The Bigger Picture
Your ruler the Sun is turning your attention outwards this month, towards the bigger picture of life. Up until the 19th, the Sun is in your fellow fire sign Aries, along with Venus, the planet of relating, until the 14th and Mercury, the planet of communication, until the 19th.
Aries rules travel and study in your horoscope, future horizons. You may feel the sap rising and be ready for a new adventure. This fizzing planetary energy peaks on the 12th, the day of the New Moon in Aries.
Yet, things aren’t straightforward now. For some of you, this month may require a compromise especially if you’re busy at work. A trip away or a study course could be postponed or even cancelled early in the month.
This is when the inner planets in Aries run into Pluto in Capricorn and your work and health sector on the 12th, 16th & 17th.
You might be disappointed if you’ve put in for holiday leave or you have to cover for someone else. See if you can find a way around any problems and try not to fall into impossibility.
The focus on next steps intensifies as the month continues as the Sun, your ruler, enters Taurus and your career and vocation sector on the 19th. Communication planet, Mercury, joins the Sun in Taurus on the 19th and the planet of relating Venus leads the way on the 14th.
Look to your colleagues, socialise and focus on team work during the second half of the month. Both Mercury and Venus are social-oriented.
This is about creating strong bonds with other people, learning to manage and delegate well. This could be what helps you find a way forwards, whether you’re low in energy or have too much on your plate.
The Uranus Factor
There is another factor influencing your career and vocation which is the planet Uranus. This month, Uranus is active from the 23rd to the 30th, when it teams up with Venus, Mercury and the Sun. Uranus is an innovative and new influence, as it’s the planet associated with all things modern and technological.
When it falls in your career sector, you may be setting off on a new path or want to embrace more space and freedom in your career. It can be a good time to go freelance or work differently in some way.
Sometimes, you find you can’t do things the way you always have done in the past. Life steps in to move you on or shows you where change is required.
This planetary influence culminates at the Full Moon on the 27th. This is an important Full Moon for you because it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope.
This Full Moon may bring an award or a completion of a deadline or project. There could be a surprise involved, however, as the Full Moon takes place in the midst of the ‘surprise’ Uranus activity.
Uranus is one of your partner planets, so this could suggest exciting events for your other half or meeting someone unexpectedly via your work. It might mean that your personal life gets mixed up in your future goals with a clash of interests.
The Full Moon in Scorpio highlights home and family affairs too. The thrust of this month’s astrology is taking you out into the world.
Yet, you still have some responsibilities or duties which require your time and attention. These need to be factored in, especially if your schedule is busy, erratic or you’re starting a new business or project.
Mars On The Move
Friends are in the mix this month thanks to Mars in Gemini until the 23rd. In fact, some friends could be pushy and may demand too much of you. Alternatively, you might find that you have a drive for networking and using your connections to boost your prospects.
Mars starts to slow you down a little after the 23rd when it enters Cancer and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This indicates a need for retreat or more privacy in your life. Perhaps, too much gossip and information requires a reset.
It’s certainly a lively month on the whole with a lot of different elements to juggle. Pace yourself and prioritise your career & your future path. This is where you can make the biggest strides in the month ahead.
