What will happen to your love life during Venus Retrograde March - April 2017

The Lovers - The Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot by The Baba Studio

Yesterday marks the beginning of Venus Retrograde until April, 15th 2017. It’s also the date when my ex is getting married. Uh oh.

Ever since I saw his invitation, I could only think of one thing: What will happen if someone gets married on Venus Retrograde? I’m sure it’s not going to be the main thing that determines the course of their marriage, but I hope everything is going to work between them. I love my ex like a brother, so I wish he gets the happy ending that he deserves.

It is when I start to freak out.

What will it mean to his new marriage and my current relationship then?

So here’s the thing. Venus is the planet of beauty, love, partnership, and money, which rules our two favorite star signs: Taurus and Libra (yes I’m a proud Libra!). When it goes retrograde, all of the aspects above will turn inward first, before stationing forward.

You might have the chance to battle your inner demons, meet a few people from the past, or even taking some time to contemplate before making a life-changing decision.

Armand Diaz wrote in his Integral Astrology blog that the general theme of Venus retrograde is the recognition of our values. It can be reassessing how we value ourselves or being reacquainted with something or someone of value.

This week, Venus stations retrograde while she’s in the individualist Aries, joining the reign of Uranus and Mars opposing Jupiter retrograde in Libra. It is when spontaneity and impulsive acts can bring drama to your romance. One of you might be tempted to find a release by eyeing on a cute coworker. And with Mars fuelled the fire, it’ll be a hard time to concede after a dispute, which brings the trust issue back into the game. 

From April 4th - 15th, Venus will once again return to the dreamy Pisces before it moves direct. With a square with Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius and a sextile with Mars in Taurus, it’ll be easier to kiss and makeup during this period. The chaos has been done. The stability and straightforwardness offered by Mars in Taurus, along with the self-awareness process by Saturn retrograde, will help to examine what went wrong and what we can do about it.

For couples, the Venus retrograde is the period for you to assess your deep-rooted problems and seek the win-win solution to strengthen your bond.

The Venus retrograde period generally doesn’t affect existing couples, so you don’t have to worry about it so much. It's usually the annoyance or existing issues that will arise to the surface, which requires teamwork by you two to make it through. Watch out for the Venus retrograde’s signature nostalgic memory, though. One of you may long for the one that got away, or suddenly reminiscing the beginning of your relationship. It’ll be a period where you long for a hopeless romantic story of your own. Anyway, just make sure no one’s hiding anything suspicious to keep the relationship intact.

Single and/or going to have a new relationship soon? If you can, you better hold off until Venus moves forward.

I asked Annabel Gat, the astrology writer for Broadly, about this and she said: “LOTS of people say Venus RX relationships can’t last, but I’ve seen otherwise. But certainly not an ideal time astrologically!” It’s true, though. Even those who have retrogrades on their natal chart (my boyfriend’s parents each has two on their charts!) can achieve great things despite the hindrance. They have to work twice as hard as the people with no retrogrades, but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. 

Couples who start on Venus retrograde, whether it’s a new relationship, engagement, or marriage, are more likely to be biased in their decision. Why?

It's because retrograde Venus seduces them with the fantasy of true love.

Everything will seem more magical when your new love is around. You won’t even see the red flag until you seal the deal. It’s an illusion that will happen to everyone, which spell can only break when Venus is moving direct again. But like I said, it doesn’t mean that the new relationship is going to fail. Once it moves forward, it will feel as if you’re waking up after a crazy Tinder date with makeup smearing all over your tired face, and a half-naked dude sleeping right beside you. You’ll wonder to yourself, “Where am I and what have I done?” But eventually, the choice is yours: whether you want to stay and have a brunch with him or go home for a morning walk of shame.

Venus retrograde is, in fact, the perfect time to shower yourself with self-love.

Instead of falling for exes who are not worth your time, you should use this period to take care of yourself and your heart too. Pamper yourself with a homemade bath bomb, try that new expensive lotion that you're always dying to have, or do a fun makeup tutorial when no one is around – as long as you don’t do something drastic, like planning for plastic surgery or changing your hairstyle.

All in all, don’t settle for someone so quick just because they’re cute to look at or because they float your boat with their charm. It should apply for ending a relationship too. Nothing good comes from a hasty decision. If you’re attached, remember that your relationship isn’t perfect, and the retrograde will bring the gunk out to the surface. But hey, consider this as a Family Feud quiz to see how far you two can win the game of life. As long as by the end of the retrograde you know how to value yourself, and you know who is worth your valuable time, you’re good. Stay safe, happy, and loved during Venus retrograde, everyone!

Full Moon in Scorpio: a challenge to balance the mind and the heart

full moon dark scorpio cloudy cloud

Tonight on April 22nd, expect a tug-o-war between your logic and your gut feeling as the Full Moon in Scorpio will be in opposite of the Sun in Taurus. The Taurus-Scorpio opposition highlights the topic of “illumination” and “balance" for any deep seated problems. Both star signs are fixed signs, which creates a tendency to overthink the smallest problem, while avoiding any chance to communicate your feelings. Any problems that you thought you had buried deeply may arise to give path to a settlement. Things may be unnerving and you may feel that you’re not ready to face it, but feelings must be expressed and cases must be solved, regardless of whether it’s the most socially accepted thing to do.

