Do you meditate? Do you set a time in the day to be by yourself, even for just a moment? Every day upon rising and going to bed, set time to be in solitude. Give thanks to the divine Creator who has equipped you with every organ in your body to be a functional and successful human being. Daily be in GRATITUDE and express this by journaling and acknowledging your ancestors and loved ones for the things you have. Have compassion. When you lie down for bed, do you ever wonder where and if your soul travels? Allow your spiritual travels to manifest so that your physical body can feel it as well. “When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love.” Marcus Aurelius

Capricorn: Saturn entered Capricorn in late December of 2017, teaching us tough love, learning invaluable lessons through obstacles, sacrifice, and self-restructuring. It also denoted turning short-term goals into a long-term plan with success in due time. This transit indicated significant changes within the government foundation to reconstruct the system and your home, including relationships with the environment. Saturn in Capricorn shoulders us with discipline, patience, trials, and tribulations for a profound cause, leaving you with a gift by the end of December for acknowledging Saturn’s delays. “When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” Willie Nelson

Aquarius: Reflect on the past Spring Solstice to July 2nd, when Saturn entered Aquarius. What were you doing then? Did you work or launch a new product? Did your workplace, home, or work schedule take a detour for a minute until you were able to adjust to the current changes? Did you receive an increase of money or a little fluctuation in your finances? Jot down what occurred to understand the beginning of a new chapter, a new way of life that is approaching around the week of Dec.18th, just before the Winter Solstice. A hint of what took place around this past March 20th and July 2nd was a news flash of insightful information of what’s up ahead. “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” Thornton Wilder

Pisces: You’ve accomplished a lot by forming new partnerships, sketching out your vision, analyzing, researching, and most of all, trusting yourself to listen to the inner voice that speaks within you. A bit of solitude is needed. Also, traveling to see a good view of the sea, trees, or paradise should be therapeutic. Reflect around June 23-Nov. 28 of this year to see what has been accomplished. Ideas should be flowing with Neptune’s energy retaining all the inner truth you’re searching for. You may feel at times as if a bucket of water is being poured on you, rejuvenating your soul and receiving divine downloads. “The greatest wealth is health.” Virgil

Aries: Mars entered Aries in late June, taking a backward spin during Sept. 9th, lasting until Nov. 15th of this year, retrograding in the fourth house. A challenging position for Aries to work on since it represses past emotional experiences, in addition to a constant need for encouragement, yet draining yourself and others to direct their energy. An excellent week to evaluate past actions while holding yourself accountable if you plan to successfully exit this transit. Learn how to measure yourself against yourself and not allow other people to develop the full essence of who you are. “Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic.” John Henry Jowett

Taurus: Cosmically speaking, May 2018 until April of 2026 suggest a significant shakeup in your finances, the home, and emotional, and environmental foundation. From Aug.15th until Jan. 14, 2021, there’s a pool of goodwill to keep lifting yourself from your lower self-awareness to higher awareness. It is a tug of war seeking the unknown, freeing your soul of outdated patterns and relationships to have a balance from within. “Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.” Christian Science Hymnal

Gemini: The north node in Gemini is reawakening your mind and soul to what you know, be it religion, science, belief systems, reality, or self-etc. restrictions. And don’t stretch yourself too thin doing this current 18-month transit. This transit will help you understand the issues and experiences of both sides of the coin. You may feel like the messenger to the people within your community but on a much more universal scale. So utilize the North node as a gateway to a better understanding of the things around you. “A thankful person is thankful under all circumstances.” Baha U Llah

Cancer: Learn how to overcome the lessons and challenges of life and remain focused on the quest. This week, strive to learn from past emotions, hurts, and disagreements along with work and personal concerns. No matter what you go through, stand tall, and honor your feelings as they have a direct correlation to your actions. Remember the golden rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Everyone goes through life changes, and that’s perhaps how you handle vital situations. “ A thankful heart hath a continual feast.” W.J Cameron

Leo: This month, you can see the fruit of your labor blossoming. Mentally, you had to buckle down to write that eventual book, start a podcast, open up a storefront or pop-up shop, or learn from experience. Take chances to better yourself and your career by keeping your eyes on the prize, as it all leads up to a long-term goal. This year indicates the midpoint of your quest as to which route you’ll choose to take to pull you onward and upward. “If there is magic on this planet it is contained in water.” Loren Eiseley

Virgo: This week requires a smidgen of freedom mixed with flexibility. You have many tasks to complete, daily errands for the home, and business-related matters to complete. A manicure/pedicure or full body massage will help relieve stress, pain, or discomfort in the body and make you feel revived. Release yourself from all toxic, unwanted behavior and patterns, habits, and people for a healthy relationship in the future. “It is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Libra: Your energy this week is feeling similar to a tug-of-war between yourself and helping others. For the moment, be creative in your developments along your personal and business lines. Beware of awkward moments that may occur catching you off guard. Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses to listen, see what you have been ignoring to finally see through a situation that may have upset you or caused you to question its true meaning. “No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.” James Allen

Scorpio: This is likely to be an intensely emotional week where your energy levels are in high gear. The purpose is to tap in, along with having a passion for helping those in need. More importantly, Venus in Scorpio is a time to heal yourself and all areas of your relationships, including the ones within yourself. Utilize your energy to allow space within yourself to journey through all your issues as you revisit and heal relationships with a loving spirit. Take baths to help you relieve what you’re holding. Protect your body, and remember to cover up your airways and especially the crown of your head. “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Philo of Alexandria

Sagittarius: This month is about expressing your independence in all areas of your life for improvement. Like the current North Node in Gemini, Mercury in Sagittarius, with the South Node in Sagittarius, makes for an exciting mix. Both have a great sense of humor, a vast wealth of knowledge, and at times can be a bit disruptive in their speaking. This cosmic phenomenon is likely to shower you with divine intuition and insight into your mental faculties. Learn both sides of a story to understand the universal laws and how they operate. In the process, learn to share with others by helping to bring something to the table. “Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it.” Ibn Khaldoun Al Muqaddima
