The force generated by a person’s thought, word and deed, which perpetuates reincarnation and determines the nature of their present and future existence. When, where and how Karma manifests in life is purely based on the individual and how close they are to Natural Law, which can be determined from their Natal Chart (birth chart). It’s written in the Stars.
• Money. Sex and Power are the three main drives of the human race. Other areas, such as health, work, family, family, friends etc., are all sub-headings to these three areas of life.
PLEASE NOTE: READ BOTH SUN SIGN AND RISING SIGN TO GET MORE ACCURATE INSIGHT FOR THE YEAR. THE RISING SIGN IS THE SIGN THAT REPRESENTS THE 1ST HOUSE.
• Money: Start the year giving focus to current goals/ambitions and what you can do to improve, grow and prosper, especially while Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn. But at the same time it’s not a good idea to start anything legal or sign contractual agreements until after June 9th. From a creative perspective the path of least resistance isn’t going to bring the success you desire, therefore, once the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happens on February 10th, you’ll see clearly that you need to take greater risks and think bigger, because most of the time you act on impulse, leading to sorrow/self-undoing and not learning from past mistakes. Saturn retrograde April 6th - September 25th, is perfect if you’re thinking to going back to school to learn something that would greatly enlarge your mind and perspective in new ways. Publishing, literary and other cultures are positively aspected. April 9th - May 3rd, Mercury retrogrades yet again in the sign of Taurus, your second house of money, material possessions/self worth. This is a time for budgeting. saving, being careful not to overspend and improving your relationship with money overall. You could also experience fear, insecurity and doubt about finances, as a result of the meddling/undermining in your financial affairs from people who don’t have your best interests at heart, in particular when Pluto retrogrades April 20th - Sept 28th, in the house o career, goals, authority/power. However, you can use this period of time to “clean house” transform career, goals, ambitions and work on how you interact with those in positions of authority/power. Focus on the areas that are weak and need to be rebuilt/strengthened, getting rid of any negativity affecting progress.
• Work could again be an issue, when Mercury retrogrades, August/September in the sign of Virgo, August 12th - September 5th. A time to be careful of criticism of others or towards you, from employees/employers, because words said could spiral out of control and create a bigger problem/used against you. By the beginning of October your should be ready to start a business/project, the stars are supportive of fulfillment from new ventures. Just watch out for another Mercury retrograde in December 2nd - 22nd, when you could be led off on a tangent and legal matters could take a different unexpected turn. News from abroad could also arrive and you maybe offered a chance to study in a different country or state, with people from all over the world.
• Saturn will be moving into your house of career, goals, authority and power December 19th for 3yrs, joining Pluto in the same house. If you haven’t started to get this area of life together by then it could be rough cycle of taking/fearing responsibility for your actions. The Universe will bring up issues/challenges you’ve ignored and need to be confronted. On the positive side Saturn “rewards” “work” well done, so it’s up to you to be focused, diligent and ready to make changes in your life.
• Sex: Jupiter retrograde in Libra, February 6th - June 9th, highlights love and log-term relationships in your life. Indicating that before any love you’re involved in can grow there must be mutual honesty about joint goals in the relationship, perceptions and desires, at least if you want to maintain harmony and unity. Don’t use the Aries combative approach to “brow-beat”your partner to agree to what you want without taking their needs/feelings into consideration. Diplomacy, tact, tolerance and understanding will produce a more positive outcome. However, you may find that a romance ends in early February, unexpectedly but a new one comes into your life by the end of August. This is a year of challenging yourself to do better in love, treating your partner the way you want them to treat you. Lead by example.
• Power: 2017 is a year to use the energy of your opposite sign Libra to re-invent Self. Soften the rough/hard edges, being assertive without threatening others to react against you. Yes, Aries love to be competitive and take the lead, but this year it’s all about unity through diversity, that in the end will lead you to success, happiness and prosperity. August and September pay attention to health/diet. New beginnings and a new you on all levels.
