Take time this month to stimulate your mind with books, lectures, and conversation with people from different walks of life. Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, which makes it a good time to reconnect with people from your past. You may also enjoy brushing up on existing skills with a refresher course.

This is a great month to enjoy new life experiences through travel, taking a class, or mingling with new people. The Leo Sun will shine in your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education through August 21st. Use these days to infuse your life with the excitement of exploration and acquiring knowledge. Because Mercury will be in retrograde, allow extra time to reach your destination. On August 22nd, the Sun will move into Virgo and your 10th house of public image. Your service to others could be recognized.

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury retrograde, which discourages initiating new action. With Mercury in retrograde through your 10th house of career and public image, you may have a chance to reconnect with former business contacts and you could receive recognition for a past or recent achievement.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, you’ll have the chance to reconnect with your creative life force. You could feel especially inspired to experience the arts. Attending plays, concerts, art exhibits, and other creative events will be especially nourishing.

Uranus is helping you to express your unique talents. It will be great timing to finish a creative project you’ve had on the back burner. Romance will also be afoot. You could be surprised by an old flame who makes a reappearance in your life. Enjoy feelings of love, but retain your sense of individuality. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, your courage and independence could be a good example to others.

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 9th house of adventure and higher education, as well as your 3rd house of communication and learning. You’re likely to gain valuable realizations through experiences with others. You’ll be putting together some of the knowledge you’ve acquired over the past six months and this Eclipse can provide the enlightenment you’ve been seeking. However, avoid getting too fanatical when presenting your point of view, as the Full Moon can elevate emotions and create an overly dramatic atmosphere.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to your belief systems. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. You could feel lighter when you clear out your closets and sell or give away items you’re no longer using. It might be time to let go of fears that are preventing you from taking the next steps to learn and grow. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be ready for new challenges.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3939) "

You’re slated for public recognition and leadership opportunities this month. It’s possible that you’ll be acknowledged for past achievements and/or public service. You could be asked to take on more responsibility within a group or organization. You’ll be wise to wait until the 20th to make a final decision, as Mercury is currently retrograde. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. Use the first few weeks of the month to wrap up any unfinished business to free up your time and energy for new ventures.

On the 20th, the New Moon in Virgo will be perfectly timed for new beginnings. With this New Moon in your 10th house of public image and leadership, you’ll be supported in efforts to step forward and make a difference in your community. It will be good timing to set your sights on a goal that makes use of your skills and experience to serve the public. You’ll also be supported in setting intentions related to your daily routines and wellness.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your 10th house of public image through September 21st. Others may look to you as a mentor or ask for assistance with career-related goals. You’ll be able to inspire people of a younger generation with your knowledge and life experiences. Consider public speaking, writing, or teaching as a way to help others.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Travel delays will be more likely, but a spirit of fun will help to facilitate “happy accidents”. Enjoy connecting with loved ones from the past. You could be thinking about taking classes to enrich your life. Courses that develop your creative skills will be especially supported.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will highlight home and family matters. Changes that have been brewing in this area of your life could come to a head now. The Full Moon accentuates what we need to transform by showing us what is, and isn’t, currently working for us. You may realize the need to let go of a family home to find a living situation that’s a better fit for your present lifestyle. Between September 19th and the end of November, the timing will be favorable for real estate transactions or changing your residence.

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. There will be an emphasis on attracting new friends and social groups into your life. Look back on the past six months and remember the activities that brought you the most joy. Make these endeavors a priority in the coming six months.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, offering support for financial stability. You’ve been in the process of transforming your relationship to money. The sense of responsibility and long-term planning you’ve developed is beginning to pay off. The next few months will be an ideal time to make some strategic decisions about your money. Your power lies in your ability to make educated choices. Choose your financial advisors wisely and do your own research before making investments.

By keeping a practical mindset, you’ll be able to create win-win situations. Long-term goals may be a focus and you’ll find it easier to make progress when you team up with a trusted ally.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children on October 5th.

You’re ripe for some self-realizations that can help you to improve your relationships. Plan some new adventures with grandchildren or other children in your life. It will be a great time to get in touch with how you’ve been feeling. Emotions are heightened at the Full Moon, so take a step back to get perspective if you get upset.

Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio and your 12th house of spirituality and intuition on the 9th.

