" ["august"]=> string(3268) "

August will be an excellent month to get financial matters in order, and a creative endeavor may prove to be profitable. The Leo Sun is illuminating your 2nd house of money and self-worth through August 21st, which can help you feel more confident and take charge of your resources. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo, which shifts the focus to your communications. If you’ve been out of touch with anyone you care about, the end of the month is an ideal time to reconnect.

It could be time to have an important conversation with a loved one about an important issue you’ve been avoiding. Hidden information may come to light. There will be an opportunity to connect with a partner or family member on a deep level if you are willing to have an open and honest dialogue. Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th. During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon, which discourages initiating action. Use this time to gather information and wait to make any big decisions until next month when we’re clear of Mercury Retrograde’s influence.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, you might feel the need for more personal freedom. It’s possible that you feel confined by other people’s expectations. It’s time to consider what you want, without worrying about what others will think. In the coming months, you’ll be gaining a stronger sense of self. You might be ready to step down from certain responsibilities, even if that means releasing some of your authority. This can be especially true if you are nearing retirement and have always defined yourself by the work you do.

This is a pivotal time period for you to reinvent yourself and realize you are much more than a job title. The next few months could feel like a soul searching time period. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll likely feel ready to share some of your “new” self with others.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. On August 7th, the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius emphasizes your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance, as well as your 2nd house of finance and self worth. This is a time when you might have to deal with topics that are often difficult to broach with loved ones, including discussions about family finances or wills. Keep in mind that this Eclipse can stir up excessive emotional drama. Take a step back and revisit the topic after the Eclipse has passed if conversations become heated.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo puts the emphasis on your finances and values. Solar Eclipses often promote endings and beginnings. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. What material possessions are you holding onto that may be a drain on your resources? Consider what you truly value and downsize accordingly.  By simplifying now, you’ll be ready to free up more of your time and resources during the second half of September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3605) "

Take the time to mull over some of your recent plans and ideas. You likely have the dilemma of too many choices, but it isn’t good timing to make important decisions during the first weeks of September.  Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. During these days, you’ll be supported in efforts to revise a current course of action. Don’t be afraid to admit if your approach isn’t working. Simply regroup and try again. It’s possible that you need more information before you can proceed.

Do your “homework” now so you’ll be prepared to move forward later this month. The Virgo New Moon on September 20th will be the perfect time to set your intentions and initiate new ideas.

The Virgo Sun will shine in your 3rd house of communications and learning through September 21st. Journaling can be a productive way to sort through your thoughts and ideas as you could be feeling a bit unsure about your next steps. Try to get yourself organized. You’ll need to finish anything you’ve started before jumping into a new project or commitment. Reach out to people from your past. It will be a great time to reminisce with old friends.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Review your budget and spending. It will be a good time to connect with grandchildren or other children in your life to share your generosity and wisdom. It won’t be an ideal time to shop for big ticket items. See what you can sell off this month and postpone making important purchases until after September 19th.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will awaken your desire for new life experiences. It could be time to plan a trip or enroll in some classes. Spiritual pursuits may seem particularly intriguing. Meditation, yoga, tai chi, or other practices to cultivate inner peace will be supported.

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. This will be a wonderful time to gather with family members and appreciate each other. Celebrate the successes of the past six months, and set some new goals together.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, offering you strength in the area of partnership. Whether attached or single, you’ll be feeling more solid in your sense of self and core values. This will give you the ability to take responsibility for your actions and set healthy boundaries with loved ones. While Pluto was retrograde (April 20, 2017 - September 27, 2017), you had the chance to rework your approach to relationships. You may have let go of certain fears and/or the need to control others. Now you’ll be able to enjoy the results of your psychological work in the form of balanced partnerships.

Your natural ability to create emotional connections will be accentuated, and you will be able to make a positive difference in the lives of those you love. Creative inspiration will be abundant! Make the most of this time period to pursue a creative outlet. Don’t worry about impressing anyone else with your work. Create from the heart, and do what makes you feel joyful.

The New Moon in Libra on the 19th will be an excellent time to set goals related to home, family, real estate, and partnership.

