Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in your opposite sign, TAURUS (May ’18 to September ’25), you will begin to free up from outgrown patterns of relating to others.  It is the time to release any partnerships that are inhibiting your personal growth, and open your life to one-on-one relationships based on equality & mutual support.  You can expect some unusual, enlightened and progressive individuals to be entering your life!  If your relationship is a healthy, constructive and supportive one, you’ll be evolving to a higher level of togetherness.  If you haven’t been getting what you need, then this will be the time to open up the communication channels and confront the issues – or make a clean break and move on.  If you’re currently single, open yourself to the possibility of an equable & comfortable match—much personal growth can occur through the right alignment!

You will become more mentally-disciplined, realistic & purposeful while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/1712/16/20).   During this 3-year cycle, it’s the ideal time to apply yourself to some serious studies, writing, teaching or networking activities.  Avoid getting caught up in negative thinking and, instead, take responsibility for your thoughts and communications, as they will have more impact than usual.  With patience and committed efforts, you’ll be able to accomplish whatever you put your mind to!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you can look forward to greater personal prosperity and an improved sense of self-worth.  Explore new sources of income and investment opportunities.  Nutritional and dietary matters will take on increased significance — nurture yourself!
