This week’s astrology forecasts are all about the moon.
by The Mystical Sister
Aries: Thursday and Friday are really wonderful days to explore any learning materials or educational resources you may have forgotten since Mercury went retro and things have felt all buzzy. You have some powerful energies aligning to help you dive into knowledge that you’ve been wanting to pay closer attention to. Wednesday evening through early Saturday you will get that cosmic push to start picking up books, materials or whatever is going to help you explore those pursuits. Make sure you schedule some time for yourself those days to nurture your interests and use the resources you have to explore them. You could put aside time to read, workshop, visit museums or historical places of interest, find new music and or art or even interview people you really look up to. Saturday afternoon and Sunday will allow you to open up and be more social with friends, so schedule your visits accordingly!
Taurus: Tuesday and Wednesday might find you wanting to connect more with loved ones and partners. By Wednesday evening into early Saturday, you could be experiencing some deep-rooted cathartic vibes around your own personal transformation. Things could get really intense, even for a grounded Taurian, so make sure you pencil in lots of time and ways to self-nurture, rest and observe what’s coming up for you without judging yourself. By Saturday afternoon and Sunday, you could feel a pull toward finding resources or materials to help you with whatever’s going down for you emotionally. Self-help books, webinars, one-on-ones with mentors or people you look up to could be really helpful during the middle and last part of the weekend. It’s all about finding resources that are linked to what you really want to learn about and grow with, Taurus! Mercury is still retro in Virgo, so make sure you don’t skim over the details, especially regarding what you’re interested in learning about.
Gemini: Tuesday and Wednesday are great days to prep meals for the week, make grocery or household lists, lock down chores and plan any movement routines. You’ll be able to use this time to take care of any self- and/or household work you might have to do, because Wednesday through early Saturday morning, the energy will be pushing you towards connecting with loved ones and partners. These times would be great for phone connection, in-person visits and/or dates — or even Facetimeing or Skyping. You need to talk it out sometimes, Gemini, and who better to talk to then the people you trust the most? Saturday day and Sunday will be a bit edgier, as the Lunar energies will be pushing you towards looking inward at personal transformation and how you make that happen on a weekly basis. No pressure: Moon in Capricorn in your eighth house wants you to find grounded, solid structures that can help you level up to a new state of being. Think about creating a plan or structure around what you know you need to change, or what you are currently changing. Aiding yourself with plans, lists, notes — even if it’s roadmapping your psychological nuances — can really help through any uncertainty or emotion.
Cancer: Wednesday evening into early Saturday will put you in a great position to start taking a look at your personal routines and how they help or hinder your day-to-day life. You might feel overwhelmed just thinking about this topic right now, but fret not — anything that’s currently not working for you, or that’s making you feel off, bad or triggered is just really showing up at this time so that you can wave it goodbye once and for all and create space for better habits that support you properly. You’re such a sensitive sign, Cancer — you just can’t do what everyone else does. Some things that most people do make you feel stifled, stressed out or can put you back to a time and place that no longer represents you. Pay attention to these feels midweek through the weekend, and allow yourself the flexibility to change things that no longer serve you. It’s OK to let go so you can make room for new habits that help you. Think outside of the box, too, like sticky notes that say, “I am safe” placed in specific areas of your house, or buying simple ingredients to make quick meals during the week so that you are always nourished. You have to be open to self-soothing and nurturing 24/7, and that means sometimes skipping drinks or not hanging out with people that make you feel less than.
Leo: This week you will be focusing on starting (or keeping) feeling feelings of joy, happiness or even the will to party it up a bit. Wednesday evening through early Saturday, you’ll want to allow yourself some extra time to kick back, relax and have fun, however you feel that is safe for you! The stars are aligning to give you a bit of a break — you’ve been doing some extra hard work this past year, Leo, and it’s all going to come together soon. For now, take this time to treat yourself in special ways by honoring the work you’ve done and creating some space and time for play. You might be really busy, but you can use your calendar to block in some time for fun so that people around you know what’s up. Also, you’ll be sending an important message to your psyche that you’re protecting yourself and your time. This will speak volumes to your precious inner child, who needs to be held and nurtured! We all know you’re hyper-social and career-oriented, but you might need to do something fun by yourself this week. It’s OK to be alone with yourself! In fact, it’s a good thing, so give it a try. Take yourself to a class or buy yourself a treat!
