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.

Parties, creative activities, and working for a cause with others are especially favored this month. With the Leo Sun lighting up your 11th house of friendship and community through August 21st, it’s a great time to get out and mingle. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious, making the end of the month a good time for a personal retreat.

You may be re-evaluating an important relationship this month. You’ll be encouraged to ask for and receive support. Others may not realize that you could use their help. Because Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, there is an emphasis on reconnecting with people from your past, including former lovers, friends, neighbors, or work colleagues.

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which discourages making new commitments. With Mercury in retrograde through your 12th house of spirituality and intuition, schedule some solitary time to meditate and reconnect with your inner voice. Even though it feels good to help others, be sure to renew yourself so you can offer assistance from a place of strength.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, you could be feeling fired up about a conflict with a loved one. This will be a good time to examine the role you play in the relationship and decide what you can change about your own behaviors and reactions. In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to practice setting healthy boundaries. This doesn’t mean you have to be combative or confrontational. Instead, you can practice feeling strong in your principles and standing up for yourself with grace and tact.

By engaging in behaviors that demonstrate your self-respect, you’ll garner respect from others. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you could find yourself feeling more confident to assert yourself and it could be easier to find win-win solutions with those you care about.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th activates your 11th house of friendship and community, as well as your 5th house of romance and creativity. This Eclipse provides support for completing a creative project or goal. Romantic partnerships could feel tense around this time. You’re meant to have some realizations that can help you and a partner to grow. Seek a balance between becoming too enmeshed in other people’s personal dramas and being so detached that you become uninvolved.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to the people and causes you identify with. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. You could be feeling a strong need to find “your people,” meaning the groups and friends who resonate with your heart’s wisdom. This will be a good time to put an energetic call out for the people and communities you wish to engage with. Don’t worry about committing to a new group just yet. It will be more obvious where you should share your talents after mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears.

Take a break from your usual level of social activity this month, Libra. Time to recharge your battery! Giving yourself time to relax, write in a journal, and listen to your own thoughts will help you to feel more balanced by the last week of the month. The current Mercury retrograde will support your efforts to slow down and regroup. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. The timing will be excellent to do some organizing, and in the process, enjoy going down memory lane as you sort through old items and photographs.

The Virgo New Moon on September 20th coincides perfectly with the conclusion of Mercury’s retrograde effects. From this date to the end of the month, you’ll be supported in efforts to move forward with new plans. At this New Moon, set intentions related to letting go of the past, psychological healing, releasing addiction, and listening to your intuition.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your 12th house of subconscious and intuition through September 21st. Use these days to rest and renew. When the Sun moves into your sign on the 22nd, you’ll likely feel the call to get out and about more. While the Sun is in your 12th house, spirituality may be a source of support. Connect with your higher power to gain more clarity and peace of mind.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 11th house of friendship and community. It’s likely that you’ll reconnect with a friend from the past, if you haven’t already within the past month. Your bigger life goals could be on your mind now. Time to review your “bucket list” and see what plans you can make to actualize a dream.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will highlight your 6th house of daily routines and health. You could feel results from any work you’ve been doing to heal your body. It will be a good time to see your situation clearly and recognize if daily habits have been having an adverse effect on your health. The timing will be ideal to identify and release addictive behavior and negative thought patterns.

September 22nd marks the Sun’s ingress into your Sun Sign and the Autumnal Equinox. This is a mid-way point in the Astrological year, which begins with the Spring Equinox in March. During the next month, you’ll enjoy your personal Astrological New Year on your birthday! You’re scheduled for personal growth through your relationships with others. The timing is right to invite new people into your life, as well as celebrate the special loved ones who have been on your life journey so far.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, which can help you to feel in charge of your living situation and family dynamics. It will be important for you to be realistic about your long-term plans. You could be letting go of a former home, or the role you used to play in your family. Take the time to acknowledge any feelings of loss, and step confidently into your current position. Focus on the future security of yourself and your family.

