Career Scopes for September 2018

With less and less retrogrades stomping on our flow, this month it’s truly time to get down to business!

For most of this month, the Sun is zooming through the zodiac sign of ♍️ Virgo, the analytical, detail-oriented, “get stuff done” sign that prefers to take a practical approach to the day-to-day tasks that need to get done to keep life moving along as efficiently as possible.

The 🌑 New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the perfect time to set an intention around how you would like to set up your weekly schedule in an ideal world, making sure to keep room in your days to have time to support yourself with all of the things you love that will also keep you grounded and sane so you’re more freed up to serve others from a filled up well.

But let’s back it up a bit! On September 6th, Saturn, the planet of discipline and responsibility finally closes out its annual retrograde pattern and begins moving direct in the sign of Capricorn. This long 4.5 month retrograde has been making things tough when it comes to figuring out how to structure your plans and gain clarity around your long-term goals. Now that it’s turning around, we can finally gain a sense of satisfaction from getting on track with where we want to go!

The month begins closing out with a 🌕 Full Moon in Aries on September 24th. Remember those seeds you planted on the astrological new year back on the New Moon in Aries on April 15th? This is the time to see them come full circle! It’s not only a time of seeing blessings blossom up to the surface to be appreciated, but also for letting go of any ideas that didn’t end up making it to harvest either because they didn’t get enough TLC or simply because it wasn’t meant to be.

How will all of these cosmic influences be affecting your life & career specifically? Find out more below…

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

Are you in control of how you spend your time? This month, the Sun is moving through your zone of Daily Work & Wellness, helping you get organized with the day-to-day tasks that make you feel balanced and on top of your world. Last month’s crazy creative energy may have had you starting more projects than you could comfortably handle, so now is the time to scale back and prioritize what’s really the most important. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be your call to set up a schedule that will allow you to put the word “flow” back in workflow!

With Saturn Retrograde coming to a halt in your Career Zone, any creative ideas you’ve been contemplating in your work can finally begin building up steam again. One of the follies of being an Aries is having more good ideas than you know what to do with, and many of them can end up fizzling out before you’ve even had a chance to take solid action. Now, with disciplined Saturn back on your side, you can drill down and make a plan for the projects that are going to allow you to take your work the farthest and make the biggest impact on the world.

Then, as we move into the end of September, a Full Moon in your sign will be rising high in the sky! This will be an amazing time for you to see all your hard work from the past 6 months finally blossom into being. At the same time, you may become more aware of the things you are doing that are no longer 100% in alignment with the true you. This Full Moon will illuminate the difference between who you are now – and who you are no longer – so you can let go of the past and back get in tune with the beat of your own unique drum.

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

It’s time to let your creative fires burn brighter! This month, the Sun is lighting up your zone of Fun & Creativity, giving you an extra burst of energy to satisfy your inner spark and create the things you wish existed in the world. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th will be an incredibly lucky time to set an intention to start a new project that makes you feel especially excited about life!

On September 6th, yet another planet will be backing off from being in retrograde as Saturn stops in the sky and resumes forward motion in your Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery sector. If you’ve been trying to expand your horizons in intriguing new ways, but have been getting hit with roadblock after roadblock along the way, this will bring a sweet breeze of relief to help you push onwards either through learning about a fascinating new subject, planning your next travel destination, or exploring an amazing new way to experience life.

Towards the end of the month, a Full Moon in Aries will be shining a light on your zone of Spirituality & Deep Reflection. This is one lunation that might be a bit uncomfortable as you are forced to take a deeper look at any limiting beliefs, fears, or worries that have been holding you back from living a more meaningful and purpose-driven life. However, the good news is that this Full Moon will allow you to release some of these shadows so you can stand more confidently in your light.

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

How are things going on the home front? For most of this month, the Sun is cruising through your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security, helping you ground down and get back in touch with your roots. September is a good month to do an overhaul of your living space, strengthen your bonds with family, and create a more solid plan to help you create a greater feeling of security for the future. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th will be an especially amazing time for getting clear on what you’d like to call into this area of your life next!

Luckily, Saturn will finally be ending its annual retrograde in your 8th house of Business & Finance as well. If things have been unclear when it comes to earning or managing your money in a way that makes more sense – and that feels truly good to you on the inside – then you’ll be glad to know that clarity is on the way and you can finally get on track with a more straightforward strategy for financial success.

As this month begins to fade out, a Full Moon in Aries will be lighting up the sky on September 24th, illuminating your Friendship & Community sector as it does. This will be a good time to take stock of your friendships with others and celebrate and appreciate the like-minded people who surround you while detaching from those that no longer jive. Perhaps this will be a time when you’ll even come to realize that you could even be doing more to connect with your community and share your gifts and talents to help others on a wider scale.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

It’s time to get out and mingle! For most of this month, the Sun is fluttering through your Social Networking sector as it brings out your inner social butterfly. Talk, speak, create, and share your ideas with others around you to gather meaningful feedback from those whose opinions you cherish. You may even consider reaching out to collaborate with someone who shares the same type of audience or target market as you do in order to double down and expand your reach together. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the ideal time to make a list of all of the people you would love to work with whether they are dream clients, customers, a teacher or mentor, potential brand ambassadors, or fellow co-creators and watch as it slowly comes true over the next 6 months.