Another thing worth noting is to prepare for an unlikely pair of two contradicting needs. Given Scorpio’s tendency to initiate transformation and Taurus’ needs for stability, this combination includes a passion for a casual sex and a need for a secured relationship, which as we know, sounds too good to be true to take place on the same time. We may also want to revisit the way we communicate to others. Do you take some matters personally or are you level-headed enough to resolve things amicably? Ideally, this month’s Full Moon is a chance for us to balance our mind and our senses. As long as we know how to take a step back and understand how to use it in our favours, the Full Moon’s energy could reinforce a positive transformation in our lives.

To know which part of your life that requires a balance check, scroll down to see your predictions:


Capricorn

If you keep on getting worried about how your friends might view you, you won’t be able to enjoy the party. The Full Moon will challenge you to choose between friendship and the things that make you happy. If you ever have to choose, choose the latter. Don’t care about what others say, just walk away and enjoy this sunny day.


Aquarius

So many thoughts are spent in building your career, while your family begun to seem like distant relatives. Don’t be surprised if at the end of the week you'll hear more demands from them. If you can’t balance your timing, try to give small attention by letting them know that you’ve been doing well.


Pisces

This month’s Full Moon will help you to identify what’s been bothering you. It seems that you have been listening too much, without expressing your concern. It’s never a bad idea to talk things out. Sometimes the best solution comes from a healthy discussion.


Aries

With money as your main topic this week, see if you can give more effort to manage your financial situation. There may be some temptation to find an easier shortcut by borrowing friends’ or relatives’ money, however, it’s not the best option to follow through. Trust your intuition when it says that everything will work out fine.


Taurus

This Full Moon is your challenge to balance between your needs and your partner’s needs. Tension will arise when one does not feel of being heard or understood. You can choose to ignore it or to address it by giving a reassurance to your loved one. The Full Moon will help you to identify which one should come first.


Gemini

This is the period where you will be tested mentally, physically, and spiritually. There’s a great chance that trouble will come knocking on your door and you’ll be forced to question everything you believe. Things may not appear as it seems, but it’s your challenge to see through the veil. If anything, see what your intuition has to say to guide you through it.


Cancer

There are so many things that will your attention, Cancer! Not only you’ll have to juggle between your responsibility, you may also have to choose between a chance to enjoy your fun time and keeping up with your peers. The trick to balance it out is by letting everyone to enjoy themselves… together! While it does not seem feasible at times, but it’s the best win win solution, isn’t it?


Leo

Balancing between your work with your loved ones will not be easy during this period. Work for you has become futile but somebody needs to be the bread winner, right? Leo is a family man/woman, so what seems like a small problem is actually a big deal for you. What you need is a mood recharge this week. Spending time with your loved ones is proven to be the best medicine for you.


Virgo

With your Moon in your House of Communication, while your Sun is in your House of Knowledge, it can be a challenge to balance between what your senses are telling you with what you have learned to perceive so far. Sometimes it’s not easy to elaborate how you feel about certain things, but it’s always the best idea to communicate it with others.


Libra

You haven't run out of luck, only your ideas. When it comes to making money, your intuition tells you to do things alone, but your mind tells you not to. Have you thought about collaborating with someone for your work? The more people you work with the higher the chances for you to gain more profit.


Scorpio

The Moon in your First House brings into focus how speaking out about how you feel matters more in your relationship. No agreement will be made until your partner understands what you’re going through. Disagreements are inevitable, but disagreements are just a way of strengthening the bond between you and your partner.


Sagittarius

You won’t be able to see what the world has to offer if you choose to bury yourself in work. Somewhere deep inside you, your intuition is kicking in, yearning for a place called home. If possible, find some time during the weekend to travel and come home to the nature. Give yourself a chance to get to know yourself while being surrounded by lush greeneries.

this week in AstroFox: April 4th - 10th 2016

Will Fuller - Unsplash.jpeg

This week’s chart brings to focus how our past actions will eventually come back and catch our tongue. Use this opportunity to pay attention and be mindful of what you say or do. But don’t forget to take a chance on love while you can!

Saturn in Retrogade
Saturn is in retrogade all week until August 13th, which gives us a reality check to be responsible in certain aspects according to which house the Saturn is located. If the Saturn is located in your 7th House and you haven’t paid much attention to someone you love, Saturn will ensure we give enough attention through hardships or relationship fallouts. Saturn is a karmic planet. Its focus revolves around responsibility, self-discipline, and respect. We will be tested to take extra responsibility during this period. It may be hard and frustrating at times, but I can assure you that the lesson will be valuable.

Mercury to Taurus and Venus to Aries
This Wednesday onwards, expect the communication flow between you and your peers or colleagues to be slow, careful, but logical, while your love life takes a daring turn when Mercury and Venus makes their transit concurrently. Taurus is a stubborn and decisive sign but they take such long process to get to their point as everything needs to be concise and aligned with their message. On the other hand, with Venus heading towards Aries this Wednesday, the vibe will help you to go bold, up-front, and impulsive with your feelings. Aries people don’t have time to sit and wait. They do what their heart tells them and they say what they think. Get ready to catch their adventurous energy this Wednesday!