• Money: Going back to an old familiar structure of work, business or study, isn’t going to create the improvements you desire. It would be wiser to stay where you are and work with existing gains and accomplishments. Moving won’t help either because Mercury is retrograde December 19th - January 8th and Jupiter (expansion and travel), retrograde February 6th - June 9th. While Jupiter is retrograde try to improve relationships with employers/employees, there may also be extra workloads as a result of changes implemented by the “powers-that-be” and partnerships that will be short-lived. When Venus retrogrades March 4th - April 15th in Aries, you’ll need to look at mistakes made as a result of acting on impulse and not thinking things through especially when it comes to money. In particular this is definitely not a time to start a new business/project until the cycle is over. Joint financial partnerships will be under review April 6th - August 25th when Saturn retrogrades. Obviously the foundation of the partnership isn’t as strong as you may think/led to believe and will need attention to detail to find the problems. At the end of this cycle you may want to branch out on your own, which wouldn’t be a bad idea if you’re serious about doing better for yourself. At the same time you’ll have to deal with your own insecurities that really hold you back from “stepping into the unknown” and doing things differently. Playing by the book only works up to a point, then there comes a time when you have to be fearless and take a “leap of faith” into unfamiliar territory. By the end of the year when Saturn also joins Pluto, you’ll be “held back” by the Universe from expanding horizons too far away and if you do, only for a short time. This aspect will prepare you for the eventual “leap” once the cycle is over. By the end of the year, the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will be urging you to bring about an extraordinary change/move involving existing career and ambitions. However, past debts, mistakes, people in authority/power, inhibitors and sudden setbacks could get in the way. Ultimately you’ll have to make a supreme effort to free yourself from limitations/restrictions placed on you by others.
• Sex: Jupiter in Libra retrograde February 6th - June 9th, indicates you need to work harder at love with those you want to be with on a long-term basis, although even short-term love needs attention too. This is a time to figure things out and come to a better understanding with your partner before you consider going to the next level. When Mercury retrogrades in Virgo August 12th - September 5th, you’ll have to give careful thought about whether or not the love in your life serves your needs or are you with someone just to fill in time? You know the answer deep down but need to face it and deal with it this year. Jupiter moving into Scorpio October 10th for one year, will magnify the best and worst of your love-life and it’s up to you to make it better, because there will be a lot of admirers coming into your life for you to practice.
• Power: You may find that some aspect of home, family, foundation of life, no longer works and has to end in February, courtesy of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo. If this occurs make the change as gently/compassionate as you possibly can, without causing too much hurt, harm, pain or sorrow, because of your stubborn need to have your own way without thought of the consequences to others. Also take into consideration there are people in your life who are afraid they’ll be left behind once you do make a move, but the truth of the matter is you can’t be all things to all people or allow them to run your life.
• By August you’ll be ready for something new or at least thinking about it and an offer will be presented to you by the end of August. One of your greatest assets this year will be knowing when to move and when to standstill - knowing that astrological cycles help because the Universe brings retrogrades, eclipses etc., for a reason, to highlight areas of life/behavior that are being ignored and need attention.
• When Saturn moves into Capricorn for three years December 19th, you’ll feel the need to do some soul-searching, to stop look and listen to your inner voice for direction, or even learn how to do this, because Saturn in a sign is “saying” that the way you’re moving through life isn’t supportive of growth or building a structure for positive outcomes to occur, so you’re being left behind to stagnate. Therefore, 2017 is the year to start exploring internally/externally, especially because Jupiter in Scorpio will bring opportunities to be in the public eye.
