Aries and Aries Rising
We are coming off the full moon high (from last Thursday), which triggered a Grand Cross and could have made for a dramatic weekend for you, Aries. This moon in your house of home could have revealed pregnancy news or a relocation.
This Thursday the sun leaves Capricorn and heads to Aquarius, your eleventh house of friendship and technology. These next four weeks will bring out your social side, and since Mercury’s direct again you can feel good about going out more, hosting a gathering, and focusing on your friendships. Collaborate and spend time with the people you can count on most.
This week you can lighten up a bit, let your hair down and do something that brings you joy.
Taurus and Taurus Rising
Coming off of the full moon high from last Thursday, we may still be processing some of the changes or news over the weekend and into this week. The Cancer moon activated a Grand Cross bringing an excess (Jupiter) of unexpected changes or volatility (Uranus), so you may still be feeling all the feelings now.
This Thursday the sun will leave fellow earthy Capricorn and move to airy Aquarius and your house of career and recognition. The next four weeks will be all about building your material success and security. Consider your long-term plans, career goals, how to best use your talents to make a difference, and increasing your ambition. This is also the house of fathers and important men in your life, so there will certainly be something of value to learn or work on in that area.
For this week, stay focused and active, moving forward toward your dreams.
Gemini and Gemini Rising
Last week’s full Cancer moon was potent, with the Grand Cross creating more intensity than usual. You could still be processing all the emotions triggered, as well as the changes, that the moon activated. The moon was in your house of technology, community, family ties and self-expression.
Thursday we shift sun cycles as the sun moves into fellow air sign Aquarius and your ninth house of mental exploration and travel. The first weeks of this month have likely felt bleak to you, Gemini, but now you will feel your lightheartedness return. Time for a new, exciting adventure, a vacation, or maybe a new course in something obscure. Your mental pursuits and higher education will be supported now, and it may be time to take a risk.
For this week, tune into what you want in your relationships and offer that quality back.
Cancer and Cancer Rising
We are coming off of the full moon high from last Thursday, which also triggered an intense alignment that involved Jupiter (excess) and Uranus (unexpected change). It may have been a challenging weekend for you, Cancer, with this moon in your sign and making everything hyper-personal. There may have been big changes initiated.
This Thursday the sun leaves Capricorn for Aquarius, you house of death and rebirth. These upcoming four weeks will allow you to sink into your more reclusive tendencies, as this house is all about intimacy and privacy. It would be a good time to work on a creative project, or write, anything deeply personal. Your sex life will also get a boost during this time, with the sun in this sexy, seductive part of your chart.
This week you can honor your need for solitude, and for spending quality time with someone special.
Leo and Leo Rising
We are emerging from last Thursday’s full moon which also triggered an intense alignment that involved Jupiter (excess) and Uranus (change). You could still be reeling from some sort of chaos or unexpected news. The moon illuminated your intense house of endings, so you could be dealing with closure or a goodbye.
This Thursday the sun moves from Capricorn to Aquarius, your house of relationships. For four weeks your focus will shift to romance and deepening your commitments, business partnerships, and creating harmony. You could fall in love now if you’re not involved with someone, or wait until the new moon coming up to set new intentions for the kind of love you want in your life.
This week reevaluate what is most important to you and direct your attention and energy there.
Virgo and Virgo Rising
Coming off of last Thursday’s Cancer full moon, everyone is likely a little unsettled. The already emotional moon triggered a Grand Cross, or volatile alignment. Your eleventh house was activated, creating a potentially dramatic situation with friends or co-workers, with tempers flaring.
This Thursday brings another change; the sun leaves Capricorn and moves to Aquarius and your sixth house of health and service. For the next four weeks your natural skills of decluttering and organization will come in handy and are precisely what you need to use. You’ll finally be able to start checking some things off of your to-do list and get serious about your new year intentions (or resolutions).
This week, make your success a priority and organize things in your life to set you up for it.
