Wise Choices: Super New Moon in Gemini

Choices, communications and changes will be themes on the Super New Moon in Gemini on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Like all New Moons, this one (and its two-week waxing period) gives us an opportunity for a fresh start.

In the mental sign of Gemini, the best advice for everyone is to use the next two weeks to reprogram your mind: Turn your attention to those things you love, choosing to see the silver lining in every cloud. Focus on your strengths, not weaknesses, thoughts that make you happy versus sad, solutions not problems etc.

Though this new moon is mostly unaspected, planet of love Venus makes a challenging square to power-hungry Pluto. This just means we need to control our thoughts, and not let darker feelings like jealousy take a foothold; be careful not to obsess on matters or make a big thing out of nothing at all. It will help to intentionally direct your feelings to abundance, so that solutions to any emotional struggles are easily resolved. With Pluto’s darker aspects in check, you can use its contact with Venus to go deeper in your relationships, healing and transforming them into something stronger than before.

Check out your sign and/or rising sign below to see how the Super New Moon in Gemini can work best for you!

Aries: The New Moon in Gemini will super charge your Third House of Communications, making the next two weeks busy with a lot of buzz. Keep in mind that you don’t have to say “yes” to every single invitation; be judicious and use your time wisely, spending it on people and activities that you really enjoy. This is a great time to change up your regimen, adding routines to your lifestyle that benefit your goals. Most important, use this New Moon and its two-week waxing period to think in a certain way — be pathologically optimistic and make sure your self-talk and discussions with others come from a place of love. Trust, this will make absolutely everything in your life easier.

Taurus: The New Moon in Gemini will activate your House of Values and Finance. Over the next two weeks, re-examine and re-prioritize what you care about most and ensure your lifestyle lines up. The point of this transit is to improve your self-worth, which will help you add more value to your world, and usually this will result in a bigger bank balance. Pertaining to this transit, too, is the concept of talent. “Talent” was once a unit of measure — e.g., you’d pay “1 talent” for something. Nowadays, we exchange our “talents” for pay. Ask yourself if your greatest talents are being put to use in your current job, as that will yield your highest income potential. Make sure you’re expressing yourself in your profession — ideally with your voice — as that will result in gains. If not, use the next two weeks to brainstorm or find a better position.

Gemini: Happy Birthday, Gemini! This is YOUR New Moon, transiting your First House of Identity — a time to create a new self-construct from which anything you desire can be attained. To get what you want, you have to be energetically aligned with the sought-after prize. Focus on the abundance you already have for more love and prosperity, for instance. It’s all about feeling. Once working yourself into a tailspin of appreciation, let it “set” and complement your energetic shifts by making changes to the outside, e.g., a new hairstyle, wardrobe, signature jewelry piece or tattoo could serve as tangible proof of your new you. Now’s your time to really shine, Gemini; look into that heart of yours, and give yourself everything you want in this world; it’s really only one (sustained) right feeling away, so do everything you can to put yourself in the right mindset and make this new year all it can be.

Cancer: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Twelfth House of the Subconscious, giving you the perfect excuse for an extended stay under the covers! Seriously, though, you’ll want to nest and rest as much as possible over the next two weeks to process the last 12 months before your upcoming birthday. To make the most out of your next Solar Return, release outworn thought-patterns, debris from past negative relationships, etc., as to not repeat them. So much of behavior is subconsciously motivated, and we’re usually so busy, that we don’t have the chance to process our past experiences, clearing our heads and energy to attract the new things we want. Listening to self-hypnosis recordings, repeating positive affirmations, and giving your conscious mind a rest by sleeping and meditating will be time well-spent. Additionally, introduce new self-care strategies into your daily regimen for a leg up on making your next birthday year the best one yet!

