It’s a quieter week overall, though communication is highlighted with Mercury making all the punctuation marks and conveying a very important message through Scorpio. Sandwiched between two pretty intense weeks, this one provides a respite, a chance to see or consider where all this might be headed, though this is still not likely to best moment to put fourth a major effort or make a long standing decision, particularly in regard to committed love relationship or important financial negotiation.
Meanwhile, a very positive breakthrough is possible when Mercury lands on retrograde Venus Monday night, offering an opportunity to articulate the feelings associated with this transit. A heart to heart with a close and trusted friend can be very productive, and more so even if you connect with your partner and share what’s on your mind. It’s easier now to express loving feelings, even if they have been more difficult to come by, and from Scorpio this special contact makes it possible to look within at what you really want and how far you are willing to go to get it.
From Sunday into Tuesdays 2nd Quarter Moon, there is a glimpse of what the Taurus Full Moon has in store next week, and progress can be made on initiatives that were begun over the Libra New Moon phase last Monday – Tuesday. Aspects to Saturn, Uranus and Venus from the Moon in Capricorn provide a great deal of harmonious stimulation in the early days of the week. Energy will be focused and attuned to goals with a helpful dose of innovation and creativity aiding the process by offering a fresh perspective on the topics at hand.
Towards the end of the week a different set of priorities emerges, when Mercury attunes brilliantly with inspirational Neptune, shedding some light on something really cherished or even sacred to you. Intuition runs strong, augmented by the Moon in Pisces later in the day. A more obstinate tone is struck midday, when a very abrasive and argumentative angle is formed by Mercury to Mars. At it’s best this can be a good time for getting a lot done, but don’t make haste. This also only applies if you can work without letting your own mood or that of others send you down a road of contention and hostility. Save those snarky bits to a secret folder and keep them off social media (or someone’s inbox) for the time being. If it’s still relevant, say, at the beginning of next week, then feel free to express yourself.
ARIES March 20 – April 19
A professional matter needs to be addressed this week. Steps you take may culminate in a powerful financial opportunity that emerges next week. Success will come if you think outside of the parameters you are currently operating in and try something defiantly different from your norm. From Friday, unwind and relax. It will be all systems go beginning next week and you will want to be at your tippy top.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Wherever you may be at in a partnership, (coming or going? still uncertain?) Monday will provide an insight that will be quite helpful. This story still mutates over the next month, until at least 16 November, when Venus resumes direct motion. If you feel out of sorts during this period, use this to reflect on where you seek self improvement and make a plan you can put into motion between now and New Years Eve.
GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Where productivity may have proved challenging in recent times, you gain a valuable insight in the early days of the week, perhaps even a lead on a new job. The end of the week is also favored, though you have to watch your words. Intimate matters continue to feature largely, and you reach a turning point here as well. While it may take a bit longer to settle this issue, a decisive step can be made on Tuesday.
CANCER June 21 – July 22
There are some positive indication this week affecting your most committed and loving relationship. If you’ve had difficulty expressing your desires, the words or a meaningful gesture may come more easily to you now. Friday can be ideal for sharing love or inspiration. Some of this has to do with self awareness, and if a part of your persona has been dormant, it may be revealed during the quarter Moon phase opposite your sign on Tuesday.
LEO July 23 – August 22
You make some progress this week on the home front, and although this situation won’t be resolved for another month, it’s possible that you reach a decision, if only to put it into motion down the line. A family legacy may be crucial to this and an important conversation that occurs at the end of the week can be fruitful. A partner could be less enthusiastic about matters and express themselves quite vocally.
VIRGO August 23 – September 22
A love relationship could be reaching a turning point this week, and a conversation on Monday could easily set the stage for a major decision or move forward. Friday is lovely for connecting to the one you love, make a plan to get together. Contention at work could prove vexing on the other hand. Someone is likely being temperamental and it’s up to you to choose whether or not you want to indulge an outburst or walk away.
LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Financial matters continue to preoccupy, and you can make positive decisions Monday that will bring you rewards in the near future. While this is likely a lucrative month for you, spending all your time with your mind on your money and your money on your mind could also point to a desire to be distracted from relational issues that have been tricky over recent weeks. Remind someone close to your heart that although you may be busy, you value them too.
SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
It’s a busy period for you, and although a part of you still craves some time behind the scenes, important negotiations are transpiring this week that will move you closer to your objectives. Putting in an effort now yields fantastic personal and/or financial rewards by the end of the year. A super romantic vibe permeates on Friday, and even if a relationship is a bit sideways with Venus in retrograde, you may enjoy a sweet moment with someone close to your heart.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
While the astroscape is deep in the Scorpio season, you may find yourself withdrawn, musing over the past and clearing the way to a bright future forthcoming. The quarter Moon presides over a significant financial decision. Follow a hunch here and reap a reward. Your instincts are pivotal in coming to a decision about a residential matter towards the end of the week. This is a good moment to make your house your home.
CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You can present your message clearly this week, and a special project could get the attention required to give you the green light. Watch financial negotiations towards the end of the week as a conversation can become prickly. A quarter Moon in your sign on Tuesday places an emphasis on who you are and what you are becoming. The hard work you are putting in now will pay off within the next year or so, keep climbing!
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
The emphasis on your profession remains through the end of the month, and steps you take this week assure a bright outcome by the end of the year. Intuition is strong in the first part of the week and most likely you will be most productive working behind the scenes. Friday features inspiration, but there may also be a confrontational episode with a boss or authority figure. Watch your words if you seek to protect your position and/or reputation.
PISCES February 19 – March 20
Issues and individuals at a distance are appealing for you this month, and even if a relationship or opportunity abroad has come under question, important conversations this week will help you to right the course by the end of the year. The quarter Moon on Tuesday rekindles enthusiasm about this and makes you optimistic for what is in store. La Luna moves into your sign over next weekend, and will help you to reconnect with what matters most to you.
