array(2) { [0]=> 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.

It is a good month to attend to household repairs and chores as Mars will be retrograde all month in your 4th house of home and family. You may also need to resolve a conflict with family members. Use the available energy to take an objective approach and be willing to let go of emotions from the past.

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.

" ["august"]=> string(3319) "

Both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month, helping you to represent yourself more accurately to others. It’s possible that your sense of identity has shifted, either through a change in your professional status, or because you’ve recently begun to express a different facet of yourself.

Mercury goes direct on the 19th. After this date, communications are likely to flow more easily. If you’ve been considering a business proposition, you could feel some momentum to move forward by the end of the month. And although Mars stations direct on the 27th, we will remain 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 your home and family life and making your intentions clear to others.

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 career and/or public image. The timing is good to retire and/or direct your energy towards a “retirement career” that enables you to put your skills to use in an enjoyable way. If you’ve been needing more recreation and leisure time, set intentions for this area of your life at this New Moon.

Any intentions you write at this New Moon are likely 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 solidify an agreement with a platonic friend, romantic partner, or business connection. You’re being supported to create sustainable long-term situations, but this  might require you to embrace change in the present moment. Jupiter is in your Sun sign, working in a harmonious trine with Neptune this month. If you were born November 5th - 12th, of any year, you’re in store for some good luck. A romance may begin to bloom and you’ll be on track for spiritual and emotional growth.

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you might be inspired to put your skills to work for a good cause - consider volunteering with an organization you support. The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th will shine in your 5th house of romance and creativity. Your intuition will be strong. Pay attention to signs from the Universe about the direction to take in your love life.

Proceed in a forward moving direction, but avoid acting impulsively, especially when it comes to decisions about your home and/or family.

Mars will clear its retrograde shadow by October 8th, but Venus stations retrograde in your Sun sign on October 5th. Because we’re in the shadow of Venus retrograde all month, and this planet represents love and money, you could be dealing with situations from the past in either of these areas of your life. Avoid making major decisions that could affect your finances or love life. Instead, focus on gaining closure from the past and reviewing the status of both your bank account and feelings for someone special.

The Sun will be in Virgo and your solar 11th house of friendship and community through the 21st, creating a favorable environment for networking and making new friends. Community service will be supported. Consider volunteering for a cause you believe in. When you combine forces with others, you’ll be especially effective this month.

On the 22nd the Sun will ingress into Libra, 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 to quiet your mind and cultivate inner peace. Take some time for contemplation and renewal.

This is a good month to take steps to make your home feel more comfortable and secure. Any home-related projects or discussions with family members that have been on hold are now ready to move forward again. In general, you’ll probably crave some alone time during the days before October 23rd. Use this time to get extra rest, as the days between the 23rd and 31st could get busy. You may be inspired to work on behalf of the homeless. Research some volunteer opportunities.

Venus will station retrograde in your Sun Sign on the 5th. You’ll likely feel this phenomenon more strongly than some of your peers, especially if you were born October 31st - November 4th, of any year.

Due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon, we may feel the effects until as late as December 17th. This Venus retrograde cycle will encourage you to make yourself a priority and release old habits that could be holding you back.

When it comes to relationships, avoid making major decisions that weren’t already on your mind the last six months. If attached, you can use the energy this month to engage in meaningful conversation that can help to strengthen your bond with a loved one. If single, take it slow with anyone new you meet and see how you feel at the end of the year.

Mars will clear the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. This will help you to move ahead with a home-related project. If you live with others, set intentions to cultivate a strong sense of community within your home, and possibly your neighborhood.

The October 8th New Moon is in Libra and your 12th house of intuition, subconscious, and dreams. This New Moon is ideal for goals related to mental health, spirituality, partnership, and inner peace. It’s a great time to establish meditative practices or explore spiritual exercise such as yoga or Tai Chi. Set intentions to give your body the rest and nourishment it needs to feel balanced.

October’s Full Moon on the 24th is in Taurus and your 7th house of partnership. If you or loved ones get upset, realize that everyone is probably feeling a bit insecure. Orient yourself towards grounding activities that help calm and strengthen your spirit. It is a good time to enjoy the company of those who have been a solid presence in your life. Stay within your comfort zone around this date.

