Transiting Planets in the Houses

 

Transiting Sun in 1st house

During this time you can make a strong statement to the world about who you are and your presence has a more noticeable effect upon the people in your environment. If you want to make an impression on others, now is a fine time to do so. People recognize you and are likely to follow your lead, or at least they stay out of your way more readily than usual. You are likely to feel more confident and vital now.

However, you may be so preoccupied with yourself and your own desires that you unintentionally ignore other people and their needs.

Transiting Sun in 2nd house

Money, possessions, financial security, and practical matters are a focus for you now. If you tend to be generous or extravagant with your resources, you are prone to be even more so now, and if you have been struggling financially, you may begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. At the least, it should become clear to you what your next steps should be regarding your finances.

Transiting Sun in 3rd house

This is likely to be a busy, active time in which telephone calls, errands, commercial transactions, and the business of everyday living takes much of your time. You are also somewhat restless and not inclined to long quiet periods of concentrated or solitary work. You tend to fritter away your time on inconsequential social activities, but this may not be all bad. Taking time to chat with neighbors and associates may result in more positive and smoother-running relationships.

Transiting Sun in 4th house

Your domestic affairs, family relationships, and most intimate personal life are the focus of your attention now. This is a time to do what you can to build trust in your family life and a strong foundation within yourself, so that regardless of what you meet in the outside world, you have a secure place to return to. If you are of a contemplative nature, now is an ideal time to meditate and reflect. Your home is very important to you now also, and this is a good time to give it extra attention.

Transiting Sun in the 5th house

You are energized and inspired creatively and emotionally at this time, and you want to bring forth all that is within you. You express yourself more freely, playfully, and spontaneously and are more willing to take chances. The dramatic and performing arts, sports and games, or other forms of self-expression and entertainment appeal strongly to you now.

Transiting Sun in 6th house

Doing your best work and taking pride in it are a focus for you now. This is a good time to examine how you use your time and energy, with an eye to improving your efficiency and productivity.

Health matters are also a concern of yours now, and you may be inspired to begin a self-improvement program, create better health habits, or begin a new diet or fitness regimen.

Transiting Sun in 7th house

Partnerships, marriage, and your close one-to-one relationships engage much of your attention now and you are called upon to cooperate and perhaps to relinquish some of your own personal interests for the sake of harmony and mutual benefit. The emphasis is on “we” rather than “me”. You will not wish to go it alone and will seek the companionship and counsel of others.

If you are having difficulties in some area of your life, now is the time to seek the advice of a counselor or consultant, someone with an objective point of view.

Transiting Sun in 8th house

Joint financial affairs and investments are likely to be an issue at this time, and it is a good time to clarify each party’s expectations and to take care of legal business, insurance, wills, and so on.

On a personal level, there is a desire to intensify the level of intimacy and honesty in your closest relationships and to clear away anything which is impeding the deeper union you seek.

Transiting Sun in 9th house

This is a time to lift yourself out of your usual mundane concerns in order to get a larger perspective on your life. You seek new vistas and broader horizons through traveling, studying, or reading about foreign cultures or by seeking out people with greater experience, insight, and knowledge than your own. A teacher or mentor may be particularly important to you now.

Transiting Sun in 10th house

Your career, reputation, role in the community, and contribution to the world are very important to you at this time, and you can make significant gains regarding your ambitions. Recognition for your efforts and receiving credit for your accomplishments are likely now, if you’ve “done your homework”. This is an excellent time to ask for a promotion, or to engage the support of those in positions of higher authority.

Transiting Sun in 11th house

Involvement in clubs, social organizations, or any other group to which you belong is likely to be a focus at this time. You may be asked to take responsibility or even a leadership role or to contribute and participate more fully than you have in the past. You will enjoy being part of a team or group effort now. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time.

Transiting Sun in 12th house

Retreating from the world for awhile and spending some quiet time alone to relax and rejuvenate appeals strongly to you now. You may feel like you are at a low ebb and as if nothing is happening or you may simply not want to be “where the action is”. Competitive ambitions and ego drives are on hold now.

Transiting Moon in 1st house

You are more perceptive and sensitive and easily affected by what is going on in your environment, particularly the feelings and emotional currents of the people around you. Being at home or in a comfortable, supportive atmosphere feels best. You’re inclined to lack objectivity and to react from habit or past conditioning rather than doing what you think or know logically to be the best course.

Transiting Moon in 2nd house

This is a time for taking care of your possessions and personal belongings. Simple activities such as washing your car, putting your home in order, maintaining your yard, or attending to your wardrobe give you a sense of satisfaction and security. See what you can do to secure your valuables or your finances.

You also tend to spend money on impulse or whim, especially on something that has more emotional appeal than practical value.

Transiting Moon in 3rd house

Your communication and interaction with others is colored by emotional considerations and your need to have an emotional rapport and to feel a kinship with others. However, events from the past and subjective assessments and feelings which may have little basis in the present may also influence your thinking at this time.

Transiting Moon in 4th house

Your desire for comfort, security, and privacy is stronger now and spending some quality time with your family or by yourself at home is satisfying. This is a time for going within to replenish yourself in order to meet the challenges and stresses of your usual activities. Domestic or family matters are emphasized.

Transiting Moon in 5th house

Now is a time for coming out of your shell, expressing your real desires and feelings, and openly displaying the caring you feel for others.

Also, your playful, fun-loving, or dramatic side is accentuated. You can enjoy sports, games, entertainment, and creative activities.

Transiting Moon in 6th house

Now you tend to put your feelings on hold while you attend to practical demands and necessities. Taking care of immediate responsibilities and situations that arise at work requires your attention.

