" ["august"]=> string(3365) "

Most of August will be well suited for taking time alone to reflect and spend time on activities that bring you joy. Creative projects may be a focus. The Leo Sun illuminates your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious through August 21st, making it a good time to reconnect with your inner wisdom and heart’s desire. On August 22nd, the Sun moves into your Sun Sign, and your calendar may fill up towards the end of the month. Take care not to overbook yourself as it can be tempting to say yes to everything right now.

Regular spiritual practices can feel especially grounding this month. You could be more aware of your mind-body connection and find spiritual movement such as yoga or tai chi to be particularly fulfilling. Avoid starting a brand new exercise routine this month, however, as Mercury will be retrograde from August 12th to September 5th.The timing will be much better suited for reinstating healthful habits that have slipped from your daily routines.

During the first days of August, we’ll already be in the “shadow phase” of Mercury Retrograde, which discourages initiating action. Mercury, your ruling planet, will be in retrograde through your 1st house of self. This is great timing to review your personal to do list and prioritize. Use the energy of this time to finish up some of those projects that have been awaiting your attention.

With Uranus also going retrograde this month, there will be a productive climate for self-reflection and creativity. You may feel the need for more personal space. Assert yourself lovingly. In the coming months, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your individuality. It's possible that you've been focused on others around you at the expense of attention on your own passionate and creative spirit.

Be intentional about spending time on pursuits that simply bring you joy, without feeling guilty that you “should” be doing anything else. If you start making a habit of this, by the time Uranus stations direct on January 2, 2018, you’ll feel more comfortable setting boundaries with others.

This month, we’ll experience two Eclipses that offer powerful realizations and the inspiration for new beginnings. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th activates your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious, as well as your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. You might become especially aware of how your thoughts affect your energy levels. This is a good time to practice positive affirmations and break free from unhealthy habits.

On the 21st, a Solar Eclipse in Leo initiates endings and beginnings related to your values and belief systems. Because Mercury will be retrograde, focus on what you need to release from your life at this time. A part of you will be waking up to your hidden talents, dreams, and creative passions. Maybe you’ve been procrastinating something you’ve wanted to do. This is an excellent time to work on releasing the subconscious blocks to your success such as fear, limiting beliefs, and lack of faith. You’re in store for a spiritual and psychological transformation that will fortify you to begin on a new path after mid-September, when the Mercury retrograde energy clears.

 
" ["september"]=> string(3888) "

This is a big month for you, Virgo! You’ll enjoy the Sun in your sign through the 21st; and on the 20th, the New Moon will support new beginnings in your life for the coming year. For the first few weeks of the month, your time will be best spent finishing anything you’ve started. You’re preparing for a new chapter of life, but first, you’ll need to tend to previous commitments. Mercury goes direct on the 5th, but we’ll be under the influence of its “shadow phase” until the 19th. These days will be ideal for reviewing the details of an existing plan and identifying potential problems before they arise.

On the 20th, the New Moon will signal the perfect time to pursue a new personal goal. Write down your intentions for the coming year and get detailed with your plans. How can you make the best use of your time and resources to achieve your ambitions? You may have to let go of some activities that are filling your time and detracting from your true passions.

The Sun will be in your sign through September 21st. These days will provide an excellent time to connect with others. You could have a busy social schedule. Don’t forget to pencil in time for yourself. It will be a productive time to organize your home and personal affairs.

From the 1st to the 4th, Mercury will be retrograde in Leo, and your 12th house of intuition and subconscious thoughts. This will provide support for creative pursuits. Your psychic senses will be fine-tuned, and you might feel a connection with someone from your past. Look for messages in your dreams and keep a notebook by your bed.

Partnership will be a focus around the days of the Pisces Full Moon on September 6th. You could gain clarity about a relationship issue around this time. Whether attached or single, themes of compassion and forgiveness will be present. At this Full Moon, we’re being encouraged to let go of old feelings that no longer serve us. You’re due for some valuable self-realizations and it can become clear that those around you are doing the best they can. If you’re looking to meet someone special, you could have a dreamy encounter. Just wait until after the 20th to make important relationship decisions.

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 the opportunity to feel gratitude for the material and spiritual gifts you’ve experienced and enjoyed so far this year. You’re in a good position to team up with others on a money-making venture. Negotiations will be likely to go in your favor.

Pluto will station direct on September 28th, offering support for long-term romantic partnerships. If you’re in a committed relationship, you could enjoy the results of work you’ve put into your partnership. For those who have been with a spouse or partner for a long time, you’ll be feeling the regenerative energies of Pluto to help move your relationship into a new phase. To prevent stagnancy and promote personal growth, it’s necessary to let go of the past. Accept yourself and your loved one exactly as you are today.

Romantic partnerships as well as platonic friendships will be highlighted. Most importantly, you’ll feel a strong connection to yourself and be able to experience a healthy dose of self-love.

