(September 23 – October 23, ’19)
Completion is the name of the game this month! You’re in the midst of finishing old projects, clearing the decks & putting your life in order, particularly since Mars, your planet, has been in VIRGO for the past month. Particularly from 9/28 on, you’ll be focused on cleaning out drawers, cupboards & closets, setting up streamlined systems and updating your skills. Work & health & issues are requiring special attention (and perhaps some corrective action) on 9/25-27, 29-30, 10/6-7, 12-14 & 21. The Full Moon (on 10/13) will clearly reveal whatever needs to be fixed, resolved or healed!
Once Mars moves on to LIBRA on 10/3, you’ll be attracting more pleasure and leisure into your life. After all your hard work lately, you deserve to relax and enjoy yourself! Friendships, social activities, collaborative efforts and music, art & cultural events will take on new importance over the upcoming 6 weeks. Strive for more balance, peace & harmony in your approach to life.
Also on 10/3, Mercury begins a new 2-month cycle in SCORPIO – set clear objectives of what you’d like to accomplish, make lists and redefine your priorities. Once Venus joins Mercury in SCORPIO on 10/8, put some efforts into improving your self-image, enhancing your appearance and beautifying your personal environment (especially on 14-15 & 19-21). Personal finances could get a real boost on 9/24, 28 & 13.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’re experiencing a mental metamorphosis these days! A significant transformation will be taking place in ways you think, communicate and perceive the world while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (2008–2024). Realizing that the world around you is changing rapidly, you will find yourself questioning conventional wisdom and challenging previously-held perspectives. There are new rules for playing the game of life these days – and as usual, you’ll want to get on top of things. Limiting beliefs, opinions & outlooks that no longer serve your personal growth are in a process of being purged during this 16-year cycle. A wide variety of interests may grab your attention, particularly those that have practical application and can help to improve your financial situation. Classes, networking activities, the Internet, local media, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors could become major sources of mental stimulation.
On 2/3/12, Neptune settled in to its own sign, PISCES, where it will stay for the upcoming 14 years. Your creativity will be reawakening during these upcoming years, expressing itself in inspired, imaginative & inventive ways. A desire to start up a new hobby, project or business venture could fire up your fantasies; your love life could bring you the fulfillment of your wildest dreams. Allow your inner child to come out to play – fun and pleasure await you! Children may take on increased importance, showing you the way to renewal and joy!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in your opposite sign, TAURUS (May ’18 to September ’25), you will begin to free up from outgrown patterns of relating to others. It is the time to release any partnerships that are inhibiting your personal growth, and open your life to one-on-one relationships based on equality & mutual support. You can expect some unusual, enlightened and progressive individuals to be entering your life! If your relationship is a healthy, constructive and supportive one, you’ll be evolving to a higher level of togetherness. If you haven’t been getting what you need, then this will be the time to open up the communication channels and confront the issues – or make a clean break and move on. If you’re currently single, open yourself to the possibility of an equable & comfortable match—much personal growth can occur through the right alignment!
You will become more mentally-disciplined, realistic & purposeful while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20). During this 3-year cycle, it’s the ideal time to apply yourself to some serious studies, writing, teaching or networking activities. Avoid getting caught up in negative thinking and, instead, take responsibility for your thoughts and communications, as they will have more impact than usual. With patience and committed efforts, you’ll be able to accomplish whatever you put your mind to!
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you can look forward to greater personal prosperity and an improved sense of self-worth. Explore new sources of income and investment opportunities. Nutritional and dietary matters will take on increased significance — nurture yourself!
