LONG-TERM FORECAST: While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field. Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off in spades! During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attitudes or self-limiting beliefs. Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies. Clear the decks and put your life in order!
During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security. Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual. You’ll find yourself dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally. Stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments; a tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days. It could be a good time to see a nutritionist, check for food allergies or update your vitamin & supplement regime.While your ruling planet, Uranus, transits TAURUS (May ’18 through April ’26), you will get the urge now & then to change things up in home, family and property matters. Do whatever you can—in your own unique way—to create more comfort, stability & safety in your domestic scene. Free yourself up from whatever is holding you down or limiting your options, and explore alternative approaches in your living situation as this “7-year itch” plays itself out. Make time to connect with the natural world, start a garden or embark on a landscaping project. Get grounded, mellow out and smell the flowers!
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you will be focusing on making your life more efficient and productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’re being called to restructure your priorities, solidify your skills and complete old projects. Much of long-lasting value can be accomplished during this cycle, so get to work and eliminate whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life. Some serious self-analysis could be particularly useful during this period.
Saturn took its initial steps into AQUARIUS on 3/21/20, calling on you to assume a new level of personal responsibility, maturity and authority. Saturn’s retrograde back into CAPRICORN on 7/1 is challenging you to tie up any loose ends from the previous cycle to prepare for a significant restructuring of your self-image, appearance and lifestyle once it settles back into AQUARIUS on 12/16/20 (through 3/7/23). Self-respect and personal accountability will be taking top priority over the upcoming few years.
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN (since 12/2/19), you’ve likely been refocusing your attention on cleaning, sorting, filing and clearing out the clutter, along with old business. Put some positive efforts into perfecting your skills, re-evaluating your priorities and putting things in order throughout 2020. You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/07–1/5/09). Once Jupiter moves on to AQUARIUS on 12/19/20, you can look forward to a year ahead of exciting personal growth & expansion, with abundant opportunities for traveling, learning, teaching, writing, publishing or promoting your ideas. You’ll want to stretch your mind (& your legs) and extend your horizons. This will be your lucky year, so aim high and shoot for the stars!
