Aries, as the superhero of the zodiac, your willingness to step in and step up to challenges is second to none. However, over the next few years, it will serve you to not only have a strong back, but also a soft front, as social researcher Brene Brown suggests. Vulnerability has never been your byword, however, the cosmos supports you when you allow others to see you as you truly are. As your outlook is changing and softening, consider some serious natural self-care. Virgo season encourages soothing herbs, massage, or even yoga. You may find a natural health mentor, or be attracted to picking up some skills in the area. Notice what modality has been catching your attention and look closer, be exploratory and experimental and if its cutting edge, even better. With all those new skills and personal experience, this could turn out to be your new side hustle.
Taurus | Taurus rising
New week, new you Taurus—or so it seems to your friends since you’ve been shaking up your status as dependable and consistent. If things are changing, loosen your grip and let them change. Feel the difference between what’s flowing and what meets you with resistance. Look for the open doors! You might try a new look, then another, mix it up, it’s going to work for you. If you haven’t already, tech up to catch up, or even get ahead. You’re first in line to meet new opportunities if you’re willing to trust and go with the change that’s calling from within. Rules were meant to be broken, this is your time to spread your wings Taurus and write your own. You're the one to follow right now. Midweek sees a decisive moment in relationships and you go from fun to serious. Any offers of collaboration may need special attention, so find the right fit before agreeing to share your genius or merge creative output.
Gemini | Gemini rising
This week's first quarter moon suggests you’ll need to strike a balance in relationships. The lunar cycle is on the up and up so take some of those sparkling ideas and put them into action. Consider how to adjust your relationships with someone special so it’s more equal. You’ll also have to find a balance within as relationship needs and domestic tranquility are rubbing each other the wrong way. If you don’t already have your home life and routine pinned down, you’ll feel the push to nail it this week. Meanwhile, in your career zone, high ideals need extra effort to actualize into practice. Perhaps there’s a bit of smoke and mirrors involved. You’ll be a little mystified but the secret is to use your peripheral vision and trust your subtle senses. Idealizing someone else won’t help, listen to your inner wisdom regarding steps to take, direction or how you can best serve. Make sure you check facts as they’ll be hazy this week.
Cancer | Cancer rising
Special interest groups continue to feed your mind and soul so connect with your kindred spirits. Intellectual twinning on shared topics will propel you forward so say yes to random or surprise opportunities to share thoughts. Perhaps a collaboration could be in the works, guesting on a podcast re your fav topic or even inviting someone sparkly onto your platform to share practical how-tos, and not just conceptual ideas. This week’s first-quarter moon further pushes you to dig in and open up your routine, as well as your work schedule to allow for extra-curricular comms. Perhaps you have some bright ideas on how to expand at work yet not sure how to. You'll need to push past emotional resistance in order to spread your wings and extend your horizons on the work front.
Leo | Leo rising
Throughout Virgo season power up your money mojo by building your self-esteem. You demonstrate natural confidence and ability to celebrate the wins, so most people don’t realize you’re a perfectionist at heart. You tend to only show your best work, so apply your high standards to what makes your soul sing. Representing yourself authentically, especially if a little radical or unexpected will be the pattern breaker that gets you noticed. The first quarter moon suggests a little stress between your finances and your fun zone. You'll want to keep saving yet it’s going to cost cash if you want to pursue an activity, expand on a past time or create just the right romantic occasion. Your creative flair and self-expression is a key part of your identity and the world wants what you have to share. So whether it’s a more suitable guitar so your talent can soar, creative photo filter pack, or dance lessons, find the balance and invest in yourself wisely.
Virgo | Virgo rising
Cards are falling in your favor as the planets continue to highlight your presence in most environments while in your sign. So make sure you push past your inner hermit and show up. Utilize the social grace of Venus to attract, as well as open doors. This is your month for a photoshoot or headshots to update your online presence while an easy flow from your creative zone supports your image. Book in a photoshoot, or tweak your branding. On Tuesday, expect an epiphany or useful information to find its way to you. By next weekend you’ll have the chance to show off what you’ve been working on and be noticed. Use the extra energy and assertiveness from Mars in your sign, to execute your plans with precision. It may be time to take a commitment step and go deeper in romance or your creative output. Draw on and master talent you’ve developed rather than try to re-invent the wheel.
