21st March – 20th April
Your ruler Mars has been retrograde (appearing to move backwards) since mid-April, meaning it’s been a time of readjustment and/or redirection in order to continue doing what matters most to you. Mars is moving forward again at the end of the month (30th), so June is about being on the way to an important turning point or change in direction. And on the way some situations will press your buttons or become a sore point (perhaps related to events late February?); if so, it’s a message to accept what you want can be a reality (if you don’t accept it, why should anyone else?). Noteworthy dates in all this are 5th, 9th, 12th, 15th and from 18th.
21st April – 21st May
There’s heavy focus on money, security, values and self-worth all month, especially new moon time on the 5th which is about important new beginnings on these themes. Certain situations seem fixed and inescapable during June, so it’s up to you to provide the flexibility. In other words, be the tree that bends not breaks in the wind. Appearances can be deceptive too, so don’t take anything or anyone at face value (easiest around 26th). From the 17th discussion and learning becomes increasingly important when Venus moves into your house of communication. You want to inform and be informed, and you’re in the mood to seek harmony, even when full moon solstice tension peaks (20th).
22nd May – 21st June
It’s your time of year. The new moon in your sign on the 5th suggests it’s a particularly powerful time for new beginnings and for building strong foundations in key areas of your life, and the sun in your sign until the 20th, is always about events that encourage your creative spirit to shine and be seen. The planets suggest this is not the easiest of months though, as they show sticking points and limits reached (2nd, 18th, 20th, 22nd); yet this only helps you focus more sharply and more clearly towards what you want. So bless the fog and frustrations for the sweet clarity you find as a result.
22nd June – 22nd July
For much of the month certain things appear beyond your direct control that you just have to go with the flow of and have faith in the bigger picture about. The new moon on the 5th speaks strongly of this, with the message that new beginnings are inevitable, especially involving communication and information. From the 17th love and harmony planet Venus moves into your sign, and on the 20th there’s an uplifting, adventure-seeking full moon on the day the sun moves into your sign (summer solstice). It all suggests that some situations are reaching a peak or coming to a head, and more choice and control is on the way.
23rd July – 23rd August
Basically the message of the month is that you know what to do for progress and development and so do it. Everyone around you has an opinion or new information about it that they are ready to share with you (especially around new moon time on the 5th). But at some point it’s time to let go of discussion and start valuing your own wisdom about it all. The seasonal marker of summer solstice along with an adventurous full moon on the 20th is about winds of change that gets things moving. Mars ends retrograde motion and moves forward from the 30th, which means momentum is building in the right direction.
24th August – 22nd September
It’s a peak or pivotal month in long term plans and ambition, especially regarding career, status and reputation, but also connecting to home, relationships and contracts or agreements. New moon on the 5th is about new beginnings in all this, while full moon on the 20th is about things coming to a head, or moving into fulfilment. Certain events do seem inevitable and unavoidable this month, but Saturn and Neptune join forces to dissolve pressure and limits (especially time limits). Communication can make you sensitive, and touch sore points or press buttons (maybe connects to mid-late February?), but there’s healing if you’re open and receptive to solutions (meaning decide you deserve to receive them).
23rd September – 23rd October
This is the kind of month where you can reap the rewards of previous hard work (also known as good preparation). Things are coming into alignment, or clicking into place at this time that couldn’t have happened before now, so there might be a feeling of fate or destiny that comes with some events (maybe noticeable around 2nd, 5th, 12th, 27th and 30th). You’re expanding horizons through travel or learning for much of the month, and integrating new ways of seeing and thinking about your world. From the 17th and especially after the 20th, you’re ready to focus on long-term plans and ambitions, especially career plans. Success has a way of making you want to look forward.
24th October – 22nd November
It’s a month of turnarounds and turning points, although it might be next month before you see the full effect of it all and feel momentum building in a really strong and tangible way. Mars is one of your planets, meaning it indicates significant happenings for you, and Mars has been retrograde (appearing to move backwards) since mid-April. It has been a period where action and activity has been about going over old ground, perhaps at a slower pace, or different direction. This will change from the 30th, but before that there’s some old wounds to heal (with links to events in February?), and some compassion to give yourself, and others.
23rd November – 21st December
It’s a relationship-themed month, whether it’s romance, family, work or business related. And for a freedom loving being like yourself, some events are challenging to experience as they seem too fixed, unchangeable or rigid (even stuck fast). The challenge can bring reward though, as less movement means more stability and focus, and therefore more clarity when you need inspiration and ideas the most (especially around 5th, 13th, 18th, 22nd). There’s a full moon in your sign on the 20th, full of rainbows and promises, and it’s up to you to keep the faith about it all. Message for the month is don’t forget to breathe (tension can do that), and find some fresh air to feel freedom.
22nd December – 20th January
There’s lots that feels out of your control this month, and plenty of demands, yet the chaos you expect to happen doesn’t. Possibly because there’s not that much flexibility about how things can go, which provides order and direction. Your ruler, sensible Saturn, meets nebulous Neptune again this month (last time was last November). It points to more challenges around communication, sibling relationships, and/or your neighbours and local area, but the positives are easy ice-breakers, blank slates, and bad habits dissolved. It’s a good time for a stock take of your life, as you aren’t attached to what needs to go, compassionate towards your mistakes, and have a weakness for celebrating your success.
21st January – 18th February
This month there’s enough synchronicity and serendipity in situations to challenge the idea that events are random or coincidental; meaning you will miss out on so much if you reject the idea that there’s a touch of magic in the air for you just because you can’t explain it or don’t understand how. The times you feel ‘in the zone’ matters right now. When all the traffic lights turn green as you approach and the checkout queues work in your favour; it’s real and measurable, and the more you notice it the more it happens. It’s the universe reminding you that there’s purpose to your path, so experiment and enjoy.
19th February – 20th March
Your planet is Neptune, and this month Neptune is at the heart of the astrology pattern; meaning you get to the heart of what matters to you despite any obstacles or limits. New moon in Gemini on the 5th is about new beginnings linked to home and family, and whatever makes you feel safe and emotionally settled. Neptune connects with practical, sensible Saturn (18th), which suggests you’re wanting everything to feel completely planned out and feasible right now which isn’t easy, or necessary, as it’s only the next obvious step that needs to be workable at any time; so rest of month (especially from 20th) is about letting go of your doubts about what’s possible.
