(July 22 – August 22, ’19)
You have an active, communicative & mentally-stimulating month ahead of you! It’s the time to get back into circulation and reconnect with your grapevine, particularly around 7/27, 31 (New Moon) & 8/11. You’ll be busy exchanging ideas & information, taking some short jaunts and reconnecting with siblings, relatives & neighbors; consider participating in some networking activities to meet some new people. Avoid gossip, be sure you have all the facts and drive defensively on 7/29, 8/2-4, 14-15 (Full Moon) & 16; unpredictability is in the air, so be especially alert.
Mercury, your planet, is retrograde in CANCER as this solar month begins. Make sure your finances & expenditures are in balance, review your dietary regimen and recycle those things that you no longer need, use or enjoy. Mercury turns direct as August begins — and you’ll be moving forward, too. Once Mercury enters LEO on 8/11, you’ll be coming out of your shell and exuding increased self-confidence, vitality and charisma — the spotlight will be on you! After 8/17 (and for the upcoming 6 weeks), you’ll be putting much energy into strengthening your foundations, getting grounded and putting your domestic life in secure, comfortable condition.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS (on 5/15/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in your opposite sign, SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), partnerships and teamwork interactions could stimulate much personal growth. This will be the time to join forces rather than going it alone; be on the lookout for uplifting, knowledgeable and adventurous individuals who can expand your world. Sort for those who give you positive feedback and reinforcement — and who can make you laugh!
