Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Happy birthday Virgo! Saturn finally moves direct, opening up more options for joy and fulfillment! Meditate on your highest standards in relationships. You’ll be able to freely voice what you need from others, and you can more easily celebrate what others are offering you. You’ll feel less critical of yourself, and more open to take in the love that’s flowing all around you! Work can get really busy, so be sure to continue self-care practices and not get lost in hectic-ness.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
You’ve been working very hard on yourself to release old emotional patterns. They can even stem from childhood or ancestral lineage. Remember outmoded patterns can be recreated into new, more supportive courses of action! Saturn moving direct brings a “pay off” for your internal efforts. You’ll feel happier and it’ll be easier to maintain joy. You can also have financial breakthroughs. If single, you can start a passionate new relationship, or a current one can re-ignite!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Practice observing your thoughts. How many are negative? Make it a goal to change the proportion. You’ll have instant shifts in health, mood, and prosperity! Think those good thoughts and dwell in the elevated emotions they provide. If you encounter challenges with others, focus on how you can get your ideas across in a clear, concise, and kind way. Don’t let those issues drag you down. Ride them like a wave back up to your spiritual sense of joy. Venus into Scorpio can bring a new relationship, as well as deeper self-love!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
New love and joy want to pour into your life! It’s helpful to write about things that are making you angry and frustrated. Mars finally moved into Aquarius after being retrograde so long, and releasing clogged emotions is easy and freeing now. Write things down, then tear them up, knowing you no longer carry them in your subconscious! Focus on receiving what you deserve so you can raise your life to the next level. Really feel what it’s like to live that new reality. You can also create a path for greater prosperity!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Saturn moves direct in your sign, helping you accomplish many things you’ve been planning for months. It’s slow but steady progress, yet every step has purpose and resonates with hard-won integrity. You can make important changes in relationships, career, self-esteem and family healing. Mars changes signs and brings more “oomph” and optimism, and starts to hasten results. Venus reminds you to enjoy time with friends and doing activities you love. Also, make time to be playful even though there are so many opportunities to “work on yourself”!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Mars moves back into your sign, now that it is direct again! You’ll be filled with energy and enthusiasm to accomplish goals that have seemed blocked for months. And with Saturn also moving direct, you’ll also feel much more positive and focused. Meditate to discover old patterns that have caused frustration and are ready to be dismantled. Clues can also come in dreams, so pay extra attention. You can also get a promotion or a bonus at work!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Mars is the planet of anger, and also of energy and personal empowerment. As it moves back into Aquarius, meditate on old resentments. Even current issues can harken back to a core pattern, so today’s problems are deeper than they seem. Validate your feelings, but then find ways to forgive (while still setting limits) so the anger won’t deplete your vitality and creativity! Focus on self-love and letting go of guilt and shame. It can be a two-month inner healing project, but you’ll come out of it with renewed joy and zest for life!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
It’s a great prosperity month! Center your meditations on opening up to receive abundance. You can get a raise, promotion, new job or major recognition. You’ve been working hard and now it’s paying off. Even in your personal or spiritual life, you’ll notice gradual, but powerful progress after feeling stuck for months. Romantic relationships thrive, as do friendships. With so much tension being relieved in many areas of your life, you’re able to feel joy and have fun!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Break free from comfort zones! Open your mind to new aspects of your personality. Your soul is so vast, so imagine playing with different types of expression. You can start a relationship, or have renewed warmth in current partnership. You can also have a big career breakthrough that boosts your spirits and your wallet! Saturn direct keeps you focused on all goals, and makes you confident you can achieve them. Be sure to dedicate time each day to meditation or inner reflection so you stay open to receive all these blessings!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Re-commit to meditation, yoga or a spiritual practice. Open your heart with enthusiasm to the Universe and see what gifts flow into your life! You can begin to feel more trusting as old wounds and memories of betrayal or heartache heal. You’ll also feel more solid inside. If you suffer from anxiety, you’ll be more balanced. If you’ve been worried or confused, you’ll gain more clarity and a stronger intuition. Guidance can come in dreams, too. You can also have financial or work blessings! Stay relaxed and open to joy and abundance!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Saturn moving direct can clear up long-term problems in relationships. This can make current partnerships better, heal memories of old ones, or point you in healthy new directions for future connections. Meditate on your values about what you desire in partnerships. Then make a list you can refer to. Write about how you can express your best self, and what you most need from others. Don’t waver on your standards! This exercise can also help with office politics and even help you break through prosperity limitations.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
It’s a powerful relationship month! You can meet a passionate new partner if single, or feel more excitement in a current bond. If you’ve had friction or disharmony, meditate on the issues at hand. Then write out a plan that will be the best for both of you, or list the ideas you can calmly express. You’ll find you can be guided together to work things out in a way that empowers the connection and you’ll feel you succeeded as a unit. You’ll also find work stresses straightening out as well!
