Star Wisdom: Cosmic Alarm Clock will ring soon

astrologyMercury remains retrograde through the 17th, but the Sun’s entry into Aries on the 20th rings the cosmic alarm clock, as Mars, Venus, Uranus and Pluto team up to send life into hyperdrive.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…To quote the Taoist master and Zen bowler, “the Dude”: Take it easy, man! Use the first part of the month to rest, relax and store up energy, because your life is going to become very kinetic as soon as the spring equinox hits. You’ll need to make an important relationship decision and opportunities for passionate action will suddenly abound.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Rather than fighting the flow, use this time to make new connections with like-minded people and strengthen existing ones. Especially at the end of the month, restrain yourself from forcing the action. If you push too hard, something could snap back and blow up on you. If you content yourself with small gains now, you’ll reap the big rewards when your birthday rolls around.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Opportunity is hovering around you, but it might feel just out of reach. This is not your fault, so don’t be alarmed if you can’t seem to take that next step this month. The atmosphere of indecision is pushing you to get really clear on what you want out of life. Hint: Your big goal should be beautiful enough you’d be willing to work an entire lifetime to realize it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…It’s so important to trust your intuition. If your mind wanders back to “negative” events in the past, allow yourself to re-experience those challenges from your current point of view. Seeing where you are in the context of your life’s journey prepares you for the passionate, almost violent opportunities for growth and expansion that arrive with the spring equinox.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Money and relationship matters remain somewhat murky until Mercury returns to direct motion on the 17th. After that, it’s almost like you’ve stepped into a whole new life. Opportunities for expansion arrive with breathtaking suddenness, forcing you to make quick decisions with long-ranging impact. You must trust your inner guidance above all else.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Give yourself time to figure out the relationship thing. Your normal Spock-like computing style won’t work with Mercury retrograde and Neptune clouding up the picture. Instead, ask your Higher Self for guidance and then distract your rational mind with all the other things that need taking care of. The right solution will find you when you stop looking for it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Remember that self-discipline means becoming a disciple of yourself. To do that, you have to trust your own inner guidance even when it conflicts with others’ advice or society’s wisdom. The explosive Libra Full Moon on the 27th highlights a key relationship and demands that you act from your own integrity, not from your idea of what others expect of you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Ancient wisdom tells us the past, present and future are all happening in the eternal now. This means your inner child is not just a figment of your imagination but a real being whose wounds — as long as they remain unhealed — dictate the experience available to you. March gives you a rare chance to connect with your child self and heal those wounds. Will you take it?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…The family patterns surfacing now could be overwhelming at times, but they also provide opportunity for intense self-realization. A creative explosion awaits you at the spring equinox; to take full advantage, you need to develop as much awareness as possible of the ways your family history pushes you to act against your own best interests.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…Your imagination is both your biggest ally and your greatest temptation this month. Rather than allowing your fantasy life to rule you, work to bring awareness to the emotional energy that underlies your waking dreams. Why do you feel compelled to keep playing mental movies that are unrealistic, self-defeating or undesirable? Understand that and you become a mastermind.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…It’s hard to manifest the resources you need when you keep telling yourself you don’t really need them. Instead of playing the disinterested wallflower in the game of life, watch your thoughts and notice where you cut yourself short before you can even get started. You’re such a powerful communicator these days. You might be shocked at what you could have if you’d just ask for it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You may feel all topsy-turvy and lost in space, but you’re actually experiencing a psychological rebirth this month. Don’t try to think your way through this. Instead, keep asking what you really feel. What do you need — from life, from your relationships, from yourself? The only way to the freedom and abundance you desire is by acknowledging all of your feelings — especially the ones you feel guilty for having.