 

Aries ♈️

General
Try to move faster than the light, Aries! This week, several opportunities are heading your way but you seem to be distracted to choose the one that suits your needs. There’s no time to think as the Sun is moving closer towards Uranus, the planet of luck for career and creativity. The Sun will be in 0 degrees of Uranus this Sunday so take your chance before it moves past right before your eyes!

Career - Money - Health
This week you are going to be showered with career opportunities as a reward for your relentless effort. You can always pat yourself in the back later, because right now you need to focus on your health more. Saturn in Conjunction with Mars and trine with both Sun and Uranus shows your passion for work along with the luck that comes with it. However, the square with Jupiter in your 6th House indicates health problem that you need to pay attention to. Work hard, but don’t forget to rest hard!

Love (Single)
With the Sun in your 1st House, you still have that sun shining confidence until it shifts to Taurus. The trine with Saturn in your 9th House gives you the benefit of being picky in making new contacts. Watch out for some people who are trying to take advantage of you.

Love (In A Relationship)
Venus is heading towards Aries this Wednesday, just in time to be in conjunction with the Moon in your 12th House. This makes Wednesday the perfect day to have a date night at home to talk about where this relationship is going. You may want to discuss about how things are going to pan out in the next few months.

 

Taurus ♉️

General
This week, most Taureans are not in the mood to be involved in conflict and disagreements. With Venus shifts to your 12th House to be with your Sun and Moon this Thursday, your focus veers to what you could have done better to accommodate your needs. This is the time to treat yourself with respect and love. Conflicts would not help you in finding that missing piece of your soul, so don’t waste too much time meddling in it.

Career - Money - Health
If it’s too good to be true, then it’s probably not a good idea to pursue it. With Saturn in retrograde in your 8th House, it’s time for you to be careful in making any decisions that involves another person or business entity in your work. Use this Wednesday’s opportunity when Mercury arrives in your 1st House. You need all the luck in communicating your thoughts to be able to see the light. It’s really tough to see behind all those glitters, I know, but it’s worth a try.

Love (Single)
This week, take some time for yourself to be completely in love. To love and be in love does not negate who you are as an individual. Sometimes it completes you, like how milk complements your coffee. With Sun in your 12th House while in square with Pluto in 9th House, falling in love seems like a bad and scary idea at times. But hey, so does learning to drive a car and sipping your first glass of beer right?

Love (In A Relationship)
Everything you throw to the Universe, will get back to you at some point in your life. Sometimes they knock on your door gently, sometimes they just tear the whole wall down. Venus is moving towards to your 12th House this Wednesday, so this week is one of those days where it’s very important for you to pay attention to how you treat your partner. Be sensitive and listen to them when they need you the most, or else.

 

Gemini ♊️

General
Staying motivated in pursuing your wish/dream is something that you should do despite the fact that things go wrong once in a while. There’s no room for disappointment this week as you need to shift your focus immediately to something more important. Mercury in conjunct with Moon on Friday and Saturday may bring some melancholic mood, but don’t worry, Moon’s trine with Jupiter and Pluto will snap you back into reality as quick as a flash.

Career - Money - Health
Although Gemini is known for its strength in multitasking, there’s no time for you to juggle too many things at once because this week leaves you exhausted. Saturn in Retrogade in your 7th House while in square with Jupiter in 4th House compels you to pay attention to your work life balance. Recharge yourself by coming home to your loved ones to keep you focused.

Love (Single)
You’re almost there, you just need a little bit more effort before you seal the deal. They have reciprocated to your feelings, so it won’t take long to finally be in their arms. For those who haven’t found anyone, weekend will be a great point to start your search. The Sun is moving towards 0 degree with Uranus in your 11th House, so look around in your circle of friends for a good luck in love.

Love (In A Relationship)
You got a good thing going in your relationship this week. Without a doubt, your attention to little things is finally paid off. With Mars and Saturn in your 7th House, you know exactly what ticks your partner, and you try to avoid doing it as much as possible. Good call!

 

Cancer ♋️

General
As a typical Cancer, it’s not enough for you to worry about yourself, you always carry the world’s problem on your shoulder as well. The Universe will ensure you get the message this week. The Moon will be in square with Saturn in retrograde on Tuesday to remind you of how important you are. Your health (or you in general) is much more important than their problem, so try not to over think what others are going through. Simply put, their problem is not (always) your problem.

Career - Money - Health
With your career going uphill this week, so do the obstacles that are coming your way. Saturn is in retrograde in your 6th House, so expect a very ‘enlightening’ talk with your boss about how you can step up the quality of your work for the company. Not to mention giving up more of your personal time for late night shifts. Use the energy of Saturn’s current neighbour, Mars, to negotiate with your superior.

Love (Single)
You can’t accomplish anything without putting much effort. Right now, everything is going smooth, but you found yourself lost in the process already. No wonder, the Sun is in square with Pluto in your 7th House, so moving further beyond this point is a little bit tough. All you have to do is arrange a nice dinner with a seemingly effortless smooth talk (which isn’t easy, I know).

Love (In A Relationship)
This week, your relationship requires a little bit more understanding about each other. With Venus shifting to your 10th House and Pluto sitting in your 7th House, it’s unlikely for you to be able to understand your partner’s feelings. It seems disconnected at times, but it’s not the end of the world. The only way you can get through this is by communicating with them openly. 

