Put your social life on the back burner for a hot sec, and focus on your goals and your reputation. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
While Mars was hanging out in Taurus, your home and family will be at the forefront of your mind, and will be taking up a large chunk of your energy and resources. With Mars turning retrograde, you’ll notice your plans slowing. Don’t discourage, Water Bearer. This slow-down is actually for your advantage later on. Focus instead on the new opportunities the New Moon brings on the 3rd. Think travel, education, or even legal matters.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The New Moon on the 3rd brings new beginnings where your resources and properties are concerned. October is a perfect time to reexamine your budget, or reap the benefits of your shared property or venture. In either case, you have three weeks to make up your mind before Jupiter moves on into Scorpio. The Full Moon in Aries on the 17th occurs in the sector of your chart tied to personal income and property, indicating a new leaf is turning. So secure that bag, Pisces!
