A full moon peaks in the early hours of Sunday morning (7:00 a.m. EST, July 9).

Intense emotions are heightened during this time by transformative Pluto. A metamorphosis can be revealed, and it’s a wonderful time to celebrate the changes you’ve implemented, slowly but surely, toward long-term goals.

The aftermath of powerful realizations means that usual agendas could feel stuffy, overbearing and smothering. On Monday, there’s a struggle as egos compete with a domineering undertone. Ease into the week and avoid playing out this conflict.

During the weekend, there’s potential for incredible connection, as communicator Mercury and lucky Jupiter set the stage for progressive talks — fair play and much excitement guaranteed.

1/12 :Aries: March 21 – April 19

It’s possible professional achievements have come to light over the weekend. Maybe you’ve had cause for celebration around a personal goal or experienced a public win.

However, this is an especially sensitive time for you, Aries, and you could come off as emotionally volatile. With passions running high, avoid power struggles as the week begins.

You can turn to partners, dear friends and close colleagues for love and support later in the week. The stars favor self-expression, with warmth in your personal relations over the weekend.

2/12 :Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Your personal journey of transformation comes into clear view over the weekend. Acknowledge what you’ve learned through your adventures, but don’t be a know-it-all, Taurus.

You’re in a great cycle to develop skills and connect the dots, but there’s a difference between amassing the facts and your broader goals of authentic knowledge.

Expressing your need for security could pay off during the weekend, so get in touch with your emotional response toward money and your busy schedule. You can negotiate positive outcomes for yourself now.

3/12 :Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Private affairs are highlighted over the weekend, involving either a steamy and intense liaison or investments of a legal or financial kind.

It’s easy to see the bigger picture, so take a good look at what’s unfolding now, Gemini. There are power plays around love or money as the week begins — game on!

You’re attracting lots of attention now and can really work the room this week; it’s a wonderful time to show off your talents, so use the opportunity to have fun and sparkle.

4/12 :Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Relationships and a key life partner are center stage over the weekend.

You could find you enter the week prepared to have big conversations about your needs, wants and priorities. Navigate egos with a soft and tender touch — including your own, Crab.

During the weekend, a dash of practical thinking can infinitely help your domestic position. There may be creative ways to run your happy home in a more efficient way — for example, better financial planning behind the scenes. Consider all the possibilities now.

5/12 :Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22

The weekend might have been exhausting, overwhelming or presented power struggles — unfortunately, that tension extends into Monday.

Though there’s been a need to honor your busy, productive side — celebrating how you’re called to show up in everyday life — you must now balance duties with a very real priority. Steer your focus and attention toward self-care, Leo.

As the week unfolds, you can ease into a far more comfortable position; there’s harmony in your interactions with close friends and community, so embrace exchanges with local connections.

6/12 :Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

The full moon reveals your private passions. A hobby, pet project or romantic encounter that’s all-consuming comes to the fore over the weekend.

However, your intense focus must compete with a highly sociable cycle; group activities call and dividing your attention could require delicate balance.

Set about bringing closure to a financial or work-related matter, as you can get results this week, Virgo. As you bring about a finale, notice that the process underway has a positive impact on your role.

7/12 :Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

The weekend may have seen some pretty emotional issues unearthed, with intense feelings around home or family coming up.

This theme extends into Monday, but you’re in a stellar cycle for recognition too. Honor a sensitive mood yet keep your eyes on the prize, Libra.

Thankfully, you’re back in the zone as the week progresses, with some favorable conditions for networking and generally getting on famously in a group. Mix and mingle into the weekend — you never know who you might meet.

8/12 :Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

Information might have come to light over the weekend; perhaps you’ve revealed an authentic opinion, one aligned with your true outlook.

Ideas can be acknowledged, but moving into a new week, remember to use your stealthy precision to deliver messages in the public domain.

Communication calls for balance now, and with Mercury passing through the most public area of your horoscope, you’re more easily heard. Later in the week and next weekend, you can gain support for projects developing in private, so connect deeply in conversation. Harness your capacity for intensity, Scorpio.

9 /12: Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

9/12 :Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

The spotlight’s on your role, income and value over the weekend, with clarity around what you do.

However, joint ventures are also in focus, and there could be tension between your contribution and theirs or a power struggle to navigate.

Expect relief as the week unfolds. Your sense of adventure is greatly supported, so step out in a group and think big. The stars align for blue-sky thinking in a crowd, with stellar networking opportunities when you venture out over the following weekend.

10 /12: Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

10/12 :Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

La luna shines brightly in your sign in the early hours of Sunday, highlighting your personal efforts and transformation — celebrate progress, Capricorn

With a focus on relationships, you may be tuned into what others want, but compromise is a theme to be expertly navigated in the aftermath of this full moon, which could reveal upcoming goals on your path.

Toward the weekend, the stars offer space to talk through your plans; with the road ahead now clearer, discuss your needs, including the support you expect from others.

11 /12: Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

11/12 :Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

Light floods the darkest spaces over the weekend — the full moon illuminates your innermost psyche, showing how far you’ve come in a transformational process and bringing up issues for their finale. If there’s more work to be done behind the scenes, it’s a wonderful time for it.

It’s easier conversing with partners, with fun exchanges to be had. Rapport is strong now, and toward the weekend, a significant other could fuel the fires of your imagination, assisting you with blue-sky thinking. Bounce ideas off your favorite collaborator.

12/12 :Pisces: Feb. 19 – March 20

The moon shines brightly and intensely in your friendship zone over the weekend, and those emotional full moon vibes could carry on into the new week, Pisces.

Anticipate power struggles among your network, peers or colleagues, and be prepared to tone down your personal passions within wider circles.

As the week marches on, you could become inclined to bring order to finances, agreements or joint affairs. You’re keenly aware of how to improve a situation that’s been developing, so introduce a touch of organized flair.
