Get ready for an astro-fabulous 2014! This year starts off with a bang with a new moon in industrious and hard working Capricorn. Goats are known for being extremely career driven and status seeking so if you’re looking for a change in the work place or thinking of starting a new business, now is a great time to start manifesting and putting those goals into action. If you’re like most people, it’s easy to start the year off pushing full steam ahead and then slowly but surely you start to fall back into a routine of putting your dreams on the back burner. A good way to stay motivated is to look to the new moon(s) of each month as a “mini” new-year. Breaking your goals down by month or even weeks makes them easier to manage. So here’s to a glorious and prosperous 2014!
CAPRICORN – THE GOAT
December 22nd – January 19th
Happy Birthday Capricorn! With the sun in your sign this month, you are in your element and ready to make things happen. The new moon on New Years Day is the perfect day for you to set intentions for what you want to happen this year. On January 11th communication planet, Mercury moves into your 2nd house of finances. If you’ve been thinking about making more money lately (something Capricorns always seem to do) now is a good time to speak up to your supervisor, clients, or even banks and credit card companies. Ask for an increase in salary/pay or for a loan. The full moon in your opposite sign Cancer on the 15th could bring a new potential mate into your life or you may consider getting more serious with someone you’ve been casually dating. When love planet Venus turns direct in your sign on the 31rst, you’ll have more clarity on how to move forward in the love department.
AQUARIUS – THE WATER BEARER
January 20th – February 18th
You will be playing co-star to Capricorn in the movie called “Astrological Transits” part of this month, Aquarius but come mid month when planets start moving into your sign, all eyes will be on you! The new moon on January 1st in your 12th house of unconscious may have you feeling more spiritual than usual. You are known for being a humanitarian and you may have worldwide change on your list of goals for 2014. Nothing wrong with that as Aquarian Oprah has succeeded at this. On January 11th, communication planet Mercury moves into your sign making you more outspoken than usual. If you have an initiative or charity that is close to your heart, use your voice to make a difference. Air signs are usually great communicators but this month you will have the gift of gab. The full moon in Cancer in your 6th house of work and service indicates the culmination or completion of a project. What have you been working on for the past 6th months? You may finally see the fruits of your labor.
PISCES – THE FISH
February 19th – March 20th
Time to get swimming, fishes! The new moon in your 11th house of groups, friends and associations may have you wanting to join a social club or organization. Capricorn is trine your sign, which in laymen’s term means it’s energy is compatible with yours, Pisces. This is a great time to make new friends and network as the goat is all about social climbing. On the 15th there is a full moon in your sister sign, Cancer. This full moon will be in your 5th house of love, creativity and children. Some Pisceans may get pregnant, begin or end a relationship or finish a creative project. Whatever it is, by the end of the month when Venus goes direct in your 11th house of friends, you’ll be ready to share your love with anyone willing to receive.
ARIES – THE RAM
March 21st-April 19th
This month is all about your career, Aries. With the sun, new moon and communication planet Mercury in Capricorn in your 10th house, this is a great time to either start a new job or you may be rewarded with a promotion. January 1st and two weeks after is a great time to goal set for what you want to achieve career wise over the next year. When Venus goes direct on January 31st, it would be a good time to do a professional look makeover just in case you do start a new gig. In the second half of the month, you’ll want some relief from all the work focus and it will be a good time to catch up with old friends.
TAURUS – THE BULL
April 20th- May 20th
Now that the holiday season is over, it’s a great time to start thinking about planning a vacation, Taurus. You have been running on autopilot all year long and it’s now time to put the focus back on yourself. With the Sun, Mercury and Venus in your 9th house of travel and education, you may get the itch to travel abroad. London or Paris? How about both! The full moon in Cancer on January 15th may have you giving an important presentation or speech. No need to worry, you will do great as it is in your 3rd house of communication. In the second half of the month when planets start to shift into Aquarius, your career will be the major focus in your life. This will be a great time to interview for a new job or get some new clients.
GEMINI – THE TWINS
May 21st – June 20th
It’s time to evaluate what is working and not working in your life this month, Gemini. The new moon in Capricorn in your 8th house of rebirth, secrecy and shared resources triggers the start of transformation in your life. In Chinese Astrology, we are wrapping up the year of the snake. Its time for you to shed “dead skin” Gemini so you can bring more good and positivity into your life. The full moon in Cancer on January 15th may finally bring you money you have been waiting for. Towards the end of the month you may be considering going back to school or taking up a class that could improve your overall position in life. This would be a great idea as it’s in alignment with the theme of transformation for you this month.