 

Leo ♌️

General
Leos are well known for their big ego, so it’s not surprising that this week you feel the urge to feed your ego by basking in everyone’s attention. The Sun is in your 9th House, so small imperfections will irk you, but for reasonable reasons. Be careful of the way you deliver suggestions, because you’re not the only one with strong opinion. Your attitude, although meant well, may rub some people the wrong way. 

Career - Money - Health
Going strong, Leos! Career won’t be a problem for you as the Saturn sits in your 5th House while in trine with both Sun and Uranus this week. You manage to find the balance between work and play, thus, thinking out of the box becomes natural for you. Your health will cooperate with you as Mercury shifts to your 10th House this Wednesday. Keep it up!

Love (Single)
Not a single women or men can resist your charm this week. You may not be the best of everything but your confidence and eloquent manner shines through and you start to get noticed. You may be tempted to use this opportunity to break some hearts, but be careful because retrograde Saturn in your 5th House will make sure you don’t cross that line.

Love (In A Relationship)
Jealousy is a double edged sword. It can either strengthen your relationship or break it. In this case, if you feel jealous or possessive of your loved ones, take it as your instinct coming to play. You don’t want to lose them, which is completely understandable. As long as you don’t tighten your grip and leave them suffocated, this possessive traits of yours will not be of a problem for now.

 

Virgo ♍️

General
Not watering your crops won’t make them grow on their own, it will only make them wither and die. It means, you won’t get what you want unless you do something about it. Jupiter has been positioned in your 1st House, so it’s safe to say that your luck won’t run out so soon. However, due to the square aspect with Sagittarius on your 4th House, you may be unable to leave your comfort zone to look for new opportunities. Be brave and bold, or the only one who will ruin your chance is yourself. 

Career - Money - Health
Your career or work life is moving slow but steady as Saturn is in retrograde in your 4th House. You start gaining recognition among your small circle and you’re happy with what you achieve right now. Cherish this moment because it’s highly unusual for Virgos to be content with simple joy (yes, I’m a Virgo Ascendant hence why this sounds about right).

Love (Single)
Pluto in your 5th House indicates that love is not your first priority because you are more concern with how you can finally be comfortable with yourself. With Pluto in square with Sun and Uranus, it feels as if you lost your confident self throughout this week. But don’t worry, once you find the hook, you will be out there and about in no time.

Love (In A Relationship)
You don’t always have to go through things alone when you have someone who loves you by your side. With Neptune and Venus situated right at the opposite of Jupiter in your 1st House, it may be a bit difficult for you to share things with your loved ones right now. But trust me, they will still be your biggest supporter no matter what. Don’t worry be happy, Virgos!

 

Libra ♎️

General
Things are fluctuating and relatively unstable for you this week, but you seem to find the silver lining in every misfortune you see. Your ability to see the bigger picture makes you realise how everything is interconnected and how you are just a tiny pawn in a bigger scheme. During this Saturn retrograde, see if you can be surrounded by truth tellers as it will help you to release the knots in your Throat Chakra.

Career - Money - Health
The prospect of your career is connected to the people you meet and how fast you can catch the opportunity. Don’t waste your time making connection with people who will not be any useful in helping you grow. At the same time, do not make new enemies. You don’t need to have someone trying to pull you down when you’re busy climbing the mountain.

Love (Single)
The more you continue to be this happy, the more hearts you’ll break! Don’t worry about not making connection you want when you’re actually making enough connection with everyone. The good news is, you have a lot of options to go with this week. But the bad news is, you can’t really decide which one. So be quick and make it count!

Love (In A Relationship)
With both of you trying to make things work in other aspects, less energy is channeled into keeping the sparks alive. Venus will arrive in your 7th House this Wednesday to help you get the romance back in the bedroom, so use that opportunity to be comfortable in each other’s arms again.

 

Scorpio ♏️

General
Without the stability to sustain your life, you seem to be out of balance lately. Your respective planet, Pluto, is in square with Sun and Uranus in your 6th House this week, demonstrating how this instability is affecting your self-confidence and your creativity. You need to find some alone time to figure out your purpose. Sometimes the best answer comes in silence.

Career - Money - Health
With Saturn in retrograde on your 2nd House, you will be given a lot of opportunity to grow in your money-making career. But this comes with a catch. The money that you make may have to be sacrificed for your own happiness, or for the happiness of others. Remember, money will not bring you happiness unless you choose so. Therefore, do what’s right according to your heart.

Love (Single)
Single Scorpios would not last a chance until you find the courage to speak up your mind. As soon as Venus leaves your 5th House this Wednesday, you immediately go back to hermit mode. Find the balance between your extrovert and introvert traits before you decide to go on dates and you’ll do great.

Love (In A Relationship)
Although there’s a certain level of comfort between you and your partner, seems that this week would not be the best time to start an argument as both of you are in need of support. Thankfully the smart and witty Mercury is coming to the rescue this Wednesday to help you fix this issue. Expect a spontaneous yet heartwarming moment this Saturday when the Moon arrives in your 7th House.

 

Sagittarius ♐️

General
Not a single soul can stop you from chasing your dreams as long as Mars and retrograde Saturn are positioned in your 1st House. It’s a great initiative but be mindful of the jealous eyes. Don’t flaunt your luck everywhere you go and certainly don’t drive yourself too fast or you’ll hit the door. You can always go steady and calculate your steps. It can save you a lot of pain in the long run.

