This week stress levels will be high and energy low, as motivation dips and frustration soars. Taskmaster Saturn squares your ruler Mars, which will certainly test your limited patience but – with focus and determination – you’ll navigate your way around any temporary roadblocks. Things improve from Friday onwards. Hopefully you’ll learn some valuable lessons – like slowing down, keeping things in perspective, and calming yourself within.
Stubborn, slow-moving Bulls prefer things to proceed smoothly, with no sudden surprises along the way. However, with Uranus still transiting through your sign, life continues to be a series of ups and downs. Singer-songwriter-musician Neil Young (who was born on November 12, 1945) observes, “As you go through life, you’ve got to see the valleys as well as the peaks.” This week the focus is on relationships, conversation and co-operation. Feel the love Taurus!
Your ruler Mercury hooks up with Mars on Wednesday, which gives you the motivation to put ideas into practice. And it can also signal a fresh start involving health, work habits or pets. Some vigorous physical exercise will certainly help you bounce through the week with extra Gemini gusto and enthusiasm. But if you don’t communicate clearly, then misunderstandings are likely (especially on the weekend). So think things through before you speak.
The planets shine a bright spotlight on partnerships of the romantic, platonic, business and family variety. You are entering a period of nurturing old relationships and establishing new ones. So it’s a wonderful time to focus on friendships, shared hobbies, joint ventures and having fun. As Scorpio birthday great Robert Louis Stevenson observed, “A friend is a gift you give yourself.” But tread carefully when it comes to financial matters.
Many lively Lions are in for a magical week, as the Sun (your power planet) forms a fabulous flowing aspect with Neptune. So it’s time to be the flamboyant and creative person you were born to be. That doesn’t mean there won’t be problems, challenges or frustrations along the way. But it does mean that your positive attitude and natural enthusiasm will bolster your spirits and enhance the lives of those around you. Prepare to sparkle and shine!
This week there’s a magical connection between the Sun and Neptune, so there is much satisfaction to be gained through contributing your considerable talents to a worthy cause within your neighbourhood community. You really can make a difference if you think global and act local! But relations with a family member or work colleague could be challenging (especially mid-week). So make sure you pick your battles carefully and choose your words wisely.
The flowing Sun-Neptune trine is terrific for flights of imagination, ambitious dreams, creative projects and all forms of self-expression (especially art, music and fashion). However – with Mars, Saturn and Uranus disrupting your money zone – don’t blow the budget by indulging in an impulsive and extravagant spending spree! This week you are faced with a stark choice Libra … find clever ways to boost cash flow or learn to live within your means.
Have you been procrastinating about an important issue? Or have you lacked the self-belief to push a project forward? It’s time to be bold, brave and proactive, as the terrific trio of the Sun, Mercury and mighty Mars march through your sign (which only happens every two years). So make the most of this awesome opportunity Scorpio! Confidence is in and complacency is out, as you go after what you want with plenty of passion, purpose and pizazz.
If you stir up grievances with an old adversary this week, then you could find you’ve bitten off more than you can comfortably chew! The Sun trines Neptune (on Friday and Saturday) which favours balancing material and spiritual needs. Plus, when it comes to a frustrating problem, avoid quick fixes. You’ll find a satisfactory solution if you act on your hunches, do all the research that’s required, and look for the facts that are hidden beneath the surface.
Aim to be more proactive, especially when it comes to networking with friends and colleagues. And don’t let annoying disruptions get you down. No one wants to be around a grumpy Goat! Instead of brooding when other people don’t understand what you want, tell them exactly what you need. And learn to delegate, de-stress and de-compress. Take some time off so you can enjoy doing the things you love. No one (not even a capable Capricorn) is indispensable.
Unpredictable Uranus (your power planet) is stirring up some shenanigans involving your domestic life, house mates or family members. In order to limit the chance of fiery words and messy misunderstandings, do your best to communicate clearly and carefully. And remember – when it comes to relationships, you’re not suited to ‘normal’ partnerships (whether of the romantic, platonic or business variety). For quirky Aquarians, ‘weird’ can be wonderful.
This week the Sun-Neptune trine inspires you to contemplate and create your future. Whether you want to travel, build a home, expand your family or change jobs, begin with a dream and then work hard to make it a robust reality. Dreams are wasted if you don’t turn them into productive projects! But a relationship could experience problems as the Saturn squares boost impatience and heighten sensitivities. A healthy dose of Piscean diplomacy will get you through.
