An earthy, indulgent steady-as-you-go Taurus Sun for three weeks will be joined by Mercury from the 6th and Venus from the 15th so it could be a sensual and sensuous feast. Taurus in addition to being pampered apricates security, both emotional and financial, so will be aiming to anchor everything down to suit their needs.
Mars will be dancing to a different tune in scattered, chatty and fast-thinking Gemini as it zips around like a firefly, at times over-estimating the amount of luck it needs to fulfil ambitions. Towards mid month the steadying hand of Saturn and Pluto will balance out any excess zeal. Then Mars moves into Cancer for a few weeks ahead for an excitable mood. Cancer is water and Mars fire and fire makes water boil so it will be volatile. Luckily Venus at the same time moves into calming Taurus.
Then in the final days the Gemini Sun picks up for a light hearted mood, with plenty of variety and little chance for boredom.
