Mercury is going direct again, going over all that terrain it covered while it retrograded! This last Mercury retrograde has been about worldview. You will have challenged and changed your worldview at some point during it. While Mercury was retrograding, it wasn’t really the time for figuring out what you could do with all that you’ve learned and how to put it into words. It was just time to take and receive and experience. Now, you’re a lot more agile with vocabulary in your mind and the words are coming to you. Make sure you understand what changed about your perspective and that you’re able to build on it for the future.
Venus going into Capricorn and conjunct-ing Saturn means that your personal resources and relationships will get more through the redesign grinder. Figure out what you are willing to take in this week and make time for that and that alone. Put up the necessary barriers so that you’re not receiving things you do not need. That being said, this is Capricorn and Saturn and the things you need may not necessarily be things you enjoy. They are things important to you and the people around you.
During this moon phase we have more energy. We don’t have to worry about sharing what we’re going through with everyone, just doing what we’re doing for our own sakes. Take advantage of this time to clear things up and get things done.
(These horoscopes are more accurate if you look at your rising sign, sun sign, and moon sign! If you don’t know your time of birth, sun and moon signs are fine.)
♈️ Aries ♈️
Once you put words out there, you cannot take them back. This week, note how important it is to choose your words intentionally so that they are meaningful and memorable. But you also want to choose your language carefully because they are permanent. Fixing your mindset will help you find the right words to put into practice.
♉️ Taurus ♉️
Go back and think about what kind of sex you’ve had these last few years. Use sex as a metaphor for sharing. Understand the role you tend to take up in order to talk yourself out of some bad habits and frameworks that have grown old. Realize that you’re ready for a new sexual persona and do the mental work to prepare.
♊️ Gemini ♊️
Tidy up any loose ends that have to do with your relationships or issues of social accountability that have been on your mind so that you’re able to bring in the next stage of your life — creating social resources and social value. Make sure everything is fair and doubt your sense of ethics one last time before you’re ready to use them as they are.
♋️ Cancer ♋️
Take the time to relax and luxuriate before you suddenly get bombarded. You need to make sure that you’re connected to your body and have a good, working relationship of it so that you’re able to handle the social challenges that will soon come your way without losing a sense of self. Make a plan to take care of your health so that you have more energy to focus.
♌️ Leo ♌️
Make the last minute changes you need to make on your creation and in thinking about what you want. This way, you can make a plan for figuring out how to get these things. Visualize your desires and tell them to yourself over and over again so that you remember them. Grab as much hope as you can before things get menial.
♍️ Virgo ♍️
Have any conversations that you need to have in your home before you’re able to move on and figure out what you actually want from life. Sort it out so that you understand what it takes to make you comfortable, that you have critiqued the ways you may or may not receive that comfort. Depending on how comfortable you’re allowed to be, you’ll be able to want bigger and better things.
♎️ Libra ♎️
Finish up the personal identity project that has been your focus for a about seven years now and get ready to deal with things outside of your control. This week make sure that you’ll be able to keep a journaling routine or a talking to yourself in the mirror routine so that you can hear your own thoughts as you begin to process things that came before you.
♏️ Scorpio ♏️
Budget one last time and make sure you’re satisfied with where your money is going and how it’s coming in. This way, you’ll be able to focus on the next thing and learning new things. You’ll decide what your values for for a while so do any rethinking that you need to do. Let yourself be stubborn if you need to be and hold your place.
♐️ Sagittarius ♐️
Change anything about dissatisfactions with your self image with the necessary for self validation in mind. Revise how you do you so that you’ll have an easier time keeping accountability in the near future. Change what you need to change so that you’re able to feel good about yourself. Find ways to accept yourself and who you are.
♑️ Capricorn ♑️
Take that final plunge into dreamscape and make sure you’re ready for the task that you’re going to be tackling on. Make sure, first of all, that it is a task of liberation and you’re attempting to guarantee yourself and others the right to freedom. Change your mind one last time about something and do some self work before you get more confrontational.
♒️ Aquarius ♒️
Talk to your friends and make sure that you know where they stand and they know where you stand. This is because positioning is extremely important when asking for support. You will need to ask for support at some point. Gather those around you close and set boundaries with those who you cannot trust wholeheartedly.
♓️ Pisces ♓️
You’re ready to starting mapping out an entire future for yourself but you’ll only be able to do that once you have a wide and tolerant understanding of your present. Open yourself wide. You’re the container that can let anything in and absorb it. Take in what is violent so that you can do your magic of perverting it and turning its sense of its head.
