Leading off the week is the Full Moon in Pisces. The Moon is closely conjunct Chiron in Pisces and one of the messages it brings is about self-healing. All those who give selflessly and nurture others often forget they need to take time to nurture themselves. Loving and caring for ourselves needs to take top priority, not be treated as an afterthought.
On Monday, Uranus in Aries will be causing the Virgo Sun fits via an inconjunct because it has no respect for Virgo’s carefully thought out schedules. However this influence will pass fairly quickly and Saturn in Scorpio comes around on Thursday to help us get our daily routines back in place in order to maintain our health and well being. Those who have personal planets from 14° to 16° in the cardinal signs are probably in need of a good stress reduction program thanks to Uranus running through and disturbing the status quo.
Mercury, Virgo’s ruler, has the most attention this week and much of it is not exactly easy to handle. Mercury is in Libra now and vulnerable to being thrown off balance . . . something Pluto in Capricorn will do on Tuesday and Uranus in Aries on Saturday. Poor Mercury doesn’t stand a chance against either of those two planets, so our decision making ability may be impacted on those days. Watch out for controlling people demanding everything their way and those erratic types who run off leaving someone else to pick up the pieces. Jupiter in Leo will offer Mercury support on Wednesday but may only make matters worse because his tendency to exaggerate may distort the facts. Take extra care to be honest, direct and clear when discussing anything of importance this week. Err on the side of fairness!
Two bright spots this week involve the other two personal planets, Venus and Mars. Venus in Virgo goes dancing with Neptune in Pisces on Wednesday, kindling a spirit of romance in this earthy Venus. Over the weekend, Venus will be trine Pluto in Capricorn, bringing opportunities to awaken passion by exploring our sensual side.
I know plenty of people who have not particularly enjoyed Mars in Scorpio and it has been quite intense at times what with Mars conjoining Saturn and squaring the Leo planets. However we can put all that behind us when Mars breaks out into fiery Sagittarius on Saturday. The Scorpio-Sagittarius transition is one of the more dramatic ones. Mars in Scorpio makes no more aspects on its way out this week so perhaps we may finally be able to experience the intrinsic power of this Mars without wincing.
If we can remember to be tactful and kind in our communications this week, it is an excellent time to handle the day to day details in our busy lives. Staying firmly focused in the here and now is the best approach unless you are one of the lucky ones busy falling in love!
If you know your Rising sign, please read the horoscope for it too. 😀
Letting your impatience get the best of you when talking to your partner this week, Aries, could end very badly. Yes, your work is demanding and continues to absorb a great deal of your time and energy but that’s no excuse for being abrupt. Blow off steam over the weekend by doing something very physical.
Other people’s dramas probably won’t affect you much, Taurus, because all is well in your little corner of the world. It should be easy for you to find time to relax and enjoy an evening out with your loved one. By the way, you may also come across an excellent investment opportunity.
Be very, very careful when promoting your brilliant ideas this week, Gemini, because it could be all too easy for you to end up being overly dramatic and that may not go over well with some parties. Shoot for elegance, simplicity and style in your presentations. Sunday looks like the best day for social activities.
A dicey situation may crop up in a very public way for you this week, Cancer, and catch you off guard. Your charming delivery has been working quite well for you recently and probably will save the day again. Look for a renewed interest in stepping up your health and exercise routine starting this weekend.
Take extra care before speaking now, Leo, or you could end up saying something you may regret later. You might come across far more forcefully than you realize early in the week and be too abrupt in expressing your thoughts later on. As I said . . . think carefully before opening your mouth!!
Monday may be an interesting day for you, Virgo, but once the dust settles the rest of the week looks favorable. Remember to smile and be tactful if you need to let someone know they’ve been behaving like an idiot. If you have ideas for home improvements, the energy to tackle those emerges this weekend.
You are usually the soul of tact and diplomacy, Libra, but that might not be the case at this time. If the occasion calls for speaking forcefully and to the point, you may surprise yourself by doing just that. If you need to sell an idea, do so midweek and anyone bugging you on the weekend may get an earful!
You continue to be a force to be reckoned with, Scorpio, and anyone foolish enough to get in your way may live to regret it. Take advantage of networking options midweek to expand your reach. After this week, you may find yourself turning your attention to improving your cash flow.
This is a good time to burnish your public image, Sagittarius, and if you need to spend some money to do so, it could work out well for you. Where you may get a lot of mixed messages coming in this week is from your circle of friends. Take your time sorting those out. Burst of energy coming your way soon!
If you have had some travel plans in the works, Capricorn, those could come together this week. One area where you may get conflicting messages is at work. Striking the right tone is important and you might come across too strong early in the week and too impatient later on. Shoot for respectful but firm.
You are another, Aquarius, who may benefit from doing a serious job of mentally editing what you say before you speak this week. Otherwise you may do yourself more harm than good. Your ability to think on your feet is quite good so you can do this! Practice patience.
Pisces, other people may look to you for kindness and sympathy this week, something you are usually good at delivering. For the most part all you might have to do is be an active listener . . . something many people do not do well. Prepare yourself for more activity at work in the coming weeks.
