Any type of eclipse follows a burst of energy into the cosmic universe. This is a time for a change and also a time for your mind to release what might be buried in your subconscious being.

With a Leo moon, and later in the week, a Virgo one, there's a lot of thinking for all to hone in. Both signs are logical and pragmatic and tend to place their emotions into obedience when it defies logic.

There are times when Leos and Virgos come across as cold and perhaps a bit calculated, but the truth is they are big believers in common sense and often try to live by it.

But why not add to the cosmic energy equation? Mercury is now in full retrograde, so there's reason to tap into that common sense and prevention mode.

How does this affect your weekly horoscope and your zodiac sign? Here is what the universe has in store for you, set to the tune of a theme song.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Mantra: Fresh starts. 

Aries, your week comes with a new beginning. You may feel as though you aren't able to make choices you want (or need) to make for yourself, but there will be a natural flow of things that set your worries to rest. 

By midweek, you may be too busy to reflect on what's happening around you, but expect an awakening by Wednesday. Thursday will be a time to celebrate some sweet victory, but you should know, there will still be too much happening to settle in for a rest. 

Towards the end of the week, your patience and efforts will be rewarded. Have fun!

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Mantra: Trust yourself.

Taurus, your week starts with an opportunity that really catches your attention. Not only will you think it's a good thing to try, but you will want to do it with passion. Your dreams will be more vibrant early this week, and a part of you more attentive than usual.

By midweek, a setback in trust takes place, and you're likely to not be too grace-filled or forgiving (perhaps with good cause). Let go of what you can't control, and trust yourself. 

End of the week, although there may be changes in love and how things look in your relationships, the changes are needed for you to experience at this time.

Gemini, your week opens up with a clarity in perception and when your instinctive side kicks in, things are set for a mighty start. You may notice areas where you feel constricted and how this has affected your sense of self-worth, especially how you think others view you.

By midweek, your self-trust grows stronger, and although you might not find a way to start the new beginning you seek, the intentions are set for future change.

By the end of the week, you may find yourself a needing some down time to refuel your intuition for your next steps.

End of the week, you may catch up with an old friend or mentor that helps you vent your frustrations. This is a nurturing time that helps you to clarify your thoughts.

By midweek, you may notice a change in focus and what attracts your interest. This will be as a result of the events early in the week.

By midweek, you will find yourself in a new position of power and authority over your own life and matters that seemed unclear will have more form. Expect to feel a sense of balance and clarity at this time. 

End of the week, although you aren't necessarily grateful about how things turned out, you will appreciate the strength that you gained in this process.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Mantra: Let go of negative thoughts.

By midweek, you may need to express compassion towards someone who has been hurt and you're the one they confide in. Your expressions may feel foreign to you but there's a reason why you're that friend in that time of need.

End of the week, your intuition is challenged. Perhaps you question yourself or a situation and wonder whether or not you're right or wrong for feeling the way you do. There's an open door for a new beginning once you finalize your thoughts.
