Al­though the morn­ing could be some­thing of a push or loss, Fri­day’s new moon in Aquar­ius ends the day and the work­week on the up­beat.

For the past six weeks, Mars in Pisces has stirred po­ten­tials and prom­ise, but it has also cre­ated waves of un­cer­tainty, con­fu­sion, loss, and dis­il­lu­sion­ment. As of late Fri­day night, Mars treks into Aries, its home sign. This bold and brash in­flu­ence co­in­cides very well with the start of the Chi­nese New Year of the Fire Rooster. Mars in Aries in­creases drive, phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, ini­tia­tive, pas­sion, and fight­ing spirit. Watch for this tran­sit to light a new fire (or few!) and to speed up the ac­tion. Satur­day’s stars dish up the best of the week­end. The day can be pro­duc­tive or fun, take your pick. Scout around, check out what’s new, at­tend a work­shop or trade show, or get to­gether with a good friend or a few. The Aquar­ius moon keeps it in­ter­est­ing.

While Sun­day’s moon in Pisces is ideal for a day of rest, Mer­cury con­joined with Pluto in Capri­corn sug­gests there is some­thing im­por­tant to fin­ish off or to start. It is an op­ti­mum tran­sit for dig­ging deeper, de­ci­sion­mak­ing, stud­ies, get­ting men­tally or phys­i­cally or­ga­nized, re­solv­ing it, or mak­ing the com­mit­ment. What’s said, done, signed, or agreed upon holds last­ing im­pact.

Mon­day’s stars are fluid and smooth-rolling. You can coast and write it off or you can take ad­van­tage of it and gain. Tues­day/wed­nes­day, a feisty and frisky Aries moon picks up the pace. Tues­day evening, Mer­cury/ Uranus gets the ac­tion go­ing, per­haps un­ex­pect­edly so.

ARIES March 20–April 19

You’ll pick up more en­ergy and speed as Mars gains fresh trac­tion in Aries. In an­other week, Venus will grace your ready-set-go sign too. Sun­day’s Mer­cury/pluto keeps you fo­cused on get­ting the se­ri­ous stuff un­der bet­ter con­trol. Even so, on Mon­day, go with the flow, ease into it, don’t force it. Tues­day/wed­nes­day, the Aries moon puts you and it on full thrust.

TAU­RUS April 20–May 20

Han­ker­ing for some­thing fresh and new? Haven’t been able to find the courage, ini­tia­tive, in­spi­ra­tion, or right op­por­tu­nity? You will now. Fri­day on­ward, the lib­er­at­ing new moon sets the stage in a trig­ger­ing or cat­a­pult­ing way. Mars, Mer­cury, and the rest of the stel­lar gang also boost prospects, need, or ur­gency. Mon­day is an easy go. Tues­day through Thurs­day fast-tracks you or it.

GEM­INI May 21–June 21

Aquar­ius month is one of your best for travel, big and bold ini­tia­tives, or for hit­ting the re­fresh but­ton. Re­gard­ing all the above, Fri­day’s new moon and Mars into Aries sup­port you well. Jupiter/uranus keeps fresh ideas, prod­uct, and op­por­tu­nity on the front burner. Sun­day/mon­day, let it slide. Fri­day, Satur­day, Tues­day, and Wed­nes­day, dive into it, take a stab at it, go for it.

CANCER June 21–July 22

One way or an­other, the next few days will launch you on your way. Look to Fri­day’s new moon, Mars in Aries, and Mer­cury/pluto to put you on a faster for­ward re­gard­ing fi­nances, surgery, a life­style or ca­reer change, an im­por­tant ne­go­ti­a­tion or talk. Wasn’t there one minute; is the next. You may face fresh chal­lenge but, more im­por­tantly, you also face fresh op­por­tu­nity.

LEO July 22–Au­gust 22

Fri­day’s new moon boosts so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and per­sonal in­ter­ests. Mars, freshly into Aries, helps you to stay con­fi­dent and a big step ahead. Sun­day’s Mer­cury/pluto can force an is­sue, chal­lenge you to make a tough de­ci­sion, or put you to work, but once it’s han­dled, you can breathe again. Mon­day is easy-rolling. Tues­day/wed­nes­day, some­thing fresh, quick, and/or fast hits the spot.

VIRGO Au­gust 22–Septem­ber 22

A new health, work, and fix-it cy­cle be­gins with Fri­day’s new moon. Don’t hes­i­tate to spend on a new com­puter or other ne­ces­si­ties, on cour­ses, coun­selling, and such. Up­grades of all kinds are favoured. Over the next few weeks, new so­lu­tions, more use­ful in­for­ma­tion, and ad­vice are on the ready dial-up. As of Sun­day, you’ll make bet­ter, faster progress. It’s break­through time.

LI­BRA Septem­ber 22–Oc­to­ber 23

Jupiter in Li­bra con­tin­ues to keep the fire in you well lit. Mars in Aries, start­ing on Fri­day, pro­duces even more fric­tion or spark. The start of Chi­nese New Year can be aus­pi­cious, es­pe­cially so if you are born on or near Septem­ber 30/Oc­to­ber 1. The stars can pro­duce a mixed bag of chal­lenge and op­por­tu­nity, but mostly you’re on the gain.

SCOR­PIO Oc­to­ber 23–Novem­ber 21

A new ad­dress, at­ti­tude, or fresh liv­ing-with-your­self cy­cle launches now. Fri­day’s new moon also favours home ren­o­va­tions, new projects, mar­ket­ing, or busi­ness ven­tures. Mars in Aries is great for start­ing a job or health reg­i­men. Sun­day’s Mer­cury/ Pluto calls for a re­think, more study, or a fur­ther com­mit­ment. Mon­day starts the week on a smooth roll. Tues­day/wed­nes­day, tackle it fresh.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS Novem­ber 21–De­cem­ber 21

Fri­day/satur­day, get out and about. One thing sparks the next thing. En­ter­tain­ment and like-minded folk can be read­ily found. Spon­tane­ity picks it best. The new moon in Aquar­ius and Mars in Aries push the re­fresh but­ton on your en­ergy, en­thu­si­asm, good ideas, and so­cial in­ter­est. Mon­day can slip by, but as of Tues­day, you’re back in the game and hit­ting full steam ahead.

CAPRI­CORN De­cem­ber 21–Jan­uary 19

Mer­cury in Capri­corn keeps you es­pe­cially driven and mo­ti­vated. It can put you un­der pres­sure, too. Launch­ing on Fri­day but good for the next few weeks, the new moon and Mars in Aries sug­gest some­thing im­por­tant is shap­ing up. Sun­day’s Mer­cury/pluto puts it on the front burner. Tues­day’s Mer­cury/ Uranus en­light­ens, frees, un­leashes, or spring­boards you.

AQUAR­IUS Jan­uary 20–Fe­bru­ary 18

Fri­day could start out slow, but it’s likely to fin­ish on the up­beat. Thanks to Mars in Aries, a fired-up and fast-track few weeks lie ahead. Be brave and bold. Aim to stand out from the crowd; try your luck with a new au­di­ence or a spe­cial some­one. Satur­day, and Mon­day through Wed­nes­day, your stars are op­ti­mized.

PISCES Fe­bru­ary 18–March 20

Mars leaves Pisces on Fri­day but Venus stays with you for an­other week. Con­sider it the best of both worlds. Things have a way of sort­ing them­selves out and/or show­ing up at the right time. Fri­day’s new moon and Sun­day’s Mer­cury/pluto set you onto a fresh page. Mon­day, go by feel. Tues­day/wed­nes­day, you’re quick on the up­take.
