Hello, everyone.

A pretty nice week ahead starring Venus, a waxing Moon, and a mystical end of the week.  The highlighted days are:

Monday

On Monday, Venus leaves nurturing Cancer and enters dramatic Leo.  Venus represents our sense of happiness, prosperity, affection and luck.  When she transits the solar sign of Leo, we become infused with a desire to display our talents and creativity with fire and flair.  People want to stand-out and shine and are generally infused with an upbeat, generous energy – as long as they get the credit for their contributions.    This is a position that inspires connection through sport, games, fun, and celebration.  Bring this into your workplace and the creativity will soar.

Venus forms a powerful flow of energy with Uranus in Aries today.  Your staff may be brimming with brand new creative ideas.  Why not hold a brain-storming meeting to elicit them?  And no simple pads of papers or projections of facts and figures.  Feature drama, story-telling, and contest to really bring out the best insights.

Tuesday

Today Venus moves on to connect with Jupiter in Aries.  This is a day of LUCK, driven of course through openness to the new and willingness to take a risk.  With Jupiter in Aries, opportunities can be found in the new – new relationships, new management structures, new ideas, new business, new clients.  And Venus will make it personal, bringing these opportunities right into your immediate sphere of contacts, connections, and customers.  Be sure you’re out and about today – interpersonal relationships channel the energy of expansion.

Later in the day, Mars in Virgo harmonizes with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is the ideal time to take action that leads directly to concrete results.  Pluto will present an issue that’s been festering for a long time and with Mars in Virgo, you will know just what to do to finally put it to rest.  It may take an offensive play on several fronts.  Don’t stop until it is fully resolved, once and all.

Saturday

Saturday is a really interesting day for you, as the owner or leader in your business.  The activities of the leader are represented by the Sun and today the Sun first forms a difficult aspect to Saturn and then a harmonious aspect to Neptune.  A challenge presents itself early (EDT) and the answer comes later.

You may find that you grapple all day with a seemingly insurmountable obstacle which may bring up feelings of insecurity or incompetence.  There may be difficult decisions to make that seem beyond your ability to resolve well.  You may wish you could sequester yourself away and let someone else take care of it.

Guess what?  Time alone will actually yield the wisdom you are looking for and you will find you’re not alone; the whole community is supporting you.  If you can, get out of the office or workplace and take yourself to a museum, a zoo, an arts festival, or even a wine tasting.  Neptune’s energy is on hand in all these environments and will effortlessly give you an intuitive grasp of the situation.  From there, the right approach will be clear.

Have a great week, and let me know how it all works out.