Leo: Hopes, Dreams, Wishes and Friends are the name of your game for the next two weeks as the New Moon in Gemini hits your Eleventh House. What an exciting time! This transit gives you the opportunity to ask, “Why not?” Why not get in life whatever you want? Nothing’s too good or too big for you; use the next two weeks to dream it up. Ask the universe to help you develop relentless patience and faith as you move toward your ideals. To make your journey easier, seek out like-minded people who want to go where you want to go, and take the journey together. Even friends who aren’t on the same path can prove beneficial, encouraging you along the way and applauding when you do something spectacular. The meaning of friendship is another theme around this time; you’ll get the opportunity to help out those who need your optimism and courageous spirit, which will empower your progress, too. This is also a great two-week period to meet new people who “get you,” and these like-minded people could become part of your tribe or lifelong friends.

Virgo: This New Moon in Gemini will transit your Tenth House of Status and Honors, so your career is front and center! More than just your job, the Tenth House covers your legacy, what you’ll be known for. Over the next two weeks, get clear on what you bring to the table and how you can strategically move up the ladder of success. Once these next two weeks are up, you’ll be able to let loose, but for now remember that you’re in the spotlight and keep your eyes on the prize. Additionally, this is the ideal time to empower your self-discipline; being more consistent with your workouts or cleaner with your diet, for instance, will help strengthen your presence. Make sure you’re getting your proper rest and taking good care of yourself so you’re able to maintain an excellent attitude, choose your battles carefully, and finesse your way to the top of whatever mountain you want to climb.

Libra: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Ninth House of the Higher Mind. Over the next two weeks, the concept of “journeying” will be at the forefront. Is there a new journey you want to go on? Maybe some long-term professional plans or a new life-long study? You might even decide to distance yourself from the familiar and move cross-country or visit some distant shore. Whatever it is, your “itchy feet” during this period will prompt you to get moving! The whole point of a Ninth House transit is to expand your mind, which will help you achieve justice for yourself and the world…for there are many things now just waiting for you to discover! As you set off on a new journey over the next two weeks (or recommit to one in progress) don’t worry about things out of your control; instead, choose to see life and people through the lens of love to help solicit (via Law of Attraction) positive outcomes. All you have to do, Libra, is show up and take responsibility for your own energy, and commit to enjoying every step of the new trajectory.

Scorpio: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Eighth House of Rebirth, so “game-changer” could best describe your next two weeks. To set boundaries or dissolve boundaries, that is the question. The Eighth House is where we intermingle our resources with other people and entities (energies); this can be empowering or disempowering, and sometimes both at the same time. If you take out a loan, for instance, (an Eighth House thing) you’re given some reprieve with the bank’s resources, but with interest and fees you’ll be investing more of your own resources. What do you value more?Taking out the loan and having money now, or not being beholden to the bank? Or say the guy you’re seeing is great in bed (another Eighth House thing) but he’s emotionally unavailable. What do you value more, the sex or having a man who’s there emotionally? There’s no right or wrong answers, but your choices define your values which will create your life experience. Over the next two weeks, make sure you consider the vibrational outcome of your decisions — i.e., ask which value-based option will make you happier.

Sagittarius: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Seventh House of Partnerships, Sagittarius! This is a great time to strengthen your relationships with others, and the first step to this is to strengthen your relationship with yourself. Be kind to yourself, non-judgmental, and accept where you’re at. This will in turn help you approach others through the eyes of love, which by law of attraction will help you solicit from others what you want to see. No doubt that this is a great time to re-commit to partnerships you’re in, or recommit to finding your ideal partner/s — in love, business, friends, etc. After the last moon cycle two weeks ago — the Full Moon in Scorpio — you may have found that some partnerships don’t suit you anymore. If that’s the case, work on releasing them from your life with love. Alternatively, you may have decided to deepen your relationships. In either case, in bettering your self-love, you’re setting the stage for blossoming, appreciative relationships that balance you and make your journey richer and more fulfilling.

