Golden Years Monthly Horoscopes Coming in August!

These monthly horoscopes are written especially for mature adults who are continuing on their path of personal growth and self-improvement. Each month, these horoscopes will provide valuable astrological insights to help gain a new perspective about the life changes that accompany aging. By understanding the planetary cycles during this unique stage of life, these horoscopes will offer validation and encouragement to navigate issues such as grief and loss, physical limitations, love relationships, finding new inspiration at any age, financial issues, family relationships, and housing situations. 

" ["august"]=> string(3429) "

The first few weeks of August are an ideal time to gather family and friends in your home. Everyone will be encouraged to take more leisure time while the Leo Sun shines through August 21st, making these days perfect for catching up with some of the busier people in your life. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into Virgo, and you may feel like spending more time alone toward the end of the month.

In general, you may be feeling a push-pull energy all month that has you vacillating between the desire to spend time in public vs. private time at home. You could be seeking a better balance between taking care of others and addressing your own needs.  

Mercury, the planet of communication and information, will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th. During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon, which will discourage initiating action. With Mercury in retrograde through your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children, it will be ideal timing to finish a creative project and reconnect with a loved one.

Just when Uranus has reached the final degrees of Aries, it will station retrograde on August 3rd, prolonging its journey through this sign until mid-May of 2018. At that time, Uranus will enter your Sun Sign, heralding a new era for you that may give your life some surprising plot twists. (However, it will dip back into Aries briefly November 2018 - early March 2019). When Uranus goes retrograde this month, you’ll be awakened to ideas that have been buried in your subconscious.

In the coming months, you could be surprised by the feelings that surface for you - including anger, impatience, and impulsiveness. These emotions are surfacing so you can address an issue that has been ignored for too long. Avoid rash reactions and try to spend some time alone to sort through some of this newfound information within yourself. When Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll be better prepared to take productive steps toward the ideas you’ve been brewing.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the ability to set healthy boundaries with others. On August 7th, the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius puts the focus on your 10th house of social status and 4th house of home and family. You could gain some public recognition for an accomplishment; but you may need to assert yourself if others are demanding too much of your time. Keep in mind that the Eclipse will intensify the emotional energy in the atmosphere. Exercise extra sensitivity when communicating your needs.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo puts the emphasis on your living situation or relationship with a family member. Solar Eclipses often promote endings and beginnings. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. You could be working through issues that stem from early childhood.

This month, you can make the most of the available astrological energies by “cleaning house” both literally and figuratively. Clear your home of clutter, and let go of unhealthy attachments to the past. The work you do now will prepare you for the second half of September, when you’ll be supported to make decisions related to home and family.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3607) "

Romance will be in the air this month, but avoid making new commitments. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. If you’re already involved, it will be a wonderful time to recommit to your partnership. You could reconnect with an old flame, or meet someone who feels familiar to you. If single, enjoy spending time with anyone special who comes into your life and re-evaluate the relationship later in the month.

On the 20th, the Virgo New Moon will support new goals related to romance, creativity, and/or healthy routines. This is great timing, as we’ll be clear of retrograde energy! After the 20th you’ll be supported to make relationship decisions and initiate new beginnings.

The Virgo Sun will shine in your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children through September 21st. Spending time with loved ones will be encouraged, and you could be inspired to work together on a project. Organizational tasks will be supported. Do you or other family members need help going through old photographs or other memorabilia? Activities that bring back treasured memories such as scrapbooking, creating slideshows, or reading old journals will be favored.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo and your 4th house of home and family. This will be a great time to add some flair to your living space! Create or purchase some art to liven up your surroundings. It’s possible that you have some items to recycle or reuse in some way that will come in handy around the house. The timing will be especially good for family reunions or parties.

The Pisces Full Moon on September 6th will highlight your friendships and community. This can mark a special time to appreciate the people in your life. However, Full Moon energy can stir up emotions, so be sensitive in your communications with others. You could realize that you’ve inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings. Take the time to clarify your intentions and clear up any misunderstandings.

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. The remainder of the month could be an especially social time for you. Friends may look to you now for advice and support. It will also be an excellent time to team up with others and work toward a shared goal.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, which will help you to bring some of your ideas to fruition. If you’ve been thinking of travel, the next seven months will provide a good opportunity to put your plans into action. International travel will be especially supported, but you’ll benefit from any chance to experience a new location and/or way of life. Your mind will be primed for ideas and information—consider enrolling in a class or educational program!