You’ll feel “in the flow” this month, Libra. The Sun will shine in your sign through the 22nd, highlighting our natural ability to bring people together. The New Moon on the 19th will serve as your “astrological New Year”. Use the power of this New Moon to set goals for the coming year! You’ll be working with your subconscious to release limiting beliefs and continuing on your path of self-improvement. Loved ones can be a source of support, especially when it comes to helping with practical matters. Keep the lines of communication open and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. You’re often the one taking care of everyone else; but this month brings the lesson that receiving is an important aspect of balanced relationships.

The month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 12th house of spirituality and intuition. You could gain valuable insights about a past or current relationship. You’re scheduled to transform your feelings into loving action. However, you could need some alone time in order to be at your best with others. Making time for meditation or prayer can help you to restore your inner peace and connection with a higher power.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 7th house of partnership on October 5th. This will illuminate relationship issues and help you to get clear about your needs. Whether attached or single, you’re able to be true to yourself, which will improve relationships with everyone in your life. If single, your unique traits will be appealing to others and it will be a favorable time to meet someone special.

On the 9th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio, blessing your 2nd house of finance with good luck for the next year! During the time Jupiter will travel through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you could receive extra money through an inheritance, business venture, or investment. Teaming up with others can prove profitable, as long as you have a strong relationship. Cautious financial planning will be supported. It could be tempting to spend more if your financial picture looks rosy, but keep your long-term plans in mind. You’re also scheduled for personal growth through a close relationship. Someone who cares for you will help you to recognize your value and boost your self esteem.

On the 19th, the New Moon will be in your Sun sign, signifying your personal astrological New year! Use this power day to set goals for the coming year. Intentions related to partnership, improving your image, negotiation skills, and self-care will be supported.

On October 23, the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. For the rest of the month you’ll be supported in efforts to save money or make a sound financial strategy. Listen to your intuition when it comes to love and money—if something doesn’t feel right, don’t feel pressured to proceed.

" ["november"]=> string(4132) "

You’re in store for some good luck related to money, as well as your work and health. It’s a good time to let go of material possessions that you’re no longer using. Consider having a garage sale or donating items to a favorite charity. This month’s New Moon will support goals related to finance, particularly shared investments or business partnerships. You’re also scheduled for some productive conversations with loved ones. If you or someone you care about gets upset, you’ll have the chance to solidify your relationship by discussing your feelings. You’ll feel the love and commitment from those who support you.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will help to shed light on a confusing financial issue. It is a good time to review your bookkeeping and clear things up with a business partner or family member with whom you share resources. You may want to invest in companies or causes you believe in, or allocate more of your time and resources towards meaningful pursuits.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will benefit your relationship with platonic friends, lovers, and business partners. This aspect brings lessons about staying true to yourself and accepting others as they are. Librans often accommodate others to keep the peace. However, this astrology encourages you to let your needs be known in a non-confrontational way. If you or others lose your temper, remember your commitment to support each other. Conflict can be a productive way to strengthen your relationships as long as you’re willing to talk things through.

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 can use the energy of this trine to maximize your resources of money and time. Avoid being overly idealistic about what you can accomplish in a set amount of time. Instead, give yourself “wiggle room” to ensure a successful outcome. When it comes to money, you’ll be in the flow. Enjoy your gains, but be sure to save some aside.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Use this New Moon to set intentions related to earning or saving money, business strategy, psychological healing, and self-confidence.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and you may not be able to concentrate 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. This week will be good for listening to your intuition and visioning. Take notes of the ideas that come to you now and revisit them after the 24th. Notice how some of your daily activities make you feel. It could be time to adjust your routines.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 3rd house of communication and learning. The coming weeks will be a great time to take classes, attend lectures, and/or teach a skill to others. Writing projects will be especially favored.

" ["december"]=> string(2807) "

Take care with your communications this month, Libra. Mercury will be retrograde December 3rd - 22nd and we’ll feel the effects all month due to the “shadow period” on either side of these dates. It will be a great time to catch up with anyone who’s been out of touch. However, keep a flexible attitude towards social plans, as last minute delays or snafus could arise. Don’t let unexpected events derail you—simply improvise and look for the opportunities available.

