Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Happy birthday Capricorn! The theme of your year is LOVE! Meditate on your heart, remembering a time you felt appreciated by another. Let that joy expand and radiate through your body, mind and soul. Let it melt away feelings of unworthiness as it opens you to receive more love, more connection, more finances. Create a list of goals with a spiritually-minded friend and inspire each other to focus on staying open. Also practice forgiveness of childhood and family “issues” so you can freely move onward and upward!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
It’s an exciting career month! You can achieve a long-desired job or position. Spiritually, you can overcome a part of yourself that holds you back from love. Aquarians often feel on the outside, as if they were living behind an invisible wall, observing everyone else connecting and blossoming. Meditate on being included in life and bonded with joy. Allow vulnerability to surface, without seeing it as shameful or weak. Embracing your humanity shatters that self-constructed barrier once and for all!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Uranus moves direct and brings money breakthroughs! Be mindful of how you can waste money unconsciously so you can stop financial “leaks”. Meditate on prosperity for even more abundance. Also be aware of how your thoughts can literally make you sick or anxious. Lovingly protect yourself from your own negativity. As you focus on gratitude, there’s no room in your brain for random fear or worry. You’ll be physically healthier and emotionally happier! (And financially richer!)
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Uranus moves direct in your sign, bringing a great opportunity to re-invent yourself! Meditate on habits of thought that are a part of your identity and become ready to release them. You are who you consistently believe you are! Relationship breakthroughs are possible, or you can begin and exciting new bond. Not that Aries has too many hangups with sexuality, but you can heal old “issues” in that department as well! Also, you can be recognized at work for a long or difficult project, and your job just seems to get easier.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Don’t pooh-pooh your intuition! What you think of as common sense or a casual idea is a profound message from your soul. Pay attention to inkings and hunches and see where they lead. You can meet a new partner if single, or feel a renaissance in a current relationship. You can have a deep healing about a family “issue” you thought was permanent. You might get a wonderful job offer that has a generous salary or get a bonus in your current position. Meditate on opening to the unknown and begin to feel comfortable out of your comfort zone. It’s easy for Taurus to stay in a rut, especially if it’s a fairly good rut! Challenge yourself to expand into a new level of awesomeness!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It may sound dumb, but breathing is so important for you! Gemini rules the lungs, and you know how nervous you can get and how much you over-think things. Daily deep breathing, even just for five minutes will soothe your nervous system and strengthen immunity. You’ll sleep better, have less anxiety and think more clearly. You’ll even feel a deep connection with the Universe from this simple act. Try alternate nostril breathing, or even the yogic “Bee Breath” (block ear with fingers and hum as you exhale).
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
It’s a romantic start to the New Year! You can start a new relationship in a bold, brave way. Meditate on past hurts, betrayals or patterns of problems in previous partnerships. You can have major insights, be able to put experiences into perspective, and release pain. Now you can venture into the future with a fresh heart without baggage! Even if currently connected, the bond improves because you can see him/her now, instead of looking at him/her through “glasses of the past”! You’ll even have financial improvements as you let go of old beliefs about money.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
The total eclipse in your sign this month heals relationship problems, as well as issues around self-love. Meditate on forgiving childhood family drama. The more unconscious pain you expose and release, the freer you are to live and love from new chosen patterns, rather than just repeating habituated karmic cycles. Uranus moving direct inspires your spirituality in a new direction. You could start yoga, or feel more eager around your meditation practice. You could find a book or teacher that excites you about new possibilities for your life.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
The total eclipse this month helps uncover unconscious fears that hold you back from feeling fully alive! Meditate on the roots of these beliefs. They are not true, even if you’ve thought them thousands of times, they’re just thoughts! Right now you have extra energy to create positive beliefs that have momentum! Bravely think in these new ways until they become new habits and shape a new life for you! Uranus moves direct, awakening a level of trust. You can heal issues of intimacy and sexuality. You can also break poverty thoughts, so doors to abundance fling open! Enjoy yourself and don’t pick on the present moment. Allow yourself to see it as perfect just as it is.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
As Uranus moves direct, you’ll have breakthroughs in relationships. You’ll have a totally new perceptive on a present partner. Old resentments can go in a “poof”! You’ll even wonder why you saw things as problems and come to a new level of appreciation and love. If single, you can attract someone who doesn’t reflect old patterns or childhood/family “issues”. Also, meditate on opening to new avenues of prosperity. You can even have a windfall or a financial gift!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Energetic Mars and abundant, lucky Jupiter are in your sign! You can make resolutions around exercise that actually stick. Also, meditating on forgiveness gives access to energy that’s been caught up in processing old anger. You can be amazingly creative, productive and positive. Relationships heal, and your self-esteem is at a twelve year high! Working with affirmations and gratitude brings amazing results. Look up the meditation style of “Open Focus” which fits your expansive Jupiter transit.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
The total eclipse this month, as well as the conjoining of Mars and Jupiter connect you with a deep spirituality. Meditate on your closeness with Life Force. Imagine the power and wisdom of each of your cells, and the intelligence that guides them. Feel gratitude and see the benevolence of the Universe in all areas of your life. You’ll have financial openings, and a jumpstart in relationships, whether new or old. Keep a notebook or your phone by your bed to record dreams right when you wake up. There’s many messages you don’t want to let drift away as the day progresses!
