Your energy and drive are in high gear this week, but obstacles may appear in your path that can frustrate your plans. Use this time for research and make plans for next week when you have more of a green light. Romantic partners may be in need of extra attention and affection at this time so try to give them what they need even if it is difficult to fit into your schedule. The little extra you give will definitely be worth it.
With your ruling planet Venus entering sensual Scorpio you need to be ready for all types of romantic drama for next few weeks. You may have to make decisions about a power struggle between your significant other and family and friends. The good news is that every wants a piece of you, the bad news is that they may tear you apart in the struggle. Find a way to be unavailable when things get too crazy.
Your ability to use charm and “purdy” words will take you far over the next few weeks, but know that you can also fall prey to the sweet talkers yourself. Keep your wallet closed as people close to you may expect you to take care of their debts and will use emotional blackmail to make you feel responsible.
The tools that you need to obtain your goals will almost magically be at your disposal at this time, but if you don’t use them your chances for success will pass you by- so get to work! You can’t force anyone to see your point of view in an important family matter, but you can’t allow them to make decisions for you either. Take a stand for yourself and other family members and don’t let guilt get in the way.
Be careful not to push colleagues and coworkers too far this week. You want to get things done, but will need their help and a little schmoozing will go a lot farther than criticism and threats. Make the time for romance, with passionate Mars in your sign you may feel frustrated if you don’t get the physical and emotional release that you need. As long as you give your partner what they need, a little quality time, all will be well.
With Mercury leaving your home sign you may feel a little tongue tied this time so it is best to save any important talks for later in the month when your words will flow more easily. Take some time to evaluate your closest relationships to see which ones are working and which ones may need adjustments. You have no shortage of potential friends and lovers, so you don’t need to hold on to anyone or anything that isn’t in your best interest.
Address any nasty gossip with your usual class and charm because being defensive will not help. Once everyone sees that you are not reacting they will lose interest and whomever is spreading the bad word about you will fall on their face. Give extra thought to any travel plans you may have at this time and make sure that all of the details are locked down to avoid delays and confusion.
Your phone will be ringing off the hook this week, but if don’t have the energy to deal with some of your more high maintenance relatives let it go to voice mail. Use your popularity to move ahead in business at this time; everyone will be more than happy to do favors for you right now.
Your circle of friends may be interfering with your love life, but only with the best of intentions. It may be in your best interest to listen to what they have to say, because they know you so well and truly care about you, but you must put your foot down when it comes to them getting too involved. Leave your personal baggage at home this week when you go to work because you need to be focused on the great opportunities that are coming your way!
Add an extra spoonful of sugar when asking for favors this week just to make sure that you get everything you need in a timely manner. It may not be your style to be so sweet, but at the moment a little extra charm can go a long way. Make sure that you are dressed for the occasion when you get asked out at the last minute- you don’t want to wearing heels for a walk on the beach.
All of your hard work on an important project is being noticed, even if it doesn’t feel like it, you are appreciated and the rewards are on their way as long as you remain patient. Long distance romances are more than difficult, but if your heart is in it give it a chance.
It’s time to check in with family members to make sure that everyone has everything they need. Some of your relatives have trouble asking for help so you need to keep an eye on them. Romantic plans may need to be adjusted so that you and your partner’s schedules stay in synch. Keep career goals on the down low because jealous colleagues will take any chance they can get to jump in front of you, so keep them in the dark for now.
