Hello everyone.

A week of changes ahead with Mercury and Venus changing signs, and a volatile aspect between Venus and Uranus.  Although not difficult, don’t expect to be in the same place at the end of the week as you are at the beginning.

Monday

On Monday Mercury enters the sign of Pisces.  The sharp focused intellect of Mercury in Aquarius gives way to a softer approach.  Images communicate better than words when Mercury is in Pisces, so be sure your writing and speaking include symbols and color.  Your thoughts flow more easily and your best ideas come from dreaming, day-dreaming, and fantasy, so include time for all of these.

Wednesday

Expect the unexpected where finances are concerned today with Venus joining risk-taking Uranus.  Financial astrologers expect sharp price swings and you may experience this volatility in your own purse, up or down.  Poise yourself to take advantage of a sudden opportunity but be careful not to spend money like water and or you could drain your purse completely. 

Thursday

Dreamy Mercury in Pisces snuggles up to Pluto in Capricorn today.  Your communications will be powerful and persuasive.  If the economic turmoil is impinging on your business plans, allow yourself some time to just listen; a deep and insightful clue to resolution could be revealed.

Sunday

Venus enters Aries today and then meets up with her counterpart, Mars.  Venus in Aries is self-interested, and with Mars at the end of its retrograde cycle you want to strike while the iron is hot.  This can be a great day for negotiations if you can allow some give and take.  Your passions can ignite a new creative partnership today but don’t expect it to take shape until after the 10th.

A little later Mercury and Jupiter join up.  Mercury rules the intellect and Jupiter represents wisdom.  You can take in the full picture today and when speaking to others, you will be eloquent and inspiring.  Remember to use images rather than words to get your points across.

Have a great week, and as always, let me know how it goes.
