Prosperity is ultra-strong this month – and will get even better next month. With prosperity comes the freedom to pursue your spiritual interests. This is the main headline of the month.
Your 12th house of spirituality is chock-full of planets: 60 per cent of the planets are there or moving through there. This is a lot of power. Your ESP and spiritual faculties are unusually strong. You are making all kinds of spiritual types of breakthroughs – and when these happen it is a most joyous thing. It’s like being let out of prison. There is a great sigh of relief. All kinds of supernatural experiences will happen. Your dream life is probably more interesting and exciting than your everyday life. Saturn, your spiritual planet, has been in your sign for over a year now and will be here for the rest of the year ahead. So you are seen as spiritual, altruistic and philanthropic. You are being given spiritual teaching to help you mould and shape the body by spiritual means. The truth is that the body is totally subservient to spirit.
On the 20th the Sun moves into your sign and you begin a yearly personal pleasure peak. A good time to indulge in the pleasures of the body and senses – a good time to pamper the body. Also an excellent time to get the body and image into the shape that you want it.
Almost all – 90 per cent – of the planets are in the independent Eastern sector of your chart this month (dropping to 80 per cent from the 11th to the 26th, when the Moon visits the Western sector). So you are in a period of maximum personal independence. The month ahead is all about ‘me’ – and there’s nothing wrong with that. Your self-interest, your happiness is as important as anyone else’s. So this is a time to make the changes necessary for your personal happiness. Later on in the year, when the planetary power shifts to the West, this will be more difficult to do.
Love is also happy this month. You are having love on your terms. The spouse, partner or current love is eager to please and puts you first. For singles there is nothing much you need to do to attract love. It will find you. Just go about your daily business. Before the 20th love and romantic opportunities happen in spiritual-type settings – at meditation seminars or lectures, spiritual study groups, and charitable or altruistic kinds of events.
People are catering to you these days, rather than the other way around.

Spirituality is still very important. Though your 12th house is not as prominent as last month, it is still very strong. So, review our discussion of this last month – much of what we said still applies now.
Health is excellent this month. Though there are two long-term planets in stressful alignment with you, the short-term planets are giving you support. You can enhance the health further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. In general, from the 1st to the 16th you will be more enthusiastic about health issues than after the 16th. From the 16th onwards, detox regimes are favourable. Until the 16th, therapies and treatments that build up the body are good.
The planetary power is still mostly in the East this month and the sector of self. So it’s still all about you. Your personal initiative, your personal skill and abilities are what matter. Others are catering to you these days rather than vice versa. You are having your way – as well you should. You know what’s best for you. So, it is still a good month to make those changes that need to be made for your happiness. You don’t need to consult with others.
You remain in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 18th. This might even last a little longer, as the ruler of your 5th house of fun and creativity, Mercury, enters your sign on the 15th. With Saturn in your sign for over a year now, this lightens things up a bit. Your tendency is to be too serious.
On the 18th the Sun enters the 2nd money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. For many of you this will be a lifetime peak as well. (Much depends on your age.) Friends, social contacts and the beloved are very involved and helpful in finance. Your financial intuition is supercharged. You are always a generous person, and this month even more so. Tithing is an excellent financial practice for everyone, but especially for you – and especially this month. Your love planet in the money house often brings partnership or joint venture opportunities. Although you’re very independent these days, you can’t abandon the social graces completely. Especially when it comes to finance. Your likeability plays an important role in money matters.
Until the 18th love seeks you out and there’s not much you need to do to find it. Just show up. After the 18th singles find love as they pursue their financial goals and with people who are involved with their finances.

