" ["august"]=> string(3758) "

This is an important month for your personal growth and improving your relationships. If you were born February 2nd - 6th, of any year, you’ll likely feel an emotional shift around the August 7th Lunar Eclipse. A loved one could offer you the perspective you need, but you’ll need to be receptive to their point of view. Keep an open mind about unconventional ideas.

The Leo Sun shines in your 7th house of romance and creativity through August 21st. Enjoy recreational activities with loved ones. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 8th house of intimacy and shared resources. Use the remaining days of August to organize your finances. It will be especially good timing to pay or collect debts.

This month’s astrology promotes romance and having fun! If single, you could meet someone special, but because Mercury is retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, it isn’t advisable to commit to a new relationship. Don’t let that stop you from socializing and enjoying the company of others, however. Once Mercury is direct next month, you’ll be able to see your relationships more clearly.

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which encourages wrapping up unfinished business. You may be focused on financial planning. It won’t be good timing to make new investments. Instead, you’ll be supported in efforts to make the most of your current resources. It might be time to give away or sell items you are no longer using.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, your mind may feel busier than usual. Uranus is your ruling planet, making you more sensitive to its effects. This month, you could feel the need to advocate for yourself. You may be feeling angry, especially if you’ve been avoiding a confrontation. Do your best to keep your cool and consider your words carefully. The current astrology will help you to practice standing up for yourself and feeling more empowered, but you’ll need to employ diplomacy for best results.

In the coming months, you may also be inspired to champion for “the underdog.” Explore innovative problem solving methods, but avoid taking drastic action over the next few months. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you could be ready to advocate for others on a larger scale.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th activates your 7th house of partnership, as well as your 1st house of self. During the days around this Eclipse, your attention could be focused on a partnership from the past or present. This time period serves as a check-in for anything you began thinking about during the Eclipses that occurred in February of this year. Since then, you’ve been learning how to balance your needs with those of others. Remember that Eclipses heighten the sense of drama in the atmosphere. If you feel overly emotional, wait until a few days after the Eclipse has passed to discuss emotionally charged topics.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to romantic relationships, platonic friendships, or business partnerships. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on resolving the past. You may consider renegotiating an existing partnership or agreement. Avoid entering new partnerships or contracts now, even though you may feel the need for a fresh start. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be supported to initiate new relationships.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3715) "

You may be feeling introverted this month, Aquarius. You’ll be feeling planetary influences in your 8th house, which rules the psyche and hidden information. Take some time to sit with your thoughts and address any truths that you’ve been avoiding. Mercury retrograde will promote reflection and resolving unfinished business. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. During the first few weeks of the month, you’ll be supported in efforts to make peace with people and/or events from your past.

On the 20th, the New Moon in Virgo will be in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. This will be the perfect date to set new intentions and commit to a plan. Romantic partnerships could be a focus. If you’re in a long-term partnership, it will be a good time to talk about the practical aspects of your life and strategize how you can work together as a team. Shared resources and financial matters could be on your mind. Whether attached or single, this New Moon will provide support for new beginnings and getting organized.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance through September 21st. During these days, you’ll have the motivation you need to tackle projects you may have been procrastinating. It will be a great time to review your bank statements and catch up on bookkeeping, as well as clearing clutter from your home.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 7th house of partnership. Avoid making important relationship decisions or new commitments. Instead, enjoy spending time with those who are already in your life. If you meet someone new, keep things light and reassess how you feel after the 20th. An old flame could make a reappearance in order to resolve the past.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will shine in your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. You could see the profits from a money-making idea or investment. It will be a great time to review the details of a business proposal or investment plan, but don’t make big decisions about your money until after the 19th. Your intuition will be strong, and you’ll be encouraged to develop a creative idea.

September 22nd marks the Sun’s ingress into Libra and the Autumnal Equinox. This is a mid-way point in the Astrological year, which begins with the Spring Equinox in March. Take time to reflect on some of the highlights of the past six months. Consider planning some new adventures with loved ones.

Pluto will station direct in Capricorn on September 28th. It will be a great time to follow through with some of the commitments you’ve made to yourself. Whether you need to quit some bad habits or add health-related practices into your daily life, you’ll have the willpower you need. Pluto is helping you to transform in a positive way by letting go of behaviors that no longer serve you. You’ll feel your strongest when you stick to some regular routines.

Get out and mingle this month, Aquarius. New people and projects will help to renew your energy levels. The past couple of months could have left you feeling a bit depleted and ready for some alone time. However, this month’s astrology encourages you to get out of your own head and share some of your thoughts with others. Friends, partners, and family members can be an excellent sounding board and offer a useful point-of-view. At the end of the day, you will still need to decide what’s best for you, but it will help to get some feedback from those you trust. It could be a good month to plan a trip or enroll in classes to expand your mind.

