Sweet relief! After a five month retrograde, your ruler, Neptune, finally goes direct on Saturday. Confusion as to which direction to head in should begin to dissipate like the morning fog. This is significant, because three planets changed signs last week, pointing you in new directions: your career and ambitions(Mercury) and the people with whom you associate, particularly friends (Venus).
But the most significant planetary movement was that of Mars gliding into the twelfth house of the subconscious mind. This house governs your habits, fears, worries and thought patterns. We can “undo” ourselves here with addictions and inappropriate behavior, or completely heal ourselves of sadness, toxic thoughts and unhelpful routines.
This is Mars’s first visit here in two years, so get ready to “clean house”: mentally, emotionally and spiritually. And now that Neptune is about to go direct, your catharsis should be more rapid and pronounced than ever. What a fabulous time to rid yourself of troubles and worries. The twelfth house also governs physical ailments, surgery and physical therapy, so if you are in need of that kind of healing, this is a remarkable time for progress.
The full moon earlier in the week falls in your third house of communication, writing and thinking. A project that you’ve been working on may reach a happy conclusion: your thesis, a major term paper, a piece for your art portfolio, a contract, a manuscript, a marketing plan (which includes written pieces like brochures) or simply an idea that’s been rolling around in your head. You may finally decide to action on a smart idea and breathe life into it.
This is a super moon, the biggest one since 1948, and it occurs on Monday. Mercury and Mars are forming a positive aspect that bodes well for advancing some major goals of yours, although you should probably keep things on the downlow for the next five weeks. Since this lunation occurs in the communication zone, holding important talks right now is key. They could be with a sibling, lover, child, co-worker or angel investor, but whoever it is, open up the lines of communication.
Tuesday is perfect for scheduling or going on a job interview (sshhh), or quietly researching a side business you’ve been considering.
Watch out though on Friday, as a tough Mercury-Neptune aspect could pit you against an authority figure, such as a boss, judge, banker or key decision maker. It’s imperative that you speak plainly and not try to conceal anything. Be as direct as possible (politely of course) as murky Neptune is acting up. You don’t want to appear to be wishy washy or ill prepared.
But then the weekend comes and the planets are in a good mood, especially lovely Venus. She’s telling you to get out there and cavort with friends. It’s also the perfect weekend for romance, probably the best all month, as Venus and Neptune are winking at each other across the heavens. Plan a special night out with your sweetie, and singles–a friend could be the best way to meet someone, along with online dating sites.
