Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Candle colour: Yellow
Incenses: Lavender or fennel
Crystals: Citrine or yellow calcite
Use Wednesdays for spells for money-making ventures, learning new things, passing examinations and tests, house moves and travels, overcoming debt and repelling envy, malice and deceit.
Where possible, work in a windy place or when the clouds are moving fast across the sky.
Spiritual love will be on your mind after Tuesday, but there might be a dark side to these thoughts. If you’re convinced that the only way to truly love someone is by sacrificing yourself, then you’re sabotaging the vast well of romantic potential. You might be keeping love at arm’s length because you’re convinced that the pain and suffering connected to love just isn’t worth it. Perhaps it’s time to erase this script and write a new one. Start by tuning out what a friend has to say about matters of the heart on Wednesday. Don’t allow his or her baggage to become yours.
If you’re single and looking for love, beware of the potential to search for romance on the Internet with complete naiveté. You may be susceptible to someone’s catchy — but embellished — profile on a dating website. In fact, your longing for romance might be so strong that you ignore all of your instincts. Avoid the common Internet dating mishaps, and if you’re ready to meet someone who has passed round one of testing, be certain to do so at a public place. That way, if your potential dream date turns out to be a frog you won’t be as distressed.
Monday and Tuesday will be your best days for romance this week. That’s because the sensitive Moon will move through your true love sector during this time — a pattern that allows you to feel more open. Not only will you give love freely, but you’ll also give yourself permission to accept it. By Wednesday, however, it’s likely you’ll be in a serious frame of mind, which may not leave much room for sentiment. Expect distraction at the workplace.
Emotional sensitivity may flare up as you and your sweetheart have a conversation that leaves you feeling anything but warm and fuzzy inside. In fact, this talk might feel like your lover went from having a heart of gold to a heart of stone. Not only will there be cold words that you feel are inconsiderate, but you’ll feel so hypersensitive that it makes you take them extra personally. Hopefully, you’ll chalk this up to a bad day your honey had. If not, he or she will definitely have some explaining to do!
You might notice your mind wandering more than usual this week. In particular, it appears you’ll be consumed with an erotic fantasy that may involve your current lover — or possibly someone you wish was your lover. There’s nothing wrong with a little daydreaming every now and then, but you might want to keep things in check if you notice that you’re forgetting to tend to the current reality of your relationship. On Wednesday, especially, it’s likely to require your attention.
Expect to shine a bright light on your partner after Tuesday, thanks to the Sun entering your relationship sector. You’ll have an opportunity to breathe new life into your love connection as you and your mate explore the more spiritual side of your union. Now will be a great time to enjoy the arts together. Take in a concert, art show or film. You’re likely to feel an urge to connect in a way that’s beyond the physical realm now. Reach for it.
You’re probably not going to have an easy time convincing your sweetheart to learn from your example about money matters. These days, you’re extremely frugal, and that’s likely due to necessity. Perhaps you’re saving up for a major purchase, such as a home, car or other investment. Or, it’s possible you’ve experienced a downsizing in your income and as a result must reprioritize your spending. Unfortunately, it appears that your lover isn’t supporting you along this thrifty vein this week. You won’t appreciate it.
After Tuesday, you might put your best foot forward in an effort to find — and keep — that one true love. The Sun will begin its annual tour through your romance sector, shining a light on your ability to experience joy and love. You’ll also yearn for a lover who craves a spiritual, as well as physical, bond. Lovemaking will become more of a transcendental experience if you’re in a relationship. Go ahead, get lost in each other’s eyes. After all, they’re the window to the soul.
You might ache to share the deepest parts of your soul with someone special, yet find yourself unable to open up. What’s going on? Are you afraid of rejection, or of revealing something about yourself that your lover might deem as too ugly to appreciate? Have you actually been rejected in the past for communicating exactly who you are? If so, you might be extra anxious and convinced that history will repeat itself. Push past this fear if you ever hope to achieve true intimacy with your mate.
