Full moon in Aries is a celebration of that big, bold inner strength within us. This is the time when our pride and confidence soar like nothing can stop us from doing what we feel right.
 
Do you have the time to do your essay from start to finish in two hours? Probably not, but you’re going to be confident enough thinking you can do it. You’ll also be pumped up to start new projects without thinking carefully. Signing up for boxing class, writing a book, learning new foreign language; everything will seem a lot more possible for you.
 
For activists, the conjunction aspect with Uranus (retrograde) will help boost your rebellious streak. If you’d like to rebel against the government or any conservative entity, this is the perfect time to plan your movement.
 
You can also use this opportunity to speak your new ideas out loud. But be careful not to be too bold because your friends and partners may not be so appreciative. Due to the moon and Uranus in Aries which are in opposition aspect with Mercury and Sun in Libra, you may come across as either aggressive or irrational.
 
You’ll be fixated with the idea of going to Turkey to ride the hot air balloon when you have no savings in the bank. Do you blame people for giving you the side-eye? In the end, it’s up to you to approach your ideas, but my suggestion:  let’s try to keep things balanced.
 


It’s nice to have that childlike excitement in your head, but it’s also important to know whether it’s feasible. Ask yourself these questions: Do I have the resources for this? Do I have the time to do it? Does it interfere with my work/study? Will my loved ones support my new idea?
 
On this week of full moon in Aries, new activities and projects may seem more appealing to you than your usual routine. If that’s your call, go ahead and do it! However, don’t let it distract you from work/study, friends, or family. Try not to waste more time on things that will not benefit you in the future as well. It’s great to keep an open mind of new things to start, but try to ponder and plan it before you jump ahead.

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Five of Disks - Worry
 
With good fortune coming ahead, so does the responsibility that follows. Are you up for a challenge, Libra? Because the card tells me that deep down you think you’re not good enough for this. Oh shut up, isn’t this what you’ve been waiting for? Find a time on your schedule to plan things ahead. Which direction do you want to go in 2017? Start your journey with a simple bullet journal, find a time to learn the new skills that are necessary to build your career, and ignore those people who make you feel inadequate. Having a bigger fish to fry should only mean that you’re prepared to “upgrade” yourself. Most importantly, don’t sweat the small details. Just focus on your new main goal and enjoy the ride.
 
You should listen to:
Starboy - The Weeknd
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
The Aeon
 
You’ve been out of touch with yourself lately, Scorpio, because you’ve been spending more time worrying about work/love/family. If you can spend enough energy for them, why don’t you spend more time pampering yourself? Keep your stress level low, find some time to finish reading your favorite book, and promise yourself to have at least seven hours sleep every day.
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Seven of Wands - Valour
 
For single Sagittarius out there, finding love in an unlikely place sounds like one of your super powers! Interesting new love opportunity is coming your way through unexpected event/place and it’s your chance to make it happen. This new lover will connect with you through transcendental midnight conversations as you Netflix and chill. God speed!
 
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Art
 
When your abundance is hurting you, maybe it’s time to cut some slack off. This week’s lesson is a balance between your ambition and your ability to fulfil your own expectation. A great opportunity will be nothing but a burden if you constantly have to push 110 percent. Give yourself enough time to rest before you end up crashing at a critical time.
 
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
The Empress
 
After being swamped with work and study, all you need is a day or two to rest your mind. The card tells me how you’ve been out of touch with your feelings because your career forced you to put it aside. Spend some relaxing time in nature, arrange a spa day, and rekindle with your old friends. For once, dance when no one is looking and be yourself in the presence of familiar faces.
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Six of Swords - Science
 
Too much expectation, but too little patience, will only upset you, Pisces. Not everyone understands you, because not everyone can read your mind. Remember, they didn't come from the same cookie mold as you. So if something bothers you, be honest and tell them what’s up. Don’t leave them wondering because you’ll be disappointed if they can’t figure you out.
 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
The Sun
 
Feeling more inspired to do something different with your life? Do it. Are you craving for a drastic makeover? By all means, do it! This week is also a great week to start making new plans ahead. My suggestion, don’t rush. Think long term. How will this affect your life in 1-2 years? It’s great to have such radiant optimism, but don’t let this excitement be your downfall, Aries.
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Queen of Cups
 
Not all hope is lost, Taurus! Use your intuition wisely to figure out the next step. It may seem like there’s no way out now, but this is all just a mind trick. If you haven’t gotten the right job, meeting the right person, or just feeling generally unsatisfied with your life, start by listing your wishes to get into the “zone” and let your intuition does its magic.
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Prince of Cups
 
It may be hard to trust someone who disappoints you over and over again, but if you really have to be in a cordial professional relationship with them, then there’s nothing much you can do. Swallow the bitter pill and do the best job in being courteous. You don’t have to be friends with them, just try to get along well and not destroy each other during lunchtime.
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
The Chariot
 
What’s done is done, there’s no point crying over spilled milk. The more you look to the past, the more you feel unhappy in the present. Take it as a lesson instead by cherishing your loved ones before they’re gone. Once you look forward to the future, the Universe will present you with more interesting people to mingle with. Chin up and get excited, Cancer! :)
 
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
The Hanged Man
 
Taking chances at work or play will never be the same with the presence of the new people around you. These people tend to strive on the safe side, but being safe does not satisfy you much. I’ll say, do what your heart feels right. If you have to do it alone, do it anyway. But make sure your new acquaintances know what and why you are doing it.
 
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Princess of Cups
 
If something made you unhappy, the first step to changing it is by being honest with yourself. We like to be kept in a bubble filled with happiness, albeit fake, and we would take risk to stay in it forever. However, the bubble isn’t real, and neither does the happiness that it brings. So give yourself a good cry. Release it as much as you can. Okay, feel better now? :)
