This week is defined by the shift of several planets. First, we witness Mercury moving into Scorpio, where we become far more focused on research, secrets, and a desire to uncover a hidden agenda. To add to this fervor, we see Pluto stationing direct after a lengthy retrograde period that began at the end of April. Pluto is the ruler of the underworld and is the master of all that is hidden and cloaked in subterfuge. The connection between Mercury stepping into Scopio (the sign that is co-ruled by Pluto) and Pluto is not to be ignored. The combination of these planetary events may actually point to a significant revelation of some great import. Curiosity is a key motivator for Mercury especially when immersed in the deep, dark waters of Scorpio. With Pluto regaining its influence by stationing direct, the potential for a great discovery hovers over this period quite powerfully. To heighten the tension, we see a direct opposition of Mercury to quirky and unpredictable Uranus late in the week. This opposition sparks a sudden and unanticipated revelation that could be shocking on several levels; great and small. How does this impact you? Each of us will feel this theme, but we will each feel it differently. Where will you feel it? If you have questions about your own unique destiny contact me at, www.chrisflisher.com, or www.turningofthewheel.com.
To add fuel to the planetary fire this week we also witness Mars, (the other ruler of Scorpio,) step into Libra. While in the cardinal air-sign, Libra, Mars is particularly active and effective. The air influence of Libra on the fiery planet of action is potent and may supply the oxygen necessary to drive the investigation that gets sparked by the Mercury, Pluto, Uranus connections. In this capacity, Mars serves as the spark or the trigger that sets events in motion. We may have to wait for the alignments to become more precise, but the underlying themes are there and are simply waiting for the exactitude to occur. While Libra is about balance, Mars, by contrast, is all action and aggression. In this setting Mars may provide the impetus to set the wheels in motion. It is this type of inter-relatedness of planet-to-planet, in specific signs, that provides the appropriate backdrop for such events to occur. Stepping back from this hot spot of potential, it is not hard to envision a spark (Uranus) that is driven by a need for balance (Mars in Libra) that fuels the curiosity (Mercury) to dig deeply and uncover the truth (Pluto.) Ultimately, the universe wants balance in all that it initiates and commands. Astrology identifies the players (the planets) and the roles they may play in the coming week.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your ruling planet, Mars moves into your opposing sign, Libra this week. Watch your temper and aggression. You may be trying to convince your partner of your point of view and you are capable of being quite forceful in that effort. Also be aware of an unexpected financial discovery. Follow your hunches.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Watch your mouth this week especially when working with a close friend or lover. Uranus in Taurus can deliver a startling string of events as Mercury in Scorpio opens up old wounds in a string of possible invective comes rushing back. Intellectual curiosity is the theme and it can be used to your greater good just as easily..
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Your ruling planet will be standing in opposition to unruly and unpredictable Uranus, so your intellect is bound to be firing on all cylinders. Ideas that may pop-up this week could be quite revolutionary, or destructive. You have the authority to issue restraint if you so desire. You may do well to show patience and curb your impulse.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You should see great potential when working with others this week. Ideas may come out of nowhere, but could be very worthy of your attention, nonetheless. Synchronistic events that pop up may present an angle you had not considered. Creativity is highly favored, so trust your imagination. This is how wisdom sometimes appears.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be aware of a rather prickly influence between your occupation and tour career. Are you striving for work/life balance? This could be a good time to pursue, but do not have any expectations because events may turn out quite differently than you had planned. Things may not be as you think. Resist impulsivity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Writing projects may hold some new promise especially if you are re-entering education or pursuing a travel plan. Unanticipated or revolutionary new ideas are likely and this would be a good week to investigate financial agreements. Research could reveal some rather startling results. Get two opinions on all matters and defer to the most responsible approach.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Sun is joined by Mars this week in Libra. You may feel empowered and even emboldened to go and do what you might not ordinarily attempt. Possible unexpected conversations pop up regarding money and investment strategies. The wise approach may be conservative and within your comfort zone. Overreaching might be futile.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): The investigator in you may be in fine form this week as Mercury stirs your Scorpionic desire to uncover secrets. A questioning mind is a valuable resource, but be careful where you aim your queries. More importantly you may be surprised by what you find. A rush to judgment could prove to be disastrous.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Jupiter, now direct, continues to influence your presence. You may feel expansive and full of largesse, but are you seeing accurately? Are you holding a false narrative about a subject that you’d rather ignore? Working with business alliances or in group settings may prove to be a bit combative or at least aggressive.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Train your emphasis on your career for best results this week. You can be responsible and motivated at the same time if you are looking to make a change. Be careful in group situations as things could spin out of control quite rapidly. This theme can go both ways so be mindful of sudden insights and innovative steps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You have great potential to turn a brilliant idea into a reality if you can avoid conflict or aggression. Words are easily misconstrued so be mindful of how you ask for what you want. Your motivation may involve travel, but you may have to make adjustments to make things work in the end.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An unanticipated shift could throw your travel plans into a tailspin. The unusual quality of such an event could involve paperwork or a new reading of an existing document that reveals an unlikely condition. You may be motivated to reconcile with others to move things forward, especially if you work for a large organization.
