Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Don’t be surprised if you’re wrestling with doubts of all kinds, even those you thought were well behind you. Certain cycles are like that, and every time we move forward on the Wheel of Life, we pass the same cardinal points on our personal compass—the red threads of important karmic themes that need attention. So rather than be afraid to ask questions, be willing to admit that there’s always something more to learn.
Taurus April 20-May 20
It’s a choice: Succumb to negative thinking and let anxious thoughts disturb your peace of mind, or align with a positive attitude that will help you assess what still needs tweaking. Sounds like a no-brainer, but choosing to be open to growth requires refining how you take care of yourself. I’m not suggesting selfishness as a solution. I’m suggesting that you nurture the facets of your life where care is most needed.
Gemini May 21-June 21
You’ve been trying to figure out how to structure your relationships—which are the most important personal partnerships---spouses, children and friends. And you’re also trying to prioritize professional alliances—partners, clients and co-workers. Rather than concentrating on where you’ve failed others or others have been disappointing, focus on heartfelt connections with fellow travelers who share a similar sensibility and then allow those relationships to flourish.
Cancer June 22-July 22
I know you can already feel a big shift in the air, but before you move into the next phase, take a moment to marshal your forces—especially your sensitivities to others. The next cycle is all about partnerships, and while that may stimulate your idealism about connecting with others, your first and primary relationship is with yourself. Focus first on what you need to feel whole and centered from the inside out, and that self-knowledge will make relating to others much easier.
Leo July 23-August 22
You’re facing two challenges: (1) Being aware of just how much you’ve learned about your personal creative process during the last two years. (2) Recognizing that despite any external conflict, there’s a real potential for feeling at home with yourself. As you continue to face these challenges, release the need to blame yourself or others for your current circumstances. Take responsibility for where you are in life and you’ll be prepared for what happens next.
Virgo August 23-September 22
There’s still more to say and it’s important for you to speak from the heart, especially with significant others, personal and professional. This is not about airing dirty laundry or taking someone’s inventory. The focus is on heartfelt communication that’s motivated by a sincere desire to shift the way everyone’s needs are met—not just your own. Stay focused and clear on what you most want to share and your intention will be met with mutual respect.
Libra September 23-October 22
Continue to be conscientious in all your interactions and choose your words with care, not because you need to be cautious but because everyone will benefit if you are precise about what you feel and why. Yes, there are issues that still need to be resolved, but some of the other people involved may still need time to process their changes. Rather than push, simply allow. Hold fast to the possibility of healing and those you love will eventually respond in kind.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
I know you are trying to figure out quite a few situations, some of which are sticky and stuck in old reactive patterns, and you can’t seem to find a new view. If I were you, I would surrender the old ways of thinking about these areas by turning them upside down—at least while you contemplate what do to. I’m not necessarily advising radical action. I’m simply suggesting that the best way through the stagnation might be a radical release of previous assumptions.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
Your attempts at alchemy are working, but what’s needed now is a clearer vision of what you want to create next. Some of this requires being specific about the people you want to draw in, so don’t hesitate to be precise about who you want to work with. It’s also important to have a strong intention about what it is you’re building. While it’s necessary to allow the universe to respond to your vision, it’s also essential to know what you want.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
It would be wise to be the Fool—and if you aren’t familiar with this symbol, you might want to research the Tarot, where you’re sure to find many images of this powerful archetype. The Fool embodies the energy of innocence and trust, but there is nothing foolish nor foolhardy about this approach. Its actions are based on the confidence that at all times we are supported by spirit—and that confidence will be a valuable asset moving forward.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
You’re about to enter a phase of deep contemplation, so it would be completely appropriate if you’re feeling the need to hermitize and withdraw from the hustle and bustle of the external world. Of course, you also like to celebrate, so that could create a little conflict, especially this time of year. But really, it’s an obvious choice: Honor the need for quiet. You have decisions to make and a quiet mind will help you hear your intuition clearly.
Pisces February 19-March 20
You might feel as if the world is your oyster—and it is in some areas because you are extremely charismatic at this moment in time and people are drawn to your light. Make the most of this attracting energy, but be clear about what you want to accomplish. Yes, the attention feels good, but attention for its own sake has elusive benefits. Attention that’s channeled into specific plans and projects will ultimately yield positive results.
