Star Wisdom | March 2011


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…That pain or fear or frustration you feel is your Authentic Self trying to break down the walls of false beliefs and limiting self-constructs that keep you trapped in a life that is less than you deserve. Yes, change often hurts, but this kind of change will free you into a life worth living passionately and enthusiastically.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…
Your friends, networks and community are the key to your happiness and success this month. You have resources, so don’t play the isolation game. One of your connections may come through with major assistance on a creative, artistic or child-related matter. But you’ve got to get connected first.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Put your energy into activities that build your career, status and reputation. With the Sun and Mars in your 10th House, this is a great month to put your products or services out there. You naturally want to communicate about what you’re doing, building, or making, so stop making excuses and just do it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…You start to get intuitive nudges about new career or “public self” opportunities right at the beginning of the month. Between self-abasement and ego inflation lies a path of abundant growth. You’re going to have to grow past your old ideas of safety and security, but the rewards for that risk are great.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…How you spend your energy is a big theme in March. You may need to renegotiate your agreements with your lover, spouse, or other collaborators in order to restore an equitable flow. Doing this opens you up to benefiting from your relationships, rather than feeling drained by them. That in itself will make a huge difference in what you accomplish this year.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You may need to let someone leave your life near the New Moon on March 4. Use this energy to look back on your relationship patterns from the last year; in order to attract the opportunities and people you deserve, you need to get clear on what you need. You’ve been learning so much about yourself in the last few months; March shows you how much you’ve grown.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Work and health issues in the first half of the month are trying to teach you how to manage your energy better. You’ve got some incredible relationship mojo starting around the spring equinox, as the Sun, Mercury and Uranus radically energize your 7th House. Get clear on the kind of person you want to show up in your life and then open yourself to extravagant surprises.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Life is trying to connect you with your gift, that thing that you love to do and that also enriches the world. If you don’t know what this is yet, allow yourself to remember something you used to love in childhood, but that the grown-ups told you was a waste of time, living in a fantasy world, etc. Finding the adult version of this energy will lead you straight to your gift.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Something needs to be taken care of at home. Go ahead and focus on fixing this issue in the first half of the month. You need your home/family space to be what Hemingway called “a clean and well-lit place” — a safe foundation from which to launch the creative, adventurous journeys of self-exploration that are calling you in March and April.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…Watch your words this week. You’re more motivated than usual to communicate your views to others this month, but you need to be aware of the emotional elements that are pushing you to express your views so strongly. With a little self-awareness, however, this is a great energy for writing, teaching or otherwise influencing the world with your thoughts.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…You might incur more than your share of expenses with Mars in your 2nd House, but Mars also gives you the energy and drive to go out and make more money. Both the Pisces New Moon and the Virgo Full Moon ask you to get clear on money, resources and what you value in life. Knowing what you need is the first step towards having what you need.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You can make a quantum leap forward this month. Focus on what you really need as far as income, money, resources and support from the Universe. You usually don’t get what you need either because you’re not asking for it, or because you’re not asking the right questions. Learn how to ask for what you want and you’ll probably get it.

  1. DK- For Pisces you state to, “learn how to ask for what you want and you will probably get it”. HOW? I guess I am learning a lesson from this. I deep down inside know I deserve the best this universe has to offer, but was taught young that I didn’t because I wasn’t important. Do I just ask?

    Love and light…

  2. Abraham-Hicks have a great framework for this. They say you learn how to ask for what you want by asking for what you think you want. Then when that shows up, you calibrate your desires by seeing the parts you really didn’t want and omitting them the next time around.

    It’s a great question. My personal short answer would be, what do you really love to do? What is the activity or pursuit that when you’re engaged in it, time seems to disappear. Start there and work outward. Is this helpful?

    Working through negative beliefs is a key part of the process, too. Have you listened to my Quantum Leap audio meditation? It has a three-part creation formula that answers your question much more deeply. It’s free:
