Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Happy birthday Scorpio! Most of this month is about the Law of Attraction. Be aware of what you think, since your thoughts create your reality. Get clear about your goals through meditation. Write down the beliefs, thoughts, and actions that lead you to those goals. Also, write down self-sabotaging beliefs and actions so you can stay on your path of fulfillment by dodging those internal troublemakers! Forgive yourself for times you tried these methods and came up short. Be gentle and self-compassionate, yet focused and persistent.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
The New and Full Moons this month are a bit kooky for you! Lots is being trigged in your subconscious. Don’t judge yourself as “old garbage” is being cleared out of storage! Meditation helps to see the gems in that junk pile that you can salvage and utilize. There can be talents or dreams you’d forgotten about, and now the time is right for them. You can also have breakthroughs with stubborn health issues.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
If partnered, this is an important time to negotiate money, spending, and investment issues. It’s a challenge when you’re not on the same page! Meditation can offer amazing ideas to solve the differences between you. If single, you can have insights into avenues for prosperity. You can also meet a fun new person who brings out your playful side! Also, reach out and make new friends and try new activities even if you’re usually shy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
If you have work opportunities crop up, try not to make snap decisions. The New and Full Moons this month can make things unclear. Take the time to find more details and then meditate on your choices. Similarly, beware of jumping to conclusions about family issues. Also, meditate about things that bring you the most joy. Friends, art, fashion, love, laughter? Make time in your day, each day, to nurture and cultivate those favorite activities.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Meditate on your spirituality. Are you on a path that truly resonates with you? Or are you trying to please others by following their beliefs? It’s vital to get in touch with the voice of your own soul and your own heart and see how it is guiding you. Be willing to release negative, shaming inner voices. Also, be with friends who love what you love so you can be yourself in a relaxed and fun way!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
It’s a great time to get clear about money, investments, or debt. Be straightforward and honest with yourself. Enlist the support of trusted, experienced people. You can have breakthrough ideas that really pay off, but run them past someone else to make sure you’re not being too impulsive. (The New and Full Moons are kooky this month!) Don’t make snap judgments about relationships. Ponder conversations and your feelings. Meditate or write about the deeper root issues. Make decisions when you’re fully balanced, not hyped up!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The New and Full Moons this month can really affect you! You’re normally fairly even-tempered, but you can feel quite emotionally jostled right now. At the same time, you can be open to new ideas and new people. You won’t be as cautious. If you’ve had heartbreak, this month can be very healing and hopeful! If you have job offers, examine them closely and ask any specific questions to make sure you fully understand what’s involved.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Watch out for your tendency to obsess and worry. Meditate on soothing yourself. Focus especially on showering yourself in compassion. When you create another level of stress by judging yourself for being anxious, everything gets worse! Practice deep abdominal breathing and yoga postures that calm your mind. Open up to nonjudgmental partners or friends so they can help you see your progress. You’ll also be deepening these connections by being vulnerable with them.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The New and Full Moons this month want you to examine your patterns of co-dependence in all types of relationships. You can be the “helpless” one, or the one who is the “designated problem-solver”. Your role can switch depending on each relationship, or even within the same relationship! Meditation illuminates when helping is actually disempowers the other person or you. You’ll be able to break patterns and develop healthier, emotionally safer, and more intimate connections!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Don’t let work stress interfere with your partnership. And don’t allow relationship issues to divert you from work duties. Simple techniques like deep breathing, affirmations, and basic yoga postures bring you quickly back to center. Make sure to eat healthy food and get enough rest. If your body is nurtured, your mind will be clear! You can also have breakthroughs with old family or childhood patterns that allow you to tap into more personal power!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
This month’s New and Full Moons can make you emotionally reactive. Meditate each day, or at least focus on your breathing at various times throughout the day. Listen to the stories you tell yourself. You don’t have to believe everything you think! Your reactivity often comes from a negative internal dialog. Also, be sure to set boundaries with others in regards to how they speak with you. You can have breakthrough thoughts that shift and heal your deep, harsh self-criticalness. Defeat your inner “mean girl”!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Be kind to yourself if difficult memories bubble up from your subconscious. Allow for self-compassion! Resilient options will emerge from being heartfelt with your pain and not shaming yourself. In relationships, meditate on your needs and then choose a neutral time to express them to your partner. If single, ponder how valuable clearly knowing your desires will be in your next connection. In other news, you can get a bonus at work, and feel very appreciated, so soak that in!
