STRAIGHT TO THE POINT:
Planetary energies this week slow us down and make us think. With both Mars and Pluto turning retrograde, it’s time to attend to matters we’ve tried to avoid. The Sun enters practical Taurus, which helps with this, and the Full Moon rounds out the week on a note of balance.
Go back to school, Aries. Don’t be too proud to admit that there are gaps in your skills. The Full Moon asks you to consider how much your personal power could increase if you fill those gaps.
It’s all about give and take as the Sun enters Taurus and the Full Moon highlights your house of love. Strike a compromise between your own needs and wants and those of your partner. Balance matters.
Adjusting your daily routines could resolve a relationship niggle – if you don’t see enough of each other, for instance, try getting up earlier for a regular early morning date. It will help.
Make more room for fun in your life. Hard work pays the bills, but creativity and playfulness are more important just now. The Full Moon re-awakens your inner child, so let her shine brightly.
Family members are an inspiration this week, especially if you are feeling creatively blocked. Run ideas past your partner or your kids; they have a unique take on the issue which you’ll find helpful.
A family issue which was swept under the carpet needs re-addressing now. Face it with compassion, understanding and tolerance. The Full Moon will help you to find the right words for this sensitive situation.
The Full Moon may bring some unpleasant financial news. This is your cue to re-examine how you have been using your talents. Are you wasted in your current job? Think about a change of direction.
The Scorpio Full Moon is an important moment for your relationship. Will you choose to put past hurts behind you and to move forward as a team? It’s do-able if your love and commitment are strong enough.
Mars turning retrograde in your sign means you’re facing the week with much less physical energy than normal. This enforced slow down is a good thing, however, as it gives you time to reflect on your year so far.
You’ve been somewhat isolated recently, but the Full Moon encourages you to reach out to others socially. If you have felt shy or awkward, this is a good week to work on your self-esteem and your self-confidence.
Ethics and principles are on your mind during this week’s Full Moon, and you’ll want to be sure that your employer or business is sound in these areas. If you spot weaknesses, bring them to light.
Career progress slows a little this week and you may not get the result you wanted from a test or interview. However, this isn’t the only avenue open to you. Think carefully about where your future might lie.
