Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Happy birthday Virgo! Please acknowledge your talents. When you downplay your gifts, you downplay your effectiveness to serve others. Meditate on releasing shame about being confident. It doesn’t mean you’re conceited or snobby; it means you’re expressing your divine energy! Even if negative thoughts come up (and they do when forming a new thought pattern), declare them untrue and breathe through them. Surround yourself with friends who give positive feedback about your strengths!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
There’s a saying “Think you can, think you can’t, either way you’re right. ”This month reveals that to you! Choose to believe the internal voices that tell you that you’re loved, valued and appreciated. Have the courage to cast worries aside as “mental static.” Your confidence will soar and relationships reach a new level of security and bonding. You can even get a work promotion or job offer without trying! Your grace and poise attract opportunity. Trouble sleeping? Try deep breathing or gentle yoga before bed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Don’t hold in stress! Open up to trusted friends for compassion, connection and solutions. Group meditation can also provide answers and relief. Really listen to what people say about you and take in their opinions. Your loyalty and inner strength give inspiration to many! You might also reconnect with siblings or extended family in a new way that heals the bonds and creates more connection. Treat yourself to a financial splurge or a mini-vacation. Indulgence isn’t usual for you, so allow some fun!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
There might be confusion at work, but try to breathe through it instead of making hasty decisions. Ask for clear answers during your meditation time, and be patient for them to appear. You could even get a promotion because you’ve been poised under pressure and not reactionary. When you’re grounded and centered you’ll also make good choices with family issues too. Blow off steam with trusted friends who help you laugh about the chaos!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Your meditation gives clear guidance for others, but they might not be ready to listen. Later this month you’ll know when to plant a seed gently in their mind. In the meantime be a role model through your actions. It’s a great time to do any short vacations, especially if it’s a yoga/spiritual retreat or spending time in nature. In general you’ll feel burdens coming off your shoulders and that your efforts are being recognized and are bearing fruit! A budding relationship can solidify. If in longterm partnership, you’ll feel quiet gratitude that builds even more security and connection.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
You’re so friendly that most people wouldn’t know that it’s hard for you to truly open up the depth of your heart. Meditate on feeling and releasing times when you experienced rejection or betrayal. Don’t just think and remember — really feel the pain so it can be fully purified out of your energy field! This process helps you trust your own heart again and be able to love at a deeper level that you ever have before. You’ll also open avenues of prosperity and abundance!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Be sure you’re not overreacting emotionally in relationships. Even if things are actually bad, and not just in your over-wrought imagination, meditate about how to best approach the issue. This month’s full moon can wind you up, but other angles offer clarity. Take advantage of the internal guidance you receive when you are still and poised. Similar patterns can emerge at work as well. Avoid gossip or “blowing off steam” with colleagues in case you regret what you said later! Don’t avoid making changes, just wait until you aren’t volatile or anxious.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Like Pisces pals, the Full Moon can wind up your imagination and subconscious fears. Meditate and get grounded before you speak or act! Pay extra attention to eating a clean diet, getting enough sleep and reflection time. Getting a massage would be great. Having caffeine, sugar and junk food is not a good plan right now! When you energy is balanced, you’ll have breakthroughs at work that can lead to a promotion or new position. Give thought to keeping your body “clean” with good food when you get the steady mental results this month!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You can be very serious and overly focused on accomplishing goals, especially right now. Allow yourself to play! Having fun gives your brain a break and lets your intuition to “download” fresh energy and ingenious solutions that won’t come if you just “power through”. Even in your meditation practice, change it up by spending time outside, especially by water if you can! Everyone in your life trusts you and knows how much integrity you have. Let go of proving your value all the time, so that anxious energy is freed up for enjoyment and bliss!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You might feel stressed about creating balance between work and family/relationship. Don’t get caught up in chaos or hopelessness about job situations. Meditation helps you find the strength (and humor!) to get through challenges. Your intuition also brings solid solutions that reveal themselves over a few weeks. Keep imagining how you can “have it all”! You can have prosperity without being a slave to a job, and you can have enough time for a fulfilling bond while being successful at work. Regular gratitude lists will be amazingly helpful right now!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
The full moon this month is almost like a Mercury retrograde for you. Please meditate before you speak, since you can be reacting from past issues or just misunderstanding someone. Run your “manifesto” by a trusted friend before you say things you regret! If partnered, see if s/he is open to a regular meditation practice together, which will increase the bond of trust between you. Career-wise, an awesome opportunity that is super meaningful can come your way at month’s end!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Watch for temptations to over-spend or to make impulse shopping decisions. If you focus on divine abundance and meditate on prosperity, powerful solutions will come about handling money in wise ways. It’s also good to have solid financial guidance from an advisor to plan for the future and to eliminate debt. You’ll also have major improvements in self-esteem, and even body image if you have issues in that area. Praise your body for the miracle that it is so you have better health physically, emotionally and spiritually!