Concern over health, diet and nutrition, putting your life in order, and self-improvement is also accentuated.

Transiting Moon in 7th house

Since all close relationships require “care and feeding” in order to remain healthy and strong, it is a good idea to devote some attention and time to them regularly. And now is the time for you to do that! Your ties to women and your need to connect with important females in your life is emphasized.

Transiting Moon in 8th house

You have concerns about money, jointly-held assets and property, or personal belongings to which there is an emotional attachment and you tend to react as you always have in the past rather than viewing these issues objectively. Also, your emotions are more intense and you may overreact to some encounter.

Transiting Moon in 9th house

The desire to go on a mini-vacation or a getaway from your usual concerns is strong now and if you can do so, go and enjoy yourself.

Putting things in perspective, getting an overview of the daily matters that normally take up so much of your time, and doing something that expands your horizons are accentuated.

Transiting Moon in 10th house

Concerns about your career, work, long-range goals and life direction, reputation and public image, and professional issues arise now.

Whatever you do tends to be more open, more public, and more available for the world to see. People see more of the private or personal side of you – whether you want them to or not.

Transiting Moon in 11th house

A need for community, fellowship, emotional contact with kindred spirits, friendship, and supportive others is accentuated now. Deepening the closeness between yourself and others beyond your most immediate family is very worthwhile now. Also, cultural events or participating in some group effort is satisfying.

Transiting Moon in 12th house

You are apt to feel especially sensitive, moody, and desirous of privacy and solitude. You may instinctively wish to shield yourself from emotions and problems of others. This is a good time for peaceful meditation, contemplation, and spiritual renewal.

Transiting Mercury in 1st house

At this time you are likely to speak out and let your voice be heard on matters you have been considering or mulling over for some time. You are keen and alert, and you express yourself well. This is an excellent time to initiate discussions and communication, but you may be so intent on getting your message across that you don’t really listen to what anyone else has to say.

Transiting Mercury in 2nd house

At this time you have many thoughts and discussions about finances, commercial transactions, your personal assets, and material security. You are thinking about how you spend money and manage your resources. This is a very good time to consult with a financial planner or accountant and to get your business affairs in order.

Transiting Mercury in 3rd house

Your intellectual curiosity and mental restlessness is high now and you may flit from one activity to another or spend a lot of time chatting and socializing. Plan frequent outings and short excursions to satisfy your need to move about and to communicate.

This is a good time to take a field trip or to travel for business purposes.

Transiting Mercury in 4th house

You are likely to be in a rather nostalgic frame of mind, remembering earlier days and thinking and speaking about past events. This is a good time for communicating with family members, perhaps re-establishing your connection or resolving a long standing problem between you. Speaking about very personal, private matters comes easier to you now. You may also find it worthwhile to record some of your musings, memories, and thoughts in a journal or diary.

Transiting Mercury in 5th house

Entertainment and amusements that are mentally challenging, such as chess, crossword puzzles, or other word games, have a strong appeal to you now. You will also enjoy dramatic presentations, the theater, creative writing and, if you have natural leanings in any of these areas, you will be inspired with ideas for future creative projects.

Transiting Mercury in 6th house

Thinking, reading, and learning about how to improve your work, or some aspect of it, is on the agenda now. You may learn a new technique. Discussions with co-workers, employers, and employees are likely to be fruitful, and minor but beneficial changes are likely to result.

Talking about any health concerns you may have, (with someone knowledgeable) is also helpful at this time.

Transiting Mercury in 7th house

At this time you need and seek out the opinions, advice, and counsel of others, realizing that an objective or opposing point of view helps you clarify your own thoughts. You may find others playing devil’s advocate in your discussions.

Talking with your mate, business partner, or other close associates is likely to be helpful now, and you may be able to negotiate some agreement or come to some resolution of a problem you’ve been having. You’re likely to be more fair and detached at this time.

Transiting Mercury in 8th house

Communication and negotiations regarding joint finances, shared assets and investments, and property or anything else you own in common with another person, are likely now. It is a good time to get such affairs in order. Discussions about death are also likely to arise, both over legalities (wills, inheritances, and so on), and the more emotional, personal aspects of it.

Transiting Mercury in 9th house

This is a good time to plan or take a journey to a distant land. Travel and exposure to new ideas and ways of thinking about the world interest you now. You may meet and learn from someone from another culture or with vastly different beliefs and experiences than your own. Philosophical discussions or studies are also on the agenda. You’re thinking about the “big picture” rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life.

Transiting Mercury in 10th house

Career planning strategies or thinking of concrete ways to make your dreams into realities as well as sharing your thoughts on these matters with a few significant others should be very fruitful now. It is a good time to communicate with someone in a position to help you achieve your aspirations.

Transiting Mercury in 11th house

If you belong to any club or organization, you are likely to be involved in group discussions, planning sessions, or committees at this time. Even if you don’t participate in any such group, a sense of community is important to you now, and you’ll be thinking about how you can take part and contribute. You will want to socialize and talk with people you share common interests and ideals with.

Transiting Mercury in 12th house

This is a good time for quiet study and inward reflection. Your intuition and sensitivity to the hidden, behind the scenes aspects of a situation are operating strongly now. However, you are less inclined to speak your mind or take a definite stand on important matters. A wait-and-see attitude is likely to characterize this time period.

Transiting Venus in 1st house

Your desire for harmony, beauty, and gracious surroundings is stronger than usual and you avoid unpleasantness as much as possible. You’re inclined to use charm, gentle coaxing, and loving persuasion rather than more direct, forceful methods to get what you want. At this time, pleasure and affection are more important to you than work, and you may be rather lazy, but pleasantly and cheerfully so.

