Thursday is one of the most productive days so far this year! Go-getter Mars in hard-working Taurus sends a harmonious trine to Pluto in success-seeking Capricorn, while there is a vibrant lunar Grand Trine in the Fire signs, adding a zesty dose of zeal and optimism.
The weekend, however, is more tense. The Sun opposes Jupiter on Friday, creating a competitive environment where everyone wants to be the most influential and unique. A square between fragile Venus in self-flagellating Pisces and critical Saturn on Saturday oozes bullying energy. When Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday, people may choose to check out of the drama and hang out on their own instead of deal with confusion and miscommunication.
Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Hearts and Hates for your sign follow below!

Pragmatism and enthusiasm join forces on Thursday, pushing us to work with zeal on our deepest ambitions.
☹ Train-wreck weekend
People will be feeling ego-mad and super-sensitive this weekend, leading to confusion and the need for a time-out on Sunday.
