Aries – (March 20 – April 19)
The best way to meet challenges is by using your special gifts – a hard head and formidable horns. Oh yes, you will see through that veil of illusion! Somebody has over promised, but under delivered; this was not intentional on their part, rather a situation of shifting opportunities and a change in priorities. Face this situation and move on quickly; by the end of the month you are sublimely free, and that is a feeling that money cannot buy. Expect the best to come your way on the 26th and 27th when a new friend shows you the good things of life. Key days this month are July 6th, 15th, and the 21st.
Taurus – (April 20 – May 20)
This is a great month for you Taurus! Your ruling planet Venus enters your money sector of Gemini on the 5th, and on the 27th she forms a gracious trine to Jupiter. The only disadvantage to these good planetary aspects is that sometimes when something is so blatantly easy, we can overlook the flow. Don’t make that mistake! This is a season of harvest; you have planted the seeds and this is your chance to reap the rewards of your efforts. Granted, it does require some adjustments on your part; but like your neighboring sign, Aries, you have a set of horns and a hard head – don’t hesitate to use them.
Gemini – (May 21 – June 20)
Take it straight up and to the top, Gemini – nothing should stop you now. The Cosmic gateway has opened a door to opportunity; are you ready to step outside and expand your horizons? Knowledge is your currency, so this is a great time to take classes and gather facts. Synthesize all that you learn, and create your own school of wisdom teachings. The advice of others is just their opinion. Heed your own counsel now. Venus enters Gemini on the 5th, and Mars follows on the 11th. These personal planets in your sign lend energy and charisma. The fear that you feel on the 25th is only a passing dark cloud; the sun shines again by the 27th, and I see you smiling.
Cancer – (June 21 – July 21)
This is a month of irrevocable endings and bright new beginnings, Cancer. Let’s address the endings, first. Perhaps it feels long over-due. You have performed to the best of your ability, gone the extra mile and yet all you feel is “been there – done that.” Your rewards are coming, but not in the form that you might think. If it causes you to wiggle and squirm, then things are right on track. And, this off centered energy transfers to your body, too. Maintain a regular exercise schedule and eat what you know are the good foods for your body. The good news is- that’ it’s all good. There is nothing you should do differently – just be you, and allow the flower to open.
Leo – (July 22 – August 22)
Revel in the comfort of your friends and associates, Leo. Like some of the other Sun signs, this is a season of letting go. You are well served by a crowd of supporters, so there is a taste of honey in any bitter tonic which you must ingest. Yet, you feel alone even in a crowd of admirers. Poetry and creative expression is a natural outlet for your solitude, and you can produce some of your best work now. Lead with your heart, and the feet will follow. You are a private dancer this month, Leo. July is mostly about putting on a show for other people, but August will be all about you!
Virgo – (August 23 – September 22)
You’ve had to make some adjustments over the past few months; but I predict that you’ve also had some amazing good luck. Adaptability is the key word here. Slowly, you begin to see yourself in a new light. A new skill presents its calling card. Take this on like a matador facing a bull; with elegance and grace combined with training and precision. Of course, a little glitz and show makes it more fun! Get the word out now, because next month it’s back into the trenches. In the meantime, you have a whole new crowd of supporters who truly appreciate your talents- plan your coming out party for the 27th.
Libra – (September 23 – October 21)
It began on your birthday last year, Libra. You conceived a child in 2008, and now it time to give birth. For some this is a living breathing baby; for others, it is a child of your creativity. Whatever the form, it is ready to take on life now. To hold back would be like trying to stop a baby in the birth canal – that only works for so long, and then it just pops out anyway. Take the path of Tao, and let it flow naturally. You have a fire breathing dragon on your side now; accept his protection and maximize the good fortune that he brings.
Scorpio – (October 22 – November 21)
Obstacles are removed, Scorpio. It’s just that simple. The most troubling situation is the one going on in your brain; here, you are dealing with overload and blown circuits. Count to ten, and then go see a body-mind therapist to see if you can get your head and your heart on the same page. Everything is crumbling at once, but recognize that this is merely a wave of energy which is quickly followed by another swell of support and magnificence. Let the waves sweep in to do their good work. You do not need a safe harbor, rather a sound vessel to ride the ocean.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20)
The planets have you walking a fine line between confusion and creativity, Sag. Your best antidote for this is to go somewhere new for inspiration. This is a good month to step outside of your everyday routines and go for that distinctive 9th house Sagittarian overview. With the Solar eclipse of July 7th falling in your 2nd house of finances and self worth, it may seem that somebody else gets what you want, but recognize that this is only a superficial and temporary outlook. You have to give to receive now, and the price of admission may feel dear. Remember what I said about that mini-vacation. Take some time and remove yourself from the day to day situation to gain a vantage point.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 19)
Money is coming, Capricorn. I know I have said that before, but it still holds true for you. Transform you wall of fear and doubt into a shield of confidence and strength on the 9th. Hold tight on the 10th, and see what you can pick up on the 16th or the 18th. There are some great deals in your vicinity. The eclipses of this month are asking you to let go of people who no longer resonate with your highest good. This is old stuff – just move on. Actually, you are also releasing an older version of yourself, so welcome the new you. This is a person I’m sure you will love and cherish for many years to come.
Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17)Your are on the receiving end of a magnificent trine between the benefactor planets Jupiter and Venus. The exact date is July 27th, but recognize that this energy has been building for quite some time. The key phrase for this planetary aspect is: Obstacles removed, and the way is cleared for rapid growth! However, read this carefully. Trines between benefic planets can be tricky because they leave us feeling so laissez faire that we miss the opportunities. Work it, baby, and then you will taste the sweet reward of success and the transformation which you require.
Pisces – (February 18 – March 19)
For those of you who have children living in the home, your fledgling baby is ready to leave the nest now. Let them fly free. For others, it may be the fulfillment of a long held dream for your own freedom. But, there is a secret sorrow to letting go of something you thought you wanted out of your life. Suddenly, you remember only the good qualities and forget the irritations. Good news arrives on the 16th. Prepare to put your plans in motion July 22 through the 25th.
