This week starts with a Full Moon in Gemini, after which it will wane through the signs of Cancer and Leo. That makes this an excellent time to wrap up anything that’s been lingering on your to-do list, and to clear away any clutter or “false starts” which have been holding you back.
We also get Mercury changing signs this week, when it moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn. While Mercury isn’t in great shape in this Saturnian earth sign, it’s far more comfortable there than it is in Sagittarius. This change should bring some much needed stability to Mercurial matters, including those houses in your chart ruled by Gemini and Virgo.
Get ready, though, because Mercury will be stationing retrograde in a couple of weeks. This means we’re entering that period of time some astrologers call the “pre-shadow.” Usually this time goes unnoticed, but it can sometimes give us a hint about how the retrograde will affect us. If your car starts making an odd sound, or your wi-fi connection seems a little slower than usual, it’s worth getting things checked out now rather than waiting for them to become Big Problems.
Below, you’ll find your horoscope listed by sign. As always, you can use your Sun sign for this, but your rising sign usually works out better for these sorts of things. If you don’t know your rising sign, you can use Astro.com to create a chart and figure it out. Hint: it’s the sign where you find your “Ascendant.”
Matters at work might pull more attention as the week wears on, but it’s otherwise a good time for hanging out with friends, spending some time with a significant other, or engaging in fun, games, or creative pursuits. Try to get any important messages, meetings, or other communication resolved this week, especially those related to your daily tasks or duties.
This is a great week to go over your personal finances. This is particularly true if you have any big expenses coming up related to education or travel. Look through your bills, check your credit report, and set a reasonable budget. If you’ve been overspending recently on “luxuries,” now’s a good time to dial things back.
You should be looking at another great week for fun, games, and quality time with an intimate partner. If something troubling is on your mind, though, take a quiet night at home to re-center and recharge. There are plenty of opportunities for creativity, as well, so some time spent working on a creative hobby might also be time well spent.
“Home is where the heart is,” as they say. Home, family, and relationships are in the spotlight for you this week. It’s a good time for decorating, entertaining, and being with those people closest to you. It’s also a good time for some light shopping, and handling any correspondence you might have.
If you’ve been partying like an animal, this is a good week for a brief pause in the action and excitement. Give your personal finances a once-over and be sure your budget is reasonable and that you’re setting aside enough money to pursue your future plans. This is also a good time to send off any messages or other important communications. If you’re careful with your time, there will be plenty of opportunities for both productivity and pleasure.
If you’ve been feeling distracted lately you should get a reprieve later on in the week. Take this opportunity to clear up any work or personal matters which might be hanging over your head, then have some fun. It could be a good weekend to work on a creative hobby, or to just let your hair down. The next few weeks could bring some work-related challenges or delays, so take good notes and be ready to follow up on things before they go too far off the rails.
Use this week to wrap up and clear away any work or career matters you can, then go over your budget. If you can keep your shopping and gift-giving to a reasonable level, all should be well. This isn’t a good time to deplete your savings or go into debt. Favor some time at home with an intimate partner or close friends, rather than an expensive night out.
Matters related to your work or income could demand some of your attention this week, but if you stay on top of your “inbox” you should be able to handle things. If anxiety seems to be getting the better of you, reach out to a close friend and talk things through. This weekend could be a good time to think over your long-term goals, your hopes for the future, and how to get from point A to point B.
There’s nothing wrong with daydreaming from time to time, and thoughts about the future might be pulling you in that direction this week. Be sure you’re dealing well with the here and now, but don’t be afraid to let yourself brainstorm about other possibilities. Little, annoying issues may begin cropping up relating to work or relationships late in the week. If so, start thinking now about how you can address these “molehills” before they become mountains.
If you’ve been dealing with “brain fog” these last couple of weeks, you should be thinking much more clearly by the weekend. Use that opportunity to revisit and revise your daily “to-do” list, and to think about ways to further your education or otherwise “upskill.” Some extra time or attention spent on your work or career this week would also be good. In particular, take an inventory of potential work-related problems you might face in the next couple of weeks, and make a plan now as to how you’ll handle them.
Spend this week wrapping up projects or checking things off your to-do list. Pay particular attention to anything work-related, as well as any home-improvement projects or repairs you may have let slide. If you make the best use of your time during the week, the weekend should be clear for hanging out with friends or an intimate partner. No dessert, though, until you’ve finished your dinner.
If work has been taking most of your attention lately, things should be calming down a bit. At least enough for you to bring some attention to matters on the home front, or to spend some energy on a long-term relationship. If you’re feeling pulled in too many directions at once, take a breath this weekend and go over your priorities. You can’t always get what you want, but you should be able to get what you need.
