WE CAN EX­PECT FIRE­WORKS THIS WEEK­END. These py­rotech­nics will glo­rify the sky, though we may also see sparks on the ground as Mars op­poses Pluto. While this op­po­si­tion can en­er­gize us and pro­vide lovely July 4 shows, we can also ex­pect pro­found de­bate.

We can see the moon and Jupiter dance to­gether in so­cia­ble, egal­i­tar­ian Li­bra in the even­ing sky on Fri­day and Satur­day. Li­bra en­cour­ages us to be fair and friendly, but it also shines a strate­gic spot­light on what is un­just. On a per­sonal level, we can feel driven, as if we should be do­ing some­thing, but what that is may be un­formed.

Mars op­pos­ing Pluto can act like a com­bus­tion en­gine, driv­ing us with an in­ner fric­tion. It can help us ac­com­plish things, as Mars al­ways feels bet­ter in ac­tion. It can also bring an ac­ci­dent-prone qual­ity. It’s safer to get busy than to try and sit still, but the trick will be to pay at­ten­tion. Keep clear goals in mind, and use this driv­ing en­ergy to get some­place. Don’t take ex­plo­sives or ex­plo­sive sit­u­a­tions lightly, just pro­ceed with eyes wide open.

On Mon­day, we may need some time alone, mov­ing at our own rhythm away from other peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions as an ir­ri­ta­ble Scor­pio moon forms a cre­ative grand trine with the sun in Can­cer and Nep­tune in Pisces.

On July 4, many peo­ple will agree that we need to change, but will de­bate which di­rec­tion as Venus en­ters talk­a­tive Gem­ini while thought­ful Mer­cury squares change-in­duc­ing Uranus. The even­ing grows more spa­cious and hu­mor­ous with the best of fire­works as the moon en­ters na­ture-lov­ing, free­dom-seek­ing Sagit­tar­ius. By the end of the week, we get hints of our work for our next chap­ter.

FRI­DAY, JUNE 30: An up­beat, friendly Li­bra moon cre­ates im­pa­tience about last-minute lo­gis­tics, which re­ally need our at­ten­tion. Deal with se­ri­ous con­cerns in the morn­ing and then re­lease obli­ga­tions in the af­ter­noon as our at­ten­tion wan­ders.

SATUR­DAY, JULY 1: Morn­ing en­thu­si­asm grows trick­ier as the moon squares Mars and Mer­cury mid­day. Opin­ions dif­fer, de­ci­sions are con­tested and protested, and an ar­gu­ment can quickly es­ca­late. Pay at­ten­tion, ex­er­cise pa­tience, and use this dy­namic en­ergy to cover a lot of ground. Hold hands and play it safe.

SUN­DAY, JULY 2: The sharp-edged en­ergy in­ten­si­fies as the moon en­ters Scor­pio around lunch; it helps to have clear goals. Avoid com­bustible sub­jects and impossible peo­ple.

MON­DAY, JULY 3: It’s im­por­tant to drift and dream as the Scor­pio moon forms a grand trine with the sun and Nep­tune in in­tu­itive, imag­i­na­tive water signs.

TUESDAY, JULY 4: Take part in a com­mu­nity pic­nic as Venus en­ters so­cia­ble Gem­ini. Mer­cury squares Uranus, and our minds and plans can change mid­day. Take a chance to meet new peo­ple as the moon en­ters Sagit­tar­ius tonight.

WED­NES­DAY, JULY 5: We can ex­pe­ri­ence a fresh aware­ness of the world be­yond our doors, though it also brings a ten­dency to be self-in­volved. Try not to as­sume what an­other feels or will do. Ex­plore pos­si­bil­i­ties but check be­fore com­mit­ting time or money to a new project.

THURSDAY, JULY 6: A slow morn­ing may be per­fect for com­muning with the nat­u­ral world but may not be par­tic­u­larly ef­fi­cient oth­er­wise. Awk­ward truths leak out mid­day — get the whole story be­fore re­act­ing. A new sense of se­ri­ous­ness helps us buckle down and make de­ci­sions this af­ter­noon as the moon con­juncts Saturn.
