Sagittarius
Nov 22 – Dec 21
If job jitters have you shooting from the lip, think twice before sounding off around higher-ups. Your angel is working overtime to come up with eleventh-hour saves. At least your relationships are in healthy shape, as a fresh new moon in your house of romance collides with lusty Mars to make you irresistible to suitors.

Capricorn
Dec 22 – Jan 19
The spring thaw is on, but you need to hunker down a bit longer. Your main planet, constructive Saturn, is in backwards motion. It’s no time for a major career advance, as there’s a lot of shifting around you. Focus instead, on what feeds your soul: an active and sustaining relationship. 

Aquarius
Jan 20 – Feb 18
Finances could prompt you to think about wearing a power suit this month. There are echoes of last fall, and if you must arrange credit or deal with a tax situation, it helps to look like you mean business. Once that’s out of the way, the new moon marks the perfect time to get out of uniform and find a getaway close to home.

Pisces
Feb 19 – Mar 20
Mars agitates for change around the Pisces fishbowl. Don’t resist those new streamlined routines or systems at the office, they could make your work easier. And the new moon could bring an ‘Aha!’ moment regarding your finances. But after the 18th there won’t be much method to your madness on any front. Hang onto your dreams (and that dreamboat) and explore new realms of imagination. Leave the reality check for later.  

Aries
Mar 21 – Apr 19
April is definitely your month to rise and shine. With Mars energizing your aspirations and a new moon in your sign, now is the time to place your bets. A career move could prove a winner, as will a new relationship. And with Venus gracing your financial sector, you will surely cash in big time. Just be meticulous about following the rules or you’ll end up out of the game.

Taurus
Apr 20 – May 20
Your inner decorator knows it’s time to spruce up your surroundings ASAP. Pick up the hammer before the 18th though, because it will be two years before Mars provides this kind of inspiration again. On the love front: someone’s failure to commit may mean you have to axe a relationship. Not to worry, your favourite planet, Venus, helps you become a law of attraction unto yourself. Love, money, success—you can arrange them to your liking. 

Gemini
May 21 – Jun 20
Mars pushes you into the limelight. Run your lines, as in those new communication skills, because they are your ticket out of bit-player status. Bow out by the 18th, when another Mercury retrograde period puts you on hiatus. File your tax return before then and pay greater attention to bills. At least there’s an active social life to keep things interesting and some quality chill-out time with someone special.

Cancer
Jun 21 – Jul 22
You get a taste of the good life on a silver spoon. Want more? Right on cue there’s a big new moon in your career sector. Tap into its power and go wow a superior, but make sure you talk to the right people. The seeds you sow now will reap new growth well into the summer. If you need to put the final touches on a degree or skills upgrade, get the ball rolling.

Leo
Jul 23 – Aug 22
Get a jump on a work deadline, make sure your passport is valid. A new moon in your travel zone helps you hit the road with an adventure-accomplice friend. Make sure you’re not overextended in any way and file your tax return on time. You may be in for a nice surprise on the career front when you get back.

Virgo
Aug 23 – Sep 22
Set your sights higher, no, up there! With Mercury in your house of aspirations, it’s time to shoot for the moon. You just might get it. Just do it before your ruling planet backslides on the 18th, after which you’ll have three weeks to plan a later offensive. One thing up for review now is your relationships. Expect a major shift for the better—not necessarily a new flame, but definitely more romance.

Libra
Sep 23 – Oct 22
It’s hard to focus on things like work, what with the planets nudging you towards your new obsession: love, love, love. Heed the call, because this is arguably one of the best months of the year for relationships. Venus helps you realize that the sensuality you put out is drawn right back with interest. Just don’t let things slide at work and it might be time to actually use that gym membership.

Scorpio
Oct 23 – Nov 21
You’ve got Mars blazing a career trail and a new moon lighting up your zone of operations. Meanwhile, Venus will bring all sorts of helpful people your way. Don’t say no if asked to chair a committee, as working for the greater good is a fabulous look for you.