On September 6th, Saturn will finally be stopping in the sky as it pivots out of retrograde and into direct motion in your Relationship zone. This is a big chapter of your life for re-evaluating the give and take between you and other people whether romantically or in your work. When Saturn was in retrograde, wires may have gotten crossed, but now that it’s over you can begin the process of getting on more solid ground with how you give and receive support with another in order to break free of unhealthy bonds or strengthen those that are most in need of it.

As we get into the last week of September, a Full Moon will be bringing light to your Career Zone. This is an exciting time to see the work projects you’ve been working on over the past 6 months finally come full circle! Put yourself out there and celebrate your hard-won efforts. It can be an especially lucky time for a launch or promoting yourself, however, it can also bring up any sticky spots that you would like to pay more attention to in the future, too.

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

As we move further away from Leo Season now, it’s time to jump into the thick of things! Last month was all about you re-inventing yourself, while this month the Sun is lighting up your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting, helping you make a solid plan to receive more of the things you really want. Part of this process requires you to narrow down what you don’t want, but by the New Moon in Virgo on September 9th, you’ll want to set a solid intention around what you do. Keep in mind that the first step to attracting in the blessings you wish for is believing that you’re worthy, capable, and deserving of it.

This is a major time in your life for re-evaluating your relationship with your life & work and how you manage the balance between them including having plenty of time to take care of your precious self as part of your weekly schedule. Since Saturn Retrograde is ending in your Daily Work & Wellness sector on the 6th, you’ll finally be able to gain more clarity on the best way to set this all up so you can make a productive plan to prioritize all of the things that matter most.

With a Full Moon rising up in your fellow fire sign, Aries, on the 24th, you will be manifesting blessings into your life that will help you expand your horizons as it lights up your zone of Education, Exploration, & Self-Discovery. Perhaps it’s time to plan an exciting trip or complete a course of study that will open up new possibilities for you. Whatever you decide to do, it’s about time you shake up your status quo and open yourself up to more of the magic that exists beyond the normal confines of your comfort zone.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

Ready to let the true you come into view? This month, the Sun is moving through your sign until September 23rd, shining a light on what makes you special and authentically you. If there are parts of yourself you’ve been hiding or holding back, it’s time to embrace your whole self and find a way to seamlessly integrate it into all of the things you do. It’s so much easier to be true to yourself than try to fit into a box that wasn’t made with your needs and wishes in mind. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be your call to envision how you’d like to reinvent yourself into the kind of person you really want to be.

It’s been a tough few months in the cosmos, but this month you’ll have one less planet getting in your way on your quest for success. When Saturn Retrograde ends in your zone of Fun & Creativity on the 6th, you’ll finally get the go-ahead to move forward with your current creative projects. This is an important time in your life to stop simply thinking about all of the exciting things you could be doing and actually find a way to make them real, and luckily, there will be so much more clarity to be had now that Saturn will no longer be slowing things down.

Toward the end of this month, a Full Moon in Aries will be setting your Business & Finance sector on fire – most likely in a good way. Chances are you’ve been working very hard these past 6 months to create a more solid strategy for financial success and this will be the time to see your efforts come full circle. It will be a great time for promoting yourself and taking advantage of the bountiful blessings that want to come your way. On the flip side, you may also catch a glimpse at the work you still need to do to get to the next level as this Full Moon will not just be about manifesting, but also for releasing anything that hasn’t perfectly gone your way. Do your best to brush it off and try to appreciate how far you’ve come, knowing that there is still time to fine-tune your strategy for the future.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

Not gonna lie, this may feel like a bit of a weird time for you, Libra. The Sun is moving through your Spirituality sector for most of this month, and you may feel like there is a change in the air, but not complete clarity around what that change might entail. There is a sense of needing to take some time out to yourself to think things through and reflect on the past in order to get back in touch with what kind of life you want to have in the future. Try to be kind to yourself and have patience. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the ideal time to sit down and journal out some of the things you’d like to do to add more meaning and purpose to your daily life going forward.

With Saturn Retrograde finally ending in your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security, you will have the opportunity to pick up the pace when it comes to creating a more comfortable personal life for yourself whether that means moving, renovating, or working through family or financially related strife. This is a pretty big year for getting things in check in each of these areas, and even though there may have been some confusion around what the best way will be to get on track with your long-term goals, now clarity is on the way. And with it, the sweet satisfaction that comes from finally making solid progress!

