" ["august"]=> string(3544) "

Enjoy time with loved ones this month! The Sun will be in Leo until August 21st, encouraging vacations, parties, and creative collaborations. It will also be good timing to get financial affairs in order with a partner or other family members. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. This can be a great time for trips; however, allow extra time to catch planes or other modes of transportation. We’ll be feeling the influence of Mercury Retrograde all month long, which can throw a monkey wrench into even the most detailed plans.

A loving energy will prevail, making August a good month for romance. If attached, set a date with your special someone. If single, you could meet someone interesting at a cultural event such as a concert, play, or art exhibit. Because Mercury is retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, it won’t be advisable to commit to a new relationship. Keep things light with anyone new you meet and simply enjoy each other’s company.

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which discourages initiating new action. Instead, brush up on existing skills. You may be able to glean new insights by re-reading a favorite book. Former teachers or students could re-enter your life now. It’s a great time to reconnect with people from your past.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, it’s possible that you’ll be feeling restless. You may desire to take a trip or, at the very least, get out of the house more, as your regular routines at home could be boring you. In the coming months, you may begin to realize where you’ve been stuck in a rut, especially if you’ve been clinging to old habits out of a desire for security. It could be time to re-evaluate what you need to feel secure, and consider some updates to your current lifestyle. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll be able to start the new year with some new routines or changes to your home life that are a better match for who you are today.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance, as well as your 2nd house of personal resources and self-worth. During the days around this Eclipse, you may become aware of changes you’d like to make to your savings or investment plan. Estate planning, shared finances, and debts may be topics of concern. It could be time for a discussion with loved ones, even if it feels difficult to talk about the realities of your financial situation. Remember that the Eclipses will elevate the emotional intensity in the atmosphere—keep an objective and factual approach.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to intimate relationships, your psychological development, and shared resources. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. This is a powerful time to forgive yourself and others. Try to clear up disagreements from the past. It will be a productive time to work with a counselor or therapist. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll feel confident moving forward towards your individual or shared goals.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3860) "

September will be an excellent month to nourish your mind with classes, lectures, books, and films. Travel will also be supported, but because Mercury is currently retrograde, delays will be more likely. Plan accordingly. A travel-related snafu could turn into an interesting new adventure if you keep a flexible mindset. 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 brush up on an existing skill set or finish a work in progress.

The New Moon in Virgo on September 20th will be the perfect time to set your sights on new goals. You’re in a position to experience more personal freedom, but you’ll need to get organized. This New Moon will be especially powerful for intentions related to travel or higher education. Set some goals for the near future and outline the practical action steps needed to actualize your ideas.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education through September 21st. While this could be a busy time, you’ll be encouraged to slow your pace of life and savor each moment. Activities that benefit others could feel more fulfilling than less meaningful forms of recreation. Volunteer opportunities that benefit other cultures may seem appealing.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. These days can be a productive time to resolve matters with a business partner or family estate. The energy will also encourage rekindling feelings of love and romance within a current or former partnership.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will prompt valuable realizations about yourself and others. Feelings that have been hidden in your subconscious could emerge now in order to be addressed. Don’t resist the emotions that are ready to move through you now. It can be a great time to talk to a friend or therapist. Pisces energy encourages releasing painful feelings so you can access more compassion and love. Creative expression can feel especially healing.

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. The next few weeks will offer you a chance to socialize and make important connections. Celebrate your accomplishments as well as those of others. Your past work could lead you to a new opportunity.

Pluto will station direct in your Sun Sign on September 28th, offering you personal strength and determination. You’ve been working with Pluto’s energy since 2008 to shed the parts of yourself that have been holding you back. As you release fear and step into your own power, you’ve been able to make better decisions for yourself. Keep checking in to verify what feels right for you. While some things have changed for you personally, you still have the ability to advocate for your best interests as long as you can accept your circumstances. You’ll be at your strongest when you look reality in the eye and focus on what you’re capable of in this moment.

" ["october"]=> string(3879) "

October will be an excellent month to travel or take classes to expand your knowledge. You’re primed for new experiences, and this month’s astrology will support your adventurous side. If single, you could meet someone special on a vacation or in a class setting. Existing relationships will get a boost at the beginning of the month when you support each other’s need for independence. New beginnings will be supported in your home and family life as well as with any work you do that deals with the public. In order to manifest what you want right now, you’ll need to make some internal changes. It’s time to access your inner strength and allow more of your authentic self to come forward. You have a lot of skills and knowledge to share, and you’ll need to be aware of your value to others.

