Lunar Return for: Spokane, Washington 47 N 39 32 117 W 25 30

LUNAR RETURN DATE: December 4, 2018 at 3:14:29 PM

Zodiac Signs on the Ascendant and MC, and the Ascendant Ruler

The zodiac signs on the Ascendant and MC, and the house position of the Ascendant ruler at the time of the Lunar return are described below. Your social and career opportunities for the coming month are influenced by these signs and house placement.

Lunar Return Ascendant Gemini :


    You will need to have many ideas going at the same time this month. The only problem is determining what stage your projects are in, what pile you put them in, or what day it is. Otherwise you are sharp as a tack. Your mind is quick, alive, alert and inquisitive. You have the ability to absorb and learn very rapidly, but you get bored just as easily. The mind can become so scattered at times that you may forget where you are, or why. As long as anyone can keep your mind stimulated for more than an hour or so, they will have your complete although somewhat divided attention. People who are serious about life may not understand or appreciate your carefree nature, especially when you are.

    You possess a wonderful sense of humor and make a fascinating conversationalist. Do you feel that there are two separate entities here battling for domination? Do you talk with your hands?  Can you do several things at once, at the same time?? You will notice yourself doing more of that this month! Marriage will be more difficult for you now, as your partners may need more passion and emotional personal attention than you are interested in giving. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, which means you are likely to be extremely talkative. You may find that there is more of an interest in teaching, writing, research, artistic endeavors and design, or negatively speaking can become a con artist. Health wise, your Lungs and Hands are your vulnerable points this month, and respiratory difficulties and injuries to hands and fingers need to be guarded against.

    Your approach to people and situations stems from the mental plane, and any decisions in your life about love, domestic matters, business or social situations will be met with rational thought rather than emotional responses. You have childlike and flirtatious mannerisms and approach life with a vigorous attitude.

    If  you are not kept busy, your mind can turn to gossip or idle chit chat about meaningless issues, just to keep the brain box active. You only move at one speed which is about 80 miles an hour, while remaining constantly in motion due to an inner restlessness that drives everyone around you crazy. Nervous conditions fire up your emotions bringing verbal attacks on others. The typical Gemini will always have a gallon of coffee nearby along with an ashtray filled with cigarettes. Does this sound like  you?? Your key phrase in life should be “I Know What I Want,.. . I think?” Exercise and extra care in diet will help to sooth those nervous episodes that pop up. If you weren’t nervous before, this month will introduce you to it, big time! Look to the house where MERCURY is located to see where your thinking is apt to be at during this month.

            Ascendant is in Gemini, Gemini Decanate

    Ruled by the planet Mercury, you will be very restless. There will be strong ties to the family, and you may experience some real insecurities that seem to haunt you. You can also suffer from a changeable and a very moody nature. You will become very fluent in the art of talking and therein lies the lesson of this position. Learn to be still, and listen to the inner self that wants to speak to you. You are more observant, intellectual and powerful.

Ruler of Ascendant in 6th house

    With the Lunar Ascendant Ruler in the Lunar 6th house,  the things that you must do on a day-to-day basis, and matters of health will be very important. The 6th house represents the job you do, or daily occupations and things that you do to be of use and service for others.

Lunar Return MC Aquarius:

    Since this is the most “visible” part of the Lunar chart, it represents how you are actually seen in the world by others. It represents your more outward or public face and where you are likely to encounter success, and your reputation in the world. Your goals will exhibit a positive kind of temperament although somewhat uncertain about matters with sudden urges. You will be intuitive with above average intelligence and can organizing almost anything. Intelligence in a cool, calm and collected way that allows no room for feelings. Spiritual matters are much more important than material ones for you this month. Very rebellious spirit looking for adventure pretty much describe your life.

    With Aquarius on the Midheaven this month, you will attract attention to yourself naturally, either through criminal activities to humanitarian efforts, on the other hand you may make a dramatic change of career or it may take unexpected and sudden turns this month. This change will have to do with something very unusual, perhaps in medicine, science, computers, communications, fund raising or humanitarian organizations.