Just after the Sun slides into your sign later in the month, there will be a Full Moon in your opposite sign of Aries on the 24th. This will bring relationship issues up to the surface to be celebrated, cleared, or released – depending on what is going on for you in this area at the time. Full Moons are amazing times for both blessings and lessons and this one will be important for coming to understand where you currently stand when it comes to your closest ties with others and what needs to be done to right any wrongs or reset the balance in order to reintroduce the feeling of peace and harmony you prefer.

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

It’s time to share the special skills you’ve got in stock! For most of this month, the Sun is moving through your 11th house of Community & Friendship, calling you forth to connect with others around you and expand your reach to help more of the people who are in need of what you have to offer whether they be fellow friends, potential clients or customers, or all of the above. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the start of a whole new cycle that will allow you to call in more like-minded people to be a part of your very special inner circle.

On a similar note, with Saturn Retrograde ending in your zone of Social Networking early in the month, finding the right words to use to share your message and ideas will suddenly become much more straightforward. Although you may have been dealing with some confusion when it came to promoting yourself to others these past 4.5 months, this is an important chapter in your life for moving forward and getting the word out about what you want while surrounding yourself with co-collaborators who can help you make it so.

As this month begins fading out, a Full Moon in Aries will blaze high above your Daily Work & Wellness sector, helping you pay closer attention to where your work and life has gotten out of balance so you can start to reel it back in. You may also finally reach an important milestone that has you celebrating hard work that has finally paid off. Whatever the case may be, take this time to appreciate how far you’ve come over the past 6 months and show yourself some gratitude as well as grace when it comes to the work you still have yet to do.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Hold on tight! Your career is blasting off this month as the Sun moves through your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling until September 23rd. It’s your time to rise to the occasion by making a more meaningful impact on others through the work you are here to do in the world. Since this area also rules over your public image, you might ask yourself how you could put your skills and talents out there and make what you do far more well known. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th is your call to envision what your ideal career would look & feel like and then get ready to manifest it into being!

To add even more rocket fuel to the mix, Saturn finally ends its annual retrograde on the 6th to help you zoom full speed ahead in your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting. Since last December, you’ve been challenged to get clear on what you really want out of life and create a solid plan to make it happen. Now that Saturn is no longer making things as hazy, you can finally find the next rung on the ladder to reach up higher towards your version of sweet goal smashing success.

With a Full Moon in Aries kicking off the final week of September, a creative project may finally be coming full circle as a fire is lit in your zone of Fun & Creativity. This is a time to celebrate seeing the ideas you first planted last April bloom fully into being while also paying attention to any further arrangements you can make to help them continue to blossom and grow.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

For most of September, the Sun is sprinting through your zone of Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery, urging you on to leap in some exciting new directions. Perhaps you’re feeling especially adventurous and ready to take on a new activity, location, or area of study. This is a good time to step out of your comfort zone and open yourself up to fresh experiences and opportunities that stretch you and help you grow! The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be especially amazing for envisioning the type of adventures you’d like to show up in your future next.

Meanwhile, your ruling planet Saturn has stopped getting flipped around in retrograde and is finally moving forward again in your sign. This is a strong year for you to step up and grab life by the horns by harnessing your leadership potential and having the courage to align who you truly are on the inside with your outward actions. Now that Saturn won’t be giving you extra trouble, you can move forward and make progress on your quest to personal reinvention while removing any constrictions that have been keeping you from portraying yourself in a more authentic way.

On September 24th, the Full Moon in Aries will be lighting up your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security. If you’ve been working hard to create a more comfortable life for yourself at home, then this is going to be the time to see it all come full circle. You could manifest wonderful blessings into your life that make you feel more secure, while also coming to see what more needs to be done to make your situation truly ideal.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

Time to put your mind where your money is! For most of this month, the Sun is moving through your 8th house of Business & Finance, giving you a chance to take a closer look at how you could be earning or managing your money more smartly. Whether it’s coming up with a better strategy for structuring your offerings so you can boost up your bottom line or creating a new budget to help you better manage where your money goes, the New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the perfect time to set an intention on how you’d like to create the sense of financial security you crave.

One of the biggest reliefs this month will be when our strict teacher planet Saturn stops backspinning and starts moving forward again in your Spirituality sector. Ever since Saturn first moved into this area last December, this has been a seriously important time for you to release the past including old emotions and thought patterns that have only been keeping you stuck. Now that the gears are grooving again, you can begin to gain some satisfaction from all of those hours of deep reflection you’ve been putting in and get more deeply in touch with a greater sense of faith and purpose in something bigger than yourself.

Before this month grinds to a halt, a Full Moon in Aries will be bursting on the scene to ramp up activity in your zone of Social Networking. A friendly collaboration could finally come full circle or you could have the chance to connect with someone who can help you take your ideas to the next level. At the same time, you may realize which connections are no longer leading you where you actually want to go, so this will be both a time to appreciate and re-assess.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

Love is in the air! This month, the Sun is moving through your opposite sign of Virgo until September 23rd, and as it does, it will be lighting up your 7th house of Relationships. Whether you are on the hunt for a new romantic or business partner, a healer, or simply someone to provide you with support in an area of your life where it is most welcome, the New Moon in Virgo is the best time to make your wish list of the type of qualities you would like this person to have so you can begin to let the Universe know you’re ready to reel ’em in! And if you’re already taken? Consider this your cue to strengthen the bonds you already have and reset any imbalances that are throwing things askew.

