This week will keep us on our toes! The assertive energy of Mars, geared to external action, challenges the psychological probing urged by Pluto. You may experience a sense of subtle, relentless pressure if there are circumstances in your life that have passed the point of no return. This occurs on Wednesday but its effects will be felt all week.
Avoid involvement in power games, manipulation and passive-aggressive behaviour. Letting go – of a situation or person – may be the most appropriate thing to do if life starts to feel like a pressure-cooker.
Fortunately you may be able to see a particular situation from a new, expanded perspective, thanks to Mercury’s helpful links with both Uranus and Jupiter. These planetary influences will make it easier to see new possibilities for positive change. Mercury also interacts with Saturn, encouraging us to be sensible and realistic in our plans, actions and communication with others.
On Sunday Mercury joins the Sun in sensitive Pisces, helping us to reflect on the week’s activities with greater compassion and understanding.
As next week features a New Moon solar eclipse, it may be appropriate to wait until after the eclipse to start new projects and paths of action.