The month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. This will be a fantastic time for vacations or enrolling in classes. A grounded energy will be present to promote detailed planning and taking care of your physical body. The people you spend time with now will likely bring out the best in you and inspire you to demonstrate how much you care. You’ll have the ability to see your situation realistically and make sound decisions for yourself and others.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 4th house of home and family on October 5th. You could have a valuable realization about your living situation that will prompt you to make some changes. Independence will be a huge theme. However, don’t let your pride get in the way of setting up a living situation that best meets your needs. You could need some help from others. It will be a favorable time for real estate transactions.

On the 9th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio and your 11th house of friendship and community. During the time Jupiter will travel through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you’ll be primed for personal growth through your relationship with others. This won’t be a time to try and go it alone. Instead, tap into your social network and get to know others in your community. You could be inspired to teach or take a class, or both. You can gain more self-awareness and peace of mind when you share philosophical ideas with others. Religious or spiritual groups may be especially beneficial.

On the 19th, the New Moon will be in Libra and your 10th house of public image. You’re slated for new beginnings related to partnership and working with others. New endeavors that require teamwork will be encouraged. This is a great time to turn over a new leaf with the way you respond to those around you. Intentions related to fair negotiation and harmonious interactions will be supported.

On October 23, the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 11th house of friendship and community. This rest of the month will be a favorable time to get out and mingle. Love relationships will blossom and you’ll have a chance to learn more about someone special.

" ["november"]=> string(3901) "

This will be a great month to socialize, make new friends, and establish grounding routines. On one hand, you’re seeking stability and predictability. Yet, a part of you is seeking to break out of old ruts. You can reconcile these parts of yourself, but you’ll need to get out and meet new people. It’s not routine that is the problem, it’s just that you are ready for some new practices. You’ll be inspired by the way someone else is achieving their goals. Be willing to let go of the habits that no longer work for you and try some new tricks.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will highlight your 5th house of romance and creativity. This will be a good time to see results from work you’ve put in. Creative efforts could bloom - it may be time to show your work to the world! It will also be great timing to get close to loved ones or start a conversation with someone who interests you.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will be exact this month, which lends support for psychological work and stabilizing your living situation. If you’ve been going through changes in your home life, this aspect can help you to work productively towards a solution. You’re scheduled to experience more personal freedom, but you may have to set some ground rules for yourself and/or family members. You may need to find a living environment that supports your spiritual values. It is also an excellent time to streamline your possessions so you can liberate yourself from excess clutter.

Jupiter will be in a favorable trine to Neptune all month, which will be exact by the last few days of November. The Jupiter-Neptune trine is one of the prevailing aspects during 2018, but we’re getting a sneak preview over the next few months. This beneficial astrology can help you to form meaningful friendships and inspire you to help others. This will be a powerful time to work for a humanitarian cause and team up with like minded people to make a difference in the world.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 11th house of friendship and community. This is an excellent time to set your intentions related to creativity, group projects, friendships, and romance/intimacy.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and you may have trouble concentrating 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. You’ll need extra time to process information this week. Give yourself some alone time for meditation and/or prayer. Keep a dream journal by your bed, and jot down any insights that come to you during this time.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious. Feed your mind and spirit with lectures, classes, and books over the coming weeks. Get some rest, as you could get a lot busier when the Sun enters your sign next month on December 21st.

" ["december"]=> string(2999) "

Although December is a month associated with various types of celebrations, the current astrology is encouraging you to take things easy and be selective with your social activity. Mercury will be retrograde most of the month, and we’ll feel its effects through January 5th due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. Reconnect with yourself and don’t force it if you’re just not feeling like attending a party or other large gathering. One-on-one interactions will likely feel more comfortable. Consider reaching out to an old friend to catch up.

Spirituality will be a strong theme this month, and you might be inspired to set aside regular time in your schedule for meditation, prayer, yoga, or other activities that connect you with your Higher Power. The Winter Solstice on the 21st marks the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn and your 12th house of the subconscious and intuition. It’s an excellent time to let go of old habits and prepare yourself for new beginnings in 2018.

