Who can you count on when the going gets rough–or when you want to celebrate? Tuesday’s new moon shines its spotlight on the company you keep. Over the next six months you could meet an assortment of fresh new faces that can add so much to your life.
This doesn’t only apply to making friends but being part of volunteer organizations, industry think tanks, the PTO, a softball team or a bereavement group. When people congregate for a common cause (even if that just means putting on a rager of a party) it’s part of the eleventh house, which is where this lunation occurs.
Serious Saturn is in a terrific angle, indicating that the ties you create today could last for decades. Abundant Jupiter is also in a happy mood, bringing in folks with new viewpoints to jazz up your life. You could meet people from other countries, ethnic groups, religions or philosophies.
And Mars in your sign will push you out the door so that you can meet these folks, not to mention spending quality time with your existing friends.
Just be leery of mixing finances with friendship, a possibility on Wednesday. Don’t lend money to a pal and resist the urge to donate heavily to a what appears to be a good cause. Tis the season for giving, of course, but make sure before you do that you know the full story behind the request. Likewise, if you’re involved in a group venture that requires a big outlay of cash–your girlfriend’s bachelorette party in Vegas, for example–think twice before you whip out the old credit card. There’s nothing wrong with saying that you need time to think about it, or deciding to stay home instead.
But travel is on the menu for you, especially on Thursday with a juicy Mars-Jupiter trine. It’s a great day to not only plan a vacation but to expand your horizons in other ways, such as going back to school or writing a book. If you have been considering a career in journalism, medicine, law, government affairs or publishing this is a super helpful aspect.
Keep your plans on the QT as Mercury enters your house of confidentiality the next day. You’ll have the opportunity to go public as you get closer to your birthday.
The weekend rocks for hanging out with friends and meeting new faces (some of which may be sexy and single, BTW). Put yourself out there as the cosmos indicates that long term associations could arise from current meetings!
