We leave for our new life in Bear River, Nova Scotia in a month. Our horoscopes for this month are quite prescient and speak to those changes. What follows is from Planet Waves written by Eric Francis.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) (Larry)
Conventional wisdom you might be reading in other horoscopes holds that Saturn transiting one’s 2nd house, which begins for you Sept. 2, brings challenges with money. Yet Saturn leaving Leo no doubt comes as a relief on all fronts. As for money, much of how Saturn manifests depends on how we meet those challenges. Saturn transiting any house talks about making reductions and improvements to efficiency — things you’re already good at. But it also talks about focusing your efforts on what matters most, and applying refinements to earn your living from your professional calling rather than some other way. Where Saturn is present, focusing on the architecture and form of the matter in question is helpful, and many have noted that money flows toward structure. Above all, this two-year transit is about deciding what’s most important to you. When you’re involved in what really matters, you will tend to feel good about yourself. If you ever get to a point where you don’t, ask yourself what you’re doing and why.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) (Flora)
You seem pulled in three directions. One feels like stern, cool discipline. Another feels like a creative or erotic risk you would never normally imagine taking. A third is “anywhere but here.” This third option is a good start, because the past, as a long-haul phenomenon, is something you know it’s time to break with. Yet you still seem to be wrestling with the perception that a passionate life is something you can plan and live in a structured way. The structure you need is an inner sense of focus; Saturn now making its way across your 5th solar house — the house of art, risks and passion — is here to remind you that you must be your own master. Planning the future is one thing, and it’s generally difficult. Knowing your priorities and what you are willing to do about them is another. Yet there is one factor on the horizon that you simply cannot plan for; all you can do is respond, and respond with both authority, and remembering your hard-earned sense of adventure.