Career - Money - Health
Career may be your main motive this week, but do not underestimate the power of listening. With Saturn in trine with Sun and Uranus, it’s very easy to dismiss other’s opinion that may be beneficial for you because as an independent Sagittarius you have always survived alone anyway. But trust me, this time it’s best to take their suggestion into consideration.

Love (Single)
The Sun and Venus in your 5th House help you to get a little bit of extra confidence to take major bold steps on your love pursuit. You’re fine on your own and you are enjoying this pursuit as it goes. However, don’t forget that it always takes two to tango. What’s best for you may not be the best for your crush, so, practice a lot of compromising to keep them in your arms.

Love (In A Relationship)
Find solace in your loved one as you brace yourself for a struggle to come. They may be unable to give you the full physical support that you need, but their words, love, and kindness, are strong enough to get you back on your feet.

 

Capricorn ♑️

General
To find the best possible solution to your problem requires some minor adjustments on your side. With Pluto in your 1st House and Saturn in retrogade in your 12th House, it won’t take long until you see the bigger picture to find the answer. Remember, you can always choose a different path whenever your heart tells you to.

Career - Money - Health
You can’t always understand what your colleagues are trying to say, but you always try to make up for it. Saturn is in square with Jupiter in the 9th House, so it’s possible that everything is just a matter of miscommunication. You have the talents, just not enough time to decode everything. Don’t worry, everyone always has something to learn from their mistakes.

Love (Single)
Chances are called ‘chances’ because they don’t happen everyday. This Wednesday, don’t miss the arrival of Mercury in your 5th House to give you the charm and wit to help you prevail. After that, things will go smooth sailing on your side so use this opportunity to finally get things going.

Love (In A Relationship)
New things are unfolding and you are excited to find out what’s next. But be careful of your steps as your curiosity may cause you to step on a bear trap as we speak. Use this opportunity to stop assuming and find the truth directly from them instead.

 

Aquarius ♒️

General
This week brings into focus a lot of questions about yourself, particularly about spirituality and how you plays a part as a microcosm in this Universe. Pluto is in your 12th House while in square with Sun and your respective planet, Uranus, so no wonder if you feel a little bit lost and confused. However, the answer that you’re looking for has always been within yourself. All you need to do is to sit still and listen to your soul.

Career - Money - Health
Although you’re more interested in doing things your way, your luck for career this week lies on collaboration or partnership with your colleagues / peers in your network. Saturn in retrograde is sitting in your 11th House, which explains why it will be tougher to shine on your own. See if you can appreciate their help by asking them out for dinner or drinks. It’s social time!

Love (Single)     
For a change, try to find your love within your close circle of friends. The Sun might be located in your 3rd House, but its square with Pluto seems to be holding things back in this futile attempt. Look at the bright side, you don’t have to get out of your comfort zone to flirt with someone at least, right?

Love (In A Relationship)
Some things are easier said than done. For you, no time should be wasted to try harder because you have done your best. For them, your initial effort itself is not enough and there’s always room for improvement. This week, see if you can find the right balance between your expectation and theirs by talking things through.

 

Pisces

General
This is the right time for you to put your intuitive ability into use! Your respective planet, Neptune is in your 1st House, so it’s easy to understand why things will work out better for you if your intuition comes into play. It may not work with everyone though, as the location of your Neptune is opposite Jupiter, the planet of knowledge, in your 7th House. But don’t worry, your intuition will lead you to be with the right people throughout your journey.

Career - Money - Health
Work life balance is something you’ve been yearning for, but sadly there’s not enough time for it right now. The retrogade Saturn stays in your 10th House so career seems to be doing well for you. It gave you the worldly material that you need, but it seems to have kept you unnecessary busy. Take short breaks when you need to and keep yourself hydrated.

Love (Single)
To keep things afloat between you and your crush, there needs to be a deeper understanding about how each other feels. Both of you need to be able to be each other’s strength when needed. This will help to strengthen your bond and passion in the long run.

Love (In A Relationship)
With Jupiter in your 7th House and Venus in your 1st House, things may shake a bit through conflict to open another layer of your relationship. Minor disagreements are one of the few. I see that there’s nothing major that can change how you feel about them. The best thing you can do is to patch that wound with love and kisses and keep your Satur-date night on.

this week in AstroFox: march 28th - april 3rd 2016

blue sky mountain cloud

A few exciting things are happening this week. The moon is in transit in Sagittarius between Monday to Wednesday, giving you a prideful feeling of being the most knowledgeable of all. Close the weekday with a bang as the moon hops through Capricorn on Thursday and Friday, giving you a sense of responsibility and wisdom. On the weekend, look to enjoy the moon’s energy in Aquarius by giving yourself that me-time you’ve been craving for.

This week also brings into focus how you communicate and relate with others. Don’t miss the energy of the Sun in conjunct with Mercury, this planet of communication and health is deeply influenced by the outer planets from Tuesday to Thursday. I’d like to call this “The Mercury Affair” for this week’s report. With the help of Uranus, the planet of information and higher truths, your communication style should be able to better convey your actual meaning. This doesn't mean direct truths though, as the Mercury trine with Saturn gives you the ability to be diplomatic with others. Watch your words well, because it can be mistaken as an invitation for arguments. Mercury in square with Pluto often breaks relationships due to lack of communication. So make sure you’re not one of those unlucky people this week!


