As of Friday, Venus in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries for the third and final time since September. This transit has been largely responsible for keeping the high stress and roller coaster going strong, especially regarding money matters, contracts (karmic and actual), emotions, and key relationships. This last pass jettisons Venus, the evaluation and survival archetype, over a critical threshold and on to a next-implementation phase.
There is one more week of Mercury retrograde to go. As of early Saturday morning, Mercury backs into Scorpio. It will finish the retrograde cycle next Thursday in this sign and leave Scorpio altogether the following week. The transit extends bargain-shopping opportunities. Scoop it up while the Mercury getting is good. On another note, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio can keep you digging through some deep, perhaps painful, emotions, in search of answers and solutions that are still hidden from full view.
While Mercury retrograde is working the back end, Venus, leaving Libra for Scorpio on Sunday morning, will now work the front end of this sign.
Sunday’s Sun/Mars is mobilizing. We’ll feel this in a push-past-it, tension-diffusing, or ease-up kind of way. Look beyond the immediacy of today’s pain or conflict and pin your hope and aspirations on the potentials that lie ahead. Monday/Tuesday can be lucrative and/or enjoyable. Spending comes easily too. Favouring creativity, volunteering, performances, musical events, romance, and the spiritual side of life, Neptune takes the reins as of Wednesday.
Happy Hanukkah to all who are celebrating.
March 20 - April 19
Things can change; minds can change; people can too. Follow instinct and impulse; timing is everything. An inspired moment, a surprise breakthrough could kick-start something pleasing or lucrative. Friday can produce a breakthrough with someone or something. You could strike flint on a good creative idea or moneymaker. Over this next week, you’ll gain a better feel for how to play it.
April 20 - May 20
It’s time to resurface, revisit the conversation, get back in the game, or give it another try. Don’t assume you’ll meet up with more of the same. Folks can have a change of heart or mind; you can too. Friday, social and/or spontaneous hits it right. Sunday, aim to let off steam in a healthy way. Wednesday onward, ease up; go with the flow.
May 21 - June 21
It may be the end of the week, but social and spending stars are on the gear-up. You should have no problem getting the party started Friday night. The weekend keeps you busy with one thing after another. Sunday/Monday, pick your battles and ease up on expectations, plans, or rules; follow your instincts. Tuesday onward, you can be easily swayed or sold.
June 21 - July 22
Whew! It’s the end of the month and you are still standing (even though you’d say barely so). Unwind Friday night with something social or with something different than your usual choice for entertainment. Saturday through Tuesday, you should find yourself on an upswing. Helping you to stand in your power better, Venus and Mercury retrograde freshly into Scorpio loan you more personal effectiveness.
July 22 - August 22
Too much to do? Added pressure is a given at this time of year, but Uranus/Venus will help you to get it out of the way and move on to other things, perhaps faster than you anticipate. Something unplanned does the trick quite nicely Friday night. The stars keep you on a roll through Tuesday. Wednesday onward, you are especially soft around the edges.
August 22 - September 23
You’ve got it going on Thursday/Friday. The moon in Virgo and Uranus puts you on go in some spontaneous or unexpected way. Trust your instincts and your ability to read people and situations. Reviving your social life and increasing your decision-making smarts, Mercury retrograde and Venus in Scorpio put you back in the game in some switch-track way. Monday/Tuesday, you stand to gain.
September 22 - October 23
In the works since September, Friday night sees Venus on a breakthrough with Uranus. You can feel it as finally surpassing a creative block or a roadblock regarding a contract, personal issue, relationship, or money matter. As of the weekend Mercury retrograde and Venus into Scorpio gift you with more resourcefulness, better sway, swagger, and staying power. Get your sexy on!
October 23 - November 21
Immediately following the end of the month, you are onto the next item on the list, pronto-quick. Friday through Monday keeps you going strong with one thing after another. Ending retrograde next Thursday, Mercury’s backtrack into Scorpio and Venus on a fresh trek through your sign gift you with extra fuel, great incentive, sway, and savvy. Monday/Tuesday, you’re hot stuff.
November 21 - December 21
Venus/Uranus can let you off the hook and/or get something unexpected off the ground Thursday/Friday. A great idea, good price, sudden whim, or instinct is worth acting on, especially through Tuesday. Mercury retrograde backs out of Sagittarius on Saturday, but it will be back by midmonth. By all means, take a hiatus from the world and the holiday overload; reprioritize and regroup.
December 21 - January 19
Are they holding you to high expectations or are you putting yourself under too much pressure? Perhaps it is a bit of both. Have you reached your spending or tolerance limit? Let yourself off the hook Friday night. Enjoy. Saturday through Tuesday, you’ll have good executive control. Wednesday onward, go easy on it and yourself.
January 20 - February 18
Never enough time; never enough money—don’t let it stop you from having a good time Friday night! Venus/Uranus can spark a good idea, a great conversation, an impulse purchase, or a spontaneous get-together. Venus and Mercury retrograde on sign changes help you to get a better fix on it or them. Tuesday onward, guard your health; ease up.
February 18 - March 20
For the past couple of months, Venus has been in a challenging position with Uranus. Likely, you have felt it as an emotional or financial roller coaster. As of Friday evening, Venus hits a breakthrough point. Saturday/Sunday, Venus and Mercury retrograde move into Scorpio, an empowering and confidence-boosting influence. Make the most of it through Tuesday.More
