The week begins with the tremendous intensity of last week’s Full Moon providing a very potent backdrop. Whatever our situations, there can be a degree of push and pull in terms of our needs and demands. With Mars and the Sun also combining in an obtuse angle to the strict energies of Saturn, there can be a sense of frustration and limitation if it seems emotional dynamics are overriding the facts or reality of a situation. Stand firm against anyone who tends to use a more coercive approach in their dealings.
Fortunately, a quite beautiful link between Mercury and Venus , does give us all an opportunity to levitate the atmosphere, by embracing a more playful and sociable vibe. So if we find ourselves taking something really seriously this week, it may be as well to just step back, take a moment to compose ourselves, and perhaps look at it again, in a new light. Also breaking out of pressurized situations and doing something completely different can also be very positive.
The Quarter Moon at the end of this week however, does emphasize the importance of balancing our individual desires against what is good for us at a more personal or emotional level.
Mars and Pluto continue their feisty feud. We need to continue to know which disputes to engage with, and which to walk away from. Ironically, the Sun forges a truly lovely link to Neptune which asks us to try to react in a humanistic way to any tensions. Seeing why someone may be stressed or finding things difficult, can help us to marshal our own frustrations with them. If you are someone who enjoys fund raising for good causes or doing your bit for those who are less fortunate. If you have a more spiritual dimension in your situation, this too can come to the fore all week.
Wednesday and Thursday see dramatic changes in the heavens, with Venus arriving in Gemini and Mercury in Leo. Although there is that rather more nurturing vibe from the Sun in Cancer, these planetary relocation’s can create more sociable vibe. Inviting friends or family around for a gathering is possible, and this can prove to be very enjoyable.
All this week also sees a fine link between the steadying energies of Saturn in Sagittarius and the Point of Destiny in Leo. New strands, even if dramatic and different can flourish, if they are well thought through and planned.
Sunday sees a Full Moon in Capricorn but this does conjoin with the deep and transformational energies of Pluto and opposing the Sun conjoining with Mars, therefore care is needed around balancing the more emotional and practical elements of our situations and more broadly home and worldly affairs.
This is set to be one of most intense weeks of the whole year and begins with Venus continuing its fabulous angle to Pluto on Monday and Tuesday. This is an influence which can heighten our awareness of the people who are truly valuable to us in our lives. From this a romantic relationship could take on more energy and go through a sense of renewal, or it could be another close link that we can become more appreciative of.
Mercury and Mars are also in a tight combination in Cancer which will go on all week. Furthermore they forge a very positive angle with Neptune in the week’s first half. This asks us to tune in sensitively to atmospheres and is use our more sensory powers in the way we communicate. As it happens this can prove to be of vital help because from Tuesday till Sunday both Mars and Mercury go into opposition with Pluto. Mars in opposition with Pluto, in particular, can be one of the most tricky of all to deal with. There can be huge clashes of will, and people taking entrenched positions or trying to force their views on to others. Avoid people who are known to have more aggressive tendencies or even tougher parts of your locality.
If there is someone in your circle or workplace already who tends to assert their energy powerfully, you may find yourself being more irritated by them. Look to reinforce your boundaries in order to deal with this. Equally, be sure not to be too evangelical or dogmatic about any ideas you may have. Because Mars is in detriment in Cancer, and Mercury does less well in this watery sign, there could be a tendency to react too quickly to what people says, so avoiding a rash responses is essential.
Both Mercury and Mars also clashed with Jupiter, so if we make claims it is going to be important that we can back these up with hard and fast facts, and not be too self-promotional. With the Quarter Moon on Saturday in the sign of Libra, balancing the more emotional facets of relating with our ideas or principles and beliefs is also going to take a degree of care.
The week begins with the North Node, the point of destiny, angling towards Uranus, the planet of surprises. This is a great opportunity for us all to bring a degree of drama and panache into what we are trying to do. After the worthy and service orientated inverse journey through Virgo, now the North Node is urging us to show how talented we can be and the flair that we can demonstrate. In this alliance this could mean pushing the boundaries a little bit and being a little more daring around some of our hopes and expectations.
The Sun and Mercury also forge a fantastic link all week, firstly on Monday and Tuesday in Gemini, and from Wednesday in Cancer . When these two are closely aligned it creates a greater vibration around communications, and how we think, and there could be some moments of absolute ingenuity. But equally we could jump to conclusions around situations before we properly digest the facts so it is going to be really important, not to make assumptions.
