(April 20 – May 20, ’19)

Teamwork is the key to success this month; it’s time to join forces, combine energies and support one another in achieving mutual goals.  Together, much can be accomplished!  A new alliance could get off the ground on 4/20, 22, 5/4 (New Moon), 6, 8, 11, 13 & 15-18, and an existing partnership could undergo change or rearrangement on 4/22, 5/8, 13, 17 & 18 (Full Moon).  Aim for equality, mutuality & consensus in your one-on-one relationships.  Related image

Since the end of March, your planet—Mars—has been in restless GEMINI.  You’ve probably been on the go, taking classes, making new connections and taking short trips – variety is the spice of life!  Relatives & neighbors may have useful information to share with you these days.  You can cleverly expedite any business, joint financial, tax, insurance or contractual matters, although you need to be cautious in money matters on 4/27, 5/1 & 5.  Contain any scattered energies as the Mars-Jupiter opposition (in GEMINI & SAGITTARIUS) comes to a head on the 5th — protect yourself from burn-out, as you’ll have a tendency to get overextended around this time.  Once Mars begins its new 6-week cycle in CANCER on May 15, you’ll be rechanneling your efforts into travel, education, writing, publishing or promotional activities.  Adventure awaits you (maybe a river cruise?)!

You’ve been focused on work & health issues since 4/17; it can be a productive time to deal with procedures & personnel, as well as developing more efficient & harmonious ways to get the job done.  You may run into some temporary glitches on 5/1, 2 & 6, but they can be resolved quickly.  At the same time, you’ll want to take some time out for health care, exercise, relaxation and spiritual renewal.  If you have pets, you might want to focus on their needs, too.  From 5/15 on, you’ll feel more freed up and ready to engage more fully in partnership interactions!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re experiencing a mental metamorphosis these days!  A significant transformation will be taking place in ways you think, communicate and perceive the world while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (2008–2024).  Realizing that the world around you is changing rapidly, you will find yourself questioning conventional wisdom and challenging previously-held perspectives.  There are new rules for playing the game of life these days – and as usual, you’ll want to get on top of things.  Limiting beliefs, opinions & outlooks that no longer serve your personal growth are in a process of being purged during this 16-year cycle.  A wide variety of interests may grab your attention, particularly those that have practical application and can help to improve your financial situation.  Classes, networking activities, the Internet, local media, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors could become major sources of mental stimulation.

On 2/3/12, Neptune settled in to its own sign, PISCES, where it will stay for the upcoming 14 years. Your creativity will be reawakening during these upcoming years, expressing itself in inspired, imaginative & inventive ways.  A desire to start up a new hobby, project or business venture could fire up your fantasies; your love life could bring you the fulfillment of your wildest dreams.   Allow your inner child to come out to play – fun and pleasure await you!  Children may take on increased importance, showing you the way to renewal and joy!

Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in your opposite sign, TAURUS (May ’18 to September ’25), you will begin to free up from outgrown patterns of relating to others.  It is the time to release any partnerships that are inhibiting your personal growth, and open your life to one-on-one relationships based on equality & mutual support.  You can expect some unusual, enlightened and progressive individuals to be entering your life! you’ll be ready to take a new look at your partnership arrangement.  If your relationship a healthy, constructive and supportive one, you’ll be evolving to a higher level of togetherness.  If you haven’t been getting what you need, then this will be the time to open up the communication channels and confront the issues – or make a clean break and move on.  If you’re currently single, open yourself to the possibility of an equable & comfortable match—much personal growth can occur through the right alignment!

You will become more mentally-disciplined, realistic & purposeful while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/1712/16/20).   During this 3-year cycle, it’s the ideal time to apply yourself to some serious studies, writing, teaching or networking activities.  Avoid getting caught up in negative thinking and, instead, take responsibility for your thoughts and communications, as they will have more impact than usual.  With patience and committed efforts, you’ll be able to accomplish whatever you put your mind to!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you can look forward to greater personal prosperity and an improved sense of self-worth.  Explore new sources of income and investment opportunities.  Nutritional and dietary matters will take on increased significance — nurture yourself!