" ["november"]=> string(3993) "

This will be a good month to wrap up works in progress, and plant the seeds for some new beginnings. Saturn, planet of commitment and life lessons, is finishing its journey through your Sun sign. If you were born December 15th - 21st, of any year, you’ll be experiencing the most potent effects of Saturn this month. It’s possible that you’ll feel the urge to commit to a personal project that ignites your passion. Romantic relationships could deepen or, if single, you may meet someone new and exciting.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will highlight your 6th house of daily work and wellness. Be good to yourself! It’s time for some rest and relaxation. Any healthy routines you’ve been following can yield results around this time. Congratulate yourself and consider how you can sustain healthy lifestyle changes. It will also be a great time for productivity and saving or earning money.

A trine between Saturn in your Sun sign and Uranus in Aries will be exact this month! This motivating astrology has been at work all year, and you’ll be able to enjoy it for the next six weeks. It’s likely that you’ve already made some positive life changes, and this month can be a great time to take your ideas to the next level. What have you been procrastinating? Children or other loved ones could help you to make progress. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. However, the emphasis will be on your independence and personal freedom. Look for ways to free up more of your time to pursue your passions.

Jupiter will be in a favorable trine to Neptune all month, which will be exact by the last few days of November. The Jupiter-Neptune trine is one of the prevailing aspects during 2018, but we’re getting a sneak preview over the next few months. You’ll benefit from the healing qualities of this trine, which are activating your subconscious. It will be an excellent time to work with a counselor, therapist, or spiritual teacher. You’re being called to slow down and spend more time in contemplation, so that you’re able to identify and release negative thinking. A family relationship may be in need of your attention.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality. This will be an excellent time to set intentions related to intimate partnerships, psychological healing, breaking addictive habits, and creative expression.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and it could be difficult to focus during the days surrounding this event. Therefore, avoid making important decisions November 20th - 24th. Give yourself time to consider your options and make final decisions before or after these dates, if possible. You may be facing changes to your living situation. Wait until after the 24th, if possible, before finalizing real estate transactions or contracting work for home repairs.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into your sign! The coming weeks will be a great time to socialize and visit new locations. Follow your sense of adventure and encourage others to engage in some spontaneous fun!

" ["december"]=> string(2791) "

Mercury will be retrograde in your Sun sign this month, making it an especially powerful time to reflect on personal goals and finish what you started. Don’t try to force new ideas forward. It’s not time for new beginnings, but instead, a time to slow down and assess your current situation. Miscommunications will be more likely, so take time to clarify your intentions with others. Patience, and a good dose of humor will also yield the best results!

During the second half of the month, you might turn your attention to financial issues. It will be a good time to review your accounts and take a conservative approach to spending. If you have big ticket items to purchase, wait until after January 5th, when we’re clear of Mercury’s retrograde influence. If you can’t wait, make sure you get a good warranty and clearly understand the return policy. The Winter Solstice on the 21st will be the optimal time to let go of mental blocks to allowing abundance into your life.

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 7th house of partnership. This is a good time to gain insight about yourself and others. If attached, your partner could act as a mirror to show you changes you’d like to make within yourself. If single, it will be a fun time to get out and meet new people. Mercury will be stationing retrograde on day of the Full Moon, so communications could get scrambled. Avoid jumping into new relationships this month. Enjoy being in the moment with anyone new, and don’t be surprised if loved ones from your past resurface to resolve unfinished business.

The New Moon on the 18th is in your Sun sign! This New Moon signifies your Astrological New Year, and its energy will support your goals for the coming year. You’re ripe for new growth and ready to shed the habits and beliefs that no longer serve you. Set your sights on what you’d like to experience and achieve in 2018.

Saturn moves into Capricorn--and your 2nd house of finance and self worth--on December 19th. Over the next two-and-a-half years, you’ll be learning to take charge of your resources and create a greater sense of security for yourself and loved ones. It could feel as if you have to “get serious” and make some sacrifices to achieve your desired results. Know that Saturn’s energy is fair, and any efforts you put in will be rewarded. Be willing to admit what you don’t know and seek a respected financial advisor, if necessary.

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will help you get in touch with your feelings and connect with loved ones. Some issues may have been buried because you or others were reluctant to “rock the boat.” This Full Moon will help to shine a light on hidden emotions and facilitate psychological healing. Look at your feelings with honesty and compassion in order to make some positive changes. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, take time out and revisit the topics on your mind a few days after the Full Moon has passed.

