This week is bookended by two slightly disharmonious lunar aspects in the Cardinal signs -- a Grand Cross on Monday, then a T-Square in which the Moon pulls in Pluto, Jupiter, Mercury, and Uranus on Sunday. Stress-induced frustration could stir up rebellion against the status quo.
On a more positive note, Mercury turns direct on Wednesday, ending a season of retrogrades that stretches back to early March. If you feel you have been dealing with setbacks, delays, and false starts for months, you will once again be able to move forward in life.
Also on the plus side are two resplendent lunar Grand Trines this week. On Thursday the party is in the Fire signs and includes the Moon, Uranus, Mercury, and Saturn, while Friday sees the productive meeting between the Moon, Sun, and Pluto in the hard-working Earth signs.
Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Hearts and Hates for your sign follow below!
♥ Forward focus
The sunny weather has finally arrived after a hot-and-cold springtime when nothing could really get off the ground. Set goals and get to work on building a better future now.

No one seems to be on the same page, and clashes between authority figures and rebel factions will rile things up.
