With the Sun in chatty, restless, scattered Gemini until the 21st there’ll be too much going on, demanding much multi-tasking and juggling several balls in the air at once. But it certainly won’t be boring. There’ll be high hopes, then disappointment, followed by dither and indecision in week one. Mars moving into emotional, excitable cancer on the 4th to stay for several weeks will raise the heat in discussions and lead to impulsive behaviour. Luckily Venus moving into Taurus two days later to stay till early July will add a balance of calm stoicism.
Mid month the downbeat Saturn opposition to the Sun will not raise spirits for parties but will fix several mistakes and bring a note of realism. In the final ten days the Sun and Mercury join Mars in the self-protective, home-loving though pro-active sign of Cancer. It won’t be all sentimental and drenched in feelings however. Mars picks up a gung-ho, anything-goes square to Jupiter on the 25th, moving towards the Pluto opposition on July 2nd, which will cast its shadow in advance. So it’s likely to be high-wire, pushy, risk-taking and frustrating.

Jupiter in Libra from September 9th 2016 until October 11 2017 – keen on reaching better agreements with others, that are fair to all, expansive for one-to-one partnerships. Then into Scorpio for a year.
Saturn: In Sagittarius from September 19th 2015 till late December 2017 – serious about knowledge, education, legal matters, religion. Defensive about criticism, self-righteous. Then into Capricorn till 2020.
Uranus: In Aries from 1 March 2011 till 2018 – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead. Then into Taurus 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.
