Soul warrior – arise! That’s you this week Aries. Ruler Mars in your 12th hands you the intuition of a seer with the fearless courage of a Jedi knight! There’s something you need to take action on now and this should be clearly illuminated thanks to the Sun in your freedom inspired 9th. Adventure? Excitement? Sorry, Master Yoda, but this Jedi does crave these things. Changes are set in motion this week as Mercury heads direct once more in your 8th of empowered transformation. Just remember, Mercury will remain in what is known as ‘Retrograde shadow’ – or should I say the Dark Side, until Dec 24. You may know the changes you need to make between now and then, but may have to wait for the right moment to set them in motion. Discipline is the horse you ride.
Your creative and intuitive powers are set to peak this week as ruler Mars meets Neptune. Inspiration and solutions that you simply could not see before now come into focus. Neptune send you the ideas while Mars asks if you are willing to act on them? These are gifts so do use them. This combined with the new Moon in your 9th this week asks you to first focus on what you have learned from your past experiences.
This new Moon sets in motion a cycle of learning, travel and expansion. Now Mercury is direct it’s time to begin something new and to expect something bigger to enter your life. Hold that caveat in your mind about the retro shadow however. But all shadows eventually fade in the sunlight. The Moon is asking you to travel to a place where there is a new emotional experience awaiting you. And it’s in a direction you’ve not been before. Travel the untried and unexplored new path you can now see quite clearly as its where opportunity lies waiting. The Force is with you this week, Aries.
In a nutshell: The Force is with you this week Aries. In the form of creative ideas and inspiration. You’re about to embark on a new emotional journey towards something bigger and more fulfilling.
- The conversation about love isn’t over
- How your seen by others undergoes a change
- Leave what no longer works behind you
Partnership matters move forward again now Mercury is direct in your 7th once more. Be aware however that it remains in retrograde shadow until Dec 24. This is not to say that love and especially new love, can’t begin or progress now as Venus your ruler is direct. Just bear in mind however that there may be one more important conversation to be had around a connection even if you think all is now done and dusted.
You are probably tired of all references to change being in the air for you. It’s been an on-going theme for you for some time. More change may not be welcome especially as you are a sign who enjoys stability. This week’s new Moon in your 8th marks a point of transformation. This could even be around a friendship or group, or your goals as it impacts on Mars and Neptune conjunct in your 11th house. Don’t fear any shifts this month as anything you make or transpires for you under this new Moon results in something better. There’s a ‘departure’ happening for you now and this involves departing a period where something just wasn’t working or quite right for you. Because of your 11th house being involved, this new Moon can also hand you recognition and achievement which has everyone sitting up and taking notice! Change could just have you being seen in a whole new light now.
In a nutshell: There could be one more important conversation around love to be had. Changes occur for your benefit now. And have everyone looking at you in a whole new light!
- Have a back-up plan when it comes to work
- Set your love future in motion
- Magic happens when you relate to yourself
Ruler Mercury finally heads direct once more this week and in its ruling 6th. Be aware that it remains in ‘retrograde shadow’ so still has the ability to inflict work-related snafus until Dec 24. Watch for typos, missed deadlines, missing information or lost files. Communications may go astray. Take the necessary attitude that anything that can go wrong, still has the capacity to do so –and have a back-up plan in place.
However, bright new beginnings in your love life or relationship lighten the load as a new Moon appears in your 7th this week. This also has the ability to impact a key working relationship perhaps bringing in a career opportunity or working partnership. However, you are the one who has to put yourself out there whether it’s a partner or a promotion you are after. Mars and Neptune are conjunct in your status driven 10th. It’s time to be seen as someone who knows what they want both in terms of a relationship and career path. This is your ‘relating’ new Moon. Harness its energy by first relating to yourself in a new way and then what you want to achieve. In doing so this Moon in combination with the Sun and Jupiter in here, will give the ability to attract new people including potential lovers and employers, and a whole new set of circumstances in for you to play with! Above all, don’t be vague when it comes to any goal under this new Moon. There’s no room for ‘I think I want’ – there’s only room for knowing what it is you need. And this Moon can put that person – or opportunity, in your path as if by magic once you do. Set your love and success future in motion.
In a nutshell: New beginnings around career, working partnerships and love are possible this week. Get relating to yourself in new ways. And set the magical force in motion, Gemini!
