Touchy-feely? This week is all about getting in touch with your emotions, which some people enjoy and yet makes others sweat. This will result is some boundary-setting, to be sure, but it’s necessary. The planets demand it!
And you’ll get a good glimpse of what this means as a solar eclipse occurs in your nurturing fourth house on Friday. This is a new moon, which means that fresh beginnings can take place, specifically with the people you love and your home environment.
So if you’ve been thinking about moving, remodeling or redecorating, start drawing up your plans. Eclipses can speed things up in ways that you might not expect. For example, let’s say you’re thinking about putting your house on the market. You assume it will take forever to sell and that you’ll have plenty of time to find a new home.
Guess again. This eclipse could make transactions move more rapidly, and you may end up feeling crunched for time. Or someone could offer you a new job, but with the condition that you need to relocate–and they want an answer now.
Try to wrap up negotiations involving housing and family, like custody agreements and wills, before Tuesday when Mercury goes retrograde. If you can’t, then expect some delays over the next three weeks. But these can help you, as you’ll have time to renegotiate terms to your liking.
Monday is a super day to resolve family matters with a happy Mercury-Venus conjunction. And even if you’re single and don’t have to deal with too much family stuff, this is an excellent time to just start feeling better about yourself. We all have baggage from our past, whether our siblings, parents, neighbors or teachers dumped it on us.
With this week’s cosmic energy, it’s time to release and heal, and Mercury going retrograde can help you with that. Getting rid of the nyah-nyah stuff is key, because lovely Venus sashays into your house of romance and fun on Monday for a three-week stay.
This is a great time to cut loose from an old self-image and get in touch with the creative part of you that’s been screaming for attention. Not to mention that it’s a swell time for finding new love, looking and feeling sexy, partying, taking up a sport, enjoying old hobbies that you’ve neglected, conceiving a baby, falling in love all over again with your spouse….do I hear any complaining? I didn’t think so.
Just watch out for uneasy emotions bubbling up to the surface on Friday, as a tough T-square may make you question everything and everyone around you. Blame the eclipse the day before, which is pushing you to break away from old ties and circumstances that no longer support your growth. Move on.
