“Wow,” is all Rebecca could say about this transit. There is a ton of potent energy this month with Mercury in retrograde and six other planets! If you’re not being affected by the transit, she wants to know how you’re side stepping it.
Aside from that a solar eclipse is happening Saturday, August 11 at 18 degree of Leo. It’s “too much Leo,” “too much fire and heat,” and Leo rules the Sun! You’ll feel things churning up around you and that can last for months. Whatever culminates during the eclipse until the 19th, when Mercury goes direct, be prepared – it could be a person, situation or plan.
It’s a very, very combustible time right now with communication especially. Leo comes with ego, and “swagger.” It’s a challenging period because everyone wants to be right. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will have the most tumultuous time. Jupiter in Scorpio is the only saving grace right now, but everything in Leo is squaring that too!
Aries: (March 21 – April 19):
The eclipse in your 5th house will have you dealing with anything and everything to do with your love life. The transit will bring conclusion or culmination – some of you may decide to put a ring on it or take it off… Jupiter in Scorpio is squaring the sun in your chart, highlighting what you share with another person and the resources of others. There may be a crimp with money issues. You need to look at things and examine them. Make decisions cautiously until Mercury is out of retrograde on the 19th.
Taurus: (April 20 – May 20):
Another “wow” from Rebecca. Because you’re in square aspect to all of this with Leo. You’ll have to focus on a lot this transit – home, real estate, family, children, parents, and elders. You should be doing a lot of deep, deep thinking. Are you dealing with property or changing residence? This is a time period for you where you’ll be called upon to make big decisions, most likely with family or residence. Your patience will be tested, and you’ll feel like you’re at cross roads or under fire.
Gemini: (May 21 – June 20):
You’re in the middle of a build up right now, but it’s not the best time to make something permanent. Don’t hit send on an impulse in this transit. Words will be fiery right now with Leo so be cautious with what you say and who you say it to. Rebecca warns of the “vehicle of your messages” – remember things can not be deleted. A lot is also happening with siblings and neighbors. The transit squares your 12th and 6th house – be prepared for work or health problems with you or someone around you. Both work and health are important aspects vying for your attention.
Cancer: (June 21 – July 22):
Rebecca senses something with numbers, working with figures, or legal papers. You could be making some important decisions that could affect your eclipse. Be careful about what you physically sign especially with the Mercury retrograde, you should probably wait until after the 19th or, better yet, September. You’ll do something important financially that has to do with long term security. You will feel a tug of war with different types of beliefs or how to spend your time. When it comes to relationships, things can move to the next level if they have been good or if bad you’ll have a chance to press pause. Some Cancers may feel like they’re in a holding pattern.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
You are the center of what’s going on right now – and that means a lot! The energy around you is magnetic with both the eclipse and retrograde in your sign. It may be hard to focus and understand information right now making you feel hazy and uncertain. This is not a good month to venture into something new because new beginnings are so unsettled due to the six retrogrades plus Mercury – a new slant or perspective may be better. You will be lucky enough to hold onto your status quo. Although you’re going through a lot personally, you’re a Leo and a powerhouse! Just watch your ego, maybe put a slight reign on it.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
All your secrets are coming to life as the transit falls in your 12th house. Whether it’s a secret your holding or one out there about you. You’ll confront yourself a lot and find out what’s making this period tricky. The 12th and 8th house are hard to predict, mentally and internally. You could be deciding to let go of something or someone. Look at the past, where you were a year ago, and get through it! You got it, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
This transit is in your 11th house of hopes and wishes. However, things may be complicating your life causing you to hesitate when hoping or wishing for anything. Rebecca says circle the month of October! That is when Venus will go retrograde in the sign of Scorpio, your money house. October and a slice of November will be an important time for you, allowing you to end the year better financially. But it won’t be an easy period as it’s a sextile to your sun sign. Other people could be to blame. When Mercury goes direct you’ll make a big decision.
Scorpio: (October 23 – November 21):
Your 10th house of career, credibility, and reputation is highlighted in this transit. You may change jobs, or get a new boss or supervisor. The eclipse will force someone or something to move out of your life within the next couple months. In 2019, you’ll see lots more money coming in. Rebecca also says it’s a good time to focus on family.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Your house of lady luck, or the 9th house, is lit up right now. And it trines your sun. The transit will give you extra edge, perhaps a second chance opportunity. The luck doesn’t have to mean slot machines, sometimes it will just give you an extra push to do something you’ve been wanting to do. Rebecca says you just have to do it! It’s a good time to tie up loose ends and learn to pay more attention to your intuition.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
The transit in your 8th house has Rebecca wondering about legal papers, bank, money or resources that are jointly held between you and another person. You’ll be making changes, letting go, or adding things in your financial setting. Be hesitate until the 19th. If you’re looking for a hobby it’s a great time for you to join a group, club, or organization – any way to link your energy with others in a positive way.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Take cover, Aquarius. Everything is standing opposition to your sun. The Mercury retrograde is in your house of relationships so tread lightly and carefully. It’s a delicate time for relationships. And you know, sometimes people just don’t hear what you say so focus on your communication skills. There could be some important happening with a male in your life too.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Time to focus on your day-to-day life as the transit falls in your 6th house of details, duties, and deadlines. Health should get a big circle, and that means emotional health too. Be extra careful and double check your schedule. What you need to do and what you’re expected of will be tested. There could be temporary changes in your work life soon. In the next month or so you’ll find the urge to travel or get out.
