Get ready for the intensity of your life to ratchet up another notch on Monday afternoon when Mercury enters Scorpio. For the next three weeks, our thoughts will tend to turn towards all things hidden. This can mean that we feel the urge to dig into a good mystery or research project, but it can also mean we become obsessed with the secrets we have worked so hard to bury – even from ourselves. If you’ve been repressing things, especially emotions, prepare for them to make their way to the light of day in one form or another. Communications get a bit complicated during this time as well, as sarcasm and the double entendre are common under Scorpio’s influence. We can also find ourselves brooding over things others have said to us, weighing whether or not there were hidden meanings implied in their words. Scorpio does, indeed, foster a bit of obsessive-compulsive behavior. Do your best, during this time, to funnel that energy into positive activities, like fighting for a just cause or revealing an important truth.
It’s best to avoid romantic entanglements on Tuesday evening, when Venus in Sagittarius is square to Neptune in Pisces. The likelihood of deception, fraud, or even something worse, from a lover is very high under this aspect, and Neptune’s involvement will have you so blinded you won’t even see it coming. This is definitely not the night for starting a relationship or engaging in a one-night stand, as the outcome is very likely to leave you victimized. Best to play it safe and go solo or, at most, spend the evening with those tried and true friends you know have your back.
Wednesday is a better one for matters of the heart and the wallet when Venus in Sagittarius is sextile to Jupiter in Libra. Relationships are on much better footing, and it is time to let your loved ones know how you feel about them. Instead of an expensive and flashy display of your feelings, though, this aspect encourages you to use your artistic talents and creativity to express your heart.
The Sun and Mercury pair up in Scorpio around midday on Thursday. Thoughts are likely to be obsessively stuck on a single track, and tongues are likely to be sharper than a cat-o-nine-tails. Tempers are almost guaranteed to ignite. Even gentle words of criticism, today, are likely to cause hurt feelings and grudges. This is a good day to try to keep your head down to avoid confrontations, and to keep your opinions under lock and key.
Friday morning sees the Moon and Jupiter move into conjunction in Libra, making it likely to be a friendly and social day. Look for people who may make good allies for your creative goals. Let your talents speak for themselves, as they will impress more than the hard sell. These new partners may be able to open new opportunities for you in the future.
Just after midnight on Saturday morning, Mars in Capricorn squares off against Uranus in Aries. This is an aspect that is likely to have us headstrong and burning to take extreme risks. You may feel as though the only way to truly be alive is to live on the razor’s edge. So, I say this to you now, before this restless mood takes hold: Don’t. Under this aspect, things tend to be unpredictable, and risks taken are likely to be regretted. While it may seem like your happiness is dependent on you taking that flying leap today, by tomorrow, that feeling will have passed. You could see it pass with you in traction, or with you ready to take on new opportunities. Saturday evening brings Venus and Saturn into conjunction in Sagittarius. This pairing will work as a sobering draught after this morning’s burning need for risk and adventure. Duty is going to put a restraining hand on your attempts to strike out into undiscovered territory. You could view your obligations to family, friends, and loved ones as a dampening, depressing force, or you could view these relationships as your reward for meeting your obligations. The love they give you is no noose, but maintaining such relationships does require you to be the type of person they can trust and depend on.
The New Moon in Scorpio comes to us on Sunday afternoon. As with all New Moons, this is the time to begin our projects for this Moon Cycle. These projects are likely to be ones that trigger a deeply emotional response from us. This can be a bit of a scary time, too: Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of dramatic transformations. Some even think of Pluto as a planet of “death.” And it is true that Pluto, and Scorpio, can bring us many endings, but these endings are actually just the things that open new beginnings and opportunities for better things to enter our lives. This can be a time of letting go of the things and patterns that have come to completion and now longer serve us in a meaningful way, allowing us to be able to let new light and life in, once the cycle of transformation reaches completion. This can be a bit frightening, as all change is, but it is, ultimately, about growth and renewal. Good things will come.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
