This is a big holiday week in the US, but the planets are telling Aquarians to hustle! Don’t worry, this isn’t about staying late at the office every night while your friends and family are at the beach or throwing a barbecue. Rather, the planets are telling you to get your act together, to become more productive and efficient. That’s because three planets—the Sun, Venus and Mercury—are all sequestered in your sixth house of efficiency.
This is a good time to analyze your daily routine and seek out the strengths and weaknesses within it. If you’re constantly oversleeping and rushing to work, sweating bullets because now you’re stuck in traffic and you know the boss is going to be pissed, it’s time for a serious talk with yourself about why you’re conducting your life in this manner. I used to be famous for waiting to exercise until about an hour before bedtime, which was stupid because it got me too riled up to fall asleep, I didn’t feel like doing it at that time of night, and frequently blew it off.
We all have quirks and routines that don’t serve us well, and the planets are telling you to get real and make changes. The good thing is that planets in your money houses are in a terrific angle this week, indicating that there is a financial payoff for getting more organized at work and at home. Consider your work flow, for instance. Do you have an e-mail account with 300 messages you’ve saved because you don’t know what to do with them? Is your desk a disaster area? Are you always working on projects at the last minute?
If that’s the case, get to work and make some changes. The new moon on Monday the 4th is perfect for kicking off a new cycle of productivity and getting things done. This includes a diet and exercise routine, by the way, as the sixth house also governs fitness and health. The 4th is an auspicious time to find a fitness buddy, someone whom you can count on to be at your door at 6 am, ready to jog.
Sunday and Tuesday are both beneficial for getting your home and office in order. The family budget should be examined and changes made for saving money. For example, do your kids really need every new electronic device that comes on the market? Do you absolutely have to have 537 cable channels? Should you be buying household supplies in bulk rather than piecemeal?
Despite the fact that it’s a slow business week in the US, your aspects for finding a new job (or promotion) are excellent, especially on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. In astrology, when you initiate things is of paramount importance. So even if you can’t go on a job interview on a Saturday for the obvious reasons, it’s still a good time to work on your resume or email contacts.
Just lay low on Thursday the 7th, a stinker of a day for all signs. If you are looking for new work you must keep it under wraps, as shadowy Pluto in your house of secrets is in a tough angle. Even that co-worker whom you swear you can trust needs to be kept out of the loop. This is also not the best day to launch the mother of all exercise regimens. Don’t go Iron Man, my friend. Take it slow and ease your way into physicality.
When the weekend comes, the passionate Moon glides into your house of sexuality and conjuncts Jupiter. Well, how can I say this? Jupiter is the planet of luck…so are you going to “get lucky” this weekend? The planets seem to think so!
