Today, Neptune, the ruler of the shadowy sea and sovereign of dreams, begins a period of retrograde. Vivid imaginings about past loves will reawaken longing. Mercury, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto are all stationed retrograde, so don’t be fooled by illusion and fall for nostalgia. Instead, focus on progress. Discover new opportunities and enjoy good times in the present.
A touchy Scorpio moon poorly aspects both Saturn and Venus on Tuesday, and you may feel lonesome. Remember that contacting an ex will not be emotionally beneficial during this time. Count to ten before sending any emails, texts, or phone calls to former romances.
A jovial full moon in Sagittarius adds special playfulness to Friday the 13th. Venture outside and see what fun awaits you on this night of black cats and mystery.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
The full moon on Friday illuminates your house of endings and other people’s money. You may be offered a loan from a family member or financial institution. Alternatively, something that’s been troubling you may finally cease. Replace anything that might be expired; Venus in Taurus in your second house of assets should help with this. Invest in items that provide you with comfort and luxury. But don’t let Venus’s influence go to your head and spend more than you can afford. Her tastes are quite lavish, just like yours right now.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Venus, your ruler, resides in your sign, Taurus! Shopping, beauty treatments, flirtation, and all things pleasurable are on your agenda. It’s your time for love, so take advantage of this planetary blessing and socialize. With the sun in Gemini in your sector of communications, you have the chance to make good impressions on others who may become new friends or lovers. Engage in a summer fling.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
The sun will your infuse you with energy for the coming month as he passes through your sign. Literally take in the sunshine. Home life should be going well now, and relationships should be celebrated on this Friday’s full moon. Team up with someone to accomplish something important to you this week. Take the initiative to make the changes you want to happen.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
You may be feeling shy or secretive right now with the sun in your twelfth house. Do not engage in gossip this week and keep a low profile at work if associates have been acting on edge. If there are disagreements at the office, don’t get involved. Do not let tension get the best of you, especially on Friday’s full moon. Focus on serenity. Your time to excel is approaching, as the sun enters your sign in a few weeks.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
This full moon blooms in your sector of fun and amusement. Because the moon is in the sign of the centaur, horse around with friends and loved ones on this day. If there are children in your life, take them out to a movie, circus, or another kid-friendly activity. Enjoy life now and revel in your sense of adventure and inquisitiveness.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Peaceful time spent alone will be the most gratifying pursuit this week. Enjoy the lazy days of summer whenever possible. If your social calendar is filled to the brim, take a breather from the socializing and reconnect with inner peace. Be your diplomatic self and communicate from a place of love, no one will hold a grudge if you have to rain-check.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
You may receive money from a bank or another source, perhaps on Friday. Your career and friendship sectors are alight with planetary power, so make an effort to mingle and to meet people. New associations made now will have a profound influence on your employment status, fame, and sense of honor. People want to know you now, and you are a pleasure to meet, so put your guard down enough to welcome new friends into your life.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
The full moon is in your second house of finances and this Friday is sure to bring bounty to your pocket book. All fiscal pairings and marriages are favored now, so rely on your partner for help. Things that you own jointly may finally begin to show results by the end of the week; but because so many planets are in retrograde now, you might have to fine-tune your approach a few times this month.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
The full moon is in your sign this Friday, so you will definitely feel the emotional. Channel this energy constructively with good conversation amongst friends. But be careful not to lose your voice from talking too much — with Taurus in your sixth house of health, your throat is susceptible to illness or strain. If you plan to sing or to speak publicly, be sure to rest your voice as much as possible.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
It is time for you to meet someone special. Keep an open mind while socializing. Relax and have fun. Taurus and Venus team up in your fifth house of amusement and pleasure: the best-case scenario for a good time. You may feel especially prone to rekindle past romances this week, but think with your head as well as with your heart before you pick up the phone. Things didn’t work out last time; is anything really different now? Ask yourself this question when you feel compelled to call to decide whether the sex is worth the emotional turmoil.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Home life is wonderful now and time spent with family will be enjoyable and inspiring. Reminiscing positively about good times is sure to elicit lots of laughter. If you throw a party, combine two groups or fiddle with the guest list; you have the ability to be a matchmaker and to unite people in love and friendship now. Always the bridesmaid and never the bride? Next month things will change as Venus shifts into your sector of joy and romance.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
The full moon occurs in your zone of fame and honors, so if you are up for a promotion or an award, you may receive good news this week. Keep your eyes on the prize. Your ability to daydream about the past is at an all-time high now, so put this energy to good use by researching a historical subject that intrigues you. You may also desire to investigate your “roots” and “where you came from,” whatever that may represent for you. Precious insight is available to you now if you look to the past in a practical way (not through a nostalgic lens, which promotes illusionary thinking). Get the facts you need to move forward with your plans.
