The Sun whirls through your 4th house this month bringing focus on home, real estate, and home-based ventures.

The desire to spruce up or organize home may be strong at this time. This is an amazing time for researching design, building, decorating, etc. projects AND the first half of the month is also a great time to initiate, commit to, and carry through expensive or hard to change updates. This month could be great for clarity and forward movement on projects that you have been planning and new ideas.

This is also a fantastic month for cozying up at home. A fun project at this time is to do some Feng Shui treatments to your home. Deep cleaning, clearing clutter, and reorganizing is also in great alignment now.

Since the Sun lighting up your 4th house also means your family sector is lit up, if you are traveling this month, it is likely be to visit family or to a place that was or feels like ‘home’ or you may have family come visit you.

Family fun could enter center stage.  Equally as likely could be family drama.  Tread lightly on trigger topics with family and feel into doing work to dissolve your own triggers.

The 4th house is also the sector of childhood psychology, so things that happened as a child that are affecting your current situation (like patterns in relationship or elsewhere, that recreate circumstances that made you feel the same way you did when you were a child).  The Sun in this position can light up things that are right and can also make more clear things that need improvement.  If important actions have to be made working on the inner planes, there is much support at this time. If you feel ready to stop the patterns that have been holding you back, you can find great resources and make great headway now.  Inner work is awesome at any time this month.

Diving deep into research about your ancestry, genetic testing, and anything else related to the past and your family carries great support now.

If you have real estate investments or are wanting to sell or buy a home, this month will likely bring much activity in this sector.  Big news in these departments could come in now.  The first half or so of the month is great for negotiating and committing to agreements.  There is much energy for focusing on necessary contractual details for deals big and small. In the second half of the month, the possibility for confusion around details and agreements is more likely, as well as things being called into question or not working out.  Pay extra attention at this time and do more due diligence when making a purchase.  Flexibility and short-term arrangements could be better favored in the second half of the month.

The window clear from personal planet retrogrades and their shadow periods stretches through October 12.  Until around that time the energy is open for big launches, major decisions, planning, and other big pushes forward but do note if what you are bringing out doesn’t feel quite ready, it may be better to wait until the next open window that opens again December 9, 2019 through February 2, 2020.  The rest of 2020 after that is mostly 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 – this is why the time until October 12, 2019 is so important over the scheme of the rest of 2019 and all of 2020 – it is a great launching point for important/long-term ventures.


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.
