Merging energies between hostile Mars and subterranean Pluto on Monday will bring emotionally repressed sludge to the surface. This will be a time for transformation and resolution. Be prepared to face obstacles in love and romance as Venus combines forces with grim Saturn to restrict feelings on Wednesday. Venus and Saturn are not well paired in Scorpio, where Venus has little power and the grave saturnine influence dominates. This is a week for working through things.

Although your intentions are good, be careful not to overextend yourself as the sun and Jupiter form a hard aspect on Thursday. This influence promotes a misdirected sense of duty.

Neptune, ruler of dreams and the deep waters of the mind, stations direct after a long period of retrograde this Sunday. Subconscious drives and dreams will concern the future rather than the past.
