This is your big month, Leo! The Sun is in your sign until August 22nd and we’ll experience a Solar eclipse in Leo on the 21st. If you were born August 19th - 23rd, of any year, you will be embarking on a year of change ahead. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo, and your 2nd house of finance. Use the end of the month to go over your bookkeeping and organize your budget.

This month, you could be renegotiating existing agreements with a friend or partner. You may need to assert yourself in order to restore balance in a relationship. If single, this can be a good month to enjoy the company of someone new in your life. Or, you may reconnect with someone from your past. Because Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, the timing won’t be right to make new commitments or big decisions about your relationship status.  

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon, which discourages initiating action, signing contracts, or making life-changing decisions. With Mercury in retrograde through your 2nd house of finance, best to keep the status quo when it comes to money or investments. Work on resolving past debts and using your existing resources wisely.

You may be presented with the opportunity to become a mentor. Your experience and knowledge can provide valuable guidance to others. Explore these ideas now, and when Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll have a clear sense of how to proceed.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. Both eclipses involve your Sun sign, so you’re likely to feel them quite personally. On August 7th, the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius emphasizes your 7th house of partnership and 1st house of self. If you were born August 6th - 10th, of any year, you’ll probably feel this eclipse intensely. You’re being asked to open your eyes to your current reality now so you can make healthy adjustments. Keep in mind that the Eclipses heighten our emotions. Avoid confrontations during these days and give yourself space to process what you feel about yourself and/or a partner.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in your Sun Sign will initiate a new cycle of personal growth. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. This is a powerful time to shed old ways of being that no longer serve you. What self-destructive habits, situations, or relationships are you ready to say goodbye to? The mental transformation you feel happening now is preparing you to take on some exciting new challenges after mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3665) "

Avoid buying big ticket items or making important financial decisions 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. During these days, your best bet will be to stick to your regular routines and research any financial plans you may be considering. It will be excellent timing to address your own debts or money owed to you. However, payments could be delayed and miscommunications will be more likely this month. Take care to double check any transactions.

On the 20th, we’ll experience a Virgo New Moon that will provide support for taking new action. For the rest of the month after this date, you’ll be in the clear to make large purchases or move ahead with a business idea or investment plan. Set financial goals and assess your resources.

Set aside time to do the activities that are most important to you.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in your Sun sign, which could increase the likelihood of miscommunications. While it will be good timing to reconnect with old friends, be sure to confirm your plans and don’t take it personally if last minute cancellations occur. It will be an excellent time to finish a creative project and give yourself some rest and relaxation.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th could stir deep emotions. Employ sensitivity when dealing with others. Your intuition will be strong, but don’t make big decisions just yet. Instead, make a note of what you notice now and review it after we’re clear of Mercury’s retrograde influence. The days around this Full Moon can be valuable for psychological healing and making peace with endings and beginnings in your life.

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 month offers a chance to stabilize and look to the future. The past couple of months could have been a bit bumpy, and you might have been resolving issues from the past. However, October’s astrology will bring you the chance to make the most of your available resources and solidify plans for the future. It will be a good time to reach out to others in order to gain the necessary information to complete a project. If you were born August 12 - 18, of any year, your natal Sun will be conjunct the North Node in Leo, and part of a Grand Trine in the fire signs!

On the 9th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio, bringing luck and opportunity to your 4th house of home and family.

" ["november"]=> string(3750) "

It will be a good month to get your home life organized. The New Moon on the 18th will support goals related to real estate transactions, family relationships, wills, estates, and intimate partnership. At the beginning of the month, you’re scheduled for public recognition or material gains as a result of your hard work. It could be a good time to make some long term plans with a romantic partner, and someone could ask you to share your expertise.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will highlight your 10th house of public image. You could be recognized for past achievements and others will respect your ability to see a project through to completion. It is an excellent time to share your gifts with others. Consider working with a group that aligns with your values.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will help you to achieve creative goals and feel more personal freedom. This helpful trine has been in effect most of the year, and you’ll be able to enjoy its benefits until the middle of next month. It is a prime time to capitalize on past efforts so that you can enjoy more freedom now! You may be stepping back from your career in order to pursue your creativity and/or travel.

