This week's astrological aspects bring more fireworks than the 4th of July itself! The overall message from the universe is that it's time to review and release things that are keeping us from having what we truly desire. Mars opposing Pluto shows us where we are stopping ourselves (and where we may be allowing others to hold us back). The full moon on Thursday gives us the strength to stand in our convictions and the power to speak from the heart and avoid emotional outbursts. Just remember, it’s still a full moon—it can bring on the crazy, so count to 10 before giving any ultimatums or acting too quickly.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
You’re on a mission to expand your skills and knowledge base this week, but in the process, you’ll get a view of the bigger picture in love. Things are not always so black and white. At work (and in all relationships this week), it's best to let someone at least think they are right (wink wink). You win.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Early in the week, tensions may mount with siblings and every little chore seems so gigantically bothersome. Fortunately by mid-week, those fireworks die down and all the preparation will seem worth it when you can relax with close friends and family and know there's nothing left on your to-do list.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Venus cruising into your sign mid-week gives you the opportunity to get what you want. A little Gemini charm goes a long way and you'll find that the person of your dreams has just been waiting for you to show interest. Already attached? Your significant other will see your side of things now.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Your kindness and willingness to help others is called to duty. As busy as you are, someone close comes forward with a dilemma only you can solve. Delegate a few responsibilities so you can make time for them.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Your sweetie may be a bit distracted so bear with them. You've got your own stuff to deal with—work, hobbies, and friends pull you in different directions. It's lovely to be needed by so many, but keep a good balance. The full moon in Capricorn will help you see where to let go of unnecessary distractions.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Long-range plans are now taking shape and any small effort moves things very quickly! Don't push too hard. This is also clearly a time when you see who your real friends are. But the biggest lesson of this week is to remember how strong you really are. You've got this!
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Think twice before bailing on your relationships or job. Staying still when the decision is not clear is the best course of action. The breakthrough that comes with the full moon on Thursday will give you clarity. Perseverance reaps rewards and things could turn out to be far better than you thought.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Long-held beliefs are expanded as you are exposed to many different points of view, possibly during a trip. Changing one's mind, especially for a stubborn Scorpio, can be challenging. This week, try asking, “Why not?” instead of, “Why?” and see what happens.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Income is looking up as you become more focused about work or pursuit of it. Your relationship may be in a bit of a rut though. Try something new, anything from eating at a new restaurant to shaking things up in the bedroom. Just do something you've never done before and it will change your entire perspective.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
This week brings out all your feels. Capricorns are not known for being overly emotional but you suddenly realize that the impossible is a possibility! Commitments in relationships are the theme—moving in together or engagements (or brand new relationships) are all on the table at this time.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
This is a roller coaster week for Aquarians. Not bad, just…different. It starts with you and your significant other clearing the air. Then a minor health issue gets in the way, followed by a period of creativity, and a weekend of stepping back and regrouping. The biggest lesson? Let go.
Pisces (February 18–March 20)
You have reached an important crossroad and with the full moon comes clarity. Your relationships are in need of a transformation whether it's just setting boundaries, or merging with “the one," things shift in a big way. Happiness comes from within and this week you realize how much you are capable of creating your best life.
