With the Sun and Pluto at odds, your bossy side is likely to take over (especially at home or work). If you sweat the small stuff, then you’ll end up feeling tired and emotional by the end of the week. Perhaps it’s time to de-stress, as you sample a session of meditation or a spot of yoga? You might just enjoy it! Plus pay close attention to the messages in your nightly dreams. Are they trying to tell you something? Thursday is fabulous for love and lashings of romance.
The intensity levels ratchet up this week, as Pluto opposes the Sun. Issues involving relatives, neighbours, travel, education, religion or social media could be particularly fraught. Jealous thoughts and possessive behaviour are also a danger. If you’re not careful, then you could find yourself embroiled in a fiery argument or a frustrating power struggle. Smart Bulls will step back, calm down and gain some much-needed perspective. On Thursday, make a wish and follow your dreams.
Jupiter and Neptune broaden workplace options. And your ambitious aspirations have a very good chance of manifesting, but you must be proactive and selective. So your motto for the moment is from birthday great, actor Harrison Ford “To me, success is choice and opportunity.” But you could become unsettled about a situation involving money matters or trust issues. So avoid making long-term decisions until you can view the situation from a more objective perspective.
With the Sun and Mercury in your sign you’ve got energy to burn, so make sure you channel it into productive and worthwhile pursuits. Mental activities and communication are favoured on Monday and Tuesday, when you’ll pick up information with lightning speed. But don’t allow a loved one to manipulate you on the weekend, when they try to persuade you to do something against your better judgment. Have the emotional strength (and common sense) to stand your ground and say no.
With Venus and Mars both visiting your sign, you’re in the mood to mix and mingle; text and tweet; socialise and circulate. But will other people be happy to hear what you’ve got to say? Saturday and Sunday’s tempestuous stars highlight your inclination to jealous, possessive or overbearing behaviour. So do your best to loosen your intense grip on a loved one Leo, otherwise you’ll just drive them away with your dramatic pronouncements and demanding Diva-like antics.
Relations with a child, teenager or friend will be strained and the more you try to organise them, the worse things will be. So avoid getting drawn into pointless power-plays. The best way you can help loved ones is to support them in practical ways, as they pursue their ambitions and follow their dreams. Criticism is out, and encouragement is in! With Venus and Mars visiting your spiritual and solitude zone, it’s time to de-stress as you meditate, contemplate and recalibrate.
Venus (your patron planet) and Mars are both visiting your hopes and wishes zone. So you’re keen to recharge your run-down batteries, make plans for the present and ponder your future. But avoid over-crowding your busy schedule, overcommitting your time and making promises you can’t keep. And don’t worry about making mistakes. As birthday great Arianna Huffington observes, “The things that go wrong are often the very things that lead to other things going right.”
This week’s s stars boost your personal magnetism – and your manipulative side. Pluto gives you an energy surge that increases your desire to be in charge. But, if you want to avoid unnecessary power struggles and unpleasant dramas, then stop trying to control others. You can be powerful and passionate – or compulsive and controlling. If you’re a smart Scorpio, then you’ll choose the path of least resistance as you channel your energy in positive and proactive ways.
Restless Sagittarius – ‘Keep moving forward and don’t look back’ is your current motto. You’re keen to call the shots this week, but bossy behaviour will only lead to dramas and confrontation. So slip on your humility hat instead. Attached Archers – listen (carefully) to what your partner is saying. Jumping to conclusions is definitely not recommended. Sick and tired of being single? You could be bitten by the love bug while studying or traveling. What a way to go!
This week (courtesy of potent Pluto) an obstacle could be placed in your path or you could be drawn into a power struggle with someone. Which may lead to a perceived problem or failure. That’s OK Capricorn! Sometimes hurdles help us slow down and see the path ahead more clearly, and then we can adjust our compass and tweak our plans. So your motto is from birthday great, writer and businesswoman Arianna Huffington “Failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”
Bohemian Aquarians are free spirits and you could go missing in action this week, as the planetary patterns boost your tendency to detach or run away from difficult situations. Heading for the hills or escaping into a private fantasy land seems appealing but the current problems will still be waiting for you when you return. So you need to get the balance right between dealing with daily challenges when they occur, and retreating into your own wild and wacky inner world.
This week you’ll be given the chance to heal an old emotional wound or patch up a relationship problem. Don’t let false Pisces pride stop you from taking a leap forward when it comes to love and forgiveness. Accept the opportunity gratefully, with outstretched hands and an open heart. Personal projects and close friendships are particularly favoured on Thursday, when the Sun and Neptune encourage you to be friendly and free-spirited; creative and kind.
