March comes in like a lamb and leaves like a lion. With the Sun in dreamy Pisces through the 20th, life feels more like a reality show than like reality. A sense of urgency kicks in when the Sun enters Aries, compelling us to take a stand and act with purpose.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Use the first three weeks of March to do two things. First, get real about what you really want from your relationship. Second, discover what payoff you get for playing the “victim of fate” role. You could have the power to move mountains once the Sun enters Aries. But the role-playing you can’t access this power; only the authentic you can.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…What do you see when you look down the road a few years? Is this future a vague wish or something you’ve already claimed as fact in your heart? Life supports you abundantly this month in restructuring your relationships and fortifying your mind so that achieving your goals is not a question of if but a matter of when.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…A new vision of what’s possible is percolating this month. But you’ve got to figure out which of your many dreams and desires mean the most to you. Think of it like looking through a book of art. Which of the pictures in the pages of your mind repeatedly show up clear and vibrant? That’s where you want to focus your energy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Jupiter returns to direct motion in your sign, pushing you to expand your self-concept and enlarge your sphere of influence. As you become aware of a restrictive belief that causes you to shrink when you could be growing, you come to a choice point. Will you wish things were different? Or will you make the firm decision that you are going to change that thought pattern?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…People are lining up to collaborate with you and you can sense there’s big money to be made. But there’s that fear of one more person letting you down or taking advantage of your good nature. You can break that cycle this month; start by making amends with that younger you who learned that playing small and selling yourself short were prerequisites for love.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…A new relationship — or a fresh start in an old one — convinces you your dreams really could come true. To fulfill this promise, you’ll have to acknowledge how your fixed self-definition holds you back from the love and abundance you want. Redefine yourself and renew your enthusiasm by connecting with a higher purpose that nurtures your spirit.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…You’re being challenged to acknowledge a pattern of self-abandonment. Make the connection between habitually denying your own needs, then rewarding yourself with energy-draining addictions. Once you see this clearly, you’ll find it much harder to keep betraying your soul. And you’ll reclaim the energy you need to create the life of your dreams.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Someone who really gets you is giving you a glimpse of what it would feel like to be able to relax into total self-acceptance. Not the angry “I can deal” kind of acceptance, but the kind that comes from seeing the big picture and how seamlessly you fit into it. P.S. Your creativity is flowing like crazy now, and art is your path to wisdom.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Your soul invites you to come home to yourself via an exceptional insight into what really happened in your family, and the lengths everyone went to in order to pretend it didn’t. What a relief to finally forgive yourself for all the things that were never your fault in the first place! Of course, this atonement opens up your creative power in a huge way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You can marshal so many reasons not to trust, but how much good has that done you? Sure you could get hurt again, but staying safely on the sidelines isn’t the point of life. So much love and abundance wants to enter your life in the next three months. Open your mind and your heart will follow.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…You’ve learned so much about who you really are in the last month. You’re more self-possessed than you’ve been in ages. No surprise people are queuing up to spend time with you! Now it’s time to put your formidable intelligence to work creating the money or support you’ll need for the next logical step on your life’s journey.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…This is the month you finally allow yourself to wonder, “If I’m not enjoying it, why am I still doing it?” The Pisces New Moon on the 1st is revolutionary for you, urging you to set yourself free and take back ownership of your life. Your creativity is almost unlimited now. Stop using other people as an excuse for holding it back. Live in joy!