Transiting Venus in 2nd house

You may be very tempted to spend lavishly on special treats that will make your life more comfortable and pleasant, and frivolous purchases may be hard to resist. This is a fine time, however, to buy art, jewelry, or other beautiful things which will increase in value and be appreciated for a long time to come.

Transiting Venus in 3rd house

Cooperative neighbors and agreeable relations with people in your immediate circle characterize this time period. It is an excellent time to make social visits, ameliorate old grievances, and make friendly overtures to others. Attending cultural events and taking short trips for pleasure and recreation are quite satisfying now.

Transiting Venus in 4th house

At this time you will want to make your home more pleasing, comfortable, and beautiful, perhaps by doing some artistic decorating or landscaping or buying something which will give you and your family much pleasure. You feel very kindly and affectionate toward family members, and you may do some entertaining or invite friends in to enjoy your hospitality, as well.

Transiting Venus in 5th house

You are feeling inspired creatively and romantically and you express your loving feelings quite openly now. Creative self-expression of any kind is favored at this time. You will also thoroughly enjoy artistic, musical, or cultural events and activities, especially in the company of a loved one.

Transiting Venus in 6th house

At this time you have a cooperative and receptive attitude which promotes harmonious relationships with your co-workers, employers, and employees. You may be a peacemaker (or even a matchmaker!) at work. You may, however, not feel like working very intensively. A pleasant break from routine, even a short vacation, would be appropriate now.

Transiting Venus in 7th house

This is a very favorable time for meeting people, particularly potential friends or romantic partners. You are feeling especially open-hearted and will find that others are very receptive to your friendly overtures. You want companionship and affection very much at this time and will not want to go it alone. If you are married, the love and attention you give to your mate will make your relationship much smoother and happier.

Transiting Venus in 8th house

Financial or business affairs are favored at this time and you may meet a benefactor through friends or in a social atmosphere. You are likely to get both the financial backing and the emotional support you need to succeed.

On a personal level, intimate relationships are intensified. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Transiting Venus in 9th house

At this time you are attracted to foreign cultures and art forms and to people and experiences that are different from anything you’ve encountered in the past. The exotic and unknown have much more appeal to you than the familiar. This is an excellent time for a vacation, particularly if you can travel to someplace you’ve never been before.

Also, sharing and comparing your spiritual, religious, or philosophical interests with a friend or loved one may open up a whole new dimension of your relationship.

Transiting Venus in 10th house

Your career, social standing, or reputation is favored at this time, especially by making personal contact with superiors or by socializing and making friendly contacts at work. You may make a good friend or meet someone beautiful and charming through your work. Now is also a good time to enhance your public standing and to create good will with the public.

Transiting Venus in 11th house

Meeting with people who share common ideals or purposes, either on a professional or personal level, will be very successful now. You have a friendly, cooperative attitude that will help such gatherings flow smoothly.

You need and want to socialize now. Parties or other gala events are favored. Getting together with a group of friends to play music or sing would be very satisfying.

Transiting Venus in 12th house

You are not likely to be very gregarious or sociable now, and you may feel that you cannot be openly affectionate with someone you care about. You may have romantic yearnings for someone that is unavailable to you, and great discretion regarding this relationship may be called for.

On the other hand, a friend or loved one may need you very much. You could be called upon to give to or care for them without getting much personal enjoyment or pleasure at the moment, except through serving them in an unselfish way.

Transiting Mars in 1st house

You are decisive and forthright and your energy level is high. You appear rather headstrong and most people will stay out of your way, or let you take the lead. You aren’t very patient or conciliatory now and won’t avoid a confrontation. You may even provoke them in an unnecessarily forceful or inconsiderate manner. Now is the time to act, but try not to be foolhardy or step on too many toes.

Transiting Mars in 2nd house

If you have been passive or nonchalant about business affairs, finances, and material security, you will begin taking a more active, positive attitude toward this area of your life. Increased ambition and enterprise are likely, but arguments over money are also more frequent than usual now.

Transiting Mars in 3rd house

At this time, you communicate more directly and forcefully, and you are prone to be rather abrasive. Impatient with others’ ambiguity, vagueness, or noncommittal stance, you may provoke arguments in an effort to get a clear answer or decision from someone. It is better to “attack” some intellectual problem or task, rather than your neighbors and friends.

Transiting Mars in 4th house

Much productive activity in your home is likely. Do-it-yourself home improvements, working hard to get your home the way you’d like it, or tackling some ambitious projects in the house or yard may be on the agenda.

You or others in your family may also be more defensive and quick to blow up over petty annoyances. Friction with parents and other close relatives or old rivalries with your family can be a source of considerable stress at this time.

Transiting Mars in 5th house

Your drive for self-expression is high now and you pour yourself into competitive sports and games, contests, auditions, and so on with great energy and zeal. You play hard and you play to win. All creative projects and interests will get an extra burst of energy.

Romantic urges also run high and you will actively pursue the one you desire. A love relationship is likely to intensify at this time.

Transiting Mars in 6th house

You are fired up at work and aim to accomplish a lot, but friction may arise with your co-workers if you are too impatient and pushy. You are not much of a team player right now and it would be better if you could work on your own.

This is also an excellent time to begin a health regimen or vigorous exercise program, but be certain not to overexert yourself.

Transiting Mars in 7th house

At this time you are less willing to compromise or to overlook differences for the sake of harmony in your relationships and less willing to sacrifice your own needs and desires. Any tensions which have been simmering in your marriage or other close associations are likely to boil over now. If you are of an argumentative nature, quarrels and confrontations will be more frequent.

