What does the universe have in store for you this week?
January 20–February 18
This week’s new moon in Aquarius represents your annual new beginning and invites you to change something about yourself. The moon is syncing with Saturn and Uranus, tying this personal reinvention to working with others and expressing yourself and thinking differently. Fresh interests and aims dovetail with a desire to switch up your look or the impression that you give off. Mars is battling the moon, so your impetus to start anew may collide with your pursuit of current goals. Although you have the energy to take on a challenge, try not to come on too strong with people who have seniority over you. Mercury’s arrival in Aquarius suggests you’ll soon feel more able to convey your message and to consider personal matters with objectivity. A Venus-Jupiter confab hints at selfless or private love — or indulgent alone time.
February 19–March 20
A new moon at the end of your chart this week nudges you to tend to your inner life. This house is associated with Piscean matters such as escape and spirituality, so it would be natural to retreat and do a bit of soul-searching. This is a good time to let go of something — or someone — that doesn’t serve your growth, and it’s also a nice opportunity to begin a new spiritual practice. The moon is clicking with Saturn and Uranus, implying that working toward your goals, taking on more responsibility, shifting your values or priorities and coping with financial ups and downs are all connected to releasing and replenishing. A Venus-Jupiter link hints that socializing and networking can result in a friendship, professional connection or romantic relationship that’s good for you. At the very least, you should enjoy pleasant interactions now.
March 21–April 19
After a new moon lands in your network corner this week, you may make a new friend, acquaintance or professional contact, join an organization, develop a new interest, initiate a humanitarian effort or contribute to a cause. You’re encouraged to reach out to others with whom you have something in common and to consider your roles in the various groups with which you’re associated. Since the moon is gelling with Saturn and Uranus, group relations are connected with learning what you need to know to succeed as well as changing your approach to life. The moon’s spat with Mars implies new people or new dreams may conflict with partnership or a passion project. With Venus and Jupiter syncing up, welcoming more work and responsibility will help you to make a good impression, and a job opportunity might come your way.
April 20–May 20
The new moon at the top of your chart this week indicates a potential for shifting your career path or life direction or setting a new goal. A moon-Saturn alliance alludes to building a partnership or stabilizing the support you get from outside resources, while a connection between the moon and Uranus reveals that you need to release the past and shake up the status quo in order to grab the brass ring. The fact that the moon is sparring with Mars suggests a joint effort could conflict with your personal ambitions. Thanks to a fortuitous meeting between Venus in your expansion sector and Jupiter in your joy corner, you’re bound to enjoy an experience outside your comfort zone or the company of a person who’s different from you. Venturing outside your everyday world will fulfill you and might teach you something about yourself.
May 21–June 20
Your ruling planet, Mercury, moves into your expansion house this week, facilitating learning, travel, discussion of abstract concepts and different approaches to life and a widening of your perspective. The new moon in that house invites you to feed your spirit for adventure and break out of your routine. Because the moon is meshing with Saturn in your partnership angle and Uranus in your network zone, such exploration is tied to a romantic relationship, friends and possibly a group with whom you’re affiliated. Learning, traveling and new experiences could solidify a bond, change a friendship, help you meet people or lead you to a new dream. A Venus-Jupiter link implies that enjoying closeness, trust and sharing will boost an underlying sense of peace and security and allow you to feel supported and at home with someone.
June 21–July 22
This week, a new moon can inspire you to pay off debt, apply for a loan or grant, get closer to someone, dig into a project, work through an issue in your psyche, recover from a loss or crisis and become more comfortable with trusting and sharing. The moon is clicking with Saturn in your productivity zone and Uranus in your ambition angle, so partnership and focusing intently on something you care about are linked with humble, hard work and flexibility in your goals and your path. But the moon is clashing with Mars, hinting that your pursuit of personal pleasure, fun, romance and creativity may not sync up with your investment in something or someone. Luckily, a Venus-Jupiter collaboration indicates honest, optimistic communication and open-mindedness will enhance your rapport with another individual and help you to get along with people in general.
