Go green on Friday. Why not! Let a drink of your favourite brew pay homage to St. Patrick’s Day, the end of the workweek, and the release of a pressure cooker between the sun and Saturn. They’ve been stirring the undercurrents and the subconscious, and they’ve been weaving a storyboard, too. To the plus, the transit between the sun and Saturn dissolves or surpasses a barrier. Thursday/Friday can open it up for you in some unforeseen way. Sun/Saturn can help you let it go: to surrender, process, or force you to relinquish something of great value and meaning.
The combination is also revealing, exposing, unleashing, or unhinging. Sorting fact from fiction, and emotions from reality, can be a confusing process. You may not know where you are headed, but you do know where you’ve been. Allow the advance of time, knowledge, and experience you’ll gain along the way to be your best go-to adviser.
Early Saturday, Mercury and Venus retrograde are on the same page. A talk, breakfast in bed, or a morning workout does good for the heart, body, and soul. Revisit the conversation, plan, or pick up where you left off. The moon in Sagittarius keeps the weekend on a mostly smooth roll. Enjoy a short getaway or plug in right where you are.
March 20 – April 20
Friday/Saturday could see you make your way to a breakthrough regarding an inner or outer struggle. Something you read, hear, see, sign, or speak could be the spark that sets better and/or bigger wheels in motion. When the opportunity presents itself, broach the conversation and don’t hold back. Sunday, indulge and recharge as you enjoy it best. Monday begins a work-it-out, forge-ahead week.
April 20 – May 21
Friday’s sun/Saturn can prompt you to come clean and/or open up to another. While it could be a difficult thing to do, it’s better to get it out or to give up on something or someone. Saturday’s Mercury/Venus can see you revisit a conversation or an issue. It marks a karmic-threshold-crossing peak. The play will unfold for the rest of the month.
May 21 – June 21
A realistic price or expectation delivers the goods on Friday. While you may be able to take advantage of an opportunity or another’s oversight, it’s better to come clean rather than go through the motions or try to get away with more for less. Use the weekend to shop, talk, or get the ball rolling. Monday onward, get to work!
June 21 – July 22
TGIF! Sign off on the pressure and make full use of your personal time this weekend. If you work, it should be easy to handle. Mercury/Venus and the Sagittarius moon keep it rolling well. Monday’s fresh start is as good as you make it. Tuesday too. By midweek, it’s time to plug into something fresh and/or to surface again socially.
July 22 – August 23
Get it out of the way on Thursday/Friday, and the weekend is yours for the taking. Saturday morning with a friend or a special someone sets it right for the day. Enjoy a getaway or stick around and enjoy connecting, catch-up, scouting missions, and play time. Monday/Tuesday, get straight to it, follow the rule book. Efficiency, organization, and professionalism net reward.
August 23 – September 23
The next few days prompt deeper study, exploration, questioning, and soul-searching. Put time and effort into it, but don’t struggle with it. Allow answers and better clarity to arise naturally. You are working your way through a process. By Monday/Tuesday, you should gain a better handle on it. Wednesday onward, set something new or more into play.
September 23 – October 23
Thursday/Friday keep you occupied, making time off this weekend that much more deserved. On the other hand, if you are obliged to show up for it, the stars keep the work running smoothly. Have you felt challenged, blocked, stymied, or drained of late? As of Saturday, you’ll start to pick up more speed. Monday/Tuesday gives you more to work with.
October 23 – November 22
Your ambition and tenacity net good rewards as the workweek closes out. Saturday/Sunday, you’ll spend your time and your money—both are likely well justified. You should feel you have made it to someplace good regarding a project, yourself, or another. Monday/Tuesday, stay on top of it, work your way through it. Wednesday can produce a sidetrack, a disconnect, or something fresh or extra.
November 22 – December 21
Friday’s sun/Saturn can bring something into the open that has escaped your awareness. On another note, you may create a deeper impression or impact than you realize. The opposite may also be true. Saturday/Sunday keep you, them, or it on full battery charge. Monday/Tuesday, prioritize. Get down to business, stay focused on the goal. Wednesday can be a betwixt and between day.
December 21 – January 20
By Friday, what’s on brew will start to show more of itself. If you don’t see it hit the full light of day, it will soon enough. The stars continue to keep it on a buildup through the weekend. Saturday/Sunday, talk it out, feel your way along. Monday/Tuesday, set the wheels in motion and/or make it official.
January 20 – February 18
Stay on top of it Thursday/Friday. A modification, attitude shift, or strategic manoeuvring may be necessary; progress is your net gain. Saturday/Sunday, make it fun for yourself. Monday/Tuesday put you back to work. Saturday through Tuesday set a productive backdrop. Talk it out and do what needs to be done. Wednesday shifts your energy or attention.
February 18 – March 20
Despite whatever challenge or obstacle is in your way, the stars help you make the most of what you have to work with, especially Thursday/Friday. Friday evening through Sunday, plans, intentions, recreation, and conversation deliver the goods. Monday/Tuesday, put yourself to work and get yourself better organized. Effort produces results. It’s as simple as that.