We’ll clear the shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde by the 10th, which facilitates forward momentum. Therefore, for best results, wait until after this date to set your New Year’s resolutions. This month’s New Moon on the 15th will be in Capricorn, supporting your goals related to retirement, financial planning, and your future security.

Uranus stations direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. You may have some creative ideas that have been brewing for the past few months. Now that Uranus will be moving forward, it’s a great time to make a plan of action. Art projects, music, theatrical performance, and work that involves children will be supported activities.

It will also be an exciting time for your love life! If attached, it will be a good time to break out of any relationship ruts and encourage a partner to pursue a personal dream. If single, you could meet someone who is very different than you. The opposites attract rule will be in full effect!

Jupiter and Neptune will be working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. These powerful planets will be generating luck and opportunity, but they’ll be operating behind the scenes. You’re scheduled for personal and spiritual growth in 2018. It will be an excellent time to heal from the past, particularly related to your early childhood or family. Consider implementing a regular meditation or prayer practice if you aren’t doing so already.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. This will be a good time to receive important information, and you could find yourself in the role of teacher or student. You’re ready for some new adventures, and it could feel as if you’re being rewarded for your past efforts. Anything you’ve been working on since the Eclipses in August 2017 will be ripe for growth. Your generous nature will give you the ability to help a variety of people from different walks of life.

Your social life will be buzzing this month, Sagittarius. You will be a magnet for new friends and the people who are already in your life will want to spend time with you. The New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will help you to make connections with people who celebrate your unique way of seeing the world. The relationships you’ll develop in the coming months will be based on your authenticity. It could feel liberating to drop any sense of false pretense and spend time with people who feel comfortable with themselves. Enjoy laughing in the face of convention with kindred spirits who appreciate you.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. You might be transforming your values in some way. Perhaps the activities or material possessions that used to hold meaning for you seem less fulfilling. You’re due for a spiritual awakening that can help you to let go of anything superfluous, and focus on your divine purpose. Spending time in meditation or prayer can help you to access valuable information from your higher power.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. During the first two weeks of the month, get out and mingle! You’ll thrive off the exchange of ideas and information with others. Joining clubs or groups will be favored, especially if you are working towards a humanitarian cause.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 4th house of home and family. The second half of the month could have a quieter feel. You’ll need to recharge by taking some peaceful time to yourself. Make an area of your living space cozier using soothing colors and decor that evokes relaxation.

Both Mercury and Venus will move into the sign of Pisces mid-month. After Venus, planet of love and money, ingresses into Pisces on the 10th, you’ll attract appreciation from a family member. A spirit of generosity will prevail. Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will facilitate healing and forgiveness for yourself and others.

" ["march"]=> string(3505) "

This will be a great month to reconnect with children, grandchildren, romantic partners, and other loved ones. You’ll also be supported in efforts to finish a creative project.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. You could feel eager for a fresh start, but it won’t be the right time for new beginnings just yet. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Use this month to tend to existing situations. Figure out how to simplify your life so you can feel free to embrace new adventures towards the end of next month.

The month begins with a Full Moon in Virgo on the 1st. You could be recognized for a job well done, or your past achievements. It’s time to take charge and demonstrate your capabilities. Others could look to you for leadership. You may be ready to pass the torch to someone eager to take over in a professional or volunteer setting. Your ability to leave things in good order will be celebrated.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). A loved one from your past could resurface around this time. It’s possible that you’ll have unfinished business to resolve. Use the available energies to deal with long-standing disputes in a productive manner. If single, it won’t be great timing for new romantic partnerships. If you meet someone new around this time, take things slow and see how you feel towards the end of next month. You’ll have the motivation needed to complete a creative project that’s been waiting in the wings.

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 4th house of home and family. Use the power of this New Moon to bring loving energy into your household. Add soothing colors to your decor to promote peaceful feelings. It’s a great time to dedicate a part of your living area to spiritual practices by creating an altar and/or area for meditation and prayer.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon,” and the March 31st Blue Moon will be in Libra. This will be an excellent time to get together with loved ones. You could be negotiating a fair agreement with a personal or professional contact. If you’ve worked to maintain a harmonious relationship, you’ll be rewarded with a win-win outcome.

" ["april"]=> string(3472) "

Enjoy reconnecting with children, grandchildren, and other loved ones this month. You’ll be encouraged to reach out to people from your past and relive old memories. Don’t be surprised if an old flame or close friend resurfaces in your life. This month is all about resolving unfinished business! Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. Keep things light if you meet someone new this month, and postpone any commitments until May.