Capricorn: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Sixth House of Health and Work. Remember, your health is your wealth, Capricorn, and that’s going to give your career the longevity it deserves. Now is the perfect opportunity to introduce new lifestyle choices into your daily regimen. Perhaps it’s meditation, exercise, or cleaner eating…anything you can do to sooth yourself and let the universal life force energy run through you better — which will allow you to get more done! The next two weeks may be busy work-wise, so ensure you have enough gas in your tank to give your tasks the time and attention they need for a quality result. Aim for more patience with yourself, co-workers and projects as you move toward completion. If you’re looking for new work, the next two weeks are ideal to get that ball in motion. Clarify what you want with the universe, and do your part to make it happen!

Aquarius: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Fifth House of Pleasure! This is a great opportunity to benefit from life’s big secret to success: Fun! The universe wants you to be joyful, and that joy brings more joy. Don’t deprive yourself of the joy you already have just because one or two things may be off, as the joy you have in one area can set the stage for joy in another. Over the next two weeks, you can facilitate greater joy through self-expression. Maybe there’s an old art-form you want to reacquaint yourself with, or some new mode of self-expression you’ll want to pursue. Do it! In addition to self-expression, you can gain more joy over the next two weeks by aiming to have as much fun as possible. Don’t decline any invitations that could be enjoyable. Relationship-wise, the time is ripe to reignite your passion with your partner by enjoying a getaway or enjoying some hot date nights. If not attached, you could very well find romance during this cycle. Appreciate yourself and appreciate your friends, family, partners, work, home — anything you can — as that appreciation will help you develop more joy in every area of your life.

Pisces: The New Moon in Gemini will transit your Fourth House of Home, Family and Security. The next two weeks will be about really rooting yourself to feel more secure. It all starts with you, and your unconditional love and self-acceptance. Make sure you’re doing all you can to take super good care of yourself. Part of this may be ensuring your home offers you the refuge you need to restore yourself regularly. If you’re not happy with the comfort level you have in your home, take measures to make it more comfortable. Perhaps this means new pillows, artwork, etc., or finding a new home entirely. This transit is also about connecting with your family of origin and/or family of choice to feel more emotionally secure. Go out on a limb to connect with those you love, comforting and consoling those who need it. Likewise, if you need some extra love over the next two weeks, give the people you love a chance to step up; if you go to a dance and have no one to dance with, if you make the first move, you might see that people were waiting for you all along.

A New Normal: The Full Moon in Scorpio

Today, Wednesday May 10, we have a Full Moon in the sexy, sultry sign of Scorpio! All Full Moons represent completion — a time in which things often come to a head. In the opposite sign of the sun, a Full Moon is also a time of balancing opposing energies: In this instance, we’re balancing the simplistic, stable Taurus energy that’s pro status quo, with the more complex Scorpionic energies that stand for transcendence and transformation. Thus, this is a time we can create a new status quo — a "new normal." A sign of extremes, Scorpio has the power to reach divine levels of consciousness as well as extremely low levels. Make sure during this Full Moon cycle you flow, let go of the old, and bring your energy up higher; make your new normal more abundant and rich by rising above that which is beneath you — like the phoenix from the ashes, one of Scorpio’s symbols. To find out how the Full Moon in Scorpio will likely affect you and how you might use it for best effect, check out your sign and or rising sign below.

Aries: The Full Moon Scorpio lights up your Eighth House of Transformation. The next two weeks are intense, pushing you to set or dissolve boundaries with other people and/or entities. The Eighth House is the area of your chart that rules sex, intimacy and joint resources; it’s an area of extremes, where you’re either in or out. You may decide to say “Adios!” to people and things that are no longer working for your highest good; conversely, during this time you may want to take your connections to another level. One aspect of the Eighth House is about blending your resources with another person, place or thing. Though sex serves as the ultimate example, you can “become one” with a piece of art, another person energetically, or even with your grandest ideals. The interplay of your energies with something outside of yourself can serve to empower or disempower you, just as setting a boundary between yourself and some one or some thing else can do the same. Choose wisely where to create or dissolve boundaries so you come out of this transit stronger than you were before!