With Saturn finally ending it’s super long retrograde in your Friendship & Community sector, you can finally start to wrap your head around the best way to be of service to the people around you. This has been a pretty big focus for you ever since Saturn entered this part of your chart back in December, and there may have been a lot of experimenting and backtracking happening here. Luckily, you can finally start to get a better handle on the way you can provide your skills and talents to do your part to improve the lives of others and, in turn, the world.

As the last week of September kicks off, a Full Moon in Aries will be rising up in your 2nd house of Values, Desires, and Goal Setting. Not only is this an awesome time to manifest more of the things you want, whether it’s love, money, or another measure of self-worth, but you can also take this opportunity to get clearer on which of your previous wishes can now be checked off the list – either because you’ve changed your mind or because you can now rightfully celebrate the fact that they’ve finally been artfully accomplished.

What if I don’t know my exact birth time?

Do you REALLY need to know your exact birth time to get an astrology reading? This is a question I am often asked… 🌟

Most people do seem to know what time they were born, however, there is definitely a decent amount who don’t. Unfortunately, these days birth certificates don’t seem to list the time anymore, so we have to rely on our mothers to keep track, and if they don’t remember – or if you were adopted and it was not properly recorded – then it can make things pretty confusing when it comes to finding the correct astrology chart!

As a Career Astrologer, I absolutely do rely on having the exact time to provide crystal clear insights about your higher calling, and without it, unfortunately, I won’t be able to help you find your ideal career. However, if you don’t know what time you were born and you’ve been wanting to get a reading or birth chart report, you aren’t out of luck!

Basically, professional astrologers like me can take stock of who you are and how you behave (and even how you look!) and then work backward to determine the chart that will properly reflect your personality so that you can get the most accurate reading or report possible. This process of uncovering the mystery of what time you were born is called “rectification“.

 

Here’s what you can do if you don’t know your exact birth time:

  1. Narrow down the time range. The first step is to find out what time of day you were born, so you can narrow it down to a smaller range. Perhaps someone remembers that you were born in the morning, afternoon, or evening. If you’re not able to ask anyone, however, there is a cool trick. Do you consider yourself to be more career-oriented or relationship-oriented? Career-oriented people are typically born in the morning until noon, while relationship-oriented people tend to be born between noon and midnight!
  2. Order a 1-Question Reading. You can order a 1-Question Reading and let me know as much information as possible about when you think you were born… the date, the time of day, the city, etc. I will then present you with information on how your personality would change based on the time of day and give you questions to ask yourself to help you narrow it down. It may take more than one question to get to the bottom of things, but this is the best way possible to determine the correct birth time so that when you order a reading or report, it will be as accurate as possible.

 


.

Here’s an example of how this works… 💫

 

Are you already pretty knowledgeable about astrology and curious about how to do rectification for yourself? For the sake of practicing astrologers who want to know more about exactly how this works, let me explain the thought process behind how this is done.

Let’s say someone’s birthday is October 23, 1980 and they have no idea what time of day they were born. Perhaps they were adopted from another country, their mom simply doesn’t remember, or she is not available to ask because maybe she has unfortunately passed on or disappeared from their life somehow.

 

Here are the steps I would follow to narrow in on their birth time:

The first thing I would do is type in their birthday as October 23, 1980 at 12:00 PM in the city and time zone they were born in (hopefully, they will at least know that!). This will help me determine the moon sign. By scanning through the hours, I’m able to gather that this person’s moon sign would be in Leo if they were born between 12:00 am and 9:14 pm, and their moon sign would be Virgo if they were born from 9:15 pm onwards.

These moon signs are very different! So, I would then ask questions that would help me determine which moon sign is accurate based on how these two moon signs normally behave.

For example… Virgo Moons tend to like to have everything planned out well in advance. They usually prefer to work behind the scenes, work with their hands, and let their work speak for itself. Details matter to them greatly and they may have a sense of perfectionism or prefer things to be a certain way. They identify more strongly with the element of Earth, pragmatism, and logic. On the other hand, Leo Moons crave appreciation from others. They express themselves more boldly. They don’t mind putting themselves out there to be seen, and they resonate with the element of Fire, passion, and bravery. There is a lot more we could say about both of these moon signs, but this is just a quick example of how different they can be!

By asking these types of questions, we can find out that this person actually does resonate more with being a Virgo Moon and, on top of that, they claim they are more relationship-oriented rather than career-oriented therefore confirming an evening birthday. So, now we know they were born between 9:15 pm and midnight on October 23, 1980.

From there, we figure out what all of the different Rising Signs would be from 9:15 pm through midnight simply by typing in different times to find the cut-offs.

