July

A Solar and a Lunar Eclipse will make this a more significant than usual month, with heightened anticipation and a sense of challenges which need to be risen to over coming months.

The Cancer Solar Eclipse, a powerful New Moon on the 2nd, sets a theme for the next six months of one particular arena in individual’s lives which needs addressed and changes put in place. The New Moon is a time of new beginnings, of sowing the seeds of what should grow in the time ahead. A complicating factor is that Saturn and Pluto are in the opposite sign of Capricorn which the Cancer Sun will meet in the second week. This will bring delays, and restrictive circumstances which need to be overcome.

Then the Lunar Eclipse, a powerful Full Moon on the 16th in Capricorn, hints at a need for balance, for example between independence and interdependence, between focussing on detail and thinking big, between home and career ambitions, between friends and loved ones, between service to self and service to others. This is another theme which will run for the six few months, in an area of life determined by your birth chart.

From July 1st as well Mars moves into flamboyant, entertaining and opinionated Leo meeting with a fiery and volatile square to Uranus on the 11th, which will tend to lead to impulse decisions and reckless actions or reactions.

Not a quiet month. Venus is also in home-loving and self-protective Cancer from the 3rd until the 28th. Mercury in Leo goes retrograde in Leo on the 7th for just over three weeks, reversing into Cancer on the 19th – this will bring the usual communication hitches and glitches.

An enthusiastic Mars Jupiter on the 25th is followed by a surprising Sun Uranus on the 29th so it’ll continue to be stay-alert time.

June

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.

May

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.

April

An upfront, assertive Aries Sun for three weeks – first sign of the zodiac – should be go-ahead and impulsive. But there’ll be anchors dragging up to mid month with both Saturn and then Pluto in square.  So it’ll be stop start; with a smile of relief from the 14th when easier times come round courtesy of Jupiter turned direct in aspect to the Sun.

Venus and Mercury will quietly amble through sensitive Pisces, dreaming wonderful dreams and avoiding too much reality until into the third week, when they too shift into zippy Aries. Mercury here is outspoken and direct; Venus will be fiery, passionate though with a short attention span.

In the final days the Sun moves into steady, earthy Taurus though a lively conjunction with rebellious and inventive Uranus on the 22nd may bring a surprise or two.

March 2019

A dreamy, vague, drifting and daydreaming Pisces Sun will amble along until the 20th joining hands with Neptune its ruler on the 6th. Creative, spiritual but not very practical is how it will feel.  Resolutely down to earth Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn will attempt to ground decisions and actions between the 9th and 13th but it’ll be a struggle.

The major astro-news is Uranus moving into Taurus on the 6th for seven years ahead. It moved in for a brief foray last year but now it’s there for an extended run. Uranus is about innovation, upsetting the status-quo; while Taurus rules the material world, money and nature. So  radical changes in finances and in farming are likely.

Mars is in Taurus as well all month in a dreary trine to Saturn midmonth and an ultra-determined trine to Pluto a week later. So it’ll be a balancing act between the get-it-together Earth energy and the evasive Water.

In the final days the Sun zips into Aries, first sign of the zodiac, fiery, impulsive, go-ahead and upfront so it’ll be all-systems go. With Mars in communicative Gemini from the 31st lifting and lightening the mood as well.