" ["october"]=> string(3842) "

This will be your kind of month, Taurus. The energies at work support practical action and helping others to see their situation realistically. October’s astrology will bring stabilizing forces to help you get relationships on track and calm your mind. Health and wellness could be a focus. If you’ve had trouble establishing a wellness routine, this will be the month you can make things stick. Enlisting a buddy to keep you accountable will help to ensure your success. Subconsciously, you’ve been ready to make some positive changes. Now that we’re free and clear from the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde, follow your instincts and move forward with your plans.

Romance will be in the air, as the month begins with a Mars-Venus conjunction in your 5th house of romance and creativity. If single, this will be a fantastic time to get out and meet new people. Participating in a group creative project could help you to encounter someone special. Whether attached or single, it will be a favorable time to attend artistic and cultural events. You’ll have the ability to offer practical advice to your own children, grandchildren, or other special children in your life.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 12th house of subconscious and spirituality on October 5th. This will be an excellent time for some journaling. Dreams and ideas will be emerging from your subconscious and are ready to be brought to fruition. You could be considering how to balance your needs with those of others, especially when it comes to the use of your time. Make an effort to schedule regular time specifically for the activities you enjoy.

On the 10th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio, indicating luck, opportunity, and growth for partnerships over the next year! During the time Jupiter travels through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you’ll have much to learn from the people you feel close to. This could include friends, romantic partners, family members or anyone you work with closely. If challenges arise, look for the chance to learn from your experience. You’ll be able to access your innate optimism, which will help you to navigate relationships more easily. When you give others the benefit of the doubt, you’ll be able to communicate productively.

On the 19th, the New Moon in Libra will support new beginnings for daily routines, work, and health. If you’ve been procrastinating healthy lifestyle changes, this will be the time to write down your intentions! Keep your goals in a visible location and ask a friend or family member to help keep you accountable.

On October 23, the Sun will move into Scorpio and your 7th house of partnership. For the remainder of the month, strive to make a one-on-one connection with loved ones. Keep your social calendar light and make time for the most important relationships. You’ll likely be impatient with small talk—spend your time with people who can dive into the real topics of life.

" ["november"]=> string(3868) "

It will be a great month for you to get out and about. The Full Moon on the 4th will be in your sign, and you could be in line for an award or other form of public recognition. You often work steadily in the background, keeping things together for others. But this month, you could find yourself in a leadership position. Although you may be in high demand, take care not to spread yourself too thin. You’ll benefit from time to sit with your thoughts, so you can focus on your own plans.

The Full Moon in your Sun sign on November 4th will encourage you to share your natural talents with others. It will be a good time to enjoy social events and make lasting connections. Cooking, gardening, and home decorating will be favored. Make your living space cozy for yourself and loved ones.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries has been in effect most of the year and you’ll be able to enjoy its benefits until the middle of next month. You have unique talents to share, and could be a valuable mentor to others. In addition, you’re in line to learn from those you teach! The goals you have in mind will fall into place more easily when you team up with others and admit what you need to learn.

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 will be one of the prevailing aspects during 2018, but we’re getting a sneak preview over the next few months. Relationships of varying types are ripe for transformation. You might find yourself moving away from friendships or other types of relationships that don’t fill you up spiritually. The emphasis will be on quality, not quantity, when it comes to those with whom you spend your precious time.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 7th house of partnership. This will be an excellent New Moon to set relationship-related intentions. You’ll be supported to set goals for new beginnings in the areas of intimacy, positive transformation, self-discipline, deep emotional connections, and wills/inheritances.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, which can make it difficult to concentrate. Therefore, it will be wise to avoid making important decisions November 20th - 24th. With Neptune in your 11th house of friendship and community, you might experience some crossed wires. Don’t take it personally, and be willing to go with the flow if social plans change. Wait until after the 24th to commit to joining new clubs or groups.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. For the next month, you’ll get extra motivation to tackle some of topics you’ve been avoiding. An optimistic energy will help you to cultivate a positive attitude towards difficult situations. This could include having an important talk with a family member or spouse, as well as dealing with debts, wills, or legal matters.