    You are always looking forward to the future and how life will progress. Change, progress and innovative methods in human development keep you strongly attuned to causes or social betterment. You are an idealist when it comes to any kind of social unfairness, human rights or uniformity.

    There are times in your life when you will forego your own needs in favor of the needs of others, and this is it. Your beliefs are unchangeable once an opinion is formed and you keep up to date in the latest developments. You will enjoy active participation in groups or community affairs this month.

    You are friendly but keep an impersonal distance from others. Your acquaintances number many, but you can count your real friends usually on one hand. As a friend you are detached and impartial, because of your rational responses to your environment, you keep your emotions close to you and reveal them only to those who warrant it. Your independence keeps you from being overpowered or dominated by others. Marriage, relationships and tending to children are far from being customary and probably will lean to what would shock most people.

Zodiac Signs on the Other House Cusps

The zodiac signs on the other house cusps affect your attitude to many areas of your life, and have a significant impact on what kinds of opportunities and challenges will present themselves in the coming month.

Gemini on 2nd cusp:

     The influence of Gemini on your second house of money puts a greater importance on using the mind on material matters and  making money. Since Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini, and rules what you think about, finances, making money and possessions are at the top of your list. Since Gemini also rules duality, you can expect to be working more than one job to support your financial and material needs. Sources of making money will probably come through efforts using the mind and not the hands. Look to the house where Mercury is located for additional insights as to how or where you will put this effort.

Cancer on 3rd cusp:

     With Cancer on the cusp of the third house of communication and learning, you will be very sensitive and compassionate to people in your environment. You instinctively know what other people need especially in your immediate environment. This position of Cancer and the Moon makes for an excellent memory and recalling details. Any slights, outbursts and hurt feelings will be remembered as well. Discussions will take place on an emotional level rather than intellectual, perhaps with rapid changes in mood as well. There will also be more discussions with, and about, brothers and sisters who you are apt to be very close with. Friends, family members and neighbors can also figure into your close knit family of communications as well. Look to the house position of the Moon, to see where your interests can be found.

Leo on 4th cusp:

     With Leo on the fourth house of the home, family, roots, real estate, property and security,  you will put much pride into your home, family life and family. The home is a place where you can entertain in grand style, a show place for all of your acquisitions. The only problem with Leo on the fourth is that someone is going to have to be in charge, and who will make the decisions for the family, who will that be? Look to the house where the Sun is located to see where your home security can be found.

Virgo on 5th cusp:

    You have Virgo on the fifth house of Children, recreation, romance, creativity, artistic abilities, hobbies, writing books (creatively), speculation and investments. You will have a difficult time in the romance department, because Virgo here is so critical of everything it touches. Try mental companionship or a dog, someone who has a myriad of interests and doesn’t mind talking about them, endlessly! Relationships will come together after a great deal of scrutiny, and the idea of courtship and the dating process probably turns you into jello, as you find it yucky to begin with. Virgo is not a strong nurturing sign (on a one on one level), so caring for each other and children will be less than fortunate, because you don’t understand emotional needs, only intellectual ones. When you are going out to socialize, all plans and details must be worked out before you get into the car. Look to the house where Mercury is located to see where you might find your recreation and romance potential.

Libra on 6th cusp:

     You have Libra on the cusp of the sixth house of Work, Work environment, responsibilities, health, work and service for others, relationships with employees and co-workers, and your interest in physical fitness. You must have harmony and cooperation in everything you do. Unhappy work conditions breed unhappy conditions within your life. Try to work together in a situation where you can look at both sides of a problem and come up with fair solutions, such as a mediator or arbitrator. Problems are going to arise within your diet, because you have a love for sweets and rich food which will be too harsh on your sensitive systems. Couple this with a dislike for any kind of exercise, and a bit of laziness, and life becomes stagnant and congested. Look to the house where Venus is located to see where you might find work or service to others.

Sagittarius on 7th cusp:

     Relationships, partnerships, marriage, people you have close associations with, cooperation or lack of, contracts, and legal matters are all part of the seventh house, with Sagittarius located here. Since Sagittarius is primarily a freedom loving sign, you may not get involved in committed relationships here as Sagittarius hates to be tied down. Should you marry, you will need a great deal of freedom and flexibility to keep the relationship going. Look to the house that contains Sagittarius to see how you will deal with partnerships.

