Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Happy birthday Cancer! It’s a powerful month with a New Moon eclipse in your sign. It also connects with Pluto, the planet of personal empowerment, so you can tap into strengths you didn’t know you had. Meditate on how you over-nurture others, and deplete yourself. Also ponder financial habits so you can erase debt and build prosperity. By facing fears of being alone, you also tap into energy that, ironically, enhances all your relationships. You’ll know your value and “power issues” will heal as you stand in your center with love!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
The Full Moon eclipse this month connects with energetic Mars. Meditate on your most important goals. You’ll find courage and enthusiasm to go after your dreams and to make them reality. Mars is also anger and irritation, so watch out for being edgy as you move forward. Are there people who don’t like you finding power and joy and living from that space? You may have to stand up to them with clarity and confidence (Mars). Reach out to positive, encouraging friends who believe change and fulfillment is possible!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
As Jupiter moves direct, you’ll have many insights in meditation. Your intuition is super-charged! Make a list of attitudes or circumstances you’d like to change. Visualize the shifts, and also feel how it would be to live in this new way. Take steps towards your goals, and keep the feeling of their full completion in your heart. Only tell trusted friends about your plans, since it’s important others don’t poo-poo your concepts. Protect your ideas from criticism as you nurture them with faith and love.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Money flows as Jupiter moves direct! You’ll also be motivated toward career goals. If healing childhood issues or long-standing problems, meditation provides breakthroughs. Let old ideas uproot. Visualize burning them like sticks in a bonfire. The energy from that mental liberation heals your heart and open new doors of fulfillment. Even if you must confront others and cause disruption as you speak your truth, let change happen so you can be free to be your authentic self!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Jupiter, the planet of joy and abundance, moves direct in your sign! You deserve to have it easy and not struggle, so meditate on letting go of your attachment to suffering. You can have financial breakthroughs or a deeper sense of “emotional prosperity”. Inner guidance can also lead to healing childhood trauma or another issue that makes you feel unsafe in the world. Become conscious of any negative thoughts loops that play in the background of your mind. The light of your awareness can make them melt away!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
The New Moon eclipse opens you to deeper intimacy. Meditate on how your fervent idealism can build a wall between you and others. Challenge yourself to be in your heart and “feel” your opinions rather than merely think them. Sometimes your spirituality is tinged with ego. Don’t waste time beating yourself up if you find this to be true. Just surround yourself with forgiveness, and allow relationships to heal and unfold. Interestingly, dropping dogmatic attitudes can also open doors to prosperity!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
This month’s eclipses can heal relationships. The New Moon mid-July exposes problems to be worked on. Pluto links with it, so meditate on power issues. Low self-esteem allows you to be treated poorly? Or perhaps built up resentments make you take subtle “digs” at your partner? The Full Moon at month’s end reveal subconscious patterns behind your issues — from childhood or even past lives. Grasp them by the root and eliminate them from your life! Don’t be ashamed or dwell, just be grateful you see them and are able to be rid of toxic patterns. Now you can bond in joy and love!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Just like your Capricorn pals, the eclipses bring disruption in relationships, so yucky patterns can be exposed and disposed of! Meditate on compassion for yourself others. You’re all hurting when stuck in limiting patterns. Ask for their accountability — kindly, yet clearly. It’s like a breath of fresh air moves through your life. As Jupiter moves direct, lots of blessings happen at work and a dream job can even appear. Your success emerges from hard work and integrity. You deserve all the “luck” coming your way!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
The Full Moon eclipse at month’s end stirs up old anger and frustrations. So, meditate earlier in July about how you’ve bottled up feelings over the past two years. Forgive yourself and others so the eclipse brings resolution and forward momentum rather than an explosion of suppressed energy. Underneath your tension lies vital energy for health, happiness and talents. Let people who respect your boundaries get close to you. Allowing them in, even when you feel anxious or unworthy, opens you to the love of the Universe!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Jupiter moves direct and helps open the floodgates of prosperity! You’ll also feel safer being intimate with your partner, both physically and emotionally. Meditate on how childhood or parental issues have interfered with deep relationships today. This month’s eclipses bring insight and resolution. If you have power issues with someone at work, sit back and observe behavior and patterns Allow your intuition to provide solutions. Don’t take actions now, but maybe early September.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As Jupiter moves direct, communication in relationships will clarify. You can solve problems in a longterm partnership. If single, you can meet a great new person who is eager to be involved with you. Don’t be afraid to state your needs and expectations. Meditate on how valid your opinions are. Be with people that honor your ideas and want to know who you are at your core. The eclipse late July can bring disruption at work. In that arena, stay cool, observe and make responses later in August.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Jupiter going direct combined with this month’s eclipses brings insight about money, as well as an increase in your self-worth in the work force. Meditate on ways you self-sabotage with finances or undervalue your career talents. Trust in intimate relationships also gets better, since you’re seeing yourself more clearly and with love. You’re pretty awesome, and you’re figuring that out!
