Golden Years Monthly Horoscopes Coming in August!

These monthly horoscopes are written especially for mature adults who are continuing on their path of personal growth and self-improvement. Each month, these horoscopes will provide valuable astrological insights to help gain a new perspective about the life changes that accompany aging. By understanding the planetary cycles during this unique stage of life, these horoscopes will offer validation and encouragement to navigate issues such as grief and loss, physical limitations, love relationships, finding new inspiration at any age, financial issues, family relationships, and housing situations. 

" ["august"]=> string(2931) "

During the first few weeks of August, the Leo Sun will be illuminating your 3rd house of communication, making it an ideal time to reach out to others. Creative expression will be supported and you could be inspired to teach or take an art, drama, or music-related class. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo. The remainder of August will be an excellent time to organize your living space.

Much of the astrology this month promotes change. For you, this may mean internal changes that are difficult for others to see from the outside. However, you’ll be aware that some of your beliefs are being challenged. Take some quiet time to listen to your own voice and get clear on how you feel, without the influence of others.

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 will discourage starting anything new. But, activities beginning with the prefix, “re-”, will be supported! With Mercury, your ruling planet, in retrograde through your 4th house of home and family, it will be a great month for home redecoration or remodel projects, or reconnecting with family members.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, you might feel ready to break free from a group that you no longer feel aligned with.  It’s possible that you’ve outgrown a social group and are ready to find people whose values are aligned with yours. In the coming months, mix with some new people, but be sure to save some time for yourself. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll likely feel more clear about a new group or club that you’d like to join.

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 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education and 3rd house of communication and learning. The days around this Eclipse are ripe for powerful insights and the desire for personal growth through new experiences. It will be an excellent time to plan an overseas trip or research some classes that you’re interested in taking.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo puts the emphasis on your communications with others as well as how you process information. 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. This is a productive time to let go of ideas that no longer serve you. What stories have you been telling yourself that are simply not true or relevant anymore? Attitude adjustments made this month will strengthen you to make important decisions in the second half of September, when the energies support pursuing new goals.

 
" ["september"]=> string(4269) "

Your living situation and/or real estate matters could be on your mind this month, Gemini. While you might be eager to make a change, try to avoid making major decisions or commitments during the first few weeks of September. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. Home improvement projects, such as remodeling or redecorating will be supported all month. It will also be a fantastic month for family reunions and reconnecting with loved ones.

You’ll have the green light to move forward with real estate transactions and/or signing a new lease after the Virgo New Moon on September 20th. In addition, you will be supported in any decisions that help you to establish more security. It could be time to analyze your finances and other resources and plan for your family’s future. There will be a practical energy available that will help you to facilitate productive conversations with loved ones.

The Virgo Sun will shine in your 4th house of home and family through September 21st. These days will be ideal for clearing clutter and organizing your living area. When Mars ingresses into Virgo on the 5th, you could feel some extra physical energy. Self-care and wellness will take center stage. Pace yourself and try to stick to some regular routines. You’ll have the ability to help a family member with some practical advice. Resist the urge to try and influence their decision-making process. Once you’ve given your opinion, step back and let them make their own choices. You’re more likely to be heard if you present your point of view in a matter-of-fact manner.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo and your 3rd house of communication and learning. These days will be a great time to reconnect with old friends and/or romantic partners. It will also be an excellent time to re-experience a beloved book, play, album, or film. Consider hosting a party with a creative theme linked to one of your favorite eras or movies.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th could put you in the spotlight! This Full Moon will support creative endeavors and sharing your creativity with others. It will be good timing to get out and about. If you’ve been working towards a goal with others, you may see results around this time. If things haven’t progressed as you’d hoped, try not to get upset. The Full Moon will heighten everyone’s emotional state. Assess your situation from a practical standpoint. It’s possible that you need more time, resources, or information to get yourself back on track. Take some time alone to consider your options.

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 an excellent time to celebrate friendships, business partners, and romantic partners. If single, the rest of the month will be a great time to meet new people! Your skills of tact and diplomacy will be quite appealing to others.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, allowing you to see your power within an intimate partnership or financial situation. You’ll be initiating a new chapter related to shared finances, debt, and intimacy. You’re ready to face certain realities that may have felt difficult to address. The current astrology will support being proactive and taking responsibility for your decisions. It will be excellent timing to release fear and take charge of your life in a new way.

