Mercury retrograde: done, check. Full moon in Pisces: done, check. If good intentions have been waylaid for the start of the back-to-it routine, take heart. Expect to hit a better, faster forward as of Thursday.
Still acting as a trigger for last month’s solar eclipse, Mercury, finishing up in Leo through Saturday, infuses the here and now with better-than-average creative potency. Once it is launched, undertaken, or expressed, expect it to have a significant life force and to carry you the distance.
Building to Saturday, the sun’s trine to Pluto keeps desire and motivation in ample supply. Together, they’ll help you to build it better and/or to get it under better control.
Last Tuesday, the same day that Mercury retrograde ended, Mars exited Leo for Virgo. Mercury treks into this industrious sign as of Saturday evening. Teaming up with the Virgo sun, Mars and Mercury support all repair work, upgrade and improvement projects, and healing mandates. Make sure to put self at the top of that list. When operating at peak, efficiency expert Mercury in Virgo has a talent for putting the mind to useful tasks, while energy expert Mars in Virgo works on the muscle end. Venus, continuing in Leo, keeps the heart beating at centre stage. Combined, they are working all the angles.
Holding court over the coming week, Venus in Leo trines Saturn on Tuesday, and sun/Saturn turn a corner on Wednesday. Combined, they are constructive and shaping. They’ll support all efforts to solidify, establish, secure, and mobilize.
Accomplishment is a simple equation: get at it now and gain.
March 20 - April 20
Feeling especially motivated, energized, and/or peaked? Aim to make the most of it Thursday/Friday; look to Mercury, now out of retrograde, and the Aries moon to keep you lit up and going strong. Mars is onto task in Virgo, and as of late Saturday, Mercury gets there too. Venus and Saturn keep the coming week moving along a productive track.
April 20 - May 21
Thursday/Friday, set it into motion. You’ll gain better-than-average traction. In fact, you should find action-taking flows easily and naturally. The sun, Mars, and now Mercury in Virgo now set you onto an especially fruitful and success-generating track. Waste not, want not. Along with Venus on a roll, the next 10 days are optimized for go, get, and gain.
May 21 - June 21
You’ll have no trouble stoking a good fire and/or keeping the conversation going, especially through Saturday. Once Mercury joins the sun and Mars in Virgo, the spotlight turns to what’s missing and what needs to be tackled or healed. Take it one step at a time. Try not to let it get overly complicated. Stay practical, aim for efficiency, and simplify where you can.
June 21 - July 22
Dive into it fresh Thursday/Friday. Take a new attitude with you. All it takes is for one good one to launch you on your way and/or to set you onto a major turnaround. Roll up your sleeves and get at it. The next 10 days or so can prove to be the most opportune and advancing of the month.
July 22 - August 23
Mars has just left Leo, but you’ll have a good handle on Mercury’s gift package through Saturday, and on Venus through September 19. Through Saturday, it comes easily, readily, and naturally. Mars and Mercury in Virgo can put you to work, but they also help you to make better use of your time and money. They’ll keep on you until the job is done right.
August 23 - September 23
Now that the full moon is out of the way, you should find yourself on a significant bounce back and energy boost. What’s most expedient or appropriate will become obvious. Look to Mars and Mercury in Virgo to thrust you onto fullsteam ahead. They’ll cut to the chase with better clarity, too. By next weekend, you’ll have sorted out plenty.
September 23 - October 23
Thursday/Friday, Mercury keeps it/you going strong. Perhaps there’s something special to celebrate or someone special on your radar? Saturday is good for making the most of it too. While Venus in Leo continues to boost matters of heart and wallet, the sun, Mercury, and Mars in Virgo call attention to the work that needs to be done. Stay confident; keep expectations real.
October 23 - November 22
Take aim wherever you like. It won’t take much for you to make a success out of it, especially Thursday through Saturday. Mercury leaves Leo on Saturday evening, but it will keep you busier and give you even more to do while it tours Virgo. Tuesday/Wednesday are ideal for money talks, banking, getting it under better control, contract negotiations, or official undertakings.
November 22 - December 21
At your best and making the most of it, a grand trine in fire gifts you Thursday to Saturday morning. Mercury leaves Leo for Virgo late Saturday, but you still have a few more weeks of Venus in Leo gracing your chart and your heart. The dynamic concentration of planets in both signs sets up a successful run over this next week.
December 21 - January 20
Last weekend through next weekend can take you through an important process, negotiation, transition, planning, or implementation phase. The next 10 days set up the most lucrative portion of the month to get it sorted out and to achieve your desired results. Take your best shot. Thursday to Saturday and next Tuesday, your stars are optimized.
January 20 - February 18
Something special on the go? Someone special to spend time with? Mercury continues to keep the creative, social, and romantic spark well lit through Saturday. Enjoy, but also keep an eye on practicality and budgets. Mercury in Virgo, starting late Saturday, sharpens your perception, intuition, and negotiating skills. Play it smart; get a better deal.
February 18 - March 20
Mercury in Leo and the Aries moon make for a great finish to this first week back to the routine. On an extended run with Venus, you can make good on the week ahead, too. Mars and Mercury in Virgo keep you especially busy with clients, the public, a new venture, or a key someone.More
