If you thought this week would be tranquil, you were wrong. On Monday, there will be a new moon in Scorpio. New moons represent beginnings and positivity, and this new moon will be particularly influential as Uranus will oppose it. Uranus is the planet of change and unpredictability, so with the new moon in Scorpio bringing positive change in love and other emotional pursuits, sudden change is bound to happen. With the moon opposing Uranus, this week may be filled with newfound energy and motivation. If you were looking for a quick caffeine boost, look no further. This week’s astrology will provide all the energy you need. If that was not enough, Mars meets with the sun on Sunday. As Mars is Scorpio’s ruling planet, intensity is a large theme of this week. 

With an abundance of intense astrological placements, be prepared for unexpected, yet positive change. Here is some advice on how to navigate the unfamiliarity this week may bring: 

Aries (March 21 – April 19) 🔥 

For you, this week is all about money. Financial improvements are bound to start coming in. If you’ve felt robbed at a current job, be prepared to receive compensation for all the hard work you’ve put in. It may be a good time to look into investing as well. For you particularly, the profits made from any financial changes completed this week will pay off. Use this positive, abundant energy to your advantage.  

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 🪴

As one of the most stubborn zodiacs, trust has never been your strong suit. This week, you’ll begin to reevaluate any built-up trust issues that have impacted romantic and platonic relationships. Love may not have been easy for you this year, but be prepared to have a change of heart and be open to new connections. If you think with your intuition, things will work out for you.    

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) 🌬

You’re a naturally energetic individual, but with the added energy this week, your daily activities will benefit. You may feel compelled to go to the gym or exercise your mind. Your hustle will increase, and your work will improve. Use this energy boost to your advantage, and get all activities you put off done. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) 🌊

On Monday, the new moon in Scorpio will open up an opportunity for you to present a new idea and/or skill to the people around you. Although being the center of attention is not your vibe, you’ll find enjoyment in this opportunity and it will benefit your career. Throughout the week, you’ll be making more connections, possibly romantic, and feel at peace with yourself.  

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) 🔥

If you’ve been having family issues the last few months, you’re not alone. A lot of fire signs have faced the same issues, but with the new moon in Scorpio on Monday, some of these issues may be addressed. Be prepared to tidy up your home, and begin to feel comfortable with your loved ones. This week is all about letting people get close to you and expressing hidden emotions.    

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) 🪴

New travel and career opportunities are bound to present themselves this week. You’re a fan of comfort and expected activities, but these opportunities are not. While opening yourself up to new experiences, ensure your loved ones are there to comfort you if you get overwhelmed. Anxiety may be at a high, but you’ll also feel ecstatic. Prepare yourself, but allow yourself to try new things. 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) 🌬

This week may seem like every other week, but you will be getting an unexpected payout for something completed this past summer. A close friend may have issues in their own life this week, so make sure not to take on their issues as your own. Focus on yourself and your new payout this week instead of getting overly involved on others’ issues. 

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) 🌊

The new moon on Monday will serve as a positive life restart. Your style, health and personal connections will all improve after the new moon. You haven’t had the best year, so this new moon is well deserved. You’ll finally begin to feel like yourself again and learn to indulge in things you once loved. Old hobbies that died off because of your busy schedule will return to your forefront. Have fun this week!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) 🔥

As the sign with the most pent up energy, you find difficulty in staying still and resting. With the astrology this week, you’ll face a situation that requires you to take a step back and relax. This may sound unsettling, but don’t worry, this week serves as a break for you to effectively get back on your feet. You deserve time to rest, even if you don’t think so. 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) 🪴

You’ve had a lot of social events you’ve been obligated to attend. On Monday, this cycle will officially come to an end. No more awkward weddings and/or parties are bound to happen, and if they do, you’re more than likely to enjoy them. Your social life will now be dictated by you and what you want to attend, not what you feel you must attend. Look forward to gaining back your independence.  

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) 🌬

You may have felt disconnected from your public image, but this week allows you to change how others perceive you. This week, you may make a good first impression on someone of importance that can positively impact your professional life. Others who once had a negative perception of you may give you the benefit of the doubt, allowing you to dispose of tension within career-related connections. 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) 🌊

The energy brought this week will open your eyes to what you truly want to focus on in regards to your career. You find it difficult to focus on one thing at once, but once you put your mind to something, you go for it. The new aspirations you generate will become long-term goals that contribute to your success. Make sure you stay on the best path for you and incorporate your professional goals into your personal goals.
