A firecracker start to the month arrives courtesy of a disruptive, overly excitable Mars Uranus square on the 2nd. No one will want to compromise so some differences of opinion may flare up. Then the entertaining, flamboyant and attention-demanding Leo Sun will be in exuberant form as it connects with expansive Jupiter thereafter before heading for the Solar Eclipse on the 11th. This is the third eclipse in the space of a month, one more than usual, so it will be a time of edgy anticipation.
Venus in sociable, fair-minded Libra from the 6th will be doing its best to pour oil on troubled waters and maintain calm, as well as throwing elegant parties.
Mars will reverse out of argumentative Aquarius on the 13th, into ambitious, practical Capricorn for a month bringing more constructive action and fewer words.
Mercury in colourful Leo will go direct on the 19th for an end to irksome delays and communication glitches.
Then the Sun proceeds into hard-working, conscientious Virgo in the final week with common-sensical and innovative aspects to Uranus and Saturn.
2: Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus – noisy, disruptive, rebellious.

26: Full Moon in Pisces – pulled in two directions
Venus square Pluto – seductive, manipulative, jealous.
27: Mars direct in Capricorn – plans you have been rethinking recently get the go-ahead.
28: Mercury square Jupiter – positive-thinking and speaking, overly-confident, careless of detail.
Jupiter in Scorpio from October 11 2017 till early November 2018 – could be a money-magnet, usually good for business and joint finances, or attracting bonuses. Interest in secrets and what lies beyond reality in the hidden realms of the paranormal.
Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till 2020/21 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence.
Uranus: In Aries from 1 March 2011 till May 15 2018 returning briefly from early November to early March 2019, when it leaves for good – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead. From May 15 2018 into Taurus– changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature. Stays for seven years.
Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.
Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
