This week is somewhat quieter than last week but it will not be one where you can just cruise as there will be challenges coming your way. Overall, the advice is to remain present in the moment instead of trying to avoid reality as this could lead you into taking inappropriate actions. This applies mainly to the regular working week of Monday to Friday. It would be wise to leave making any major decisions for a couple of weeks, when the energies are more conducive. Wednesday could well offer you some respite from the tensions around you, particularly if you are able to become involved in some type of creative activity. By the time you reach the end of the working week, everyone will be more than ready to relax and shake off the week and celebrate ‘surviving’! These positive energies will continue into and throughout the weekend. Try to spend time socialising on Saturday and enjoy Sunday which will be full of enthusiasm, self-confidence and romance.
Your week starts with the Moon moving into the star sign of Sagittarius that may well bring a bit more optimism than you generally feel. As a result, you could start looking at all the possible openings ahead of you, as opposed to focusing on potential barriers. Be prepared for your thoughts to enter new and exciting areas. The combination of Sagittarius and the Moon will awaken your sense of adventure. You will look to broaden your horizons, either by travelling or by following self-directed learning.
The following day falls under the influence of the Moon forming a quincunx angle with Uranus, which could result in changeable moods, emotional outbursts or irritability. You may well find that your sleep or eating habits could be disrupted. It is also possible that you could be affected by an event or strange behaviour from a family member that may leave you feeling insecure. There is also a karmic energy around you that is connected to a female in your life; this could be a female relative or a particular woman around you and this will require an adjustment to be made within the relationship. Also be prepared for an unexpected but very beneficial opportunity to open up for you. It will be important that your tendency to be impulsive could indicate that you slow yourself down to create some time and space to think carefully about the potential outcomes before making a full commitment.
You’ve made it to the middle of the working week … well done. Today is showing the effects of the Moon and Saturn forming a favourable sextile angle that will support you to focus on whatever is currently important in your life, particularly the structures that form the foundation of your values, beliefs and morals. The planetary positions will aid you to adopt and maintain a discipline but steady pace towards achieving your daily accountabilities. If you have found that you have been fearful or anxious recently, today would be ideal to look at your immediate surroundings to identify resources and/or people who could be helpful to you and aid you to feel more secure within that setting. Don’t forget that you need to tend to your own personal needs and self-care. Often you become side-tracked by the wider, global concerns but by caring for your personal needs will enable you to focus more clearly on the other concerns.
The weekend is getting closer and, again, planets are on the move with Venus entering the star sign of Taurus which will bring the beauty of the world into focus. The partnership of Venus and Taurus indicates that the time has arrived to simplify complex procedures or situations, in other words getting back to basics. This is the ideal time to bring love and money issues into the open, so making them easier to address in a direct way. If you are dating this is a perfect time to slow down, be present in the moment and finding ways to share enjoyment with someone special. It will be a period when you both will be in an indulgent mood. The sign of Taurus brings with it the need for stability over-ruling the desire to enter into an ardent but casual fling with someone of interest. The pull will be towards building a committed relationship with both parties striving to create the best possible scenario.
Fabulous … you’ve made it to the end of the business week and you can really start anticipating the weekend. However, you still need to get through this day, which falls under the influence of the Moon and Mercury forming a sextile angle that indicates you are likely to have a strong pull to trawl through new sources to discover information that has suddenly risen to the top of your list of things to be investigated. In light of this, today is ideal for carrying out research projects. With the influence of Mercury, your thoughts will be flowing easily, as will your ability to communicate your ideas and pass on information with ease. Along with this, any opportunity for networking will be extremely well aspected. The final day of the working week is an ideal time to reflect to identify what you have achieved but also to determine your priorities for next week. This will enable you to know that you can leave this week behind, be prepared for next week but, more importantly, you will be free to relax and make the most of the weekend.
The weekend begins on a very positive note with the Moon and Jupiter coming together in a sextile angle, leading to the opening of opportunities for you. This is a time to be aware that opportunities can arrive in many forms so you will need to be observant, otherwise they may well pass you by. Additionally, you have free will to choose whether or not to take up what is on offer. Jupiter is the planet that brings offerings to enable you to grow, it also brings generosity and abundance to you. Other areas that fall under the influence of this planet include higher learning and religion/belief systems. Jupiter is concerned with expansion, whether that is generating wealth or products that are connected with the home and family. You may well find your horizons open up for you and your family and could well involve increased opportunities to travel, more for pleasure than business reasons. Again, this is the influence of Jupiter with his concerns around having adventures and foreign travel. It is probable that you will find yourself planning a family trip to somewhere new and exciting.
The weekend positivity continues into the final day of your week and is lead by the Moon and Venus coming together in a sextile formation that enables both planets to work cooperatively. This combination gives a wonderful indication for a successful and happy committed relationship and family life. A special note for the men who read this is that you will find it almost like second-nature to empathise with the females in your life. The reason behind this is very likely grounded in your formative years when experiences at that time opened up an ability to relate to women and to be more in touch with your emotions. Not forgetting the women who read this, this transit will help you to be more graceful, good-natured and more focused on the domestic setting. This extends to make women more attentive and concerned about the men in their lives, particularly their partners.
