Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Happy birthday Aquarius! This’ll be a breakthrough year about love and finances. Meditate and open your mind to see what blocks fulfillment in these areas. Note down what you discover. Don’t pick on yourself, but get peaceful and become aware of steps toward solutions. Find a trusted friend to help you stay accountable, as you gently alter your thoughts and behaviors. A big clue can be forgiving childhood patterns instilled from family. All wounds can heal through love, patience and action!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Make sure you allow yourself to play, have fun and spend time with friends! You tend to work so hard on your spiritual growth and personal improvement that you can drift into morbid reflection. Trust that the hard work you do is still actively impacting you even when taking attention off of your “flaws”! In fact, more healing can happen during that rest and relaxation time. Have a prosperous friend or trusted advisor give assistance with finances. Breakthroughs with money happen as you create a balanced budget.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
It’s a great career month! You can get a job or assignment you’ve been striving for. Mars is still in your sign, giving you inspiration and energy to start new goals — however, be sure to meditate daily so you use your power most efficiently and wisely. Your intuition is also at a high pointt, so take advantage of it! Ponder commitment issues in relationships. Make sure you’re not creating distance from your partner. Also watch for “being bored” which can mask fear of intimacy!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Reconnect with your love of meditation, yoga or your favorite spiritual practices! Pay extra attention to dreams for inspiration and guidance. Spend time with friends who are aligned with your metaphysical ideas. The more you talk about your internal reality, the more “real” it becomes. The validation keeps you on your path of self-discovery. Mars moves into your sign for two months, giving energy and courage for change. You can start a new relationship; go for a challenging job; or surprise yourself with shifts that previously made you apprehensive!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It’s appropriate with Valentine’s Day approaching because this month is about surrendering to love. Watch for inner defenses that push others away. Are you snarky and sarcastic? Are you chronically busy or distracted? Meditate on barriers that keep you from absorbing love. Do you dwell on negative beliefs about yourself? Do you choose partners with vastly different values and goals? Forgive yourself for all these patterns as you stay aware of them. Watch love flow in! Also use the same investigative process on limits around financial abundance. Take a vigorous yoga class or even play sports to increase your enthusiasm for change and growth.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
If you’re struggling about relationships, meditate and allow for inner wisdom to arise. Don’t stress or worry about figuring things out. Don’t have endless conversations with people that go in circles. Quieting your heart brings answers and clues that lead to healing and harmony. If single, you can draw a solid person who matches your values. Work-wise you’ll be challenged, yet eager to learn. You can even move into more leadership. Just beware of gossip. Stay out of it and let people’s egos spin and crash around you!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Balance your enthusiasm for spiritual growth with gentle self-care. Evolving your consciousness isn’t a competition. If you feel perfectionism creeping in or jealousy at others’ accomplishments, try going softer, not harder. Practice deep breathing in the day, as well as meditation, getting enough rest, body care sessions or yoga. Then you’ll have energy reserves to “go for it” when the time is right and not be burned out. You can also get a work promotion or praise from superiors. Your heart and pure motives are acknowledged by those who matter!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Much like your Gemini friends, meditate on the ways you push intimacy away. Intimacy can mean love, relationships, peacefulness, prosperity, or joy. Your biggest obstacle is probably self-criticism. Vow to stop the “compare and despair” trap. Working toward self-improvement doesn’t mean you can’t be cherished now as you are. Practice saying “yes” to positive feelings, to compliments, to abundant possibilities. Let your partner or a trusted friend know about this inner journey so he/she can support you.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You can be starting a sexy new relationship! If partnered, you can re-spark primal attraction. Either way, this month awakens your passion for life in all areas. You’ll also feel bold enough to be direct about what isn’t working in relationships,. You can clear out issues and build healthier communication and connection. Make sure your home is comfortable and relaxing. Have a dedicated space for meditation that’s inviting and soothing. You can also heal memories about childhood “stuff” that interferes with joy and confidence. Reconnect with old friends who really know who you are at your core.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Like Libra pals, you can be starting a new relationship that’s not only passionate but aligned with your deepest values. You get closest to people who you know have the capacity for deep communication and insights into life and themselves. Meditate on being patient with those in your life who do not have those abilities, especially co-workers. Also be sure to rest this month and make time to eat well. Eliminate foods that cause physical inflammation or emotional agitation like coffee, sugar or gluten.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Valentine’s month brings lots of opportunities for love, play and joy! Even in a longterm connection, make efforts to revitalize your energy together. Focus on finances. Meditating on prosperity expands your wallet so you can pay bills and debts while still saving and even having money to burn! You can get a promotion at work or feel newly inspired by your job. Also try active and challenging forms of yoga.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Venus in your sign, bringing self-love, prosperity and general good feelings! Meditate on having the discipline to “dwell” on positive thoughts, beliefs and outcomes. It’s too easy as a Capricorn to focus on negative things that you would say are “realistic.” Choose an upbeat friend to have conversations about gratitude each day. You’ll have more physical energy, less problems in relationships and amazing breakthroughs in many areas of your life!
