Make decisions that will help you reach your long-term financial goals, like chipping away at a credit card or making an investment. Mid-month, the messenger planet will move into your eighth house of death and rebirth. This house also rules your taxes, so consider this your chance to get organised for next year. And, if you’ve been meaning to clean out your closet, this is also a great period to do just that. Less is more.

May 21 to June 20

Feel that, Gem? Your ruling planet, Mercury, will go direct on December 6, clearing the minds of those around you. Neptune, your personal planet of career, ended its own retrograde late last month and now it’s creating a favourable aspect with Mars, the planet of action, from the 5th to the 7th. Neptune rules inspiration, and from this position it will spur you to make your wildest ideas a reality. You’ve had a long time to think about what you really want and now is the time to act!

Your money planet, the moon, begins a new cycle in Sagittarius on the 7th. If you already have next year’s budget on your mind, this is an excellent day to get started. Break your work into smaller tasks until the moon is full on the 22nd. By then, you’ll be ready to do some big-picture thinking and doing.

June 21 to July 22

It’s time for you to gather your inner thoughts, Cancer. On the 6th, Mercury, your personal planet of spirituality, will end his retrograde and help you expand your self-understanding. His direct motion will support you in your reflections. Did you have any eureka moments over this past retrograde? Take what you learned and turn it into an affirmation for yourself. Write it down and post it somewhere prominent in your home, so that you begin your day with clarity and gratitude.

On the 7th, a new moon in Sagittarius will inspire you to bring your ambitions to life. Write down your most cherished dreams and ask your confidants for advice on how to make them real.

The sun enters your seventh house of relationships and friendship on the 22nd.

After the 13th, Mercury will move into your fifth house of pleasure! Get ready to get your glow on — this placement is all about fun spending. You’ll be a better gift-giver than Santa. Romantically speaking, you may feel like you’re on shaky ground this month, as Uranus, your personal planet of love, has been retrograde since August. Despite this sense of uncertainty, you can still have fun with your love life this month. Besides, you’ll feel steadier when Uranus moves direct in early 2019.

The sun is in your fifth house of pleasure until the 22nd. Live it up until then! After that, your ruling planet will move into your sixth house of health and work. Combined with the energy of your career planet, Venus, this placement will have you feeling unstoppable.

August 23 to September 22

Your ruling planet, Mercury, is going direct on the 6th of the month, just int time to help you make progress in your career aspirations. Even though you’re killing it at work, don’t push yourself too hard as Uranus, your personal planet of health and work, is still retrograde. The planet of change hit its backspin last August, but it will be going direct in early 2019. Spend this month crafting your plan of attack for the new year — your financial planet, Venus, will lend a helping hand.

On the 2nd, Venus will move into Scorpio, the sign of reinvention, who also rules your third house of communication. It’s time to think carefully about how you can present yourself to the world in a way that opens you up to more opportunities. Mars, your personal planet of sexuality, will spend the entire month in your seventh house of relationships. If you’re attached, do something out of the ordinary for your partner this month — they’ll love you all the more for it. If you’re single, you may ignite a flame that turns into a roaring fire. If their energy matches yours, you could be in for a very warm winter.

September 23 to October 22

You’re always seeking balance, Libra, and you’re about to strike it in a big way. On the 2nd, your planetary ruler, Venus, will make her way into your second house of possessions and finances. Mercury, your personal planet of luck and spirituality, will end its retrograde on December 6 before joining Venus on the 13th. It’s a great time to talk about — and go after — what you want. If you don’t ask for it, how will you know if it’s possible? And you’ll be ready to put in the work for your dreams by the 22nd, when the sun moves into Capricorn. Harness the power of this hard-working sign by cutting out tasks that no longer serve you.

The moon will be fuelling your career aspirations this month especially on the 7th, when the new moon arrives in Sagittarius. Spend some time thinking about how you can focus your energies toward a specific end goal. Reflect on this until the 22nd’s full moon in Gemini. Get ready to put your ideas into action that morning, then brace yourself for some feels in the evening, when the moon moves into sensitive Cancer. Take a page out of the Crab’s book and retreat to the comfort of your home. Stay in touch with your emotions, but don’t let them control you.

Romance on your mind, Scorpio? On the 2nd, Venus, your personal planet of love, will move into your first house of self. The planet of beauty and charm will make you downright magnetic to those who might look your way. If you’re in a relationship, your partner won’t be able to take their eyes off you! Give as much attention as you get and enjoy lots of private time with your honey during this snowy month. If you’re single, expect your dating apps to light up like the night sky. Anyone who matches with you is sure to be enchanted. You’ve got the goods, Scorp — make sure they know it.

Celebrate each victory with your friends and get ready for a fabulous 2019.

December 22 to January 19

You’re always a little tougher after a Mercury retrograde, Capricorn. The planetary ruler of your health and work zones will go direct on the 6th, helping you get back to what you do best — eating problems for breakfast. Whether you’re single or attached, the new moon in Sagittarius on the 7th will put you in good spirits. The moon rules your relationships, so spend this night contemplating what you want to see for yourself when it comes to love. Let these emotions build as the moon waxes, then speak from the heart on the 22nd when the full moon is in Gemini in the morning. In the evening, stay with your emotions as the moon will scoot into Cancer.

That same day, the sun moves into your sign and your house of self. You’ll feel ready to get back to your goals and take on the world. Watch out on the 24th, when Mercury squares with Neptune. You’ll want to explain some of your dreamier ideas, but they could come out wrong. Put your thoughts to paper and bounce them off a close friend before presenting them to the group.

January 20 to February 18

Patience is paramount, Aquarius. Uranus, your ruling planet, has been retrograde since August, throwing you just a little off your game. Keep working on yourself as he makes his way back to direct motion in early 2019.

On the 2nd, Venus will enter your 10th house of career and social status. She’ll help you win trust and gain favours at work — she may even bump up your IG following. On the 7th, a new moon in Sagittarius will help you formulate a plan to improve your health and work. Let the moon’s waxing energy guide you until the morning of the 22nd, when the moon will be full in Gemini. Just after, at 11:32 a.m., it will move into Cancer, helping you process any excess energy. If work has been making you more emotional than usual, let yourself feel what you need to feel in private after hours.

The sun stays in your 11th house of friendship until the 22nd, so enjoy as many holiday get-togethers with friends as you can! After the 22nd, the sun will be in your 12th house of spirituality, urging you to gain introspection. If you’re single, your priority will be to find an intuitive connection with someone new. If you’re in a relationship, you may feel compelled to seek out shared spiritual experiences with your partner. Action planet Mars will inhabit your money house all month long, placing a strong emphasis on your earning power.

February 19 to March 20

If you’ve been experiencing some emotional roadblocks in the last three weeks, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s going to be smooth sailing from December 6 onward. That day, Mercury goes direct. Your personal planet of love, home, and family life will help you iron out any wrinkles in your relationships, romantic and familial. Mercury will spend his time in your ninth house of adventure until the 13th. After that, he’ll make his way into your 10th house of social standing and career, supporting you in your efforts to impress your manager and any other powers that be. Make the most of it by seizing every opportunity that comes your way.

On the 7th, invest in your own ideas. The new moon will arrive in Sagittarius and urge you to plant the seeds of your next big plan. Spend a little time each day pushing your project ahead (watering those seeds, so to speak) as the moon waxes to fullness in Gemini on the morning of the 22nd. Talk your heart out, but after 4:32 p.m., when the moon moves into Cancer, reflect on how the bigger picture of this idea makes you feel. Make sure that it correctly represents you before acting on anything.