All the planets are moving forward this month. Both your personal and the universal solar cycles are waxing (growing). And, on the 20th, the Sun moves into Aries – the best starting energy of the zodiac. So we have a clear message. Now is the time (especially after the 20th) to launch those new projects of yours, or to release new products into the world. There is much cosmic momentum behind you.
It is still a good time – if you haven’t done it already – to make the changes that need to be made for your personal happiness and well-being. Next month the Eastern sector of self won’t be as strong.
Health is still excellent this month – this in spite of two long-term planets being in stressful alignment with you. The short-term planets are supporting you. You can enhance the health even further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. You will have more enthusiasm for health matters from the 2nd to the 18th as your health planet waxes. This period is good for doing things that build up the body. After the 18th is better for detox or weight-loss regimes (where you want to get rid of things in the body).
You are still in the midst of a yearly financial peak – and from the 10th to the 20th it is even stronger than last month. We see prosperity in other ways too. The Moon will visit your money house twice this month – usually it is only once.
Both Mars and Venus enter your own sign on the 6th. Venus in your sign brings beauty and social grace. Mars in your sign brings energy and dynamism. These are happy transits as they lift some of the pessimism of Saturn in your sign.
Love is happy this month. You are attracted to wealthy people. Wealth is a romantic turn-on. Singles find love opportunities as they pursue their financial goals and with people involved in their finances. The Sun in the money house often shows the opportunity for a partnership or joint venture. (Those of you who invest can profit from mergers and acquisitions.)
On the 20th the love planet moves into your 3rd house, and the love attitudes change. Love is found close to home, in your neighbourhood or perhaps with neighbours. Mental compatibility becomes very important in love – much more so than mere wealth. You gravitate to people who are easy to talk to, with whom you can share ideas. After the 20th you are more of a ‘love at first sight’ kind of person.

The money house decreases in importance this month. On the 3rd Venus leaves the 2nd house, and on the 11th Jupiter leaves it. Mars leaves the money house too, on the 25th. Prosperity has been incredibly strong this year and by now your short-term financial goals should have been achieved and you can change your focus to intellectual interests – reading, studying and learning. This is a great month for students below college level. They are successful in their studies and even receive prizes and honours. It is good for intellectual workers as well – teachers, writers, sales and marketing people. Your communication skills are always strong, but now even more so.
Love is still close to home until the 21st. There is more socializing from home and with family members. A quiet, romantic evening at home is more alluring than a night out on the town. Emotional intimacy is as important as physical intimacy. In fact, the sharing of feelings is a kind of foreplay during this period.
This changes after the 21st as your love planet moves into your 5th house of fun and creativity. Now, a night out on the town is far more preferable than staying at home. You’re attracted to people who can show you a good time. Love has to be fun. The responsibilities of love are not taken into consideration. This position favours love affairs rather than serious committed love.
A lunar eclipse on the 16th affects you strongly, especially those of you born late in the sign of Aquarius (from February 14–18); take it nice and easy over that period. This eclipse occurs in your 10th house of career and signals career changes. Sometimes people actually change their careers with this kind of eclipse, but not usually. Usually the rules of the game change. Adjustments need to be made because of changes in your corporate hierarchy or in your industry. Job changes can also happen – sometimes within your current situation, but sometimes with another company. If you hire others there can be employee turnover, either now or in the coming months. There can also be health scares, as the eclipsed planet, the Moon, is your health planet. But your health is basically good over this period and any such scares are likely to remain just that – scares – and not be anything of substance. However, there will be changes to your health regime – major changes – in the coming months.

Health needs more attention from the 20th onwards. So enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. You have more enthusiasm for health matters from the 1st to the 16th. That period is good for building up the body. From the 16th to the 30th is a good period for detox and weight-loss regimes, for getting rid of things from the body that don’t belong there.
Though overall energy could be better, the month ahead is generally happy and prosperous. Your money house is still very powerful. Jupiter and Neptune have been there all year so far, and on the 5th Venus moves in. On the 15th Mars also joins the party. So there is much financial power these days. From the 1st to the 17th Jupiter travels with your financial planet Neptune – increasing earnings. Friends are also prospering. Venus in the money house shows that family support is good. Mars in the money house shows earnings from writing, teaching, sales, marketing and trading.
A solar eclipse on the 30th occurs in your 4th house of home and family. This often brings disturbances or shake-ups in the family circle. (By the way, good things can be just as disruptive as bad things – and good things are happening in the family that day.) Often repairs are needed in the home. Siblings and sibling figures are making important financial changes. Children and children figures are experiencing spiritual changes – they should drive more carefully during this period.
With the Sun as your love planet, every solar eclipse tests the love life – and this one is no different. You have these tests twice a year and by now you know how to handle these things. Generally, these eclipses bring up repressed grievances. These need to be dealt with. Sometimes the relationship gets tested because of some dramatic personal event in the life of the beloved. He or she could be having important career changes.
You’re still very much a ‘love at first sight’ kind of person until the 20th. Perhaps you jump into relationships too quickly and impulsively. But no matter, you’re developing courage in love. After the 20th you become more conservative. Love is close to home. Family and family connections are important in love.