The Full Moon will be in Aries and your 8th house of intimacy and shared finance on October 5th. Relationship issues may come to light around this time. This can include anyone you have a close connection with, such as a spouse or family member. It will be time to recognize your needs and assert yourself in a positive manner. Anything that has been “swept under the rug” is more likely to emerge now in order to be addressed. You’ll feel much better once you’ve shared your feelings, but communicate with care, as the Full Moon will make everyone more emotionally sensitive.

On the 9th, Jupiter will ingress into Scorpio, and your 3rd house of communication and learning. While Jupiter travels through Scorpio (October 10, 2017 - November 2018), you’ll be primed to expand your mind by taking classes, attending lectures, reading books, or participating in new life experiences. This will be an excellent time to break out of any “ruts” and remind yourself that there is still more to learn in life. A close friend or partner could offer you support in these endeavors and may act as a mentor.

" ["november"]=> string(3985) "

Communication is key this month, Virgo. Most of the month will be ideal for reaching out to others and making new connections. However, avoid important discussions the week of the 20th - 24th. During these days, Neptune will be stationing direct, and miscommunications can be more likely. Home and family life are a big focus as is your long-term security. Evaluate your current living situation to be sure it’s a good fit for your current lifestyle. It could be time to downsize!

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th will highlight your 9th house of travel, adventure, and higher education. You could be offered an opportunity to teach others, and travel may be involved. Your valuable skills will be sought by others, and it could be time to invest in a personal dream. If you’ve been saving for a vacation or special activity, you’ll probably feel the urge to get your plans in motion.

A trine between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries will emphasize freedom and your sense of security. Sometimes it could feel as if these two concepts are at odds with each other. But, you’ll be working with ways to balance your sensible side with the part of you that desires more excitement out of life. While it might not be possible to do all the things you dream about, you can do more than you think. You might need to team up with others to help you reach a goal involving travel or a new adventure. Think about your living situation. Is it limiting your freedom? Could be time for a move or change in your home 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. Your relationships will benefit from this transit, especially when you make an effort to open up the lines of communication. If single, the timing is favorable to meet someone new in a class or spiritual group. You’re ready for personal growth through your relationship with others.

The November 18th New Moon will be in Scorpio and your 3rd house of communication and learning. Use this New Moon to set intentions related to honest conversations, intimate relationships, solving complex problems, and creative expression.

Neptune will station direct on the 22nd, and it could be difficult to focus during the days surrounding this event. Therefore, avoid making important decisions November 20th - 24th. Give yourself time to consider your options and make final decisions before or after these dates, if possible. Because Neptune has been transiting your 7th house of partnership, you may not be seeing a friendship or romantic relationship clearly. Wait until after the 24th to make any partnership-related decisions.

On November 21st, the Sun will ingress into Sagittarius and your 4th house of home and family. Enjoy spending time with family. Getting out in nature will feel especially renewing. Over the coming weeks, family vacations will be favored, and a family member may seek your mentorship.

" ["december"]=> string(2744) "

Home and family will be a big focus this month. Many cultures celebrate holidays in December, making it a great month to spend time with loved ones. With Mercury retrograde December 3rd - 22nd, it will be wise to allow extra time to reach your destination, if traveling. The energy will direct your attention to the past. Consider a family photo or scrapbooking party to help preserve your memories.

You’ll be preparing for some changes next year that can offer you creative inspiration and dedication to your expression of choice. When it comes to romance, things could get more serious. Whether attached or single, you’ll be learning through your relationships and deciding what works for you and what doesn’t. The Winter Solstice on the 21st is an optimal time for reflection. Be sure to give yourself credit for past accomplishments as you look forward to new challenges.

The Full Moon on the 3rd will be in Gemini and your 10th house of public image. Because Mercury is stationing retrograde on this day, you could receive recognition that’s long overdue. It will be a great time to step into the spotlight and take on a leadership role. Networking can help you to connect with people who can help advance your goals. Brainstorm new ideas, but hold off on taking action until after January 5th, when we’ll be free from Mercury’s retrograde effects.

The New Moon on the 18th will be in Sagittarius and your 4th house home and family.

Put these themes together, and you may find yourself on an exciting family vacation or relocating somewhere new next year.

Saturn moves into Capricorn on December 19th, setting the stage for new life lessons in 2018 related to romance and your unique creative expression. When Saturn visits an area of your birth chart, it’s time to do some “homework.” It could feel as if relationships take more effort now, but the work you put in will be justly rewarded. Take the time to learn about making better connections with loved ones. Creative projects could be a focus next year as well. For best results, make a long term plan and create a system to keep yourself accountable.

