(February 18 – March 20, ’18)

You’ll be cleaning out the closets, finishing up old projects and tying up your loose ends this month.  Following a month of lots of social activity, you’re ready to retreat and set aside some quality time to sort, set up systems, file & clear out the cobwebs.  Completion is the name of the game!  Although you’re much happier starting new things, keep in mind that the more of your backlog that you can clear out, the easier it will be to move ahead.  You can be particularly productive on 2/21, 25, 27-28, 3/1-2, 4, 11, 13 & 17.  Whatever needs to be fixed, resolved or healed will be seen clearly on 2/25, 28 & 3/1 (Full Moon).  Find ways of achieving improved rapport with employees or co-workers, as well as creating a more peaceful, functional working environment.

Once Mercury & Venus join Uranus in ARIES on 3/6, you’ll be raring to go!  Your thinking will become more creative & innovative, and your social life will begin to pick up speed again.  Re-define and clarify your self-image and make improvements to your appearance over the next few weeks. A total makeover could be in order. Any obstacles you encounter around 3/10 & 13 will only clarify the steps you need to take for making a giant leap forward.  You will feel like you’ve gotten your act together by 3/19 – a personal rejuvenation awaits you!

You’ve been on a personal quest since 1/26; the urge for travel, adventure and knowledge has been especially strong lately. Take advantage of any opportunity to take a seminar or workshop, catch up on your reading or visit a foreign country.  An unexpected opportunity to stretch your mind & legs will arise around 3/11 – go for the gusto!  From 3/17 on (for the next 2 months), you’ll be ready to take charge of your life ‒ re-channel your energy into actualizing your personal & professional objectives.  Set realistic goals, move forward with patience & determination, and go for what you want!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:   You are currently in the midst of a powerful transformation in both your personal & professional life while Pluto, your ruling planet, transits CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, new career directions will be emerging, as outgrown pathways either fall apart or reorganize to higher levels.  Increased opportunities for leadership & public visibility will also arise during this period, so take charge of your life, reclaim your personal power and stay in integrity.  You have the energy, courage & resources available to you now to accept new challenges, take some big risks and actualize your objectives. You also are experiencing a newly-found sense of self-discipline and commitment these days, which along with a little patience and follow-through, will serve you well in manifesting your desires.

With Neptune now in PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26), you’ll be researching alternative healing modalities, clearing out any psychological cobwebs and awakening to hidden talents & psychic abilities.  It’s the ideal time to update your skills, clean out the closets, get organized and make your life more functional.  You may find yourself working with those who share similar interests, dreams and spiritual values.

You’ve been experiencing some major life changes since Uranus entered ARIES (2011-2019).  It’s time to express your creativity & individuality – let your light shine in new & unique ways!  During this “7-year itch”, the desire for personal freedom is first & foremost.  You’re ready to do away with restrictions, rebel against restraints and eliminate outworn patterns of behavior – it’s time to lift the yoke!   You’ll be expressing greater originality and inventiveness, living more spontaneously and discovering new dimensions of yourself.  Get off the beaten path, explore alternative lifestyles and experiment with different forms of creative self-expression. Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS  (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be ready to make major changes in your personal finances, value systems & dietary habits.  Release old attachments & possessions — make way for the new!

Your personal & professional goals will undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/19/17–12/16/20); you could assume more responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience(!), discipline and conscientious effort.  During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — and you’re likely to get it!

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), it’s an opportune time to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values & ethical standards.  You could attract a mentor, business agent or financial backer during this cycle, and it could be a fortunate time to refinance, make a long-term investment or take out a loan.  You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/0511/23/06).

Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS on 11/7/18, you’ll experience a major uplift — get ready for take-off!  An expansive, adventurous spirit will stimulate numerous opportunities to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote your business & beliefs.  Stretch your legs and spread your wings!
