Hello, everyone.

This week features Uranus resuming direct motion on Tuesday, the Full Moon early on Wednesday, and a beautiful Venus/Saturn aspect on Friday.  Both Venus and Mercury change signs this week, and of course, we start a new month on Tuesday.  Look for my Astro4Business Month Ahead post tomorrow.


Today Mercury squares Uranus.  These two planets are both concerned with technology and communications but the square aspect brings conflict and disagreement about how to move forward.  There are just too many variables and moving parts to achieve clarity today.  If it can wait, tomorrow is a better day to make an important decision.


On Tuesday Mercury is sextile Neptune.  Under this aspect we can expect to be inspired by others, even from across the globe.  Sharing knowledge is favored and if you maintain an open mind, this can be a day of great ideas and technological progress.

Uranus resumes direct motion today, after being in retrograde motion since July 1 – a long time!  Innovation, invention, collaboration will all become more accessible now and technological projects which you’ve had on hold begin to move forward again.

Today Venus enters Sagittarius after being in the sign Scorpio since November 7.  Venus in Sagittarius will bring negotiations and alliances out into the open, and financial agreements can be approached with more candor.    Your creative ideas may come from far afield and your social instincts are generous under this influence.


Very early Wednesday morning EST is the Full Moon.  This Full Moon places the Moon in Gemini opposite the Sun in Sagittarius and our task is to use the heightened energy of the day (and week) to bring balance to the two.  The Gemini Moon is concerned with learning and the Sagittarius Sun is concerned with teaching.  You may have something to learn and something to teach.  Try to stay aware of which is which and when each is called for.


This is the best day of the week with Venus in Sagittarius sextile Saturn in Libra.  You may be entertaining multiple creative and profitable ideas at this time and Saturn in Libra will bring stability, diplomacy, and good judgment.  This is an excellent day for business agreements and alliances.


Mercury changes signs on Saturday, from Sagittarius to Capricorn.  Our minds become more serious and focused on achievement under this influence.  This can indicate good judgment as long as we don’t become overly cautious or worried.  Don’t forget your best ideas, even if they seem impractical now.  In fact, why not write them down while they still seem plausible or you may lose them completely after Saturday.


Have a wonderful week and remember to let me know how it goes.
