20 April – 20 May

Your actions are governed by your instincts during this period, you may be especially defensive and protective. You may work hard at making yourself feel more secure and you may be called upon to take charge on the home and family front. It’s a time to turn inner restlessness into fruitful contact with others. Heightened awareness of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus, is probable as well as a need for social security. The flowing, expressive, and spontaneous energy surrounding you attracts like-hearted people. Favorable Dates: May 1, 3, 10, 12, 19, 21. Favorable Colors: Yellow & White.


21 May – 20 June

It’s a great time to open up conversations with loved ones, as you are more rational when it comes to personal matters now. Your mind often wanders to domestic concerns, and issues surrounding your home, family, and personal past come to the forefront. Your personality is light-hearted and curious, and others might turn to you for advice. This is the time when you can most easily use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Favorable Dates: May 2, 3, 11, 12, 20, 21. Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue.

A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you’re attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is strong. This is an especially strong period for personal magnetism and close partnering. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now. You have good team spirit right now and you are more tactful and obliging with your co-workers.

23 July – 22 August

A blast of personal energy comes your way, and showing your leadership skills works for you now. You are at your most convincing, as others are accepting you at face value. Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It’s a great period for doing something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. Favorable Dates: May 2, 9, 11, 18, 20, 27. Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue.


23 August – 22 September

You are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence beyond its normal boundaries. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. Personal courage is with you, but you are also very grounded and realistic. A strong desire to make things happen is with you now. This is a strong period for friendships and group activities, as well as pleasant romantic surprises with a partner.

23 September – 22 October

You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself and your worth to others using money and possessions as the means to do so. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life, something philosophical or spiritual that you read or learn, or an adventure that takes you away from the mundane routines in your life. It is a time when intimacy and deep levels of sharing are heightened. Favorable Dates: May 7, 8, 16, 17, 25, 26. Favorable Colors: Yellow & White.

23 October – 21 November

It’s a great time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it. You might play with various ways to increase personal funds, resulting in more than one avenue for monetary gain. Avoid letting undue pressure from others pushing you into signing important papers that may create a serious financial commitment. You have a taste for the exotic now that can show up in many areas of your life–who you are attracted to, what you buy, the kind of art or entertainment you enjoy, and so forth. Favorable Dates: May 1, 3, 10, 12, 19, 21. Favorable Colors: Yellow & Red.


22 November -21 December

You might focus on ways to earn money in or from your home. Loyalty and sensitivity in your relationships are more important to you than typically. This is a calming influence–a time when simple pleasures most appeal. You want to have fun, and the demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Others notice and perhaps admire you for your pleasant and cheerful personality. Some of you may find this time an energy sapper, as they feel ignored or unnoticed. Favorable Dates: May 1, 4, 10, 13, 19, 22. Favorable Colors: Blue & Red.

Your mind is always active with new ideas for an increase of income during this cycle. Siblings may be a source of financial or material gain or loss now. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values. This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. Favorable Dates: May 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20. Favorable Colors: White & Purple.

20 January – 18 February

Creative projects can flourish with enlarged focus and redoubled efforts that somehow don’t tire you out. Time flies when you’re having fun and leaves you with more vigour than when you began. Your focus remains in this area of life, but caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate after 21st May. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with colleagues or bosses or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now. Favorable Dates: May 4, 7, 13, 16, 22, 25. Favorable Colors: Red & Green.


19 February – 20 March

This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Around the 16th, emotional issues surrounding creative projects, romance, or children captures your attention, but wait things out before jumping to any conclusions. If you are feeling good about yourself, and especially if you have taken advantage of the time for re-building of confidence you will fairly radiate during this expressive period. Favorable Dates: May 1, 5, 10, 14, 19, 23. Favorable Colors: White & Green.


21 March – 19 April

You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of the financial with social or public affairs. You are more socially ambitious than usual during this cycle. Attention is drawn to your professional manner or your personal relationships become more public. It could also be a time when much of your energy is channelled into private matters, or when you prefer that others not observe what you are doing. You are in the position to make an impression on others. You have presence and you project confidence. Favorable Dates: May 5, 7, 12, 16, 23, 25. Favorable Colors: Yellow & Grey.
