Connection and conversation are the order of the next seven days as we shimmy towards an especially dreamy new moon in Gemini. A “you-can-do-it” start to the week gets things and brings a contagious Ted Lasso-esque optimism to the mood, before slowing to a more plodding pace around Wednesday. By Friday, things could feel a little fraught, with a vibe shift evoking cold feet over a plan you’ve been working on all week. Despite the speed bump, there is potential to find a way to make that thing happen if you’re willing to use your imagination and call in a few favours.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING
If you had to pick a peak moment this week, your best days are early on when the moon gives you a little extra je ne sais quoi. Energy, confidence and an appetite for fun, both in and out of the bedroom – should make Monday and Tuesday extra spicy. Mind your step mid-week when a sudden urge to indulge in all the retail therapy could get out of hand in a heartbeat.
TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING
There’s rhythm and flow this week, with Tuesday (GMT) and Wednesday (AEST) delivering the juiciest moments for Taurean folks. Make the most of the sensual vibes and lash out on something a little bit luxurious: a Keratin treatment, massage or HydraFacial will do you nicely. Come Sunday, use the new moon to set some lofty intentions around cash and don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild. You don’t need details (yet), just a fully-formed goal.
GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING
Geminis rejoice! Mercury’s come home to your sign meaning your sharper and sparkier than you’ve been in months. Celebrate with spontaneous mischief early in the week when the sky is poised for some Very Good Times. Call on those same friends on the weekend for advice on how to move past a block emerging on Friday. Then on Sunday, your only limitation is your imagination when a new moon dares you to dream big and set some Big (capital b!) life goals.
CANCER AND CANCER RISING
There’s quite a bit of sizzle this week but as the moon loses light, you’re likely to be feeling low-key. Be strategic with your energy and plot your most extroverted plans in the front half of the week. Monday looks good for work, while Tuesday GMT (and Wednesday AEST) is a nice window for friends. Honour the planetary cycles and go to ground later in the week as you prepare to reset on Sunday’s new moon.
LEO AND LEO RISING
The glitter canon is firing your way this week as the moon gives you a cheeky nudge to get out there and get involved. After a racy start (Monday-Tuesday AEST; Monday GMT); things look especially sweet on the work front. Make the call, pitch the idea or send the job application before Wednesday GMT or before Thursday AEST. Don’t be perturbed if things look a little ick by Friday – it’s a temporary setback.
VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING
A clear head and 20/20 vision should help put a little swagger in your step this week. Flex your strategic muscles and bide your time. Just because everyone else is jumping in early in the week doesn’t mean you should too. A mentor or teacher could offer sage advice (Wednesday AEST; Tuesday GMT). Keep it in your back pocket and let it guide your Next Big Goal which is ripe for setting come Sunday’s new moon.
LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING
Brace yourself for a lighter, brighter mood electrifying your overall outlook this week. Your peak moment? It’s all about how this week starts. With a spicy turn Monday/Tuesday, there’s some serious fun to be had. Grab someone precious and make the most of the saucy vibes while the going’s good, then do your Libran best to stay out of the drama later in the week – some disputes aren’t worth getting into.
SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING
The balsamic moon is usually a time to slow down but there’s no shortage of sparks flying this week. If you’ve been trying to talk your other half (romantic or platonic) into something for a while, posing that same question to them at the right moment (specifically – Tuesday GMT; Wednesday AEST) could make all the difference. Choose your moment and you might be pleasantly surprised.
SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING
Single Sagittarians take note: don’t disregard a match with someone intriguing, possibly outside your usual wheelhouse, early in the week. With the moon activating the pleasure sector in your chart, there’s a certain snap, crackle and pop in the air. For coupled-up folks, it’s a reminder to get outside your comfort zone and do something a little bit risky. Next weekend, talk big picture goals with someone you trust to share your dreams.
CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING
How’s your catch sitch looking? The skies look mighty fine early this week to pluck up the courage to ask for help…if you need it. Whether you’ve been struggling to save a deposit, pay down a loan or want to take out a mortgage, Monday and Tuesday (AEST and GMT) are as good a time as any to ask for assistance. On Sunday’s new moon, getting clear on a legitimate wellness goal (headstand, perhaps?) could prove fruitful.
AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING
There’s light on the horizon this week as Mercury joins the Sun in the realm of your chart governing pleasure and fun. That’s a green light from upstairs to take your foot off the gas and live a little. Buy the fancy ice cream, crack a bottle of great wine and binge Platonic (if you haven’t already) with someone you consider a ride or die. Sometimes, nothing more than these simple ingredients are what is required to nail the week.
PISCES AND PISCES RISING
Where is home and what does it mean to you? A profound question without a simple answer, but one to keep in the back of your mind as the week unfolds. There’s drama and spice and possibly an urge to spend more than you should, but all of that pales in comparison to the larger question hanging over Sunday’s new moon. A setback on Friday might feel heavier than it is. Don’t let it derail your fantasies – this new moon is for dreaming big.
