Aries
You know that feeling when the train is coming into the station and it's slowing down gradually? You feel the G-Force change, the brakes screech, the various clicks and pops that are associated with it, and then people are getting out of their seats, pressing buttons to open doors, and you're oblivious to this entire two-minute process until it's too late, you don't get there in time, when you hit the button the door doesn't open and you end up stranded in some other town that's twenty-five miles south of where you want to be. You can't help but feel like an idiot for being so stupid, and worse, you want to beat yourself up about the whole thing like you could have done something different. You're going to get all snappy with coworkers and people genuinely trying to help you because when a project stalls or goes completely off course like this, you just feel like it was your fault. And because nobody can help you and you're snapping at them you're going to go into that cave, not the great creative bubble, but the cave of despair, and you're going to be so frustrated until someone in your world pulls you away from that edge. You know that distractions don't solve all your problems but you're willing to ignore this one for a while until you can come at it from a new perspective. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and your train went somewhere it was never supposed to go. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you're desperately trying to get this thing back on track. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and snappy remarks. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and the will to carry on.Ascendant: It was awful, but you survived, right?
Taurus
It's nice when life decides to slow down, when all the work doesn't want to be done, or you're trying but none of the work wants to be done, because no matter how many e-mails you send out or how many times you try to make that recipe, you don't have access to all the right ingredients so you are stuck with only being able to do the most basic things, and that's not interesting at all. You can enjoy the whole having all the work done in a couple hours and from that point being able to waste the day away lounging on a hammock, or playing ping pong at the local sports bar. You might go shoot some pool, or maybe improve your golf game. You're not too sure what you're going to do with yourself when you have this much time to yourself. Might be a good time to pull out the guitar and jam a little bit, practice some of the old songs you know well. You've got the chance to go to an open mic night, and that would be a lot of fun, you don't even have to worry about being good, or playing your own tunes, you can go for the hell of it. Sometimes people like to do things that don't need to mean anything, it doesn't need to be about success or pleasing a crowd, it just has to be about bringing yourself a little bit of joy. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you don't know what you'll do with all this extra time on your hands. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you want to be social, communicate with others, maybe attend a party for a change, or plan the weekend getaway. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday bringing sensitivity as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence, although, it's really easy to be confident when you've taken off to the cabin to be alone.Ascendant: You never know what to do with all that time on your hands
Gemini
Sometimes you wonder why you allow yourself to get involved with people in the first place. Working alone, and being creative is often a solo venture. Sure, you have to do something for the day job too, there aren't too many creative people who can make a living off their own business, or their art, so they've got to do that nine to five thing, but there's a difference between working and allowing yourself to get involved in the social group at work. I was once in a situation where I started being invited to the after-work group stuff, which usually involved a bunch of people from the restaurant going to a bar, drinking, and being lewd about things happening at work. Of course, I never talked a lot when I was there, I drank my rum and coke and listened to everyone else and when they asked me what I thought I said life was pretty good. Thing is, if you want people to like you, it's better not to say mean things about them. As you can tell, I stopped getting invited, apparently being cool involved being mean to other people and that's just not me. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you just don't know why you entertain these people. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you're weeding out the bad apples. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and confrontation. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and inspiration.Ascendant: You don't need these gossipers in your life
Cancer
There's no place like home and sadly you can't stay there all day, you have to go out and see people and do things that let you pay for said house and blah blah blah. Of course, you'd rather not deal with the people you have to see, even the guy at Starbucks who keeps writing your name incorrectly on the cup is just going to annoy you. He's probably going to get a talking to today, you'll get there sometime in the morning like you usually do, and you'll be waiting behind all these other people in suits and business casual, and when it's your turn you'll be exasperated, hating this ritual, hating this addiction, but needing it anyway, and so you'll make the order, say your name, spell it out, and then go wait at the other end of the counter. Normally, you're so easygoing that even when you get the cup and the name is wrong you grit your teeth and walk away. Not this week. You're going to tear into that guy with some snappy remark, probably a fast one like, "How hard is it to spell my damned name right!?" and you'll say it loud enough that everyone in the Starbucks hears you, and with that slight waver in your voice like you're about to burst into tears because he basically started the precedent for the week and if he's not spelling your name right, nothing else is going to go well at all. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and if you have to haul yourself out of bed you will, but you truly don't want to. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you're feeling like giving someone a piece of your mind. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and snappy remarks. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation because you cannot people right now. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence.Ascendant: Sometimes one thing can set your whole week off
Leo
