Sun and Saturn oppose each other from 8th -10th which could lead to deadlocks, further fuelled by Full Moon on 14th. The more you can be flexible these days: the better.
Mars in Libra goes direct on 20th after two and a half months of back-peddling. This has been a frustrating period that has caused us to review how we’ve been using our energy and asserting ourselves recently. Armed with better self-knowledge, we can now hopefully move forward in a more helpful and fairer way.
So what will this mean for us all?
Read the horoscope below for your Sun sign and for your Ascendant sign if you know it.
Aries: Venus is in your sign making you the zodiac’s favourite for most of the month. The clouds thicken a little mid-month though when Sun and Saturn oppose each other around 8th – 10th.

A Sun – Saturn opposition around 8th – 10th will remind you that there’s still further to go on the well-being front and that you may need the help of your unconscious to make real changes. Not easy to access alone, the help of a counsellor, therapist or healer could be really helpful.
On 14th Full Moon in the same areas raises even more emotion in connection to all of this but you are getting closer to the end of this tunnel (late December).