Kind gestures will speak volumes. All types of partnerships will benefit from practical conversations and you’ll enjoy a stabilizing energy that can help you to make future plans. Now that we’re clear of Mercury’s retrograde shadow, it will be the ideal time to start a new project or pitch your idea to others. Be sure to pace yourself, as it could be tempting to overdo it this month.

The month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 4th house of home and family. This can bring balance to relationships with your spouse, or other family members. It’s possible you’ll need to compromise with a loved one, but you’ll be supported to initiate productive conversations. You’ll be able to see all sides of a situation and balance your own needs with those around you. If your emotions start to cloud your judgement, look at the facts to get yourself back on track.

On the 10th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio and your 6th house of daily routines and health. This will be a favorable transit for any type of physical healing and building strength. During the time Jupiter travels through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about your body’s needs and encounter the right people and situations to support your health and wellness goals. If you’ve been trying to identify the cause of mysterious physical symptoms, the next year will provide you the chance to get some answers. You’re scheduled to increase your free time and energy levels. Your biggest problem could be too much of a good thing. Avoid over scheduling yourself and/or overindulging in your favorite food and drink.

" ["november"]=> string(3988) "

You can put your social skills to good use this month by working for a cause you believe in. The November 4th Full Moon will activate your 12th house of spirituality, which offers support for you to put your ideals into action. It will be a good time for fundraising and unifying people towards a common goal. You’ll have a motivating effect on others, and it will be good timing to form long-lasting alliances.  

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will illuminate your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious. The days around this Full Moon can serve as a wake up call. It’s time to bring your ideas into a tangible form. The thoughts you’ve had in the back of your mind for some time are important. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been in your subconscious for so long. Use the energy of this Full Moon to determine the resources needed to reach a goal.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will be activating the areas of your birth chart related to friendships, romantic partnerships, or business associates. You’ve been attracting new people into your life this year, and your job is to determine what groups and individuals support your values. The alliances you make have long-term potential, but you will need to feel confident being yourself with anyone you decide to team up with. When you connect with people who celebrate your individuality, you’ll be on path.

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 scheduled for physical healing and a chance to help others by virtue of your experience. Use any adversity you’ve been through as a tool to relate to others who may be going through similar circumstances. You’ll have the ability to uplift the spirits of those around you and offer them hope for the future.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 6th house of daily work and health. This will be a powerful New Moon to initiate healthy routines and get to the root of any physical symptoms you may be experiencing. It will also be a good time to take charge of your schedule. Don’t be afraid to say no to demands on your time or energy that could be draining.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and it could be difficult to think clearly during the days surrounding this event. Therefore, it will be best to avoid making important decisions November 20th - 24th. You’ll be feeling especially idealistic about how much you can do. Try not to commit to a project simply because other people want you to do it. After the 24th, it will be easier to determine what you really want to do without being influenced by others.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 7th house of partnership. The end of the month looks especially favorable for romance. It could be time to embark on a vacation or new life adventure with a loved one.

" ["december"]=> string(2702) "

Mercury, your sign’s ruling planet, will be retrograde this month. You’re likely to feel the effects of this phenomenon more so than your peers. Give yourself time to get to appointments, as delays will be more common. You may need to lighten your schedule to allow yourself some alone time to reflect and clear your head.

This month, you could be thinking about the more serious topics of life and feel a stronger sense of responsibility for your loved ones. Lean into the practical energies available to help you cultivate a sense of security. However, don’t forget to enjoy the moment. The Winter Solstice will be December 21st. You may want to plan a special get together with a spouse, close friend, or someone else dear to your heart. Celebrate your ability to be authentic and emotionally vulnerable with those who mean the most to you.

The Full Moon on the 3rd is in your Sun sign! Because Mercury is stationing retrograde today, your mind could be spinning. It’s likely that you’ll have a lot of great ideas, but it won’t be the right time to start anything new. Focus your mental energies on finishing what you’ve started. Take some time to sit quietly and listen to your inner wisdom. It’s easy to get distracted by others and forget what it is that you need.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 7th house of partnership. You’re ready to make some partnership-related goals, but the timing isn’t quite right to commit to someone new. The energy of this New Moon occurs during Mercury retrograde. Therefore, it will be an optimal time to reconnect with a current or former partner. Are there shared goals you and a loved one need to complete together? If single, keep things light with anyone new you meet this month. You’ll be more clear about the relationship after January 5th, when Mercury’s retrograde effects have cleared.

