Aries
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Completion takes time and total relaxation is needed before anything new can grow. Make sure that you are strong and rested prior to venturing into the unknown. Despite all your irrepressible energy, you are still susceptible to exhaustion. Shy away from the hustle and bustle, and immerse yourself in nature. To feel the solid earth under your feet is pure medicine. Jim Rohn wrote, “For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.” Reap yours and celebrate.
Taurus
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
A subtle change of direction is in order if it feels like you are swimming upstream. Efficient use of time creates balance and flow. If you are constantly fighting the clock now, then shifting gears will strengthen your motivation. Clearing out emotional debris can unclog your energy, and you find your power by connecting with your roots. Any expansion is dependent on a solid foundation. Paradoxically, leading with your heart stabilizes your center.
Gemini
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
It may sound too simple but your approach to a problem affects the solution. However, there are ways through even if there are obstacles to be surmounted. Core attitudes could be the only hindrance at this point, so make sure you are not creating trouble that isn’t there. Fortunately, there is an opportunity for inner cleaning if you are willing to reveal your process. Get your head out of the matrix and rise to a higher perspective. Rein in your fear unless you want it to rule you.
Cancer
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Hesitancy can be a real stumbling block, and sharing your doubts with others might confuse you even more. Not every piece of advice is solid advice, so choose your confidants with care and see if they walk their talk today. Discretion is mandatory because people have opinions about everything. Check in on your self-esteem to determine if a lack of faith in your own capacity is what’s stopping you. Organize your day and stick with your plan. Practicing discernment increases your ability to trust.
Leo
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Self-worth originates from being comfortable in your own skin. Opening your heart and maintaining a good posture can improve your attitude towards yourself. Are you truly proud of who you are or do you hide behind a mask? Being part of a greater whole is not equal to needing to be part of the group. Enjoy the company of those around you, but don’t compromise your integrity. Standing up for your convictions cultivates self-respect.
Virgo
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Allowing a bit of chaos to disrupt order can revitalize your life, but the cosmos is telling you to take back control now. Stop to check if you’re growing in the wrong direction or if your mind is repeatedly churning over the same issues. A strong navigator uses a compass and combines knowledge with action to follow the best route. Set your agenda aside and start with fresh eyes. Unhook your consciousness and explore a new path.
Libra
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You are a proficient rider of extreme waves today, but it doesn’t mean you like it. Seeing the nuances lifts your spirits and lets in the light. Speaking your truth can settle a disturbance. If boundaries are challenged, let your voice be heard. Sharing your perspective teaches people the art of diplomacy. Not only do you set yourself free from battling unexpressed emotions, you also inspire others to do the same. Honest communication requires courage.
Scorpio
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Life is not a performance. However, fear may be the primary motivating force if you continue to wear a mask to cover up your vulnerability. Real trust is a byproduct of self-exposure. People will love you for being you and not because you give them what they want. Living in integrity is the beauty of true family and friendship. Don’t let strangers step on your values and try to destroy relations that are sacred to you. Jealousy is poison; acceptance is the remedy. You can forgive but you don’t have to forget.
Sagittarius
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
A sense of belonging is crucial to soul growth but your involvement may require a sacrifice. Fortunately, learning the art of giving contributes to the health of any group. On the other hand, unhealthy and demanding ties make you uneasy and restless. Your mind wanders and you detach from intimacy when you are too philosophical about your emotions. There is meaning in everything; however, distancing yourself from your feelings will not ease the pressure. Silence the noise and reconnect with your heart.
Capricorn
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Precious time is wasted while you are busy barking up the wrong tree today. Battles that belong to others are not yours to fight. Let their problems go for now and don’t get involved in endless debates. Stay true to your feelings and stand up for yourself. You are here to serve, but not those who get a kick out of bullying others. If you’re feeling worn out, tired or melancholic, take time off from helping everyone until you restore your own energy first.
Aquarius
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Isolating from others is a way to individualize. Nevertheless, you can end up being an eternal outsider if you desire to live a life free from the values of society. Your biggest challenge is to integrate with your community without losing your sense of individuality. Reconciliation with the past restores magic to your world. Respecting all forms of life, no matter how alien they appear, holds the key to harmony. Philosopher Ken Wilber said, “Transcend and include.”
Pisces
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Focus and presence builds strength, whereas multitasking weakens your concentration. Although you’re deeply embedded in an emotional process today, you are called to leave the inner world behind to manage your busy schedule. Being overwhelmed demands capacity to prioritize. Sharpen your senses, wake up the brain, and find meaning in what seemingly is inessential to create order. The added benefit is that you will feel good about yourself. Deepak Chopra said, “The healthiest response to life is joy.”