Aries

General
This week, shift your focus in spreading love for others and to end a recurring bad cycle of getting involved in arguments. With a combination of Uranus and Mercury in your star sign, you will have an urge to prove your point. However, be careful of Mercury’s trine with Saturn and Square with Pluto from Tuesday to Thursday. You may hurt the people you love with your brutally honest words.

With Mercury in trine with Saturn this week, your career will get the opportunity to step up only if you make your voice heard. Patience is the best key, but don’t take too long in sitting on the problem. There will be no money problem this week, but watch out for your health because Jupiter in trine with Pluto on your House of Health can tempt you to eat carelessly.

Love (Single)
Nothing will ever be truly in our favour if we refuse to balance it. This week you really don't want to be bothered with all the drama that comes with falling for someone else. Especially between Monday to Wednesday, where the influence of Uranus is strong in your houses. Time to take a break to focus on things that really matters to you right now.

Love (In A Relationship)
For attached Aries, recently you long for tenderness to resurface in your relationship. You have reached a comfortable level where there’s no conflict, but the warmth is nowhere to be found at the same time. All you need is a reassurance that love still drives your boat. Communicate your worries when the Moon sits in Capricorn this Thursday. It will be tough to agree to everything, but at least you try to make things work again.

 

Taurus ♉️

General
Although you spend most of your time being logical and mildly obsessed with worldly possessions, you can’t be bothered to give it a priority at the moment. Your focus is in human relationships as Venus sits in your House of Friendship this week. You want to be there for your friends, lending them a hand as much as you can. Hopefully this great initiative ends with you gaining a sweet new layer of friendship.

Career - Money - Health
With Saturn in square with Jupiter throughout the week, you will experience some conflict and obstacles in the work place, particularly with your superiors (it can be the boss or a client). As the moon frolics around your Saturn on Tuesday and Wednesday, you may take this obstacle as an attack on you personally, which lowers your self confidence. But don’t worry, your colleagues will give you the support you need during trying times between Tuesday to Thursday. 

Love (Single)
There’s too much speculation in your head about what happened and what will happen in the future. Mercury is in square with Pluto in your 12th House until Friday, so it’s normal for you to be very careful in how you communicate because you don’t want them to stray away. Let go of your worries and you’ll find the way to make room for love.

Love (In A Relationship)
The neighbours’ grass seems greener than yours, but it doesn’t mean that their grass will grow as green in your yard too. Don’t wish for other things just because you feel that your relationship is too stagnant to function. Boredom is normal, soon enough you’ll find a way to get out of it together. 

 

Gemini ♊️

General
This week is an intense week for you as Mercury is in multiple affairs with other planets! One thing for sure is that you'll have to take things a lot seriously to seize new opportunities. As of now, Mercury in trine with Saturn from Tuesday to Thursday encourages you to see things from a bigger perspective while squaring with Pluto forces you to leave things behind. So the question is, are you ready to make that difficult decision yet? 

Career - Money - Health
With Saturn inhabiting your 7th House and Venus occupying Saturn’s 10th House, your career life is blessed by the opportunity of a mutually beneficial partnership this week. Not so much luck in increasing your reputation among others, but this partnership will result in new variations of creative ideas thrown across the meeting room.

Love (Single)
So close, yet so far. You have tried so much but how come it always doesn’t seem to work out? The Sun in conjunct with Uranus and Mercury this week seems to boost your confidence, but keeps you out of touch with your heart. Channel your inner lover this Monday to Wednesday when the moon transits on your 7th House and see if they’re finally taking your call. Best of luck!

Love (In A Relationship)
Moon is coming to your 7th House this Monday to Wednesday so expect a romantic night together. While Mars’ influence brings out your opinionated nature, the Saturn conjunction helps you to balance the way you communicate with your partner. Expect  a fiery passionate week in your relationship, if you know what I mean. ;)

 

Cancer ♋️

General
This week, you feel like you’ve had enough in carrying someone else’s burdens or expectations towards you. No more Mr/Mrs Nice Cancer as Saturn and Mars are in control of your 6th House. From Monday to Wednesday, you are more focused on your mental health as the moon is transiting at your House of Health. No stress can get into you, and you have all the right to be selfish. After getting the love and support you need between Thursday to Friday, it’s time to declutter on the weekend. Note down the things that stresses you and take action. It’s the only way you can find peace of mind.

Career - Money - Health
As Mercury along with its “affairs” sits on your 10th House, you suddenly morph into a working powerhouse. With the help of the Sun and Uranus on the side, you are ready to brace the challenges. Sometimes you feel like you’ve had enough with the criticisms, but you are confident enough this week to hold your head high and move on. 

Love (Single)
In order to find the right one, you have to be fully in love with yourself first. This is exactly what you’ve been practicing this week, Cancer. The art of self love is as important as loving someone else. Your motto this week, “If you can’t love yourself, who will?"

Love (In A Relationship)
Emotional upheaval in a relationship is inevitable, especially for the perpetually emotional Cancer. This Friday, the Moon in your 7th House together with Pluto gives you the time you need to reflect and sort things out. 

 

Leo ♌️

General
The Sun is currently in conjunct with The Mercury Affair in your 9th house, keeping you confident in words and ideas. People look up to you for advice whether you like it or not and it does help in stroking your lioness ego. Use this opportunity to help and guide others, who are not as lucky as you, to find their way. Leo’s planetary ruler is the Sun, which explains why everyone is drawn towards you for wisdom.

