(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
It’s time to feather your nest! Home, family & property matters take precedence this month; you’ll want to stabilize your base of operations, put down some roots and create more comfort and security in your household. You may feel a potent urge to build, remodel, decorate, put in some trees, shrubs or flowers, start up a vegetable garden or fix things up around the home, particularly on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. A real estate purchase, sell or refinance is also a possibility now. Remember to come up for air now & then, however; don’t neglect your social, professional or public obligations on 5/13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon).
Now that Uranus—your ruling planet—has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS, your desire to have cozy domestic scene and a safe community could be stronger than ever. A solid support system can be a springboard for achieving greater personal freedom! Some surprises, changes or original ideas could arise with the Sun-Uranus conjunction on 4/22, the Mercury-Uranus conjunction (5/8) and the Venus Uranus conjunction (5/18) — enjoy the magic!
In addition to your household projects, you’ll likely be nosing around, taking some short trips and reconnecting with relatives & neighbors. Interesting conversations, new ideas and stimulating connections will bring a much-appreciated intellectual stimulus into your life. Be careful in your communications and on the road on 5/1-2 & 6, however. New projects, creative efforts or romantic adventures have been in the works since the end of March. Make sure you have the resources to move forward on 4/27, and take others into consideration on 5/5 — teamwork can provide positive insights and prevent burn-out! Work & health matters will be demanding your efforts from 5/15 on (and for the upcoming 6 weeks). LONG-TERM FORECAST: While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field. Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off! During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attachments or limitations. Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies. Clear the decks & put your life in order!
During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security. Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual. You’re in the process of dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally. A tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days; stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments.
Your ruling planet, Uranus, has been transiting ARIES since 2011). During this “7-year itch”, you’ll in the process of freeing up from any outmoded thinking patterns and awakening to progressive ideas, metaphysical concepts and advanced computer & communication technologies. Unusual contacts, spontaneous trips, flashes of insight & psychic understanding will be accelerating your mental & spiritual evolution. You’re in a highly creative, enterprising & risk-taking phase now, so get in gear to initiate new ideas, projects, romance or business ventures. Pioneer some new pathways! Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18 and then settles down there on 3/6/19 for the next 7 years), you’ll be ready to change things up in home, family and property matters. Free yourself up from whatever is holding you down, and explore alternative approaches to your living situation.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you will be focusing on making your life more efficient and productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’re being called to restructure your priorities, solidify your skills and complete old projects. Much of long-lasting value can be accomplished during this cycle, so get to work and clear the decks of whatever is no longer functional or meaningful in your life. Some serious self-analysis could be particularly useful during this period.
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), friendships and social alliances will be uplifting your spirits. Much personal growth could take place through cooperative efforts, collaborative projects and cultural activities. Join up with those who share your viewpoint & visions!
