After dodging last week’s celestial bullets, this week’s more sedate sky will be very welcome. Enjoy the calm because it won’t last long, next week when the Libra Sun pushes back at Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn could get exciting.
What we have this week is a calming inconjunct between dreamy Neptune in Pisces and the Libra Sun. One of Libra’s tasks is to encourage awareness of others and the possibility we can accomplish more as part of a team than as an individual. Neptune at its best teaches compassion and the realization there is far more room in our hearts than we think there is. Romantic liaisons are one way to experience this energy and another is giving other people a helping hand or a friendly ear.
When the Sun is in Libra this year, Venus will be in Scorpio and Sagittarius. Scorpio is Libra’s second house of personal values and money. Those who have Sun in Libra with Venus in Scorpio pay more attention to their financial situation and are aware of the need for a good budget. They are often more pragmatic than idealistic too. Now those Libras with Venus in Sagittarius may trust their luck more than may be good for them and enjoy exercising their minds learning new things. Sagittarius is Libra’s third house of thinking and learning.
Venus in Scorpio makes a fortunate trine to Jupiter in Cancer and a passion igniting square to Mars in Leo. The first one may be great for gambling on love and seeing it work. The second can be much riskier because if things go wrong there may be no way to mend them. Attempting to make your lover jealous could have dire consequences with both Venus and Mars in unforgiving fixed signs.
Speaking of Scorpio, Mercury will leave Libra for Scorpio on Sunday and become a whole lot less interested in being fair minded. Whilst Scorpio is perfectly capable at seeing both sides, they will probably go with their gut instincts instead and ally themselves with one side or the other.
For the next few weeks as the Sun travels through Libra, it is a good idea to take a look at the house Libra rules in your chart and prepare to make some compromises in that area. Listen carefully when discussing the issues of that house rather than insisting on doing things your way. Libra values a fair exchange.
OK, Aries, it is your significant other and your oldest friends who will probably be able to give the best feedback now. This is especially true when it comes to love and money. You know in your heart they are the people who have your back.
If you need to sweet talk your partner, Taurus, this week is a great time for that though you might lay it on a little thick. Dealings with coworkers, employees and business consultants are where you may have to give a little to get a little.
Your creativity gets a big boost now, Gemini, as do opportunities to play or indulge your inner child. If you are an artist or writer this is an especially good week for solving creative problems as your mind is very agile right now.
For some of you, Cancer, this week holds the promise of romance whilst for others it may bring pleasant opportunities for self-expression. This is also the time of year when it is good to take time to touch base with your family.
Time to get back in touch with your inner diplomat, Leo! If you have been growling and snarling a lot lately maybe it is also time to plan on making amends. This probably won’t come easy for you, so take your time.
Money, ways of earning it and how best to manage it, could be your main focus for awhile, Virgo. Ordinarily speaking up and stating your opinion is not your favorite thing but for now you will find this easier to manage than usual.
Libra, it is your turn to be the focus of attention. Enjoy your moment and enjoy the relative peace this week may bring. Recognition in your career has the potential to improve your income now or at least make you feel valued. Nice!
I wouldn’t be surprised to learn you are feeling empowered these days, Scorpio, and hopefully it agrees with you. Attracting the attention of high powered types at work may not work out so well right now. Take a personal day or two?
You usually enjoy spending time with your friends and associates, Sagittarius, and if you can socialize for a good cause so much the better. You might even be inspired to volunteer to do some charity work now and your cheerful attitude will be most welcome.
The efforts you have put forth recently to network with respected colleagues may pay off by boosting your career, Capricorn. Even though you have probably put in some long hours, your partner is still there cheering you on. Do something special for them please.
This is often the time of year you may start dreaming of doing a little traveling, Aquarius, but this year your many work obligations could prevent you from doing that. Keep an open mind when discussing issues with your significant other this weekend.
Even if you don’t usually pay attention to your dreams, Pisces, please do this week because they may hold the key to transforming some aspect of yourself you are currently uncomfortable with. Time spent playing can also be very beneficial to your sense of well being.
If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too. 😀