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 6th house of daily work and wellness. You could gain valuable insight about a situation with a neighbor, sibling, or co-worker. Your schedule could feel overwhelming—see what you can eliminate in order to free up time for relaxation and renewal. Mercury will be stationing retrograde on the day of the Full Moon. Try to stay calm if plans change at the last minute. Go with the flow and enjoy doing something outside of your regular routines.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality. You can use the power of this New Moon to do some psychological “housecleaning.” Think about the messages you give yourself and the stories you’ve created to explain your current situation. It’s quite possible you’ve been neglecting to give yourself credit where credit is due. Acknowledge your areas for growth and improvement, but toss out negative self-talk that could be limiting your ability to challenge yourself.

Saturn moves into your Sun sign on December 19th, which means you’ll feel the effects of this planet more acutely than some of your peers. When Saturn comes to visit, you can be sure that life lessons will follow. If you were born December 21-24, you’ll likely feel the most desire to “get serious” about your life. You could be focused on practical plans regarding your day-to-day life as well as how you plan to spend your time and energy. Frivolous activities will seem less appealing, and you’ll be eager to find new meaningful and productive ways to interact with the world.

" } [1]=> array(13) { ["senior-horoscope-year"]=> string(4) "2018" ["january"]=> string(3333) "

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will light up your 7th house of partnership. This is a great time to see relationships realistically, and if single, you could catch the eye of someone new. There will be a strong emotional energy in the air, which can help you to open up and share your feelings with others. However, everyone will be feeling a bit sensitive, so be gentle with yourself and those around you. Issues could get blown out of proportion. If this happens, take a step back and review your situation a few days after the Full Moon has passed.

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 your Sun sign, signifying your Astrological New Year! Use this powerful New Moon to make personal goals for the coming year.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. It’s possible you’ve had changes in the works that relate to your living situation and or relationship with family members. With this planet of surprise turning direct, expect the unexpected! Stay flexible to last minute plans with relatives, and keep an open mind about opportunities related to real estate or your home. You could be feeling impatient to make improvements to your home life, and you’ll likely have some innovative ideas. Don’t rush into big life-changing decisions. Even if your circumstances shift quickly, take time to research a plan that will offer you the most stability.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. This will be a lucky time to meet new friends and work with others who share your ideals. Consider volunteering for a community organization or getting involved with groups that work to help others. You often like to go it alone, but you’re scheduled to learn and grow through your friendships in 2018. Get out and mingle!

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. This will be a powerful time to understand your emotions. Things you’ve been feeling “beneath the surface” could become evident now and it will be easier to express yourself clearly. Intimate partnerships could be a focus. Use your new awareness to work through issues that may have arisen around the time of the August 2017 Eclipses.

" ["february"]=> string(3947) "

Use this month to organize finances and manage your resources. You’ll have astrological support to initiate new beginnings. It’s possible you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of your long-term financial planning. The New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will support innovative ideas. You could be inspired to use your creativity to make extra money, or raise money for others in need. It will be good timing to invest time and energy in humanitarian efforts. Get involved in your community.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. Because Pluto is in your Sun sign, you could feel this aspect more intensely than some of your peers, especially if you were born January 8 - 13, of any year. Your luck and opportunity will come through your ability to collaborate. You have strong leadership skills, and you’ll have the chance to offer practical guidance and long-term strategies to others. Identify the strengths of those around you and encourage them to put their skills to work for a good cause.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. During the first two weeks of the month, focus on bookkeeping, budgeting, and analyzing your finances. Think about pooling resources with friends. Trading goods and services with others can lead to win-win situations.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 3rd house of communication and information processing. Follow up on hunches, as your intuition will be strong. You’ll be supported in artistic expression such as creative writing, visual arts, music, and dance.

Both Mercury and Venus will move into the sign of Pisces mid-month. After Venus, planet of love and money, ingresses into Pisces on the 10th, you’ll have more access to feelings of forgiveness and compassion, which can have a healing effect on relationships. Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will help you to connect with your higher power. Meditation and/or prayer can help you to receive valuable messages.

" ["march"]=> string(3226) "

This is an excellent month for making home improvements and reconnecting with family members. It won’t be the ideal time for real estate transactions, but if you find you must sign a lease or buy a home this month, leave yourself room for negotiation. For example, short-term leases will be better than long-term, and if purchasing a home, be open to refinancing in the future.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. You’ll be inspired to start anew, but avoid making big decisions until the end of next month. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Use this month to focus on resolving the past.