  • 9:15 – 9:20 pm: Gemini Rising
  • 9:21 – 11:45 pm: Cancer Rising
  • 11:46 -11:59 pm: Leo Rising

(The program AstroGold is a really good one to use for this process because it allows you to easily move minute-by-minute or hour-by-hour through the chart.)

Now that we know they are either Gemini, Cancer, or Leo Rising, we can now ask questions about the differences between these 3 signs when it comes to the one that resonates with them more deeply when they think about their role or what they are good at doing or even how they look or dress since the Rising Sign signifies their appearance and the self they show to the world as well as the work they are physically meant to do for a living.

Once you have narrowed that down, you can also take a look at how the houses change with these three different rising signs and which planets end up in different houses – including their Sun & Moon Signs – and ask questions about those.

As you can see, the process of rectification does take a deep knowledge of astrology as well as some patience and a good dose of curiosity, but I always find this challenge to be quite fun even if it is a bit tedious! At the end of the day, it has been incredibly rewarding for me to help people find their birth time who would have otherwise never been able to get an accurate reading, and I am able to do this all thanks to the art & science of rectification – and, of course, a pretty good pre-understanding of astrology.

  • The importance of identifying your limiting beliefs for what they are and seeking to prove them wrong in order to step into your greater potential
  • The importance of holding yourself accountable for reaching your goals
  • How being a leader is really just about leading people through the things you have already been through and experienced and about sharing what has worked for you (and you don’t need to be the #1 expert at it!)

Career Scopes for August 2018

Photo & beautiful jewelry by Zenned Out

 

It’s a month of continuing to retrace our steps to uncover any gems of wisdom we may have missed in the shuffle of charging ahead towards our goals since the start of the year.

With the Sun in ♌️ Leo for most of this month, there is an underlying desire to become more of who we truly are at our core essence that is sending us all on a journey to discover how we can step into our fuller potential and embrace more of the possibilities that will allow us to live our brightest, boldest, and best lives and to shine on an even greater level in our careers. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th will be the final eclipse of the year, signaling a resolution being made after all of these retrogrades have sent us on an adventure to reclaim who we are and become clearer on how we truly want to express our creative will out into the world.

This has not been an easy process and August continues to make things a bit confusing for us as Uranus Retrograde begins on August 7th, making it more difficult to make big sweeping changes for the next several months, and Mercury & Mars Retrograde continue into the end of this month until the 18th and 27th, respectively, forcing us to go back to the drawing board and revisit our future plans to make sure they are as strong and built to fit our best interests as possible.

Finally, we begin to close out this month with a 🌕 Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, a moment when any last emotions we have been stuffing down inside can rise up to the surface to be seen and cleared so we can work towards our newly shined dreams with a greater belief in our ability to attract what we most want to envision happening for ourselves and manifest it into being.

How will all of these cosmic influences be affecting your life & career specifically? Find out more below…

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

This month is all about returning to your creative projects and your creative process. You have probably had tons of ideas for things you’ve been wanting to create this year, but with the Sun in Leo until the 22nd and Mercury Retrograde happening in your Fun & Creativity Zone, you’ve needed to sort through all of these to determine which ideas are really going to be the most worth your while and capable of sustaining the creative spark that will keep your inner muse fed and inspired in the long run. The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 11th is your call to declare to the Universe what you really want to create and put your love into next with a renewed sense of clarity and a determination to go even bigger & bolder than ever before.

Meanwhile, the rare Mars Retrograde continues to move backward through your Community Outreach sector which is forcing you to pause and get clear on who the people are that you really want to help, who you’re most able to help, and why. It may not be the best time for a new marketing campaign but instead for tapping back into your existing network to ask those already quite lovely people what they need so you can look for opportunities to reconnect and make the most of the circle you’ve already pulled together rather than focusing on adding a new round of followers, clients, or customers to the mix.

Finally, the end of this month brings a big purge for you as the Full Moon in Pisces lights up your house of Spiritual Pursuits and triggers a deep emotional renewal process. This is an important time to pay attention to the thoughts, fears, and limiting beliefs that hold you back from doing the big, important work you’re really here to do in the world – and that will actually be the most emotionally fulfilling in the end even if it’s challenging for you to step it up and get the ball rolling. Don’t be afraid to take some time out to get vulnerable with yourself and identify your true concerns so you can open your mind to find solutions to move past them.

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

August brings you an opportunity to dive more deeply into your home roots and pay more attention to your personal life as well as what you can do to strengthen your family bonds and make daily life more comfortable. With the Sun in Leo and Mercury in retrograde in this same sign, there is also a sense of needing to revisit your long-term plans for the future. Do you know where you want to be in a year from now? How about three, five, or ten? With your Home, Family & Long-term Security all lit up on the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th, it will be the ideal time to get clear on the foundations you want to create for your future. Don’t be afraid to aim high because this lunation will be especially powerful for manifesting!