However Mercury in the sign of Cancer is an inherently complex location, so until he moves into Leo on 6th July, we need to be sure that were not being overly subjective in how we receive what other people say. It’s possible to take things personally during this time, or misconstrue where people are coming from. The logic of Mercury is somewhat submerged under the watery energies of Cancer. Yet whilst the Sun and Mercury are side-by-side in the second half of this week and there is a New Moon in Cancer on Saturday, there is an opportunity for us all to think about the foundations in our situations, about our physical and emotional environments, where we live who with and how, family interactions, and the whole concept of security. Staying attuned to our senses is going to be very important for the next month.
The second half of this week also sees two very important trine’s, the most enabling of planetary aspects or angles of 190° . This sees Venus forging a deep bond with the planet of truth, change and power, Pluto , and also Mars forging a delicious link with Neptune . Venus’s angle to Pluto can make as much more conscious of the people who really matter in our situations. Everyday scenarios of shopping, cooking, routines, and the like can sometimes erode our consciousness of the value and importance of certain connections. These can become much more obvious to us. If you meet someone and really chime, this could turn out to be a very important relationship, where you may share a deep bond for some time to come. With Mars also in its trine to Neptune our own desire to get what’s good for us on an individual basis, is softened by the more spiritual and self-sacrificing impact of Neptune. So all in all the second half of this week can be a very interesting time in terms of our emotional well-being and interactions with others.
The week begins with Mercury forging a fantastic alliance with Jupiter , the planet of growth. Conversations can prove bright bubbly and optimistic, or or can they? I ask, because also throughout the whole week the Sun in Gemini, is in opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius . This therefore also activates the 3rd/9th house axis, which is also to do with communication. So, although there is this potential for more bubbly interaction, equally we also have to be thoughtful, precise and meaningful in what we say, otherwise people could pick up on it, either in social or more formal situations and challenges follow.
The great news however is that Jupiter is now moving forwards after its recent four-month retrograde, and in general in the sign of Libra, he is asking us to become much more conscious of our attitudes to interactions with others, our relationships in general, and the gift of understanding how life feels for others – even if it’s different to us. The thing is though, despite Jupiter now travelling forwards, he is still forging a Quincunx with the dreamy and drifting energies of Neptune. Understanding our needs and relationships and not becoming overwhelmed by the demands and expectations of others will continue to be the trick.
Ironically Venus the planet of relating but now in the sign of Taurus, forges a gorgeous link with Neptune on Saturday and Sunday. This reminds us that sensitivity and kindness are qualities we can all aspire to all of the time. The second slice of irony however comes from the fact that Neptune itself begins its own 5 1/2 month annual retrograde on Friday.
The Sun however does, despite its opposition with Saturn, forge a fine link with Uranus , urging us to expand our awareness to new ideas, innovation, and to upgrade our thinking where it is appropriate. This would be a fine time to buy a new bicycle, perhaps dual powered car – believe it or not, or to spontaneously get out and about and enjoy lots of small but interesting local trips. If you are someone who has a love of technology, as long as you have done your research and thought things through carefully (Saturn in Sagittarius) then this also can be a positive time of progress.
The week begins with the powerful energies of Mars arriving in the sign of Cancer. Mars is in fall in this location, and with its fiery vibe tempered by the more watery and emotional influence of the Moon, the ruler of Cancer, it is going to be important in the next six weeks for us all to not be too reactive when it comes to any more sensitive issues. Where Mars in this location can be positive is helping us to be more physically active around any changes we wish to make to our homes, be it structural or decorative, or being more motivated to work from our abodes, or create more dynamism around family activities.
On Tuesday, Venus returns home to the sign of Taurus where she is going to be very content over the next twenty eight days. Anything to do with creativity, natural, earthy pleasures, the arts, pottery, home crafts, and good food and wine, are all going to be augmented by this transit. This is also a lovely location in terms of upping the more intimate, sensual side of a close relationship.
Now Venus and Mars are going to spend the rest of this week in a lovely sextile, which is very enabling for relationships, but with Mars to still little bit sheltered, it could be that’s any kind of introduction or improvement around a relationship matter, may come from the prompt of a very close friend, or someone who makes an introduction through a family contact.
On Wednesday, Mercury returns to the sign of Gemini, one of the two zodiac signs he governs, and the next twenty one days can really be a fine opportunity to engage our minds, to be more inquisitive, learn new information, or share talents and skills that we have to a wider audience. This influence to can also be helpful around siblings and neighbours or community matters.
Yet if you tuned in last week you’ll know that the Sun is continuing to square up to the eroding influence of Neptune . So staying focused on the things that are really essential and not letting vague doubts or suggestions undermine confidence does continue to be important. Energy can also be affected by this.
