You begin your year with most of the planets in the independent, Eastern sector of the Horoscope. The planetary power flows towards you rather than towards others. It is time to take care of number one. Time to focus on the things that make you happy (so long as they are not destructive to others). Time to use your enhanced personal power to create conditions that please you. Other people are very important this year – especially in regard to your career – and they should be treated with respect. But your personal happiness is up to you and they have nothing to say about it.

The upper half of the Horoscope is dominant as the year begins. Thus you are in a strong career period. Focus on the career. Home and family issues need time to resolve themselves – Mercury, your family planet, is retrograde from the 5th to the 25th. So you may as well focus on your outer goals.

Career is successful this month but complicated. You’re meeting people socially who open career doors for you, but Saturn in your 10th house shows that you’re earning your success by sheer merit. Social contacts open doors, but ultimately you have to deliver the goods – and you seem to be doing that. You might be trying too hard, though. Your work ethic is noticed by your superiors on the 13th and 14th and a happy job opportunity can come too. Your career planet Jupiter goes into retrograde motion on the 9th. This suggests a methodical step-by-step career growth – slow and steady. For the next few months while Jupiter continues to travel backwards, you need to get some clear ideas on your career direction. Sometimes we have to go backwards in order to go forward.

Prosperity seems good this month too. On the 4th Mars enters Scorpio and makes beautiful aspects to Neptune, the ruler of your Horoscope. You are in tune with money and with the money people in your life. The money people are supportive. Money is earned in comfortable ways. Mars in Scorpio suggests a need to get rid of inessential possessions – to get rid of waste or redundancy in the financial life.

The love life is happy but also complicated. Jupiter has been in your 7th house for many months now and he is bringing love and new friendships into your life. But many personal compromises are necessary. Romance can work if you’re able to bridge your differences. There are romantic opportunities with people of high status and position. They like having their own way.

The planetary momentum is overwhelmingly forward this month. Ninety per cent of the planets are moving forward. Thus, with the exception of your career, there is fast progress towards your goals.

Prosperity is still strong this month and basically happy. Mars, your financial planet, is still in Scorpio and still making nice aspects to Neptune. Review our discussion of this from last month. Foreigners, foreign companies and foreign investments seem important this month. Prosperity will be even greater after the 19th, when the Sun enters your sign and starts to make nice aspects to Mars. Happy job opportunities are coming to you from the 19th onwards.

Health was good last month and is good in the month ahead. Until the 19th (and this was the case last month) you respond beautifully to spiritual-type therapies. Health is enhanced through ankle and calf massage. After the 19th enhance the health through foot massage. Spiritual therapies are powerful after the 19th as well. When the Sun enters your sign there will be more of a focus on health. You discover that good health has cosmetic advantages – better than any cream or lotion. Your state of health determines your physical appearance.

Career is still successful, but you’re working harder – overcoming more obstacles – this month, especially after the 19th. Like last month there is slow, steady, methodical progress. The tortoise, not the hare, wins the race in the end.

Love is still a balancing act this month. Your interest and the interest of the spouse, partner or current love seem diametrically opposed. You want your way; the beloved wants his or her way. Compromise will be essential. There are happy romantic opportunities from the 5th to the 7th and from the 9th to the 11th.

Computers and high tech gadgetry seem temperamental, unstable, from the 1st to the 5th. Some of it might need replacing. There can be dramas in the lives of friends during that period too. Be more patient with them.

Your 12th house of spirituality has been powerful since January 20. You’re in a very spiritual period until the 19th and even afterwards. Your challenge will be to keep both feet on the ground and not drift off into nirvana.

A bittersweet kind of month. On the one hand, there are many planets in your sign and you’re in the midst of a personal pleasure peak. On the other hand we have two eclipses that shake things up – both personally and in the world at large. It is a happy but eventful kind of month.

