As we travel through these 40 days of our inner(lunar) journey towards integration of Self and purpose, we shall also be following the mythic path trodden by the goddesses, Isis and Nephthys in the ancient mysteries of the Egyptian Temple.

The quest of the Goddess Isis, the Bright Queen, and her Dark sister Nephthys, both lunar deities, will represent our Soul’s quest to realize itself through Love, accompanied by its faithful shadow, through the spirals and cycles of returning incarnation, to find and re-unite with the lost, perhaps forgotten, wholeness of separate Self with true Spirit. This is symbolised for the Egyptians as the Bright Masculine Lord of Light, Osiris.

The myth tells of how the sacred body of Osiris was dismembered by the dark forces of the material world and scattered over the length and breadth of the Two Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt, the task falling to his wife and her sister to find these parts and re-member them.

This tale illustrates how Life brings about separations within and from the Sacred Self and the way to unite it in consciousness, with Soul and Shadow working together under the Moon.

We shall attune to this beautiful mystical lunar Sisterhood within to discover what lies beneath the waters of our waking nature, finding deeper reasons and meaning behind our actions and feelings, providing us with new, magical realisations of wisdom and healing.

Special emphasis will be placed on dreams and visions which occur during this time, and the opportunities to discuss and interpret them with each other and your Temple Guides, K.N.Butler and Sherene Vismaya.

Individuality and uniqueness are the supreme gifts of Separateness, but in this, we are each, although incredibly separate and different, all the same. Perhaps this is the the perfect ultimate sorrow and joy of incarnate existence.

On this 40 stage journey, we shall echo the Alchemical Formula, “Solve et Coagula” or “Separate in order to Unite”

Soul will unite with its Shadow to remember its truest, and brightest Source and heal the divisions within the Self to bring peace and prosperity to our lives.

In a changing, uncertain world, where many of us have perhaps lost faith in our leaders, we can return and rely upon the ancient wisdom to lead us to the self-sovereignty of Integration with the highest and best of which we are all uniquely capable

P40:: THE MOON

Imagine the power of delving into your inner world on a daily and nightly basis for 40 Days and 40 Nights—supported by insights, rituals, and community!
P40: The MOON: is a 40-Day Jungian journaling program that you can do from anywhere at any time.

For 40 days and 40 nights, we will invoke the power and presnece of the MOON.

Even if you’re convinced you’re someone who simply doens’t have time for self-reflection, self-analysis and delving into your heart of hearts, even 20 minutes a day of P40 will change all of that.
PROJECT 40:: MY VISION EXTENDED TO YOU

I conceived of Project 40 as a way to help those who could not afford to come for regular therapy sessions. I also wanted to find a way to leverage the daily experiential tools and rituals we can all use. The Internet allows me to do this and I invest a great deal of time and energy in order to make each Project 40 journey a highly personal and “of the moment” journey. Nothing cookie-cutter or generic like you might expect with many online packages and programs.

Project 40 is extremely unique and will take you just as deep as very intensive one-on-one Jungian psychoanalytic work. If you were to actually pay my going hourly rate, for the amount of time you get in this program, it would be very costly. At 250.00 / hour and approximately 20-30 hours per person per P40 session, we would be into the thousands of dollars.

So I am happy and grateful for the Internet, as it allows us to connect in a way that is affordable for you and allows us to be engaged on a daily basis.

Project 40 has healed me and so I have decided to share it as a service to the world under the blessing of my Guru, Mata Amritanandamayi who blessed it in Amritapuri in 2009.

A Necessary Rant:

As a diehard, classically-trained psychoanalyst with eighteen years of analysis and supervision from some of the best Jungian analysts in Zurich, NYC and San Francisco, it’s painful for me to see how so much of the elegance and depth of Jung’s work is lost and misused by those with very little if any actual experience or training (not to mention their own analytic process). Jung says that the unconscious is both beautiful and terrible but not something to “play around with” or take lightly by any means. Would you throw yourself out into the middle of a dark ocean without a reliable person at the helm… or worse, without a boat or a paddle? Unless you’re trying to live the life of Pi, this is probably not wise. The danger of superficial systems that I have seen claiming to explore “shadow work” is frankly downright disturbing when you realize how tricky it is to navigate the depths of one’s unconscious without the proper clinical training, supervision and experience. This is another reason why I am trying to make this work more pervasive as a way to undo some of the damage that has been done to Jung’s work and credibility in so many “new age” and “self-help” circles that have sadly cheapened the work. A complex is something that must be worked at daily and consistently and with a skilled analyst to help you unravel the many layers. It is not something that can be magically “fixed” in one weekend, covered up with medication or removed with a juice cleanse.

You Receive:

*Daily personal emails that I create on that particular day itself (nothing is pre-baked, half-baked or it would lose the essence of tapping into the powerful messages of that particular space and time–and thus lose the power of synchronicity so fundamental to the magic of Jungian therapy).

