Our shared planetary picture
Mercury goes direct this month on 5th. This helps to clear up recent misunderstanding and possibly bring things to light which have gone astray. The build up to Full Moon in Pisces is on the same day. And Mars jumps out of Leo and into Virgo on 5th too!
On a collective level, Mars directs its energy to tackle work, health, service to others and well-being issues. This applies doubly to Aries but every other sign has additional areas of life that Mars is ready to get to grips with (described in your horoscope below).
Mercury also moves into Virgo on 10th, followed by Venus and New Moon on 20th – the perfect day to start a new regime!
Jupiter, planet of growth, expansion and opportunity is opposite Uranus, planet of change, disruption and revolution from 16th – 30th which suggests our need for growth and our need for uncompromised freedom lie in opposite directions…
Pluto completes its five-month review on 28th and goes direct. This helps us all press forward with our newly-gained information. Again, in different areas of life for each sign.
So what will this mean for us all?
Read the horoscope for your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it.
Aries: Your ruling planet Mars leaps into action in a fresh part of your solar chart on 5th. And its new agenda is work, health, service to others and daily
routine. Your determination to get things done will be high. And if your health needs taking in hand, now is a good time to get started.
Mercury helps communications at work from 10th onwards. This is good for physical movement too, so if a new exercise routine would be helpful, the wind is behind you.
The Sun generates a creative approach towards work and daily routine until 22nd and Venus adds pleasure from 20th onwards. If you are preoccupied with other things early in the month (perhaps the nice Venusian flow in your romance, children and creativity zone), take the opportunity of New Moon on 20th to kick-start a new regime. What do you need to incorporate (or get rid of) in your daily routine for your own well-being?
Give and take in relationships is high-lighted from 16th – 30th when Jupiter in your partnerships zone is pushing for growth and Uranus in your sign wants uncompromised freedom. Finding a comfortable place in the push and pull of this axis is part of your challenge this month.
Pluto goes direct in your father, career and social status zone on 28th. Your five-month review is complete and you should now be clearer about how power should be used professionally or regarding father figures. You should also be better informed about what ambitions you truly want to pursue. And Pluto is now at hand to pursue them!
Taurus: Your ruling planet Venus is smoothing your mother and home zone until 20th. Home in every sense should be a source of pleasure, be that the building you live in, its emotional dynamics, your country, Mother Nature or our planet. Relationships with mother figures go well too. You will want to beautify your home and offer its pleasures to others, perhaps by entertaining.
A dilemma between romance and friendship could crop up at Full Moon on 5th – 6th. Or could it be conflicting demands between personal creativity and group achievement? Mars leaps into action in your romance, children and creativity zone also on 5th. Energy will be bouncing around here, joining the Sun which has been warming things up for two weeks beforehand.
Passion or conflict are two of the possible outcomes, perhaps both. New Moon on 20th marks the beginning of a new year here too. Make some resolutions to help bring about what you hope to find in your love life and creative life in the month and year ahead.
Pluto goes direct in your travel, philosophy, cultural and ethics zone on 28th. Having reviewed matters here over the last five months, you can now put your conclusions into action. Publishing and your online life come into this too. Which of these areas have you decided to transform?
Gemini: You will be communicating with charm this month as Venus softens your style and smile until 20th. Relationships go well too with siblings and neighbours and short journeys should be pleasurable.
Meanwhile your ruling planet Mercury goes direct on 5th and moves into your 4th House of mother and home on 10th. Mars jumps in too on 5th to join the Sun. Home in its broadest sense is the focus this month. Your determination to forge ahead with domestic projects will be strong, as will your active concern for mother figures in your life and possibly your urge to nurture others. You will also be keen to prioritise your own emotional needs and personal development.
Venus joins these planets too on 20th, adding pleasure to the mix. And New Moon falls in your mother and home zone, also on 20th. This is the beginning of your domestic new year. Make resolutions towards a home that will meet your emotional needs in the month and year ahead.
You may feel a bit restricted around 24th – 26th when Mercury squares Saturn but on 28th Pluto goes direct in your joint funds, intimacy and sharing zone. One or more of these areas has been under review since late April and now you should know how to move forward. Move forward!
Cancer: Your finances continue to look good until 20th and recent mix-ups get sorted out as Mercury goes direct on 5th. Mars changes signs on the same day, ready to tackle communications, physical movement and dealings with neighbours and siblings.
Your mental energy will be high and if you have been thinking about learning a new language, undertaking other studies or starting a writing project, your determination now should carry you through. Mercury, the Sun and Venus add their energies too as the month unfolds. And New Moon on 20th marks a fresh start in some way. Short journeys should be enjoyable too.
From 16th – 30th Jupiter which is pushing for growth in your mother and home zone is opposite Uranus which is pushing for change and freedom in your father, career and social status zone. Finding a comfortable compromise between these two opposing needs is part of your challenge during the second half of this month.
From 22nd the Sun tilts the balance towards expressing yourself more fully in the home or with mother figures. Other planets follow suit next month. Meanwhile Pluto goes direct in your partnerships zone on 28th. Your review of relationships and partnerships is now complete and you can start to make the necessary changes you have identified.
Leo: Venus is still boosting your charm rating and the waves continue to part to let you through until 20th. Your finances should then start to look rosier as Venus glides into your 2nd House of money, possessions, security and values. Things may look a little rockier though from 3rd – 5th and 28th – 30th when joint or shared finances or the unrealistic expectations of others (or your own) create confusion.
When Mars jumps into your finance zone from 5th, your finances become a big focus. You will find the energy and determination to increase your sense of security. This may not necessarily be about money. Your values, self-esteem and creativity can provide a sense of security too. Be open to all of these possibilities. New Moon on 20th also falls here and marks the beginning of your new financial year – a good day to make a new budget!
Your ruling planet the Sun squares Saturn from 12th – 14th which may feel restrictive but Venus, Saturn and Uranus form a flow of creative energy at the same time. This is good for self-expression, romance, children, creativity, travel, studies and publishing.
Your work, health, service to others and daily routine change gear on 28th when Pluto goes direct. One or more of these areas has been under review since late April and the way is now clear for you to put your conclusions into action!
Virgo: The Sun ball remains in your court this month until 22nd, radiating warmth, optimism and freer self-expression. On 5th Mars leaps into your sign too adding extra dynamism and determination to your creative self-expression. You may find yourself being more assertive and this is fine. Your ruling planet Mercury also goes direct on 5th and you may feel the benefit of the double gear change that day.
Full Moon early on 6th (with the build up on 5th) falls in your relationships and partnerships zone, creating an emotional high tide. New Moon in Virgo follows on 20th, marking the start of your emotional New Year. Make resolutions that will help to generate what you hope to find in your emotional life in the year ahead.
Venus is in your sign from 20th making you darling of the zodiac for the rest of the month. Your charms will be at their highest and you will attract others to you. (Although Neptune’s involvement from 28th – 30th is less easy to handle, raising questions about pleasure versus ideals).
Pluto goes direct on 28th in your romance, children and creativity zone. One or more of these areas has been under review since late April and you can now bring transformation to where it is needed.
All in all, the world is looking fresh and new. Many Happy Solar and Lunar Returns!
Libra: Energy levels may have been low recently but that is about to change. The month before our birthday we are often at low ebb as the Sun has been away from us for the longest time. The good news is that the Sun is bringing fresh energy and a sense of renewal to you from 22nd!
Your birthday whether this month or next is your personal new year and a more meaningful time than January 1st to make resolutions for the year ahead. It is also the perfect time to explore your planets for the year ahead with a good astrologer.