CANCER – THE CRAB
June 21st – July 22nd
Love is in the air for you this month, Cancer. With several planets in your 7th house in Capricorn, your opposite sign, there is supportive energy for you to start a new relationship, get engaged, married or bring romance back to your current relationship. For you Crabs who are going through trials and tribulations you’re your current partner, it may be time for you to let go. Don’t hold onto a relationship out of fear that you won’t find someone better. It’s the fear itself that is keeping you from finding a partner better suited for you. For you Cancers that may have gotten engaged or married this holiday season, by the end of the month the focus will be on merging resources with your partner – this goes for business partners as well. If you are opening a shared bank account with someone or making a huge purchase together, try to do so after Venus goes direct on January 31st.
LEO – THE LION
July 23rd – August 22nd
Time to buckle down and get in shape, fearless Lion. The holidays have probably gotten the best of you and with several planets in your 6th house of health, you’re ready to shed those extra pounds. Just make sure to stay healthy, Leo. Extreme diets and gimmicks never work. Instead focus on an entire lifestyle change and you’ll see the best results. The full moon in Cancer on January 15th may have you reevaluating everything in your life from friends, possessions and emotional baggage. Let it go, Leo. You’ve never been known to have low self-esteem but you may be feeling down and being too hard on yourself right now. At the end of the month, you’ll be in the mood to be around those closest to you whether it’s a romantic partner or best friend. Just make sure not to dump your problems on them. You have to be strong enough to walk on your own two feet.
VIRGO – THE VIRGIN
August 23rd-September 22nd
This is a creative time for you, Virgo. You have the power to create anything you put your mind to whether it be a new business, art piece or baby. The new moon on January 1st triggers the your creative genius. Virgos are not necessarily known for their artistry like other signs like Libra or Pisces, but with your attention to detail and tenacity, you have the ability to be a great creator. You just have to believe in yourself and not worry about what others think of you. Towards the end of the month, when the sun moves into Aquarius, you’ll be back to your usual Virgo antics of organizing, budgeting and cleaning. But for now, learn to let your creative juices flow.
LIBRA – THE SCALES
September 23rd – October 22nd
This month your focus is on family and home, Libra. The new moon on January 1st in your 4th house could have you considering a move or remodeling project. If you’re considering a major overhaul to your current residence, I would advise you wait until after your sign ruler, Venus goes direct on January 31st. Venus rules beauty and it’s best to make sure she is working in your favor when taking on such a huge job. On January 11th communication planet Mercury moves into your sister sign Aquarius in your 5th house of love and romance. If you’ve been feeling neglected by your partner or have wanted to tell a crush how you really feel, now is a good time to speak up. The full moon on January 15th in your 10th house could bring a work project to an end. It should be a good ending and from it you may be able to pick up some additional projects.
SCORPIO – THE SCORPION
October 23rd – November 21st
Your communication skills are through the roof this month, Scorpio. You’re a natural born leader and with the Sun, new moon, Mercury and Venus all in industrious Capricorn at the beginning this this month, you can use your verbal skills to get what you want. A raise? A promotion? Time to speak up as the universe is working for you. On January 15th the full moon in your sister sign Cancer may have you leaving for a short work related trip. At the end of the month your focus will be on home and getting your ducks in a row. You may have neglected important personal matters during the holidays and now is the time to get back on track.
SAGITTARIUS – THE ARCHER
November 22nd – December 21st
Biggie and Diddy said “More Money, More Problems” but not for you Sag. This month, you have a good chance of receiving an increase in income with several planets in Capricorn in your 2nd house of finances. Just make sure to budget as you Archers can have the tendency to overindulge. The full moon in Cancer in your 8th house of shared resources on January 15th also indicates a possible boost in finances through your significant other or business partner. At the end of the month you may have to use your Sagittarius wit to negotiate a deal. Use your powers of persuasion but be honest. You’ll reach an agreement that will be beneficial for all parties involved.

My monthly horoscopes are written for Sun Signs but if you know your rising sign, (which is based on the time you were born) you should read for that sign as well. In most cases it is more accurate because the horoscope is written with the planets moving through your natal chart.
