There has been an influence at work for the last couple of months that is exact again this week — Jupiter in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries. You may have found during this time that you got some brilliant ideas, came up with some much-needed breakthroughs, and were able to find new ways to face long-standing issues. You may have also found that you had a heck of a time holding things together and finding a sense of stability. This week’s exact opposition might bring you a double dose of both the positive and negative sides of this aspect.
That sense of agitation you’re going to be feeling on Monday (and throughout the first part of the week) may not be a hangover from Sunday’s Eclipse, or because you lost a bet on the Oscars. Mars opposite Jupiter is exact on Monday. That’s the sort of aspect that can cause a lot of annoyance, agitation, and impatience. It can also pump up the sex drive, so remember: there are ways to work out your frustrations.
Any decent Buddhist will tell you that the Ego is your enemy, but it’s not necessarily the kind of enemy that can just be taken out back and beaten up. If you have a need to take yourself less seriously (or just love that spiritual groove that comes from realizing your True Place in the Universe), then Sun conjunct Neptune (exact on Wednesday) is ideal for your purposes. Take yourself less seriously and laugh off the daily insults that life on the material plane can deliver.
A special note about weekend dating this week: finding the right person for you depends on both your chart and theirs, and also the transits each of you are having. One really helpful thing in your quest can be where Venus is at the time and what shape it’s in. Venus turns retrograde early on Saturday. Now that may not sound like the best of circumstances to you (and admittedly, there are better times for love, all else being equal). But this means that in the latter part of the week Venus is stationary. A stationary planet is a powerful one, and (again, all else being equal) this makes Friday a particularly powerful time for either finding a potential new partner or boosting the romance in an existing relationship. Just make sure your quest for someone new starts on Thursday, because the Moon is Void of Course for almost the entire day on Friday. If nothing else, get out there and chat someone up on Saturday and Sunday, when the Moon in Gemini lends a spark to the conversation.
