How you handle money matters is key to your success this month. This is potentially a wealthy period for you with the planet of abundance, Jupiter, now established in Virgo and your personal money sector yet there are different influences and good timing is all important.
On the 3rd of the month, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, conjoin in Virgo and this same sector of your chart. This feels like good news whether you celebrate from someone else’s good fortune or there’s a theme of gifts in your life, either giving or receiving.
Jupiter is in action too in the first fortnight and the 11th and 13th are especially powerful for you financially. Look at new agreements which can be drawn up on or around these dates, perhaps linked to your home and property, your family or your past. This is a positive time to boost your good fortune around money and entrepreneurial activities are well-starred.
If you’re looking for work or a new job, jump to it early in the month and use this positive planetary energy to good effect. This is about establishing strong foundations for yourself and your family and any project which links to long-term gain is worth investing in.
Virgo is your personal money sector and the word ‘personal’ tells you a lot. It’s about taking charge of your own financial affairs whatever your current situation. Don’t bury your head in the sand with regard to money, ensure you read the small print, learn basic accounting skills and don’t leave your financial fortune entirely in the hands of other people.
The turning point this month comes on the 18th and flags up an area where you need to heed caution where money’s concerned. This is due to the planet Neptune currently in Pisces and your joint finance sector. Neptune turns direct on the 18th and later in the month there are some powerful planetary aspects involving Neptune all of which are challenging.
Neptune is the charitable planet but you can easily get swept away with the idea of a good cause without establishing whether the good cause is rooted in reality and governed by people with good business sense. Neptune is seductive and when it’s in a challenging aspect in a money sector in your chart, it’s important to be streetwise and not fall for a scam or a too-good-to-be-true offer.
Even if someone offers you money in the second half of this month, double check whether there are strings attached as this is an emotional as well as financial connection. Someone might offer you money or help in the spirit of generosity and yet underneath their offer, they are expecting something back in return. The dates to be extra savvy around cash are the 25th/26th and 29th/30th.
Home and family are important to you now with the Sun, your ruling planetary body, in Scorpio and this sector of your chart until the 22nd. Plus the Sun is joined by communication planet Mercury from the 2nd to the 20th. This is prime time to sort out your domestic life, initiate important conversations at home, a heart-to-heart and consider your next steps regarding your home or the place you wish to live.
If you need to spend more time with family or rebuild strong family connections, here’s your opportunity. The New Moon on the 11th takes place in Scorpio indicating that it’s in these areas of your life where you can set new intentions and initiate action. DIY, property matters, family get-togethers all prosper under this planetary energy.
It’s also going to be a sociable month when you’re running here, there and everywhere. The relating planets, Venus and Mars, leave Virgo on the 8th and 12th respectively and enter the sociable sign of Libra. Libra rules communication in your chart and this is the ideal time to widen your social circle, to make new friends and go new places.
The 21st-23rd is the only tricky period with regard to communication and perhaps education or travel as Venus in Libra clashes with the outer planets Pluto and Uranus. This indicates that plans have to change suddenly and it flags up a difference of opinion. You might get called into work or you’re expected to be flexible with your time. Take care what you agree to before leaping in.
As Venus is the love planet and Uranus is one of your partner planets, the 23rd could be a significant date for your 1-to-1’s. Uranus creates distance or emotional detachment and it’s not a symbol that suggests closeness and unity. Be aware of this and don’t demand or expect too much from a loved one on or around this date.
There is a serious edge to love and relationships too as the month comes to a close. Saturn is the other planet which co-rules your relationship sector, your partnerships and Saturn dominates the planetary activity from the 25th onwards.
Saturn is currently in Sagittarius, the sector of your chart which rules love affairs, children and pregnancy, your self-expression, creative projects and entertainment. Saturn can dampen things down and make one of these areas of your life hard-going. You have to consider where you find joy when Saturn’s energy is strong.
Plus when it comes to love, you might need to look seriously at issues around sex or children or fidelity. Emotions are heightened in the last week of the month due to the Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis on the 25th and this often brings important matters to light.
What’s really important is that you don’t allow your imagination to run away with you and you stay grounded whatever’s going on in your personal life. It will help to put boundaries in place which everyone involved must adhere to.
At some level, you might realise you have little control over the end result as the Saturn/Neptune square on the 26th evokes a theme of surrender or letting go.
