Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Happy birthday Aquarius! It’s a great start to your birth year with so many planets being in your sign. Powerful, life-altering Pluto will be with you for more than two decades! It gives you transformational energy to accomplish your dreams, as well as to eradicate negative “issues” that interfere with your sense of fulfillment. On a much smaller, but still potent scale, Mars is in your sign until late March. Meditate on goals and take courageous steps toward their manifestation!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You’ll have very active dreams and meditations this month. You can feel old resentments being stirred up. Don’t resist, since it’s a healing process deep in your subconscious. Once every two years, Mars works to release suppressed rage and frustration. As a Pisces, you can repress a lot! Breathe deeply as emotions arise. You might even try shaking as a primal way to release stuck adrenaline and reset your nervous system. After, you’ll feel empowered and energized, as well as more able to trust yourself and others!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Meditate on meaningful projects you’d like to be involved in. Volunteering can inspire you, bring you radiant health, a peppy mood, and perhaps even a new relationship! Surprisingly, you’ll find you have more time and energy rather than less. Also, check in about the quality of your friendships. Make sure you’re receiving as much as you’re giving out. Watch for being subtly drained. Be with people who are on your level of positivity and empowerment!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You have tremendous career focus right now! What is it that truly calls to your heart? You can get promoted into a dream job! Or you can begin an endeavor that’s an intense calling and fills your life with meaning. Meditate and visualize yourself in that new capacity. You can inspire others at this time, too. You see people’s strengths, so don’t be shy about giving compliments. Your opinion has more impact and power than you realize!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Many planets are working to reinvigorate your spirituality. Try a new form of meditation. Using a mantra, or a comforting phrase helps to engage your mind. As a Gemini, you’re all about talking and thinking, so striving for “mental silence” will likely make you feel like a failure. Chanting and repetitive phrases are viable, ancient, and powerful methods for lulling your brain into peacefulness! You can also try walking or other movement-based styles. Your body and mind will relax. You’ll feel less stressed at work. You’ll have insights that solve personal issues too! If you can, try to travel or at least make travel plans.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Your capacity to heal from deep trauma, shame, and betrayal is incredible right now! You can rewire your nervous system so you can more easily trust others, yourself, and life again. Part of that trust is maintaining healthy boundaries! You can also make great strides in decreasing debt and increasing channels of abundance. Meditations will be profound and will help you connect with the magic of the Universe!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
If single, you can start a profound and passionate relationship! If partnered, you can revive your love and excitement for one another. You can also tune back into your creativity as a couple and just have more fun together. In general, as a Leo, be with people who let your inner light be bright! It’s not good for your soul to be with anyone who wants you to tone yourself down in order to make them more comfortable.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Although you often worry about your health, you’re also a powerful healer! Meditate on the positive aspects of your body. Then expand gratitude and love to parts you don’t like, or aren’t working optimally. You’ll notice a big shift! Do the same for aspects of your personality, since you’re so self-critical. It’s a great time to learn healing techniques for others, like reiki. Also, you can have a major work opportunity! Just be sure to stay firm in your work/life balance.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Renew your creativity and sense of fun! Even if you’re struggling with depression or grief, make time each day for playfulness. It’ll be an amazing healing ritual that will change your energy. You can also start a passionate new relationship, or rekindle excitement in a current bond. If you have kids, you’ll be able to connect on a new level that leads you on a path of more love and trust. Treat yourself to a gift and bless yourself with a sense of abundance!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
You’re tough and can endure so much, but you deserve to be peaceful. It’s so important to feel you have a home, or a space in your home, where you feel grounded and safe! Create a sacred meditation area. Surround yourself with objects that are meaningful to you. Also, be sure to eat well. Avoid caffeine, sugar, or other foods that rev you up and make you unsettled. It seems wimpy, but speak to yourself with kindness and compassion so your inner mental landscape is also a safe place to be!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
There’s so much power in your words and thoughts! Of course, that’s always true, but right now you have extra “manifestation mojo”! Meditate and find phrases that resonate in your heart and use them to rewire negativity and set down roots of positive new beliefs. You can connect with people who are passionate about their lives and start great friendships. However, if you’re angry with anyone, breathe before you speak, since what you say can be more wounding than you intend.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Many planets are financially empowering you this month! Meditate on the abundance of the Universe. Tune into the fact that money is a form of divine energy, always surrounding you. Allow that belief to root into your bones and in every cell! Now create goals with specific small steps to achieve your dreams. Use this same process for building deep self-worth and an unshakable sense of personal value!
