Do something you wanted to do

How are you? After last week’s astro weather twists, chances are you have a LOT to think about. Armed with new information – or a change of heart – this week is the perfect time to figure out what’s next. Despite the shortcomings of the best-laid plans, there is a problem-solving offering that should help circumvent apparent obstacles.

With support from Mercury and Uranus in the first half of the week, take time to zoom out and look at issues from a different perspective. Is there another plan of attack you haven’t thought of? If you have trouble seeing the wood for the trees, get a second opinion. Later in the week, Venus and Jupiter set the stage for the consolidation of a promising bond. Reach out to that business contact, text that person, or schedule the meeting that’s making you nervous. The sky is on your side to make a good impression.

ARIES AND RISING ARIES

New insight into a dynamic with a friend or co-worker means you’ll see things differently. The new information could be a game changer. How has that changed the way you feel? If this has been a problem for you, trust the stroke of genius that fell on you on Monday and Tuesday. It’s just the right mix of innovative and practical to progress.

TAURUS AND RISING TAURUS

No one would blame you for being a little serious after all the craziness that’s been going on lately, but this week challenge yourself to relax. Approaching problems with a sense of humor could do wonders. If that’s too much to ask, make an effort to schedule something fun on Thursday/Friday; you could do with the break.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Keeping your own guidance could pay dividends this week as your ruling planet Mercury receives an electrifying blow from Uranus. Laying low on Monday/Tuesday and making room to listen to your intuition – preferably while doing something grounded – will set the stage for unexpected downloads.

CANCER AND THE GROWTH OF CANCER

If you’ve been thinking about making a professional move, the sky looks mild. Save this (perhaps surprising) information from an absent colleague at the start of the week, then make your choice on Thursday. Whether it’s a new connection, a new job, or just another raise, if you don’t ask, you won’t get anything.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Have you thought that the hustle and bustle you feel at work might actually be the exact thing you need to leverage to your advantage? Stop finding holes in your experience and instead look at all the opportunities available to you to learn. All it takes is a willingness to flip the script and you might see things in a whole new light.

VIRGO AND RISING VIRGO

If you have the energy, there is gold to be mined from a little problem solving this week. Tackle an ongoing puzzle from a different angle could change the way you think about things on a cellular level. That’s a lot to process, and while you might be feeling socially low-key, trust the mind-blowing breakthroughs are solid information.

SCALE AND SCALE IN ASCENSION

When was the last time you did something just for fun? Challenge yourself to breathe and step out of the gravity of the past two weeks. Wednesday through Friday are the perfect times to catch up with someone you love (no need to be romantic) and let off steam. A little luxury, a little playfulness and a lot of indulgence will do you good.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO IN ASCENSION

Airing out your dirty laundry isn’t usually your style, but if you’re losing sleep over a relationship problem, this week seems like a good time to call a friend. A new perspective from a trusted third party might be just what you need to find a solution, especially at the start of the week.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Consider yourself officially sanctioned for letting your hair down this week. After a lot of angst – even if it’s only collateral – the stars invite you to have a little fun. With your ruling planet Jupiter trine Venus, a last-minute spa break might be the perfect treat.

CAPRICORN AND RISING CAPRICORN

This annoying and ongoing problem that came to the fore under the full moon on Friday might seem a little more manageable this week. There’s a brain quality at the start of the week that could set you up for a big breakthrough. Celebrate the light bulb moment with a little shopping just because.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS IN ASCENSION

How it started vs how it goes is likely enough different after last Friday’s full moon. If an even crazier alternative comes along this week, don’t dismiss it until you’ve had a chance to ask yourself “what if it really worked?”. Later in the week, activating the full charm offensive will be effortless, so schedule that important meeting/date/catch-up and make the most of it.

FISH AND FISH ASCENDING

If you’re still reeling from the past week, give yourself time to process and discuss what happened with someone you implicitly trust. Asking for a second opinion will help you figure it all out – especially on Mondays/Tuesdays. The second half of the week feels like a sweet escape from all the tension. Treat yourself to something indulgent, just because.
