Conversations pick up this week as communication planet Mercury enters open-minded Aquarius. This shift is significant because just after entering the fixed air sign, Mercury will conjoin transformation planet Pluto on the 5th. Mercury-Pluto is an aspect that probes and investigates. With this being the first time that an inner planet has conjoined Pluto in Aquarius in almost 300 years, it’s important to pay attention to what’s happening on a personal as well as a collective level. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th allows us to set some forward-thinking intentions.
With both the sun and Venus connecting with Uranus (on the 7th and 8th), there are plenty of opportunities this week to take risks and put yourself out there. Romance and creativity are blooming. Who brings out the lover and artist in you?
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
