Horoscopes are not a substitute for a full chart reading, but they are like markers along the path. My horoscopes are meant to provide some insight and inspiration. If you know your rising sign and sun sign, please read both.

Aries, your dreams may be especially vivid this week, as you explore old territory with fresh eyes. Healing comes from within, and from private revelations. Literally exploring old geographic territories could bring new insights. Alternatively, teaching or scholarship of some kind may help you sort out your own beliefs this week, especially if the material is something you’ve covered before. Return to old ideas and try to look at them as though you’re seeing them for the first time. Books and conversations will stimulate your imagination this weekend.


Taurus, this week is about removing unconscious blocks to your goals. You have dreams, hopes, and wishes. What hidden beliefs might be keeping you from following your desires? Investigate difficult periods in your history. Take an honest look at any self-sabotaging behavior. Check to make sure that the goals you have in mind are still right for you. Money may play into this, since it is one of the fuels that can power us to achieve our dreams. What are your most prevalent thoughts about money? Illuminate some of your own stories about earning and spending this weekend.


Gemini, you’re in the process of revising your beliefs about love and friendship. This week, look back on what has happened in your relationships since May. Consider other past experiences with close friends and partners. How have you changed as a result of those relationships? What do these experiences tell you about yourself? Let go of old fears and expand your capacity for love, starting with your self-love. The full moon in your sign illuminates something important about yourself. It might be helpful to talk this over with a trusted friend or partner, as long as you can be totally honest with each other.


Cancer, nurture yourself a bit this week. If you’ve been hard on yourself about everything you need to get done, go a little easier now. Too many of us say that there isn’t enough time to do everything, that work is stressful or boring, or that we’re out of shape physically. We’re our own worst critics. What if there was enough time? What if work could be joyful? What about that healthy meal you made just yesterday? Give yourself some credit for what you’re doing well, and find ways to make your daily routine a little better. How you think about your life has a lot to do with your experience. Private insights come with the full moon this weekend.


Leo, self-expression is your reason for living. You’re about to get bigger and more creative than ever. First, you have to get rid of some unconscious clouds that are blocking the natural sunbeams of your talent. Take a good look at some of your beliefs about yourself, some of the history you hang on to, and any self-sabotaging patterns that are getting in the way of your fullest life. If you were born under this sign, you have gifts to offer. The difference between a healthy Leo and an ego-tripping Leo is that the healthy Leo earns her confidence by putting her talents into practice. Avenues for your creative path may be illuminated this weekend. Give fearlessly.


Virgo, imagine the home you want to create with a partner (or future partner), but don’t move too quickly in relationships yet. You’re still exploring old territory where home and family are concerned, looking into the past and determining what you still believe to be true. The homes we create as adults are often reflections of or reactions to the homes we had as children. Stay open to possibilities if you spend time with family members this week. Look for openings to examine your own attitudes about your family. Maybe it’s time to let go of an old idea about someone. Honest conversations may illuminate the path forward.


Libra, you’re full of big ideas, and they’re just going to keep coming for the next year or so. The difference between an “idea person” and a successful creator is discipline. This week, take a good look at the ideas you’ve had now and in the past. Which thoughts speak to you most? Which ones have staying power? Resist the urge to get it all done right away. Discipline takes time and dedication. Weed through the dead ideas now, so that the live ones can continue to flourish. Do this through reflection and journaling. Scholarly pursuits will expand your sense of possibility this weekend.


Scorpio, some relaxation is in order for you this week. Just make sure you’re not breaking the bank to have a little fun. Jupiter in Sagittarius can expand your income; he can also expand your spending so that you have as much going out as you have coming in. Pace yourself! Take a good look at your own beliefs and attitudes about money, and consider how you might earn more this year. Self-love and confidence are intimately connected to your limitations around spending and earning. An insight may come through a mysterious source this weekend.


Sagittarius, home and family are major themes for you this week. When you revise your self-image and expand possibilities for yourself, the past always bubbles up from the depths. What old versions of yourself are you ready to leave behind? Is there a family member who might not “allow” you to expand and meet possibility? The people who love us often have a difficult time watching us change, because of the fear that they might lose us. If this is the case, you must choose yourself first this week. Your loved ones have nothing to lose from your growth, only gain. Practice Playing Big: fun, fearless, and optimistic about the future. A conversation with a friend or partner could illuminate some of the false beliefs you’re ready to leave behind.


Capricorn, your kind words and nurturing presence can be emotionally healing for friends, partners, and neighbors this week. You may also benefit from the thoughtful attention of others. Healing is on your mind now, with this Mercury retrograde uncovering some of your unconscious blocks to wellness. What you think and believe can impact your bodily health: just look at the placebo effect, or Lynne McTaggart’s intention experiments in The Power of Eight. A message about your own health, or a path to healing, may be illuminated this week. Pay attention to synchronicity.


Aquarius, this week has you considering how your values align with your goals. People you used to have a lot in common with may be drifting away, or you may find yourself going off in search of new networks. Look at what you care about most, what you believe in, and see if you’re currently on track to live out those beliefs. Are you headed in the same direction as the people around you? You could find some subtle healing around work, money, and your career path. Your True Work is always about the gifts you have to offer the world. The full moon may illuminate something about your joy and your talents. Less work, more play.


Pisces, you’re reconsidering the possibilities for your path forward during this Mercury retrograde. You’re headed for a year that’s going to make you more publicly visible, so you want to make sure that your public image feels authentic to you. Imagine what you want your vocation to look like in the coming year. Subtle healing comes from nurturing your creative gifts. Family members may illuminate something about the way forward this weekend. Talk through your options privately with a loved one you trust.