March begins with a Virgo Full Moon on the 1st. This will be a great time to share your knowledge with others. Consider teaching a class or writing down your experiences so that others can learn from you. It’s a great time to get clear about what you value, and simplify if you’ve been overextending yourself.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). You’ll be focused on your security and home life. You could feel more like staying in and making your living space more comfortable. Reconnect with family members by hosting a get together in your home. It’s also a great month to minimize clutter and sell or donate items around your house that you’re no longer using.

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 3rd house of communication and learning. You could be drawn towards spiritual or musical studies. Feed your mind with what it needs to feel more peaceful, and release negative thought patterns.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon,” and the March 31st Blue Moon will be in Libra. Collaborative efforts will be rewarded. Your ability to bring people together will be recognized, and it is a great time to put your people skills to work in the public sector by mentoring or volunteering to help others.

" ["april"]=> string(3510) "

This will be an excellent month for family reunions and making improvements to your home. There is an emphasis on resolving the past, which could help you to reconnect with a relative or loved one from your childhood. Mercury is retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. If you need to renegotiate an existing lease or real estate agreement, you’ll be supported to work things through. Try to postpone any new commitments related to your living situation until next month, if possible.

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 could feel drawn towards spiritual groups, and you’re more likely to attract positive people into your life during this time. You may also be blessed with creative inspiration--take time to write, make music, draw, or enjoy any form of artistic expression you enjoy. Working on a creative project with others may prove to be especially successful and meaningful.

Saturn and Pluto have been at work in your Sun Sign all year, and they’ll both station retrograde this month (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). You’ll be feeling this astrology more strongly than your peers, especially if you were born December 30th - 31st, or January 11th -13th.

Capricorns are slated for a powerful year! It’s never too late in life to experience personal growth, and you’re ready to discover parts of yourself that may be emerging for the first time. Or you could reclaim talents that you haven’t expressed since you were younger. Over the next six months, you’ll be supported in your efforts to feel your personal power and take charge of your life.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 11th house of friendships and community. This is an excellent time to get together with loved ones who truly understand you. You may prefer smaller groups and one-on-one interactions to larger gatherings. Take the time to get deep and learn more about someone close to you.

" ["may"]=> string(3596) "

This is a good month to get organized around your house, conduct real estate transactions, and initiate positive changes with family  members. Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, offering support for new beginnings. You’ll likely be feeling the need for more personal space and independence. It will be important for you to set aside time for yourself to pursue your own interests. There will be an emphasis on family life this month, but be sure you have the ability to meet your own needs before stepping in to help others.

A trine between Jupiter and Neptune continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. This favorable astrology will help you to attract positive people into your life. Capricorns sometimes like to go it alone, but you’re being called to join forces with others at this time. You’ll thrive when you surround yourself with those who share your spiritual values. Consider volunteering for a cause you believe in and/or joining clubs, groups, or organizations that work to help others.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This is a powerful New Moon to set intentions related to committed partnership and gaining more enjoyment out of life. Think about ways you can give yourself special treatment, and make these practices a habit.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. You may have experienced some changes to your living situation sometime during the last seven years. Now, the focus is shifting to your personal happiness and heart’s desire. A part of you is craving more freedom and the ability to do things your way. If you’re in a partnership, it will be great timing to plan some romantic getaways. If single, you could meet some interesting new people over the next few years.

It will also be an excellent time for any type of creative activities. You’re likely to feel inspired, and you could find yourself interested in learning a new form of creative expression. Look into classes that might interest you such as drawing, painting, sculpture, dance, music, etc. This is your time to experience creativity. Make time for playfulness and be open to learning something new!

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, illuminating your 6th house of daily work and wellness. You’ll likely receive more social invitations towards the end of the month. Reach out to loved ones, and consider making a regular date to visit with the special people in your life.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 12th house of subconscious, intuition, and dreams. Pay attention to “coincidences” as they are likely signs from the Universe. This will be an especially spiritual Full Moon for you. Make time to meditate, pray, or commune with your higher power in the way that feels best to you.

" ["june"]=> string(3166) "

June is a good month to maintain your routines and make progress on anything you’ve started. The energy will slow as the month progresses. Use the New Moon on the 13th to set your intentions; but after that date, it will be difficult to push new ideas forward. You may need to do some research and slowly develop your plans over time.

