Planets hunker down in the Virgo constellation this week, favoring busy organization and productivity. By the early hours of Wednesday, Venus and Mars, Mercury Sol and Lune will all be scattered throughout this helpful sign of harvest, ready for the new moon moment (1.30 a.m. EST). This is typically a wonderful time to contemplate healthy fresh starts for the six-month cycle ahead.

However, connective Mercury (governor of our thinking realms) is caught up in a distracting exchange with Neptune — it’s even more important to stick to the schedule and finely tune your focus. By Friday, the fog clears, and powerful clarity comes around the best route forward.

3/12 :Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Idealizing home and family life is an attractive notion this week, Gemini, with six planets gathered in your emotional fourth house — including your ruler, Mercury, and a refreshing new moon. But strive for moderation, being mindful of potential blind spots. Watery Neptune is somewhat clouding your view, which could see information slip through the net; use extra precision.

A stellar connection is made early in the week, bringing news or information your way. You could experience a breakthrough with friends or a close, personal relationship.

4/12 :Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Wednesday’s new moon brings focus to connectivity — how you tee up with close friends, associates, neighbors and siblings; how you connect with your local environment — places of practical use; and how you relate to others through use of pen and tongue.

With great concentration on relating to your immediate world, refresh your notion of self-expression and kinship — without idealizing your ties. Friday provides a choice day for powerful exchanges with a collaborator, while earlier in the week, your role could deliver pleasant surprises. Be open to receiving, Cancer.

Excitement, fun and affection launch you into the week, as Sunday’s stars keep the surprises and adventure coming. Then, full focus turns toward practical planning ahead of the Virgo new moon — financial and material matters can come under a microscope as well as realistic ideas about your personal contribution.

It’s a compelling time to run a fine-tooth comb through expenses and earnings, outgoings and income, savings and investments. By Friday, you’ll have a more solid notion of your role and position, though the details aren’t entirely clear-cut.

Friday is a significant power day for your sense of creative expression, romance and passions, and although you can concentrate on your plans in the days ahead, it’s far easier to think with true resolve at the week’s end.

Private affairs deliver sweet and steamy surprises on Sunday, providing ultimate closure before you focus on new adventures.

The week ahead centers on your most private and subconscious desires and holds the potential for a journey into healing, detox or purging of unwanted habits. It’s a powerful time to break seemingly ingrained patterns; surrender to the process. Do get clarity about what you’re aiming for, organizing your thoughts and goals.

Early in the week, you could experience surprising progress, gaining security around a contract or intimate partnership as reassurance arrives in your private emotional zone.

Exciting relationship dynamics introduce the week with a glittering bang. Exchanges are peppered with unexpected news — once you’re beyond the initial surprises, turn your attention to the underlying practicalities that warrant your attention, Aquarius.

The new moon falls in your resourceful eighth house of private affairs and mergers, indicating a time to focus on finances, joint ventures, property and investments. The devil’s in the details, so use a fine-tooth comb across contractual agreements and wait awhile before committing; dig deep to find further potential sources of income.