" ["december"]=> string(2512) "

This month, the pace will slow, which may suit you just fine. Mercury will be retrograde December 3rd - 22nd, but we’ll feel the effects all month due to a two-week “shadow period” on either side of those dates. Use the opportunity to review your finances with a partner or organize other types of shared resources. No one likes to talk about end-of-life planning, but your practical nature likes to know that things are in order for your loved ones.

Addressing topics such as wills or financial agreements may be briefly uncomfortable, but ultimately you’ll feel free once you’ve taken care of business. And, there will be plenty of exciting ideas to focus on in the here-and-now. The Winter Solstice on the 21st could stir your desire to travel or engage in an educational program. Perhaps you could combine these two endeavors!

The Full Moon on the 3rd is in Gemini, highlighting your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. You could receive news about an investment or other type of monetary gain. Because Mercury is stationing retrograde today, there could be delays related to scheduled payments. It will be a good time to collect money owed to you or repay a debt. Think about the value of your knowledge. It’s possible that others would be willing to pay for your wisdom and guidance.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. This New Moon will support your wishes related to paying off debts, financial agreements, and intimate partnership. However, because Mercury will be retrograde, don’t commit to a new business deal or relationship this month. It will be a great time to renegotiate an existing contract or reconnect with a former flame.

Saturn moves into Capricorn and your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education on December 19th. This will initiate a two and a half year time period that will help you to increase your knowledge and experience new life lessons. Be open to new ideas—it’s time to expand your horizons. Consider planning a trip in 2018, or enrolling in classes that interest you. In addition, you could be asked to teach others. Step up to the challenge.

" } [1]=> array(13) { ["senior-horoscope-year"]=> string(4) "2018" ["january"]=> string(3386) "

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will highlight your personal connections and communication. You could hear from a loved one around this time, and it will be excellent timing to reach out to others. Consider hosting a party in your home or gathering with family members somewhere cozy. It will be easy to get in touch with your feelings around this time. Notice what comes up for you.

We clear the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde by the 10th, which will facilitate 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, offering support for goals related to travel, taking classes, teaching others, mentorship, or making long-term plans for retirement or a new life adventure.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. Over the past five months, this planet of rebellion has been working behind the scenes in your subconscious. Now that Uranus is direct, you could be ready to implement an idea you’ve been thinking about for a while. You may worry that others will think it’s too unconventional, but you need to move to the beat of your own drum. Let yourself break with tradition. However, that doesn’t mean you should make hasty decisions or abandon your common sense. Practice thinking outside the box while making sure you have both feet on the ground.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month, which will bring you luck and opportunity related to partnerships and friendships of all types. You’ll feel your best when working with others. Don’t try to go it alone. Accept support from a spouse or other close partner, and try to get involved in a group that interests you. Tap into the resources available through your community, and share your generosity with others. You’re scheduled to experience personal growth through your relationships this year.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. This Eclipse will bring information to light regarding your home and/or situation with a family member. Lunar Eclipses help us make the necessary emotional shifts to accept and integrate new life changes. Things may not be able to stay the same at home. You could be ready for a different home that better suits your lifestyle, and you may consider leaving an area that feels familiar to you. Focus on the opportunities ahead of you rather than what you’ll be leaving behind.

" ["february"]=> string(3938) "

You’re scheduled for a new beginning related to your public image and/or career. You could be preparing for retirement, or if you’re already retired, this could be a time to launch a new chapter of your work life. The New Moon / Solar Eclipse on the 15th will offer support for innovation. If you’ve had a creative business idea, this could be the time to move forward with your plans. Even if the idea is uniquely yours, don’t feel you have to go it alone. Others may have valuable expertise and experience to share.

All month, we’ll feel the benefit of a favorable sextile between Jupiter and Pluto. These two powerful planets will help you to reinvent yourself in some way. Taking classes, traveling, and meeting people with different perspectives will be successful routes to personal growth. You’re ready to let go of the habits and beliefs that have been limiting you. Approach new challenges with an open mind.

The Sun will be in Aquarius through the 17th, moving into Pisces on the 18th. You could get recognized for an achievement. The work you do to help others won’t go unnoticed. Use any public attention you receive to speak up on behalf of those whose voices are not heard. You’ll have a charismatic energy that will encourage others to step up and help their fellow humans.

From the 18th to the end of the month, the Sun will be in Pisces, highlighting your 11th house of friendship and community. You could be drawn towards spiritual groups and spending time with others who are seeking more meaning from life. A friend could need a helping hand. The energy you put towards helping others will be repaid in full. You’ll feel richly blessed.

