(July 22 – August 22, ’19)
A spirit of adventure is calling this month – it’s time to stretch your legs, spread your wings and extend your horizons. Travel, higher education, writing, publishing, religious/philosophical studies, marketing activities or sports can inspire you, particularly on 7/27, 31 (New Moon) & 8/11. Hold your horses on 8/14-15 (Full Moon), don’t take on more than you can realistically handle. Restrain yourself from political or philosophical arguments and be prepared for the unexpected (especially on the road), on 7/29, 8/2-4 & 16.
With Jupiter—your ruling planet—in SAGITTARIUS this year, you’re likely experiencing much personal growth & expansion. Some significant opportunities could arise this month as Jupiter trines Mars (7/25), the Sun (8/7), Venus (8/8) and Mercury (8/21). Go for the gusto! And for the icing on the cake, Jupiter turns direct (after a 4-month retrograde) on 8/11. You’re ready to move forward in a big way — express your viewpoints and aim for the stars!
After 8/17, you’ll be rechanneling your energy into actualizing your personal & professional goals. The power to accomplish your wildest dreams will be yours for the upcoming 6 weeks! Clarify your priorities, set clear objectives and take things step by step; plan carefully and pay close attention to the details.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You will be undergoing a significant transformation in your personal finances, resources & value systems while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). New sources of income and investment opportunities will arise, opening up the possibility of increased abundance and prosperity. Since it’s likely that you’ll experience some intense peaks & valleys in your financial affairs during this 16-year cycle, it will be necessary to stay as realistic, grounded and debt-free as possible. Purge and recycle outworn possessions from your life to make way for the new. Your inner life will also be demanding nourishment, as emotional needs & self-worth issues will take on greater importance. This is also the time to re-evaluate your dietary patterns & investigate your nutritional requirements. Eliminate those eating habits, emotional dependencies & physical addictions that are detrimental to your well-being. Be sure to nurture yourself on all levels!
During Neptune’s transit of PISCES (2012–2026), a subtle yet significant shift in your base of operations is occurring. Old attitudes, habits, routines or attachments in your domestic life & family relationships will be dissolving, being replaced by a healthier lifestyle. You may be drawn to live near the ocean, in an ashram or within a spiritual community. You could develop an increased interest in feng shui, organic gardening, ecology or “saving the planet” activities.
Once Uranus has taken its initial steps into TAURUS (5/15/18), you could experience some sudden changes in your work environment or with your job. New technologies could have quite an impact on your productivity over the upcoming 7-year cycle. It would also be a good time to explore alternatives in health care and release any habits that no longer serve you. Opportunities for volunteer work, spiritual development or taking in a pet could arise unexpectedly.
You’ll be restructuring the way that you deal with your basic needs and generating a more mature, responsible approach to money matters while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20). Take an honest, realistic look at your assets, as well as your liabilities. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, you can build up your personal security for the long-term. During this 3-year cycle, you’ll also want to re-evaluate your nutritional needs and dietary habits − and nurture yourself!
With Jupiter—your planet—now in its own home, SAGITTARIUS, you are embarking upon a very lucky, expansive cycle in your life. Express yourself and push yourself forward! It will be a year for extending your horizons, traveling, writing, teaching, publishing, promoting your ideas or starting up a new exercise regimen. You’ll be stretching yourself on all levels!
