The Air Signs
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Get ready for another exciting week as the Sun in Libra highlights your current finances, goals and plans. If you’ve experienced delays and frustration in this area, all of this should clear up over the coming week or so. It’s now safe to apply for mortgages, loans, credit cards, and overdrafts without any complications or misunderstandings. You may also feel moved to ask for a pay raise or extra work to help fund future projects. If you can offer a good reason why you should be given either, you may just have a chance of success. Be careful that you don’t criticize yourself and doubt your efforts before you have really begun. Self-doubt and discouragement can sabotage what you’re begun. Try not to be too much of a perfectionist; otherwise, you’ll never get anything done. Mercury turns direct on Tuesday, which means that you’ll be more in touch with your intuition. In its retrograde phase, you tend to doubt those hunches that come to you throughout the day. From this point on you’ll know which feelings you can trust and which to discard. This is especially important in terms of your career. There’s the possibility of lucrative deals if you play your cards right. The Full Moon in Aries takes place in your communication zone. Any issues or misunderstandings that remained unresolved in September may come to a head. It’s best not to get into arguments or make decisions on the spur of the moment if you can help it. You may be in a mood to take more risks than usual over the weekend, especially where your finances are concerned. Mercury aspects Mars over the coming week; an idea may be forming in the back of your mind and you may be wondering whether to go ahead or not. However, there’s also the chance of a lucrative deal that may come out of the blue. Remain alert and grab this opportunity. This is the time to take note of your inspired thoughts and develop a plan that will help you manifest them. There’s going to be a Full Moon on Saturday. Your feelings may be very intense at this time, but try not to overreact. Let the energies settle a bit and wait a couple of days before you make any important decisions.
Your Love Week – Air Signs:
It’s high time you remove your “me, me, me” hat and start noticing the disastrous effect your selfishness is having on your life as a whole. Things feel of balance this week, especially in the realm of love. Stop pretending that everything is OK. If you aren’t generous, it will prove to be a retrospective love lesson, and not necessarily a positive one. Try to look at this situation from her or his perspective and then revisit the relationship. All that’s happened in recent months will rear its head and make you think whether or not you want to continue on. Try to love back, and demonstrate this. Life can be good, so share the wealth. The relationship rewards will far outweigh any inconvenience.
The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Once again your career goals and job are in focus, Fire Signs. The good news is that Mercury turns direct this week, which makes it easier to reach your deadlines and make good progress. Now it’s safe to sign important documents and commit to deals and contracts. Be sure that your finances continue to be in focus. Thankfully, Mercury will turn direct on Tuesday, which means that any delays in this area should soon be sorted out. If you’ve had to wait for issues to be resolved and have felt some frustration about this, you’ll now get the satisfaction you deserve. You’ll also find your talks with bank managers much more fruitful and productive. This is an idea week overall, so if you get a brainwave that really makes you happy and enthusiastic, then go for it. You’re still under pressure, but this phase won’t last too much longer. You’re in the home stretch! Mercury aspects Mars twice over the course of this week, which may coincide with talks and discussions associated with financial deals or perhaps with your bank manager in a bid to raise capital. The cosmos seems to be pushing you to get a move on. This may mean that one plan becomes so completely irresistible that you’ll feel drawn to go for it. There’s a Full Moon in Aries on Saturday, so you’ll now begin to reap the rewards from your creative and entrepreneurial efforts. Saturday marks the start of a fast-paced weekend in which you seem to be ready to take it to the limit. If you’re away on vacation, you’ll have a ball. But wherever you are, don’t let your emotions and the excitement of the moment get the better of you. If you feel emotional about your love life, don’t make any decisions on the spur of the moment. Wait a few days and the anxiety or problem may resolve itself. You may feel a powerful urge to make an impulse purchase on Sunday. Think very carefully about whether or not it’s really necessary. The weekend is highlighted because of the aspect of Mercury and Mars to Uranus. You may be seized by a powerful idea and feel moved to take a risk in order to follow it through. Make sure you calculate the odds before you go ahead.