Sagittarius on 8th cusp:

    The eighth house deals with joint resources. Possessions that are not earned directly by you, but obtained through the relationship, wills, or pensions. It also has to do with money belonging to others such as taxes, corporate money, insurance, and the stock market. The eighth house also relates to the mysteries of life and sex. Sagittarius will have an influence on the above matters by bringing an extra air of good luck and good fortune in business, money and financial investments. Jupiter promises prosperity and abundance for you now. Look to see which house Jupiter is located in, to see where your joint money can be found.

Capricorn on 9th cusp:

    The ninth house is the house of long range goals and long distance travel. Religion, philosophy and higher education are ninth house matters. With Capricorn ruling the ninth house, you will be conservative in thought and ideas. Travel is not high on your list, and you may actually avoid it unless totally necessary, as in business matters. With Saturn being the ruler here, you will take your duties in religion, philosophy, law and education very seriously, and you will not take your responsibilities lightly. Look to the house where Saturn is located to see where your interests in higher aspirations can be found.

Pisces on 11th cusp:

     The eleventh house has domain over achievement of goals and objectives, and hopes and wishes. Humanitarian efforts, clubs, groups, associations, sharing ideals are also associated with the eleventh house. People that support your efforts, friends and connections to the outside world can be found in this house. With Pisces located in the eleventh house, the focus turns to strong bonds between friends, expecting them to be perfect, when in fact they may let you down because of their imperfections. You will out of your way and then some for a friend in need, but expecting the same from others can be a major disappointment. You are very sensitive to hurt feelings, and extremely generous to everyone. Look to the house where Neptune is located to see where you might find your friends, associations and group involvements and interests.

Aries on 12th cusp:

     The twelfth house rules the subconscious mind, problems arising from unseen causes, and limitations in our lives. This house has rulership over behind the scenes activities, emotional problems, secrets, deceptions, problems to overcome, the side of ourselves away from public view, where the soul can step back and take a look at the world around us. The twelfth house also has rulership over prisons, hospitals, and other institutions that would remove you from society. Aries energy on the twelfth house indicates that you will be very assertive and aggressive, showing an easygoing demeanor to the public, but very intense at heart. This energy can remain repressed, as you will be slow to anger and can tolerate a lot of abuse. Look to the house where Mars is located to find that area in which you retire from public view.

The Sun

The placement of the Sun in the Lunar return chart is very important and affects almost every area of your life!

Lunar Return Sun in 7th house:

    The Lunar Sun is now in your 7th house. But what does the  position of the Lunar Sun mean to you and how will it affect your life this month?

    One to one relationships, friends and agreements, functioning as a unit rather than as an individual, romance with commitment, consultations with doctors, lawyers or any experts are highlighted this month. This is an important time for working with others and not against them, just make sure you make an equal contribution to whatever you work on, including business and marriage. Look at the aspects to the Lunar Sun this month to see what you can accomplish.

Sun square Mars:

    Avoid crowds and irritating people this month because tempers will be hotter than normal and impulsive and intense actions as well as some aggressive attitudes will be in evidence.  You are likely to have more Aries/Scorpio contacts at this time, which can be combative or lead to arguments if taken too far.

    You are just looking for a fight this month, but are you prepared to pay the price for your quarrelsome nature. If you are looking for a perfect time to separate from a loved one, this is it, and this will prove to be a difficult month for romance and gambling. You may have an illness or headache that develops this month to contend with. The Lunar Return Sun is always hot and when it reaches Mars (ruler of the head and house where it is in the natal chart) it makes it hotter and natural temperatures and tempers rise.

Sun conjunction Jupiter:

    Considerable financial improvements surround you this month. An interest can be taken in the happiness and well being of others this month. If you are looking for the time to ask favors from superiors or those in authority, this month is the time to do so. It is also a favorable time for applying to schools of higher knowledge. Someone can become pregnant this month, or you may hear of  the birth of a child. Be careful, because it is easy to put on weight under this month, since Jupiter just loves to expand the old waist line. This is also a good time to start a vacation where long distances are concerned. Lotteries can bring in a dollar or two this month and because Jupiter rules larger amounts of money, lucky breaks are possible! It is possible that at this time there will be more contacts with Sagittarians or people with those qualities.

