At times, this week will feel like hard work. It is book-ended by two very difficult aspects involving warrior planet Mars. The first, on Monday, is a dramatic and potentially explosive conjunction with Uranus; the second, on Sunday, is an ill-tempered, sulky square to stubborn Saturn.

Expect emotions to run high throughout most of the week, especially in arguments between those who like the status quo and those who seek change. On Thursday, Mercury moves into analytical Virgo, so towards the end of the week, there is at least some reason underpinning heightened emotions.

Look to Sunday’s other major aspect, a trine between Venus and Neptune, for some sweet, romantic relief.

Unpleasant surprises with money are highly likely early this week, especially when Mars and Uranus join forces in a sudden, sharp shock on Monday. Try not to overreact. Your ruler Mars could lead you to impulsive, dramatic decisions which you will later regret, so it’s essential to let the dust settle first as far as possible.

This week certainly starts with a bang! On Monday, Mars and Uranus crash and burn together in Taurus, creating shockwaves of anger or chaos. Expect the unexpected in your personal life but remember that this influence will pass – whatever happens, you will be able to overcome it.

Distract yourself with something fun, especially later in the week. When Mercury changes signs, find a creative outlet for your worries. Any kind of art, acting, singing, or crafting will help you find peace of mind.

Sunday would be a lovely day for a long-overdue get-together with good friends, which will lift your spirits immensely. However, when Mars and Saturn clash, your identity itself may be in question.

Friendships are under strain as the week begins, particularly with Monday’s Mars and Uranus clash. If you’ve recently made new friends, be prepared for your ‘older’ friends to feel jealous or left out.

Fortunately, Mercury comes to your rescue on Thursday, arriving in the communication zone of your natal birth chart and making it much easier for you to empathize with someone else’s viewpoint. You may be able to mend some friendships from here.

Your ruler Mercury comes home to Virgo on Thursday, which will help you feel both more competent and more in control, taming emotions and calming your mind.

You’re being asked to take a walk on the wild side this Monday as Mars and Uranus create an intoxicating mashup of shocks and adrenaline. You are normally very emotionally stable, but the desire to shake things up will likely feel quite overwhelming for a few days.

When Mercury changes signs on Thursday, plan an adventurous or exciting vacation for the near-mid future. Giving yourself something to look forward to is very important right now.

Hopefully, you will have reigned in your wild streak by Sunday because Mars and Saturn create an atmosphere where further gambling (money, emotions, anything!) will likely backfire. Focus on romance instead, inspired by the sweet Venus-Neptune aspect.

Someone – perhaps a sibling – is not who you think they are. This much becomes evident on Monday when Mars and Uranus reveal shocking news. Please remember that you are not responsible for anyone else’s happiness or actions; stay calm, and know that things will work out OK.