Communicating the romantic inside of you will be easier than usual this week. In fact, you’re likely to dream up a fairy tale. Whether real or imagined, you’ll get more joy out of this story if you keep it to yourself. A friend is likely to harsh your mellow on Wednesday, and the last thing you’ll want to do is share your romantic musings with him or her. Still, he or she may need your support, so if you’re able to tear yourself away from listening to those love songs for a bit, do so.
You may feel as if you can’t get a word in edgewise during conversations with your partner. Part of the problem may be that you’re having greater difficulty clarifying what it is you want to say. As a result, you may appear to stumble in your words, which your mate finds frustrating. Try not to allow this temporary block to unravel you. It might be a better idea to write your thoughts down first. Even better: Save important conversations for after the end of the month.
As much as you might hope to discuss one of your anxieties with your partner, it’s possible he or she won’t be receptive to it now. Another potential rub in your relationship bliss may be that you begin to notice a fundamental difference in your spiritual beliefs. Before you panic, take the time to think through whether or not this is a deal breaker, or if it’s an opportunity to open your mind up to a new vantage point.
A domestic flare-up might lead to a heated argument between you and your partner on Wednesday or Thursday. This will be a sensitive subject, but if you remember that you’re meant to work together to resolve the matter, it’ll make a world of difference. “Who’s the boss?” is the last question you need to ask this week when it comes to your love life. If you’re too busy trying to remain in charge, you might win the battle. Unfortunately, you might also lose the love.
An emotionally charged conversation might leave you feeling wounded. At the same time, however, it might be necessary to consider how honest you’ve been about verbalizing your feelings to a loved one. By Thursday, a conversation with a colleague about your love life might not go well so be careful how much personal information you choose to divulge. If there are any feelings of jealousy or competition at the office, one coworker in particular might use your emotional vulnerability against you. Be aware.
Sometimes, the only way to get back to harmony in your love life is through conflict. This week, you will certainly feel that is true. On Thursday, you’ll need to address a difficult setback in your relationship. This may have to do with your sex life — especially if you and your lover have experienced tension in this department lately. Try not to turn this into a blame game or you’ll only wind up taking a defensive stance. Voice your concerns in a non-confrontational way and be willing to reveal where you’re vulnerable. A breakthrough is possible.
You’re already one of the most sensitive zodiac signs, thanks to being ruled by the emotionally charged Moon. This week, a Full Moon in your sign will only trigger this even further. You might shed tears of sorrow about any existing unhappiness in your love life, or tears of joy if you’re in a rare position of bliss. Truth be told, these days love is not an easy journey for you. You’re at a crossroads in your relationship, and on Wednesday you might experience an almost intuitive moment of clarity. Either way, revealing your feelings will not prove detrimental; it’ll only demonstrate your strength.
You might feel as if you need to guard your feelings this week, but if so try not to shut out your romantic potential or your current lover in the process. Self-protection might become the single greatest barrier that prevents you from achieving intimacy. Thankfully, this does not have to be the case. What if you used your courageous heart to love harder and stronger instead of worrying about the slight possibility of rejection? Ah, that approach would be life changing. Consider it.
If you find yourself wrapped up in a lover’s quarrel, try to disengage from the heat of the moment. Consider talking to a friend about the current situation in your personal life, because it’s possible you’ll receive viable emotional insight from a pal. Even so, an argument with your sweetheart might not be avoidable at this point. If you find yourself in a deadlock, ask yourself if it’s more important to be in love or to be right. Act accordingly.
If you’re single and looking for love, there will be a happy prospect opening up for you after Saturday. This glimmer of hope will only beam brighter by the end of the month, but for now hold on to the hope that your love life will get better — because it will! In the meantime, this week you might feel too distracted with domestic strife to even care about your romantic needs. That’s OK — take care of your family drama. Love will happen soon enough. Remember: What’s meant to be yours will not pass you by.
If you’ve been feeling anger or resentment building in a romantic relationship, you might reach a tipping point this week. You might have tried to convince yourself that holding your frustration in may diffuse the situation, but in reality the opposite is happening. You’re likely to feel at the point where it’s more painful to remain quiet now than if you’d finally explode and lay your feelings out in the open. Congratulations … this will lead to progress. And (hopefully) healing.
