A busy week ahead is promised with a number of major aspects in play. A conjunction between the Sun and Mars kick starts the week with a boost of ambitious energy. However, there is an aggressive side to this aspect, which can produce over-confidence, and competitive tendencies. Also on Monday, Venus will make a square to Jupiter making it easy to throw caution to the wind. Staying focused right now, will make the rest of the week flow smoothly.
Tuesday brings two conjunctions. The first will be between Mercury and Mars, and the second between the Sun and Mercury. Intense conversations are promised today, and a number of arguments will test the patience couples have with each other. The rest of the world may be suffering from inflated egos right now, so it will be important to keep an eye for intense debates between public figures.
Wednesday brings an opposition between Venus and Neptune, shortly followed by a trine between Mercury and Saturn. As the world recoups from Tuesday’s exhausting activities, pleasant moods return. People will be much more cautious with their words, and apologies are likely, as common sense takes hold again.
Friday will be the week’s most active day with a square between Mercury and Jupiter, a trine between the Sun and Saturn, along with a trine between Venus and Pluto. Most of the day will ruled by thinking big. Much of the world will be inspired to make long term plans, vacation reservations, and plan parties. It may not be surprising to see last minute road trips or spontaneous gatherings popping up out of nowhere. This theme continues through the weekend, though break downs in communication may occur on Saturday.
This week’s homework assignment is to ride the way of Sun and Mars energy beginning on Monday to be as productive as possible. Many astrologers lovingly call this aspect the “superhero combination”. If harnessed, there isn’t anything that cannot be accomplished, and the impossible becomes possible. However, if this energy is ignored, the square between Venus and Jupiter will take hold, leading to a week of missed opportunities, and possible trouble with family or an employer over lazy indulgences.
