The night sky grows darker each day this week until it vanishes as a new moon on Friday. As the moon turns away to rest, you are left to find your own path forward and it’s frightfully easy to lose your way without a guiding light ahead. Who or what is your guiding light, Aries? This week, look to someone (of any gender) who displays strong divine feminine energy- they can help you navigate the days ahead. And when the troubles of the real world are piling up on your shoulders, you can find peace within yourself- a calming meditation, smoke cleanse, or sound bath might be just what you need to refresh. Pay close attention to your dreams- there is a message there that is important for your spiritual development. If you need companionship this week, look to a Leo- they are walking a similar path to you.

Pick up those heels, Taurus- you’ve got some ground to cover! As the moon shrinks in the skies above, there’s a sense of preparation and anticipation for things soon to come. On Friday, the moon vanishes, entering a time of rest- and for you, this is hitting the reset button. Expect a sense of novelty and new beginning as the weekend arrives, opening doors of opportunity and helping you to see new possibilities, especially when it comes to business and financial matters. Just don’t jump the gun- with Jupiter still in reverse in your sign, it’s better to think before you act. Uranus, also in retrograde in your sign, may raise the bar and make it hard to get started- but once you get going, momentum should keep you moving forward. This week is a good time to redecorate your space. Consider putting money away in your savings account if you can spare it- you’ll be grateful for it further down the line.

Things are still a little topsy-turvy right now, Gemini, so it’s a good idea to leave some extra space in your schedule. Give yourself a bit longer than usual to get to your commitments and try to keep calm when things don’t go as planned. You may need to take the long way around- both physically and metaphorically- in order to get things to work. But the “scenic route” isn’t all that bad! If you keep an open mind, you may discover new things that spark your interest. Additionally, things are looking good at the end of the week when your ruling planet, Mercury, goes direct and steady on Friday. With Mercury back in line, misunderstandings and miscommunications may suddenly clear up and technology should be behaving better than it has been the past few weeks.
Tarot Card : Three of Wands, Reversed
Whatever difficulties or complications you faced last week have been overcome, Cancer, and your recent acts of kindness are yielding positive results. These small actions may not seem like much to you, but every smile or kind word means a lot to those around you, and good deeds add up! As ruler of the Fourth Astrological House of family, people often look to you as a source of love and warmth, and it’s only right that you get to enjoy that sense of belonging and comfort too. This week, your happiness can be found with those you love- take time to enjoy the company of your favorite people. It’s a great time to work on things with others, go on dates, begin a new relationship or meet new people. Remember that physical distance means nothing- what truly matters is the bond you feel in your heart.
Tarot Card : Two of Cups
Light is guiding you into this week, Leo, as you begin with the waning crescent moon in your hands. Her light fades as the days go by, and on Wednesday you will hand her over to neighboring Virgo where she will fade from the skies entirely as a new moon on Thursday. As the skies grow dark, you may find yourself struggling to step up to tasks and find the energy you need to see things through. This isn’t because you aren’t capable or are a failure- not at all! The proud lion of the Zodiac carries immense potential within. It’s just that you have been reflecting the light off of others without spending enough time letting your own beautiful inner light shine- remember that you have the ability to glow and the power to thrive. Venus direct in your sign is there to help you- let the planet of beauty and confidence empower you to step up, take control, and be the person you wish to be. If you need companionship, look at an Aries- they are walking a similar path to you this week.
Tarot Card : The High Priestess, Reversed
Expect a busy and productive week, Virgo! Things are aligning and it’s time for you to step towards your higher potential. You hold both the sun and moon in your hands this week as dual celestial forces become balanced in your realm. Here in the heart of Virgo season, you carry the bright energy of the sun, and the moon enters Virgo on Wednesday. In your hands, she becomes a relaxed and refreshed New Moon on Thursday. This is a good time to catch your breath and catch up on anything you had set aside to do later. Although the moon leaves you on Friday, another visitor in your realm- Mercury, your ruling planet- will swing back into line and go direct the same day. Blockages are falling away and the path ahead is becoming clear- in many ways, things are becoming what they are meant to be. Keep your head up and walk forward confidently- your higher purpose is calling you and you have the ability to thrive in what you do.
