If things have felt "stop and go" thanks to last month’s eclipses and all the retrograde planetary action we’ve been getting; this month brings us some much-needed momentum. Not only is Mercury moving forward again, but aggressive Mars also turns direct; which should help us with getting plans, projects, and initiatives off the ground. Meanwhile, we’re still in eclipse season with one more eclipse to go; the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018. Under this eclipse, we should expect dramatic new beginnings, fresh starts, and life-changing opportunities that span themes that cover confidence, creativity, romance, and authenticity. With the shifts and changes that are still afoot, it’s a good thing that Mars will be moving back into grounded and responsible Capricorn by mid-month. With Mars in one of their favorite places to be, the energy in the air shouldn’t feel as jarring as it has been over the past few weeks, especially with Mars turning direct by August 27. Couple Mars grounding vibes with the earthy energy of Virgo season (August 23) and we should be able to find the motivation, energy, and the clarity to move into the next phase of our lives. Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Pisces on August 26 will stop by to help us with turning a dream into something real.
Even though Mars, the planet of action is still retrograde, that doesn’t mean that it won’t be an action-packed month. That’s because we’ve got two influential eclipses happening in July, plus Mercury retrograde. The first eclipse lands on July 12, which promises to be an emotional Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Solar Eclipses, which are super-powered New Moons, often mark profound new beginnings in our lives. As a tender and intuitive water sign, eclipses in Cancer often trigger major shifts and opportunities with themes associated with women and children, families, home and our sense of emotional security.
I know some folks may be looking for the horoscopes I do for this website each month but between the past two eclipses landing in my zones of health and work and rest and retreat, it seems the universe has had some other plans for me, which included a sinus infection that I am only recently getting over.
Additionally, I am currently catching up on my one on one clients that have had to be rescheduled as a result of my illness while working on the manuscript for my book, which has a mid-March deadline. If anything, the eclipses that lit up my chart a couple weeks ago have shown me the value of being deliberate about the responsibilities I take on. This means my monthly horoscopes are on hiatus for now.
However, you will still continue to get my daily, weekend, and monthly scopes at Bustle. Thank you all for being such loyal and longtime readers.
Aries: The first half of this month is all about broadening your mind, questioning what you know, then questioning what you know again. That’s because Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, will enter Sagittarius; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity on December 1st – sparking your thirst for truth, knowledge, and adventure.

Overall, what is your truth, Aries? The stars this month will be helping you to find it. By the 9th, Mars – your ruling planet – moves into the deep waters of Scorpio; your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth.

In other words, if you don’t feel it 100% - don’t even bother.
On the 18th, the New Moon in Sagittarius gives you the fire in your belly to pursue some of your biggest dreams. However, with this moon coming in close to Saturn in Sagittarius, you’re going to have to put in the dedication and commitment to see those dreams through. No leaving what you start unfinished. Speaking of Saturn, the planet of responsibility and hard work finally leaves Sagittarius on December 19th and moves home to Capricorn for a two-and-a-half-year stay in your zone of career and achievement.

You could improve your sense of stability, deepen the bond you have with a lover, or attract a soulful and supportive relationship.

An old issue could come up for discussion between you and your partner or an ex-lover could pop back into the picture.

Another reason is Mercury’s retrograde in Sagittarius (December 3rd), which will ask that you go back and revisit creative projects or endeavors that you may have let fall by the wayside. At the same time, with Saturn in the mix, Venus and Mercury retro will be asking you to drop anything that you’re not 100% passionate about as you can’t afford to put your energy into anything half-heartedly, that goes for love affairs too.

Capricorn: With nearly half the cosmos traveling through Capricorn by the month’s end; there’s a lot of ground for you to cover in December, even if we are starting the month out with a Mercury retrograde. As a matter of fact, with the ton of planets still camped out in Sagittarius – your zone of rest, healing and retreat; your job for the first few weeks will be working on releasing the emotional junk you’ve accumulated over the last year (and perhaps a bit longer than that, since heavy Saturn has been in this zone for the last two and a half years). Consider December your time for replenishing your spirit, cleansing the toxic energy in your life, and releasing your attachment to the past.

One reason for this is because Venus, the planet of relationships, moved into Sagittarius; your zone of friendship and future plans on December 1st, followed by Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3rd. With Venus’ help, your goal is to socialize and connect with people that not only share your interests and your vision but may also have the influence or clout to open doors for you and connect you with new opportunities. Now that Mercury is spinning backwards here, this may mean reconnecting with people from your past or rethinking some of your friendships, especially if they haven’t really led to positive growth in your life. This may have been a bit of a theme for you around the December 3rd Full Moon in Gemini, which landed in your zone of self-expression.

On the 25th, Venus moves into Capricorn, inviting you to ramp up your self-care and pleasure. Beauty heals.
Pisces: Your goals and career continue to be a focus for you as this month opens, thanks to Venus moving into Sagittarius, your zone of fame and achievement on December 1st, followed by Mercury going retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3rd. Under this cosmic combination, your job will be to make sure you feel a sense of fulfillment with what you do. At the same time, Mercury will have you working to make sure that how you see yourself and how you want others to see you are one in the same. This may mean being more authentic with how you present yourself to world around you. With Venus in the mix, people will find it hard not to love you, so it only makes sense to give them the best version of you (not the perfect version).