• Money: With Mercury in Capricorn as the year starts, you’ll be focused on existing joint financial partnerships, what you’re being told, which isn’t necessarily accurate or at best temporary. While Pluto is retrograde in this same area of life April 20th - September 29th. You must be careful of fear, insecurity and doubt, from Self and others undermining progress. You will need to be strong enough to rise above this, using your internal strength to see where your success and prosperity lies. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to start tapping into latent creative talents, that could be considered unique and you know would make you happy. This cycle is for you to be honest with Self and release this talent into the world. Any conflicts you experience will be over by early October. Venus retrogrades March 6th - April 15th, hopes and wishes involving friends/groups may well come back into the forefront. The question is, is it worth it to go back in order to go forward - maybe on a short-term basis but not long-term. When Venus moves back into Pisces, April 1st - 28th, partnerships with people in authority/power could re-emerge from the past to lend support, probably only temporarily.
• The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo February 10th, will bring about an ending to projects and plans that really aren’t in your best interests. See this as an opportunity for something new, bigger, better and more positive to fill the void by mid-August. At the same time towards the end of February you could experience disappointment because individuals in authority/power don’t follow through with promises/commitments. However, this will be temporary too because by early August the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will bring an unexpected surprise, as major changes in work, home, friendships and lifestyle show signs of emerging, as as a result of events that occur.
• Sex: Saturn in Sagittarius and retrograde, April 6th - April 20th, shines a light on the structure of your love-life, is it weak, strong, firm or shaky. Most likely weak and shaky in parts. Spend the time during this cycle to really try to put things back together again, that is if you care enough and decide where you want the relationship to go. Jupiter in Libra also retrograde February 6th - June 9th, shows that with a little work and effort you can accomplish what you want to happen in love. Don’t forget self-love, this is a key component part to a successful love relationship. Knowing you deserve the best and building bridges between you and your partner.
• Power: This is a year to maintain/build your personal power and not allow others to diminish it in any way. When Mercury retrogrades in Taurus April 9th - May 3rd, make sure that old karma affecting self-worth that brought sorrow and self-undoing is confronted and dealt with. Don’t ignore it because of fear you can’t deal with situations that occur. Once again, Mercury retrogrades August 12th - Sept 5th in Virgo, highlighting home, family, foundation of life. The question is whether or not your needs are being served or certain individuals are causing unnecessary stress/difficulty on purpose in order to cause upset.
• By the time December comes Saturn will be moving into a new sign, Capricorn for three years, joining Pluto in the same house. Stability and security will be the main focus, to reorganize joint financial partnerships or build new ones that can support goals and ambitions, also having to deal with the past. The good thing about Saturn is, it “rewards” when challenges have been successfully met and overcome. This will give you an indication of what to expect. Jupiter will also be moving into Scorpio October 10th for one year, into the house of health/work. Opportunity to expand work horizons will be abundant throughout this time. Health should also be close to the top of the list of things to pay attention to, diet, stress and exercise. You could also put on weight if you’re not careful - Jupiter favors expansion and growth. Better health and well being will enable you to cope with the workload and enjoy the financial prosperity this transit will bring. Moving could also be on your mind during this cycle. Getting a bigger space in a different area to live in, that accommodates work, because you’ll most likely be working from home too.
• 2017 is a year to grow, move forward and surround yourself with “healthy” people in mind, spirit and soul.
