Heavenly Headlines


The tactful, relationship-oriented Libra Sun is in place for three weeks. Balance is what will be the ideal but there could be wobbles from one extreme to the opposite in the search to achieve it. Venus will add a dash of charm and niceness to the mood. Apart from a challenging square to Pluto on the 28th little will ruffle the calm progress of the Sun.

  Mars can be argumentative in Gemini but its’ cutting edge will be dulled by Neptune towards mid month so there should not be major squabbles.

  Mercury goes direct on the 2nd getting rid of communication glitches and delays and skips into Libra on the 10th for reasoned discussions until late month.

  The Astro-news headline will be the Solar Eclipse in early Scorpio on the 25th two days after the Sun and Venus move into the intense and determined sign. This Eclipse is in a Saros series associated with high energy and the urge to take control. Jupiter then moves back into Pisces on the 28th to stay for a brief few weeks till mid December. Generally charitable and sympathetic it may help to soften the mood.