Meanwhile, on the 19th, Saturn moves into Capricorn – your zone of friendship and future plans; focusing your energy on setting healthier boundaries, maximizing your friendships, fulfilling your hopes and wishes, and capitalizing on the professional reputation you’ve built. When the Sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st, followed by Venus on the 25th, it’s time to bring out the social butterfly in you. Networking and connecting with others could be a source of fun and opportunity. Since this zone of your chart is also connected to philanthropy and giving back, getting involved with a worthwhile cause or event could be rewarding.
Aries: The planets never stop and nor do you, but this month the major focus will be on how you move and who you’re making moves with. Even though we’re entering the month with Mercury retrograde don’t expect September to start off slow, especially as a bevy of planets begin entering Virgo; your zone of health, work, and routine. With the Sun already in this zone, pulling your focus towards getting your sh*t together, Mars is follows along; moving into Virgo on September 5th. With your patron saint in the sign associated with details and dedication, you get the most accomplished this month by paying closer attention to the small day to day things in your life that you may normally want to avoid, like sticking to a schedule. In terms of health, Mars will be motivating you to take better care of yours. You may decide to start a new fitness program or a food detox plan. A note: between Mars entering Virgo and Mercury moving forward again in Leo (your zone of fun and creativity) beginning September 5th, you may be tempted to take on everything at once. However, doing so will easily lead to a burn out. Make sure you use the powers of Virgo to decide what warrants your time and energy and what doesn’t. This will be especially true when the Full Moon in Pisces lands in your zone of rest, healing, and retreat on September 6th.
Under the influence of this Pisces moon, you may find yourself pushed towards a place of surrender, which means giving up the need to control things you have no control over and spending too much time on things that rob you of your sense of fulfillment. In other words, let go. While this moon may have you in your feelings, take it as a cue to address your deeper needs. By the 9th, when Mercury moves back home to Virgo, the pace picks up again; packing your schedule with all sorts of errands and appointments. The key to staying on track will be to finish what you start and keeping things sweet and simple. When Venus arrives to the Virgo party on September 19th, this could be a good time for job hunting. Venus will be beaming her good fortune your way, especially alongside the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th. Tap the power of the new moon to help you with implementing new projects, improving your health, and better aligning with your purpose. When the Sun moves into Libra (your zone of partnership) on September 22nd, look to joining forces with others to help you get ahead professionally. And speaking of your professional life, having transformative Pluto in Capricorn moving forward again (September 28th) in your zone of career and achievement, you should feel a sense of being reborn when it comes to pursuing your goals and ambitions. On the 29th, when Mercury moves into Libra, look to connect with new people; especially those that can teach you something new.
Taurus: Ready? Set? Go, Taurus! Though we’re entering the month on the tail end of a Mercury retrograde, it won’t mean that September will be a slow-moving month, as the stars will be doing their share to help push you forward. The action begins on September 5th, with passionate Mars entering Virgo, your zone of romance, creativity, and adventure. With Mars revving things up, you’ll find that you’ll be craving more fun and excitement than usual. This is a good thing as Mars will help you to find the courage to try new things and avoid getting stuck on the same old stuff. That goes for love affairs too. With Mercury moving forward again in Leo (September 5th); your zone of home and family, you should have a clear idea of what you may need to release from your past in order to move forward. You may need to save some of those goodbyes for some of the people in your life, especially if they haven’t been the type you can count on. The Full Moon in Pisces on September 6th may highlight this as it illuminates your zone of friendships and alliances. At the same time, this moon may also show you where you could do more to give back to others or be more supportive of a friend.

Look to this month as your planetary pass to break the monotony. Right now it’s about feeding your biggest dreams and your big spirit. On the 11th, Venus moves into Capricorn and into your zone of intimacy and finances. With Venus here you could come by some extra cash through an investment, a financial gift or a loan. If you’ve been looking for funding for something you’ve been wanting, this is an excellent time to apply for a grant, scholarship, or loan. On the 12th, Mercury steps into Sagittarius; lighting up your zone of partnership. Take a cue from Mercury to invite some spontaneity or a change of pace into your love life. Since Sagittarius is a jet-setting kind sign, this could mean finding romance with someone who’s not your usual type or who has a love of travel/exploration. With this area of your chart also in charge of business alliances, this is a great time to align yourself with someone that can help you grow your business, reputation, or client pool. On the 14th, a Full Moon in Taurus (November 14th) lands in your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. Under this moon a secret or hidden information could be brought to light that could help you put less stock in what others think of you. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius; joining Mercury (and Saturn). Under this planetary power, you could move a significant relationship in to a deeper place of commitment or figure out where/how you’ve been wasting time with someone unworthy. Use the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29th to help you start fresh in love or embark on a new chapter in your relationship. This goes for business partnerships too.
Cancer: This month, it’s all about handling your biz thanks to motivated Mars moving into Aquarius—your zone of finances and deep bonding on November 9th. Under the influence of each, you’ll begin considering the investments you’ve been making in people as of late and whether or not you’ve been receiving a justifiable return on those investments. As a sign that’s motivated by safety and security you thrive on relationships that are mutually beneficial or at the very least, offer you something for the long term.

