Emotionally intense, passionate and secretive Scorpio holds sway with the Sun in place till the 22nd, seductive Venus there from the 7th all month, plus lucky, expansive and feminine-friendly Jupiter also in Scorpio for months and months ahead. There will be a merging of souls as well as a money-magnet to bring cheer. Plus to be admitted jealousy and darker feelings. But determination which is Scorpio’s hallmark will win out. Not for nothing is Scorpio known as the miracle maker of the zodiac. Once a decision is made, heaven, earth and mountains will be moved to reach the goal. Mercury is in crusading, outspoken and overly-honest Sagittarius from the 5th as well.
Saturn in Sagittarius is trine Uranus in Aries on the 11th which will shed light on old problems, bring a better way ahead, combining the best of the old with the best of the new.
What to watch out for in the days before is the Mars square Pluto on the 19th which can bring a trapped, frustrating, aggravating or even fearful feeling. Being neither too submissive nor too dominating is the trick. And taking more care since it can be accident-prone or attract undesirables.
In the final ten days the enthusiastic Sagittarius Sun will turn minds towards adventure, travel, broadening horizons and far flung places. The mood will be fiery, colourful and more outgoing.
