(February 19 – March 19, ’20)
Home is where your heart is this month! The domestic scene will be where most of the action takes place —snuggle up with family members, make your place more comfortable and fix things up around the house. This could be a good time to fulfill some fantasies of remodeling, decorating or putting in a garden; you may even consider installing a hot tub, fountain or water feature (particularly on 2/23 (New Moon), 2/25, 3/8 & 3/16). It could also be a good time to install a security system, but put this off and do your research while Mercury is retrograde (through 3/9). Also, if you’re considering buying or selling real estate, wait until Mercury goes direct before initiating any plans. Your professional or public responsibilities may need your attention around 3/9 (Full Moon), so take some time out from your household projects to take care of business.
With Jupiter—your planet—currently in CAPRICORN (and making a stimulating sextile to Neptune on 2/20), you are very capable of turning some long-term dreams into reality right now. You have the imagination, as well as the necessary discipline, to pull off something big! Take it easy on 2/23, 28 & 3/3, however; get your finances in order before jumping in with both feet. With 4 planets in CAPRICORN in your personal finance sector this year, you’ll want to be patient, practical and realistic in money matters; think long-term!
When Mercury briefly returns to AQUARIUS (3/4—15), you’ll want to get out of the house and back into circulation. Classes, networking activities, short trips or visits with neighbors & relatives could be especially interesting and intellectually-stimulating. From 3/4 on, you’ll be involved with improving your work environment and relationships with co-workers; change things up on 3/8! Any unresolved health issues can be comfortably & easily resolved during the month of March.
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 now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, it’s the year to restructure, solidify and take increased responsibility for your personal finances, emotional needs and dietary habits. Explore new sources of income & investment opportunities and uplift your prosperity consciousness! Educate yourself about nutrition & supplements, and nurture yourself on all levels! 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).
