Restless but easily distracted, our moods could wander strangely this week as we bunny hop between dreamland and action. The Aries Sun and a square between Mercury and Uranus can make us long for a change and encourage us to get things done and make it hard to just rest. But the two planets which signal our emotions, Venus and Mars, are now both in sensitive, receptive, dreamy Pisces.

This opposition between Aries Sun and Libra Moon highlights both our willful need to express ourselves and our desire to invest in our relationships. We need to find a balance, a way to share our time that both honors our inner callings and supports our beloveds, rather than feel that as an impossible imposition.

The Moon heads in the Scorpio Saturday night. New information made push us to change our minds Sunday or Monday as mental Mercury conjunct transformative Uranus under that thoughtful, broody Scorpio Moon.
