You’ll have a hard time with Mercury going retrograde and we won’t sugar coat that – so be ready! Later this month there’s a Worm Moon which comes just a day before your month and will help clear your head about relationships and partnerships.
April 20th – May 20th
Just as we warned your pal Aries, this month with Mercury going retrograde is no joke. Be prepared to tackle the slightest misunderstanding, confusion and drama. The good news is that your sign makes you pretty grounded which will come in handy and help you look at the positive side of things. As we begin to move into spring, you’ll feel as though everything is coming down at once so take a deep breath and plan a relaxed weekend to refuel your body and mind before April comes around.
May 21st – June 20th
This month is all about work, work, work dear Gemini! You’re starting to ask yourself questions about whether the job you’re in is really the one you want to stay in – use the new moon to give you some perspective and thinking out loud about the future. But that’s not all there is, the end of the month will hit you like a wave of positive energy and passion – expect to take your flirtations to the next level, but don’t forget to look out for that Worm Moon!
June 21st – July 22nd
With Venus starting off the month in your house of intimacy, there’s a good chance you’ll be revisiting some old flings, getting nostalgic about how quickly time passes and whether you’ve missed out on some things along the way. That’s all well and normal, so dive into those feelings and visit that friend you promised to see months ago, and take a leap of faith and ask that crush out! Lastly, Mercury going retrograde and the Worm Moon taking action will have you facing some issues, but perhaps they’re for the best…
July 23rd – August 22nd
There’s no denying that March will present a variety of issues – but we know how well you proceed with facing them, so get ready as Mercury goes retrograde and a few fires will be lit up both at work and in your personal life. If you feel like things are getting out of your control, take a step back and don’t let your ego get the best of you. Instead, hold your head high and be the bigger person when it comes to arguments.
August 23rd – September 22nd
A new moon always gets your creative side brewing with exciting ideas to think about for the future. But before you take any step further, wait until Mercury is out on March 28th. In the romance department you’re longing to settle down with a partner and find some much-needed stability, so who’s stopping you? You’ll also get some clarity about your finances on the Worm Moon, and you’ll start to feel optimistic about the future and those ideas you mentioned.
September 23rd – October 22nd
Libra, this month is all about you showing your inner and outer beauty to take care of yourself, as well as those around you. The new moon will be the perfect opportunity to show everyone how balanced you are, and perhaps you can teach a few things about how a new routine brings great progress. On the downside, Mercury going retrograde and the Worm Moon will force you to face roadblocks and stay zen and practical. We know you don’t need help, but perhaps consider it!
October 23rd – November 21st
Life can hit you with unexpected emotions, but don’t let them get the better of your mind before you’re 100% sure. The new moon is here to help you resist going in all the way and having hopeful expectations from everyone. Your sign is one of the most powerful and emotional, so perhaps this month is the ideal momentum to let another side of you shine through and get your creative side show. Lastly, the Worm Moon will bring in some inner peace, so why not try out meditating?
November 22nd – December 21st
There’s no denying it – Mercury going retrograde is going to hit you, dear Sag! But don’t fret yet – the new moon is here to bring you some balance and bunker while you face a potentially difficult situation. Adventure is in your nature, so you’re probably thinking about where to head to next, but we suggest staying put for the next few weeks and try finding adventure without hopping on a plane. The Worm Moon will raise some strong opinions and it’s no secret you can get carried away, so watch out!
December 22nd – January 19th
You’re an introvert who likes action – but speaking up about your feelings and thoughts isn’t your strong suit. It seems though that you’ll find yourself at a crossroads this month so work on expressing your wants and needs, the time to speak up will be when Mercury goes direct on the 28th. Unlike for your pals, the Worm Moon will make you debate about your future and career – are you happy with where you’re at? Do your due diligence and change if needed!
January 20th – February 18th
Money and health are on your mind this month, dear Aquarius. You’ll find yourself being busy thinking about when to ask your boss for a promotion or whether you should look elsewhere. Looking to decompress? Seems like the Worm Moon will make that difficult as it’ll get your emotions up and cranky is never a good look. Book yourself a mini vacation or introduce a new healthy habit to your routine, we promise it’s worth it. And about those finance, hold off your trip until Mercury is out of retrograde!
