When life doesn’t run smoothly…
Ever had the experience of pushing your loaded supermarket trolley to the carpark travellator only to discover that it’s broken? So you’re STUCK with masses of groceries, and no clue where the lift to the carpark is? Then you finally find the lift and exit, only to realise that you can’t find your car from this entry point? OMG, the frustration when something so banal becomes downright infuriating!!!…
And that’s kind of what the planetary energy is like this week. All the outer planets remain retrograde, Mars shifts into Libra (that’s the broken ramp) and the Sun opposes Neptune (that’s you lost in the shopping centre). On Friday Venus squares Saturn (thwarted wants) and the Sun trines Pluto (that’s the triumph when you finally find your car). Hang in there this week, sometimes these moments of irritation actually lead us to alternative ways of doing things, that can be quite revelatory.
IF YOU WERE BORN:
Virgo (Sep 13-19)
Early-week birthday people have a more optimistic but less disciplined year ahead. You might be feeling particularly gung-ho but possibly lacking in focus. Do your Virgo thing – write a list and try to stick to it. Birthday folks next weekend are asked to examine where their personal power lies, particularly in relation to relationships. You might have a sense of emotional detachment which helps you to really consider how you feel about people in your life. It’s a powerful year, enjoy!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 4)
With Mars entering Libra, you have the opportunity to seek both action and progress in life via a careful balance of both softness and strength. Sometimes considered to be the signature of passive aggressive behaviour, this is definitely Mars in a mellow form. Use it to find successful cooperation in close relationships. So if someone has been vexing you, this is the week to revisit the problem, using a fresh tactic of gentle persistence.
Scorpio (Oct 25 – Nov 3)
The chase is on this week. Something is luring you and you’re keen to follow your desires. This could be a person, a new home or just something pretty at the shops that you can’t really afford. Try to stop and have a think about whether this passion is in your best interest or if you’re being led wayward. It may feel like a crazy opportunity, but try to give yourself a reality check (and relax).
Capricorn (all of you)
The Moon is ruled by Saturn (your ruling planet) for most of this week. It mixes with a few tricky aspects, giving you a sense of emotional shakiness and a feeling of being disempowered. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try to take time out to reset. Controlling your mindset and direction is always possible, regardless of the circumstances.
Pisces (all of you)
You may be susceptible to feeling all of the erratic energies this week. There’s a swirling sense of fate and surprise, which doesn’t always make for a smooth vibe. On the flip side, quirky and spontaneous activities with friends or workmates should leave you feeling optimistic.
Leo (all of you)
A lack of direction leads to irritation this week and there’s nothing worse than a thwarted Leo! You’re an all-action group of folks so stay calm and hold tight until next weekend when you’ll be feeling far more back in control of yourself and your situation.
Have a great week!
(PS – No, I don’t cover each sign every week. Why? I focus on specifics, bringing less regular but more relevant info to each sign. If you’re not mentioned this week, be patient and enjoy the peace – your time will come 🙂 )