Happy birthday, Scorpio! The Sun will be in your sign through the 21st. You’re in store for personal healing, spiritual growth, and the ability to attract abundance into your life. You could be inspired with some new ideas, but avoid major decisions or big commitments this month. Instead, focus on personal goals. You’re ready to grow in new ways, but first, you may need to get your priorities straight. Free yourself from activities that take up your time but offer little personal benefit.

This will be an excellent month to rebalance your energy through meditation, prayer, and other spiritual practices.

The November 7th New Moon will be in your Sun sign. This will be your personal New Moon to set intentions for the coming year! If you were born November 5th - 9th, the next year will hold big changes for you. All Scorpios can use this New Moon to invite the opportunities and relationships they desire into their lives.

Because the retrograde energies will be strong this month, realize that some of your intentions may take time to unfold. By this time next month, you may also realize you don’t want what you think you want now. Make note of your intentions, then revisit them on the December 6th new Moon.

On the 8th, Jupiter will move into Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. This will end Jupiter’s stay of approximately a year in your Sun sign. But, that doesn’t mean you stop receiving benefits from this generous planets.

" ["december"]=> string(3477) "

Much of this month’s astrology is centered around your Sun sign, Scorpio. Venus will spend most of the month in your Sun sign, helping you to “get real” with yourself and others. In addition, Mercury will station direct in your sign on the 6th, which could help you to make up your mind about something you’ve been debating.

During the first few weeks of the month, maintain the status quo and finish what you’ve started, as we’ll be in the shadow phase of both Venus and Mercury retrograde. By December 24th, the energy will clear, and new beginnings will be supported.

This month’s New Moon (December 7th Eastern Standard Time / December 6th Pacific Time) will be in Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Set money-related intentions, as well as any goals involving travel, education, and self-improvement.

Keep in mind that it could take until the New Year for some of your intentions to unfold. We’ll be making our way through the end of the current Mercury retrograde cycle (November 16th - December 6th). Mercury will enter Sagittarius and your 2nd house of finance and self-worth on December 12. You may be interested in researching the cost of a vacation or travel that includes a spiritual purpose. Your mind will be ripe for new knowledge and inspiration!

Beginning on December 2nd, Venus will be in your Sun Sign. Self-care may be a focus, and it will be important to share your needs with loved ones. If single, you’ll have a magnetic appeal that can draw someone intriguing your way. If attached, it’s a good month to build the intimacy in your relationship.

For the first few weeks of December, Venus will be in the shadow phase of the retrograde cycle that occurred October 5th - November 16th. After December 24, we’ll be clear of the shadow phases of both Mercury and Venus retrograde and you’ll be supported to make decisions related to love, money, and your personal goals.

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. This will be an excellent time for Scorpios to enjoy one-on-one conversations in order to get to know a loved one better. Spend some time alone to check in with yourself, as well.

This month’s Full Moon on the 22nd will be in Cancer and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. You’ll feel more clarity about your needs, and a situation could serve as a reminder to stick to your principles. Travel plans could fall into place around this time.

Happy New Year, Scorpio! We’re off to a strong start in 2019. This month’s New Moon on January 5th is combined with a powerful Solar Eclipse! Be sure to set your New Year’s resolutions at this time as Eclipses provide energy to orient ourselves towards goals over the next six months to a year. You’ll be particularly supported to set intentions related to communications, learning new skills, teaching, and leadership opportunities. The Sun will be in Capricorn through January 19th, helping you to express yourself with confidence and stick to a commitment you’ve made to yourself or others.

Jupiter and Neptune will be engaged in a tense square that will be exact mid-month. You’re scheduled for some luck when it comes to your finances. However, avoid overspending or taking unnecessary risks, such as gambling or making an investment that isn’t well researched. Romance may bloom, but take care not to get carried away and fail to see the potential pitfalls in a new or existing relationship. If you keep your feet on the ground, you can encourage a smoother flow when it comes to love or money. Challenges that present in these areas of life will help you to take a more moderate approach.

On the 20th, the Sun will ingress into Aquarius, activating your 4th house of home and family. You may be inspired to initiate a creative project that enlivens your living space. The last week of the month will be a great time to bring friends together in your home.

