New Moon in Gemini: Choice

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.

FULL MOON MOROCCO RETREAT

 

 

 

 

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.

Weekly Horoscopes for the Week of Feb 12-18th, 2017

Mars and Venus in Aries…. Let’s get into physical!

 

Weekly Horoscopes: 12-18th, 2017
Aries:

It’s so good to be an Aries this week! You’re red hot with the sizzling combo of both Mars and Venus doing your bidding at the moment. Plus, the lunar influence supports all things partnership and romance, especially during the first half of the week. The second half of the week is about going deep and seeking truth. Finally, you’ll be so ready to check out and vacay after the new Sun cycle starts on Saturday. The next few weeks are all about escapism and beaches. It will be nearly impossible to focus on work or anything mundane. You’ll need loads of glamorous distractions to see you through, darling.

Taurus:

The stars are super sweet just in time for V-Day, Taurus! Just be sure you don’t get so caught up in work that you forget to book time out for your beau. Too much work and no play, makes for one grumpy bull. You’re feeling crazy-pushed to finish everything as fast as possible which could lead to burnout. You’ll be desperate for some deep one-on-one time by Wednesday when the Moon enters your opposite stars so steer clear of the crowds. The big solar shift takes place this Saturday when the Sun highlights your social world and long-term goals. You are after the big dreams this year and nothing less!

Gemini:

February has some fabulous star alignments, especially true for V-day! The Moon is lighting up your romance zone right on Feb 14th and bringing all of the candy hearts, flowers and presents—lucky you, Gemini! Work steals you away during the second part of the week, so get the celebrations on the calendar first and foremost. The biggest news of the week arrives on Sunday as the Sun moves right on up to the top of your chart to shine brightly on your career. You will be the “it” girl for the next few weeks.

Travel fever hits hard this week, Leo. You need your time in the sunlight after all, darling. The stars are in absolute support of you jetting to someplace warm, exotic and far, far away. Before you pack, be sure to square away and all necessary communications with bosses, co-workers or assistants.

Expect to rethink everything once Jupiter goes retrograde in your house of communication on Sunday.

Virgo:

You’re no delicate flower this week, Virgo. You might even surprise yourself with how little your tolerance and patience are for anyone’s pushy ways. You will absolutely defend your right to freedom and self-expression no matter what this week. The impulsive and feisty side of your nature could catch others off guard but it works for you. You’re more action and less talk now. You have unequivocal support from the stars to stand up for what you believe in and be the authority. You understand the power of using your authority for higher service which is why you seem to keep getting more of it.

Libra:

Relationships get fiery this week, Libra. As much as you’ll do anything to retain the peace, this week you have no recourse but to go to battle. It will bring the balance you seek. Plus, your loved ones respect you when you finally step out of the passive zone and get real. You can’t always be the one to compromise without severe consequences to your own happiness and wellbeing. Plus, if you’ve been too accommodating for too long, your temper will eventually snap. This is the kind of week where that’s highly likely too. Plus, Jupiter is going retrograde in your stars Sunday. Watch for reversals.

Scorpio:

This is the week when you become a total workaholic but love every second of it, Scorpio. It might seem like overkill to others, but when you’re as passionate about what you do as you are, it’s a love affair with your work. Communication is extremely loaded this week, so use extreme care and caution in every word choice. More importantly, check the energy and intention behind your speech. People will feel the vibes behind the words first, even while texting. Jupiter goes retrograde in your sleep and retreat zone starting Sunday. Take that as a major hint: vacation necessary!

Sagittarius:

Your love life is full of hot, fiery goodness this week, Sagittarius! The stars are bringing the romance and creativity in large supply now. Life should feel more like a love story than a problem to be solved for a lovely change. Trust your raw instincts and just go for what you want. It will be hard to stop you now anyway. Patience (lack of) could be your only pitfall this week. Your current sense of urgency can work either for or against you, depending on timing. Just be sure you don’t jump the gun before doing a little background check on your latest obsession. At least get a second opinion from your mates. You’re more impulsive than ever now when it comes to giving your heart away.

Capricorn:

This is a convergence week of passion, intensity and clarity. Your mind is working overtime to put all of the pieces together, but the resulting epiphanies make it all worthwhile. If you are giving yourself headaches from thinking too much, put the planning and plotting on pause so you can get back into balance and into your body. In fact, self-care is primary this week. If you’re out of touch with yourself, you have nothing left to give. You might be rethinking or revamping your career goals after Sunday when Jupiter goes retrograde at the top of your chart.

Aquarius:

Communication is all consuming this week, Aquarius. You have so much to say and very little patience or restraint when it comes to waiting your turn to speak. Plus, your words could fly right out of your mouth with rash intensity despite your best attempts to remain somewhat civilized. Your best bet is to write out the raw and aggressive version of what you have to say first, and then edit out any of the offensive bits. Your words can hit hard but you don’t want your intended audience to feel like you’ve personally accosted them with your speech. There’s a balance and you will find it. After Friday, you’ll be able to access the perfect blend of sweet and sassy. Sunday, Jupiter goes retrograde in your travel zone. No wonder you’ve been thinking of revisiting some of your favorite destinations.

Pisces:

Money is taking top priority again this week, Pisces. The brilliant part is that you’re completely transforming your relationship to your finances for the better. When you mix your incredible creativity and ingenuity with a determination to build up your assets, you’re a serious force to be reckoned with. You’re also more willing to take risks than usual under the current stars. You know that if you want the big money pay-off, you have to put yourself out there and be as original and eccentric as possible. You’re an innovator at heart, darling. Your ruling planet, Jupiter goes retrograde this Sunday for the next few months. This invites major personal changes and introspection between now and summer.