Taurus: The Full Moon in Scorpio lights up your Seventh House of Partnerships. The focus for the next two weeks is on the “others” in your life — this could be your significant other, professional partners, or your “public.” You’re likely to get some clarity on where your partnerships are going; in keeping with the theme inherent in Scorpio, you may decide to take your relationship to another level, part ways, or transform your relationship into something else entirely. You need someone who is absolutely in your corner now — someone who’s there for you, values you, and is in it for the long haul. Don’t settle for second best! Do some soul searching and discover what would make you truly happy. The first step to getting what you what is knowing what that is! Use this Full Moon to get clear: What do you want in a significant other? In a business partner? In an audience? With the goal in mind, move ahead while willing to let go of anything that doesn’t fit those parameters. Of course, the onus is on you to communicate your needs and ensure you’re giving others the chance to step up to the plate. Work that throat chakra — communicate — and then you’ll know your next move.

Gemini: The intense Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your Sixth House of Health and Service. Essentially, this is a time when you’ll want to make sure your day-to-day activities serve your highest good. Are your daily rituals healthy? Do you have a strong desire to go to work or do you dread it every day? With these and other questions asked, you’ll get a pretty good idea of your next move — e.g., implement a healthier regimen, find a new place of work, improve your schedule, etc. The Full Moon in Scorpio is very powerful, so it’s likely you’ll be given a very strong nudge to push out anything that’s causing more harm than good. My best advice to you is to clarify your ideals and take action on actualizing them. When someone quits drinking, smoking or sugar, for instance, it’s advisable they find a suitable substitute, otherwise something else tends to find them! In this vein, when there’s something you want to quit — like a job or bad habit — have an idea of its ideal replacement and take action on achieving it. If everything is on the up and up at work and with your regimen, over the next two weeks you can take your success to another level — e.g., go for that promotion, step up your workouts, increase the healthiness in your diet, etc.

Cancer: It’s getting hot in here, Cancer, with the Full Moon in Scorpio transiting your Fifth House of Pleasure! The next two weeks promise opportunities in romance, creativity, and fun! The Fifth House is an opportunity to ignite that spark within that blazes when you’re doing things that you really love. If partnered, use some time over the next two weeks for hot date nights or a weekend getaway; if single, dress up to the nines and get out there to find a great catch! In addition to romance, you could also use the next two weeks for fun with friends. Taking a trip to Coney Island or Disney could be great fun, as could something as simple as bowling, going to the movies or enjoying a picnic — the possibilities are endless! Additionally, you could use the next two weeks to finish up a creative project, infusing your newly ignited creativity into it. If you have kids, the next two weeks are ideal for engagement, as the childlike aspects of yourself will be more prominent. Of course, if you don’t have children but want some, the next two weeks is ideal for making that dream come true!

Leo: The Full Moon in Scorpio, transiting your Fourth House of Home and Family, is a time for you to get back to your roots! You’ll want to use the next two weeks to develop a stronger sense of internal security. You can deepen your self-trust in a variety of ways: For starters, you can work on giving yourself 100% unconditional love and acceptance. You can also take measures to connect more deeply with those you love. You Leos have so much pride, especially in your ability to provide. But what about your heart? That’s your greatest possession, and allowing people to love you for you is what really counts now — so ask loved-ones for the nurture you need. Further, because a Leo’s home is their kingdom, you’ll want to make it as comfy and cozy as possible over the next two weeks. This could mean redecorating, purchasing some creature comforts, or even looking for a place that’s better suited for you. The universe wants you to feel super secure right now on the inside — internally royal, if you will — so take into account all of the aforementioned matters. Above all else, make sure to nurture yourself with all things that feel good to that big, generous heart of yours!

