PURE AND SIMPLE: THIS WEEK'S COSMIC ACTIVITY
You can read my monthly Sun sign column in the UK women's magazine Company. On this site, however, I offer energy predictions - clear and simple explanations of what the planets are doing in the skies above, and how this is likely to affect us here on Earth, with subtle variations for different Sun signs where appropriate.
★★★ Coming soon.......a totally new and inspirational way of writing horoscopes. In the meantime, here's the energy patterns for this week:
WEEK BEGINNING MONDAY 10TH MARCH 2014
TUESDAY: MERCURY SQUARE SATURN: PESSIMISTIC THINKING BUT INCREASED MENTAL DISCIPLINE
The clash of mind planet Mercury with gloomy, restrictive Saturn produces a rather pessimistic energy - at least now if you feel down in the dumps today with no real cause, you'll know why! You will also be more picky and will see the negatives and flaws in everything, and be more inclined to be critical of others as well as having a downer on yourself. So it is not a good day for making any decisions or having important discussions. On a plus side, however, you will be more inclined to think practically today and be capable of strong mental discipline so it's an ideal day for making plans and doing any work that requires a detailed or ordered approach. Conversations generally are likely to be more inhibited and restrained.
THURSDAY: SUN TRINE SATURN - CREATIVE SELF-DISCIPLINE
If you read this column regularly, you'll know all about Saturn's more miserly and gloomy influences, but here - for a pleasant change - is a shining example of positive Saturnine energy, as Saturn forms an harmonious trine with the Sun, bestowing fantastic self-discipline and self-control. It's a good day for knuckling down to work that requires concentration and considerable attention to detail as you will find it much easier to knuckle down to it and persevere, but more importantly, the energy is perfect for making long-term commitments - whether settling down long-term with someone, or buying a house. Recognition for hard work you've put in before may also come - in the form of promotion. This transit gives a serious, no-nonsense energy, so don't expect to be feeling in party mood and you will certainly not be feeling extravagant - in fact, on the contrary it's a good time to look at your material resources and think about how you can recycle or make better use of them, and how you can cut down on your energy bills. This is a transit of sense and wisdom and if you're currently debating a major long-term decision, older people are more likely to give you the best advice today than your contemporaries.
FRIDAY: MERCURY TRINE MARS - MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ENERGIES NICELY FUSED
A positive aspect combining the mental sharpness of Mercury with the raw, physical vigour and driven productivity of Mars, improving your chances of concentrating effectively and productively on mentally challenging tasks. It's an excellent day for any kind of studies, and given Mars' physical drive, it's also good for any sporting activities that rely on mental strategy or finely-tuned technical talents as well as physical strength, like tennis and golf.
SUNDAY: FULL MOON IN VIRGO
Full Moons heighten emotions, sensitivities and increase the potential for high drama in our lives. They are also associated with culminations, fulfillments, illuminations and realisations as they shine an uncompromising spotlight on our lives (particularly on the particular area of your life that the Moon is focusing on, according to your individual birth chart). Don't be surprised if you feel a little more wired/on edge/excitable//tense/passionate/all over the place or all of these things (!), particularly Sunday but also a couple of days either side. If you are already prone to being like this, and know the effect that Full Moons can have on you, you may want to make a conscious effort to rein your emotions in a bit - on the other hand, if you feel you are naturally quite self-restrained (sometimes to your detriment) and are feeling put upon, it may be just as well to express what you're feeling and let it all hang out ...