*A creative and self-expressive journey through the essence of the Sun inhabiting the 12 signs of the Zodiac.

*A system designed to bust through any laziness, blocks, and other BS that keep you from going beyond the normal 10% of mediocre consciousness and self-awareness.

*Daily probing questions that make you stop and reflect in ways that create lasting transformation.

*A powerful collective of kindred souls seeking radical transformation and willing to do the hard work in order to uncover the limitless potential and authenticity buried in the unconscious.

*Accountability partners on a daily basis to keep you inspired and staying on top of your inner work.

*Stopping and expanding time instead of the feeling that another month just flew by without any noticeable change in your life.

*A sacred container built on 18 years of research and private practice with a classically trained Jungian therapist and astrologer.

*40 Days of powerful tools you can use and re-use for the rest of your life that will totally transform your sexuality, your relationships and most importantly your Self.

*Daily astrological guidance and reflection on the collective unconscious influences as revealed by the current astrological weather.

* Jungian insights and techniques you can utilize to delve deeper into your core Self.

* Mythical, metaphysical, and cultural symbolism and reference material related to astrology and Jungian psychology.

* Astrological insights into the moment, so as to tap into the archetypes that are potentiated through our journey,

* Sacred Space with kindred spirits willing to go as deeply as you are.

The Project 40 community, P40 partners, journaling prompts, questions, rituals, and one-on-one support are all designed to help you unleash the courage, the passion and the resources you need to tap into your authentic potential!

* Private Facebook Community with supportive peer group

* Guided Meditations and Rituals

I am thrilled to see how much Project 40 has grown and expanded over the past six years. There are only FOUR left before we reach the 40 mark and complete the series. The final seven are the pure form and expression of the planets.

As we travel through these 40 days of our inner(lunar) journey towards integration of Self and purpose, we shall also be following the mythic path trodden by the goddesses, Isis and Nephthys in the ancient mysteries of the Egyptian Temple.

 

The Sun moves into the watery world of Cancer this week but Friday’s New Moon in the cardinal water sign of the “Mother” archetype… is the official initiation of this emotional, nostalgic and nurturing cycle. Our moods, memories and melancholy run the show over the next few weeks. Give care to your inner world, needs and feelings or they could cause unexpected tantrums or defense mechanisms gone awry.

Read on for your own sign/rising sign:

Aries:

Your home is where your heart is this week, Aries. Now is the time when your inner homebody takes over and you pour your energy into your family and domestic duties. Money issues run a close second in terms of priorities during the first half of the week. You want love, beauty and less stress. Tuesday brings the official start of summer and triggers a super sentimental and nostalgic streak. Nesting and playing house is your idea of a dreamy summer this week. In fact, others will have a hard time pulling you away from your domicile. The New Moon on the 23rd is ideal for starting fresh with family members, women and mother figures, especially.

Taurus:

Get ready for a rather sappy and sentimental ride this week, Taurus. Have your journal and plenty of tissues on hand. Feelings run the show. Give yourself as plenty of outlets to express your emotions as possible. The worst thing you can do is bottle anything up during such a sensitive time. Writing is especially cathartic now as is sharing your feelings in confidence to a close and trusted friend. Women in your life seem to need you more than ever these days as well, so you’ll need someone to lean on in return. The New Moon on Friday falls in your communication zone and brings thoughts, feelings and memories into focus.

Gemini:

Finances are the big theme of the week, Gemini. You’re realizing just how much your feelings can influence your spending habits. Moods have a way of directly corresponding to your bank balance. Once you make the patterns more conscious under this week’s stars you can use this in your favor. Avoid splurging when you want comfort and channel your high energy moments into money-making mojo. Don’t let a bad mood or a need for emotional security cause you to make financial decisions that you regret. This Friday’s New Moon is ideal for resetting your relationship with your budget and overall cash flow.

Cancer:
Your feelings are taking you to new levels this week, Cancer. The planets are piling up in your sensitive stars and you’re all over the map with your moods and emotions. You might be wondering how your skin could feel so unbearably thin.. Friday’s New Moon in Cancer helps you to reset and nurture yourself. Let your inner mothering side baby you for a change. You’re so good at taking care of everyone else’s needs but you’re the one who needs you most now. Make enough time and space in your schedule to feel all of your feelings and indulge in a completely comforting meal or two.

Leo:

Your dreams are off the charts this week, Leo. The stars are stacking up in your house of sleep, plus there’s a New Moon taking place there on Friday. Your soul is screaming at you to listen now. Turn inward, meditate and track the messages coming to you from every angle. This will enhance your creativity and your sense of well being. This Friday’s New Moon invites you to start working deeply with someone who can help chart your inner world—be that a therapist, healer, shaman or coach. The time to delve into your deepest fears and insecurities will only reveal your greatest strength. Don’t feel you must do this on your own, darling. Calling in an excellent helper will only bring you greater power and status.

