This week has the Aries Full Moon and two Sign changes. Our emotions are turned up and we may find that we’re balancing our personal needs and our interests in other people. The keyword is balance. Like a metronome, we can be overly involved in people’s issues and immersed in their emotional drama and then swing back to recharge our batteries and regain the sense of our own identity. The balance point is to enjoy other people’s company without losing our own sense of self.

This week can be a roller coaster with significant ups and downs. Various Mars Pluto aspects can ramp up the energy with us trying to cover all bases only to cast aside some of our involvements. We begin the week with the Sun square Mars, mid-week Sun square Pluto and end the week with Mars opposed Pluto.
We could easily get carried away by our personal ambitions, which could prove taxing on our relationships. We have to watch that we don’t draw lines in the sand, demand black and white scenarios without considering the gray matter, or become overly adamant in our opinions.
This week has the Virgo New Moon, a partial Solar Eclipse and a Grand Cross in the Mutable Signs. With seven planets in Mutable Signs at the time of the New Moon, we could be pushed and pulled in various directions during this next fortnight. Storm systems, whether climatic conditions or emotional dramas, can be strong and intense.
While we are concentrating on our standing in our community, our work environment and our social circle, we might be thrown off center by the ratcheting up of our activities and involvements. We really have to consider whether we just have too much going on.
This week is incredibly active, and the shifts in energy this week can be explosive. No going quietly into the night for us. Rather, this week can have us feeling intense and champing at the bit. People may become hypercritical, looking at the half glass of water as half empty rather than half full.
This week is lit up by the Pisces Full Moon. With a Grand Cross in the Mutable Signs as the Pisces Moon opposes the Virgo Sun, squares Jupiter in Sagittarius and squares Mars in Gemini; this week could have us all over the place. Our emotions could go through a real whipsaw, up and down. We may feel buffeted by circumstance.
At the time of the Full Moon, Mercury opposes Uranus, both in Mutable Signs. While we could get some startling insights, even ‘Eureka’ moments of solving problems long plaguing us, things are moving very quickly and we need to be nimble and quick to take advantage of sudden opportunities and to deal with unexpected situations.
The pace is accelerating rapidly and we need to pick up our pace to a sprint. We may feel on overdrive this week, having more on our plate than we intended.
This week could have us feeling antsy. The sense of Summer drawing to a close may be poignant as we feel the weight of our responsibilities bearing down on us.
We may start the week feeling frustrated. Some of our greatest plans might seem thwarted. The Sun conjuncts Saturn. Our recent drive and passion can seem like idle musings as past issues and usual obligations start to call.
Although the Sun moves into Virgo beckoning us back to our normal routine, we are unwilling to let Summer pass.
We could have some difficulty getting our bearings as we start this week. We need to be careful that we don’t rush headlong into anything until we are certain as to where we are going.
This week is an active week with Jupiter turning direct, two planetary Sign changes and the Leo New Moon to end the weekend.
We may feel more determined to follow our bliss. Not everyone might applaud our passion and devotion. Someone could see us as self-centered and inconsiderate. While relationships can be a little testy this week, we have the ability to virtually move mountains.
This week brightens as it progresses. The beginning of the week could have us feeling sore from some of the push-pulls we’ve been experiencing recently. We may feel frustrated and as though the wind has been knocked out of our sails.
Mars squares Saturn reinforcing its recent T-Square in the Fixed Signs, having squared Neptune last week and now squaring Saturn this week. Ah, yes, our nemesis…
This week gives us the Sun entering its own Sign of Leo. We’re looking for fun, engaging in recreational activities and embracing the height of summer activities.
While we might feel a burst of energy, we have to watch for accidents or missteps this week.
