(October 23 – November 22, ’19)
It’s all about completion and closure this month. Roll up your sleeves and tackle those loose ends — put your life in order! With your solar return just around the corner, now’s the time to plan and prepare for the renewed energy ahead. Clean out the closets & drawers, sort, file and clear the deck; you could accomplish a lot on 10/23, 25, 27 (New Moon), 30, 11/2, 8-9, 11, 12-13 & 19-20. Resolve any issues in work or health matters, update your skills and redefine your priorities. With Mercury in retrograde from 10/31 to 11/20, it’s the ideal time to go back over the details, tidy up your desk and finish up old projects.
You can expect some delays & rearrangements with your plans and work schedule on 10/27-28, and some issues with co-workers, procedures or health could come to a head with the Full Moon on 11/12. It will become very clear as to what actions are required in order to get things under control. It would be wise to avoid financial dealings involving friends & social groups on 10/27-28 and 11/5; don’t let guilt trips or pressure from others to influence your decisions.
The presence of Venus in SAGITTARIUS, from 11/1 on, will add a sweet, harmonious tone to your life. Balance out your efforts with some party time this month (and look for ways to enhance your appearance & self-image at the same time)! Friendships, social gatherings, collaborative efforts and cultural activities could bring much pleasure & intellectual stimulation. Back off a bit, however, on 11/4 & 14; relationships could be somewhat bumpy around those days.
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—your planet—now in its own home, SAGITTARIUS, you are embarking upon a very lucky, expansive cycle in your life. Express yourself and push yourself forward! It will be a year for extending your horizons, traveling, writing, teaching, publishing, promoting your ideas or starting up a new exercise regimen. You’ll be stretching yourself on all levels!
