Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
The best way through the current strife is to intensify your spiritual practice—whatever that may be. I know what I am about to say may put me at risk for sounding trite, but I don’t care: Only a higher power can provide a broad enough context to make sense of your current situation. Make use of that lens and you’ll find some relief.
Taurus April 20-May 20
You’re still in the midst of a deep transformational process, but this week you have the opportunity to experience a better perspective on just how far you’ve traveled during this process. Don’t be shy about acknowledging the work you’ve done—it’s been a long and winding road, and though you may be a little weary, the fruit of your labor will be worth it.
Gemini May 21-June 21
The first rule of magic: Whatever you focus your attention on becomes your reality. If you worry about finances you’ll generate more worry, not more money. I’m not suggesting magical thinking. I’m advising you to focus your attention on methods with the power to generate a better attitude. Starting or revisiting a gratitude practice will yield positive results.
Cancer June 22-July 22
You’re in an alchemical process, turning personal lead into gold. And while this process isn’t easy, it is a worthwhile endeavor, especially if it helps you find a better balance between work and home. The key to perfecting this blend is the ability to see oppositional forces as complementary—instead of polarizing, synthesize. Synthesis will transform the tension.
Leo July 23-August 22
Don’t be ashamed of wearing your heart on your sleeve—it’s your nature to feel deeply. Just be careful not to indulge those feelings in pessimistic acts toward yourself or others. Yes, finding a way to balance your deep concerns with your need for joy is a difficult task, but you can do it, especially if you continue to rely on your innate generosity of spirit.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Your cups do runneth over—all of them—and you’re feeling abundant in every way. Now the challenge is figuring out how to share that abundance with others. Here’s a hint: Most of us learn by example. So put your best self to work modeling what it looks like when the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of life are working together, balanced and harmonious.
Libra September 23-October 22
Soon, dear Libra, we will stop talking about relationship issues, but for now, you are still in the thick of it, figuring out how to balance your needs with the needs of others. I know this is a life’s work, but Uranus upped the ante for the last nearly seven years, and it still has a few lessons to share. Take a deep breath and continue to work—eventually you’ll make the progress you desire.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Attitude is almost always a choice, and because you are extraordinarily sensitive, making certain choices can be problematic. As always, my advice is to follow your heart, even if that means making difficult decisions that may disappoint significant others. And the reason I say that is simple: When you’re unhappy or ill at ease in a particular environment, your heart suffers. And that’s never good for the body, heart, mind, or soul.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
It’s easy to forget just how constant change is…well…maybe not for you, at least in this particular moment. Lots of things are shifting in your life, and while you generally steer clear of boredom, at moments like this you’re longing for it. Take a deep breath, and just continue to put one foot in front of the other. You don’t see it yet, but you’re almost back to singing ch-ch-ch-changes.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
Read your counterpart, Cancer, above, and add this: Sometimes the best way to find balance is to let go of any attachment to the outcome, and instead, allow the universe to speak to you through symbol and metaphor. You’re right, that’s not as clear cut as you would like. But symbols stir the soul, and right now that’s more important than you realize.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
The balance you’re seeking is best found in the perspective of timelessness—that’s right, don’t hurry through this process. Stay concentrated in the moment on what matters most to you and you’ll realize very quickly that you’ve found the key to maintaining your equilibrium. Yes, turmoil may swirl around you, but you will stay steady.
Pisces February 19-March 20
The antidote for your imbalance is a fresh perspective that is unencumbered by history. I’m not saying the past isn’t important, but sometimes in order to break free from persistent patterns, we need a fresh start—and now would be one of those times for you. Think about how you would handle the situation from your newly gained insights and then apply that wisdom, liberally.