The month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 8th house of intimate partnerships and shared finance. This will be favorable timing for business negotiations and shared investments. A practical energy will prevail, which could help you to make a sensible plan regarding debt or unresolved financial issues from the past. Love relationships could feel especially intense. It may be time to talk about a difficult subject. You’re scheduled to face the inevitable with a loved one, but the current astrology will help you to move through any uncomfortable topics with compassion.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 3rd house of communication and learning on October 5th. This will be a good time for socializing and catching up on correspondence. You may have something important to share with others that involves asserting yourself and establishing healthy boundaries. Emotions could be exaggerated, so think before speaking. You might feel differently a few days after the Full Moon has passed.

Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio and your 10th house of public image on the 9th. While Jupiter travels through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you could be offered a chance to learn a new skill and/or take on a leadership role. The emphasis will be on self-improvement, but you’ll be doing it in the public eye. This can cause some self-consciousness, but don’t let that hold you back. You wouldn’t be offered these opportunities if you hadn’t earned them. Say yes to the experiences you know will enrich you mentally and spiritually. Foreign travel could be in the cards.

On the 19th, the New Moon will be in Libra and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Use this New Moon to set intentions related to learning something new. Friendships and love relationships will be supported.

On October 23rd, the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 10th house of public image. You could be drawn towards activities that allow you to make close connections with others.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will be exact this month, which helps you connect with new people who can help you achieve your goals.

Your ability to step back and see the “big picture” will be a huge asset.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 10th house of career and public image. Use this New Moon to set goals in this area of life as well as for intimate partnerships, business partnerships, and accessing your personal power.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and you may be feeling a little “foggy” during the days surrounding this event. Therefore, avoid making important decisions November 20th - 24th. Give yourself time to consider your options and make final decisions before or after these dates, if possible. Be especially careful with financial transactions. Review your bank account for errors and don’t make major purchases during this time.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 11th house of friendship and community. The coming weeks will be ideal for travel and mingling with new people. You may be inspired to join a new group or club.

Your social calendar will likely be full this month, but be prepared for last minute cancellations and changes-of-plan. Mercury will be retrograde through your 11th house of friendship and community, making it an ideal time to catch up with old friends.

It’s time to start doing some of the things you’ve said you’ll do “someday.” You’ll be supported in efforts to be true to yourself. You have a generous nature, and often help those around you. Sometimes this can cause you to put your own needs on hold. Release any feelings of guilt about doing something simply for yourself.

" ["march"]=> string(3351) "

This will be a great month to catch up on all the small tasks on your “to do” list. If you’ve had errands, phone calls, or chores you’ve been meaning to do, this month’s astrology will support your efforts. It is an excellent time to catch up with people you’ve been out of touch with and review works in progress for errors.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. Your mind may be full of new ideas, but give yourself time to research your options. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Best to use this month to get organized and then move forward with plans towards the end of next month.

March begins with a Virgo Full Moon on the 1st. This is a powerful time to see intimate partnerships clearly and make practical financial decisions. Review shared resources and determine if you can make a more efficient strategy for saving or investing. Others could show they care through helpful gestures.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). This will be a productive time for writing projects, particularly if you’re writing stories about the past. Consider writing down important memories from your life to share with family members. It is also a great time to reconnect with siblings, neighbors, or other people who are close to you. Your mind could be eager for information. Stock up on some new books!

This Mercury retrograde cycle is the first in a series of retrogrades occurring over the next six months, including Mars and Venus retrograde. The effort you make during 2018 to put a wrap on anything unresolved will clear the ground for new beginnings in 2019.

The New Moon on the 17th will be in Pisces and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. This is a powerful New Moon for letting go of material possessions that no longer serve you. Consider cleaning out closets to sell or donate items you haven’t been using.

" ["april"]=> string(3313) "

You might find yourself reconnecting with former work colleagues or benefiting from your work experience in some way this month. If you’re preparing for retirement, this will be a great month to put a wrap on your work life. You could gain recognition for previous accomplishments, or be offered the chance to mentor others. Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. If you’re in the workforce or business world, it will be a good time to renegotiate existing contracts.

