With three planets in retrograde and a full moon ahead, this Memorial Day Weekend was bound to be emotion packed.
Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto’s retrogrades will have you feeling as though life is happening in slow motion, or not up to the speed you want. Jupiter is the ruler of luck, expansion, and opportunity and since it’s currently in Scorpio, a fixed sign, you’ll still feel some of its power. Jupiter typically allows us to see the glass half full, harness that during this retrograde.
By July 10 until November, Jupiter will go direct again in Scorpio which will be an excellent time for settlement. During this slow down period allow yourself to catch your breath. And more importantly, prepare for a potent transit ahead as Venus will go retrograde from October 5 to November 16. Venus, the ruler of love and money, pay close attention to those aspects of your life. Taurus and Libra, you’re ruled by the Goddess of Love planet – pay extra close attention during that time.
Aries: (March 21 – April 19):
The transit in your 8th house will have you focused on taxes, insurance, estates and the resources of others. Aries, you and Libra will have financial benefits this year. One way or another there is a pretty financial picture shaping up. You could be touched with love and romance too! Either making something more permanent, long-term security will be a big theme for you this year. Jupiter is going direct in July which will allow you to have more consistency, especially when it comes to a job. More full-time opportunity will pop up between July and October. You may hear about births and weddings too.
Taurus: (April 20 – May 20):
The transit in your 7th house will have you examining relationships of all type, what needs to change and what you need to let go of. Rebecca stresses the importance of professional relationships as well. You may be reworking some relationships and setting different terms or expectations. A parade of new faces in your life is coming if you haven’t seen it yet! Lots of new people and new energy mean lots of changes!
Gemini: (May 21 – June 20):
The transit in your 6th house is drawing you towards a makeover. Rebecca says this year is a good time to spruce up your appearance. You have a real chance to change your weight, style, or how others see you. If a diet is needed, it won’t seem like a diet because it’s a weight loss period for you right now. You need to focus on your health and wellbeing. You’ll be more focused on your overall life, even spirituality. Check into new healthcare practitioners, not necessarily MD, maybe a yoga instructor. You’ll look and feel better than you have in a while, Gemini, be patient.
Cancer: (June 21 – July 22):
The transit in your 5th house is all about romance, creative expression and a time to celebrate the younger people in your life. Rebecca says anything artistic gets the green light. You’ll want it to shine through in your personal life. You may feel a bit sluggish right now but after July you’ll get a burst. Whether you’re looking to meet someone romantically or socially, July is the month to have your eyes peeled. Some existing relationships may need some clarification because you’ll meet a lot of fresh, new people from July onward.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
There’s a lot going on in your life especially since the transit falls in your 4th house. You’re occupied with your residence, property, family, living arrangements, and perhaps your entire lifestyle. Anything with Jupiter and Scorpio means water, water, water — check your pipes or plumbing and be mindful of repairs. Rebecca recommends troubleshooting. It’s also possible you may want to refurbish your bathroom or kitchen. Is someone moving in or out? Rebecca sees change under your roof into the summer months and beyond. You may hear of births, weddings or some type of addition to your family.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Rebecca says it’s time to get your track shoes on as Jupiter is in your 3rd house of communications. There’s a lot going on mentally and physically. Changes are on the way when it comes to relatives and relationships of all types, possibly happenings with your siblings. Watch your words though, they will have clot. Do you have a vacation coming up? There could be a lot of coming and going happening either with yourself or visitors.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
With Jupiter in your 2nd house, you’ll need to focus on your finances, investments and what’s closest to your heart which will become more defined. Jupiter is not a skimpy planet and you may feel self-indulgent, harness that and treat yourself better. You may start making more money or handle more money. This will be off and on throughout the year especially once in July. By the end of the year, you’ll start to feel flush. The perspective of money and how it works will become clear before the New Year.
Scorpio: (October 23 – November 21):
The transit in your 1st house will allow you to feel bigger and bolder and you’ll find yourself going after things that you really want. You may even feel lucky! This is your year Scorpio so decide where you want to be – look ahead, not back! Put your goals in place as Jupiter will not be in your transit again for 12 years. However since Jupiter is the planet of abundance, Rebecca says you may need to watch your weight a bit.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
You are chomping at the bit, Sag. You’re in a waiting game and the end, or beginning is near. Jupiter will move into your house by November and you’ll get set for an unbelievable end of the year and 2019. Til then you should go through things in your life. With this transit in your 12th house, you’ll feel reminiscent. Say the goodbyes you need too and make the changes you’ve wanted to make.
