(April 20 – May 20, ’19)
Work & employment matters will occupy much of your attention this month; it’s the time to restructure procedures & personnel, create more steady work habits, and to form more comfortable, supportive bonds with co-workers. Much can be accomplished on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18. At the same time, devote special attention to personal health care, exercise, rest, spiritual reflection & pets. Whatever needs to be fixed, resolved or healed will be clearly revealed on 5/13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon). Stay hydrated and get caught up on your sleep!
With Jupiter—your planet—in SAGITTARIUS this year, you are experiencing a lucky, positive and expansive period in your life. You’re feeling your oats, for sure! Hold your horses as the Mars-Jupiter opposition (in GEMINI & SAGITTARIUS) builds to a peak on 5/5, however, as you’ll have a tendency to take on too much, overextend your energies or become overwhelmed with demands from others. Partnerships & teamwork interactions have been requiring more of your energy than usual since the end of March. Ask for the support you need on 4/27 & 5/1! You’ll be rechanneling your efforts into business, joint finances, insurance, tax or legal matters from 5/15 on.
Hobbies, projects, business ventures or romantic adventures could provide a pleasurable outlet for you once this solar month begins. You’re in a creative, enterprising mode, so be willing to take some risks and have fun! From 5/6 on, you’ll be refocusing your thoughts into the areas of work & health; strive for efficiency in getting the job done and be on the alert for some alternative approaches for dealing with whatever issues arrive on 5/8 & 18.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You will be undergoing a significant transformation in your personal finances, resources & value systems while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). New sources of income and investment opportunities will arise, opening up the possibility of increased abundance and prosperity. Since it’s likely that you’ll experience some intense peaks & valleys in your financial affairs during this 16-year cycle, it will be necessary to stay as realistic, grounded and debt-free as possible. Purge and recycle outworn possessions from your life to make way for the new. Your inner life will also be demanding nourishment, as emotional needs & self-worth issues will take on greater importance. This is also the time to re-evaluate your dietary patterns & investigate your nutritional requirements. Eliminate those eating habits, emotional dependencies & physical addictions that are detrimental to your well-being. Be sure to nurture yourself on all levels!
During Neptune’s transit of PISCES (2012–2026), a subtle yet significant shift in your base of operations is occurring. Old attitudes, habits, routines or attachments in your domestic life & family relationships will be dissolving, being replaced by a healthier lifestyle. You may be drawn to live near the ocean, in an ashram or within a spiritual community. You could develop an increased interest in feng shui, organic gardening, ecology or “saving the planet” activities.
With Uranus now in ARIES (2011-2019), you’ve begun an exciting cycle, marked by innovation, experimentation & creative self-expression. You possess the courage, will & vision to initiate a significant project, hobby or business during this 7-year cycle. If you can conceive it, you can achieve it! Take some risks, challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before & allow your inner child out to play. Enjoy some fun & romance, too!
Once Uranus takes its initial steps into TAURUS (5/15-11/6/18), you could experience some sudden changes in your work environment or with your job. New technologies could have quite an impact. It would also be a good time to explore alternatives in health care and release any habits that no longer serve you. Opportunities for volunteer work, spiritual development or taking in a pet could arise unexpectedly.
You’ll be restructuring the way that you deal with your basic needs and generating a more mature, responsible approach to money matters while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20). Take an honest, realistic look at your assets, as well as your liabilities. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, you can build up your personal security for the long-term. During this 3-year cycle, you’ll also want to re-evaluate your nutritional needs and dietary habits − and nurture yourself!
With Jupiter—your planet—now in its own home, SAGITTARIUS, you are embarking upon a very lucky, expansive cycle in your life. Express yourself and push yourself forward! It will be a year for extending your horizons, traveling, writing, teaching, publishing, promoting your ideas or starting up a new exercise regimen. You’ll be stretching yourself on all levels!
