Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Happy birthday Pisces! It’s an optimistic time with the New Moon and positive Jupiter in your sign! Dare to create new beginnings in terms of relationships, hobbies, and friends. Express yourself with confidence! Maybe make a fun change to your appearance. On the challenging side, it’s vital to set boundaries and observe who tramples over them. Are those people really emotionally safe for you? Meditate and visualize how you wish your life to be and you’ll have the courage to make it all happen!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You can have the powerful work success you’ve been dreaming about! The New Moon gives an idea for your next venture. Pay attention to your dreams and “hunches” because those insights can lead to something amazing. Get in touch with old friends who don’t just “yes” you, but give you balanced feedback. Get back into a regular meditation practice. This can mean a traditional sitting type, a daily walk in nature, or just a few minutes of deep breathing. Just open an avenue for your intuition!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Take your spiritual growth seriously! You undervalue your intuition and connection with the Universe. You actually have much more strengths than you give yourself credit for! Even a small bit of yoga or meditation is incredible if you do it consistently. Look for quiet, foundational changes in yourself, rather than flashy breakthroughs. You can have a new job offer, a raise or make a wonderful friend from a colleague.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This can be an amazing sexy month! Practice being present in your body through deep breathing. It’s great to not be in your mind as much. Even just noticing how the fabric of your clothes feels on your skin will ground and soothe you. You can also have financial breakthroughs! Meditate and think about how the Universe wants to bring harmony to all areas of your life, even “mundane" things like work. Allow that magic flow into to your life so you can release worry.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Be consistent with your spiritual practices of yoga, meditation, prayer, or affirmations. Believe that you can change even if you’ve been working on things for a long time! Be patient with yourself and know that healing proceeds in a spiral. It can seem you revisit the same crud, but it is on a higher level of wholeness each time. Your partnership can revitalize in a fun and sexy way! You can also have financial breakthroughs. Keep working with self-compassion and gentleness so you can stay motivated to move ahead on deep inner transformation.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
This month’s New Moon can really deepen your trust in the Universe, and in your closest relationships. You might even explore sacred sexuality. This puts you in touch with the mystical process of healing the duality and isolation. Start by being lovingly direct with your partner so you both clear out old beliefs that have built up and act as barriers between you. If single, you can meet someone who is seeking a profound bond.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Relationships can heal deeply! If single, you’ll have the courage to open your heart, even if it's been a long time. Ponder your inner dialog and beware of harsh critical messages. Challenge them by steeping your mind in self-compassion. It's amazing how much energy you’ll have and how much you’ll accomplish as opposed to when you flog yourself mercilessly! For more spiritual connection, try creating or looking at art or watching dance.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You can have major health breakthroughs, especially with issues chronic issues. You can also have relief from worry and anxiety. It’s so simple, but paying attention to your breathing and how often you tighten up and breathe shallowly can make a world of difference! Get clear about what you need in relationships whether partnered or not. Stay true to your values and have the courage to let people know your goals and needs when bonding.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Remember you can create inner joy, even if you have challenges or trauma. It doesn’t mean ignoring things, but you can diffuse the intensity with self-compassion, and this restructures your memories. Dedicate some meditation time each day, even just five minutes. You’ll be able to think in a more resilient way and allow your intuition to guide you. You’ll trust life more! You can even meet a new partner if single, or revitalize a current connection.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
I know you love being on the go, but create a sacred space in your home for meditation and grounding. You’ll be amazed at how freer you feel by quieting your nervous system in a lovely environment each day! You can sit or lay down and listen to a zen fountain. Practice deep breathing while looking at pictures of cherished pets. Be inventive about what soothes you. You’ll be more resilient, healthy, focused, and even more prosperous! Have more structure around eating habits. Nurturing your body brings you to an even higher level of spirituality.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
If you’ve been working with positive thinking and affirmations, you’ll have significant breakthroughs! It’s so good to “water” the thoughts you want to grow. It’ll be like crocuses in the spring . . . suddenly there are little happy thought flowers all over your mind! Comfort yourself during bad days or moments, but you won’t be dwelling on the negative. If finances are stressful, confronting things head-on and making a new budget makes you feel surprisingly prosperous.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Mars moves into your sign giving you energy, optimism, and sex appeal! It’s a great time to get back into a fitness routine that is fun and inspiring. Venus also moves into Aquarius, so you can begin a new relationship, or just approach them with ease and trust. Meditate to “shhh!” any negative voices on chronic repeat. Give equal time to the hopeful viewpoints, and let them have their chance to dominate your thoughts! Finances also blossom!
