In what is likely to be a busy and at time stressful week, the fashion gods are taking a proactive approach to warding off fashion emergencies before they can strike. By taking a smart approach to fashion, either through organisation or just being prepared, while at the same time refusing to create challenges where there are none, this can be the one stress free area of your life. With work/life balance likely to be an issue, refuse to sweat the small stuff.
In a week that begins with a Full Moon and then goes on to host several oppositions, the last thing you need is fashion emergencies where there are none or to make fashion another demand. This week the fashion gods are working to boost your confidence, with a chance to make the kind of choices that make you feel more empowered and confident, whether you are feeling it or not.
In the final days of your birthday month but with Venus, the planet of beauty staying on for another 12 days after it ends over the weekend, there is a chance to get the mechanics out of the way first. It is once the Sun leaves and your birthday month is over that Venus will come into her own. Get your new solar year off to an authentic start and then focus on a new or more authentic look, one that better represents who you are and where you are going.
In the final days of your birthday month there is going to be a sense of nostalgia and with Venus, the planet of beauty already in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart the fashion gods are also taking you on a nostalgic trip down fashion's memory lane. This will continue for another 12 days after your birthday month and new solar year begins over the weekend, with Venus not returning to Cancer and to look to the future until a day after a solar eclipse early next month.
In a week when there could be extra demands or times when life's pressures get on top of you, the fashion gods have the perfect solution. At the halfway point of her only visit to a social and serendipitous part of your chart this year Venus, the planet of beauty is encouraging you to take time out when you can. A chance to dress up could be the mood boost you need.
With the Sun leaving your career sector over the weekend but Venus staying on for another 12 days, she knows she can afford to bide her time. It is not until the second half of the week that you will really start to feel a surge in confidence across the income, work and career fronts. It is next week that the planet of beauty will come into her own, feeling more empowered to update your professional image.
You begin the week with the Sun and Venus in an adventurous part of your chart but end the week with only Venus, the planet of beauty here. It is while the solar spotlight is still on life's more adventurous options that you have a chance to incorporate this into every aspect of your life. In a week when work/life balance tensions are running high, this is the incentive to get it right. It is from Saturday that Venus will steer the spirit of adventure more towards your wardrobe.
In a week where there is a bit of everything and at times a bit too much thrown at you, the fashion gods are not just encouraging diversity but bring a fun element to changing things up. Venus, the planet of beauty is giving you permission to be fickle, trying different styles and letting your mood in the moment dictate your choices were possible. You might change what you're wearing more often each day, with the ability to change your mind relieving the potential for pressure. You don't have to follow the rules.
The week begins with a Full Moon in Sagittarius and this is likely to spark a need for authenticity. This comes at a time when Venus, the planet of beauty is already challenging you to be true to yourself, to a point where you might be rebelling against anything that isn't you. Even when there is a dress code at work or even a uniform, you will be looking for ways to put your own stamp on this.
Life has enough stress and tension this week to throw in fashion emergencies where there are none. Both Saturn and Pluto, in retrograde motion in Capricorn are under pressure this week and while this will clear by the weekend, the easier you can make things for yourself the better. The fashion gods are favouring a more practical and organised approach to fashion this week, with being organised ahead of time making life easier.
While this is likely to be a busy week and at times a little too busy, juggling too many balls and little time to hear yourself think, the fashion gods help to balance this. The biggest challenge this week will be knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, while the fashion gods are more focused on bringing fun into your life and your wardrobe. This is a timely reminder that life can't be all work and no play.
This could be one of the most hectic weeks of the year, with a number of different influences in play, all vying for your attention and often at the same time, creating the potential for stress if you let it. With the right work/life balance you can avoid the pitfalls and the fashion gods can help with that. Venus, the planet of beauty is taking a low key approach to fashion, keeping it simple and encouraging anything that works for you and makes life easier.