    This is a time of popularity, and favors legal matters that may have been pending up until this month with positive results.

Sun sesquiquadrate Uranus:

    Freedom is needed, sought and desired at all costs this month, especially from circumstances that have you tied down or restricted in some way. Sudden romances can begin this month and end just as quickly, so don’t expect anything long term from it. This is an unfavorable time for any group activities. Contacts this month are likely to be with Aquarius people, or people who have those qualities, but not likely to be very harmonious.

    This can be a time of electrical fires, so be more aware of the hazards in your surroundings. Murphy’s Law is in full effect this month, so if it can go wrong it will, this month! Hold on to something and prepare for a shock in your life! This is not a good time for private negotiations because disappointments of the major kind are to be expected.

    You will experience difficulties in expressing yourself and that is hard to do with your foot in your mouth. Separations from others is possible this month because either of you or both need your own space. You will have the advice potential of a blind man, you won’t see it, or take it.

Sun square Neptune:

    Let the buyer be very aware! There is a very powerful potential for misunderstandings and deceptions present with this month. The main objective this month is not to be taken advantage of. If you are in a scandalous situation, DUCK, as the bottom may fall out this month. Contacts this month will include more Pisces personalities than normal, and will not be harmonious.

    I understand it is difficult to believe but people may lie to you or deceive you for their own gain but it is nevertheless true. Avoid escapism through sexual outlets, drugs, alcohol (adverse effects) and gambling which will leave you broke. Love affairs entered into this month are UNREALISTIC.

    Make sure windows and doors are locked tight to keep unwanted nastiness out! This is a low energy physical cycle, so include more rest time. Watch your diet and eat more natural foods to keep your inner workings in proper working order. Get rich schemes must not be attempted because you are vulnerable to deception. Pregnancies can arise this month that are unwanted and must be dealt with. Any judgments made this month will be incorrect.

Sun sesquiquadrate Node:

    Don’t expect communications to be easy with the rest of the world this month. A withdrawal from social activities can be expected. Problems with the nervous system can develop and physical exercise may be the key to relieving the tension.

    Relationships between men and women will not do well and creative endeavors should be left alone, for a more fortunate time. You may want to be a leader, but the timing is very wrong.

The Moon

The placement of the Moon in the Lunar return chart affects emotions, moods, domestic affairs and relationships with women during the coming month.

Lunar Return Moon in 6th house:

    The Lunar Moon is now in your 6th house. The Lunar Moon rules your emotional needs and the specific houses show where your needs will lie and be met for the next month.

    The sixth house is the house of work and cannot express the emotional side of our nature, and feelings will get put on the side to accomplish the job at hand. The work place can become boring or tiring, thinking of places we would rather be or actually going there instead. Stress is associated with this placement because of circumstances surrounding coworkers or the boss. Health matters will be more of a concern and aches and pains can be exaggerated out of proportion. Not that they aren’t real, but our senses are more acute. Remember, worrying about ailments can make you sick! Hobbies and cleaning is a productive way of handling this placement. If the Lunar Moon makes any hard aspects while in the 6th house, there can be some confrontations with female co-workers, nervousness or ill health caused by emotional problems.

Moon trine Mars:

    You will draw strong and courageous people to you and you will be attracted to them too. Feelings are wonderful and in harmony with your surroundings. Domestic chores will go quickly and easily.

Moon trine Neptune:

    Charitable and spiritual approaches to others will enhance your life this month. This is a wonderful time for developing or using your ESP and you may experience some heavy duty dreams, see some odd weather conditions, be possessed by sexual vibes that are strong, or feel some increased impressions about your environment. You will be very sympathetic and compassionate to your fellow man and your perceptions and inner visions will be on target. Avoid negative people so you can get the full effect of this positive energy.


The placement of Mercury in the Lunar return chart affects communication, and your ability to learn and express yourself during the coming month.

Lunar Return Mercury in 6th house:

    Mercury is in your 6th house, and indicates areas of interests in your life this month, as well as health matters or where your thoughts are likely to be focused.

