The ongoing conjunction between Saturn and Pluto eases up this month making us all feel a little bit less anxious about our future. However on the 19th Mars and Uranus form a trine aspect to each other, this can be positive if a little bit manic in its planetary energy for us all. On the 17th Mercury begins its journey in retrograde motion in Pisces. This really is the signature astrological speaking of smoke and mirrors. Mercury is in detriment in Pisces and going backwards can really play havoc with the collective unconscious. On the 23rd we have a Full Moon at 4 degrees in Pisces, amplifying the retrograde energy, three men advancing arm in arm, this is in the degree of accord. It symbolises close allies and friendship from different countries in Europe, there is a compromise in the political arena that will have a major impact on trading overseas.
On the 8th of this month Venus transits into your own sign giving you strong diplomatic skills in negotiation. This is also amplified on the 16th as Mars goes into your solar 10th house ruling career and aspirations. There is so much energy in terms of the external life force that you will have to be careful you don’t overpower those around you.
The energy of the month for you is going to be one of looking at how you have reacted to situations in the past that you felt were beyond your control. In essence its important that you don’t put yourself in a environment that is going to fuel your temper , this means anything that is beyond reproach, leave alone.
The emphasis is still on partnerships from last month, only this time it’s been made much more complicated by your ruler Mercury making a square aspect to Mars. This is a period to not get caught up in other people’s dramas; you will only end up with less freedom and energy to take a step back.
This is going to be the last full month till July that Saturn is going to be in your opposite sign. This should bring a sign of relief as the structured limitations that have been imposed on you are going to begin to be less effective. This will make you feel lighter in your energy and outlook and add a touch of playfulness to your life.
The planet Uranus is moving quickly this month through your 10th house, so expect career changes to take place over the next four weeks. From the 17th we have a Mercury retrograde in Pisces in your 8th house , this can add confusion to your partners finances , but also add confusion to your own spiritual development – try not to attach to much importance to this aspect.
We have Mercury retrograde from the 17th of this month on your opposing sign of Pisces in the relationship area of your chart.

From the 8th Venus moves into your placement of partnerships, this is significant and a real starting point for your year ahead.