Positively, you are more inclined to initiate contact with someone that you wish to make a connection with, and you may begin a relationship at this time that will be very worthwhile, one in which you are the pursuer or active partner.

Transiting Mars in 8th house

Disputes over shared resources, joint finances, or anything which you hold in common with another are more likely now, and you are prone to impulsiveness and recklessness regarding such matters. Also, fights over money may only be symbolic of other, deeper conflicts between you and your mate or business partner, such as questions of personal power and control in the relationship.

Your desires and passions are stirred up now as well and this can be a time of a sexual and emotional renaissance in an intimate relationship.

Transiting Mars in 9th house

If you have a zealous or fanatical streak, this will come to the forefront now. You are eager to defend your convictions or fight for a cause you believe in. You may encounter others who are aggressively promoting their philosophy, as well.

Also, the desire for action and adventure may impel you to travel or to undertake an enterprise that is physically or mentally challenging, and possibly dangerous.

Transiting Mars in 10th house

You are strongly motivated to achieve your professional goals and get personal recognition for your efforts, and competitive energies run high. Ego conflicts, especially with those in authority or who have some bearing on your career life, may arise. Try to control or temper your ambition with consideration for others.

Your urge to act and to do is so strong that you are prone to rush and to try to force your will in situations where waiting may be more appropriate.

Transiting Mars in 11th house

You may play a leadership role in a group or organization that you are affiliated with or take some initiative in a group situation. You are fired up about your ideals and can stir others to action. Team sports and group efforts of any kind appeal to you now.

Transiting Mars in 12th house

At this time, you’re likely to feel that you cannot make your desires or influence felt, and that things go awry when you try to assert yourself, make an impact, or get things done in a forthright way. Retreating from confrontation and allowing matters to take their own course may well be the best path now. Though not the most auspicious time to act on your own behalf, this is a good time to do things that benefit others. Selfless work is likely to be the most satisfying avenue for you now.

Transiting Jupiter in 1st house

A surge of optimism and confidence characterizes this time period, and you radiate more of your positive qualities, which may open up many opportunities for you. Beliefs about yourself which have in the past limited what you were willing to aim for in life will have a less powerful influence on you, and you’ll experience an expanded sense of possibilities and hope for the future.

There is also a tendency for you to expand physically as well, so take care not to overindulge in the good things of life.

Transiting Jupiter in the 2nd house

Money matters and concerns about material resources and future financial well-being are important to you now. You may learn more about how to increase your assets, but you are also inclined to be overly generous, extravagant, or careless with your money and possessions. You can greatly improve your financial status at this time if you curb a tendency to buy more than you really want or need.

Transiting Jupiter in 3rd house

Improved relationships with neighbors and those people you meet on a regular basis in the day-to-day business of life, are likely now. You are more tolerant and forgiving and more willing to remain open-minded on topics you might have been quick to criticize or disregard in the past.

Restlessness, both physical and mental, may cause you to take frequent short trips which are both entertaining and educational. Beginning a new course of study is excellent now.

Transiting Jupiter in 4th house

Improved family relationships, moving to a place that is larger or more comfortable, and a greater sense of inner security and contentment characterizes this time period.

Investing in real estate or home improvements is likely to bring you satisfaction now, and it will also work out well for you in the long run.

Transiting Jupiter in 5th house

A burst of inspiration, playfulness, and energy for creative projects infuses this time period. Relationships with children are likely to be excellent, as you are feeling more free and childlike in many ways yourself. Personal inhibitions are discarded rather easily now and this opens up all kinds of new possibilities both creatively and romantically.

Transiting Jupiter in 6th house

Promising and positive developments at work are likely now and you should feel increasing happiness in your work. You’ll discover ways to improve your work, to perhaps let more people know what you are doing, or to expand your knowledge of your field.

Your health is likely to get a boost now also, and you may be enthused about a new health plan or fitness program which will be of long-term benefit.

Transiting Jupiter in 7th house

Harmony and increased satisfaction in your marriage and in your personal interactions in general are very likely, perhaps because you are more tolerant, generous, and unpossessive than usual. However, you are also feeling a strong need not to be restricted or possessed by others either, for you sense that many people have something of value to offer you and you do not want to limit your world to just a few. Expanding your social involvement and meeting new people appeal to you more than ever.

Transiting Jupiter in 8th house

Fortunate developments in business or through your mate’s help and support (both emotional and financial) are likely to occur now. If you are considering joining forces and pooling your resources with someone else, now is a fine time to do so.

On an inner level, this is likely to be a time of psychological and emotional rejuvenation, healing, and positive change. It is easier for you to eliminate old conditioning or negative patterns. Whatever leaves your life now is paving the way for something much better.

Transiting Jupiter in 9th house

This is a time when the big questions of life occupy your attention and you may be drawn to study philosophy, religion, metaphysics, or other areas which open up new worlds for you. Mind-expanding studies or travel are likely, and foreign cultures have a strong appeal to you now. A pilgrimage or journey may be on the agenda.

Transiting Jupiter in 10th house

Opportunities for advancement in your profession or for achieving some important goal or aspiration are likely at this time. If you have been working diligently, this is a time of public recognition for your efforts and an enhanced reputation. On the other hand, you may begin to feel cramped in the area you are working in presently, discovering that it doesn’t have enough scope in which case, you may change directions and begin a new and more promising line of endeavor. This is a good time to make such changes. You have more trust and faith that you can accomplish your dreams.

Transiting Jupiter in 11th house

Expanding your social involvements is emphasized now and you are likely to meet new friends and benefactors through participating in groups or community activities. A feeling of fellowship and of belonging to a community of people with common interests or ideals is important to you. Social betterment and contributing something to society is of concern to you more than ever.

