With Neptune in your solar tenth house of career and public life, spirituality could play a big part in it. On one hand that can be good. On the other hand, try to stay grounded and realistic in your decisions. With Pluto in your solar eighth house until 2024, you have been experiencing changes in finances and health issues and even near-death experiences. This does not necessarily mean an actual death, but it can be the end of a life cycle or regeneration of some kind.
The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th is in Aquarius, your solar ninth house. This eclipse can affect travel, your studies, publishing and cultures. On August 21st the Solar Eclipse is in Leo, your solar third house which will affect the way you communicate and relationships with you siblings and neighbors. On January 31, 2018, the Lunar Eclipse is in Leo, which, again, will affect your thought processes and your communication skills. The Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15th pushes you to broaden your philosophy and ideas during the next 12 months. Happy Birthday, Gemini!
Jupiter is very active right now. She has been retrograde since February 6th and is turning direct on the 9th of June. This is a great time for people to come together with sharing ideas and philosophies. It is also a great time for opportunity and to share with those who have less than we do. It is the time to negotiate and respect other people’s viewpoints. Jupiter is squaring Pluto all month. Pluto in Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and represents concrete and the establishments. Jupiter, in Libra, is about ideas and finding ways to make things happen. Until October 10th, when Jupiter moves in Scorpio, governments and businesses are going to be scrutinized very carefully and will be making changes.
Jupiter and Neptune are in a quincunx, which is a very difficult transit and can cause friction. Both planets represent spirituality, but this transit shows that spirituality is off kilter. Neptune can have a smoke screen of confusion, and Jupiter can be very idealistic and over-zealous. We need to look within for The Truth and not give up our own power.
Neptune turns retrograde on the 16th and will remain so through the 22nd. When Neptune is retrograde we are much more intuitive that normal. You can have insights and ideas coming from a higher source, so take time to write them down and start acting on them. If you do not write them, you could later forget them. When Neptune turns direct these inspirations can disappear. Those with addictive personalities need to control their impulses as retrograde Neptune can intensify their desires.
The Saturn/Uranus trine continues to give us the encouragement and energy to work towards our goals and hidden desires. Keep the goal in mind and work with tunnel vision to achieve what you want. On a universal level the positive aspect can bring more of a balance between opposing forces of change versus status quo.
Venus is in Taurus, one of its natural rulers, from the 7th through the month. This transit emphasizes beauty and nature and the arts. It is also a positive influence for business and money.
The Summer Solstice is June 21st; the longest day of the year. The Sun is conjunct Mercury at 0 degrees Cancer which is the World Point that creates a more flowing communication than usual. It is a great time to plan or announce an event. It is also a wonderful to write a book, song or poetry. The creative juices can flow! Be careful not to betray a confidence, however.
The New Moon is in Cancer on the 23rd, just two days later. On the morning of the 23rd, write your wishes for the next 30 days having to do with Cancer traits such as empathy, caring and finding or creating the right home for you and your family. When the Moon is in Cancer, home and family and Love are high on the priority list
