(October 22 – November 21, ’17) 

Finances, food & feelings are your top priorities this month.  It’s the time for creating more abundance in your life, especially on 10/24, 26-27, 11/9, 13, 16, 18 & 20-21.  You have the power to attract new sources of income and investment opportunities now (and over the upcoming 13 months).  Make a realistic assessment of your current resources, balance your checkbook and stock up on the necessities.  Think prosperously!

Be cautious in money matters, however, on 10/30, 11/2-3 (Full Moon), 11 &19; avoid signing contracts, making impulse buys or maxing out your credit cards.  Recycle outgrown possessions and make way for new ones.  Learn more about your nutritional needs and make sure you are getting the nourishment your body requires (and ease up on the sugar).  Nurture yourself on all levels!Related image

You’ve got an extra boost of energy & ambition with Mars in LIBRA this month; you’ll be feeling more feisty, self-expressive and assertive.  Push yourself out there!  Put energy into enhancing your self-image, appearance & lifestyle.  Self-improvement, beautification & socializing are highlighted while Venus – your planet – is in LIBRA.  Once Venus moves on to SCORPIO on November 7, your personal, financial & professional goals will take precedence.  Take control of your life, emotions — and your dietary habits. Fulfill your basic needs! You’ll be up for adventure, short trips & new contacts from 11/5 on – expand your horizons!  Change things up in your base of operations around 11/11.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

With Uranus in your opposite sign, ARIES (20112018), you’ll be freeing up from old patterns of relating to others – and eliminating any partnerships not based on equality or mutuality.  During this “7-year itch”, you’ll attract some unique, enlightened and unorthodox characters into your sphere.  Your relationships, which can be quite unpredictable these days, will provide a mirror for awakening to a higher level of self-awareness -– confront your shadow!

While Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17), you will become more mentally-disciplined, realistic & purposeful.  During this 3-year cycle, it’s the ideal time to apply yourself to some serious studies, writing, teaching or networking activities.  Avoid getting caught up in negative thinking and, instead, take responsibility for your thoughts and communications, as they will have more impact than usual!  Once Saturn moves on to CAPRICORN on 12/19/17,  you will be ready to assume more responsibility in home, family & property matters.

Personal finances can improve now that Jupiter has entered SCORPIO (on 10/10/17).  Explore new sources of income and investment opportunities — and open up to an increased prosperity consciousness.  Pay special attention to nutritional and dietary habits, and nurture yourself on all levels!