Home and family matters may be on your mind later in the month. You’re preparing for important decisions in this area of life over the coming two-and-a-half years. The Winter Solstice on the 21st will mark the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn and your 4th house of home and family. Take time to reflect on this day. Acknowledge all that you’re grateful for, and consider your priorities for the coming year. It could be time to pare down some of your possessions, downsize your home, or move closer to loved ones.

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Because Mercury is stationing retrograde today, there could be a slightly chaotic energy afoot. Avoid rushing, as you could overlook important details or misunderstand what others are telling you. Today’s energy will be best spent slowing down and analyzing the information you have. You could have some important realizations, especially related to new life experiences you’d like to manifest in 2018.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 3rd house of communication and learning. Use this New Moon to make wishes related to being a student or teacher, or both! You’re hungry for new knowledge and ready to stretch your skills. Research activities or classes that inspire you. Review your options, and make a decision about what to commit to after January 5th, when we’re free from Mercury’s retrograde effects.

Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19th, which will shift your focus to your living situation and/or relationship with family. You could be feeling an extra sense of responsibility for loved ones. Next year, you might begin taking steps that promote the long term security of yourself or family members. Real estate investments or selling accumulated items you’re no longer using will be supported. Take charge of your time and material assets. Decide what your top priorities will be.

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, and you could find yourself in the spotlight. Your ability to care for others won’t go unrecognized. Those around you will celebrate your people skills, and you may serve as a positive role model for younger people who would like to follow in your professional footsteps. You may be in high demand, and this could be a busy time. Take care not to overbook yourself, and schedule some time to rest and renew your energy with quiet time at home.

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 home and family, investments, real estate, and long-term security.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. You’ve been feeling the need to express your individuality, and this could be causing some friction within friendships or romantic partnerships. Uranus stirs our desire for change by creating feelings of restlessness or impatience.

You’re used to focusing on the needs of loved ones, but you’re meant to make yourself a priority right now. You may be ready to pursue a new goal or hobby on your own. Don’t take drastic actions. Look for the root of your discomfort, and find small steps you can take to feel more independent. Talk to friends or your partner about your needs. You may be surprised by their willingness to support your efforts. If single, you could attract someone new and exciting into your life.

Jupiter and Neptune will be working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. You’re scheduled for some good money mojo! You’ll be in the flow as these two planets help you to capitalize on your creative talents and desire to help others. This will be a beneficial time to fundraise for a charitable cause and/or make money from a creative idea. If you’re in the workforce, you may be setting your sights on retirement dreams in the near future. If retired, the fruits of your past labor will taste especially sweet.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. You could play a prominent role in a cause or social organization you believe in. The available energy supports generosity and bringing people together. Causes that help children may be of particular interest. Let yourself stand out from the crowd. Creative ideas begun around the August 2017 Eclipses could start to blossom.

Love will be in the air this month. Whether attached or single, it’s time to revitalize romance in your life. The New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will initiate new beginnings that will unfold over the next six months. You’re scheduled to enjoy a sense of community and you could bond with someone over the shared desire to help others. Follow your creative inspiration. Consider taking classes or working on a creative project with a loved one. If single, you could meet someone who shares your artistic vision.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. It will be a lucky time to attract money into your life and make the most of your current resources. It could be time to let go of material possessions that are no longer serving you. You’re poised to reap rich rewards for your efforts to streamline. Consider quality, not quantity when evaluating your material assets.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. Use the first two weeks of the month to develop an idea that’s uniquely yours. The inspiration you have could end up helping others. It will be a great time to connect with any children or grandchildren in your life.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. Integrate spiritual practices into your schedule to access feelings of inner peace. Your Sun sign is normally quite social, but allow yourself some alone time during the second half of the month in order to renew your spirit.

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 could feel appreciated by someone you see on a regular basis. Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will support your mind-body connection. Positive thinking can yield powerful results.

