(November 22 – December 21, ’18)

A creative, courageous & enterprising spirit is emerging this month – you’re ready for a personal renewal & rejuvenation!  A new hobby or project could be initiated, particularly on 11/25, 27, 12/6-7 (New Moon), 12 & 20-21.  Life can be intense & even overwhelming now, but be willing to take some risks and go for the gusto!  Since the Sun (your ruler) is now in SAGITTARIUS, you will want to express yourself enthusiastically and expansively — you’re in a highly adventurous & explorative mode these days.  Look before you leap, however, on 11/22 (Full Moon), 26, 12/2 & 5; things may not be what they seem (especially in financial dealings with others).  And while Mercury is retrograde (12/6), you won’t want to officially start a business, sign any important contracts or make an impulsive investment.  Do your research before rushing into anything.Image result for sun rays

A variety of intellectually-stimulating activities have kept you busy and running around in lots of directions lately.  Short trips and visits with relatives & neighbors can add a lively note.  Stop to take a breath, however, on 11/28-30; be clear in your communications and cautious on the road.  From 12/1 on, your home, family and property matters will take on a new focus.  It’s a good time to make household repairs, update your security system or clean the carpets.  Bring more peace, harmony and beauty into your domestic life, especially on 12/16 & 21.  You could be very productive in taking care of business and dealing with joint finances, legal, insurance or tax matters on 11/27, 12/7 & 16.  Search out someone you can trust to guide you through this process.  And equally important, you’ll want to pay some serious attention to health care, exercise, rest, spirituality & pets.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re in the midst of a major metamorphosis in work and health matters since Pluto entered CAPRICORN (1/25/0811/19/24).  As this 16-year cycle unfolds, your work environment, as well as your relationship with co-workers, will be undergoing a transformative process.  Changes, rearrangements & upheavals can take place with procedures & personnel, as you are ready for new projects & directions.  You’ll be placing a higher premium on health, exercise and relaxation, and will experience a renewed spirituality, heightened psychic sensitivity – and a deeper desire to be of service to others.

Old patterns of handling business matters & partnerships, joint finances, legal contracts, parental obligations, debts & duties will be dissolving while Neptune transits PISCES (20122026) – hopefully being replaced with a healthier, more spiritually-oriented perspective.  Strive for clarity & accountability in all your alliances (get things in writing)!  Since you’re prone to being too trusting now, only align with those who are responsible and reliable − and have your best interests at heart.

With Uranus now in ARIES (20112019), you’re on a quest for cosmic understanding!  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be expanding your thinking, extending your boundaries and elevating your consciousness.  Higher education, travel, global affairs, foreign languages, philosophy, religion or sports may intrigue you more than usual.  Writing, publishing or promotional opportunities can arise unexpectedly.   You’ll find yourself relating to others in unique, spontaneous ways, and by joining forces with those of like-mind, you could undergo some rapid personal evolution!

Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15–11/6/18), you’ll begin to experience an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life.  As this new 7-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly moving into some different career directions.  Advanced technologies could play an important role in these new developments.

While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20),  you’ll have the practicality and discipline necessary for stabilizing work routines, restructuring personnel & procedures and implementing   sound technologies.  Be realistic in how you manage your time and strive for increased productivity − work smarter, not harder!  Make responsible choices when it comes to taking care of your health; any long-standing issues could be resolved during this cycle with patience & conscientious effort.   Stay committed to your emotional & physical well-being; set aside quality time for exercise, relaxation, meditation, spiritual growth and pets.  Eliminate any outgrown habits that are detrimental to total wellness!

With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), you’re feeling inspired to expand your base of operations and increase your physical security, stability and comfort level.  The domestic side of your life can bring you much satisfaction and personal empowerment these days; home is where your heart is!  This is an ideal time to build, remodel, landscape, decorate, increase the size of your family, buy real estate or move to a larger place.  A foreign country may have special appeal!  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 11/8/18, you’ll be ready to initiate new projects, hobbies, business ventures or romance.  A creative, enterprising spirit will be arising within you − take some risks, have fun and rejuvenate your life!

You’ll be highly charismatic between 5/9/17 and 11/6/18 while the North Lunar Node makes its 18-month transit through LEO.  It is your role is to bring sunshine into the lives of others, so shine on!!
