(August 22 – September 22, ’19)
Cooperative efforts, social activities & cultural events will keep you busy during this month — you’ll be sharing pleasurable moments with some of your favorite friends, particularly on 8/24, 26, 28-30 (New Moon), 9/1-3, 5-6, 8 & 13. This is the ideal time to mix business with pleasure; by joining up with those who share similar interests and objectives, much could be accomplished! Set aside time from your lively social calendar, however, to tend to your personal projects on 9/4, 7, 10 & 13 (Full Moon); don’t mix friends & finances on 9/2, 6, 8 & 12, as it could come at a high cost.
Mars, your planet, will be in VIRGO all month; with clear focus and careful planning, you can manifest your deepest desires, be highly productive and put your life in perfect order. Your friends can be a big help these days. Put some special effort into cleaning, sorting, filing and eliminating what no longer works for you. Restrain yourself from judging or criticizing others, as you’ll find they’re just reflecting something about yourself that you need to face.
Put some positive thoughts into your career, professional goals and public image through 8/28; after that, you’ll be thinking more about participation, collaboration and small group interactions. From 9/14 on, you’ll be refocusing some attention on work & health matters — enhance your skills, redefine priorities and get on top of things. Communications and personal connections will move forward in practical ways from 9/18 on; it may be time to upgrade your computer, phone or vehicle (but not on 9/22).
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 (12/20/17−12/16/20). 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!
