Have you felt that an invisible wall or block has been holding you up? Thanks to the end of Saturn retrograde, that feeling/that reality will now give way. The rest of the month is built for knocking it down and moving on.
Jupiter/Neptune reaches the final of three peaks on Saturday. In effect all year, this searchlight transit has been keeping both the potential and the uncertainty going strong. For the most part, it has produced a sense of shooting in the dark. It hasn’t been overly generous on the informing end, only revealing on a need-to-know basis. (I think we all agree that the small-drib-and-drab process has not been anywhere near sufficient!)
As Jupiter disengages from Neptune, the racehorse (the better option, the clearer path) will start to outdistance the rest. Before that happens, there’s more to sort out. Mercury—the trade, transport, and communication planet—dukes it out with Saturn on Sunday and regroups with Pluto next Thursday. Venus, the “What’s it worth?” planet, follows suit with Saturn on Wednesday and Pluto on the last day of the month. Initially, we’ll experience a push-come-to-shove squeeze, but overall, these transits set up a productive development track.
The autumn equinox happens with the sun’s advance into Libra at 00:51 a.m. on Monday. Relationships (social, political, personal) and financial matters hit a fuller swing. The struggle and/or controversy does too, thanks to the sun at odds with Chiron through Thursday. A no-pain, no-gain archetype, Chiron in Aries is a signature for difficult breakups, separations, launches, firsts, and fresh starts. Victories will be hard-won, but the fight for truth, betterment, justice, and deserved reward is always worthwhile.
March 20 - April 20
Better productivity, solution-finding, and healing are on the roster. Saturn, now done with retrograde, and Mars in full swing with Jupiter assist you to net better progress. Friday/Saturday, ease off; go with the flow. Can’t see your way clear? Give it more time. Sunday through next Thursday keeps you working through it. There may be a compromise or price to pay. There’s value in the act.
April 20 - May 21
Saturn and Mars assist you to get better committed and figured out, especially Thursday. If you lose momentum or backtrack over the weekend, it will be only temporary. Sometimes you need to falter or to see the flip side in order to appreciate what it really takes to stay committed to the betterment plan. Sunday onward, face it; keep it real.
May 21 - June 21
Friday/Saturday could shift your perspective or plans. The end of Jupiter/Neptune can help you to uncover something you didn’t know you had going for you, whether that is a talent, an asset, an avenue, or a resource. Libra month, starting Monday, can boost your popularity, social life, love life, and ability to forge better inroads.
June 21 - July 22
The end of the week is for moving on or exploring something new, next, or alternate. The autumn equinox is accompanied by several dynamic transits between Saturday and next Thursday. The week ahead can be a time to face the music or put the nose to the grindstone. Effort is required; stay the course!
July 22 - August 23
On the job or at the gym, you’ll get the maximum benefit out of your workout Thursday. Friday/Saturday, stay flexible; take it as it comes. Jupiter/Neptune continues to stir significant potential. Planetary aspects from Sunday through the end of the month keep you tackling one thing after another. It’s a process. It will amount to something worthwhile.
August 23 - September 23
The end of the week is mobilizing. As of Thursday, you should feel that you can finally get something good or something better going. Even so, it may not come easily or naturally. You’ll need to build up to it first. Mercury/Saturn (Sunday) and Venus/Saturn (Wednesday) push you to do just that. By next Thursday/Friday, you should be better ready to rock and roll.
September 23 - October 23
Saturn is just out of retrograde and Jupiter/Neptune is subsiding too. Still, before your birthday month hits clear sailing, Mercury and Venus in Libra face more checkpoints. Now through the end of the month, there’s one thing after another to get through. There’s value in the act. Take it one step at a time. First there’s pressure, then there’s progress.
October 23 - November 22
Hit it early Thursday while Mars/Pluto makes the getting good. The first half of Friday provides a window of opportunity. There’s no necessity to force it. Watch for the action to take on a life of its own. Sunday onward, you’ll find yourself more in the thick of it. More is required of you. The clock is ticking!
November 22 - December 21
Reaching peak on Saturday, Jupiter/Neptune can clue you in to more than you realized was on brew. This transit continues to stir up creativity and deep emotions. It will also put increased opportunity in your path. Sunday onward, Mercury, Venus, and the sun (freshly into Libra as of Monday) set reality into play in some tangible or more visible way.
December 21 - January 20
You can feel the end of Saturn retrograde as a foot-off-the-brake influence. The first half of Thursday is the best of the week for setting wheels in motion. Sunday through Thursday, Saturn and the rest of the stars put you to work. Even so, the week ahead will prove to be a productive one.
January 20 - February 18
The sun in Libra (starting Monday) generally makes for a smooth ride of relating, connecting, and creating. Before you get the goods of this transit, Mercury, Venus, and the sun have a few things to sort out. Some are small stones, some major, and some are on the karmic roster. Sunday onward, the stars keep you working for it.
February 18 - March 20
Feeling a big shift, as if you have turned an invisible corner? You are feeling the effect of Jupiter/Neptune hitting peak on Saturday. Even so, there’s further to go and more to sort out, especially so as of Sunday. The stars hold a mix of pressure, push/pull, and opportunity through the end of the month.
