This is a big week on the big stage with U.S./North Korea talks, all kinds of shenanigans going on in the G7, genuine signs of decay in societies and civilizations globally. This isn’t the first time in history this type of thing has gone on, but it’s a first for many of us so we react in one way or another due to instant access to whatever numerable sources we now have. While these things will eventually affect us (in the pocketbook, as always), it’s good to step back and realize we are part of these changes, and we can find all kinds of creative ways to deal with them. The planetary aspects will show up as wins and losses out in the wild this week.
Tuesday night the New Moon in Gemini erases distractions, lack of attention and impatience, making way for a calmer way of dealing with things. Also Mercury moves into compassionate Cancer, bringing communication and thinking to focus on caring for ourselves, our families, friends, communities and the downtrodden. Watch for news items regarding more attempts for solutions for the homeless and down on their luck. A bit of kindness can go a long way, so hopefully we can give what we can.
On Wednesday, Venus moves into Leo. This is a sign she loves to be in because she rules self-esteem and Leo is one of the most image conscious signs in the Zodiac. Makeover time! Whatever it takes to help us feel more confident, increase our sense of self-worth and overcome lack of confidence that is unfounded.
This will be a good week for self-growth, letting go of bad habits and staking our claim.
Make it a good week and keep looking after each other!
