How are the stars aligning for you this week? Only one way to find out…
April 20–May 20
This week’s new moon in Taurus signals it’s time for a personal reinvention, and the moon’s close connections with enthusiastic Jupiter and transformative Pluto nudge you to express yourself with confidence and espouse empowering beliefs. In the coming months, find the courage to show off your creativity and personality more—in part through your appearance. Play with different looks, but don’t make major changes until Mercury finishes its retrograde phase later in the month. Feel free to present yourself in a new way, perhaps by sharing your views with greater force and becoming part of a movement that resonates with you. See yourself in a new light and move toward that vision; your relationships and experiences are bound to reflect this process of growing into your whole, authentic self.
May 21–June 20
A new moon in the last house of your chart this week encourages you to nurture your soul. This would be a good period for starting a dream journal or a new spiritual practice. Spending time at home—alone, with family or with someone you’re very comfortable with—will replenish you, thanks to a favorable connection between this lunation and Jupiter. And given the link between Pluto and the moon, intimacy and introspection can also transform you now. Give extra attention to imaginative musings and intuitive insights, and make sure that you’re getting enough rest. Recognize the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of putting your mind at ease, and release your worries. Your year is ending, and you need to let go of anything that’s holding you back.
June 21–July 22
With the arrival of a new moon this week, you’ll have the impetus to see friends, socialize, do some professional networking and participate in group activities. Mercury is still retrograde in that house, so reconnecting with people you haven’t seen in awhile or renewing your ties to an organization would also be prudent. This lunation is meshing with Jupiter in your thinking-and-talking sector, facilitating learning and communication. Share your ideas with others, soak up information and broaden your perspective. People are capable of inspiring you now, so don’t keep to yourself. The moon’s link with Pluto in your one-on-one angle hints that you could meet someone who has a powerful effect on you—or a social encounter, humanitarian goal or new interest could transform an existing relationship.
July 23–August 22
The sun and moon align at the top of your chart this week, calling for you to focus on your public image and your professional standing. With Mercury retrograde in your ambition angle, you should be reviewing your progress and revising your goals. This is a good time to craft fresh objectives, and given the moon’s link with beneficent Jupiter in your worth house, you’d do well to focus on maximizing your resources and boosting your finances. The moon is also vibing with transformational Pluto in your productivity zone, so a shift in your habits, skills, work ethic and job description and intense dedication to what you’re doing can help you to advance in the direction that you desire. Utilize your creativity to tweak your goals and your approach to achieving them.
August 23–September 22
When a new moon shows up in your expansion house this week, that’s your invitation to reject the status quo and branch out in the coming weeks. Travel is one option, although with Mercury retrograde at the moment, you may need to put up with some glitches. Even changing your usual routine can help you to look at the world with fresh eyes. The moon is gelling with Jupiter in Virgo, further encouraging you to challenge yourself to push past limitations—real and imagined—and explore the possibilities of who you can be in the world. And a moon-Pluto link calls for you to continue to deepen and transform the way you express your authentic personality, experience love and pursue happiness. This is a chance to renew your commitment to your individual journey.
September 23–October 22
This week’s new moon occurs in your depth house, nudging you to go deeper into something—especially an investigation, a relationship, a passion project or a transformation of some sort. Psychological progress is in order now, so don’t be afraid to poke around in the darkest recesses of your mind and make peace with a demon or two. This is an opportunity to convert a negative into a positive. The moon is gelling with edifying Jupiter in your subconscious corner, underscoring the benefits of self-awareness. And it’s also clicking with determined Pluto in your emotions-and-memories angle, reiterating this emphasis on dealing with underlying feelings and old patterns and becoming healthier and stronger in the process. Trust, interdependence, intimacy and sharing are likely to seem challenging but worthwhile.
October 23–November 21
After the new moon arrives in your one-on-one angle this week, entering into a new relationship or taking an existing one to the next level are favored. With the sun in your opposite sign, you’re focused on your closest connections and your role in relationships. You’re extra aware of the need for companionship and should set your intentions to nurture your bonds with others in the coming weeks. The moon’s link with Jupiter in your humanity sector highlights the importance of mutually beneficial relationships, while its link with Pluto in your thinking-and-talking zone hints that shifting your mindset and expressing yourself in a more empowered way can improve your relationships. If you want to meet someone new, have faith in the possibilities that people represent and trust your profoundly intuitive insights.
November 22–December 21
A new moon arrives in your efficiency corner this week, making it a good time to start a fitness regimen; change your diet; commit to improving your health; alter your schedule; learn a skill; initiate a good habit; organize your workspace; launch a job search; take on a responsibility; solve a problem; tackle a task; or attend to details. Thanks to a positive connection between the moon and Jupiter in your ambition angle, such initiative could very well lead to significant progress. With Mercury retrograde, avoid making rash decisions, but do institute practical changes that will boost your productivity. A strong work ethic will help you to reach your aspirations and may help you to shift your financial picture. Make the most of your resources to increase your chances of success.
December 22–January 19
This week, the new moon coaxes you to let your inner child out to play. You might start a creative project or take up a hobby, and making more time for fun will boost your spirits. Romance is favored, so you could develop a crush or become extra affectionate with your significant other. Express your personality, passion and humor, and don’t be afraid to venture beyond the boundaries of your current identity. The moon is vibing with Jupiter, so this is a time to consider taking more chances and being a bit bold. The moon is also collaborating with Pluto in Capricorn, facilitating personal transformation and a commitment to the pursuit of love and happiness. With Mercury still retrograde, words may fail you, but your heart is in the right place.
January 20–February 18
With the arrival of a new moon at the bottom of your chart this week, your attention is called to home, family and feelings. You might soon find yourself relocating; dealing with a family development; making changes in your living space; spending more time with relatives; tuning into your underlying emotions; reflecting on the past; and craving comfort. Since Mercury is retrograde, it can be difficult to express what you’re feeling and ask for what you need—making self-nurturing extra important. The moon’s link with Jupiter does hint that confiding in someone you trust would be beneficial, but you might opt for introspection instead, and insights into your psyche are likely. A moon-Pluto connection implies that tending to your inner life will have a restorative effect on you.
February 19–March 20
This week’s new moon encourages you to ask questions; gather information; learn something new; care for your community; express your feelings; get in touch with people; talk to a sibling; be more aware of your environment; take a short trip; and tackle a mental task. The moon is jibing with Jupiter in your one-on-one angle, suggesting that you could gain a valuable contact by reaching out to others or gain knowledge from someone when you convey your hunger for learning. The moon is also cooperating with Pluto in your group house, further emphasizing the importance of networking and the power of team support. A moon-Neptune connection hints at an opportunity to share your spirituality, romantic side, creativity, compassion or intuition—transcending the inarticulateness of Mercury retrograde.
March 21–April 19
A new moon this week induces you to develop a fresh source of income; create a budget; set a financial goal; shore up your self-esteem; deal with an issue regarding your possessions; indulge your senses; and focus on what’s most valuable to you. You may feel an urge to fulfill your needs but probably won’t have complete clarity on the legitimacy of those needs. With Mercury retrograde in that house, you should continue to avoid impulse spending. The moon’s link with Jupiter suggests that improving your self-sufficiency is connected with the expansion of your skillset, enthusiasm for what you’re doing and a willingness to take on more responsibilities. A moon-Pluto collaboration highlights the long-term shift in your career path or life direction and the importance of being passionate about your goals.
