Yippee! Your birthday season is here! The Sun moves into Virgo on Monday, highlighting your dreams and goals for the next four weeks. A magnificent Mercury-Jupiter conjunction the same day puts you in the driver’s seat. If you have a message to get out to the world, now’s the time to do it. As personal initiatives are always favored when the Sun is in your sign, this is a great time to write a book, a press release, start a blog, seek media attention, or go on the lecture circuit. You’re in a highly visible period right now; take advantage of it.
Your optimism will rise on Tuesday as an expansive Venus-Moon connection encourages you to think in broader brushstrokes. However, tension is building as Mars and Saturn inch closer to each other in your fourth house of domestic affairs on Wednesday. This has been a theme all month: your needs versus those of the people around you.
Chances are your loved ones sense your feeling of freedom and are worried that they’re going to be neglected while you pursue your passions. Balance is key. If you’re surrounded by supportive people, then you should be able to work things out. But if you have been playing Cinderella, no doubt you’re going to set a few people straight this week.
You could also be conflicted mid-week about which way to go in a housing issue. Should I move, or stay where I am? Should I rent or buy? Is it smart to let my mom move in with me, or is assisted living a better choice for her? Saturn is involved, which means that there are long-term ramifications to your plans. Take it slow and consider your options, despite Mars’s insistence that you do something now.
That’s because a romantic partner may not be on the same page as you when it comes to these decisions, especially on Friday. Business partnerships may also need a revamp toward the end of the week, as you seem anxious to head in a certain direction (a logical one at that) but your partner is in Lala Land.
Don’t worry, the confusion clears over the weekend. A superb Venus/Jupiter conjunction takes place in Virgo, essentially putting a seal of approval on just about any project that you’d like to set in motion. These are not only the two most helpful planets in the solar system, but they also govern profits. And we like profits.
