Starting today, the moon in your sign turns your already unflappable energy levels up to the highest possible setting. For the next few days, there’s nothing than can get in between you and the object of your desire. On Saturday, your ruler—Mars—aligns with the north node to boost your stamina for a major career move. It won’t be what you expect, with the Sun and Uranus in your sign, but you’ll have the fortitude to pull it off no matter what.

Sunday’s full moon in your sign becomes the focus point for all that energy. Lady Luna will be on electric Uranus, and in a tense alignment with Mercury and Pluto. News about your relationships and serious transformation in the way you approach your career come together to complete a total mindset shift. You’re still you, but something within you is irrevocably changed. On Tuesday, Venus moves from the secrets area of your horoscope into your ninth house, pushing you further outside your comfort zone.

Wednesday’s alignment of Mars and Pluto in Capricorn will be very intense for you—you’re ruled by Mars, so you’ll feel it more. This potent brew of energy and power helps you rebrand yourself, if you want to. If something needs to be said, you won’t be able to hold it back on Thursday, when messenger planet Mercury opposes Uranus in your sign. Surprises, or even something shocking, might be revealed.

Lady Luna willin a tense formation with Mercury and Pluto that shines her spotlight on where you need to step up your health and personal growth game. You’ve been overdoing it and are at the risk of serious burnout if you don’t change your style.

She’ll be there until Tuesday, so make the most of it!

If your mind is racing (and it usually is), grab a partner and talk out some concrete solutions for a pick-me-up on Friday afternoon when Mercury and Saturn connect. You might surprise yourself at how much you’re able to accomplish! Just don’t let that creative drive spiral out of control on Saturday, as Mercury fights with Pluto in your obsessions sector. Finding something compelling is a good thing, but too much can be overwhelming. An awkward alignment between Mercury and Chiron in your fame sector challenge you to consider whether you’re pursuing your latest goals for the right reasons. Do you want fame, artistic acclaim, or both?

It’s on Uranus at the top of your chart, who’s been making you feel more rebellious than usual; plus, this full moon locks into a tense formation with Mercury in your private sphere and Pluto in your partnership zone. Whether you decide to embark on a new joint venture or end one that isn’t working, it’ll be a sudden, clean break.

Shortly after, Lady Luna slips into Taurus until Tuesday, setting the mood for a day of recovery with plenty of creature comforts. Your sign doesn’t respond well to change, but it’s a necessary part of life. On Tuesday, Venus moves into your sixth house of habits, helping you integrate the full moon’s events into your everyday routine. That same day, the moon moves onto curious Gemini until Thursday, when she’ll enter your sign. If you can make it through this week (and you can!), you’ll be back to your usual self in no time.


You might feel a little uncomfortable in your own skin today as your ruler, the sun, strikes a dissonant chord with healer Chiron in your house of taboos.

It also helps you reconnect with the reason why you loved what you do in the first place. On Sunday, the Aries full moon in your fifth house of creativity allows you to generate whatever it is you’ll need to make those dreams a reality. It’s on electric Uranus, so a bolt-from-the-blue epiphany could arrive just in time. That said, it’s also in a tough alignment with Mercury and Pluto, so value will be an issue. Just know that it’s possible to balance your own self-worth and your income. It might just take some ingenuity, but you’re no stranger to that.

When Venus enters your sign on Tuesday, your mood lifts and your spirit lightens.

On Sunday, the Aries full moon lights the base of your chart, illuminating any dark personal shadows that need attention.

On Saturday, the Sun opposes your ruling planet, Uranus, to give you a cosmic shove towards the life you’ve only seen in visualizations. The catch? Anything that doesn’t align with that future has got to go. Sunday, the Aries full moon lights your third house of self-expression, helping you say, write, sing, paint, or otherwise tell your story.

Mercury opposes Uranus on Wednesday, challenging you to balance your personal ways of thinking with those of others. Everyone is entitled to their own worldview, even if you don’t agree. Don’t channel the Aries energy into subtweets or unnecessary communiques; instead, use it to inspire yourself and those around you to share their own stories.



Your sign isn’t known for its business acumen, but this month, you’d do well to try it out: everything is a commodity, you just have to know what yours is. Today, a dissonant chord between the sun and healer Chiron in your sign push you to look at what riches are lurking just beneath the surface of your life. The Aries full moon, flanked by explosive Uranus, is a variation on that theme. If you’ve been trying to hide something, this moon might just drag you; however, if you’ve been searching for buried treasure of some kind, there’s a good chance you’ll find it now.

On Tuesday, Venus enters your publicity sector, giving you a magnetic allure that you can use to your advantage. There’s two ways this can work: first, you turn on the charm for potential clients and other admirers to great effect. Second, anything brought out by the full moon is exposed. Luckily, Venus is excellent with people and knows how to handle any situation with grace. Mercury and Chiron are out of focus on Wednesday, making communication difficult. You want to connect, but your emotional approach prevents your words from landing properly. For your sign, diplomacy and strategy are far better than a fight
