What do the stars have in store this week? There’s only one way to find out…
December 22–January 19
The sun’s arrival in Capricorn this week increases your vitality and heralds the beginning of your birthday season. In the coming weeks, you’re encouraged to focus on yourself and project your personality with vigor. This is a prime period for making an impression on others. And thanks to a collaboration between Mercury in your sign and Jupiter in your outlook house, you’re able to express your views in convincing fashion. More importantly, you can gain knowledge, perspective and understanding now. An open mind is crucial to this process; assuming that you already have all the answers will stunt your growth. The full moon in your relationship angle is harmonizing with Neptune in your cognition-and-communication sector, drawing your attention to the emotions and needs of others and coaxing you to convey compassion and empathy. Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and compromising will make both of you feel better. Happy birthday!
January 20–February 18
With the sun sneaking into your solitude sector this week, you may find that your energy is flagging and you need more rest. The calendar year is drawing to a close, and your solar year is wrapping up as well—meaning your birthday season is just around the corner. In the coming weeks, seek peace and quiet to reflect and recharge your battery. The full moon may force you to attend to matters in the outside world, though. A busy schedule, health issue or long to-do list could overwhelm you, and you need to be willing to shuffle your priorities. Feeling useful and being of service to others can replenish your spirit. A Mercury-Jupiter confab encourages you to try to understand yourself better and to trust someone enough to confide in them. With Uranus turning direct, anxiety and impatience could get the best of you. Resist jumping to conclusions and making hasty decisions.
February 19–March 20
After the sun shows up in your network house this week, you’ll be more inclined to socialize and focus on the various groups you belong to. Being around people who share your interests, goals and ideals will inspire you. This is a good time to turn your attention to new objectives that you’d like to achieve in the coming year. With Mercury also in your network house and vibing with Jupiter in your one-on-one angle, relationships are apt to be mutually beneficial. Communication with friends will run smoothly, and a new acquaintance may end up contributing something to your life down the road. If you need any kind of help, you should definitely reach out to people now. The full moon is syncing with Neptune, prompting you to let loose and enjoy life. Creativity, romance and self-expression are emphasized, and if something ends now, it will ultimately be for the best.
March 21–April 19
The sun ascends to your ambition angle this week, signaling that it’s your time to shine in your profession or in public. In the coming weeks, turn your attention to your reputation, your career status or your life direction and consider the progress you’ve made thus far. You may be pushed into the spotlight and called to perform in some way, and awareness of your capabilities will be a plus. Mercury is in this house as well and cooperating with Jupiter in your efficiency sector, facilitating career planning, communication with authority figures, fulfilling intellectual work and learning new skills. The full moon could indicate an emotional shift, a family development or relocation. TLC and time at home will soothe your soul. But with Uranus going direct in Aries, you may not be inclined to slow down. Avoid springing into ill-advised action to relieve inner tension; rather, find a healthy outlet like exercise.
April 20–May 20
The sun moves into your exploration zone this week, inspiring you to broaden your horizons through learning, travel and new experiences. If you’re unable to take a trip, break out of your everyday routine however you can. Even talking to unfamiliar people who introduce a fresh viewpoint or reveal a different aspect of the world to you will be fruitful. Mercury is in that house as well, and it’s meshing with Jupiter this week, alluding to fulfilling experiences related to journeys, conversations and optimistic thinking. And with your ruler Venus also in the mix, love, affection and romance are favored—as is creative self-expression. You’re especially likely to fall for a person who seems foreign to you in some way. The full moon could speed up the tempo of daily life and make your mind more active or bring sibling drama. Hanging with friends will be a great stress reliever.
May 21–June 20
As the sun begins its annual visit to your hidden-matters sector this week, your focus shifts to what’s going on inside you and between you and another person. This can be a favorable period for examining your own psyche and healing a wound—or for concentrating on what it takes to make a relationship work and mastering the art of give-and-take. A meeting between Mercury and Jupiter in your foundation angle facilitates communication with family, and if you need their support, you’re likely to get it. It’s also a good time for reflecting on the past and seeking inner peace. Home life and time with relatives can enhance your sense of belonging and security. The full moon in your worth corner could bring a change in earnings or a burst of confidence or spending. Avoid possessiveness and excessive concern with your own needs. Shifting your goals can strengthen your self-sufficiency.
