Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Happy birthday Gemini! It’s hard to focus your mind but experiment with affirmations and manifestation in your meditation time. Write out what you want to create in your world — relationship, career, finances, etc! Read the statements often. Look at images that inspire you. “Marinate” your brain in this “desire stew” instead of just having random thoughts. Even if it takes six or nine months, you’ll see results!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As Pluto moves back into Capricorn for a few months, stand firm in your needs in your relationship. Don’t slip back into co-dependent patterns. You deserve more than you usually settle for! Financially you can have amazing breakthroughs. Practice gratitude for whatever money you have and watch it grow, like tending to a garden. Meditate and scan your subconscious for inner criticism or shame. Stand up to those old voices and banish them!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Venus and Mars are in your sign for a few months, opening your heart for new love! If partnered, you’ll experience a deeper connection. If single, you can start a passionate bond. Either way, you’ll feel tremendous self-love and appreciation. Let your heart shine bright and bless everyone around you! Explore creativity, fashion, and self-expression. Return to health practices like yoga and organic foods. You’re worth it!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Saturn and Pluto move retrograde, asking you not to put up with bad relationships. Meditate and find the inner spark to say ‘No!” to poor behavior! It’s a good time to be in therapy to expose and squash patterns once and for all. Your dream life will be very active. If you’ve put aside some sort of creative outlets like art or dance, devote time in your schedule to rekindle that talent! It will be amazingly healing.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
As Pluto moves back into Capricorn, be gentle with yourself about childhood memories. It can be good to heal from trauma, but revisiting too many times can be re-traumatizing. Focus on nurturing yourself instead. Spend time with loving friends. Eat well. Get enough rest. Meditate on gratitude and even small moment of happiness. And have fun! You’re not ignoring reality; you’re building a foundation of resilience.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
This can be an amazing career month, opening the door to many months of success! Make sure to balance work with play, since your spouse, kids, and even pets could feel neglected. You’ll be just as successful by nurturing your personal life as well, so don’t worry! Meditate on releasing self-judging and self-persecuting thoughts. Release the internal harshness that feels like “it’s just how you are”. You can be self-loving and still driven toward your goals.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
If you struggle with sitting meditation and stilling your mind, get creative! It’s easier if you are out in nature. Allow yourself to observe your surroundings -- sights, sounds, and smells. Being present to your senses is healing and grounding. Also moving meditation like yoga, qigong, and even biking, hiking, running or swimming can be spiritually enlightening for you! Additionally, address money issues that are causing stress so you’ll feel more peaceful!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Pluto moves back into your sign for a few more months, offering you more personal power! Meditate on having healthy boundaries. Set goals that embrace all your potential, even if that threatens others. You might even work with weight training and body strengthening. Don’t sell yourself short! Mars and Venus are igniting your sexuality in a profound way that can feel both hot and sacred. Stay true to being you!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Relationships can heat up with passion! Even long-term partnerships can revitalize in a surprising way. As Pluto moves back into Capricorn, allow gritty, “unspiritual” thoughts to arise in meditation. Your subconscious is clearing out lots of old tension, anger, and frustration. Even bad dreams are good in this respect. See it all as a sacred emptying of the trash! Financially, get back in touch with spiritual abundance concepts and resist “poverty thinking”.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Saturn turns retrograde in your sign. Be kind to yourself and meditate on how you criticize and compare yourself with others. Remedy the meanness by praising your body, appearance, skills, and talents. You’re not denying any flaws, but are giving equal time to the great things about yourself! Pluto moving back into Capricorn might inspire you to get involved in a meaningful volunteer project, where you can meet awesome friends!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You can have incredible job offers and career advancement these few months! Even if you’d given up, things can still happen in your favor. Relationships sizzle with sexiness, and if single, you can meet a new partner! You might also get re-inspired in terms of working out or playing sports, and your body will respond quickly to getting back in shape. If you’ve been out of the meditation habit, bring back gentle disciple and try ten minutes a day. Your intuition and sense of inner peace will increase right away!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
It’s a great time to redecorate your home and make it feel like a comforting haven. You might want to have more parties or even meditation gatherings instead of going out. Pluto moving back into Capricorn strengthens your commitment to yoga or other spiritual studies and practices. Reconnect with old friends. Don’t be shy even if you’ve been out of touch for quite a while. They’ll be grateful to hear from you!
