The Caterpillar Apocalypse resulted in tremendous weed growth on the forest floor.

Hoo boy, after weeks of nothing there all sorts of things are happening, and most of them involve MERCURY RETROGRADE. This week begins as the last one ended, with MERCURY and Venus staring each other down. Expect chaos in your love life. If you don’t think you have a love life, this week is likely to rudely demonstrate what you’ve been using as a substitute, it’s that chaotic. But this week , Jupiter Retrograde also gets involved with this construction, indicating that the chaos may contain or is the result of *ahem* role reversal. You have been warned. On Tuesday, the moon moves into opposition with one of the legs of this construction, indicating that a woman is getting pretty sick of whatever it is you’ve been doing for the past few days, or alternatively that your love life is disrupted by a maritime incident. Some people also read this as potentially involving a freshwater craft, but since the Moon is in Cancer that day and Saturn Retrograde is unopposed in Aquarius, it really does mean saltwater. As the moon moves out of that alignment, it falls into one with the aforementioned Saturn Retrograde for just a few minutes. That guarantees two things: the time of the incident and also that the boat will be something large. Maybe a cruise liner? Although I guess container ship crews need loving too. Venus skedaddles before the celestial trainwreck that’s happening on Friday. On that day let’s see… Sun-MERCURY RETROGRADE-Earth-Jupiter Retrograde is our main axis, with freaking Mars being en tierce, or if you’re a charlatan you could claim that’s an additional alignment with Uranus Retrograde (which is NOT a thing, no matter how many pop-astrologists tell you it is). In any case, this looks like Charlie Three is going to have a terrible horrible no good very bad day then. Saturday’s tabloids are going to be lit.

So Virgo… bad news. Most of the week is going to be great. But Friday is not. On that day, not only is the Sun leaving you for more scaley pastures, but MERCURY RETROGRADE sticks its butt into your house and shits all over everything. Saturday will be better.
