What do the planets have in store for you this winter? Our Astrology Expert Kelli Fox reveals all!
Winter is the time of year when we hibernate, snuggle up with loved ones and plan for the coming spring and beyond. While it may be colder and darker outside, this period of enforced slow down is a necessary part of nature’s cycle – but what do the planets have in store for you this winter? Read on to find out.
It’s romance all the way for you this winter, Aries. With Mars in your opposite sign until the end of July, passion is soaring – there’s plenty of heat to keep you warm. It promises to be a harmonious period for family relationships too, with Venus shining a benevolent light on this area of your chart.
Money is your main focus as winter kicks in, Taurus, with Venus encouraging you to spend more than you have. As winter progresses, this could cause conflict within a relationship, as Mars enters your opposite sign in late July, stirring up anger and disagreements. Try to reign in the spending!
This winter is a great time for a change of personal image. Once Venus enters your sign in late June, Gemini, you’ll want to ring the changes so that you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. If you’re single, Mars brings the promise of a new relationship this winter, especially in early July.
Venus encourages you to find comfort and peace from a spiritual source this winter, Cancer. Later in August, your focus will return to financial matters, but during the first half of winter you’ll be seeing things in a very different light. The New Moon in your own sign in late June highlights new spiritual beginnings too.
The big news for you this winter is the arrival of Jupiter into your sign in mid July, bringing a burst of enthusiasm, optimism and good fortune. A New Moon in Leo swiftly follows, helping you to make bright new plans for the future. Romance hots up too, as Venus arrives in Leo in mid August – you’ll be turning heads for sure.
You’ll spend this winter working hard to improve your status and standing, Virgo. Venus this winter is all about enjoying the good things in life, while Mars helps you put the energy and effort in to be able to afford this lifestyle. Late in August, a New Moon in Virgo boosts your confidence further and heralds innovative new ideas.
This winter is a great time for re-inventing yourself, Libra. Mars in your own sign during June and most of July brings you confidence, passion and verve – you can live by your wits during that period. Meanwhile, Venus encourages lots of travel and exploration, and perhaps even a move or an emigration. Exciting times ahead!
You’re asking some very deep questions throughout this winter, Scorpio, but you won’t necessarily find the answers you seek. Things will become a lot clearer and less frustrating once Mars enters your sign in late July. Venus also helps to lighten the atmosphere during August, when your focus will start to shift towards your career.
Healthy and loving relationships are your key to a happy winter this year, Sagittarius. Venus arrives in your sign early in winter, while Mars spends the first half of the winter filling in your diary and expanding your social contacts. It’s a busy but happy few months, but expect to feel a little more introspective as winter gives way to spring.
It’s certainly an ambitious start to the winter months for you, Capricorn, with Mars in the driving seat spurring you on to grater things at work. During July, Venus arrives in your opposite sign and slows the pace a little, allowing you more time for love and relaxation. Don’t forget your friendships, though – they need a little TLC too.
Your creativity is off the scale as winter gets underway. It’s a lovely time for arts, crafts or other hobbies, Aquarius, and your leisure time will be important to your emotional wellbeing. The Full Moon in your sign in mid August turns the focus back to your love life, as Venus courts your opposite sign and encourages romance.
This winter is a very good time to settle any outstanding family feuds, Pisces. Venus smoothes the way forwards and helps with harmonious communication, while Mars provides the impetus to seek a solution to any financial or property disputes among the extended family. It’s a time to build bridges and to enjoy one another’s company.
