(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
You can look forward to a mentally-stimulating month ahead! It’s time to crawl out of your shell, get back into circulation, reconnect with your grapevine and catch up on emails & correspondence. Like a hummingbird, you’ll be flitting about all over the place! Restless and inquisitive, you may find yourself busy with classes, networking activities, short trips and visits with relatives & neighbors, especially on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. It could be appropriate now to upgrade your phone or get a new car (or at least make sure your current one is in good running condition)! Don’t get too scattered or distracted, however, on 5/13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon); be circumspect in your communications and pay close attention while on the road.
Make some time to get your personal finances balance & organized as this solar month begins; it can be a good time to stock up on necessities, treat yourself to something special and attract a new source of income. Take care of your own needs before tending to others, particularly on 4/30 -5/2 & 6; mixing friends & money around these days could bring about some stressful, frustrating situations. Think twice before ingesting any strange foods or substances!
With Neptune, your planet, in PISCES these days, you’ve been especially charismatic and generous with your time & energy. Be sure to take good care of your health and honor your needs for rest & relaxation, sleep & spiritual renewal. Spending time at the ocean, pool or hot tub, as well as getting a massage, could be beneficial, especially with the Sun-Neptune sextile (5/8) and the Mercury-Neptune sextile (5/18). Keep your wits about you on 4/27 (due to the spacey Mars-Neptune square); you could be more gullible & trusting than usual, so stay conscious of what’s going on around you.
You’ve been putting lots of effort into home, family or property matters since the end of March; it could be a good thing to get out of the house and put some positive energy into your professional or public life around 5/5. Keep things in balance! From 5/15 on (and for the next 6 weeks), a creative, entrepreneurial spirit will be emerging — you will be inspired to initiate a hobby, project, business venture or romance! Fun & pleasure awaits you!
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You can expect a major metamorphosis in your social life while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24). As this 16-year transit unfolds, you’ll be experiencing transformation & renewal in your friendships, alliances and group associations. Outgrown relationships will periodically be purged from your life, opening the door for more stimulating companionship & pleasurable pursuits. Intense, innovative and enterprising individuals will be showing up and stirring up new activities. Friends from your past may re-enter your life as well. Opportunities for becoming involved in joint ventures, cooperative efforts & business collaborations will arise. By aligning with those with whom you share common interests and ethics, many of your long-term hopes and wishes can be realized. Nurture your artistic, aesthetic side – add some culture and creativity to your life!
An enlightening 14-year cycle in underway as Neptune transits its own sign, PISCES (2/3/12–1/26/26). You will be perceiving the world through an increasingly sensitive, compassionate and imaginative perspective during this period. A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal identity and mode of self-expression will be taking place – a heightened spirituality & psychic awareness is now developing in your everyday life. Outgrown attitudes, limiting viewpoints and self-judgments will be dissolving, resulting in a healthier, happier you. Channel the natural escapism of this transit into positive avenues, like meditation, mysticism, music, dance, yoga, exercise, boating & fishing, photography, film-making, dream analysis, healing or pets.
Uranus is transiting ARIES (2011–2019), awakening you to alternative ways of handling your emotional & financial security. During this 7-year cycle you’re being challenged to uplift your prosperity consciousness, to liberate yourself from dependencies or addictions – and to make positive changes in dietary & nutritional matters. Nurture yourself on all levels! Be open to new sources of income or investment opportunities, and explore alternative resources — aim for self-sufficiency.
Once Uranus takes its first steps into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be ready for a breath of fresh air. Restless, inquisitive and mentally-alert, you’ll be open to brilliant flashes of insight, metaphysical concepts and enlightening ideas − expect many “ah-ha” moments ahead! Your mind will awaken to new concepts & perspectives, and your mode of communicating with others will shift in radical directions. You’ll be breaking loose from old thinking patterns, and stretching far beyond your current comfort zone. It’s a good time to adopt progressive technologies, learn a new language or upgrade your phone, computer or vehicle. Feeling at home on the road, you’ll be taking spontaneous trips and connecting with some unusual individuals as this new 7-year cycle unfolds.
You are in the process of restructuring your social alliances and activities while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20); it’s time to shed outgrown relationships and to solidify those friendships that are meaningful & productive. During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be drawn into collaborative projects and cooperative efforts with others who are committed to similar interests, values and visions. Much can be accomplished when you are aligned with responsible, dependable individuals, particularly those who are older or authorities in their profession. Great benefits can arise from mixing business with pleasure during this cycle!
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you can look forward to significant professional opportunity and advancement. You could assume a leadership role or experience increased public visibility. It’s your time to shine in the outer world — go for what you want!
