Star Wisdom: Take Intentional Action


astrologyWE HIT THE HEART of the Great Transition in January. Define what’s important to you, make the best plan you can, and take intentional action.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You need a bigger vision. The mission of the Starship Enterprise might serve as a good starting point: “To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.” You also need to include crew members in your plan. No one makes it to the undiscovered country alone.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Until you know who you are, it’s hard to get what you want out of life — no matter how hard you work or how much willpower you exert. Make “knowing thyself” your number one priority in 2014. Question everything you’ve always believed. Practice looking at your life from a different perspective. The more you move off your spot, the more positive outcomes you will find.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Do you believe, deep down, that the Universe supports you in achieving your life goals? Most of us secretly don’t, and our lives reflect it. A path to living life on a much bigger level opens in January. To access it, you need to learn everything you can about the places inside you that don’t believe Life is on your side.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Imagine a life full of relationships that supported and nurtured you without draining your energy. Those next-level relationships are available to you in 2014, if you can learn the fine art of mastering boundaries. Remember that this is ultimately an internal process: once your self-esteem is healed, you won’t feel the need to either over-give or to armor yourself against the world.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…It’s hard to master self-discipline until you can connect it to your bigger purpose. Identify the places where you waste energy, time and money AVOIDING the boring or routine things that simply need to be done. Then make a list of what you could achieve and enjoy in life if you had all that time and energy back. Use that vision to motivate you to create better routines and become a disciple of yourself.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…An opportunity to live more creatively is opening for you now. You might not feel you can afford to pursue your passion, but your chart says you can’t afford not to. In fact, learning to follow your bliss is a prerequisite for the financial or emotional support you crave in 2014. Of course, you need to be of service. So explore how doing what you love might actually serve one of society’s needs.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Use January’s energy to honestly assess whether or not your current living situation is supporting you in achieving your goals. Look at where you want to be ten years from now and start creating a detailed action plan to create a better home base. Until you can feel safe, supportive, productive and creative at home, you’ll struggle to manifest your career and relationship goals.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You need to seriously change your mind about something. It could be relationships, money, or what you need in order to feel successful or happy. Challenge yourself to see through the mental programming that keeps you trapped in limiting circumstances and unappealing choices. Your mind is the most powerful tool on the planet — it’s time you learned how to use it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Your carefree, gypsy attitude towards money and stuff is one of your most charming traits. But January challenges you to get serious about money and resources. Identify the lack that blocks you from being the inspirational leader you were born to be. Then start creating a plan to get those missing resources into your life.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…The turbocharged New Moon in your sign on the 1st sets the stage for the entire year by asking you, “Who do you think you are?” Make answering that question one of your main resolutions for 2014. So much is possible for you this year, but you have to break through your conditioning and achieve some level of self-realization to activate that potential.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…This would be a great month to practice that famous Aquarian detachment. Let the world go crazy while you sit back and develop a clear picture of what’s coming around the bend. The information you download by allowing yourself to float in January will be worth far more than anything you could manifest by swimming against the current.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You need to find your tribe this year. Your gift is to dream a better future and show it to the rest of us. But you can’t do that operating in isolation. You need a network of people who are both spiritually advanced and materially connected. Don’t let fear keep you isolated and don’t stop searching till you’ve found your people.
