brainardLife feels much more solid. Connect with Nature, be in your body and ground your new reality in the beauty of the physical world.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Never forget how strong you are. One reason you can be so attached to survival scenarios is that they allow you to test your strength. But remember: pushing your limits and heading into the great unknown of your potential offers a far more rewarding challenge. Do your research, trust your gut and move in the direction of your dreams.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…The Scorpio Full Moon emphasizes your two-year Saturn lesson about relationships. Saturn wants you to master personal integrity and vulnerability — the prerequisites to experiencing real intimacy. When you know your needs and limits and can communicate your feelings honestly and openly, relationships get a whole lot easier and more abundant.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You might feel like that girl who calls herself the human trampoline. When life starts knocking you this way and that, consciously choose to relax and flow. You are bouncing into Graceland, and you’ll get there with fewer bruises if you let yourself enjoy the ride. Use the Gemini New Moon on the 28th to let go of lame old self-concepts and start fresh. “If you will it, it is no dream.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…So much is possible now, but you have to believe in your unique vision and your unique dream. Make the effort to connect with people who not only see life the way you do but are also actively doing something about it. These connections feed your soul and nurture your spirit. They also give you the courage to make mistakes. Remember, if you want to succeed more, fail more.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…For the last two years, teacher planet Saturn has been trying to help you build a solid psychological foundation. Remember that you’re not just digging a hole. You’re building the stage from which you will launch your outrageously beautiful and provocatively enlightening creations into the hearts of your adoring public.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…It’s such a cliché that it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you think about what happens that makes all the difference. But if you could really grasp that this month, you would change your life forever. Money comes and goes and other people’s behavior fluctuates, but none of that can affect your outlook on life unless you allow it. You can have — and do have — so much more.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Don’t give yourself away. Or, if you can’t help it, then at least forgive yourself and take yourself back. The relationship challenges this month could be quite intense at times, but they’re designed to help you build real self-esteem. When you have self-esteem, you’re free to make mistakes. When you’re free to make mistakes, you’re free to create. And when you’re free to create, joy most often ensues.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…With your ruling planet Mars roto-rooting away in your subconscious since December, this has been a challenging year. But it’s also the year when you can shed a lifetime’s worth of fear and emotional baggage and put an end to your pattern of self-inflicted wounds. Don’t give up, because you’re almost there. Mantra: I am the author of my life.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…“Every man’s wisdom is peculiar to his own individuality,” said William Blake. Pay less attention to the capital “T” truth in May and be willing to experiment with your energy. Instead of limiting your boundless creativity to the size of old dreams, trust your own peculiar wisdom and allow your individuality to lead you to newer and more expansive visions.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…Your special brand of kindness in action attracts a potential co-conspirator into your sphere. The challenge is to make room in your life without losing sight of your own goal. Out of all the recent unrest a new self is coalescing and when you get quiet you can feel the power. Still, wouldn’t it be nice to share the load with someone who believes in your vision?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…As long as you keep your mind right, this should be a good, solid month. Don’t try to hang on to each individual spark of brilliance flashing through your mind. Instead, relax your vision and sense the overall pattern. A new conception of who you can be and what you can do with your life is coming together. Be willing to challenge that old stubborn belief that says you can’t have it all.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Who wrote the rules that define what you can do with your time, love, and energy? Now is the time to seriously investigate whether or not you want to continue obeying those people. Almost anything is possible now, but you can’t go somewhere you don’t believe exists. You’re a believer — so believe in you! Mantra: My soul is here for its own joy.
