This is one of those weeks that’s going to be a little hard to do justice within the context of a weekly horoscope. There is something much bigger brewing in the sky, and although it doesn’t come until the end of this forecast period, it’s big enough that I have to start with it.
Although Jupiter square Neptune is not exact until Sunday, its influence is a major player throughout the entire month, and indeed even beyond. Jupiter is the natural ruler of your life philosophy, higher practical values, and committed partnerships. Neptune is all about feelings and intuition and soulmates. Normally these two planets would sound like they were best drinking buddies, wouldn’t they? But the square aspect has a way of making even things that should work well together go wonky.
When it comes to love and romance, the implications are both delightful and perilous: a bit like a Venus flytrap. All else being equal, now is a good time to fall head over heels for a charming stranger. This of course is no guarantee that the charming stranger in question is the least bit good for you. On the other hand, sometimes an existing relationship requires a relatively excessive amount of forgiveness or compassion. If that’s the situation you find yourself in, Jupiter square Neptune could be pure gold.
On Monday, Venus enters Sagittarius. Venus in Scorpio was all serious and broody and perhaps a little jealous for its own good, but all of that is about to change. Venus in Sagittarius loves a good adventure, and Sagittarius in general is known for having a tendency to choose a good time over common sense. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Just remember that Venus in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and, as we established previously, Jupiter is not doing its clearest thinking right now. Thanks Neptune!
As is often the case, the results you get in your love life boil down to your communication skills, and there is some tough sledding that way this week. Mercury is undergoing two aspects this week that make thoughtful and wise communication a little harder than usual.
On Tuesday, Mercury square Mars is exact. This energy is a lot more at home with the idea of blurting out an insult or a hurtful comment than it is sticking to careful negotiations. Try to think through what you’re trying to say before you actually commit to the words you use.
On Sunday, Mercury conjunct Saturn is exact. If Mercury square Mars makes for ill communication, then Mercury conjunct Saturn holds the potential for unintentional relationship sabotage. If you want to fight for your right to make some noise, go right ahead: but you’ve been warned. It comes at the risk of misunderstandings of intergalactic proportions. So, hey ladies: figure out what’cha want before you ask someone to pass the mic.
