Let yourself shine this month, Scorpio. Others want to celebrate your achievements, and you should let them. After all, you deserve it. The Leo Sun will highlight your 10th house of public image through August 21st, making it a great time to put your best foot forward. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo and your 11th house of friendship and community. The remainder of August will be ideal for collaborating on group projects and working in your community.

While you often enjoy keeping a low profile, this month you may be in high demand. You’re scheduled to learn how to balance your public and personal life more effectively. You may be considering changing your place of residence. Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th, so it won’t be advisable to make life-changing decisions at this time. Instead, research your options and re-evaluate your situation in mid-September.

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 11th house of friendship and community, you’re likely to reconnect with friends or associates from your past. Group activities could feel especially energizing.

With Uranus going retrograde this month, you’ll have the chance to take charge of your time. It’s possible that others have been putting demands on your schedule, leaving little time for the things you’d like to do. In the coming months, you may be craving more freedom. Take the opportunity to be spontaneous and express your creativity in new ways. It will be a good time to break out of old ruts and return to some of the activities that make you feel vibrant. By the time Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, it will be apparent to others that you’ve been breaking out of some of your old patterns.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th will activate your 10th house of public image, as well as your 4th house of home and family. Both of these areas of life could feel active around this time. Others may look to you for leadership. Keep in mind that Lunar Eclipses can stir up drama. Set a good example for others by maintaining a logical perspective.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo will initiate endings and beginnings related to career and/or public image. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. It’s possible that you are ready to close a chapter of your career, but this may open the door to exciting new possibilities. This could require letting go of self-doubt and fear. You’ll be initiating a new phase of life over the next six months that will encourage you to let more of your talents shine. Research opportunities to share your gifts with a larger audience. After mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears, you’ll be well positioned to move forward with new plans.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3509) "

Don’t be surprised if someone from your past resurfaces this month, if they haven’t already appeared in August! The current astrology, including Mercury retrograde, emphasizes reconnecting with former friends, partners, and other loved ones. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. During the first few weeks of the month, enjoy renewing your relationships from the past. However, wait until after the 19th to make major decisions or long-term commitments.

The Virgo New Moon on the 20th is perfectly timed to support new beginnings. We’ll be clear of Mercury’s retrograde influence-- making it a powerful time to initiate new relationships and set intentions related to partnership, friendship, and humanitarian efforts. It’s a great time to dream big, then focus on the details. It’s possible that you’ll need to take small steps over time to work towards your desired result.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your 11th house of friendship and community through September 21st. This could be a socially active time where you connect with others through shared goals. Group projects and activism will be supported. Join with others who share your values and desire to make the world a better place.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 10th house of public image. You could gain recognition for a past achievement. It will be a good time to finish a creative project and share it with others. Children and/or grandchildren may play a starring role in your life during these days.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will shine in your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. The days around this Full Moon could feel nostalgic. Enjoy spending time with loved ones. A creative project may come to fruition around this time. While the energy of this Full Moon will support love, compassion, and forgiveness, it can also intensify your emotional state. You may need to let go of feelings from the past.

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. Take stock of the past six months and determine what you’d like to attract into your life for the next six months. It won’t be a time to go it alone. Teamwork will be your key to success!

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, offering support for empowered communications. It’s possible that you’ve been afraid to speak your truth for fear of “rocking the boat”. Pluto is calling for you to take responsibility for your needs and happiness. Feeling in control doesn’t happen by dominating others. You’ll be at your strongest when you can calmly and gently stand your ground.

This month may feel busier than the past two, as the current astrology is prompting you to move forward with anything you may have been procrastinating. Your social life could be busy, and new or existing romances will be favored. It will be easy to see your next steps as you’ll be feeling clear about your current situation. Jupiter will ingress into your Sun sign this month, ushering in a year of luck and opportunity ahead! You’re primed for personal growth, new experiences, and meaningful relationships.

