There are some new beginnings coming in your love life this month, and a chance to finalise something related to your career or business. But first an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus on the 2nd sees some surprises coming related to a love interest, your children or a creative project. This will be associated with your friendships and could see some decisions needing to be made about how you balance your priorities. A friend could be instrumental in introducing you to someone you end up dating. The 5th house also rules creativity, so there may be something you are collaborating on with a friend or group, which you need to rework or look for a new way forward.
Venus retrogrades in Aries from the 4th in your 5th house. Over the coming month it will be imperative that you listen to your heart in matters related to love or your children, and trust what your instincts are telling you. If you are inclined to always ask for advice and input from others before making a decision about someone, it’s time to trust your own judgment and make decisions without input from a cast of thousands. Love is also more personal for you with Venus retrograde and you will enjoy privacy and cosines when getting to know a lover.
Mars moves into Taurus on the 9th in your 6th house. All those daily tasks you’ve let slide get your attention and a good dose of motivation to ensure they get done. Your fitness, healthy eating and getting on top of your to do list should be your focus. Mars will give you the energy to get it all done and tie up any loose ends.
A Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th is in your 10th house of career and business. Something is being finalized now, or coming to an end. The Sun in Pisces, your 4th house of family and Pluto in Capricorn your 2nd house of money support this moon. Family could have you questioning what the right course of action is, or if you are drawing a line under something career related at the right time. You may be deliberating what family have to say, or questioning if it’s time to wrap up family involvement in a business or career venture. Money though is good for you today, and you may finally be able to realize a financial benefit from something career or business related, or is starting to see an uptick in income.
One to watch today is the clash between the moon and Saturn in your 6th house. Whatever you have left undone today, can come back and bite you. Some detail has been missed, or you’ve taken on too much and something that is routine or mundane to you, ends up becoming a bigger headache than you would like or expect. If you’ve neglected tasks, at least one causes you some problems at this full moon around a career or business matter.
Mercury enters Aries on the 13th in your 5th house. You can be the flirting champion with Mercury here and attract all sorts of new prospects with witty banter and clever play on words. This is also a great time to update information on dating sites, or go out on that date and wow them with your conversation skills. For the coupled up, it’s much easier to relate to your partner, and it’s also easier to get along with children if you have them. The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, in your 5th house. This is the annual review of all matters related to your love life, romance, children and creativity. Look at how far you’ve come in these areas in the last year and celebrate your achievements It’s also time to think about the aspects of these areas of your life that you aren’t happy with and set some goals for the year ahead.
A New Moon in Aries on the 27th in your 5th house is the time to get started to your goals. This moon teams up with Venus and the Sun, all in your 5th house, so you have the support you need to start all over again or begin the next chapter. Again, we see Saturn cause some issues for you in your 6th house at this New Moon. So think about how your daily life, routines, tasks and how you go about them are impacting on your love life, your children or your creative projects. Something needs to change in order to make these areas of your life more positive. Perhaps you are devoting too much time to a task that you don’t really need to do, or a lack of organization is holding you back in one of these areas.
Jupiter and Pluto clash on the 30th and this one will cause you some issues around your friendships and money. There needs to be more balance in a friendship around money and this could be because one of your is giving too much, or not giving enough. Be wary of loaning money to friends today. Mercury moves into Taurus on the 31st, your 6th house and already it is feeling the effects of the upcoming retrograde from April 9th. Don’t get involved in signing up for anything major now. Even routine things in your day to day life need to be held over where they can be if they relate to communication, or signing up for something that you may need to think twice about down the track.
Mars and Venus enter Aries and your 5th house from late January, early February and get your annual relationship review underway. Make the effort with your partner, or to meet new people in this early part of the year. From early March, Venus will retrograde in Aries and that’s going to make love, children and creativity more work for you until at least early April. A new moon in Aries at the end of March is very positive for your romantic life, but you could find that you need to make more time for it, or that other things keep getting in the way. Make the time for love and don’t let yourself get caught up making excuses to put it off.
Mercury will retrograde in Aries from mid April, making communication with your partner, or when meeting people, chaotic. There are mixed signals, and either someone else, or you could be getting the wrong idea about someone’s intentions. Venus enters Aries again after a period in Pisces, from April 28th. This time it is direct, providing lots of opportunities for romance and fun through until early June. Watch for any issue at the end of April between your family and a romantic partner. They may not like who you are with, or they could be interfering in your choices. Mercury turns direct in your 5th house in early May, helping smooth over any issues with getting your message across in romance.
