This week’s astrology forecast and horoscopes feature some lovely aspects at the beginning of the week (Mercury trine Jupiter, Venus conjunct Mars, and Sun trine Neptune), but this weekend, batten down the hatches because the Sun opposes Pluto.
Mercury trine Jupiter
On Monday, Mercury in Cancer forms a lovely trine to Jupiter. On the practical level, Mercury trine Jupiter is excellent for signing contracts, communication, and the ability to expand our minds by learning new subjects and exploring new opportunities. It’s an easy-going aspect that is light and usually agreeable.
But perhaps the most useful application of Mercury trine Jupiter is its ability to envision and plan the future. While Mercury trine Jupiter is active, it’s a great time to create plans, develop strategies, and use the power of positive thinking to create a better tomorrow.
Venus conjunct Mars
Love is in the air this week as Venus and Mars conjoin in passionate Leo on Tuesday. Venus and Mars increase sexual attraction, improve your self-esteem, and give a massive boost of confidence. Additionally, Venus and Mars in Leo are known to set off romantic fireworks! Venus conjunct Mars is excellent for working on relationships issues, understanding your partner’s needs, and expressing yourself in positive and individual ways. And, since Venus conjunct Mars happens while Mercury trine Jupiter is active, you can expect positive conversations about the future. For some of you, it may even be a perfect week to plan a wedding.
Sun trine Neptune
Towards the middle of the week, the Sun forms a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces. Now, it’s not an auspicious time to perform activities that require discipline and mental focus, but Sun trine Neptune is an excellent time for creative projects and spiritual work. In addition, you may find that you are more sensitive to the emotional needs of others and are more willing to help those in need. Also, if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily living, Thursday is the day to do it.
Sun opposes Pluto
Finally, after a week of relatively light energy, the ‘nasties’ will be out in full force this weekend, as the Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel that people are trying to control you or limit your freedoms. Expect power plays, manipulative people to creep out of their layers, and potential conflicts with authority figures. Also, avoid being overly willful; you may attract unwanted attention.
Unresolved issues from the past may finally get resolution and even give you a broader perspective on life. Tuesday, you can expect serious relationship conversations that may ultimately lead to discussions about the future. If you are a single Aries, it’s time to put yourself out there.
