Star Wisdom | April 2011

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Every month is like a new year these days, or a new lifetime! This is it — are you going to be your true Self or are you going to let fear convince you to keep playing small? Use the Mercury retrograde in your sign to let go of all of those false, limiting ideas about yourself that stand between you and a life fully lived.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…April activates your unconscious mind more powerfully than perhaps at any other time in this life. Your soul can make you whole, but only if you get serious about learning how to meditate, contemplate and self-examine. Intend to see your whole self, not just the parts you’ve labeled “good” or “strong.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…You’ve just completed a long cycle of career growth and you might find your goals are changing in surprising — even shocking — ways. With Uranus in your 11th House for the next seven years, both your dreams for the future and the people you want to spend your time with are going through a radical shift. Find at least one person or group that shares your new interests this month.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Some people are going to be shocked by the changes in you. Some people are going to whisper you’ve finally lost your mind. Some people are going to claim you can’t possibly pull it off. You know what the greatest thing is about all of this? You really, maybe for the first time ever, don’t care. You know what you’ve got to do and nothing is going to stop you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You are seeing the world — and the people around you — in the context of a much bigger picture. This new vision gives you the confidence to do what’s right, even if some of the others don’t fully understand the enormity of the changes we’re going through as a society. Trust your guidance.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You are finally realizing that what you hate about your partner or friend is a reflection of what you have repressed within your own soul. When you actually feel the truth of these words in your own experience, you are blessed with choices you didn’t have a moment ago. Make the choice to live a little larger and dare a little more.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Your biggest challenge this month is to refrain from absolutely torching that person or those people who have been taking you for granted, trampling your boundaries and mistaking your kindness for weakness. Recognize that people only take advantage of you if you allow it in your own psyche. Use your anger to set stronger, clearer boundaries than ever before.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You must activate your sacred warrior self this month. With Mars, Jupiter and Uranus blasting energy into your 6th House, you have to get super-focused on how you manage your energy. This may involve a radical change in exercise or diet or it may mean getting fanatical about your schedule and your focus at work. A long-term strategy will keep you from overdoing it initially and then fading out.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…The difference between Armageddon and the Promised Land is what we do with our creativity and our love energy. You can literally re-create your Universe with your passion this year. April challenges you to break the bonds of shame, fear and family karma that tempt you to hold back, swallow it down, and suck it in. You are not a consumer, you are a creator.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…The elephant in the room is the emotional pollution that keeps us all trapped in cycles of rage, addiction and powerlessness. This month challenges you to come clean with yourself about how hard it was for you growing up and the negative emotional patterns you still carry. It’s time to clear that old trauma so you can finally feel at home in the world.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Your mind is blown open. You know what you see, but you’re not sure how to say it so other people can share the view. April condenses the challenge of your entire lifetime into the span of a month. So you don’t have to get it perfect. Just experiment as soulfully as possible and learn from the feedback you get. And remember, your words have extraordinary power.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Saying you don’t care about money is like saying you don’t care about water or sunshine. Money is a form of energy and it’s one of the most potent symbols we share. You are being offered the chance to make much more of it; use this month to find your motivation and dismantle the old programs that keep you from allowing it to flow to you.
