Aries: After the new moon to start the week, you realize the power you have to make drastic changes to your life. If something is unsatisfactory to you, instead of feeling bad about it, see what you can do to change it or your perspective. Mercury in Capricorn helps you to focus on one thing at a time. Keep your to-do list short; this way you can get around to completing it. Venus, also in Capricorn, invites you to make commitments in relationships, to put in the work, and to not make or accept any excuses. 

Taurus: This week you are focusing your energy on simply enjoying what you have and working on feeling good about yourself. Mercury and Venus both in earthy and stabilizing Capricorn means that you are feeling constructive, you want to build yourself up and strengthen your sense of who you are. The waxing moon brings an energy of fruition and progress to your projects. Things will seem to have a way of just working themselves out. All you have to do is start. 

Gemini: This is a good week to begin your process of breaking bad habits. There is an engaging energy that asks you to start trying something in earnest that will make positive changes for you. The moon’s waxing through Aquarius makes it easy to begin new projects and to access the power of mind over matter. Think it, do it, be it.

Cancer: This week you may master the art of being slightly detached at the right times. Aquarius placements teach us that there is a bigger picture. It’s not always a personal interaction. Sometimes people are just acting on projections of their own experiences and perceptions and it truly has nothing to do with you, nor is it anything that you can control. Without these visceral reactions you can maintain peaceful composure. 

Leo: Take some of that people-pleasing energy and put it towards pleasing yourself. Venus in Capricorn says that centering yourself is not being selfish. Sometimes it’s a natural and practical thing. Reserve your energy regarding your love life and intimacy, as your passion can be all consuming and exhausting as you spend it trying to impress others. Being present in equal ways, taking turns, and receiving reciprocal energy is what Venus in Capricorn is all about. This week there is a desire to be a self starter, to break bad habits, and to feel untethered from stressful obligations. There is an urge to get tasks done. 

Virgo: This week you are on the brink of learning some new things about yourself. By branching out and taking different approaches you can show yourself exactly what you’re capable of. Venus in your ruling planet Mercury is all about unlocking personal power and moving with confidence that comes from within. You’re feeling humble enough to make mistakes. Roll with it and improvise. 

Libra: The new moon has opened some doors for you that you didn’t even know existed. There can be opportunities to make new connections from outside of your usual circle of friends and acquaintances. This can also be a fortuitous time for applying to new jobs or signing up for classes of some kind. You feel the beginnings of something. Try brainstorming and bouncing ideas off of others to see what they can add from their experience. 

Scorpio: This week there may be a resolve to some of the frustrations you have been having around relationships and family members. Venus in retrograde has officially ended and the air is beginning to clear. Memories from the past that resurfaced can recede after you have taken the information that you needed from them and made peace with the feelings and the facts. This is a period of reevaluation and new beginnings. You are realizing how you have changed and how much more you want to grow. There is energy surrounding home improvements and sincere approaches to trying new things.

Sagittarius: This week you are in your element. There is an energy in the air that looks forward towards the future. It can motivate even the mopiest of pessimists to be optimistic and imaginative, or even just curious, about how things can change. You are feeling inspired to detach yourself from things that have been holding you back. Perhaps you are reflecting on your past self sabotages or bad habits that limit you. Now is an excellent time for a fresh start and a feeling of self-determination. 

Capricorn: Venus is officially out of retrograde but still in your first house, dear Capricorn. You may likely be enjoying the energy that Venus brings to your love life and home life. Perhaps a new romantic interest appears or you enhance a preexisting connection with your freshly charged Venusian allure. Venus also rules material possessions and income so this may be a time where you receive gifts, organize your belongings, or see an influx of money. This week has a flowing current of creativity and ingenuity in store for you, waiting to be harnessed. 

Aquarius: This week you are recognizing the need to be more intentional about your words, your thoughts, and your actions. Especially in regards to yourself and your self image. It can be easy to slip into a self-deprecating monologue in the mirror or to tell these sorts of jokes somewhat compulsively around friends; at first it can make you feel safe, but the harm it causes can show up in some rather surprising ways. Pluto in your personal privacy sector can stir up a lot of feelings around self esteem and this can point out the need for more kindness and forgiveness from within. 

Pisces: Jupiter in your sign is slowly building up your confidence. Perhaps you are feeling more capable at work, more independent in social settings, or more daring in your romantic endeavors. This is a favorable time for self-discovery and self-acceptance. It may even be inspiring others to share more of who they truly are with the world as your non-judgemental energy spreads all around you. You may find people confiding in you or opening up more these days as well, due to your honest and attractive aura. Trust and be trusted.
