Things have been intense, but this week brings a relative calm between eclipses. Eclipses always come in pairs, and next week’s total solar eclipse on the 14th is going to be a doozy. To prepare, it’s best to lay low, take a bath and sit with all the feelings that are coming up. On the 9th, the sun makes a square to hazy Neptune, which spreads confusion and makes everything feel like a dream. Let’s tread carefully though because that sign might not be what it seems. Love planet, Venus, makes a supportive connection with therapeutic Pluto on the 10th letting us have a good, long cry and reminding us what really matters. Finally, on the 11th, the sun (our life force) makes a harmonious trine to Mars (our ambition). This aspect—which shows up in the natal charts of stars with lasting power like Laura Dern, Jennifer Lopez and Liza Minnelli— gets us out of our funk, but let’s not jump back into the action too fast. There are still revelations to come!
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
