Star Wisdom: Be passion and engage your soul


astrologyFive planets in fiery Aries inspire us to take passionate action this month. The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on the 25th challenges us to engage our souls and find the deeper meaning in what we’re doing with our lives.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Opportunity — perhaps disguised as a big, bad wolf — is huffing and puffing at your door. The message is clear: It’s time to step into who you really are. You can walk through the door, or wait until the wolf blows your house down. Either way, now is the time to live your dream.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…This is an opportunity to clear yourself of a pattern of what we might call self-imprisonment. You didn’t create this prison, but you are the only one who can free yourself from it. Notice how someone else in your life is reinforcing that old idea of who you are SUPPOSED to be. Then ask yourself why you feel obligated to play that old role — rather than just being you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…What are you waiting for? You’ve got the tools, you’ve got the talent and you’ve got the vision. The tribe is ready to support you, but they can only help to the extent you’re willing to be brutally honest with yourself about what you want and what you need. Use this month’s liberating energy to get clear and then connect, connect, connect.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…If I may quote the old urban philosopher Lou Reed: “Self-knowledge is a dangerous thing — the freedom of who you are.” That’s from the song “There Is No Time,” and with your house of career and reputation lit up like a bonfire, there really is no time like right now to own the dream of your life. Write your personal declaration of independence and dare to do what you came here to do.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…The doors of perception are wide open. In fact, your perspective is expanding so rapidly, you may not recognize yourself from one day to the next. Roll with it, Leo. Trust the inspiration that is coming through from your Higher Self. You can do so much more than you’ve allowed yourself thus far in life. “If you will it, it is no dream.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Anger can be a liberating force in your psyche. So rather than escaping into rationalizations or manifesting it as physical symptoms, use your anger to push away the psychological boundaries that limit and isolate you. Catch fire and burn up the insidious thought-forms proclaiming that you are doomed to stay stuck or that life doesn’t support you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Relationships are where you learn about who you are and what you really need. It only stands to reason that the more authentic, honest and direct you get, the easier it is for the Universe to bring you the relationship(s) you desire. Lasting harmony becomes a real possibility once you learn to hold your own unique melody.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Use the first half of the month to buckle down and finish that drudge work that must be completed before you can step into the next level of life. The second half of the month brings lots of opportunity, including at least one important relationship development. Make sure you’re ready for it!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…April’s energy is radically supportive of you being your own true self. So let your freak flag fly! Call it like you see it, name it and claim it — go for the gold. Some people won’t be able to handle the truth, but that’s fine. At least one rock-solid supporter has your back — and that’s enough to give you the courage to fly.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You can’t conscionably avoid dealing with the family legacy this month. Look honestly at what your parents couldn’t handle and passed down to you instead. Feel the emotions that have been hiding out in your subconscious all these years and let them dissolve from your body. This is an opportunity to start a new life where you feel secure, supported and empowered.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Your mind is on fire right now, but you’ve got to find a place to put all these ideas and inspirations. You’ve got enough mental energy to sit down (or pace around) and write an entire book in the next three weeks. So figure out what’s important and use this rare supernova of mind power to map it, plan it, sketch it, and speak it into being.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You didn’t come here to waste a lifetime’s worth of life energy playing the walk-on role in other people’s dramas. You know what you want, whether you’ve admitted that to yourself yet or not. Trust the way YOU see you, not the stories others project onto you. The resources you need are right there, waiting for you to realize you actually deserve them.