The solar eclipse of the 9th (in America it happens on the 8th) occurs in your own sign, thus it affects you strongly. It shows a need to redefine yourself – your personality, your image and your self-concept. Generally this happens because others are slandering or misrepresenting you. If you don’t define yourself, they will. Thus over the next six months you’ll adopt a new look – a new image. The career is affected by this eclipse too as Jupiter, your career planet, is impacted by it. Thus there are career changes and shake-ups in your company or industry. The rules of the game change. There are likely to be dramas in the lives of bosses, parents and parent figures.

This eclipse also impacts on Saturn, bringing dramas in the lives of friends, the testing of friendships and the testing of computers and high tech equipment. (Such equipment is likely to be erratic and temperamental over this period, and even before the eclipse actually happens.) It would be a good idea to have your important files backed up. Every solar eclipse brings job changes and changes in the health regime, because the Sun is your health and work planet. Sometimes the job changes are within your present company, but sometimes it is with a new one. Often there are health scares with a solar eclipse and these will probably cause the changes in your health regime. However, overall health is good this month (but take it easy during the eclipse period).

The lunar eclipse of the 23rd is more benign for you, but it won’t hurt to take it easy during that period too. This eclipse occurs in your 8th house, indicating that the spouse, partner or current love is making dramatic financial changes. Events happen that show that the current strategy and thinking is not realistic. The 8th house is the house of death. This doesn’t mean literal death (at least most of the time it doesn’t) but encounters with death – close calls. Sometimes someone close to you dies or has a near-death kind of experience. Sometimes people have dreams of death. This is all educational rather than punitive. There is a need for better understanding of this issue. When death is understood, life is better understood. Every lunar eclipse affects children and children figures in your life. Best to keep them out of harm’s way during this period. They are likely to be more temperamental, so be more patient with them. They are redefining themselves too.

You entered a yearly financial peak on March 20 and it is still going on until the 19th of this month. Prosperity is happening. The financial intuition, always good, is even better during this period. There are job opportunities happening too. If you’re already employed, there are opportunities for extra work or overtime. The family seems supportive of this until the 6th. On the 5th Venus enters your money house. This suggests earnings from trading, buying and selling – from sales, marketing and PR. Mars, your financial planet, spends the month in your 10th house of career. This shows that money is high on your priorities and that you’re focused here. This transit also tends to prosperity and shows that you have the financial favour of bosses, parents and parent figures – they seem supportive. Pay rises are happening – either monetary ones or ‘in kind’. Your good professional reputation boosts earnings. On the 17th Mars starts to make one of his rare retrograde moves (they only happen every two years), so earnings come with more delays and glitches attached – but they do still come. From the 17th onwards, your job is to gain mental clarity on your financial situation. Your plans or thinking might not be realistic. Avoid major purchases or important financial decisions after the 17th.

Last month the planetary power shifted to the bottom half of your Horoscope. Night is falling in your year. It is time to be involved in the activities of night. Time to be more focused on the home, family and your emotional well-being. You won’t be able to ignore the career – your 10th house is very strong all month – but you can shift some energy to the family.

Health is good all month. If you want to enhance it further you can give more attention to the head, face and scalp until the 19th. Face and scalp massages are wonderful if you feel under the weather. After the 19th pay more attention to the neck and throat. These areas should be massaged regularly.

Love is happy this month, but complicated. Mercury, your love planet, goes retrograde on the 28th. Love is close to home, in the neighbourhood. There are still romantic opportunities with influential kinds of people – especially on the 15th and 16th. There are also opportunities in educational-type settings at schools, lectures, bookstores, libraries – these kinds of places. But the main issue, as it has been all year, is to bridge the differences with the beloved – you have diametrically opposite perspectives.

Retrograde activity is very strong this month. From the 18th onwards 40 per cent of the planets are retrograde, and after the 28th half the planets are. Patience, patience, patience. When delays happen you will understand why and they will be easier to handle.

With half the planets still in retrograde motion until the 9th, the keyword is patience. Nor is there any need to make matters worse by being sloppy in what we do. The cosmos wants perfection in all the little details of life (especially in finance, career, love and family life). Doing things perfectly will lessen the risk of delays. It might be slower initially, but will save time in the long run.