• Money: The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse February 10th indicates that the way you’ve been earning money will change on/around this date. Work has made you happy on certain levels but now it’s time to move on to greener pastures, even more so if you’re involved with friends and groups of people, that in essence you’ve outgrown. This is a case of waking up and seeing the truth/reality of the direction you’ve been moving towards all this time, realizing that you’re now stagnating. If you’e made any financial investments along the way you could end up losing money by the end of February. However, by the end of August opportunity will present itself for you to recoup losses. Saturn in your house of work is also a sign that the foundation of your employment isn’t strong and could crumble at any time. When Saturn retrogrades April 6th - August 25th, you should pay attention to health/well -being because you could be overworked and experience tremendous stress, which in turn affects you physically. Once Venus retrogrades in Aries, March 4th - April 15th, partnerships with people connected to career/ambitions should be avoided - not a good time to be joining forces on a long-term basis, plus you won’t get the support promised. Venus will retrograde back into Pisces, April 1st - 28th, putting emphasis on learning something new to enlarge your perception of life and developing greater self-awareness. Be careful of getting caught up in fantasy about people/far-away places and studies that would pull you away from your life purpose. Not a good time for legal matters or travel. After the 28th Venus moves forward back into Aries and people will be more willing and responsive to help/support. If all goes well, by the beginning of October you should be in a better places to start something new and reap rewards. Mercury retrograde in Taurus, April 9th - May3rd, focuses on all and everything to do with money, friends, groups, hopes and wishes. Avoid signing any agreement or even verbally agreeing to anything at all. You can plan, discuss and research but need to wait until the cycle is over before actually implementing anything with anyone. The next retrograde in Virgo August 12th - September 5th, will put you in a position to be criticized by others and vice versa, especially when it comes to discussing your ideas. Perhaps listening to constructive criticism could be of help in some way.
• When Jupiter switches signs October 10th, moving from Libra to Scorpio for one year, you’ll be motivated to stop being your own worst enemy and a martyr, which is responsible for creating unnecessary crisis in your life. Past mistakes will come back to haunt you, so you can learn from them and move forward, hopefully.
• Sex: 2017 will definitely be a year when love is a major focus. Pluto currently resides in your house of long-term partnerships until 2023. When it retrogrades April 20th to September 28th, you’ll once again be plagued with fear and insecurity about love, holding you back from making necessary changes. The fear has to do with being alone. This is irrational because the relationship at this time isn’t supportive of things continuing harmoniously on a long-term basis or a foundation of mutual love, respect, tolerance and understanding. At the same time any relationships connected to the home/family environment will also need work while Jupiter is retrograde in Libra February 6th - June 9th and if you want to move it would be wise to wait until after this cycle is over. Once Jupiter enters Scorpio, October 10th for one year and your house of romance, new love interests will be abundant. You just have to pick and choose with care and stay away from people already attached, because the undermining, secretive, jealous influence will be very strong during this cycle. Plus childhood memories affecting love will resurface for you to confront. The year will end with Saturn entering the house of long-term partnerships December 19th, joining Pluto. Urging you to take responsibility for how you want long-term love to be structured. How you respond and deal with the issues that arise will determine whether this transit is a easy or difficult. Take note it will be in this house for three years.
• Power: 2017 is going to be a challenging year of having to be focused disciplined and responsible for the areas of life that aren’t up to par. You have the free-will to decide what, if anything you plan to do about the issues you’ll be facing. At the same time being aware of people who will try to manipulate you for their own benefit. However, take into consideration, the Universe never brings anything into our lives that we are not capable of dealing with.
• Money: Mercury is retrograde in your house of work/health, an indication that you must create a structure/make decisions that support health and well-being, plus working with people who are healthy in mind, spirit and soul. Pluto is also in this house, meaning you can either transform/regenerate everything pertaining to work, including employees/employers or undermine/destroy. The choices you make now will have a lasting effect, showing rewards or losses later this year, especially when Saturn (the teacher) joins Pluto in this house, urging you to take responsibility for the choices made. Therefore, think very carefully before deciding on anything. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo, brings an end to how, up to now, you have presented yourself to the world and how the world sees you. A time to act out of practicality/patience without “threatening” others to react against you. Avoid acting prematurely or with haste. This is a cycle to differentiate between true will/life purpose and personal desires.
