22nd  – mercury in Capricorn trine mars in virgo

A bumpy start to the week with sun in Capricorn challenging Saturn in Libra on the 19th, indicating feelings of responsibility, duty and obligation might weigh heavy on certain relationships or creative projects.

Blame and shame is the favourite game with Sun square Saturn; usually toward others, but can also encourage self-doubt and self-denial, so the idea is to stop being your own worst enemy and cut others plenty of slack.

A subtle and sensual aspect between Venus in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn on the 20th is fabulous for romance as well as financial interests, then next day the Sun moves from sensible Capricorn to freedom seeking Aquarius, shifting focus from the practicalities of planning to the dreams and vision behind it.

The sun sextiles (harmonises) with Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, amplifying the urge for freedom of thought and expression, and increasing the likelihood of events happening out of the blue that act as a catalyst for reaching that freedom.

Jupiter also squares (challenges) the Sun on this day, an indication that it’s easy to over-do things; Sun square Jupiter also makes finding a clear perspective a little more challenging in certain situations, as well as encouraging soap box stances on topics that could benefit more by a flexible approach.

The week concludes with a nice and harmonious trine aspect between Mercury in Capricorn and Mars in Virgo. This is great for detailed, constructive communication… texts and emails will give you the facts you are waiting for, while the motivation is strong to move forward and keep moving via dialogue and conversation.

It’s also a likely anti-dote for any residual disharmony from Sun/Saturn shenanigans earlier in the week, which can smooth out snags and tie loose ends up nicely (and neatly of course with Mars in Virgo).