You've got your groove back, you swagger on, a favorite tune stuck in your head, probably the pop summer hit of the summer because they play that on the radio and you listen to it in your car and you can't get it out of your head, and you really hope it's not Lorde's new Green Light song because while she did great the first time around with her deep and meaningful lyrics, this new song isn't the same, you're seeing all her teenage years on display and you've realized that just like your love of Taylor Swift, this is such a hipster thing to be listening to. You'd rather subscribe to the likes of the Weekend and frankly, you'd love to have adventures like the ones he sings about because yeah you wake up and thank the universe you're alive, but you wish you could be waking up beside a girl, for some of you that's not in the cards though, as some of you have spouses that wake up at all different times and you can't really plan out that perfect wake up beside someone awesome, stretch and reach out and begin making out. Although, you truly wouldn't complain if there was sex every day before work, that would be something you'd really enjoy starting a routine for with someone. Until then, you'll take the great music in the car on the way to work, and the mix on the way home, and you'll sing your lungs out regardless of whether or not you're in tune or off key. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you've got passion on the brain, who cares about what's happening at work anyway? The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you're flying through all your varied hobbies. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and sensitivity. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation which isn't what you want at all. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and motivation.Ascendant: You cannot get those lyrics out of your head
Virgo
Curiosity killed the . . . well it definitely did something naughty, and you've got the big smile on your face to prove it. You can deal with the lackeys at work who have no clue about what they're supposed to do, your mind is a million miles away on a beach with a martini that has an umbrella in it because tiny umbrellas are cool and automatically insinuate you're staying in one of those grass-like hut things in Tahiti. Case in point, if someone pulled the fire alarm at work and forced everyone to evacuate for the day, you'd take a trip to the beach, grab the kids, the family, you'd just take off in that wood paneled station wagon (okay I realize it's not the 90's and they don't make those anymore, but the nostalgia!) and you'd hit the coast or something for a day of fun in the sun. And when it was over you'd roast marshmallows by the fire and you'd talk about what an awesome life you have. By the end of the week though you're headed back to work because you can't play hooky like that all the time, not the way you used to in high school when you'd skip the same class notoriously and still manage to hand in assignments on time. Adult life doesn't work like that, you don't get paid for not actually being there, and getting paid is a little bit important don't you think? Don't be surprised if you end up working through the weekend, if this whole brilliant plan ends with all your friends heading to the lake or out to a concert festival for the weekend and because you escaped earlier in the week you're the person stuck behind counting all the things and cleaning. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and that Cheshire cat grin could not be more transparent. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you don't want to work, but you also don't want to bang on drums all day. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and abandonment. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence.Ascendant: You did the crime, now you do the time
Libra
You can't help but feel like you're loving life, living it to the fullest, manifesting the things you want like a boss and making everyone fall in love with you while you're at it. You don't usually have this much good luck, but let's face it, this is the last month Jupiter is in Libra, and so you've got this shiny luck in your corner and soon you know it'll be time to pass the horseshoe off to someone else, but for now you'll take advantage of everything it's bringing you. It's making some decisions rather hard to make though, because even when you make a pro and con list, all of the options available to you sound absolutely awesome. It's like you're sitting at the travel agency and you've got New Zealand, Tahiti, and Greece all laid out before you, all of which you can afford, all of which would be absolutely amazing places to visit, and you've got to decide which vacation you're going to go on. Everything is already paid for because someone got you doing that timeshare thing and you never stopped because you knew one day it would pay off and now you're seeing the benefits of that reward. You know that what you'll have to do in this case is decide on one and say you'll do the others at another time, or you can just try to book a vacation which includes all three destinations, even though it'll stretch you too thin and make you enjoy each place even less. When you think about it that way, it certainly makes the decision easier to make. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you're passionately going where every Libra has gone before. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you're going to talk it out, figure out the best options. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and sadness. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation and deep thought. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and excitement.Ascendant: The adventure is only going to get better
Scorpio
Slow and steady is how you're going to get through life because if you try to run a marathon shortly after going through something, you're going to find that you're just not in the right shape to be doing that. It's like people who run marathons actually work out every day, they run trials for months, they practice, they build a stamina, they push themselves a little further each and every day so that when marathon day comes they're in tip top condition and they can get through it without quitting halfway through. You have to think about life resembling that five or ten kilometer marathon whereby you need to build up, you need to practice and you need to give yourself the time to become stronger. It's all about taking small steps that will lead to bigger things in the future. You'll notice that you've conquered that inner critic of yours, or at the very least, it's satisfied enough that it's not giving you trouble, but there are other aspects of your personality that still in fluctuation mode, and you might find yourself lashing out in different ways that are foreign even to you. For instance, you might decide to pull out of the marathon altogether, or you might decide it's a major competition and decide you want to win the marathon. Last I checked, nobody really wins a marathon, they're done for charity, so you just raise funds for a worthy cause. Perhaps you want to raise the most money, and come in first place, but I don't see how that's going to serve your higher purpose. Take a step back from those ego driven ideas, and really listen to yourself. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and progress is slow. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you've got too many ideas in your head. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and a penchant for chasing the wrong dreams. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and motivation.Ascendant: Raising money for charity is a really great thing to do
Sagittarius