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. This will be a good time to manifest a “dream house” or ideal location if you are thinking of a move. It will also be an excellent time to improve your relationship with family members and let go of painful feelings from the past.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 4th house of home and family. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to real estate transactions, wills, shared finances, improving your relationship with family members, and psychological healing.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and it could be difficult to concentrate 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. Because Neptune has been transiting your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance, be especially cautious in your business dealings, and avoid making major decisions related to finance or relationships during these days.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 5th house of romance and creativity. The weeks ahead will be a great time to enjoy new life experiences with loved ones.

" ["december"]=> string(2808) "

Don’t be surprised if an old flame resurfaces this  month. Mercury will be retrograde in your 5th house of romance and creativity, stirring up memories and people from your past. It’s also an ideal month to spend time with your own children, grandchildren or other children in your life. If single, avoid committing to a new romantic relationship this month. Instead, keep things light with anyone new you meet and review how you feel after January 5th, when we clear Mercury’s retrograde shadow.

This month could have a more serious feel than the rest of 2017. You’ve had a big focus on recreation and leisure this year, but you’re now preparing to make some self-improvements that require your time and effort. Health and wellness might be a prime concern, and you’re feeling it’s time to adjust your diet, get more rest, exercise more regularly, or all of the above. Realize that the changes you implement need to be sustainable, so don’t try to do everything at once. Take time at the Solstice on December 21st to reflect on the past year. What good habits have been working for you? How can you improve and expand on them?

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 11th house of friendship and community. This is an ideal time to reconnect with old friends. Consider hosting a party or reunion! Because Mercury is stationing retrograde on this day, miscommunications will be more likely. Take a moment to clarify your conversations with others before reacting emotionally. A friend may have valuable information to share.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 5th house of romance and creativity. Goals related to romantic partnership or a creative endeavor will be supported. However, wait to take action until after January 5th, when we clear Mercury’s retrograde shadow period. Use this New Moon’s energy to renew your efforts to finish what you’ve started. You could get the travel itch - research some options!

Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19th, which will shift your focus to your health and organizing your day-to-day life. This initiates a two-and-a-half year period that can help increase your motivation levels and commitment to your wellbeing. You’re ready to improve your life by feeling better and ridding yourself of unnecessary drains on your time and energy. Don’t be too hard on yourself and take the time to celebrate each small victory along the way.

" } [1]=> array(13) { ["senior-horoscope-year"]=> string(4) "2018" ["january"]=> string(3092) "

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will bring hidden information to light. It’s likely you’ve needed some time to yourself to get in touch with your feelings and take a break from the world. This Full Moon will promote introspection and self-care. You may discover that you’ve been avoiding the truth about a personal situation. Instead of getting upset, look at the practical action steps you can take to help yourself.

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 time management, work, daily routines, and health.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. As this planet of rebellion prepares to move forward again, you could feel inspired to take action on an idea you’ve been thinking about. Travel could be particularly appealing. You may be feeling spontaneous, but it will serve you well to do some research before embarking on a trip. That said, don’t feel you have to plan every day to the minute. You’ll want to leave room for the magic to unfold as you discover a new location.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. It’s a great time for romance and intimacy! Your close relationships will be a focus, and you may be making some changes to your living situation. Though it can feel as if your normal routines are being disrupted, the planets are working in your favor. Stay open to doing things in a different way and encourage honest conversations about what you and/or a partner or family member may need.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in your Sun sign on the 31st! This astrological event can provide you with missing information to help you complete a project or idea that was initiated around the last pair of Eclipses in August 2017. If you were born August 2-6, of any year, you’ll be feeling the greatest power of this Eclipse and are in store for new opportunities in 2018.

" ["february"]=> string(4102) "

This will be a good month to infuse current partnerships with fresh energy, or attract a new partner into your life. You’ll learn the most from the people close to you, including friends, romantic partners, or members of your community. The New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will help you to get a fresh start within a current relationship, or attract someone new. You’re scheduled to bring more people into your life in the coming months. You could be surprised by the connections you make with people who seem very different than yourself.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. These powerful planets will help you to establish routines and make positive changes for your long-term wellbeing. You’ll be able to make your living situation more comfortable and have the self-discipline necessary to adhere to health regimens. You’ll feel more in charge of your time and your body. Make yourself a priority. Real estate transactions will be favored.

