Aries – (March 20 – April 19)
You have two challenges this month, Aries. The first one is to analyze all of the meanings of the word “surrender.” Rather than the traditional terms such as “yield”, or “give in,” take a moment to contemplate how you can approach it from a point of strength. Kabbalah teaches that your sign channels a great power to create miracles - when you learn to listen, and reflect before taking action. You do not lose your will power by listening to what others have to say; in fact, someone has an important message this month. Your second challenge is to be patient, and maintain your focus in the face of all of this information coming from others. Important decisions are best made on the 20th – after you get the facts on the 19th!
Taurus – (April 20 – May 20)
If you’re feeling a bit out of the loop, Taurus, relax and know that this too, shall pass. This is your quiet time and space – things will get much busier towards the end of the year. You’ve got some internal ‘processing’ to do, still. Keep it Light; and know that you are an inspiration to someone very dear. The moon is in your sign from late evening on the 17th until the 19th- do something special with this important someone. You may be tempted to fill your uncertainty with material goods or food; this is not the answer. Methodically placing one foot ahead of the other is what best illuminates your path now; that and self nurturing.
Gemini – (May 21 – June 20)
You are called upon to serve on the home front, but your energy is coming so clear and brightly, that you do this and more, easily. However, you must resist the temptation to abandon long held dreams for every passing butterfly. There is an even bigger caterpillar out there still waiting for the transformation which comes next year. Saturn traveling thorough your solar 4th house is demanding discipline and patience; recognize that Saturn is also helping you build a strong foundation for your tower of success. Jupiter and Pluto both transitioning into direct motion on the 7th and 8th respectively are closing the windows of your past and opening doors to a new era.
Cancer – (June 21 – July 21)
This month brings a turning point on the grand scheme of your life. New information comes which changes the way you see yourself as your future is granted clarity by a lightning bolt from your past. Keywords are: creativity, sudden insights, shocking, and even illumination. Also, think catalyst, and ultimately, freedom. You are given the gift of divine understanding now, and events will align into your new world views with perfect timing. Knowledge is power, but you have also been granted wisdom. Remember this on the 23rd, when your words strike out as a double edged sword – choosing the blade of compassion is usually the best choice.
Leo – (July 22 – August 22)
You must go DEEP Leo; deeply into your emotions, your caring self. Family issues burn hotly in this season of harvest and nurturing. Mother-daughter relationships are highlighted now. You can only live in the present; the past is over, and the future is not here yet. Although the focus in your personal life might be searing, your financial and professional picture is bright. Your hard work is beginning to pay off in a big way, plus, unexpected bonuses happen so often they almost feel predictable. Lucky days are the 7th and 22nd. September is a month of contrasts; focus on the bright light and move always towards the Sun. Your popularity peaks on the 11th, and you are brilliant on the 19th.
Virgo – (August 23 – September 22)
You’ve been patiently waiting, and finally the stars are sending a special delivery with your name on it. The Full Moon of September 15th joins unpredictable Uranus, insuring that the one thing you can count on is change. With several planets in your solar 2nd house of finances and self value, this one also sings a song of sudden advancement. Your craftsmanship is impeccable, and your timing is steady. The 19th is a great day for inspiration. Mercury retrograde after the 24th counsels temperance on your part, however. The horses are bridled, the carriage is on its way, but the path is not yet cleared.
Libra – (September 23 – October 21)
Hey Kitty! Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your sign most of this month have you looking like the cat’s meow. Think about it – love goddess Venus at home in one of her rulership signs, Mars mellowed by graciousness, and Mercury – well – he/she may be just a bit indecisive. But still, it looks good on you. Why not just go all out social, Libra. This is a great month for meeting new people and connecting with old friends. The best part is that there are amazing opportunities just waiting for your call. Each Friday of this month is made to order for you, Libra. Take advantage of the situation.
Scorpio – (October 22 – November 21)
You are coming into an awareness of your effect on others, Scorpio. What is even better, though, is that you are also realizing more and more of your true nature. You, minus insecurity or pretense – that is an awesome vision as you prepare for warp-speed evolution. There is still work to be done, and the stars have created a grand time and space for you to fulfill your need for introspection. Take time for sacred space now; if you can, even steal a few days of privacy to make plans for the upcoming months. “Less is more” is your best theme for September.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20)
Yours is the sign of freedom and happy endings, yet every Sagittarian I know has taken on great responsibility. The Zohar, (which is a group of ancient Hebrew books) assigns the rainbow to Sagittarius. Keep this mystical shield with you always, because your spirit and lightheartedness are inspirational. The stars ask you one hard question, though – we know you strive to be honest in your dealings with others, but, are you being honest with yourself? Reinvention is as constant as your rainbow, and leads you to the pot of gold.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 19)
The climate is just right for you, Capricorn. Earthy and steady with a little bit of excitement; just enough to keep you interested. Jupiter trine Saturn in mutual earth signs on the 8th keeps you grounded. And Mars conjunct Venus in Libra on the 11th, in your house of career and public image ratchets up the approval rating. Dig in with the elbow grease early in the month, so that you can relax after the 24th when Mercury is retrograde. And, mis - information pays a visit on the 19th; be careful, I met her at a party once – she was a real scream.
Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17)
Look outside of your usual box, Aquarius; new and improved ways of earning money are all around. This looks either like self employment, or a new and improved way of managing your finances. You have something other people want, but be prepared for swift action in order to take full advantage of coming opportunities. The bottom line is really about your evolving sense of self; you want and need more freedom and autonomy than ever before. The good news is that you do not have to sacrifice hours of your life on a never ending treadmill. A messenger arrives on the 9th; have your proposal ready by the 11th.
Pisces – (February 18 – March 19)
Completions lead to new beginnings, Pisces. And so turns the circle of life, on and on. Revolution is a bold word, yet one which can be taken on many levels. It might refer to a new hairstyle, or a new lifestyle. Where does this word enter into your reality? You are granted insight into your spiritual mission, which is to reveal that which is concealed. This glimpse of greater things to come can leave you inspired, or deeply unfulfilled. Remember these moments of clarity which arise now, Pisces. Your season of change will bear fruit as surely as apples ripen on the trees.
