Domestic security, the kind offered by a stable partnership, is very important to you as you start this week. For the next six weeks your aggressive drives will look for an outlet in your homelife, toward your family members and community. You’re gonna start a revolution, at home. “...you say you got a real solution, well, you know we’d all love to see the plan.” Beatles, November, 1968. You’d just learned to walk!

Sagittarius ♐ (November 22-December 20)
Whether or not you were born a good cook, you’ll love to feed and be fed under the Cancer New Moon; she loves to nourish and care for family. Even if it’s just Monday night take-out, you’ll be comforted by eating at home with family and close friends. Saturday starts a six week period in which you’re on a warpath to get things done. The energy and persistence to accomplish a great deal, especially in regard to jointly held or corporate money, will make you unstoppable. You see that weeping over the old battlefields, all feelings and emotions, is a hinderance to your effectiveness. You’ll teach and learn that war is not about killing, it’s about winning the right to protect what’s yours.
Capricorn ♑ (December 21-January 19)
Under the nurturing Cancer New Moon you’ll find emotional comfort by being at home, and in touch with family members.

Your energy is directed toward working in cooperation with others, not going it alone. Keep a calm eye on jointly held assets where tact and diplomacy are your strongest tools. Warrior Mars in home-sweet-home Cancer revs up the real estate market, although it has an emotional moodiness to it that can be contagious. This is a great time for sales and anything that relies on good public relations for success.
Aquarius ♒ (January 20-February 17)
It’ll seem like a good idea to withdraw into your protective shell--the ivory tower! It’s hard to avoid feeling hurt or insulted under the light of the Cancer New Moon. It’s painful even though other people’s missteps may be quite unintentional. Here’s where your famous “aloofness” comes in handy; you’re reasoning keeps you from being driven by emotions. For the next six weeks, beginning Saturday, your work has a surgical skill to it. Anything to do with medicine and healing has your attention, and is where you’ll exert yourself to be of service. And, you’ll energetically pick up the long honey-do list and hammer your way through it!
Pisces ♓ (February 18-March 19)
Intensity of emotions is uncomfortably strong under the Cancer New Moon, even enough to send you into hiding. Quiet time will benefit you, unless you let it turn into brooding over past injustices. The Cancer New Moon throws a shadow over the past, reminding you to find the light of understanding in the present moment. Do you see your family members as they are right now? You get such wind in your sails beginning Saturday, and for the next six weeks. Your creativity finds a craftsmanship and precision that makes you highly productive.