" ["november"]=> string(4198) "

This will be a good month to take charge of your time, so you can free yourself for some of the activities you love. Your social life will likely be busy at the beginning of the month. The Full Moon on the 4th will illuminate your 4th house of friendship and community. It will be a good month to get out and make new connections. This month’s astrology encourages asserting your independence within close partnerships as well as taking on a leadership role within your community or place of work.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will illuminate your 11th house of friendship and community. Use this time to express your gratitude for those who have stood by you through thick and thin. You’re likely to be appreciated for your generosity and reliability. It will be a fortuitous time to raise money for a charitable cause.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries has been boosting your motivation levels and you could feel inspired to start a new project. Your Sun sign often likes to work behind the scenes, but it’s possible you’ll need to stand in the spotlight in order to accomplish a goal. You won’t have to go it alone, but it will be important for you to feel confident about your ideas. This is a powerful time to take charge of a money-making venture as well as your physical well being. Pace your daily activities so you can maintain your energy levels and minimize stress.

Jupiter will be in a favorable trine to Neptune all month, which will be exact by the last few days of November. The powerful alliance between these two planets of spirituality is one of the prevailing aspects during 2018, but we’re getting a sneak preview over the next few months. You’re being called to get more enjoyment out of life! Traveling, taking classes, and developing a romantic relationship will all be supported. Your spirit has longed for more freedom, and the time is right to fulfill your heart’s desire. Consider expressing yourself creatively through visual arts, music, or dance.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 5th house of romance and creativity. This is a great New Moon, whether you’re single or in an existing partnership. It’s time to turn over a new leaf in your relationships. What negative patterns would you like to release so that you can give and receive more love? It could be time for a heart to heart talk with a loved one.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, which could lead to “foggy thinking” during the days surrounding this event. Therefore, it will be best to 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. You might be contemplating a personal dream involving travel or gaining a new life experience. Allow yourself to daydream, without nailing down the details just yet. You’ll likely see a clear path to follow after the 24th.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 6th house of daily work and health. You’ll be inspired to take on new challenges over the next month.

" } [1]=> array(13) { ["senior-horoscope-year"]=> string(4) "2018" ["january"]=> string(3231) "

2018 begins with a Full Moon in your Sun sign on the 1st, which will awaken you to your personal dreams and emotions that need to be addressed. Because your sign is particularly sensitive to the Full Moon, take care when interacting with others. You may take things too personally and be inclined to blow a situation out of proportion. Your feelings are valid, but wait until after the Full Moon has passed before opening important conversations with loved ones.

We’ll clear the shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde by the 10th, which facilitates forward momentum. Therefore, for best results, wait until after this date to set your New Year’s resolutions. This month’s New Moon on the 15th will be in Capricorn, supporting your goals related to partnerships of all types—romantic, platonic friendships, and business.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. You could be undergoing changes related to your public image and/or professional life. You may be on the brink of retirement or, if already retired, you may be starting a new chapter of life that still keeps you working in some way. Your accumulated skills and experience are of value to others, and you could be feeling inspired to share your talents. Your desire for more personal freedom will also be strong. Avoid committing too much of your time to other people’s agendas and focus on what you’d like to do.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. This will be a lucky time for love and travel! If single, you could meet someone new on a trip or vacation, and if attached, it might just be time for a romantic getaway. You’re ready for some new life experiences and you could be drawn towards spiritual studies. Consider classes or groups that focus on religion, meditation, or metaphysical topics.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st that sheds light on a financial matter.

Be sensible, but don’t be afraid to spend a little on something that makes you happy. Life’s little pleasures need not cost a fortune, but they can make a difference in your attitude and self-esteem. You’re worth it!

" ["february"]=> string(3917) "

This will be a great month to celebrate your individuality, Cancer. Those closest to you value your unique traits, and you’re scheduled to share more of your ideas with others. You often like to keep the peace, but this month’s New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will encourage shaking things up a bit in the name of healthier relationships. What works for others might not work for you. Releasing judgements on yourself and those around you can help you to feel more free. You and a loved one may agree to disagree.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. You’ve been shifting your attitudes towards relationships and feeling stronger in your sense of self. You have a gift for making others feel comfortable, and now it will be important to nurture yourself in the same way you care for others. Lucky Jupiter will be passing through your 5th house of romance. It will be good timing to feel closer to a current partner. If single, you could meet someone who feels instantly familiar.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. The first two weeks of the month will be well suited for intellectual pursuits and psychological understanding. It will be a great time to attend lectures or read self-help books that shed light on the human psyche. You’ll be able to resolve conflicts within a close relationship when you can step back and review the facts, without letting emotions cloud your judgement.

