If your thinking has been fuzzy lately, you can blame it on planetary activity taking place in the house of the subconscious mind. To use an analogy, think about what happens when you decide to clean out a messy closet. Chances are that you just start pulling everything out and dump it in the center of the room, temporarily creating a bigger mess. Then as you sort through what needs to be tossed, placed somewhere else in the house or put back in the closet, things become neater.
That’s kind of what is going on in your brain right now. The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all active in the part of your chart that deals with your psyche and everything that’s attached to it: memories, emotions, fears, habits (good and bad), and goals. Old stuff is being dragged out for your review. Should it stay or go? Is it helpful to your journey through life, or is a detriment? Sometimes making decisions about these things can be as difficult as deciding what stuff needs to tossed from the closet!
That’s OK. The solar eclipse in Aquarius on Thursday will shed megawatts of light on this process. This is one of your best times in 2018 to clear away toxic clutter from your life, and that includes people. A beautiful Jupiter aspect the same day as the eclipse will encourage you to take risks and break away from old, worn-out images of yourself.
An unexpected job offer could come your way too, or something that could boost your income if you’re self-employed. You might get wind of this as early as Tuesday. Make sure that you don’t appear to be anxious or worse, desperate. That’s because there is some difficult energy that indicates that you’ll need to carefully consider any offers that come your way, and that can take time.
Likewise, don’t promise anything that you can’t deliver. You might want to wait until after Saturday to make a decision about anything that’s important, as that’s the day that intelligent, shrewd Mercury glides into your sign.
Valentine’s Day is right before the eclipse, and there could be some major changes afoot. Eclipses act quickly and usher us into the future, sometimes whether we like it or not. As the eclipse occurs in your house of endings, you could (a) walk away from an unhappy union, (b) end your days of being alone and single by meeting someone new, or (c) put a ring on it and end the “just dating” stage.
The good news is that your sense of self esteem should be rising as brilliant Uranus is determined to make you feel stronger and happier. You won’t be settling for second best. And why should you? The mighty Sun enters your sign next week, than it’s all about you!