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 group activities. You could be drawn towards a church or other spiritual organization. Attend cultural events, as being surrounded by art, music, and creativity will lift your spirits.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. The latter half of February will be ideal for healing, forgiveness, and letting go. Look within to determine if you need to release negative feelings towards yourself or a loved one. Let  the past stay behind you and lighten your emotional load. It will also be a fantastic time to rid yourself of unwanted material possessions that may be weighing you down psychologically.

Both Mercury and Venus will move into the sign of Pisces mid-month. When Venus, planet of love and money, ingresses into Pisces on the 10th, you’ll be ready to attract healing energies into your life.

Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will help you to express your creativity and insights!

" ["march"]=> string(3092) "

This is a good month to focus on finances, learning, teaching, and reconnecting with loved ones who live in faraway places. The Sun will move into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. But, the timing won’t be quite right for new beginnings. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th.

Therefore, it will be best to finish what you’ve started. You’ll be supported in efforts to brush up on an existing skill set or share your knowledge with others. If traveling, keep a flexible attitude as delays are often more common during Mercury retrograde. If you embrace a spirit of adventure, you may find that unplanned changes to your itinerary offer you a fun new life experience.

As March begins, we’ll experience a Full Moon on the 1st, in the sign of Virgo. Your finances and material resources will be a focus. It is an excellent time to review accounts and balance your budget. You may discover ways to save money by making minor modifications to your daily routines.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). Instead of jumping into new activities, put your energy towards renewing the activities you used to enjoy. It’s likely that a hobby or group you were once a part of has gradually slipped out of your life. Mercury retrograde cycles are the perfect time to reconnect with the people and pastimes you love.

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 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. You can use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to emotional healing, forgiving yourself and others, and setting healthy boundaries with loved ones.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon.” The March 31st Blue Moon will be in the sign of Libra, which will help you to navigate social situations with diplomacy. It will be easy to see all sides of a situation and come to a fair agreement.

" ["april"]=> string(3471) "

You’re scheduled to enjoy learning or travel opportunities this month, but you’ll need to be flexible about your plans. Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. This can translate into travel delays or miscommunications. Embrace last minute changes with a sense of adventure. You’ll be supported in your efforts to brush up on old skills, making it a good time to go back to school or teach others.

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 generous and loving astrology will have a positive effect on your home and family life. You’re scheduled to strengthen connections with relatives and feel more peace and security. You could receive money as a result of a real estate transaction or investment, and your intuitive powers will be strong. Your ability to bring people together will serve you well. It’s possible that you’ll help members of your family to mend fences.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 6th house of daily routines and wellness (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). This can be a positive time for your health, but you may have some work to do. If you’ve neglected self-care routines, this will be a time to recommit to a healthy lifestyle. You may need to kick some bad habits and focus on integrating better eating and more exercise into your daily life. Joining a structured program, such as a regularly scheduled exercise class, can help you to stay on track.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 4th house of home and family. Your connection to those family members you feel closest to will be a focus. You or a loved one could feel inspired to share their feelings. However, if this becomes overwhelming for anyone, revisit your conversation a few days after the Full Moon when the energy has calmed. Honest communication will help to strengthen your bond with those you love.

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

This is a great month for travel, vacations, and new life adventures! Mercury clears its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, promoting new energy and ideas. You’re ready to expand your mind through new life experiences and you could benefit by taking some classes. It’s never too late to learn new skills. You also likely have some wisdom to share with others. You could be approached by someone who would like your mentorship, and you may want to consider teaching a class of your own.

The spiritual Jupiter-Neptune trine continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. This powerful astrology is working to help people let go of the past, heal, and connect with their higher power. Leos will feel spiritual fulfillment through creative activities and opening their heart to loving relationships. You’re being asked to start anew in some way, and embrace the mystery of life with childlike wonderment. Even if you have an abundance of life experiences, this astrology will help you to feel the humbling awe of our small place in the Universe. Don’t be surprised if a special child in your life brings you gifts of wisdom and joy!

The Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 10th house of public image. This is a powerful New Moon to set intentions related to your financial security. The timing will be favorable for new business deals and investments. Tauruses who may be considering retirement will be supported in their planning. If you’ve already retired, you can use this New Moon to set some personal goals.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. If you hold a leadership position in your work life, a club, or other organization, the next few years could be a time to make some big changes. The overall goal of this transit is your personal freedom and ability to feel valued for the effort you put forth to help others.

If you’re in the workforce, you could be considering a major change such as retirement or stepping back in some way that allows you more personal freedom. Uranus can bring surprises, but when you embrace a flexible attitude and willingness to try new things, you can work with this energy effectively.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, which will light up your social life. Enjoy mingling with new people and accept invitations to parties or other events. It is a favorable time to reach out to friends and join new groups.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Travel plans with loved ones could come together around this time and it’s a good time to get out and enjoy the beauty of nature.

" ["june"]=> string(3365) "

If you were born August 1 - 3, of any year, you could be revisiting a personal goal this month, as Mars retrograde will be opposing your Sun. You may feel this Mars retrograde cycle (June 26th - August 27th) more personally than your peers. Review the way you handle anger, self-motivation, physical exercise, and intimate relationships. It’s possible you need to take a more subtle approach and make peace with yourself and/or others.

The New Moon on the 13th will be in Gemini. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to making friends, groups, networking, social skills, teamwork, and community projects. You’ll be supported in any efforts to improve your communication skills and learn something new with others. Consider taking a class with friends or signing up to volunteer for a worthy cause.

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 be an especially effective time for any type of psychological healing, individually or with a partner. There is an emphasis on forgiveness and releasing illusion. If you’ve been overly idealizing a person or situation, you might realize that you’re missing out on enjoying your own reality.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. This day is traditionally a time to celebrate life with loved ones and express gratitude for all you have. It is a great time to gather with family or friends, but you may not feel like attending a large party. It could be more meaningful for you to arrange special time one-on-one or in small groups. Creative activities will be especially favored.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. The coming months will provide you the opportunity to resolve conflicts with a partner, friend, or business associate. Initiating or impulsively taking action will not work in your favor. Instead, review existing agreements and seek to renegotiate anything that has felt unfair. Take a step back and analyze the situation logically, avoiding dramatic emotional reactions.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will highlight your 6th house of daily work and wellness. If you’ve been following healthy routines, you could enjoy feeling some physical benefits around this time. It will also be an excellent time to put a wrap on any personal or work-related projects.

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

The Sun will be in Cancer until the 21st, which could make you feel more introverted than usual. Make time for activities you can do on your own that bring you personal enjoyment, such as creative projects, journaling, or simply daydreaming. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into your Sun sign and for the last 10 days of the month you could be more socially active. Accept invitations and enjoy the company of others. If you were born July 22 - 31, of any year, enjoy your birthday this month!

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will stir ideas from your subconscious. You could be seeking emotional or material security as well as a closer connection to family. You’ll be encouraged to let go of old beliefs that may be limiting you now. When it comes to new endeavors, you’ll need to be patient as we’ll experience both Mercury and Mars retrograde this month. Realize that it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for some of your new ideas to take hold.

You may feel it quite personally when Mercury stations retrograde in your Sun sign on the 26th. Don’t force major decisions, and give yourself extra time to reach your destination, if traveling. Miscommunications and unexpected delays could occur, but if you keep a flexible attitude, you’ll be able to maximize any unscheduled down time. Reinstate personal habits that you’ve been neglecting, such as a regular exercise or other personal care routines.

Don’t be surprised if old friends or lovers resurface in your life this month. Mars will be retrograde throughout August in your 7th house of partnership. You can use this energy to reconcile with anyone you’ve had a conflict with or resolve unfinished business. It won’t be great timing for new relationship commitments. Instead, work on building a friendship with any new romantic interests you meet. If you’re currently in a partnership, you’ll benefit by getting out in groups. Reconnect with old friends and make social plans.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will also activate your 7th house of partnership. You could have a valuable realization about a partner, or your approach to partnership. You could be feeling extra emotional, with this Full Moon Eclipse opposing your Sun, especially if you were born August 2 - 6, of any month. Take a time out and revisit sensitive topics with loved ones a few days after the Eclipse has passed.