If you could hide your head in the sand that's something you would sincerely consider. Your personal life took a few hits and you've realized that you were too careless with your work and you might have lost a couple of opportunities, you definitely lost some points by being too all over the place, and waking up to the mess you've made is never a good way to go. Sure, the jamming, and the road trips, and the sex was probably all worth it, but the friends you ditched, the work you skipped out on or didn't do because all you did was sit there and stare at the wall is now catching up to you. Friends aren't happy with you, coworkers and bosses aren't too impressed with your work ethic, or your productivity and now you've got a big problem you need to fix. You want to hide under your work space instead of dealing with it though, mostly because you don't know how much groveling you're up for. You'd rather shrug about it, say you had an adventure, and you wish the people in your life were more supportive of when you're off in your own little world, on the lamb and having the time of your life. You don't like the looks like they all thought you were incapable and then you go ahead and prove it to them and you feel stupid about it, but at the same time you don't want to regret it, so it's very frustrating. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you can't believe the mistakes people think you've made. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you know it's all a matter of perception, you didn't mess up as bad as you think. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and forgiveness.Ascendant: If you could take it back you would but what's done is done
Capricorn
Slow and steady is something that will make everyone around you want to strangle you, not that any of them would actually get to that point, but they would certainly be wondering why you have to triple check your work before submitting it, because there are definitely some other steps to complete and when you get stuck on the one you're like a broken record on repeat. And that whole repeating things in music has only become a thing in the past decade, if anyone in the 50's heard the way singers like Lady Gaga repeat themselves like the record is stuck, they'd lose it. You know the song too, Telephone, go ahead and take a listen, and tell me that to some degree that's not super annoying. Okay, so now you understand that when you get stuck somewhere, it's annoying to the people around you, purely because you won't move things forward. Sometimes communication is the greatest thing in the world, but if you repeat yourself a lot, if you get hung up on one particular point, and if you continue to bring it up every opportunity you get, people will begin to wonder about your credibility. Another good example is HBO show the Newsroom, in one episode, Neil is convinced Bigfoot is real, and every staff meeting opportunity he gets, he mentions it, to the point where everyone is groaning when he says it and walking out of the room, and refusing to even listen to his evidence. You don't need to be Neil, you can be you and you can continue to bring interesting and varied ideas to the table, you can double check your work, and you can move things forward in all aspects of your life. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and you are a slow-moving turtle. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you can't seem to stop repeating the same things. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and a little snappiness. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation, which might be good? The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and inspiration.Ascendant: It's always great when you get off the hamster wheel
Aquarius
When you feel like you're on top of the world, you also feel like you don't have to do anything to maintain that high, but you'll quickly learn that if you slow down too much, work tends to turn from hills to mountains and eventually those mountains have snowcaps on them and then you're kicking yourself for kicking back in a hammock and drinking beer or cider and ignoring the fact that if you don't get the work done, nobody else is coming around to pick up the slack for you. You will however have people looking up to you and wanting your advice, and possibly putting more work on your shoulders simply because they feel like you can handle it. Suddenly you've become the person everyone is looking up to and thinking is the most successful person on the block, and you did it all by not paying any attention to anyone else. You'll notice however, that some people take offence to success, and when you're at the top they'll try to knock you down so that you're somewhere closer to where they are, and these attempts are often childish and rude. Continue shining even when people say you need to do something that makes you feel less shiny. It's like you need to be aware of getting and taking bad advice from others, they will offer it, and you will have to decide whether or not this is something you should be listening to or if you should possibly teach these people a lesson about how to be more confident in themselves without tearing down other people. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and if you lose momentum you might lose the whole seat at the top. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and your communication skills are on point. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and stupid people who want to knock you down a few notches. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation because you won't put up with people like that. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence.Ascendant: When you're at the top you just paint a big target on your back
Pisces
It might be easier if you focused on other things, instead of this issue of who is your friend and who is your enemy. I mean, it's not like it's getting solved anytime soon, and it's not bringing a lot of joy into your life, just more paranoia and bitterness, and this really isn't the way to win over the people who genuinely do want good things to happen for you, so it's better if you just let the investigation go for a little while and focus on what's going on in the work place that's relevant to you. It might help if you got involved in one of those cheesy workplace party things, where you decide to go with the group to that bar they sometimes go to and drink a little. It might be nice to be part of the group, do things with people and try to get out of the funk you've been in. If you focus more on ideas that will help the company move forward and less on ways to blow people out of the water for being idiots, you'd probably do a lot better in the success department than what you're doing now. And the thing is, you crave this thing called control, you need it, because you feel like any aspect of your life you can't control is something that immediately falls into chaos. I get it, and the only way you get more control, is by gaining more responsibility. So, the higher you climb the ladder, or the more inspired you become to start your own business, the more control you're going to have over what happens to that business. All you can do is try to refocus. The Moon begins the week in Taurus and this whole trying to get justice is getting old. The Moon moves to Gemini on Tuesday and you want to be part of the group, discuss things, be social. The Moon moves to Cancer on Thursday as Venus squares Jupiter bringing insincerity and some too little too late vibes. Venus is quincunx to Saturn on Friday bringing isolation and the chance to rethink. The Moon moves to Leo on Saturday as Mars is sextile to Jupiter bringing confidence and inspiration.Ascendant: Maybe this crusade isn't worth it after all?
