Life may not be the same after this week, Aries. On Friday, a lunar eclipse in your sign — the first in a series that lasts until March '16 — puts your desires front and center. This energizing eclipse shifts you from dreaming to doing. Daring action is required to get your plans in motion and your name on the map.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’d better work, Taurus — be it at that 6 a.m. bootcamp or midday power yoga. Self-care is a top priority with this week’s stars. On Friday, you’re asked to let go of something that is clearly no longer serving you. Though you’re afraid to leave anyone in the lurch, your loyalties are misplaced here. Stop putting other people’s welfare above your own, especially if they aren’t returning the caring vibes.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Sparks are flying via Skype, Facetime, or a sultry email exchange. Explore that long-distance connection, but don’t forget the people close to home. A cross-cultural connection simmers with spicy potential this week, too. Friday’s eclipse stimulates your social life, so get out and explore a new scene. Simultaneously, a group you’ve been part of could combust. Time heals all wounds, so let the emotions cool down before trying to fix it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This week could find you cuddling up to someone new. Perhaps you shouldn’t be quite so suspicious of “strangers” and quite so tortoise-like with the whole getting-to-know-you process. Friday’s lunar eclipse launches your career into uncharted territory. Go with it, Crab — this is the beginning of a 2.5-year series of eclipses meant to launch you up the ladder of success. Your biggest challenge in this ascent: releasing your fear of leaving the familiar.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
The push-pull dynamic you’ve been stuck in is, frankly, exhausting. Step out of the ring this week, Leo, before another punch is thrown. This fight is not worthy of your time, nor is it productive. Here’s the rub: When you turn your attention elsewhere (truly, not superficially or to pass the time), the person you’ve been in conflict with will come running after you. Weekend travel blows your world wide open. Just go.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Unwavering and indefatigable: That’s you when you’ve dedicated yourself to a mission. Stay in that groove, even if the results haven’t materialized yet. You’re laying the foundation for success, but you need to send the universe some tangible proof that you want this (you really, really want this). Also, be aware that your seductive powers emerge with Friday’s eclipse. Be careful who you wish for right now, as this eclipse could perma-bond you to the object of your affections. Make sure you can love ‘em for better and for worse.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
No question about it, you have lots to say. This week, you need a bigger platform, like say, your own YouTube channel. Love is in the air, and Friday’s eclipse could reveal a prospect with long-term potential. A partnership — for business or pleasure — could become “officially official,” too. This has been in the works for a while, but you’re finally ready to take the leap.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You’re cast in the role of "The Responsible One" this week, Scorpio, so step up to the challenge. Hey, you kind of love it when people need your guidance — as long as they don’t start taking it for granted. Set limits for yourself before unleashing that generosity. (Repeat after us: “I don’t do rescue missions.”) Friday’s lunar eclipse in Aries brings a healthy-living wake-up call: more green juice, fewer G&Ts, please. Use the weekend to restore your vitality.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
This week, you find yourself among an all-star cast. This is where you belong, Archer, so don’t let doubt creep in. Err on the side of being “too much.” What seems over-the-top in some moments defines you as an influential and irreplaceable force. Friday’s lunar eclipse brings major momentum to a romantic situation. You’re finally getting somewhere, Sagittarius, but buckle up because that white horse your amour rides in on also takes off at a galloping pace.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Applause, applause: There’s nothing wrong with being motivated by praise, Capricorn, as long as it takes you where you want to go (as opposed to where others think you should be). Make it your mission to wow industry heavyweights and get their seal of approval this week. Friday’s eclipse could solidify your connection to an influential female. There may also be a scramble regarding a home or family situation. Give your inner circle top priority, even if that means putting career on the back burner temporarily. You won’t want to leave the ones you love in the lurch.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Open mouth, insert Choo? Not this week. You can’t go wrong with your over-the-top requests now. Instead of being an easy catch, make people work for it. They’ll appreciate you more that way. Friday’s eclipse brings a kindred spirit with BFF potential. This may be someone you’ve known for a while, but have overlooked. Spend the weekend getting to know more about each other. You’ll be amazed by the ease of your conversations and the (doh!) obvious click.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
This week is all about padding your pockets, Pisces. Start with the side gigs. Post that gently used couture that you never wear because, ugh, it’s permanently imprinted with disaster date memories or interview-from-hell energy. Your eBay empire awaits! There are other money-earnin’ options, too, like setting up an affiliate site, taking a job that pays commissions, or brokering a deal that you get a cut of. The steady nine-to-five cash may stream in with Friday’s eclipse, so use the weekend for strategic socializing with people who can help you get ahead.