Your Love Week – Fire Signs:
It’s time to make that call, because your happiness depends on it. She or he has been thinking of you continuously and wants to know that you feel the same way—and you do! Have fun this week. You’re ravenous for love! Go with your gut instinct; passion will abound! This will happen only if you make sure not to avoid the inevitable. Fear not; she or he will feel it, too. Enjoy the rapture! The surge of love will most certainly lighten your spirits and alleviate all of that unwanted stress. Come back to earth! It must be awfully tiring floating around in a soap bubble. The world has a lot of sharp edges! Today, think before you go off into Never, Never Land.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Time to smooth some ruffled feathers, Water Signs. You may have been through a period of difficulty in your relationships over the past few months, including both those of a business or romantic nature. Mercury turns direct on Tuesday, which will help overcome any misunderstandings and encourage you to find a resolution to ongoing issues. It will be easier to discuss matters in such a way that the outcome benefits everyone. There’s been a lot happening in your social life recently, which has encouraged you to change the kind of people you hang out with. You love your old friends, but the new friends you’re making have that special something and you can’t help going back for more. However, any misunderstandings that have arisen should be cleared away over the coming days and weeks. Your friends may have a number of suggestions that will encourage you to explore new ideas, cultures, and philosophies. It may be because of one conversation that you decide to explore a new set of beliefs while discarding those that no longer work for you. There’s also the possibility of travel to an exciting destination with friends. Mercury will also aspect Mars twice over the coming week, which may coincide with a new love affair that gets off to a passionate start. The attraction between both of you may be intellectual at first, but this will soon change to something much more physical. The Full Moon in Aries on Saturday brings a powerful urge to go shopping, and enjoy a little retail therapy, but try not to max out your credit cards at the same time. It also may bring up some health issues. Any symptoms you have at this time could be caused by stress, although you’ll need to get them checked by your health professional. If you’re feeling very emotional about issues at work, don’t make any decisions on the spur of the moment. Wait until everything has calmed down and you can see the situation much more clearly. On Sunday, you may want to take a risk by dating someone with whom you feel a powerful chemistry, but perhaps little else. The relationship could be a turning point in your life, leading to some exciting experiences and opportunities. On the other hand, it may flare up and die down just as quickly. It helps to listen to your heart.
Your Love Week – Water Signs:
This week is a passage into a new and clearer understanding for the two of you. Ultimately, this week will help you. Don’t fight or deny the truth. It will set you free and leave you more open to love from that other admirer—the one you’ve been avoiding strictly for the sake of someone’s feelings. Get ready to move to the next level of this relationship. The keyword here is fun. Relish it and pass it on! Your lover admires this most in you and cherishes downtime with you. Remember that the next time you’re arguing over petty things, such as whether or not to go out to a movie or stay in. Guess what? That “someone” couldn’t care less, so be honest and open. You can’t hide under your rock. The Universe won’t allow it.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
If you’ve been doing a lot of traveling recently, you’ll be glad to know that Mercury turns direct this week. This should put an end to any delays you’ve had to endure. This is very much an idea week, so take the time to get feedback from business colleagues, lovers, or friends. The more you’re willing to share your thoughts, the more it will help you find your focus. Once again there seems to be a lot happening with Earth Signs. You can now go ahead with all kinds of projects that have been delayed for one reason or another. Mercury also makes some interesting aspects that dominate the astrology for this week. This means that ideas will be plentiful. The more you’re willing to network and socialize, the more chance you’ll have of finding the answers to your problems. From Wednesday on, it’s safe to start legal proceedings, sign documents, and commit to projects and contracts. Mars brings you a very real chance to make new connections and move in new circles. Mercury aspects Mars twice over this week, which suggests that you may be trying out an idea for size. You’ll also be referring to others for feedback and support. The weekend is great for all kinds of meetings and discussions, as you’ll be able to come up with answers to some of your most pressing problems. A Full Moon in Aries takes place on Saturday. This may bring a lot of feelings to the surface. It isn’t only you who will be feeling emotional; other members of your family will be responding to the Full Moon energies, too. This may bring up a lot of emotion around your financial situation, so don’t do anything on the spur of the moment that you may regret. Try not to get into arguments or do anything on the spur of the moment that you might regret later. Wait a few days if you have to make any decisions. Both Mercury and Mars aspect Uranus over the weekend and you may find yourself very excited about the possibility of a new course of action. You may want to rush headlong into the next phase. Be careful if you’re taking a risk on Sunday and think about what’s involved before you make a move of any kind.
Your Love Week – Earth Signs:
Things seem harmonious this week, but they aren’t, especially in the eyes of the object of your affections. So take a deep breath, sit back, relax, and rethink this situation. Do you feel like you need to replenish your soul after last week? Can you hear that crackling and crunching? That’s the sound of your immune system needing to rekindle after some work stress. Perhaps a massage, pedicure, or facial would be perfect. Bring your honey. It’s the perfect week for self-indulgence of the healthy variety. The passion can return if you just go with the flow. There’s only one way to bring back the zing—consistently—in your love life. Get over yourself and communicate.
