A Guide for Conscious Living since 2009
By Aluna Michaels
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Happy birthday Aries!! It’s paradoxical, but it’s month of powerful reflection. You’re impulsive, but also have a strong intuition. Meditation brings insights about what blocks success personally, romantically and professionally. You’ll see into your depths and have “ah ha!” moments of clarity. Then you can take actions that lead to big, fast results. Feisty Mars, is also around, so watch out for irritation. It’s a fine line between excitement and impatience, so take internal “check in” times to stay balanced. In this way you’ll also let go of really old patterns you thought would never change!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Loving, abundant Venus is in your sign, helping you feel happy, attractive and fulfilled! You can start a new relationship, or have resolution in current one. You can also feel self-love! Mercury turns direct giving deep meditations, or even guidance in dreams. Also see if you have courage to stand by your principles. For instance, can you live the ideals of your yoga class in the rest of your life? Or you might have to defend your views to someone. You hate confrontation, but it’s important that people around you know what is important to you. It’s ok to have opinions! Others respect you when they know you at your core.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Examine your level of trust — in yourself, in your deepest relationship, even in the Universe. As a Gemini, your “go to” feelings can be surface-y. Meditation can be used to expose hidden disappointments, and heal them by holding them in your mind with love and compassion. Facing buried issues help you be calmer and more focused in day-to-day thoughts. You’ll also be more capable of intimacy. Strangely, you’ll also open doors to prosperity! You’ll can even have relief from addictive or compulsive behaviors your struggle with!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You can have great news about work you’d given up on hearing! Even if it was three months ago, you’ll be surprised at sudden opportunities. More importantly, meditation reveals ways you’re self-abusive, and how you protect yourself from relationships because you expect people to treat you as bad as you treat yourself! It’s vulnerable to walk around without your “emotional armor”, but you’ll quickly attract people who see you as a brave, shining power source! If you do need to confront others about poor behavior toward you, you can do it from a solid internal stance, and not as a frightened victim. More than likely, you’ll be standing up to the “mean girl” voices in your own head!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Meditate on being kind to yourself. It’s a good time to set goals, but make them attainable. Make a list each day of what you’d like to accomplish, then edit it so you’re not overloaded. Small, consistent steps bring grand results! Leos get enamored with flashy things, and forget the value of foundational pieces. Don’t worry, because what seems humbling now will lead to a big “ta-da” in a few months. Ponder what you’ll feel like when you’ve succeeded in your goals and live from that awesome energy, even as you plod through the “boring” stages of progress!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Meditate on the truth that you are lovable “even though” you are flawed. Maybe you’re even more lovable with flaws! Instead of focusing on your limitations and using them as excuses to pull away from love, see them as a connecting point. Your vulnerabilities are a door to intimacy. If you wait until you’re perfect to open your heart, you’ll miss a lot of love! Most importantly, don’t withhold self-love because you’re “imperfect”. Practice laughing and other activities that bring you joy!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Relationships are bursting with love! Your spiritual and emotional work you’ve done lately shows amazing results. You’ve overcome big pieces from past programming that have held you back, in relationships, self-esteem, and even in financial prosperity. If single, you can start a new, healthy bond. If partnered, you’ll feel a sense of renewal together. Also, as Libra, remember harmony can exist even if emotional friction arises. Have courage to be clear about your views and balance will be restored without resentments.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
As Saturn and Pluto move retrograde, examine your negative thoughts. They don’t just protect you; they isolate you. Challenge your habit of emotional withdrawal. Keep a journal of thoughts and review them each night. It’s good to see how many “stinkers” are on the page! Experiment with thoughts that are opposite and feel what it’s like to live from that alternate reality of positive expectations. You’ll notice you’re not just happier, but also healthier and more focused and alive! You can create a joyous future every day as you steer your brain in new directions!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
It’s time for financial empowerment! Have courage to look squarely at finances and make adjustments where necessary. You can create major prosperity if you face where your money “blind spots” are. Read books on the spirituality and prosperity to open your mind to that dimension of abundance! Meditate on self-worth and even on gratitude for your body. Treat yourself well with enough rest, fun exercise, healthy food and stress reduction techniques. All these steps help you feel internally steady in a way you haven’t in a long time!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your sign, helping deepen your commitment to yourself. You’re often a caretaker and put yourself last. . . or you strive to succeed in many ways and forget to nurture your heart. Ponder all the ways you drive yourself unnecessarily with perfectionism, stressful goals, or critical thoughts. If you lighten up you’ll still “hit your targets”, but you’ll be more healthy and peaceful when you do! Allowing time for relaxation improves relationships, since you’ll be more present and more upbeat!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Meditation and observing your thoughts create amazing insights! You’ll be able to uproot subconscious patterns that have made you unhappy for a long time! You won’t be mean to yourself about these things; you’ll feel relieved and empowered. You can also get clues to these issues through dreams . . . or random situations during the day can provide flashes of awareness. Read about epigenetics and neuroplasticty for inspiration of shifting family patterns, or issues around trauma. Center yourself in gratitude to keep you motivated!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You’re a people-pleaser and non-confrontational. Yet, you can build resentments since people “neglect” your opinions or needs. But how can they know if you always act as if you’re ok with everything? Have courage to state your choices. Being assertive isn’t aggressive; it’s an act of trust and vulnerability to reveal your heart. Practice risking rejection, even if it’s throwing out an idea of where to go for lunch. Stating your truth in tiny ways keeps anger from building and then helps you state your ideas about bigger issues, too!
