(April 20 – May 20, ’19)

It’s partytime!  Social activities, joint creative projects and collaborative efforts will be keeping you busy – expect invitations to parties, concerts, plays and cultural activities.  Your friends can be a major source of comfort and stimulation this month, particularly on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18.  Join up with those who share your interests and pleasures.  Make time, however, for yourself around the Full Moon on 5/18; don’t neglect your personal projects.

You’re quite focused on your public or professional life as this solar month begins.  It’s time for new challenges, goals & projects.  It also could be to your advantage to mix business with pleasure, as well as to connect with those in positions of leadership!  Make sure that your partners are aligned with your objectives, especially on 4/30-5/2 & 6; look for ways to compromise rather than competing.  Keep the communication channels open and make sure you’re committed to the same things.

A variety of loose ends have been piling up lately – tie them up!  You’ll want to put some energy into cleaning, sorting, filing and clearing the decks; don’t overload yourself around 5/5 if you can help it.  You’ll be feeling more energetic, ambitious and sexy once Mars begins its new 6-week cycle in CANCER on 5/15.  Your personal power will be coming on strong, so push yourself out there, enjoy the attention and go after what you want!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re currently undergoing a major metamorphosis in your one-on-one relationships, now that Pluto is in your opposite sign, CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, creative, dynamic & intense individuals will be drawn into your life, demanding your attention, participation & commitment to shared objectives.  By joining forces, much can be accomplished!  Transformation, renewal, and perhaps major upheaval, can occur in existing partnerships – paving the way for a healthier interdependence and improved teamwork interaction. Strive for equality, mutual respect, responsible communication and self-realization (through the mirroring effect of relationships).

A more mystical, spiritual dimension is infusing your outlook on life while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026).  During this 14-year cycle, you’ll be on a quest for cosmic understanding! You could travel far and wide in your search for spiritual knowledge, enlightenment and optimal health.  You will be extending your boundaries, expanding your consciousness and exploring inner and outer space.  Take advantage of any opportunities for education, writing, publishing & marketing.

With Uranus now in ARIES (20112019), you’ll be experiencing an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly changing career directions.  Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15 – 11/6/18), you can expect your social life to take on a more spontaneous & unconventional flavor — you’ll be joining up with some unique, unorthodox & revolutionary characters! Look for opportunities to participate in joint creative projects and collaborative efforts with those individuals who share your interests & ideals.

While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you’ll be restructuring the way you relate to others, clearing the decks of those who aren’t reliable or committed to your highest good, and creating space for productive partnerships and teamwork activities.  Accept nothing less than mutual respect, honest communication & accountability in your one-on-one interactions!  Make wise choices in your alliances, and only get involved with those whom you trust and can count on.  Mature, responsible individuals will be the ones who can provide the balance you require for your personal development and emotional well-being; a serious, long-term relationship could develop during this cycle!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you’ll be redirecting your enthusiasm into work and health matters.  You’ll want to make your workplace a more positive, inspiring place to be.  It’s also an optimal year to upgrade your health; exercise, relaxation techniques, meditation and a spiritual practice could be especially beneficial to your well-being, along with pets.  You’ll be lucky in finding helpful doctors and healers if you need them.

On 11/6/18, the Lunar North Node began a new 18-month cycle in the sign CANCER.  You will find yourself in the forefront during this transit, attracting what you need and drawing others to you for your nurturing, caring nature.  During this fortunate cycle, you will have a knack for being at the right place at the right time!
