This month begins with Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, in retrograde motion followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 9 degrees of Virgo squaring that nasty ol’ Mars/Saturn/Antares conjunction of last week. Enough already with the crisis points!!! Venus will be in her own sign of Libra, offering her graciousness and will be joined by Jupiter in Libra on the 10th. A double blessing for all of us! There will be surprising perks along the way this month.
Mars gets moving all the way through Sagittarius and into its exaltation sign of Capricorn on the 29th. You will be processing the consequences of your actions since March over through the rest of this month to find the deeper meaning. It’s all good with that journey. Saturn continues on in Sag between the 10 and 11 degrees while Uranus is retrograde from 24-23 degrees of Aries. Neptune is also retrograde in Pisces from 10 to 9 degrees and Pluto standing powerful at 15 degrees of Capricorn to its station at 14 degrees 55’ on the 27th. When Mars gets to the conjunction with Pluto next month between the 16th and 21st there will be some tension and possibly real fireworks. Love is still greater than Fear!

July 23-Aug 22
The Sun is involved in the New Moon Solar eclipse on the 1st so you might want to lay low that day as ancient astrology texts say that when the Sun’s rays are interrupted by an eclipse, one is weakened by the change in frequency. Your sign is ruled by the Sun so this makes eclipses extra potent for you. The 2 eclipses this month are happening in your 2nd and 8th houses which have to do with money, assets, investments and legacies. It would be a good time to evaluate your financial goals and make changes in October if you need to. Good days for you are the 25th and 26th.
Aug 23-Sept 22
With your ruling planet, Mercury, retrograde in your sign until the 21st, you have something that needs to be revised or redone.

The eclipses happen in your 1st and 7th houses which have to do with yourself and your partner and maintaining a balance there. Stay out of Virgo perfectionist mode, allow for the flow to take you where you need to go. Good days for this are the 1st, 2nd, 27, 28th and 29th.
Sept 23-Oct 23

This is a game changer for you and things start to improve in all ways for you through mid-October 2017. Think back to what was going on from 10/2004-10/2005 for a clue to what areas can increase in your life. The eclipses light up your 12th and 6th houses so you must be ever diligent about your health and not ignore any weird symptoms.

Oct 24-Nov 22

Dec 22-Jan 20
Saturn, your ruling planet, is now direct and separating from troublesome Mars this month so you can start to feel less frustrated with your progress and gain some momentum. Saturn likes to take things slow so be patient as it unfolds. Pluto goes direct at just under 15 degrees of Capricorn on the 26th. You gain power. The eclipses happen in your 9th and 3rd houses so travel is accented as well as possibly more education or some kind of shift in your belief system. You are ready to integrate your inner and outer worlds during the next year and get into better alignment. Positive days for you are the 10th and 11th.
Jan 21-Feb 20
With Saturn, your ruling planet, now direct at 10 degrees of Sagittarius and separating from Mars, you will have less trouble with your friends and business associates as tempers reside and you start to get into strategic planning again. There’s still a bit of a wrinkle as some people may leave your sphere of influence forever. This is just how life is when two malefic planets occupy the 11th house for a protracted period of time. The eclipses happen in your solar 8th and 2nd houses so pay attention to your income and investments as they are subject to change over the next 6 months. Best days to make progress with your plans are the 12th and 13th
Feb 21-Mar 20
Jupiter is about to enter the sign of Libra on the 9th and that should improve things for you professionally and in your personal partnerships.

Saturn is still in your 10th house adding some responsibility and seriousness to your work environment but Mars is moving away from Saturn so the tension and frustration you’ve had over the last month will wane. Best days to enjoy life are the 15th and 16th.
