Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday, so the first six days of the week are best spent being reflective and productive. It’s the midst of Aries Season, so a part of you may be feeling the urge to take spontaneous action, throwing caution to the wind. You know what you want, and you want it now. But with Venus and Jupiter currently retrograde, and Mercury getting ready to go retrograde, there’s also another part of you that’s whispering, “be patient, Scorpio”. Which part of you wins? That depends. This week, you’ll have to be extremely honest with yourself, Scorpio. Are you asking yourself to wait because you really know the timing’s not right? Or are you asking yourself to wait because you’re scared you won’t succeed?
You see, retrogrades are just as much a part of our life as direct planetary cycles. Too often, we psych ourselves out by thinking we can’t take any action during retrograde season, and even when major planets aren’t retrograde, we make up excuses as to why we shouldn’t take action right now. We tell ourselves things like, “Maybe I’ll do it next week once I get paid,” or, “I’ll wait until I accomplish ____ first and then take action”. But what good do these imaginary timetables do for us if the pressing desire to be bold and courageous lives within us? Ask yourself that this week, Scorpio. With 3 more days of New Moon magic lingering in the cosmos, you can’t really afford to second guess yourself or fill yourself with self-doubt. Being ridden with insecurities is so last year, and 2017 is about stepping into your greatness.
Remember that Jupiter, the Planet of Luck, will enter our sign in October 2017, blessing us with 13 straight months of Jupiter in Scorpio magic. So the current Jupiter in Libra transit is about tapping into our spiritual powers and cultivating them to the greatest of our abilities. This week, you may feel a need to be more selective regarding your friendships and romances. You won’t be able to share your energy with just anyone — you’ll be especially sensitive to who gives you life and who drains you. Make it a priority to listen to the signals your body and intuition is telling you about people. Energy doesn’t lie, so if you repeatedly feel off or uncomfortable around certain people or in certain locations, it’s a sign that you’re supposed to be in another space. Don’t torture yourself by filling your days with situations that leave you feeling depleted. You deserve to feel high off of life and filled with energy. Prioritize your well-being
With many planets in your health sector this week, you’ll be motivated to focus on creating sustainable health regimens that will improve your overall lifestyle. It could be as simple as drinking more water, or more intense of a decision like cutting off smoking, coffee, or alcohol. As long as you’re being true to yourself and you’re aware of the limits you can hold yourself to, the decisions you make this week are likely to be long-term decisions. It’s therefore a great idea to focus on your financial future this week too. Try to find a way to make budgeting fun. Instead of calling it “budgeting”, call it something that speaks to you, like “Manifestation Fund”. With many retrograding planets, it’s easy to fall into the trap of retail therapy or get too overwhelmed by all your responsibilities that you choose to turn a blind eye to it. But to actually face your financial picture directly is the first step towards creating a cycle of abundance. In order to move forward, you have to know where you are right now.
Romantically, the same logic applies. If you’ve been in denial of what needs to improve in your love life, this week is all about facing the music, and realizing that all it takes it a little fine tuning here and there in order to get everything into a harmonious vibe again. Venus Retrograde has really made you re-evaluate your values and thought patterns. You may have let your pride and ego stand in your way of being vulnerable or approachable. Fears of getting hurt again, even if they’re illogical, may have creeped into your mind, and now you’re stuck in limbo, unsure of whether to try to move on from such feelings or remain where you are and ruminate on them. The answer will become increasingly clear as Venus ends its retrograde next week, so there’s no need to make huge romantic decisions this week. It’s a week best spent on self-care, so spoil yourself to a massage or take yourself out to your favorite restaurant. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, take time to date yourself, know yourself, and fall more deeply in love with yourself. That way, everyone else will know exactly how loving you should be done.