    A wonderful month for mental work but a difficult month for criticism both to and from others. Expect a fragile nervous system and a bout of anxiety. Health and hygiene concerns are highlighted, and new diets can start now and be effective. If Mercury makes a harsh aspect while in the 6th house there can be concerns over health matters with family, neighbors or associates. Nerves can become frazzled or an illness can take place as well as probable interference’s in communications with co-workers or the boss. Be on guard for hazards around the workplace that may affect your health, or taking on of additional duties that stresses you causing an illness.

Mercury Quincunx Uranus:

    Trying to reach people this month may be an exercise in futility, or increases in communications with verbal confrontations that can get out of control or get carried away due to your own impatience. Hasty words or intolerance of others over apparent stupidity on someone’s part, of which you are partially to blame. This will not be a dull time for you, as sudden events can occur that increase your workload and appointments dramatically as well, leaving you scattering to tie up all of the loose ends or do some quick reorganizing of priorities.

    Disappointments are to be expected and quite suddenly and the people you deal with either personally or in business will prove to be unreliable. This is an unfavorable time to make any decisions about money, whether it is joint financial ventures, insurance, investment, taxes or corporate funds.

    Plans will have a tendency to go haywire now, and legal technicalities can prove upsetting and costly. Don’t rush projects, let them go along at their own pace. Be careful going up or down anything that can cause you injury. URANUS has a lot to do with Explosions or electrical problems, or problems that arise without warning. Remember that if you make a promise to someone, keep it!

Mercury trine Node:

    Communications increase with harmonious results this month. This is also a favorable time for public relations, advertising, short trips and contacts with the general public and it is also a very sociable time for the exchange of ideas. You have a good grasp of any situation at hand and your judgment is sound, so use it for any form of the written or oral word. Joint plans and the exchange of ideas will prosper, and the same goes for any intellectual pursuits, social or business communications.

Mercury opposition Asc.:

    Problems in communication can arise this month and disagreements in partnerships whether business, marriage or with the public in general will be in evidence. Every time you try to say something intelligent, it will come out garbled and misunderstood, as people will stand there with strange looks on their faces trying to figure out what the heck you are talking about. Your judgment in all matters will be incorrect and even if you have all of the facts before you when forming an opinion, it will be the wrong decision. Printed material, letters or books can be the source of disagreement with family, or partners.

    Agreements will not be reached in business arrangements or in business matters. Communication that arrives is unfavorable for what you are looking for to come to a successful conclusion.

    Misunderstandings will be very easy to find, so double check what you say preferably before you say it. Go out of your way to make sure that others understand you. Transportation difficulties can easily arise just when you are late for work or on time for work.


The placement of Venus in the Lunar return chart affects romance and friendship over the coming month.

Lunar Return Venus in 6th house:

    Venus is in your 6th house now. Venus is the Goddess of  love and where you might find it and money matters and how you will handle it or what you might spend money on.

    This is a very poor month for the planet of love. All it wants to do is work, and overdoing it at that. Love relationships will become very difficult with Venus in this house. A good position for Venus for money and the job, but stay away from sweets, alcohol or drugs. Favors can be granted if you ask for them this month. The planet of Love is brought down to practical levels. If Venus is harshly aspected while in the 6th house, there can be a lack of interest in working and an increase of rich foods that are no good for you.

Venus opposition Uranus:

    Vacation plans can go right out the window this month and sudden and upsetting circumstances can bring separations from loved ones. Contracts and agreements can easily be broken, or you can be attracted to weird things in life, although they may not be necessarily good for you. Love adventures that start this month are likely to end as soon as the month ends. Don’t try to convince people to make changes, they might not react too well to it.

    Relationships will be very disruptive as some moody characteristics can emerge. Repressed emotions, unfaithfulness, bohemian attitudes, a lack of direction and impulse spending are effects of this month. This is an unfavorable time for trying out new ideas or products. Avoid any risks in love and friendships, so learn to take your time in relationships, don’t get carried away.

Venus square Node:

    This month will present you with a very disagreeable nature and a desire for very showy and gaudy things. Sexual encounters are likely to be very unsatisfactory because of  physical problems.

