There’s a lot of astrological activity this week – make the most of it while you can because, on Sunday, Mars turns retrograde in Gemini, heralding a cosmic slowdown for almost three months.

Before this, though, the dramatic Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on Tuesday brings an opportunity to heal emotional trauma or feuds – but this potent energy can easily backfire, so be careful who you trust.
