Those sweet summer days are in the rearview, and school is in session once more for some of us. Coming to a sky near you on Sunday, the new moon (planet of emotions) in Virgo is here to kick the collective back into gear. Been leaving the house a little less tidy than it should be? Dodging the gym? No worries! The new moon will remind you why life’s little (and big) tasks are so important. However, the lessons taught by this week’s very Virgo energy may be a little intense.
Mars (planet of action) shares the moon’s sign and goes into a trine with Pluto (planet of transformation) in Capricorn on the first day of the week. The theme is motivation (an even a dash of obsession if we’re being honest), so rev up your to-do lists! This is the time to pick up the slack and forge firmly ahead. Success is at the finish line if you really want it.
On Friday, he intensity is dialed up as Venus (planet of love) slinks from lovely Libra into steamy Scorpio. Because Venus prefers to keep love light and airy, jealous Scorpio isn’t its coziest place. But for those of us trying to stack our cash and fine-tune our focus, Venus in Scorpio could be a holy grail.
