Several oppositions and a sign change bring relatively minor changes this week.Oppositions are interesting creatures. The signs/planets on each side seem to have their own individual agendas, however underlying their separation is common ground. They’re two sides of the same coin. It’s common for us to think about oppositions in a negative way, but the polarization happened at some point from a single energy. Which means the solutions can be found when we recognize and remember where the similarities are, blend with them, and integrate the differences.
This is what this week is about. Where have you allowed yourself to be super critical of a situation that could be a fantastic collaboration? In what way are you depriving yourself of joy by holding a grudge or anger toward another who was in reality, just trying to acheive their own sense of security, or financial gain, or protecting themselves (as in a relationship)- same as you were.
Now that’s not to say oppositions are easy, but if we’re to grow spiritually, finding that midpoint is key. Otherwise, we stay polarized and paralyzed by our thoughts.
As Mercury changes signs into Virgo on Wednesday, we can detach a bit more to consider all the possibilities. The weekend’s Scorpio Moon t-square to Saturn and Uranus is as tense as it gets. Stay in your lane and find some solo projects to work on or spend time enjoying a podcast or a good summer read to stay relaxed.
Have a wonderful week!
Aries (March 21-April 20) This week is all about collaboration. For the most part (that’s key) you’ll find people want to work with you to reach a compromise. But remember that “midpoint” I mentioned up there. Other situations may need a bit of verbal finesse in order to find that midpoint, that area of shared interest or commonality. You’re headstrong, Aries- you can do it. And everyone will gain from your efforts.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) “I’ll think about that stuff later.” Sound familiar? Ignoring the call of your physical body could lead to a bigger problem so be aware when you’re pushing yourself too hard. Eating right and taking time to recharge need to be priority- even with a hectic schedule. Take the little steps you know you need to take now toward better habits, so that you don’t need to take the bigger, harder steps to correct things later.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) While you may feel like you lead two lives (and being a Gemini, you can handle it just fine), both sides merge this week in a fascinating way. Rather than trying to judge your reaction to whatever’s going on, try just observing and watching it unfold. Trust yourself when you get an inkling to do something that feels right. Letting everyone see all sides of you has its benefits.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) It’s tempting to peer over the neighbor’s fence (not literally), but you might see more than you want to and get dragged into a story, and you haven’t got time (or energy) for that right now. Look around at your own stuff- there’s plenty to do. Fix up your own home first. When it comes to issues close to home, lay low. Taking sides won’t work now, so tread lightly and be diplomatic.
Leo (July 23-August 22) While early in the week seems like a breeze in the workplace, the latter half gets a little sticky when upper management holds their ground and stifles one of your typically brilliant ideas. Don’t fly off the handle and react. Sometimes the best thing to do is to not do- let it play out. Things are happening behind the scenes that you’re not aware of, so be patient and wait them out.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) As Mercury moves into your sign, your already busy brain craves more. Maybe it’s time to next level a skill or hobby with a master class or a certification. Carve out some time to make it happen. And if money is an issue, don’t let that be a reason to stay stuck. Get creative- have a yard sale, Facebook Marketplace some stuff, put in some extra hours at work. If you want it badly enough, you will find a way.
Libra (September 23-October 22) You’re elected! But you didn’t even run. You could be “voluntold” by a group simply because you show up all the time. There are worse problems to have than being the reliable one everybody turns to. You can say no but consider what’s best for everyone in the long run- especially if it’s related to your children’s education or hobby. If you do accept the challenge, go at a steady pace and don’t run yourself down. Self-care is just as important.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) You definitely want to lay low over the weekend as that Scorpio Moon gets testy with Sun, Saturn and Uranus. Though it’s not your nature, you’ll need to stay somewhat un-involved. Things you’d typically feel like fighting for will resolve quickly so you don’t have to get in the mix- just let karmic justice do her thing. Choose your words carefully and you can find resolution and even receive an apology.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Details and your attention to them will get you a big win on the job. You’re already liked, now wow the boss with something that shows that you truly respect the position you hold. Oh, the opportunity will present itself, don’t worry. You just need to be open to seeing it. And when it does, don’t hesitate- go full throttle. You’ve got all the tools you need in your toolbox so proceed with confidence!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) This week, you’ll be feeling a bit like you’re walking into a strange house blindfolded. You may be presented with a situation that has no clear direction or response. It might be that you need to stumble and feel your way around some more, or it might be that the solution is to wait. Not your favorite thing to do when something is on the table but see if that feels right.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Sniping back and forth at a loved one escalates quickly so be mindful of what the trigger point is for you and seek a more constructive communication. That may mean excusing yourself from the “heated” discussion (aka: fight) and letting the other person know you are not giving up- you’re just stepping away and will return later. It may be easier to think of what you’re really feeling and how to express it when someone’s not right in your face. You are probably just feeling like things aren’t fair but may not know how to ask for the proper help.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Where is your hard-earned money going? Do you really know? May not be the most fun summer-time activity but searching for places where money is slipping through the cracks will be well worth it. For example, those subscriptions you signed up for that you forgot to cancel…or recurring charges that you don’t need to keep paying. Take the time to figure it out and you’ll find some interesting ways to improve your cash flow. You may even find some cash for that summer-time activity that IS tons of fun.
