In spite of Jupiter’s retrograde finances are good this month. You have the financial favour of bosses, elders, parents and parent figures these days. For the past two months this was lacking (last month it changed after the 23rd). Friends, your spouse, current love or partners – social connections in general – are supportive.
Career also looks good, but you are working very hard -earning your success by the sweat of your brow. Your social connections are very helpful here as well. Good to get involved with trade or professional organizations. Astrology is a very useful tool for your career now as well. After the 23rd you can enhance your career through involvement with charities or causes.
Good use of technology – technological expertise – is important both financially and in the career. Investments here seem good. Keep up to date.
Your family planet receives some stressful aspects this month. From the 16th to the 19th, Venus opposes it. From the 25th to the 29th the Sun and Mercury oppose it.
Venus’s opposition (and she will also square Pluto during that period) shows that there is some conflict or disagreement between your spouse, partner or current love and your family. Your current love, spouse or partner needs to be more mindful driving and around the house. He or she should avoid confrontations and conflicts – and if they happen, minimize them. Be more patient with your beloved during this period.
The Sun will make a similar aspect from the 25th to the 27th – this shows dramas with the parents or parent figures, and with bosses as well. It shows career changes or upheavals. These people should also be more mindful when driving or travelling, and also avoid conflicts and confrontations.
(You have been uncomfortable with family members or the family situation for some months – and change is brewing here. Most likely next year.)
Mercury’s aspects to Uranus and Pluto (from the 26th to the 29th) shows dramas with friends, or the conflict of friends with family. Friends, too, need to be more mindful during this period.
Health is good this month, but can be enhanced even further by paying more attention to your stomach, breasts and diet (until the 19th) and to your heart afterwards. Career problems – worries or anxieties – can have an impact on your health after the 19th. The health of a parent or parent figure as well. Do what is possible and then let go -refuse to worry or fret. (Easier said than done.)
On the 19th the planetary power shifts from the West to the East. The shift actually began last month, but now it is confirmed. There will be more planets in the East than the West for the rest of the year. So now you are in a period of greater independence. Social goals have probably been achieved (or progress made in that area) and now you are developing your personal self. Your personal merit and ability count more than whom you know. It is time to stop adapting to situations and begin to create situations -according to your specifications. After many months of adapting, you have a good sense of what is uncomfortable and needs to be changed, and for the next few months this is the time to do it.
