(July 22 – August 22, ’19)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!  You’re running on solar power this month, with your ruler, the Sun, in your sign.  Let your light shine!  Your vitality & self-confidence will be high, and you could be especially charismatic, popular & impressive on 7/27, 31 (New Moon) & 8/11 – enjoy the attention!  Consider getting a facial, trying out a new hairdo or brightening up your wardrobe.Image result for sun rays

You may want to change up your appearance, self-image or lifestyle in some way on 7/29, 8/2-4 & 16; be proactive and take the initiative to do things differently (especially when it relates to your professional or public persona).  A partnership or teamwork situation will demand equal time around 8/14-15; avoid drama and strive for clarity & consensus in your one-on-one relationships.  Feedback from others could take you to a new level of personal awareness!

Prior to 8/11, some unfinished business will be calling your name.  Tie up any loose ends, complete old projects and put your life in order; consider cleaning the closets & drawers, sorting, filing and clearing the decks.  The more you get accomplished, the easier it will be to take advantage of the positive opportunities that arise on 7/25, 8/7-8, 11 & 21.  After 8/17 (and for the upcoming 6 weeks), put your financial affairs in good condition, stock up on necessities and re-evaluate your dietary regimen.  Nurture yourself and tend to your personal needs!

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 TAURUS (since 5/15/18), 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 SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to initiate new projects, hobbies, business ventures or romance.  A creative, enterprising spirit will be arising within you as this year unfolds — take some risks, have lots of fun and rejuvenate your life.  Do something you’ve never done before!
