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.
