Holy intensity, Libra! The week starts off on a rather extreme note as passionate Mars meets electrifying Uranus AND the fate-fueling North Node in Taurus and your eighth house of sex, investments and shared possessions. You want what you want—and you want it NOW! And with your powers of seduction so amplified, few would dare say “no” to you. Just be careful what you wish for because it could manifest at lightning speed. Even the dreamiest of desires come with a price tag. If you rush into a situation based on pure emotion—or your own competitive urges—you could be stuck with a hefty bill and a boatload of responsibilities you’re not keen to pay.
On Thursday, Mercury drifts into Virgo, activating your subconscious sector until August 25. If you need to clear the decks, you’ll have the mental capacity to start that process. You’ll also have opportunities—over the coming half-year—to examine old behaviors, vices and relationships that no longer fit into your lifestyle. Bid them adieu with a loving “good riddance!” ceremony! And don’t let anything interrupt your precious sleep! Mercury might unleash some brilliant ideas while you’re drifting and dreaming.
Weekend PSA for Libras: Slow down and let your body recharge. You may THINK you can run efficiently on fumes, but eventually that’s going to catch up with you. Your ruler Venus has been veering you toward workaholic territory, but Sunday’s alignment with soothing Neptune in your healing house may pull the emergency brake. You don’t have to derail your own bullet train—just make sure you’re fueling up with fresh produce and lean protein, while taking regular movement breaks.

Are you playing cat and mouse games with someone? While these pursuer-distancer chases can be fun in SMALL doses, they are a slippery slope.
