The best news of the week is Mercury sailing into his own sign Gemini on Tuesday. This quickens the pace in both movement and thinking for all and lightens the mood. Also on Tuesday is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, which will be in a difficult alignment to Neptune in Pisces. This may bring a bit of a reality check in that the rose colored glasses didn’t quite work (in other words, positive thinking isn’t enough), so this full Moon will illuminate where our thinking needs to be shorn up.
Venus in her own sign Taurus is in a difficult alignment to stern Saturn in Aquarius and this has the effect of creating nostalgia for us for when times were simpler and less entangled with technology. We can expect to see more pushback against high tech this week.
In general, this week isn’t too bad, really. The challenge of Venus and Saturn will make things interesting for each sign. Mercury and the Full Moon will help us handle the stresses of that challenge. It’s up to us, let’s do it!
Keep looking up, stay healthy, and…
Keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Watch those purse strings! Venus in your sector of Finances is in a difficult position to restrictive (retrograde) Saturn in your sector of Friends/Goals, so something you are trying to achieve may be more than you can really afford and no amount of positive thinking can alleviate the fact that it just isn’t feasible right now. Other than that, things are pretty darn good up there. Tuesday’s Full Moon in friendly Sagittarius occurs in your sector of Expansion and gives you encouragement.

This may bring disputes to your primary relationships over something unusual you are involved in that others disapprove of…you usually play your cards close to your chest though, so if no one knows, you may feel overly burdened and crabby.

Also on Tuesday is the Full Moon in friendly Sagittarius in your sector of Creative Expression. Help is there for the asking.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Venus in Taurus (your sector of Expansion) is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius (your sector of Work./Health) this week, so you may feel kind of cramped and over scheduled.

This will give you the resilience to consider options from the edges that you otherwise wouldn’t see, should you find yourself in a bind.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Not a bad week at all, except for Venus in Taurus (your sector of Relationship) being in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius (your sector of Home). Stresses build this week over projects and tangible things that need to be done (rather than emotional) and a lack of time. Helping a lot of Mercury moving into swift thinking Gemini (his own sign) in your sector of Partnership, so it looks like you’ll have the support you need if you ask for it. Getting you to ask for help is like pulling teeth sometimes, but if you see fit to reach out, you’ll get what you need. Tuesday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius lights up your Financial sector.

This will help you with the difficult alignment between Venus in Taurus (your sector of Work/Health) and Saturn in Aquarius (your sector of Thinking/Communication). The work place may be difficult this week, or perhaps if you are dealing with a health problem, you may have difficulty getting the help you need efficiently. Balance may be difficult to achieve so if you’re tired this week, what’s why. Be sure to get enough time to rest up.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): Venus in Taurus (your sector of Creative Expression) is in a difficult alignment to Saturn in Aquarius (your sector of Finances/Resources) this week. This could put you at odds with a goal you are trying to reach or an idea you are trying to get off the ground. It’s possible that an original estimate turned out to fall short. This frustration is eased by Mercury moving into his own sign Gemini in your sector of Partnership, so consulting with someone you trust is called for to get things going again; you need to see options now. Tuesday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius will help you see where the parameters are so that you can organize around your current progress and still make headway. All is not lost, just delayed a bit.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): Swift thinking Mercury moves into his own sign Gemini this week and fires off your sector of Creative Expression. This is always a good thing and gives you a dose of the happies! It’s a good thing too, because Venus in Taurus (Home) and Saturn in your sign are at odds with each other and this may cause some unrest on the home front. You may feel out of balance by wanting to spend more time at home but not being able to, or vise-versa. Mercury will help you find the balance; you’ll just have to work a bit harder at it this week. Not all bad by any means, just a bit tiring.
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): Tuesday brings Mercury moving into his own sign Gemini in your sector of Home, giving your home life a spark of activity and lots of chatter. Your work life will also pick up in terms of communication and efficiency flowing better.

This alignment brings stalled communication and perhaps stubborn refusal in something you are trying to wrap up or get off the ground. You’ll have to work harder this week to move ahead. Tuesday also sees the Full Moon in Sagittarius, brightening your sector of Career/Social Life.
