This is a month to get serious about love and work, Aries, and prioritize your schedule so you are super-productive. Powerful eclipse energy, both solar and lunar, injects energy to help you make decisions and move forward with certainty and you want to be in a position to take up opportunities as they cross your path. Venus comes out of retrograde this month on the sixth and will shine a light on your social life as well as romance and love affairs. You can connect with people now more easily and the right people can suddenly appear. This month, you can make a significant difference in your life, in a positive way, take advantage of it!
With serious Saturn finally moving out of your relationship zone, love and romance can take on a lighter note. It will allow you to get out and be social to meet someone suitable, especially as Venus, your ruler, comes out of retrograde early in the month. Family affairs also lighten up, with a good chance of past issues being resolved. Mercury comes out of retrograde and can put a hold on work decisions, but it can provide you with precious thinking time. And as an earth sign, you are best if you can weigh everything up before making a final decision. Your long-range goals can start to move into place now, and you need to stay positive as what comes next does promise to be better than what has come to pass.
There is never a dull or boring moment in a Gemini’s life, and this month continues to support that theme. With two eclipses, there is plenty of energy to get things moving. Your family and social life get a hit of energy, but don’t be surprised if you part company with someone, and not because you have a falling out, more so because you are just moving in different directions. Saturn moves to your relationship area and can start a discussion about the future and whether you and someone else have the same priorities. And Mercury, your ruling plane, goes retrograde on the 18th, which can put a delay on plans, but it will give you time to think things through on a more detailed level.
Venus and Pluto both come out of retrograde this month, and for you, Cancer, love and money, your two favorite things in life are about to increase with a shot of energy to both areas. You can expect to gain clarity on a love situation and find out exactly how you, or someone else, feels about your current situation and decide where to go from here. The solar eclipse in your money zone indicates the start of something new that can be beneficial financially. And the lunar eclipse later in the month can have you rearranging your work life in some way – keep an open mind to different options available. Some of you will be saying good-bye to an unworkable situation only to embrace something new and better.
If things in your love life seem to have been on hold, that can all change this month when Venus comes out of retrograde. The love goddess sits in your sign, Leo, and you can expect to feel a lighter energy around all things love and relationships, as well as monetary matters and opportunities. However, as Mercury goes retrograde mid month on the 18th, you will need to be careful of what you say and how you say it – and remember the importance of timing. Your finances can get a boost with the solar eclipse mid month, and the lunar eclipse towards the end of the month will prompt you to revaluate your life and the journey you travel to arrive at your destination.

However, Mercury, your ruler, goes retrograde for its third and final time this year and cautions you to think carefully about money matters.

Saturn will move to your solar second house, the area of money and possessions and also the area of your self-worth, and for the next two-year period, Saturn can challenge you to step up and ask for what you are worth and not undersell yourself. But the good news is, he leaves your sign and the energy around you becomes a lot lighter and brighter, and now you can reflect on the soul searching you did over the alt few years.
