(September 23 – October 23, ’19)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!  You’re the belle of the ball this month – step into the spotlight & let your light shine!  You’re highly charismatic now that the Sun is in your sign — express yourself, enhance your appearance and polish your self-image, particularly from 9/28 (New Moon) on. You may want to treat yourself to a facial, personal makeover or new hairdo & wardrobe. With both Mercury & Venus (your planet) in LIBRA since 9/14, you are finding yourself in the midst of a sweet & lively social life.  Friends, cultural events and collaborative activities can bring you much pleasure these days.  Be sure to take your partner into consideration as the Full Moon on 10/13 builds up; strive for mutuality, fair play and equality in your one-on-one relationships. Pay attention to any feedback that comes your way, as it could increase your self-understanding.  Give some equal attention to your domestic scene this month, especially on 9/25-27, 29-30, 10/6-7, 12-14 & 21. Home, family & property matters will be requiring some disciplined attention and creative effort; stop procrastinating, roll up your sleeves and dig in!

You’ve been busy cleaning out the closets, sorting, filing & clearing the decks over the past month; this has been preparation for the powerful new cycle that begins on 10/3 when Mars enters LIBRA. You’ll have plenty of energy, assertiveness and ambition over the next 6 weeks to accomplish whatever you want — put yourself out there! Once Mercury moves on to SCORPIO on 10/3, followed by Venus on 10/8, you’ll be focused on getting personal finances, emotions and dietary habits under control.  Eliminate outworn possessions & make way for the new, especially on 10/14-15 & 19-21.  Plan a trip, educational experience or marketing program on 9/24, 28 & 10/13 — adventure and opportunities await you!

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!
