There are a lot of major astrological events this week that are much bigger than the week itself. Think of this week as the scene in the movie where all the characters have the same goals and motivations as before, but move to a new setting which changes everything. You will be able to read about this week’s sign changes elsewhere, but they deserve a brief summary here.
On Tuesday, the North Node enters Cancer, so you can expect the people around you to lean a little more heavily into their feelings. On the same day Uranus, still retrograde, goes back into Aries — so you might be feeling more of a call to action with your life. And on Thursday, Jupiter enters Sagittarius, which should give the next year or so a little more bounce than usual. This all sounds pretty eventful — and it is! — but don’t expect the revolution to start all at once this week.
In order to take full advantage of what’s coming up in the following months, you might need to reboot something in your life. Make a plan (and make it practical and observable), make the affirmation, and then make it happen — Wednesday’s New Moon in Scorpio will provide you with the added boost you will need to get those changes underway.
In fact, making plans and setting intentions might be a better idea this week than simply jumping into something new. The week is overshadowed by Jupiter quincunx Uranus. The quincunx is an inherently weird and kind of hard to define aspect which joins two planets that are in two signs that probably have no business talking to each other. In this case, you may find the things that make you happy and fulfilled are at odds with your need to break free of circumstance and to really find yourself.
For love and romance purposes, the biggest news this week is Venus trine Mars. It’s unusual for this aspect to have happened twice in the space of about a month, but thanks to Venus retrograde that’s exactly what’s happening. Venus retrograde functions better-than-average when it is in Libra, but there is still a significant risk of falling into an old situation or an inappropriate one that you should normally know better than to engage. Mars in Aquarius isn’t exactly a champion at keeping out of situations that should be avoided either. This entire week is well suited to a sudden hormonal surge that could land you somewhere you don’t want to be. Use your head.
