Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You may be driven by forces you don’t fully understand today, but you’re hopeful they will lead you in the right direction. The Sun’s shift into your 8th House of Transformation could send you on your own personalized version of Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey.” Sinking into the psychological mysteries of your subconscious can be a frightening venture, yet you’re likely to return with insights of great value. Mythologist Campbell wrote, “It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Working with others is your key to success now. The Sun illuminates your 7th House of Partnerships, focusing your attention on your coworkers. Fortunately, everyone has something special to teach you; it’s your job to discover what you can learn from each of your relationships. However, unrealistic expectations will only lead to discouragement, so make sure that your fantasies are not mistakenly mixed up with reality. Just remember that limits, like fears, are often just illusions.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Temporarily setting your goals aside is discouraging if you lose perspective on your life. The Sun’s move into your 6th House of Service demands that you closely reexamine your daily routine so you can form a clear picture of the tasks you must perform on a regular basis. Delaying personal gratification does not imply failure. Instead, setting new priorities is an opportunity to derive satisfaction from a job well done. Allowing someone else’s needs — your boss, a client or an associate — to come before your own may be a humbling experience, but an important one for your spiritual growth.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You are relatively free to express yourself without fearing repercussions today. The radiant Sun shines its light in your 5th House of Creativity, encouraging you to be true to your own inner nature. Raising expectations about your performance motivates you to work harder to realize your dreams. Although you might be overly optimistic about the results of your current activities, no harm will be done if you fall short of your goals. Robert T. Kiyosaki said, “Failure defeats losers; failure inspires winners.”
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Although you may be heading back to work or school today, your attention is inwardly directed. The Sun enters emotional Scorpio and your 4th House of Foundations, shining the light of your awareness into the most private parts of your soul. Psychological issues are brought into sharper clarity as you rummage through your memories to get in touch with the source of a current dilemma. Fortunately, you’re likely to find the needle in a haystack now if you stay singularly focused on the solution. Wayne Dyer wrote, “Our intention creates our reality.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You don’t mind sorting through piles of data to get to the truth. In fact, you’re a champion at separating the useful facts from the extraneous fluff, especially now that the Sun is visiting your 3rd House of Information. But arriving at an answer through rational analysis is not your final goal now; you aren’t finished with your job until you communicate your findings to those closest to you. Just make sure that the core of the matter isn’t diminished during your delivery of the message. Have courage and be kind.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Balancing your needs with the desires of others is an ongoing practice. Finding a place for the expression of your individuality while in a close relationship is an issue all too familiar to you. Fortunately, you can make solid progress on establishing healthy boundaries now that the Sun brightens your 2nd House of Values. Defining what’s most important to your soul is a necessary start. Deciding which of your beliefs are non-negotiable enables you to communicate with anyone, without losing your sense of self in the process.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Shining your inner light seems so natural today that you might wonder why it’s ever a struggle. The Sun strides into your 1st House of Self, illuminating your soul from the inside out. You can’t help but exude magnetism and charisma now. In fact, this is your time of year to recharge your emotional batteries. Luckily, you receive an extra gift of cosmic assistance from bountiful Jupiter at this solar return. However, your newfound optimism may trick you into taking on more projects than you can handle. Thankfully, performing a quick reality check allows you to keep your expectations in balance.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
It’s as if you are reaching the end of your personal year, looking back to see what you accomplished and looking ahead to decide what’s next. The Sun slips into your 12th House of Destiny today, reminding you that present actions will reverberate long into the future. Your vision is crystal clear now, and your instincts are right on target. All you need to do is quiet the chatter in your mind so you can hear the subtle voice of your intuition. Silence holds the most poignant answers in the universe.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You are thrilled to work as a part of a team now, because you see the positive potential of many people pulling in the same direction. The radiant Sun highlights your 11th House of Groups, encouraging you to examine the benefits you derive from collaborative efforts. Although you don’t want the plodding progress of the crowd to impede your progress, you still recognize the disadvantage of heading off on your own. Industrialist Henry Ford said, “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Increased recognition now means more responsibilities, too. The Sun joins auspicious Jupiter in your 10th House of Status, spotlighting your professional accomplishments. However, you might not be able to avoid taking on additional obligations as your past performance is rewarded by putting you in charge of a new project. Nevertheless, accepting a role that’s beyond your skill set is not wise. Instead of pretending you are someone you are not, show the world who you are and what you can do. Your transparency is your badge of courage.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You may be given a chance to pursue a new area of interest now. Or, perhaps, you become fascinated with an activity that turns into a substantial hobby. However you choose to widen your horizons, the Sun’s entry into your 9th House of Big Ideas will bring new experiences within reach. Although you might be more receptive to exploring an opportunity today, it’s still up to you to extend enough to grab one and make it part of your life. Adventure awaits.
