De-frizz your soul on Wednesday when the Sun harmonises with Mercury. Make a special effort to shake off stress. If left unaddressed, something that’s been working its way under your skin could become a chronic problem. So, it’s best to confront the issue before it has a chance to fester. A quiet discussion may be all that’s needed to help you clear the air.
Monday’s new moon introduces you to a kindred spirit. This person will prove to be an asset to you, having your back when you need it most. Nurture this relationship by investing time in getting to know your new friend. Life is often bumpy, so having someone to help smooth the ride is vital to maintain your emotional and mental wellbeing.
Communicative Mercury collides with the Sun on Wednesday. And because your planetary ruler is in retrograde, a piece of information could easily crash and burn. You may believe you’ve detected a critical fact or uncovered a slippery secret. Still, the truth could actually be far from your grasp. If in doubt, hold off from voicing your suspicions. For now, silence is golden.
Have you missed something important, such as an anniversary, special milestone or an unfulfilled request? You may be innocently humming along, utterly ignorant that someone is seething beneath the surface. The good news is, the situation is easily reversible. Once you attend to the matter, your relationship will soar to new heights, and a greater level of trust can be gained.
You may need to lean on someone close this week, either financially or emotionally. Give in to accepting a helping hand or a sympathetic ear. You're a proud Lioness, but you’re not infallible. You may have to ask for what you need, and although that’s uncomfortable for you, your request will be met with warmth. Sometimes, the bravest thing to do is to surrender to that which you can't control.
Mercury’s still reversing through your relationship zone this week, so brace yourself for communication to be a bit muddled, and possibly, an outright argument to erupt out of nowhere. There is a guiding light, however. The Sun’s meet-up with Mercury brings relief on Wednesday when either you or your counterpart ‘gets it’. At the very least, you’ll understand each other’s perspectives.
Monday’s new moon pokes at your insecurities. You sense something is off but can’t quite put your finger on it. Trust that circumstances will unfold as they are meant to. Still, don’t ignore your gut feels. For now, delay voicing your concern until you’ve had a chance to go down the rabbit hole and assess the facts. Soon enough, you’ll have your answer.
You finally see a way through a predicament that’s had you stumped. If you’ve been lost in a mental maze, not knowing which way to turn, trust that the way forward becomes clear by mid-week. The Sun illuminates Mercury’s retrograde, providing you with a solution. Although, you might be disappointed if you were hoping for a quick fix. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Monday's gentle new moon breathes a breath of fresh air into your home life. Archers knee-deep in renovations or residential repairs find comfort in their refreshed surroundings. Life is a little more peaceful this week when a problematic member of your family becomes more cooperative. Don’t question why; enjoy the family harmony.
Pluto’s friction with Venus points out that we all have ugly truths hidden away in our closets. And occasionally, it’s healthy to look them squarely in the eye and acknowledge that your scars make you who you are. It can be challenging to find someone special that accepts you, warts and all. Still, that’s precisely the sort of unconditional love you should hold out for.
You're feeling fiercely private, thanks to Mars’ presence in your secret sphere. Usually, you’re a social butterfly, flitting from events and fabulous gatherings. Yet, this week you prefer your own company. Use time spent in solitude to reassess your short-term goals. You needn’t have the big picture all worked out. A fresh take on the next six months will do.
Take a leap of faith when Monday’s new moon glows in your sign. Refuse to allow insecurity or lack of self-confidence to hold you back. If you don’t at least try, you’ll never know. Perhaps you’ve been too shy to ask a hottie out on a date, put yourself up for a promotion or share a dream with your sweetheart. But now, it’s time to believe in yourself and go for gold.