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 a helpful time to rest and restore your spirit. Sagittarians have a love of adventure, and it can be difficult for you to slow down. However, you’ll benefit from spending some quiet time at home. It’s possible you need to address an issue related to housing or being more comfortable in your own home. If you will be traveling, consider spiritual destinations or vacations that focus on health/wellness and relaxation.

Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto have been at work in your 2nd house of finance and self worth this year, and they’ll both station retrograde this month (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). You’ll have the opportunity to maximize your resources. It may not be the optimal time to make big purchases or financial decisions, but you will feel empowered when you create and stick to a budget. That’s not to say you can’t enjoy financial gain during this time. However, it’s more likely to come from an investment you’ve already made rather than a new endeavor. 

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 12th house of subconscious, spirituality, and intuition. Listen to your gut, as you’ll be especially tuned in to your inner wisdom. It will be a good time to write down your dreams and trust that you know what’s best for yourself. You could gain valuable insights about a close relationship or your health and wellbeing.

" ["may"]=> string(3480) "

Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, offering smooth sailing for creative endeavors, romantic partnership, and having fun with the young people in your life! The timing is right to participate in activities that bring you joy and share special  memories with children or grandchildren. If you’re in a committed partnership, it could be easier to state your needs now. If single, it will be great timing to attract someone who admires your independent spirit.

The spiritual Jupiter-Neptune trine continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. This will be a favorable time for real estate transactions and improving your living situation. You’ll also have the chance to heal from the past and resolve any conflicts with family members. You’re ready to feel more ease in your home life, and you may need to let go of preconceived ideas about how to achieve security. Pay particular attention to your dreams this month, as you could receive valuable messages. You’ll also benefit from spiritual practices such as meditation or prayer. Don’t try to go it alone. Some of your current challenges will require you to trust in others.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 6th house of daily work, health, and wellness. This is a fantastic New Moon to set intentions related to initiating healthy habits and taking charge of your time. Make self-care a priority and set small, realistic goals that you can achieve on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. You’re due for some changes that will help you to break free from bad habits. You may feel the need to incorporate some new activities into your daily life. If you’re in the workforce, you may desire more personal freedom, and it could be a time to consider retirement. If retired, you may be rethinking the best way to achieve long term fulfillment. Your financial situation as well as your sense of inner peace will be factors. It’s possible that you’ll want to streamline your life so you can spend more time enjoying the relationships and activities that bring you joy.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, highlighting your 7th house of partnership. It will be an excellent time to attend social gatherings with a partner. If single, you’ll be primed to meet someone interesting who captivates you with their intelligence and ability to make lively conversation.

The Full Moon on the 29th will be in your Sun sign! This is a wonderful time to feel gratitude for everything you’ve enjoyed in the past moon cycle, and the past year.

" ["june"]=> string(2943) "

Partnership is a focus this month, whether you’re attached or single. You’ll be called to contemplate your communication style and how to best express your needs to others. The New Moon on the 13th is in Gemini, supporting intentions related to romantic partnership, friendship, and business agreements. If single, you could meet someone who captures your attention with their interesting outlook on life.

Avoid making major decisions between the 16th and the 20th, as Neptune will station retrograde on the 18th. The days surrounding Neptune’s station can cause your mind to process information more slowly. Neptune is the planet of the subconscious, and when it’s retrograde (between June 18th and November 24th), you’ll have more access to your intuition and the spiritual realm. After the 20th, you’ll likely be more clear headed and better able to tune into your inner wisdom. Take some quiet time to yourself to prepare your subconscious mind to release old thought patterns and heal from the past.

The coming months will provide you an opportunity to heal from your past, including memories that may stem from early childhood. You’re ready to simplify your life emotionally, and materially. Clearing your home of clutter can help you to achieve a peaceful state of mind. Consider dedicating an area of your home to meditation or sitting in relaxation. Use soothing colors and objects that evoke a connection to spirit.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. This is an excellent day to gather with loved ones and celebrate life. It’s ideal timing for vacations, family reunions, or other outings. Put off any chores you may have and acknowledge your gratitude for others by sharing special time together.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. If you’ve been involved in negotiations or other important communications, you may need to take a step back. It won’t be good timing to force your ideas forward. Instead, see what you can revise in your existing agreements and research options to pursue after August 27th.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th is activating your 2nd house of finance! If you’ve been saving or investing, you could see some financial gain around this time. You’re likely to receive rewards from your past hard work. If you’ve been needing to stick to a budget and cut back on spending, you’ll receive a cosmic message that can help steer you back on track.

