For best results, read for your ascendant/rising sign. If you don't know your ascendant, you can calculate it here.
Aries After about a month in the sign of radical Aquarius, the Sun is moving into Pisces today. Pisces is in your House of Endings, which means that you may find yourself over the next month or so in a strangely liminal time where you are simultaneously watching the old unravel and dreaming of the new. Pisces' floaty, dreamy energy is probably difficult for you, Aries, and you might be tempted to resist it and try to plow through to the next thing--especially on Monday when the Full Moon in Virgo drags you down to earth and reminds you that life is not but a dream, and you've got things to do. If you can allow yourself to float a little, though, you'll find that you'll have much more clarity when the Sun moves into your home sign a month from now. In the end, it's likely to save you valuable time.
Taurus For the past month or so, the Sun has been in Aquarius, and the focus has been on your personal calling. Today the Sun is moving into Pisces and your House of Community and Goals, and you are likely to find yourself doing less thinking about where you are and more dreaming about where you want to be. You'll have a few days to get used to this energy before the Full Moon in Virgo on Monday calls you back down to earth to celebrate the manifestation of creative projects you began about six months ago. Pay attention to how you feel about your creative practice on Monday, and it may help give your dreams some direction.
Gemini While the Sun was in Aquarius last month, the focus for you was on learning, exploration, and the quest for truth. Today, the Sun moves into Pisces and your House of Career, and it's time to package up the things you've learned and share them with the wider community. So, what do you want to share and how, Gemini? You have two days to think about it before the Full Moon in Virgo and your House of Deep Self puts you in a more introspective mood as any inner work you were beginning about six months ago starts to manifest. The mood shouldn't last for long, though. This is a time to be out of the house and engaging with the world.
Cancer Your writing is in the spotlight this week, Cancer. On Monday, there will be a Full Moon in Virgo and your House of Communication. You may find your hard work is paying off and writing projects you started musing on six months ago are reaching some kind of milestone. With the Sun moving into Pisces today, you may want to consider publishing. Don't despair if opportunities aren't falling in your lap, though. These two events are triggering the lingering Saturn/Neptune square, which means you'll need to set a strong intention and put some effort in to reach your dreams. It's just Saturn's way of making sure it's really what you want.
Leo The Sun is moving into Pisces and your House of Taboo today, Leo. This is a bleak time of year in most of the northern hemisphere. The novelty of snow and cold and hot soup has worn off by now, but spring is far off. With stern Saturn in your House of Creativity, you may want to linger extra long in bed, especially if the Full Moon on Monday brings up challenges to your self-esteem and puts you in a dark mood. Any Irritability you're feeling right now may be a sign that you need some hermit time, and it is important to listen to the voice of your soul this week. A quite home, a good book, and a hot drink are just what the doctor ordered.
Virgo All eyes are on you this week, Virgo. At least, they will be on the Full Moon in your sign on Monday. There is a lot of stuff happening right now in your personality and relationships axis. Can you feel it? It can manifest as a tug between your needs and the needs of the people you're closest to, the life you have and the one you're dreaming of. Instead of feeling like you have to chose, you may find it helps to imagine your attention as swinging pendulum. You serve, you take care, and then you withdraw to refuel. When you are happy and have your needs met, then you have the energy to care for others again. You dream, and when the vision is clear, you do the work to give it form. When you've met your goal, you pause to dream again. It's a difficult to do. Life is no respecter of schedules, but if you can find a way into a rhythm, you'll likely find yourself happier and healthier.
Libra The Sun is moving into Pisces today. The focus for the next month is on your House of Daily Grind. Kicking things off, and helping you sort out your priorities, is the Full Moon in your House of Endings on Monday. Think back to where you were about six months ago. Can you remember what was annoying you then? Little inklings of dissatisfaction? I bet you can. Most of the time, the little things are quickly forgotten, but those annoyances were likely the first hints that something isn't working in your life. Now is the time to let go and make room for the things that are important to you. It may be hard, especially if writing is a priority for you. Saturn has been hanging out in your House of Writing for a few months now. If writing is hard, you may be doubting your ability to make good on your intentions, but if you clear the decks and do the work, you may be surprised by what you learn.
Scorpio After about a month in the House of Deep Self, the Sun is moving into Pisces and your House of Creativity today. This is a less intense, more extroverted energy, and you may find yourself feeling more playful or wanting to socialize more. A Full Moon in Virgo and your House of Community and Goals adds to the social vibe on Monday. If you can afford it (and you should avoid the temptation to default to "no"), invest in your friendships and colleague relationships this week. Go to a meetup. Do a workshop. Throw a party. A little fun goes a long way at this time of year.
Sagittarius Saturn has been hanging out in your House of Persona the past few months, pointing out places where you've been slacking off and where you can stand to mature. This week the Sun moving into your House of Deep Self and a Full Moon in your House of Career amplify Saturn's message. Do your career and presentation match the self you fantasize about? It may be tempting for you to take this question seriously and try to figure it out, but I'd encourage you to do your best to detach a little and simply observe with curiosity.
Capricorn The Sun moves into Pisces today and will spend the next month or so in your House of Writing. Capitalizing on the energy of the Sun's house is always a good idea, but it's especially important this month. Pisces has the tendency to dream big and have trouble implementing, but on Monday that energy will be tempered by a Full Moon in Virgo in your House of Adventures. In addition to exploration, the House of Adventures rules publishing, which means that if you pay attention to how you're feeling during this Full Moon, you may get some much needed clarity about where to direct your energy this month.
Aquarius After a month in your sign, the Sun is moving into Pisces today and your House of Resources. With the Full Moon in Libra and your House of Taboo (also known as the House of Sex, Death, and Taxes), it's a good time to do an inventory of what you have and what you owe. In the United States, this might involve getting your taxes out of the way early this year, or it might be a more personal bit sizing up of what your talents are and what you know. Either way, with the Sun moving into your House of Writing next month, you'll want to be sure to clear away as many little annoyances as possible, so you can focus on your writing practice then.
Pisces The Sun is moving into your sign today, Pisces putting the spotlight on you for a few days until the Full Moon in Virgo on Monday. This Full Moon is all about long term relationships for you. Changes that you dreamed of implementing six months ago are likely finding their fullest expression now. Likely finding full expression now, too, are any tensions you might be feeling between your needs, the needs of your nearest and dearest, and the needs of your career. If you're finding yourself stretched and confused, it may help to get curious about your dreams. What are they telling you about your hopes? Dreams? Fears? Who you want to be?
