A ratchety start with Mars crashing into Saturn and then
Uranus in the first few days will make for an unsettled and
impatient mood. The Cancer Sun until the 22 nd can be moody and
emotionally hyper-sensitive though really craves happy home
times. Luckily Venus in sociable Leo should add a sparkle of
sunshine and brighten spirits especially towards midmonth.
Pluto may bring a few relationship tensions or tugs of war
around the 17 th but being stubborn won’t help. Subtle
persuasion will work best.
A mix of fun and duty in the final days comes courtesy of
Venus in Virgo and the Leo Sun, so candles will be burned at
both ends. There’ll be a definite gear shift as the month ends
with four planets changing signs. Jupiter moving back into
Aquarius will be friendly and tolerant.
