This week’s astrology forecast and horoscopes feature a New Moon in Cancer, Mercury moving out of Gemini and into Cancer, and Venus getting cornered by Saturn and Uranus.
Sun Sextile Uranus
At the beginning of the week, we get a tiny (and by tiny, I mean tiny) break as the Sun in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus. The Sun sextile Uranus tells us that we need to shake things up and break from our usual routines, and engage in different and exciting activities. Monday is also a great day to make changes to your life in areas (i.e., where you had difficulties) that may have become apparent last week when Mars opposed Saturn and squared Uranus.

On Tuesday, we are back in the saddle again, starting with Mercury square Neptune. The early part of the day will likely include brain fog and about enough motivation to pour a cup of coffee. Confusion and difficulties staying focused may dominate the day. Later, on Tuesday, Venus opposes Saturn, which along with Mercury square Neptune may leave you with feelings of self-doubt and other inner insecurities.
Venus oppose Saturn is a challenging aspect because it represents struggles in relationships, not the chocolate-covered strawberries and champaign type of business – the tough stuff. Venus oppose Saturn often reveals the areas of relationships that need work. Resolving relationship business will let you have fun again, so when the taskmaster calls, make sure you answer.
Venus oppose Saturn dovetails into Venus square Uranus on Thursday. As I mentioned earlier, with the Sun sextile Uranus, Uranus likes to shake things up and works no differently with Venus. On the positive side, Uranus often provides answers and strategies for relationship problems. On the negative side, Uranus likes freedom, and breakups can occur if relationships become too stifling or restrictive. The key is deciding whether a relationship is worth the effort, and practicing acceptance if it is not.
New Moon in Cancer
Look up in the sky on Friday because the New Moon is the sign of Cancer, and we reach the peak of Cancer Season. Now, unlike the last New Moon, a solar eclipse, you can do any intention or magical work you desire. So, get out your toolkit; it’s time to rock n’ roll. This New Moon is about new beginnings in Cancer’s domain – home, family, security, and fertility.
Mercury in Cancer
Finally, this busy cosmic week in astrology ends on Sunday when Mercury moves out of Gemini and into Cancer. Your intuition will be in overdrive, and you will understand things deeper than you normally would. Your sensitivity and compassion for others will be enhanced, and you may find it challenging to be around people who are angry, discordant, and cold.
Beautifying your surroundings may be vital to you at the beginning of the week, because you will see your home as a reflection of yourself. On Tuesday, be careful of what you say to others, because loose lips sink ships, and there is a gossip in your midst. Towards the middle of the week, you may feel your responsibilities are taking over your life, and you may feel overwhelmed by other people’s expectations. Push away negative thoughts if possible. This weekend, the New Moon occurs in your solar 4th house, and you may feel the need to get some extra rest and enjoy some peace.
Keeping it simple will be your mantra throughout the week, as new thoughts and ideas attempt to hijack your mind. On Tuesday, Mercury forms a nasty square to Neptune, and you may need to shut down other people’s opinions so that you don’t get confused and have difficulties making decisions. Towards the middle of the week, you may need to focus on work-related matters and put fun and enjoyment on a shelf, at least temporarily. Unfortunately, the actions you take now will have long-term consequences. The good news is that the New Moon and Mercury are moving into Cancer in your solar 3rd house, and your social card should quickly fill this weekend.
Unexpected financial opportunities may present themselves at the beginning of the week, which may prove lucrative. However, check all the facts and verify everything before you make any decisions. Failure to follow due diligence could potentially damage your reputation. During the middle of the week, relationships that you believed were dead and buried may go into zombie mode and resurface. You may have an opportunity to revive some, but those not worth the effort are best left in the graveyard. This weekend, the New Moon occurs in your solar 2nd house of finances. It’s an auspicious time to make investments and create strategies to secure your future.
