Yours is the most romantic sign of the zodiac and this month your romantic nature is being called forth.
As the month begins, Venus, the planet of love and relating, is in sentimental Cancer, the sign that rules new love and romance in your chart.
Venus only remains here until the 5th but the scene is set and you’re right to focus on what you want when it comes to love and lay out your stall. Venus in Cancer is a caring combination when you want to be nurtured and cared for and to give love and nurturing in return.
Two new planets pick up the romance baton on the 21st and 24th when first the Sun (identity) and then Mars (passion/libido) enter Cancer. This is when progress can be made on the love and relationship front and being proactive will do you no harm at all.
In fact, you might find it impossible to ignore love and relationships this month as your ruling planet Neptune is so powerful. This is because Neptune turns retrograde on the 12th and you often feel the energy of a planet most powerfully when it stations in the heavens. You might feel all consumed by love, your emotions, the need for more romance in your life whether you’re currently in or out of love.
It is this mid-month period that feels powerful for you because the day before Neptune turns retrograde, Mercury, which is your partner planet, turns direct in the heavens on the 11th. When Mercury is on go slow, you often don’t have the full picture, things are hidden from you. Yet once Mercury turns direct, new information comes to light or you hear the news you’ve been waiting for.
Whatever your current relationship situation, these two dates feel powerful. At last you can have the heart to heart you crave, the switch flicks from off to on. You can’t hold back what you’re feeling so talk, connect, communicate.
Falling in love can be an unsettling experience however when you no longer feel rooted to the earth and emotions overwhelm. Mercury and Neptune come together by square aspect on the 23rd. This is the third and final connection of these two planets which met twice before on May 9th and May 29th.
If you’ve felt all at sea with regard to love or romance has dominated your life, your dreams, the tide is finally coming into shore. Don’t be surprised if your emotions are especially powerful now and put off any major love decisions until the second half of the month.
You do need to focus some of your attention and energy at least on to other areas of your because this is potentially a successful month for you. The Full Moon on the 2nd takes place in Sagittarius, the sign up at the top of your chart ruling your career and vocation. Full Moons often bring clarity, the light of the moon is at its brightest and you can trust your intuition.
Notice what appears in your life on or around this date, notice where your heart lies when it comes to work, your future and where you’re heading. This can be a big month for you with regard to your working life as Jupiter, your ruling planet, is currently powerful.
Jupiter is strong in Leo, the sign that rules your work, your everyday routine, your lifestyle and your health. This is where your opportunities lie and where to focus your intentions. Whether you’re looking for new work or you would like to lead a healthy lifestyle, Jupiter’s got your back.
Plus, Jupiter is heading towards a stunning trine aspect with Uranus, the planet of change and the unexpected, in Aries and your money sector on the 22nd. This is the third and final connection of these two mighty planets. They first met in September 2014, they connected again in March earlier this year and this is their third and most powerful aspect.
Together they signal a breakthrough or a chance to break free. Look out for new opportunities, new excitement, a burst of energy, a new job or contract that brings in extra cash. Look at ways you can use your money to boost your work and your lifestyle and look at how you want to spend your money or invest your money so you feel good about yourself and what you do.
This is also linked in some way to your home and family, perhaps a chance to feel more rooted or more secure. Both the Sun (identity) and Mars (action) are in Gemini and this sector of your chart as the month begins and both planets connect with the Jupiter-Uranus trine on the 5th and 9th and the 8th and 10th. Plus Mercury, the planet of communication, turns direct in Gemini on the 11th.
This signals that communication is your way forward. Talk to family, get advice from the ones you love, look at ways you can use your home to maximise your earning potential. Whether you rent out a room, upsize, downsize, change around your living accommodation in some way, look at how you can make the most of your current situation.
A good date to make any key changes that impact on your home and family is the 16th when there’s a New Moon in Gemini and this sector of your chart. A New Moon symbolises new beginnings, a chance to start afresh or launch a new project.
In some way, your stars this month are about getting the basics right and ensuring that you feel happy on a daily basis. Think what this means for you, whether you want to spend more time with your children, you want to live somewhere different, you’re looking for a new job or you want to be closer to family.
It’s interesting that Saturn, the taskmaster the heavens, leaves Sagittarius and your career sector on the 15th for a period of three months. If you know that you’re not on track with your career or your future direction life, this might be the time for a rethink, a chance to set up your life so you can do things differently.
It might feel like a work in progress but the signposts are there this month and there’s a lot of happiness and pleasure to be found in the little things. What you do for a living, how you spend your days, this is where to focus on getting the most pleasure out of your life. Here’s where daily blessings can be found.