Virgo:

Friends and collaborators take center stage this week, Virgo. No one builds a dream team quite like you. It just comes so naturally to you to surround yourself will a stellar support system. It’s something you do best. This is an excellent week to give back. You’ve been so lucky over the past few years and you’re feeling the call to share the wealth. This is an ideal time to up your charity game. Don’t let another moment pass before you send off some money to a cause you believe in. The New Moon on Friday is extremely emotional and mushy so carve in extra time in your schedule just to feel.

Libra:

The stars are lighting up the top of your chart this week, Libra. This puts you in stellar status. You’re thinking a lot about your career and the kind of mark you wish to leave on the world. Write down all of your dreams and ambitions as you prepare for this Friday’s New Moon. Make sure your professional ambitions also nurture you. You are more like a good mother than a boss and prefer your work crew to feel more like family. Plus you genuinely care about everyone you work with which can get your feelings hurt more than you’d like to admit. Use Friday’s New Moon to get in touch with all the emotional needs you have in your career and don’t sell yourself short for one second longer, darling.

Scorpio:

You’ll enjoy this week’s emotional lift, Scorpio. Others might accuse you of being dark and stormy, but this week you’re all about potential and optimism. Long-distance travel plans are on the near horizon. Use this Friday’s New Moon to sort through all of the details. You’re ready to spread your wings and fly away from all that had been bogging you down in other people’s drama and muck. You’re also on the hunt for new sources of inspiration and stellar mentors. You’re extremely selective but that now is an excellent time for finding your next great teacher or course of learning. Keep your ears to the ground.

Sagittarius:

Nothing light and fluffy will do this week, Sadge. The hidden emotional side of your personality is taking over under the current stars. Don’t be surprised if you’re feeling extremely sensitive, sentimental and even nostalgic now. You may even feel more like being left alone than being your normal party girl self. Don’t lose heart, darling. It’s just a passing phase of cleaning out some inner muck while you prepare for a new cycle of greatness. Of course you’ll always find the humor even in the depth of sadness. The New Moon on Friday brings the changes and the rebirth you have been craving. If you’re willing to delve deep, you’ll come up shining and new.

Capricorn:

Partnerships are the big focus of the week, Capricorn. So many planets are piling in your opposite sign of Cancer now. This can make you feel rather grumpy and obsessed with your relationships. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want and need in order to keep it all in proper balance. You might feel hyper-sensitive in general but your feelings need to be communicated to avoid weird power struggles with loved ones. Don’t avoid your own feelings by overcompensating and taking care of everyone else’s needs. The New Moon on Friday falls in your relationship zone and brings the perfect reset with others. Let go of past hurts and resentments so you can truly start fresh.

Aquarius:

Do you love your life, Aquarius? If not, use this week’s stars to start with your daily schedule. Get into the nitty-gritty of your routines, rituals and habits. You can turn your entire life around by making sure you adore your rhythm. This includes your wellness and workout goals as well. It’s all in the daily details now. You also crave projects that you can lose yourself in like a good mother. If you don’t adore your co-workers, you’re in the wrong place. Use this Friday’s New Moon to make any necessary adjustments to your work and your life.

Pisces:

Life is absolutely blissful at the moment, Pisces. The stars are lining up in your love and pleasure zone this week to bring all the goodness. Plus, you’re surrounded by amazing women who just want to adore and spoil you silly. What could be better? Let yourself totally immerse in all of the support and care that you so deserve. You give so much to others in an unconditionally loving way. Now it’s time to fill yourself back up. The New Moon on Friday is perfect for counting your blessings and watching them simply multiply over the next six months.

New Moon in Gemini: Choice

 

Illustration by Elisandra Sevenstar

New Moon in Gemini Horoscopes for the Week of May 22-28th, 2017

“We are our choices.”
― Jean-Paul Sartre

“I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Today’s New Moon in Gemini reminds us of the power of choice. Choice is never easy. Duality splits our psyches in two. We flip, we flop. We second-guess. We worry. We overthink. We want to undo our decisions. We want to keep all of our options open. The stronger the Gemini influence, the more we double up and change our minds on the hour.

This New Moon reminds us that:

Our choices create our reality.

We have the chance to break it all down and decide differently. Thus the alchemical maxim, Solve et Coagula. Choose new. Get mindful rather than wishy-washy or heady. Flexibility and wit are the gifts of the Gemini influence. Often options show up in pairs to help us embrace more of a “both -and” rather than “either-or” thinking. This is the higher version of Gemini, embracing the dark and the light; the masculine and the feminine; the yes and the no; the past and the future into the present moment all the while having a keen sense of humor about it.

Venus square Pluto is the other big theme of this New Moon:

Others may try to pull you into power-struggles, jealous intrigue, manipulation and other such underworld delights. Stay in your integrity. Don’t go there. Hold the tension between your deepest “I am” principle and the values you hold nearest and dearest. If the contract, relationship or “other” refuses to play on your level of sincerity, depth and commitment, use the power of this lunation to cut the karmic connection once and for all.

