Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Happy birthday, Cancer! It’s a powerful year for self-expression. Create affirmations and state them boldly! In meditation, visualize and feel what it’ll be like to live your new reality. Surround yourself with people who support and encourage your dreams. If self-doubts arise, investigate root causes. You’ll make progress with childhood trauma and correct self-limiting beliefs. Every time you turn thoughts in a new direction, you get stronger. So don’t think you’re “failing” if negative ideas keep popping up.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Mercury moves “direct” and lets your dreams come true! Keep visualizing your best life. You’ll have breakthroughs with mood, health, finances and relationships. Just a little effort in the direction of your goals gives encouraging results. The Universe is giving you a “Yes!” in the areas of growth that matter most to you. Old emotional wounds can heal with people you never thought would mend. Just be sure to keep boundaries intact as you re-build the connection.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
If you’re having relationship issues, now’s the time to have clear communication. Mercury moves forward, so meditate on being more direct. Start from claiming what you desire and deserve within your own heart! You’ll feel your own truth resonate down to your bones and into each cell. This vibrational change makes life so much easier since you’ll attract people and situations that match your spirit! Shifts begin with relationships and family, then spread to work and career.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You really do hold the keys to your own handcuffs. As Mercury moves” direct,” be watchful of the words and ideas you think and speak. Challenge your thoughts. They’re just entrenched habits, and not “The Truth.” Shape and form your life every minute with loving, enthusiastic affirmations that reverberate through your entire being! Also, you can start an awesome new job/project. Relationships become more passionate. You might even fall in love with someone new if single, or rekindle love in a current connection!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Dare to speak your truth in all areas of your life! You’re often secretive about the depth of your feelings for others, but opening up creates amazing improvements in your relationships. Meditation shows what you still need to heal and release so you can trust life more. Of course, you can still maintain healthy boundaries with people! Feeling more connected increases your intuition and creativity, which then leads to breakthroughs in career. You might also begin a new health regime, like a vigorous yoga practice.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Examine the subconscious roots of financial self-sabotage. Be aware you can free yourself from any negative patterns regarding money and work. Meditation will shed light on seemingly “insignificant” bits that lead to breakthrough ideas. Also ponder how you can push away intimacy by being either scattered or blunt. A new relationship can start now, so be aware of triggers. Both prosperity and partnership can merge out of this illuminating time!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
For many signs, including yours, this month is about clarifying your needs and setting boundaries. That means with others, but also with yourself. Meditate on your goals, and then hold yourself accountable for taking actions step so you can live the life you desire! When it comes to relationships, speak from your heart and watch wonderful changes unfold. Connections can revitalize, or new bonds can be easily built.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Mercury turns “direct,” helping you be clear about decisions regarding work and finances. Meditate for inspiration and guidance. Solutions can pop into your mind, or the right people cross your path. You’ll also feel more motivation in general. If you need to, you’ll be able to easily clean up your diet or get back to exercising. Forgive yourself for old patterns that may have resurfaced the past few months. Love yourself and move ahead with compassion!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You’ll have a great financial boost doing something you truly love or really believe in! Also, meditate on the spiritual energy of money to allow even more to flow in. Revisit books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill or It Works! by RHJ. Your quantum thought power can also attract a new relationship that’s in synch with you in uncanny ways. If partnered, you can discover new things about each other that are fun and empowering. Make sure friends are truly supportive or consider disconnecting.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Mars, your ruling planet, moves into your sign. You’ll have empowerment, energy, focus and motivation! Meditate to tap into your sense of mission and meaningfulness. Mars helps you take action on inspiration from now until January! You can start a new relationship, overcome childhood issues, defeat negative thought habits and improve self-esteem. Job change could be slower to manifest. Turn any irritation or frustration into rocket fuel as you focus on what position would be a better fit for you. You’re not trapped, but you’re definitely poised for change. Stay aware that you’re merely feeling creative tension so you can stay enthusiastic about the future.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Both the New Moon eclipse and Mercury turning “direct” give breakthrough thoughts that lead to improvements with self-esteem, new friendships, healed and renewed spirituality, and also feeling that life is fun again! Meditate to release resentments and unfulfilled expectations of yourself and others. This clears the way for more “good stuff” to land in your world. You can let go of dead-end relationships and situations without guilt or fear. Use affirmations to create your future joy!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Similar to Pisces pals, you’ll be attracting more money through visualizations and affirmations. But also meditate on subconscious negative beliefs that can be clogging your divine prosperity pipeline. Choose a like-minded friend and support each other in positive thoughts. Connect with each other daily to reinforce those new neural connections of awesome possibilities! You can also have breakthroughs in intimacy and sexuality, once you clear limiting beliefs in that area as well!
