(August 22 – September 22, ’19)
The domestic scene will bring you down to earth this month – the focus is on home, family & property matters. You’ll have a strong urge to put your base(s) of operations in comfortable, secure condition. It could be time to remodel, redecorate, garden, clean out the garage & fix things up around the house, or to buy real estate, refinance or make a move. Much can be accomplished on 8/24, 26, 28-30 (New Moon), 9/1-3, 5-6, 8 & 13. Set aside time to tend to your professional or public responsibilities on 9/4, 7, 10 & 13 (Full Moon) and strive for a balance between your outer & inner worlds. Keep the communication channels open with your partner on 9/2, 6, 8, 12 & 21; don’t make mountains out of molehills and speak your truth!
Mercury—your ruling planet—is in LEO as this solar month begins. You’ll be feeling lively & charismatic when you’re out & about connecting with friends, relatives & neighbors. On 8/29, Mercury moves on to VIRGO and you’ll be shifting your attention to work and to projects that to be done around the house. Pull in those scattered energies and focus on the details.
Once Mercury enters LIBRA on 9/14, you’ll be ready for some social & creative activities; romance could be in the air, as Venus enters LIBRA the same day. From 9/18 on, business matters, loans, taxes & legal matters can be handled effectively; disciplined & conscientious efforts will pay off in spades. Be circumspect in money matters, however, on 9/22 due to the Mercury-Saturn square; caution and careful consideration is advised on that day.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in TAURUS (on 5/15/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in your opposite sign, SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), partnerships and teamwork interactions could stimulate much personal growth. This will be the time to join forces rather than going it alone; be on the lookout for uplifting, knowledgeable and adventurous individuals who can expand your world. Sort for those who give you positive feedback and reinforcement — and who can make you laugh!