Aries:

The first part of the week could feel rather low energy but you’ll be totally in touch with your true essence. Use the midweek for grounding and slowing down and listening. The New Moon arrives on Thursday and initiates a new cycle of communication, learning and mindfulness. You’ve learned some hard lessons about jumping the gun. Now it’s time to measure your words more carefully before unleashing verbal warfare or striking out impulsively with your tongue against others. Patience and reflection are the keys to finding your power this week, Aries. The weekend is perfect for reconnecting with family and spending extended time close to home.

Taurus:

Give yourself extra downtime at the start of the week, luv. Your body needs serious rest and retreat. You just wrapped up your yearly Sun cycle (and birthday season) last Saturday which could feel like a bit of an energetic crash. Plus, the Moon is waning until the end of the week. It’s a time to pause and go deep, Taurus. The New Moon on Thursday initiates a new money cycle for getting your income and expenditures in balance. Set your wishes and goals for the next six months. Make lists, plot out your financial obligations in great detail and watch the cash roll out between now and next fall.

Gemini:

You’re on the verge of brand new beginnings, Gemini. Use the first part of the week for your final clearing of the old cycle. Think back to what was happening last December and release any bits that no longer serve the next chapter on the brink of starting this Thursday. The New Moon in Gemini comes only once a year, darling. Take advantage of this major reset by starting with your mind and speech first. What you think determines what you say and your word is your power. Remember words can create or destroy worlds—especially when coming from the child of Mercury.

Cancer:

You’re still recovering from the whirlwind which has been the past few weeks (or was it months?). You need some time to catch up with yourself and indulge in extra beauty rest at the start of the week during the waning lunar cycle. In fact, you’ll be craving extra soul time all week as you start a new cycle of working with your inner world, dreams and imagination. If this requires unplugging and taking some extended time out in nature, by all means go for it. You have been working so so hard lately. You deserve a real retreat away from all of the hustle and bustle of the world.

Leo:

The recent shift in energies towards the positive continues to build momentum this week, Leo. Now that you have the North Node of Fate in your stars for the next year and a half, your star is totally on the rise. Even if your energy is lagging at the start of the week, trust that it’s just a preparation for a brand new and quite lovely cycle of social goodness and massive support from friends and colleagues. The New Moon on Thursday sets off a new cycle of parties, goals and achievement. The exciting buzz is just getting started and all eyes are on you where they belong.

Virgo:

This is the week when you start rethinking your next plan of attack on the career front. You’re forever reinventing yourself, Virgo. Use the first half of the week to dive inward, reflect and get extra rest during the waning lunar cycle. When the New Moon officially arrives at the top of your chart on Thursday, you can slowly but surely begin your ascent back to superstar status. Set your new slew of goals for the next six months to come because La Luna is blessing your every wish. You adore lists and plans and this is one of the most auspicious weeks of the year to work your magic.

Libra:

It’s time to jet, Libra. Sitting still, let alone in the same ole, same ole location is simply not an option. Choose your travel companion wisely though because you need someone with the same taste travel pace as you. Otherwise you end accommodating and resenting the change to you original travel plans. The New Moon on Thursday is also the ideal time to seek out new mentors, teachers or sources of inspiration. Is there a foreign language you’ve always wanted to master but felt too intimidated to begin? This week’s New Moon is the ideal time to do it anyway. Don’t second guess your desires and plans, darling. Indecision is your eternal enemy.

Scorpio:

It’s mind over matter this week, Scorpio. When you set your will and mental strength on defeating insecurities and fears, nothing can stop you. Your mind is in fact your greatest asset at the moment so use it wisely. When your intensity turns to obsession or negativity, your powers work against you. It’s up to you to redirect your passion towards what you want— not what you fear. The New Moon on Thursday invites you to cultivate a serious mindfulness practice. If your meditation practice has fallen off or remains obsolete, it’s time to shift priorities. A centered mind gives you the kind of resourcefulness no one can touch.

Sagittarius:

Relationships are your all and all this week, Sagittarius. This goes for all of your significant one-to-ones, not just romantic interests or spouses. You’ve been learning the hard way recently to “hold your horses” (pun intended). and the patience is totally paying off in your love and creative ventures. The New Moon on Thursday is the ideal time to start anew with someone you adore and wish to make a more central priority in your life going forward over the next six months. If this requires you extending the first note of peace and forgiveness, don’t let pride stand in your way.

Capricorn:

No one works harder than you do, Capricorn. This week you’re living embodiment of what it means to push yourself to your ultimate limit. That doesn’t mean you should throw all self-care and rejuvenation out the window in favor of getting everything accomplished on your list. If the past few weeks taught you nothing else but the necessity of enforcing pauses and breaks to recover from your go-go-go mentality. The New Moon on Thursday is ideal for starting a new fitness or wellness routine that should stick around at least until December if you commit yourself wholeheartedly, darling.