Virgo: The penetrative Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your Third House of Communication, giving the next two weeks a lot of buzz! Keep light on your feet, Virgo, as there’s bound to be a lot of information to contend with: Phone calls, emails, new information about projects, errands to run and more. Luckily, you’re ruled by Mercury, and have the ability to expertly differentiate the important from the irrelevant and to prioritize effectively. Remain light and flexible and, once again, you’ll save the day! But it’s not all work, Virgo; the next two weeks could be very social for you, too. Invites and events are likely to arrive, and you’ll be able to use these situations for your highest good. For instance, if you’re looking for love or work, you may meet someone at a party where you were just expecting to enjoy friends — talk about efficiency! Put out there what you want, and you may very well find it! Because your mind during this time is so strong, you may want to take up a class or learn something new. Finally, because this is such a mental transit, your mind can make or break you: Be self-disciplined and don’t give yourself the luxury of a negative thought. You always have the power to see things differently, and making sure your body feels great (massage, rest, eating well) will help you cast all circumstances in an pathologically optimistic light!

Libra: Comfort is the name of your game as the Full Moon in Scorpio transits your Second House of Value and Finance. Sure, this transit is about increasing your sense of self-worth along with your bank balance, but a short cut to that is sensuality. Make sure your body is feeling great; book a massage or go for a swim — do anything that helps you to feel as perfect as possible. By ensuring your body feels great, you’ll be sending a strong message to the universe about the extent of your value, which will help you attract more wealth and abundance. With your body feeling great, make sure your throat chakra (wear sky blue to help) is open and that your throat feels good; if it doesn’t, chances are you’re not “speaking up” about something important, so make sure you say your peace. Further, if you feel you’re being undervalued at work, now’s your time to rectify that. Though I wouldn’t suggest asking for a raise right on the Full Moon in Scorpio, Thursday (after 1pm EDT) would be ideal, or anytime over the next two weeks. During this transit, you could also go out on a limb to find a new job and/or clients. Just know you’re worth it — remember FEELING great will help you feel you’re worth it — and you’ll be good to go.

Scorpio: This Full Moon in Scorpio is all about you, you sexy thing! Transiting your First House of Identity, bright Luna will have you full of raw power, ready to be seen and have all your needs met. You may want to diversify your energy, so it’s not concentrated in just one area. By balancing your flow of energy, you’ll give the universe a chance to provide you with what’s most important now. Is it love? Family? Career? Health? You can indeed have whatever you want, Scorpio, but sometimes diversifying your interests will help you manifest faster — e.g., breaking away from work may help you do your job, just as spending quality time with friends could help you better understand your partner, etc. Over the next two weeks, you may find that some people and things aren’t giving you back the 100% you’re putting in; that means you may have to assert your feelings and potentially detour from any one-way streets. During this transit, get in touch with who you are and who you want to be; keep flowing toward that, letting go of anything that seems to fall away in the process. Life is a process of becoming, and you don’t need any dead wood to hold you back from your highest degree of happiness!

Sagittarius: As the Full Moon in Scorpio transits your Twelfth House of the Subconscious, you may want to take it easy over the next two weeks, as you’re having to process a lot of information during this period. Since in life we get what we subconsciously believe we deserve, use the next two weeks to release any negative thoughts or beliefs that may be sabotaging your happiness. This may require some soul searching, and will definitely be easier without irrelevant noise: Shut off the phone, be judicious about the invitations you accept, and entertain only empowering thoughts. A Twelfth House transit is a time when we benefit from privacy, even solitude, so we can work out whatever “kinks” in our heads that may be subliminally thwarting our progress. During a transit of the Twelfth House, also known as “the House of Endings,” there may be some things you decide to let go of. In a nutshell, what needs to go is fear — and any decisions based on fear. You can make optimal use of this transit by listening to subliminal hypnosis recordings, doing meditations, saying affirmations, and visualizing what you want your life to look like. (TIP: The universe responds to FEELING, so feel the way you expect to feel upon actualization of your goals; hold that feeling and let it change your energy.)Your next transit (May 25) will emphasize the “others” in your life, so you’ll want to make sure that by that time you’re in a position of strength to give. Start a restorative process now, so more abundance shows up later, if not immediately!

