The Fishes start the week with exciting changes in your area of work, receiving unexpected money or an increase in earnings. A change is as good as a holiday. The 20th then brings a New Moon in charming Virgo, your 7th solar house. Despite opposition from those who count, you should be able to make a new start in serious relationships. Bear in mind that you are unlikely to emerge the winner in ego-related situations. This is not the best time to resist authority, or for aggressive attitudes that might otherwise cause your opponents to back down. You have reached the halfway point in your birthday year, which makes it a good time to measure your progress over the last six months. Venus enters Virgo on this day also, just as Mercury gets back to full speed after a retro phase. In weeks ahead, the possibility of establishing new partnerships and joint ventures is high, and existing partnerships should also flourish. Be thorough with information, and read through all documents carefully, as confusion and cloudy thinking are possible when Mercury opposes deceptive Neptune between the 19th and the 21st.
Mighty Jupiter and disruptive Uranus are in opposition from the 21st to October 7th. Unstable conditions surrounding your income and finances suggest that money may be gained and lost, and even gained again. The loss of money in one enterprise may inspire you to make it up in another. Losing (or gaining) an important relationship can cause you to establish new values and shift old priorities. New conditions challenge your basic principles, so that you abandon that which is no longer meaningful.
Then on the 22nd at the Equinox, the Sun moves into sensual Libra, your 8th solar house. Money and status (or lack of either) gained through inheritance, business partners or marriage takes the focus. Payment of debts, or debt collection are other concerns. You can use or develop skills to make you more independent. A medical emergency may arise. Elective surgery is favoured. Sexual matters and situations may be confronting, but increased determination makes you more demanding and critical. Your focus and concentration can contribute to progress in research and investigative projects, or help you acquire a deeper understanding of psychological motivations and behaviour. On the 22nd and the 23rd, be resolute in managing your relationships and friendships, take the lead in groups, express your thoughts in discussions and negotiations. From the 23rd to the 26th, don’t be the chameleon in satisfying the needs of others, especially relationships. Look within; be realistic about who you want to be and what you want with long range ideas and plans.