Jupiter in your sign opposes Uranus from 16th – 30th and your need for personal growth runs counter to your need for freedom and excitement in partnerships (or your partner’s need for them).

Your personal development journey will be ready to recommence too. Fasten your seat belt!
Scorpio: Venus spends the first three weeks of the month in your father, career and social status zone. Ambitions go well and if you need support from people in authority, just ask (from 6th – 20th).

Full Moon early morning on 6th (with the build-up on 5th) could highlight a clash between romance and friendship. Or could it be conflicting demands between personal creativity and group achievement?

New Moon on 20th falls in this area of your chart too and marks a fresh start. Go with it!
Your ruling planet Pluto goes direct in your communications zone on 28th. A review has been taking place since late April on how you think and how you express (or do not express) yourself. This may have brought up difficult things to look at. Luckily, Scorpion resilience and self-honesty always carry you through difficult waters.
From 28th you can start applying your conclusions about what in your thinking or communications now needs transformation. And be sure to remember, it is not a weakness getting or asking for help from others. We are all human.

Your determination to make headway will be strong and you will find energy to give to one or more of these areas and get energised by them too.
Meanwhile your joint finance zone looks good until 20th and you may benefit from ‘the money of others’. This is good for intimacy and sharing too. The only exception to these positives may be from 28th – 30th when Venus opposes Neptune and unrealistic expectations or a lack of clarity may trip things up.
