(June 21 – July 22, ’18) **

Home is where your heart is this month!  Family, domestic and property matters are your main priorities, so slow down, mellow out and put your base of operations in secure, comfortable condition.  You may want to make repairs, build, remodel, decorate, landscape, start up a garden, buy real estate, refinance or make a significant move, especially on 6/22, 7/5, 8 & 12 (New Moon).  Get grounded and make sure that your support systems are solid.  Don’t ignore your professional goals and responsibilities, however, on 6/23, 27 (Full Moon) & 7/11; find a healthy balance between your public & private life

While you may feel a strong desire to get some personal projects off the ground, it would be a better use of your time to lay the foundations and prepare the way at this time (you’ll be ready to move forward from 7/22 on).  After 7/9, your work environment will become more pleasing and harmonious.  Put some thought into improving procedures, adding an employee or creating better rapport with co-workers on 7/11, 13 & 22.

You could keep your life running more smoothly by taking time for personal health care, exercise, relaxation & pets — and perhaps a vacation!  Friends & group activities are bringing you much mental stimulation these days; from 6/26 on, review and re-evaluate your alliances & social connections.  You may choose to make some changes in your alignments around 7/20 to create more harmony.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:   You are currently in the midst of a powerful transformation in both your personal & professional life while Pluto, your ruling planet, transits CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, new career directions will be emerging, as outgrown pathways either fall apart or reorganize to higher levels.  Increased opportunities for leadership & public visibility will also arise during this period, so take charge of your life, reclaim your personal power and stay in integrity.  You have the energy, courage & resources available to you now to accept new challenges, take some big risks and actualize your objectives. You also are experiencing a newly-found sense of self-discipline and commitment these days, which along with a little patience and follow-through, will serve you well in manifesting your desires.

With Neptune now in PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26), you’ll be researching alternative healing modalities, clearing out any psychological cobwebs and awakening to hidden talents & psychic abilities.  It’s the ideal time to update your skills, clean out the closets, get organized and make your life more functional.  You may find yourself working with those who share similar interests, dreams and spiritual values.

You’ve been experiencing some major life changes since Uranus entered ARIES (2011-2019).  It’s time to express your creativity & individuality – let your light shine in new & unique ways!  During this “7-year itch”, the desire for personal freedom is first & foremost.  You’re ready to do away with restrictions, rebel against restraints and eliminate outworn patterns of behavior – it’s time to lift the yoke!   You’ll be expressing greater originality and inventiveness, living more spontaneously and discovering new dimensions of yourself.  Get off the beaten path, explore alternative lifestyles and experiment with different forms of creative self-expression. Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS  (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be ready to make major changes in your personal finances, value systems & dietary habits.  Release old attachments & possessions — make way for the new!

Your personal & professional goals will undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/19/17–12/16/20); you could assume more responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience(!), discipline and conscientious effort.  During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — and you’re likely to get it!

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), it’s an opportune time to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values & ethical standards.  You could attract a mentor, business agent or financial backer during this cycle, and it could be a fortunate time to refinance, make a long-term investment or take out a loan.  You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/0511/23/06).

Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS on 11/7/18, you’ll experience a major uplift — get ready for take-off!  An expansive, adventurous spirit will stimulate numerous opportunities to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote your business & beliefs.  Stretch your legs and spread your wings!
