• Aries

    The second half of last week saw a lot of change within a short period of time, especially from Wednesday to Friday, with things having settled over the weekend. This week follows a familiar pattern, except a period of concentrated change takes place on Friday and Saturday. This is when three events, within the space of 48 hours will have big consequences across the board. The first is Mars' departure from your friendship sector, a social and serendipitous part of your chart and return to a more nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on Friday. This is when the six week wind down of your current Mars cycle begins, in preparation for his return to Aries on New Year's Day. This brings a call to slow down, as does Mercury's retrograde turn in an adventurous part of your chart on Saturday. In between these two events you have Venus turning direct in your relationship sector on Friday. It is these U turns that will bring Venus and Mercury back to your financial sector early next month.

  • Taurus

    Some big changes last week have changed the dynamics of the year, but there is still change afoot. Fortunately, there is no urgency and no conflicts with no major forces vying for your attention. A prime example is Jupiter, who in his first full week in your financial sector should be demanding more attention. Instead, with the Sun not returning to turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters until next week and Mercury slowing down for a retrograde turn here over the weekend, this gives you time to examine and explore your options. Where there is some urgency is on the professional front, in the lead up to Mars' departure from your career sector on Friday. This is the same day that Venus turns direct in your work sector, with Mars working to fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, as the tide gets ready to turn on the job front. […]

  • Gemini

    The Moon will always amplify the importance of the areas of your chart it is passing through, as well as amplifying your emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses. The Moon is always on the move, with the difference this week being the significance of the area of your chart it is moving through. The week begins with the Moon in your financial sector, just as the lunar nodes are spending their first full week in your two money houses. This allows you to start the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled, but also the potential for some financial tension. This is simply the first test of what is now a policing of a need for balance between money coming in and money going out. The Moon will then move on to support Mars in his final days in an adventurous part of your chart, creating a surge in a passion for adventure. On Friday the Moon and Mars will return in tandem to your career sector, firing up your professional year. […]

  • Cancer

    Considering the significance of having Jupiter in his first full week in your work and Uranus in his first full week back in your career sector, there is a lot less professional urgency than you might expect. Fortunately, Uranus is in retrograde motion and by the end of this week, Mercury will be in retrograde motion in your work sector. This has the brakes on both job and career matters, but considering what is building, this is a chance to find your feet. This is also a chance to make the most of Mars' final days in your financial sector, with the money gods about to bow out for the year. After the lunar nodes left your two money houses last week, Mars' departure on Friday will finally bring a chance to take your money hat off. However, with a bit of help from the Moon, who returns on Wednesday, in these final days there will be a renewed push to take your financial power back. […]

  • Leo

    Despite the fact that you start the week with the Moon not only in your work sector but aligned with some powerful forces during the South Node's first full week here, this isn't the busy week first impressions might suggest. Instead, any work tension and job pressure on Monday and Tuesday suggests the very opposite, with a balance between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off now being policed. For while the South Node is spending its first full week in your work sector, the more powerful and dominant North Node is spending its first full week in an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, where it is policing a need for time to hear yourself think. However, the real guard against life becoming all work and no play is the fact that you have Jupiter in his first full week in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. […]

  • Virgo

    The fact that you have reached a busy and potentially chaotic week on the job front or with anything that keeps you busy, might be disguised by the playful lunar vibes at the start of the week. This won't completely disguise a sense of urgency coming from Mars during his final days in your work sector, but this will ensure you don't get the full force from the get go. Three factors have the potential to make this a manically busy week. The first is that Mars is leaving on Friday and the warrior planet of the cosmos' final days are always the most urgent, as he tries to pack in as much as possible. The second reason is that the North Node left an intuitive and imaginative part of your chart last week, where it had been policing a need to know when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off. The third reason is that the Moon will join Mars midweek, amplifying everything. The good news is that both will be gone by the weekend, with a chance then to recharge your batteries. […]

