Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Happy birthday Aries! Venus in your sign helps you feel more loving and brings a new relationship or improves a current one. Forgive old hurts since Mars is retrograde which allows new “good stuff” to flow in! Set financial goals and also visualize what makes you happy. Keep focusing on future imagery and don’t give up since it might not manifest until mid-May.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Both Saturn and Mars are retrograde, asking you to look at old debts. Perhaps you need to re-budget and ponder what’s truly necessary. You might need to be direct with anyone who you’ve leant money to. More importantly, it’s time to clear out emotional issues. “Keeping tabs” with partners blocks intimacy. Also forgive long-ago problems with others in your past that inhibit joy today!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Be patient in relationships. It’s vital as a Gemini to have good communication. Are there any misunderstandings to clear up? Are you assuming things and then running with false conclusions in your head? Or maybe you need to have good communication with yourself by focusing in meditation about the kind of person you want to be involved with . . . and also what kind of person you truly wish to be. Breakthroughs will be slow but worth it!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Mars and Saturn retrograde want to help you meet work goals — and also make sure you work in a positive environment. Meditate to forgive co-workers or supervisors and ask for insights about how to navigate tough personalities. Don’t let others live rent free in your head! Let go of inner tension to pave the way for new job offers if current conditions don’t improve. You’ll have energy to focus and be successful which can lead to a raise or promotion!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Even if you’re having relationship challenges, don’t lose faith in love! Meditate to see how you’re being stubborn (Leo pride!) and open your mind to forgive. If single, instead of focusing on discouragement, seek out others with fulfilling bonds and see them as hopeful models for your future! Gently work to eliminate parts of yourself in order to be a better partner. Do something joyful daily — dance, visit museums, play with pets, laugh — to draw more joy!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
You’re on the verge of prosperity breakthroughs! Meditate on inherited ideas from your family or society that block the flow of abundance. Choose to not let them dictate your reality! In a similar way, limited beliefs about intimate relationships can be tossed out now, so your heart opens to trust and love. You can even heal sexual shame and other issues that inhibit bonding to others and keep you from appreciating your body as a sacred temple!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Mars and Saturn want you to heal negative thinking! As a Libra, it’s as easy to be up as to be down — so choose to be up! Even though negativity feels more “real”, it’s only because it’s a habit. Surround yourself with people who believe in greater possibilities for their life and for yours! You need support like an alcoholic needs sober pals, not friends who hang out in the bar! When your thoughts change, everything will change to mirror your mind!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Mars and Saturn retrograde bring financial help. The key for you as a Scorpio is developing self-worth. Meditate to find the root of why you believe you need to suffer and struggle. You deserve to thrive, not just survive! Dote on yourself — a massage once a month; buy organic food; say loving thoughts to yourself throughout the day. Gentleness breeds self-love, which attracts health, wealth and joy!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
As a Sag, you’re all about freedom, yet Saturn has retrograded in your sign until August. It wants to help you create disciplines that allow ease of self-expression! Without clarity, Sagittarius can flail around and waste energy being “free”. Focusing in a direction will be satisfying. Your identity and self-esteem will strengthen. You can commit to relationships and jobs that fulfill you. You can also set limits with people who disrespect you!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Unlike your Sagittarius pals, you often have too many restrictions on yourself. Saturn retrograde wants you to loosen up unnecessary self-criticism, harmful rituals and outmoded beliefs! Meditate on self-love and gentleness. Trust that you are earnest and don’t need rules to “be good” or to “get things done”. Make time for play, relaxation and silliness, which are all healing medicines for you!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Your sign is one of humanity, but paradoxically, you can struggle with social isolation. It’s time to release past experiences of expulsion by groups, which most Aquarians have in their emotional history. Clinging to the identity of outsider is painful. Meditate to release those old traumas so it feels safe to share yourself with friends and with the world. If you’re currently around people who are rejecting, let them go, no matter how long they’ve been in your life to make room for supportive comrades!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
There can be temporary delays in job changes or career advancement, since Mars and Saturn are retrograde. These planets ask to reflect on your true talents and what avenues are best for them. Meditate about breaking your slave mentality at work. You can take so much “crap” from supervisors and become victimized. Your new empowerment will attract better circumstances then just making a quick shift right now.
