Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Happy birthday Gemini! Your year begins with intense focus and intuition. Write out your goals for the year, and imagine things as grand as possible! When doubts arise, examine your self-limiting beliefs. Meditate on what it would be like to attain your goals without those constraining ideas. Maintain that faith and expanded vision though out your day! Financial abundance flows in, but make sure you attend to your most crucial bills first before you play.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s easy to get frustrated or discouraged if you’re not getting your needs met. Meditate and reflect upon with whom you’re interacting. Are you somehow seeking water from an “empty well”? Don’t let other people’s emotional limits make you feel bad about yourself! Seek out friends, relationships and jobs that are an “energetic match”. Find generous, positive and loving people. Also, focus on the concept that the Universe is a place of all sorts of abundance and wants you to be fulfilled!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Meditate on anger, irritation and resentments. Clear out your mind of what’s been rattling around in there. Some issues can be imagined or blown out of proportion. Some are valid, but need grace, tact and timing. You need a clear head from meditation to discern. And also seek advise from a trusted, wise and impartial friend. Once your mind and heart are unburdened, you’ll have renewed energy physically, and fresh motivation for goals. Also seek advice about finances before making big decisions, and beware of spending as a way to “let off steam” as you explore unconscious patterns right now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
If you’re having challenges in relationships, be playful together. Plan fun activities that are new to you both. Play sports or board games for friendly “conflict”. Spend time with mutual friends who are active and have a good sense of humor. If single, do active things that explore new parts of yourself. Meditate on seeing yourself in fresh ways, not just “as you are” as if you’re set in stone. Also meditate on your partner as a fluid, evolving person as well, because they are! If single, connect with people who aren’t your usual type, yet share your values.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Observe your reactions to authority figures, such as supervisors as work, or even your spouse/partner when you’re having conflict. In an effort to always be nice, you can give away your power. Right now planets show how you get defensive or panicked when feeling “bossed around”. Meditate on healing core issues with parents or family, looking for similar patterns. Also remember you’re always in control of your reactions to others. Ponder the truth that you’re steering your own ship, which is hard to believe when you’ve triggered an old story. Even a few deep breaths can restore you to center, so breathe before you even think, speak or act!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Spiritual growth is a gradual process, but you might feel very impatient right now! As a Scorpio, you’re blessed with visualizing and believing in perfection, but cursed by the self-flagellation of not attaining what you know is possible. Meditate on self-love, and allow yourself errors or lapses in judgement. Focus on loving yourself each moment. Gently align your thoughts toward kindness and patience, and ironically, you’ll advance in leaps and bounds in ways that are vital to you!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
A bunch of planets work together to help you tap into passion! That can mean sexuality, creativity, physical energy or financial abundance. You’re naturally enthusiastic. Meditate on what experiences or acquired belief systems snuffed your spirit. Find ways to forgive the past and rebuild trust in life. You might even find you have a food allergy or that environmental toxins weigh down your joy. Have a heart-centered practice each day, even as simple as walking in nature for a few minutes. Your intuition will reawaken and you’ll feel excited and internally directed once again!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Don’t let your perfectionism and self-criticism keep you from love! You don’t have to be perfect to be in a healthy, happy partnership. Also be aware of picking fights with those close to you as a way to “prove” how unworthy you are. Or watch for exaggerating everyone’s flaws to justify your emotional isolation. Meditate on how many people love you and are inspired by you. Think of friends, family, your spouse, children, co-workers, even pets! As you are gentle with yourself, be gentle with others who have their own fears of bonding and potential rejection.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Meditate on how habits of irritation, or old resentments can limit your vitality. Make a list of things that make you unhappy. Gently breathe in and then take a very long, slow exhale, imagining one of the items on your list leaving your body, mind and soul. Continue with each item until you feel renewed and reinvigorated. You can also practice when having a massage, or during a yoga class. Lots of people can be edgy this month, so remember to have compassion for others how are as uncomfortable as you’ve been. Inspiring solutions to problems will pop into your mind because you’re not bogged down with petty “junk”. Laughter is also a great stress reliever now, as is playing with pets!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
You’re so giving and accepting, Pisces! But also remember boundaries and limits. If you’re super irritated, don’t lash out at others. Meditate on how you’ve allowed a pattern to develop. When you’re more calm, you can communicate your needs to the “offenders”. Set your new limits clearly and respectfully, but it’s up to you to check in with yourself often to see if you’re maintaining those limits. It’s a “retraining process” for you as well as for people around you. Be gentle and consistent with everyone involved!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If you’re frustrated at work, or anywhere in your life, resist the tendency to “ram” through the issue with force. Remember the power of your intuition! Cultivate it with meditation each day. Even ten minutes of sitting with deep breathing attunes your mind to ingenious ideas that bring alignment to everyone involved. As solutions flow into your life, you might even get an amazing promotion or brand new job since you’ll be seen as even more valuable than before! Practice “mini-meditations” with household members for harmony there, too!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Remember the power of words! Be careful of complaining about problems, which can block your intuition from bringing you answers. If you think the issue is insurmountable, you can overlook whispers from your soul that hold the key to freedom. Speaking affirmations and feeling what it’s like when the issue is resolved, makes “magic” happen in your life! Hang out with friends who believe in positive shifts. Ask them to help keep your mind centered on the bright future that is on its way!
