The shakeup continues with this week’s lunar eclipse – a full moon in Taurus on Tuesday. With the moon meeting the north node and Uranus, there’s big wildcard energy in the air. The desire to break free, rewrite the rule book and break down outdated structures on a micro and macro scale will be major.

This is definitely not a time to focus on manifesting or making things happen. Instead, it’s the ideal time to reflect on what has changed in your life, especially around the Taurus/Scorpio axis in your chart (see your rising sign below for clues on where to look) and give yourself a pat on the back for all the healing, releasing and evolving you’ve done the past year. You’re doing great!

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

If ever there was a week where you might accidentally max out your credit card on something ridiculously beautiful and utterly impractical this is it. With the eclipse firing up your appetite for luxury, emerging from this week without a new handbag will be a feat in itself. If you’re on a budget, give Matches a miss.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

What if the thing you thought you wanted, was actually the thing you needed to let go? A change of heart is just about the only certainty this week as the eclipse on Tuesday brings all the feels. It’s ok to want something different to what you wanted a year (or even a month) ago.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Brace yourself for a realisation that the thing you have been avoiding – maybe even fearing – could actually be the thing you crave most. There are big ‘thou doth protest too much’ feels to this eclipse, and you’re finally seeing things for how they truly are. As you head into the weekend, the aftershocks could have you feeling on edge. Keep your calendar clear and prioritise self-care.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

A revelation about – or courtesy of – a friend will mean you’re feeling very differently about things by the time the week is out. While the delivery could be a little clumsy, the intel is solid. Trust that you’re seeing things clearly, and if it all feel like a lot, take the weekend to decompress.

LEO AND LEO RISING

There’s an old adage that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome is the definition of madness. It’s a maxim worth bearing in mind as the eclipse challenges the status quo – especially at work. Uncomfortable as it may be, trying a different approach could be exactly what the situation requires.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

A shift in perspective can be a beautiful thing. Keep that sentiment close to your heart as this week’s eclipse helps you see things in a whole new light. Feeling like a rookie (particularly at times when you expect to be an old hand) is almost guaranteed. Embrace the experience with curiosity rather than criticism – especially towards yourself.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

There are surprises afoot this week, and it’s from the person – or realm of your life – least likely. With the eclipse highlighting all things cash-related, there’s a chance someone close to you could drop a bombshell. An out-of-the-blue offer or a surprise confession are all par for the course. Luckily you’ve got a legendary game face.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

There’s a moment of truth vibe this week, and it’s a bombshell maybe not even you saw coming. A realisation – especially when it comes to matters of the heart – is almost a given.  It’s a lot to process, and while it may come as a relief it could leave you feeling exhausted by the weekend. Listen to your body and if you need a break, take it.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Can you handle the truth? The tea on something secret could come from an unlikely (and maybe unlikeable source) this week. Once you’ve recovered from the shock, you’ll be glad you know. Go easy on the people around you, especially your main squeezes. They’re likely just as surprised as you are.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

Your physical challenge this week? To try to strike a balance between intensity and calm. As the truth serum is unleashed, potentially by a friend, be prepared to see a situation (or relationship) in an entirely new light. Your stores of stoicism could be tested, but thankfully no one does unruffled quite like you.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

If you really sat down and thought about it, what you thought you want vs what you actually want could be two very different things. If you haven’t been aware of this disconnect, there’ll be no avoiding it this week when the eclipse on Tuesday marks a huge shift around how you approach work/life balance.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

Striking a balance between getting comfortable and pushing yourself beyond the familiar will be a big theme this week as the eclipse highlights an unexpected internal shift. A surprise development with siblings (if you have them) or extended family could also leave you speechless. Make time later in the week to soothe your nervous system and restore your energy.
