With Mercury (your Ruling Planet) retrograde, and with 90 to 100 per cent of the planets in the West, avoid power struggles like the plague. Your social grace will carry you to heights that sheer force of will could never dream of. This is an important and happy social month. Let other people and their interests come first.
By the 13th, 60 to 70 per cent of the planets will be above the Horizon, showing an ever increasing interest in career and worldly activities. With Mercury (also your Career Planet) retrograde until the 14th, this is a good period for reviewing, re-evaluating and setting career goals.
Executing these plans can come later.
Though Mercury is retrograde this is still a month of great personal progress and achievement, as 90 per cent of the planets are in forward motion. But progress will come from and through others.
Your important areas of interest this month are health and work, love and social activities, transformation, the libido, debts and their repayment, helping others to prosper, religion, philosophy, higher education, foreign travel and foreign affairs.
Health is superb on an overall level, but rest and relax more until the 20th. You will start feeling more zippy and self-confident when Mercury goes forward on the 14th, and really energetic when the Sun enters Aries on the 20th. Health and financial issues are unusually connected until the 13th. Many of you are more concerned with financial health than with physical health. Many of you are spending more on health products now – and perhaps investing in health industries.
Job-seekers have excellent prospects until the 13th. After that the prospects are average.
Finances are strong this month as Venus gets electrified as it passes Uranus. Money comes out of the blue – when you least expect it. Money comes from work, perhaps from overtime opportunities, and from co-workers. After the 13th, money comes through your spouse or lover – or through social contacts. Social affairs play a big role in earnings after the 13th. Parties and social gatherings boost your bank balance.
Love is active and happy now. Like last month, there is a tendency to be obsessive about it – a feeling of being addicted to love or to the beloved. As time goes on this feeling will ease up, but for now it is intense. Love is both practical and idealistic during this period. You want romance and all the niceties, but also someone who can help you attain financial goals and feel secure. Spiritual compatibility is still very important.
