Your ruling planet Mars is back up to speed and forging ahead in the zodiac once again. This is good news for you especially as your ruling planet has been retrograde or on go slow for the last two and a half months.
This is a positive period to look back at the goals and aims you set at the beginning of the year and see how far you’ve come.
Wherever in life you’ve been held back or frustrated recently, this month’s energy is dynamic and go-getting, ideal for launching new initiatives and starting afresh. A new phase is beginning and it’s the ideal time to push ahead with your boldest ideas.
This is a focused, laser-oriented Mars in the water sign Scorpio which is brilliant for research, analysis and detective work. Trust your instincts and follow your gut feelings in order to know your best course of action. At its best Mars in Scorpio denotes psychic abilities.
Scorpio rules joint finances and shared resources in your chart and you might find that what’s taking place in your life now is linked to events in the second half of February of this year. Mars is going over the same points in the zodiac as it was back then.
This month highlights collaboration and working alongside other people to ensure your own and your family’s security. This can be financial or linked to your emotional well-being. The personal planets, the Sun (identity), Venus (relating) and Mercury (communication) all spend some time this month in the water sign Cancer ruling your home and family.
In addition, your planet Mars makes three key aspects to Venus on the 6th, Mercury on the 11th and the Sun on the 17th. This feels helpful and supportive and you can move ahead quickly with regard to home and family affairs. The other key date is the 4th, Independence Day, when there’s a New Moon in Cancer, a symbol of new beginnings.
Up until the Full Moon on the 19th, it’s full steam ahead with home plans, a property move or family negotiations. This is where protection lies and also potentially prosperity. It’s time to put family first and to think about what unity means to you, whether this is related to close family or your place in the world.
You might feel the urge to do your bit now for your country or to work alongside other people all in the name of a good cause. Last month’s astrology flagged up division and opposition but what’s important this month is to look at how you can help other people out and ask for advice or support. Together you’re bigger and better.
Yet it’s important to note that the rebellious side of your character which craves change also dominates in the month ahead. Financially you’re better off teaming up with family or benefiting from past connections but as the month continues, you will be less content playing happy families or dealing with everyday connections.
This is because of the planet of change, Uranus, which is lighting up your sign of Aries and is especially potent this month if your birthday falls between the 13th and 15th April. It’s also triggering change if you have any key planets/angles at 24 Aries. This is because on the 29th, Uranus turns retrograde in the heavens.
Uranus is an unpredictable energy linked to shocks and surprises. It acts as a catalyst to the side of your nature which is easily bored and loves to start something new. Uranus is linked to modern technology and new ways of acting and thinking. It’s effectively the New Age planet and rules astrology.
You can make the most of this crazy, wild planetary activity but at the same time check that you’re not throwing away all that’s good and true in your life. If you want to split from the past or you’re looking for new beginnings, it’s the ideal time to act but note too that you might miss out on support, both financial and emotional, which a more collaborative approach to life will bring.
The Full Moon on the19th cuts across the foundations of your chart with the Sun at the bottom in the home and family sign of Cancer and the Moon at the top in the work-oriented sign of Capricorn. This is the time when you will see your own situation clearly and you might need to make a decision about which area of your life is most important.
As July continues, you also benefit from the personal planets entering your fellow fire sign of Leo and this feels playful and fun. Venus is first on the 12th followed by Mercury on the 14th and the Sun on the 22nd.
Leo rules all the good things in life in your chart, such as romance, children & pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and fun. Mid-month you’ll be more than ready to throw yourself into a playful project and to embrace life head on.
Plus, you’re no longer prepared to hold back and deny yourself new experiences or adventure. The 19th and 20th are especially good dates for booking a holiday or an exciting trip away.
If you’re looking for love, this is your month for action and the happier you are within yourself, the easier it will be to attract other people into your life.
If you’re in a relationship or married, the 6th is a pivotal date when you can come together to further your plans for a home, family or connectedness.
