— Huffington Post (@HuffingtonPost) January 21, 2014
Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
For some time now, Aries, the planet Uranus has been mixing some electrical energy into your fire, making you an unpredictable live wire. This has enabled you to become a quick change artist and an innovative risk-taker, but it may have caused friction with your partner or coworkers. Maybe you’ve been more than they can handle lately or you’ve been too busy rushing around to notice them. The new moon energy this week in the earth sign of Virgo helps you to develop plans and systems, find a practical and productive pace, and be aware of the needs of other people. The new moon in your 6th house of work, service, health, and habits can also make you see the benefits of a regular rest, diet, and exercise regimen. A little humility, modesty, and temperance goes a long way to improving all your relationships, including the one you have with yourself.
Taurus (April 21st – May 20th)
The Virgo new moon influencing your week is perfectly in harmony with your own element, Taurus. To top things off, it occurs in your 5th house of creativity, romance, and fun. But wait – there’s more! Aspects between the other transiting planets give you the power of mind over matter mixed with an optimism that makes you a mighty manifester now. There has been a long transit making you fearful because of the instability you feel in the world at large. Yes, there are crazy things going on. Do what you can about things that worry you, but if there is nothing you can do, forget about it and go play. The most practical and productive thing you can do is to spend your time now doing what makes you happy. This world is a playground and grownup life is still a “let’s pretend” game. Pre-tend happy relationships, fun activities, and profitable business now.
Gemini (May 21st – June 21st)
Home and psychological foundations are highlighted by the new moon in Virgo in your 4th house of home, Gemini. This can be an especially happy and productive week for you because the current planetary transits and aspects are tethering you to ground where you can make some serious advances in following practical business advice or working on your own inner programming. If you have been wanting to be a more effective person who has better relationships, a more service-oriented purpose, or just a cleaner desk and closets, you will come as close to perfect as you can get without irritating others this week. Just don’t try to be too perfect or go too Pollyanna on people. Make it look like you are still striving, but leave a few imperfections so others feel comfortable around you. If home improvements are being planned or a new home is sought, include the whole family and listen to their ideas.
Cancer (June 22nd – July 22nd)
Communication, the sharing of creative ideas, and short trips and visits with family and friends keep you busy all week, Cancer. The new moon in Virgo falls in your 3rd house of communication, local travel, imagination, formative ideas, siblings, and neighbors. The transiting planets are also activating relationships with friends and your partner in pleasurable and productive ways. If you are a single Cancer looking to meet a partner now or just a sensitive Crab who wants more friends for positive support or increased business opportunities, now is the time to smile at people, strike up conversations, and hand out business cards or invitations. If your work is affected by the holiday shopping season, now is the time to amp up your advertising or production so you make the most of the season to come.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
You are stepping into a power time for money, income, and business productivity this week, Leo. Now that Mercury retrograde is no longer creating delays and the planets are putting you in harmony with the material world, put your plans into action and reap the harvest. You want your “den” ready for the winter ahead, so some of your work may be directed toward practical home improvement projects, purchasing things needed for the home or family, or simply accumulating as much money as you can and stocking up on basic material needs in bulk to reap the savings. If you have a partner, they are in harmony with the current family plans, but if you are single, you may be too work-focused now to do more than a bit of window shopping or light flirting.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Lucky you, Virgo! The new moon in your sign comes with a side-dish of Venus charm and delight, served up in your 1st house of self. As your birthday season begins, what present would you most like to receive? Keep it in mind, but be open to the possibility that whatever you really want, you may have to find or get on your own. Other people are more attracted to you now and want to give you attention, gifts, or just be with you. You have to get clear and precise on what you want so the Universe, your friends, or your partner can gift-wrap it for you. Making travel plans or exploring a new area with the idea to relocate is possible near the end of the week. On the mundane level, a total makeover of your beauty, wardrobe, budget, maybe a new telephone or computer, and your home is possible.
Libra (September 23rd – October 23rd)
The new moon in Virgo in your 12th house of the subconscious, the collective of society, and altered states of consciousness hints at the formation of plans you are keeping secret for now, or spiritual or metaphysical principles you may be applying in a systematic way in your life. Other planetary transits indicate you may be wanting to strengthen your manifesting abilities or feel more confident and secure in who you are and how you consciously create your reality. You may desire to feel more grounded in a home or in financial investments. Your busy 12th house may hold dreams and plans that require some research or practical testing. Find a pile of catalogs and magazines to help you create a vision board or treasure map. Keep your manifesting work private because it is all too young and uncertain now – all it would take is one negative comment at a vulnerable moment for you to tear things down and have to start again.
Scorpio (October 24th – November 21st)
Love, money, and friendship are all on the upswing, Scorpio. The new moon in Virgo occurs in your 11th house of friends, groups, organizations, and wish fulfillment. There are other planets currently favoring your financial flow and your intimate relationships. Some Scorpios may be making serious plans to marry and begin a family under the current trends. The biggest barrier to success in any area of life now is fear about the future or trust issues. Sometimes you have to go out on a limb to pick the juicy fruit. Don’t look down now – or back to the past. When you decide that you want to do something or be with someone, the practical pieces of making it happen seem to fall into place easily, almost as if the Universe was waiting on you this time.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Career advancement is the theme for you this week, Sagittarius. The Virgo new moon falls in your 10th house of career, reputation, and place in the outer world. Attention to methods, details, improving service to others, and making social contacts can help you improve your existing business or increase your current income. Some Sagittarians who are job hunting may find that perks such as health insurance or tuition assistance may be a deciding factor in which job they choose. Doing things the right way is a theme for you now. Every task seems to be an opportunity to exhibit perfection, quality, and integrity. Your reputation and income can only grow as a result.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
An opportunity for personal empowerment or expansion comes this week, Capricorn. The Virgo new moon in your 9th house of higher education, foreign travel, philosophy, and communication offers various possibilities depending on where you are in your life right now. Some of you may decide to teach about a passion or hobby, some may return to school to master something they’ve always had an interest in, some may publish a book or accept a traveling job that brings them to new places. Whatever the expansion is, it seems to be a stepping stone to career advancement or greater income, but it may require more time away from home or family in the next few weeks. A partner is understanding and supportive of your plans.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
You are a practical metaphysician this week, Aquarius. All the psychic houses in your chart are active now, especially your 8th house, where the Virgo new moon took place. The 8th house rules serious issues in life that revolve around shared energy or assets and merged boundaries. Sex, death, taxes, metaphysics, insurance, investments, inheritance, business partnerships, and divorce are all 8th house interests. Use the discernment and practicality of the Virgo moon to get your business or insurance paperwork and plans in order. Is everything up-to-date and organized? Some Aquarians may gain through property, inheritance, or investments now or find themselves having to handle arranging care for elderly parents. The planet Pluto in your 12th house gives you an extra reserve of power and determination to get what you put your mind on now. Think practically and constructively. Know you deserve it and you will get it.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
A simple formula for success in all areas of your life now, Pisces, is to give people what they want. Currently, you are a bit unsure of who you are exactly, but you have no trouble doing things when you know what to do! Just ask your mate, family, friends, or customers what makes them happy or what they need most now, and think about how you can make it happen for them. Business looks rock solid for you now and a romantic relationship may advance to a new level of commitment. A great deal of your pleasure and support comes from sharing ideas and plans with friends, but there is a risk of losing money if you back anyone else’s projects now. Any opportunity that sounds too good to be true or causes a friend to pressure you into joining them should be avoided. Your own talent or business is enough.
