Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Personal power comes through your close relationships, and you’re reminded that every new invention is co-created.  New friends who bring sudden excitement into your life may feel temporarily disruptive but they’re actually good for you.  The focus is on relationships and your desire to mix it up.  All your interactions  will have higher than usual emotionality.  Put up a mezuzah to remind yourself Who is present in your heart.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s really security and support that you want from your partnerships under the influence of Monday’s New Moon, new beginnings.  Just don’t try so hard in your relationships that you pretend something is okay with you when it’s not!  You feel a contradiction within yourself between wanting to take care of necessities, and needing more attention paid to how you’re feeling.  Remember that what you create, like Van Gogh painting, will pay off time after time.  

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Don’t bother trying to hide your true feelings.  Emotions are running high in you, but you’ll benefit from letting others see the truth about you.  You enjoy taking care of your loved ones, even to the extent of being overprotective.  Your sunny disposition and powerful will make creative self-expression in all your relationships easy.  Even though theatrics may be involved, this is a week that you’ll be noticed.  You speak from your heart, which illuminates fresh new ideas.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You’re wearing your heart on your sleeve.  The Libra New Moon falls in your 4th house of home, making this a week of new beginnings in your relationships with family members.  Your usual privacy about how you truly feel is out the proverbial window!  Naked revelations may have a confrontational edge this week, but what you really want is to break out of old habits and this is the best way to see what holds you back.  Your desire to rule the roost is strong.  You’ll want the comforts of familiar surroundings, but lightning bolts out of the blue will create exciting changes.  You know that the world you see is the direct result of the lens you’re using.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Curiosity doesn’t kill a fierce lion like you, it only sends you out on a few limbs!  You’ll have a tendency toward daydreaming and doodling under this weeks New Moon.  Allow it, for the rest will activate your creative mind in brilliant ways.  Time to listen more than talk.  Your emotions and intuition are strongly tied to your imagination, so let that guide you to go out and attempt something new.  Attention to your casual relationships will reveal communication habits that are up for review now.  

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
What is your relationship to the things you value most?  This week you’ll find your sense of well being is tied to feeling secure, with more emphasis on money in the bank.  The New Moon gives you a fresh look at giving and receiving, so that you know they’re one and the same.  Your business sense is sharp, attracting good deals and financial gain.  It’s easy to count the number of seeds in an apple, but only your Vision can count the number of apples in a seed.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
The Libra Moon waltzes to a joyous tune with Jovial Jupiter Sunday, giving you an expansive start to this week.  It’ll be loaded with new beginnings marked by the noteworthy New Moon in Libra early Monday morning.  You fill your partnerships with charm and gracious cooperation, but not so much that you avoid unpleasant truths.  The strong leadership you naturally possess takes off the velvet glove.  Great initiative and vitality fill you with strong determination.  Go for it!

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
You’re making quantum leaps in your spiritual beliefs.  The Libra New Moon this Monday falls in your house of psychic intuition, but to take full advantage of this prophetic position you must overcome hurt feelings.  If you find your actions running counter to your conscious intentions, look to unconscious memories as the source.  Detachment in relationships is not usually a good idea, but for you this week it gives you emotional objectivity which you sorely need.  Notice synchronicities and serendipity and be open about what you “see.”  This is not a time to hide your true feelings.  

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Friendships and group activities are the focus of your efforts to establish cooperative relationships under the influence of this week’s New Moon in Libra.  You’re more willing to nurture these friendships than usual, which attracts someone to you who will be very supportive.  If jealousy or possessiveness gets in the way, you can look to your early childhood conditioning for the culprit.  You don’t want to go it alone right now.  Your need to belong brings up powerful emotions and surprising memories.  Step out as a leader and you’ll find you’re held in high esteem.  

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Who’s your first priority?  The Libra New Moon raises the question of how you use your power to benefit your relationships.  Your ambitions are aroused, and you take a new, stronger managerial position with regard to your family, friends, and colleagues.  Setting a good example for others to follow comes from your strong integrity.  Your motto this week could be:  “I believe in what I am and what I do.  I value truth above the opinions of others.”

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Invite the neighbors.  Your home is meant to be a place of social events this week under the gracious influence of the Libra New Moon.  Flashes of intuitive solutions to problems helps you help others who are close to you.  But you’ll feel a strong urge to get away.  This is a time of broadening your horizons, perhaps with a travel to a foreign land.  You are ready for new and even unfamiliar territory, both inner and outer.  Time to meet someone new!

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
You’re drawn to power and powerful people because you’re in the mood for something different, even if it involves an encounter with a stranger or strange new ideas.  The Libra New Moon falls in your house of joint possessions, making property and money you share with others the place for new beginnings.  You may have been trying to gain more control, but now you’ll see your own attitude as the true source of your reality.  Your faith in who you are and what you do gains spiritual strength.  You have a renewed diligence about following your visions.