2018 begins with a Full Moon in Cancer on the 1st, which will encourage socializing and appreciating your friends. Group activities will be favored, especially if you are working with others for a common cause. You could feel called to volunteer in your community. You’ll feel a strong connection to close friends and might need to exchange emotional support with someone you love.

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 intentions related to romantic partnership, creative projects, or any children or grandchildren in your life.

Uranus will station direct on the 2nd, ending a retrograde cycle that began on August 3, 2017. Over the past five months, feelings of restlessness may have been brewing, and you could be wishing for more personal freedom. Now that this planet of rebellion will be moving forward, you’ll want to take action that helps you to express your individuality. Loved ones could be surprised by your ideas, but you’re ready to turn over a new leaf. You could feel resistant to the advice of others, but it will be wise to strike a compromise. You do need to stay true to yourself, but moderation will be the key to your success.

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a harmonious trine during the first half of the month. Communication and partnership will be strong themes, and it will be easier to express yourself to others during this time.

If single, this will be a great time to attract someone who shares your ideals and appreciates how you view the world.

The month concludes with a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st. It could be time to share a hidden talent with others. Perhaps you have some creative ideas that you’ve been keeping a secret for fear they’re not “good enough.” Forget about impressing others and do something creative that brings you joy. Others can benefit from your talents and you have the ability to bring out the “inner child” in those around you. If you started working on a creative project during the eclipses of August 2017, you could see beautiful results from your efforts around this time.

" ["march"]=> string(3203) "

You’ll have the ability to gain closure on a complicated situation this month. The astrology will support valuable self-realizations and creating healthier dynamics within your intimate relationships and/or business dealings.

The Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, signaling the Vernal Equinox and the Astrological New Year. However, it won’t be time to jump into new projects or make major decisions just yet. Mercury will station retrograde on the 22nd, and we’ll feel the effects as early as March 8th. Focus on finishing what you’ve started before beginning anything new.

The first Full Moon in March will be on the 1st, in your Sun Sign! This means you’re primed to receive more clarity regarding a relationship and/or your own feelings. Notice what emotions rise to the surface around this time, and take a time out if you start to feel agitated. It can be tempting to focus on what other people are doing instead of attending to your own needs. Bring your attention back to yourself and any feelings of dissatisfaction with those around you will likely dissipate.

We’ll be under the influence of Mercury retrograde throughout most of the month (after March 8th). It is a great time to make revisions to legal documents or business agreements and clear up past debts. You may feel the need to reconnect with loved ones and put a dispute to rest. It will be a good time to talk about the past and make amends.

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 7th house of partnership. Use the power of this New Moon to set intentions related to marriage, romantic relationships, platonic friendships, and business partnerships. You’ll be supported in efforts to create a loving atmosphere for all types of relationships in your life.

The second Full Moon in a month is a rarity known as a “Blue Moon.” The March 31st Blue Moon will be in the sign of Libra, highlighting your 2nd house of finance and material resources.

" ["april"]=> string(3632) "

This will be a good month to reconnect with others and let go of feelings from the past that may be preventing you from living in the present. You’re scheduled for some reflective time that will allow you to honor the path you’ve walked so far. If you’ve felt “stuck,” this can be a month to honor your past for helping you become the person you are today.

Mercury will be retrograde through the 15th, but we’ll feel the influence all month due to the “shadow phase” of this phenomenon. Focus on releasing limiting thoughts, and give yourself permission to move forward in May, when we’ve cleared Mercury’s retrograde cycle.

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

Jupiter and Neptune are working together in a favorable trine that begins this month and will be in effect for the next six months. This astrology creates a favorable climate for romantic partnerships, platonic friendships, and business agreements. You’ll be more able to “go with the flow,” which can help open your mind to new opportunities. Others will have resources and ideas to offer. This isn’t a time to go it alone, but that doesn’t mean you have to do anything you don’t want to do. However, you might have to reach a compromise and practice setting healthy boundaries. Loved ones and professional contacts will respect your inner strength and diplomacy.

Meanwhile, both Saturn and Pluto will station retrograde this month in your 5th house of romance and creativity (Saturn on the 17th and Pluto on the 22nd). This could be a time where you feel drawn to return to a creative activity that used to inspire you. You’ll have the self-discipline necessary to integrate a creative practice into your life and commit to a long-term project. It’s possible that you’ve had fears related to your creative expression that need to be released so you can be free to enjoy an artistic outlet.

The Scorpio Full Moon on the 29th will highlight your 3rd house of learning and communication. You’ll gain clarity about what’s been going on beneath the surface around this time.

" ["may"]=> string(3451) "

This is a great month for new beginnings--especially when it comes to your relationships and shared finances. Mercury will clear its retrograde shadow on the 3rd, giving you the cosmic green light to move ahead with decisions and commitments. You’ll be supported in your efforts to honor your individuality and set healthy boundaries with loved ones. If you share finances or other resources with a family member or partner, this is an excellent month to strategize and plan your next steps.

