(June 21 – July 22, ’18) **

It’s time to retreat behind the scenes and put your affairs in order – you’ll be tying up loose ends, taking care of details & clearing the decks (in preparation for your upcoming solar return).  Get rid of accumulated clutter, clean closets, organize files & set up systems.  You can be highly productive in work & health matters on 6/22, 7/5, 8 & 12 (New Moon).  Whatever needs to be healed, fixed or resolved will become quite evident on 6/23, 27 (Full Moon) & 7/11; let go of what’s no longer working for you!

With both Venus and the North Lunar Node in LEO as this solar month begins, it’s also a time for enhancing your appearance & self-image – perhaps a facial, new hairdo or photo?  You are most likely feeling charismatic, loved & appreciated, as others are very attracted to you these days.  Prior to 7/9, make an effort to balance your social activities with your need to get things done!  Once Mercury enters LEO on 6/28, focus on getting your act together and redefining your lifestyle.

Personal finances will be improving after 7/9, and especially on 7/11, 13 & 22.  Partnerships and teamwork efforts have been requiring lots of energy lately; review & re-evaluate your alignments to make sure you’re on the same page.  Free up from any one-on-one relationship that’s not based on equality & mutuality, particularly around 7/20.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re in the midst of a major metamorphosis in work and health matters since Pluto entered CAPRICORN (1/25/0811/19/24).  As this 16-year cycle unfolds, your work environment, as well as your relationship with co-workers, will be undergoing a transformative process.  Changes, rearrangements & upheavals can take place with procedures & personnel, as you are ready for new projects & directions.  You’ll be placing a higher premium on health, exercise and relaxation, and will experience a renewed spirituality, heightened psychic sensitivity – and a deeper desire to be of service to others.

Old patterns of handling business matters & partnerships, joint finances, legal contracts, parental obligations, debts & duties will be dissolving while Neptune transits PISCES (20122026) – hopefully being replaced with a healthier, more spiritually-oriented perspective.  Strive for clarity & accountability in all your alliances (get things in writing)!  Since you’re prone to being too trusting now, only align with those who are responsible and reliable − and have your best interests at heart.

With Uranus now in ARIES (20112019), you’re on a quest for cosmic understanding!  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be expanding your thinking, extending your boundaries and elevating your consciousness.  Higher education, travel, global affairs, foreign languages, philosophy, religion or sports may intrigue you more than usual.  Writing, publishing or promotional opportunities can arise unexpectedly.   You’ll find yourself relating to others in unique, spontaneous ways, and by joining forces with those of like-mind, you could undergo some rapid personal evolution!

Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15–11/6/18), you’ll begin to experience an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life.  As this new 7-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly moving into some different career directions.  Advanced technologies could play an important role in these new developments.

While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20),  you’ll have the practicality and discipline necessary for stabilizing work routines, restructuring personnel & procedures and implementing   sound technologies.  Be realistic in how you manage your time and strive for increased productivity − work smarter, not harder!  Make responsible choices when it comes to taking care of your health; any long-standing issues could be resolved during this cycle with patience & conscientious effort.   Stay committed to your emotional & physical well-being; set aside quality time for exercise, relaxation, meditation, spiritual growth and pets.  Eliminate any outgrown habits that are detrimental to total wellness!

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), you’re feeling inspired to expand your base of operations and increase your physical security, stability and comfort level.  The domestic side of your life can bring you much satisfaction and personal empowerment these days; home is where your heart is!  This is an ideal time to build, remodel, landscape, decorate, increase the size of your family, buy real estate or move to a larger place.  A foreign country may have special appeal!  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 ready to initiate new projects, hobbies, business ventures or romance.  A creative, enterprising spirit will be arising within you − take some risks, have fun and rejuvenate your life!

You’ll be highly charismatic between 5/9/17 and 11/6/18 while the North Lunar Node makes its 18-month transit through LEO.  It is your role is to bring sunshine into the lives of others, so shine on!!
