Lucky Days: 3 – 22
Lucky Numbers: 26 - 49

in your house of the mind. This big cosmic event forces you to focus

or other obligations.

Lucky Numbers: 54 - 56
LEO (JUL 23-AUG 23): The powerful solar eclipse later this month
lands right in your star sign; this means you’re the poster child for
the kind of energetic influx that accompanies these alignments. Don’t
be frightened by the newfound sense of power that moves you forward.

spirit. No other sign does it better than the lion, so let your roar
spread wide and far.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23): The author Viktor Frankl wrote, “In her
creative work the artist is dependent on sources and resources deriving
from the spiritual unconscious.” The big solar eclipse in your house of

coincidences; make all of these your teacher.

Lucky Numbers: 29 - 45
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23): Your drive for peace and harmony reaches
a peak in late August during the powerful solar eclipse in your house

SCORPIO (OCT 24th-NOV 22nd): This quote from astrologer Antero
Alli says it best for you: “Respect tradition then make up your own.” A
potent eclipse in your house of reputation forces you to refashion the
way you are perceived by others. It’s time to demonstrate how keen your

by letting more of your personal passion out of the box.
Lucky Days: 20 – 27
Lucky Numbers: 18 – 47
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23rd-DEC 21st): Explore ways of thinking that
minimize control and optimize faith. This is the month when you
discover just how strong your sustained trust in a higher power really
is. Call this relationship whatever you like, but don’t doubt the
influx of inspiration and guidance it affords you. The big eclipse in
your house of higher mind sets you free in ways you’ve never before
dreamed possible. Enjoy the trip!
Lucky Days: 18 - 25

CAPRICORN (DEC 22nd-JAN 20th): August’s big solar eclipse sets
off your house of transformative power, and there is no force stronger
than love to change up the most entrenched or hopeless of situations.

what we love.” Make this your motto for the remainder of the year.
Domination isn’t necessary to win the prize that you desire right now.
Lucky Days: 19 - 23
Lucky Numbers: 28 – 45
AQUARIUS (JAN 21st-FEB 19th): Power struggles can easily turn
into a synergistic win-win for both individuals. Be sure to make an
effort this month to establish balance and blend forces rather than
polarize around differences. The potent solar eclipse in your house of
partnership intensifies this message ten-fold. Other people are mirrors
that reflect back qualities we might not even know we possess. This is
a month of revelations.
Lucky Days: 4 - 21
Lucky Numbers: 18 – 36
PISCES (FEB 20th-MAR 20th): Your house of health is super

discriminating about how you fuel your body (and your mind). Choose
only the finest of ingredients and reading material.
