Our shared planetary picture
We have a dazzling start to the month as Venus and Uranus join forces from 1st – 3rd in Aries. This blows our cobwebs away in an unexpected flash and acts of daring may beckon. Many
Sudden attractions to people, unusual recreational activities or an urge to completely change your routine may surprise you. Although this may all pass as quickly as it started, enjoy the moment for what it is worth. And recognise that this is showing you your need for variety and excitement!
Mars leaps forward on 4th, leaving Gemini for Cancer, to be joined on 21st, (the Summer Solstice) by the Sun and Mercury. This makes for a ball of assertive energy that wants to take action – in different areas of life for each sign. New Moon on 24th also falls here, marking a new year in these same areas of life.
Venus heads for home in Taurus from 6th, smoothing the way, making security look more attractive and heightening our senses.
On 9th Jupiter goes direct in Libra, ending a four-month review of where true growth and expansion lie. Hopefully better informed, we can now move ahead with real content, not just bluster. Full Moon in Sag falls on the same afternoon (14.11 BST).
Neptune changes direction on 16th and heads retrograde, taking us all back to review our ideals and how near or far our lives are from them. It will take until late-November to get the full picture.
So what will this mean for us all?