Capricorn: The Full Moon in Scorpio will highlight your Eleventh House of Hopes, Dreams and Friends. With Scorpio in this area of your chart, no doubt you’re intense about these matters. When Scorpio arrives, transformation invariably occurs; thus, there may be some friends you simply don’t connect with anymore, and/or some dreams that no longer feel right to you. Let them go and you’ll make room for the right friends and the right goals. If you don’t have any fair-weather friends or now-lackluster dreams to drop, over the next two weeks you may decide to take your friendships and goals to the next level — score! Another aspect of the Eleventh House is your tribe: If you have a great community of people around you, they can inspire you to reach your highest aspirations. You might decide that you need a better tribe — one that “gets” you — and you can make progress on finding this group of people over the next two weeks. The Eleventh House is the “House of Why Not?” Why shouldn’t you be happy/married/rich/fill-in-the-blank. It’s said that if you have a strong desire, the ability to attain its end already exists; it’s just waiting for you to extract it and make it real. Make your dreams real, Capricorn, and find an awesome group of people to help and support you along the way. Finally, you’re such a rock, and for that your friends are lucky. Realize over the next two weeks the value of friendship; be there for your friends and let them be there for you.

Aquarius: The Full Moon in Scorpio will transit your Tenth House of Status and Honors, putting emphasis on your professional life. What do you want to achieve in this lifetime? What do you want to be your legacy? Letting go of worn-out ambitions over the next two weeks will help you gain traction on your true calling. With the deep sign of Scorpio ruling your career, it’s very important your life’s work has heart and meaning. Scorpio requires emotional intensity, so if you don’t gain an emotional charge from the work you do, it might be time to look in another direction. Alternatively, if you do feel passionate about your work, you can expect to make some major strides over the next two weeks. A promotion, excellent exposure, and high praise are likely if you’ve done your due diligence. Likewise, this transit is a great time to remove blocks to your ascent up the mountain. Just be very clear with yourself on what you want to achieve and which mountain you want to reach the top of. Remember, too, that your legacy need not be professional; many people make their strongest contributions in their personal lives as an amazing spouse, parent, or friend, for example. Whatever it is you want to be known for, this is the time to dedicate yourself to it with full-hearted abandon.

Pisces: The Full Moon in Scorpio will transit your Ninth House of the Higher Mind, making the next two weeks opportune for expanding your outlook. If you have the luxury, it’d be awesome for you to get acquainted with another culture on foreign shores; if that’s not possible, there’s plenty of other ways to broaden your horizons: Perhaps you’ll embark on an odyssey of the mind, learning more about philosophy, spirituality, or foreign cultures. Simply acquaint yourself with the unfamiliar, and that will widen your worldview. This is also a good time to not only see things differently, but to help others see things in a whole new way; perhaps you’ll decide to publish or broadcast your ideas to help the world see things from your perspective. Over the next two weeks also, you’ll likely have “itchy feet” and want to strike out in an adventure of some kind — any kind of fun will do! Because you’re inclined to be philosophical over the next two weeks, a great balance to that will be enjoying yourself. The benefit of a Ninth House transit is improvement to your belief structure, for first you make your beliefs and then your beliefs make you. Use the next two weeks to let go of any self-limiting belief patterns. Believe it’s possible to have both love AND money! Believe it’s possible to be richly rewarded for work you love to do! Change your beliefs during this transit, and the world is your oyster!

Leverage the Taurus New Moon!

Fresh-mowed grass, the smell of approaching rain, budding spring flowers...we deserve this y'all! This New Moon in Taurus is exactly what's needed to help get our groove back. An opportune time for newfound security, stability and sensuality, the next two weeks will allow us to build upon what's been created for a richer, more abundant life experience. To see how the New Moon in Taurus will likely affect you, check out your sign and/or rising sign below.

