(August 22 – September 22, ’19)
Your outlook on life will be upbeat, optimistic & adventurous this month – it’s time to spread your wings and stretch your legs! Take advantage of any opportunities to extend your boundaries and lift any self-imposed restrictions — travel, learn, write, publish or promote yourself, particularly on 8/24, 26, 28-30 (New Moon), 9/1-3, 5-6, 8 & 13. Long-distance communications & visitors from afar could bring much stimulation, although you may feel a bit overwhelmed on 9/2, 4, 6-8, 10 & 12-13 (Full Moon). Slow down, take time to breathe and be especially cautious on the road on these days!
You’ll be refocusing some of your attention towards your professional & public life from 9/14 on; it’s the ideal time to revamp your priorities, redefine your goals and connect with those in positions of power. Mixing business with pleasure could open up some unexpected possibilities! Saturn, your planet, finally turns direct on 9/18 (after 4-½ months being in retrograde) — any personal frustrations or business obstacles you’ve been experiencing will begin to fade away. Make an honest assessment of what issues need to be resolved on 9/22 (due to the Mercury-Saturn square); clear the decks so you can move forward.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You are undergoing a powerful personal metamorphosis while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (since 1/25/08). As this 16-year cycle unfolds, you’ll be undergoing transformational forces bigger than you! Potent, creative energies are arising from within you, demanding a fundamental reorganization of your basic identity, appearance & self-expression. Periodic upheavals & eruptions can be expected, as you’re in a process of purging outworn aspects of your self-image & lifestyle. You’re in the midst of a rebirth of sorts, and a “renewed you” is emerging – revitalized, self-confidant & creative. This is the time for taking some risks, pioneering new concepts, starting up business ventures or enjoying romantic adventures. Encourage your inner child to come out and play!
With Neptune now drifting through PISCES (2012–2026), you’ll begin to experience a deepening psychic sensitivity & spirituality in your everyday life. During this 14-year cycle, you could develop an increasing interest in mysticism, meditation, psychedelics or telepathic communication, finding yourself more attuned to the subtle undercurrents of life. You will tend to feel more compassionate & connected with others, enjoying more intimate levels of rapport. You may also notice potent healing energy emanating from your hands. At the same time, you need to stay self-reflecting & conscious, as you can be subject to periods of confusion, self-deception, scattered thoughts, lack of focus and possible misunderstandings. Don’t just assume that others are on the same page – make sure the communication goes both ways! Put things in writing, keep your calendar current and do your best to manage your spaciness. A clean, organized environment can help clear your mind and provide a supportive space for imaginative thinking.
Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), a creative, innovative urge will begin to take you over. You’ll have the courage, resources and vision to get a new project, hobby, business venture or romance off the ground as this 7-year cycle unfolds. Take some well-considered risks and challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before! A world of fun awaits you!
While Saturn (your planet) transits its own sign, CAPRICORN (from 12/19/17 – 12/16/20, you are ready to assume a new level of personal responsibility, maturity & authority. During this 3-year cycle, you will have opportunities to further develop your innate managerial and organizational abilities. Your self-image, appearance and lifestyle will be undergoing a solid, yet significant, restructuring. This is the time to make some major commitments to your personal development and self-expression!
With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/17—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to refocus your attention on cleaning, sorting, filing and setting up systems. This will be the time to tie up some loose ends and complete old projects. Put some positive efforts into perfecting your skills, re-evaluating your priorities and putting your life, work and health in order. You are now preparing for a major cycle of personal growth and expansion once Jupiter enters CAPRICORN in December!
