If money has been preventing you from quite literally ‘moving on’ with your life, this week could see its arrival. The 4th opposes your 10th – the house of career and reputation so we also have to look past your front door when transits like these occur.

Ideas rule right now Scorpio and so does news with one idea or piece of it having the potential to bring in big changes this week.

It’s time to communicate clearly in every area of your life but especially when it comes to work, business, written projects and anything to do with the internet. Got an idea?

Above all, answer all messages, emails, calls etc in a timely manner. This is one of those times where if you stay in touch with the world, it will stay in touch with you.
Ancient ruler Mars is also on the move this week leaving your 1st to arrive in your confidence-giving money zone. You will take whatever action necessary to improve your financial standing now but don’t make this your only goal. This is a Venus ruled house so the sub-text is also love and passion. Mars is about to heat things up. You’re projecting an increased confidence which is oh-so-sexy now. And you’re not afraid to go after what you want. You may not have to do that however as what you want may be unable to resist and comes to you. Mercury squares Uranus this week – but again, in Mercury’s other ruling house in your chart. What this means is you can basically deal with anything unexpected that’s thrown in your path. The ideas factory? That’s you now.
In a nutshell: News or an idea has the potential to bring big changes now. Both your rulers are poised to bring you the recognition and rewards you seek. Go get what you want.
- You’re right on the money!
- Got good karma?
- Who wants to bask in your aura?
Your actual worth or on a deeper level, your self-worth could be in for a radical transformation this week. Whether it takes this form or not, what occurs this week could be like money in the bank or an asset you can draw on, Sag. Chances are the past couple of years have been ‘heavy’ going thanks to Saturn in your sign. Many Sagittarians would have felt the quantum energy shift last month when he finished his transit in your 1st and headed into your 2nd. Your 2nd is most definitely in focus this week as Mercury meets with Pluto and sextiles ruler Jupiter in your 12th. Working on something behind the scenes, healing or psychic work, investigations, going ‘below’ – any of these could bring you rewards. Or if some kind of karmic pay-out is due to you, this could see it arrive.
Mars arrives in your sign this week adding that va-va-vroom restoring your energy, passion and need for self-expression. Nobody puts you in the corner now. It’s a good time to look at where your life may be out-of-balance and if so, take some steps to restore this. Where or what is lacking? Romance, passion? Mars can turn up the heat drawing others to you to bask in that warmth. Expect some surprises when Mercury squares Uranus with perhaps invitations or social arrangements getting shifted or cancelled. If so, an alternative may present itself. Sometimes things don’t work out for a reason and this just might be one of those times. Look at the alternatives this week. They could be better than what you originally thought you wanted. That’s the surprise.
In a nutshell: Good karma could be heading your way. Rewards for past efforts appear. Right now however, your increased confidence brings love and other opportunities calling.
- Follow inspiration
- Explore a new role
- Intuition is your guide
You’re a channel this week, Capricorn. This may manifest in very creative ways. You could literally be inspired to undertake a creative venture. Your intuitive or psychic abilities can peak. Or you may literally feel as if you are someone else – perhaps bolder, more confident or even sexier. As if you have stepped outside your usual self. A bit like an actor stepping in to a role. Think of this as a facet of you that you are now ready to show the world as Mercury and Pluto meet in your 1st. The power of ideas can take you anywhere now and if you’ve been sitting on one, sit no more. Mercury also extends an invitation to Jupiter in your 11th on the 25th. Accept all invites especially if it means meeting people outside your usual circles. You’re in the mood to connect and also to explore.
Mars enters your 12th on the 26th bringing with him the fire and desire to investigate, to go below the surface and to seek answers. You could have a desire to explore your past and even reach out to people from it. This really is your high-speed link to universal wisdom and don’t ignore any information you psychically download. This can be a hunch, an inspired idea or just a gut ‘feeling’ about someone or a situation. As this is your house of hidden enemies pay particular attention if you feel something is ‘off’ – it most probably is. Unexpected changes especially around family or on the home front could need you to think on your feet now. But chances are you already have the answer – or it floods in. Open a channel to a new consciousness this week.
In a nutshell: Divine inspiration? You’re a channel for insight and ideas now, Capricorn. Don’t dismiss the importance of those inspired ideas – they’re your power – and a gift.
- Your ideas resonate with others
- Look for alternative answers
- Release your inner genius!
Writer, artist or creator? Release that inner genius this week as Mercury in your 12th expands your imagination as he meets Pluto in here and also makes a career-enhancing angle to Jupiter. Your own emotions come to the surface as feelings you may not know you had emerge and the best way the handle this is to channel them into a project if you can. If you do this you may strike a chord with others out there. You are able to connect to the collective unconscious this week. Explore alternative thinking – in everything from health to physics. Don’t tune out but go deeper into a subject. You can access insight and a level or investigation and research skills and come up with revelations as a result.
Mercury will also square your ruler Uranus in Mercury’s ruling house (3rd) and Mars enters your 11th on the 26th. You are asserting your ideas and your independence now. This is not a transit where you are willing to ‘go along with the crowd’, but wanting to strike out on your own path. Unexpected news or events could suddenly send you in a surprising or even challenging direction. Just don’t move too fast – Mars can have us rushing or acting in haste. You’ll prefer working independently and autonomously now and because your creativity is high, you’re in a position to impress people. Just don’t insist too much on having things your own way otherwise you could alienate the very people who are on your side. You’ll bring that inner fire to anything you do this week – coupled with a spark of genius. Get ready to impress.
In a nutshell: Release your inner genius and express those ideas. You’re forging a highly individual path this week. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb.
- Live life in the fast lane
- Embrace the new and unusual
- Fire up those ambitions
Friends, travel, business and communication feature this week. Life may seem to be passing at high speed with you in the fast lane this week, Pisces. You’ll probably find there’s little time for contemplation now. It’s all go-go-go and being in the moment – or I should say, being in two places at once as that is what it could feel like this week! Shifts in your social or professional circles, friends and even an unexpected windfall also feature. You crave excitement so try to steer clear of anything that requires attention to detail or mundane tasks as you’ll soon discover your attention span is lacking. You’re after new experiences and excitement instead. You could even gravitate towards new and possibly unusual interests. Highly individual and possibly electric people could form part of your experiences now. What can you learn from them?
Ambitions are ignited as Mars enters your career zone. You could be actively taking on more responsibility and your workload could increase. You’re willing to work harder than usual to get where you need to go. Your increased drive and determination won’t go unnoticed either. Look to what works and what doesn’t for you and channel that warrior spirit accordingly. Also be seen in public in the best possible light. You’re on fire so don’t get sloppy in either your work or with your image. Mars in here is all about finishing off projects rather than starting new ones and finding ways to work within established boundaries. You’ve the staying power and the focus now. Go the distance.
In a nutshell: You’re determined to go the distance this week. Especially when it comes to career and business goals. Fire up those ambitions and blaze a trail now, Pisces!
