(October 22 – November 21, ’17)

Your challenge this month (and for the year ahead) is to take responsible control of business matters, joint finances, taxes, mortgages, insurance or legal affairs.  It could be a good time to refinance, seek out advice from an attorney or financial advisor, incorporate, take out a loan or pay one off.  You could receive an inheritance or sign a significant contract.  With patience, discipline & follow-through, you can achieve long-term results, particularly on 10/24, 26-27, 11/9, 13, 16, 18 & 20-21.  Be cautious in money matters & financial dealings, however, on 10/30, 11/2-3 (Full Moon), 11 & 17; don’t take unnecessary risks, make impulsive purchases or ignore your personal needs.

Partnerships and teamwork interactions will be demanding your active participation this month; together, much can be accomplished.  Strive for harmony, mutuality & reciprocity, and don’t force any issues on 10/27, 11/3 or 19.  Consider setting travel, educational or promotional activities in motion from 11/5 on – things can easily fall into place on 11/11 & 17.  It’s the time to manifest those creative & innovative ideas you’ve been developing – a long-term project could easily get off the ground now.

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 (2011-2018).  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.  You will attract unusual individuals into your personal sphere who can have a major impact on your life!

Travel, education, writing, publishing, philosophy & religion, politics, international affairs & marketing will be taken more seriously while Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17).  You’ll be inspired to redefine your belief systems, restructure your modes of communication and practice what you preach.  It’s the time to solidify your understanding and develop greater trust in the universe!  Now that Jupiter has begun its new year-long cycle in SCORPIO (on 10/10/17), you’ll be ready to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values & ethical standards.
