Read your rising sign if you know it; or any other sign, as each of us has Aries, Taurus etc. someplace in our charts governing some aspect of our lives.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 20) – Leading up to the Full Moon on Sunday there is an increase in activity. Watch all your affairs escalate to a fevered pitch. It is also a Super Moon -- the Moon is at a point in its orbit closest to the Earth, which becomes a powerful force for major realizations, as the gravitational pull is more strongly felt on the water bodies. Your ruler Mars has entered Scorpio and ignited your 8th house of fiscal matters and crises either on the physical or psychological or spiritual level. Your urge to delve deeper is warranted.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20) – Mars is igniting your 7th house of business or personal partners. This can manifest as your partner being in an argumentative mood. This will be felt strongly as we move into the Super Full Moon period on Sunday, when the stronger gravitational pull will be felt on the tides. You might be feeling like you are locked in a vice grip with no place to turn. What are you afraid of?
GEMINI (May 20-June 21) – Your ruler Mercury connects to the Sun on Friday just before the Super Full Moon on Sunday. Your mental clarity and abilities are at peak this week, so you should be deciding all your future educational or travel plans. Do not let the Full Moon disappoint you, it is not all supposed to be a cakewalk.
CANCER (June 21-July 20) – Your Moon ruler comes to a point closest to the earth at this Full Moon on Sunday, making it a "Super Moon" (one of five this year). The electromagnetic and gravitational pulls increase both physically on the Earth and on our emotional bodies, creating more of a push to shift our consciousness. You get pulled in two directions, towards more individual expression and yet a need for more collaboration. Saturn, the planet of responsibility and boundaries, intercedes, pressuring you to commit, prioritize, and dedicate yourself to your long term goals. Saturn is in your corner.
LEO (July 20-Aug. 20) – This is the week leading up to the Full Moon on Sunday. The Sun is in your sign, the Moon in the opposite, Aquarius. You will be pulled in two directions with each end of the seesaw, the individual vs. the collective, demanding focus. Where will both sides be satisfied? Saturn is straddling between, first forcing you to settle boundaries, then onto self-discipline and focus. It might be hard to feel any sense of accomplishment, though.
VIRGO (Aug. 20-Sept. 21) – Mercury and the Sun connect on Friday and they are in trine to Uranus, the planet of the quick. Expect sudden new inspirations or creative impulses just before the Full Moon on Sunday. It is a Super Full Moon -- the Moon close to the Earth as she gets -- and will emotionally tug on you as well as the tides. Do not be critical of your new brainstorm, or let outworn thought patterns and criticisms intrude. Nothing in nature stays the same, why should you?
LIBRA (Sept. 21-Oct. 20) – Venus, your ruling planet, changes signs and moves into Leo early morning on the 12th. Use this week with your ruler Venus in Cancer, the homebody sign, to finish any familial or household matters that need attending to. This past month you may have received a promotion, been rewarded in another way, or your status or reputation might have altered for the better. You also may be just pleasantly pleased with how your career is going. After the 12th, situations with relations will get more dramatic; enjoy your friendships.
SCORPIO (Oct. 20-Nov. 21) – As Mars rides into Scorpio you will need to have a physical outlet. Take a yoga class and see where it leads. The whole thrust of these two and a half years, with the planet of discipline and responsibility in Scorpio, is on how you are expressing yourself in the world. You will be pressured to define yourself more succinctly. With the Super Full Moon on Sunday you will feel this pressure building as you are about to embark on a new two-year plan, release the old distractions in preparation for a commitment to the essential.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 21-Dec 21) – With the Moon in your sign as the week begins you should feel very outgoing and confident, perhaps wanting a new adventure especially as we move into the Full Moon on Sunday. Keep your mind open now and watch for solutions to long term problems just appear out of nowhere, maybe as you remember your dreams upon awakening. The gods are speaking to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20) – Saturn, the Lord of Karma and your ruling planet, is involved in this Super Full Moon on Sunday, making you very aware that time is marching on. You may feel defensive or depressed that you have hit a brick wall in regard to some financial/income matter. Full Moons bring affairs to a head, if you have extended you tax filing, it is time to bite the bullet and pay up.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 20) – The Moon is in your sign starting Saturday morning as we move into the Super Full Moon on Sunday. You are doing battle with two opposing points of view, perhaps wanting the family all to see things your way. Expect disappointments, stalling measures, or avoidance tactics that prevent resolution. There are times when your partner is right and you can let go of being the maverick.
PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 21) – Just after the Super Full Moon on Sunday, the Moon moves into Pisces. By Monday evening when the Moon connects with Neptune and the wounded healer, you will be the source for the soothing spiritual comfort that can heal the trouble stirred up around you by that Full Moon in fixed signs, signs that resist change. Being adaptable and compassionate, you can go with the flow and help others not so fortunate.