Uranus, planet of revolution, is completing its journey of nearly eight years through Aries. This month, Uranus will station direct on the 6th and begin heading towards its arrival in Taurus on March 6, 2019. The past few years have provided you the opportunity to make positive changes for yourself, but you may have had to have the rug pulled out from underneath you in order to get motivated. Make the most of your hard-earned confidence and independence. When Uranus moves into your 7th house of partnership in March, you’ll be primed to approach relationships with a solid sense of yourself.

The second Eclipse this month will be a Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st. This Eclipse could highlight your career achievements whether you’re in the workforce or have retired. Don’t shy away from the spotlight—it’s likely you’re overdue for some public recognition for your hard work. If you haven’t yet retired, you could begin to focus on the need for an exit strategy.

" ["february"]=> string(3036) "

Avoid taking unnecessary risks this month, especially when it comes to your money. You’re slated for some luck and financial flow, but it will be wise to conserve your resources at this time. You could be compensated monetarily or materially for a creative talent.

If you’re in the workforce, you could be in line for a bonus or other reward. If retired, you may be enjoying the fruits of your past labors. Travel is favored, but pay close attention to the logistics of your plan and research your options before committing financially to a particular tour or destination. You’re more apt to get swept away with ideas that may not be realistic for your current situation.

This month’s New Moon on February 4th will be in Aquarius, helping you to set intentions related to home and family. Get active in your community and collaborate with neighbors for a common cause such as creating a neighborhood watch, sharing resources, or organizing social events. By the Full Moon on the 19th, group efforts could show tangible results.

Venus enters Capricorn on February 3rd, helping you to make sensible financial decisions. You’ll be supported in efforts to develop an idea slowly and steadily. When it comes to love or money, take your time and demonstrate your reliability. You could be focusing on practical matters with an existing partner. If single, you may be drawn to someone with powerful communication skills.

Mars will be in Aries through the 13th, activating your 6th house of daily work and wellness. Use the first half of the month to initiate healthy habits such as exercise or dietary changes, as you’ll have a lot of available motivation and enthusiasm. However, if you’re new to a physical activity, take things slowly. Take care in your daily travels as well, since Mars can make you more accident-prone during this time.

On the 14th, Mars moves into Taurus and your 7th house of partnership, stirring romance and passion. The second half of the month is best suited for staying in your comfort zone with loved ones. If single, you could meet someone who helps you feel grounded. Earthy pursuits such as yoga, gardening, or hiking will be favored.

The Full Moon on the 19th will be in Virgo, highlighting your 11th house of friendship and community. Social events combined with a higher purpose will be especially productive around this time.

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

It’s not a good month to make major decisions, especially when it comes to relationships. Instead, use the available energy to review your situation and plan on taking your next steps after April 15th, when we’ll be clear of Mercury Retrograde’s shadow. This month, you’re being supported in turning your attention towards yourself. When analyzing relationship issues, focus on how you can take charge of your actions and reactions, rather than expecting others to change.

Uranus will be in the sign of Taurus from March 6, 2019 until April 26, 2026. This is a significant shift of energy, as Uranus only changes signs approximately every seven or eight years and takes 84 years to circle the zodiac. Uranus is a rapid change agent, pushing people to take steps necessary for their growth.

Anyone who is 84 years old will experience their Uranus Return this year—a significant once-in-a-lifetime transit that offers understanding and enlightenment to see life from a “big picture” point-of-view. This transit is often associated with spiritual awakenings. If you’re experiencing this transit, you may also be inspired to pursue some items on your “bucket list,” as your sense of independence and desire for freedom from regular routines will be ignited.

With this planet activating your 7th house of partnership, you will likely undergo major changes to your sense of self and your relationship to others in the coming years. Fear not, as you can use this energy to bring out more of your authenticity, which will ultimately create stability. You’re in for shifting circumstances that could emerge unexpectedly. Realize that this is part of a bigger plan, and proactively seek to make positive changes such as setting healthy boundaries with others and stating your needs in a clear, compassionate manner.

