Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This Full Moon lands in your 7th House of Partners, putting relationships in the spotlight. Yes, you may be expected to make compromises to satisfy someone, but don't give up so much now that you will resent it later because this event is a Lunar Eclipse that's more about letting go than holding on. In fact, the point is to engage in as honest and open a dialogue as possible. Just speak calmly and remain true to yourself instead of arguing or hiding your true feelings.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Changes could be coming to your workplace and your daily routines. This purifying Libra Full Moon eclipse lands in your 6th House of Employment and Habits, which could trigger an awakening, a crisis or both about your job or physical well-being. Being more accommodating in professional relationships works best with an open mind and improving your diet and exercise practices should be done with moderation.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Romance and creativity are dramatized with this lovely Libra Full Moon in your 5th House of Self-Expression. But it's a Lunar Eclipse that can make you extra sensitive about the impression you make on others. The great gift of this lunation is having a more open mind. Clearer communication allows you to show your feelings and talents more gracefully, but fresh perspectives and brilliant ideas need to be shared diplomatically to avoid shocking others.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Finding peace on the home front and within yourself are the potential rewards of this accommodating Libra Full Moon in your 4th House of Family. However, it's also a Lunar Eclipse that may require you to let go of unresolvable domestic issues. Facing your own internal contradictions is a price to pay, but the reward is a greater understanding of yourself and a more enriching environment for professional growth.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Conflicts may flare up with this Full Moon in your 3rd House of Communication. Yet this lunation, an eclipse in objective Libra, provides clear thinking and greater objectivity that will open your mind. Learning how to disagree in an agreeable manner can heal current relationships and make it easier to connect with and be understood by new people. Listening, as is often the case, is a key to tapping into these rewards.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
This Libra Full Moon eclipse in your 2nd House of Assets highlights money matters, self-worth issues and resources. You might be reacting to financial pressures or competition from an aggressive individual. The good news is you don't have to dominate to win; all you need is to earn equal treatment. Slow down to think more strategically to avoid saying the first thing that comes to your mind, which could aggravate others.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
This Full Moon in your sign is a Lunar Eclipse that can change the shape of your relationships. A fresh take on partnerships may come as a surprise, but it's better to see the bigger picture than to stumble in the dark. A change of attitude, appearance and approach work well, along with a dash of imagination to make you feel more playful. Be the creator and initiator in your relationships, rather than putting others first and adjusting your needs.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Making peace by letting go of the past is an excellent way to tap into the benefits of this pacifying Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra. It lands in your 12th House of Spirituality to provide the perspective needed to let go of old resentments and put relationships back on track. Quiet time is invaluable, as it will inspire creative ideas and reveal solutions that take pressure off of your daily life. Nature should be especially helpful in this healing process.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You probably don't like to ask for the support of others, but help from friends and colleagues could do you wonders now. This normally cooperative Libra Full Moon is an eclipse that lands in your 11th House of Groups, reminding you that sharing is about receiving as well as giving. There are limits as to how far you can go on your own and some objective feedback will keep you from wasting time and provide you with some extremely useful ideas.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Professional matters may come to a head with this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 10th House of Career. Changing your usual ways leadoff leading others so that you come across as less authoritarian will result from being a better listener. Cool down competitiveness, as cooperation will get you further at this time. Reach out to allies and partners who can help you advance at work if you're feeling stifled with your current rate of progress.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
This logical Libra Full Moon in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Mind spurs travel and educational interests. Philosophical breakthroughs and new visions of your future are encouraged by this visionary transit. Yet as this is also a Lunar Eclipse, it's wise to suspend final judgments and respect opposing points of view before pushing your beliefs on others. But if you do want to be convincing, being gracious will help you make your case.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, where it can open your eyes about personal and professional relationships. Discussing your needs and getting a fresh start with others is essential in this objective and harmony-seeking sign. Romantic magic and financial windfalls don't happen on their own, and may require more thinking than blind faith now. Making necessary compromises is appropriate -- as long as you get your fair share of the pie.
