There’s big system update vibes this week as a new moon coincides with the new month. With eclipse season done (from 30 May AEST and GMT) and Mercury retrograde wrapping up (from 3 June AEST and GMT), we can breathe a collective sigh of relief.

But finding your groove won’t happen right away. Like emerging into daylight after being in a (slightly weird) club all night, it may take time for your eyes to adjust. And with Mercury slowing down and squaring Saturn, there’s no need – or point – in trying to rush. Give yourself time to find your way, and stay curious as to what comes up rather than trying to race ahead.

A new development – or roadblock – will make, or could make the decision for you. Try not to fret, everything will unfold in its own time and making sense of it all will become easier as month wears on.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

The big Aries energy continues this week (thanks Jupiter and Mars!) meaning you’ll want to charge ahead at record speed. But despite your best efforts, progress will be super slow, especially when it comes to anything financial. Bulldozing forward will get you nowhere, so save your energy and capitalise on the sudden power surge with some extra HIIT sessions.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

Now Venus (your ruling planet) has sailed into your home sign, there’s never been a better time to treat yourself. Recalibrate with a spa day, a hotel stay or a just-because dinner at your favourite restaurant. No sign has earned a break quite so much as you. A little luxury will do wonders to take your mind off the madness that was May.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

No other sign gets quite the magical nudge to blow away the cobwebs as you this week. A new moon (30 May) beckons you to set some fresh goals and generally, take things a little less seriously. Then on Friday, Mercury retrograde ends on a cliffhanger, with a new development revealing limitations to your previous plans. Trust that the roadblocks are a sign your strategy needs more work.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

If seas have felt a little choppy the past few weeks – especially around your social life, rest assured there’s sunshine in sight. But first, be prepared to stand your ground, particularly on Friday. Remember, you owe no one an explanation. Saying “no” isn’t always easy, but it is a complete answer.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Patience is a virtue you’ll require by the bucketload this week, as decision-making stalls and progress grinds to a glacial pace – especially at work. Try as you might, pushing harder won’t make things move any faster. Save your breath, and focus on making fun plans with friends.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

This week’s new moon (30 May AEST and GMT) is the perfect moment to set new career goals. Jupiter and Mars are on hand to help you ask, “Why shouldn’t it be me?” so don’t hold back! And with your ruling planet (Mercury) grinding to a halt on Friday, taking time out to ponder is the perfect way to capitalise on the otherwise slow-moving energy.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

Yearning for an island getaway? The new moon (30 May AEST and GMT) is a cosmic invitation to start working on some big travel goals. Let yourself dream big, but resist the temptation to book tickets. This is a great week for staying open and flexible rather than locking in anything concrete.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISNIG

A light bulb moment may land this week, driving you to go full steam ahead with a new plan. But making headway will be tricky as things move about 1000 times slower than you’d like. Distract yourself with lofty new moon plans (30 May AEST and GMT) especially involving property and investing.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Whether you’re coupled up or single, this week take time to reflect on how you can make romance more fun. If your love life needs a refresh, harness the sexy, fiery energy charging up your chart to turn over a new leaf. The new moon (30 May AEST and GMT) is a cracker for wiping the slate clean in your relationship or dating game plan.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

If the past month has left you feeling a tad disoriented, this week’s Gemini new moon (30 May AEST and GMT) is an excellent window to get organised. Take a minute to reflect on how your calendar could benefit from a little more flexibility and brainstorm ways to test a new approach. Being a little less rigid could be the answer to your scheduling issues.

AQUARIUS RISING

Eclipse season may be done and dusted (as of 30 May AEST and GMT), but there’s still one last piece of the puzzle set to drop before the week is out. Stay tuned for new information – and possibly a dead end – but don’t make any sudden decisions. This is a week to wait and see, rather than trying to finalise plans.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

A new moon (30 May AEST and GMT) plants the seed for something exciting and fresh to take shape. Whether you’re thinking about a new neighbourhood or dreaming of moving in with someone, there’s fresh start energy on tap. Adding to the goodness, there’s a wave of financial flow thrown in to help get your dream off the ground.
