The month starts out with the Moon in Aries and the beginnings of mutable Grand Cross of energy between the Sun and Venus in Gemini opposing Saturn Rx in Sag squaring Jupiter in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces. It’s kind of a stalemate of energy that predominates for the first week of the month before Venus and the Sun move on to later degrees of Gemini.
We will have the T-square in action between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, who goes retrograde on the 13th over the next 3 months. People with planets in the middle degrees of the mutable signs will feel the pressure of this combination which creates a condition of not feeling at all certain about which direction to go.
This should also bring up some interesting public deceptions and pop some illusions about what’s really going on in our lives and the world in general. Get ready for some fascinating revelations throughout the month but particularly around the time of the full Moon on the Solstice day of 6/20.
Mercury moves from Taurus into Gemini on the 14th where he shines with his intellect, quick understanding and solid communication. However, don’t talk yourself into committing to something too soon. Mars finishes his retrograde cycle on the 29th, going direct at 23 degrees of Scorpio. This will bring an increase in activity for everyone with forward motion and plans gaining strength and momentum. Jupiter gets closer to the north node at month’s end bringing in some hope and positive vibes for us to aspire to. Uranus is still moving forward at 23-24 degrees of Aries and Pluto moves back to the 16th degree of Capricorn.
March 21-April 20
Your ruling planet, Mars, is still retrograde now in the sign of Scorpio until June 29. Pay attention to people or circumstances related to what happened in July/August of 2015 as something has to be cleared up. It may feel like you are treading water right now but that’s OK. It’s all happening beneath the surface for you right now. Your best days are the 1st, 27th and 28th.
April 21-May 20
Partnerships and money are getting pressure from this Mars and Saturn retrograde cycle. Get comfortable with feeling frustrated as that’s just the nature of the cosmic vibe for you this month. You will have extra expenses this month, so try not to overindulge yourself as some of this will be unexpected. In spite of the financial pressure, you will have some exciting creative urges and visions for future creations. Make sure you write them down or sketch them for fleshing out for the future. Best days for you are the 2nd, 3rd, and the 30th.
May 21-June 21
You are getting a nice cosmic boost from Venus and the Sun traveling through your sign, to be joined by Mercury on the 13th. I hope you are taking advantage of the upbeat and social vibes around you and expanding your social connections. If you are looking to improve your appearance, this is a good month to do so. The big drawback right now is the mutable T-square hitting you on 3 fronts for 3 more months. You are challenged to keep your commitments aligned in integrity and walk your talk! Power days this month are the New moon on the 4th and the 5th.
June 22-July 22
Health issues are taking up some of your ever present worry right now as you strive to get ahead of an ongoing health situation. Saturn in your 6th house is the driver for this so have a plan and stick to it as Saturn will be in this house for another 18 months. Not fun, but if you look at as a call for disciplined behavior, it is supportive. Jupiter in your solar 3rd house beckons connections with siblings and your neighbors. Belief systems need an overhaul with Neptune going Rx in your 9th so if you find your thoughts changing, that’s the impetus for it. Your lucky days are the 6th and 7th.
July 23-Aug 22
Money and values are the drivers for your concern this month as well as your relationships with friends and children. Mars is Rx in your 4th house of home, family and ancestors possibly clearing the way for a reunion or gathering of the clan for some reason. Make a plan to stay in touch or take a trip to see them. There could also be a need to get some work done on the house or plan to remodel something in your home. Start after the 29th for the best results. Your power days are the 8th and 9th.
Aug 23-Sept 22
With Jupiter still in your solar 1st house and now moving direct it would seem you could make some headway. This progress is delayed until after the full moon on the 20th when Jupiter stars to separate from the squares with Saturn and Neptune. Pay attention to what information comes to you at that time. You are more than ready for change for the better. Jupiter is exactly conjunct the north node on the 20th so something more aligned with your dharmic path will present itself. Good days for progress are the 10th, 11th and pre-sundown on the 12th.
Sept 23-Oct 23
Your ruling planet, Venus, is opposite Saturn right now bringing a few lessons in reality called, when the rubber meets the road! Learning to work and be happy within limitations is a good thing or you would turn into a spoiled indulgent brat and be impossible to deal with. You have more important things going on to work on, namely a rather mysterious health condition that defies diagnosis. With Neptune and the south node in your solar 6th house you need to make some adjustments in lifestyle to feel up to par. Best days to start anew are the 13th and 14th.
Oct 24-Nov 22
With Mars retrograde in your 1st house now you have the opportunity for a “do over” on yourself. It is a great time to get a personal shopper or image consultant help you with your appearance and presentation. You won’t regret this as the energy supports change to get the most out of the surge of energy when Mars goes direct on the 29th. The mutable square energy has you tightening your belt over you and your spouse’s money. Long range planning is required over the next 3 months. Get some R&R on the 15th and 16th.
Nov 23-Dec 21
With Saturn retrograde in your 1st house involved with the mutable squares you are hard pressed to make progress in many aspects of your life. The goal is working with integrity and keeping your commitments to your family, partners and career goals. This is a time you can’t slack off and get away with it. Your ruling planet, Jupiter, connects with the north node on the full moon of the 20th and that should bring in a clue about where you are heading next. How to get there involves your integrity and commitment. Best days for you are the 18th, 19th and the wee hours of the 20th.
Dec 22-Jan 20
Your work, health and habits are the main focus this month but belief systems and how you communicate are also to be given your attention. You have a lot of personal power with Pluto in your sign so use it to create the inspiring life you desire….that is, use your power for good. Mars Rx in your solar 11th house may bring about some changes in who you associate with on both business and personal levels. All good as some people aren’t quite a fit for you anymore. Good days for making solid connections are the 20th, 21st and 22nd.
Jan 21-Feb 20
With Saturn Rx in your solar 11th house, you have challenges regarding how to fulfill your wishes, aspirations and ambitions right now. Things are still difficult to put in motion over the next 3 months before the mutable squares move apart. Things are looking up in the finance department as you might be getting a good sized tax refund or some investments will pay off handsomely. Have a little fun while you are at it! Best days for that are the 23rd and 24th.
Feb 21-Mar 20
Neptune in your first house will be going into retrograde motion on the 13th for the next 5 months. Right now it is opposing Jupiter and squaring both Saturn and Venus and the Sun. A bit of stagnation around many parts of your life that won’t get dislodged until later this month as Jupiter breaks free of the square relationship. Your partner might get some amazing opportunity around the full moon on the 20th so pay attention to what comes in. You, as well, could have something different catch your attention. Change is in the air! The 25th and 26th could also be lucky for you.
