The Sun brings warmth and focus to your 6th house this month bringing your attention to order and organization.
Streamlining your schedule and improving time management are great areas of focus at this time. Working smarter instead of working harder will carry better outcomes now and strategizing ways to do this can be very fruitful at this time.
Notable occurrences at the office could come up and for both those who are self-employed and those in an office or other employment setting. Issues or opportunities with some link to the past are more likely now. New opportunities with no link to the past can also abound at this time.
Clearing clutter and bringing coherence to your outer and inner realms will be time well-supported at this time. Something fun you can do is play my “Ten Things” game. I created this to help me clear clutter. Every day for a certain amount of time I committed to in advance (1 week, 1 month, etc.) I would make the agreement with myself that I would just have to deal with 10 things that were sitting around out of place. What I found (as you may find) that once I got started (which seems to be the hardest part), I would go well past dealing with only 10 things as momentum was built from the minimum commitment. This is a great exercise when you feel unmotivated, overwhelmed, or are crazy busy 🙂
Speaking of ‘exercise’, the Sun is accentuating your house of exercise and other health regimens this month, too (also 6th house affairs). This energy will likely highlight exercise regimens, diets, practitioners, treatments, routines, etc.
New health issues or ones from the past may resurface now or become more obvious to give attention to. You may make some important health discoveries or find solutions at any time this month. This is a time when diagnostics and other things to get down into the details of your health, healing, and exercise and diet regimen come into the forefront. Note that some results that come in at this time may shift or need a second opinion.
The 6th house also rules pets and some other animals so you might find yourself focused in that area of life. A pet may need some attention at this time or you may have more time or interest in focusing attention to your furry or feathered ones.
Mercury goes retrograde October 31 – November 20 and its post-transit shadow period lasts until December 9, 2019. See my Mercury Retrograde Surthrival Video for more info about this transit. From December 9, 2019 through through February 2, 2020 is one of the best, most wide open launch periods until 2021. Big launches, major decisions, huge steps, important plans, are all perfect for this window. So take advantage of this window for ACTION and FORWARD MOVEMENT! The rest of 2020 as we move into February is more focused inward and backward because of the string of personal planet retrogrades (Venus, Mars, and 3 Mercury).
There will be a couple of open points amidst the retrograde wall, the last few days of March 2020 and first week or so of April 2020 and a few days towards the end of July 2020 represent an energetic ‘coming up for air’ so you can set your sights on these times for important things that can’t be implemented sooner. After that, it will be December 2020 before there is any wearing off of the retrograde focus, and even that month is completely covered in Mars post-retrograde shadow period.
Do keep in mind that retrogrades can be awesome for many things (see my blog Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades for ideas of great ways to use your energy from Oct 13 through December 9), but for the big, never been done, launches, clarity and big decisions, the times when the personal planets are in direct motion tend to be better for launching your ships of dreams.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Leo Horoscope is more relevant for you.
