If you’ve been looking to turn over a new leaf, the skies have got your back to get the ball rolling this week. The new moon in Taurus (11 May EST, 12 May AEST) is a potent window to create lasting change. Bolstering your support crew, Mercury and Saturn are on hand (12 – 13 May EST and AEST) to help make your resolve stick. Not sure where to begin? Thinking about the kinds of relationships or everyday rituals that would help you feel more grounded, valued and secure is a great place to start.

Also this week, one of the sweetest shifts of the year: Jupiter in Pisces (13 May – 28 July EST and 14 May – 29 July AEST). Think of it as the filter on your life changing for the next 10 weeks, from a super sharp, steely, futuristic hue (Jupiter in Aquarius) to something soft, dreamy and whimsical with sparkly highlights. When the lighting is this good, you can’t help but be more open to falling in love, forgiving an old nemesis or going on adventure. Like a little intermission in the middle of the year, it’s the kind of astro weather that restores your faith in humanity and makes you think, “maybe things will work out after all”.

ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19) AND ARIES RISING

Make this week the week you set major money goals. Create a new savings plan or book an appointment to see a financial advisor. If you’re not sure where to start, talk to cash-savvy friends for recommendations, contacts and advice.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20) AND TAURUS RISING

Investing in your personal capital – whether it’s a new PT or regular visits to see your derm – is your homework this week. Resist the urge to mindlessly “add to cart” and be intentional. What’s the one thing that’s going to make you feel better about yourself long-term? Choose that thing.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20) AND GEMINI RISING

Make space to get quiet this week. The skies are primed for you to connect deeply with your intuition. If the solitude is intimidating, recruit a friend to do a meditation or journaling workshop with you. Try something to get in touch with your inner voice and let it shape your goals for the next four weeks.

CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22) AND CANCER RISING

Do your friends build you up and make you feel like a million bucks? If you’re not sure, this is the perfect week to reflect on the kind of people you want in your life. If you feel fully supported, tell your people how much you love them and so something fun, just because.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22) AND LEO RISING

With so much inspiration swirling around your career, this week it’s time to take a step back and figure out what you really want. Feeling overwhelmed? Call on your steadiest (and most honest) friends to help untangle your ideas and put your goals on paper.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22) AND VIRGO RISING

Making a commitment to learn something new (language, cooking, crafty – whatever appeals!) will scratch an itch you didn’t know you had. Make inquiries, find a class that fits with your schedule, put down the deposit and confirm your enrolment. Lock it in! You won’t regret it.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22) AND LIBRA RISING

Talking about money is never easy but this week, the time is right to raise a cash issue that’s been irking you. Whether it’s with a partner, a friend or a family member, clearing the air will make you feel a million times lighter, so take a deep breath and have that conversation.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21) AND SCORPIO RISING

Get forensic on your love life. Reflect on the past couple of weeks, and consider what it’s taught you about your needs. Set new relationship goals based on your findings. Whether it’s changing your settings on Hinge or having a serious chat with your partner, the astrology supports you asking for (and getting ) what you really want.

SAGITTARIUS  (NOVEMBER 22 – SEPTEMBER 21) AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Are you a chronic over-scheduler or a world-famous procrastinator (fun fact: Sagittarians come in both flavours!)? Give some thought to how you could work with your schedule to value your time more. Just like relationships, when you start to value your time, so will everyone else.

CAPRICORN  (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19) AND CAPRICORN RISING

You’re being served with a cosmic notice to make play a priority this week. It’s not a “should”, this week it’s a “must”, and it needs to happen on the regular. Put it in your calendar or do whatever you need to, to make space for fun, non-work related activities.

AQUARIUS  (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18) AND AQUARIUS RISING

This week your challenge is to reflect on your relationship with rest. What do you need to make rest more of a priority? Approach it like it’s a problem to solve (you’ll get better results this way). Write down ideas of how to prioritise downtime, then make a commitment to follow your own advice.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20) AND PISCES RISING

If there’s a book or a new business idea floating around, this may be the week to get serious. No need to buy the domain just yet (although 12 ­– 13 May would be great days, if you do!) but reflecting on what it might look like, and what the next steps could be, are great ways to work with this week’s energy.
