefits that this lunation offers. It’s drawing your attention to home, family, comfort, private feelings, memories, ancestry, childhood emotional patterning and safety. A shift in one or more of these areas is likely to occur in the coming weeks, and you have a chance to align your intentions with revitalization here. The harmonious angle between Mars and the moon indicates that confronting issues in your psyche or electing to trust someone will reinforce a sense of renewal. Think about what you need to feel secure, to feel like yourself, to feel at ease, to feel at home. What change will strengthen your foundation?
March 21–April 19
Communication is key for Rams this week. First Mercury in your talk zone connects with Venus in your sign, then the new moon lands in that house and clicks with Mars. You’re apt to have a silver tongue, so be open about what you want. The moon calls your attention to what you need to say and what you need to learn, and it hints that interactions with people in your environment in the coming weeks will be productive and informative. So fight a yearning to disappear, and maintain contact with others. As Mercury moves into your home angle, being in touch with family—or people who feel like family—may become a bigger priority. And as Venus segues into your worth sector, you’re encouraged to savor what you have.
April 20–May 20
A willingness to forgo something will bolster your financial judgment when mental Mercury in your worth house syncs with covetous Venus in your release sector this week. The new moon heightens your awareness of personal values, needs and self-esteem—and this could manifest in the coming weeks as a new source of income (or increased income) based on hard work and letting go of an old goal or group expectations. Get clear on your priorities and your belief in yourself, and resolve to do everything you can to ensure your own security. With Venus dancing into Taurus, you’ll be able to make a positive impression on people and attract more of what you want, so start thinking about what’s most important to draw in.