Mid May provides you with a chance to try again with a family and romance matter. If your family weren’t happy earlier, perhaps its time to try again and have another meet up. Did they not give your partner a fair chance? Or have circumstances changed so much that they may be more positive this time? Uranus retrogrades in Aries from early August until early 2018. This can smooth over some of the bumps that have been cropping up with a partner or your children. There aren’t as many surprises, or the ones that do come up are less likely to throw you into a tailspin. A Full moon in Aries in early October is a lovely period for romance and could see you make a fresh commitment to your partner, or resolve to put more effort into meeting new people. But the biggest news for you this year comes mid December when Saturn finally leaves your sign after a three year stay. It’s time to take a breather and realise you’ve come through the other side of what’s been a roller coaster of emotions and tough lessons. Saturn will be moving into Capricorn and your 2nd house of money now, so all the lessons will be focused on your finances. You still have a way to go in that respect, but none of the things that crop up there will be as big or life changing as what’s happened while Saturn has been in your sign. You have a better sense of who you are, what is important, the things you are willing to accept and those that you simply won’t. It’s also easier to let the little things slide right of you and to be pragmatic when problems do come your way. The pessimism and feeling of being an old soul when Saturn is in your sign is lifting, and while you are very much changed, in another way, you get to go back to being your old, light hearted, fun loving self.
This year it can become apparent that you have taken on far more than you should or you need to get better organised to meet your professional obligations. There is also a big temptation for you to take on extra study later in the year and you will need to be realistic about how much that is going to stretch your mental and emotional resources. A Full moon in Virgo in early March falls in your 10th house and this is the first sign that you have too much on your plate, or need to manage your time better. Money and family are positive for you at this full moon, it’s the daily grind that’s likely to get on top of you. From early April Saturn will retrograde in your 6th house. Saturn will be retrograde until mid August, but in April it’s your daily tasks that need your focus. If you procrastinate on important tasks it becomes obvious to you that you need to put them first. It’s also an area of your chart where you need to make the effort with health including diet and fitness. Mid July Mercury is in Virgo and your 10th house and this is when you should move on new chances that come up for you professionally. But you need to be very quick because by the end of the month the shadow of Mercury retrograde is confusing things and causing delays. Mercury will retrograde in your 10th house from August 12th, so this is not the time to change jobs, start new projects or make big professional commitments. If you start something now, expect to have to go over it again, or completely redo it down the track. The Sun enters Virgo from mid August and straight after we see Saturn turn direct in your 2nd house of money. Professionally this could mean you are moving forward and certainly with Mars entering your 10th house from early September, you have the motivation and energy you need to try and up your income or find new sources. Soon after Mercury enters Virgo, followed by Venus and then a New moon in Virgo and your 10th house in mid September. While professionally these are excellent stars for starting something new, or changing the way you are doing things. There is self doubt on your part about whether you are capable. Try to remain positive and think the best of yourself and have confidence in your abilities.
In early November Mercury enters your sign, and mid month the Sun joins it. Then in early December Venus comes along, but it’s in your 9th house so you may be thinking at this point about studying, travelling or be working with people who are overseas, or foreign to your home country. Mercury retrogrades in your sign from early December so get things done in November before the slow down gets underway. You have a new moon in Sagittarius and your 9th house, December 18th but Mercury is still retrograde. Any travel is beset by delays, or negotiations with international clients or colleagues don’t go to plan. Make your plans at this new moon but don’t commit to anything until the new year. This is also the month when Saturn finally leaves your sign and perhaps that’s why you are looking at taking a break and enjoying some overseas travel. Book your tickets from January 2018 and take a break.
Finances are just not going to factor highly in your year, and when they do there is a lot of uncertainty, indecision or delay. Pluto retrogrades in your 2nd house from April 20th and you can find it hard to make a concrete plan or to agree to anything others are asking for you. There isn’t much inclination on your part to put your hand in your pocket and make any big financial commitments. Perhaps you already have too many and there is no more room to move in this aspect of your life. Or the prevailing financial situation in the wider world has you thinking conservatively and feeling far more cautious than you would usually. There can be pressure from a spouse to spend more freely, or conversely to tighten your belt and not indulge in any luxuries. For singles, you may find it hard to reconcile how wonderful a person is for you, if they have barely a cent to their name. The Full Moon in Capricorn in early July brings much of this to a head as we see plenty of positive planets around the stability of money if you are conservative and don’t speculate. However Uranus joins in and brings surprise and unexpected news thanks to a lover, your spouse or possibly related to one of your children. An expense around one of these matters could be much higher than you anticipated. There is also a possibility that you decide to sell off an asset to deal with a matter around your romantic partner, or your children. If you do decide to sell an asset now you should be very pleased with how you’ve done. There are two major aspects in Capricorn on this day, so you may decide to sell real estate, or something materially substantial and get a pleasing result. Perhaps you get a valuation and find out that your home is worth more than you expected or someone else could step in now and help you with finances. Think friends, or associates, rather than family as your 11th house is positively aspected to this moon so these people could be the source of new money for you. The only other major financial aspect for you this year is when Saturn turns direct mid August. This could bring one last blast to your finances where you really need to pick up your game. Have you let your budget slide, wracked up debt on a credit card, or just let an opportunity pass you by when you tossed it over in your mind for too long? Whatever you learn now can only help you into the future when it comes to money.
