Star Wisdom: A New Vibration for 2013


stars4A new vibration on the planet calls us to let go of the past and dare to live creative, joyful lives.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…January brings you several opportunities to step into a bigger public role. In order to seize these opportunities, you need to be willing to let go of a part of your personality that is stuck in the past. Start by owning the dream of your life and aligning your creativity and passion with that goal.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You can make real progress towards your life goals, but you need to be working with people who have integrity and who share your philosophy on life. It helps if you know what you believe, and that’s where a consistent, committed spiritual practice comes in. Seeing a core limiting belief more clearly than ever before allows you to make a big leap forward.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Money and relationships continue to challenge you in the first half of the month. Ask yourself what you really, really need — and what it means to share fairly. The Sun and your ruling planet Mercury light up your 9th House of spirituality after the 19th, bringing welcome insight and a much lighter vibration. A miracle is only a change in perception.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Remember that your ability to achieve your goals is directly related to how much life energy you have at your disposal. People who drain your energy not only aren’t helping you, they’re actively holding you back from the success and happiness you desire. Don’t blame them; challenge yourself to respect your soul mission and set appropriate boundaries.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…The systems, discipline and routines you implement in January are key to accomplishing your goals for the year. The Sun and Mercury both shift into your relationship house on the 19th, bringing you positive partnership opportunities. The Full Moon in your sign on the 26th challenges you to step into the truth of who you really are, beyond your personal story.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You’re determined to regain your enthusiasm and feel better about yourself in 2013, so start the year off by putting regular time and energy into activities that make you feel good. Remember that it takes a small initial investment of energy to overcome inertia and get your creativity flowing. It’s OK to start small — as long as you start.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…You begin the year with a very inward focus. Whether you’re dealing with a home or family situation or just trying to get your emotional bearings, give yourself the liberty of easing slowly into the new year. Once the Sun moves into your 5th House on the 19th your creative, social side comes out of hiding. You could meet an influential collaborator near the Full Moon on the 26th.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You need to raise your communication to the highest vibrational level possible. Can you imagine how your life would change if you completely ceased complaining? Try it this month — if nothing else, this exercise will show you clearly where your thoughts have gotten stuck in the past. The Full Moon on the 26th brings a career opportunity or highlights a life goal in a way that helps you transcend some old family karma.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…The connection between your relationships and your financial situation becomes clearer than it has ever been. See how every interaction you have with another person is either increasing abundance in the world or draining energy. This understanding could make you very wealthy over the next fifteen years, so don’t give it short shrift.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…In this Great Transition we are going through, you are the builder. Your challenge is to align your systematic, grounded approach with the immanent reality of the new world that is trying to be born. There are so many opportunities for you this month and in the years ahead, but you cannot afford to stay stuck in the past. Seek out situations and environments that enable you to use your worldly skills to build a bridge to the future.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Don’t judge the year ahead by its first three weeks. You start 2013 with several planets in your 12th House of the deep unconscious mind, indicating a need to retreat from the world and connect with your inner vision. Once the Sun enters your sign on the 19th, the world looks big and bright again. The Full Moon on the 26th brings a great relationship opportunity with someone who really gets you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Start the year off working on your new 5-Year Plan. Tune in to what you long to accomplish or experience. Then look systematically at what needs to change in your life to enable you to achieve those goals. Pay special attention to your social and professional connections. Finding your tribe is key right now.
