The between-the-eclipses phase can be intense. Find ways to dissipate excess energy and channel restlessness into fab projects. While your sign’s ruler, Mars, is retrograde, take extra time in your work and activities to avoid fatigue. You will gain the chance to re-assess some of your decisions over coming months so avoid stressing over details. A breakthrough midweek will be welcome.
In this week’s lead-up to the eclipse in Leo, you may find events gain their own momentum; or are simply intense.
Take the time now to make the intention to hold your ground and maintain a calm demeanour, despite events that will create restlessness at the very least. Maintain a healthy routine. Someone you share duties or finances with should prove to be supportive.
A trip, visit or event that takes you outside your comfort zone will appeal. However, logistics may be complex or will simply ask that you draw on your inner resources. The help of a friend, group or organisation will not go unrewarded. Working Archers should find that good communication skills will also be rewarded - with improved status, a boost in ego or even financially.
Lovely activities midweek will restore your faith in humankind (if you ever really lost it!); and at the very least in those close to you. Changes you are considering will gain magnitude as you gain insight into the true logistics involved. Keep communications clear and crisp to avoid misunderstandings this weekend especially. A favourite activity will prove to be therapeutic.
You’ll relish the chance to clear some of your past ‘baggage’ this week. This may involve a health and wellbeing routine that has become outdated, for example, or work practices that no longer serve your higher purpose. For some, romantic or family matters will provide the impetus to make considerable changes. Avoid knee-jerk reactions to unorthodox events and people.
A legal or tax matter is best handled carefully this week, to avoid misunderstandings. Interpersonal relationships may push your buttons, so ensure you maintain a calm demeanour. You may be asked to help out in a domestic setting or at work. You will be in demand this week, so ensure you are clear about boundaries and about what is your duty - and what is another’s.
Take the time to enjoy the company of like-minded people this weekend, and also to boost your own wellbeing and health. Delightful developments at home or concerning joint and shared duties or finances will bring a smile to your face midweek. However, it's imperative to avoid misunderstandings and mix-ups, especially financially. Be super-clear in dealings now.
You’ll relish the chance to create more harmony at home and in your personal life. This may arise against a backdrop of out-of-the-ordinary events or surprises from people who can be unpredictable. A change of routine this weekend will suit you. Aim to boost communication skills for best effect this week. Someone from your past or at work will be helpful.
Mars retrograde in your sign will encourage you to delve deep; an introspective phase may be just what you want if you are interested in self-improvement and spiritual development. If you are trying to get ahead in a work context, you could also climb mountains, although extra effort will be necessary in communications, to avoid misunderstandings and conundrums.
You’ll appreciate the opportunity to deepen and improve your relationships this week. Aim to choose words and negotiate carefully to help the process along. Take the time this weekend to indulge in favourite activities to boost your wellbeing. Financial matters are best dealt with super-carefully midweek, to avoid having to go over old ground at a later date.
It’s all change for you. You may already know that things can’t stay the same: it’s onwards and upwards. But as you know, some change can be disruptive, so a little careful planning this week will not go unrewarded. Maintain a keen eye on providing yourself with daily health and work-life balance to maintain solid relationships and accord with friends and organisations.
This is a supremely romantic week; one of the most romantic this year. However, if you find that romance can be a double-edged sword for you (because you can become idealistic; see the world through rose-coloured glasses, or even become absent-minded), it’s important you keep your feet on the ground now. Someone may surprise you or push your buttons, so maintain calm.
