If it's your birthday

The New Moon in your birthday chart is very good news. It suggests you have the potential to make lots of important changes in your life in the coming year. Financially, your biggest enemy is fear so mind out for that. Long term planning, talking to experts and devising strategies will boost your bank account far more than worry will.

This is a big week for you if you want to make them most of the celestial energies. For one thing, there is a New Moon in your sign so you need to make a wish (or ten) on Saturday. Moreover, you have the planet of drive and determination, Mars, moving into your sign for the first time in two years. Make a wish to handle this energy really well and also for clarity about your goals – Mars will help you achieve them.

If you want the coming few weeks to be easy rather than taxing here is a tip; take up some kind of spiritual sport. For example, do regular yoga or try some tai chi. Another activity which could work is something I rediscovered recently – kundalini shaking. It's very intense! Personally I love this video of it moonmessages.com/shaking If you don't do something, you could find a lot of fears fizzing up now. You need to do something active to process them.

You have been learning important lessons about how far you can push people. You have had a lot of people making a lot of demands on you in the past few months. It's only natural that sometimes you will spit the proverbial dummy. However there is only so far you can go before you start to damage your important relationships, so think about that, as angry Mars moves into your Friends Zone. It's good to be assertive but don't go OTT. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

LIBRA

Tell your partner or ex to watch out! The planet that likes to argue, Mars, is moving into your 7th House of Relationships for the first time in two years. In other words, even though you're a charming Libran who really wants harmony, you're going to be more fired up in all your relationships, including work ones. Do be bold and let people know what you want. Stand up for yourself more. Address touchy issues. But don't become aggressive. Doesn’t become you!

SCORPIO

Life at home and/or with family can start to improve now. If that doesn't seem to be happening by itself, then you need to tap into the power of the New Moon in your Home and Family Zone. What do you want in this part of your life? Visualising them, feeling the feeling of them coming true, will really help. Believe it and achieve it. This applies whether you want to move house or heal a rift with a family member, for example. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

SAGITTARIUS

Having Saturn in your sign can take a real toll on you mentally. You've been dealing with Saturn for a while, as you might know. He's very tedious and can make life feel a drag. But this week, there is a blessing coming your way, if you choose to accept it. It's the New Moon in your Mind Zone. Ask yourself if you have got into the bad habit of thinking negatively. It's possible, with Saturn on your case. Shake that habit. There will be another New Moon very soon – click here to download your free New Moon Wishing Guide.

CAPRICORN

If life at home or a situation with a family member isn't panning out as you'd hoped, this is the week to take action. You have a few weeks coming when you have extra energy to deal with any domestic or family issues which are not working. If a lack of self-belief has been hampering you at all, in this or any other part of your of your life, this is the week to ask people "what's so great about me?"