Aries: The New Moon in Taurus will transit your 2nd House of Self-Worth and Finances. The next two weeks will give you an opportunity to ground yourself, enjoy your five senses, develop deeper self-worth, and increase your bank balance. Financial plans, budgets and goals can be put into effect, and if you're looking to increase your income, the next two weeks looks very good for you. While Mercury is still retrograde (until May 4) continue with efforts begun prior to April 9 (before the Retrograde). To achieve success, right now it's best to connect with previously established contacts. Additionally, it's quite common to get lots of great new ideas under the Retrograde -- just wait until after May 4 to judge their actual saleability. This is definitely a time for you to richen your life experience; feeling as perfect as possible physically and finishing up what's already in-progress will get you on that trajectory.

Taurus: Happy Birthday, Taurus! This is YOUR New Moon, transiting your 1st House of Identity. All eyes are on you now, and you're given a lot of energy for a brand new beginning in any and every area of your life. The most personal transit, this 1st House one asks you to please yourself first, and define with intention the energy you want all around you. Among other things, the 1st House rules how you look -- the package you present to the world. But before hairstyles and clothing (though these are associated with the 1st House) your energy introduces you. Use the next two weeks to raise your vibration: Laugh, have fun, take extra good care of yourself, eat well, exercise -- do whatever you can to feel great on the inside, and that will reflect on the outside. For the new things you want in your life this year, work on creating a self-construct that aligns with those goals. This transit will give you the wherewithal to create a "new you" that's energetically in alignment with all your birthday wishes!

Gemini: The New Moon in Taurus will transit your 12th House of the Subconscious, making this a terrific time to recharge your batteries in preparation for your birthday month starting in May. The next two weeks, you're given the chance to process everything that's happened over the past 12 months, so you can start fresh without bringing in old residue into your next cycle. During a 12th House transit, you would serve yourself well by taking it down a notch and giving yourself some time to recharge your batteries. Further, since in life we get what we subconsciously believe we are (by virtue of like attracting like) make sure to do self-hypnosis, affirmations, and meditation; program your self-conscious with a new self-construct that energetically correlates with the new identity you want to create for yourself next month. You will also benefit greatly drinking lots of water, flushing out the old to make room for the new!

Cancer: The New Moon in Taurus will transit your 11th House of Hopes, Dreams and Friends! This is one of the more fun transits, giving you the inspiration to think big and go after those things that may have seemed too big before. To help you move forward with big dreams and goals, connect with your tribe (or find one!) to lift you up. The collective energy of a group is your "secret weapon" now. Additionally, the 11th House rules friendship, so cultivating some "lean on me" relationships will inspire and empower your endeavors. You'll be happy to know that the 11th House is also connected to income, specifically big gains you receive in one lump sum -- so use the energy over the next two weeks to attract a big win. Mercury is retrograde until next week, so go toward already in-progress ideas or previously established contacts for best effect.

Leo: The New Moon in Taurus will transit your 10th House of Position and Honors, putting a spotlight on your professional life. This is a great time to strategize your "climb up the mountain" by hammering out business plans and goals. Because Mercury is still retrograde, it's best to use this transit to "keep on keeping on" with projects already in progress. You may get great ideas under the retrograde for your next career move; just keep those under your hat for the time being, judging their practicality after May 4 when Mercury is direct. Use the next two weeks to think about the aspects of your personality you're projecting out into the world. What changes can you make to facilitate your higher status? While you're likely to be busy with work and public matters, this is also an excellent time to develop your discipline; in directing yourself to success, you will have more traction in leading others.

Virgo: You may have itchy feet, Virgo, as the New Moon in Taurus transits your 9th House of the Higher Mind. Feeling adventuresome during this transit, you want more, want to see more, and want to be more. You may want to go on a journey -- either a literal one geographically or one of the mind through study that helps you better understand the world (e.g., philosophy, spirituality, etc.). The point of this transit is to expand your mind and develop more helpful belief systems: First you make your beliefs and then your beliefs make you. During this transit, aim to replace any self-limiting belief patterns with ones that align with what you want out of life. Everything that you want that you don't have may be traced back to what you believe you don't deserve. You always have the power to see things differently; by expanding your mind over the next two weeks, you'll be better able to spread your wings and fly. Carpe diem!

