Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day


You’re probably still reeling from last week’s historic, super, blue, blood, eclipse, and every other adjective available, moon. While your week starts off somewhat comfortably, reaping and assimilating the gains of last week’s dramatic full moon, there is a tendency for a crisis of consciousness to emerge as the week progresses and with it, a necessary call for temperance amongst fire and tempestuous waters. Focus on and carry forth only what is absolutely necessary, and let your dead leaves fall back into the loving earth so you may rise from the ashes.


Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: The application of power is greater than power itself. Look for new and novel ways to harness your athletic, aggressive nature and find greater success than simply charging at the word “go.”


Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: The future is hard on your mind right now, especially with regard to career and public recognition. Though you possess the great materials of the earth and zodiac, you’re going to have to make some judgments about what needs to stay and what needs to go if you want to move towards that future which is much more readily attainable than you think.


Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: There’s a lot of air in this week’s lunations. Enjoy it, as it is your natural domain, but make sure not to lose yourself in your flighty machinations.


Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: Home is more important to you than any other sign so make sure to get some energy moving in your house, and dust away the cobwebs that are preventing you from loving your home as much as you want.


Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: This week starts off beautifully for you, but make sure not to indulge in your initial successes. Though you like to sit on your throne you must always keep a watchful, critical eye on your kingdom if you are to maintain your regality.


Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: So self-critical, you actuality have everything you want. There’s no need to overdo the critiquing, of yourself or others. It will only be to the detriment of your true aims and goals.


Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: This is an emotional week for you, Libra, as the moon starts off by shifting through you. Even though you are the sign of the zodiac that values balance, aesthetics, and harmony, remember that you also possess the great power of discrimination and judgment. Use it.


Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: Though you excel and traffic in darkness, some unexpected insights will be brought to light this week. Work to integrate these new insights, and value them, for they will shed some necessary light on shadowy situations.


Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Though you seek and ride independently, as the centaur and archer, make sure to balance out your travels with time amongst friends. Friends, and hopes and wishes, are the keys to the success and knowledge you seek.


Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: Though you’re used to it, there’s an extra emphasis on reevaluating your climb up your proverbial mountaintop. Stopping and making necessary changes and adjustments will save you precious time.


Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: You must be loving this time of year, especially with so many planets in air signs. This is great, but just know that all of the great thinking and envisioning is nothing without your heart.


Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Content to swim in your school, or strike out on your own, the moon asks you to find some balance and make the necessary changes you need in order to truly swim freely without the threat of finding yourself in unsafe waters.
