Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Happy Birthday, Leo! It’s a great time to get re-inspired with your spiritual practices. Meditate on gratitude to keep your mood uplifted and your heart expanded. Make a list of what you’d like to manifest in your life and dwell in the feelings of what you’ll feel like when actually living those dreams. In this way, you’ll create an electro-magnetic field that draws your wishes to you! If a past relationship comes back, make sure it fits who you are today. If career options pop up, contemplate all aspects fully.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Ponder the promises you’ve made to yourself but haven’t fulfilled. You serve so many people in your life, and you shouldn’t be the last person on your list! Are you making time to meditate, eat well, rest, and do the things that bring you joy? Enlist a trusted friend to help keep you accountable in consistently nourishing yourself. Speak up with others when you feel angry. You’re not being a fussy jerk. Trust yourself that boundaries were broken, and it’s time for a conversation to reassert your limits.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Work is busy and going well, but remember to make time with friends. Social connections are an essential nutrient for your soul, Libra! If you’re having romantic struggles, meditate on your most intense childhood “issues.” (There’s some unconscious connection between past and present right now.) You can have breakthroughs within yourself and heal those old wounds. Then the current relationship concern will have less “energy” around it. You’ll be able to resolve things with more emotional balance and clarity.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Meditate on the values that matter most to you in relationships. If shifts and conflicts are happening in your connections, get present in your heart to see if these are just surface issues, or a sign or greater differences between both of you. Communication can be bumpy this month, so pause before speaking. But make sure you don’t give the silent treatment either. Your ideas are important to express!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Get grounded in your spending. You could even create a new budget that allows for some “fun” money, because you’ll just rebel against sudden limits that are too strict. Meditate on prosperity affirmations, remembering that all energy is spiritual, even financial energy. If you’re frustrated with work, wait until next month to make a move. Open your heart and mind first and better options will flow into your world!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You can fall in love this month! You can meet someone who is a fulfillment of a long-ago wish. Or you can reignite passion with a current partner and feel like you’re getting to know each other again! It’s a good time to have deep conversations with people and forge more intimate bonds, even if that’s with friends or family. You’ll feel trusting and connected with many people in your life. Remind yourself to be creative and playful to keep your good vibes going!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Treat your body with kindness. Make sure you’re eating well and getting enough rest. Explore forms of meditation that center on feelings within your body. It’s too easy as an Aquarian to think about your emotions, rather than literally feel them in your body. You’ll have deep healing of old life issues this way, as well as feel more connected with others. Pay attention to dreams and flashes of intuition, since powerful guidance is all around you right now!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Trust your instincts! You’re so intuitive, but often overlook your inner voice since it’s so subtle. The more you heed your inner guidance, the stronger and more reliable it will become. Surround yourself with supportive people who believe in your spiritual growth and validate your gifts. Also nourish your spirit by creating art, dancing, or being playful. Children and pets restore your natural innocence and will be healing as well!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
With Mars hanging out in your sign for an extra-long time, you’ll be filled with energy! Be efficient by making a list and getting stuff done so you also have time for fun. Also meditate on long term, meaningful goals. Take steps each day to make progress toward those dreams! Spend time with people who encourage your passions. Mars can also be anger. If feeling blocked with others, contemplate the actual root so you can present your feelings calmly instead of “shooting from the hip.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Uranus moves retrograde in your sign. It’s a great time to meditate about your true identity. As a Taurus you can be a people-pleaser. By being still and centered, you can become rooted in your own dreams, goals, and opinions. Connecting with your heart and soul in this way will shift relationships for the better and also help your health and vitality. Make sure to set limits with others so your anger doesn’t get bottled up. Also, do something you love that you’ve haven't made time for in a while!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Meditate and find the courage to live your dreams! Tap into the powerful desire that motivates your soul. You can be feeling ready for a mature and intimate relationship, or perhaps a fulfilling job. You can also heal old wounds in your psyche. Enlist the support of friends who want to see you succeed. You can also have financial breakthroughs. Use the Law of Attraction to magnetize blessings to your heart and into your life!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Venus, the planet of love, is in your sign. You’re such a faithful friend and partner, but remember to be true to yourself as well! Meditate on the emotional balance or imbalances within your deepest relationships. Correct the issues that cause you to feel taken advantage of and maintain healthy boundaries to keep good relationships strong. If there’s work problems, wait until next month to make moves. Pay attention to dreams, since your soul is giving you signals!