Venus Quincunx Asc.:

    This is an unfavorable time for dealings with the female sex and money can be wasted on useless types of things. You may be feeling rather lazy and not want to do much of anything, but the quality of your job will surely suffer from lazy attitudes. The real negative side of this aspect is that you might be a bit unwilling to voice complaints, even when you should.

Venus square MC:

    Socialize, don’t work this month! Express love to someone new or old, what have you got to lose? This month is great for the giving or receiving of affection, just don’t demand anything from others, instead use kids gloves and charm to win the month. This is a difficult time for family, finances and profession. Chances are that if finances go poorly, it was your own fault and undoing that brought you to this point and getting organized will be difficult to do.


The placement of Mars in the Lunar return chart affects your drive, ambition, and vitality during the coming month.

Lunar Return Mars in 11th house:

    Mars is in your 11th house this month. Mars is the planet of intense activity and the house it occupies by placement shows where that activity will take place. Mars is aggressive and can be quite selfish in its needs and desires, so be careful how you utilize this tremendous energy.

    The pursuit of goals, activities with groups of people, and efforts requiring team efforts are highlighted. A productive and physically active time when humanitarian goals will prosper. Tolerances for old friends will be very low and resentments can occur if Mars forms harsh aspects, friends may take unnecessary and dangerous risks and in extreme instances feel a need to reform the world by whatever means necessary.

Mars sextile Saturn:

    This is a good month to call in markers from others and projects backed by skill and durability are favored. Relationships that are encountered now will be exciting and dependable and this is a good time to take care of details that will make your project more presentable. This is a favorable time for responsible leadership and overcoming obstacles becomes easy with this supporting influence.

    Big changes and a permanent change of residence is possible this month. Practical considerations will be made over impulsive actions which should keep you out of trouble for a change.

    This is a  great aspect for craftsmanship where precision requirements have to be adhered to and also favors dealing with the government or governmental agencies. This month has a good influence on concentration and determination.

    Do any difficult tasks now, as it makes the whole process easier. Help comes to you when you need it most and focusing on a single goal and following it through to a successful conclusion is favored. Go after what you want now, you have the determination to bring it home.

Mars conjunction Neptune:

    Discrimination will be needed in all business practices and transactions to avoid dishonesty and difficult challenges face you for now. Prayer and meditation will be helpful, but spiritual confusion may develop. Avoid any form alcohol and drugs now as they can have an adverse effect on your body and you will notice that your energy will be lower than normal. Avoid caffeine and any stimulants that can upset your inner workings as well.

    You may find that others have been lying to you, but try not to hurt others because you are hurt, or because you have to hurt others first. This is an auspicious time for travel and adventures.

Mars Sesquiquadrate Node:

    Poor circumstances have arrived for business and professional endeavors and your behavior will be characterized as antisocial. There can be a dislike for social traditions and situations as well.


The placement of Jupiter in the Lunar return chart determines in what areas of your life you are likely to have opportunities for growth and expansion during the coming month.

Lunar Return Jupiter in 7th house:

    Jupiter is in your 7th house this month. Jupiter tends to expand your efforts and brings good fortune and positive change to the house it occupies.

    The formation of partnerships both business and marriage is favored. This is a good month for consulting doctors, lawyers, consultants and counselors. Favorable outcomes to court cases can arrive now and intimate relationships will prosper. This placement favors artists, lecturers, teachers and public relations. You decide to may marry someone older, with a completely different background than yours, or from a different country than yours. If Jupiter is in difficult aspect while in the 7th house, then relationships or partnerships can be taken for granted.

Jupiter SemiSquare Pluto:

    Whatever you do keep your motives, intentions and dealings with others honest, above board and on the right side of the law this month. You may burn bridges to your past in favor of the future and new beginnings. There will be an overwhelming need for power over others, just be careful that you don’t use people for your own purposes and then discard them. You will notice that you pick up some very bad eating habits as well. Jealousy is a danger with this placement.