Another way Mars can show up is by helping you take the steps necessary to achieve your financial freedom.

Leo: Partnership and relationships come to the forefront this month as feisty Mars enters Aquarius (November 9th), your zone of significant others. With Mars in this area of your chart, you’ll have to watch out for disagreements between you and your significant other (whether romantic or professional) over the next few weeks, though Mars here could give you the courage you need to end a bad business or romantic relationship or to set better boundaries within one. If you find that this energy has the two of you feeling cagey, channel that passion into the bedroom or boardroom. Sometimes there’s nothing like hot, angry sex or a heated brainstorming meeting to get the blood (and creativity) pumping. On the 11th, when Venus enters Capricorn, your zone of health and routine, it’s time to make prioritizing a part of your self-care routine. You love to stay busy and are always willing to lend a helping hand to others, but if you’ve got one to many things on your plate, you risk becoming overwhelmed and burnt out.

That’s because Mars, the planet of action, is entering Aquarius – your zone of health, work, and routine – on November 9th. With Mars in this area of your chart, your mission (should you choose to accept it) will be to establish better boundaries between your work life and your personal life, actively look for a new job if your current one is making you unhappy/physically ill, actively looking for new ways to beat fatigue, anxiety, or burnout (most likely through exercise), looking into alternative forms of treatment for a health condition.

With Mars in an unconventional sign like Aquarius, your best bet for a good time is to spend time traveling the off-beaten path. Take off for somewhere you’ve never been, with someone that’s not your usual type and see what kind of magic unfolds. Even if you’re happily in a relationship, expect the sparks to fly if you bring a little spontaneity and experimentation into the picture (or bedroom). On the 11th, when Venus enters security oriented Capricorn, your zone of home and family, some of you could decide to put down roots or establish more of a foundation by moving in with a partner, starting a family, purchasing a home or signing a lease, or building a home business.

With action-oriented Mars in this tender zone of your chart, the Universe is asking that you be more proactive in creating a sense of sanctuary for yourself. This could mean moving or relocating to a new place, making some improvements or upgrades to your space, or setting down some better boundaries between yourself and a person (or persons) that you share a residence or property with. Since a transit like this also has a knack for bringing up old resentments or wounds, this may also be a time for you to receive some sort of therapy to help you heal issues with anger. On the 11th Venus enters Capricorn, your zone of communication. With money-loving Venus here in a money-loving sign like Capricorn, your skill set and marketability come to the forefront this month.

Sagittarius: Let’s sit down and talk for a second, Sag. Have you been avoiding saying something you really need to say because you fear being uncomfortable? When gutsy Mars enters into Aquarius (November 9th), your zone of communication, whatever has been bubbling beneath the surface will need to find its way out. You’re known around the zodiac as being one of the more tell it like it is signs but since you’re also an adaptable, go with the flow kind of sign, you can sometimes put up with things way past their due date because you don’t want things to get ugly. The thing is, sometimes you need to face/handle the ugly in order to live authentically. And Mars in Aquarius certainly doesn’t want you sticking with a system, perception, or routine that is no longer working for you. On the 11th, money-loving Venus enters money-loving Capricorn, your zone of income and possessions. With Venus in this zone of your chart (along with Pluto), she will be working to help you attract opportunities that can help you increase your cash flow. However, the trick to making more money now will not only be about how much work you put in, but it will also be about whether or not you believe that you deserve such abundance. Now’s not the time play yourself small. On the 12th, talkative Mercury enters Sagittarius which should put you in the mood to be out and about.

Capricorn: Your month comes in with a bit of a bang, thanks to passionate Mars entering Aquarius (your zone of income and possessions) on November 9th.

However, instead of becoming overly focused on a space of lack, look to new ways that you can actively increase your income. Hint: it may be doing something that’s considered non-traditional or different from your normal. Either way, the money you make now will depend on your ability to be more assertive about your self-worth and what you truly deserve. In other words, this is not a time for settling. One caveat to this transit though: a spike in unexpected expenses. Have some reserves at the ready.

Also, since Mars is a very physical kind of planet, consider its trip through your sign the perfect time to work off any extra steam by doing something that gets you hot and sweaty. If a better body is what you’re after, Mars could also lend you the discipline needed to make it happen. On the 11th, pleasure-loving Venus enters Capricorn, your zone of rest, retreat, and healing.

Pisces: The month opens up a bit slowly thanks to action-oriented Mars entering Aquarius (November 9th) and stepping into your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. Since this zone is not a comfortable place for Mars to be, you’ll have to use Mars in Aquarius’ power to be proactive in finding new (and possibly nontraditional) ways to feed and nourish your soul. With pent up anger being one of the side effects of this transit, this could be the perfect time to start therapy. By the 11th, when pleasure loving Venus moves into Capricorn, you may feel caught between wanting to stay home and wanting to be social. However, don’t feel daunted.