Transiting Jupiter in 12th house

This is a very positive time of healing, renewal, and rejuvenation on an inner, spiritual, or psychological level. Times of introspection and solitude are very beneficial now, and they will set the stage for blossoming and outward success later on. You may also be drawn to charity or volunteer work at this time.

Transiting Saturn in 1st house

This may be a rather heavy or somber time in your life. You are likely to be more serious and introspective and less carefree. You also tend to be rather critical of yourself and of your past endeavors, perhaps more so than you need to be. An increased sense of personal responsibility, maturity, dedication, and realism, and eliminating the frivolous or immature aspects of your life and personality are on the agenda. This is a time to begin redefining yourself and recognizing your limitations, as well as your true capacities.

Transiting Saturn in 2nd house

Getting realistic about financial matters and material security and building a solid financial base are a focus for you now. You are inclined to play it safe and to conserve rather than spend or invest in speculative ventures, and this is a good route for you to take at this time. This can be a period of asceticism or strict budgeting also, especially if you’ve been wasteful and careless with resources in the past.

Transiting Saturn in 3rd house

You are less interested in small talk or inconsequential chatter, and you may find yourself avoiding neighbors or others in your immediate circle as a result. Also, you may have changed significantly over the past year or more, and you feel uncomfortable when people seem to be relating to the person you used to be rather than who you are now.

On another level, this is a good time to begin any formal, disciplined, systematic course of study, as you have the capacity to concentrate and focus your attention on such work now.

Transiting Saturn in 4th house

Domestic duties, obligations, and responsibilities to your family are likely to increase at this time, and they may become somewhat burdensome. It is a good idea to give your home and family the attention they seem to demand now and to do all you can to build a secure foundation of family solidarity and personal stability, even though this may require much of you.

This is also a time to look deeply within yourself and to uproot old, negative conditioning and unhealthy patterns which you may have had since childhood. Rectifying your relationship to your parents, or freeing yourself from their influence in your adult life, is likely to be in the picture.

Transiting Saturn in 5th house

This is a period of discipline, patient practice, and working at giving form to your creative impulses; it’s more a time of perspiration than inspiration. Your self-expression may not flow as freely and spontaneously as before because you are more self-conscious and also more concerned about perfecting your performance or your product, rather than just having fun.

Romantic involvements are likely to be fewer, but deeper and more serious. An old love may come into your life.

Transiting Saturn in 6th house

Work may seem like a terrible grind at this time. Tedious drudgery, inhospitable working conditions, or simply taking care of the inescapable but dull requirements of your work are likely to take precedence now. It’s a time of duty before pleasure.

Watch your health carefully now, as overwork, poor habits, or accumulated stress may force you to cut back and take better care of your body.

Transiting Saturn in 7th house

At this time you will begin to examine or be forced to confront the quality and nature of your relationships to the people in your life. It is sometimes a period of testing and considerable stress in a marriage or other close relationship. Because you begin to see things as they really are, you may become disillusioned with your mate or your friends and sever attachments which are not healthy or fulfilling for you. At the very least, you may wish to withdraw for a time. You also have less time for social involvements, as you focus on the most significant relationships in your life, which require attention and strengthening now.

Positively, you may now feel ready to make personal commitments and take on more responsibility in your relationships, based on an assessment of your true needs and capacity to give.

Transiting Saturn in 8th house

Greater responsibility and concern over business affairs, joint finances, and anything you own in common with another are on the agenda. You may feel burdened by the commitments for support which you have pledged, or you suddenly find a source of income that you relied upon is no longer available to you. This is definitely not a good time to initiate business ventures or go into debt.

On another level, you may become morbidly fascinated with death – your own or someone else’s. This may be a good time to face your fears of mortality and perhaps begin to rectify some of your ways in accordance with your awareness of its inevitability.

Transiting Saturn in 9th house

Clarifying and defining your philosophy of life is an important process in your life now. This may be a time when your faith is tested, and you come to see what you truly believe. You adopt a more skeptical “show me” attitude and desire proof that a philosophy, religion, or belief system is both true and workable in your life. By the time this cycle is over, you are likely to have come to some definite, firm conclusions about the big questions of life.

This is also a good time to begin a formal, disciplined course of study, and you are interested in wisdom or Truth more than mere knowledge.

Transiting Saturn in 10th house

This is a time of culmination, completion, and fruition, as well as greater demands, responsibilities, and recognition in your profession. You begin to reap the just rewards for the course you have been following the past few years, so this may be either a period of success and achievement or one in which you must face the failure of your endeavors. If you have been acting with integrity and building on a firm foundation, you are likely to come into prominence in some way but, if not, this can be a period of severe chastisement and defeat.

Either way, this ushers in a cycle in which crucial

decisions about the next phase of your life and ambitions will need to be made.

Transiting Saturn in 11th house

This is a time of greater involvement in political or social movements and groups which are organized around a common cause or ideal.

Commitments and loyalties to your friends and your community may impel you to get involved in a more concrete way, perhaps taking on more responsibilities than you have in the past. At the same time, you feel less sociable than usual and avoid groups or occasions to get together with people if you think that there is no real purpose in it.

Transiting Saturn in 12th house

This can be a lonely period of isolation for you. Severing ties and eliminating anything nonessential from your life enables you to clear away the old to make way for the new, unencumbered by the debts and baggage from the past. Beware of the inclination to view everything you’ve done until now in a negative light. Guilt and a sense of failure or disappointment may nag you. Try, instead, to be detached and dispassionate about your mistakes and the things which did not turn out as you hoped and begin to make quiet preparations for the next cycle in your life.