Aquarius:

Romance and pleasure hit the high notes starting this week, Aquarius. If you’ve started to worry that your love life was becoming extinct, fear no more. The return of affection is in the air compliments of the New Moon on Thursday. It’s imperative to listen to your heart and not your head for the next few years. If logic tries to overrule your desires, refuse to succumb to the old ways. You deserve pleasure and play just like everyone else, and this does not mean helping everyone but yourself. This is the chance for you to return to the childlike innocence and joy that makes life more dream than drudgery—as it should be.

Pisces:

A fabulous and fresh new beginning is in the works this week, Pisces. It’s quite monumental too because it starts at the inner level and will build up over the next six months. You’re also thinking of ways to creatively alter your domestic realm compliments of this Thursday’s New Moon in your home sector. You have so many ideas and plans that it might feel a bit scattered until you sit down and make a very detailed list. One of your favorite creative outlets is decorating and interior design. This is the perfect week to indulge in redoing your sanctuary.

Full Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes

Weekly horoscopes 8-14th May

Aries:

You are back on the fast track now, Aries—all systems go! All of the retrograde diversions are finally easing up and allowing you to feel like a human again. Projects and goals that were going nowhere fast are starting to pick up some momentum, especially with communication and creativity. This Wednesday’s Full Moon is bringing all the sexy back to your world. Get ready to go deep, darling. The extreme side of your nature is kicking in and causing all or nothing behaviors. It’s all too tempting to cut some ties that feel too mediocre for your liking.

Taurus:

Passion rules your world this week, Taurus. The hidden side of your peaceful nature is actually quite intense and all of those feelings are quickly bubbling up to the surface now. You could surprise yourself. Wednesday’s Full Moon highlights your relationship zone and brings partnership themes to a fever pitch. Your time is in extremely high demand and you hate saying no to anyone. If you feel pushed to socialize past your comfort zone expect your inner grump to kick in. So much is changing despite your best attempts to resist and cling to the known. If you let go and trust that the universe has your back, you’ll sail through the shifting landscape and even enjoy the newness.

Gemini:

Your schedule is full-on this week, Gemini. Work is demanding all that you’ve got and then some. Mercury Retrograde caused a lot of delays and now you’re in extreme catchup mode trying to work through all the kinks and untangle all of the crossed wires in communication. Plus, your projects are pushing you to work at an accelerated pace. Take deeper breaths than normal and schedule as many breaks on the hour as possible. Pacing yourself is everything now. Wednesday’s Full Moon is when many work projects culminate and you possibly hit your wall. Keep your schedule a bit lighter around the middle of the week in case you need recovery time. Don’t compromise your health by pushing yourself to work all hours.

Cancer:

Love is your answer to everything this week, Cancer. The Full Moon in Scorpio is coming mid-week and lighting up your romance and pleasure zone. Whatever happened starting last November in your love life could be reaching it’s finale or ending. The previous Venus Retrograde phase asked you to get really clear on what you want and don’t want in relationships. You’ll either be taking your current flame to the next level or perhaps letting go and mourning your loss now. Either way you will come to a firm decision, even if it feels extreme or dramatic. It’s your truth now.

Leo:

Let your inner brooding homebody take over this week, Leo. The Full Moon is pushing all of your intense feelings to the surface now. There’s a high probability won’t feel like being around other humans. until the weekend. You’re also recalibrating how much you want to give to others and how much you need to hold for your own creativity and life force. Don’t feel guilty if the balance shifts more towards you for a change. . Introspection is everything for you now. Go ahead and unplug from the online world so you can level deeper into your inner world for a spell

Virgo:

You are detective and psychologist in one this week, Virgo. You refuse to waste time in small talk or mindless gossip. You want the bottom line and the real talk now. You’ve survived Mercury Retrograde, and are slowly trying to trust that you can speak your mind freely and clearly now, without being misquoted and misunderstood. You’ll also adore how much more articulate you feel. Wednesday’s Full Moon lights up your thinking and texting zone and inspires your mind to go deep. Expect to be bombarded with endless inquiries and problems for solving. Friends always come to you for the best advice.

Libra:

Financial matters are reaching their fulcrum this week, Libra. You’ll get crystal clear on whatever feels out of balance. Letting go of extremes in either savings or spending is what is being asked of you now. Emotional spending binges feel amazing in the moment but leave you totally stressed out after the fact. Wednesday’s Full Moon lights up your money zone to an almost obsessive degree. It’s easy to feel out of balance at the moment, but it wont’ last. You can pull yourself back from any dramatic expenditures with just a little restraint and re-budgeting. You always find your way back.

Scorpio:

Feelings take over your entire world this week, Scorpio. The extreme part of your nature is highlighted compliments of the Full Moon in your stars on Wednesday. Any emotions you have been building up and not expressing could come out in an exaggerated fashion now (and possibly inopportune time). This is not a time for repression of your words, thoughts or feelings by any means. Have loads of outlets to channel your extreme sensitivity. Don’t let your moods or whims get the better of you. When in doubt, hold off on the action. The energy is way too charged under this lunation.

