This week has an energetic kick to it; Venus, the planet governing self-esteem, love, empowerment and renewal moves into forceful Aries on Monday. This gives us a boost in matters that concern ourselves and our involvement with the world in whatever manner we find ourselves. This period of time is best utilized in finding ways to better care for ourselves by tuning into our own needs and making sure we are recharged before going out to help others or tackle new projects.
Venus is in a lovely alignment to Mercury in his own sign of Gemini, which makes for excellent communication in terms of what is needed at any given time, and those needs being met. Across the board, self-care makes for better results all the way around. I don’t mean self-indulgence. Self-care means time to recharge, taking care of ourselves in a healthy fashion and keeping boundaries intact. Discernment is a powerful self-care tool; we can only do so much for so many. The needs seem to be so great right now. Seeing one through before taking on another is critical. Venus helps with this.
The week will pick up the pace right away, so fasten your seat belts!
Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…
Keep looking after each other!
