(June 21 – July 22, ’18) **

You’re in your power this month!  You have the energy & ambition now to take on new challenges, set personal & professional goals & get on top of things, particularly on 6/22, 7/5, 8 & 12 (New Moon).  Make a special effort to control yourself in matters related to finances & food.  You may also experience greater public visibility and leadership opportunities as this month unfolds.  Strive for balance, however, between your public & private worlds on 6/23, 27 (Full Moon) & 7/11; make sure your base of operations, as well as your support systems, are solid and grounded.  With Venus, your planet, in LEO these days, you’ve been feeling vital, self-confident and sociable.  Let your light shine!  Once Venus moves on to VIRGO on 7/9, you’ll be motivated to tie up some loose ends, clear the decks and put your life in order.  Set aside time to finish up things, sort, file and redefine your priorities; you could be most productive on 7/11, 13 & 22.

After 6/28 (and for the next 2½ months), you’ll be focusing lots of attention on friendships & social alliances; it’s a time to cooperate & collaborate with those who have similar interests and intentions – much can be accomplished by joining up with like-minded individuals.  You’ve had lots of creative energy lately and have been inspired to initiate a new project, hobby, business or romance.  From 6/26 on, make it a point to review & re-evaluate where you’re headed; make any necessary changes around 7/20 to clarify your direction & desires.

** Link for next month’s forecast:

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

With Uranus in your opposite sign, ARIES (20112018), you’ll be freeing up from old patterns of relating to others – and eliminating any partnerships not based on equality or mutuality.  During this “7-year itch”, you’ll attract some unique, enlightened and unorthodox characters into your sphere.  Your relationships, which can be quite unpredictable these days, will provide a mirror for awakening to a higher level of self-awareness -– confront your shadow!

Once Uranus takes its first steps into TAURUS (5/15—11/6/18), you’ll begin to explore a different approach in the way you take care of business.  Financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

Personal finances will be on an upswing now that Jupiter is in SCORPIO (10/10/17–11/7/18).  Explore new sources of income and investment opportunities − uplift your prosperity consciousness!  Educate yourself about nutrition, research the value of healthy food & supplements and be vigilant with your dietary habits.  At the same time, get in touch with your emotional needs and nurture yourself in every way.  Utilize this cycle to elevate your sense of self-worth!  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 moves on to its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS on 11/8/18, you’ll be ready to get back into circulation, reconnect with your grapevine, communicate your truth and hit the road!  It will be a time for exchanging ideas and information, networking activities and increased contact with relatives and neighbors.
