There is a planetary intensity this month as Mars is travelling in its rulership zodiac sign of Scorpio, creating a wave of collective transformation until the 25th when the God of War transits Sagittarius. Jupiter is still retrograde in Taurus forcing issues to do with the banking sector and property prices being in the news for all the wrong reasons. However the major astrological breakthrough is the planet Saturn moves direct on the 4th. Saturn has been travelling backwards in the sky since the middle of June in the zodiac sign of Pisces. This shift of Saturn energy should help to heal some of the wounds in society that have caused issues to do with compassion. This is magnified from the 8th as Venus enters Libra, a celebration of the arts and a need to live in much more peaceful times to be presented as a new vision for the world from a political and economic perspective.
