Feeling scattered? With so many moving parts to your life, Aquarius, we wouldn't be surprised. Top priority for the week? Wrestling them all into a solid plan—in the name of your own serenity! Life has been BUSY, especially since June 4, when momentum-building Mars shifted into Cancer and your sixth house of daily work and wellness. Managing everyone's requests (and demands) has ratcheted up the stress. And if you blow off one more yoga class, you might just implode. Hit pause and get real. Are you taking on too much by your lonesome? Spreading yourself too thin? With fiery Mars in the frame you might have overshot the mark. Instead of quitting (as if!), call in those favors and rally the troops. Who owes you a solid, Aquarius? You've picked them up from airports, fed their pets and helped them load up the U-Haul for a move. So spare yourself some stress and let your people know what you need.
Also, could the robots do some of the work for you? All week long, geeky Mercury sails in close connection to Mars, inspiring you to put some clever systems into place. Run a search: Is there an app for that? Mercury governs mobile devices so why not make your phone even MORE utilitarian? Program those pop-up reminders, deploy digital trackers and plug tasks into project management apps. Of course, there's no replacement for legit human support, which you'll realize on Monday, when compassionate Neptune sways in tune with make-it-happen Mars. And on Tuesday, when brainy Jupiter squares Mercury, you'll require support from critical thinkers. Maybe it's time to hire an assistant or team up with someone who has strategic problem-solving skills.
Despite all the detail work that's pending, you could end the week with a huge sense of accomplishment. Let's be honest: The train has already left the station and there's no stopping it now, so you might as well keep yourself running on clean fuel. Reach for healthy food options—if you have time and funds for a designer latte, you have time to grab a green smoothie. Nibble on healthy snacks like raw almonds and summer fruit (cherries and watermelon? yes, please!) to avoid the spike and crash cycle that coffee and pastries bring. If you make time for any errands, run to the grocery store, even if you're just picking up healthy, prepared meals. And don't tell yourself you're too busy for exercise. Pop out for fifteen minute walks if that's all you can manage. Oxygen is brain food, so those deep (and ideally, cardio-level) breaths will nourish your brain, ultimately making you more productive when you return to the grind.
On Sunday, you may have no choice BUT to surrender when intensifier Pluto in your transitional twelfth house opposes Mars in your control-freakish sixth. To adapt the expression, "Man plans, the universe laughs." Despite your best efforts, there are certain moments that are simply beyond your control. Remain committed to your game plan while also being flexible. Accommodating a few last minute changes doesn't have to turn into a huge ordeal. Don't lose your sense of humor, Aquarius—it's always been the sharpest tool in your arsenal! If you've been staying busy to avoid your feelings, this weekend could turn that strategy on its ear. Stop pretending that your feelings aren't strong. That defensive stance could be blocking intimacy from blossoming. It's okay to admit that you want "more" from the one you adore—even if that means trading in a little bit of your own independence to cement the bond.
