(August 22 – September 22, ’17)
This is the month to take control of your life, clarify your personal & professional objectives and go after what you want (particularly on 8/26, 9/5, 9, 16, 20 & 22). You could assume a leadership role or experience increased public visibility over the next few weeks; handle this power with wisdom and strive for win-win situations. Take some time out, however, to direct some attention into your domestic scene on 9/4, 6 (Full Moon), 13 & 19 – make sure your foundations, finances and support systems are solid.You’ll want to review & redefine your priorities during Mercury’s retrograde (through 9/4). From 9/5 on, and for the following 6 weeks, you’ll have the energy and ambition to move forward and achieve your goals. At the same time, follow through on any travel, educational or promotional opportunities, especially on 9/2-3, 12, 14-15 & 17. Friendships & social activities have most likely enhanced your life this past year with Jupiter, your planet, transiting LIBRA; you could experience some long-term results from these associations on 8/27 and 9/11.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You will be undergoing a significant transformation in your personal finances, resources & value systems while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). New sources of income and investment opportunities will arise, opening up the possibility of increased abundance and prosperity. Since it’s likely that you’ll experience some intense peaks & valleys in your financial affairs during this 16-year cycle, it will be necessary to stay as realistic, grounded and debt-free as possible. Purge and recycle outworn possessions from your life to make way for the new. Your inner life will also be demanding nourishment, as emotional needs & self-worth issues will take on greater importance. This is also the time to re-evaluate your dietary patterns & investigate your nutritional requirements. Eliminate those eating habits, emotional dependencies & physical addictions that are detrimental to your well-being. Be sure to nurture yourself on all levels!
During Neptune’s transit of PISCES (2012–2026), a subtle yet significant shift in your base of operations is occurring. Old attitudes, habits, routines or attachments in your domestic life & family relationships will be dissolving, being replaced by a healthier lifestyle. You may be drawn to live near the ocean, in an ashram or within a spiritual community. You could develop an increased interest in feng shui, organic gardening, ecology or “saving the planet” activities.
With Uranus now in ARIES (2011-2018), you’ve begun an exciting cycle, marked by innovation, experimentation & creative self-expression. You possess the courage, will & vision to initiate a significant project, hobby or business during this 7-year cycle. If you can conceive it, you can achieve it! Take some risks, challenge yourself to do things you’ve never done before & allow your inner child out to play. Your future includes fun, pleasure & romance!!
You’ll be taking yourself more seriously (and so will others) while Saturn transits SAGITTARIUS (12/23/14–12/20/17). It’s time to assume a new level of personal authority, responsibility, maturity and self-respect. During this 3-year cycle, you’re in a process of restructuring and solidifying your self-image, appearance, lifestyle and personal objectives. With Jupiter − your planet − now in LIBRA (since 9/9/16), friendships and social activities will brighten and uplift your life! It will be to your benefit to join up with those who share similar interests and perspectives on life; personal growth comes through cooperative efforts and collaborative projects. Life can be sweet & harmonious this year! Once Jupiter moves on to SCORPIO on 10/10/17, you’ll be ready to work towards some significant goals, set up systems, and clear the decks in employment & health areas.
