Thursday, emotions cover the gamut. If dealings with the public or the onslaught starts getting to you, know that as the day progresses, the stars do too.
Putting on a good show for the weekend, the moon moves into sunny Leo on Friday. Saturday is the peak of the weekend for getting your kicks out of gifting and getting. Whatever you get up to, you should feel it is a good time and well timed.
Sunday’s Virgo moon should put the day to good use, but if it doesn’t, there’s a reason for it.
In the wee hours of Monday, Mars enters Pisces. This happens shortly before Mercury in Capricorn begins retrograde. Sleep patterns or dream cycles can be affected. Keep plans, talks, or schedule loose. Sunday/Monday, something can be lost; activities can be derailed by the unforeseen. What was picking up steam can dissolve, disintegrate, or give way to something more urgent or more inspiring and timely. What is cleared away or shows up can be to the plus.
Continuing through January, Mars in Pisces keeps romance, spirituality, openheartedness, and compassion on the front burner. It can also create more susceptibility to others, to our own imagination, to emotional currents, to collective trends, and to viruses and such.
Ideally timed for the holidays and extending through the first week of January, Mercury retrograde in Capricorn takes us through a shift of priorities. The cycle serves to break down walls, barriers, resistance, justifications, or rationales. To what end? In order to build it better. Take time, make time, use time—make it count. Quality over quantity is where it’s at.
March 20 - April 20
Thursday, emotions can hit a sharp edge. Once it goes snap or the light bulb flashes, you’re onto an upswing. Saturday is your best, most fun and rewarding of the weekend, although Sunday will work well for you too. Monday, something of significance releases or gives way. Let it go, loosen your grip, forgo “should”, surrender to the process and the day.
April 20 - May 21
Emotions run the show Thursday. Go by feel but try not to react or to jump to a hasty conclusion or decision. Friday through Sunday is mostly smooth going. Have fun at it. Monday, you can easily lose your focus. If plans or good intentions falter, simply go with the flow and move on to something else. Don’t force a thing.
May 21 - June 21
Thursday could be something of a pressure cooker or a budget breaker. Work your way through one thing and one step at a time and you’ll get past it in a flash. Friday/Saturday replenishes and revitalizes you. Socialize; have fun. Sunday, catch up and clean up. Monday, have no expectations; keep it simple. As is typical of Mercury retrograde, someone could let you down; plans change.
June 21 - July 22
You could feel hit from all sides on Thursday. When stymied or undecided, try something outside of your usual, but don’t go extreme. Friday/Saturday, creativity and a more confident sense of how to play it set you up for reward. Sunday is good for a catch-up with folks and for picking up your own slack. Monday’s stars can alleviate some pressure, at least temporarily.
July 22 - August 23
You’ll feel it more than you show on Thursday, but you may not be able to keep a lid on it. On the other hand, once it’s out in the open, it’s practically solved. Refuelling you in all the best ways, the moon treks into Leo on Friday, but aim for Saturday for the finest the weekend has to offer.
August 23 - September 23
Saturday is your best day for getting your to-do list out of the way. Sunday, the moon in Virgo can also keep you on a productive upswing, but it is the day before Mercury begins retrograde, so don’t stick to a tight agenda and go with the moment. The same advice covers the first half of the new week. Wednesday gets you over the hump.
September 23 - October 23
You’ll pick up the pace quite well on Friday/Saturday. They are your best days to engage, create, and enjoy. Sunday/Monday is best suited to clearing it away. Although Mars into Pisces and the start of Mercury retrograde on Monday can find you less clear, less efficient, more exposed, more susceptible, it’s only temporary. You should find that by Tuesday/Wednesday, you’re already on a bounce-back.
October 23 - November 22
Take charge; do it your way; make the most of it Friday/Saturday. If you like it, they’ll like it too. Sunday/Monday, there’s lots of bits and pieces to get at. You can’t be too careful when Mercury begins retrograde. Double-check everything. Coinciding beautifully with the upcoming holidays, Mars in Pisces is one of your best transits, especially for affairs of the heart.
November 22 - December 21
Thursday, there’s stuff to work through. You may not be able to keep a tight lid on finances, work, or emotions, but once you’ve surpassed it, you’re a happy camper again. Friday/Saturday, you’ll get the show on the road very well. Sunday/Monday, take it as it comes. You are sure to feel a significant momentum shift as Mars treks into Pisces and Mercury retrograde begins.
December 21 - January 20
Perseverance nets the payoff Thursday. Friday through Sunday runs a lot easier on you. Your wallet could get a better-than-average workout, but for the most part it’s fun. Saturday evening is your best for laughs or love. Mercury goes retrograde in Capricorn. Stop letting “should” or guilt run the show. Ease up. Reprioritize.
January 20 - February 18
Despite the traffic and crowds, Friday/Saturday keeps your spirits bright. Shopping, sharing—yes, you’re well entertained. A special someone or a special event can be the highlight of your weekend. Sunday/Monday, the little things add up, to the plus or minus. You’ll notice Mars exiting Aquarius more than Mercury’s turn to retrograde. Go with the flow!
February 18 - March 20
Watch for unexpected pro-gress or a great brainstorm on Thursday. Friday/Saturday, the work can feel somewhat like play. Play can include a bit of work, too, but overall it’s a delightful, cash-in weekend. Mars into Pisces is good for fresh energy and an enthusiasm boost. Monday’s Mercury retrograde can redirect you or your day. It leads to advantage or improvement.
