A lot of cosmic changes are happening this month. The chess pieces of the Cosmos are being re-arranged. Retrograde activity increases this month. We begin the month with only 10 per cent of the planets retrograde but we end it with 30 per cent of them moving backwards. Life doesn’t stop – it never does – but it slows down a bit. Jupiter’s major move into Pisces on the 14th will improve health and energy. It is a wonderful transit for students at college level (or those applying to colleges): best-case scenarios are happening. Legal issues (if you’re involved in such things) are also favourable now. And, finally there is a lunar eclipse on the 26th.
Every lunar eclipse has a strong effect on you as the Moon, the eclipsed planet, rules your Horoscope. So, there is a need to redefine yourself, to upgrade your self-concept and image of yourself. This is basically a healthy thing. You get to do this twice a year. Sometimes detoxes of the body happen – especially if you haven’t been careful in dietary matters. This eclipse occurs in your 6th house and affects the ruler of the 6th house, Jupiter. Thus, there can be job changes, either with your present company or with a new one. There are disturbances at the workplace. If you employ others there can be high staff turnover and dramas in the lives of employees. In the coming months there will be dramatic changes to your health regime. Children and children figures in your life are forced to make important financial changes. Parents and parent figures should drive more defensively.
Love is more complicated this month. First, your love planet Saturn starts to retrograde on the 23rd. Additionally, he receives stressful aspects until the 21st. You have to work harder on your current relationship. Singles are having challenges in romance. Love improves somewhat after the 21st, but the love planet is going backwards, so be patient in love. Don’t take setbacks too seriously. Avoid making important love decisions for the next few months. Use the retrograde period to gain clarity in love – to define what you want – to see what improvements can be made. Then, when Saturn starts moving forward again, you can put your plans into action.
Finances are status quo this month. This is most likely a good thing. You are content with things as they are and have no need to pay too much attention here.
Mars will be in your sign all month. Review our discussion of this last month.
There can be career-related travel on the 21st and 22nd.