" ["march"]=> string(2901) "

This month, you could receive public recognition for your past accomplishments. Don’t take on new responsibilities, but instead focus on finishing what you’ve started. Others could be relying on you to help them complete the final phase of a big project.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Stay patient if delays occur. It could provide you the opportunity to catch errors in a plan before moving forward.

As March begins, we’ll experience a Full Moon on the 1st, in the sign of Virgo. Use the days around this Full Moon to get organized. You’ll be especially supported in efforts to sort through paperwork, bills, and manage your daily schedule. You could have a valuable realization that helps you to effectively solve a problem.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). From March 8th on, focus on wrapping up works in progress and refining your efforts. You may be called on to share your expertise with a younger generation in need of your personal and professional experience.

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, activating your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. It is a great time to revisit dreams involving travel, taking classes, or teaching others. Envision your ideal scenarios and invite miracles into your life.

" ["april"]=> string(3339) "

This will be an energizing month, poised to bring creative inspiration and motivation. You could find yourself in the spotlight, being recognized for your past accomplishments; and romance also looks favorable. However, because Mercury will be retrograde this month, it’s best to avoid making new commitments. Keep it light with anyone new you meet and reevaluate how you feel next month. Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. People from your past could resurface in order to address unfinished business.

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’re encouraged to follow your heart’s desire. This can include deepening an existing relationship, or allowing a new romance to bloom. Travel and/or taking classes will be favored. You could be seeking more meaning out of life, and it will be uplifting to surround yourself with others who share your philosophical curiosity.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 7th house of partnership (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). This is a useful time to review current relationships and/or revisit a relationship from the past. Lessons you learned in a previous partnership could offer the wisdom you need now. You might feel more introspective than usual. Give yourself time to honor how you feel and don’t force social interactions if you’d rather spend time alone or one-on-one with someone close.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 5th house of romance and creativity. As the month ends, you may feel more energized and ready to go out and have some fun! Kick up your heels a bit and enjoy being playful with friends and loved ones. It will be a fantastic time to finish up a creative project and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

" ["may"]=> string(3289) "

This is a fantastic month to get out and about, and share your talents with others. You could be tapped to be a mentor to others in your field or get recognized for your achievements in some way. Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, making this the month to move forward with new plans. Leadership opportunities are highlighted, and you’ll feel inspired to enjoy more independence. Work-related agreements or business dealings will be supported.

A favorable trine between Jupiter and Neptune will be exact during the last half of May. Cancers born July 7 -10, of any year, will feel this astrology moreso than their peers. But, in general, all Cancers will be tuned in to this energy that highlights their intuition and emotional intelligence. Romantic partnerships will be ripe for a little magic and some compassionate healing. It will also be a wonderful time to connect with children or grandchildren and create special memories. Consider planning a trip or taking classes with loved ones.

The Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 11th house of friendship and community. This is an excellent New Moon to set intentions related to joining groups, volunteering, humanitarian efforts, and sustaining your long-term friendships. You could be inspired to commit to a group or club that supports your values.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. While you may have felt more energy in your public life or career in years past, you’re entering a time period where your friendships and sense of community feel the most energizing. You could find yourself in new situations, surrounded by people who have very different backgrounds than your own.

You may be considering a relocation, or shift in lifestyle that allows you more time to develop friendships and feel your independence. You’ll crave freedom from limiting circumstances, and may find yourself fired up about social change. Channel your energies productively to help others.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, which will help you to access your subconscious and intuition. You’re due for some divine inspiration. Keep a journal by your bed to write down significant dreams or middle of the night thoughts that may wake you.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th highlights your 6th house of daily work and wellness. Your hard work will pay off if you’ve been sticking to a health-related routine. If you’ve gotten off-track, it will be easy to see what you need to adjust in order to be successful. Try to incorporate some excitement and sense of adventure into your daily life.

" ["june"]=> string(3044) "

If you were born on or after the 21st of this month, happy birthday! On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into your Sun sign, signifying the Summer Solstice. Treat yourself to something special and allow others to honor you. This is a good month to review your personal goals and determine if you need to follow through with a commitment you made to yourself. Enjoy spending time with friends and family, as you’ll be encouraged to appreciate loved ones at the Solstice.

