June - 22nd July
You have a bit of a tricky day on your hands. Mars and Pluto, the planets of war and revolution aren't getting on, yet as the best of friends this is more a bad hair day for both. With one focused on home and family matters and the other on your relationships, it could feel like there are a lot of demands or even pressure on those fronts. Yet playful and romantically charged forces have the perfect solution. Love really does conquer all, with taking time out to have fun or to smell the flowers the perfect way to avoid sweating the small stuff.
At a point in the year where life is getting busier, but where finding a balance between work and play is even more important, working smarter is a must. An alignment between the Moon and Mercury on the work front is just what you need, with the Moon's intuitive edge merging with Mercury's intellectually savvy edge. With a mix of intuition and logic, imagination and intelligence you'll find it easier to work smarter, knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
As much as a playful and romantically charged New Moon is going to dominate the weekend and this has some powerful clout, this is also a good time to get stuck in and get things done around the home. As Mars moves into his final three weeks in your home and family sector, he is giving you the energy and drive to get up and go, making things happen and getting things done. If you're planning on catching up over the holidays you may find that you've lost your motivation by then.