Transiting Uranus in 1st house

During this entire period (and especially at the beginning) you will be breaking out of old patterns and ways of relating to the world, which can cause quite a bit of disruption in your life. People who do not want you to change and who are invested in maintaining the status quo are likely to be particularly upset. You seem more erratic, spontaneous, and unreliable, even to yourself. You are experimenting with different ways of being and may adopt a more unconventional or individualistic attitude. Your inner restlessness and need to make changes may also impel you to relocate or make some other radical departure from the life you’ve been living until now.

Transiting Uranus in 2nd house

Sudden changes in your finances or your means of livelihood are quite likely now. Your economic situation will fluctuate a great deal. Sudden windfalls or reversals are possible but don’t plan on them, for the unexpected is the only certainty now when it comes to money and material matters. You may let go of a stable, steady source of income in order to venture into new and potentially risky territory, financially speaking. You’ll need to learn to live with a certain amount of insecurity in this area of your life during this time.

Transiting Uranus in 3rd house

Original thinking, new and different ways of perceiving the world, new techniques and technology related to learning and communications, and more mental and intellectual stimulation characterize this time period. You may begin studying a subject which will revolutionize your thinking, and esoteric sciences and techniques (such as astrology) hold particular fascination for you. If you are particularly rigid in your thinking and uncomfortable with anything that doesn’t fit into a neat category with a rational explanation, then this may be a somewhat unsettling time for you. Otherwise, this can be an exciting period in which you are exposed to ideas that open new worlds for you.

Transiting Uranus in 4th house

Sudden and unexpected changes in your domestic situation and in your most personal, inner life are likely now. You may move to a new location which is totally different from your familiar home and the world you are accustomed to. Feeling unsettled, uprooted, and somewhat insecure during this time is not uncommon, even if the change is a positive and desired one.

Being liberated from the past, from outdated conditioning, or from family ties and expectations which stultify you and being catapulted into a situation in which you may feel quite inexperienced is also characteristic of this time.

Transiting Uranus in 5th house

Personal inhibitions and social conventions which in the past may have restricted your self-expression or creativity are now shed. You are much more willing to experiment and take chances, to try new things, and to be a little wild. If you are artistically or creatively inclined, you’ll discover a fresh approach or technique which may radically alter your work, and you’ll have bursts of sudden inspiration and intense activity.

Also, unusual, exciting romances are quite possible now.

Transiting Uranus in 6th house

Unexpected developments at work may disrupt your routine and the atmosphere of your work place or the nature of your duties may change radically. You may feel an inner restlessness and discontent with the more tedious aspects of your job and will seek out a position that is more challenging and interesting.

Tension with co-workers is likely, as you are a little on edge, especially if your need to make changes is thwarted.

Transiting Uranus in 7th house

Sudden, unexpected, and often quite radical changes in your marriage or in other close relationships characterize this time period. If you or your mate has been unhappy, you will not be able to avoid confronting these issues. Even if the two of you are doing well together, you will begin doing things differently in order to satisfy your need for variety and excitement, which is strong now.

Relationships which are initiated now will have a destabilizing and liberating effect upon you. The people you encounter are likely to be unusual and may show you a very different side of life than you’ve been exposed to before. They may also be unreliable in their dealings with you, or they may come and go very quickly.

Transiting Uranus in 8th house

Unexpected developments concerning material resources which you hold in common with another person (such as a mate or business partner) are likely to occur at this time. Sudden windfalls or reversals are also quite possible, but it is best not to depend upon them because fluctuation and change are the only certainties in this period. Sudden decisions, such as deciding to sell a piece of property you own together, are quite common.

On another level, this signals the beginning of some profound changes within yourself, possibly inaugurated by an event which was completely unexpected and out of your control. Rather than fearing change, try to keep an open attitude.

Transiting Uranus in 9th house

You will be exposed to beliefs, ideas, and philosophies which are unusual, avant-garde, or radically different from the ones you presently espouse. Unless you are open-minded and flexible in your thinking, this can be an unsettling period in which your whole way of viewing the world is challenged and turned upside down.

At this time, traditional religion and believing something because the authorities or experts tell you it is so have very little appeal for you. You will be discovering your own truth, and it may have very little similarity to the beliefs you’ve held until now.

Transiting Uranus in 10th house

This is likely to mark a time when your life direction and your important personal goals and aspirations or the course of your professional life changes radically. You may discover a talent or interest which impels you to take a very different path than the one you’ve been on, and following this new way involves taking risks and letting go of your outer security and dependencies.

Also, you are feeling impatient and rebellious toward authority or duty. You are prone to do stupid, impulsive things simply out of frustration with the limitations and restrictions in your life. Try not to throw the baby out with the bath water.

Transiting Uranus in 11th house

Significant changes in your social circle, your friends and associates, or the groups and organizations you are affiliated with occur at this time. There could be a sudden disruption or unexpected turn of events in some group of which you are a part. You are moving away from the conservative or outdated and are likely to meet a number of unusual, interesting people at this time. You seem to be drawn to those who are more idealistic, innovative, creative, free-spirited, or eccentric.

Transiting Uranus in 12th house

Strange, uncanny experiences or coincidences which seem to come out of the blue may become rather frequent now. You may feel a sudden interest in esoteric teachings, the workings of the unconscious mind, or techniques for exploring the psyche or the spiritual realm in an effort to explain some of the unusual feelings and events you experience.

On a more concrete level, you may uncover something which has been missing, lost, or hidden away for a long time.

