(August 22 – September 22, ’17)

You’re in a restless, inquisitive mode this month – you’ll be buzzing about, exchanging ideas & information, networking, catching up on correspondence and reconnecting with your grapevine.  Classes, short trips and visits with relatives & neighbors can bring much mental stimulation, especially on 8/22, 26, 9/5, 9, 16, 20 & 22.  Keep your eyes on the road & be careful in your personal communications, however, on 9/4, 6 (Full Moon), 13 & 19); don’t let yourself get too scattered or overwhelmed by too much activity.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’re currently undergoing a major metamorphosis in your one-on-one relationships, now that Pluto is in your opposite sign, CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this 16-year cycle, creative, dynamic & intense individuals will be drawn into your life, demanding your attention, participation & commitment to shared objectives.  By joining forces, much can be accomplished!  Transformation, renewal, and perhaps major upheaval, can occur in existing partnerships – paving the way for a healthier interdependence and improved teamwork interaction. Strive for equality, mutual respect, responsible communication & self-realization (through the mirroring effect of relationships).

A more mystical, spiritual dimension is infusing your outlook on life while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026).  During this 14-year cycle, you’ll be on a quest for cosmic understanding! You could travel far and wide in your search for spiritual knowledge, enlightenment and optimal health.  You will be extending your boundaries, expanding your consciousness and exploring inner & outer space.  Take advantage of any opportunities for education, writing, publishing & marketing.  With Uranus now in ARIES (20112018), you’ll be experiencing an element of change & unpredictability in your public & professional life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities & possibly changing career directions.

While Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/1412/20/17), you’ll have the patience & discipline necessary for restructuring and stabilizing work routines, habit patterns, personnel & procedures.  Take equal responsibility for your emotional & physical well-being; set aside quality time for health care, exercise, relaxation & spiritual growth.  Pets can take on new importance now, too.

With Jupiter now in LIBRA (since 9/9/16), you can expect increased peace, harmony & beauty in your domestic scene! This is the ideal year to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape, buy real estate or move to a larger home.  There may even be a pleasant addition to your family.  Get involved with your community and dig your roots a little deeper!  Once Jupiter begins its new year-long cycle in SCORPIO on 10/10/17, you’ll be ready for new projects, hobbies or business ventures.  A creative spirit will be welling up within you − take some risks and have fun!
