(September 23 – October 23, ’19)

The escape urge is strong now this month – channel it in constructive ways!  Set aside quality time for health care, exercise, rest, leisure & spiritual renewal, particularly from 9/28 (New Moon) on.  Put your body & psyche back in balance and treat yourself to some meditative time-out.  A vacation, retreat or visit to a spa could be very nurturing now, especially after 10/3. Your pets may require special attention this month; you may want to re-evaluate their diet or take them in for a check-up.  A volunteer opportunity may arise that could bring you great personal satisfaction.

Work & employment matters also demand your attention this month; it’s a good time to redesign procedures, improve work habits and find ways to increase cooperation & harmony with coworkers.  Whatever needs to be fixed or healed will be clearly seen on 9/25-27, 29-30, 10/6-7, 12, 13 (Full Moon), 14 & 21.

Your creativity could be stimulated by joining up with others who enjoy similar interests from 10/3 on, and once Venus—your planet—moves on to SCORPIO (your opposite sign) on 10/8, you’ll be ready to take on some new challenges.  Partnerships & teamwork efforts will energize you and provide the incentive you need to get in gear, as well as bring more sweetness & pleasure into your life (especially on 10/13-15 & 19-21).

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a renewed spirit of adventure, expansiveness and optimism while Pluto is in the sign CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this inspiring 16-year cycle, you’ll be exploring new territory, extending your vistas and communicating with others on a global scale – the world is your playground!  Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing & promotional matters will take top priority.  Your belief systems will undergo a transformational process, as you’ll be investigating higher levels of consciousness and seeking greater understanding of your place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Maintain a positive outlook, stay in integrity with yourself and your ideals, and – most of all – tell the truth!

While Neptune transits PISCES (2012-2026), a subtle shift is taking place within your social life.  During this 14-year cycle, outgrown friendships & alliances will be dissolving, making way for those who deeply share similar interests, ideals, visions & spiritual values. Expect some mystical, magical connections! You may find yourself participating more in music, art and cultural activities during this transit.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll begin to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’re being challenged to get off the beaten path, step out of your comfort zones and explore alternative approaches in living your life.  Do things differently!

Travel, education, writing, publishing, philosophy & religion, politics, international affairs & marketing will be taken more seriously while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20).  Foreign destinations may have a special appeal for you, as well as serious studies, perhaps involving different religions, cultures or languages.  You may choose to incorporate yoga, meditation, tai chi or acupuncture into your regimen.  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be inspired to re-evaluate your belief systems, restructure your modes of communication and practice what you preach.  It’s the time to solidify your understanding of the world and develop greater trust in the universe!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), it will be advantageous for you to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values and ethical standards.