- Dare to believe in yourself
- Changes made now have long term impact
- Romance and passion are back on the menu again!
What’s worth having is worth the effort, Cancer. This especially applies to your career this week. Success isn’t about to fall into your lap but if you make that extra effort, the rewards will now follow. This could involve reaching for the novel, untried solution or just you demonstrating your unique skillset. There’s something you and only you can bring to the table to promote this and use a touch of theatricality if you dare! The North Node now in your 1st is driving your destiny now. Mercury the planet of business, commerce and communication is direct again in your 5th. Your spark and confidence returns when it comes to meeting new people whether for work or friendship, romance sparkles again and you infuse your ideas with passion and creativity. Just be aware we are still in retrograde shadow until the 24th but the doors to the VIP lounge at the astro club are open to you once more.
This week’s new Moon in your 6th impacts on both Mars and Neptune conjunct in your house of freedom. Again, this relates to making that extra effort especially when it comes to work and wellbeing matters. Impetus is yours to harness however as the Moon impacts on a meeting between Mars and Neptune in your 9th. Simply put, you know you can do better and what’s more, you’re taking any opportunity that arises to do just that. All new Moons are important and they also all contain secret potentials which go far beyond the meaning of the house they appear in. This one sets in motion not just the upcoming phase but the one after that, and the one after that, and the one after that . . . So, your actions undertaken under this new Moon will have long term consequences which you may not be aware of yet. Look to where you know improvements can be made, harness inspiration and action and know that as you do, you’ll benefit from the changes you set in motion for a long time to come.
In a nutshell: Be a little daring and a lot bolder when it comes to work and career this week, Cancer. What’s having is worth taking a risk. The changes set in motion have long term benefits for you now.
- Listen to higher wisdom
- Go with that ‘gut’ feeling
- Romance or a money situation transforms
Dreams and intuition take you into uncharted territory this week and its important you stay connected to your gut feeling and inner truth. Your ruler the Sun makes an illuminating angle to Neptune in your 8th and this may be showing you something you may not want to see, but which your higher self is telling you is correct. What thought has kept recurring? What direction do you keep being nudged to go in or explore? Above all, what’s your ‘gut’ telling you about a certain person or situation? Mercury now direct in your 4th also has messages for you. No matter the evidence of your eyes, what someone is telling you or what you would like to believe, go with what you believe within. If you follow this simple rule you can’t go wrong this week.
Use caution when it comes to love and romance as this week’s new Moon in your 5th will impact on a Mars/Neptune conjunction in your 8th. Remember, this is Mars’s ancient ruling house in your chart. Passions get stirred up one way or another now. Either you find your passion was one-sided or misplaced, or you and a partner explore incredible depths of feeling. You’ll be drawn to a partner who can offer you sex with that alchemical promise of transcendence now. Superficial lovers just won’t figure (not that they ever did with you). But please be aware, there is the possibility of deception around you. This week could transform your love life or even your money situation for the better or set an intense cycle of creativity in motion. Just stay connected to your higher truth.
In a nutshell: Enter a new world of dreams, insight and intuition. You’re being guided by your inner voice towards the truth now, Leo. When it comes to love – don’t ignore it!
- Ensure your message is correctly received
- Future proof those relationships
- Life shifts into forward motion
Ruler Mercury heads direct once more in its ruling 3rd house but please remember it will remain in Retrograde Shadow until the 24th. Expect glitches, snafus, delays and backtracking to continue to wreak havoc with work and business. Plus there is still every chance you will be misunderstood or have to continue to repeat yourself until then. This especially applies to love and close connections as Mars and Neptune are meeting this week in your partnership sector. In fact, the closer we are to someone, the more likely we take for granted that they ‘get’ what we mean. This may not be the case and further explanation or clarification may be necessary if misunderstandings are to be avoided.
The fact is, if you’re feeling in any way restricted by responsibilities, you may be over-sensitive around the time of the new Moon in your 4th. If you’ve been feeling that a particular area of your life is at a standstill – especially if it concerns home, family or career, then the good news is this new Moon could well mark the point things move forward again. But if you are feeling misunderstood or taken for granted, do an inner weather check to ensure your reactions are not based on frustrations around these areas rather than what someone has said or done. This Moon says don’t bring your work home with you. Its secret superpower is to allow you to look at who is with you now for the long haul. Connections get locked in under this new Moon. And whether you know it or not the people around you will have a profound effect on your future. Ensure you surround yourself with those who encourage and support you rather than hold you back. You’re moving forward again so choose who goes with you wisely.
