It’s time for our minds to play catch-up. Mercury, the messenger of the gods, is taking over while emotions ebb from last week’s Cancer Full Moon. He’s hosting a week packed with thoughts, information and messages, leading to both action and confrontation.

The first round of fodder for thought involves matters dear to the heart (or wallet). As he and their ruler Venus move into a growth aspect to Venus early Tuesday, watch for indications of improvement — or, at least, a new regime — in relationships, in finances, in feelings of self-worth, and in general in your value system. This tete a tete is issuing an interim status report on the reevaluation of all those matters the Venus retrograde is encouraging.

Further evidence of stabilizing (or containment) comes by Thursday, when Venus meets Saturn, lord of structure and commitment, on the ecliptic early in the morning. Friday demonstrates the benefits as Mercury dances with Venus on the ecliptic, then passes the baton to her consort and champion Mars.

A unified theory of life is firming up in you and propelling you forward. Mind, heart and will are team players (at the moment, anyway): You know your heart, what’s most important to you and what you want, and all that is translating directly into your agenda, drive and actions. Everybody’s walking their talk as the weekend approaches. It won’t be hard to see who’s in your language family.

Even so, life is not all sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. There are still bills to pay, commitments and responsibilities to carry out, and walls to test. Consciously or not, your mind faces all of these before sunrise Saturday and works out what to do about them. The aftermath is an epidemic of decisions, demands, conversations that can not be avoided or delayed, and a backwash of anxiousness that maybe you said too much. You won’t and you didn’t. You had to say what you said. The same goes for the source of every not entirely comforting message you receive. It’s all stoking personal growth, healthy expression of power and, ultimately, supportive and reliable connections.

So open those minds this week! They’re not merely trapping information, but also turning it into fuel. Remember:  your mindset affects how you experience life. You stand to improve both this week.
