Our Crack Horoscopes
The sun is in your sign (until 23rd), which means it’s your time of year. Mercury (for ease of communication) and Venus (for ease of relationship, harmony, and finances) are both in your sign until midmonth, and Mars (for strong drive and motivation) is with you all month. It doesn’t mean it’s all plain sailing, but it does mean challenges feel more surmountable than usual. From 6th until around full moon time on 14th the tension might be tangible in relationships, especially with certain family members, but this full moon is about things coming to a head in order to release some pressure and move situations forward.
Mercury and Venus move into your sign on the day of the full moon on 14th. It indicates you and others being ready to talk, and to listen. It also means your words are more eloquent, peaceful and diplomatic than ever, so feel confident that the right words will come at the right time, despite those full moon emotions running high. From 21st it’s easy to let doubts or power struggles get in the way of what matters, so keep on keeping things in perspective. The Sun moves into your sign from 23rd, which means you’re feeling inspired to hatch new plans and projects; especially around the annual new moon in your sign on 28th.
One of the symbols of Scorpio is the eagle, with good reason, as your powers of observation are finest in the zodiac and can sum up situations and others motives with pin-point accuracy. But there’s a meeting of planets that lasts all month suggesting it’s easy to lose perspective at times, meaning it’s easy to mis-read, lose context, or get things out of proportion given current circumstances. So don’t let beliefs run away with you without checking and rechecking facts, particularly around 6th, 12th, 14th and 21st. Especially so around finances or purchases, where you long to take a leap of faith, but really need to read the terms and conditions extra carefully.
There’s a super-practical vibe to much of the month so you’re fine-tuning plans or sorting out what stands in your way, especially for career and ambition. There’s also a dreamy, creative vibe that can’t be denied no matter how practical your approach, and around the 6th and the full moon on 14th it’s about the balance that needs to be reached between these two sides of yourself. It’s easy to lose perspective at times this month (especially 6th and 21st) because of this, for example being too self-critical at times. From 14th and 23rd it’s all about friendship, like-minds and kindred spirits, and maybe some new connections and contacts with the new moon on 28th.
Your ruling planet is Saturn, and this month (from 18th) it’s no longer retrograde (appearing to move backwards). This means you’re experiencing an important turning point or change in direction, and if you look back to events in April you might notice a connection to what is happening now, or notice how much your perspective on certain situations has changed since then. It’s like you’ve been restructuring or rebuilding your path since April, and now you’re ready to move forward on it again. The new moon in your house of long-term plans and ambition on 28th supports this, indicating new commitments in career, relationship, or both.
Nowhere to hide this month. Events seem determined to push you out of your comfort zone; whether it’s in work, love, or family matters, things are happening that you just have to run with, and not away from. In many cases though this serves you extremely well, for example things are being said or coming out into the open, which can increase intimacy and deepen bonds. Other situations require a leap of faith, and that requires you to dig deep and first find that faith again. Full moon time on the 14th might be a time of change or movement in stuck situations, while the new moon on 28th is about the new opportunities for expansion.
There’s a continuation of last month’s theme of focus on relationship and partnership. Lots of planets in this area of your chart until around 23rd suggest much is happening. It’s a positive time, when new relationships start and existing relationship deepen, but it’s also a time when tensions or conflicts might rise to the surface more, especially around 6th and 14th. This does not mean anything has gone wrong, just that it’s on the table to sort out right now. There’s also a general theme all month about perspective and belief, and how different outlooks lead to different outcomes. Keep it positive and empowering, in other words.
Lots of little things to sort out this month (especially 6th, 12th, 14th, 21st), which takes determination to hold a perspective and keep seeing problems as molehills rather than mountains; and to not over-reach, over-react, or over-indulge out of frustration with current circumstances. From full moon time on the 14th there’s a new vibe for relationship and partnership, which encourages good communication and openness. This feeling of resonance and common ground increases from 23rd; especially around new moon (new beginnings) time on 28th, and is great for new or renewed relationship, and for getting to know each other better.
Lots of planets in the most creative part of your chart means it’s time to satisfy your artistic or inventive side. Teaming up with others, in partnership or a group setting is on the cards this month but it’s important to not lose yourself to others’ ideas and to stand your ground with what is meaningful and valuable to you. Around 6th, 12th, 14th and 21st is most challenging and rewarding in that. There’s a new moon in your chart of health and fitness on 28th, which means new beginnings, so it’s a good time for lifestyle changes, or to recommit to diets and exercise.
There is tension and pressure in certain situations, right up to midmonth (the full moon on 14th might bring things to a head somewhat), but it’s a kind of productive tension that pushes for results and solutions. It’s likely to involve home and family, partners, and long-term goals somehow. For example, home alterations might get underway which are messy and teeth-clenching at times, but oh so worth it in the long run. From the 14th and especially from 23rd the mood is more upbeat, light-hearted and fun-orientated. Romance and matters of the heart have your full attention too. You’re on the same page as someone, powerfully, and you both enjoy the discovery and discussion of it.
Lots of planets in your communication chart for much of the month means you’re still on a mission to sort out messages, documents, or phone calls that have been cluttering your mind or desk for some time. You always have a sharp eye for detail but it’s actually very easy to misread or misjudge meaning this month, so check facts and context carefully, especially around 6th, 12th, 14th and 21st. The sun moves into your chart of home and family from the 23rd, so that is what events revolve around, and the new moon there on 28th is about new beginnings in store that inspire a new sense of balance and harmony.
A bunch of planets are in your finance and resources chart for much of the month, which means sorting statements and bank balances, or welcoming new income, jobs or promotions. It also might mean you’re in the mood to buy things, just for the feel good factor perhaps but second-guessing this urge to spend big might serve you better, especially up to midmonth and around full moon on 14th, because things might not be what they first appear. Check the small print at least. Then from 14th there’s a stronger focus on communication, and you really do have the gift of the gab this month, especially in love and romance, so enjoy the sparkly charm and rapport in abundance.