If you’re feeling hypersensitive about a fiscal matter between you and your partner then this week, things may come to a head. You might realize that your mate is in a precarious situation when it comes to money — one that you find unsettling. Or, it’s possible that the two of you are trying to come together to make a major purchase (such as a home or new business venture or even a car) and one of you has spotless credit while the other’s is quite messy. Now is the time to address all the holes in your financial relationship.
An emotionally charged week is likely for you and your partner thanks to Wednesday’s Full Moon falling in your relationship sector. These days, if you’re feeling disconnected from your mate you’re especially aware of the impact it’s having on your union. Make a decision this week to relink as a couple physically and spiritually. Cuddle, spend time at home together and don’t forget the pillow talk! Your sweetheart needs TLC. So do you.
If you’re having trouble reconciling a difference of ideology or spiritual beliefs with your lover then this week you might feel that you’ve reached a breaking point. On Thursday you and your sweetheart might realize that it’s no longer acceptable to simply “agree to disagree” — at least not on this matter. There’s likely to be a fundamental difference in a core conviction between the two of you. Will it be a deal breaker? Time will tell, but in the end you’ll both need to be true to yourselves if you expect to remain true to one another.
This week your love life might receive plenty of attention – most likely in a warm, sentimental “let’s have dessert first!” kind of way. If you’ve recently started to date someone new it’s possible that you and your sweetheart will exchange those first sweet words of love to one another. You might also take the relationship to the next level physically, if you haven’t already done so. An affair may reach a crucial point — one where you’ll choose to go all in or possibly end it once and for all.

“Wodensdag” (Old English)
“Othinnsdagr” ( Old Norse)
Odin/Woden is the Norse God of magic, battle fury, protection, inspiration, shaman ecstasy, consciousness and communication.
If men can accept their female side as Odin/Woden did, women can surely accept their male side. This day is the “hump day” or “half past the week day.” It is a day of balancing physically, mentally and spiritually.
You can accept Odin/Woden as the All-father and the Omnipotent God when you realize that he became more balanced by accepting the intuitiveness, emotions, sensitivity and the wisdom of women. He also considered Frija/Frigg as his equal and consulted her on all important matters. Her advise always weighed heavily in his decisions. Women in Norse mythology, although not as much is written about them as men, were considered equal with men in property, warring, and decisions. Romanization (getting conquered by the Romans) changed the status of women later on. We are still healing from the effects of the Romanization!
The Rune of choice for this day is Ethel (OE), Othala (G), or Othal (ON). This Rune represents the hearth, the home, justice and honoring our ancestors.
There’s no way around it: You’ll have a serious choice to make about your intimate life this week. Are you happy with the one who shares your bed? If not, admit it. If you are, however, then it’s time to ask yourself why you’re hiding something from him or her. Come on, you know you are … even if it’s a lie of omission just to protect your mate. Stop lying to yourself, Aries — you know you’re only trying to protect yourself. It’s time to access your courage and be willing to share what it is you take great pains to avoid.
A deep conversation with your mate will bring you closer this week. On Monday, Mercury and Saturn will connect in your relationship sector, allowing you to make a realistic decision that’s long overdue. This may have to do with a change in how you handle finances together. Perhaps you’ll take on a joint account or loan, or one of you will help dig the other out of a financial hole. Your ability to achieve security in your relationship and your finances at the same time will be high. Use it well.
With the Moon touring your romance sector from late Wednesday afternoon into Friday night, you’ll have a stronger emotional focus on matters of the heart. These will be ideal days to go on a first date with someone special if you’re single. If you’re attached, you’ll have an opportunity to rekindle the sparks between you and your lover. On Saturday, the Sun will send a supportive beam to Uranus, and your relationship will feel a bolt of stimulation, thanks to an event on your social calendar. It’ll be a little “out there,” but that’s exactly what you’ll enjoy most about it.
