(July 22 – August 22, ’19)

It’s party time!  You’ll be sharing pleasurable moments with friends, participating in group activities and getting involved in collaborative activities this month.  Don’t turn down any invitations to parties, performances or cultural events, particularly on 7/27, 31 (New Moon) & 8/11.  Take advantage of any opportunities to travel, learn things or connect with stimulating individuals that arise on 7/25, 8/7-8, 11 & 21.  Expand your horizons!  Strive for balance, however, between your social interactions & your personal projects on 8/14-15 (Full Moon); take time out to do your own thing and please yourself as much as you like to please others. 

With Venus, your planet, in CANCER as this solar month begins, tend to your emotional & financial well-being and set some personal goals & professional challenges.  Those in positions of power could open important doors for you on 7/24; it’s a good time to mix business with pleasure!  Your charisma will be high once Venus enters LEO on 7/27 — you’ll attract more attention than usual and find yourself in the center of the action.  Bask in it!

Avoid spontaneous financial or business dealings with friends on 7/29, 8/2-4 & 16; it could disturb your equilibrium and upset the apple cart.  After 8/17 (and for the next 6 weeks), you’ll want to take time out from socializing in order to get some work done.  This will be amplified when Venus moves on to VIRGO on 8/21; clean, sort, file and pare things down to their essentials.  Put your life in order!

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.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll be trying out different approaches in the way you take care of business.  During this 7-year cycle, financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.  Avoid surprises and seek legal counsel in business dealings & contracts.  You could receive an unexpected inheritance.

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.

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), 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, participating in networking activities and enjoying increased contact with relatives and neighbors.  Because your mind will be especially fertile, this would be a good year for any type of learning, teaching or writing.  Nurture your restless spirit and plan some road trips!
