Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
Welcome to another week!
All week we are continuing to reach towards the full moon. This is a time to focus on growth and bringing new energy into your life.
With the Moon in Taurus as the week begins on Monday, it’s a good time to get grounded and improve your connection to your body and the earth.
It’s also a time of gratitude for the people in your life. Even though life inevitably has us encounter challenging experiences and feelings towards other people for various reasons, those interactions and feelings can be our greatest catalysts to greater self awareness.
Monday we have the opportunity to see the light in others. Rather than getting caught up in the ego, it is best to find yourself more grounded. Choose your reactions to your experiences. No matter what others bring to the table in terms of their emotions and their own egos, it is best to take a step back, be mindful and see how the situation allows you to shine your own light more. Your reactions say most about where you are coming from, and can be a great opportunity to demonstrate who you are, regardless of what others are doing.
The energy you put out, changes the energy of the room and can be the key to others changing their position as well. This is a time to be mindful. Be who you are to help coax the future into what you envision.
Venus enters Pisces on Tuesday. This can be a wonderful beginning for the soul to flourish. Love is the highest consciousness. Feelings of compassion will become more emphasized now. Caring about the poor, the starving, the innocent, those who are having various challenges in life, animals that suffer, all of the heartache that does exist in the world can move us to become better and to do better. The intention of embodying and sharing love is going to increase for many and will awaken us to want to create a better world.
This is an opportunity to connect your heart with the higher Divine consciousness of the world. Each of us has the ability to channel love and to bring more of it into the world. As we bring more love into our relationships, we change others. By having a more open heart and mind, we encourage that in others by example. The ego is diminished when the heart is more open. Bonding with others, hugs to people and pets and giving of yourself to help others feel more love rewards the hearts of all.
The Divine Feminine, goddess energy associated with the heart and spirit is easier to access now bringing us to recognise love for others, ourselves and the world.
Situations can also arise now regarding material objects that bring up memories of experiences and people from the past. An object such as a piece of jewelry, article of clothing, a piece of furniture or other personal item that is connected to someone you love or once loved, can give you the opportunity to heal yourself and your relationships to others on a heart and spirit level.
Paying closer attention to the objects that significantly grab your attention in your life now, as well as those you frequently see in media and online can bring you important realizations. What do they represent to you in your life? Do they have a spiritual significance to you? What do the items in your life that matter to you most, represent to you on deeper levels of awareness?
Wednesday we have Mercury in harmony with Uranus. Mercury is retrograde now in Aquarius, and Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius. This is a potent time of new ideas and new ways of thinking. Always, when Mercury is retrograde, it is a great time to write and reflect. Journal now. Revisit your vision board or start a new one. It’s a great time to do a collage that reflects your ideas.
Allow your ideas to develop now. Spontaneous inspirations are sure to arise when you set aside some time to think and reflect on your life. It’s a great time to ponder your wishes, hopes and dreams for the future. The ideas that come forward can be especially energizing now. Your insights will likely be personal and internalized now, but will also draw you to explore others of like mind. People you may not know personally, but are distant role models and great thinkers can be found online and become part of your bubble of inner wisdom. Those you feel an alignment with can help inspire new ideas to consider more deeply. Key words others say can stick in your mind and influence your thinking process more notably now.
Thursday is more about emotions and words. Conversations, typing, texting, messaging, can bring up feelings to work through with others. If you feel like you’re getting distracted by gossip, topics and subject matter that isn’t really important, it’s best to reconsider the positive aspects Wednesday brought out in you and to focus more on growing that. If you come across a serious issue that pulls at your heart strings and demands your heart grow in compassion, feel that truth of who you are. Many may be encouraged today to be active in making a difference by signing petitions, or sharing subjects on social networks that make a difference in the world.
Friday is one of more active astrological days and reiterates emphasis on our minds and spirits. With Venus connecting with Saturn, relationships could be a bit at odds. How you are using your time in meaningful, purposeful ways can come into question. Challenging feelings of the heart can arise, but it can be where great learning takes place, so don’t knock it. Feelings and intuition can be at odds with the practical responsibilities that need your attention. Some may come to realize that to fulfill wishes and make a difference it requires effort. Today asks that your intentions are made real by doing the work instead of just staying at the level of mind and emotions. To get things done that matter a plan is likely necessary.
As well on Friday Mars and Pluto empower one another. The actions, willpower and ambitions to transform the world are heightened. To make real-world changes, the passion to create that change can be quite intense for many. Many will see what is wrong in the world, and choose to work towards creating a shift. To acknowledge the not so wonderful side of reality is the only way change for the better can truly happen. Change requires awareness of what is as the stepping stone to what is to follow.
Awareness is heightened greatly on Friday as well when the Sun and Mercury meet in Aquarius. This further emphasizes what was spoken of for Wednesday. Personal realizations can be awakened now that inspires your vision. Social reform, freedom, independence and humanitarian ideas are all emphasized. Honest reflection with an eye on the future you want is advised now.
Saturday and Sunday get more of our emotional attention. Feminine, receptive qualities are heightened. It is a good time to consider the concept of the Queen and Goddess archetype in our society. Compassion and sensitivity are heightened further. Connection to earth and water is recommended. Bare feet on the ground, hydrating with purified water, a relaxing bath with fragrant essential oils are all recommended to recalibrate your energy on Saturday.
When Venus and Neptune join forces on Sunday it can be a day of greater spiritual realization. The heart open to spirit is emphasized. The heart chakra gets an infusion of radiant energy. Hands on the heart, or prayer pose with hands together in front of the heart, are suggested. It’s important to take time to tend to your spirit today. Earth and emotions are connected. Showing affection to others is healing. Heartfelt hugs are suggested. It’s a great day to water your plants, giving nature a bit of your intentional love is good for you and the earth.
It is also an optimal time to be creative, artistic and to practice visualization. Pay attention to your dreams especially symbols that associate with water, coins, the heart, love and compassion,
Money is also given a new perspective on Sunday. How does spirituality relate to money matters? What are your fears and preoccupations about money? How do you transcend that fear and release doubts so you can attract and share feelings of abundance with the world. Money is energy. Everything is energy. A quantum physics approach to how energy works is a good subject to explore now.
The week asks us to trust our personal vision, our hearts and to bring our intentions into the world from a much higher state of consciousness.
