(August 22 – September 22, ’17)

It’s time to take care of business – joint finances, partnerships, taxes, insurance & legal matters are major priorities this month.  Patience, discipline & responsible action (along with a desire to make adjustments & resolve old issues) will bring you long-term rewards, especially on 8/26, 9/5, 9, 16, 20 & 22.  Pay special attention to the details!  Think things through and don’t sign contracts or make financial commitments until after 9/5 (when Mercury turns direct).  Be cautious in financial & business matters on 9/4, 6 (Full Moon), 13 & 19 — protect your assets and avoid impetuous purchases!Related imageWith Uranus, your planet, in ARIES these days, your mind is exceptionally open to new ideas and brilliant insights.  You could make some stimulating contacts on 8/22, 9/2-3, 12, 15 & 17, which could inspire you to move forward into some creative endeavors — explore ways to partner with those who share your interests!  Travel, educational or marketing activities will begin to take shape on 8/27 and 9/11.


LONG-TERM FORECAST:  While Pluto moves through CAPRICORN (1/25/08–1/20/24), it’s the time for you to get down to business, clarify your life’s purpose, resolve old issues and develop an expertise in your particular field.  Patient, disciplined efforts will pay off!  During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be called upon to redefine your priorities, get back to the basics and confront & purge any outgrown habits, attachments or limitations.  Any form of self-analysis will accelerate your evolutionary progress, whether it’s with a professional counselor, self-help books, workshops or personal studies.  Clear the decks & put your life in order!

During Neptune’s 14-year stay in PISCES (2012-2026), you are in a process of developing a healthier approach to financial and emotional security.  Your personal values and priorities will undergo important changes as you’ll become less identified with the material aspects of the world and more interested in the spiritual.  You’re in the process of dissolving old survival attitudes, insecurities & attachments that have previously limited your freedom – financially, as well as emotionally.  A tendency towards self-deception or confusion in monetary matters, as well as dietary habits, requires vigilance these days; stay as conscious as possible in personal business affairs and investments.

Your ruling planet, Uranus, is currently transiting ARIES (20112018).  During this “7-year itch”, you’ll be freeing up from any outmoded thinking patterns and awakening to progressive ideas, metaphysical concepts and advanced computer & communication technologies.  Unusual contacts, spontaneous trips, flashes of insight & psychic understanding will be accelerating your mental & spiritual evolution.  You’re in a highly creative, enterprising & risk-taking phase now, so get in gear to initiate new ideas, projects & business ventures.  Pioneer some new pathways!

While Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17), you are in a process of restructuring your social alliances & activities, shedding outgrown relationships and solidifying those friendships that are meaningful & productive.  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be drawn into collaborative projects and cooperative efforts with those who are committed to similar interests and visions.  Much can be accomplished when you are aligned with the right individuals.

Since Jupiter began its year-long transit of LIBRA (starting on 9/9/16), you’ll want to expand your vistas: travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote yourself and your ideas.  It is an ideal cycle for learning a new language or exploring new philosophies of life.  Aim high and shoot for the stars!  When Jupiter moves on to SCORPIO on 10/10/17, you’ll be ready to take your personal goals and career to new heights.  Develop your leadership skills and get prepared for increased public visibility and professional success!