This month’s New Moon will also occur on March 6th, activating your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions for these areas of life. It will be wonderful timing to reconnect with children or grandchildren and enjoy being creative, appreciating the arts, and/or spiritual activities together.

Mercury will be retrograde in Pisces this month, making it a good time to make peace with the past, and resolve unfinished business. You’re not necessarily meant to reunite with an ex, but you could find that you reconnect with someone from your past in order to gain the closure and healing needed to move forward. Take care with your communications with loved ones, as misunderstandings will be more likely. It’s a great time to finish up a creative project!

This month’s Full Moon will fall on March 20th, the same day as the Vernal Equinox. This Full Moon will help to rebalance your mind and spirit. Use the available energy for meditation or prayer, as you’ll have a strong connection to your inner guidance.

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

As April begins, the Sun will be in Aries, lighting up your 6th house of health and wellness. Use the beginning of the month to focus on routines related to exercise, diet, and other daily practices that help you feel energized. On April 20, the Sun will ingress into Taurus and your 7th house of partnership. From this date through the end of the month, examine your approach to relationships and seek ways to promote stability for yourself and others.

The April 5th New Moon in Aries signifies a time for powerful new beginnings! This New Moon initiates 2019’s New Moon cycle, with Aries as the first sign. You can use this New Moon to set intentions related to health, fitness, personal challenges, and taking charge of your time.

In her book, New Moon Astrology, Jan Spiller advises creating a “treasure map” at this New Moon by making a collage of images that represent what you’d like to bring into your life. We clear the shadow of the last Mercury retrograde cycle on April 15th. Therefore, it’s best to set intentions on the 5th, but wait until the second half of the month to take initial action steps toward your new goals.

We have three outer planets stationing retrograde this month, which will turn our attention to our inner power and ability to make things happen for ourselves. Jupiter, planet of luck and opportunity, will station retrograde on April 10, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 11, 2019. In the coming months, you’re supported in efforts to expand your assets. It will be a favorable time to develop a business idea, research investments, or repurpose your existing resources in a creative way. Don’t look to others to create what you need—this astrology encourages you to rely on your own innovation.

The Full Moon on April 19 will be in Libra, lighting up your 12th house of intuition, spirituality, and the subconscious. You could have a realization about a situation that feels unfair. It’s possible you’ve been in denial of a problem in order to “keep the peace.” Look for ways to meet someone in the middle without giving up what’s most important to you.

Pluto and Saturn will be stationing retrograde near the end of the month in the sign of Capricorn, which could leave you feeling more introverted than usual. You’ll be called to look within over the coming months in order to speak your truth with more confidence.

The words we say, or don’t say, hold power. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn both represent power, and as they pass through your 3rd house of communication, you’re called to consider your words carefully. How can you embody your inner strength without overpowering others?

" ["may"]=> string(2857) "

Partnership themes will take center stage this month. May’s astrology highlights open communication and teamwork. The Taurus New Moon on the 4th will support your intentions related to marriage, attracting a romantic partner, developing and nurturing long-term friendships, and forming profitable alliances. The Sun will be in Taurus through the 20th, which can help you to balance your energy with others and make practical plans together.

On May 21, the Sun moves into Gemini and your 8th house of shared finance and intimacy. You could find yourself delving into information that was previously “hidden” in some way. By asking questions, you may discover facts that were omitted or truths that you’ve been avoiding. Take an analytical approach and welcome new information that comes to you even if it’s difficult to look at. Knowledge is power. It will be better to see what realities you’re working with and plan accordingly.

Mars, planet of passion and ambition, will be in Gemini between the 1st and 14th, offering support for heart to heart discussions with loved ones. You could be inspired to do some creative writing based on memories from your past. If you don’t keep a journal, consider starting one. Then, on May 15, Mars moves into Cancer, putting the focus on family. The second half of the month will be ideal for family gatherings or home-related projects.

Venus will be in Aries through the 14th, offering support for self-care. It will be excellent timing to initiate healthy lifestyle changes. Get your body moving and nurture yourself with nutritious foods. From May 15 on, Venus moves into Taurus, bringing a sweet energy to your 7th house of partnership. It’s a great time to get out and meet new people if you’re single, as Venus in Taurus will help you exude your most attractive traits.