" ["march"]=> string(3043) "

You’re in for a great month to get clear about relationship issues and your personal needs. You’ll have a chance to reconnect with loved ones as well as take time for yourself.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. However, the available energies will encourage finishing what you’ve started. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. You can set some new goals, but be prepared to do some research and be patient about initiating action.

The month begins with a Full Moon in Virgo on the 1st. Emotions could surface from your subconscious in order to be addressed. There is likely a practical solution to an issue that has been on your mind. Look at the facts, and avoid getting caught up in other people’s sense of urgency. You have what you need to create the sense of peace that’s needed right now.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). People from your past could resurface during this time in order to reconnect or resolve unfinished business. If single, avoid rushing into new relationships. Take things slow with anyone new you meet and reassess how you feel towards the end of next month. If attached, it is a good time to rekindle the romance in your partnership.

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

The New Moon on the 17th will be in Pisces, activating your 6th house of daily work and health. This will be a great time to quit addictions or unhealthy habits. It could be hard to get a new wellness routine to stick. Set your intentions now, and plan on getting started next month.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon,” and the March 31st Blue Moon will be your Sun sign! This Full Moon will likely feel energizing. It will be a good time to visit with loved ones and engage in fair negotiations. Teamwork and collaborative efforts will be celebrated.

" ["april"]=> string(3419) "

Relationships are a focus this month, and you could reconnect with someone from your past. It won’t be great timing to initiate a new relationship or agreement, but you can be successful at renegotiations and resolving the past.

Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. It’s possible you or a loved one will need to make amends for past actions. A forgiving energy will support these efforts.

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

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a favorable trine that begins this month and will be in effect for the next six months. You’re scheduled to enjoy an increased financial flow. You could benefit from the generosity of someone close to you. Don’t be afraid to accept assistance if it’s offered to you with love. Or, it’s possible that you’ll be in a position to help someone in need. These planets support your altruistic nature and the ability to make a difference in people’s lives. Consider volunteering for a cause you believe in.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 4th house of home and family (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). You’ll likely be evaluating your living situation and long-term security. It may be time to simplify your life in some way to help you maximize your resources. Take the time to review your priorities. Weed out activities and material items that don’t offer you fulfillment. This could be a month when you discover less is more. You’ll be happiest when you can focus on meaningful one-on-one time with family members instead of trying to visit with loved ones in large groups.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 2nd house of finance and self worth. Use the power of this Full Moon to go over your bank accounts and scrutinize your budget. It will be excellent timing to receive money owed or make payment arrangements for any outstanding debts you might have.

" ["may"]=> string(3283) "

You’ll be feeling the flow in your relationships and communications this month. Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, making for smoother interactions. If you’ve had a miscommunication with a loved one recently, this will be a good time to smooth things over and gain clarity. You’ll enjoy fresh energy and the ability to successfully team up with others on a shared goal. Your skills of diplomacy will help you to set healthy boundaries with others.

The spiritual Jupiter-Neptune trine continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. This is a lucky time for your financial flow, and you’ll attract what you want when you follow your instincts to help others. It’s a great time to create win-win situations! You will probably feel inclined to value your time and spiritual fulfilment over material resources now. Consider simplifying your life in some way that allows you to feel more at peace. There will be a healing energy present for your body and mind.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. This is a powerful New Moon to set intentions related to resolving debt, improving long-term relationships, and increasing your sense of self-worth. Have you been compromising too much of yourself for the sake of others? Look for ways to rebalance your close relationships so you aren’t doing more giving than receiving.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. This shift will put a focus on your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. You’re ready to try some new approaches to collaborating with others. You’ll have a good sense of what makes you feel secure, which can help you to cultivate successful relationships. However, you’ll need to be open-minded, and willing to see things from another person’s point-of-view. Any tendencies towards stubbornness could hold you back now. Free yourself from limiting beliefs!

The Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education on the 20th. The end of the month is a fantastic time to enjoy new people and experiences. Consider taking a class that interests you, or using your knowledge to teach others.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will encourage you to socialize and keep your mind active. Excursions, lectures, cultural events, and the appreciating the beauty of nature will be favored activities. If you’ve been working to reach an agreement with someone for business or in your personal life, you may enjoy a successful resolution around this time.

