(October 22 – November 21, ’17) 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!! You’ll steal the show this month – the Sun’s in your sign & it’s your turn to shine (particularly on 10/24, 26-27, 11/9, 13, 16, 18 & 20-21)!  You are very charismatic now (and for the upcoming year) and will attract more attention than usual.  Express yourself, polish your appearance & improve your self-image, especially once Venus enters SCORPIO on 11/7.  Avoid power struggles in relationships and keep your ego in check, however, on 10/30, 11/2-3 (Full Moon), 11 &19.  Pay special attention to any feedback coming your way – increased self-awareness can be the result.  Image result for eagles

With your planet, Mars, in LIBRA this month, you’ll want to channel your energies into collaborative efforts, cultural activities and friendships & social alliances.  Tie up any loose ends and put your life into a peaceful, balanced state; now’s the time to plan & prepare for a dynamic, high-energy cycle coming up when Mars moves on to SCORPIO on December 9.

Some self-analysis could be highly beneficial while Mercury is in SCORPIO; once it moves on to SAGITTARIUS on 11/5, you’ll be putting much thought into making, spending and investing your money.  Raise your prosperity consciousness and think big – Jupiter is in SCORPIO for this next year, and you’re ready for major personal growth & expansion.  Travel, education, writing & publishing could be in your future!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re experiencing a mental metamorphosis these days!  A significant transformation will be taking place in ways you think, communicate and perceive the world while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (2008–2024).  Realizing that the world around you is changing rapidly, you will find yourself questioning conventional wisdom and challenging previously-held perspectives.  There are new rules for playing the game of life these days – and as usual, you’ll want to get on top of things.  Limiting beliefs, opinions & outlooks that no longer serve your personal growth are in a process of being purged during this 16-year cycle.  A wide variety of interests may grab your attention, particularly those that have practical application and can help to improve your financial situation.  Classes, networking activities, the Internet, local media, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors could become major sources of mental stimulation.

On 2/3/12, Neptune settled in to its own sign, PISCES, where it will stay for the upcoming 14 years. Your creativity will be reawakening during these upcoming years, expressing itself in inspired, imaginative & inventive ways.  A desire to start up a new hobby, project or business venture could fire up your fantasies; your love life could bring you the fulfillment of your wildest dreams.   Allow your inner child to come out to play – fun and pleasure await you!  Children may take on increased importance, showing you the way to renewal and joy!

With Uranus in ARIES these days (20112018), you’re ready to do things differently in your workplace.  It’s the time to free up from repetitive tasks and be on the lookout for progressive & pioneering approaches to getting the job done. Whether you’re implementing advanced technologies, upgrading your computer skills, software & equipment, or rearranging priorities, personnel & procedures, you’ll discover innovative ways to be of service to others.  Be open to new options & insights in dealing with your physical, emotional, mental & spiritual well-being.

You’ll be taking a more responsible approach to managing your financial and emotional needs while Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17).  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be taking stock of your personal resources, eliminating outgrown possessions, habits and attachments, restructuring your value systems and paying closer attention to nutrition and dietary habits.

You can look forward to a lucky, expansive period ahead now that  Jupiter has begun its 13-month cycle in SCORPIO (on 10/10).  It’s time to come out of hiding and allow yourself to be seen.  It will be a year for extending your horizons, traveling, writing, teaching and stretching yourself on all levels!  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).