The Full Moon will be in your Sun sign on May 18th! You’re likely to feel success related to a personal goal and be celebrated for your accomplishments. This Full Moon could bring about valuable self-realizations that help you to make positive life changes. Allow yourself the time and space necessary for personal reflection. Your intuition will be strong—don’t second guess your gut feelings.

" ["june"]=> string(2937) "

Use the first few weeks of the month to make big decisions regarding relationships or business agreements, as we’ll enter the shadow of Mercury Retrograde on the 20th. The June 3rd New Moon will be in Gemini, supporting new beginnings related to intimate partnerships, shared resources, and communications that involve difficult topics. On the 21st, we’ll experience the Summer Solstice and the Sun’s ingress into Cancer. After this date, the pace will slow, and you could be ready for a vacation.

At the New Moon, you’ll be supported to set intentions related to improving a current partnership or attracting a romantic partner into your life. This might require you to have some hard conversations with loved ones about topics you’d rather avoid. However, this New Moon emphasizes your inner truth and coming out of denial. It’s time to let go of false beliefs that could be limiting your ability to let others know you on a deeper level. Journaling can be especially helpful to pinpoint what you’d like to focus on during this Moon cycle.

The Full Moon on June 17 is in Sagittarius, lighting up your 2nd house of finance. This is a good time to reap the rewards of past efforts. Investments could pay off, or you may enjoy the fruits of your past labor. You could be feeling optimistic about finances, but make sure that you avoid over-idealizing your situation, and take a conservative attitude when it comes to your current spending habits. You’ll be able to see your situation more clearly in August, after we’ve cleared the shadow of the upcoming Mercury retrograde cycle.

The June 21 Summer Solstice marks the Sun’s ingress into Cancer and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. Neptune, representing the subconscious, will station retrograde on this date, which could create a mental “fog”. As June closes, we’re being directed to slow down, rest, and re-group.

Your best bet during the final week of June is to do some big picture visioning, but avoid committing to a plan at this time. The astrological energies support keeping your options open and allowing yourself to dream without worrying about the details. Your mission is to find what inspires you! Once you have your vision, you begin to do some research and figure out some of the necessary action steps.

" ["july"]=> string(2951) "

July is a great month to explore new places and take some time to relax. We’ll experience two powerful Eclipses during July as well as Mercury Retrograde, which will encourage you to step back from your regular routines and consider your next steps forward. The Sun will ingress into Leo and your 10th house of public image on July 22nd. You could get recognized or rewarded for your service to others toward the end of the month. 

This month, we’ll experience the rarity of two New Moons. On July 2nd, there will be a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Cancer and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. You may realize that part of your self-care involves uplifting your spirit with meaningful experiences. Set some intentions related to discovering new people and places.

We’ll also be in the shadow of Mercury Retrograde (July 7 - 31) during this New Moon. If you are traveling this month, allow extra time to arrive at your destination, as delays will be more common during this time. It will be an excellent time to research a new life adventure or educational pursuit. It’s never too late to learn something new! Plan to take big steps forward in mid-August, when we clear Mercury’s retrograde shadow.

Mercury will be retrograde in Leo between July 7th and 18th, which will help you to finish creative projects and reconnect with loved ones. On the 19th, Mercury will retrograde back into Cancer, encouraging you to slow the pace and nurture your spirit. Take some time for yourself and engage in activities that feel relaxing and renewing.

The Full Moon on July 16 will be a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, lighting up your 3rd house of communication and learning. You could receive enlightening information around this time. If you haven’t been looking at your situation realistically, this Eclipse will help you to “get real” and orient towards a practical solution. It’s possible that you’ll be called to share your experience and knowledge with others around this time. 

The Sun’s ingress into Leo on the 22nd and the Leo New Moon on July 31st signal a time to orient towards your social and public life. If you’ve felt a bit introverted this month, set some social dates for August. You could be inspired to put your talents to work to help others.

" ["august"]=> string(2849) "

You may have some decisions on your mind this month related to career/retirement. If retired, there may be the question of “what’s next?”. Last month’s astrology offered the chance for reflection, and we’re now moving into more action-oriented energies toward the end of August. This month’s Full Moon in Aquarius on the 15th will help you to gain clarity about what you need. You could be considering changes to your home life, public life, or both. You may have a valuable realization about your role in your community and the desire to help others.

