Two events of note take place involving your birth or rising sign this week: first, Mars ingresses Scorpio on Tuesday the 19th. Second, Mercury stations direct on Wednesday the 20th. Both of these have a “see what you’ve been missing” kind of feeling. However, until then, you will benefit from missing what you’ve been missing.
Tuesday, your two planetary rulers Mars and Pluto will meet in a square. You’re likely to experience this as a moment of clarity or cohesion, somewhat as if a fog has lifted from your mind. Certain experiences from recent months may suddenly make much more sense, accompanied by a feeling that you can at last move forward.
Tonight’s New Moon in your birth sign will be full of surprises. Some may seem to come from you, others from people close to you. Therefore, keep your plans loose for the next few days, to accommodate anything interesting that might arise. With Mercury about to station retrograde in your sign, you will likely be revising your agenda a few times.
The Sun leaves your sign this week. Mars will remain with you, and will be provocative. By that I mean you will be provocative: potentially seen as being more assertive, aggressive or disagreeable than you are. Of course, it may be true you’re irritated about something; if so, track that issue and see if you can unravel it.
With Mars newly in your sign, you may feel ready to take on the world. For now, though, take it on gently. With this week’s predominant aspect being Mars opposite Chiron, pay special attention to your human encounters.
