The pace of life will pick up this month. Little by little retrograde activity is reduced. Until the 6th, 60 per cent of the planets will be retrograde, but by the end of the month only 20 per cent will be travelling backwards. Things are opening up for you and in the world.
The power this month remains in your 3rd house, at least until the 22nd. So, like last month, this is a period for expanding your learning. It is excellent for students not yet at college. And even if you’re not ‘officially’ a student, you will behave like one. It will be a great period for attending lectures and seminars on subjects that interest you. It is also good for teaching others what you know.
Mercury, your financial planet, spends the month in your 3rd house, which is very good for mercurial activities – sales, marketing, advertising, PR, trading, buying and selling. (Of course, best to wait to make important trades or sales until Mercury goes forward on the 18th.) There are nice paydays happening this month in spite of the retrograde. Mercury makes nice aspects to Jupiter on the 2nd and 3rd (the results can happen with a delayed reaction). On the 8th and 9th the Sun travels with Mercury – a good financial period (again, it can happen with delays). On the 14th and 15th the Sun makes nice aspects with Jupiter too. These good things can come with complications, but they will come.
Your 4th house of home and family gains in power from the 22nd onwards. The focus is now on the family. Career is still important but for now shift some attention to the home, family and your emotional wellness. Many of you will be going back and forth like a seesaw between the demands of the career and the demands of the family. There is a balance to these things, and you will find it.
Love is more complicated this month – especially after the 23rd. You and the beloved need to work harder on your relationship. You seem distant – perhaps not physically, but psychologically. If you can bridge the differences, love can work out well.
Venus goes ‘out of bounds’ this month, from the 11th to the end of the month. Thus, in career and intellectual matters (the kind of reading that appeals to you) you are outside your normal sphere. The demands of the career can pull you out of your normal zone. Perhaps this is the situation with bosses, elders, parents and parent figures too.
