The month begins with a strong Solar eclipse, ringing in the potential for changes of all sorts. This is a powerful New Moon in health conscious Virgo, making it a good time for a reality check. If you need to change direction, maybe you can recalculate and or recalibrate and get healthier. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the 16th brings another opportunity to make changes, this time by eliminating what is no longer ireful or viable In your life. There is a second New Moon this month on the 30th, in Libra, bringing another chance to smooth out the wrinkles in our day to day existence by acknowledging and working on the consciously.

The first three weeks, Mercury Retrograde makes it a great month for all those re things we need to do: repair, restore, restock, revise, report, restructure, review etc.. Its a good time to withdraw a little and study, meditate or contemplate. Mercury is all about communication; I hear from folks I havent heard from for ages at this time. With the slowdown do check and recheck all directions and arrangements so as to avoid confusion. Case in point, two people meeting at the appointed hour standing on opposite corners of a busy street waiting for each other!

Being first retrograde then on the 22nd direct, Mercury, is in Virgo all month, Venus, however goes from elegant Libra to intense Scorpio two thirds of the way through. Mars leaves energetic Sagittarius for diligent Capricorn on the 23rd. Jupiter enters liberal Libra on the 9th. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all still retrograde, although Pluto turns direct on the 27th. The Sun starts the month in quality control Virgo and gentles into Libra on the 2322nd with the equinox, bringing a change of pace from diligent to laid back.

Be mindful also on the 23rd with a Sun/Saturn Square not to miss a hidden opportunity. A Saturn/Neptune square on the 10th cautions about deception, Venus/Pluto squared on the 10th/ 11th indicates a potential for disruptive choices. Mercury Mars square the 12th warns to avoid quarrels, controversy. Sun/Mars square the 13th says dont overdo. On the other hand, encouraging aspects begin with a Mercury/Jupiter conjunction on the 2nd, promoting enthusiasm, on the 6th and 7th a Sun/Pluto trine means good energy for changes.

The Sun/Mercury conjunction on the 12th helps boost communication, on the16th and 17th Mars/Uranus trine brings inventive solutions, performances, and the 17th and 18th Venus/Uranus opposition could have us choosing between two opposing directions. The Mercury/Pluto trine on the 20th can bring good ideas and plans for change, the 23rd Mercury trines Pluto again, reinforcing what came about earlier.  The 25th and 26th Sun/Jupiter conjunction enhances fun and pleasure.
