You need to either resolve recent issues or forget them. This way, when your ruler Mars’ powerful aspect to the bountiful Jupiter triggers potentially rewarding ideas and encounters, you’re able to focus on what’s coming your way.
20 – MAY 20
The disappointing behaviour of others may be upsetting, but it isn’t as important as it seems. This becomes clear later in the week, when your ruler Venus moves to accent the structure of your life, shifting your focus to activities at home and out in the world.
MAY 21 – JUN 20
To your relief, you’ve dealt with numerous practicalities. You’ll get a much-needed break, but not until your ruler Mercury moves to accent intriguing ideas and ways you can broaden your horizons, on January 5.
21 – JUL 21
It may not be until you’re looking back on this week that you’ll realise apparent setbacks were decluttering your life. Letting go is challenging but the Cancer Full Moon on January 5 brings matters to a head.
JUL 22 – AUG 22
Being told what to do irritates you, yet deep down you know changes involving your work or well-being are vital. Rather than waste time arguing about details, plunge in and you’ll end the week on a high.
23 – SEP 22
Most situations you’re dealing with will defy logic. Acknowledge that and you’ll forget about analysis and rely on what you sense. This may seem out of character, but your instincts are amazing and lead you to make changes you’ve put off for too long. With foundations continuing to shift until the Full Moon on January 5, the far-reaching vision for the future you seek just isn’t possible, at least for the time being. Taking life one day at a time is an art, one you’d profit from adopting now.
23 – NOV 21
This is a week of undoing past arrangements, and in many cases ending unprofitable alliances. While this won’t necessarily be easy, the process of decluttering your life and your thinking is essential. Aim to do this before the Sun encounters your ruler Pluto on January 3.
NOV 22 – DEC 20
Judging by Thursday’s potent clash between Mars and your ruler Jupiter, there are questions you need to ask. Knowing that, if you must make plans, ensure they’re loose enough to alter as your circumstances evolve.
21 – JAN 19
No matter how clear your vision for the future, be prepared for an in-depth review. This has already begun but climaxes on January 5, when the Sun meets Pluto and brings a range of matters to a head.
20 – FEB 17
Watching parts of your life reorganise themselves may be unsettling. Still, instincts tell you these changes are in your best interests. You’ll get a clear sense of things around the Aquarius New Moon on January 20.
FEB 18 – MAR 19
It may seem cold, but you’re urged to think carefully about those to whom you lend a hand. Everybody’s facing dramatic change, including you. Get too involved in others’ circumstances and you could find you can’t focus on wonderful ideas coming your way.
