How are you feeling? After the twists and turns of last week’s astro weather, chances are you have a LOT to think about. Armed with new information – or a change of heart – this week is the perfect time to figure out what comes next. Despite seeing the shortcomings of best-made plans, there’s problem-solving nous on offer that should help work around apparent roadblocks.

With support from Mercury and Uranus in the first half of the week, take time to zoom out and look at problems from a different angle. Is there another plan of attack you haven’t considered? If you’re struggling to see the wood for the trees, seek a second opinion. Later in the week, Venus and Jupiter pave the way to solidify a promising bond. Reach out to that work contact, text that person or schedule the meeting you’ve been feeling nervous about. The skies are on your side to make a good impression.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

Fresh insight into a dynamic with a friend or workmate means you’ll see things differently. The new information could change the playing field. How has it changed the way you feel? If it’s posed a problem, trust the stroke of genius that comes your way Monday and Tuesday. It’s just the right mix of innovative and practical to make progress.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

No one would blame you for being a little serious after the craziness that’s been unfolding lately, but this week challenge yourself to loosen up. Approaching problems with a sense of humour could work wonders. If that’s too much of an ask, make an effort to schedule something fun Thursday/Friday; you could do with the break.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Keeping your own counsel could pay dividends this week as your ruling planet Mercury gets an electrifying hit from Uranus. Laying low Monday/Tuesday and making space to listen to your intuition – preferably while doing something grounding  –will pave a pathway for out-of-the-blue downloads.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

If you’ve been thinking about making a move professionally, the skies are looking sweet. File that (possibly surprising) intel from a co-worker away early in the week, then make your move Thursday. Whether it’s a new connection, a new job or just a new raise, if you don’t ask, you won’t get.

LEO AND LEO RISING

Have you considered the restlessness you’ve been feeling at work might in fact be the exact thing you need to harness to your advantage? Stop finding holes in your experience and instead, look at all the opportunities in front of you to learn. All it takes is a willingness to flip the script and you could see things in a whole new light.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

If you’ve got the energy, there’s gold to be mined from a little problem-solving this week. Tackling an ongoing conundrum from a different angle could shift the way you think about things on a cellular level. It’s a lot to process, and while you may be feeling low-key socially, trust the mind-bending breakthroughs are solid intel.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

When was the last time you did something just for the fun of it? Challenge yourself to take a breath and bust out of the seriousness of the past couple of weeks. Wednesday to Friday are the ideal moments to grab someone you love (needn’t be romantic) and let off steam. A little bit luxe, a little bit playful and a whole lot of indulgent will do you nicely.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

Airing your dirty laundry isn’t usually your style, but if you’re losing sleep over a relationship issue, this week looks like a good time to phone a friend. A fresh perspective from a trusted third party could be just what you need to find a solution – especially early on in the week.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

Consider yourself officially sanctioned to let your hair down this week. After a lot of angst pinging around – even if it’s just been collateral – the stars are beckoning you to have a little fun. With your ruling planet Jupiter trining Venus, a last-minute spa break could be the perfect treat.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

That annoying, ongoing issue that came to the foreground under the full moon on Friday might seem a little more manageable this week. There’s a mastermind quality to the start of the week that could set you up for a big breakthrough. Celebrate the lightbulb moment with a little just-because shopping.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

How it started vs how’s it going is likely quite different after the full moon last Friday. If an even crazier alternative presents itself this week, don’t dismiss it before you’ve had a chance to consider, ‘what if it actually worked out?’. Later in the week, activating full-charm offensive will be effortless so have that important meeting/date/catch up and make the most of it.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

If you’re still reeling from last week, give yourself time to process and discuss what went down with someone you trust implicitly. Seeking a second opinion will help you make sense of it all – especially Monday/Tuesday. The back half of the week looks like a sweet escape from all the tension. Treat yourself to something indulgent, just because.
