When Jupiter squares off with Pluto on the 4th, you learn a powerful lesson about pleasure. Let’s just say that your desires have matured since last fall when these squares first started. Your libido could finally chill out, or it could kick into high gear if you’ve been in a dry spell. Either way, the Aquarius lunar eclipse on the 7th dares you to do something adventurous. Just be careful once Mercury retrograde begins in your emotions zone on the 12th. You might catch feelings sooner than you expected.

The main event this month is the massive Leo solar eclipse on the 21st. It lights up your communication sector, propelling any big writing or artistic projects into the spotlight. The sun aligns with Mercury retrograde on the 26th, delivering a personal breakthrough that could inspire your next project, especially when Mercury moves back into your creative third house on the 31st. Last but not least, your best day of the month? Jupiter flirts with Saturn on the 27th, opening the door for a romance or friendship with staying power.
