(November 22 – December 21, ’18)

An adventurous, exuberant spirit will push you forward this month – expand your horizons and promote your vision!  Travel, sports, educational pursuits, writing, publishing and marketing ventures are highlighted (especially on 11/25, 27, 12/6-7 (New Moon), 12 & 20-21).  Stretch your legs as well as your mind!  You may experience increased contact with individuals of different nationalities, belief systems, cultures and customs.  Long-distance communications and visitors from afar could also add a lively note.  Rein yourself in, however, on 11/22 (Full Moon), 26, 12/2 & 5; avoid over-committing or rushing off in too many directions — and stay particularly conscious while on the road.

Utilize the Mercury retrograde period (through 12/6) to catch up with your reading, edit any writing or promotional projects, or get back to the gym.  Between 12/1 & 12, however, there may be some business, legal, insurance or tax matters that could require some conscientious attention.  You could easily expedite these issues on 12/16 & 21.  Partnerships and teamwork interactions have sweetened up your life lately; you may need to approach these relationships in a different way between 11/28 & 30, however; strive for balance, equality & mutuality.  Attempt to see things from the other’s point of view and quickly diffuse any tensions that may arise.  You’ve got some important loose ends to tie up through the end of the year; focus on cleaning, sorting, filing or clearing the decks.  Much can be accomplished on 11/27, 12/7 & 16.  Put your life in order and prepare for a creative, high-energy cycle that will begin once Mars enters ARIES on New Year’s Eve.

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!
