It is Venus in Cancer’s turn to complete a T-Square with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn this week. Nerve endings are raw and feelings can be easily hurt. Between Uranus in Aries’ complete lack of sensitivity and Pluto’s need to be controlling, relationships of all types will be under the gun. Those most vulnerable with be people with personal planets and/or Ascendant from 10° to 12° in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). Cardinal signs are seldom passive when they feel attacked and will strike back.
Both Mercury and Venus in Cancer will be trine to Chiron in Pisces at this time. Monday it will Mercury and on Friday, Venus. Chiron is slowing to station retrograde on Sunday, intensifying its influence. Hopefully these two trines will sooth some of the hurt done by the T-Square.
Mars in Gemini will feel pressure from Pluto in Capricorn via an irritating inconjunct on Saturday. Squabbling with your siblings and close friends over issues like jealousy and who owes whom will not end well nor be resolved. A better option may be to step back and do our best to detach ourselves from needing our way.
This is the last full week of the Sun in airy Gemini and all you air signs better make the most of it. Once the Sun enters Cancer on the summer solstice, water will dominate the sky for some time and emotional intelligence will be needed instead of pure intellect. Right now we have a sky largely divided between air and water with token amounts of fire (Uranus) and earth (Pluto). Water + air = fog . . . not especially conducive to mental clarity. Time to start working with your intuition instead!
Getting all snarky with those closest to you won’t win you any points this week, Aries. Yes, I’m sure you feel justified because it is tough dealing with controlling bosses and all. Still, be kind to your family and avoid hurt feelings.
Rather than getting upset because your words were completely misinterpreted the first part of the week, Taurus, fall back on knowing tomorrow is another day. It is possible you will be able to make things right later. For now, smile and say nothing.
Unexpected expenses may crop up due to having to entertain your peers at the last minute, Gemini, and just when you were starting to feel like you were getting ahead of the game. Remember to play nice with family on the weekend, OK?
Cancer, please put on your thickest “shell” this week and do your very best to remember your boss probably didn’t intend to sound that harsh or those remarks may not have been directed at you specifically. Do something pleasant and soothing for yourself soonest.
Networking with your peers is still a priority for you, Leo . . . that and socializing. If you have to make last minute travel plans for work, please do your best to avoid stepping on coworker’s toes in the process. Family conflicts may spoil plans for the weekend.
Putting time and energy into your career this week, Virgo, could turn out far better than your love life. You might be unpleasantly surprised to find out your date acting jealous and possessive over what you feel is nothing. Not fun at all.
There is a possibility you might feel besieged again this week, Libra, attempting to juggle career demands, family issues and your partner’s eccentricities. Maybe the best thing you can do is go into hibernation next weekend and give yourself time to regroup.
Even if you have been thinking about taking some vacation time, Scorpio, your plans may fall through due to being unable to find someone to cover for you at work. Rather than frustrate yourself more, let it go for now and try again later.
Impulsive gambles and risk taking could land you in deep financial trouble now, Sagittarius, so please take time to carefully consider what’s at stake before jumping in. This goes for love as well as money and could lead to serious disagreements with your partner.
Please treat your significant other gently this week as they may be feeling hypersensitive to any hint of criticism, Capricorn. The source of the problem could be other members of your extended family . . . perhaps your mother in law? Kind words from you will help.
What you may think are witty remarks, Aquarius, your coworkers could take the wrong way and end up with hurt feelings. By the way, be aware potential lovers may come with some pretty dark baggage. Be careful if you go out to play this weekend.
If you choose, Pisces, you can do a great deal right now to ease other people’s pain and help them feel better about themselves. In this instance, actions may speak louder than words and showing up to actively listen might be all you need to do.
If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too. 😀