June 21–July 22
The sun crosses your one-on-one angle this week, beckoning you to concentrate on close relationships and your interactions with others. In the coming weeks, you can learn about yourself through your encounters with people and your efforts to relate and compromise. Mercury is gelling with Jupiter in your communication sector, further highlighting the importance of connecting with individuals. You should be able to express your beliefs and opinions and if you keep an open mind, dialogues will be mutually enlightening and beneficial. Seek feedback and different perspectives to increase your knowledge and understanding. The full moon in Cancer is clicking with Neptune in your outlook zone—another indication that you should focus on the big picture and release limiting beliefs. A spiritual frame of mind and a feeling of unity with other living beings will help if you’re extra emotional. Express your needs, and shift your priorities if you feel overwhelmed.
July 23–August 22
After your ruler the sun arrives in your efficiency corner this week, your focus begins to shift from playing to working. In the coming weeks, productivity and health become all important. Whether you’re crossing things off your to-do list, meeting your obligations, being useful, taking on more responsibility, eating well or keeping fit, you’ll want to feel like you’re taking care of business. A Mercury-Jupiter meeting will help you to think through what you need to do and maximize your resources. A strong sense of your priorities and self-worth can lead to purposeful planning. Generosity and attention to detail will be a winning combination. The full moon in the last house of your chart could trigger a need for alone time, rest and reflection. You’re called to balance your inner and outer lives and reminded that besides working hard and serving others, you must also feed your spirit.
August 23–September 22
The sun’s arrival in your pleasure house signals it’s time to lighten up and start enjoying life more. Fun, self-expression, romance, creativity, humor and happiness are emphasized in the coming weeks. Mercury is also in that house, and its encounter with Jupiter will help you to learn more about yourself and communicate your beliefs. Your personal growth process can translate to a creative breakthrough or an expression of fondness or joy. Let the world know who you’re becoming and what holds meaning for you. Venus in your thinking-and-talking sector is vibing with Jupiter too, giving you additional opportunities to show you care and to experience love and beauty. The full moon could spell drama with friends, and you’re reminded to have empathy for others and honor their needs as well as your own. If you need to release someone from your life, this may be a good time for it.
September 23–October 22
The sun dips down to the bottom of your chart this week, luring you to the comforts of home and family. Being in a familiar environment, tuning into your emotions and tuning out the world will feel right in the coming weeks. A meeting between Mercury in your foundation angle and Jupiter in your spirit sector repeats this theme of quiet contemplation. Reflecting on the past and talking to relatives will be good for the soul and may teach you something about yourself. Your ruler Venus is also connecting with Jupiter, hinting that indulging your senses and desires can also feed your spirit. The full moon in your achievement corner is likely to stir up your ambition though, perhaps bringing a goal to fruition or pushing you into the spotlight. It could also spell parental drama that stresses you out. Serving others in some way will be a healthy outlet.
October 23–November 21
The sun enters your cognition-and-communication sector this week, putting an emphasis on the way you think and talk. Your brain and the tempo of daily life are apt to accelerate, and you’ll feel more curious and restless. You might have a lot on your mind and get overwhelmed by too much information. With Mercury in that house vibing with Jupiter now, reaching out to friends, networking, speaking to a group and expressing your hopes and ideals should go smoothly. Venus in Scorpio is also clicking with Jupiter, so your personal appeal is high and being around people will be beneficial. Venus helps you to come across as pleasant, charming, attractive and warm. If you meet someone new, the relationship is likely to have a positive influence on you. The full moon triggers a desire to take a leap of faith, have an adventure and push past boundaries around your beliefs, creativity and love life.
November 22–December 21
With the sun leaving Sagittarius and moving into your worth house this week, the focus shifts to what you have and what you need. Finances, possessions, personal values and self-confidence are emphasized in the coming weeks. Ask yourself if you’re making the most of what you have and whether your resources serve your needs or control you. A Mercury-Jupiter collaboration can help you to make the connection between such issues and your career aspirations. For instance, you might figure out a new way to make money or identify a talent you can tap into to reach a goal. Or you might decide to seek a raise, promotion or new job. The full moon in your merging sector compels you to consider someone else’s needs and to deal with an issue related to sharing, intimacy, trust, jealousy or loss. If you let go of something now, you’ll probably feel more at peace.