Meanwhile, Mars is in retrograde and slowing things down in your Career Zone for most of the month, and to top it off, Uranus will now be moving backward through your sign where it may have already started to get you inspired to do things in a new and unique way, but now the ability to follow through on those plans may begin to fade away until Uranus goes direct and re-enters your sign again next March. Once it does, it will be there for the next 7 years, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to shake up the status quo when it comes to how you take control of your life and how you portray yourself to others through your work when it returns (whether you are truly ready for it or not…).

As August begins to fade out, a Full Moon in Pisces will be illuminating your Community Outreach sector. This is a wonderful time to throw a party and bring together your greatest friends or supporters or even to launch a new offering that will allow you to help those you are here to serve on a greater level than ever before. However, if you’ve been shrinking away from connecting with your community or embracing a more like-minded friend circle for a while, this Full Moon will bring to the surface any fears or worries that have been making you want to hide away instead of sharing the special skills and expertise that could have the power to make a real difference in others’ lives. If you can claim responsibility for what has been holding you back, this can be a soothing moon for helping you get back out into the world to make your mark!

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

As the Sun makes its way through your Social Networking sector for most of this month and clashes with Mercury Retrograde moving in the opposite direction in this same area, this is a good month to reinvent your message and reflect on how you’ve been sharing yourself and your work on social media. Whether that means sprucing up your newsletter, your social media posting strategy, or getting clearer on what you want to say or share in order to reach your goals, the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will be ideal for setting your new and improved mission into motion with a refreshed & recharged message that feels even more authentic for where you want to take your work next.

Meanwhile, Mars continues its rare retrograde through your zone of Education, Exploration, and Self-Discovery until late in the month, making it difficult to progress and expand into new uncharted territory in your life & career. However, this is a good time for going back over things you have already learned and discovered in order to deepen into your existing knowledge or go back to places you’ve already visited for another look.

Before this month comes to an end, a Full Moon in Pisces will be soaring high above your Career Zone, allowing you to bring the latest chapter of your career efforts to a culmination point and welcome in the manifestation of work goals first set 6 months back. However, the spotlight can be so bright it can also reveal some blemishes in your plans which can help you see how things may be in need of a change so you can go on to make an even bigger and more meaningful impact in the future.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

This month is all about figuring out what you really want and why. As the Sun moves through Leo highlighting your zone of Values, Desires & Goal Setting, Mercury Retrograde will also be moving through this area making things especially confusing. This can totally throw you off track if you allow yourself to get too caught up with all of the worries in your mind, so if you’ve somehow lost sight of what you’re really working for, the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo will be a powerful time to at least decide how you want to feel. At this time, aim to make a big wish because the intentions you set on this New Moon can trigger an avalanche of abundance to come your way in the next 6 months or less!

At the same time, there is another slowdown happening on the other side of the zodiac wheel in your zone of Business & Finance as Mars continues its retrograde through this area until the end of the month. Money matters may not seem to be moving as quickly as you may have hoped, so there could be a need to revisit your budget and find ways to clean up the weak spots in your existing financial management strategies. This may all seem frustrating in the moment, but in the end, both Mercury & Mars Retrograde’s effects will leave you with a much stronger set of goals and a solid plan to get you there.

Toward the end of the month, a Full Moon will be rising in Pisces and your Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery sector. Perhaps you will manifest a new adventure or the chance to learn more about something you find deeply fascinating. This Full Moon may also bring out your wanderlust and a sense of wanting to escape from your everyday life. Being that Pisces is also a water sign, just be careful that you aren’t trying to run away from your emotions. You’ve got to feel to heal, and by releasing any pent-up feelings by facing them head on, you’ll leave yourself feeling lighter and more able to invite in more of the magic that is waiting for you to discover on this Full Moon.

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

Woo, it’s Leo Season! As the Sun moves through your sign, joined by the topsy-turvy behavior of Mercury Retrograde, you may be feeling a fresh surge of energy to go out into the world and reinvent yourself in a whole new way. However, it can be hard to settle on what the best way will actually be to express yourself among the sea of options, so it’s likely this month will be spent doing a lot of experimentation with different ideas until you settle on the person you are not and embrace who you really are. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in your sign on the 11th will be an amazing time for you to plant a seed for the future you that you’d like to allow to come through over the next 6 months or less.

On the other side of the zodiac wheel, Mars continues moving backward in the sky through your Relationship zone, helping you find ways to reignite the passion in your personal partnerships or even find better ways to support others around you through your work. The old ways of doing things may not seem to be working quite as well during this time, as Mars calls on you to go back and deal with issues you may have thought you were already past, but are now needing another look.

