1. The Sun squares Mars on the 7th but is in effect from the 1st through the 8th since Mars simultaneously aspects Uranus and Pluto. This dynamic gives those under its influence great determination, strong will power, and an intensely competitive drive. The downside is self-destructive and/or aggressive behavior, spontaneous eruptions, and angry or dangerous actions. Erratic, opinionated hotheads dominate at this time.

When my mom was dying, my siblings and I gathered to be with her in her final days. None of us knew anything about supporting someone in her transition out of this life into the next, but we were pretty sure we wanted to keep her at home, so we did. Ann gave us an incredible gift in those final days.
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As a therapeutic storyteller, “holding the space” for the story to emerge is a crucial part of the healing process. In this article—first published in her blog—writer and coach Heather Plett offers some wonderful insights and practical advice on how to “hold the space” for others and shares how she came to appreciate this quality during her mother’s final days.

From the 5th through 25th, re-think business plans and avoid signing any important contracts.

Looking out of his bedroom window, Little Spirit was transfixed watching the sycamore trees, whose branches were enthusiastically swaying back and forth.
"How does the tree move its branches like that?" he asked.
Without shifting her eyes towards the tree from the book Mature Spirit was reading him, she started to answer, "The tree is not moving the branches. It’s the wind..."

1. Mar activates the Uranus-Pluto square on the 6th and 10th. This highly volatile, dangerous aspect can be considered in effect from the 1st through 12th. In Libra, Mars promotes engaging social events, but watch out for accidents, unexpected developments, and rude, inconsiderate people. Tempers flare under these celestial conditions; one can't be too cautious when driving and shopping. Expect numerous incidents of violence to lead the news...
