The Big Picture:
This busy celestial week brings a Full Moon and a change of sign for no less than three planets. As Mars moves into Cancer, Venus into Taurus and Mercury into Gemini, we can expect the energies to favor family affairs and affectionate friendships. It’s a sociable week, but most of us won’t want to go too far from home.
Get your home in order, so that you can feel safe, secure and content with your loved ones. It’s an excellent time for putting down roots and for making your home feel more permanent and settled. If you want to move – get the wheels in motion.
As Venus arrives in Taurus, creature comforts become very important. During this sensual, loving energy, snuggle up with your sweetheart and let the world pass you by. If you’re single, it’s a good time to date – but stay true to yourself.
Let someone else get a word in edgeways! Mercury zooms into Gemini this week, and you’ll feel extremely talkative, chatty and lively. It’s a fantastic week to make new friends, and to get noticed for your communication skills.
Mars’ arrival in Cancer brings out your most basic protective instincts. Do everything you can to keep your loved ones safe, naturally, but be careful not to overstep the mark. Allow your loved ones their freedom too.
It’s a highly creative Full Moon, so let your emotions flow onto paper, into your art or through your music. Self-expression is vital now, so don’t hold back. However you let your feelings show, what matters is that you do.
If you can lead others at work, you’ll shine. If you have to take orders from elsewhere, however, you may struggle with authority figures. Try to show how valuable your contributions can be – while struggling masterfully to keep your temper!
Intellectual restlessness could lead to boredom. Learning something new will fascinate you; if you can’t attend a formal course of any kind, teach yourself! Make good use of the library and online resources. What do you want to learn?
You don’t have to spend a fortune to prove that you love someone. Beware of trying to buy love, especially during the Full Moon period. Simply give your lover your time and your attention – lavish gifts are lovely, but no substitute for emotional engagement.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius puts your emotions on edge, so you may find that you’re snappier than normal, or not quite your normal sunny self. Lots of sports or exercise will help to use up excess emotional energy, restoring calm and equilibrium.
Mars moves into your love zone this week, offering plenty of passion! However, Mars brings tempers too, so this is unlikely to be a quiet week in your relationship. If you do fight, be quick to make amends. Don’t allow hurts to linger.
Calm descends upon your household this week, and even the most difficult of family members should be easier to get along with. Make the most of these serene energies by planning a family getaway, or getting everyone to help with a home makeover.
Tempestuous passions are stirred up by Mars’ arrival in the most flirtatious part of your chart. Watch out for jealousy, whether you’re feeling it or provoking it. Playing with fire is always dangerous, but may prove irresistible for a short time this week.