• In late August you’ll again be presented with important decisions to make. Any new partnerships forged at the end of January/early February could, if you’re not careful or paying attention, create/cause sorrow/self-un doing financially, courtesy of the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces. This will occur if you choose to see/hear what you want to see/hear. If you’re able to see through the “veil” off illusion/delusion, this scenario can be avoided hopefully, because the outcome could be a potential “Pandoras Box”. Venus in Aries retrograde, March 4th - April 15th, does not favor forming partnerships, signing contractual agreements or any financial deals. Discussion works, but nothing else. Once Venus moves back into Pisces, April 1st - April 28th, you’ll have to be extra careful again of joint financial partnerships, that on the surface are not what they appear to be and would be be better off left alone. Inadvertently, this could also be a “trap” laid by someone with malicious intent towards you, so be alert and aware at all times during this particular transit. Jupiter in Libra retrograde April 6th - June 9th, highlights business, projects, plans and ideas. As mentioned earlier, retrogrades do not favor forward motion and with this aspect, Libra represents all forms of partnership. Wait until later in June to join forces with anyone in this area of life. During this time you need to give careful thought to where you’re going, who with and how you plan to get there. Try to come to a better understanding with Self and others throughout all these particular retrogrades. Venus retrograde will also influence you to take a look at the beliefs you hold onto and live by and motivate you through life and cause you to behave in a way that creates more disharmony than anything else. Are these beleifs helping and supporting you through turbulent times or is it time to rethink and open your mind to a new perspective. If you’re able to embody some type of self-awareness, you’ll see and know very clearly what needs to change.
• At the same time stubbornness is not a good idea during Mercury retrograde in Taurus,April 9th - May 3rd, especially when dealing with people in authority/power. Even if you know or think you’re right, try to find unity through diversity and agree to disagree. The next Mercury retrograde in virgo August 12th - September 5th, will greatly diminish/weaken acceptance of any idea/projects you suggest to others, especially if you’re not able to accept constructive criticism. Try to listen to advice offered and consider implementation, because there is worth and value in what is being shared. Ultimately financial prosperity and career success is greatly determined by how well you work with others and are willing to meet them half way.
• Sex: Saturn in your house of love, urges you to work with your partner allowing the relationship to grow in a positive way and not let things go stale/stagnant. Once Saturn retrogrades April 6th - August 25th - August 25th, problems and difficulties could arise to show you the weaknesses in the foundation of your love-life, that need attention, so you can take responsibility for your part in the way things are. This is a time to grow up and realize truth/honesty play an important part in helping a relationship to be successful and not to play games that cause pain and sorrow to another person. You may well be faced with this when Mercury retrogrades December 2nd - 22nd in Sagittarius and the relationship could suddenly end. If this happens talk to your partner, find out the reasons for what is happening and learn from the experience. If you consider leaving the relationship, remember, we always take our “baggage” with us wherever we go.
• Power: Jupiter will be moving into Scorpio for one year October 10th, affecting home, family and foundation. of life. This transit indicates that a transformation of some sort will happen for better or worse, a move of some type ,most likely or major overhaul of existing living space. Not so good thing about this transit, is the potential for self-destruction, which could also be a catalyst for the transformation, which largely depends on how things have been going up to that point.
• 2017 is a year or Leo to understand the meaning of Cause and Effect. The main issue being, not to do anything without serious forethought, otherwise major upheaval could manifest in your life.
• Money: Jupiter is currently in your house of money, material possessions and self worth, until October 10th when the planet moves into Scorpio and your house of projects, plans and ideas. While Jupiter is in your house of finance, forming partnerships with people who can expand your earning potential is important. But even more important is creating a stronger sense of self-worth and self-confidence so you can move beyond your financial comfort zone without fear, insecurity or doubt. While Jupiter is retrograde February 6th - June 9th, all the above will be impressed upon you by the Universe, in order for opportunities to start coming your way. Once the planet moves into your house of business, projects, plans and ideas, everything you’ve been working on will be in a position to bear fruit and be transformed into lucrative success. Venus will retrograde into Aries March 4th - April 15th, affecting joint financial partnerships that may not be living up to your expectations and turn out to be hard work for very little money. If you can’t get a raise, then you know the “writing” is on the wall to leave, which could happen by the Full Moon in Aries, early October.
