MAR 21 - APR 19 

Despite an adventurous theme and a strong desire for new experiences and opportunities, a more spiritual and dreamy tendency could prevail. The issue of beliefs might be on the agenda, which could affect how you approach an idea or project. Should you have faith that it will go as expected, or should you get help from a mentor with prior experience? A more practical focus suggests that you make a start that involves both options. The new moon on Thursday allows for a positive start to new ventures, especially those involving travel or study. And with chatty Mercury turning direct the same day, the coming weeks can go more smoothly, with fewer hitches and delays.

While you might be embracing more intense issues with a view toward making key changes, your social life sparkles, too. You might need to balance your inner and outer lives if you’re going to be productive this week. However, this could be difficult midweek, when a social event that seems particularly alluring takes you away from more pressing issues.  Thursday’s new moon in your sector of shared assets and deep psychological issues can be an opportunity for a new beginning. Even if you only have the intention of changing things, this can be enough. If you want to make concrete progress, you might need to let go of aspects of the past before you can move into the future.

With chatty Mercury turning direct on the same day, real estate deals could also proceed more smoothly.

OCT 23 - NOV 21 

Creative and romantic opportunities are plentiful this week, but they will require money. Think very carefully about the cost of a creative project or new relationship.

You could feel like retiring from the world and keeping yourself to yourself, but you might be dragged into an issue that has nothing much to do with you. A detached perspective would be very helpful here, enabling you to understand the truth of the matter. Still, this could rumble on for some time, so patience may be necessary. Despite this, Thursday’s new moon in a secluded sector of your chart could inspire you to adopt a practice that helps you stay calm in everyday life. Meditation or some other discipline might help you feel more at peace. Inquisitive Mercury turns direct on that same day, and so relationships may gradually improve and frustrations begin to ease.