On Friday two major events occur. The first sees Jupiter go direct after a four-month retrograde and this is something we can all celebrate. But there is also a Full Moon in the sign of Sagittarius. This cautions us to be clear in what we’re thinking or articulating to others, and also around travel plans. Anything to do contracts, legal negotiations and the like, will require great care in the following two weeks. Ironically, with Jupiter going forwards this actually can be a very helpful factor around precisely the same areas.
Another very positive feature of this week is that the North Node, now becoming more established in the sign of Leo , is forging a fabulous angle to Uranus, all week. In general this is encouraging us to be much more out there with the things that are important to us, and not be so concerned that people might be judging us or have a different approach to life. So if there is anything very individualistic you wanting to do, this certainly will help.
The week begins with the vibrant energies of last week’s New Moon in Gemini still bubbling away in the heavens. This is augmented this week by one of the most fortunate of all planetary influences, the Sun’s trine to Jupiter. This can help is to feel physically better, to be more active, to engage more with others, and most of all feel that some kind of goodness can come from such exchanges – after all, Jupiter is the planet of good fortune.
In addition to this, Mars also in Gemini is forging a really exciting angle with Uranus , the planet of restlessness. This influence can push us out of our comfort zones, and give us the desire to do something more spontaneously and not be hemmed in by tradition – in the way that we’ve done things in the past. The more spontaneous we can be, the better.
At the heart of the week from Tuesday through to Thursday Mercury is also forging a perfect trine with Pluto . With both located in earth signs, in Taurus and Capricorn respectively, our ability to penetrate down to understand what is really tangible and beneficial to us is going to be very strong. If there is any kind of puzzle that needs to be unpicked in our lives, this will certainly help us to do it.
The second half of the week however, does see a more challenging influence as the Sun begins to square with Neptune which is going to last for the next week. This could erode our energy, especially where we are not really focused, so is going to be important to be very clear in what were trying to achieve. Because of the relative locations of both the Sun and Neptune there could be some gossip going round in the last half of this week. Stay clear of anyone who tends to have a negative impact on your sense of well-being.
Thursday also sees a Quarter Moon in the sign of Virgo. This can create quite a crackling atmosphere in its square with the Sun, for though both are mutable or flexible signs, both are ruled by Mercury, which is all about precision in Virgo but also rules the nervous system. So is going to be important to fine-tune those activities even more, or a degree of stress could be generated by the end of this week.
So, in summary, we have a week where we can feel optimistic hopeful active sociable but this needs to be tempered by need not to get too scattered or to lose focus on what’s really essential.
The week begins with Sun and Mars creating vibrant energy in the sign of Gemini , and this is going to go on all week. With a wonderful new Moon on Wednesday in this sector too, if you have long had that proverbial “book inside” of you or would like to blog, get a website built, or consider a new vehicle, the next month can be a telling time. In general the planets are encouraging more vibrant and upbeat possibilities. There can be greater interaction with those people in our localities, siblings, training schools, sports clubs, gyms, education units, and so on. If there is anything that you’re really enthused about this is a fabulous time to go out and tell other people about it. Equally, we can find ourselves more receptive to the ideas of others.
Venus is also a very important player this week. Located as she is at the midpoint in her journey through Aries , she is forging a wide but very positive angle to Mars. This encourages us to up our vibration when it comes to socializing with others and interacting more frequently. But by Thursday Venus is also in an exact right angle or square with the planets of power and transformation, Pluto. As much as we may encounter some jolly and upbeat people this week, and there can be lots of effervescent and sparkling conversations, understanding the motives of someone we encounter who is quite persuasive, or highly charming, is going to be very important. Why? Well put simply someone’s motives, may not be as pure as driven snow. And whether it’s in a sexual or financial context, this person could have an agenda which is driven by their own personal desires, but at heart is one which is ultimately selfish. So if there is someone you really like in a romantic context, and you’re meeting them for the first time the wise thing to do would be to get to know them better before making any kind of binding judgement.
The same is true if a financial offer is made to us which seems almost too good to be true. If it does, it probably is, and should be declined. However this is not to say that there cannot be some positive financial developments, and even ones that could have more of an altruistic dimension, for Mercury forges a fine link with Neptune as the week comes to a close. But it’s just about divining which is which, and that will mean listening carefully to our inner voices.