• With the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse affecting karmic debt, sorrow, self-undoing, all things hidden and large institutions, you may discover that something/someone that has brought negativity into your life is removed or at least “put on notice” by the Universe so to speak. Once this occurs the path will be clear for bigger/better things to start happening by the end of August. Also in August something unexpected could again affect employment, that takes you by surprise but leaves you with genius ideas of what to do next and how to present yourself differently to the world. Both Mercury retrograde in “Taurus, April 9th - May 3rd and Mercury retrograde in Virgo August 12th - September 5th, will highlight not only how you think/feel about money, your prosperity consciousness, how it affects your success, but also how you present yourself to those you work with/for, how they see you and whether or not your needs are being served/you serve them.
• Sex: Venus will retrograde into Pisces, April 1st - April 28th in the house oblong-term partnerships, during which time the core essence of your love relationship will be at the forefront, for you to make the most of its worth/value. Pluto is also in your house of romance for several years, helping you transform and rise above childhood/teen issues that have affected and shaped the way you interact on a romantic level. When Pluto retrogrades, April 20th - September 28th, fears etc, from the past will come to the forefront of your mind affecting your ability to love and be happy in love. Learning from past mistakes in love will help and listening to constructive advice will empower you to have greater self-awareness of how you behave and what you can do to improve. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces February 26th, effects long-term partnerships, influencing you to solidify the foundation/commitment between and you partner in order to be both on the same page and start a new chapter. Once Saturn joins Pluto in the house of romance you’ll feel more stable and secure with love in your life, but you’ll still notice the small faults and weaknesses that linger for you to deal with and overcome. This will be a cycle of deciding what you want in love and whether or not you’re willing to work hard with your partner to construct a powerful long-lasting relationship centered in mutual understanding of each other.
• Power: Saturn currently in Sagittarius until December 19th, resides in your house of home, family and foundation of life, emphasizing, preserving security and improving upon what you have already gained at this time. The decisions you make at this time will have long-term consequences and effects. In addition realizing that when Saturn moves into the house of creativity you’ll have the Universe on your side, enabling you to take anything that demonstrates your goals/ambitions and molding them into something special. Diet is also an area to be aware of in order to restrict foods that your body reacts to with imbalance. Listen to the “messages’ your body sends. Cleaning up your life will be the focus for 2017, not forgetting to have compassion for people close and around you. You may still have to confront experiences form the past in order to get rid of them once and for all, however the Universe is again on your side to help you “breeze” through everything you’re confronted with. In essence, 2017 is the year to really “polish” the facets of your character and make them shine.
• Money: Jupiter in Libra until October 10th emphasizes how you present yourself to the world and how the world sees you. You need to think big and do everything you can to showcase your talents with the intent to attract attention. Once Jupiter retrogrades February 6th - June 9th, the highlight is more internal, building a strong, harmonious relationship with Self and finding weaknesses that inhibit self-expression, empowering you to take courageous steps into the unknown. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on February 10th, effects the house of groups, friends, hopes and wishes, indicating a possibility of unexpected separations, change of job, home or certain friends. A time to make appropriate changes to hopes/wishes, especially if they’re creative. This is also a time when, however things have been going expect a sudden turn of events, you may even find yourself coming to the front/center of attention. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces, February 26th, indicates that if you’re not clear about anything you’re being asked to do you should go to the source, speaking clearly and and simply in order to avoid misunderstandings. By the time August arrives, the opportunity for achievement with a creative venture comes to reality. Saturn currently in Sagittarius until December 19th, is urging you to build a firmer foundation for projects, plans and ideas, in order to gain greater recognition/interest. The emphasis to make all your endeavors solid is even stronger when Saturn retrogrades April 6th - August 29th. Mercury retrograde in Taurus, April 9th - May 3rd, will shine a light on joint financial partnership changes that may have to be made, but not a time to put pen to paper until after the cycle is over. The next Mercury retrograde in Virgo, August 12th - September 5th, will make financial negotiations difficult and even more so if you have to sign a contract to start work/project, most of all make sure what you’re being offered serves your needs. The last retrograde December 2nd -22nd in Sagittarius, focuses on how you want to expand horizons/move forward with the things you’re trying to accomplish.