Happily retrograde activity will lessen as the month progresses. Jupiter, your career planet, moves forward on the 9th and Mercury moves forward on the 22nd. We end the month with 30 per cent of the planets retrograde – a reasonable percentage.

The planetary power approaches its nadir (lowest point) in your chart this month (and this will be the case next month too). Your 4th house of home and family is strong from the 20th onwards, but your 10th house of career is also strong. You are in the situation of having to balance a successful career with a successful home and family life. There are no rules to this. Sometimes you shift one way, sometimes another. Finding your point of emotional harmony is not that easy when career duties call. But you can do it. Symbolically speaking your situation is equivalent to someone who keeps getting awakened in the middle of a sound sleep by some emergency at the office. The natural benefits of a good night’s sleep are not happening.

Health is more stressed from the 20th onwards. You have many planets in stressful alignment with you this month – at least 60 per cent of them and sometimes more. So pay more attention to health. You seem involved in some major project – something very big – and these are always complicated and stressful. Maximize energy by concentrating on the essentials and letting go of trivial things. Try to schedule massages during lunch breaks or after work. Enhance the health with neck and throat massages until the 20th and with arm and shoulder massages afterwards. Breathing exercises are helpful after the 20th too.

Your financial planet is still retrograde this month. Earnings will happen but with more delays and glitches. Mars also has his solstice from the 7th to the 14th. He will pause in the heavens – he will occupy the same degree and minute of latitude – and then change direction. This is happening in your financial life too. There is a pause and then a change of direction. This will all be good. This is all natural.

The love life seems happy this month. Mercury, the love planet, makes nice aspects with Neptune and Jupiter. There is harmony with the beloved. When Mercury goes forward on the 20th, the love life will get better. The 22nd to the 25th seems especially happy.

Mars retrograded out of your 10th house on May 27. The demands of career are still there but are less urgent than last month. You can afford to spend more time with the family and handle affairs in the home.

The tension between home and career will have some therapeutic value this month. It will force up old memories and old patterns that need cleansing. Issues involving the parents will also come up – old traumas. You will have opportunities to resolve these things.

Health still needs watching as many planets are still in stressful alignment with you. This can make you vulnerable to all kinds of germs and bugs. With normal energy levels they wouldn’t stand a chance, but now it is easier for them to get in. So rest more. Make sure you get enough sleep. If you feel tired during the day, take a short nap. Enhance the health by giving more attention to the arms and shoulders until the 21st and to the stomach afterwards. (Women should give more attention to the breasts too after the 21st.) Right eating is important after the 21st. Moods and emotions need to be kept positive and constructive. Health will improve after the 21st, but still needs some attention. The Sun will re-activate eclipse points twice this month. These are like ‘mini-eclipses’. They will force some changes in the health regime and indicate some instability at the job. These ‘mini-eclipses’ happen on the 8th and 9th and again on the 23rd and 24th.

Love is happy until the 13th but becomes challenging after that date. Love is still found close to home – in the neighbourhood and perhaps with neighbours – until the 13th. Good communications and mental compatibility are important in love. You gravitate to people who are easy to talk to. Like last month, social and romantic opportunities are to be found in educational settings – at school or school functions, lectures, the library or bookshop. This will be true after the 13th as well, but after the 13th the family seems more involved. Family members play cupid. You like good communication but now you also like emotional intimacy. You gravitate to those who know how to give emotional support. There is a nostalgic feeling in love during this time. It is as if you’re trying to recapture happy romantic experiences from the past. While this is understandable, this tendency can make you lose the joy of the ‘now’. Now is always the best time for love. The past is over with.

Mars is still retrograde this month. Continue to gain clarity on your financial situation. See where improvements can be made, and when Mars goes forward again next month, you’ll be able to put your plans into action.

