The Sun sizzles through your sector of children and creativity this month. Activities, issues, and opportunities involving children, your own or others, or other creative endeavors, take center-stage this month. This is an amazing time to take an art class or cozy up with awesome art tools and go crazy. Hidden interests or talents may be revealed and these are more likely to be discovered if you try different things.
For parents or parents-to-be, learning more about parenting from experts is a wonderful area of focus always but especially this month. Unresolved issues involving children or having children are likely to come up this month. Definitely take seriously anything coming up in these areas as there is likely much to uncover now you can receive great help to find answers and solutions.
A child close to you may cross a major milestone at this time. This could also be a time of positive breakthroughs with children, wonderful flow and time spent, and amazing memories made.
Looking at life through the eyes of a child can help to bring fun into dreary routine. Something fun to try this month is to set up some child-led activities. Asking kids for ideas of fun things or thinking about what you did as a kid that you enjoyed can help you capture the magic of this placement of the Sun.
Hobbies, pleasure, and fun for the sake of itself are all in the sector being highlighted for you now. Fun and activities from previous times may roll back through into your experience.
This sector also specifically enhances the arenas of acting, modeling, fashion, dancing, singing (and any other performance arts), and athleticism.
This month could have creativity in the forefront and creative projects you feel are ready to be shown to the world but also there could be projects still going on behind the scenes or working that are not ready to be released yet. In general this is a FANTASTIC time to work in the back drop on projects, improving or otherwise revising offerings currently out, and bringing things back from the past to move along. starting around the second week of December it will be a FANTASTIC time to LAUNCH big projects! This month is a perfect time to put the finishing touches to prepare to birth your creative baby. If it is not quite time, this month could bring attention to the details that will bring your project at some point in the future.
Regarding romance, so there is an increased potential for some love sizzle 🙂 Purposely planning fun with your honey is a great way to use this energy. The energy also burns bright for new love potentials. This could be a great time for dating. People from the past may play an important role now but equally as likely, new prospects could come in.
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. 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 and first week or so of April and a few days towards the end of July 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.