Saturn moves into Capricorn--and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance--on December 19th. You’re in store for some lessons and a greater sense of responsibility in these areas of life in 2018. You’ll be building on the knowledge and resources you already have. What long-term plans need your renewed commitment? How can you best utilize your time, money and energy? What issues involving an intimate relationship have you been avoiding?

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will shed light on your financial situation. Stability and long-term security will be at the forefront of your mind. Review your accounts and keep frivolous spending in check. You may need to spend some money on practical concerns such as housing and/or home repairs. It could be time to streamline some of your possessions and simplify your living situation.

We’ll clear the shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde by the 10th, which will facilitate 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, offering support  for your goals related to intimate partnerships, business partnerships or shared investments, and psychological healing and/or breaking addictive behavior.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. This planet of rebellion may be stirring up your social life to help you meet new people. You may be in the process of redefining yourself, and desire to shake off the expectations of others. Just because you’ve “always” been a certain way, doesn’t mean you have to stay that way forever. Gravitate towards the groups and friends who allow you to change. It’s time to feel more authentic and stop worrying so much about what others think. That said, there’s no reason to risk your well being to prove a point. Be unique, be you, but also be safe and reasonable.

Jupiter and Neptune will be working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. Your daily routines and health are due for an upgrade. It’s a great time to get a check up and start a new wellness routine. Look for ways to address the root of any health issues you may be having, rather than masking the symptoms. This will be a beneficial time to heal both physically and mentally.

In addition, you’re scheduled for public recognition based on your past work. It’s possible that you’ll be recognized for compassion and efforts that have benefited others. Put your ideals to work and garner public support for a cause that’s near and dear to your heart.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st which can bring important information to light regarding a romantic partnership or other loving relationship. Your connection to children or grandchildren could be especially strong, and you may be learning more about how to relate in a way that promotes more fun and childlike wonderment. Take the opportunity to enjoy playful activities and make heartfelt connections.

It will be a wonderful month for travel, and if you don’t have a trip planned, the New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will provide support for your dream trip.

You’ll feel liberated when you rid yourself of unnecessary items. Consider selling or donating old clothing, furniture, and other household items. On a psychological level, it will be a powerful time to let go of mental baggage that’s been holding you back. It’s time to change the stories you tell yourself and make healthy adjustments to your mental outlook. It will be excellent timing to work with a therapist.

" ["march"]=> string(3003) "

You’re usually a social butterfly, but this month it will do you good to be choosy about the invitations you accept. You’ll be called spend time reconnecting with old friends, rather than getting out and about to meet new people.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year, but it won’t be time for new beginnings just yet. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Be flexible to last minute changes of plan and don’t take it personally if you experience some missed connections this month. The energy will be encouraging a slower pace of life.

As March begins, we’ll experience a Full Moon on the 1st, in the sign of Virgo. This is a good time to finish up organizational projects around the house. If you need to clear the air with a family member, keep the discussion productive and focused on the practical matters at hand.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). The timing is ideal to finish a group project. Don’t commit to new groups or responsibilities this month, as you’re meant to finish what you’ve started. You may need to take stock of your time and energy to determine where to focus your efforts.

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 10th house of public image. You have love and compassion to offer those around you. Set intentions aimed at bringing more joy to your own life and the lives of those around you. If you have a creative vision, it could be time to share it with others.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon.” The March 31st Blue Moon will be in Libra, making it an excellent time for successful negotiations. If you’ve been trying to reach an equitable solution, the energy will support your efforts to create a win-win outcome.

" ["april"]=> string(3296) "

Mercury, your ruling planet, will be retrograde this month, which could increase the likelihood of miscommunications and missed connections. Take the time to re-confirm your plans with others, and be flexible enough to go to “plan B” at the last minute if needed. Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. It is an excellent month for reconnecting with friends, family, or anyone from your past.

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. This is an especially good time for physical healing and spiritual practices. If you’re dealing with a health issue, it will be a powerful time to incorporate meditation and/or prayer into your daily routine. Cultivating a peaceful state of mind will strengthen your body and spirit.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). You will be called to do some psychological “housecleaning.” It’s time to let go of old baggage and reframe your attitudes about past events. It is a potent time for any type of therapy; and you’ll likely feel more empowered in your responses to an emotionally-charged situation.

