The planetary power began to shift to the Eastern sector of your chart – the sector of self – in April, and it has been growing steadily stronger over the weeks. You are now in a period of personal independence (and this will get even stronger next month). Other people are always important, and we never forget the golden rule, but your way is the best way these days. Please number one and the world will be pleased. You have within yourself all that you need for happiness. So, now is the time to make those changes in your life that need to be made. (The next two months are also good to do this.) Exercise your personal initiative. Make things happen. If others don’t go along, bless them, and go your way.
There will be a solar eclipse on the 10th that occurs in your 11th house. Every Solar Eclipse affects you strongly – more so than for others – as the Sun rules your Horoscope. So, this eclipse is likely to bring life-changing kinds of dramas in the lives of friends. Friendships get tested. Computers, high-tech equipment and software can behave erratically: often repairs or replacement are necessary. Make sure your files are backed up and that your anti-hacking and anti-virus software is up to date. You, a parent or parent figure and the beloved have to make financial course corrections. Children or children figures have social dramas; if they are of age and in a marriage or romantic relationship, it gets tested. The spouse, partner or current love can experience a job change or dramas at the workplace. If he or she employs others there can be degrees of staff turnover. He or she will make important changes to the health regime in the coming months. Siblings or sibling figures can also have social dramas and experience issues with technical equipment. If they are at college, there could be changes in their educational plans. There are disruptions in their place of worship.
Personal independence is not only increased because of the overall planetary power, but also by Mars’ move into your sign on the 12th. A guru figure or mentor type seems very devoted to you. The urge to travel is very strong. You are better at athletics and exercise than usual. You have more courage and you don’t back down from confrontation. You get things done quickly. However, as regular readers know, Mars can make you impatient and overly combative. There can be unnecessary conflicts and perhaps accidents. So be more mindful on the physical plane.
Planetary retrograde activity increased last month and increases further in the month ahead. We are far from the maximum level for the year – but 40 per cent of the planets going backwards is a substantial percentage. Things are slowing down in the world and in your life. More patience is necessary.
