Star Wisdom: Discovering what Drives Us


The strong Leo energy makes us want to shine, while Mars and Saturn in Scorpio push us to face our fears and discover what truly drives us.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…All of the excuses we employ to put off “following our bliss” boil down to one thing: we’re too afraid to do battle with the monsters in our own psyche. But you’re a warrior at heart and your guiding spirit Mars wants to lead you into battle this month. Confronting your deepest fears — and the manipulative behavior they create — opens you to experiencing your heart’s desires.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Want to solve your relationship problems once and for all? Go home, either literally or in your mind, and observe mom and dad. Watch how they relate to both the people they like and those they merely tolerate. There’s a way of positioning the ego against “the other” that you absorbed and it screws up your relationships. See it and you’ll set your love free.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…The Buddhists call them “tolerations” — the clutter on your desk, the trip to the gym, the unpaid bills on your to-do list. It takes a lot of mental energy to avoid these things. If you’re going to do a thing, just do it. If you’re not going to do it, cross it off your list and let it go for now. Facing your tolerations head-on will reenergize your life and fire up your enthusiasm.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Want to invite more money, resources or personal power into your life? Stop making excuses for not creating. Whether you want to write a book, master the guitar or start your own herbalism practice, resolve — not money — is at the heart of the matter. Your will is strong this month, but it needs to be directed into what matters to you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You can blame bad luck, unreliable people, or a lack of support for falling short of your dreams. But Mars and Saturn are pushing you to realize that the only thing that holds you back is the hidden fear and shame you hold for being so radiant. You are special! Own that fact and reclaim your rightful place as author of your life.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You can’t see the DNA that animates each cell of your body. Does this make it unreal? So many forces you can’t see with your physical eyes are supporting your growth and urging you on into joy. But you can’t access this abundant support when your mind sees only concepts and not reality. Choose to become the master of your thoughts, rather than their slave.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…What is the shadow of success? What holds you back from your dreams isn’t money but rather your subconscious fears about what will happen when you get what you want. The more you force yourself to watch that subconscious horror flick, the more you’ll realize it’s just a movie. Then you’ll be free to turn it off and live your life.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…It’s understandable you would feel ashamed of your power. Just look at what you learned about it from your parents. But whether you’re trying to protect others from yourself or protect yourself from others, it’s time to grow up and take responsibility for who you are. You didn’t come here to be nice; you came here to make a difference.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Mars and Saturn are challenging you to a dumpster dive of the soul. This will most likely not be a lot of fun. It would be much easier to avoid it. But if you’re willing to force yourself to look at all the psychological garbage you’ve been dragging around, you could change the course of your entire life over the next six weeks.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…You can channel a tremendous amount of willpower into realizing the dream of your life this month. Your visionary single-mindedness might frighten someone close to you. It will be tempting to pull back and settle for less than you deserve. But before you let yourself down, ask yourself if playing small is really helping them.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…You are beginning to see that you could actually achieve your goals and manifest the life you want. But this realization triggers your deepest fears about relationships: isolation, exile, banishment. Rather than run from these fears, allow yourself to fully fantasize your worst-case scenario. Then be yourself anyway. The fear is just a cloud in the mind obscuring the reality of unlimited love.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Forcing yourself to “try harder” or to overcome your bad habits through willpower won’t solve the problem for long. The problem is not your lack of self-discipline or stamina, it’s the core belief that says you are flawed and therefore unworthy of your dreams. You don’t change a core belief; you stare at it till you can see through it to the truth.
