2016 is a Leap Year, and Monday is the day we add every four years to balance our calendars with the actual movement of the Sun. This Leap Day, Venus in Aquarius is quincunx to Saturn in Sagittarius, making this an ideal time to check out the partnerships you find yourself in, to see if they are in balance and in line with your long term goals. Particularly, make sure these partnerships are ones that are two-way streets. These relationships should be helping you as much as you are helping your partners. Also, are they creating more emotional drama in your life, distracting you from the work at hand? If your business partnerships aren’t serving you, it is time to make some adjustments.
Tuesday afternoon sees the Sagittarius Moon squaring off against Neptune in Pisces, making for an emotional day. This aspect can bring a sense of optimism, even when optimism is inappropriate. The result can be that you hurl yourself in with abandon, when a moment’s hesitation to think matters through would potentially save you from a great deal of trouble. Be wary of someone who wants to lead you astray today, even if that someone is you. Overindulgence, or escapism in the form of alcohol or drugs, can have lasting consequences, as well.
Venus in Aquarius is sextile to Uranus in Aries on Wednesday evening. This aspect is generally one that brings on the romance, but with Aquarius in the picture, the focus is more likely to be on friendships, instead of the emotional drama of a romantic relationship. With Uranus bringing out your daring, or even shocking, side, perhaps it is time to think about some unusual arrangements in your love life: Consider the idea of making a good friend into a friend with benefits, even if the benefit is simple companionship. You may be too busy to deal with a romantic relationship, but you don’t have to be alone. And this aspect is likely to make your chosen one more receptive to the unconventional arrangement.
Thursday morning, Venus in Aquarius sets us up for some potential difficulties when she is quincunx to Jupiter in Virgo. Aquarius hates emotional drama, and you are likely to be willing to twist yourself into contortions to avoid such conflict. But, under this aspect, too much insincerity or false flattery, those “little” white lies we tend to tell to avoid an emotional scene, are likely to cause a bigger problem than telling the truth from the get-go. Don’t do anything for just appearance’s sake now, as it will cost you more than you bargained for. Instead, try to tackle today’s confrontations head on, with an open and honest heart, and you will create your own good fortune.
When the Moon and Pluto move into conjunction in Capricorn on Friday, it may be difficult to find the silver lining in any of the clouds that come your way. Unexpected changes are likely, and you may feel like you won’t ever be able to find your way through. Try to not worry too much: For every earthquake that Pluto triggers, there is the opportunity for new growth afterward. Today may be difficult, as you are forced to deal with the storm clouds around you, but the sun will come out again, soon, and light the way forward.
Your dark mood is likely to linger into the weekend, as Saturday brings Venus square to Mars in Scorpio. Your analytical mind is going to busy itself finding fault in all and everything, and, sadly, you are going to think that you are being helpful when you point out everyone’s faults. But, with Scorpio’s intensity, you’re likely to take this too far, causing hurt feelings and bruised relationships. Unless you really want to start a fight, today is the day to pull your verbal punches: Not everything needs to be said. Sometimes, holding your tongue is the wisest move.
Two planets change sign on Saturday. First, we see Mercury move out of cerebral Aquarius and into the more emotional waters of Pisces. The good news is that, during the next three weeks, your intuition will be strong, your imagination will thrive, and your creative drive will be working overtime; you will even find yourself more sympathetic to the struggles of those around you. The bad news is that, now, thinking logically will be a real challenge, and, when you try to work in a busy environment, your heightened empathy will make concentration almost impossible. Self-confidence can take a hit under this influence, as well. Now is an excellent time to allow yourself to dream big, making sure to take note of these flashes of inspiration, as you will need to find a way to make these things happen in the real world, later, when your rational mind is stronger. Also, give yourself plenty of quiet alone-time, so that you don’t become completely overwhelmed by the noise and mental energy of the world at large. Later, in the evening, Mars moves into Sagittarius, heightening your daring, courage, and independence. This is an influence that will see you immediately attracted to the new and the ideal; seeing projects through while facing the difficulties of reality will be the struggle. Distraction and boredom are risks you will face under this influence, and these can cause you to be impulsive and act rashly. While sticking to a single project can be difficult, now, this can still be a productive time, as your enthusiasm for new projects can spur you to brief periods of concentrated and enthusiastic work.
Sunday morning also gets off to a rocky start, when the Sun in Pisces squares off against Saturn in Sagittarius. You are likely to feel you’ve put in enough work, and that it’s time to do little more than nap or sit quietly with nature and let the world slide past. The problem, though, is that there are issues that need addressing today, if you are to reach your long-term aspirations. Later in the morning, Jupiter in Virgo is quincunx to Uranus in Aries, ushering in those unexpected issues. Your leadership abilities, as well as your ability to motivate others, will be called upon now. Just be careful how you address your troops: A dictatorial mien will only make the situation worse. Finally, as Sunday draws to a close, the Sun will be sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. As you’ve struggled through the past few days, it’s been tough to feel like you can catch a break. This final aspect of the week will set you up to start the next week on a positive note, ready to embrace new ideas and new opportunities. Get a good night’s sleep tonight, and awake refreshed and revived, full of confidence and ready to embrace the future.
I hope this helps you have a great week!
