(June 21 – July 22, ’18) **
Create some space in your life now for reflection, meditation & retreat; some positive escapism will take off the edge! Tend to your body’s needs for health care, exercise, relaxation & sleep; a vacation may be in order! At the same time, explore caring ways to improve job satisfaction, personnel & procedures, especially on 6/22, 7/5, 8 & 12 (New Moon). Some stress or tension could come to the surface on 6/23, 27 (Full Moon) & 7/11; whatever needs to be fixed, resolved or healed will become quite clear. Confront any issues head on so that you can get on with your life.
With Mars in AQUARIUS for the next 2 months, you’ll continue feeling assertive, ambitious & energized – you’re in your power these days! Once Mars turns retrograde on 6/26, it would be to your benefit to review your mode of operation, self-image and lifestyle – take control of yourself, not others. Rein yourself in around 7/20 and strive for equality & mutuality in your one-on-one interactions.
Partnerships are highlighted this month; show appreciation for what’s working well and make an effort to correct or clarify what’s not, especially on 6/20, 7/5, 9, 12 & 16. Joint finances, business matters, loans or refinances, taxes, insurance & legal issues can be dealt with easily after 7/9, especially on 7/11, 13 & 22. Some real magic could show up for you on 7/11 —keep your options open!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field. Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off! During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attachments or limitations. Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies. Clear the decks & put your life in order!
During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security. Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual. You’re in the process of dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally. A tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days; stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, is currently transiting ARIES (2011–2019). During this “7-year itch”, you’ll be freeing up from any outmoded thinking patterns and awakening to progressive ideas, metaphysical concepts and advanced computer & communication technologies. Unusual contacts, spontaneous trips, flashes of insight & psychic understanding will be accelerating your mental & spiritual evolution. You’re in a highly creative, enterprising & risk-taking phase now, so get in gear to initiate new ideas, projects, romance or business ventures. Pioneer some new pathways! Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be ready to change things up in home, family and property matters. Free yourself up from whatever is holding you down, and explore alternative approaches to your living situation.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you will be focusing on making your life more efficient and productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’re being called to restructure your priorities, solidify your skills and complete old projects. Much of long-lasting value can be accomplished during this cycle, so get to work and clear the decks of whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life. Some serious self-analysis could be particularly useful during this period.
With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17-11/7/18), it’s time to take your personal & professional goals to new heights. You can look forward to career opportunities and advancement, so develop your leadership skills and get prepared for increased public visibility and professional success! You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/05 –11/23/06).
Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS on 11/8/18, friendships and social alliances will be uplifting your spirits. Much personal growth could take place through cooperative efforts, collaborative projects and cultural activities. Join up with those who share your viewpoint & visions!
