Just when we were ready to resolve ourselves to an uncertain summer, the CDC’s announcement that fully vaccinated folks can look forward to a maskless future seems to have been ushered in by the planets themselves.
The Sun has entered Gemini, jazzing up our social lives and intellectual pursuits. Meanwhile, Jupiter has dipped into the magical waters of Pisces — a sign it traditionally rules — to bring inspiration and luck. For a double dose of dreamy optimism, a full Moon will be eclipsed in Sagittarius on Wednesday — get ready to throw out everything you know about where you’re going. Saturn retrograde in Aquarius is also asking us to reevaluate boundaries and question the rules we’re pressured to live by.
Eclipses invoke big changes. Letting yourself get lost in the adventure is the best way to get lucky. (And do it fast, because next week, Mercury goes retrograde, too, and who knows what can go wrong! Or maybe right….)
Your horoscopes this week reflect the effects of this lunar eclipse on your sign. Read your Sun sign for the “big picture” and your rising sign for “where the work is.”
