We start off the week with an intense Full Moon in Gemini occurring on the 11th (West Coast time) and on the 12th (East Coast time). Earlier in the day on the 11th, Venus and Saturn align in Capricorn. This aspect will force us to make decisions about relationships and tighten our wallets. On the 13th, Venus and Pluto link up in Capricorn, adding intensity to the matters brought to our attention on the 11th by Saturn. Pluto aims to transform, while Saturn wants to teach us lessons. These two planets galvanizing Venus means that we are having major financial and love karma this week. It’s up to us to make a change for the better. Mars, who’s in Scorpio, gently collides with Neptune, who’s in Pisces on the 13th. Emotions will run deep on Friday the 13th, even forcing us to be in a temporary funk. Or, we may feel emotionally fluid to express our sentiments with others. Jupiter, who’s in Capricorn, connects with Uranus, who’s retrograde in Taurus, on the 15th. These planets will serve as a celestial guide to understanding our worth — which will boost our confidence. 



Aries 

March 21 - April 19


You’re in high demand this week, which means all eyes are on you. While you would normally not shy away from the limelight, you are finding that you want to live a more private life (after a public rant). The reason being is that you are composed of different sentiments (as we all are) and have conflicting feelings. You may choose to take a social media break as a result of your newly found desires. 



Taurus 

April 20 - May 20


Your fundamental beliefs are transforming and evolving into something poetic, which is the effect of an enormous emotional shift. You’re seeing situations and people clearly now, which is allowing you to decipher who and what you want in your life. This conscious change is the first of many beautiful changes you will undergo in the next year. Prepare yourself for growth. Spread your wings and fly, sweet butterfly. You’re becoming the person of your dreams. 



Gemini 

May 21 - June 20


It’s perfectly fine to be a little selfish every now and again. In fact, you need to be because you give too much of your energy away for free. Start putting your desires and dreams first, before others. You should make sure you’re taken care of first and then help out those who’ve asked for your assistance. Then, you can attain the merit you deserve without frustrations and annoyances. Brag about yourself, then your friends. 



Cancer 

June 21 - July 22


You’re thinking about escaping the humdrum activities that come along with your responsibilities. Before you completely dip out for the week, make sure you alert others to your whereabouts because they may disrupt your vision quest for peace (which will send you into an emotional tizzy). Create space and boundaries for yourself, as well as others. With personal limits set in place, you can enjoy the week’s lunar vibes and sensations quietly, without any annoyances 



Leo 

July 23 - August 22


Change is in the air for you — especially in the home. You are inspired to take a leap of faith and find a new space to live in. You’re now in the mood to transform and evolve your life, which means letting go of the past, embracing fresh opportunities, and starting over in some areas of your life. Move towards evolution and growth — it will do you good and help recharge your energy!



Virgo 

August 23 - September 22


You do such an amazing job at keeping everyone level headed and balanced. This week the tables are turned. You feel a little off kilter in the personal and professional areas of your life. This may result in you confronting others for bringing you emotional let downs. Take time and think of you really want to spend the week arguing over past matters — or if you want to focus on restoring harmony in your life. 



Libra 

September 23 - October 22


Once again, you feel as though you are at an impasse where you feel as though there’s no hope of fulfilling your dreams. Don’t allow such negative thinking to bring you down. Reach out and connect with a higher spiritual power through meditation. You’ll find that when you have clarity of mind you can achieve anything you desire. Not only that, but you will  be able to focus on what really matters to you deep down. 



Scorpio 

October 23 - November 21


Your creativity is on fire now — as well as your intuition. Try to blend these two together to create the ultimate artistic vision. You’ll become inspired by your dreams and your magical inclinations which will blend into an amazing project. Let your imagination guide and inspire you this week. You will not regret it. In fact, you’ll find that you’ve never been more motivated to create and produce beauty for the world to see. 



Sagittarius 

November 22 - December 21

You often put your foot in your mouth,  which rubs people the wrong way. Rather than impulsively expressing every feeling from within, try to think before you speak this week. You’ll find that it will save you a lot of drama and arguments from forming. Play the conversation in your head before using your words to hurt others (although it may not be intended, people may find your wording and sentiments to be somewhat harsh). 



Capricorn 

December 22 - January 19


It’s high time you took a day off to unwind from the stresses of life. Recent emotional trials and tribulations have left you feeling energetically exhausted — nearly almost depleted. Use a selenite crystal to detox all the impurities from your aura. Then, take a healing salt bath with Moon water during the Full Moon to decompress. A little R & R will go a long way this week. After all, you deserve it. 



Aquarius 

January 20 - February 18


You may be upset when a romantic liaison comes to an abrupt halt this week, which will make you crawl back to your friends who you’ve recently been ignoring. Your friends will accept you back with open arms, as long as you make an effort to put them first before new flames. Relationships come and go — but, your true blue and loyal friends will stay with you no matter what because they love you. 



Pisces 

February 19 - March 20


A strange alliance will help move your goals forward this week. Don’t say “no” to an offer that seems too good to be true. Usually they aren’t legit, but this week you are finding that it will lead you to prospective career opportunities. 

You may even find that the offer will boost you forward into a new direction in life. Keep your eyes and ears open. Most importantly, say “yes” to promising and surprising endeavors.
