You have important business to complete this year prior to entering the next phase of your life's journey. Although the potential ahead has been growing by leaps and bounds, stabilizing Saturn's visit to your 3rd House of Communication that began in 2010 will come to a conclusion on Oct. 5, marking a major shift in the tides of your life. You probably had to make serious choices that restricted and focused your development when Saturn was in your sign from 2005 - 2007. Now there is a fork in the road you chose; you are at a crossroads and must face decisions that will have significant ramifications as you judge your own success and failure. The parts of your life that are not meeting your expectations need to be revamped or eliminated, for you are being called to concentrate your ambitions on what could be most productive through the coming years. There's no time to waste, for Saturn's entry into intense Scorpio and your 4th House of Foundations on Oct. 5 will require you to start building your base for the future rather than looking back to the past.
Be ready to embrace career opportunities that come your way, even if they take longer than you expect to manifest. The world is ready to acknowledge and reward your professional contributions now that prosperous Jupiter in materialist Taurus is visiting your 10th House of Public Life until June 11. But you must be persistent because energetic Mars is retrograde in your 2nd House of Self-Worth from Jan. 23 through April 13, obstructing your progress and possibly even fueling self-doubt. However, it's crucial to maintain a positive attitude during this phase so your efforts continue to bear fruit during propitious Jupiter's one-year stay in your 11th House of Goals, starting on June 11.
Throughout the entire year, your life continues to evolve in ways that you might not expect as irrepressible Uranus in enthusiastic Aries continues its seven-year sojourn through your 9th House of Higher Truth. You become increasingly aware of the high cost of freedom as the long-lasting square between Uranus and unrelenting Pluto heightens stress and the pressure for change. Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld, symbolizes all that is unknown and unconscious. Its powerful square to Uranus the Awakener shifts the tectonic plates of your mind to birth brilliant ideas and release sudden blasts of suppressed emotions. Pluto's transformational transit through your 6th House of Daily Routine lasts until 2023, yet the cataclysmic squares from Uranus that are exact on June 24 and Sept. 19 initiate a profound process that will ultimately force you to discard unhealthy habits and reinvent your life. This dynamic Uranus-Pluto square recurs five more times through 2015, so it's wise to pace yourself for the long haul rather than exhausting your reserves too soon.
