Welcome back to our weekly horoscope led by our astrologer, De Rui

Saturn gives some power and steadfast energy to Mars and Mercury. Mercury disappears into the Sun to emerge later re-invigorated. Venus downshifts into Pisces where more relaxation is possible.

Time for nerdy people to shine

Star signs affected the most: Gemini and Virgo can be in their heads.

The Sun and Mercury merge completely at the start of the week, bringing into our orbit intellectuals or otherwise nerdy, quick-witted people. When Mercury flies close to the Sun, it receives an infusion of its proud and radiant energy, and yet at the same time disappears into the Sun’s light and becomes hard to distinguish.

This is the time to appreciate the socially awkward nerds around us and embrace, too, the inner bespectacled, pocket protector-wearing part of ourselves. If ever it could be cool to insist on facts and to be nitpicky about errors, now would be the time.

Manifesting powers are high

Star signs affected the most: Capricorn and Aquarius may be hard on themselves.

Meanwhile, Saturn, the disciplinarian of the planets, makes contact with Mercury and Mars, which are also in contact with each other. Our minds can be extra active with ideas zipping around all day and late into the night.

Saturn’s influence adds a layer of rigour and exactness to our thinking, forcing us to be extra clear and logical about our plans. Mars nearby will make our desires seem extra fated or pressing. This is a good time to apply yourself to tough mental work or projects that have been sitting on the shelf too long. Manifesting powers are high.

Finding joy in sacrifice

Star signs affected the most: Taurus, Libra, and Pisces will put their feet up.

To balance out all the hard work going on, Venus makes a move into Pisces this week and brings our affections to the softer side of life. There could be more joy in making sacrifices for others, and playing the role of saviour, healer, or caretaker for the people we love.

Wounded or damaged people or things could tug more at our heartstrings. The downshift from passionate pursuits in the early part of the year could be a welcome change for some. Relax by lighting some candles and putting on some music.
