It’s a full moon week and so much is happening. The sun forms a sextile with magical Neptune on the 19th enhancing our creative and romantic expression. Mars conjoins the untethered North Node of fate on the same day stirring up both desires and aggressions. Things may seem overwhelming and out of control on this day, so watch out for what feels too good to be true, as it may be an oasis of respite your brain is tricking you into seeing.

The sun enters Gemini on the 20th kicking off the season of the twins. While Taurus values consistency, Gemini values duality. This is the season of the pivot! The sun forms a harmonious trine to life-changing Pluto on the 22nd to channel the strength and willpower required to make new connections and go after goals.

The 23rd is the most exciting and auspicious day of the month. The full moon in Sagittarius lights up the night sky bringing a culmination to what’s been building—especially in regards to travel and teaching—since the new moon in Taurus on the 7th, as well as since the new moon in Sagittarius on December 12, 2023. At the same time, Venus and Jupiter meet for their once annual conjunction in the final degree of Taurus. This is an aspect of fertility, abundance and all around good feelings, especially since both planets connect with cinematic Neptune at the same time. Venus moves into Gemini later on the 23rd adding a hot dose of curiosity and intellect to both long-term romances and passing flirtations.

Venus trines Pluto on the 25th increasing passion and intensity in romantic connections and creative projects. On the same day, Jupiter enters Gemini where the planet of luck, expansion and philosophizing thrives in an open-air classroom. Jupiter remains in Gemini until June 2025, and for the next year, growth and relief will be found through prioritizing humor on the quest for knowledge. Pranks become godly under this transit. Remember: the “truth” doesn’t always have to be so serious.

TL;DR: The 23rd is a full moon and one of the best days of the year. Enjoy it, stop taking yourself so seriously!