" ["july"]=> string(2971) "

Use this month to slow down and connect one-on-one with special people in your life. The Sun will be in Cancer through the 21st, transiting your 8th house of intimate partnership and shared finance. It’s an excellent time to review your accounts and strategize for the future security of yourself and loved ones. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. This is an ideal time for vacations, taking a class that inspires your creativity, and connecting with children or grandchildren.

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will support intentions related to strengthening your emotional bond with a partner or family member. Use this extra powerful New Moon to set intentions related to self-care, nurturing others, following your intuition, and releasing feelings of jealousy.

Because we’re under the influence of Mars and Mercury retrograde this month, it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, to fully develop the relationship transformation you desire.

Mercury goes retrograde in Leo on the 26th, making it a great time to brush up on old skills. If you used to sing, dance, play an instrument, or create art, consider taking a refresher course to get re-inspired. Travel could be tricky, as delays are more likely. But you won’t have to cancel your plans! If you have a trip planned, embrace a sense of adventure. You may experience some unscheduled fun due to a last-minute change in your itinerary.

You’ll likely enjoy connecting with people from the past this month, as Mars will be retrograde in your 3rd house of communication and learning. Use the available energy to resolve old conflicts. If an old flame resurfaces in your life now, you may have the chance for closure or completing unfinished business. Avoid making major relationship decisions until after Mars stations direct on August 27th.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th offers enlightening information regarding an important relationship.

Both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month, helping you to communicate more clearly with others. The latter part of the month will be good for teaching or learning.

Mercury goes direct on the 19th. This planet of information processing has been retrograde in your 9th house of higher education and philosophy since July 26th, which may have caused you to question some of what you were taught earlier in life. After the 19th, it will be easier to assimilate new belief systems and let go of thought processes that no longer serve you.

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 make necessary changes related to money, work, and/or health routines. Timing is favorable for retiring or restructuring your schedule to allow for more personal freedom. Commit to yourself by making your physical wellbeing a priority.

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you could be recognized for your service to others. The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th will shine in your 4th house of home and family. Consider hosting a gathering in your home. People will be in the mood for music and dance!

" ["december"]=> string(3500) "

Happy birthday, Sagittarius! You’re slated for a year of personal growth and extra luck! Last month, Jupiter moved into your Sun sign, where it will remain for the next year. If you were born November 28th - December 4th, of any year, you’ll feel the positive effects of Jupiter in your sign most strongly this month. All Sagittarians can enjoy some forward momentum related to personal projects and relationships by the end of the month, thanks to both Mercury and Venus completing their retrograde cycles.

This month’s New Moon (December 7th Eastern Standard Time / December 6th Pacific Time) will be in your Sun sign, making it a powerful time to set goals for the coming year. This is your personal astrological new year! Set intentions related to self-improvement, strengthening your body, embracing a sense of adventure, and expanding your consciousness.

It could take until the New Year for your ideas to gain traction, as we’ll be working our way through the end of the current Mercury retrograde cycle (November 16th - December 6th). Mercury moves into your Sun sign on December 12, lending mental clarity. You’ll likely feel more focused about the details of a plan after this date, but wait until after Mercury clears its retrograde shadow on December 24th to take bold new actions and/or make important decisions.

Venus will spend most of the month in the sign of Scorpio and your 12th house of dreams, intuition, and spirituality. Your powers of perception and innate instincts are strong right now. Listen to your inner wisdom. Take time to meditate or pray in order to receive important messages from your psyche and/or a higher power. On the 17th, Venus clears the shadow phase of her last retrograde cycle (October 5th - November 16th). After this date, you’ll have the cosmic “green light” to make relationship-related decisions or commitments.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Capricorn, marking the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. No matter where in the world you live, the December 21st solstice is a time to reflect on the previous year and slow your pace to work with deliberate intention. Harness your resources and set your sights on personal goals. Sagittarians will be especially supported in their efforts to maximize money and other material resources.

This month’s Full Moon in Cancer on the 22nd lights up your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. If you find yourself feeling overly emotional, consider whether events from your past are skewing your perception of what’s happening now. Use the available energy to acknowledge and release pain from the past. It is a good time to make peace with yourself and loved ones, but you may need to wait until a few days after the Full Moon has passed to address sensitive topics with others.