Students are still doing well this month and are achieving much in their studies. Siblings, sibling figures and neighbours are kindly disposed to you and bring good fortune. In addition, they are personally prospering. The money people in your life get richer. New cars and communication equipment come to you – this is a good time to buy these things.
Health is much improved over last month and improves even further as the month progresses. You can enhance the health further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
The month ahead is happy, Aquarius. On May 21 you began one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. This will go on until the 21st of this month. So, it’s time to enjoy life. Even if life seems drab for some of you, find things that you can enjoy. You not only lift your spirits, but many problems will dissolve of their own accord.
Enjoying life will also help the love life. The romantic people in your life are looking for fun – light-heartedness. You’ve been too serious of late. Love should be happy, but, like last month, these are not the aspects for marriage, more like love affairs. Mental compatibility with the beloved is very important. Good communication – the exchange of ideas – is a form of foreplay. Love attitudes change once again after the 21st, as the Sun moves on into your 6th house. Emotional intimacy can be just as important as physical intimacy now – perhaps it is the prelude to physical intimacy. You are attracted to therapists and health professionals and perhaps to people involved in your health. Co-workers also seem alluring. Jobseekers have good fortune after the 21st and the social aspects of the job are probably given as much weight as wages, hours and benefits.
Health is good this month, yet you seem focused here after the 21st. Hopefully this is more about prevention and healthy lifestyles. Be careful not to magnify little things into bigger things.
Finances are not what they were for the first four months of the year, but they are still good – especially after the 21st.

On the 5th the preponderance of planetary power shifts to the social Western sector of your Horoscope, and on the 23rd your 7th house of love, social activities and ‘others’ becomes powerful. You are in a social period now. Personal gifts and abilities are less important than social grace – your ability to get on with others. Your social skills will carry the day, not your personal abilities or initiative. Let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Your way is probably not the best way now. Your good will come through others.
Mars enters your 4th house on the 5th and stays there for the rest of the month. This is a good time for undertaking major renovations in the home. (Some of you might be thinking of building a home.) A sibling or sibling figure prospers. He or she seems focused on finances. A parent or parent figure seems impatient and argumentative. Passions run high at home.
Health needs more attention from the 5th onwards, and so it is good that you have a strong focus on health this month. This is a good sign. You can enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. As always, make sure to get enough rest.
On the 23rd as the Sun, your love planet, enters your 7th house, you begin a yearly love and social peak. This should be marvellous for those of you who are single as the Sun is powerful in his own sign and house. The social grace and magnetism are much stronger than usual. Singles have choices this month: there are opportunities for serious, committed love and for ‘fun and games’ love – love affairs.
Finances are good this month – but keep in mind that your financial planet, Neptune, is now in retrograde motion (and will be for many more months). So, though your financial intuition is very sharp, it does need verification these days. The 16th and 17th are especially good financial days – both you and the current love prosper. On the 30th and 31st the beloved prospers, and this is also a good love and social period.

