What starts as a carefree, devil-may-care week grows increasingly resentful and paranoid as time goes on.
Wednesday is an incredibly ebullient, exhilarating day, with open-minded Mercury trining maverick Uranus in the fiery signs Leo and Aries. On the same day, a warm-hearted Lunar Grand Trine occurs in the Earth signs, bringing sincerity and gratitude.
By Friday, however, Mercury squares off against angry Mars in suspicious Scorpio, dredging up obsessive doubts. Once Mercury moves into Virgo on Saturday, a more cautious attitude will prevail.
Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Then keep reading for the Hearts and Hates for YOUR sign this week!
♥ The stability to try new things
It's always easiest to take risks when you're feeling particularly grounded. Wednesday is such a day, when emotional security allows for experimentation.
☹ Deeply disgruntled
Tinder-keg Uranus turns retrograde on Friday, and resentful feelings can pop up to the surface, as neurotic Mercury is squaring offended Mars on the same day.