Career - Money - Health
This week, your planet of career, Saturn, is in square with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion. It keeps you from getting enough recognition for your good hard work. For a Leo, this would be a big problem as personal recognition is something that you value the most. Keep it low for now and continue to strive for the best. You may reap the fruit of your labour in the next few weeks.

Love (Single)
With moon hopping through your 5th House from Monday to Wednesday together with Mars and Saturn, expect a very ambitious yet passionate love pursuit. Your emotion gets in the way occasionally, so pay attention to how your crush will feel about it. One advice, don’t move hastily. We all know how rejection feels like and trust me, you really don’t wanna get any this week.

Love (In A Relationship)
For Leos who already got their heart set, this weekend is a great time to discuss about the future with your significant other. While the moon transits on your 7th House this weekend, at the same time it creates a beautiful sextile with Saturn, Sun, Mercury, and Uranus. Although you shouldn’t make any decision so quick yet, it’s a nice day to chat about how you two can plan a spontaneous trip to Mexico or flying to Thailand for their signature cricket crackers.

 

Virgo ♍️

General
Virgo is the king/queen of perfectionism and multitasking, but this time you are exhausted of having to figure out everything by yourself. Although The Mercury Affair keeps your planetary ruler to be in trine with Saturn the ambitious, the Pluto’s influence grows stronger on you. Pluto is a transformative planet and usually gets in the way for healing purposes. This week, try to listen to your what your heart wants. It may be tough because Virgo’s mind is always busy, but it will be for the best.

Career - Money - Health
Even though your career is going up this week, you don’t really feel like you belong in the team anymore. Sometimes you feel as if your confidence self has gone on vacation when you need them the most. Saturn in square with Jupiter in your 1st House gives you a sense of feeling lost. Don’t worry, this only lasts temporary. See if you can recover yourself both physically and mentally and you’ll get back on your feet in no time.

Love (Single)
You are more attuned with your sensitive side as the Moon flies through Sagittarius between Monday and Wednesday. Not only does this give you the advantage of attracting your crush by exhibiting your vulnerable side, it also preps you to take frisky actions on Thursday and Friday. That’s when the Moon is in conjunction with Pluto,  forcing you to end your stagnant relationship status. Time to go steady!

Love (In A Relationship)
With Venus and Neptune occupying your 7th House, there’s no other sign as loving and understanding as a Virgo this week. You seem to understand your partner without them having to convince you of anything. 

 

Libra ♎️

General
Everything in your life seems to be moving in fast forward recently. With Mercury occupying your 7th House while your respective planet, Venus, occupying Mercury’s 6th House, you are on top of your networking game this week. You are eager to build relationship with others without any shy or wishy washy prep talk. This week is the best week to just hop in the bus and say, “Hey, I’m Libra. How are you?"

Career - Money - Health
Not to give you any scare or anything, but your career will not move forward if you don’t give yourself a chance to go out there and tell them who you are. The only block that you’ll have is a square with Jupiter in your 12th House, which is all the made up scenario you have in your head. Nothing really comes true unless you actually try it. 

Love (Single)
With the Sun stepping into your 7th House along with Mercury and Uranus, you are confident that you have found the right person and you have all the tricks under the sleeves ready for desperate times. You’re not worried that they’re going to leave you for someone else, because you know you’re irresistible for them. Yet even if they do, you’re fine being on your own anyway.

Love (In A Relationship)
This week, your constant argument with your loved one has finally slowed down as you are beginning to understand each other better. The Sun, Mercury, and Uranus are lingering in your 7th House, so you have the upper hand in expressing what you want without having to lead to an argument. Your partner can be really irritating, yet you’ll still love them anyway.

 

Scorpio ♏️

General
As Pluto, your respective planet, sits in your 3rd House, you find yourself unable to tolerate all the liars, bigots, and cheaters whenever you find one. Although it gives you the opportunity to meet the like minded people, it does give you the headache just intensely thinking about it. Pluto in square with both Uranus and Mercury in your 6th House indicates a possibility of health deteriorating due to the inability to clearly communicate this obsession. As much as possible, don’t lose your cool, okay?

Career - Money - Health
Great news for Scorpio this week! The Saturn is currently sitting in your 2nd House, boosting your finance through your work and career. The only obstacle you have is balancing between your work and your friendship due to the square aspect between Saturn and Jupiter in your 11th House. Bad news for business owner / freelancer Scorpios. Your friends may be interested to hire you, but most likely they will ask for “friend’s price”. If you can surpass this, they will recommend you to their extended network though. So good luck in making the decision!

Love (Single)
The moment you start thinking about love, the more you feel the L word shivering down your spine. Venus may be occupying your 5th House, but your Sun in 6th House has a stronger impact on your self confidence. Since you’ve been using a lot more of your brain this week, you find yourself becoming nervous when sliding into the heart's territory. Just remember that love is not only about the equal amount of take and give, it’s about doing what’s right for both.

Love (In A Relationship)
It’s been a tough week but you’re so glad that you finally get that mutual understanding with your partner. The world starts to open up again and your relationship feels refreshed. Give more of your time for the couple quality time and enjoy this peaceful week without having to worry about another argument.

