WEEK AHEAD – Monday, July 13th through Sunday, July 19th

  • Posted on July 12, 2015 at 10:35 am

Happy Sunday everyone! We are entering the halfway mark of July now with summer holidays well on their way. Sunday starts off with a Gemini Moon, which will be with us into the start of the work week. You can use this today for following your curiosity and doing things that intrigue the mind. Rest up while you can today though, because we have a busy start to this week. let’s take a look at what’s ahead.

Monday starts us off with a challenging square between the Sun and Uranus, which tends to cause shake-ups in order to make life a bit more interesting. But not all of us like shake-ups because they tend to make us re-examine something we have been trying to avoid. However, this energy can give us that push we need to untangle ourselves from any old and outdated habits that have kept us feeling stagnant. Be careful though of those who like to stir up trouble, especially if the situation has nothing to do with you. it can be all too easy to get sucked into other people’s drama right now. We also have a trine between Mercury and Neptune today bringing some harmonious energy to this chaotic mix. This can make it a great time for communicating our higher vision and ideals to others.

As we move into Tuesday we have the Moon entering Cancer. We also have some really strong fire and water elements at play and need to be careful of acting impulsively or getting caught up once more in the drama and emergencies of others. We have a trine between the Sun and Chiron as well today that will help us to see how our recent efforts toward healing those chronic struggles in our lives is panning out. New ways of approaching these issues can come to the fore now too. Add to all of this a challenging square between Venus and Saturn, where we may find we have a hard time relating to others. This can stem from an increased sensitivity to being rejected, where we feel unloved or unimportant. This is a transit best used for reflection though, so try not to read too much into situations because other people may be feeling the same as you are now.

On Wednesday we have an opposition between Mercury and “burn your bridges” Pluto. It would be best to avoid those individuals who are obsessive-compulsive, or at least give them a wider berth so they don’t go off on you. Mars and Pluto doing battle in the skies can create a very intense showdown! This is a time when tempers can flare, power struggles can emerge, and aggressive action could seem like the only way to handle a conflict. If you feel yourself becoming entangled in a mounting tension with someone, you might do well to back off a bit to let the adrenaline subside on both sides.

Thursday brings us a Cancer New Moon, where it would be wise to establish deadlines and goals at this time, as a way of preparing for a really busy spurt coming over the next two weeks. Otherwise you could find yourself spinning your wheels and getting nowhere. The point is to find balance between caring for others and caring for yourself now. We also have a conjunction between Mercury and Mars, bringing a time of quick wit and strong mental impulses. It can be an enthusiastic and productive time so use it to get things sorted out before you hit the weekend and to give you a head start on the coming week.

Friday starts our weekend off with a fun loving Leo Moon that wants us to open up our hearts and play. Some of you may feel like bunking off of work early, but make sure you don’t leave any loose ends at work that will bite you on Monday. This fun energy will be with us for most of the weekend now.

Saturday sees Venus moving into purifying Virgo, the sign she will be turning retrograde in on the 25th. This marks the start of the slow down period where we will be revising our values around money and relationships over the next 2 months. Be careful with Venus in perfectionist Virgo though, or you could end up nit-picking a relationship or issue to death.

On Sunday the Moon joins Venus in Virgo, where we tend to gravitate towards activities that are practical. Its a good day for getting things ready for the week ahead, for taking care of yourself, and for doing a bit of re-organizing if the mood strikes us. Mercury is busy today as well. We have a challenging square between Mercury and Uranus to start with, and this can make us feel a bit scattered mentally, hence doing practical, non mental tasks today. Mercury will also be trine Chiron, which opens up the door of positive and healing communication with those around us. People are more willing to listen now and show understanding, so some heart to heart talks can do well at this time. This also supports that Virgo energy of healing, so maybe some meditation can be helpful as well.
