Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Happy birthday Taurus! You have an extremely strong intuition, but you might see it as common sense. Give yourself more credit! Mercury turns direct near super-creative Uranus, helping you gain amazing solutions to longtime problems and allows you to move out of emotional or financial ruts! When you get “out of the blue” ideas, please act on them without too much self-doubt or procrastination. Be open to new relationships, or old ones that re-appear in a new way. Don’t be afraid to take chances!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Connect with friends you’ve been too busy for lately. You’ll get re-connected to your goals and passions. (Saturn opposing you can make you overwork or believe your negative self-talk!) Maybe start back on a daily meditation or yoga practice. You need to give your mind time to rest so you can continue to be brilliant, Gemini! It’s also important to practice forgiveness to unburden your head and heart. You’ll feel excited about life again and have abundant energy.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Job problems clear out as Mercury moves direct. Let go of irritations and misunderstandings from both work and home to gain emotional equilibrium again! Remember the saying, “Would you rather be happy or right?” Show appreciation and bite your tongue when tempted to criticize. Meditation gives you cool ideas about work issues, and can even lead to a promotion! Also read about spirituality and money, to help release any shame that comes up when you begin to prosper.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Spirituality doesn’t have to be boring! Search out news ways to meditate; try obscure yoga poses; or begin a qigong practice. Chanting in another language can relax your mind and give interesting breakthrough ideas. When you feel excited and inspired, stay on that new path. Pay attention to “coincidences” that lead to new situations. You might want to plan a trip to a place you’ve never been, even a daytrip, to stimulate your brain and senses.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Use your meditation time to reflect on issues of trust. It’s vital right now to forgive past betrayals . . . not to allow yourself to be walked on, but to release the identity of victimization or low self-esteem. Forgiving means moving old thought patterns out of your mind to make room for a new life filled with love, security and prosperity. When icky thoughts pop back up, say “Change!” strongly to yourself. Immediately see the new reality you’re striving for. Regular meditation or journal writing reinforces the positive direction you’re headed toward. And dream big, ok?!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
If single, get ready for a fabulous relationship! If partnered, let go of old ways of seeing yourself and your spouse so radical healing can happen. We think of Libra being about harmony, but you can thrive on relationship tension. Maybe it gives you something to correct and balance? Practice living from emotional stability, rather than wishing for it. Also be aware of how you can create financial stress by planning well. Confront your addiction to worry and allow happiness to flow in!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
You’re strong, emotionally and physically. But why endure what’s unnecessary? As Mercury turns direct, meditate on how you create stress. (Poor food choices; lack of sleep; stewing angrily instead of directly talking with others; lack of financial planning; etc) Ponder how you can be loving to yourself. It is brave to practice unconditional kindness to all beings, including yourself. You’ll have effortless work success and relationships will flourish too!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Resurrect an old hobby or talent. Maybe you can play a sport again? Or continue dance or art lessons? Pick up that musical instrument in the back of the closet? Your awakened creativity is contagious, and connections with partners, friends and children will all spark to life. When you’re playful, work and health are effortless. Your spirituality and intuition will grow, too. Also, if you’ve been contemplating getting a pet, this is great time!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
As Mercury turns direct open your heart by forgiving parents and other childhood experiences (again!) You’ll have an amazing shift with work, even bringing in significantly more prosperity — and also you can begin a new, very emotionally healthy relationship. If already in one, you’ll see positive changes. You’ll feel relaxed and joyous. You’ll also feel more appreciated and loved. Women can heal hormone issues. And regardless of gender, you’ll be able to look at your eating and make decisive, loving and livable changes!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Last month’s Mercury retrograde gave you insights in how you fail to walk your talk. You have breakthrough ideas and probably read a lot of books, but have a hard time living those beliefs. Meditate on how you can be kinder toward yourself about this gap. Even merely pondering compassion can make it easier to live your dreams. Just for this month, stop gathering information. Instead, gently encourage yourself to embody the concepts that are closest to your heart. Life will change in a big way! Also, accept compliments from others and absorb on how loved you are.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
This is an amazing prosperity month! As Mercury moves direct, meditate on abundance and ask for insights about finances. You can have a sudden windfall. You might have a creative idea come up about work. Maybe your tax return will be larger than expected! Check out books that combine spirituality and money to keep the flow going. Also, stop putting yourself down, even in jokes, so your self-worth grows. In that way, better circumstances flow into your life!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Venus is in your sign, bringing you love and abundance! If single, you can start a romance, and if partnered, you can fall in love all over again. You have a a sense of joy emanating from you that’s contagious, so you can make friends or start fun projects and everything just goes well! Meditate on positive body image and thank your body for all his/her strengths and beauty. Aries can look at the future goal and forget to bless the awesomeness of the present! It’s not a time to push and strive, but to enjoy the hard work you’ve done.