The New Moon on the 13th is in Gemini, supporting your creative ideas and intentions related to learning, communication, and spirituality. It will be a good timing to join a group of like minded individuals who enjoy exploring different spiritual philosophies. Consider starting a writing project or journal.

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.

The coming months will provide a good opportunity to consider how you can put your ideals into action. You may be yearning to use your life experience and/or education to help others. Perhaps a specific part of the world is calling to you and you have a desire to make a difference. While you may not be sure of just what you’d like to do, the coming months are an excellent time to dream and ponder the best way to share your unique gifts with the world.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that will last until August 27th. It won’t be good timing to commit to a new relationship, but if you’ve been in a committed partnership, you could renew your friendship and passion with your partner. If single, you could reunite with someone special from your past in order to address unfinished business. In general, it’s a great time for all Cancers to reconnect with close friends and give back to their community.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th highlights your 7th house of partnership. Shared goals with a romantic partner, friend, or business partner could come to fruition around this time. There will be an emphasis on dividing responsibilities fairly with others.

" ["july"]=> string(2793) "

This month’s Solar Eclipse / New Moon on July 12th will be in your Sun sign! If you were born July 10th-14th, of any year, you’re scheduled for the most personal transformation. However, all Cancers can use the power of this New Moon combined with an Eclipse to visualize positive changes for themselves. It will be an excellent time to set goals for your physical wellbeing as well as how you’d like to adjust your attitude and outlook. Because we’ll be experiencing Mars and Mercury retrograde this month, don’t expect instant results. It could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for some of your ideas to take shape.

The Sun will be in your sign until the 21st, highlighting your best attributes. Allow others to celebrate you, and if it’s your birthday month, happy birthday! Focus on what you need and take a break from caretaking everyone around you. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, transiting your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. You may feel like treating yourself, but postpone major purchases this month, as Mercury will station retrograde on the 26th. Do allow yourself some small indulgences, but in general, focus on spending quality time with loved ones. Some of the best things in life are free!

Because Mercury is retrograde in your 2nd house of finance, the energy will support collecting money owed to you or repaying debts you owe. Mercury will station direct on August 19th, and by September 2nd, it will be a much better time to commit to a purchase or other financial obligation.  

Additionally, Mars will be retrograde all month in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. If you’re in a partnership, this is a great time to rekindle the passion and friendship with your partner. If single, you could reconnect with someone special from your past.

Both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month, which eases the flow of communications, especially when it comes to financial transactions. Mercury goes direct on the 19th; so if you’ve been waiting to finalize a financial agreement, you could see the details fall into place by the end of the month. The days after the 19th will be great for organizing your budget and reviewing your accounts. By next month, we’ll be completely clear of the shadow phase of this phenomenon and you’ll be supported to put your plans in motion.

Mars will station direct on the 27th, but we’ll be in the shadow phase of this cycle until October 8th. Best to take it slow and be prepared to retrace your steps, especially when it comes to decisions related to intimate partnerships or shared finances.

This month’s New Moon on the 11th combines with a Solar Eclipse in Leo.

It is a great time to set intentions to spend quality time with children and/or grandchildren.

Any intentions you write at this time are likely to unfold over the next six months.  But because there is so much retrograde energy afoot, state your intentions clearly, then revisit them at next month’s New Moon on September 9th to make sure they’re what you truly want. We’ll be under the influence of various retrograde cycles between now and the end of the year. You can make progress, but the pace will need to be slow and you might have to circle back to finish something you thought was complete.

If you were born July 5 - 12, of any year, you’ll feel especially “in the flow” this month due to a favorable trine between Jupiter, Neptune, and your Sun Sign.

A favorable trine between Saturn and Uranus will energize a special partnership and/or friendship in your life. This is an excellent month to learn from others and get involved in group activities.

While you’ll experience less resistance to new initiatives this month, keep in mind that Mars is still in the shadow of its most recent retrograde cycle. The timing still won’t be right for making important decisions about money or an intimate relationship.

Mars will clear its retrograde shadow by October 8th, but Venus stations retrograde October 5th and is the ruler of love and money. Because we’re in the shadow of Venus retrograde all month, proceed in a forward moving direction, but avoid impulsive decisions. Review your current circumstances and reflect on what you need.

Mars clears the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. This will be a productive time to move forward from a loss or painful memory.

By doing so, you’ll release the tendency to take things personally, and feel less entangled in other people’s drama.

Due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon, we may feel the effects until as late as December 17th.
