Stalled plans could move forward on the 3rd, when mental Mercury moves forward in your sign. Don’t hesitate to promote your agenda on this fateful day. Instead of wasting time on a lot of pleasant chitchat, it may be better to get straight to the point. An influential person will appreciate your direct approach. You may be put in charge of an important department on the 9th, due to a trine between the commanding Sun and powerful Pluto. Take this opportunity to exercise your natural leadership ability. The team will be grateful to follow someone who has a practical plan for fixing a toxic environment.

The Full Moon on the 10th could find you benefitting from a romantic or business partner’s luck. More money for luxuries might become available. Take this opportunity to splash out on a few creature comforts that were previously out of reach. If you’ve been longing to travel, the 12th would be ideal. That’s when Mars, your ruling planet, will make a trine to adventurous Jupiter; taking a trip to an exotic land could feel like a second honeymoon for many couples. If you’re single, there’s a good chance you’ll meet someone special on this journey.

On the 25th, the New Moon will encourage you to expand your skillset. Studying with an encouraging teacher will be a labor of love. Beware of adopting a know-it-all attitude with your instructor, especially in the days surrounding the 28th, when Mars opposes accomplished Saturn.
