Keep your sharp tongue and fiery impulses in check on Wednesday, especially involving finances and friends. Then Thursday night’s New Moon highlights your hopes and wishes zone, so you need to make your aspirations for the future as creative and innovative as possible. Your motto for the week is from birthday great Alice Walker, “We should learn to accept that change is truly the only thing that’s going on always, and learn to ride with it and enjoy it.”
You’ll be in the public eye in some way, as no less than six planets stimulate your reputation/career zone. So you could shine at work, at school or in a volunteer position. When it comes to your job, do you need to upskill? Are you looking for employment or is it time to change vocation? The winds of change are blowing through your professional zone so prepare to pivot! Unhappily single? You could find yourself attracted to a colleague, client or customer.
This week dynamic Mars provides a much-needed energy boost. You’re raring to go and super busy but are you actually achieving anything of substance? Mercury is retrograde so make sure you double-check details and leave plenty of time to get to appointments. If you prioritise (plus tackle tasks in regular short bursts) then you’ll gradually get things done. The New Moon heralds an insightful realisation about yourself or a welcome weekend getaway.
Crabs are sentimental creatures and can spend too much time in the past. Resist the urge to brood over love gone wrong. This week’s stars help heal your hurt feelings so you can finally let go and move on. The New Moon signals a major shift in the areas of intimacy or money. Perhaps a passionate new affair or the start of a promising financial partnership? But plenty of patience is required on Wednesday, when a relationship goes through a bumpy patch.
Mick Jagger, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez … why are so many major entertainers Leos? Because they relish being the centre of attention. But the New Moon encourages you to share the spotlight with someone else, whether it’s a lover, business partner, family member or friend. On Valentine’s Day, some lucky Lions will launch a new romantic relationship (or rejuvenate a tired old one). Singles – look for love with a gregarious Gemini or an adventurous Aquarius.
Virgos love to be in tip-top condition. With the New Moon in your well-being zone, it’s the perfect time to start a more nutritious diet and a more challenging exercise program. If you’ve been neglecting your health, then it’s the best week of the year to swap fast food for home-cooked meals; cream buns for carrot juice; and TV marathons for power walks or gym sessions. Virgos thrive with a regular routine and a healthy lifestyle, so stop the excuses and start ASAP!
The New Moon fires up your entertainment zone so put aside some quality time to spend with special people who make your heart sing. With Venus visiting your peer group zone, it’s also time to patch up a rocky relationship, as you hold out the olive branch of peace. But have you outgrown a certain so-called friend? As writer (and birthday great) Alice Walker wisely observed, “No person is your friend who demands your silence or denies your right to grow.”
With Mercury reversing through your home zone, expect some domestic dramas and family fiascos. You’ll find the more stubborn you are, the more frustrating the problems will be. Negotiation planet Venus encourages you to display your diplomacy skills, as you sympathise and compromise. Thursday night’s New Moon puts you in the mood to shake up your daily routine as you do something different that makes your Scorpio heart sing.
This week you’re keen to communicate, activate and innovate. And others are finally sitting up and taking notice of what you’ve got to say (both in person and online). But with Mercury in retro mode, take care in the way you communicate, especially on Wednesday. A rushed (and rather controversial) message could easily be sent to the wrong person! Thursday night’s New Moon is terrific for education, conversation and neighbourhood connections.
The New Moon stimulates your cash zone, so take stock of your financial situation and initiate some smart new strategies. And don’t forget to do an inventory of your inner wealth, which includes your self-esteem and core values. Remember – you are more than your job, what you earn and what you own. Romance is in the air but the energy is behind the scenes suggesting a private Valentine’s Day. Singles – amazing synchronicities could lead you to your soul mate.
This week there are six planets transiting through your sign! Venus and Jupiter encourage good fortune, Saturn demands self-discipline and retro Mercury revs up restlessness. However, just because you’ve thought of a brilliant idea (and talked about it endlessly) doesn’t mean you’ve actually achieved anything. Be proactive about turning your dreams into reality. Thursday night’s New Moon is in Aquarius, so you’ll be twice as much fun – and double the trouble!
Retrograde Mercury and the New Moon are both energising your ‘escaping’ zone. So (if you have a problem that needs to be faced or a decision that needs to be made) resist being side-tracked by unrealistic schemes and distracted by other people’s agendas. When it comes to your love life, maintain your Piscean belief in romance, fate and destiny. As actress Loretta Young said “Love isn’t something you find. Love is something that finds you.”
