After two weeks away for my wedding, I am happy to return to providing you with the weekly horoscopes. The week kicks off with a busy Monday as Mercury opposes Uranus, and the Sun makes a square to Saturn. These uncomfortable aspects make it difficult to feel motivated as delays and unusual conversations are promised. Shocking announcements are also possible now.
On Tuesday Venus moves out of balanced Libra into intense Scorpio. This is a deeply passionate position and relationships of all types will intensify. The darker sides of our sexuality will begin to surface, and exploration into taboo subjects is also possible. Venus in Scorpio is also described as the combination of intense closeness, bringing the need to join with partners physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Individuals who are single may find that this is the perfect time to initiate new and magnetic relationships.
Over the weekend Venus opposes Uranus brining fated encounters and unusual individuals into our lives. Cooperation may be difficult right now, as everyone seems to feel the need to be their own individual. Save any group activities for a later date to avoid certain drama. Financial instability is also promised this weekend, and bank accounts should be monitored closely for errors.
This week’s homework assignment focuses on the Full Moon in Aries on Sunday the 13th. In the cardinal fire sign this is an excellent Moon to reclaim your identity and embrace self-confidence. Spend time this week making a list of everything you love about yourself, as well as your accomplishments. As the Moon grows to full illumination you will be able to finally shake away insecurities and find confidence to address fears.

Relationships at work may be strained early in the week, as you may find yourself at odds with a supervisor. Do your best to remain as level headed as possible, to avoid rash action you are sometimes known for. Tuesday brings the potential to meet an exciting new friend who will share your unusual interests. As Venus moves into your 8th house you can expect feel a surge of sexual desire, as you prepare for the proverbial “bump of crop” in the bedroom. Saturday’s opposition between Venus and Uranus brings a surprise bill, so be sure not to overspend during the first half of the week.

As Venus moves into your house of relationships you are empowered with the ability to attract others who compliment your personality.

Leo (21 July — 20 August)
Your home and work life balance may be a bit rocky early in the week, and it will be difficult to find the perfect rhythm right now. It would be best to air on the side of caution and if you must be imbalanced; spend more time at work. You don’t want to draw any negative attention to yourself right now. As Venus moves into your 4th house, expect your home life to experience a surge of harmony. However, it will come at a price. Sometimes conflict is necessary to find peace. Embrace healthy conflict to avoid explosive situations.
Virgo (21 August — 20 September)
Mental activity keeps your brain busy this week, and it may be difficult for you to quiet your mind. In order to help combat racing thoughts, try stimulating your imagination with a good book. This will help keep your mind active, while not allowing it to run wild. A financial obstacle presents itself early in the week, however it is not as serious as you may fear. Allow the minor hiccup to play out, and trust that the Universe has a larger plan for your financial future. As Venus moves into your 3rd house expect the opportunity to mediate conflicts for others during the next few weeks. These activities will also help keep your mind busy, but certainly don’t go looking for problems to fix.

Financial challenges come to a head this week Libra, as you look for creative ways to balance your budget. There is no shame in asking for help, and you may want to reach out to friend or relative to help put yourself on a healthy spending path. Your ruling planet changes signs this week, and as Venus moves into Scorpio you may find it difficult to stop yourself from impulse purchases. It would be best to think about any purchases for 24hrs before making the final transaction. Over the weekend, an overwhelming urge to hibernate washes over your consciousness. Try not to hide from the world too much, and stay busy if possible. This will help shake off the blues you have been feeling over the last month.
Scorpio (21 October — 20 November)
I have always considered Scorpio to be the secret keeper of the zodiac, and this week you will be flooded with the private thoughts of others. It will be your job to listen, but not give advice, no matter how passionately you feel about being able to solve the problems of others. Venus moves into your sign this week, which represents a time when you are at your most attractive.

Over the weekend this energy is intensified, and you may find it difficult to ignore the romantic and sexual advances of others.

Expect the opportunity to express affection in secret, or even uncover a secret admirer.