Tarot Card : The Empress
There is a moment of peace on Wednesday during the new moon in neighboring Virgo, but it’s the calm before the storm for you, Libra! Energy is picking up on Thursday and on Friday, Virgo will hand over the brand new moon to you. In your hands, she will begin to grow, and you will feel like a beacon- it seems like everyone’s attention (and needs!) are suddenly falling into your hands. The weight of expectations and responsibilities is a lot to handle, and Mars direct in your sign is further amplifying energy and pushing the need to act. With the push of his fiery energy flaring up with your nature as an air sign, even carving out time to rest may feel like a chore. Just remember that the power is in perspective- if you begin to sense that it’s too much, that is your sign to step on the brakes. Although it can be hard to compete with the expectations of others, the people who truly care about you will give you the time you need to rest and work things out. Take good care of yourself this week, Libra, and you will be okay.
Tarot Card : Eight of Swords
There’s a shift in the air this week for you, Scorpio- things that were once just ideas in your mind have developed and grown into real forces in your life. You have created, nurtured, and developed things over the past year that are worth recognition- not all of them successes, but each with their own meaning and purpose. There is value in all of the lessons you have learned and things that you have experienced, and some of that knowledge is going to be essential for you in order to move forward. This is your sign to slow down this week- take stock of what you’ve done, what you’ve learned, and how that knowledge can help you going forward. Right now you are the caterpillar in the cocoon, preparing to emerge as the butterfly.
Tarot Card : Four of Cups (sub: Three of Wands, Reversed)
Some of the good things you have done recently are coming back around, Sagittarius- karma is a welcome visitor for you this week! The acts of kindness and warmth that you shared with others in the past are being remembered and people are seeing you in high esteem. This week, don’t be surprised when people come to confide in you- sharing secrets, gossip, news, and ideas. You are easy to talk to, fun to be around, and come across to others as trustworthy- truly a beacon that others want in their lives! Just be sure to save aside some “me time”, especially on Thursday as the new moon arrives- having some time to yourself to work through your thoughts and enjoy your own company will help you stay refreshed and positive through the weekend.
Tarot Card : Queen of Cups
Tread carefully this week, Capricorn, as things may not be as they first appear and situations are more volatile than they seem. As an earth sign, you appreciate when things are grounded and straightforward, but the path this week is a windy one that will require a bit of flexibility to navigate. Be aware that transformative Pluto, who is in retrograde in your sign, is casting a further shadow of uncertainty over your path- making things hard to judge and choices more difficult to make. When faced with tough decisions, remember to stick to your ethics- do not let temptation veer you onto a path you will regret later. If you feel you cannot trust someone else, remember that you can always trust in yourself. Now is not the best time to go to court or seek legal advice from others. Avoid places, people, and situations where corruption is allowed to fester freely. If you work with a deity or spirit of justice, allow them to help guide you safely through the week.
Tarot Card : Justice, Reversed
You have had a lot on your shoulders, Aquarius, and although things are easing up, you are still hanging on for dear life- it’s okay to ease up a little now, okay? After going through a hardship, overcoming a challenge, or surviving a stressful situation it’s natural to need time to heal and adjust, and that’s what you need right now. Who or what gives you strength, Aquarius? As ruler of the Eleventh Astrological House of community, it’s likely tied to your identity- what groups or activities bring you happiness? This could be anything from your family to a local club or hobby that you do with others. In order to let go of the stress you’ve been feeling, now is a good time to immerse yourself in things that help you feel good. You don’t have to hang onto the edge of the cliff, Aquarius- let go and find the many hands of those around you there to hold you up.
Tarot Card : Four of Pentacles
It’s a new moon in Virgo in the heart of Virgo season, and The Maiden is the sign exactly opposite of you in the Zodiac cycle, Pisces. As such, there’s a bit of a magnetic effect going on this week, gently pulling you towards something unknown while at the same time, you feel a little out of touch with yourself. Events that occur may seem distant or even like they are happening to someone else and you may find it harder than usual to remember things. Even the influences of retrograde Saturn and retrograde Neptune in your sign feel far away, as the days seem to come and go by like repetitive waves from the sea. Let it all help you to relax, Pisces- this is less a time of action and more a time of rest and renewal for you. As the moon passes her new phase and begins to grow with light, leave your heart and mind open- your energy and spark will return to you when you are recharged.
Tarot Card : Ace of Wands, Reversed