Sagittarius:

This is the week when you’re like “I’m out”, Sagittarius. In other words, you are long overdue for some rest and rejuvenation. The Full Moon on Wednesday lights up your house of sleep and dreams. You also need time to work through all of the intense feelings building up. Book a getaway in the middle of the week or at least take a day off to sit with your feelings. You do best when you get time in nature, preferably a wide-open field with your favorite animals strolling about. The Moon moves into your sassy stars by the end of the week. You’ll be back to your extraverted ways soon enough.

Capricorn:

Friends want all of you this week, Capricorn. You are in high demand on the social scene and this competes with the part of you that wants to rule the world. Setting limits and saying no is your must this week. Boundaries save your sanity. As long as you are clear on your priorities, you can’t go wrong. When you take time out for your own self-care you are less likely to burn out. Wednesday’s Full Moon lights up your house of goals and accomplishments. This is when you start seeing the rewards for all of your hard work.

Aquarius:

Your career is blowing up this week, Aquarius. Thank your lucky stars and a powerful little Full Moon lighting up the top of your chart this week. Your status is off the charts now so push your bigger dreams. When your popularity is this good, you don’t want to lose time. You’re also feeling more courageous than ever and can break through fears that normally keep you paralyzed. Your success is well deserved. Now you can build on the momentum you started last November. As long as you are feeling passionately about your worldly pursuits, nothing can stop you.

Pisces:

Life lights you up like a gorgeous poem or song this week. When inspiration is this strong, your only obstacle is figuring out where you want to start. Travel fever has the biggest pull compliments of the Full Moon lighting up your long-distance adventure zone. Emotions are also running to dramatic extremes so respect your own sensitivity and that of others. There’s no need to take things personally, even if you can’t help it. Sit out the reactive need to get on the battlefield. It’s probably not worth the fight. Friends will be pulling you in a thousand directions over the weekend. You don’t have to be all things to all people, Pisces.

New Moon in Taurus Horoscopes

The Divine loves you very dearly, deeply. Once you know this, you will relax.–Tathaastu

This New Moon is being pegged as one of the most fertile and potentially prosperous manifestation moons of 2017. It’s influenced by exalted Venus in Pisces (where Venus does her best and most sublime work)… just before she moves back into feisty, me-me-and more me- Aries. Love, sweetness, forgiveness and connecting the earthly to the divine are all in the beautiful realms of high probability…. if we align ourselves to the LOVE. We’ve certainly had our fair share of lessons around playing out childhood wounds and projections (Venus Rx-Chiron-Saturn) in our most intimate relationships. Once we move through the fear and deeper into our own center with an open heart, we prepare the ground for something proper to grow. The Taurus New Moon seeds the solid foundation for lasting loyalty and devotion to our deepest values.

NEW MOON IN TAURUS HOROSCOPES:

Weekly 24-30TH OF APRIL

Aries:

You’re ready to mellow and ground this week, Aries. That might require mastering the painful but necessary lesson of biding your time and letting go of control. The key is slowing down, listening and not pushing things. The New Moon on Wednesday comes to teach you patience. It also brings with it a brand new chapter in your money arena. The more you take your time and build up your resources, one step at a time without rushing or forcing anything, the more solid is your foundation. You can easily be a total money mogul when you want to be, darling.

Taurus:

All is ready for a major reset this week, Taurus. But first, you must clear out all of the old dross, attachments and comfort zones that were keeping you stuck in a rut. The recent Venus Retrograde helped you completely refine your values and know your worth. You will no longer settle or sacrifice for anything less. The New Moon on Wednesday in your stars is the perfect reset to and invitation to call forth your wishes for the next six months. Make a list and keep it close to you. Check back on the progress of your manifestation next October-November.

Gemini:

No more running around town scattering your energies, Gemini. And no more beating your head against a wall trying to finish a thousand things at once. You’re starting to learn the power of stillness and centering this week. It does wonders for your creativity too. Less is more is the lesson of the week. The New Moon on Wednesday requires extra beauty rest and dream/soul time. Get to bed earlier and let yourself have a sense of sleeping in and indulging in a little snooze button action. It’s time to get out of your head and into your body with a consistent exercise routine.

Cancer:

It’s all about your social world this week, Cancer. Your friends, collaborators and kindred spirits will clamoring for your undivided attention. You’ve also got your long-term goals on your mind. The New Moon on Wednesday is the ideal time for plotting and planning out your next round of five, ten and even fifteen year plans. The long range vision really helps put your present situation into proper perspective. Do you like how you are spending your time? If not, use this week’s New Moon plus the ample amounts of retrograde planets to make any necessary adjustments to your daily schedule.