Are you and your new sweetheart ready for a commitment? This week, you may decide that the answer is a resounding “yes!” Expect a firm decision between Monday and Wednesday. Also, on Wednesday, if you’re already in a committed relationship you and your partner might have a conversation about starting a family, or, if you already have children, adding to your clan. No matter what’s happening in your love life, Thursday will be a day of mutual indulgence. Go ahead and spoil the one you love — just a little!
Love might be an adventure this week, and if so you’ll feel determined to make the most of it. If you’re feeling a sense of wanderlust, you might decide to take matters into your own hands and arrange an impromptu trip with your sweetheart. You and your love may have talked about visiting an exotic locale that’s interested you both for quite some time, and it’s possible you will decide by Saturday that now is the time to go for it. Living your life out loud is your motto, Leo, and this week you plan on doing exactly that.
A creative project you and your sweetheart are working on may be your focus this week. Expect to make great strides in this endeavor, especially by Wednesday. You might also talk more about ways to have fun with your lover — both in and out of the bedroom. What hobbies or other recreational activities do you enjoy together? Do you have a shared passion besides each other? This will be an ideal week to explore whatever it is that gives you both joy as a couple.
The Moon will tour your sign from late Wednesday afternoon until Friday night, prompting you to wear your heart on your sleeve. You’ll easily reveal your emotions to someone special, and this honesty is exactly what needs to happen to move a burgeoning relationship forward. Don’t waste your time with anxiety — honor your genuine feelings and share them with who matters most to you. On Saturday, a snap decision between you and your partner will excite you. You’ll see the possibilities that lay ahead.
When it comes to your love life, you’ll be dead serious about whatever you say to your mate this week. If you make a promise, you have every intention to keep your word and you’ll go to the ends of the earth to make sure that happens. If you don’t mean exactly what you say, then you’re not going to say it. A significant pledge or decision with your lover might take place by Wednesday, and if so it’ll be something that adds depth to your already solid bond. If single, you may yearn for a deeper connection with someone on Saturday and Sunday.
You may feel overly optimistic about finances on Thursday, and as a result you may purchase an extravagant gift for your partner. Alternatively, you and your mate could decide to make an investment based on hope and faith. Take a step back and make sure you’re not putting your money into something that’s not secure. A little risk may be fine, but throwing caution to the wind altogether may cost you both — big time. If single, you might suddenly meet someone on Saturday who makes your knees weak. Delicious!
When your lover is your best friend, you have a special kind of blessing in relationship. On Wednesday, you’ll likely feel you’ve won the cosmic jackpot in that sense. The capacity you have to experience social simpatico and a true camaraderie with your lover will be incredible. Then, on Thursday, you and your partner might decide to learn something new together. Consider a class, workshop or even a webinar. Intellectual stimulation will bring you closer in every way possible.
With the Moon touring your 8th House of Intimacy from Monday through Wednesday afternoon, you may feel deep desires stirring inside of you that will be impossible to ignore. Perhaps you’re longing to be with someone, but your fear of rejection keeps you from initiating any potentially meaningful contact. Or, it’s possible that you’re in a relationship but feel extremely vulnerable about revealing too much too fast. The Moon in this part of your chart will help break down your walls. Surrender.
Your emotional focus will be on relationships between Monday and Wednesday, thanks to the Moon touring your 7th House of Partnership. During these days you may forge a deeper connection with your mate — or at least you’ll try. One thing is certain: You’ll have an almost intuitive grasp on what your sweetheart is feeling early in the week. Use it to nurture your bond rather than make your lover feel exposed. On Thursday, you and your love can expect a magnificent and socially fulfilling adventure. Wonderful!
If there’s a relationship skeleton in your closet, you will need to handle it like a grown up this week. A serious decision is looming regarding how much of yourself you’re willing or able to share with your mate. On Wednesday, expect an absolute test regarding this situation, as your privacy buttons are sure to be pushed. Ready or not, it’s decision time. If you’re not willing to go all-in, then perhaps it’s time to let go. You can’t have it both ways.
If you’re single, your attention may turn toward someone who is from a background quite different from your own this week. Your heart will long for someone who’s willing to take that magic carpet ride with you, as you both explore a whole new world. If you’re in a relationship, Wednesday might be a difficult day. Expect a test in your commitment or a feeling of being overburdened in your partnership. After Sunday you’ll find it easier to talk to your mate about a difficult topic.