    Reforming others comes under the gun of influences as well, so be careful of who you are trying to reform as well as your motives for doing so. Even though you aren’t the authority here, that won’t stop you from thinking you are. Expect very radical changes in thinking and attitudes which may have you a bit baffled as well as those around you. Other conflicts will be seen in litigation, joint finances, insurance, taxes and alimony. In your work practices, make sure to take care of all the little details and be especially careful not to overlook anything, because missing the finer points of any project can be your downfall.

Jupiter opposition Asc.:

    You can be somewhat GULLIBLE this month, accepting the words of others at face value. You will be unable to accurately read the intentions of people even though they “appear” to be well meaning. There will be a GREAT INCREASE IN YOUR SOCIAL life, as well as an attraction to alcohol and drugs. Any news that you hear about someone can be the result of “GOSSIP” and should be taken lightly until it can be verified, and not repeated anyway.

    Review your present relationship, chances are you have taken it for granted and modifications need to be made. Don’t make promises this month because they will be very difficult to keep for one reason or another, no matter how sincere your intentions are. Excessive debts and expenses can pop up on you and tie you down, and in the area of religion, education and cultural matters, you may find people at odds with your thoughts or beliefs.

    You have taken on way to much work this month, how are you going to do it all? Are you the type of person who has 10 jobs started and is going to finish them all but never does?  Be careful of friends whose only purpose is to use you for their own benefit and dump you afterwards. Hey, I never said it was going to be fair! You will meet people on a daily basis who will be in opposition to your great ideas. The problem is that you are trying to be someone special at a time when a more humble approach should be adhered to.

Jupiter sextile MC:

    This month will be a very successful time for your career and there will be a strong need to expand your social life, become more active in sports or include more travel, perhaps connected with your job.

    Business expansion is favored this month, and self confidence can be a real asset to you. Others may look to you as a leader for their causes.

    Financial gains are likely and you are not likely to squander it on useless items. This is an  excellent time for buying or improving your home and also favors politics, publishing, teaching, lecturing, religion and law. Support can come from people in authority or somehow connected with the government.


The placement of Saturn in the Lunar return chart determines where you will encounter obstacles, difficult lessons, and where discipline will be needed in your life during the coming month.

Lunar Return Saturn in 8th house:

    Saturn is in your 8th house this month. The purpose of the planet Saturn is to teach us and help us to mature in the houses associated with Saturn. The stronger we resist these changes, the stronger the effects will be felt until we submit to a more structured way of life.

    Bank loans and joint financial matters can suffer losses and other people may have the money that you desperately need but will not be willing to share it. The lesson here is values and knowing your limitations as money can be cut off from outside sources. If Saturn makes a difficult aspect when in the 8th house, taxes can be a problem, problems in joint finances and business.

Uranus, Neptune and Pluto

The placement of the 3 outer planets in the Lunar return chart indicates areas in your life that are likely to take surprising twists and turns, where idealism and illusion may enter your life, or where compulsive or extreme situations may arise in your life during the coming month.

Lunar Return Uranus in 12th house:

    Uranus is in your 12th house this month. Uranus is the planet that causes us to make changes of the sudden and electric kind in our lives with very little regard as to whether we want to or not.

    The hidden aspects of your life can pop up unexpectedly and people that are really your enemies can arise to be dealt with. Look into the unconscious motivations in all things. If Uranus makes a difficult aspect while in the 12th house, you may suddenly go into seclusion, enter the hospital, become involved with mental institutions in some way or face imprisonment.

Uranus SemiSquare Neptune:

    You will feel the need to “demand” more time by yourself this month and you can easily get very tired, so take more time for rest.

    It might be better to stay away from alcohol or drugs as they will have an adverse effect on you, whether they are prescription or experimental and any medication that you are taking this month may have to be reevaluated for effectiveness. Consider getting a second opinion before using any medication, or check different pharmacies for the best possible price as you can be easily ripped off.

    Keep an extra set of eyes in the back of your head when dealing with taxes, insurance or any money matters, as this month is notorious for fraudulent transactions

    Remember those friends who turned out not to be your friends?  Do you feel confused or disoriented? Well fear not, it is a side effect of this month. You may be put into circumstances you would rather not be under this influence, so try to keep the faith.

