As Mercury goes direct in Libra on the 19th, you’ll begin to feel more balanced as a result. It will still be in its shadow for several weeks, so there may be some kinks. In general, though, you will begin to gain some clarity lost during the retrograde, and communication will smooth out as well. During the Aries Full Moon on the 20th, you will have the opportunity to become brave and bold in times of conflict and competition. You will be able to reach that point at this time. Be gracious about it.

Do your best with it, considering the energies from the Full Moon may last for a few days. Then, on the 22nd, Mars in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn. As a result, conflicts may become bitter and intense. You may end up having arguments and confrontations that are stressful. Therefore, be careful. 

Then on the 23rd, the Sun moves from Libra into Scorpio (Happy Birthday, Scorpio), which is a time for you to work on healing some inner wounds if you haven’t found closure in a relationship, professional or personal, in the past. So we’ll see how your sign does this week. 

Aries – You will be very chatty with others after Mercury goes direct, and you will find it easier to express yourself. If you reveal too much, you could find yourself talking about someone you don’t like or who cheated you out of something. It will come back to you. 

Taurus – During your evaluation of skills this week, you may discover that others in your field have better skills than you – or better skills than you think you have. That will make you feel envious. But, at the same time, that can also indicate that you need to evaluate and look into improving some skills you have if you choose to do so. 

Gemini – Mercury going direct will give you more ideas for projects or other work. You may discuss them at meetings but be prepared for someone to shoot your ideas down because they think they are better. Whenever they do that, you should say nothing and stick to why you think your ideas are the best. 

Cancer – For some time now, you have been striving to find balance within yourself. This week, however, may be difficult for you. With the Full Moon, your sign naturally makes a square to Aries and Libra. Due to the problematic planetary influences this week, you may lose your equilibrium and explode if something upsets you. You may feel taken advantage of again at work or home. Having to deal with unpleasant repercussions may result in you exploding with anger. You should spend a lot of time alone and center yourself. 

Leo – You may feel threatened this week, as a competitor may do something more creative than you. If you use this opportunity to learn about what they are doing or allow jealousy to take over, you will find sneaky ways to steal their clients or customers. You don’t want to do that since you will be found out, which can ruin your reputation. If you do not have a business, you may develop issues with a coworker you think is doing a better job than you and may feel the urge to sabotage them. You should not do it. 

Virgo – There may be drama around you this week, and you will avoid it by working. Whether you are working extra hours or organizing your home does not matter. While you want to avoid drama, you are at risk of isolating yourself, making you feel even more anxious. That is not something you want to do. 

Libra – Mercury going direct will have a substantial impact on you due to your sign. You will find that you not only think clearly, but you also have an easier time conceiving ideas for work and personal projects. In addition to the harsh aspects of the other planets and the Full Moon, you’ll feel aggressive once the Sun leaves Libra. In meetings, you may find that, like Aries and Gemini, you want to make it known that your ideas are the best. 

Scorpio – There might be a tendency to make mountains out of molehills this week, as small inconveniences will seem insurmountable. Due to this, you might be difficult to work with when it comes to projects and such, and you won’t be an ideal member of any team. However, when the Sun enters your sign, you will begin to slow down and feel more peaceful. 

Sagittarius – Though you have been trying to stay logical and calm, the intensity of the Full Moon may cause you to lose your temper, which you will feel incredibly guilty about whether it happened at work or at home. It is best to exercise or kickbox in order to release that angry energy at the time, which will lessen the chances of it happening. 

Capricorn – When Mercury goes direct, you’ll be able to think more logically and clearly. In addition, you will be motivated to learn how to be a better leader. Even so, you will do your best to keep frustrations at bay and to focus on self-improvement regardless of the tension from the energies this week. 

Aquarius – It will be your responsibility to mediate arguments and tensions experienced by others. It will stress you out and want to be as helpful as possible, but based on your humanitarian side, you will want to do it. Stay balanced by focusing on your creativity and things that make you happy. 

Pisces – In this week, you will be prone to self-doubt, and it may come from something critical that someone says to you or something you discover about someone you knew back in the day who seems to be doing better than you. You may feel insecure and defensive as a result. It is best to focus on your positive qualities and how you have made positive changes in the past. 

I am sure you will navigate this week in the same way that you navigated other challenging periods.