" ["june"]=> string(3182) "

The first half of June will be more favorable for new endeavors than the second. We’ve entered the shadow of Mars retrograde (June 26th - August 27th), so try to get anything new off the ground at the New Moon on the 13th. After that, focus on finishing what you’ve started. An old flame or former friend could re-enter your life. You may or may not be meant to get back together with an ex, but it’s likely you’re ready to make peace with the past.

The New Moon on the 13th will be in Gemini, which supports any intentions related to education and travel. You could be considering a trip abroad, taking classes, or both! Your mind is restless for new information and experience. Set some goals to give yourself some new intellectual challenges, such as learning a foreign language.

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.

Your 6th house of daily health and wellness will be activated during this Neptune retrograde cycle. Movement practices with a spiritual aspect such as yoga or tai chi will be particularly beneficial. You’ll be called to turn your attention inward and strengthen your mind-body connection.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. Take time to enjoy life with loved ones. You could receive special recognition from family members or others in your life. It’s possible that you’ll be honored with a party or award. You may be inspired to share your talents with others by performing or through other public displays of creativity.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. Don’t commit to new romantic partnerships during this time. If you’re single and meet someone new, take things slow and focus on building a friendship. You can use this time productively, even though you won’t be supported to initiate new ideas. It will be excellent timing to finish up any creative projects that have been sitting on the back burner!

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will activate your 4th house of home and family. Your efforts to create stability at home can show results and you may receive financial benefits based on your past efforts.

" ["july"]=> string(3029) "

This could be a socially active month, and you may be recognized for past achievements. The Sun will be in Cancer until the 21st, transiting your 10th house of public image. If you’re considering retirement, the astrology is favorable, as you’re being directed to focus on family and home at this time. If retired, your former co-workers may honor you in some way. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, and your social calendar will likely fill with invitations to parties and other events.  

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will promote new beginnings related to your public image as well as your home life. If you used to define yourself by the work you do, this Eclipse will help you to get in touch with your personal gifts. You’ll have the power to influence others in a positive way, regardless of your employment status. Because we’ll be under the influence of Mars and Mercury retrograde this month, realize that it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for some of your ideas to take shape.

Mercury goes retrograde in Leo on the 26th, but we’ll feel the effects as early as the 7th due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon. With Mercury currently in your 11th house of friendship and community, it will be an excellent time to reconnect with old friends! Reach out to significant people from your past and consider organizing a reunion. You may be inspired to re-join a creative and/or charitable group that you used to participate in.

An old flame could turn up, as Mars will be retrograde all month in your 5th house of romance and creativity. Mars, planet of passion and anger, often directs us to resolve unfinished business when it’s in retrograde. Do you need to forgive yourself or another for conflicts within a past or current relationship? There will be an emphasis on friendship, love, and stepping back to see the big picture. Be willing to release old emotional baggage and any need to dramatize your situation.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will shed light on a relationship with your romantic partner, or family members such as children or grandchildren. It’s a good time to get an objective perspective and find solutions that will be fair to everyone involved. You have wisdom to share with those of a younger generation regarding surrendering ego for a greater good.

Both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month, helping you to clear up any misunderstandings you’ve had with a friend. Mercury goes direct on the 19th. This planet of communication has been retrograde in your 11th house of friendship and community since July 26th, which may have caused some miscommunications and cancelled plans during the past few weeks. After the 19th, it will be easier to make clear connections. By next month, we’ll be completely clear of the shadow phase of this phenomenon and you’ll be supported to join new groups and expand your social circles.

Mars will station direct on the 27th, but we’ll be in the shadow phase of this cycle until October 8th. Best to take it slow and be prepared to retrace your steps, especially when it comes to romantic partnership or your home and family life.

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 your social circles and group activities in the coming six months. If single, there is the potential to meet a romantic partner through your circle of friends. You have a special ability to inspire a younger generation. Consider volunteering with groups that involve teaching or mentoring young people.