When Venus sails into your 8th House of Shared Intimacy on Tuesday, your erotic side will surely be stimulated. Now is the time to share one of your fantasies with your mate — even if it’s a little on the taboo side. In fact, revealing your desires in an open, honest way will be the fastest way to assure your mate that you’re all-in. In addition to sexual benefits, you might learn that your spouse or partner is about to benefit you financially. He or she may receive a raise or hefty bonus.
If you’re single, this Wednesday you might experience feelings of isolation. Try not to give in to despair if you’re going through a dry spell. Realize that there is a time for everything — including love. There are valuable reasons why you’re going solo right now, and they have everything to do with defining what it is you truly expect in a love relationship. Do the work and love will arrive when it’s meant to be. If you’re married, you and your mate are about to enjoy a special phase of extra harmony together.
If you’ve got the hots for someone at work, you may discover that your feelings are mutual this week. In fact, you might even begin to date, thanks to a gorgeous alignment of Venus to Neptune on Thursday. This romance might even feel too good to be true, filling your heart with all sorts of bliss. Otherwise, health and wellness are directly related to romantic potential this week. If you’re visiting someone at the hospital, keep your eyes open. The cafeteria might not have the best food, but it just might hold your soul mate.
Love is in the air! Venus will enter your 5th House of True Love and Pleasure on Tuesday, and by Thursday you may feel as if you’ve found the perfect someone. If you’re already in a relationship, it’s likely that you and your mate will enjoy an extra special dose of harmony. Consider a mid-week romantic date night to help reignite the sparks between you. You may also find that an evening of entertainment reminds you how much you simply enjoy being together, no matter what is on the agenda.
You and your mate are likely to focus more on family matters this week — an emphasis that will certainly bring you closer. Perhaps a relative needs your help. If this is the case, the two of you will brainstorm happily on ways to be of service. You may also decide to embark on a home decorating project together, and if so you’ll enjoy every moment of it. Be careful not to overspend — you might have champagne tastes, but remember you’re on a beer budget.
If you’re single and looking for love, you may find it right in your own backyard this week. Venus will enter the area of your chart that rules your neighborhood and environment. You may discover that a sexy someone moves on your block or in your apartment building. Be sure to introduce yourself with an inviting housewarming gift! After Sunday, Mercury will turn direct in your sign, allowing you to say what you mean without stumbling over your words. Ah, at last!
Your sense of self-worth is about to move up a notch. Because you’ll feel more confident and self-assured, you’ll display qualities that will surely make you more attractive to a potential or current romantic partner. Don’t discount a relative’s offer to set you up with someone if you’re single. Even if it’s a blind date, give it a shot — you might fall head-over-heels in love! Also, after Sunday you will find it easier to let go of an anxiety about intimacy that you might have found troubling. Good for you!
With Venus moving into your sign on Tuesday, you’ll suddenly find yourself even more alluring to others. In fact, your personal magnetism may help you meet someone new. The best part is that you only need to be yourself to attract others. Your irresistible quotient will be based on your typically cautious and practical approach to love. Someone who knows you’re worth any wait will likely be drawn to you now. Expect a conversation with your lover or potential suitor on Thursday to go even better than you hope.
You might want more privacy when it comes to your love life. Perhaps you feel that you and your mate need to take time away from the hectic world and focus on just the two of you. Schedule a spiritual retreat or a few days at a spa together to help you reconnect. If you’re in a situation where you have feelings for someone who is unable or unwilling to reciprocate, you might feel a bit of anxiety about it now. Ask yourself why you’re attracted to someone who is unavailable. And don’t be afraid of the answer.
If you’ve grown fond of a friend in more than just a platonic way, there could be an interesting development this week. You might learn that your pal shares this romantic affinity and would like to explore the potential. Because this thought might initially make you both nervous, the two of you might feel safer to keep your budding relationship private while you’re in the initial stages of figuring it all out. One thing is certain: The best love affairs have a solid friendship. You’re already halfway there.