This can be a time to renegotiate business agreements or an intimate relationship. When you bring your personal power to the table, you’ll be able to create win-win situations. But first, you may have to admit where you went wrong and/or stand up for your principles.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will shine in your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. Pay attention to any physical symptoms and find out the root cause. This can be a good time to uncover potential health problems and nip them in the bud.

" ["may"]=> string(3332) "

This will be a great month for you to take on new challenges and meet new people. Your ruling planet, Mercury, will clear the shadow phase of its recent retrograde cycle on May 3rd. Use this month’s motivating energy to inspire others to join forces towards a common cause. During the second half of the month, you’ll be feeling a bit more introverted and ready to attend to your own needs. Plan social activities for the earlier part of the month.

We’ll be blessed with spiritual energy from the Jupiter-Neptune trine all month, and this aspect will be exact during the last half of May. You have gifts to share with the world, and this positive astrology helps you to find the best way to connect with others. You’ll experience a lot of joy when you can give back to those around you. Your lifetime experiences and acquired skills will likely earn you recognition.

The Jupiter-Neptune trine is in effect until early October. Use the coming months to develop daily habits that can help you to feel more connected to others and your higher power. Practicing yoga, meditation, prayer, Qi Gong, and other activities to integrate your mind and body will be especially beneficial.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will support your intentions to let go of stubborn habits and get in touch with your values. Think about what might be standing between you and your goals. It’s possible that rigid thinking is causing you to get in your own way! If you have money matters to resolve, this will be a great New Moon to make some goals for your financial well being.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. As Uranus moves from your 11th house of friendship and community into your 12th house of subconscious and spirituality, you could find yourself craving more alone time than usual. Your subconscious mind is ready to transform and grow, so you can free yourself from limiting beliefs. It will be a great time to explore different religions and philosophies and cultivate the habits that promote inner peace.

The Sun will ingress into your sign on the 20th, helping you to recognize your talents and top priorities. Make time for yourself! Don’t be shy about communicating your needs to others. You’ll be supported to stay true to yourself and you’ll help others feel more comfortable expressing themselves in the process.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 7th house of partnership. This is an exciting time for romantic relationships, as an adventurous spirit will prevail. Travel will be favored. If single, you could meet someone special while visiting a new location.

" ["june"]=> string(3201) "

Happy birthday, Gemini! The New Moon on the 13th will be in your Sun sign, signifying your astrological new year. Set intentions for the coming year, and focus on your personal goals. Get out and about while the Sun is in your sign through the 20th. It could be a busy time, but you’ll have the ability to be in charge of your schedule. There is a strong emphasis on reconnecting with friends from the past and putting your attention towards a longtime dream or experience on your “bucket list.”

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 let go of old thought patterns and heal from the past.

Over the coming months, you might be letting go of a public persona related to your past. If you’re retired, you might be releasing the part of your identity that was tied to your former profession. Or, you may simply be recognizing that you’re a different person than you were even a year ago and are ready for more of your true self to be seen by others. It will be a great time for creative inspiration, and you could be motivated to share your work with others.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. Take time to appreciate the abundance in your life! Your 2nd house of finance will be illuminated, and you could be the recipient or giver of gifts. Family and security are a focus—remember that time together is your most precious resource.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. If you’re planning on traveling during this time, stay flexible, as there could be unexpected delays. Aquarius rules rebellion and Mars rules action, so a transportation strike of some sort wouldn’t be out of the question. But, if you’re open minded and up for adventure, you’ll be able to make the most of your circumstances. It will be a great time to reunite with old friends or lovers.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th illuminates any power struggles related to an intimate relationship or a financial agreement. Notice if you need to step into your power or if you are the one who has been operating in an overbearing manner. This Full Moon can help you see your situation clearly and create a healthy dynamic with loved ones or those you do business with.

" ["july"]=> string(2802) "

We’ll enter the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde on July 7th. Mercury is your ruling planet, and it officially stations retrograde on the 26th. You may feel the influence of this planet’s retrograde cycle more strongly than your peers. Take your time with communications and be sure to clarify your intentions with others.

