Taurus (April 20 – May 20) — Happy birthday Taurus! This month is transformational with the Solar Eclipse in your sign! Change can be scary for you, but you’ll feel excited to adventure into a new way of being you! Jupiter also changes signs, so you’ll find your intuition deepening. Even a little bit of meditation each day links you with inner wisdom you’ll come to rely on! You’ll be open to a new spirituality and abundance. Trust your heart even if it causes conflict with someone else’s wishes.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) — Mercury retrograde in your sign is good! It joins forces with the Solar Eclipse to empower your intuition. Jupiter’s change of sign brings new friends and activities. Have fun and explore your talents and creativity! The Full Moon might bring issues with a partner, especially in areas of sexuality. Meditate on releasing shame around sex and bonding. Don’t let another person’s fears (or your own!) keep you from connecting at depth.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) — You can have a huge career breakthrough! Be sure to follow your dreams. Give them encouragement during meditation time as if they were little kids. You’ll be blown away at what can manifest! Relationships can be challenging with the Full Moon. Be sure you’re not projecting old family issues onto your partner. These patterns can be deeply unconscious, so take a breath when emotional and get re-centered. Ask for insights from your intuitive self and they’ll be revealed during this Mercury retrograde.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) — Reconnect with your spirituality! Try a new form of meditation or yoga. You can re-invent your viewpoints that fit who you are now and also urge you forward for more growth. Respect your body as a temple for your soul. Plan meals and eat well. Exercise. Praise your body. Practice stress reduction techniques. You can also get in touch with peripheral acquaintances who will evolve into wonderful friends!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) — This month’s New Moon Eclipse jumps starts your spirituality! Let go of criticism about how poorly you meditate or practice yoga. Just make efforts with self-compassion and you’ll be amazed at the results. Your intuition will grow and you’ll feel peaceful and optimistic. If you have financial or debt issues, have the courage to face things head on and make a plan to move toward greater solvency. In relationships, stand your ground for the amount of time or intimacy your desire. Don’t be ashamed of your needs!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) — The New Moon Eclipse heals issues regrading sexuality and intimacy. Painful memories of being hurt or betrayed can be soothed. Meditate on the sacredness of bonding. Be willing to open your heart to appropriate people who respect your love! With Mercury retrograde, return to spiritual practices that have worked in the past and explore them again. Also, go back to an eating and exercise plan that is effective that you can live with. No punitive diets or overly demanding workouts!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) — It’s an amazing relationship month! You can heal troublesome issues in a current partnership. Meditate for guidance on removing challenging snags in your subconscious that interfere with deep connections. If single, you can meet a new love who brings excitement and awakens your heart! Healthwise, be careful about falling into old patterns about poor eating habits. Respect your body with good nutrition, fun exercise and enough rest.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) — This month’s Mercury retrograde can bring relationship challenges. If someone comes back from the past, think twice about starting up again. What woufld have really changed? Set very strong limits if you do try again. If partnered already, don’t take recurrence of “old stuff” lightly. You can be so mach happier if you confront the tough issues. But it’s hard for you to be “difficult”. Take the risk to “rock the boat” and see how much lighter you feel!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) — This month’s eclipses revitalize relationships! Pay attention to your wants and not just needs. Having your desires fulfilled is important. Make sure bonds are playful as well as sensible. Allow your Capricorn inner child to come out! In meditation, focus on loving statements of self-compassion. Your inner critic depletes your energy and leads to lower immunity, less abundance, more stress and drains the enjoyment of life. Pay attention to those negative voices and strop them in their tracks!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) — You deserve the best! This month’s Mercury retrograde exposes toxic beliefs from childhood. Once exposed, you can now dispose of them! Meditate on statements that seem “true”. Understand how they are actually random concepts that have been hardwired into your brain. You can program yourself with new truths, based upon the beliefs you do want to have! Seek out new friends, hobbies and if single, romantic partners. Enjoy how your spiritual work has created a different magnetism around you and you’re building a new life!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Much like your Aquarius pals, it’s time to break negative beliefs rooted in your subconscious! Make a list of the mean voices in your head. In meditation, see yourself a warrior goddess defeating each and every one of them! With fierce Mars in your sign right now you can claim power over your inner kingdom! You’ll be able to release old resentments at yourself and others. You’ll have a burst of physical energy, as well as a fountain of optimism!
Aries (March 21 – April 19) — Venus and Mars are in your sign, increasing self-love and appreciation. Relationships go smoothly, and if single, you can start a passionate partnership! This month’s eclipses help you clear out financial issues. Facing them head on will be a relief. You can even make travel plans or a major purchase stress free, since you may find you have more than you thought! Re-commit to a few minutes of meditation each day in a quiet section of your home. Quality over quantity!
