The sun, the life giver of our solar system, is at its closest proximity to the Earth right now. Travelling through the sign of Capricorn, the sun gives life to all matters to do with control, duty, responsibility, priorities, and legitimacy. Capricorn is a builder archetype. It also holds jurisdiction over time, limits, boundaries, and borders.
The sun’s alignment with Pluto on Friday compels us to reformat in no uncertain terms. Sun/Pluto exerts added pressure to get it under better control. Hidden or obvious forces may be at work. Either way, there’s no choice but to get with the program.
The big push coincides well with the end of Mercury retrograde on Sunday. Monday is mobilizing in more ways than one. The Gemini moon can keep us talking, guessing, or questioning. Keep the conversation, the plan, or the day’s schedule open-ended. Spontaneity plays it best.
With some added push/pull to get through, Tuesday can bring accomplishment and completion. Then again, the day could force your hand, perhaps abruptly, or surprisingly so. The moon in tension to Saturn and Mercury could cause a conflict with authority, reality, or the truth. Face facts, have the talk, tackle the hard stuff, work it out, get it done. Assistance from sun/Uranus and Mars/Pluto can spark a creative solution, a fresh insight, a sudden breakthrough, or a springboard.
Parked in the middle of an intense and emotionally charged few days, Wednesday holds the best prospects of the week. The Cancer moon forms mainly harmonious contacts. Feel it; express yourself; nurture; protect; caretake; soak it up. Sun/Jupiter ends the day on a major upswing.
March 20 - April 20
Endings and beginnings are intertwined. A new reality is setting into place, and as it does, it sets the future on an accelerated course. Friday through next Thursday’s full moon hits the message home in some striking, perhaps momentous way. Monday/Tuesday could see you make a breakthrough or set yourself free. Wednesday/Thursday turns the potential or hoped-for into an actuality. It’s an emotional journey!
April 20 - May 21
You don’t have to wait for Mercury retrograde to complete. Friday/Saturday are optimal; take the initiative, put it into drive. Monday/Tuesday, consider all options, talk it out, switch tracks as the moment dictates. Plan B or a revisit could do the trick. There can be pain or loss before gain but don’t let it stop you. Wednesday/Thursday can be lucrative, rewarding, or heartwarming.
May 21 - June 21
Thursday/Friday, the time is right. Take charge; make it official; set a new precedent; renew with the bank or your significant other. If you want to see better results, a deeper commitment is required. Sunday/Monday, the Gemini moon puts you on a fresh battery charge. Tuesday through Thursday, you’ll hit full steam ahead. It’s a big week for money matters and the heart.
June 21 - July 22
Outside forces can put you under significant pressure. Sun/Pluto moves you through a block, hurdle, or holdup. Next Tuesday through Thursday completes the process, program, or setup phase. It’s up to you to take the initiative, to hold yourself accountable, to establish a better system, reputation, or game plan. Reality hits full-on; it comes with a major payoff for your applied effort.
July 22 - August 23
Getting it under better control is to your great benefit. Whether through necessity or simply a realization, Thursday/Friday the sun/Pluto alignment helps you to do just that. Finish off what you can. The end of Mercury retrograde on Sunday, and the sun in action with Uranus on Tuesday, Jupiter on Wednesday, and the full moon on Thursday, make for a full-throttle, big week ahead.
August 23 - September 23
The end of the week is accompanied by a sense of accomplishment and/or of leaving the past behind in some major way. You’ll feel that you’ve made the right choice or that you’ve now reached your time-has-come moment. Sunday/Monday gets you thinking along new lines. Tuesday through full-moon Thursday is informing, opportune, instigating, boosting, and freeing.
September 23 - October 23
The sun/Pluto conjunction and the end of Mercury retrograde officially signal that a time has come for endings and for laying a new foundation. A new home, family, and living-with-yourself chapter begins now. Friday/Saturday are ideal for real-estate transactions, business deals, renovations, or official family undertakings. Monday through next Thursday fast-tracks the process and thrusts something new/more at you.
October 23 - November 22
Friday/Saturday, aim to finish it off, sign papers, complete a transaction, and/or make it official. Sun/Pluto can get you approved for a loan or lease. A serious talk or meet-up with an adviser or official can be quite productive too. One way or another, Monday through full-moon Thursday opens the floodgate and/or puts you on the move in a major way.
November 22 - December 21
Mercury has just dipped back into Sagittarius but it won’t visit for long. By Sunday, it will complete retrograde; by next Thursday’s full moon, it will move on. Along with the sun’s revitalizing force, Friday through next Saturday provides a major window of opportunity. Say it; create it; instigate it; rev it up; take flight; get a move on. Tuesday/Wednesday are game-changer days.
December 21 - January 20
Motivation reaches peak on Friday/Saturday. Revamp a little or aim for a complete overhaul. Optimize while good timing is on your side and the fire is in your belly. Aim for maximum impact. Be a force to reckon with. Throw your weight around or force yourself to get a move on. You’ll accomplish more, faster, and better now.
January 20 - February 18
It’s time to catch a plane, a train, an airwave, or to hit the ground running in some other big way. Along with the sun on a major move-it-forward, the end of Mercury retrograde on Saturday gives the green light for all fresh initiatives. With some added challenge Monday to Wednesday, it’s all systems go, perhaps surprisingly so.
February 18 - March 20
Stay driven; aim high; plan to go the distance. A new personal goal, career, or lifestyle trajectory is particularly well timed. Sunday through Tuesday, there can be twists, turns, push, pull, or an air-clearing. By Wednesday, you’ll have a better feel for what to say or do and where to take it. Emotions run the show/the gamut.
