excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign.The stars send us mixed signals this week. A New Moon in restless Sagittarius wants us to speak up and hurry up on Friday, but we still need patience. Mercury has just turned direct after three weeks retrograde so we may need to straighten out misunderstandings and correct snafus before we barrel ahead. Our ability to concentrate can shift and we may still get easily distracted, so we need to maintain situational awareness to not speed up and drive straight into a wall. Mercury still appears to be moving slowly from our perspective here on earth, and we’ll be just fine if we move steadily but slowly also. Underneath that cheerful, open New Moon in Sagittarius vibe, Mercury and Venus are both now in brooding and private Scorpio and can sharpen our thinking, keep us both wary and set in our opinions. But pure stubbornness won’t help the situation, so If we find we’re digging in our heels reflexively, let’s stop and ask whether this this is a knee-jerk reaction, or do we really feel that way. Mars lingers in sensitive, low energy Pisces through the month. With both the emotional planets, Venus and Mars, in more introverted signs this week, we may find ourselves unusually serious or thoughtful, ambiguous about holiday parties and preferring more intimate gatherings. No matter how busy we get, it will be good to take a moment alone, every now and then, without apology. . . .
