(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
You’ll want to take some time out from your active social life, gather up your scattered pieces and put some consistent efforts into finishing some old business this month. Household projects may head the list — it’s a good time to clean out the closets, drawers or garage, particularly on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. Sort, put things where they belong and make any necessary repairs. Set up systems and look for more efficient ways to get the job done. Work & health matters may also require your attention now. The FULL MOON on 5/18 will clearly reveal what needs to be fixed, resolved or healed—clear the decks for your upcoming solar return next month!
Your planet, Mercury, has been in playful ARIES since 4/17; friendships, social activities and cultural events have been providing you with much fun & pleasure. With Venus also in ARIES as this month begins, it’s certainly the perfect time to collaborate and participate with those who share your interests – and who can add a creative dimension to your life! Exercise caution, however, in mixing friends & finances on 4/30-5/2, 6-7 & 9; avoid any type of loaning or borrowing, as it could ultimately damage a relationship. Once Mercury moves on to TAURUS on 5/6, you’ll feel a need to retreat from the social interactions in order to accomplish some important tasks.
You’re in the midst of a 6-week cycle of high energy & ambition while Mars transits GEMINI (since 3/31). Push yourself out there, express your ideas, and project a positive self-image — your personal power is at a real peak now! Back off a bit, however, on 4/27, 5/1 & 5; take others into consideration and don’t come on too strong, especially with political opinions. From 5/15 on (and for the next 6 weeks), you’ll be redirecting your efforts into creating more emotional & financial security in your personal life. This will be a time for searching out new sources of income, getting your expenditures under control and making some long-term investments.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
With Uranus in ARIES (2011–2019), your social life has been quite spontaneous & unpredictable; friends can enter or depart your life unexpectedly. You can expect to meet some unique, unorthodox & revolutionary characters during this 7-year cycle! Look for opportunities to participate in joint creative projects and collaborative efforts − join up with those who share your interests & ideals. Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in your opposite sign, SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), partnerships and teamwork interactions could stimulate much personal growth. This will be the time to join forces rather than going it alone; be on the lookout for uplifting, knowledgeable and adventurous individuals who can expand your world. Sort for those who give you positive feedback and reinforcement — and who can make you laugh!
