(April 20 – May 20, ’19)

Family responsibilities, financial obligations or property matters could play a significant role in your life this month; joint finances, business partnerships, loans or debts, taxes, insurance or legal affairs could be handled expeditiously (and differently than in the past).  This is not a time to procrastinate!  Much can be accomplished on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18.  Use caution in business & financial transactions, however, on 5/13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon); it’s not a good idea to borrow or loan things at this time.  Protect your assets!

Venus, your planet, joins Mercury in ARIES as this solar month begins on 4/20; let your playful, creative side out and consider starting up a new hobby, project, business or romantic adventure.  Partnerships and teamwork interactions will be energized — join forces with others of like-mind.  Step back a bit on 4/30-5/2 & 6-7, as you could run into some temporary resistance, obstacles or lack of support.

Speak your truth and expand your horizons with the uplifting Venus-Jupiter trine on 5/9, but don’t force your perspective on others while the turbulent Venus-Pluto square is in effect on the same day.  On 5/15, Venus leaves ARIES and settles down in TAURUS; your family & domestic scene will take priority over the next 6 weeks.  Seek increased comfort, security and stability in all aspects of your life.  The scintillating Venus-Uranus conjunction on 5/18 could bring an unexpected social or romantic sparkle into your life — stay spontaneous and keep your options open!

 You’ll be feeling a strong urge to hit the road, extend your vistas and see the world since the end of March.  A potent intellectual stimulus is motivating you to stretch your mind, and opportunities to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote yourself can arise.  Hold your horses on 4/27, 5/1 & 5, however; don’t overextend yourself and be careful on the road.  From 5/15 on, and for the upcoming 6 weeks, you’ll be rechanneling your efforts into your professional & public life.  You’re coming into your power, so set clear goals and go after what you want!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

With Uranus in your opposite sign, ARIES (20112018), you’ll be freeing up from old patterns of relating to others – and eliminating any partnerships not based on equality or mutuality.  During this “7-year itch”, you’ll attract some unique, enlightened and unorthodox characters into your sphere.  Your relationships, which can be quite unpredictable these days, will provide a mirror for awakening to a higher level of self-awareness -– confront your shadow!

Once Uranus takes its first steps into TAURUS (5/15—11/6/18), you’ll begin to explore a different approach in the way you take care of business.  Financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to get back into circulation, reconnect with your grapevine, communicate your truth and hit the road!  It will be a time for exchanging ideas and information, participating in networking activities and enjoying increased contact with relatives and neighbors.  Because your mind will be especially fertile, this would be a good year for any type of learning, teaching or writing.  Nurture your restless spirit and plan some road trips!
