Sweet liberation! You can’t stand the thought of anyone claiming ownership rights to you this week. But, don’t get carried away with the renegade routine. When Friday’s new moon in Libra energizes your house of partnerships, you’ll feel like pairing up again. So consider yourself fair warned: Don’t burn any bridges, Aries.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Draft those contracts, Taurus. Putting agreements in writing is a must this week, especially if money is involved. Don’t skimp on lawyer’s fees if you’re in a conundrum or need to properly file paperwork. Having professional guidance will save you money in the long run. Friday’s new moon in your well-being sector gets you inspired to take better care of your bod. Fill the fridge with organic produce, spring for the renewable, monthly yoga-studio membership, hire a trainer or nutritionist to help you stay on point.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
At some point, Gemini, you have to leave the past in the past. If you’ve agreed to forgive someone, stop bringing up the transgression. If you must vent, do so to a neutral third party. Then, focus your rebuilding efforts on finding common ground or putting energy towards the things that do work about your relationship with the “offending party.” New love, or a renewed chapter with your sweetie arrives with Friday’s new moon. You could also be offered a prestigious opportunity, one that brings you fame and recognition over the coming six months.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Is your flirting really that innocent, Cancer? What seems like harmless batting of lashes to you could rouse deep feelings in another person — feelings that range from red-hot lust to extreme jealousy. Keep things on the level this week. On Friday, the new moon in your domestic zone could send you on the search for new digs, or on an emergency run to the paint store, IKEA, or Design Within Reach. Reconnect with old friends and family over the weekend — it will warm your heart.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Talk about those tough emotions instead of sweeping them under the rug or hoping they’ll go away if you just “get over it.” While time heals all wounds, you still need to apply the medicine. What do you need here that you are not getting? Moreover, is the person who is in your crosshairs someone who is truly capable of providing that, or are you expecting superhuman qualities from him/her? When approaching tense topics, it’s best to talk in “I" language (Read: “I felt hurt when you decided to invite Eric to the Kanye show instead of bringing me”) as opposed to the accusatory “you” (“If you loved me, you would make me your plus one!”).
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Make it a tag-team effort this week, Virgo. Although it can be hard to let go of the control, you’ll give yourself a nervous breakdown if you keep heaping more onto your plate. Sharing the glory won’t dim your bright and star-powered lights. Fresh financial opportunities are in the cards, courtesy of Friday’s new moon in Libra and your second house of money. Yes, you should put your feelers out, even if you’re mostly satisfied with your current job. You never know, Virgo. If nothing else, you might just discover that you’re capable of commanding more — great info with which to walk into a “let’s talk about my salary” discussion.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Don’t microwave that relationship, Libra! You’ll miss out on the best parts by rushing to slap a label on it. Take deep breaths when the compulsive-texting urge strikes. Go enjoy a cultural activity — a distraction that helps you connect to your “I am whole unto myself” nature. When you’re feeling full and self-directed, you’re impossible to resist. Friday marks your cosmic New Year, thanks to the annual new moon in Libra. Give yourself the gift of self-development and invest in a class or experience that will rock your world.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The ceiling can’t hold you, Scorpio. With expressive, inquisitive Mercury in your sign for nine weeks, you might as well check your Mysterioso persona at the door. Now’s the time to wear your heart on your sleeve, shamelessly self promote, and essentially turn your insides out. With Friday’s new moon in your house of fame, your outré moves could score you major recognition. Just steer clear of a Mileygate. Shock value is not needed to earn your street cred.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
One door closes, another opens. This week, you will be faced with a choice: Let go of one situation and take a leap of faith that something better is around the corner, or stay stuck in the safety zone (never a favorite place for your adventurous sign). May we recommend a journey into the unknown? It’s not like you’ll have to navigate this territory all by your lonesome. Friday’s new moon in your community zone brings new friends and guides to help you along your path.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
More women, more problems? This week, trying to get all your girls to agree upon a plan could be a nightmare of diva-like proportions. Don’t force the togetherness: Some of these ladies may simply never get along, and that’s not a failure on your part. Friday’s new moon in Libra revs up your ambitions. Settling for mediocrity is just not in your skill set, Capricorn, and thank goodness for that! Take the bull by the horns and set up those power lunches, informational meetings, and performance reviews. Your ascent up the ladder could take you to dizzying heights over the coming six months.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Money gets funny this week; an unfortunate byproduct of your attempts to avoid the “taboo” topic. Rather than letting misunderstandings get out of hand, call a summit. From splitting the cable bill to hashing out an IOU (yours or theirs), creative solutions may emerge from these convos. Near the weekend, fresh possibilities glimmer on distant horizons as the Libra new moon brings opportunity from afar. You might even put in for a transfer to the London office or partner up with a pal in another city on a project or venture.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
The truth becomes self-evident this week as communicator Mercury moves into Scorpio and your honest-to-a-fault ninth house until December 3. Like dear, sweet Pinocchio, you cannot tell a lie, but do temper your words with tact. Otherwise, your meaningful message could get lost in translation. Friday’s new moon refreshes your mojo. Stop casting your pearls before swine, Pisces, and go where your allure is appreciated. In a relationship? Talks could turn to a serious merger, which further entwines your lives.