    Financial decisions made this month may have a deceptive ring to them and when this month ends, some of your money may disappear as well. The reason they call Neptune deceptive is because you can’t see it! This goes for money, taxes, insurance, groups of people and any form of escapism.

Uranus square Node:

    STRESS has entered your life this month, so use any means to get rid of it before it gets the best of you. You will not appreciate any sexual advances made towards you this month and any assistance that is offered by others will be refused.

    You may find that during this time matters of sexuality become less important to you and matters of pure intimacy without being sexually active become more important and necessary. You can also find that people can come to you for consolation and you can do so without the threat of sexual advancement on your part coming into play, instead enjoying people for their company.

    Upsetting circumstances arrive in group and individual relationships and freedom will cause setbacks. Pig headedness is a negative use of this energy and arguments are a positive outlet for this energy because it gets everything out on the open.

Uranus square MC:

    You will feel the need to rebel against people to make sure they understand that you want to be left alone. You need more freedom and because of this it will be very difficult to make commitments to others.

    You will experience clashes of wills with people in authority, in business relationships and political associations. Unpredictable business, professional and domestic occurrences can arise and your relationship with friends can change as they become annoying to you, whether they are your family or  associates. Unexpected conflicts are sure to arise that not only affect your working environment, but your domestic one as well.

    Rather than a voluntary change of residence, here is an involuntary change of residence, whether through your job, some kind of disaster or loss of lease. On the other hand, people may suddenly move into your home this month, which was not in the game plan.

    Each persons circumstances will be different with this month, but your need for “freedom” from domestic or working conditions will be challenged to some degree, especially in the retrograde. Has it always been easy for you to walk out of situations in the past? Well then this challenge may be in the form of working out circumstances in your life rather than turning and walking away from them one more time.

Lunar Return Neptune in 11th house:

    Neptune is in your 11th house this month. Neptune is the Grand Master of illusion, deception, imagination and inspiration, perhaps all at the same time. Psychic and intuitive aspects can emerge from our personalities either consciously or subconsciously and new concepts that are somewhat poetic, compassionate and humanitarian can easily arise. As long as we remain realistic in our approach to life, we shouldn’t encounter too many lessons though. Expect Neptune to put you through many changes of perceptions and your views or reality will be altered several times as well.

    This is a dangerous position for getting involved with groups and association as you can be brainwashed into thinking they are something they are not, so use extreme caution. Friends may prove to be deceptive or tiring and it will be very easy to get wrapped up in cult groups. If Neptune makes a difficult aspect while in the 11th house, then you can be deceived by your friends or groups of people, organizations or charities. You have the wonderful ability of choosing the “WRONG PEOPLE” to be friends with.

Neptune Sesquiquadrate Node:

    There will be a strong urge to retreat from people who require your help and an avoidance of people that you do not want to meet. If you are experiencing times of difficulty, you will find the need to shun contact with others, if only to avoid a confrontation.

    Tension, bad luck and disappointments can arrive in your life this month, but do not fear, because it will soon be gone!

Lunar Return Pluto in 9th house:

    Pluto is in your 9th house this month. Pluto is the master of digging down beneath the surface of who you are and bring some very powerful yet subtle changes into your life. Pluto is where your OBSESSIONS can be found this month.

    Religious, philosophic and educational matters will have a profound effect on you this month, but be careful others do not try to manipulate you with their beliefs. If Pluto makes a difficult aspect while in the 9th house, then there can be dangers traveling to foreign countries, religious viewpoints that border on fanatical, or philosophic views can be undergo great change.

Natal 7th on lunar Asc:

    With your Natal 7th house on the Lunar Ascendant,  making compromises to others, and overlooking differences for the sake of  relationships can come into focus. Any difficulties in love and relationships are likely to surface to be dealt with. You are more than likely to be the initiator of  relationships now. Matters of marriage and divorce or  litigation are all part of this energy, and are sure to be an essential part of what is going on in some way.

Natal Asc in lunar 6th house:

     With your natal Ascendant now in the Lunar 6th house,  the things that you must do on a day-to-day basis, and matters of health will be very important. The 6th house represents  the job you do, or daily occupations and things that you do to be of use and service for others. Most importantly, it is where you as an individual fit this month.
