Know who your friends are this week, as there’s a certain amount of gossip and backstabbing in an undercurrent of unreliability and unpleasantness. This is particularly so on Tuesday when Venus and Pluto clash.

There’s a better vibe on Thursday when Venus moves into grand, warm-hearted Leo. This is very showy and romantic energy, good for gestures of love and demonstrative affection.

Also on Thursday, the Full Moon shines from Aquarius. This is friendly, humanitarian energy, but it does have some added angst in this instance, with the Full Moon receiving unhelpful contacts from Saturn and Uranus. Try to keep your spirits up and not let the naysayers get you down.

Being honest is very important early this week, Aries – especially with your partner and especially over work-life balance issues. When Venus and Pluto go head-to-head on Tuesday, any attempts to fudge the situation or cover up the truth are likely to backfire badly.

On Thursday, Venus moves into the dating area of your natal birth chart – if you’re single, this is a fantastic time to meet new people. If you’re already with someone, you can use this energy to rediscover the sensuality and passion from your honeymoon period.

The end of the week looks to be very sociable for you too. Thursday’s Full Moon lights up your friendship zone and rewards your efforts to network with others.
