This Week the main event is Mercury’s entry into the sign of Libra. Venus is placed in her “home sign.” Your ability to address the details and to communicate in ways that promote balance and harmony, within the realm of relationships, might be extra powerful and flow naturally. Your ability to mediate or to use diplomacy to negotiate a peaceful solution will be well supported. What you say, how you communicate, and, most importantly, how closely you listen for the details and nuances could form the bond the bond that supports a new and balanced relationship. Venus is all about love, mutual attraction, ease, and flow.
The Sun in Virgo forms a challenging square aspect to the north and south Nodes. You might feel blocked in your ability to move in a promising direction – or to find a way to express your life’s purpose in ways that feel deeply satisfying. Paying closer attention to the details allows for improvement. Something old and “played out” needs to be left behind or diminished. This seems critical and might involve an important turning point or clarification that “changes the game.”
The Virgo Sun is itself challenged this week in a variety of ways. The tendency might be to promote your reputation, status, talents, and a source of pride. Moving yourself into the spotlight might involve demonstrations of your ability to find solutions by focusing to the details. An eloquent speech or presentation could promote your cause. But being a rule follower, the “teacher’s pet,” or too focused on avoiding mistakes, could interfere with your ability to pursue something truly innovative, exciting, and unprecedented. You might need to adjust habitual thoughts or patterns will challenge you.
The Virgo Sun inconjuncts Chiron in in Aries. As a result of an old distorting wound, you might have developed an aversion to risk, or initiating something new. The antidote is to “push through the fear.” A challenging adjustment you’d like to avoid needs to be made. You might have to control your compulsion to avoid mistakes at any cost. You might need to “raise your hand” and contribute your boldest idea. Shrinking from this challenge erodes confidence.
On the bright side Mercury in Libra trines the Gemini North Node. There can be lots of support for using your mind, a talent for communication, or an ability to forge “unlikely connections” to move yourself in a promising direction.
Mars in Virgo opposing Neptune implies inspired, compassionate action – a culmination or flash of insight that reveals something hidden.
At the end of this week Mercury in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius. Something balanced or reciprocating supports your ability to experiment with new ideas that hold great promise. Your values and ideals might be reinforced by forging ahead in a new direction, sharing what you know, and appreciating the trajectory your life has taken so far.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
This week the Sun illuminates your 6th house of work, routines, health, and some steady self-improvement. Practicalities and efficiency is emphasized. Hard work and self-sacrifice might be required. It appears that the North Node in Gemini – an area of promise relating to your life purpose (communications and making connections) – is obscuring or blocking your most authentic, a satisfying path forward. A culmination or turning point challenges you to let go of something old, familiar, safe and predictable. This could involve beliefs related to belonging – or beliefs related to doing what’s safe vs what’s exciting, innovative, futuristic, and aligned with your interests. It’s hard to embrace something new when your holding onto the past. Chiron ignites fear, triggers a personal vulnerability, or a lack of confidence in initiating something new. It might be time to take some risk to push through the fear. Neptune opposing Mars ignites something inspiring providing a path forward. Inner adjustments that break down habitual trains of thought or old patterns are required.

You may feel blocked or ineffective – on the wrong track, or clinging to a belief about home and family that’s outdated and confining – but comfortable and familiar. That could be the result of an inability to release an old commitment involving your future, future plans, or something potentially liberating and expansive. Infusing something culturally challenging or disruptive into the general discussion that might involve parents or parenting is a possibility. An adjustment or disruption to old patterns of thought could be clarifying.
CANCER (June 21-July 21)

Your security might depend on your ability to problem solve, to keep your mind flexible, adaptable, sharp, and able to clarify what’s true. Notice discrepancies between facts and beliefs. Fortunately this week it will be easier than usual to be diplomatic, extremely creative in forging “win/wins” and compromises acceptable to both parties. You have “a way with words” this week that invites harmonious cooperation. It might be important for you to take the lead – especially if it involves family/relationship issues, and the past.

It’s good to delve beneath the surface to expose what lies beneath, especially if a financial partnership is involved. A revealing detail that’s been hidden or overlooked could make your work easier. Taking compassionate action or “acting on a hunch” a tends to move you further and faster in the direction of your financial goals. Trusting your intuition seems wise. A turning point of some kind may be indicated if your goals seem difficult to achieve. Consider releasing an old belief about “working hard and making your own luck.” Sometimes it’s just a matter of doing it in the way that feels most natural to you, rather than relying on traditional solutions. It’s good to enjoy the ride while developing your own strategies for accomplishment.

Actions may be fueled by compassion or intuitive insight. Enlightened commitments are suggested. Mercury in your 12th house of what’s invisible, mysterious, or inaccessible suggests assistance from other-worldly sources of guidance, connections to those who have passed on, or access to “testimonials” that defy “the facts.” The Sun in Virgo is challenged by a blockage or fear related to following your true path or life purpose The issue might be a reluctance to release a past that’s supported fortunate financial partnerships, stability, and security.

SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
Jupiter in your third house suggests work that involves taking the lead in a teaching, mentoring, or an advisory capacity. Past experience might give you the credentials you need to be the expert – the one who leads others in a more promising direction – the one who provides the details or information in time saving, efficient, or enjoyable ways. You might be challenged to adjust your perspective in some regard when it comes to convincing the “uneducated masses” of your flawless grasp of the facts. You might miss the opportunity to show off or to present your skills in some “magical or amazing light.” But Mars opposes Neptune in the 4th house.