Last month on the 13th the Western, social sector of your chart became more powerful than the Eastern sector. Thus the planetary power is moving away from you and becoming ever more distant. It flows towards others – and so should you. Personal independence is lessened now. It is not absent but it is not as strong as it has been since the beginning of the year. There is more of a need to attain goals through consensus and cooperation rather than through unilateral direct action. The Eastern sector of your chart is still strong, so we get the feeling of someone who is working to balance self-interest with the interests of others. Someone who wants popularity but also some independence. It is still possible to create conditions to your liking, but it is now more difficult than it has been.

On June 21, the Summer Solstice, you entered a yearly personal pleasure peak. This is a time to enjoy your life, to indulge in leisure activities, to do the things that you most love to do. It is a period of great personal creativity as well. Party time. This goes on until the 22nd.

There has been a rare Grand Trine in Water – your own element – since June 18. This continues until the 22nd. This is an era of good feeling. People are more sensitive to the feeling level of life. People are kinder and more compassionate. You are very comfortable in this situation and it is very positive for health. Health is much improved this month. You can enhance it further through right diet, emotional harmony and paying more attention to the stomach – until the 22nd. Joy itself is a healing force. If you feel under the weather a night out on the town might be just the ticket. Do something that’s fun. After the 22nd give more attention to the heart (this is always important for you, Pisces, and even more so now). A creative hobby is therapeutic these days.

The month ahead is prosperous, especially until the 22nd. Earnings come easily. Financial goals are attained with little fuss. Foreigners, foreign companies and investments in foreign lands seem important. Mars is now moving forward and you have sound financial judgement and good direction. The financial planet in your 9th house shows increased earnings.

Love is happy but with a few bumps on the road. The love planet, Mercury, re-activates an old eclipse point on the 1st and 2nd. He also squares Pluto on the 7th and Uranus on the 10th and 11th. These events indicate some shake-ups and dramas in love, but it will probably just add more spice to the love life. Love is about fun and games until the 14th. Afterwards it becomes more serious and service oriented. Love in the second half of the month is about serving the beloved’s interests.

Love is still happy this month. The love and social life has been important all year and becomes even more important in the month ahead. On the 22nd you enter a yearly love and social peak, and in many cases this will be a lifetime peak (much depends on your age). Your 7th house is filled with beneficent planets from the 22nd onwards. It’s as if there is a cosmic conspiracy to get you to the church. Wedding bells or an engagement wouldn’t be a surprise. But it need not happen in this exact way. There can be relationships that are ‘like’ marriages instead.

Many planets in your 7th house from the 22nd onwards shows that you get along with many different kinds of people. Your social sphere is broad and inclusive. There are intellectuals, influential people, healers, health professionals and artistic types. The 20th to the 24th and the 26th to the 28th seem especially good.

Your challenge in love – as it has been all year – is to balance your interests with the interests of the beloved; to be able to love and cooperate in spite of opposite perspectives.

Career looks successful and active this month. On the 2nd Mars crosses your Mid-heaven and enters your 10th house, indicating activity – aggressiveness – in the career. You’re active in a physical kind of way. On the 22nd, the planetary power shifts to the upper half of your chart – again fostering the career and outer objectives. Jupiter, your career planet, receives much stimulation this month – positive stimulation – especially from the 20th to the 24th and the 26th to the 28th. These are successful career periods. You are working hard for all this good, to be sure – but the opportunities are happening.

Health, however, is a major concern from the 22nd onwards. Yes, the month ahead is active and there are many obligations. But it is better to take voluntary rests than to be forced into rest because of a health problem. You can handle the social and career whirl if you pace yourself and let go of the trivial things in your life. A good night’s sleep will cure many a problem. Enhance the health though more attention to the heart until the 22nd. After the 22nd pay more attention to the diet and the small intestine. Discords in love or with friends should be avoided as they affect your physical health. Should a problem occur (God forbid), restore harmony as quickly as possible.

A hectic kind of month, Pisces. Health still needs attention until the 22nd, so keep in mind our discussion of this last month. Health is further stressed by two eclipses this month, which both have a strong effect on you, so take it nice and easy this September. Schedule more massages and rest periods into your days. Enhance the health through right diet and by paying more attention to the small intestine until the 22nd and to the hips and kidneys afterwards. Hip massage will be very beneficial if you feel under the weather. A herbal kidney cleanse might be just the ticket too.

