The early part of this week is dominated by a very tense and antagonistic square aspect between Mars and Uranus. This energy mirrors what happens when something new and novel pushes against the status quo, and when vested interests want to defend their status at all costs. In our personal lives, this is a flashpoint, with raised tempers and often illogical actions.

The astrological vibes settle down, however, and on Sunday Mercury changes signs, moving into Aries. This is perfect for quick thinking and on-the-spot decision-making. During this transit, we don’t like to waste too much time thinking through the pros and cons – it’s a time for action, so follow your instincts and don’t over-think your choices.

The tensions early this week are likely to center around your long-term objectives, Aries. It’s possible that you’re being slightly unrealistic, especially regarding how much money is necessary in order for you to achieve your dreams. As Mars and Uranus clash on Tuesday, this is likely to be brought into sharp focus for you, and you may feel frustrated, constrained or disappointed. Try not to let it ruin your week; all that is needed is a slight readjustment of your direction and an abundance mind shift.

When Mercury moves into Aries on Sunday you will be able to think much more clearly, and that’s the ideal moment to re-do your plans and to start manifesting your own reality.


Lunar influences early in the week are romantic and passionate for you, Taurus – but this must be viewed against a backdrop of some considerable tension at work. On Tuesday in particular, when Mars and Uranus clash, you may find yourself questioning your career path or feeling uneasy with the values of your industry.

The only way through this difficulty may be to admit that you were wrong and to make amends, fast.

There is better news later in the week, however. On Sunday, Mercury – your ruling planet – changes signs and moves into the friendship area of your natal birth chart, so this is a particularly good time to make new friends or to find new contacts on your wavelength.

However, when Mars and Uranus clash on Tuesday, it becomes clear that your partner has issues with your work or career, especially if it takes you away from home a lot. This is, unfortunately, a no-win situation for you – but at least allow your partner to air their grievances, as this is much healthier than leaving things unsaid.

You start the week under the powerful influence of a Scorpio Moon, which increases your emotional intensity to the max.
