STRAIGHT TO THE POINT:
This week’s energy is rather edgy. Alternative thinking is very in vogue, courtesy of Mercury’s arrival in quirky Aquarius, but a dogmatic Lunar Eclipse in Leo urges many of us to insist on doing things our way. Tension between the new and novel versus the tried and tested could prove explosive.
Impulsive risks are huge gamble this week, but you just can’t seem to help yourself – you’re driven to take a chance, regardless of the consequences. Be very careful if you are flirting with danger in your love life. This is not the week to idly play with fire.
Try lateral thinking to deal with a difficult teen or older family member. Tensions may rise at home, but it’s important that you stand your ground and allow your authority to shine through.
Keep an eye on important paperwork – delays or missing papers would cause anguish at this time. Look out also for someone who wants to twist your words. Social media can be a minefield this week, so engage your self-censor button!
A shift in financial circumstances may be good news or bad news, but what matters is how you allow it to affect your self-esteem. Look beyond materialism this week to value yourself as a human being, not just as the owner of a bank account.
It’s time to stand on your own two feet. The lunar eclipse in Leo highlights your independence – or lack of it. Do whatever you need to do to feel safe, secure and confident in your own right, without having to rely upon others too much.
More flair and less perfection, please. In work and in your personal life, let go of the need to get everything absolutely right – instead focus on being more creative, more daring and more inventive with your approach to life. Time to shine!
Freedom is a major issue just now, especially if you’re a possessive or jealous partner. Allow your loved ones and friend’s time and space. Take a step back with teenage children or older relatives. Let them find their feet.
Feeling a change of direction coming on? The lunar eclipse may prompt a re-think of your career and life goals. It’s never too late to change your path, so be confident in following your dreams, including new ones.
Expect to find your beliefs and principles challenged. You may be forced to stand up for what you believe is right this week. Don’t shrink from the fight, as it will definitely be worth your while.
Find a better way to approach those people you don’t really get on with. This week, it’s up to you bend, rather than waiting for them to do so. It’s important that you get your point across, even to the most difficult of audiences.
Your public image is brought into sharp focus now, and you’ll be very conscious of how you come across to others. If you’re looking for love, come out of your shell and interact more. Love can’t find you while you remain silent.
Stop drifting – you need a plan. Take control of your life now by becoming more organized. By improving your time management skills and setting clearer priorities, you can pack much more into your day.