The Jupiter-Neptune trine continues this month, and will be exact during the last half of May. The significant relationships in your life right now have a special importance to your spiritual development. This favorable astrology will help you to make deeper connections by expressing yourself to loved ones. If you’ve been the type of person who keeps your feelings hidden, this is an excellent time to practice sharing within your close circles. Even if you do always say what’s on your mind, you’ll be learning to communicate with greater compassion in order to heal the past and strengthen your relationships.

The Taurus New Moon on the 15th will be in your 9th house of travel, adventure and higher education. This is a fantastic New Moon to start planning a big trip or look into taking some classes. Any intentions related to expanding your horizons and/or gaining knowledge will be supported.

The 15th is also the day Uranus will ingress into Taurus after spending approximately seven years in Aries. If you were born August 24 - 28, of any year, you could feel the effects of this astrology moreso than your peers. Uranus will be working harmoniously with your Sun sign to help you make necessary life changes that move you in alignment with your authentic self.

The past seven years may have brought all Virgos changes related to your work in the world or how others perceive you. That chapter is coming to a close and you’ll soon be ready to embrace new adventures that ignite your passion for life and desire for spiritual fulfillment. Keep an open mind and take any unexpected circumstances as a sign that you’re meant to do things differently now. Consider mentoring others and seek out learning opportunities for yourself.

" ["june"]=> string(3104) "

Neptune, planet of the subconscious, will station retrograde opposite your Sun this month. Everyone gets a little “fuzzy” when this happens, but you may feel this phenomenon more so than your peers. Avoid making major decisions around this time, particularly when it comes to partnership. You’ll need a little extra time for yourself to determine what you need before making plans with others.

The Gemini New Moon on the 13th offers support for intentions related to writing, public speaking, networking, promotion, and learning new skills. You could be called upon to speak about or teach a topic in your area of expertise. Others will be interested in the information you have to offer based on your life experience.

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. Your subconscious mind is ready to release old thought patterns and heal from the past.

Trust your intuition, and discuss your feelings with a partner or someone close. It could be difficult to see your situation clearly, but loved ones can offer valuable feedback. It will also be great timing to work with a counselor or other professional who can assist you with emotional healing.

On the 21st, the Sun will ingress into Cancer, signifying the Summer Solstice. You may receive social invitations as this is a time to celebrate with others! Attending gatherings in your community will be uplifting and remind you that you’re surrounded by love and support. It will be great timing to get involved in volunteer projects that help those in need.

Mars goes retrograde on the 26th in the sign of Aquarius, initiating a cycle that lasts until August 27th. You’re encouraged to finish what you’ve started during this time. It will be a fantastic time to restart any health-related programs that may have slipped from your daily schedule. If you used to exercise with a friend or in a group, it could be time to re-join them in these activities.

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will light up your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Creative projects may come to fruition and you’ll be inspired to spend time with loved ones. A grandchild or other child in your life could look to you for guidance. You’ll have wisdom to offer regarding leadership, time management, and taking responsibility for commitments.

" ["july"]=> string(2944) "

This is a good month for socializing and catching up with anyone you’ve lost touch with. The Sun will be in Cancer until the 21st, highlighting your 11th house of friendship and community. Enjoy getting out and about. Group projects will be favored. On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Leo, and your 12th house of subconscious and spirituality. The last 10 days of the month could have a more introverted feel. You may be inspired to work on a creative project by yourself and take some quiet time for contemplation.

The Solar Eclipse / New Moon in Cancer on July 12th will be a powerful time to set intentions related to collaboration, community service, and friendships. You could feel called to help others in need. Look for ways to stay connected within your community and contribute your time and talents. Extend your hospitality. It will be a good time to set goals related to relocation. Because we’re experiencing both Mars and Mercury retrograde this month, it won’t be the best time for real estate transactions. Do some research and realize that it could take until the next Eclipse pair in January, 2019, for your ideas to take shape.

Mercury, your ruling planet, will station retrograde in Leo on the 26th, but we’ll feel the effects as early as the 7th due to the shadow phase of this phenomenon. This energy encourages rest, reflection, and renewal. You could be inspired to write a memoir or honor some of your memories by organizing old photographs. Children and grandchildren will enjoy learning about your past.

You’ll also want to take it easy physically as Mars will be retrograde all month in your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. Maintain your current regimens or reinstate an exercise program that you’ve let slip from your schedule. The key is to keep things slow and steady, as you’re not meant to push yourself at this time. Exercising in groups or with friends can help you stay on track.

A Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon on the 27th will also activate your 6th house of daily routines and wellness. You may have some awareness about your time management and the need to prioritize your efforts. You’re usually the first to offer a helping hand, but take a look at what you need to do for yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, as others will be eager to return the favor.

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 commit to your personal growth.