  • Libra

    When the gods shuffled the deck late last week, a lot of the cards landed in your favour. There is still more shuffling this week, but once again with positive implications. Jupiter's return to your communication sector and Uranus' to your relationship sector last week was a big deal, but even more so as this has happened in tandem. While Uranus will spend the rest of this year in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, it is not until the weekend that Mercury, the planet of communication turns retrograde in your communication sector. This will make it even easier to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. In the meantime, while you start the week with Venus, the planet of love still in retrograde motion in Libra, her direct turn on Friday will come just in time for her to pick up the romantic mantel. For Venus will turn direct just as Mars' leaves a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, turning his focus onto firing things up across the income, work and career fronts. […]

  • Scorpio

    Jupiter's departure from Scorpio last week has opened major new doors, with the future spread out in front of you. However, this has also allowed you to pull back and this week focus more on the last full week of your birthday month. This should be the point where you're ready to finalise your game plan, intentions and resolutions for the coming year, especially after last week's New Moon has already drawn a new line in the sand. However when Venus turns direct in a nostalgic part of your chart on Friday and Mercury turns retrograde in your income sector on Saturday, they will both make U turns that will see them return to Scorpio early next month. This will give both heart and mind a second say in defining your expectations for the coming year, with your heart in particular due to have the last say. In the meantime, there are exciting developments across the income and job fronts to be embraced and by the weekend on the fun, playful, romantic and creative front as well. […]

  • Sagittarius

    While this is the last full week of your old solar year, a point in any year when you are normally looking back and reflecting, ahead of the start of your birthday month and new solar year next week, new doors are already opening. As Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion spends his first full week in Sagittarius in over a decade, this has brought you to the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, with major new doors opening over the next 13 months. With Mercury in Sagittarius since late last month, you've already got your head in the game and around new options. Yet the lines between the past, present and future will become even more blurred as the week increases. Just as the Sun is spending his last weekend in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, Mercury's retrograde turn will give you a chance to cast your mind back over the past. The future is here, but old doors are still open and there is no urgency. […]

  • Capricorn

    When the lunar nodes shifted last week this was personal. As the North Node spends its first full week in your relationship sector and the South Node its first full week in Capricorn, this is the start of an 18 month policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Yet it is more than this, with the North Node promising real relationship growth over the next 18 months, while the South Node brings a chance to reconnect with the real you. Starting the week with the Moon in Capricorn puts this new need for balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test and this may fuel some strong emotional responses and even push some buttons. Any personal and/or relationship tension will not only ease by Wednesday, but as the fog of war clears you'll emerge with not just a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but a new sense of confidence and empowerment on both fronts. […]

  • Aquarius

    In a week where there are some major shifts in play, there is one planet who will be demanding your attention from the get go. That planet is Mars, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos' final days in Aquarius destined to be the most critical and empowered. Mars returned in May for what should have been a six week visit aimed at firing up your passions and fighting spirit. Yet after a retrograde phase and even a four week break, Mars returned in September, with an opportunity for a do over. It wasn't until the South Node left Aquarius and the North Node your relationship sector last week that you finally emerged from the pressure and the shackles of the past. Before leaving on Friday, Mars is determined to see you throw yourself into the things that excite you, your passions and fighting spirit. From Friday Mars will become part of an exciting wave across the income, work and career fronts. […]

  • Pisces

    As Jupiter spends his first full week in your career sector in over a decade and Uranus his first full week back in your income sector, the whole dynamics of your professional and financial years have shifted. Yet with Uranus in retrograde motion until the New Year, Jupiter in no hurry and Mercury turning retrograde in your career sector over the weekend, while there is every reason for confidence, there is zero urgency. Instead, with the Sun not returning to your career sector until next week, Mercury here until the New Year, Venus not returning until January and Mars returning to your income sector on New Year's Day, there is a chance to cruise to the end of the year. With the Sun in his last full week in an adventurous part of your chart and the North Node its first full week in a playful part of your chart, even if you wanted to, you're not going to get away with letting life become all work and no play.