July 23–August 22
With a new moon falling in your one-on-one angle this week, you could begin a new relationship, redefine an existing one, change your habitual relationship dynamic or go public with something you’ve been working on. The moon’s connection with Saturn in your love-and-happiness corner alludes to the possibility of showing a creative project to others or getting serious with someone, while its tie to Uranus in your expansion house suggests that any new developments with relationships will link back to changes in your beliefs and perspective. Since the moon is fighting with Mars in your foundation angle, relationship progress may conflict with domestic duties or underlying anger, and family or the past could pose resistance to this next step. But Venus is syncing with Jupiter now, enabling you to enjoy fruitful work that can boost your finances or your confidence.
August 23–September 22
When a new moon lands in your efficiency house this week, that’s your cue to launch some sort of self-improvement campaign. Initiate a positive habit, clean up your diet, start a new exercise regimen, revamp your schedule, organize your workspace, book medical appointments, sharpen your skills, try a new approach to a problem or start a job search. The moon’s collaboration with Saturn and Uranus hints that turning over a new leaf is linked to building inner security, overcoming an old pattern, being more independent and turning a corner in your psyche. Venus is cooperating with Jupiter in Virgo now, so love, fun, creativity and happiness can inspire you to keep exploring and growing as an individual. And Mars is also clicking with Jupiter, signaling that you’re able to walk your talk — plus you may encounter a good opportunity to pursue your aims.
September 23–October 22
This week’s new moon arrives in your fulfillment corner, coaxing you to be creative, get a crush, start a love affair, express your personality, let your inner child out to play and enjoy life. You have a need to be you and receive positive feedback from others. The moon’s links to Saturn in your cognition-and-communication house and Uranus in your one-on-one angle signal that making plans — while leaving room for others to go their own way — will give your new push for romance, happiness or personal fulfillment a good shot at success. Recognizing how you think and allowing for breathing room in your relationships will also help. A Venus-Jupiter meeting indicates that the pleasures of home will feed your spirit, and quiet alone time can give you a sustaining sense of peace and wellbeing. So don’t hesitate to retreat to your nest.
October 23–November 21
This week, the new moon hints at a shift in your family or home life, and you’re encouraged to consider what makes you feel grounded and secure. Tune into your emotions, and ask yourself how you might change your living space so it will provide more comfort. The moon is gelling with Saturn and Uranus, implying that organizing your possessions, getting your priorities straight, controlling your finances and changing your habits, your schedule, your work and your habitual approach to daily life will aid this shift in your foundation. However, the moon is feuding with Mars in Scorpio, so you may be fighting this change or working against it in some way. Fortunately, Mars and Venus are clicking with Jupiter, suggesting that momentum, assertiveness, positive thinking, friendly interactions, group support and faith in your ideals will all keep your spirits up.
November 22–December 21
After the new moon’s arrival in your cognition-communication-and-community house this week, you could gather new information, become curious about a fresh subject, make a quick decision, take a short trip or become extra busy. A fresh development with a sibling or in your neighborhood is also possible. This is a good time for getting in contact with people and learning something new. The moon’s links to Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in your fulfillment corner connect all of this with the work you’ve been doing on yourself and a change in your personality, love life or creativity. A moon-Mars skirmish hints that you could subconsciously undermine this new development, so be careful not to work against yourself. Meanwhile, a Venus-Jupiter meeting suggests ambition, responsibility and recognition are linked with valuing your talents and attracting what you need.
December 22–January 19
This week’s new moon in your worth zone nudges you to generate a new source of income, become more self-sufficient, get your finances, possessions and priorities in order and work on your self-esteem. Since the moon is collaborating with Saturn and Uranus, improving your security is tied to resolving old business, releasing patterns and emotions that you’ve been stuck in and breaking away from the past. The moon’s feud with Mars in your network zone implies that such changes may conflict with teamwork. But Venus in Capricorn is gelling with Jupiter in your expansion house, improving your interactions and inspiring you to take risks for the sake of personal pleasure. You’re likely to attract a wide range of people and experiences and will enjoy broadening your horizons. A degree of indulgence you don’t ordinarily allow yourself is in order now.
