When Pluto goes direct in practical Capricorn on October 3, you get a little bit of the power back that you might have felt you lost when the planet was retrograde. This powerful combination puts you back in the driver’s seat, especially if you aren’t afraid to dig deep and tackle some of your inner issues. When financially focused Venus shifts into secretive Scorpio on the eighth, you might not feel like divulging all of your money issues to the world—or even those closest to you. Which can cause problems if you share a bank account with someone. Remember there’s a difference between being cautious and being intentionally deceptive. The sun-Jupiter sextile on October 13 lightens things up a bit and brings good luck to most of your daily encounters. Positive thinking can help you turn things around, so try to look on the bright side as much as possible. The sun pairs up with Scorpio on the twenty-third to bring a month full of focused energy, so start planning projects that you really want to finish. There might be a lot of hard work involved, but it will be so worth it when you can look back on all you were able to accomplish.

Have you been working hard without having enough fun lately? The Venus-Jupiter square is here on September 2 to change all that. Don’t get so caught up in partying that you forget about all your other responsibilities, though. Balance is still important. A stressful Mercury-Jupiter square on the sixth makes you question past decisions, especially if you felt distracted or pressured into them. It might be too late to change your mind, but you can still fix the situation. Avoid putting the blame on others. A sun-Jupiter square on September 8 is a double-edged sword that can make you feel extremely confident and proud one moment but then pay for being a little too full of yourself the next. The key to this transit is moderation, especially if you have tendencies to go overboard and lose control easily. An embarrassing situation can be a test of how seriously you take yourself during the Jupiter-Neptune square on the twenty-first, so don’t worry so much about saving face that you make an even bigger spectacle of yourself. Cut your losses and move on without making a scene whenever possible.

Breathe a sigh of relief as the complications brought on by Mercury retrograde are lifted now that this chatty planet is direct in sensitive Cancer. This is a good time to have a heart-to-heart chat with someone you’ve felt disconnected from lately. Lucky Jupiter goes direct on August 11, giving you time to thank your lucky stars. What are the things you’ve been taking for granted lately? This is a great time to start a gratitude journal or write thank-you notes to the people who’ve made a difference in your life. It isn’t the most comfortable pairing when loving Venus enters rigid Virgo on the twenty-first, mostly because romance can get lost in this transit’s sensible energy. It’s not that the magic is gone; it’s just covered up with schedules and details. Find time to connect with people on a human level amid the practicality. The sun also enters Virgo, on August 23, so be sure to take advantage of the hardworking energy it puts out over the next month. Cleaning, purging, and tidying up are this transit’s forte, and you can probably use it, right? You aren’t known for keeping the tidiest of living spaces, so surprise the people you live with by doing a complete top-to-bottom purge and cleanse!

Since your power planet Jupiter is retrograde in your own enthusiastic sign all month, keeping your mind and body in tip-top shape should be a priority. Eating healthful, nourishing food and getting enough sleep and exercise will give you the brainpower you need to solve some of your more pressing mental battles. Your sense of self is highlighted when healer Chiron in confident Aries goes retrograde on the eighth, and you’ll be challenged in areas where you’ve previously felt stuck. Even the smallest step forward now should be counted as a victory. There’s a full moon and partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16 that can complicate matters, especially when it comes to making forward progress in your job or career. What’s holding you back? Moving obstacles out of your way isn’t easy now. The Mars-Jupiter trine on the twenty-fifth brings good luck your way, and people listen to you and are impressed with your efforts. And don’t worry – no one has to know that luck played a huge role in your current success! The Leo new moon on July 31 is a great time to plant seeds for the projects and relationships you want see to grow in the near future. Making a detailed vision board will help you obtain the things you really want.
