Things get better this month… but not this week.  Venus is still retrograde, so any alignments involved with it are going to be disadvantageous.  And we have one again — this time with Jupiter retrograde and Mercury.  This actually good be a good sign for those of us who might be entertained by a royal marriage coming apart, since that’s a very solid reading of this particular astrological arrangement.  The moon whips around the zodiac doing its thing.  Starting off the week, it aligns with the earth and Mars, indicating either trouble at home, a soldier leaving home, a soldier arriving home, or a houseboat colliding with a naval vessel.  Possibly a wakeboarding accident.  It’s not as clear as the alignment mentioned earlier.  On Friday though, Luna will move into a different alignment, this time with Venus retrograde and the sun.  Relationships are going to be particularly fragile on that day.

There are simply massive infidelity signs in the skies this week, with Venus retrograde in Gemini getting transits by both the moon and the sun (though not at the same time, thankfully).  The moon starts off the week in Aries though, and maybe that is the trigger that causes all of the domestic disputes throughout the week (the symbol of insanity in the sign of the goat?  Fun to watch, less fun to live through.)  Mercury in Cancer indicates hidden things are happening.  Sneaky things.  Mysterious secret that I would tell you about except I have no idea what they are because they are so secret.  Sometimes astrology isn’t as helpful as it’s cracked up to be.

I’m not going to lie to you.  This week’s draw sucks badly.  Things going wrong most of the week (especially in financial matters) and to top it all off, your work is going to be judged by an r-tard.  And then a second r-tard is going to come along and back up their opinion.  Stay strong.
