Reality check: Without rationalizing or embroidering the facts, sit down and take a moment to recognize the confusion and angst of the past few weeks because it’s time to move forward. It’s time to do a realistic assessment, and make an action plan. This is the week to formulate strategies and establish goals. Goals are invaluable because they give you a clearer focus on what’s important. They give you more clarity in your decision-making; and they make decision making easier. They give you better control over your future; and they give you a sense of purpose. My goal this week is to get dressed (at least, week days). But something I wonder about. Have people who wear pajamas in public given up on life? Or are they living life to the fullest?
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week you are goal oriented and articulate. You’re keen to share your ideas and probably boss a few people around. (Hey, somebody’s gotta do it.) You might do some kind of a reassessment about a friend or an acquaintance or someone in the group who is older than you. You might appreciate this person’s advice – or not. That’s your call. You are definitely someone who does not like to be told what to do. You’re an Aries, you’re a warrior, and you need freedom of action! Friday’s New Moon is the perfect time to set goals. It’s the only New Moon in your sign all year, plus it will get energy from your ruler Mars. Don’t miss this opportunity. What do you want to achieve?
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Because you’re in a sensible frame of mind, this is a great week for research and some serious soul-searching. Get ready for Friday’s New Moon, which is the perfect time to make serious goals for your future. You’re grounded and in touch with your reality. (You will suffer no fools.) Your ambition is aroused and you want to streamline your efforts and do exactly what is necessary. Eliminate whatever is superfluous because it drains your energy, and it’s a distraction. Plan on a fun, friendly weekend after the New Moon. This will be the perfect time to chat with friends and catch up on what’s happening. Sunday will be spontaneous and exciting!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re enjoying warm conversations with others, especially younger people. However, this is also an excellent week, for you to make goals for the future. You have all week to think about this because Friday’s New Moon is the perfect time to make a commitment to new ways of doing things, which will help you achieve your objectives. You’re serious about travel plans or higher education, legal matters or issues related to your medical well-being. Meanwhile, with Jupiter at the top of your chart, you look fabulous to others! This is a blessing that will help you this year. Since this occurs only once every 12 years – make the most of it!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering light, which makes everyone, especially bosses, parents, teachers and the police see you through admiring eyes. You look great to them even if you don’t do anything special. This happens once a year and it definitely an advantage for you! Now is the time to ask for the permission or approval that you want. Meanwhile, think about what you want to achieve this year because Friday’s New Moon is an excellent time to make goals. (See All signs above for the advantages of making goals.) This is a good week to clarify debt and matters related to taxes and money back from the government. Ka-ching!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You need to get outta Dodge. You want a change of pace that is not only stimulating but also replenishing and restorative. (It’s hard out there without your towel.) This week you can make goals or better define the boundaries and expectations of your closest relationships. If you want to initiate some new rules or new ways of doing things, have this discussion on Friday at the time of the New Moon. In addition to thoughts about your closest relationships, you can also make long-range plans for the future this week. (You might want to know that you will be travelling much more in 2023. This will also be a year full of publishing opportunities.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Because you are ambitious to achieve a lot, this is a busy and demanding week. You will work hard, even to the point of delegating to others. You feel a bit stern this week, which is why you will be less inclined to show kindness and compassion to those who don’t deserve it, in your mind. Tough love. Expect to have a strong focus on shared property, taxes, debt and issues related to the wealth and resources of others, including inheritances. You might feel kindly toward (or even attracted to) an authority figure at work or someone who is older or more experienced. It will please you to make your workspace more efficient and attractive.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
With the Sun opposite your sign now, you are more tired than usual, which means you need more sleep. Keep this in mind. Meanwhile, your focus on your kids continues to be strong. In fact, many of you have increased responsibilities with kids at this time. Others will have a similar focus on sports related activities, the arts, vacations, financial speculation and social outings. You’re making plans that involve strategy, effort and work. (Even a picnic requires sandwiches and a blanket.) Think about how you can improve your closest relationships and partnerships; also, how can improve your relations with your kids? Your possessions are just stuff. People are priceless.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You’re in the frame of mind to get things done. You are motivated and earnest. You know that you have a long-haul ahead of you and you’re prepared to meet it. You’re ready to work efficiently because you have high expectations for yourself. In particular, you want to reorganize things at home. We’re talking major changes – not just sweeping floors. More likely pushing furniture around! This might entail renovations, redecorating projects or major repairs. Naturally, this could trigger angst and tension at home or with family members. When this kind of anger arrives, remember that patience is the antidote to anger. It always is.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This is a playful, lighthearted time for you! You might be excited about something related to your kids. Or you might be excited about social occasions, the arts or a fun, getaway vacation. Whatever the case, you’re pumped with energy. Meanwhile, you are focused on certain issues that affect your day-to-day life as well as your dealings with neighbours, siblings and relatives. This is an excellent week to study and set goals. It’s a great week to write and explore new ideas. You might teach others or you might be the student. Now is the time to define your expectations for the future and decide how you can begin working towards attaining those goals. Let’s get ‘er done!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your focus on home and family, and your private life continues to be strong. Many of you are involved more than usual with a parent. However, financial issues are important right now. They could relate to your earnings and your moneymaking ideas. Or perhaps, they relate to major expenditures. Whatever the case, you are more concerned with your cash flow at this time. Perhaps your goal setting will be more related to how you handle your money and your possessions, so that you feel you’re getting the best use out of what you own. After all, what you own should help you and work for you – and not be a burden. Obviously!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
There’s a lot going on right now in your life, which is why you have a need to communicate to others and tell it like it is. You want to talk some things through with someone — in part, to get them clarified in your own mind. (It helps to hear your own thoughts verbalized out loud. Sometimes you realize, “I don’t even agree with me!”) You have a strong sense of purpose this week, which will translate into a desire to reestablish things and ground yourself so that you feel more in control. You also want to clarify boundaries in a realistic way. This is because you intend to forge ahead on your own terms instead of getting bogged down by other people’s toxicity. Well done!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a curious time because in one way, you are out there flying your colours, and concerned with finances, earning money, moneymaking ideas and dealing with your possessions. That’s a lot! However, in addition to this, so much is going on behind the scenes. Oh yes, you’re having serious shower conversations with yourself. You’re making plans, testing strategies and deciding who to keep close and who to keep at a distance. It’s all about survival and when it comes to survival you come first. It’s that simple. That’s why parents are instructed to put the oxygen mask on themselves first before they put it on their children in an emergency on a plane. You are your best resource!