Virgo: Most of this coming week will find you seeking out safe spaces in and around your home. Think cozy nights in, shopping in your neighborhood, etc. This will be good for you, as you need some time to connect with yourself and honestly just relax. With so much going on for you, you need to get specific about needing to spend some time at home. Thursday and/or Friday would be great days this week to ask for a WFH day from your boss and luxuriate with some tea as you get your work done. If that’s not an option, you might want to schedule time specifically to be home after work, making meals at home, relaxing, etc. On Saturday and into Sunday evening, you will feel more of a pull to leave your home base if necessary, or you could wind up just leveling up your time at home with something that makes that experience more fun, like a new TV or sound system, new cookware or a hammock. Just remember to take the time to knock out your emails Tuesday and Wednesday so you don’t forget anything important.
Libra: You might feel a bit of a reprieve from the ongoing Mercury retrograde this week, specifically from Wednesday evening through Saturday morning. Expect some extra cosmic help with your communications — if you’ve been needing to have a serious conversation (or just needing to have communication), these would be the best days. Get as much in as you can, because by the time lunchtime Saturday hits, you’ll want to spend the rest of your weekend close to home. We all know you like to luxuriate at times, Libra, and you’ll be feeling this pull extra hard as Venus has entered your sign, too. You want to prepare earlier in the week to make sure you have the basics that make your home feel special, like clean towels, blankets and sheets, clean floors and countertops, etc. I promise, the extra work you pour into your hearth and home will make you feel better when the weekend finally hits. Resist the urge to party and get down with yourself this weekend! Solo time is good for your psyche, and this weekend you have the energy you need for a healthy reset.
Scorpio: You could have some major revelations around money and how you want to make it, which has been a recurring theme for you this year, Scorpio. You’re heading into a home stretch of sorts, and while I know it’s been hard, think back to October 2015 and how you’ve leveled up since then. Keep riding on that momentum and don’t be afraid to really stand up for yourself and what makes you feel good in regards to money. Wednesday evening through early Saturday will find you thinking double-time about this, so make sure you keep yourself nourished, grounded and healthy. The rest of the weekend will show you some new ways to create more solid communication strategies with people so that you are standing more in your own power and you are feeling the respect you deserve. You can use Tuesday and Wednesday to vision-board some themes around who you are and what makes you you, which could help you flow into how you make money and how you communicate. These are the major themes of the week, so observe what comes up for you.
Sagittarius: The Moon in your sign this week from Wednesday evening until early Saturday is really a beacon, affirming the positive changes you’ve been allowing to unfold piece by piece in your everyday life. You are slowly starting to become more clear and sure of who you are, why you’re here and how you need to operate. This week is a shining affirmation of the things that are working. Stay focused on that and what you’ve learned. Don’t let anything get in the way of you being proud of yourself. Saturday and Sunday you’ll be tested with ideas regarding how you can structure and reorganize your financial wisdom so that you constantly have the flow of cash you need. I know it’s the weekend, and you might not want to be thinking about money, but any thought you put into it will help.
Capricorn: You’ve got a lot going on in your subconscious, and this is all part of a personal transformation allowing you go to places mentally that may not have previously gone. You are ruled by structure, Capricorn, but sometimes you need to be able to let go and delve into things that don’t fit into your schematic or aesthetic. Allow your psyche to run wild and free this week, especially Wednesday evening through early Saturday. Don’t forget your inner child and that sometimes we need to reach out to the locked up parts of ourselves so that we can heal. It may feel like work to have to let yourself go free sometimes, but if you stick with it through the week you may start to see some results by Saturday or Sunday. The Moon will be in your sign much of the weekend, creating a sense of wholeness and fresh vitality. You can take this time to re-ground, journal out your findings and begin to create meaning for yourself from the most far-out places in your mind.
Aquarius: You will continue to feel restructuring around your friend groups this week, and this theme will be felt mostly from Wednesday evening into early Saturday. You’ve been undergoing some intense change in terms of your clan and where you feel most appropriate in a social sense, and this week will bring some finishing touches. More than just letting go of people who don’t really care or love you — and acknowledging the people who do support you — this is about how you treat yourself, and how that translates to how you speak in the world. Self-destructive tendencies and alcohol or drug abuse can affect Aquarians in a big way, because Aquarians don’t always feel like they can relate to their peers. Being able to relate without substances can be an important lesson for you to implement this week, Aquarius. Allow your real self to be the one socializing, not the you that’s drinking to deal with nerves. Just take a deep breath and dive in. You already have everything you need to be seen and respected.
Pisces: Your career has been taking center stage as of late, Pisces, and hopefully the changes that have been brewing are taking you to a new level of learning and confidence in the working world. You have so much to give on so many levels, and you’re learning skills now that will continue uplifting yourself and others for a really long time. Wednesday through early Saturday, career-related issues could kick into overdrive, so make the best use of that concentrated energy. If you have projects or presentations due, make sure you go over them until you’re confident so that you can knock it out of the park! The weekend will be pushing you toward your subconscious and exploring what’s going on in your 12th house. Get ready to get spacey!