The month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 11th house of friendship and community. You’ll likely receive some social invitations and the timing will be right to bring new people into your life. If you’re in an existing partnership, get out and about or volunteer for a worthy cause together. Single Scorpios could meet someone special through their circle of friends. You won’t need to come up with the perfect words to make a good impression. Others will be able to see through your actions how much you care.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 6th house of daily work and wellness on October 5th. This will be an ideal time to assess your schedule and physical wellness. It’s possible that you need more time for yourself in order to make self-care a priority. Regularly scheduled exercise, rest, and meals can help you feel more balanced. Don’t be afraid to say no to demands on your time that detract from your wellbeing.

Jupiter will ingress into your Sun sign on the 9th, which will bring you good luck in the coming year! During the time Jupiter will travel through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you’re primed for personal growth and experiences that help you to connect with your spirituality. Classes, books and lectures about philosophy and other cultures will feel especially satisfying. You could feel as if you’re embarking on a new chapter of life, and the renewed sense of discovery will be uplifting. This will be a good year to let go of regrets from the past and feel gratitude for all you have. Your sense of optimism will be a gift to yourself and others. You might want to get all you can out of life right now, but exercise some restraint. Resist the urge to overdo it or overindulge.

The New Moon will be in Libra and your 12th house of spirituality and subconscious on the 19th. Use the power of this New Moon to initiate spiritual practices that balance your mind. This will also be an excellent New Moon to initiate partnerships and invite new friends into your life. Let go of old belief systems that could be limiting your ability to engage in loving relationships.

On October 23, the Sun will move into your sign! For the rest of the month, you’ll be in touch with your needs and able to express yourself in a way that captivates others. Spend time with loved ones and allow the people in your life to celebrate you.

" ["november"]=> string(3916) "

You’re well-positioned to receive beneficial opportunities and celebrate new beginnings this month. The New Moon on the 18th will be in your Sun sign, offering you the chance to set goals for the coming year! In addition, lucky Jupiter is in your Sun sign for the next year. If you were born October 28 - November 3, you’ll be ready to experience the greatest amount of personal growth.

Partnership will be a focus during the days around the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th. Issues related to security will likely emerge. If attached, you may wish to have a practical conversation with a partner about your relationship. It will be favorable timing for single Scorpios to attract someone new. Enjoy getting out to share a cultural event with friends.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will benefit your daily work, health, and finances. This trine has been in effect all year, and during this time you’ve been learning to manage your resources and claim more of your independence. This month, you can take advantage of this astrology by committing to a long-term goal. What have you been wanting to do for some time that would require you to invest time and/or money? The timing is great to make a plan for travel or other new life adventures. It’s possible you’ll need to work for what you want and conserve your spending. But, the changes you implement now can help you achieve more freedom in your daily life.

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. Because Jupiter is in your Sun sign, you’ll be feeling this aspect more so than some of your peers. You’ll be tuned in to your intuition and information from your higher power. This will be a highly creative time period - take advantage of the astrological energies and paint, write, dance, or make music!

The November 18th New Moon will be in your Sun sign, signifying your astrological new year. Set goals for the coming year, as you’ll have strong support for new beginnings related to self-improvement, personal growth, and emotional/spiritual development.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and you could find it 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. It will be a productive time for personal creative pursuits. But, avoid committing to new projects or relationships until after the 24th.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. You’ll be feeling optimistic about money, and will be able to reap the rewards of your past efforts. You could be offered money or other material gains in exchange for your knowledge/expertise.

" ["december"]=> string(2895) "

This is a powerful month to review your budget and get finances in order. Mercury is retrograde through your 2nd house of resources,  promoting efforts to manage your money. Consider taking a class on investments or long-term savings strategies. If you owe others money, make a plan to repay your debt. And, it will be an ideal time to collect from anyone who owes you. This month’s New Moon will also highlight financial goals. Because Mercury retrograde is in effect, avoid making major purchases or financial decisions. Research your options and move forward with your plans after January 5th.