Transiting Neptune in 1st house

At this time, you see the world through the filter of your idealism or your imagination, and you may get involved with people or projects that are not what they first seem to be. You need to be wary of deceiving yourself or being duped, because you are much more receptive and gullible now and may allow yourself to be drawn into something which at other times you would have the discrimination and common sense to avoid. Your sense of reality is not as strong and clear-cut during this period of your life, particularly regarding yourself. However, the positive side of this is that you are more compassionate, less intensely focused on your own self-centered needs, more universal in your concerns, and more open to the intangible realms of inspiration and beauty.

Transiting Neptune in 2nd house

During this time, your values will change tremendously. Money and possessions as a source of security are likely to become much less important to you, and you may begin to be rather careless or even totally unconcerned about financial matters. Disillusionment in the area of material assets, investments, and finances is likely to bring about a complete revision in your sense of what is important. Greater detachment and less anxiety about money are likely to be the result in the long run.

Beware of get-rich-quick schemes, shysters, and those promising easy wealth. Greediness on your part is likely to be very costly to you, both monetarily and in terms of self-esteem.

Transiting Neptune in 3rd house

Fuzzy or confused thinking, misunderstandings based on a lack of clarity in the way you communicate, and inability to concentrate on your immediate mundane tasks are the more problematic possibilities of this cycle. You may also find yourself fantasizing and drifting off into daydreams more often , though this isn’t necessarily all bad. While your logical, analytical, factual side may be less focused, your intuitive and imaginative side is activated, and you begin to see the world as a much more interesting and beautiful place. Latent psychic or clairvoyant abilities may surface, and an interest in poetry, dreams, spiritual studies, or art becomes more pronounced.

Transiting Neptune in 4th house

This can be an insecure time in your life. You may feel as though the solid foundation you have built your life upon is dissolving, leaving you on rather unsteady ground. Circumstances in your home or with family members may be rather uncertain or confusing, or you may feel less confident within yourself without quite knowing why. You’ll need to search deep within yourself for peace and security. At this time also, you may idealize “Home” as your salvation, your safe haven in a seemingly difficult world, your place of retreat which is fine as long as you do not retreat too much from the challenges of being involved with the outside world.

Transiting Neptune in 5th house

You are apt to be extravagantly romantic and idealistic about love at this time. Fantasies about the perfect lover or your “soul mate” may occupy your mind a great deal. You tend to either idealize any potential romantic partners you meet or you evaluate them against impossibly high, unrealistic standards. Positively, your very active imagination and creative energy can be channeled into inspired artistic, musical, or literary endeavors. If you’ve ever wanted to perform on a stage or be involved in theater, this is a fine time to pursue that dream.

Transiting Neptune in 6th house

Your health may be rather sensitive now. You are particularly susceptible to the effects of intoxicants and chemicals and should avoid consuming or being exposed to them for prolonged periods. Balance and moderation in your diet and health practices is called for. Fad diets, especially those which are very restrictive, aren’t likely to do you any good, and they may even undermine your health.

On another level, your work may change significantly. Involvement with charities, health, or social services, or the helping professions may be involved. Caring for others may become an important aspect of your job.

Transiting Neptune in 7th house

At this time you are apt to see others through rose-colored spectacles. You tend to idealize someone and to believe the best about them, and then later be disillusioned when you begin to see their true colors. You see only what you want to see right now. Try to be extremely cautious when entering into legal agreements, a business partnership, or marriage at this time, for you have a strong inclination toward self-deception and gullibility regarding other people. If you have any doubts at all, proceed very carefully. Sugar-coating, ignoring, or trying to escape from real problems in a relationship will be very counterproductive.

Transiting Neptune in 8th house

A pronounced interest in death and the afterlife, mysticism, the soul, and the hidden or mysterious aspects of life may emerge quite strongly, and profound changes in your understanding and attitudes will be the result.

On another level entirely, confusion over legal transactions, joint business ventures, or property held in common with others is quite possible now, so be very careful and scrupulous about any such matters at this time.

Transiting Neptune in 9th house

At this time, your search for spiritual truth and wisdom may impel you to journey to a sacred place, to seek a Teacher or Guide, or to take up a religion or new philosophy. While there is likely to be much of value in this process, you are less discriminating and more gullible in regard to these matters. And if you are not religiously inclined, foreign cultures and exotic lands and customs may enchant you at this time.

Transiting Neptune in 10th house

Uncertainty about your life direction, a sense of aimlessness, or a need to find some larger purpose or cause to devote yourself to characterizes this cycle. You may sacrifice some career aspirations or other important goals for a cherished ideal. Your own self-centered interests and personal glory no longer seem as important, but unless you have other interests and motivations, you may simply drift along. You are also more easily discouraged now than at other times, especially because you may be comparing yourself and your accomplishments to some very high ideals.

Transiting Neptune in 11th house

At this time your hopes for a better world emerge strongly and you’re inclined to join with others who share your ideals. You’re likely to get involved with service organizations, religious groups, or social or political movements that promote the betterment of conditions for everyone.

On the negative side, you may be attracted to people who are dishonest, underhanded, and not what they seem to be at first. You may feel strongly influenced by peer pressure and the pull of a group of friends, without clearly thinking things through for yourself.

Transiting Neptune in 12th house

This is an excellent time for developing your intuitive or psychic faculties, latent artistic or healing gifts, and your interest in the inner world of your imagination, dreams, and fantasies.

Cultivating a spiritual life is important to you now and meditation, yoga, and the like have strong appeal. Unless you have some connection to the spiritual dimension, you are likely to feel rather empty or strangely unfulfilled.

