June 21–July 22

This week’s full moon in your one-on-one angle calls for you to balance your needs with those of another person, and it could spell a turning point in a relationship. A conflict between this lunation and unpredictable Uranus in your goals sector introduces the question of where a particular connection is headed, and the moon’s harmony with edifying Jupiter in your thinking-and-talking corner suggests communication is essential and may help to promote relationship growth. The moon is linked with Mars in your joy zone, so your pursuit of love and happiness will influence whether you accommodate someone — and perhaps take things to the next level — or walk away. An intense attraction or emotional connection is also a distinct possibility. Mercury and Venus in your worth house are gelling with Saturn, combining good financial judgment and the ability to get what you desire with a solid work ethic. You know what you want and how to use your resources, and you’re willing to do what needs to be done in order to attain what you yearn for. Both planets are clashing with Neptune and Pluto, making it extra important not to delude yourself when it comes to money and security and not to get into a power struggle.





July 23–August 22

Mercury and Venus are vibing with Saturn in your fulfillment house this week, enhancing your ability to self-actualize and express who you are to others. Taking what you have to offer seriously — including, but not limited to, your creative contributions and your heartfelt feelings — will allow you to put yourself out there in a way that merits notice. You’re working to become more and more yourself, and your hard-earned wholeness enriches your appeal, albeit in a non-flashy way. Leo can be like a child saying, “Look at me!” but ultimately, your sign is about discovering and expressing your unique essence, not simply demanding attention. Your current magnetism goes beyond superficial charm, as you radiate your genuine individuality and convey your sincere convictions. Try not to focus on the ideal response, because Neptune’s conflicts with Mercury and Venus suggest that the feedback, support or intimacy you crave may be elusive. The full moon could spell a health or work flare-up that might curtail your freedom, but making the most of your resources and taking care of business on the home front will definitely help. With the sun’s arrival in Leo, your vitality surges, and your self-focus becomes sharper and more fruitful. Happy birthday!




August 23–September 22

Mercury and Venus are tucked away in the last house of your chart and clicking with Saturn this week, encouraging productive reflection and restorative retreat. You may find it useful to look back over the past year, write in a journal, process your memories and emotions, sort through mementos and photos or declutter your home. Taking care of someone who needs you is apt to be rewarding. This would also be a good time to discuss a family secret or get closure on a past relationship. Neptune’s disagreements with Mercury and Venus hint that not thinking through what you’re saying could result in confusion with another person, and subconscious desires may feed disillusionment in a relationship. But the full moon in your fulfillment house is gelling with Jupiter in Virgo, inspiring you to enjoy life to the fullest and wear your heart on your sleeve, come what may. You’re in the mood to take a chance and assert yourself, but the moon’s clash with Uranus in your closeness sector implies you won’t be able to predict the response you’ll get, and you’ll have to be okay with that. If a love affair ends now, trust that it’s for the best.




September 23–October 22

Group communication and relations should be a high point of your week, thanks to Mercury and Venus in your network zone collaborating with Saturn in your thinking-and-talking corner. You’re encouraged to share your thoughts and ideas and to also listen and learn from others. Your habitual ways of processing information and perceptions, speaking your mind and hearing people out are slowly evolving, and they merit examination. Your current interactions can help to form the way you think and talk, so get out and circulate. You’re apt to meet some sort of mentor now. Mercury and Venus are out of sync with Neptune and Pluto, making collaboration with coworkers and family more difficult. Your energy level, health, mood or home life might keep you from socializing to the extent that you desire. The full moon at the bottom of your chart may require you to attend to your family or living situation or to deal with underlying emotions and try to understand what’s going on inside you. A close relationship may be affected by such issues — or the other way around. This would probably be a good time to get rid of possessions or emotional baggage in order to clear space in your home or your psyche.




October 23–November 21

With Mercury in your achievement angle vibing with Saturn in your worth house this week, career planning, communication with higher-ups and articulation of your ambitions will dovetail nicely with savvy use of resources and a serious approach to finances. If you know that you deserve a raise, this would be a good time to make your case. Venus’s connection with Saturn can also help you to gain favor with authority figures and shore up your public image, possibly resulting in concrete benefits. Since Mercury and Venus are both fighting with Neptune in your play sector, although you’d like to focus on accomplishing your objectives, you might get distracted by more pleasurable pursuits such as romance or fun with friends. Give yourself a chance to escape from reality at some point, perhaps by watching a movie or even just spending several minutes daydreaming. Mercury and Venus are also out of sync with Pluto in your mindset zone, so you may need to dial down your need for control and adjust your definition of success for the time being. The full moon will rev up your brain and the pace of daily life, and you could feel pulled in many different directions, but you’ll be able to handle what comes up.




November 22–December 21

Mercury and Venus are in your expansion zone and collaborating with Saturn in Sagittarius this week, linking your personal growth with learning, travel and other experiences that broaden your horizons. Saturn has been making you feel more serious and perhaps more isolated, but his current links with other planets can bring out your characteristic wanderlust, adventurousness, courage, enthusiasm and optimism. Since Saturn is keeping you on the straight-and-narrow to some extent, any risks you take now will be wisely calculated. But Mercury and Venus are conflicting with Neptune, hinting that family or domestic chaos, a sensitive mood or an underlying yearning for comfort and quiet could lure you away from your intent to branch out. Pluto is also feuding with Mercury and Venus, so financial pressures or shifting self-esteem could also curtail your efforts to explore. But visiting new places, meeting new people, learning new things and exposing yourself to stimulating ideas, beliefs, encounters and events will help you to feel more connected to the world and more in tune with the person that you’re in the process of becoming. The full moon might boost your income, especially if you’re working behind the scenes in some capacity, but guard against impulsive spending.




