(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
Emotional & material security takes top priority this month – put your personal finances on solid ground, make a realistic assessment of resources & expenditures, search out new sources of income and research some long-term investments. Take care of your basic needs and stock up on the necessities of life, particularly on 4/20, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. Nutritional & dietary habits could require more attention, too; think about changing things up or eliminating foods that aren’t good for you on 4/22, 5/8 & 18. Be careful, however, in financial dealings, contractual matters or credit card use, on 5/ 13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon) — look before you leap! This would be an ideal time to recycle outworn possessions to make way for the new.
With both Mercury & Venus in ARIES as this solar month begins, you’ll want to put some thought into tidying up your self-image & lifestyle, as well as improving your appearance and beautifying your personal environment. You’ll get a clear picture of what needs to be transformed & renewed on 5/1-2 & 6. Pluto—your ruling planet—begins its 5½-month retrograde in CAPRICORN on 4/24; this symbolizes a time for transforming and restructuring those aspects of your life in need of reorganization. Re-evaluate your personal & professional goals, paying special attention to business, financial, governmental or legal matters.
Since the end of March, you’ve been tantalized by a variety of stimulating activities, classes, networking opportunities or short trips. Relatives & neighbors may be playing a more prominent role than usual. Make sure your vehicle & phone are in good working condition! Take it easy on the road and be clear in your communications on 4/27, 5/1, 5 & 6. From 5/15 on, you’ll be rechanneling your energy into home, family & property matters; put your base of operations in solid, comfortable condition over the upcoming 6 weeks!
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 (2008–2024). 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 (2011-2019). 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. Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be ready to make major changes in your personal finances, value systems & dietary habits. Release old attachments & possessions — make way for the new!
Your personal & professional goals will undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/19/17–12/16/20); you could assume more responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field. Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience(!), discipline and conscientious effort. During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — and you’re likely to get it!
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/7/18—12/2/19), you’ll experience a major uplift— get ready for take-off! An expansive, adventurous spirit will stimulate numerous opportunities to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote your business & beliefs. Stretch your legs and spread your wings! Shoot for the stars!