Libra: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 8th House of Rebirth, go with the flow! You're going through changes over the next two weeks, so it will serve you well to welcome the metamorphosis the universe wants for you at this time. Even though this is a NEW moon, which will help you attract NEW things into your life, to make room for the new, you'll have to release the outdated. This is a very empowering time. The problem is sometimes -- perhaps ironically -- we're not comfortable being empowered. Work on making any empowered, unfamiliar feelings familiar, and allow yourself to be reborn. Relationships may get deeper, and ones that don't hold a promise of transcendence may not appeal as much to you -- those, you may decide to dissolve. The theme over the next two weeks will be about boundaries: Which ones will you set and which ones will you dissolve in order to be stronger? Let your level of empowerment be your litmus test for what stays and what goes, and the answers are likely to be clear.

Scorpio: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 7th House of Partnerships, you'll serve yourself well by going out on a limb for the others in your life. Personal and professional associations, as well as those with your public, will require you to be more diplomatic and understanding. This is especially important because Mercury is retrograde -- a time when it's important to be very clear in what we say. During this time, you could manifest a new partnership or improve one you're already in. You have a great chance over the next two weeks to develop mutually successful relations -- a win-win situation for all! Give yourself some time to reflect on how you can be a better partner in all respects, and don't forget to include your partnership with the universe. Develop that "give and take" with the world, and all your other associations will achieve greater benefit.

Sagittarius: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 6th House of Health and Work, you have a great opportunity to make your day-to-day lifestyle better align with your higher aspirations. If there were ever a time to develop some new habits -- eating clean, working out, creating a better work-life balance -- this would be it! It's also a great time to look at the work you do and try to better it in some way. Would you enjoy a gentler commute to work? A change in your daily duties, or is it a new job altogether? Essentially, architect your life with your philosophy about how you think it should be. Because Mercury's Retrograde until May 4, you may find that reaching out to previous contacts will be more beneficial than initiating brand new ones.

Capricorn: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 5th House of Pleasure, you are in for a very fun two weeks! Your creative juices will be charged, urging you to put energy into things that bring you joy; this could be new creative projects, self-expression, enjoying your children (or making them!), spending time with friends, or getting romance back into your life. In choosing to express yourself, you'll be adding more joy to the world and making it a better place. Really celebrating yourself and letting your inner child play will be time well spent -- your joy is an end unto itself! You Capricorns can also find great creativity in the work you do -- a lot of Capricorns like writing business plans, for instance. If there's a new project you want to initiate, try and wait until after Mercury's Retrograde (May 4) to launch, judging its practicality and saleability when the planet of commerce is stronger.

Aquarius: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 4th House of Home and Family, it's time to regroup and get back to what makes you feel rooted and secure. Connect more with family and friends -- those people who love and care about you just because you're you. This is a time of developing a deeper sense of internal security. Anything you can do to strengthen your level of self-trust will be time well spent. Additionally, enjoying your physical home will also benefit you during this transit. This could mean more "Netflix and chill" time, improving your quarters with creature comforts, or even finding a home better suited for you. While making yourself feel more emotionally secure, you'll be in the right space to make some great long-term plans.

Pisces: As the New Moon in Taurus transits your 3rd House of Communication, you're likely to be busy-busy over the next two weeks. With lots of communications, errands to run, and social events to attend, make sure to leave some wiggle room in your schedule -- Mercury is still retrograde, and you'll want to remain stress-free during this fun yet stimulating transit. Additionally, this is a great time to learn, especially something you'd do with your hands or involving communication (painting, writing, public speaking etc.). With Mercury Retrograde until May 4, it's ideal to return to a hobby you once enjoyed or one you've always wanted to explore. This very communicative time is also ideal for catching up with family and friends -- you'll probably be extra chatty and exchanges should be a lot of fun!