The New Moon on the 15th will be in Aries, making it an extra powerful time to set intentions for the coming year! This is a great time to make a vision board--or as Jan calls it, a “treasure map”--for your year ahead. You can do this by cutting out images and headlines that contain events or experiences you’d like to have in your life and pasting them to a posterboard. Because we’re in a Mercury retrograde cycle, be sure to reaffirm your intentions next month when the influence has passed.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a favorable trine that begins this month and will be in effect for the next six months. You may feel called to engage in philanthropic work by contributing your time and talents. It’s a great time to make powerful connections with those who want to make a positive difference in the world. It will be a favorable time for fundraising and/or collecting donated items to help the less fortunate.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). It’s time to do some soul searching. You might be hiding a truth from yourself, or avoiding some important work you need to do for your personal growth. The next few months are offering an excellent opportunity to practice taking responsibility for your actions and noticing subconscious habits you’d like to change. If your interactions with others feel challenging, look for ways you can change your attitude and approach to cultivate more positivity.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 10th house of public image. You could be recognized for your problem-solving skills or ability to help others. People will likely be drawn to your ability to stay calm during difficult circumstances and look to you for leadership.

It’s a great time to reach out to others and enjoy the company of family and friends. Make plans to participate in your favorite activities with loved ones.

A favorable trine between Jupiter and Neptune continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. You’re in line for some public recognition and reward for your past accomplishments. It will be a great time to attract the resources and financial situation to offer you peace of mind. If you have debts to pay, or owe debts, you’ll have the ability to make a successful arrangement to resolve these issues. The available energies encourage you to release financial burdens and unnecessary drains on your time and energy. It is an excellent time to downsize or pool your resources with others.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 4th house of home and family. This is an excellent New Moon to support intentions related to creating a sense of stability and being more comfortable in your living situation. If you’re thinking of relocating or just redecorating, this is a great time to initiate action!

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. Over the past seven years, you might have been attracting new people into your life as well as embarking on new learning experiences. Now Uranus will move into your 4th house of home and family. Be prepared for changes in this area of life that could be initiated any time in the next seven years.

You could be seeking more stability, but in the process you may need to change how you’re living in a way that could feel unfamiliar at first. The best way to work with this transit is to keep an open mind and go with the flow. It’s likely that some aspect of your home life is due for a change. Use the available energy to make positive upgrades that will make your life easier.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, illuminating your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Enjoy social activities towards the end of the month and reach out to make new friends.

" ["june"]=> string(3344) "

You’ll likely be feeling it when Mars stations retrograde in your Sun sign on the 26th, and if you were born January 27 - 31, of any month, you’ll be feeling the strongest effects. We’re in the shadow phase of this phenomenon now, and you’re being called to review your past actions and reconnect with your passion. It’s possible that you’ve put a dream on the back burner and it’s now time to revisit it.

Use the June 13th Gemini New Moon to set intentions related to your heart’s desire, playfulness, joy, romance, and spending time with children or grandchildren. You’ll be supported to schedule some dates and times on the calendar to make sure you connect with loved ones on a regular basis. Make dates for phone conversations if travel isn’t possible at this time!

Avoid making major decisions between the 16th and the 20th, as Neptune will station retrograde on the 18th. The days surrounding Neptune’s station can cause your mind to process information more slowly. Neptune is the planet of the subconscious, and when it’s retrograde (between June 18th and November 24th), you’ll have more access to your intuition and the spiritual realm. After the 20th, you’ll likely be more clear headed and better able to tune into your inner wisdom. Take some quiet time to yourself to prepare your subconscious mind to release old thought patterns and heal from the past.

With Neptune transiting your 2nd house of finance and self-worth, you could be feeling unsure about a money-related matter. Don’t push yourself to make a decision right away, and postpone major purchases for a better time. Sitting quietly in meditation can help you to access your inner wisdom. It’s better to be more conservative than usual with your money at this time.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. The Sun will highlight your 6th house of daily routines and health from this date until the end of the month. Take the opportunity to schedule more time for the activities that make you feel good. Make moving your body a priority and consider signing up for classes or regularly scheduled activities that have a social aspect.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in your Sun sign, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. You might be re-evaluating your role in a group and the responsibilities that are most important to you. While you have natural leadership skills, it might not be the right time for you to take on a big commitment. Think about ways to contribute to a group or cause you care about in a way that allows you the personal freedom you require.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will put the focus on your dreams and subconscious mind. You’ll actually be most productive around this time when you clear your schedule. Giving yourself time to rest will allow you the space you need to come up with your next big idea.

" ["july"]=> string(3194) "

This month, Mars will be retrograde in your Sun sign, putting the focus on your personal goals. You may be motivated to finish a project you started some time ago or take the initial steps towards something you’ve dreamed about for a long time.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, and your 7th house of partnership. During the last 10 days of the month, romance will be in the air around you! If attached, get out for some fun date activities. If single, accept invitations that allow you to mingle with new people.

Mercury goes retrograde in Leo on the 26th, transiting your 7th house of partnership. An old flame could re-enter your life in order to resolve the past. You may or may not be meant to reunite long-term. Don’t force relationship decisions at this time.

You’ll have more relationship clarity after August 19th, when Mercury stations direct.