Learning and communication will be a focus for 2018. You’re slated to learn new skills and develop your ability to reach others through the spoken word or writing. The Winter Solstice on the 21st will prompt your sense of nostalgia and tradition. It will be great timing to write a memoir or a collection of family stories. Gather with loved ones to share your memories.

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. Mercury will be stationing retrograde today, increasing the likelihood of misunderstandings. You could receive information about a shared investment or other assets. Review the facts carefully before reacting emotionally. The Full Moon could make circumstances feel more dramatic than they actually are. It will be a good time to learn more about a loved one. Take time to have an intimate one-on-one conversation and set your intention to listen without judgement.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Make wishes regarding money and security. You’ll also have the New Moon’s support to invest in yourself. You may have the opportunity to earn money by teaching or utilizing a specialized skill. Be open to the idea of taking classes or getting any training necessary to capitalize on your skills. Even if you’re an expert in your field, it will be important to keep up with the times.

Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19th, which will initiate a two-and-a-half year transit through your 3rd house of communication and learning. Be prepared to take a hard look at some of your core beliefs and philosophies. You’re going to be tested, and some of what you thought to be “true” could turn out to be false in your current situation. You’ll be responsible for researching the information you hear and creating your own code of ethics. You have the leadership skills you need to guide yourself in the right direction.

" } [1]=> array(13) { ["senior-horoscope-year"]=> string(4) "2018" ["january"]=> string(3317) "

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will shine a light on your desire for new life experiences. You may be dreaming of foreign travel, or the opportunity to meet people from different cultures. You have lots to offer others, and you may be stepping into a mentorship or teaching role. Relocation is not out of the question in 2018 and you could be pondering a real estate transaction. Take note of how you’re feeling now as you begin to form a strategy for the coming year. Your decision-making process may involve more intuition and emotion than sticking to the facts and figures.

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 communication, teaching, learning new skills, and making new social or business connections.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. You may be undergoing changes that require you to adjust your daily routines. For example, you may be starting a new wellness regimen or making a transition in your work life. The changes you’re making now are designed to help you feel more free, but you could be feeling frustrated with current limitations. Focus on what you can do, rather than what you can’t. Innovative thinking will help you to take charge of your life.

Jupiter and Neptune will be working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. Lucky Jupiter is in your Sun sign this year, and Scorpios born November 10-12, of any year, will feel the greatest benefit. Take advantage of opportunities for personal growth that come through your willingness to put yourself in front of others.

In other words, don’t try to hide yourself from the world! Some of your dreams require you to step a bit out of your comfort zone and share some of your talents and ideas with others. It’s also a fortuitous time for romantic partnership, but you’ll need to be open to sharing your feelings.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. This Eclipse will offer more encouragement to step forward into the public eye. Others may look to you for leadership and it will be a great time to get recognized for your accomplishments. Projects begun around the August 2017 Eclipses could show significant development now.

" ["february"]=> string(3895) "

This month will focus on your home and family life. You could be seeking a stronger sense of community and/or more freedom. If you’ve been isolated from others, the New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will support new beginnings that can offer a sense of belonging. You could be ready for a new living situation, or just need to make some changes to your current household. It will be important for you to maintain as much personal freedom as possible, but that doesn’t mean you can’t accept support from others.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. Because Jupiter is currently in your Sun sign, you’re primed for personal growth this year. Scorpios born November 12th to 18th, of any year, will receive the greatest amount of luck and opportunity. You’re due for some mental “house cleaning” that can help you to release negative patterns. It’s never too late to change your attitudes. Think about ways you can open yourself to more positive experiences and release limiting beliefs that may be holding you back.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. Use the first two weeks of the month to socialize. Family parties and events will be favored, but you can also feel uplifted in the presence of friends who feel like family. Consider hosting a party in your home.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 5th house of romance and creativity. The last two weeks of the month will be a great time to enjoy creative activities with loved ones. Children or grandchildren may be a particular source of joy. Nurture the creative instincts within the young people in your life.