In a nutshell: Ruler Mercury heads direct again. There’s still the potential for glitches and snafus. But if life has felt ‘stuck’ lately, this week sees you shift to forward motion again, Virgo.
- Chart those financial ebbs and flows
- Business as unusual
- You’re right on the money
Mercury heads direct in your money zone again this week and at the same time changes impact on your entire business, work and study sectors. You still need to observe those retrograde rules for a while longer. When it comes to finances, unexpected expenses, late payments and cancelled orders can and will happen right up until Mercury moves out of retrograde shadow which occurs on the 24th. Do not rely on money arriving on time if you are waiting for it to. And don’t spend it ahead of it showing up as cleared funds in your account. Shortfalls and robbing Peter to pay Paul are possible. If you want to tune into this energy so you can anticipate any fluctuations, meditate on the Two of Pentacles card in the Tarot which perfectly encapsulates this cycle.
This week’s new Moon in your 3rd (Mercury’s ruling house) squares a meeting between Mars and Neptune in Mercury’s other ruling house – your 6th. It’s not so much business as usual, but unusual business this week. Ensure that you get everything in writing now, guard those ideas as people may have a tendency to steal them and above all, do your due diligence before embarking on anything new. Yes, this new Moon sets something on the work or business front in motion. A new job, launch, order, project could appear. Your workload is likely to increase as could your bank account along with it. All forms of commercial transactions and business are favoured as is travel and study. Focus your energy into what you say, communicate and have to sell (including your ideas and expertise). You have the competitive edge this week – but know who you are doing business with. You’re in the business of success and back on the money if you do.
In a nutshell: You’re the business this week Libra, so mean it. Work opportunities increase and your bank account along with them. Time to focus on what you have to bring to the table – success.
- Plant seeds for your financial future
- A new relationship reflects your values
- Own it this week, Scorpio!
Everyone is back on your frequency this week thanks to Mercury heading direct again in your 1st, Scorpio. Mercury retro in our first always seems to design its retrograde mayhem purely to inconvenience us personally. As it if has access to our diary, our plans, our ideas – and knows it all before we do. People may appear to be deliberately going out of their way to misunderstand us no matter how we explain things. Delays and cancellations are designed for maximum disruption of our plans. I would like to tell you that this is all over but Mercury will not be out of retrograde shadow until the 24th. So, until then proceed with caution and keep those back-up plans in place. You may still have to repeat yourself on occasion but major misunderstandings should be behind you now.
There’s a wonderful new Moon appearing in your money and self-worth sector now. Just keep an eye on your spending as it angles to ancient ruler Mars conjunct Neptune in your pleasure zone! This can have you eyeing off those expensive, indulgent and oh-so-beautiful purchases with no thought of how you will pay for them. Or give you a false sense of optimism that the money will arrive when the bill comes in. Yes, it may eventually but remember new Moons are the seeds of new beginnings and not the harvest! This new Moon says OWN IT, Scorpio. Own what belongs to you and be confident and authentic. Opportunities to boost your net worth and self-worth are there for the upcoming month if you follow this advice. This new Moon can also bring a new relationship into your life. If not a romantic one then certainly a valuable connection which reflects your awakened worth and credibility. Look around you, chances are you already have what you need. Save now and spend another day.
In a nutshell: Get talking this week, Scorpio as people are now more receptive to those ideas. Above all, know your worth. Opportunities that come your way will reflect how you value yourself.

Secrets and mysteries which may have eluded you could have been uncovered by retrograde Mercury in your 12th house. This has been a time of shedding.

This is your time of preparation. Due to Mercury being in what we call ‘retrograde shadow’ until Dec 24, for now prepare but wait to launch those plans. This is the start of a cycle like no other you’ve experienced for 12 years thanks to your ruler Jupiter in your sign. You can design your own destiny and make your own luck for the upcoming year by believing in yourself and your dreams. Imagine where you want to be and what you want to have experienced, achieved, seen or done in 12 months’ time. As you do, remove those thoughts around why this may not be possible as this too is part of that shedding process. If it is your birthday this week – you have a green light to go for goal.

This is your house of psychic ability and intuition as well as soul secrets.
