The stars are aligning for you this week….
November 22–December 21
Your energy could be a bit low this week, with Mercury and the sun running into restrictive Saturn in Sagittarius and all three of those planets battling dissipating Neptune. Focus on what needs to be done, and ask for help from friends, peers or colleagues when you need it, as teamwork will be effective. You may not feel as enthusiastic as usual, but try not to get down. Making a detailed plan, problem-solving, getting organized and tackling the most essential tasks on your to-do list will give you satisfaction, and you’ll also benefit from extra rest and quiet time alone. Your family, home life or emotional state may be draining or confusing you. If you’re dealing with some personal issues, you might feel like the comfort you need isn’t there for you now. The full moon pushes you to balance your needs with those of someone else, and a relationship might be tested. Wait for the dust to settle before you decide anything. Again, group activities and socializing with friends will be good stress-relievers.
December 22–January 19
Upsets in your family or your emotional state — or at home — could impact your ability to shine this week when Venus in your goals angle faces off against Uranus in your foundation corner. You want to make a favorable impression, but you’ll need to be flexible in how you go about it. Mars is also fueling your ambition and syncing with your ruler Saturn and, if you concentrate on finishing things up rather than starting something new, you’ll be productive. Don’t be surprised if you’re quite tired and need extra sleep and downtime, though. With Mercury and the sun both meeting up with Saturn, you’re apt to dwell on failures and mistakes, and while some contemplation of the past is in order, at some point you must cut your losses. A Saturn-Neptune clash indicates that your thinking is rather muddled and negative, so don’t force communication or decisions. The full moon calls for you to take care of your mind, body and spirit and to bring your inner and outer lives into better balance.
January 20–February 18
A Venus-Uranus opposition suggests you might change your mind about someone you don’t know very well or something could come up in your everyday life that makes it harder for you to enjoy a trip or another experience this week. Keeping an open mind and being adaptable will help. A group adventure may be more successful, as bold Mars is gelling with two planets in your network house. Friends, professional colleagues and people with common interests are very important now, and you need to try to integrate yourself with others — perhaps joining together for a worthy cause or simply supporting one another. Depleted funds, insecurity and unclear values or priorities could affect your ability to contribute to a group, though, when Saturn squabbles with Neptune. Don’t let a fear of lack steer you off course. The full moon gives you an urge to enjoy life, and it could bring a creative project or a romance to fruition or completion. Try to balance personal pleasure with the demands of others as best you can.
February 19–March 20
Closeness and sharing could be challenging this week when Venus opposes Uranus. Finances, self-esteem and changing values or priorities may pose a problem in a relationship, and one of you might need some space. However, diving into a project or your psyche, working with a partner or securing outside resources can help you to accomplish a goal. With Mercury, the sun and Saturn aligning in your ambition angle, you’re focused on what you want to achieve. But those are fighting with Neptune, making it difficult for you to see how your dream will become a reality. You may feel your creativity is being stifled and the necessity of having to work within a system and answer to other people feels onerous. Work on translating your ideals into a game plan. Direct your creative energy along well-thought-out routes. The full moon nudges you to ask yourself what “home” means to you — and then get more of that into your life. You may need to turn your attention to your family, your living situation or your emotional state for a bit.
March 21–April 19
When Venus faces off against Uranus in Aries this week, you may feel the need to reclaim your independence temporarily. Your restlessness can affect a relationship so, rather than pulling away or instigating a conflict, you may want to take a breather. Luckily, your ruler Mars is also in your one-on-one angle, and he’s cooperating with planets in your expansion zone, hinting that a shared adventure, trip or learning experience will be beneficial, as will making plans for the future with someone close to you. A planetary gathering involving the sun, Mercury and Saturn suggests that you’re striving to broaden your mind and working hard to understand something. And you may be constructing a philosophy upon which you can base your future. But these planets are sparring with Neptune in your subliminal sector, causing melancholy, uncertainty or emptiness to eat away at you, and you may not be sure what you believe right now. The full moon could overwhelm you with information, communication and busyness; remember that as a student of life, you needn’t have all the answers.
April 20–May 20
Pay attention to what’s going on in the back of your mind this week, when disruptive Uranus in your subliminal zone gives pleasant Venus in your productivity sector a hard time. Notice what you might be doing to subvert yourself, and take a break if you need time alone with your thoughts. Mars is also in your productivity sector, and he’s teaming up with Saturn and Mercury, providing opportunities for you to focus and work intensively on something; join forces with a partner; have a fruitful discussion; or perhaps deal with something touchy like trust or joint finances. A planetary gathering in your depth-and-sharing house emphasizes the importance of mastering the inner workings of relationships. And with those planets locked in battle with Neptune in your network corner now, connecting with others probably seems quite confusing and complex. Combining your interests, values, resources, desires and needs with someone else’s is tricky. The full moon pushes you to keep getting better at give-and-take — and it also puts you on high alert for emotional spending.
