The week begins with the combination of a full moon in Scorpio and a total lunar eclipse. Scorpio is the sign of sex, death and transformation whereas lunar eclipses are times that encourage us to let go of things that no longer serve us. Therefore, you may find that this is a time of very sudden, rapid and significant change. It is possible that these changes may feel painful to experience, however it is important to remember that these are for the best and are clearing out what is no longer needed in our lives. It is also a time when your intuition will be incredibly strong and you could find yourself instinctively knowing what you want and how to achieve it, particularly in regard to relationships. It is important to listen to this inner guidance and to act on what it is telling you. Additionally, it is a favourable time to be direct and assertive, such as by sharing your desires with a lover or asking someone out on a date.
Come Tuesday, this is further enhanced when the moon forms a trine with Venus, the planet of love, intimacy and relationships. You may find yourself in a loving and receptive mood and this, in turn, will positively benefit your friendships and relationships. You may also find that sex feels more enjoyable, romantic and intimate at this time. It is also a time to relax and spend time with loved ones, however as the week progresses you may find that you become more prone to irritation, annoyance and frustration. Be aware of this in order to prevent any negative affects on your relationships. It would be wise to find a healthy outlet for any anger and frustration, so as not to let it simmer away under the surface and be understanding and considerate of others so as not to inadvertently cause any harm.
The moon square Neptune transit in the middle of the week brings a time of strange feelings and experiences. You may find yourself questioning whether you are perceiving things correctly, and the chances are that you are not at this time, so the advice is not to react too quickly or make important hasty decisions at this time. It is also a time when you find you are incredibly emotionally sensitive, so make sure you take care of yourself and avoid being taken advantage of or deceived. It may be good to find a distraction from reality at this time, something like writing, reading or watching a movie, which may also spark your imagination, provide entertainment and help to bring a sense of relaxation.
Towards the end of the week, you may find yourself feeling sociable and you may have a chance encounter with someone new, particularly someone from a different cultural background to yourself.
This is enhanced by Mercury’s sextile with Jupiter, bringing with it a boost to your communications and is a favourable time for socialising and you may find yourself connecting with others on a deeper level. Any public speaking and presentations at this time will be enhanced by Mercury’s influence on communication as well.
At the weekend the Moon is in square with Uranus which provides a sense of cheerfulness, optimism and good fortune. Once again, this is a good time to socialise with friends and family, perhaps having dinner together or attending a party.
The sextile at the end of the week between Mars and Pluto brings a boost of energy and stamina. This will be a favourable time to take action and move towards achieving your goals and desires, particularly those that may have seemed difficult or unachievable in the past will now be within reach. It is a time for you to be seen favourably and you will leave a strong and lasting impression on others.
