The week begins with the Sun burning brightly in the sign of Leo. This of course is its home position, and along with Mars is providing a fantastic level of vibrancy energy and drive at this time. This is a wonderful week for us all to embrace our creative qualities, and the more playful strands of life too. Look to be as self expressive as possible.
However despite this, Venus moves into the more reflective location, of Cancer on Tuesday, however she does make a fine link with the practical energies of Mercury, so if you want to direct the creativity that comes from the Sun and Mars into beautifying your home creating a new Home Office or working on the outside space to make it more pleasant and peaceful, all this can be a great thing to do
On Thursday Uranus goes into a retrograde. This will last for 5 1/2 months, and asks us to think carefully about our need for freedom, just how self expressive we feel we can be and are there any relationships in our lives, which are too codependent, or compromised by the needs of others.
The other big influence this week concerns Jupiter and Pluto. When these two are in a square as they are here, there can be a tendency to chase down our ambitions at the cost of doing things in a right and proper way. For example if we have an opportunity to progress but are tempted by a shortcut, one that may run against our values, or even be unethical or may see someone else suffer in order that we reach our personal goals, then do try to resist. However this aspect can still be very good for making progress, being self-confident, and showing drive, as long as we can maintain our relationships within our ambitions.
