The chatty, scattered, multi-tasking Gemini Sun takes pride of place for three weeks so conversation won’t be in short supply though maintaining focus and concentration may be tricky. A marginally over confident mood in week two may prove disappointing. Being realistic will help.

Mercury moves into emotionally sensitive Cancer on the 4th which is good for creative imagination and intuiting unspoken needs but may also be overly defensive when it comes to criticism.

Venus flits into social butterfly Gemini on the 9th joining the Sun for a light hearted few weeks of party fun.

What will cause some irritation and aggravation is Mars continuing to cause ripples in Cancer all month, with a few tense moments around and just after mid month as it squares Saturn and opposes Pluto. There will be a risk of accidents or confrontations, so care and self-control will be needed.

In the final ten days the Cancer Sun takes up the reins for a home and family-loving few weeks, which isn’t to say ambitions won’t be furthered and new projects got under way but matters of the heart and emotional security will take equal place.