Both Mercury and Venus will move into the sign of Pisces mid-month. Venus, planet of love and money, will ingress into Pisces on the 10th. Follow your intuition when it comes to relationships and finance. Set healthy boundaries with loved ones. Mercury, planet of communication, will ingress into Pisces on the 17th, which will help to surround your interactions with love and compassion.

" ["march"]=> string(2935) "

This month, it’s time to slow down and rethink your approach to a relationship or problem. You may need to let go of a false belief. The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, but we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Allow yourself some time to review a personal project. It is a great time to make revisions on any work in progress.

As March begins, we’ll experience a Full Moon on the 1st, in the sign of Virgo. Your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children will be illuminated, and you may realize that a loved one needs your attention. If children, grandchildren, or romantic partners are acting overly emotional, try to determine what it is they need on a practical level. Often, the Full Moon accentuates our feelings so we can communicate about how to improve our relationships.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). Use these days for reflection and returning to activities that bring you inner peace. Social plans may get cancelled due to circumstances beyond your control—take this as a cue to get some extra rest.

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 11th house of friendship and community. This is a good time to set your intentions towards loving, gentle exchanges with loved ones. You may decide to forgive yourself or someone close to you in order to renew a relationship.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon.” The March 31st Blue Moon will be in Libra, and highlights your 6th house of daily work and wellness. You’ll be able to see the next steps of an organizational project. A loved one could offer you the motivation you need to stick to a health-related goal.

" ["april"]=> string(3541) "

Keep an even keel this month, Taurus. Your methodical approach will serve you well. You’ll get the chance to shake yourself loose from limited thinking that might be blocking your ability to get more enjoyment out of life.

Mercury is retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. Some beneficial solitude can offer you time to reflect on what you need. Think about the activities you have enjoyed in the past that you might like to reintroduce into your life.

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. These two planets support emotional understanding and forgiveness, which will benefit relationships of all types. You’ll be directed to share more of yourself with others. Group activities as well as spending one-on-one time with loved ones will be favored. You could feel inspired to collaborate with others in a common cause such as a humanitarian effort, environmental movement, or promoting the arts.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde in your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education this month. This points to a great time for any type of learning experience. Taking classes, attending lectures, and even being a teacher yourself will be supported. You’re scheduled to use your past knowledge and life experiences to help others and yourself. It’s possible you need a reminder to seize the moment and “walk your talk.” What philosophies do you emphasize to others that you need to demonstrate in your own life?

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will light up your 7th house of partnership. Use the energy of this Full Moon to get clear about a romantic relationship, friendship, or professional association. You’re being called to bring balance to a situation, but first, you’ll need to see all the dynamics at work. Be more forthcoming about your needs and encourage those close to you to do the same. You may have to make yourself emotionally vulnerable in order to improve a relationship.

" ["may"]=> string(3060) "

Get ready to make some changes, Taurus. Uranus will enter your Sun sign on May 15th for the first time in 84 years! If you’re turning 84, you’ll be experiencing your Uranus Return, a transit associated with feeling more free. Tauruses born April 19 - 23, of any year,  will feel the effects of Uranus moving into Taurus moreso than their peers. In general, it’s time to buckle up and be ready for an interesting ride. You can learn new ways of being at any age, and your ability to be flexible and try new things will help you navigate this astrology with greater ease.

Fortunately, we’ll clear the shadow phase of the last Mercury Retrograde cycle on May 3, making the rest of May a fantastic time to move forward with new plans. On the 13th, Mercury moves into your Sun Sign, which will make it easier to make sound decisions and communicate clearly with others. Try to initiate new beginnings this month, as we’re scheduled for more retrograde cycles over the summer.

Relationships are highlighted this month, and you’ll have good luck when it comes to partnerships of all sorts. A favorable trine between Jupiter and Neptune will help you to attract positive people into your life and inspire you to help others. Consider volunteering for a cause you believe in or joining groups of like minded individuals. You’re being called to pursue spiritually fulfilling activities and relationships. As you do so, you may find yourself orienting away from social commitments that drain your energy. Avoid superficial interactions and focus on the relationships that feel most meaningful.