Transiting Pluto in 1st house

This marks a period of profound personal transformation. Everything from your outward appearance to your deepest inner feelings about yourself are apt to change during this cycle. Inner resources and aspects of yourself which were previously hidden and which you probably never even suspected where there will begin to emerge. Other aspects of yourself and your life will be eliminated or radically changed. In some ways this can be a difficult time in that you cannot hide from yourself or your problems. You are forced to deal with whatever is deep inside and to bring it into the light of day. You will not be able to live on a light, superficial level. However, new power and confidence in your ability to meet the world will result if you do not resist the process.

Transiting Pluto in 2nd house

Your attitude towards money, possessions, and material security will undergo profound changes during this cycle and you tend to go to extremes. Intense material ambition or complete asceticism and denial of material wants and needs are not uncommon. Forces beyond your control may drastically alter your economic situation, for better or worse, and a deep examination of your true values will be the result.

Transiting Pluto in 3rd house

During this period you think with greater depth and penetration about everything than you did before, and you begin questioning things you once took for granted. This is an excellent time to begin an intensive course of study or research, especially in areas where uncovering the mysterious or hidden workings of something is involved. This could be anything from depth psychology, where the deeper layers of the psyche are investigated to scientific research into the mysteries of the physical universe.

Also at this time, the quality of your communication changes. In your conversations you cannot seem to avoid talking about touchy subjects, things others might have preferred to be left unsaid. Because you tend to drive right to the underlying issues and don’t engage in the usual light social conversation, others are uncomfortable with you at times.

Transiting Pluto in 4th house

This is a time of deep psychological purging and release. Unresolved issues from the past, buried feelings, and any problems stemming from experiences in childhood will emerge and need to be dealt with. A death and grieving process associated with letting go of the past often accompanies this time in your life. Your relationship with your parents and your personal or domestic life will all undergo a major transformation as well. Unavoidable circumstances involving your home may force you to either move or make radical revisions in your dwelling place.

Transiting Pluto in 5th house

Your creative drive is very powerful at this time and it may be expressed as an obsessive desire to have children or an irrevocable decision not to have them in order to wholeheartedly pursue some other creative endeavor. If you already have children, your relationship with them will intensify. You can’t control everything that happens to your children or everything they do, and this fact is likely to be driven home to you now.

Love affairs at this time will have a very intense feeling of fatefulness and depth and will have a transformative effect upon you. Your need to be creative and to express yourself emerges very strongly now. You may come to see artistic expression in some form as a tool for deep personal healing and transformation.

Transiting Pluto in 6th house

A tendency to be obsessive about getting a job done and to drive yourself and to overwork to the point of exhaustion or even physical breakdown is quite possible now, particularly if you are a very conscientious and responsible person. You take your sense of duty to extremes. The effects of accumulated stress may result in a health crisis during this period.

Positively, if you dedicate yourself to rebuilding your health, you can experience a complete regeneration. Elimination of debilitating habits, such as smoking, poor diet, and so on is likely to be a part of this process. You may be obsessively self-analytical and self-critical now also, as your entire personality is undergoing a refining process at this time.

Transiting Pluto in 7th house

You are likely to have intense, fateful encounters at this time and the people who come into your life will have a profound effect on you for good or ill. A marriage or business partnership that begins now (particularly at the beginning of this cycle) is likely to have a “hidden agenda”, namely to show you aspects of yourself which you deny or are unaware of. Power and control may come to be a major issue in your relationships. A crisis in or death of a relationship is also very possible now. If you are already married, your marriage could go through a period of breakdown followed by a resurrection of the relationship in a different form, one that suits who you both are now.

Gaining deep self-knowledge through relating to others is the theme of this time period.

Transiting Pluto in 8th house

Death, rebirth, and psychological purging are the themes of this cycle. You may have to confront your feelings about death and your own mortality more directly than ever before, possibly due to the death of someone close to you. You will be unable to live lightly on the surface of life. The root causes, the underlying or hidden reasons for things and the mysteries of life and death concern you greatly now.

On a concrete level, circumstances beyond your control may radically alter your economic situation, especially any money, property, or other holdings you own in common with someone else.

Transiting Pluto in 9th house

A metamorphosis in your understanding and philosophy of life, your beliefs, and your faith is the theme of this cycle. A critical test of your faith and an in-depth examination of your basic assumptions about the nature and meaning of life are on the agenda. Any superficial, poorly thought out, or immature beliefs and attitudes will be eliminated in the process.

You may become fanatical about a cause or belief now. The crusader or zealot in you comes to the surface, and you can become rather one-sided and extreme in your pursuit of truth.

Transiting Pluto in 10th house

At this time deep, inner, and only partially understood drives or compulsions motivate you to change the direction and course that you will follow from now on. There may also be an element of “fate” or outside circumstances beyond your control which impels you along very different lines than you might have consciously chosen.

Tremendous success or overwhelming failure in your career or your long-range goals for your life are quite possible now. You want to make your mark on the world but you should beware of being ruthless, unscrupulous, or overly dominating on your way to your goal, because such qualities may well mean your demise (metaphorically speaking).

Transiting Pluto in 11th house

Your friends, associates, and social circle are likely to change now, as you seek out more intense, meaningful encounters. Joining support groups for personal change, psychological growth, or spiritual development may provide you with the powerful group experience you need now. Also, groups or organizations focused on societal reform can strongly appeal to you.

Transiting Pluto in 12th house

During this period, you will confront aspects of yourself that you usually keep secret or that you have been unaware even existed. Buried feelings and hidden psychic garbage may begin to emerge and it’s time to eliminate these forces which have been influencing or sabotaging you without your realizing it. This is an excellent time to do an in-depth study of your dreams or enter psychotherapy. Hypnosis or other methods which tap into the deeper layers of your mind are especially fruitful now.
