Two sign changes this week keep the cosmic energy lively and interesting. First of all, Mercury promotes deep, serious thinking when it moves into the dark waters of Scorpio. Mars, meanwhile, flies the flat for justice, balance, fairness and equality when it arrives in Libra. Mercury in Scorpio is about seeking deeper meaning and core truths. With intense focus, you’ll dig beneath the surface to get to the bottom line, mentally clearing away meaningless data and uncovering the essence of what’s really important.

Intellectual intensity can turn into obsession – once your mind latches on to an idea or train of thought, you won’t want to let go until you’ve taken it to its logical conclusion. Watch out for a tendency to think more suspiciously and even cynically during this time. You’re not likely to take people’s words or ideas at face value. At worse, you could be consumed with paranoid thoughts. Your best bet is to say what you’re thinking and get a perception check.

As for Mars in Libra Under the influence of Mars in Libra you might find yourself putting other people’s needs before your own. It might be harder than usual to figure out what you want because you’re so tuned into others’ feelings. This can lead to indecision and spinning your mental wheels, endlessly weighing all the possible scenarios rather than jumping in and committing to a course of action. In fact, you might even have a fear of commitment now, preferring to keep your options open.

If you’re a cardinal sign – Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn you might have a tendency to suppress your anger, which could lead to feelings of frustration and irritation. At worst, your behavior could become passive-aggressive, as you try to manipulate outcomes instead of asserting yourself more directly. You might need to take the risk of temporarily upsetting the external harmony by being honest about your feelings, in order to create a more authentic and lasting peace.




Listen to your instincts. You can read people very easily now and some of what you’re picking up suggests mixed motives at best. If you don’t feel that you can trust someone, keep your distance. Your gut isn’t lying.



Finding it hard to make up your mind? Mercury’s arrival in your love zone creates some indecision and wavering, and not only on matters of love, either. End the procrastinating by giving yourself mini-deadlines for decision making.




Sort out your clutter, clear your desk and make lists – lots and lots of lists. This is the ideal week to get organized and to learn some better time management skills. There’s so much more you could do if you could streamline life a little!

Create some new money-making ideas to shore up your income. There are a lot of extra gigs or side hustles you could work if you wanted to – so pick ones which make you smile, or which involve your existing hobbies. Go for it!




As Mercury arrives in your sign, you’re more inclined than ever to speak your mind. Weigh up what you say carefully, because people will listen, will believe you and will follow you. Your words have power now, but that brings responsibility.




Turn inwards this week and focus on your inner self. Try meditation or journaling or dreamwork to get in touch with your subconscious, the spirit world or the universe. Mystical and psychic experiences show you what is possible.
