This week is going to make us feel like we’re in a mine field of one type or another, then flip to having us tiptoe through the tulips. Changes and upheavals to plans will force us to adapt (unless we have the foresight to have contingencies). It will be a rather intense week, so be sure to have an escape hatch at the ready.
The Full Moon will be in Capricorn this week and her influence will be good for all of us since her alignment with Uranus in Taurus will bring unexpected but fortunate events for us. The current political climate is likely to heat up even more now as more events occur that ignite strong emotions. Stay off the radar if possible and if you’re the type that gets really angry or depressed by what you’re seeing and hearing on the airwaves, choose music instead that brings up the memories of your best times.
Thanks for your patience with my emergency and lack of a column last week. I managed to get done what needed to be done, living my motto: Keep looking after each other!
Aries (March 21- April 19): Your Ruler Mars is causing all kinds of trouble now, opposing Venus and square to Jupiter. You may be feeling the effects of this in your relationships and friendships; letdowns occur, you cancel social activities and feel like pulling back. This isn’t an easy time for you, but take heart because Mercury will enter your sector of Creative Expression, join up with Venus there, and talk Mars out of his cranky mood. Look for resolution later this week. The Full Moon in your sector of Career/Ultimate Potential will shine light on practical ways to reach your immediate goals.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Don’t be surprised to find yourself flying off the handle at random things; Mercury in your sector of Thinking/Communicating is about to move into your sector of Creative Expression and is at odds with chaotic Uranus in your sign. It may be a rollercoaster of a week for you. The Full Moon in your sector of Expansion will illuminate your desire to further your education, horizons, and mind. You’ll want to stretch and feel your own space without mental or physical clutter. This will give you room to learn some new things that will help you ponder new possibilities.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): This could feel like a spasmo week due to alignments changing rapidly, so stay focused on only one or two things and don’t go bouncing off the walls! Mars in your sector of Expansion is arguing with Jupiter and Venus right now and your Ruler Mercury will move next to Venus later this week in your sector of Thinking/Communication so you may get fixated on stuff to worry about. Don’t waste your energy worrying! Turn that into proactive energy and find solutions instead. The Full Moon in your sector of Work/Health will help you get things finished and be able to move on to more fun stuff.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): This week will either scare you or thrill you (maybe both!). It will be a week of changes in the manner of things going wrong them righting themselves, so you could be frustrated and feeling like you’re doing nothing but problem solving and fixing. Mercury in your sign moves into your sector of Finances/Resources to join Venus, and with Mars opposing them you may have some unexpected expenses so be prepared. The Full Moon occurs in your sector of Relationships, putting her romantic tendencies into the picture. It will enliven your senses!
Leo (July 23-August 22): What a week! Mercury will join Venus in your sign and since both will oppose Mars who’s in your sector of Relationships, you may have some weirdnesses with people close to you. It will be random stuff that either delights or annoys you, so be prepared to flee, fight or ignore. The Full Moon on Thursday occurs in your sector of Work/Health, presenting practical ways to make the changes necessary to help you feel fulfilled and in charge of your life. All in all, not a bad week if you can get a grip on the silly stuff happening around you.
Virgo (August 23-September 21): This week holds some good stuff and some challenging stuff; Mercury will join Venus in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings and both will oppose energetic Mars in your sector of Work/Health. This indicates you may be pondering leaving your job in order to find something less tedious or difficult. It’s likely you already have something lined up, so if you’re applying, you’ll likely land the job. The Full Moon in your sector of Creative Expression makes it even more likely that you can look forward to an improvement in your life, which will be welcome.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): If you’re looking for balance, don’t expect to find it this week; some silly alignments will make things challenging, but you’ll get through it. Mercury moves into your sector of Friends/Goals and joins Venus. Mars in your sector of Creative Expression will spice things up in some manner by randomly dropping surprises that will either make you change course around the corner on two wheels or simply throw a nice little obstacle into things. The Full Moon in your sector of Home will highlight your need to spend more time there, resting and recharging.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): This week will have its twists and turns, mostly due to Mercury joining Venus in your sector of Career/Ultimate Potential. This pair opposes Mare in your sector of Home, creating a dilemma since Mars is still butting heads with Jupiter who is in your sign. You like to get to the bottom of things, and what is presented to you will likely be straightforward and uncomplicated but random and out of nowhere. Always something, right? The Full Moon will occur in your sector of Thinking/Communicating, encouraging you to use your light in the darkness or be that single candle that guides others to where they need to be.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): This week will be mixed and varied, kind of like 52 Pickup. Fortunately, you’re one of the most adaptable signs and often a challenge to you is a target to shoot. Mercury joins Venus in your sector of Expansion and they will oppose Mars who’s in your sector of Thinking/Communication. This alignment has the potential to present something to you that counters the way you normally think, or the opposite of what you thought would happen is what will happen. Hold things loosely and just stay tuned. The Full Moon lights up your sector of Finances/Resources, affording you a way to ease any financial burdens you may have.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): This week won’t be comfortably stable due to some really crazy alignments coming and going. The primary focus is Mercury moving into your sector of Shared Assets, joining Venus. Mars is opposing these two in your sector of Finances/Resources. This could create some kind of slipup in your banking or debit/credit card accounts. Be on the lookout for a hack, a lost card or an error that may alarm you. The good news is that you get your one Full Moon of the year on Thursday! The Full Moon in your own sign sets you up for heightened senses and bang-on intuition for the next few months. Use it to your full advantage!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 20): Mars in your sign is going to take you on an adventure this week, propelling you into randomly being a part of or causing chaos. Mercury and Venus now oppose Mars in your sector of Relationships; this could encourage a backfire of communication with your nearest and dearest people. Pull out that magic wand and prepare to smack people with it, or just try to run faster than them. The Full Moon in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings helps you see the light at the end of the tunnel on projects that have been in place for a while. You’ll be able to put them to rest soon.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): This week is going to have some piles on the ground that you’ll step in if you’re not careful! Mercury joins Venus in your sector of Work/Health and they both oppose Mars in your sector of Endings/New Beginnings. Your sector of Career/Ultimate Potential is also involved; if you’re looking to expand something now, you may want to consider putting it off for a bit since this is a time of contractions. The Full Moon in your sector of Friends/Goals highlights the need for advice/support from your most trusted friends. They’ll be there for you, so plan a powwow soon!
