Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Happy birthday Sagittarius! It’s a power-packed year, starting off with a total solar eclipse in your sign! It’s a time of new beginnings — and please dream big! Of course, it's been a hard year, but so much is possible for you. Jupiter and Saturn also both change signs, bringing you divine inspiration and extra optimism. You can meet more people who resonate with your spiritual outlook. Romantic relationships will be awesome since Venus in your sign as well!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Jupiter and Saturn change signs to bless your finances for the next year! Also, meditate on being worthy to receive abundance. We have an eclipse that stimulates your subconscious. You can release negative messages that create self-sabotage in many areas of your life. So meditation could seem almost disruptive as all that “junk” swirls up from the depth of your mind. Trust it’s a needed detox and don’t judge the “quality”. Life flows so much smoother into the new year because of the subliminal purging happening now!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Jupiter moves into your sign for a twelve-month stay! It’s the planet of abundance, joy, optimism, and good karma! In meditation, let your mind expand to embrace all sorts of possibilities. It’s like reawakening after a dormant time. Saturn also moves into your sign, creating stability for your value system. You can manifest lofty goals on a firm foundation with this combo. Surround yourself with like-minded friends with big hearts and big dreams!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
The total eclipse brings career breakthroughs! Remember you’re more talented and qualified than you give yourself credit for! Celebrate your strengths and learn to view yourself the way others do, which is non-critically. Jupiter and Saturn both change signs, opening greater levels of your intuition. You can even ask for guidance in your dreams. Keep up with your mediation practice since it’ll pay off by feeling constantly connected with your higher wisdom.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As Jupiter and Saturn change signs, you’ll have an upsurge of inspiration! Meditate on meaningful activities and find ways to get involved in your community. Surround yourself with like-minded friends. In addition, the eclipse makes you more interested in spiritual growth. You might read new information that excites you. And remember, meditation can be active, like yoga, qigong, even walking in nature. Don’t associate meditation and introspection with being still and stagnant. Embracing your vital energy is the best way for you to feel connected with the Universe!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This month’s eclipse helps you become aware of hidden resources. This can mean financial breakthroughs. In fact, Jupiter and Saturn also combine to bring amazing career opportunities! Other resources can be an intensification of passion and intimacy. Relationships can flourish in all sorts of ways! You’ll also be able to forgive and release old resentments so you have more room for trust in your heart. That could be a great meditation to do for the year’s end!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It’s an amazing relationship month for you! Meditate on how to improve a current partnership. If you both come together and communicate openly and lovingly, you’ll make shifts that lead to amazing results. If single, your own inner growth from self-reflection attracts someone with similar interests and values. It’s also a time of harmoniously balancing partnership with individuality. Stick with affirmations to continue the good feelings!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s a great work month! You can have results from efforts you’ve made over the past two years. Patience is paying off, quite literally, as Jupiter and Saturn connect together to improve finances, as well as give you recognition. The same goes for improvements in your health, especially with eating issues. Your self-esteem is higher and you’ll feel you deserve the best treatment, which doesn’t include habits of self-sabotage. You’ll also feel a renewed sexiness!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Jupiter and Saturn bring tremendous healing to relationships. Meditate on what your values and priorities are for partnerships. Things need to measure up or be altered to fit the soul desires of your heart. The eclipse also supports your commitment to your passion! Living from joy is your spiritual destiny and you’re no longer willing to give up this vital part of yourself! If partnerships are healthy, focus on nurturing your artistic and playful sense. Don’t be “too busy” and neglect this sacred area.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
It’s good to be aware of your health, but recognize that worry depletes your energy on various levels. Jupiter, Saturn, and this month’s eclipse harness forces to heal your mind from excessive “research” and stressful thoughts. Trust that your body knows how to heal when it’s well rested. Eat well and take supplements if you want, but also practice deep breathing (especially exhales), get enough sleep, and generally decompress at points during each day. Also, don’t try to solve longstanding family issues right now. You'll get too tangled up in all of it! Meditate, but don’t mediate!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Focus on the power of positive thinking with this month’s eclipse! It’s important to soothe yourself as a Libra since you’re easily affected by other people’s emotions. Center yourself in grounded optimism and you’ll be able to stay poised when interacting with family members, work colleagues, or whomever! Also, relationships will be flourishing! Challenging issues in current partnerships resolve. If single, a powerful and fulfilling new bond can start! Also, nurture your sense of play and art for added spiritual joy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
This month’s eclipse makes it a powerful financial month for you! Also, your capacities for manifesting your desires are very strong. Meditate on being tuned in with the divine source of prosperity, love, health, family harmony, or whatever you feel you need right now. Be open to new channels of abundance, love, and wisdom. You can also have healing breakthroughs regarding issues from your family of origin and longstanding emotional patterns.
