The week ahead is setting the stage for some detailed communication with our loved ones. And this is a very good thing! As long as we are operating from a place of honesty and integrity and communicating with others from a place of love and compassion, the structures and relationships in our lives will become more stable, thus making us feel more more secure.
By the weekend, we may feel a push and pull between the needs of our partner and close friends and the work and errands that we need to get done. Be sure not to neglect one for the other—this could mean that we skip out on that last errand to not miss date night, or it may mean we can go to brunch with our partner, but will need to spend the afternoon doing laundry and catching up on emails.
Finally, this Sunday’s New Moon in Virgo is all about setting intentions related to putting our attention on the tangible details that bring us the life we desire. This moon also asks us to re-evaluate how we balance service to others, as we need to make sure we are taking care of ourselves before we can pour out our energy to others!
