Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Happy birthday Sagittarius! Jupiter brings fun and excitement to your romantic life! But make sure you choose a partner who appreciates your passion and straightforwardness. You might also rediscover your love of creativity, sports, and other types of playfulness. Meditate on longstanding family resentments and you can have deep healing. Be cautious with finances since Mercury is retrograde late this month. Wait until all facts are clear!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Mercury retrogrades in your sign, deepening your intuition, especially as it joins with Pluto’s powerful insights! Give extra time to meditation, even if just five minutes each day to allow connection with your inner wisdom to grow. You’ll be able to solve frustrating problems, conquer deep fears and even have resentments lifted. Health-wise, take a good look at inflammatory foods or habits (like smoking/vaping). Huge improvements are possible!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Jupiter moving back into Aries picks up your mood! Work with positive imagery and affirmations. Meditations will be especially fruitful and powerful since Mercury is retrograding as well. In order to be upbeat, you need to cleanse your mind of old anger, fear, and stress. Addressing negativity creates space for positivity. Don’t think you’re going to attract “bad stuff” by confronting all that and letting it go. Also, Neptune moving direct clears the way for financial success!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
The Full Moon can make holidays challenging for families. You often hide your feelings to protect others from harshness, but Mars with its Full Moon can make you blurt the truth! Meditate extra and take frequent “bathroom breaks” to breathe deeply in private if irritated with others. In easier news, money flows freely as Jupiter moves into Aries! And as Neptune moves direct, you’ll feel tuned into your intuition and creativity.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The powerful Mercury retrograde with Pluto combined with Neptune moving direct supercharge your intuition! Be faithful to your meditation practice. Even a constant five minutes a day builds a reliable pipeline to your source of inner wisdom! You can also have career options that give you amazing prestige and financial gain. The Full Moon early this month can make you snappy, so breathe before you speak!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Jupiter’s change of sign, along with Mercury retrograde reconnects you with your spiritual passion! Give extra effort to meditation, yoga, and other practices and you’ll yield amazing results. You can have insights into many life problems. Your health can improve since stress will decrease. You’ll feel calm and centered, yet energized. Financial breakthroughs can also happen with the extra potent Full Moon!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The Full Moon in your sign is extra feisty and edgy, so remember to meditate and breathe before blurting things out! Yet it can also help you focus on goals and feel passionate and optimistic. You can even start a new sexy relationship! Neptune moving direct clarifies issues at work along with possible career directions. Mercury retrograde deepens your insights, so slowing your mind with a “sacred pause” easily helps you tune into inner wisdom!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Jupiter brings amazing job opportunities! Keep visualizing and affirming the best outcomes and watch results manifest! It’s nice to feel the Universe is on your side! The Full Moon asks you to take care of yourself in terms of food choices, meditation, yoga, and self-care. Don’t be “too busy” to nurture your body and mind. Mercury retrograde puts pressure on relationships. Speak your truth no matter what. Authenticity deepens intimacy.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Be kind to yourself as Mercury turns retrograde. You might battle perfectionism and “mean girl” thoughts. Make lists of what you’re doing right and what’s amazing about you! Dwell on those qualities for better mental and physical health. Neptune moving direct clarifies confusion in intimate relationships, especially issues about money or sexuality. The Full Moon helps you set and maintain healthy boundaries.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Neptune moves direct, clearing illusions about relationships. You’re not bitchy if you’re finding problems that need to be addressed! Mercury retrograde wants you to speak your truth, set limits, and vocalize your desires! You deserve to feel safe to ask for what you need. A similar pattern may emerge at work. Don’t allow authority figures to treat you disrespectfully. More offers can come that allow you to shine!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Jupiter’s change of signs can bring a wonderful relationship that matches your spirituality and is also fulfilling and fun! Open your heart to the future by letting go of hurtful past memories as Mercury is retrograde. Examine emotional walls that have built up from painful limiting beliefs. Puzzling health issues can clear up and could even be related to those old toxic thoughts. This month’s Full Moon reinvigorates your meditation practice. If your mind feels busy or even frantic, it can be part of a “mental detox”, so forge ahead without self-judgment.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Jupiter into Aries helps you respect your body. Eat well! Exercise in fun ways! Indulge yourself with power naps if possible! Affirmations and positive imagery are especially powerful now with this month’s Mercury retrograde. You can have insightful dreams and meditations. Be careful of sudden ideas about financial investments, however. Wait until late January to make bold money moves.
