There’s a lot of sweet-talking in this week’s cosmic activity, but behind the scenes, the struggle for power is intensifying. The week begins with a Mercury-Jupiter trine on Monday which promises the earth but may be on shaky ground in practical terms.
The following day, Mercury squares Pluto, hinting at unseen scheming and plotting. The New Moon on Thursday in intense Scorpio opposes Uranus, bringing shocks and drama around anything hidden or obscured.
There is some respite at the weekend, when Mercury sextiles Venus in a conciliatory, let’s make up vibe, but throughout the week it will be important to remember that people can and do deceive.
Be upfront and honest in your relationship if you want to make the most of this week’s energies. Monday’s Mercury-Jupiter trine finds you saying all the right things, but can you follow through with your promises? When Mercury squares Pluto the following day, career-related pressures highlight the limitations being placed on your relationship.
Thursday’s New Moon is a passionate vibe, but also potentially a shocking one if anything illicit has been going on in your love life. Be prepared for secrets to come out and take evasive action if you have anything to hide.
The situation will settle down over the weekend, but remember that trust, once broken, cannot so easily be repaired.
