Aries: Active participation in your relationships and in the world of creativity and work is a must these days. If there is something you have been meaning to say, then it is up to you to bring up the subject. If there is something you wish to see existing in the world, like a party, a business, or a production, then it is up to you to rally people together and make it happen. The upcoming full moon in your sign on the 29th brings up a lot of unnamed wishes and goals for you. Name them and fulfill them.

Taurus: Mars and the sun aligning in your routine sector highlight your drive to get things done. Your independent streak is going wild and no one seems to know what you are up to these days. Maybe it’s good to examine why that is? It’s not necessarily a problem but there could be reasons worth examining. You need to enrich your mind and your spirit in the midst of all this enterprising industriousness. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th reminds you to take a break every once in a while. Feelings you have been keeping at bay find a way through the cracks. 

Gemini: With Mars and the sun aligning in your fifth house, it is all the things that glitter that interest you these days. Music, art, romance and fancy cheese (don’t forget to share) are likely part of your current plans. Leisure time, self expression and a pursuit of creative hobbies are more of a focus for you. Practical affairs and clocking in extra hours at work should be kept to a reasonable minimum if possible. If you have been going through a sleepy period in your love life, you might begin to feel the curiosity and the magic returning. 

Cancer: Frustrations that you have been hiding from yourself and others become impossible to avoid. It’s time to bring up what’s been bothering you and keep it real. Of course, the upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th isn’t an invitation to go off on anybody but it’s a reminder to be up front and to have difficult conversations or productive confrontations.

Leo: The sun and Mars in your communication sector have you feeling confident in your chosen modes of self expression. It’s a good time to promote yourself and try to get ahead on your goals. If there’s something you have been practicing, you might notice that now is the time to level up and begin to challenge yourself once more. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th reminds you to dream big and bark away from the ordinary.

Virgo: You are searching for the next big thing in life. You feel a need to change your style, your mood, your scene. Inspiration may be around the corner. Play to your strong suits but don’t be afraid to take a few chances. The full moon in Aries on the 29th highlights your financial zone and reminds you to crunch some numbers.

Libra: It’s a time to align your head, your heart and your body as you get everyone more or less on the same page. Let your actions reflect your words and be willing to show up as your full self regardless of what others think. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th in your partnership sector shines profound light on your friendships and romantic partnerships. There can be revelations shared between you and others that you are close to. Be an active participant in your interactions as you earnestly feel and reflect. 

Scorpio: Being the person who gets things started is not always your forte as it involves a certain amount of emerging from the shadows but this may be a good time to try it out. If there is an opportunity that you have been waiting and wishing for, now could be the time to invite yourself and create your own destiny in that regard. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th is a time to hit the refresh button on your mental state. 

Sagittarius: Connecting with new people and new ideas helps your creativity shine. Others are drawn to your unique aura and open mindedness. Collaborations and teamwork can be an ideal way to accomplish things these days. Flying solo is great and all, but it can get quite tedious. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th can cause romantic feelings to surface. 

Capricorn: The sun and Mars align in your 10th house of reputation, responsibility and career. It’s a good time to put yourself and your work out there as now is a good time to try to get some well-deserved recognition! However, you are feeling particularly sensitive to criticism and rejection during this time, so it’s important to remind yourself that your worth does not rest on any one single thing. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th has you trying to reconcile conflicting feelings or ideas. 

Aquarius: The sun and Mars are in powerful alignment for you to really take the wheel on your life. You’re taking the lead role in areas where you previously felt content to sit on the sidelines. Certain topics or projects are extra engrossing to you right now. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th brings more boldness and motivation that help you bring something you have been focusing on to completion. 

Pisces: Mars and the sun in alignment bring the blazing heat and the radiance of truth. It can burn through illusions and facades. This week, you achieve new clarity on long-standing issues or obstacles. If you have been deluding yourself in some way, you may be in for a bit of a jarring vivification. Deep dives, research and reexaminations can be quite fruitful at this time. Philosophy, ideology and power structures are challenged and scrutinized by you at this time. There always seems to be something beneath yet another layer. The upcoming full moon in Aries on the 29th inspires independence and clearer visions.
