How the Planets Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign This Week
This is a week to streamline your routines and pare back those activities that aren’t contributing much. As lively Mercury angles toward Pluto on Tuesday, you may feel the pull of ambition, but do you really want the extra responsibility? Think about this before you agree to anything.
There’s a full moon in dreamy Pisces the same day, so an unexpected opportunity could show up when you go with the flow. Letting go of the need to control everything doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll lose out, and you might even gain something in the process.

Fiery Mars is slowing down prior to turning retrograde, so you may be questioning all kinds of attitudes and assumptions. Perhaps one of the bigger issues to contend with is any belief that has become ingrained over the years.

In addition, a full moon in your social sector on Tuesday could coincide with a delightful encounter, one that you may want to take further.
