2023: Second Quarter

Jupiter continues to move relatively rapidly through Aries, and into Taurus in mid-May, but will not reach conjunction with Uranus, currently also in that sign, until next year. Meanwhile this should encourage us to feel somewhat more confident about economic and financial issues. However, in late May/early June Mars, in Leo, is squared by Jupiter, warning against any reckless or extravagant undertakings, at whatever level! A harmonious aspect between Jupiter and Saturn throughout June helps to bring some balance and common sense.

A square between Mars and Uranus in late June is likely to feel frustrating and also to highlight any conflicts between one’s desires and one’s will, which tend to be at odds with this combination – probably a need at times to accept a very difficult or testing situation rather than waste energy fighting it.
