Monday, shortly before midday, Venus in Gemini is quincunx to Mars in Scorpio. If you’ve been feeling the urge to cheat on your significant other, now is not the time. Staying committed while Venus is in Gemini is more challenging than usual, as we tend to feel there might be something better, or at least more exciting, around the corner. Under this aspect, acting impulsively on sexual urges is guaranteed to get you into dangerously deep waters, and secrets aren’t likely to stay hidden. If the spark has gone out of your relationship, it’s time to have a frank conversation with your partner. A solution to your dilemma can only be reached through open and honest discourse. And, who knows? Your partner might be as eager as you to creatively reignite those fires. You won’t know unless you talk about it.
Late in the afternoon, Neptune begins its annual Retrograde, which will last until mid-November. This is unlike the Retrograde of some other planets, as Neptune’s dreamy and mysterious influence isn’t reversed. It is, instead, intensified and turned inward while the planet moves backward. This is the time of year you are likely to find yourself more lost in your own thoughts. It is a good time to explore your deepest hidden thoughts and desires, as well as to further explore your spiritual, mystical side. One of the down sides is that, for those of us who are used to being front and center, we can now feel ourselves lost in the crowd, with our contributions going unappreciated. The inverse is also true: Those who usually work behind the scenes can find themselves getting the recognition they deserve while Neptune is retrograde. Due to this shifting spotlight, now is a good time for us to take stock of our productive and creative efforts, to value them outside of the kudos they may earn us, allowing us to understand the intrinsic value of our contribution to the world.
Tuesday may just be the day to try something new, as the stars are lining up to support us in breaking new ground. First up, the Sun in Gemini is sextile to Uranus in Aries, early this morning. This is an aspect that encourages us to put our most original plans into motion. It promises rewards for those who are willing to take the risk to see their ideas realized. Tuesday evening, the Sun trines the Libra Moon. This is an aspect that puts a positive light on relationships and partnerships. While this can mean that you find yourself suddenly socially in demand, it can also mean that you now can find the right people to help your newly begun plans succeed.
Early on Wednesday morning, it is the Sun’s turn to be quincunx to Mars in Scorpio. Unlike Tuesday, this is not the day to take risks. We are likely to be aware of our own power, which will lead us in to trouble, be it through headstrong, combative confrontations, or by taking rash and impulsive actions that make us our own worst enemy. Instead, today is a good day to move others through subtle diplomacy instead of force, and to show our leadership potential by steady work and flexibility.
The Scorpio Moon is sextile to Jupiter in Virgo on Thursday afternoon. My mother always used to tell me that, if I found something I truly loved, I would find a way to make a living from it. This aspect supports this idea. Do not expect that living to fall into your lap: It is guaranteed to take work, and lots of it. Thus, spend some time today to search your mind (and maybe the internet) to find the way to turn your passions into a living, and develop a step by step plan to make it happen.
On Friday afternoon, Venus enters Cancer, making things much trickier in our emotional life. In general, this is a very family-centered, nurturing time. Love, now, is often expressed by us in terms of providing material security, and we’d like the same given to us. Between now and July 12th, our need to know ourselves to be loved becomes pressing. The problem is that we will also feel the need to wrap our emotions in a protective outer shell. We want others to pursue us, to prove that they truly love us, without us ever letting them know we need this reassurance. This makes it very difficult for others to know what we actually need at any given moment. Watch out for passive-aggressive tendencies. In fact, spend some time over the next four weeks trying to find ways to nurture your sense of emotional security, instead of seeking it from others. Also, it is important that not expect our loved ones to understand that doing the grocery shopping is our way of saying, “I love you.” They, like us, are also likely to be swaddling themselves in a protective shell, which can cause subtle expressions of love fail to hit the mark. Try to speak up, both in terms of what you need and what you feel.
The Moon and Saturn pair up in Sagittarius on Saturday evening. This is a good time to turn your efforts toward your business affairs, as you will have an attentive and critical eye. However, this is an aspect that can drive such efforts to an extreme, bringing out the never satisfied perfectionist in you. Today, yes, you will want to get some productive work done, but make sure you also give yourself some time to breathe in some fresh air, clear your head in a garden, or even find a friend with whom you can goof off and laugh at the world. Finding the time to let go of your ever-critical self is important to your ability to produce good work in the long run.
Very early on Sunday morning, Mars in Scorpio is quincunx to Uranus in Aries. This is a day when we run the risk of self-confidence turning into over-confidence, leading us to trouble. You may feel sure of yourself and even more sure of what you know, but this can also mean you are shutting out some important information, or that you are operating on prejudices. If you rush forward, acting on this faulty information, you are likely to see an end to your plans. Instead, try to keep yourself open to new information, give yourself time to think things through calmly, then follow through with practical, not forceful, action. Uranus always means we should expect the unexpected. Today, we need to make sure we are receptive to these surprises and flexible enough to shift our own actions as they arise.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
