A Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio close to Uranus will make for a
lively start to the month with a mood of anticipation and
excitement. There will be sudden surprises in the first ten
days so expecting the unexpected will be sensible. There may
also be differences of opinion or a sense of ambivalence,
being pulled in two directions. What the hearts wants won’t be
what common sense indicates is practical.
Venus in Cancer will add a sparkle of fun and harmony to
family and domestic matters with redecoration plans in full
swing for some.
The Astro-headline for the month apart from the early
eclipse is Jupiter moving into Taurus on the 16 th to stay till
next May bringing an indulgent and acquisitive mood. Taurus is
an earth sign so revels in pleasure and the five senses.
Whatever feeds the eyes, ears, sense of smell, taste and feel
will be attractive.
Jupiter will be boosted in a powerfully confident (and over
confident) square to Pluto on the 18 th which, for some,
suggests that rules don’t apply to them. And instantly runs
into Mars in Taurus, so the third week will be action-packed,
high-octane, perhaps troubled out in the world and a time to
take care in terms of precautions. Don’t go leaping into
reckless action or take risks.
The Gemini Sun after the 21 st will attempt to get a grip on
over-the-top reactions as it meets the restraining hand of
Saturn. So a start stop finish to the month.
