The ultra-determined, secretive, emotionally intense Scorpio Sun will plough ahead with dreams intact and in a problem-solving mood for three weeks. It doesn’t play too well with Mars in contrary and airy Aquarius but there won’t be too many clashes. Mars will be alternately passionately enthusiastic and freedom-seeking till mid month.
The major astro-news is expansive, lucky Jupiter moving into its own sign of Sagittarius from the 8th. Jupiter stays a year per sign and hasn’t been here for 12 years, so there will be a definite gear shift into a more adventurous phase with opinions being handed out freely and frankly, and a risk of self-righteousness. But travel will be well-starred as well.
Mars moves down a gear into Pisces from mid month till January 1st so will be less argumentative, more creative, favouring dance and yoga, and being more helpful. Though an over confident push on the 20th may not be too realistic.
Mid month also Venus goes direct in Libra for a sunnier, sociable phase ahead; and Mercury goes retrograde for three weeks accompanied by the usual communication hitches and glitches.
The Sun in the final weeks joins Jupiter in Sagittarius for an upbeat finish to the month with high hopes, general good feelings though promises may be made which can’t be delivered since Fire energy isn’t always practical.