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, your creativity and charm will be appealing to others. Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will help you to make romantic connections.

" ["march"]=> string(3259) "

This is a good month to re-establish routines that help you to feel grounded. The early part of the month could be socially busy, but as the month progresses, you’ll be encouraged to take some time for yourself and renew your spirit.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. However, it won’t be the right timing for new beginnings just yet. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Work on finishing anything you’ve started to clear space for what you’d like to accomplish in the future.

The month begins with a Full Moon on the first, in the sign of Virgo. Group projects will be supported, and your efforts could be recognized and rewarded. Someone close to you might be in need of some practical assistance such as running errands or organizing a space in their home.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th).  Initiate new projects before the 8th, if possible. You can use this Mercury retrograde cycle to restart any type of wellness routines that you’ve let slide. Avoid starting any new type of physical exercise. Instead, revert to the types of physical movement that have helped you feel strong in the past. Don’t worry if you’re not as fast or strong as you used to be. The act of getting up and moving is what’s important!

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 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. This is a wonderful time to make intentions related to making a strong connection with children or grandchildren in your life. In addition, it will be a good time to pick up a creative hobby that you’ve had on the back burner.

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, a sign representing harmony and balance. It’s possible that you’re in need of some inner peace. Don’t resist the help that others may offer you. It’s likely you’ve been giving more than receiving lately, and it’s time to renew.

" ["april"]=> string(3494) "

If you’ve been trying to get organized or get back in shape, April is your month! You can maximize the power of Mercury retrograde in your 6th house of daily routines and wellness by reinstating some healthy habits that you may have let slip. Additionally, it will be a fantastic month to clear the clutter, sort through paperwork, and return correspondence.

Mercury is retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. Finish what you’ve started; and if you’ve had a conflict with anyone close to you, take the time to clear up any misunderstandings and make peace.

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. Lucky Jupiter is blessing your Sun sign this year, and if you were born November 15 - 17, you’re in store for the most opportunities for personal growth this year. The Jupiter-Neptune trine will help you forgive yourself and others so you can focus on moving forward. The next six months will be a particularly good time for creative projects and romance! You’ll also benefit from some alone time that allows you to reconnect with yourself and your higher power.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 3rd house of communication and learning (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). This will be a great month to brush up on your skills, or teach what you know to others. You could feel motivated to put your accumulated knowledge and life experience to work for you, or document your achievements. Consider writing down significant memories, or making an audio recording of stories from your life.

The Full Moon on the 29th will be in your Sun Sign! Enjoy the company of loved ones and celebrate any recent accomplishments. You’ll be able to get clear about your feelings and might feel inspired to have a heart to heart with someone special. If emotions feel too overwhelming, wait until a few days after the Full Moon to initiate important conversations.

" ["may"]=> string(3693) "

This is a great month for health-related goals and time management. Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, offering smooth sailing for new changes to your schedule and daily life. Look for ways to improve your wellness through routine practices such as exercise, healthy eating, and time to pursue your personal goals. You’ll enjoy an extra boost of motivation, and new habits started this month are likely to stick.

The spiritual Jupiter-Neptune trine continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. Jupiter is spending most of 2018 in your Sun sign, making this a particularly lucky year for you! If you were born November 7 - 11, of any year, you’ll feel especially in the flow this month. You’re being asked to imagine the best case scenario in order to re-dream a vision for yourself. Your Sun sign is known for being a realist, sometimes to the point of envisioning everything that could go wrong. Don’t forget to consider what’s going well, and how that could help you in the near future.

