Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Happy birthday Aries! You may not think of yourself as a healer, but you can cultivate internal spiritual energy right now. Practice qigong, reiki, or some form of energy awareness. Put your hands near each other but not touching. Can you feel energy? Be patent and believe it’s there because it is! Send healing to your body, or even to your thoughts. Experiment with a friend to see if they feel what you’re sending out. This month’s eclipse empowers your spirituality, and also finances. Also, forgive hurts in love so you can open to new connections.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This month’s eclipse helps you free yourself from your own box! You can experiment with being different, goofy, fun, or radical. You can meet new friends who support you for being the “you” that you want to be, not whom you’ve always had to be. Meditate on healing your internal negative critic. Be aware of it as a voice that you can ignore, instead of “truth” you have to believe. Try a new hobby like a dance or art class.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You can release shame related to sloppy finances or debt. You can also heal issues around intimacy and sexuality. Meditate on being kinder to yourself. Say comforting things to yourself instead of being a “mean girl” to your inner wounded, scared self! This will be a revolutionary change that will give you a blast of physical energy if you’ve been struggling with lowered vitality or motivation. Try a five to ten-minute yoga practice each day. Short and sweet, but effective!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You can have breakthroughs at work after a time of struggle. Your efforts are recognized! A long-awaited bonus or raise can come through. It can be hard to make new friends, but with this month’s eclipse, please try! Also, bravely analyze your closest relationships for any type of abuse, no matter what type and no matter how subtle. Ask for help from professionals if needed so you can confront and set limits with boundary offenders.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
This month’s eclipse can bring exciting career breakthroughs! Work with the law of attraction and visualizations about prosperity and a dream job and it can all happen! You can also heal disappointments you’ve had around religion and spirituality, even if there has been trauma in those areas. You can feel your own Light within you and trust that guiding force! If there are relationship issues, don’t give in. Stand by your deepest needs and advocate for them. Leave if you have to because there are so many options for you!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Trust your gut. You can overanalyze your intuition and suck the inspiration out so you’re confused and deflated. This month’s eclipse helps you open to inspiration when it comes and to see it as a gift. Meditate to release internal criticism so you can honor your spiritual strengths! Health issues can shift by being consistent with stress reduction techniques, deep breathing, and rest. Listen to the opinions of others who love you and who see your sweetness.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You can have relationship breakthroughs! A new bond can start that shifts you in wonderful directions. You’ve learned to break co-dependent patterns so you’ll find healthy connections where your needs are met! Celebrate your victories and honor your boundaries. Ironically, you’ll be able to get closer to others with them in place. Meditate to forgive yourself for “lost time”. You can also get an unexpected bonus, raise or financial blessing!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Like Libras, relationship breakthroughs happen for you! You can have insights into childhood issues or past traumas that block you from fulfilling connections now. Meditate and make a commitment to persist with one small change or attitude. Create a “thought ladder” so a belief isn’t out of reach. Steep your mind in what you can see is possible. Step up to another “rung” of belief later. You can gradually progress toward more hopefulness without interference from habitual negative thoughts that keep you “safe”.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Meditation helps relationships tremendously. You often blurt things out and then regret it. Quiet reflection each day widens your perspective on the situation and helps you have better communication. You’ll also be able to stick with healthy, nourishing food choices. Insights also come about financial issues. Being a Sag is great since you’re eager, spontaneous, and adaptable. But cultivating discipline and discernment won’t make you boring!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
This month’s eclipse can bring an exciting new relationship, or heal stuck issues in a current one! Meditation gives insights about childhood huts/traumas that can subtly impact romantic bonds today. You can reframe these memories in a healthy way that frees and empowers you! Financially, doors can open for you to make a big purchase you’ve been saving and striving for. Also, work with affirmations that comfort and self-soothe. It might seem nerdy and “weak”, but healing your heart makes you strong and resilient!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Please release yourself from self judgment. As an Aquarian, you’re often ahead of the pack and therefore, outside of the group. But it’s vital to see the loyal people in your life who “get you”, admire you, and encourage you. Stay true to who you are and love your unique, cool self! Additionally, you can also have clarity around finances and also relationships. Change up your meditation routine and method for amazing insights!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
It’s always crucial to meditate on your boundaries. Feel worthy of having and maintaining them! Setting better limits with others allows for more intimacy and trust. Meditation also reveals your blind spots. Have you been in denial about either spending habits or the relationships to which you give the most time? Keep trusting your inner voice, even if those ideas will cause waves!