Mars began to travel with Uranus on July 31, and they remain travelling together on the 1st and the 2nd. This brings a closeness between you and a sibling or sibling figure in your life. Your communication skills are especially strong during this period. However, you should be more mindful on the physical plane, and especially when driving. Avoid arguments and confrontations.
We have a Grand Trine in the Earth signs this month. Your communication skills and mastery of ideas might not be appreciated just now. People seem more focused on practical things.
Health still needs watching until the 23rd. There is nothing serious afoot; this is short-term stress caused by short-term planets. In the meantime, make sure to get enough rest. Perhaps you can schedule more massages or natural treatments where possible. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. By the 23rd you will see a dramatic improvement.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 23rd. Don’t let hyper-pessimism detract from your appeal. Happiness and an uplifting manner will draw love to you. One can be serious, but also maintain joy and optimism.
Planetary retrograde activity increases this month. There will never be less than 40 per cent of the planets in retrograde motion and, after the 24th, 50 per cent of the planets are retrograde. So the pace of life is slower. There is much indecision both in you and others. It’s OK. It’s natural. It’s the astrological weather.
Finances are more challenging than last month. Neptune, your financial planet, is still retrograde, and he receives stressful aspects after the 23rd. Earnings will come, but there will be more work involved (and delays and glitches).
Mars moves into your 5th house on the 20th and will stay there for the rest of the year ahead. Children and children figures seem more combative now. They lose their temper too easily. They can be involved in fights.

Retrograde activity reaches its zenith this month. From the 10th onwards, 60 per cent of the planets are retrograde. Life seems to stand still. Nothing seems to be happening (at least, not outwardly). There is much personal and worldly indecision. We are on a precipice and we wait. What we read in the newspaper or see on TV is probably not accurate and should be taken with many grains of salt. Our job is to enjoy this time and make it work to our benefit. For, make no mistake, big things are happening beneath the surface – we just don’t know exactly what. Sometimes we need to go backwards in order to go forward.
Your love planet, the Sun, never goes retrograde. So love at least is moving forward. It seems happy this month. The Sun is making nice aspects to Uranus, the ruler of your Horoscope, so there is romantic opportunity for singles. The problem in love is you. You’re not sure what you want. You’re indecisive.
Love is erotic until the 23rd. Sexual magnetism seems the primary allurement at the moment, and romantic opportunities happen in strange places and ways – at funerals or funeral parlours, or as you attend a wake or comfort a bereaved person. On the 23rd this will change, as your love planet enters Libra. Love becomes more romantic and not just sexual. There is a need for philosophical compatibility – a similar world view. Romantic opportunities are likely at college or college functions, at your place of worship or at religious functions. People at your place of worship can play Cupid. There is an allurement to foreigners and romantic opportunities can also happen in foreign lands.
The spouse, partner or current love is having a banner financial month, but after the 10th he or she needs to do more homework, more due diligence, before making important financial decisions.
Health is much improved over last month and will get even better after the 23rd.
Though your financial planet, Neptune, is still retrograde, finances should improve after the 23rd. Before the 23rd there is more work involved – more challenge.

Retrograde activity among the planets decreases dramatically this month, and by the end of October only 30 per cent of the planets will still be retrograde (compared to 60 per cent last month). Things are starting to move forward again. Part of it is due to the solar eclipse of the 25th which will blast away obstructions to progress.
In addition, three planets are having their solstices this month. They pause in the heavens and then change direction (in their latitudinal motion). This too is playing a role in unblocking things. A change in direction is happening in various departments of life.
The day side of your Horoscope, though far from dominant, is as strong as it will ever be this year. Home and family – and emotional wellness – are still your major interests, but you can shift some attention to the career. This is not a very strong career year, but you are in your peak for the year from the 23rd.
The solar eclipse of the 25th has a strong effect on you, so take it nice and easy over this period. Also, your health in general needs more watching after the 23rd as well. Make sure to get enough rest and enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
The solar eclipse of the 25th occurs in your 10th house of career, signalling career changes. Generally, people don’t change their actual career paths (although sometimes they do) but instead the way they pursue their existing path. Often upheavals in their company or industry cause this. Sometimes government regulations change the rules by which your company or industry operates. Sometimes there are dramas in the lives of bosses and elders that cause change. There are dramas in the lives of parents or parent figures.
Every solar eclipse impacts your love life and this one is no different. A current relationship gets tested. This doesn’t necessarily mean a break-up. You go through these eclipses a minimum of twice a year – so this is not strange. But it shows that it is time to deal with dirty laundry and repressed grievances. Good relationships survive these things, but flawed ones can be in trouble. Sometimes the testing happens because of personal dramas in the life of the spouse, partner or current love. The relationship itself is not the problem.

