Your least favorite expression ever might be "the devil is in the details"—after all, your "blue sky thinking" sign is more about the big picture than the small print. But you'll come in for a landing on Wednesday, April 26 when the year's only Taurus new moon powers up your sixth house of systemization. Even expansive Archers occasionally need to touch down and organize their desktops. And this new moon brings a wonderful opportunity to wipe the slate clean. But don't panic: This doesn't have to happen by midnight tonight! You've actually got six months to get the job done—but the "job" actually entails a lot more. Here's your chance to streamline how you operate at home and at work. Decluttering is a great place to start—after all, you can't really be sure what you're dealing with if you can't find the bottom of the pile. Make that a priority this week, and then tackle all the outstanding bills/emails/invites/laundry that you keep kicking down the road. In grounded Taurus, this full moon will deliver a blast of motivation to take care of business. The sixth house also rules work and service, and you could get wind of an exciting job offer or take on new responsibilities, which will be equal parts thrilling and overwhelming. Have patience, Sag: This cycle lasts up to six months. Aim to have everything solidly in place by the corresponding Taurus full moon on November 4. During this half-year cycle, you'll have a cosmic tail wind to get back in shape—or take your health and fitness to the next level. But that won't happen if you're sitting around watching Netflix (or your home screen). As the sporty sign of the zodiac, it's in your DNA to be active. So lace up those cross-trainers, unroll the Manduka mat, dust off your juicer and call forth your inner drill sergeant. Remember, though: This isn't a 24-hour call to action. The way to make lasting change is slowly and steadily. Find routines you love and can integrate into your lifestyle. Set some realistic goals, avoiding any workout or diet that smells like a sure-to-fizzle fad. After all, a lifetime of wellness is a marathon, not a sprint.
Just plan to trade your Nike Airs for a pair of dancing shoes on Friday, when seductive Venus whirls into Aries and your passionate fifth house for the next six weeks. Let's just say you're likely to find other ways of raising your heart rate and working up a sweat than an hour of spin class. This is the love planet's second trip to this zone in 2017. The first was from February 3 to April 2, and it included a mojo-dulling retrograde that began March 4. But this cameo appearance is sure to go more favorably. From now until June 6, your animal magnetism will be off the charts—but use those superpowers mindfully, please. It'll be easy to reel people in, but like with fishing, only keep what you plan to consume. (More would be wasteful—or an ego trip. Share, Archer!) You may struggle with this, since the fifth house also rules drama. Try as you might to keep things chill, they could get out of hand fast. If you're in a LTR, be kind to your mate. It's easy to take them for granted or lash out when you're frustrated, but catch yourself before you go off. A good fight can clear the air—and let's hear it for makeup sex—but you don't want to risk deeply hurting their feelings.