Leo:

Career takes top priority this week, Leo. There are some crucial decisions to make and yet you are feeling more indecisive than ever. That’s because there are still so many planets retrograde causing more of a review than a clear vision of the future. Plus, the Moon is very dark this week in her waning cycle which makes for lower energy and a sense of not quite being able to see what is on the other side of this closing cycle. Wednesday brings the New Moon and a grounded sense of new goals will slowly but surely emerge. Just be patient and don’t rush or force your bigger plans. It’s all happening at the perfect time.

Virgo:

Patience will get you everywhere this week, Virgo. You are the master when it comes to feeling out the right moment and not impulsively acting against your own wishes. You have that innate sense of magical timing that others are so envious of. The New Moon on Wednesday invites you to ground back into your highest truth and all that elevates and inspires you. Slow down enough to really listen to what your next path of adventures will be. You’re ready to plot your next six months of travel plans, but don’t make anything concrete until May when Mercury (your ruling planet) comes out of retrograde.

Libra:

The winds of change are moving everything around you this week, Libra. But the shifts are slow, subtle and easier to integrate than the recent chaos. Just remember to breathe, eat at regular intervals and keep up with your current exercise regime, and you’ll flow right through this new chapter with ultimate grace and ease as only can do. The New Moon on Wednesday is just the beginning of a set of alterations to your current status quo. Be open, willing and ready to embrace the brand new. When resistance kicks in, just relinquish your fears and think of the beauty to come.

Scorpio:

Recent relationship stress and drama is settling down and giving way to more sweetness and connection, Scorpio. You’ll be happy to know that you can finally relax into a slower and more grounded rhythm within your partners. The conflicts are subsiding and you’re getting really clear and what you value and where you need to be valued in return. The New Moon on Wednesday falls in your opposite stars of Taurus and reminds you how powerful it is to just mellow out and listen. Sometimes silence is golden and listening, your best friend. Try these and watch how your relationships significantly improve.

Sagittarius:

Your ready for regular routine and a steady rhythm this week, darling. The more consistent and grounded your daily schedule, the better to anchor your high-flying tendencies to take on more than you can handle. You need something to balance you and keep you somewhat rooted to reality, or nothing gets accomplished. The New Moon on Wednesday is the ideal time for setting your new schedule and creating a kind of plan that really works for you in the long haul. In other words, think of a schedule that is both viable and sustainable. Consistency is key for you now.

Capricorn:

Your love life is your reason for living this week, Capricorn. You’re being asked to get really quiet and still and listen to what it is your heart truly desires. You’ve definitely had a big preview of what you don’t want during the recent Venus Retrograde. Now that you’ve had a chance to re-evaluate everything, you are crystal clear on what works and what doesn’t work for you both romantically and creatively. Wednesday’s New Moon asks you to make your wish list for the next six months. Write down everything you want more of between now and October, darling.

Aquarius:

Let yourself become a total homebody this week, Aquarius. Nothing feels better than getting super mellow and kicking back in the sanctuary of your own making. Others might accuse you of being antisocial for the time being, but even the most gregarious of signs needs her time to break from the crowds. The New Moon on Wednesday sets the stage for dreaming and scheming up your next six months of home improvement or perhaps even relocation ideas. In any case, it’s hard for you to think beyond your immediate environment right now. Listen to your body as it is screaming for you to slow down and smell the flowers.

Pisces:

You are communication central this week, Pisces. Although Mercury is still Retrograde, you will have some amazing breakthroughs in word, thought and action. The more you slow down your speech and deeply listen with new ears, the more insights come pouring in. The New Moon on Wednesday asks you to have the conversation differently by speaking less and listening harder. What thought patterns and ruts in your texting or speech style have caused you trouble? Now is the time to create some serious traction with how you use the power of your words to heal or harm, Pisces. The choice is yours, darling.

New Moon in Aries Horoscopes

March 27th to April 2nd

Aries:

Let a whole new cycle begin, Aries! The New Moon on Monday falls in your very own stars which means it’s all you, all day, every day this week. Others might call that selfish, you call it essential. Set your wishes for the next six months of action-packed excitement and adventure. Your speedy mind will begin to mellow once the communication planet (Mercury) leaves your constellation on Friday. Rather than jumping to assumptions in conversations, you’re more likely to be deliberate and methodical in your thinking process. It can feel frustrating at times but bodes well for increasing harmony and understanding with others.

Taurus:

It’s all about the new this week, Taurus! As much as you’re known to resist change, you’ll actually adore this surge of inspiration. You were reaching your limit with all that felt stuck and stagnant over the past few weeks, anyway. The New Moon of spring officially arrives on Monday highlighting your house of sleep and dreams. You’ll enjoy extra beauty rest and time to let your imagination drift and wander. Mercury, the messenger planet moves into your peaceful and patient stars on Friday. You’ll appreciate the slower pace for conversing and processing. The only caveat is the upcoming Mercury Retrograde next week. Prepare now for upcoming delays and redo’s.