December 22–January 19

This week’s full moon in your sign might make you feel temperamental and needy, but luckily, it’s meshing with active Mars in your network sector, suggesting that group activities and teamwork will be a useful outlet for your overflow of energy. Doing something with friends can help you to release emotions rather than bottling them up and risking implosion or explosion. The moon is also gelling with Jupiter in your expansion zone, so horizon-broadening experiences such as travel and learning will also enable you to let loose and experience a feeling of flow. Because the moon is clashing with Uranus in your foundation angle, home and family are apt to trigger moodiness, so your best bet is to get out and see a wide range of people or hang with good friends. However, Mercury and Venus in your sharing house are vibing with Saturn in your retreat corner, encouraging intimate connection and contemplative reflection. Spending time with someone you trust or by yourself — casting your gaze inward or backward — can restore your spirit. Since Mercury and Venus are feuding with Neptune and Pluto, a power struggle or misunderstanding between you and another person is possible; you can overcome such challenges by striving for rational, caring give-and-take.




January 20–February 18

Mercury and Venus are in your one-on-one angle and quarreling with Neptune in your worth house this week, suggesting that your rapport with other individuals could be affected by iffy self-esteem or insecurity over getting your needs met. Confusion related to money, possessions and values can also impact relationships now. And Mercury and Venus are out of sync with Pluto in your subliminal sector as well, so turbulence in your subconscious or unfinished business can also influence how well you communicate with people and get along with them. Thankfully, Mercury and Venus are vibing with Saturn in your network sector, enhancing group relations and hinting that you might connect with someone who shares your objectives or interests and will mentor or support you. Reaching out to people whom you can team up with — perhaps to achieve a philanthropic goal — would be worth your while. A full moon in the last house of your chart calls for you to attend to what’s going on inside you at some point, lest repressed emotions come bursting to the surface, possibly via rash language. The moon’s link with Jupiter in your depth house means you’d do well to carve out quiet time for private introspection or soothing intimacy.




February 19–March 20

With Mercury and Venus in your efficiency corner battling Neptune in Pisces this week, your inclination to focus on work, health or your to-do list could be thwarted at times by a desire to escape reality. Imaginative musings or decadent pleasures might keep you from taking care of business in the here and now; if you get distracted, simply noticing that you’ve drifted and nudging yourself back on track should help. Mercury and Venus are also at odds with Pluto in your network zone, suggesting that group interests or new goals that seem pressing may compete with executing your own immediate agenda and feeling personally productive. Fortunately, Mercury and Venus are gelling with Saturn in your ambition angle, so concentrating on what you need to do and enjoying your work will almost surely pay off in a tangible way; remind yourself that it will be worth it to try your best to stay on task. Critical thinking and creative effort can earn you recognition now. The full moon might spell emotional drama with friends or the end of an association with a group. Strive to balance self-expression with a consideration for the needs of others, and don’t lose sight of the fact that we are all connected.




March 21–April 19

Thanks to Mercury and Venus meshing with Saturn this week, you’re inspired to express your creativity and feelings and enjoy life — and to learn something in the process. With Saturn in this part of your chart, you’re in a phase of figuring out how the world works, formulating your personal philosophy and establishing rules to live by, and right now, being yourself, loving someone and pursuing happiness will feed into that ongoing development. Mercury and Venus are clashing with Neptune in your network zone though, so your inclination to have a good time and do you could throw people off, or you may need to dial it down if group interests or a friend in need take precedence. And Pluto’s disagreements with Mercury and Venus suggest that pressure to achieve could temporarily interfere with your pursuit of pleasure as well. The full moon signifies the fruition of a goal, a shift in your career path or life direction or emotional drama with an authority figure. A productive partnership and positive work ethic aid success, but given the fact that Uranus in Aries is feuding with the moon, you’ll need to overcome a rebellious streak and an urge to throw the baby out with the bathwater.




April 20–May 20

With Mercury and Venus at the bottom of your chart linking with Saturn in your depth sector this week, talking to a family member or someone who feels like family can help you to understand yourself better, work through a conflict or come to grips with a crisis, loss or wound — and introspection can have the same effect. Consider spending time at home getting in touch with your emotions or getting close to someone. A relative is apt to commit to supporting you now. Mercury and Venus are skirmishing with Neptune, putting group relations and friendship on shakier ground. These planetary configurations may come down to you juggling home life and socializing. Meanwhile, Mercury and Venus are also out of sync with Pluto, so family and domestic pleasures may compete with travel, education and adventure. The full moon in your expansion sector implies an urge to take a leap of faith and break out of your routine and could bring a shift in your perspective. Especially given the moon’s connection with courageous Jupiter in your fulfillment house, this is a time for taking risks and moving beyond beliefs that limit who you can be and what your future might hold.




May 21–June 20

This week, Mercury and Venus in your thinking-and-talking corner are collaborating with Saturn in your one-on-one angle, enabling effective communication and a productive exchange of ideas and views. You can benefit from someone else’s experience, so put your trademark curiosity to good use by asking questions that will lead to valuable learning. It’s also a good time to have a serious conversation with someone close to you, and commitment may be a topic of discussion. Since Mercury and Venus are sparring with murky Neptune in your goals angle and intense Pluto in your sharing sector, talking about where a relationship is headed will probably be somewhat challenging and confusing, and you could get into a conflict involving sex, trust, jealousy or control. Honesty, maturity and level-headedness will improve dialogue now. The full moon lands in your sharing sector as well, so you’ll need to try to balance give-and-take as best you can. Be willing to work on an important relationship, and rely on your inner sense of self to remind you that you have a lot to offer. Uranus in your group zone is clashing with the moon, hinting that friendship combined with money, sexuality or secrets could spell emotional drama.