This month’s Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be provide support for relationship-related intentions. It’s good timing to commit to a romantic or platonic partnership. If single, the timing will be right to meet someone who makes you feel secure. Set some goals to improve your relationship with yourself and make choices that honor your self-worth.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. Uranus will be traveling through your 7th house of partnership for approximately the next seven years, signaling a time to reinvent some of your relationships. Uranus is the planet of innovation and freedom, but it will be expressed through the stable Earth sign of Taurus. The result is the potential for long-term commitments that also meet your need for independence. It’s good timing to explore your own interests and develop a partnership that allows you and your significant other to experience personal growth through separate activities.

If you were born October 25 - 27, of any year, Uranus will directly oppose your Sun this year and you’re likely to feel the strongest urge to make important life changes. Do your best to stay relaxed and realize that you’ll feel most successful when you implement gradual change. Avoid making rushed decisions that could have significant long-term effects.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, activating your subconscious  mind. The latter part of the month will be a favorable time to engage in emotional, spiritual, and philosophical discussions. Conversations with loved ones will be especially useful, and it could be beneficial to talk with a therapist to release emotional baggage or ineffective ways of thinking.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. This is a great time to see your efforts pay off! If you’ve been saving for a trip, this could be the time to put together your travel plans.

" ["june"]=> string(3249) "

If you were born November 7 - 11, of any year, you’ll be graced with some extra good luck this month. Jupiter, planet of luck and opportunity, is in the sign of Scorpio, helping to give your Sun sign the confidence to take on new challenges. Jupiter’s gifts in your sign are best cultivated by letting go of old ideas and/or material items in order to make room for new energy in your life.

The New Moon on the 13th will be in Gemini, offering support for communication with both loved ones and yourself. It’s possible you’ve been in denial about a situation or relationship. It can be very helpful to write your feelings in a journal to get clear on what you need before initiating a conversation with others. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to emotional healing and healthy relationships.

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

You’ll have lots of creative inspiration available. Take advantage of Neptune’s energy and make time to paint, draw, dance, sing, make music, or participate in any activity that helps you express your joy. Spending time with children or grandchildren can help you access your playful nature and enjoy living in the moment.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. The timing will be ideal for family vacations or other adventures with loved ones. Leave chores for another day and spend the Solstice in celebration!

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. Try to avoid real estate transactions during this time period. If you must move, keep a flexible attitude, as delays could occur. It will be fantastic timing for family reunions. The focus will be on finishing what you started. Use the available energy to complete all those home-related projects that have been waiting for your attention.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th highlights learning, communication, and leadership. You could be called upon to use your writing, speaking, or teaching skills to help others. It’s possible that you’ll be seen as an expert in a specific career field who can serve as a mentor to others. If you’re retired, you could enjoy reconnecting with former work colleagues socially.

" ["july"]=> string(2968) "

Keep an open mind regarding travel plans this month. We’ll be under the influence of both Mars and Mercury retrograde, which increases the likelihood of delays and unexpected changes in plans. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t travel!  Just be willing to go with the flow.

The Sun is in Cancer through the 21st, transiting your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Trips that involve returning home to your roots or learning about the history of an area will be supported. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, and your 10th house of public image. You could be recognized for your past achievements or have the opportunity to mentor others.

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will inspire ideas regarding future travel plans and your need for personal growth. It’s possible you’ve been in a rut and need to break out of your comfort zone. You might have had responsibilities related to work or home that have kept you from pursuing a dream that could offer you emotional and spiritual fulfillment. Because of the retrograde influence 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 because we’ll feel the effects as early as the 7th, it won’t be a great month for new beginnings. If you’re retired, you could be asked to speak or present for your former co-workers. If you’re in the workforce, you may be considering retirement or stepping back from some of your responsibilities. Don’t force major decisions at this time. You may have more clarity after August 19th, when Mercury will station direct.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will also activate your 4th house of home and family. You’re likely to have a realization about your living situation. Eclipses often reveal information we need to make a necessary life change. You may need to release some sentimental emotions in order to make a sensible choice for your future.
