Travel over the weekend is possible as the conjunction between Mercury and Venus on Friday triggers movement. However, it may be difficult to get away as professional responsibilities seem to be occupying most of your time.
Aquarius (21 January — 20 February)
Secrets rule the first two days of the week Aquarius, and you can’t help but think someone close to you is not being entirely truthful. The good news is that even if someone is being less than honest, it is about their own life and does not affect you. However, your natural curiosity makes it difficult for you to let it go. If you are determined to press this person, do so on Friday when you will be able to more easily persuade them to share their secret. Over the weekend educational work is promised, and even if you’re not enrolled in higher education you will still need to do a fair amount of research.
Pisces (21 February —20 March)
The first two days of the week may feel a bit overwhelming, as you are beginning to feel as though you are racing the clock towards a project or event. To make matters worse, you may be feeling too lethargic to tackle the large projects you’ve put in front of yourself. Do yourself a favor and rest on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. You’ll be able to get twice the amount of work done if you give yourself a few days to recharge your physical and emotional batteries. Over the weekend Mercury and Venus move into your 8th house, bringing debt and shared financial resources to the forefront of your mind. You may be called to re-budget, catch up on bills, or take out a loan in order to consolidate what you already owe. This may cause a disagreement between you and another person on Saturday. Do your best to see the other person’s point of view, but don’t let them walk all over you.