Libra and Libra Rising
We may all still be feeling the full moon lunacy this week, after the Cancer full moon triggering a Grand Cross with the sun and Jupiter (excess) and Uranus (change) all happening in your house of career and success. You may be dealing with a big change or something ending, relocation for work, or possibly even pregnancy news.
This Thursday the sun leaves Capricorn to move into Aquarius, highlighting your fifth house of creativity and sex. For the next four weeks, love, creativity and passion are in the spotlight. This could bring a big romance your way or even a pregnancy, since this house rules fertility. In this part of your chart you’re encouraged to express yourself freely, be as seductive as you want, do what brings you joy, and you could even receive some notoriety, fame or recognition as a byproduct.
For you, let this week be about grounding and clarifying what you want as you move into this new sun cycle.
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising
We are coming off the full moon high from last Thursday’s Cancer moon which triggered a Grand Cross, or volatile alignment. The action happened in your house of mental exploration. There could be a wrench thrown into your plans for deep studies, education or long distance travel.
We have a new sun cycle beginning this Thursday, when we shift from Capricorn into Aquarius season. For the next four weeks the sun will inhabit your fourth house of home, and your attention will turn to domestic responsibilities, your family, mothers or mother-figures. This is a good time for family planning if you’re considering, and at the new moon coming up next week could bring pregnancy news.
For this week, consider what is most valuable to you and what you keep most protected, and follow your heart.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising
We arrive to this week still high from Thursday’s Cancer full moon and Grand Cross that created quite a stir. The moon illuminated your intense house of spiritual transformation.
You may still be dealing with the fallout of an ending or big changes in your most intimate relationship.
On Thursday the sun leaves Capricorn and moves to air sign Aquarius, your third house of self-expression. For these next four weeks, most of your energy will be spent on family, travel and communication. This would be the perfect time to plan a trip, especially if you didn’t travel for the holidays. It could be an extremely productive period too, involving technology or collaborations or having bright ideas to bring to the table.
This week, keep the mental energy flowing and trust in your intuition and intelligence.
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising
Last Thursday’s potent full moon in Cancer created an abundance of lunacy that you still may be feeling this week. The moon was in your relationship house, and together with the sun and Jupiter and Uranus, created a Grand Cross which stirred up volatility or changes.
This Thursday the sun leaves your sign and heads to airy Aquarius for the next four weeks. This sun cycle illuminates your second house of money and possessions, turning your attention and much of your energy to financial matters, career and stability. Grow not only your financial security and material success during this time, but your mental steadfastness too. You may be at a crossroads career-wise or creatively speaking but this month use your instincts and watch for open doors.
This week consider lucrative new income ideas and go for it, and keep remembering your own self-worth.
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising
We are coming off of the lunar high of the full moon in Cancer last Thursday which triggered a Grand Cross, including your ruling planet Uranus. The moon upended your house of health, maybe causing some disturbance in your plans to get your health or fitness on track. Don’t feel discouraged- begin again.
This Thursday is the beginning of your solar return month, as the sun leaves Capricorn for your sign. Happy birthday, Water Bearer! For the next four weeks the spotlight is on you. This is your time to shine, putting yourself first, being your boldest and most outspoken, and following your deepest desires. Next week we’ll have a new moon in your sign and that’ll be our true new year beginning.
This week let go of the residue of the past so that you can invoke and create what you want.
Pisces and Pisces Rising
Coming off of the lunar high of the Cancer full moon on Thursday, you could still be processing or integrating some of the energy or changes. The already emotional moon triggered a Grand Cross which usually brings about volatility or overwhelm. Your fifth house was affected, so themes of creativity and sexual expression.
This week we leave Capricorn season on Thursday when the sun heads into Aquarius and your twelfth house of closure. This is the time for you to rest and prepare for your solar return coming up next month. For the next four weeks your attention will turn to self-care, karma, and letting go of any self-imposed limitations or self-undoing behavior. It’s your time for deep rest and spiritual understanding.
This week, allow yourself extra space and solitude, maybe even taking a spa day to pamper.
