The month begins with Mars moving into fire sign Sagittarius into your area of higher education and foreign travel, stimulating you to do more intellectual work than usual. You want to expand your mind and are much more creative. You desire to spread the beliefs and ideas that you feel are important to other people. It can be positive if you can positively influence people but try not to be too aggressive with your viewpoints nor forcefully try to change people, as this could backfire.

Look for things that open you up to new ways of seeing the world and developing your present mindset.
