The Quarter Moon takes place mid-week, so try to plan important business meetings or conversations that will help you boss up. You’ll feel more confident and assertive, and you’ll be able to convince people to see things from your point of view. Plus, an opposition between Pluto and Venus helps you see beyond the surface level when it comes to interactions you have with your peers, coworkers, or significant other(s). They won’t be able to get past you when it comes to revealing their true motives and intentions, so if you’ve been feeling like things are a little off in friendship dynamics, or with family members, you may be able to clear the air by just telling it like it is around Wednesday. There’s no point in bottling up your emotions or biting your tongue if your heart is ready to express its truth. It’s better to pour your heart out and know that you kept it real, than to hide your true feelings.
By Thursday, the Aries Moon will have you all fired up and ready to go when it comes to a project that means a lot to you. You may also hear back from an interview or opportunity for expansion, and you may be ready to sign the dotted line. Just make sure that everything’s in order and don’t rush too prematurely into a contract or deal. You’ll want to be knowledgeable about what’s at stake and who you’re getting involved with. Neptune, the Planet of Illusion, is getting ready to go retrograde in a few weeks, so you won’t be able to see the entirety of your professional or creative situation in the clearest light. The key is to take baby steps when entering a new journey in those sectors, and trust that it’s better to slow down and get it right than try to get it all done prematurely.
Romantically, this week you may find yourself vacillating between seeking intimacy and needing your alone time. These are the vibes of Gemini Season combined with Venus in Cancer. A part of you is craving someone you can spill your secrets to, and another part of you may just need a break from communicating altogether, because you’ve been absorbing so many outside vibes already. Respect both parts of you, but also be aware that your moodiness may rub people the wrong way, especially if you don’t explain to them what’s going on. If you can, try to let them into your complex emotional world so that they don’t think that they’ve done something wrong. And if you do feel a certain way about someone, try to express yourself without blaming them. Just let them know about your emotional reaction, and work through it together, without trying to make the other person feel bad. You’ll get much further by adopting a spirit of compromise and mutual understanding.
Have an enlightening and productive week, Scorpio!
