Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Curiosity and restlessness are kicked up by this super intelligent Aquarius Full Moon in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Learning.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The second Aquarius Full Moon this year will continue to shed light on important personal and professional relationships.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Adapting to different systems and methods is the challenge of this Aquarius Full Moon in your 6th House of Service. This could trigger a conflict on the job, but it is meant to shake up your daily routine and encourage you to experiment with new ways to work.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Romance, play and creativity get another boost with this second consecutive Aquarius Full Moon in your 5th House of Self-Expression.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You can find the emotional distance to see past issues in a different light with this liberating Aquarius Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots.

The power to heal old wounds and create a better future is yours when you stop looking backward and live more fully and freely in the present.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your brain is fired up with brilliant concepts as this intellectual Aquarius Full Moon lights up your 3rd House of Information.

Communicating comes more easily, as well, when you're less attached to proving a point and more interested in having an open exchange with others.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
The best ways to increase your self-worth involve a bit of experimenting now. That's because this innovative Aquarius New Moon lands in your 2nd House of Resources.

Income can grow when you're mentally stimulated by the work that you do.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
The Aquarius Full Moon lands in your 1st House of Personality and Appearance, where it stimulates you to alter you look or your attitude.

This lunation also kicks up your freedom needs, making you less accommodating to the wishes of controlling partners.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
This inventive Aquarius Full Moon occurs in your 12th House of Spirituality and Escapism. If you don't feel very connected to the world around you, this could intensify those emotions.

Letting go of unessential obligations is a great way to give yourself the space you need.