As we reach the end of the month, the Full Moon in Pisces will be bringing a spotlight to your Business & Finance sector. This will not only be a wonderful time to reach a culmination point from all of the work you’ve been doing to boost your bottom line over the past 6 months but also to notice where your money making and management strategy is still needing a bit of work. By the end of this month, you should have a renewed sense of how awesome you really are and what you need to do to attract more of the blessings you truly deserve.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

This may feel like an especially weird month for you where you may feel like you are being caught in a bit of a limbo between who you used to be and who you are now becoming. The Sun and Mercury Retrograde are bringing a buzz to your zone of Spirituality & Mystical Pursuits, making this an amazing time for self-reflection, facing fears, remembering old memories, and reuniting with your hopes & dreams for the future, but this might all feel a bit fuzzy and honestly quite destabilizing to have so many deep thoughts floating around in your mind at once. The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the 11th will be your call to set an intention to find a way to take what you’ve been ruminating over and use it to step towards a more meaningful direction that is in greater alignment with your soul instead of simply going through the motions without a mission.

At the same time, Mars is in retrograde in your zone of Daily Work & Wellness, so those daily step-by-step tasks you are normally so good at getting done may be getting lost in the shuffle. If you’ve been procrastinating, please understand it’s okay and a lot of people are feeling this way, not just you, Virgo. However, you are more likely to beat up on yourself about the lack of progress and the slower pace. As a sign who typically likes to have a solid plan, the Universe is now teaching you to give up a bit of control and see where things naturally flow.

Toward the end of the month, a Full Moon will fly high above your opposite sign, Pisces, and your zone of Relationships & 1-on-1 work. If you are in a relationship, this will be a good time to celebrate the what is good between you and your partner, while also paying attention to where there may be a lack of give-and-take that needs to be remedied. If you’re flying solo, you may think about how you would like to call in some support whether that is in the form of a healer or some type of assistant, or maybe you are ready to reimagine the ways you offer your support to others.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

This month is all about your community, Libra! The Sun and Mercury Retrograde are both moving through your Community & Friendship sector for most of this month – one, of course, going straight ahead and the other asking you to backtrack and make sure you’re not missing any opportunities to dive deeper with the clients or customers who are already on board and craving what you have to give. Although this is not a great time for a big new campaign to expand your reach, the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will be a wonderful time to envision the ways you can revolutionize the work you are already doing to help make the world a better place for those around you which, incidentally, may actually end up attracting more people to you naturally.

If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been bitten by the procrastination bug, you’re not alone. Mars Retrograde is continuing to stuff things up and slow things down in your Fun & Creativity zone until late August which may make you feel like your current creative projects are only moving along at a snail’s pace. Still, every retrograde period has its upside, and for you, this may mean that you end up discovering a whole new way of working that gets you even more fired up instead of settling for anything less.

By the end of the month, a Full Moon in Pisces will rise up in your Daily Work & Wellness sector, showing you where you may be in need of more organized habits or routines to keep your work, life, and body in a more lovely feeling balance. Any systems that are no longer working for you will become especially clear so you can be sure to cover your bases and give yourself the practical support you truly need to do your best work in the future.

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

This is one of the best times of the year for you to focus on rising through the ranks in your career as the Sun makes its way through your zone of Career & Higher Calling, also joined by the infamous Mercury Retrograde. While things may not be chugging along exactly the way you may have first imagined due to such crazy astrological energy happening as of late, you really must keep in mind that any detours in your plans may ultimately be in your best interests. There’s a way that you can make an even bigger and more meaningful difference in the world through your work, and the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th is the ideal time to wish for the best possible outcome while bravely believing in your heart that you can make it happen and that it can be done.

On the other side of the zodiac wheel, Mars is also in retrograde in your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security for most of this month. If there are things you’ve been wanting to do around your home, with your family, or a plan you’ve been hoping to make progress on to make your personal life more comfortable and secure, it may feel like it’s going rather slow. When Mars is in retrograde, it’s training us to tune into our intuition rather than our intellect. A lot of this month is about trusting that, if you go with the flow, it will end up leading you right where you need to go without needing to be 100% in control.

A creative project may be coming full circle by the end of the month as a Full Moon in fellow water sign Pisces rises up in your Fun & Creativity sector on the 26th. Celebrate! This brings the culmination of all of the hard work you’ve been putting in to bring your original ideas out into the world and make them real. You may come to notice where you still have work to do, too, but don’t let that deter you from patting yourself on the back for all you have been able to achieve since the New Moon in Pisces last March.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Feeling your craving for wanderlust acting up more than usual? For most of this month, the Sun is zooming through your zone of Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery, making the everyday grind seem a whole lot less inspiring than planning for your next big adventure. However, all is not as it seems. With Mercury Retrograde crossing wires in this same area, it’s not a good idea to jump all in on new travel plans or even going back to school or buying an expensive course until you’ve had a few more weeks to fully think it through. Details may not be your forte, and during this time, it’s even harder to identify what will end up being the smartest option in the long run. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later! The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will be a great time to make a bucket list of all of the things you still want to learn, see and experience, and then you can start planning the best way to make it happen at a smarter, slower and steadier pace.

Meanwhile, action planet Mars is also finishing up its rare retrograde until the 27th in your Social Networking sector. While this can add to your procrastination levels, you might also feel like networking opportunities are not moving along as quickly or smoothly as initially intended. Although this may be hard for your restless sign, Mars Retrograde only comes around once every 2 years, and there is a benefit of going with the flow and keeping yourself busy with your other passions at least while you wait for Mars to pick up speed again even if it is hard to see why in the moment.