Libra | Libra rising
Find that midway point between what rational common sense would have you believe, and your intuitive guidance, as these two sources of info clash. Check your beliefs; what are they and where did they come from? You're keen to learn, explore information systems and expand your knowledge generally so find a course or style that combines both your rational and intuitive mind. A divination system may do the trick, think tarot, astrology or even human design principles. Generally, this is a week promising insight by ferreting out information that’s been eluding you. Be open to unusual ways of finding it, like synchronicity. Soul-seek by asking your higher-self questions, then stay open to the myriad of forms the reply can take. Symbols, messages, dreams and even lyrics that catch your ear and resonate are worth a second look in. Sudden revelations not just from your own unconscious mind, but from a significant other could surprise you with their depth so promise that privacy is assured.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
If you’re open to creative collabs this is your week as your partnerships support your place in the group. Shared interests tend to bond so find something you’d like to do as a duo. If contributing or stepping into a group, watch the membership fee whether it’s monetary or values-based. Don’t budge on your values just to be accepted by friends or a group; this is key and something this week is suggesting you work through in order to move forward. Do you need to give yourself a pep talk or confidence boost so you feel up to standard? Look for times in your life you’ve been enough, that you’ve done something well, even excelled. Tap back into that feeling, expand it in your body, and note positive supportive gestures and expressions around you. Now you remember what that was, remind yourself if doubt starts to creep back in. These steps will pay off on the weekend as the benefits support your public image or career.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
Expect a boost as this week’s cosmic constellation connects your finances with career zone. If you’ve been versatile within your career, you’ll reap positive results. Your next step to align how you see yourself vs your public image. Duty and taking care of all those details at work may be getting in the way of your personal growth. Balance it out by allowing yourself to explore and free-range, then find ways of applying your learning in a practical way, at work or in your public image. Perfect what you’ve learned, but don’t allow perfection procrastination to constrict your ability to search for new truths, concepts or even rainbows. Changing up your daily routine will add extra sparkle to your career too. Off the wall or cutting-edge ideas you have for work will get you noticed if you're willing to share. Again, these must be useable, so think it through before presenting.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
You may have trouble following your hunches this week but remember: direct experience is worth a thousand philosophical systems or intellectual concepts. Dogma and your inner voice are at odds so it’s time you put together your own life manifesto. The key will is in pinning down the details, keep it simple. You’re a natural at creating systems, so design a useable system of wisdom knowledge. Big task? Capricorn loves a challenge more than most, and this months work will set you up for your next move. Call in your creative muse, and make this highly original. This is your story after all. Draw on what you’ve learned from the big changes and challenges you’ve overcome so others may learn from your experience and authority. The moon in your sign over the weekend helps you connect emotionally making it ideal for any publicity, podcasting, Instagram Stories or other ways to reach out to build on your circle of influence.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
You're inspired to expand your circle of friends this week, however, it’s clashing with your intimacy zone. Perhaps you want to be footloose and fancy-free on the one hand, and on the other, you want a militant level of control. How can you balance the ins and outs of who’s doing what, when and with whom in your private life vs fear of missing out on freedom with friends and a lower-level of commitment? If you’re hoping to make more out of a friendship and it’s eluding you, make a reality check. Be discerning, develop trust, and find a mid-point so you both play by the same rules. Is a situation workable, ready or even able to match your ideal? If so, it’s important to communicate clearly, especially in the private or hidden finer emotional points. Your (chosen) family is there to support you so lean into ideas you wouldn’t have thought of yourself but actually, are brilliant!
Pisces | Pisces rising
The stars are focusing on your partnership which is great, yet it’s interfering with your ability to expand your career and public image and vice-versa. However, these two areas need integration so don’t favor one over the other. If they don’t mutually support each other, give them equal yet separate time so they both thrive. Singletons, this means any equal relationship that may be conflicting with your career – even if that’s too many dates on the go to give the energy (or sleep) your career needs for growth. Find the balance if you can’t find the integration. Perhaps a dream team collaborator that works in with your side hustle? If you’re open to doing things differently, new ideas, or even updating with a short course this will pay off. Perhaps doing one together with your personal or professional work wife/husband will keep you both on the same page and channel up into supporting your career moves.