Mars goes retrograde in your 9th house of travel on the 26th. If traveling this month, you could experience delays. Keep a flexible attitude and embrace the adventure of any last-minute changes in plans.

You may be ready to review your finances and other material resources. A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer highlights your 2nd house of finance and self-worth on the 12th. You may be ready to use your resources in a different way in order to gain more financial security. This high powered New Moon combined with an Eclipse will offer support for your intentions related to home and family, real estate investments, relocation, and/or home improvements. Because we’re in the midst of both Mars and Mercury retrograde, it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for some of your ideas to take shape.

The Sun is in Cancer until the 21st, which will help you to keep an eye on your budget. Use the early part of the month to review your accounts and review your long-term savings plan and any estate planning you may be doing. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, ushering in a playful energy. During the last 10 days of the month, the Sun will transit your 3rd house of communication and learning. You may receive several social invitations. Take advantage of time available to spend with children or grandchildren.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will stir your desire for new life experiences. Your mind is eager for knowledge and you may wish to take some classes in a subject that interests you. You’ll also be supported in any activities that get you out of your comfort zone - traveling, short excursions, and new social situations will be supported. Keep in mind that the Full Moon Eclipse can heighten people’s emotions. It might be necessary to do your own thing on the days on and around this time.

Both Mars and Mercury station direct this month, which will make it easier to initiate action and have clear connections with others. Mercury, your ruling planet, goes direct on the 19th, so it’s best to wait until after this date to commit to a new goal. The rest of the month will be ideal for refining your ideas. 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 stations direct on the 27th, but we’ll be in the shadow phase of this cycle until October 8th. Proceed slowly and be prepared to retrace your steps, especially when it comes to travel plans, educational pursuits, shared business ventures, and intimate partnerships.

This month’s New Moon on the 11th combines with a Solar Eclipse in Leo. This high-powered New Moon will stimulate change and new beginnings related to teaching or learning, writing, and networking for business or pleasure. It will be a great time to learn a new form of creative expression or hone your existing skills in the arts.

Any intentions you write at this time are scheduled 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 helping you to conquer a fear and make a positive change for yourself. Your subconscious is being stirred so you can release denial and embrace your current reality. Your inner strength is being activated and it is a great time to talk with a counselor or wise friend for support. Jupiter and Neptune are also in a harmonious trine all month. This is a beneficial transit for health matters and you could gain public recognition. Even if you’re retired, you may be inspired by a business idea or “retirement career.”

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you’ll be supported in efforts to get organized at home. Time to clear the clutter! The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th illuminates your 10th house of public image. Dream big, and consider how you can put your skills to work to help others in need.

We’ll clear the shadow of Mercury retrograde on the 2nd which facilitates an easier flow of communication and strengthens your ability to process new information.

An intimate partner or other loved one may point out an issue you’d rather not deal with.

You’ll be supported in efforts to get organized and focus on self-care this month. Strive to create a healthy balance between tending to your chores and obligations and allowing yourself some playfulness and fun! Plan out special time with children or grandchildren and enjoy using your imagination together.

Mars clears the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. This energy will motivate you towards the activities you’ve procrastinated or that had been delayed. It’s a great time to join a class or group of people who stimulate your intellect and curiosity about the world. You’ll be supported in your travel plans—organized tours provide an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge and new life experience.

The October 8th New Moon is in Libra, highlighting your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This is an ideal New Moon to set intentions related to experiencing more joy and love in your life. Aim for harmonious negotiations that allow all parties to feel they’re being honored. Be willing to agree to disagree and focus on enjoying your time together. Creative expression could be particularly appealing, making this a favorable time to dance, make music, or create art with loved ones.

Because Venus is retrograde all month, the astrological timing won’t support new committed relationships until the beginning of next year. Take it slow with anyone new you meet during this time, and avoid making hasty relationship decisions if you’re in a current partnership.

Finish what you’ve started before taking on more projects. The energy will support bringing a creative work in progress to fruition. The official dates of Venus retrograde are October 5th through November 16th. Due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon, we may feel the effects until as late as December 17th. As 2018 ends, you’ll be in a good position to follow your next inspiration.

October’s Full Moon on the 24th is in Taurus and your 12th house of the subconscious, dreams, and intuition. You’re scheduled to receive valuable information in a dream or meditative state. Nurture your body and spirit with delicious food, relaxing surroundings, and activities that help you feel grounded.
