(August 22 – September 22, ’19)

You’ll start off this month with an urge to clean out the closets, sort, purge, put things in order and deal with any issues you’ve been putting off.  Close out the past year in preparation for your upcoming solar return — stop procrastinating and tie up those loose ends!  You can be very productive on 8/24, 26, 28-30 (New Moon), 9/1-3, 5-6, 8 & 13.  Some work or health matters may require special attention on 9/4, 7, 10 & 13 (Full Moon); confront whatever shows up that needs to be fixed, resolved or healed.  Don’t over-commit yourself on 9/2, 6, 8 & 12; otherwise, you’ll feel that you’re running off in all directions and could experience burn out!

Venus, your planet, is in VIRGO as this solar month begins; stay grounded, focus on practical matters and pay close attention to the small details.  Avoid being too critical of yourself or others.  Once Venus moves on to LIBRA (its own sign) on 9/14, life will become more harmonious & relaxed. Friendships, social activities and cultural events will bring you much joy & inspiration; join up with like-minded individuals who appreciate your charming company.  Beautify yourself and your immediate environment!  When it comes to domestic, family or property matters, you’ll be ready move things forward from 9/18 on.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a radical reorganization in your base of operations while Pluto transits the sign CAPRICORN (20082024); home, family and property matters will be undergoing some intense, possibly earthshaking, changes.  During this 16-year cycle, existing family relationships, support systems, creature comforts, habit patterns & established structures are likely to be uprooted, transformed & renewed.  You may feel a compelling urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, garden, buy real estate or make a major move.  This is a potent time for creating community and extended family, along with developing a stronger sense of inner security.  Let the transformation begin!!

Neptune settled into its new 14-year transit in its own sign, PISCES, on 2/3/12; in response to this, you will encounter a subtle, yet significant shift in employment and health-related matters.  Outgrown methods, routines and habits are dissolving, clearing the decks for more personally-rewarding work & optimal health.  Meditation, exercise, yoga, creative visualization, acupuncture, aromatherapy, herbs & natural healing modalities can be very beneficial now.  Since you may be subject to misdiagnosis, drug sensitivities, allergies, toxic reactions, psychosomatic ailments or sleep, hormone & immune imbalances during this period, stay especially attentive and attuned to your body’s needs.  You may be drawn to help those less fortunate than yourself.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll be trying out different approaches in the way you take care of business.  During this 7-year cycle, financial alignments with those who share the same values & ethics could provide you with new levels of freedom and comfort.  Avoid surprises and seek legal counsel in business dealings & contracts.  You could receive an unexpected inheritance.

You are currently in the process of restructuring, reorganizing and perhaps downsizing your base of operations while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20.  Home, family, property, community and environmental matters will require increased responsibility, commitment and disciplined efforts during this 3-year cycle.  Lay solid foundations and replace outworn structures with solid support systems; it could be a good time to build, remodel, landscape, make necessary repairs, refinance or make a long-term investment in real estate.

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), you’ll be ready to get back into circulation, reconnect with your grapevine, communicate your truth and hit the road!  It will be a time for exchanging ideas and information, participating in networking activities and enjoying increased contact with relatives and neighbors.  Because your mind will be especially fertile, this would be a good year for any type of learning, teaching or writing.  Nurture your restless spirit and plan some road trips!