May 21–June 20
You may have trouble getting people to do what you want to do this week, and you need to keep giving them the same freedom that you want for yourself. Close relationships are a different story, with Mercury, Saturn and the sun piling up in your one-on-one angle. Although it might feel weightier than you’d like, make the effort to connect with a partner or good friend. You probably feel tested by others lately, and relationships have become a sort of proving ground. If you’ve been avoiding a big talk — especially one that aims to define a relationship more clearly — it’s likely to come up now. You may be confused about the direction your life is headed in, but try not to project a sense of authority onto someone else. Work on being a mature friend and mate who can handle being held accountable. The Gemini full moon could spell emotional overload, and you should try to assert your needs without having a meltdown. Respect other people’s wishes, and do your own thing if you can’t compromise.
June 21–July 22
Your career, an authority figure or a goal could interfere with your enjoyment of family and home this week when Venus in your domestic angle opposes Uranus in your ambition zone, so you may need to juggle. Several planets are clustered in your efficiency house now, prompting you to work hard and fulfill your duties. This is a good time for doing detailed thinking, getting organized and making a plan to improve your health, professional life, schedule, skills and habits. Try to prioritize rather than spreading yourself too thin, because you may not have the energy to tackle everything on your plate. Those planets are fighting with Neptune in your vision sector at the moment, so the responsibilities and limitations of your daily life can obscure your outlook, and you may be uncertain about the future. You might feel too bogged down by reality to dream. The full moon in your spirit corner nudges you to pay attention to your emotions and intuition, get more rest and release your worries.
July 23–August 22
A planetary conference in your fulfillment house this week emphasizes creativity, fun, love, humor, pleasure and happiness. But with Saturn in the mix, you may not feel especially lighthearted. If you’re constructing a new identity for yourself or working on getting more out of life, such pursuits are probably preoccupying you. Self-actualization is very important to you lately. Fortunately, Mars in your communication zone is connecting with Saturn and Mercury, helping you to express yourself with gravitas. With your ruling planet the sun conjoining Saturn now, you’re taking yourself seriously. But thanks to Neptune’s presence in your depth sector, you may be confused about closeness, sex, sharing or a mystery in your own psyche — and a loss, death or crisis may have drained you. It’s easy to misunderstand a relationship during this period, and you might mistake an affair or flirtation for a profound connection. The full moon pushes you to attend to group interests or a friend’s needs, and it could spell a turning point with a particular affiliation.
August 23–September 22
Possessiveness could be a problem this week when Venus in your worth house opposes Uranus in your sharing sector, and you might need to give someone space. Mars’s link with Saturn in your foundation angle implies that organizing possessions or using the tools you have at your disposal to improve a domestic or family situation will prove worthwhile. With several planets gathering together at the bottom of your chart, you’re focused on home life, relatives, memories, family patterns and private emotions. A serious talk with a parent is a strong possibility and, although you may feel criticized or fenced in, this can be a building block for your growth. Those planets also happen to be quarreling with Neptune in your relationship angle, so your efforts to feel grounded and secure may be thwarted by others’ unreliability, dependence, deception or vagueness. The full moon in your ambition angle could signify a turning point with a goal or your career. If you’re pushed into the spotlight, don’t shy away.
September 23–October 22
This week’s opposition between Venus in Libra and Uranus in your one-on-one angle could create friction in your relationships, as you’ll be inclined to connect with people and they may not be there for you in the way that you want them to be. Give others some leeway, and your interactions won’t feel so one-sided. Luckily, Mars is vibing with planets in your cognition-and-communication sector, allowing you to think through your actions and assert yourself in a measured manner. With Mercury, Saturn and the sun in that house, your mind and your daily life are quite busy. Saturn’s influence could give you a glass-half-empty outlook, though. Pay attention to the way you’re thinking, and recognize that your perception is not reality; it’s the lens through which you view reality. Those planets are feuding with murky Neptune now, so you could be trying to nail down your purpose and yearning to feel useful, productive and whole. The full moon might bring a revelation, an adventure or philosophical shift, and you’re apt to take action based on faith.
October 23–November 21
Your enjoyment of downtime could be interrupted this week when something unexpected arises in your daily life, thanks to a Venus-Uranus faceoff, and you’ll need to balance inner and outer needs. Working behind the scenes or without credit can benefit your finances, and confronting something in your psyche — such as a self-sabotaging behavior pattern — can strengthen your self-confidence. That’s because Mars in your solitude-and-subconscious zone is gelling with planets in your worth house. Mercury, Saturn and the sun are all coming together in that house now, compelling you to focus on money, possessions, priorities, values and self-esteem. You’re probably concerned by a lack of these things, and you may feel cut off from the flow of abundance in the universe. With all of these planets squabbling with Neptune in your fulfillment sector, such worries are bumping up against your ideal vision of a happy life filled with love, creativity and fun. Don’t give in to despair. The full moon reminds you to balance give and take, and it prompts an internal transformation connected with sharing.
