Mercury retrograde and eclipses in Aries and Scorpio unleash tremendous power that we can use to break old patterns and rejuvenate our lives.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…This is one of those moments where you either step into who you really are or let the rejections and disappointments of the past swallow you up. Fortunately, you see with astute clarity that there’s nobody to blame for what’s already happened; we each create the Universe we believe in. This insight empowers you to take back your authority and transform a key relationship with love.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Part of you believes that if you just work harder, then the other people in your life will finally give you what you need. You work hard enough. What you need to understand is that the old anger and fear you’re so afraid of seeing in yourself must, by nature, be reflected back to you in relationships. This old stuff isn’t bad; it’s just there. Once you let yourself feel it, it’s free to dissolve.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You are incredibly persuasive this month, so use your power for good. If you catch yourself manipulating others with your words, recognize it as a sign that you’re not living your dream. When you’re fully aligned with your highest vision, you don’t have to persuade or manipulate anyone. You automatically attract exactly what you need.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…An opportunity to step up onto the big stage strikes from out of the blue. This may come as a thrilling invitation to leave your comfort zone and embark on a new adventure. Or it could show up as a moment of brilliant clarity about who you really are and what you want out of life. Go courageously in the direction of your dreams.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…A battle is raging for control of your mind. On one side are those old voices that advocate the false security of playing small. On the other, your own true voice, which knows you came here to light up the world. Hold your ground by resolutely feeding your mind with inspirational words and thoughts. But know that allowing yourself to create — and play! — is what wins the war. Exuberance is beauty.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…There is no lack in the Universe, other than the lack created by billions of repeated thoughts of lack. Whatever feels unjust in your life is only the result of a stubborn habit of thinking either that there isn’t enough for you, or that you don’t deserve it. Those are the devil’s most successful lies. You have permission to stop believing them starting this instant.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Like lightning striking, a sudden realization illuminates your relationship to the world. This is one of those thoughts that can change your entire life. You’ll know when it hits, because you’ll see exactly how — and why — you’ve created all the relationship (or money) drama you’ve grown so tired of. And you’ll know that you now hold the sacred key to creating the life you want.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You’re about to emerge from the deep, dark forest you walked into two years ago. Remember that the story you choose to tell about your time in the wilderness carries great power. You’re persuasive — you can seduce people with tales of darkness and suffering. Or you can empower yourself and enlighten them by framing yourself as the transformed returning hero.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…It feels like you’ve been teleported into an alternate dimension where entire tribes of cool, caring people want you to be exactly who you are. In fact, you see a cloud of sadness around them when you go against your creative instincts and fall into that old habit of dumbing yourself down to please others. Go forth and co-create!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…Imagine you grew up in a town that’s frequently rocked by earthquakes. You hated having to periodically start over and rebuild, but you couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Then one day you decided to leave home. To your shock, you found a new town where you could thrive at a level you’d only dreamed of before. It’s time to escape the confines of your parents’ beliefs and live your dream.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Your position as visionary futurist and spokesperson of the global consciousness revolution requires you to continue making quantum leaps in your own awareness. Good mantras this month: I know the things that I know and I can trust myself completely and I only choose thoughts that create the life I want.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…A slight shift in perspective could change your whole life, illuminating the inner blockage that has kept you from enjoying the financial freedom your soul desires. Prepare for this insight examining the ways you habitually try to protect yourself by keeping other people (and their abundance) at arm’s length. You’re so much stronger now. Tear down the walls and let the world in.
