Mars has now taken up residence for a lengthy stay in your career sector Virgo, giving you a welcome boost of drive and determination. Allow free rein to thoughts and ideas that come up for you, especially before your ruler Mercury goes retrograde on the 10th in your finance sector. With the Sun, and from the 5th Venus, in your own sign, this is the perfect month to embrace your individuality and show others just how talented you are. But this will require you to give permission to yourself to pursue your own needs. Why? Well, the retreating Saturn is squaring the planet of change, Uranus, and that part of you that can be sacrificing to others, may see moments of guilt or reflection. Any new hopes are unlikely to progress in a straight line, with challenges on the 10th, and also when Neptune can lower your vitality in week three. Keep the faith, as more tangible rewards and progress can become clearer by the month's end.