This month’s New Moon on the 15th will be in your Sun sign, signifying your personal astrological new year! This is a powerful New Moon to set goals for the coming year. Decide what you’d like to attract into your life as well as what you’re ready to release.

The Sun will ingress into Gemini on the 20th, illuminating your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. Use the end of the month to review your accounts and communicate about money matters with loved ones or business associates. It will be great timing to iron out financial agreements and get clear on your objectives.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. A shared investment could pay off, or you may receive money owed to you. It will also be excellent timing to resolve any debts you may owe.

" ["june"]=> string(3026) "

Take it slow and steady this month, Taurus. Business dealings and interactions with bureaucracies or other large organizations could be met with delays toward the end of June. Do your best to initiate important transactions around the New Moon on June 13th and use the rest of the month to finish what you started. Stay flexible and open to new ways of accomplishing some of your routine tasks.

The New Moon in Gemini on the 13th puts the focus on your finances and self-worth. Set money related goals and initiate discussions related to investments or business agreements. It will be excellent timing to work with a financial advisor or take a class in money management. Communicate with anyone with whom you share resources or coordinate with financially to set shared goals.

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 let go of limiting beliefs. It could be time to release your attachment to groups or individuals who don’t support your values.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. Reach out to loved ones and express your gratitude for their presence in your life. It will be great timing to take short trips to visit family members or share vacation time together. Step out of your day-to-day chores and routines and have some fun!

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that will last until August 27th. You may need to re-think your approach to leadership. It won’t be the time to push new ideas forward; and if others seem resistant to following your lead, think about how you can get everyone on the same page. You may need to help others feel included in decision-making that will affect a large group. Timing is good for revising a plan related to your community, friends, or a humanitarian effort.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th highlights travel, adventure and higher education. It will be excellent timing to finalize travel plans, enjoy a well-planned trip, or celebrate an accomplishment. Anything you’ve been steadily putting effort towards over time will show results and you’ll feel rewarded for your hard work.

" ["july"]=> string(2790) "

A reflective mood prevails this month, encouraging you to reminisce with loved ones. It’s ideal timing to clean out those closets and enjoy walking down memory lane while you streamline your possessions. You could be a big help to someone else who needs to get organized. You’re also in store to consider some new ideas related to your home and family life. It won’t be the right time to make big decisions right now, but you may become inspired about an idea for the near future.

We’ll be under the influence of both Mercury and Mars retrograde this month, making it a better time for finishing than starting. You can make best use of the available energy when you revisit ideas or projects that have been sitting on the back burner for some time. You’ll have the motivation necessary to revive an old dream! 

A Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will activate your 3rd house of communication and learning. This high-powered New Moon supports your intentions to improve communications with loved ones, especially family members. Reach out to loved ones and catch up on any unreturned correspondence. You’ll be considering your future security, as well as that of those close to you. Consider what you need to cultivate a sense of stability at home. Your future living situation could be up for review.

The Sun will be in Cancer until the 21st, which encourages social interactions. Use the first part of the month to get out and about. You may be inspired to host a gathering or family reunion in your home. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, highlighting your 4th house of home and family. The days between this date until the end of the month will be particularly favorable for spending time with children and/or grandchildren. A playful mood will encourage you to reconnect with your inner child.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will bring information to light regarding your friendships, community, and/or public image.

If you’ve been waiting to move forward with a decision or idea, you’ll be glad to know that both Mars and Mercury will station direct this month. Mercury will station direct on the 19th so, after this date, you’re encouraged to initiate any action that you’ve been considering for some time related to your home and family life. If you’re just beginning to think about a decision related to real estate or leases, it is advisable to wait until next month when we’ll be clear of the shadow phase of this phenomenon. If you’re planning a move during this time period, do your best to stay flexible and use any unexpected delays to your advantage.

Although Mars will station direct on the 27th, we’ll remain in the shadow phase of this cycle until October 8th. Proceed slowly and be prepared to retrace your steps, especially when it comes to leadership activities, travel plans, or educational pursuits.

This month’s New Moon on the 11th combines with a Solar Eclipse in Leo. This high-powered New Moon will stimulate change and new beginnings related to your home and family life.

Any intentions you set now are scheduled to unfold over the next six months. But because there is so much retrograde energy afoot, state your intentions clearly, then revisit them at next month’s New Moon on September 9th to make sure they’re what you truly want. We’ll be under the influence of various retrograde cycles between now and the end of the year. You can make progress, but the pace will need to be slow and you might have to circle back to finish something you thought was complete.