This week, the Sun in your solar 1st house forms a lovely sextile to Uranus. Your relationships with friends and associates may provide deeper insight into yourself and your current motivations. You may even find many of your ideas about life have radically changed. During the middle of the week, financial obligations may attempt to rain on your parade. It will be necessary for you to take care of business and resolve any difficulties. This weekend, the New Moon occurs in your solar 1st house, and it’s a great time to reset your life and create a new you.
Life is not a soap opera, and you are not nominated for an Emmy, so it would be wise to nip any drama in the bud before the train runs off the track. Relationship issues may be your primary focus throughout the week, and you may be forced to make choices and decisions you would rather avoid. However, you may need to go full-on lion mode to resolve problems and frustrations, and let people hear you roar. This weekend, the New Moon lands in your solar 12th house, and you may need to recharge your batteries.
This week, you may need to rely more on your support system than you normally would, because your planetary ruler Mercury is square Neptune. You may find it challenging to stay focused on Tuesday, and it might be best you do not perform tasks that require concentration. Towards the middle of the week, you may feel burdened by your duties and responsibilities, and sometimes you may feel overwhelmed. The energy shifts this weekend as the New Moon lands in your solar 11th house. It’s an excellent weekend to leave your troubles behind and have some fun. Additionally, new additions to your tribe may appear on the scene.
The Sun in your solar 10th house forms a lovely sextile to Uranus. The spotlight shines on your reputation, and you may receive surprising acknowledgment from your peers. Towards the middle of the week, be careful of buried resentments in your relationships that may be easily triggered, especially if you want more out of your relationship than your partner is willing to provide. This weekend, the Full Moon and Mercury join your Sun in your solar 10th house, and could open new opportunities for you. If you are looking for a new job, now is the time to set those intentions.
This week it’s time to shake things up and add a bit of spontaneity to your relationships. Look outside the box and do something new that you may enjoy. Later in the week, career frustrations may resurface, leaving you feeling insecure and filled with self-doubt. Be sensitive to your emotional needs. This weekend, the New Moon and Mercury land in your solar 9th house. It’s time to look at the big picture and reassess your goals. You may have new learning experiences that broaden your horizons.
Changes to your usual routine may feel a bit discombobulating at the beginning of the week. Just remember that sometimes change is necessary to keep things fresh and current. Mercury forms a challenging square to Neptune on Tuesday, and your relationship sector is under the gun. Communication with your partner may be challenging during this cycle, so giving each other a little space may be the best medicine. This weekend, the New Moon lands in your solar 8th house. It’s a great time to resolve financial obligations.
It’s going to get a little spicy at the beginning of the week when the Sun in your solar 7th house forms an exciting sextile to Uranus. Romantic encounters will be stimulating, to say the least! Towards the middle of the week, financial frustrations could ruin your steeze, but your ingenuity may find a unique resolution. So, all you single Capricorns, this is your week for love and romance. This weekend, the New Moon happens in your relationship sector, and this is the best New Moon of the year to set your relationship intentions. You may find love in the most unlikely place. So, don’t miss your moment.
Developing structure and routine in relationships may be a necessary evil this week. You need to ensure that your partner’s wants and needs are a priority. Your creative juices may feel clogged on Tuesday when Mercury squares Neptune. Focus on necessary tasks and leave those that need more focus until later in the week. The New Moon lands in your solar 6th house, and it’s a great time to focus on your health and create a new wellness plan. Exercise and proper nutrition are a must over the next month.
This week will offer you profound insight into your mental state if you avoid getting too caught up in your daily struggles. Unresolved family issues may be a killjoy on Tuesday when Mercury in your family-oriented solar 4th house squares Neptune. A family member’s motivation may confuse you, which could lead to hurt feelings and disappointments. Later in the week, you may feel alienated from others because your duties and obligations may be too pressing to escape. The good news is that the New Moon occurs in your solar 5th house this weekend, and it’s a great time to escape the real world and focus on what pleases you.
See you next week!
