This is the second week in a row when the astrological challenges are formidable so each day you come through without someone having lost the plot is an achievement. On the other hand, you could use these same influences to work for you rather than against you. By which I mean taking a long hard look at any situation over which you have been papering the cracks. Is it time to admit that it is beyond repair? Or is there a move you could make, but you just don’t wish to make it? Reaching these kinds of conclusions and taking action will empower you. On Friday, Mercury turns direct breathing wind into your sails.
