The adage, “Change is the only certainty,” definitely rings true this week as some wild astro weather promises a major shakeup. After a burst of big-picture optimism early in the week, drama brews as we edge closer and closer to Friday’s eclipse. By now Scorpio season has likely forced you to acknowledge what you need to let go. If you’re still not sure, the full moon on Friday promises to spotlight exactly what that is. There’s no need to “do” anything, just surrender to what unfolds and trust that what falls away has run its course. As intense as it may be, try not to struggle and grasp; this is not a week to hold on too tight. Double down on your self-care and let the big feels move through you. Next week’s shift to Sagittarius season promises a major mood change, but before we get there, there’s big releases that need to happen.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

The fireworks are in full force this week, the question is, can you keep your cool under pressure? As money decisions come to the fore, there’s the opportunity to let go of old baggage that’s well and truly outstayed its welcome. Trust the endings that unfold are 100 per cent necessary in order to make space for something new.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

The pressure points that came to light in your closest relationships (love life, best mates, business partners) last week continue to gain momentum, culminating on Friday’s full moon. There is major healing and insights to be had, but it won’t be without a little sting. Try to think of it as a very active peel or a deep tissue massage – no pain, no gain.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

Of all the signs equipped to sail through this week, it’s you! With big shifts in store around health, work and your daily routine, it’s a time to stay supple and curious to all the changes afoot. Stay true to that that amazing Gemini flex and roll with the waves, now is not the time to tighten your grip or hold on to stuff that’s gone beyond its use-by date.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

Drama is in the air this week, as eclipse season dials up the intensity and sharpens the focus on your friendships. There could be tension following last week’s cancelled plans but dig a little deeper and you’ll see the real issue runs much deeper. It’s ok to be cranky, but don’t let it overwhelm you. This is a week to let go and get ready to move on.

LEO AND LEO RISING

There’s major change in the air this week as Friday’s eclipse stirs up the need for movement, release and deep healing. An opportunity to let go of old hurts – especially around work/home life issues – may present. If you’re willing to be brave and go there, the opportunity for transformation is major. You can do it!

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

The winds of change are well and truly upon us this week as eclipse season kicks off with a serious bang. There’s big Marie Kondo energy in the air, as all that does not spark joy is shown the door. The best bit is you don’t have to do anything. Just wait and see what leaves of its own accord. Try to keep an open mind and see it as a necessary purge rather than a forced eviction.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

The money issues that have been swirling throughout Scorpio season reach a crescendo this week, culminating on Friday’s full moon. As hard as it is, try not to take action or force anything to happen. Now is not the time to initiate, just watch what happens and stay open to the possibility that a big change could be exactly what you need.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

After last week’s burst of energy, this week is a time to slow down. There’s major change and deep healing on the table… if you’re willing to go there. Your greatest challenge will be to find strength in stillness. No need to hustle or push, just let things unfold, drop away and trust the changing tides are ending a larger cycle.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

The final week of Scorpio season is the perfect moment to go ground and replenish your energy reserves before your home season kicks off next week. Amy up your self-care – especially anything involving water. Rest and solitude are your best friends. There’ll be plenty of drama swirling outside, but there’s no need to get involved.

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

There’s no shortage of action in your social sphere this week as the final days of Scorpio season usher in plenty of drama. Try to take it easy and lean into your natural talents of staying grounded under pressure. If you’ve been holding on to resentment or keeping score, now is the time to let it go, once and for all.

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

After the excitement of the last seven days, this week it’s time to take a breath. Things may still be all action-stations, especially at work and home, but now you’ve got the ball rolling, try to let things unfold naturally. It might not be a smooth ride, but remember endings are a necessary part of new beginnings.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

The intense energy swirling around this week could have the people around you acting a little erratic. Don’t be afraid to take a time out and keep a low profile if you don’t feel you have the bandwidth to deal with other people’s stuff. There’s insights and healing to be had on Friday’s full moon, but you needn’t make it a group activity.
