(June 21 – July 22, ’18) **

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!  The Sun is now in your sign and it’s your month to shine!  Crawl out of your shell and enjoy being the center of attention; your personal magnetism is at a real high, especially on 6/22, 7/5, 8 & 12 (New Moon).  Put some efforts into enhancing your appearance, self-image & lifestyle; it may be the time to brighten your wardrobe, get a facial or have a new photo taken.  A partnership could require clarification, change or transformation on 6/23, 27 (Full Moon) & 7/11; maintain your boundaries, make your feelings & needs known – and strive for mutual respect, trust and equality.

This is also a playful, creative period for you; some new projects will be moving forward from 7/10 onward.  Unusual & progressive individuals have been entering your life lately – enjoy the camaraderie!  Business matters, joint finances, insurance, taxes or legal matters are requiring some extra effort these days; from 6/26 on, you’ll want to go back over your agreements & responsibilities and re-evaluate your financial commitments.  Free up from whatever is no longer working for you, particularly around 7/20.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re currently undergoing a major metamorphosis in your one-on-one relationships, now that Pluto is in your opposite sign, CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, creative, dynamic & intense individuals will be drawn into your life, demanding your attention, participation & commitment to shared objectives.  By joining forces, much can be accomplished!  Transformation, renewal, and perhaps major upheaval, can occur in existing partnerships – paving the way for a healthier interdependence and improved teamwork interaction. Strive for equality, mutual respect, responsible communication and self-realization (through the mirroring effect of relationships).

A more mystical, spiritual dimension is infusing your outlook on life while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026).  During this 14-year cycle, you’ll be on a quest for cosmic understanding! You could travel far and wide in your search for spiritual knowledge, enlightenment and optimal health.  You will be extending your boundaries, expanding your consciousness and exploring inner and outer space.  Take advantage of any opportunities for education, writing, publishing & marketing.

With Uranus now in ARIES (20112019), you’ll be experiencing an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly changing career directions.  Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15 – 11/6/18), you can expect your social life to take on a more spontaneous & unconventional flavor — you’ll be joining up with some unique, unorthodox & revolutionary characters! Look for opportunities to participate in joint creative projects and collaborative efforts with those individuals who share your interests & ideals.

While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you’ll be restructuring the way you relate to others, clearing the decks of those who aren’t reliable or committed to your highest good, and creating space for productive partnerships and teamwork activities.  Accept nothing less than mutual respect, honest communication & accountability in your one-on-one interactions!  Make wise choices in your alliances, and only get involved with those whom you trust and can count on.  Mature, responsible individuals will be the ones who can provide the balance you require for your personal development and emotional well-being; a serious, long-term relationship could develop during this cycle!

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), a creative, enterprising spirit is welling up within you.  It’s the year for initiating new projects, hobbies or business ventures.  Romance may also be in the cards!  Take some risks, do things you’ve never done before and have some fun.  You’re ready for a major rejuvenation in your life − children could be a positive influence in your life, reminding you how to kick up your heels and play!  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 11/8/18, you’ll be redirecting your enthusiasm into work and health matters.  You’ll want to make your workplace a more positive, inspiring place to be.  It’s also an optimal year to upgrade your health; exercise, relaxation techniques, mediation and a spiritual practice could be especially beneficial to your well=being, along with pets.  You’ll be lucky in finding helpful doctors and healers if you need them.

On 11/6/18, the Lunar North Node will begin a new 18-month cycle in the sign CANCER.  You will find yourself in the forefront during this transit, attracting what you need and drawing others to you for your nurturing, caring nature.  During this fortunate cycle, you will have a knack for being at the right place at the right time!
