A Note from Susan Miller
I feel we all live in our heads so much of the time that when we are faced with a circumstance that forces us to acknowledge that we really do have a body to care for, it sometimes comes as a bit of shock. I suppose if you are an athlete and reading this, you are laughing at me. It’s true, as an astrologer and a writer, I spend most of my days thinking.
When I was wheeled to the outside of the operating room on the morning of June 12, wearing the special blue paper surgical gown and shower cap to cover my hair, it occurred to me that some things in life have to be faced straightforwardly, and gone through by ourselves without help. I feel these experiences make us stronger and also more compassionate of others.
Yet, then I thought about how lucky I was – so many of you, dear readers, said you would send a prayer for me when I posted on Twitter and Facebook that I was about to have an operation. You responded so warmly, far beyond my expectations, and it made my heart swell. Thank you so much.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
You seem to be gearing up for a major career move in December, as well as readying your professional strategy for an exciting 2019. The projects you are preparing now will be seen by others later. You seem to have become a little hermit lately, closeting yourself within and burning the midnight oil in anticipation of all that you will unveil later in the year. Your hard work will be worth the long hours you are putting in to your project now, dear Pisces. There is a big reason I say that.
Once you get to late November, your career will gently start to heat up. Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will move into Sagittarius on November 8 and light your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement. This will be the first time since November 2006-December 2007 and before that, since December 1994-December 1995. Those were brilliant years for your career if you reached for a big goal. You are coming up on another big chance to grab the golden career prize and working with the confidence you are about to become quite successful very soon. You are starting an entirely new career chapter, and you are so close to victory.
Also in November 15 through December 30, Mars, the energy planet, will move into Pisces for the first time in two years, and you will be the most favored sign to make happy, exciting headline news. Mars will make you assertive, and as you see, in July and August, Mars will be weak, but by December, Mars will be healthy and robust and ready to take you where you need to be in your industry. You are about to start a new cycle that will carry you two years or more, possibly forever, into the future, and it all looks very, very bright.
Mars, the planet that is about action, first went into Aquarius, the sign it is touring now, on May 16. This Red Planet’s job is to give you determination, courage, energy, and drive. This planet teaches how to win in any competitive situation by firing up your passion and ability to persevere through any obstacles. This planet will give you the confidence to resist taking “no” for an answer.
Mars in your twelfth house, where it is now, has been stimulating your imagination to a high degree, so take your dreams and ideas seriously. Capture your inspirations as they come to mind by writing them in a journal. I read something fascinating recently that I would like to share with you. According to the New York Times, April 30, 2018, by Suzanne Baruch Asherson, the part of the brain that rules cursive handwriting is linked to improved brain development in mastering thinking, language, and memory. Ms. Baruch-Asherson continued, writing, “Cursive handwriting stimulates the brain synapses and synchronicity between the left and right hemispheres areas that are not stimulated by typing or printing (by hand).” Uranus, planet of innovation, disruption, surprise, creativity and even genius, is now in your house of thinking, speaking, writing, translating, and commerce, along with other communication arts, so I thought this research may interest you.
