On the 3rd Mercury comes out of its shadow period after having been Retrograde for most of March, and it finally shakes off Neptuneso you can expect greater clarity and less technological trouble. To help you on your way, Mercury will form an exact sextile to stabilizing Saturn on the 7th; it’s just what we need after the long period of anxiety-provoking Mercury messiness. Around (and especially on) this date will be an excellent period to catch up on the details of your life – your inbox, your bills, and your strategies for moving forward. Get a handle on your affairs, fortify your plans, and if necessary, correct any misunderstandings that have been festering.
On the 5th there will be a New Moon at 1:50amPST, at 15°Aries. This marks a time to think about what you want. We want things because we believe we’ll be happier for it. Does what you want actually bring you happiness?

Here’s a Pro Tip for cultivating new growth: What you focus your emotional energy on is what will deliver returns in your life. In other words, saying “I want love,” while being motivated by a fear of being alone, does not effectively express your desire to the Universe. 

If you want to see results, your motivation needs to come from the embodied desire of what you want, not in pursuit of the absence of what you fear.

Enjoy this New Moon intention-setting exercise that I’ve named The Three Seeds : one for you, one for all of us, and one for your ambitions. Spend some time energizing your intentions by bringing greater clarity to them. Use these questions as journal prompts; if some of them don’t resonate for you, just leave them out.


You matter so much!

Prioritize the things that improve your quality of life:

What makes me happy in my life as it is?

What are three ways that I've been prioritizing these things? 

How, if at all, do they need to change?

Can I make those changes in big or small ways now?

Do I believe that the things I desire will bring me happiness?

Why or why not?

Can I find happiness now, without those things?

Why or why not? 


You are a citizen of the world!

Being a part of the solution can look many, many ways. Find yours:

What are the three things that I am the most concerned about in the world around me?

Am I doing anything to help improve them?

If no: where can I seek help in coming up with strategies for taking my first steps?

If yes: Are my actions serving their intended purposes? Are they sustainable for me? 


What you do counts!

Adulting with the New Moon:

What are your top three long-term (as in things you want to achieve in the next 10+ years) goals?

How are you prioritizing them?

What needs to happen, and what do you need to change in order to be on track?

What are your top three short-term goals (as in things you want to achieve in the next year)?

How are you prioritizing them?

What needs to happen, and what do you need to change in order to be on track?


Finally, on the 9th amorous Venus will meet idealistic Neptune in Pisces. Hold on to your purse strings! This energy can coincide with emotional and impulsive spending on things that you don’t need. Beware of people, situations, and purchases that seem too good to be true around this date – they probably are. This transit can find you distracted by a romantic delusion that might seem like it can save you from yourself. Don’t give your power away when in reality you’re the one who's meant to save you. Love is meant to fill up your life, not drain you. Practice healthy boundaries around this date.

On episode 40 of my weekly podcast, Ghost of a Podcast, I break down your weekly horoscope plus Uranus in Taurus: what it means, what to expect, and how to make the most of it.

Listen here, or if you prefer to watch it with closed captioning, you can do so here.

March 21-April 19

The New Moon in your sign on the 5th provides an opportunity to turn over a new leaf, Aries. Be intentional about what you call in because you’re likely to get it. Instead of allowing yourself to be motivated by fear or competition, strive to stay in alignment with what you believe in and what deserves your formidable energy. Focus on getting the you part of your relationships and projects in the right place this week, my love.

You have some decisions to make. This isn’t the time to allow what you hope doesn’t happen to direct your actions, Taurus. Just because things have gone poorly in the past, doesn’t mean that they’re destined to not work out. Align your actions and attitudes with what you want to choose. As much as you may fear change, you also have awesome strength of character. Use it to your advantage this week.

May 21-June 21

When everything is changing, it’s pretty destabilizing. It’s easy to chase the energy of unrest in hopes that you’ll outpace it, but that’s not your best move, Twin Star. Focus your thoughts and efforts on what you want to achieve. If you allow yourself to stay in a constant state of reaction, you’ll never get where you need to go. There’s a more efficient way than the one you’ve been using, but you don’t need to figure it out on your own. Seek wise counsel this week.

June 22-July 22

Sometimes you just don’t have the answer, and that’s okay. If you can sit in uncertainty without trying to organize it into something that feels safe, you will hit the truth of the matter, Moonchild. It’s possible to seek balance in wavering circumstances, but it requires that you don’t seek your center from outside of yourself. Ask for help, but not fixes. Instead of trying to meet everyone's needs, seek your truth. Make choices you can live with, my love.

July 23-Aug. 22

When you’ve taken on too much, you can’t help but feel exhausted and depleted. This week, it’s your duty to reassess the commitments and habits that you’ve taken on lately. Now that you’ve had the chance to try them out, it’s wise to ask yourself how they’re working for you. There’s no shame in changing your mind or finding that the reality of a thing is different than you imagined. Don’t let hubris keep you locked in an unhealthy position, Leo.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

It’s time to let go of your attachment to what others think about you. You can’t know where other people are coming from when they give you side eye or when they say something mean. Instead of taking things so personally, try an experiment this week: assume that every person you interact with is going through something deep and distracting right now. Assume that their vibes are not about you. Your vibes are about you, Virgo.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You aren’t there yet, but that’s not the point of this week’s horoscope. Now is your time, Libra. Setting intentions, developing greater understanding about who you are, and establishing what you’re willing to compromise versus what’s outside of your morality are keys to successful adulting. It’s time for you to get right with where you’re at or to change it. You can’t always get what you want, but by attempting to make the best choices available to you, you get what you need.

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You’re at the end, and now is not the time to jump to conclusions or to be rash. You’ve been going through a lot in recent months, and it’s not only revealed a lot about the people in your life, but it’s revealed a lot to you about yourself as well. What you do with all this information is important this week. Instead of trying to change others, change your own sweet and sour self, Scorpio. Put into practice the boundaries that you need in order to feel right.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

As you grow, your opportunities for healing expand with you. As fabulous as that sounds, the reality is that it might feel at times like you're having to scale higher and higher walls. Your job isn’t to have no problems; it’s to develop more grace and skill in coping with them when they come up. You don’t only need to find your will, but you need to honor it in the most effective ways possible. Don’t lose sight of where you’re going just because the path is different than you imagined.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

It’s time to lick your wounds, not pick at scabs, Capricorn. As cheesy as this sounds, the only thing you truly need is to nurture yourself through your concerns. Obsessively trying to figure things out is going to backfire on you because it means you've lost perspective. If the things you want don’t bring you greater happiness, why prioritize them so dearly? Show yourself and your situation compassion as you strive to figure out what’s motivating you and what you need to do about it.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There's something in your life that you’ve been struggling with, and it’s time to look at it straight on, Aquarius. You don’t need to find the right answer to be on the right path. Develop a broader perspective so that you can look at the big picture, and consider your needs from there. Make sure that what you feel called to do isn’t at the expense of future you’s needs. Seek a balance between satisfying your desires and investing in your tomorrows this week.

Feb. 19-March 20

When you’re tapped and feeling out of sorts, it’s tempting to confuse how you feel with what you are. This moment is not the sum total of your value, Pisces. When you attach too much meaning to a single moment or problem, you get disempowered and cut off from your vast resources. Take a deep breath, and realign yourself with your inner guidance and the lessons you’ve learned through sweat and tears. Trust yourself, my love.