The solar eclipse of the 1st occurs in your own sign and you’re personally very affected by it. There can be a detox of the body if you haven’t been careful in dietary matters. There is a need to redefine yourself now (basically a healthy thing), a need to gain clarity on your personality and image that you project to others. These will all change in the coming months. Things that didn’t get changed in March will get changed now. This solar eclipse impacts on Mars and Saturn. Thus there are financial dramas and a need to make important financial changes. Events will show that your thinking and approach haven’t been realistic. The impact on Saturn brings dramas in the lives of friends and will test friendships. There are probably shake-ups in professional organizations you belong to. High tech equipment will get tested and often will need replacement. Keep your anti-hacking software up to date and back up your important files.

The lunar eclipse of the 16th, which occurs in your 7th house of love, also has a great impact on you. You’ve made many new friends in the past year and in the past few months. Now they get tested. Your current relationship will also get tested. Often such an eclipse shows long-buried grievances coming up for cleansing, but sometimes it shows a drama in the life of the beloved. Good relationships survive, flawed ones are in danger. Every lunar eclipse impacts on children or the children figures in your life and this one is no different. They should take it easy during this period. Big changes are happening in their lives now. Some could move, some could have babies, some are redefining themselves – changing the self-image and self-concept. This will go on for the next six months. Every lunar eclipse impacts on your creative life. Pisceans are creative people. So, your creativity will now take a new turn. Important changes are happening here.

Your financial planet will have one of his solstices from the 19th to the 28th. Mars will pause in the heavens during that period and then, after the 28th, will change direction (in latitude). This happens in your financial life too. There is a pause in your financial pursuits and then a change of direction – a good change.

Last month, on the 10th, Jupiter, your career planet, changed signs. He moved out of Virgo and into Libra, your 8th house of transformation. This brings changes in your career direction. The social dimension, which has been strong all year, is still important. Your ability to get on with others is still just as important as your actual skills. But now other skills seem important – the ability to cut costs, cut waste, cut the needless and effete, becomes important. Superiors will be impressed by this. This transit also shows a few ‘near death’ career experiences in the year ahead. You’re getting on better with bosses and superiors, though they still seem demanding.

Health is much improved this month. Jupiter, Mars and other short-term planets have moved away from their stressful aspect to you. If you got through last month with your health and sanity intact, give yourself a pat on the back. You did very well. Detox regimes are very effective this month if you feel under the weather – a kidney detox especially. After the 23rd pay more attention to the colon, bladder and sexual organs.

Short-term social goals seem to have been more or less achieved. Now it is time to provide more practical help for the beloved – helping him or her achieve financial goals. The spouse, partner or current love is in a yearly financial peak this month. There is prosperity for him or her well into next year.

Your personal finances are basically good but you’re going way out of your natural sphere to attain your goals. Mars is ‘out of bounds’ all month. There is a boost in earnings from the 18th to the 20th and a disturbance in them, which requires you to make some changes, from the 27th to the 29th.

Neptune, the ruler of your Horoscope, is camped out on an eclipse point all month. Your health is OK, but there is no need for any daredevil type stunts. Avoid confrontations and arguments whenever possible.

On the 23rd your 9th house of religion, philosophy and foreign travel becomes powerful. This is a time for religious or philosophical breakthroughs. Travel opportunities are happening. College students seem successful.

On the 18th Venus crosses your Mid-heaven and enters your 10th house of career. This is another good financial signal for the spouse, partner or current love. He or she seems willing to invest in your career. Career is fostered by social means and through good communication skills.