You could also gain the opportunity to earn some extra money by teaching others in your area of expertise. 

Uranus, planet of awakenings, goes retrograde on August 11, transiting your 7th house of partnership. Whether attached or single, you’re ready to undergo a psychological shift that will help you to be more authentic in your relationships. If you’ve been sacrificing too much of yourself in an effort to please others, circumstances could present that inspire you to draw a line in the sand. In the coming months, you’re due for lessons related to establishing healthy boundaries in a loving manner.

" ["september"]=> string(3000) "

You’ll have the ability to get things done when you team up with others this month, Scorpio. Make a point to mingle with new people and open your mind to unconventional ideas. The Sun will be in Virgo and your 11th house of friendship and community through the 22nd, helping you to make valuable connections. You’re likely to gravitate towards people who are pooling their energy and resources towards a common cause. Humanitarian efforts and community activism will be especially supported. 

This month’s Full Moon in Pisces on the 14th will light up your 5th house of romance and creativity.

Enjoy the arts or engage in a playful practice that inspires you. 

On the 18th, Saturn will station direct, motivating you to learn new skills and/or share your knowledge with others. Saturn has been retrograde since April 30th of this year, traveling through your 3rd house of learning and communication. During the past few months, you may have been focusing on the research or groundwork needed to prepare for a new challenge. 

With Saturn moving direct in the coming months, you’ll be ready to take the next steps forward, which could include travel plans and/or a commitment to teaching or mentoring. You’re in an ideal position to share your knowledge with others, but there are a few things you may need to learn first in order to be as effective as possible. Be willing to be a student and step outside of your comfort zone. The rewards will be worth the extra effort.

The Equinox on September 23rd will mark the Sun’s ingress into Libra and your 12th house of the subconscious and intuition.

" ["october"]=> string(3462) "

This month, your planetary ruler Pluto joins forces with Saturn to help you form powerful connections and deepen your wisdom. These planets have been transiting your 3rd house of communication and learning this year and will continue to do so in 2020. On October 3rd, Pluto will station direct, helping you to identify limiting thoughts and beliefs that no longer work for you. It is a productive time for journaling and other forms of creative expression that help you to access your inner truth.

Because Pluto and Saturn are traveling closely, there is a karmic element to any new information presented this month. Saturn, planet of commitment, is being expressed in Capricorn. Others could be requesting a commitment of time, resources, or energy from you. You’ll need to determine whether these requests are reasonable and in congruence with your personal ideals. The Universe may be testing your ability to say no and advocate for yourself. Rise to the challenge.

This month, a close friend or partner could serve as a sounding board to help you sort through a problem. The Sun will be in Libra through the 22nd, encouraging you to seek a harmonious resolution to a problem. After you’ve reviewed your options on your own, run them by a trusted ally to see how they sound. You probably won’t need advice—simply hearing yourself discuss the matter out loud with another person will confirm what you already know. When the Sun moves into your sign on the 23rd, you’ll feel motivated to pursue a personal goal. You’re apt to be feeling a bit more extroverted after this date, and others will likely seek your company.

Mercury will be retrograde from October 31st - November 20th, but you may feel the effects of this phenomenon as early as October 11th. Push forward new initiatives before this date. After the 11th, allow yourself time to shed what no longer serves you in order to make room for new growth towards the end of the year and the beginning of 2020.

The Full Moon in Aries on the 13th will emphasize your physical wellness and daily activities. It is an excellent time to listen to your body and pay attention to the messages it gives you. You may discover that you need to adjust your schedule to allow time for more self-care. A motivating energy will help you to feel inspired about health-related routines.

The New Moon on the 27th is in your Sun sign, signaling your personal astrological New Year! Consider big picture goals for the coming year. However, keep in mind that we’ll be in the shadow phase of Mercury Retrograde at the time of this New Moon. Avoid initiating major life changes until next month, if possible. You’ll also want to review your intentions at the next New Moon on November 26th after Mercury has stationed direct to be sure they’re what you still want.