 

Sagittarius ♐️

General
With Jupiter in your 10th House whilst in square with Sagittarius in your 1st House, you find that restrictions and rules in no way benefits you. Added with trine aspect with Pluto, this puts you in a position where you start to question everything. There’s an urge to rebel, to make a difference, to go against the status quo. However, to understand how the world works, you must understand that you don’t have to solve everything. Sometimes the answer to your question can be no answer at all.

Career - Money - Health
Although your career is doing alright since Jupiter is nicely positioned in your 10th House, you need to be careful of how you manage your finances. Money seems to be flowing in and out really easy. Whichever house the Pluto is located at helps you to see which area in your life that needs to be improved. In this case, the existence of Pluto in your 2nd House indicates that it’s time to put an end to reckless finance management.

Love (Single)
Single Sagittarius have more luck in attracting new prospects than other signs this week (or until next month) as the Sun is inhabiting Aries in your 5th House. With the help of Mercury and Uranus, you’ll get back in the dating scene in no time. Uranus' strong, carefree energy has influenced you to stay in the ‘no strings attached’ area. So far it’s safer for you to stay away from the drama and potential heartbreaks.

Love (In A Relationship)
Letting go of your worries is easier to be said than done. But at some point, you need to address what’s been bothering you because it’s starting to affect your loved ones as well. There’s a feeling of incapability of making them happy, along with the uneasiness thinking about the prospect of not being able to fulfil it. You’ve been doing great so far. Don’t let your own obsession tells you otherwise.

 

Capricorn ♑️

General
With Saturn located in your 12th House while in square with Jupiter in the 9th House, your focus this week has shifted to how you can improve yourself as a person. You feel like you haven’t done much for the people around you and you can’t help but to compare yourself with some of your more successful friends. In reality, we are walking our own path individually. Your journey may take longer than others, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t go as far.

Career - Money - Health
Keeping yourself busy with work helps you to find yourself again in the process. Some events that happened in your workplace revealed some of your true nature and will help to set your future goal. Your only obstacle now is your ambition to keep the process shorter as Mars is sitting closely to your Saturn. Sometimes things take slow to get you ease into it. Just relax and let the Universe does its job.

Love (Single)
It’s not easy to stay in your current position without wondering where to go next. But right now, the best way to keep things going is by staying where you are. Do not expect your crush to come up with an answer, as the best answer is the one that can be understood without words.

Love (In A Relationship)
If you start to question about love, the more questionable your love is going to be. This week, your Venus is deeply influenced by the position of the curious cat Jupiter in your 9th House. All you want is a reassurance that all will end in a happy ending. But how would you know how it ends if you don’t take control of your narrative?

 

Aquarius ♒️

General
As your Uranus turns square with Pluto in 12th House this week, you will encounter several events that makes you question your decision in life. If you’re not sure where to process from there, you can use the combined energy of Mercury and Sun this week to keep you out of making wrong decisions. The Moon will also go home to your 1st House this weekend, which helps to bolster your intuition during this trying time.

Career - Money - Health
When it comes to work and career, Aquarius always knows how to work independently, without being affected by what other people are saying. But this time, reach out to your colleagues to help you with your work. Currently, the best individual strength for you is the one that is built from collective effort. Do not hesitate to ask around.

Love (Single)
To love is to give your 100% when needed and to give less when the other one is in charge. There should be a balance between both, instead of leaning towards to one side only. Although you are confident that you are doing this for the right reasons, pay attention to The Mercury Affair’s trine with Saturn and square with Pluto. Time to reassess how you express your concern with your crush because there’s a strong possibility that both friends will continue to stay as friends.

Love (In A Relationship)
Maintaining a relationship starts to come off as a hard work for you, particularly on Wednesday, and you wish that things go a little bit easier on your part. Aquarius may seem nonchalant, but in reality, they can be very invested in their relationship. I guess this time you have to leave the small details behind and focus on what makes both of you happy. Take a short walk on the park, find some time to relax together, and you won’t find yourself entangled in it anymore.

 

Pisces ♓️

General
Don’t be too hard on yourself, Pisces! It’s a great news whenever a planetary ruler finds itself in their respective house, such as Neptune that comes home with Venus to your 1st House. However, this causes you to be in a retrospective mood, specifically in love. The moon transit in your 12th House this weekend also forces you to remember some things in the past. It may be things that you may not be fond of, but it’s important to face it in order to end a bad cycle.

Career - Money - Health
With the help of Sun, Mercury, and Uranus, on your House of Wealth, this week money seems to pop up everywhere you look. You have a keen eye to see business opportunities during this period. Use this wisely. See if you can embrace those people who are jealous with your luck. Keep them by your side and see what happens next.

Love (Single)
This week, love pursuits is not really your main priority as you are busy in satisfying your physical self. With your Sun in 2nd House in trine with Mars in 10th House, you don’t see building relationship is as important as physical pleasure. Just don’t get caught in problem caused by misinterpreted signals. 

Love (In A Relationship)
Venus has found its way to the Pisceans’ 1st House thus despite your current relationship state, you can’t help but to feel like you are not worth their time. Like your General reading, it’s the retrospective mood in play. I’m sure that your self-created guilt is not the actual reality. However, since Jupiter is currently ruling your 7th House, it’s best to talk this openly with your significant other to ease your worries.
