Tuesday brings us a New Moon at 21 degrees Taurus. As always, a New Moon is an excellent time to set out your intentions for what you’d like to change in your life in the next month. This one packs a particular punch, as it also coincides with Mars sextile Uranus. If there is anything in your life that needs to be fixed that could use a big burst of creative energy, you don’t want to let this opportunity slide. But be aware: Mars isn’t going to be in completely top shape this week, despite the pleasant aspect from Uranus. I’ll explain later.
On Wednesday, Mercury trine Saturn brings the opportunity to get your head straight, literally or figuratively. Yes, I know this is a love horoscope, but let’s be honest… sometimes love and romance don’t make for the clearest thinking. Sort yourself out first, try (maybe) fixing your partner afterwards.
For those of you who are already in committed relationships, Jupiter will be in the last degree of Aquarius until Thursday. The last degree of any sign can be a very powerful place for a planet, and Jupiter has natural rulership over committed relationships. It’s also a good time to sort out any legal issues. And God knows, sometimes committed relationships can lead to legal issues…
On Thursday, Jupiter enters Pisces. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces, so in theory this is a good time to start working on those committed relationships I mentioned earlier. Jupiter doesn’t wander too far into Pisces, though. In fact, Jupiter only reaches 2 degrees Pisces before it retrogrades back out and hits that final degree of Aquarius again in late July. So think of it as you having two months to get your act in order as far as your commitments go.
Remember how I mentioned earlier in this forecast that the Mars situation this week isn’t exactly comfortable? That’s because there is a minor but potentially very annoying aspect hovering over everything this week. On Saturday, Mars quincunx Saturn is exact. This can be a very annoying and frustrating aspect. Imagine pressing on the gas pedal with one foot and stomping on the break with the other. What are the odds you’re going to get anywhere that way? Be particularly careful with your irritability, and remember to play cautiously at best with those around you who feel threatened, exposed, or just plain cranky.