Gemini:

So much is happening in the stars this week, Gemini (just the way you like it!) First, is the New Moon taking place on Monday kicking off a brand new social cycle for you. In fact, this is just the beginning of a rather thrilling and inspiring six-month cycle of new projects, friendships and long-term goals. You’re on fire with ideas for new launches. You just need the right people to create and collaborate with you. The other big news of the week is that your guiding planet, Mercury is changing signs and thus your entire mental focus is shifting. Get ready to go from fire, impulse and speed to a slow and low tempo.

Cancer:

New sources of inspiration are on deck this week, Cancer.. The New Moon is happening this Monday and bringing all of the excitement and fresh spark you need to get some fabulous new projects burning. You’ll have all the ammo you need to take your career to the next level. You are more willing to take risks now as procrastination is no longer the obstacle and enemy. You’re being fueled by a sense of urgency which works in your favor. Communication is the only arena that might be a bit slow and off right now. Mercury, the planet governing texting, talking and traveling is changing signs and preparing to go retrograde. This means double check details and plans.

Leo:

Travel is on your brain this week in a major way, Leo. Even if those plans are simply at the seed level for starters, trust that you are about to embark on a big jet-setting spree between now and October. The New Moon on Monday brings your dreams of adventure to light. Use the next few weeks to research, but perhaps wait until May to finalize any concrete plans (unless you have an excellent cancellation/change policy). The planet ruling transport (Mercury) is going out of phase soon and creating obstructions and unexpected changes to itineraries for the next month.

Virgo:

Change is in the air this week, Virgo. You’ve been incubating a lot of powerful material over the last six months and you’re ready to re-emerge with the new you. The New Moon on Monday is just the beginning of your unveiling. Once you put your mind to it, nothing can stop you from major transformation. That said, your ruling planet (Mercury) is slowing down plus changing signs on Friday. This has you thinking of the big picture, and even scheming up your next set of long-distance travel plans. Take your time and check the details at least twice.

Libra:

All is shifting around your current love story this week, Libra. The New Moon on Monday lands in your partnership zone and invites you to set your wishes on your ideal mate or relationship dynamics. If you feel like the reciprocity has been dysfunctional in your one-to-ones, now is the time to reset and strike more balance. The ongoing Venus Retrograde is teaching you how to be more assertive in getting what you want and need from partners. Communication gets a bit slower and more stubborn after Friday. You’ll enjoy the more mellow pace but may have a harder time getting your point across the first time.

Scorpio:

There’s a New Moon coming to you this Monday, Scorpio. It’s highlighting your workload, health and asking you to tidy up all of those loose ends this week. If you’ve got a ton of new projects you want to get off the ground, use this lunation to finally make a working list. Start with a slow but consistent action plan. The communication planet (Mercury) is moving into your opposite stars of Taurus on Friday. Now your attention shifts to relationship-driven communication. The best way to improve the quality of understanding between you and loved ones is to accentuate your listening skills. Speak less so you can hear more.

Sagittarius:

Your love life is back on fiery track this week, Sadge! The New Moon on Monday is ideal for setting your desire into motion around romance and pleasure. There’s a new surge of inspiration and excitement around all of it that you’ve been desperately waiting for. You’re finally starting to pull out of a recent slump and getting back to your fun and sassy self. The only downside to all of this exuberance is the slow down with communication and work (unless you want a break of course)! Plus, you’re feeling the need to get more methodical and grounded with your daily rituals and wellness routines.

Capricorn:

There’s a New Moon on Monday bringing passion and impulsiveness to the scene, Capricorn. You prefer strategic and methodical approaches, but the times call for a dose of immediacy now. This also requires setting your fears aside and just going for what you want without hesitation. If you want to slow down and take your time, apply the cautions side of your personality in communication for the next few weeks. Mercury, the messenger planet, is changing signs and putting a more mellow approach to talking and texting. After a few weeks of rushed and blunt speech patterns, the new tempo is mellow and patient.

Aquarius:

Communication is your end all be all this week, Aquarius. You have a lot on your mind and your agenda to boot. Work is piling up and messages are demanding more immediate attention. Use this constant rush of information to inspire you, yet leave plenty of pauses to avoid burnout. The New Moon on Monday is your annual reset with your mindset and approach to communication in general. Trade off the impulse to blurt your opinion without considering the consequences of how it might affect the listener. Now is the time to stop and reconsider the impact your words have on the ones you love.

Pisces:

The New Moon  is here to kick off the week this Monday. The focus is on your money and financial dealings, Pisces. Now is ideal for getting your accounts in order and making new budgets to realize some of your bigger dreams. Taking immediate action on even the scarier details is advised as well—no avoidance schemes, darling. The sooner you dive in, the lighter you’ll feel. The communication planet, Mercury is shifting signs and supporting your conversations and learning skills over the next few weeks (starting on Friday). Your thoughts are more creative, grounded and beautiful than ever. Share the loveliness.
