Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’re working hard, you want to get into fighting shape, and you’re determined to master this relationship thing. You know what would help lighten your load? A weekly meet-up with a progressive, like-minded friend (or group of friends) who can inspire you and remind you why you’re working so hard in the first place. You’re as good as the company you keep this month.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You’re trying to get a home or family situation in order at the start of the month so you can focus on the big picture. You’ve got lots of career mojo happening now, so you don’t have to be in a hurry. The most important thing is to be yourself. Comparing your life or your timeline to what others have done just puts you in a negative space. Trust your direction, one step at a time.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You start a new project or decide to take a fresh approach to your career. This could be the Big One, but you’re really going to have to trust your vision. Half-measures won’t get it. That said, staying grounded is equally vital to your success. Sinking your roots deep into the everyday experience of your life gives you the freedom to shine now.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)…It’s all in your mind. Really. So what can you do to tap into the stream of good intentions that will make your life more like what you see in your dreams? First, respect the power of your thoughts. Don’t let negative habits slide, telling yourself it doesn’t really matter. Second, consciously court your Higher Self. Make it a priority at least once a day to turn down the world and tune in to that wise part of you that sees and knows all.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…If you’re thinking about ways to make more money, you’re probably in the wrong place. Your self-esteem – which is key to attracting the money you want – grows when you exercise your creative power. Instead of analyzing potential opportunities, deal with your money worries by singing, making art and dancing them away. I’m serious – try it and see what happens.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You’re learning how to use your aggression as propulsion this month. Master this vital lesson by making a list of all the ways you use anger against yourself. And then develop a plan to stop doing that. A new relationship – or a new beginning in a current one – is on tap mid-month. Visualize your ideal, but leave the rose-colored glasses behind.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Don’t fall prey to the all-or-nothing relationship myth. Your job is to stay true to your core principles, no matter how tempting it might be to fall back into old codependent or thrill-seeking patterns. The partnership opportunities worth pursuing now are the ones you can afford to develop slowly.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You get a career opportunity – or recognition for a job well done – near the Full Moon on the 7th. Recognizing your own value in the market place enables you to see how far you’ve come in learning how to feel safe. Use this sense of security to move into joy in the second half of the month. The New Moon on the 21st challenges you to open your heart and let the energy of your ideals flow into the world.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Slow and steady continues to win the race. You’ve got until June to figure out your career situation, so bear down and get organized. You need a coherent plan and attention to detail; you might benefit from a dispassionate observer who can give you an objective perspective. You’ve got a ton of creative ideas but you might need help grounding them into reality.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You might have to make a tricky financial decision early this month. Visualizing what your life is going to look like mid-summer can help you create a coherent picture and buy yourself the time you need. Someone is willing to invest in you; your challenge is to own what you really want while remaining grounded in the day-to-day.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…And just like that, your life is humming again. After a long spell on the back burner, you’re front and center this month. You get relationship clarity at the Full Moon on the 7th, and you might just see a wish come true. Speaking of wishes, the New Moon on the 21st invites you to name and claim what you need on a money level. Be willing to let go of an income source you’ve outgrown.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…The life you’ve been imagining for yourself lo these many years begins taking shape before your very eyes. “You dreamed it all / And this is your story,” to quote the Talking Heads. You are the dream-master so accept the responsibility of creating the life you truly want.