The 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 strengthen your relationships with family members and intimate partners. Your family members will find their relationship with you to be rewarding as you have a lot to offer them. Don’t resist their efforts to lend a helping hand. Neptune and Jupiter are also working together in a trine this month to offer you some financial mojo. Listen to your instincts when it comes to money matters.

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you could feel more introverted than usual. You’ll benefit from some alone time during the last days of the month to refresh your spirit. The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th will shine in your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. Seek spiritual meaning in some of the simple aspects of your daily life. Spending time in or around water will feel especially nurturing.

Mercury will clear the shadow from its most recent retrograde cycle on the 2nd, helping you to move forward with a group project. It will be ideal timing to collaborate with others and enjoy open lines of communication. 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 decisions about romance.

Mars will clear its retrograde shadow by October 8th, but Venus stations retrograde October 5th and is the ruler of love and money. Because we’re in the shadow of Venus retrograde all month, take care with financial matters. Avoid making major money-related decisions such as a big purchase or investment. Instead, focus on following through with a money-making idea that has been in the works for a long time. It will be great timing to reap the rewards of your past efforts!

The Sun will be in Virgo and your solar 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious through the 21st, creating a favorable environment for emotional healing. Daily practices such as prayer or meditation will help you to feel more balanced and secure in your sense of self. You’re ready to let go of past feelings or memories that no longer serve you.

On the 22nd the Sun will ingress into your Sun sign, 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 you to focus on your personal goals and bring a project to fruition.

Saturn will station direct on September 6th, which will help you to manifest goals and make long-term strategies for success. This year, Saturn is bringing you life lessons about relationships and long-term security. You may be restructuring your personal or shared finances in order to prepare for the future and the future of your children or grandchildren. You’ll be learning to balance your need to manage your resources with your need to enjoy some freedom. Don’t save it all for a rainy day!

This month’s New Moon in Virgo illuminates your 12th house of the subconscious. It will be an excellent time to rid yourself of bad habits. The Full Moon on the 24th will be in Aries and your 7th house of partnership. A romance could begin to blossom. Enjoy the moment and take things slowly.

Happy birthday, Libra! The Sun is in your sign through the 22nd and this month’s New Moon in Libra will help you to set goals for the coming year. If you were born October 6 - 10, of any year, the year ahead will offer you some new beginnings! While you’re being called to set some new goals for yourself, you’ll need to proceed slowly this month. Venus, your ruling planet, will station retrograde on the 5th, which encourages reflection and contemplation before making important decisions.

You may be feeling especially nostalgic for an old home or certain material possessions from your past. This is a great month to take stock of any personal mementos you own and make sure they are preserved in a special place. The timing is favorable for sharing stories about any items that have been in the family for a long time. You’ll also be recognizing what you value most. This may include your time, creative expression, and ability to make meaningful connections with loved ones.

Mars will clear the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. Set intentions to spend quality time with children or grandchildren, develop your creativity, and invite more fun into your life. When it comes to romance, you could feel inspired to act on passionate feelings, but you’ll be wise to establish a strong friendship with anyone new you meet. If you’re in a committed partnership, you’ll have the opportunity to break out of stale routines and rekindle your love.

The October 8th New Moon is in your sign, making it the most powerful New Moon of the year for you to set personal goals. Think about what you’d like to attract into your life as well as what you’d like to release. Keep in mind that Venus is retrograde this month, which will require you to be patient. The goals you declare at the New Moon could take until the end of the year to begin manifesting, and you may find yourself fine tuning your ideas between now and then.

Because Venus also rules money, and is traveling through your 2nd house of finance, you’ll be directed to review your accounts and long-term financial strategy during this Venus retrograde cycle. It won’t be good timing to make large purchases or important financial decisions. 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.

October’s Full Moon on the 24th is in Taurus and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. This Full Moon will help you identify what you need to feel secure emotionally and financially. If you’ve been working with a partner towards a shared goal, you could enjoy the results of your efforts around this time.
