Things are explosive from the get-go this month as your ruling planet Mars meets Uranus (lightning bolt innovations) and the North Node (unbridled growth) on the 1st. This rare aspect brings seismic fluctuations to your money, income streams and resources. Whether you’re left at a loss or with an unexpected windfall, much of your month is spent trying to adjust to living with what you have. Pressure from friends or coworkers to do things their way is your biggest frustration while dealing with all this change. You might want to hire your BFF’s financial planner, but that doesn’t mean you have the same priorities with your budget. Mars moves into Gemini on the 20th, kicking off a six month period of transition for your schedule, hobbies and friend groups. It’s time to consider who and what you really want to give your time, and the new moon in Virgo on the 27th is the perfect opportunity to set intentions for better habits.
Love Horoscope: Venus moves into Leo and your romance sector on the 11th heating up what’s already been a season of pleasure and dating. As the love planet squares off with surprising Uranus on the 27th, you make an unexpected connection with someone who isn’t your usual type. Go with the flow.
Money Horoscope: As mentioned already, this month is a huge one for your finances. Along with the shifts in your cash flow, you may also find yourself tempted to overspend while Mars is in Taurus through the 20th. When in doubt, send $20 to savings rather than splurging on takeout.
