You’ll feel more balanced as Mercury goes direct in Libra on the 19th. For several weeks, it will be in its shadow, so there may be some kinks. Though generally speaking, you will begin to gain some clarity lost during the retrograde, and your communication will improve. When the Aries Full Moon occurs on the 20th, you will have the opportunity to become bold and brave in times of conflict. You will be able to do so at this time. Please be gracious.
Consider that the energies from the Full Moon may last for a few days. Mars in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn on the 22nd. Conflicts may intensify as a result. Stressful arguments may result. Use caution.
You can work on healing some inner wounds if you haven’t found closure in a relationship, professional or personal, since the Sun moves from Libra into Scorpio on the 23rd. We’ll see how your sign does this week.
Aries – Mercury going direct will make you more chatty with others, and you will find it easier to express yourself. However, if you reveal too much, you might end up talking about someone you don’t like or who cheated on you. It will come back to haunt you. Also, the Queen of Pentacles reversed tarot card comes up, which is a sign of gossip, so be careful with what you say to others!
Taurus – As you assess your skills this week, you may discover that others in your field have better skills than you – or better skills than you think you have. Feeling envious of that will be unpleasant. But, in addition, that may also indicate that you should evaluate and examine how to improve some of the skills you already have if you so choose. Finally, the Magician comes up, which means you have skills and resources of your own that you need to evaluate and appreciate!
Gemini – When Mercury goes direct, you will have more ideas for projects or other work. At meetings, you may discuss them but be prepared for someone to shoot your ideas down because they think they are better. When they do that, you should say nothing and continue explaining why you think your ideas are the best. The Three of Wands comes up, a card representing collaboration and planning, and this is what you need to do this week!
Cancer – Attempting to find balance within yourself has been on your mind for some time now. However, this week may be difficult for you. With the Full Moon, your sign naturally forms a square with Aries and Libra. If something upsets you this week, you may lose your equilibrium and explode. At work or home, you may feel taken advantage of again. Dealing with unpleasant repercussions can cause you to explode in anger. Spend a lot of time alone and try to center yourself. Temperance comes up, which tells you to be kind to yourself and be patient with yourself!
Leo – As a competitor may do something more creative than you this week, you may feel threatened. When you use this opportunity to learn about what they are doing or let jealousy take over, you will find sneaky ways to steal their clients and customers. If you do that, you will be found out, which can ruin your reputation. If you do not own a business, you may have an issue with a coworker you think is doing a better job than you and feel the urge to sabotage them. This is not a good idea. The Seven of Wands comes up, which means you will want to protect your hard work and accomplishments as someone out there, such as a hater, is watching.
Virgo – This week, there may be drama around you, and you can avoid it by working. Working extra hours or organizing your home doesn’t matter. You want to avoid drama, but you risk isolating yourself, making you feel even more anxious. This is not something you want to do. The Five of Swords comes up, which is a sign for you to pick and choose your battles, so you will want to limit what you say and be careful with who you speak to this week.
Libra – As a result of your sign, Mercury going direct will substantially impact you. In addition to thinking clearly, you’ll also be able to come up with ideas for work and personal projects more efficiently. You will feel aggressive once the Sun leaves Libra, in addition to the problematic aspects of the other planets and the Full Moon. Like Aries and Gemini, you might find that you want to make your ideas known as being the best. The Queen of Swords comes up, which means you will speak the truth without keeping your emotions in check, but that can be the “bitch card,” so choose your words wisely.
Scorpio – The tendency to make mountains out of molehills this week, as minor inconveniences will seem impossible. Therefore, you may be challenging to work with when it comes to projects and such, and you won’t be an ideal member of any team. However, when the Sun enters your sign, you will begin to slow down and feel more peaceful. In addition, the Ten of Wands comes up, which is a sign that if things are too complicated, you will be better off delegating some work.
Sagittarius – While you have been trying to remain calm and logical, the intensity of the Full Moon may cause you to lose your temper, which you will feel incredibly guilty about whether it happened at work or home. It is best to exercise or kickbox to release that angry energy at the time, so it is less likely to occur. In addition, the Moon comes up, which means some fears are getting in the way of you this week. Some fears are in your subconscious, and you will want to take some time to figure them out.
Capricorn – Mercury goes direct when you’ll be able to think more logically and clearly. You will also be motivated to become a better leader. So, despite the tension from this week’s energies, you will do your best to keep frustrations at bay and to focus on improving yourself. The King of Cups comes up, which means you will want to keep your emotions in check no matter what you face this week.
Aquarius – It will be your responsibility to mediate tensions and arguments experienced by others. You will feel stressed out and want to be as helpful as possible, but you will do it based on your humanitarian side. Focus on your creativity and things that make you happy. Empress comes up, which means you will have the urge to nurture others, but do not forget to nurture yourself.
Pisces – You will be prone to self-doubt this week, which could be sparked by something that someone says to you or something you find out about someone you knew back in the day who seems to be doing better than you. As a result, you may feel insecure and defensive. Instead, focus on your positive qualities and how you have made positive changes in the past. Then, the Sun comes up, focusing on your successes and anything positive about yourself.
The same way you dealt with other challenging times, I’m sure you’ll deal with this week as well.
