All Signs: It is the beginning of March and there is two out and the bases are loaded. Not only do we have a Full Moon this week, the planet Mercury starts slowing down on Wednesday before it goes retrograde next Monday. (That again?) And after Thursday’s Full Moon, Friday and Saturday look challenging. (We all know challenging is a euphemism for bummer!) And of course, before the Full Moon, there’s always that inevitable build-up of tension. (Hey, I’m sugarcoating this.) Seriously, it’s minor hangnail stuff. I like how Alice Walker thinks: The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” (Of course, some give up their power by not paying their bill.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You might feel tension with co-workers building up this week, due to the Full Moon. (You’ll notice it Wednesday/Thursday.) Fortunately, you are hiding right now, as it were. And who can blame you, since Mercury is going retrograde in your sign! (Dontcha love it?) But lo! What is that clink of coin I hear? Opportunities to make money, or boost your earnings, or buy something beautiful for yourself or others, or lay the groundwork for getting a better job all exist for you this week. Yes! This makes sense because you are taking your powah. From this year forward, you are working towards a career peak around 2018. Remember this and wear deodorant when you go out. (I’m so hot!)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Any of the difficulties you experience this week will likely manifest in areas related to romance, love affairs, vacations, the arts, the entertainment world, show business and the hospitality industry. (Oh no! All the fun stuff.) Difficulties with children will also be par for the course. Fortunately, Tauruses make the best parents in the zodiac (did you know this?). That’s because Taurus parents know the first thing you do with kids is give them three square meals a day and a good bed to sleep in. The basics. Early in the week, you’ll feel sweet and sympathetic with others. Kind of gosh, golly, gee about something. No doubt this will endear you to someone. Hey, don’t knock it. Endearing is good.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Everyone notices you now because the Sun is still high in your chart. (Bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs especially notice you!) You might want to keep this in mind if you feel like acting out (the Full Moon will probably put you in a bind by pulling you in two directions, trying to please home and family as well as your career and your job). Oy! Not an easy trick to pull off. Something unusual in your family setting will take place late in the week. It could affect your home or a family member. It might even have something to do with your children. (I’ve got the place childproofed but the kids still keep getting in!)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Because the Moon is your ruler, naturally you will feel the tension this week before Thursday’s Full Moon. Do be careful because this particular Full Moon can attract accident-prone situations to you, especially walking, jogging and driving. Well, I would have to include speaking as well. That covers a pretty broad range, doesn’t it? In other words, watch what you say and watch what you do. Nevertheless, despite these tensions, group activities will be rewarding for you. In fact, a platonic or casual friendship could heat up into something romantic. (Ooo la la.) Something from your past, probably related to bosses or authority figures, is starting to come your way. You might want to look extra-good.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This Full Moon is going to bring financial pressure to your scene. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?) You know that you spend big — what Leo doesn’t? But the joke is, you can do an about-face so fast it can leave others slack-jawed; but you must be motivated. For example, you will save fantastically if you want to go on a vacation or want to buy something special. Again, you have to be motivated. You’re not the type to save for a rainy day, but a great raincoat? Now, that’s another thing! You’ll be juggling bills and expenses related to others to hopefully dovetail with your own earnings. Ouch! Hey, join the club. We number millions. And we’ve got cool jackets!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place this week. Meanwhile, back in the ring, you’ve got your gloves on and you’re ready for bear! (That’s because Mars is in your sign now and for months ahead.) Connect the dots. This Full Moon will make you impatient with partners and close friends and vice versa. And you will probably speak out about it! If you’re in an abusive situation, this is a good thing. But if everything is relatively mellow, others will be shocked at your treatment of them. Count to five before you speak. Many of you can improve your finances now, especially through the resources and assistance of others. Get ready for ex-partners to materialize out of the ether.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Just accept the fact that the Full Moon on Thursday will create some tension (before and after), either to your health, your job or both. This might simply mean that you feel impatient with someone or disappointed with your own progress about something. Many of you are on a health kick right now. I can relate. After taking years to gain weight, I am disappointed if I don’t lose a few pounds the first afternoon of dieting. (I mean, is there no justice?) Fortunately, romance is very sweet and sexual this week, and the assets and wealth of others can benefit you. Don’t worry about this Full Moon too much. Just remember to cut others a lot of slack, which you like to do anyway.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Tension with children, the arts, sports, show business, the entertainment world and hospitality industry are all strong possibilities because of the Full Moon that occurs this week. In fact, this tension might even manifest with children — namely, your kids! Obviously, your only recourse is patience, tolerance and a bit of understanding. (Ya think?) Who wants to exacerbate this problem? Far better to put out little fires before they become bigger ones. You might feel this tension with a friend or a member of a group as well. Fortunately, sweet (and romantic) support from partners and other friends will tide you over these rough spots. In fact, partnerships look excellent for you this year!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your focus on home, family and your personal life continues. However, ironically, the Full Moon this week challenges everything at home. Difficulties with parents or authority figures, or demands from your home and career could be tough to juggle. In addition, relatives from the past are back in your life again. Do your best to avoid family squabbles. Social occasions, romance, sports and the arts are all sources of fun and pleasure. Continue to look for ways to improve your job (and your health) because they exist. (Of course, no amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Take extra precautions this week. You might blurt out something you later regret, or you might do something regrettable. It’s not because you’ve lost your good judgment; you’re always aware of your place in society and what others think. This kind of accidental slip will simply be the Full Moon playing tricks on you. A sense of haste or agitation could make you flustered, which in turn could cause an accident. Therefore, chill out. If business from the past ó especially with siblings and relatives — arises again, don’t let it bother you. (Admittedly, it’s hard to keep your shirt on when you want to get something off your chest.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You feel increasing concern about your finances. You want to take care of your own needs (naturally) but you also feel an obligation to address the needs of others or perhaps to repay something. (A Full Moon situation always makes you feel you can’t do both.) Many of you are worried about debt right now. Take note: If you are looking for work or ways to boost your income, I suggest you return to previous ideas, old jobs and places where you applied before. In other words, retrace your steps. This way you’ll be working with the energy of the pending Mercury retrograde and it will actually help you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Once a year, the Full Moon is opposite your sign. This is what is happening this week. Naturally, this creates tension with partners and close friends. You are inclined to feel victimized when you’re upset. (It’s a Pisces thang.) Don’t do this. We all have bummer Full Moons, cíest la vie. With Neptune now in your sign, your sensitivity to everything is heightened! (And you are highly sensitive to begin with.) Fortunately, siblings, relatives and neighbours are sweetly supportive. Go with what works and forget about what doesn’t work. Be like Scarlett O’Hara, ìI’ll cry about that tomorrow.î (Actually, laughter keeps everyone off guard; they wonder what you’re up to.)
