What do you need to feel safe; to feel good about yourself; to feel free? Your evolution requires real emotional honesty in answering these questions.

Plug in to the life-giving force of our star, now directly focused upon you, to recharge your batteries. This is your time to take stock of what you want, what you need and what you truly value.

Graduating to a higher grade of mastery always follows a test of some kind. This week may present such an opportunity. Trust in yourself and in your goal: what your endgame means to you and why you’re fighting for it. Recognize the difference between self-importance and self-acceptance.

If you’re wishing to make a fresh start on any facet of your life, a New Moon in your sign is always useful in some way to that end; though this particular conjunction may be significantly more so. The act of making a beginning, and of getting yourself out of any situation where you feel stuck, will require you to take the initiative.
