See what the stars have in store for you this month thanks to SheSaid’s resident astrologer Michele Finey…
As Venus and Mars align, stronger ties and bonds are forged but you need to establish some ground rules. Once you take the initiative and set things in motion, there will be no reason to squabble over molehills, in fact any differences will dissolve as you come to realise you have more in common than you thought.
Venus and Mars unite for the second time in two months, this time in your sign, fuelling your desires. It’s possible you have never felt so in sync before. Regardless of where current passions and interests lie, now is the time to make firm declarations, decisions and commitments.
Now that Mercury has resumed forward motion you can breathe a sigh of relief. Yet just when you think things are getting back to normal, you may suddenly realise a crucial piece of information has been overlooked or that someone has totally missed the point. Double check all communication of the past few weeks.
The winter solstice brings a somewhat unexpected turn of events. Declarations of love or generous gifts may take you by surprise; revealing the true esteem in which you are held. For some, this ushers in a wonderful period of romance, for others fresh opportunities for creative self expression.
Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron unite and send healing to heal your heart. This is a special time for forgiveness. You might also find you are recognised, rewarded, or acknowledged in some way. Be humble and gracious, even towards those who may have previously stood in the way.
Surprising relationship developments are in store as Venus and Mars traverse your 9th house of travel and inspiration. A special invitation to a romantic destination may surprise, and put work on the backburner, at least temporarily. Take the leap of faith, work can wait.
As Venus and Mars align in your house of passion, the love temperature is set to rise. In this passionate pressure cooker you cannot help exposing your vulnerability. While you may fear opening your heart so fully to another, there is no reason to, for the overwhelming feeling is one of redemption and healing.
While some people run and hide from their emotions, they are your life blood. Even though your soft underbelly is usually hidden beneath an armour coat of steely control, there is no way you can avoid letting your deeper feelings surface now as this alignment of Venus and Mars is certain to break down your defences.
Jupiter normally hurtles along at break neck speed, but now it slows and asks you to reflect on the meaning and purpose of your life. Just where are you are heading and why? Events around the Full Moon on the 7th give you pause to reflect. Slow down the hectic pace and tune into your inner voice, and answers will soon emerge.
Decisions around relationships are on the cards this month. While you usually play your cards very close to your chest, in the game of love, someone has to make the first move and this person is you. Be assured that others will respond if you play your cards right. You hold a winning hand.
This is a profound time. Once every 13 years Neptune and Jupiter align, and now Chiron is joining them. You have a unique opportunity to heal the past and join with your true purpose. Nothing is impossible under these conditions, but it does mean that decisive action is now called for.
Your ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune are joining forces, heralding a tremendous opportunity to create the future you want, here and now. Professionally, personally and in relationships, healing vibrations flow, revealing to you the poignant magic of the cycle of life. Dreams do come true.