You’ve had better career years in your life and will have better ones in the future, but this month is the pinnacle of the current year. You’re in the midst of a yearly career peak until the 22nd.
The main headline this month is the total lunar eclipse of the 8th, which has a very strong effect on you personally and on the world at large. Take it nice and easy during that period.
This eclipse occurs in your 4th house of home and family but also impacts three other planets – Uranus, Mercury and Venus. So there are dramas at home and in the lives of family members. There are shake-ups in the family. Repairs might be needed in the home. There are personal dramas in the lives of family members and of parents or parent figures. You also seem personally affected too. You need to redefine yourself and your self-concept, to update and refine it. Otherwise, others will define you in not so pleasant ways. This redefinition will lead to wardrobe changes and changes in the image and presentation in the coming months. The dream life is apt to be overactive and not pleasant at this time, but pay it no attention – it is just psychic debris stirred by the eclipse. It has no other significance.
Since Mercury is affected by the eclipse, children and children figures are affected. They should take it easy and reduce their schedules at this time too. The impact on Mercury can show psychological confrontations with death or near-death kinds of experiences. Your spiritual practice (which will be strong later in the month) will help you deal with this. Bosses, parents and parent figures have their marriages or serious relationships tested. Siblings and sibling figures are forced to make important financial changes.
The eclipsed planet, the Moon, is your health planet. So, there can be health scares. If this happens, wait a couple of weeks and get a second opinion. Scans and tests done during an eclipse period, when the planetary energies are all roiled up, might not be accurate. Have them rechecked. There will be important changes in your health regime in the coming months. Job changes are also likely. If you employ others there is instability in the workforce and staff turnover is likely.
You’re still in a yearly career peak, but the eclipse brings distractions to your focus.
Health needs watching until the 22nd, but you should see a dramatic improvement afterwards. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

Last month’s monster eclipse must have changed certain trends in the world. Suddenly it seems in vogue to think and act ‘outside the box’ – to go outside the normal boundaries. Three planets are ‘out of bounds’ this month (which is highly unusual). Mars has been ‘out of bounds’ since October 24 and remains so all this month. Mercury is ‘out of bounds’ from the 1st to the 22nd and Venus from the 2nd to the 24th.
Usually when a planet is ‘out of bounds’ it means there are no answers to be found within the normal boundaries and so one must look elsewhere – explore the unknown. This is what is happening with a parent or parent figure, in your religious and philosophical life, with children and children figures in your life, with the finances of a parent or parent figure, with siblings, sibling figures and in your intellectual tastes. But as we mentioned, it seems trendy in the world at large.
Health is much improved over last month and events in the world are moving forward as well. The pace of life quickens. Once again, the planetary power is mostly in the East and the time for ‘people pleasing’ is over with. (They should always be treated respectfully.) You go your own way now. You run your own race. If there are changes to be made that enhance your personal happiness, by all means make them. Let the world adapt to you rather than vice versa.
The month ahead is happy. The power is in your 11th house of friends until the 22nd and this is your favourite house. The planetary power pushes you to do what you love to do – to be involved with friends and groups, to study science, astronomy, astrology and technology, to be involved with networking and online activities.
On the 22nd, as the Sun enters your spiritual 12th house, your spiritual practice becomes important. (You will feel this even before the 22nd.) Your 12th house is almost as strong as it was when the year began. So, you can expect a hyper-charged dream life and one that is significant and meaningful. Your ESP and spiritual faculties are also supercharged. Your challenge will be to keep both feet on the ground.
Finances are good this month. There is prosperity happening.