The June 13th New Moon is in Gemini, which will help you to set intentions related to time management and healthy routines. The time is right to begin an exercise class or commit to healthier eating habits. It can be helpful to write down your goals and team up with a friend for accountability.

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.

You’re scheduled for some creative inspiration in the coming months. Spending time alone can give you the time and space needed to write, paint, draw, make music, or participate in other activities that give you a creative outlet. This could be very personal work that you are creating simply for your own benefit. There’s no need to share it if you don’t feel called to do so. You may choose to share it at a later date, but for now, take the pressure off and let yourself work freely.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. Your 7th house of partnership will be highlighted, making it a great time for a special date. There will be an emphasis on gratitude and enjoying the moment. Gather with loved ones to appreciate each other and celebrate the season.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. Mars will be in retrograde through your 2nd house of finance. Therefore, the timing isn’t right for major purchases or money-related decisions. You’ll be more successful dealing with the past - either paying toward debts you owe or collecting money owed from others. It might be time to resolve a conflict involving money and find a fair way to settle up.

The Full Moon on the 28th is in your Sun sign, making it a great time to enjoy the spotlight. You could be recognized for your achievements, and you’ll set a good example to others of how hard work and determination can pay off.

" ["july"]=> string(2881) "

Time to review your relationships, Capricorn! This could involve a romantic partnership, close friendship, business partnership, or relationship with a relative. While the Sun is in Cancer through the 21st, you and/or others could need some extra reassurance. Allow yourself to be vulnerable with others and accept help.

Enjoy some leisure time with loved ones from the 22nd to the end of the month, when the Sun will move into Leo, and your 8th house of intimacy. The astrology will be favorable to review a shared financial venture with loved ones, and/or strategize about money for a child or grandchild.  

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th supports intentions related to expressing your needs and caring for others. You could be seeking a balance between self-care and your ability to support a partner or other significant person in your life. Schedule the time you need for yourself so you feel refreshed when you’re engaging with others. Because Mercury and Mars will be retrograde this month, realize that it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for some of your plans to gain traction.

Hold off on making major decisions this month. Mercury goes retrograde on the 26th and we’ll feel the effects as early as July 7th. You’re more apt to experience miscommunications and missed connections. However, it’s a great time to get in touch with special people from your past. You’ll also be supported in efforts to complete a creative project.  

Review your budget this month, as Mars will be retrograde in your 2nd house of finance. It won’t be a good month for large purchases. Instead, consider selling old items and repairing what you already have. If you must make a purchase such as a vehicle, be sure to get a good warranty. Mars will direct your attention to finishing what you started. It will be great timing to pay off debts or collect any money owed to you!  

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will help you to see your financial situation clearly. It’s an excellent time to analyze your spending and savings. You could be inspired to donate your time or money to a worthy cause. Your special ability to help others will be awakened at this Eclipse.

Both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month, helping you to identify what you want and how to go after it. Mercury will station direct on the 19th. This planet of communication has been retrograde in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance since July 26th, which may have caused some misunderstandings in business and love. After the 19th, it will be easier to get on the same page about shared goals.

Mars will station direct on the 27th, but we’ll be in the shadow phase of this cycle until October 8th. Because Mars has spent part of its retrograde cycle in your Sun sign, you could have experienced more personal roadblocks this summer than some of your peers. Take it slow and be prepared to retrace your steps, especially when it comes to your personal ambitions and money.

This month’s New Moon on the 11th combines with a Solar Eclipse in Leo. This high-powered New Moon will activate changes related to intimate partnerships and/or shared finances. You’re scheduled to open your heart to more love in the coming months. This is a powerful New Moon to set intentions related to your self-confidence and taking a joyful approach to relationships. Children and/or grandchildren may be on your mind, and the timing is favorable for estate planning.

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.

A favorable trine between Saturn and Uranus is offering you powerful support for personal growth. Saturn is in your Sun sign this year, and if you were born December 22 - 27, of any year, you’re ready to take on some new challenges this month. While your ability to stick to a long-term plan will serve you well, you’re also learning to seize the moment. This month will involve some trial and error. Keep at it, as your efforts will eventually be rewarded. A spiritual trine between Neptune and Jupiter is guiding you to connect with the right people at the right time.