Neptune is still camping on an eclipse point in November (opposite the solar eclipse of September 1), as was the case last month too. The ruler of your Horoscope is a very slow-moving planet and this is why. Stay out of harm’s way as much as possible. Drive more carefully and avoid confrontations. This is good advice all month, but especially after the 22nd when health and energy become more delicate. As always the important thing is to get enough rest. You’re very ambitious this month – perhaps even a workaholic – but when the gas tank is empty, don’t try to drive the car. You can enhance health by attending to the colon, bladder and sexual organs until the 22nd (safe sex and sexual moderation are important). After the 22nd give more attention to the liver and thighs. Thigh massage will be helpful and if you feel under the weather a herbal liver cleanse might be just what the doctor ordered. Try to stay focused on the really important things and let go of trivialities. This will maximize energy.

Career is the main headline this month. You’re in one of your strongest career periods of the year from the 22nd onwards. You’re succeeding too – but you’re earning every bit of it. Saturn in the 10th house (he has been there all year) shows success by sheer merit. The Sun shows a good work ethic. You just work harder than your competitors. Mercury, your love planet, enters the 10th house on the 12th. This indicates that social connections are playing a role too. Likeability is a big factor in your success, and this has been the case all year. Venus in your 10th house (until the 12th) shows the importance of good communication and marketing. Even the family is supporting the career. There’s no tension between family obligations and your career – they’re in synch. The family as a whole is raised in status this month (from the 12th onwards). Your career path is difficult, but there is great satisfaction this month.

The love life seems happy too. Until the 12th there is harmony in your current relationships. Singles will meet harmonious kinds of people – perhaps foreigners, perhaps people at university or your place of worship. Sexual magnetism seems very important, but no less important is philosophical compatibility. Good sex won’t cover up philosophical differences for too long (although it may do so for a little while). Philosophical compatibility is important after the 12th too, but now you also want someone of influence and position, someone who can further your career, someone you can look up to. But after the 12th Mercury makes stressful aspects to Neptune. You and the beloved will have to work harder to keep things going. You seem in conflict.

Your love planet Mercury has been ‘out of bounds’ since November 19 and is this way until the 17th. This suggests that your love interests are carrying you far outside your normal sphere. You’re taking risks here and going outside your comfort zone. Perhaps it is the spouse, partner or current love who is pulling you out here. Or perhaps it is your search for love. You also seem involved with people who are far above you in status, and sometimes this can be uncomfortable. It just means more work and effort is needed in your relationship. The good news is that you’re willing to put in the work and this tends to success (love is high on your agenda until the 3rd).

Career is still going strong. You’re very serious about it and are putting in the effort required. Advancement and success are happening now, and no one can argue about it. You have earned it.

Finances are good this month. Your financial planet Mars is in your spiritual 12th house until the 20th. This shows that you are exploring the spiritual realms of wealth, the spiritual rather than the natural causes of wealth. It shows a fabulous financial intuition. It shows more generosity and charitable giving as well. Being involved in charities is not only good for its own sake but will help your bottom line. Financial guidance will come in dreams, from psychics, astrologers, spiritual channels and ministers. On the 20th Mars crosses your Ascendant and enters your 1st house, bringing you financial windfalls. You spend on yourself. You don the image of wealth. Others see you as prosperous and this opens all kinds of doors. Financial opportunity seeks you out and there’s not much you need to do – it will find you. The money people in your life are favourably disposed to you. The 31st is an especially good financial day. Your intuition is very sharp.

Health and energy are much improved after the 21st. There is only one long-term planet in stressful aspect to you – Saturn. The short-term planets are either in harmonious aspect or are leaving you alone. Mars in your own sign also increases your energy level. You get things done fast. You have a more dynamic kind of personality. You excel in sports and exercise regimes. However, the downside is rush, impatience and temper, and these can lead to arguments or accidents. When Mars is in your 1st house you can come over as being aggressive even when you don’t mean to. It just comes out that way. Soften the speech.

Last month the planetary power began to shift from the West to the East: Mars is in your sign from the 20th onwards. You’re back in independence mode. Personal power is growing day by day. It is time to make the changes that need to be made. Time to take responsibility for your own happiness. Others have nothing to do with it right now. It’s up to you.
