The Scorpio Sun will seek the shade, plotting and planning in corners, being secretive and emotionally intense. But it’ll have its work cut out keeping everything under wraps since Venus in Sagittarius from the 1st will be throwing open the curtains, allowing the sunshine in and letting all the secrets out into the open. Socially it’ll be adventurous, even if there will be more serious financial matters to resolve.
Mars will top and tail the month with some aggravation. In a fraught square to Pluto on the 5th it will make decisions and agreements harder to reach. And then again on the 24th having moved into Scorpio it will light a fuse in an opposition to Uranus. There will be upheavals and disruptions with hasty over-reactions likely. Happily mid month looks calmer and more upbeat.
The Sun shifts into lively, outspoken Sagittarius on the22nd for four weeks which will lighten the mood. And Venus moves into Capricorn for a chic, sophisticated, socially ambitious feel.