The week begins with Sun angling up to Saturn in an inconjunction. In fact, this aspect is going to go on until Saturday. This challenges us to balance our desire for life’s pleasures with what we can realistically afford. The Sun in Taurus is also concerned with our self-value and there may be situations this week where we feel we are unworthy because we scrutinize our knowledge around a situation and think that we fall short. Fortunately, Mercury returns to Taurus on Tuesday for the first time since the 20th of April. If you recall he was involved in a retrograde and by the end of this week will return to 4° Taurus where the retrograde first began on the 9th April. If something to do with a financial matter or any other key strand has been bogged down or snared during that period of time, now it can begin to be resolved.
Mars also continues its positive angle to Jupiter through to the middle of this week. However, it continues to be snagged by Neptune. As long as we are very clear about what we’re trying to achieve and the information is based upon, this is a great opportunity to take some confident action if not, hold firm. Alternatively Venus also forges a very sweet link to Neptune this week, which may mean that someone can let us know in a rather a discreet way how much they care for us. This may not be something that someone actually says so watch out for body language too.
Friday sees a Quarter Moon in Aquarius. Once more this is emphasizing the values of life in a slightly different way. Here it’s more to do with the way in which we meshing with our friends or ask just to consider whether we are being too materialistic or need to be less idealistic. If there is a group situation where generosity is not being appreciated, or a friend is taking us for granted, the following week will be a time to act. The Sun also moves on Sunday this week into the sign of Gemini, where it will be for the following four weeks. With Mars already in this location, this is a great opportunity to inject greater verve, and vim into our social and everyday interactions. Thoughts of getting fitter can be turned into action. Anything to do with communication or learning are also going to be finely supported. For more information or to watch your zodiac sign Weekly Video forecast, please see below.
The week begins with Mercury continuing to align with Uranus in Aries. This influence goes on all week and can create an enormous amount of mental stimulation and excitement. Mundane aspects of life can become a little dull and unattractive. Essentially we are looking for an edge and can become more easily impatient when we meet limitations or obstacles. The upside of this influence however is that it can give us a desire for new interests and subjects, and push us to initiate new beginnings whereas in the past we may have been reluctant to make a move.
Also this week Mars continues its right angle with Neptune . This is the trickster influence bar none. Because Mars is very much to do with of our desires, our drive, and is our physical energy, located as it is in Gemini it can be somewhat more impulsive. Along with the combination between Mercury and Uranus, it’s going to be more difficult for us to sit still for more than five minutes. But this is the classic smoke and mirrors, because such can be compulsion to pursue anything that we find pleasurable, whilst Neptune can distort the reality so that what we try to hunt down is not necessarily what we think it is, has been misrepresented, or is being dishonestly represented. If there is someone that you’re finding exciting in your love life, get to know them a little better before making your final decision. If there is a big-ticket item that you’re interested in, and a car would not be a surprise with Mars in Gemini, be absolutely sure about its services history, past maintenance and affordability.
However Mars does forge a much more delightful link this week with the planet of growth and optimism and in astrology, traditionally of good fortune, Jupiter. These two are egging each other on in a really positive manner and the combination can give us much more self-confidence but especially about expressing our ideas. With Jupiter about travel and Mars about motion in the sign of Gemini, many of us could be on the move, and if it is to somewhere that’s richly interesting, that is all for the better.
From Monday to Thursday the Sun continues its superb angle to the planet of transformation Pluto. Although Pluto can be about elimination, this aspect is very much more about transformation, and with both located in solid earth zodiac signs in Taurus and Capricorn respectively, the changes that we can carry out which are well planned and executed and are working towards a deeper connectivity with our truest potential, can be very long lasting.
This week also sees on Wednesday a full Moon in the sign of Scorpio. This intense lunation can be very much to do with possessions, money, property, and luxury goods. But what we are being challenged to do here is to balance our desire for such things against the reality of making our budget add up every day in our personal situations, which comes from the energy of Taurus. It is possible therefore the some unexpected expenses could creep in in the following two weeks, for what we can do is try to rein in any temptation to spend cash or indulge ourselves in ways which are not necessarily good for our souls. Furthermore, this Full Moon can also be very important in very close relationships. If intimacy is working well in your tie, or cooperation in a business relationship, this will be something to celebrate. If however there is in such tranquil communication or connection going on, it may need challenging.
However, perhaps the most important events of this week also occurs on Wednesday when the point of destiny, the North Node reverses back into the sign of Leo. Over the last nineteen months, it has been located in the virtuous Virgo, balanced by the South Node, in the more emotional Pisces. This new nodal access, is between the North node in Leo and the South in Aquarius . In some ways this is going to be about balancing our egos against the greater good in other words the more spiritual dimension of the sign of Aquarius. But the thing there is an opportunity for us all to try to embrace a more self creative side of our natures and potentials over the next year and a half.
