(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
It’s time for a personal renewal! A creative, enterprising spirit is arising within you — and the seed of new hobby, project, business or romance is taking root. Be daring, take some risks and let your inner child out to play, especially on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. Consider doing something you’ve never done before! Look before you leap, don’t force any issues, and take others into consideration, however, around 5/5 (Full Moon). Your new ventures will go more smoothly with some input from others.
Home, family and property matters will also be in sharp focus this month. It’s a good time to beautify your base of operations, make any necessary repairs and catch up with your spring cleaning! Peace & harmony can reign within the family this month – enjoy the sweetness! Don’t be surprised if you bump into some temporary obstacles or delays on 5/1-2 & 6; much can be accomplished on 5/11 & 16.
Saturn, your planet, begins its 4½-month retrograde in CAPRICORN on 4/29, requiring you to go back over things, make an honest reassessment of your life, face the realities and solidify your long-term commitments & intentions. On 4/30, Saturn also makes a conjunction to the South Lunar Node, an aspect that has likely been sapping your energy over the past few weeks. While you may have been feeling tired, old, drained or depressed, you are now being challenged to let go of the past, resolve some old karmic issues and clear the decks for a major leap forward!
Work and health issues have been demanding your efforts since the end of March. Take some time out on 4/27, 5/1 & 5 — look for shortcuts and efficient uses of your time so you don’t burn out! From 5/15 on (for the next 6 weeks), you’ll be redirecting your efforts into partnership and teamwork activities. When aligned with energetic & ambitious individuals who want to accomplish the same things, you can come into your full power!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You are undergoing a powerful personal metamorphosis while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (since 1/25/08). As this 16-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be undergoing transformational forces bigger than you! Potent, creative energies are arising from within you, demanding a fundamental reorganization of your basic identity, appearance & self-expression. Periodic upheavals & eruptions can be expected, as you’re in a process of purging outworn aspects of your self-image & lifestyle. You’re in the midst of a rebirth of sorts, and a “renewed you” is emerging – revitalized, self-confidant & creative. This is the time for taking some risks, pioneering new concepts, starting up business ventures or enjoying romantic adventures. Encourage your inner child to come out and play!
With Neptune now drifting through PISCES (2012–2026), you’ll begin to experience a deepening psychic sensitivity & spirituality in your everyday life. During this 14-year cycle, you could develop an increasing interest in mysticism, meditation, psychedelics or telepathic communication, finding yourself more attuned to the subtle undercurrents of life. You will tend to feel more compassionate & connected with others, enjoying more intimate levels of rapport. You may also notice potent healing energy emanating from your hands. At the same time, you need to stay self-reflecting & conscious, as you can be subject to periods of confusion, self-deception, scattered thoughts, lack of focus and possible misunderstandings. Don’t just assume that others are on the same page – make sure the communication goes both ways! Put things in writing, keep your calendar current and do your best to manage your spaciness. A clean, organized environment can help clear your mind and provide a supportive space for imaginative thinking.
During Uranus’ transit of ARIES (2011–2019), you are likely to experience periods of change, unpredictability or rearrangement in the domestic side of your life. As part of this process, you’ll be freeing up from outgrown routines, structures and support systems. Expect the unexpected when it comes to home, family & property matters; you may build, remodel, landscape, buy real estate or move your base to a new location. During this ‘7-year itch”, you’ll realize that your true sense of security comes from within.
Once Uranus leaves ARIES and makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), a creative, innovative urge will begin to take you over. You’ll have the courage, willingness and vision to get a new project, hobby, business venture or romance off the ground. Take some well-considered risks and challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before! A world of fun awaits you!
While Saturn (your planet) transits its own sign, CAPRICORN (from 12/19/17 – 12/16/20, you are ready to assume a new level of personal responsibility, maturity & authority. During this 3-year cycle, you will have opportunities to further develop your innate managerial and organizational abilities. Your self-image, appearance and lifestyle will be undergoing a solid, yet significant, restructuring. This is the time to make some major commitments to your personal development and self-expression!
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/17—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to refocus your attention on cleaning, sorting, filing and setting up systems. This will be the time to tie up some loose ends and complete old projects. Put some positive efforts into perfecting your skills, re-evaluating your priorities and putting your life, work and health in order. You are now preparing for a major cycle of personal growth and expansion once Jupiter enters CAPRICORN in December!
