The new moon in Pisces occurs Wednesday. If it feels like life has been building up toward some great moment of importance, that’s probably because it is. With the wisdom of Pisces and the clean slate brought about by the new moon, stay optimistic about the future. Optimism is our only way out of this. 

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

It’s hard to stay focused. You’re likely an already scatterbrained individual with an affinity for frivolity. This makes the present moment exponentially harder. All fire signs seem to be struggling with this right now, as there are no planets currently in a fire sign. Despite life hitting a sort of doldrums, know that the wind will pick back up again soon.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Be romantic! Spend money on a loved one (if you have the means) this week to show that you care. Maybe they’ve been craving their favorite flavor of cake. Expect nothing in return — be kind for the sake of kindness. This is something you may forget, perhaps usually indulging in life’s pleasures by yourself instead of with the company of others. 

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Keep using your words. Some may see you as pushy or irrational, but the reality is that you’re strong and you know how to express what you need. Something about life right now is telling you to be an active participant, and you must be willing to oblige. Step into your power, not only to uplift yourself but also those around you.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Take a “midnight train going anywhere.” Wanderlust has likely hit you hard as spring break is right around the corner. When that moment comes, do it as safely as possible. The pandemic is not over yet. That said, life is fleeting! Follow those urges to go on road trips and briefly abandon society. Then, come back to us refreshed.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)

Find inner peace. It’s difficult for you to stay calm while everyone and everything else triggers your anxieties. There are so many methods of relaxation at your fingertips that you may be unwilling to try for fear they won’t work. Even if they don’t work, you will have at least gotten some valuable me-time in.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Stay focused. You have something big coming up and it deserves your full attention. Don’t stress too much, though — you’ll be great — but make sure that you give this project or event the care it needs. If you don’t, you’ll end up feeling guilty over it. That’s simply unnecessary; you’re already doing as much as you can.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Keep pushing your boundaries. Explore outside your comfort zone. You will feel uncomfortable only for a little while, and then it will be gone. You are one of the more introverted air signs, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Still, there are likely friends to be made outside of your bubble, and they will be excited to get to know you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

You should feel accomplished. You have been working really hard, and you’ve done some incredible work both physically and mentally. Keep it up while you can! Celebrate what you’ve achieved, and rest when you’re able. The fruit of your labor is finally here, and you can display it for the whole world if you want to.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

You can’t say “YOLO” all the time. Take better care of yourself and your surroundings. It might be time to deep-clean your bedroom and reorganize a certain aspect of your space. Continually ignoring your issues because you think you’re strong enough to cope will only create bigger problems for you down the road.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Don’t put on a brave face unless you absolutely have to. As a Capricorn, you’re likely to hide your pain from others because you believe you can deal with them independently. Showing vulnerability is not weakness; it’s a strength. The more you hide it, the less people will be inclined to help you when you need it. And it’s OK to need help!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Reconnect with life. You’re currently distancing yourself from something or someone. That’s fine — you’re probably just anxious that things are going wrong. Take a twisted comfort in the fact that things eventually have to go wrong in order for other things to go right. The world is unbalanced, but it’s trying its best.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Happy birth season! Be frank with people and express your true desires this week. If you want to start a relationship with someone, say so; if you want a raise and you know you deserve it, say so. You have agency over your life that you haven’t fully taken, so stop being passive and start believing in yourself and your capabilities.
