(February 18 – March 20, ’18)
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. It would be a good time to remodel, decorate, landscape, install a security system or buy real estate, particularly on 2/21, 25, 27-28, 3/1-2, 4, 11, 13 & 17. You might consider installing a hot tub, fountain or water feature. Cleaning, sorting, filing and putting things in order could also give you lots of satisfaction. Don’t get so lost in household projects, however, that you ignore your professional or public agendas, especially on 2/25, 28 & 3/1 (Full Moon).
On 3/6, you’ll begin to experience a positive energy shift – and you’ll be ready to go into action! A creative, enterprising spirit will bubble up, inspiring you to get involved in a dynamic new project, hobby, business venture or love affair. It’s all about rejuvenation and renewal! This is a time for taking some risks, doing things you’ve never done before, and enjoying fun & games. Children could play a significant role, too – they can remind you what it feels like to be young & playful. Hold your horses on 3/10 & 13, however; look before you leap. It will all come together by 3/19.
You’ve been in an energetic, ambitious & assertive mode since 2/26, when Mars entered SAGITTARIUS. A stimulating travel, educational or marketing opportunity could show up on 2/19; there will be electricity in the air on 3/11 – you will attract some magic into your life! From 3/17 on (for the next 2 months), you’ll want to channel some energy into solidifying your financial situation. Be open to new sources of income or investment opportunities, stock up on necessities, and make a realistic assessment of your expenditures. Re-evaluate your nutritional & dietary habits, and nurture yourself!
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.
With Uranus now in ARIES (2011-2019), you’ve begun an exciting cycle, marked by innovation, experimentation & creative self-expression. You possess the courage, will & vision to initiate a significant project, hobby or business during this 7-year cycle. If you can conceive it, you can achieve it! Take some risks, challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before & allow your inner child out to play. Enjoy some fun & romance, too!
Once Uranus takes its initial steps into TAURUS (5/15-11/6/18), you could experience some sudden changes in your work environment or with your job. New technologies could have quite an impact. 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 − your planet − now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), you’ll be ready to work towards some significant goals, set up systems, and clear the decks in employment & health areas. You’ll be in the mood to take charge of your life, get things under control and put your life in order. By applying yourself, major achievements in your work could be realized during this cycle. You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/05 –11/23/06).
Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS (its own sign) on 11/8/18, you will enter into a very lucky, expansive cycle. It will be a year for extending your horizons, traveling, writing, teaching, publishing or promoting your ideas. You’ll be stretching yourself on all levels!