If you were born April 21 - 25, of any year, you’ll be feeling the strongest effects of a favorable trine between Saturn and Uranus. These planets are working together this month to promote choices that offer you liberation and stability. Uranus is in your Sun sign, helping you to break free from limiting situations; while Saturn is in your 10th house of career and public image. If you aren’t retired, the timing is favorable to do so between now and the end of November. If you are retired, you could be moving towards one of your personal goals that were slated for this stage of life.

Jupiter and Neptune are also forming a harmonious trine all month. It’s a good time to make spiritual connections with others, and there is a forgiving energy available to heal current and past relationships.

When the Sun enters Virgo on the 23rd, you’ll have the ability to get organized and put healthy routines into place. The Pisces Full Moon on the 26th illuminates your 11th house of friendship and community. Gather with friends to enjoy music, dance, and celebrating life together.

This month provides the opportunity to take small steps forward towards a goal. We’ll clear the shadow of Mercury retrograde on the 2nd which will facilitate an easier flow of communication with family members. It will be good timing to begin a home-related project. While you’ll have support to take action on your inspiration this month, keep in mind that Mars is still in the shadow of its most recent retrograde cycle. Some delays are to be expected, especially if you work or volunteer with the public.

Mars will clear its retrograde shadow by October 8th. You may notice any resistance to new ideas begin to lift as the month progresses. Proceed in a forward moving direction, but avoid impulsive decisions. The timing will be favorable for those considering retirement, but you’ll need a well-planned exit strategy. After October 8th, it will be easier to work with others and exercise your leadership skills.

It is a good month to reconnect with loved ones. You may have had plans delayed with a romantic partner, children, grandchildren, or other loved ones this summer. The first few weeks of the September will be an ideal time to finally sync up. The Sun will be in Virgo through the 21st, illuminating your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Set aside time for play, and visiting with any special young people in your life, such as grandchildren.

On the 22nd the Sun makes its 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 a great time to get organized. Team up with others to tackle clean up projects together.

Saturn will station direct on September 6th, which will help you to manifest long-term goals. Saturn is in a favorable trine with Uranus in your Sun sign this month. Your personal ambitions will get a high-powered boost, but you’ll need to add your own elbow grease. While you have much to teach others, you could be surprised at what you learn from someone from a younger generation. Enjoy exchanging information and perspectives on the world.

Use this month’s New Moon in Virgo on the 9th to set intentions related to romance, creative projects, or working with children. The Full Moon on the 24th will be in Aries and your 12th house of the subconscious. It will be a great time to identify and release feelings of anger in a healthy way.

You’ll likely feel an energy boost this month. Mars, your ruling planet, will clear the shadow of its last retrograde cycle on the 8th, which is the same day as the New Moon. You’ll be well positioned to move ahead with an idea that had encountered delays over the summer. When it comes to personal relationships, however, the energies will direct you to slow down. Venus will station retrograde this month in your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance. Avoid making major decisions related to love or money. Get in touch with your values and contemplate ways to express your needs in an assertive, but loving, way.

The October 8th New Moon will be in Libra, highlighting your 7th house of partnership. Even though the timing isn’t right to initiate a new relationship, it is a powerful New Moon to set intentions involving romantic partnership. Consider what (or who) you’d like to attract into your life as well as how to balance the power dynamics with friends or lovers. Realize that it could take some time for your intentions to unfold. This month, the focus is on resolving the past so that you’ll be ready to move forward towards the end of the year.

The official dates of Venus retrograde are October 5th through November 16th. Due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon, we may feel the effects until as late as December 17th. The energy of Venus retrograde will provide you the opportunity to make peace with yourself and others. You’re called to examine how you operate in love relationships, friendships, and business dealings. If things haven’t been going the way you would like, try to identify what you could be doing differently. It’s possible that there has been a communication breakdown or lack of information.

In some cases, you could feel that information has been hidden from you. It will be important to avoid rash decisions. Plan to re-evaluate how you feel after December 17th, when we’ll be clear of Venus retrograde’s shadow.

October’s Full Moon on the 24th will be in Taurus, highlighting your 2nd house of finance and self-worth. This is a good time to appreciate your material resources and cultivate a sense of security. Long-term investments could pay off around this time.
