Mars and Jupiter blend their energies. Venus returns to Taurus. Mercury stations direct shortly after the New Moon in Gemini.
The week gets off to an auspicious start with Mars and Jupiter blending their energies. Confidence is in the air and, where we are able to channel it, good things follow. This could be a time to take a gamble on something outside of our comfort zone. If the due diligence checks out, too much caution at this time is counterproductive. Physical activity of all kinds is also strongly supported when the planet of action and the planet of faith and abundance come together.
Venus makes a move into her home sign of Taurus, bringing heightened sensual experiences and material wellbeing. Treasured possessions and things of sentimental value can bring more joy. Cultivating the soil and touching the earth can also be very grounding. Positive contact between Venus and the celestial bodies Ceres and Vesta supports making a commitment to helping others.
The Sun and Moon join on Monday in the sign of Gemini, setting us off on two weeks of fact-gathering and experimentation. This period highlights our curiosity and open-mindedness, a time when pre-judgments and preconceived notions can be set aside. The New Moon is a time for sowing intentions, so pledge to become a better listener and to elicit the opinions of people we wouldn’t think had anything to say. Mercury, the planet of communication, emerges out of retrograde on Friday, making this the perfect time to chitchat.
