An adventurous full moon in optimistic Sagittarius on the 31st energizes travel, education, spirituality and thoughts about long-term aspirations. The sun opposing Jupiter on the 5th intensifies the need for freedom and trekking into unexplored territories. Romantic Venus transiting through Leo June 5-July 13 intensifies passion, generosity and drama in relationships. Actually, a line-up of fire signs-Venus and Saturn in Leo, Mars in Aries and Jupiter and Pluto in Sagittarius-inspires enthusiasm, creativity, spirituality and just plain fun. Adding to this freewheeling mix is the rebellious Uranus-Sun clash on the 9th, which heightens the need for self-expression. But watch out for communication and paperwork snafus when Mercury turns retrograde from June 15-July 8.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.

Your leadership abilities are heightened now, so it’s time to expand your personal and professional horizons. Romance is especially delightful after the 5th. And the full moon boosts your quest for adventure.

Entertaining at home and remodeling projects are emphasized after the 5th. The full moon energizes financial activities, but transactions made during the 5th-9th may stand on shaky ground.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Relationship activities are energized, especially during the full moon. But a bout of rebelliousness around the 9th may unhinge your sweetie. Fortunately, heartfelt expressions of love come easily to you after the 5th.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The full moon energizes your earning power, but you’ll need to navigate carefully through twists in the financial road from the 5th-9th. And networking to advance your career is especially effective after the 5th.

Your spiritual side and intuition are energized by the full moon, which also encourages you to heal emotional issues from the past. As for romance, intimate trysts are especially delightful after the 5th.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relationship rendezvous intensify after the 5th. And the full moon energizes activities with friends and heightens your altruistic side; contributing to a humanitarian project is especially fulfilling now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Like your Virgo counterpart, career, family and your partner vie for your attention, especially during the full moon, making it difficult to stay focused on what you need to do. Take some alone time to get centered.