• The best financial aspect this year will be Jupiter moving into Scorpio and your house of money material possessions and self-worth. Everything you have been working on up to this point will now have a chance to be transformed into considerable monetary gain, if you’ve paid attention to detail and implemented new structures to support your projects. This isn’t a a time to “hide” but to put your best foot forward and work with those of like-mind who will support you along the way. By the end of this cycle November 2018, your finances should have moved from a minus to plus.
• Sex: Venus in your house of long-term partnerships, retrogrades March 4th - April 15th, in the sign of Aries, highlighting being empowered about the type of person you want to be be with and what you want fro love. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for love but you should avoid acting on impulse during the retrograde cycle or focusing primarily on the physical. This cycle is not a good one to start anything new either. If you do it will be over by October - unless you want a relationship that is short-term. Venus will retrograde back into Pisces, April 1st - April 28th, signifying there is work to be done and to avoid being caught up in the fantasy aspect of love and nothing else. Relationships could come to a sudden end early August without warning, or at least drastically change. If this happens it’’ll cause you to reconsider how you interact with others on a personal level.
• Power: Pluto now sits in your house of home, family and foundation of life, focusing on transformations that need to happen for your home to be more comfortable, stable and secure. Issues that effect the stability and security of your home, that seem out of your control, will be easier to resolve when Saturn joins Pluto in this house in December. Saturn always brings stability/ways to create it so that any problems you’re currently experiencing should be taken care of. With family, especially the mother, you may find yourself in a position where it’s necessary to clarify feelings about Self and your needs so that you feel more empowered about being independent.
• The key message for 2017. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, whether from friends, family or of a spiritual nature. If you understand and follow the planetary cycles, the support will be there when you need it.
• Money: With Pluto in your third house of business, projects plans and ideas, the Universe is showing you that aspects of this area of life need a major overhaul. The internal blocks and fears that prevent you from using more of your creative potential must be overcome, because the ideas you’re working on now and the way you communicate them to the public are stale and stagnant and not having a profound effect on those who hear what you have to say. That’s why it feels as if you’re taking two steps forward and one step backwards. Once Saturn joins Pluto in this house December 19th, you’ll be at the point where it’ll be very clear revamping is desperately needed. Currently Saturn is in Sagittarius,, residing over the house of money, material possessions and self-worth, urging you to be honest about how you earn money and how you should take responsibility for the financial issues you’re experiencing. Once Saturn retrogrades April 6th - August 25th, financial increase will slow down and you’ll need to re-asses what to do to fix it. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo February 10th, effects career, goals, ambitions, authority and power, indicating that the support you’ve received in this area, especially from people in authority/power could end, which will reveal the flaws/weaknesses that need strengthening. Once you’re free you can focus on being more independent in thinking and action. By the end of August, new doors will open to fill the void. With Venus in Aries and going retrograde March 4th - April 15th, the relationship with employees and employers will be the focus. During this particular cycle be careful of conflict that gets blown out of proportion and causes considerable disharmony.. Changes/many false starts could also occur that are unnerving and disruptive. By early October, some aspect of work will come to an end, either by the impetus of others or your own actions.
• Mercury retrograde in Virgo, August 12th - September 5th, indicates you’ll have to go back to the “drawing board”, to look at whether or not what you’re doing actually serves your needs/anyone else or is it just a one-sided endeavor. By the end of the year Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, December 2nd - 22nd, emphasizes it’s really time to think differently with a different approach to making money. Luckily Jupiter moving into your sign on October 10th for one year, brings many opportunities for you to reinvent how you present yourself to the world. A time to prosper, succeed, overcome and assert yourself forward in new ways.