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, the timing will be ideal for travel planning, teaching, or taking classes. The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th will shine in your 3rd house of communications and learning. You’ll be able to pick up on how others are feeling without them saying anything. Tune in to loved ones and let them know you’ve heard them.

Mercury will clear the shadow from its most recent retrograde cycle on the 2nd, helping you to clear up misunderstandings and get to the root of a mysterious problem. It will be a great time for one-on-one conversations with loved ones and dealing with topics that you or others had been avoiding. Keep in mind that Mars is still in the shadow of its most recent retrograde cycle. Proceed in a forward moving direction, but avoid acting impulsively, especially when it comes to your finances.

Mars will clear its retrograde shadow by October 8th, and after this date you could find it easier to complete business or financial transactions. However, we will experience Venus retrograde in October. Venus is the ruler of love and money. You will be wise to resolve past debts and unfinished dealings in business or love. Avoid making major purchases during the next few months, if possible.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your solar 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education through the 21st. During the first few weeks of the month, review the details of any travel plans and indulge your desire to research a topic of interest. You’ll be especially hungry for new information and experiences. Seek out others who share your enthusiasm for knowledge and culture.

On the 22nd the Sun will ingress into Libra, marking the Autumnal Equinox. Use this special time to celebrate what you’ve accomplished individually and with others as a team. Bring in the harvest and enjoy it together! The last week of the month will be the best time for business dealings or presenting your ideas to others.

Saturn will station direct on September 6th, which will help you to manifest goals and make long-term strategies for success. Saturn has been traveling through your Sun sign since the end of 2017 to help you access the self-discipline needed to achieve a personal goal. This month, a dynamic trine between Saturn and Uranus will help you to combine your creativity with your natural drive to succeed. The climate will be ideal for an unconventional idea or romance to flourish.

This month’s New Moon in Virgo will illuminate your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Set goals related to teaching and learning.

" ["october"]=> string(3057) "

This month, you could gain public recognition and have the opportunity to pursue personal and financial ambitions. The astrological energies will encourage reconnecting with old friends and finishing up group projects. There is some support for new endeavors, but we are also experiencing Venus retrograde. Therefore, the astrological advice is “proceed with caution,” especially when money and love are involved!

Venus will station retrograde in your 11th house of friendship and community on October 5th. The official dates of Venus retrograde are October 5th through November 16th. Avoid committing to a new group project or activity during these days. You can best use this energy to complete a creative effort with others. Due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon, we may feel the effects until as late as December 17th.

It is a great time for reunions of all types. An ex-flame could re-surface this month. Don’t re-commit to the relationship at this time, but do determine if you have any unresolved issues that need closure. You’ll know by the end of the year whether permanently reuniting feels right. In the meantime, focus your attention on the familiar activities and groups that help you feel balanced.

Mars will clear the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. That’s good news, especially if a financial transaction has been delayed. You could finally receive an item you’ve already purchased, be repaid for a loan, or have the opportunity to resolve a debt you owe. Steer clear of big purchases this month and avoid making major financial decisions. Instead, close the loop on transactions that have been previously initiated. Fundraising efforts towards a worthy cause will be particularly supported.

The October 8th New Moon is in Libra and your 10th house of public image. Use this New Moon to set intentions related to harmonious relationships, building skills of diplomacy, long-term planning, and partnership goals. You could be asked to step into a leadership role. Your people skills and ability to motivate others will be an asset.

October’s Full Moon on the 24th is in Taurus and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. A creative project may come to fruition around this time, and you could gain clarity regarding a romantic partnership. Make time to play! Spend time with grandchildren or other special young people in your life.

It will be a great month to revisit your priorities and look at the big picture. Your Sun sign is known to be the planner of the zodiac, but even Capricorns can get off track.

The Sun will be in Scorpio and your 11th house of friendship and community through the 21st. This will be a great month to solidify long term friendships.

Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to intimacy, maintaining your close friendships, combining resources with others, addressing hidden problems, and strategizing to help those who are less fortunate.

Because the retrograde energies will be strong this month, realize that some of your intentions may take time to unfold. By this time next month, you may also realize you don’t want what you think you want now. Make note of your intentions, then revisit them on the December 6th new Moon.

On the 8th, Jupiter will move into Sagittarius and your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality. You’re preparing to make some internal changes that can help you more easily navigate the situations and relationships in your life.
