(April 20 – May 20, ’19)

Personal & professional goals take precedence this month; sharpen your leadership skills, solidify your public image and take control of your life.  Follow through on your deepest desires and go for what you want — much could be achieved on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18.  Cultivate relationships with those in positions of power and strive for win/win outcomes.  Devote equal time to the domestic scene, however, around the FULL MOON on 5/18; home, family & property matters will pull you back to earth.  Image result for sun rays

With the Sun, your ruler, now in TAURUS, you’ll want to make sure that make sure your foundations are solid and supportive.  Spend some quality time in nature to keep you grounded!  The unpredictable Sun-Uranus conjunction on 4/22 could open your mind to a different way of seeing things, as well as clarify an existing relationship.  Travel, education, writing, publishing or marketing activities have been keeping you busy lately.  Hold off on implementing new plans or projects, however, on 4/30-5/2 & 6; you may experience some temporary obstacles regarding work or health matters.

You’ve been putting lots of energy into learning, exchanging ideas & information and connecting with friends since the end of March. Cooperative efforts, joint creative projects and social interactions have been adding much stimulation to your life. Don’t mix friends & finances around 4/27, though, and strive for a balance between your social life and your personal projects around 5/5.

From 5/15 on (for the next 6 weeks), you’ll feel a need to tidy things up and put your life in order.  It will be the time for redefining your priorities, perfecting your skills and clearing the decks.  You’re in preparation for an exciting, high-energy cycle once Mars enters LEO on 7/1.  You’ll be coming into your personal power then, so get yourself ready!!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re in the midst of a major metamorphosis in work and health matters since Pluto entered CAPRICORN (1/25/0811/19/24).  As this 16-year cycle unfolds, your work environment, as well as your relationship with co-workers, will be undergoing a transformative process.  Changes, rearrangements & upheavals can take place with procedures & personnel, as you are ready for new projects & directions.  You’ll be placing a higher premium on health, exercise and relaxation, and will experience a renewed spirituality, heightened psychic sensitivity – and a deeper desire to be of service to others.

Old patterns of handling business matters & partnerships, joint finances, legal contracts, parental obligations, debts & duties will be dissolving while Neptune transits PISCES (20122026) – hopefully being replaced with a healthier, more spiritually-oriented perspective.  Strive for clarity & accountability in all your alliances (get things in writing)!  Since you’re prone to being too trusting now, only align with those who are responsible and reliable − and have your best interests at heart.

With Uranus now in ARIES (20112019), you’re on a quest for cosmic understanding!  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be expanding your thinking, extending your boundaries and elevating your consciousness.  Higher education, travel, global affairs, foreign languages, philosophy, religion or sports may intrigue you more than usual.  Writing, publishing or promotional opportunities can arise unexpectedly.   You’ll find yourself relating to others in unique, spontaneous ways, and by joining forces with those of like-mind, you could undergo some rapid personal evolution!

Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15–11/6/18), you’ll begin to experience an element of change & unpredictability in your public and professional life.  As this new 7-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities and possibly moving into some different career directions.  Advanced technologies could play an important role in these new developments.

While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20),  you’ll have the practicality and discipline necessary for stabilizing work routines, restructuring personnel & procedures and implementing   sound technologies.  Be realistic in how you manage your time and strive for increased productivity − work smarter, not harder!  Make responsible choices when it comes to taking care of your health; any long-standing issues could be resolved during this cycle with patience & conscientious effort.   Stay committed to your emotional & physical well-being; set aside quality time for exercise, relaxation, meditation, spiritual growth and pets.  Eliminate any outgrown habits that are detrimental to total wellness!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to initiate new projects, hobbies, business ventures or romance.  A creative, enterprising spirit will be arising within you as this year unfolds — take some risks, have lots of fun and rejuvenate your life.  Do something you’ve never done before!
