( May 21 – June 20, ’19)

Financial considerations, personal security needs and dietary issues are uppermost in your mind this month.  Raise your prosperity consciousness!  Assess your expenditures, balance your checkbook, stock up on the basics and be alert for new sources of income or investment opportunities, especially on 5/21, 6/3 (New Moon) & 8.  Use caution in business, joint finances, tax or legal matters, however, on 5/29-30, 6/9-10, 13 & 17 (Full Moon).  Don’t overextend yourself or your resources, avoid loaning or borrowing and keep friends & finances apart.  This would be a good time to unload & recycle outgrown possessions — make way for the new!

With Venus—your planet—in TAURUS as this solar month begins, enjoy the company of your friends, take in some cultural activities and enhance your appearance & self-image, particularly on 5/30-31 & 6/2.  Once Venus moves on to GEMINI on 6/8, you’ll be thinking about ways to improve your personal resources.  Diversification is the key!  You’ll be feeling more restless than usual, so plan some weekend outings or mentally stimulating activities, especially on 5/22, 6/4, 7, 12-13, 15 & 18.  Don’t overextend or over-commit yourself, though, on 6/14, 16 & 19; take it easy and keep whatever you can to keep the stress down.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a renewed spirit of adventure, expansiveness and optimism while Pluto is in the sign CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this inspiring 16-year cycle, you’ll be exploring new territory, extending your vistas and communicating with others on a global scale – the world is your playground!  Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing & promotional matters will take top priority.  Your belief systems will undergo a transformational process, as you’ll be investigating higher levels of consciousness and seeking greater understanding of your place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Maintain a positive outlook, stay in integrity with yourself and your ideals, and – most of all – tell the truth!

While Neptune transits PISCES (2012-2026), a subtle shift is taking place within your social life.  During this 14-year cycle, outgrown friendships & alliances will be dissolving, making way for those who deeply share similar interests, ideals, visions & spiritual values. Expect some mystical, magical connections! You may find yourself participating more in music, art and cultural activities during this transit.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll begin to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’re being challenged to get off the beaten path, step out of your comfort zones and explore alternative approaches in living your life.  Do things differently!

Travel, education, writing, publishing, philosophy & religion, politics, international affairs & marketing will be taken more seriously while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20).  Foreign destinations may have a special appeal for you, as well as serious studies, perhaps involving different religions, cultures or languages.  You may choose to incorporate yoga, meditation, tai chi or acupuncture into your regimen.  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be inspired to re-evaluate your belief systems, restructure your modes of communication and practice what you preach.  It’s the time to solidify your understanding of the world and develop greater trust in the universe!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), it will be advantageous for you to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values and ethical standards.
