This Week in Astrology: It's a Great Time to Ask for a Raise

Find out what's in the stars this week.

Hopefully everyone remembers the trickster Mercury is retrograde, so they can avoid confusion and/or hurt feelings.  This retrograde cycle is highlighted at the beginning of the week when Mercury and the Sun conjunct each other.  Normally, a Sun Mercury conjunction is not a huge event, it happens often, but this one is a little more important as the retrograde cycle, the sign Pisces and the planet Neptune heighten the energy. So during this timeframe things can seem even more confusing.  Late Sunday and most of Monday will be the most significant  times for this energy. Make sure you are clear and make sure you double check all plans or promises, and remember not to take things personally. It's just energy running amok.

Monday into Tuesday, the planet Venus squares the planet Jupiter, sometimes this is to much of a good thing.  We may over eat, party to much, or feel way to emotional we want everything we see in excess, it can be fun, but remember we pay the bill at the end of the week.  Go ahead and eat but be ready to diet later. This is also a very romantic energy, just be careful not to over commit in a relationship as you may very likely change your mind later on, or your other may not be as “steady” as you think.  This is a time to heal some hurts in a relationship as the asteroid Chiron is conjunct Venus during this time period, so if you feel hurt, ignored or need to talk about something t his is the time to do it, things may change later, but you at least clear the air and bring things out into the open.  Wed the 6th will bring you the opportunity to solidify your  commitments and make a plan on how to heal those relationship hurts as Venus and Saturn are in a trine aspect a very grounding and solid energy.  This is the day to commit to change, so talk about what needs to change early in the week make the commitment to the change mid week.

This Saturn Venus energy is also a good energy for finances, it’s a time to make choices on what you want to accomplish financially, it’s a great time to ask for a raise, especially if you are a water or earth sign with planets around the 11th degree, give or take a couple of degree’s.  This is also a wonderful time to create a long term plan, keep in mind Mercury is retrograde and can change the greatest of your planning so stay open and flexible.