At the end of the month, there will be a Full Moon in Pisces in your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security. If you’ve been trying to manifest a new home, dealing with family or financial security issues, or trying to figure out where you’d like to see yourself end up in the future in regards to your personal life, this lunation can bring a lot more clarity to the situation to help you make a solid plan that finally feels good.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

How are those numbers adding up there, Capricorn? This month is all about money – namely how you’re earning it, managing it, and strategizing to make more of it. As the Sun and Mercury Retrograde both move in opposing directions through your Business & Finance sector, it’s a good month to triple check that you truly understand how much is coming in and going out as well as reflect on ways you can finetune your budget, and ideally, figure out how to bring in more money with less stress, time, and hard work (because just because you can doesn’t mean you should!). The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will bring the perfect moment to set your sights on a new money milestone to aim for and to envision what it would look or feel like to manifest it into being.

At the same time, Mars is also in retrograde in your zone of Values, Desires & Goal Setting which can present you with a lack of motivation to get going towards the things you really want – even if you really do want them! Still, this is a good time to check back in with yourself to make sure that you are truly aiming for the right things in the right way. Is it a certain amount of money you want to make or would you rather have more time off to pursue your personal projects outside of work? Take your time to weigh the pro’s and con’s so that when this retrograde period ends on the 27th, you’ll be ready to get going full speed ahead to make the right goal happen.

As this month comes to a close, there will be a Full Moon in Pisces illuminating your Social Networking sector. With Mercury Retrograde finally over and Mars Retrograde about to come to a close, it will be great time to launch a new social media campaign or to reach out to some new collaborators to help you take both your careers to new heights by co-creating some magic together. You may also want to check back on the effectiveness of previous promotions to determine how you could do better in the future.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

This may be an especially wacky month for your relationships with others, dear Aquarius. While the Sun is running through your Relationship zone, illuminating how you relate to those around you whether in life or work, so is Mercury Retrograde. Where do you find yourself in need of support in your life & career and how can you step up and ask for it? Perhaps you are also re-thinking how you would like to give your time & energy to help others and are asking yourself who the right people really are to surround yourself with in order to brighten up your days instead of bringing you down. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will be the ideal time to make a wish for the type of relationship(s) you want to bring into your life next… whether it’s a certain type of client, the perfect lover, or even a healer you would like to have on standby for those moments when you need a specialist to turn to for a mind, body, or spirit boost.

On the 7th, your ruling planet Uranus will begin to stop in the sky and move into its annual retrograde pattern in your Home, Family & Long-term Security sector. If there have been changes you’ve been wanting to make around your household or even in your plans for the future, you may find these to be a little more difficult to achieve which could result in a feeling of restlessness for a while. On top of that, action planet Mars continues moving through its even more rare retrograde in your sign for a lot of this month! It may feel like you’re swimming upstream on the quest to reach your goals, and although you are a sign that usually likes to keep things shaken up, these retrogrades will be forcing you to slow down and really think any radical changes you’ve been thinking of making through all the way through.

On the bright side… and yes, there is a definite bright side to the crazy energy happening this month… there’s a Full Moon coming up in Pisces on the 27th and it will be lighting up your zone of Values, Desires & Goal Setting! It will be one of the most wonderful times of the year for you to earn more money and manifest the things you’ve been wanting, so try to make the most of it by planning a big launch and making it as easy as possible for people to hand over their cold hard cash.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

With all of the wacky and potentially quite anxiety-producing energy streaming through the cosmos this month, it’s a good time to get fully grounded as much as possible in the here and now. As the Sun moves through your Daily Work & Wellness sector, the way you flow through your days and tick off all of the practical tasks on your to-do list is in the spotlight. With Mercury Retrograde clashing with this quest, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself by streamlining your workflow and prioritizing your self-care routine above all else. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on the 11th will be your call to visualize what the idea of “optimal balance” truly means for you!

Meanwhile, you may be questioning a lot of things this month as Mars Retrograde continues moving in reverse through your zone of Spirituality & Deep Reflection. As a Pisces, you tend to operate best when you have a greater purpose you are working towards, so without a clear picture of your north star, you might feel a bit more untethered than usual. However, when Mars is in retrograde, it’s a better time for meditating rather than moving full speed ahead. Try not to make any major life-changing plans until the clouds clear when Mars goes direct on the 27th.

The grand finale for you this month will be the Full Moon falling in your sign. While this can bring the culmination of everything you have been doing to step up as the leader of your own life and operate as your most authentic self over the past 6 months, it can also bring any remaining self-doubt or self-esteem issues to the forefront too. This is both a time of celebrating of what makes you special and a time of releasing anything that keeps you from putting yourself out there more. Don’t be tempted to hide your unique talents away – show others how much you shine!
