Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) — Happy birthday Libra! Exciting Mars is in your sign for two months, giving energy and courage to make powerful changes. You can burst through issues that have held you back for many years. You might start a fitness program, get challenging new job or begin a sexy relationship. You can also erase negative subconscious programs. You can then reprogram powerful positive beliefs that help you achieve your dreams and make you joyous from a deep centered place!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) — It’s a month of breakthroughs! Meditate on resentments built up over the past two years. Find forgiveness for yourself and others involved so your energy isn’t bound up anymore. You’ll have waves of empowerment and inspiration through year’s end! Experiment with affirmations until you can feel your chosen truth statements reverberate in your bones. This combination of releasing old pain and then tapping into your new future possibilities easily manifests opportunities!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) — Meditate on how you’d best like to use your time and energy. As a Sag you’re interested in everything, so it’s vital to prioritize. You’ll have accomplishments in areas you’ve felt blocked from summer until now. This leads to increased self-esteem and also lots more money, so stay focused! As you’re doing actual practical steps, make time to visualize your future and also feel what it’s like to live that future. Practice rehearsing that image and feeling throughout the day and you’ll be amazed with the results!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) — Powerful Pluto moves direct in your sign, helping you make changes that have seemed impossible! Be very kind and supportive of yourself as you transform entrenched patterns regarding self-esteem, negative thoughts, bad habits or even addictions. Meditate and connect with the Universe since you’ll get the energy you need! Enlist trusted friends to keep you focused and inspired. Make a vision board and also keep a positive mantra going in your mind!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) — Consistent meditation and positive thoughts change your brain and shift your attitude! Even if it’s just ten minutes a day repeating a little mantra like “I love myself”, you’ll have a major breakthrough. Big spiritual changes can happen from small repetitions, so look for subtle shifts that add up to a “Wow!” If struggling at work, relief can come as a new colleague, different supervisor or insights about how to solve issues. You can also get a raise or new position. In general, have patience and know the Universe is on your side and good things are on their way from your earnest efforts!
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Focus meditations on forgiving past emotional betrayals so you can open your heart again. You’re so sensitive so it’s vital to remember that people growing in different directions isn’t a rejection of you; it can just be their spiritual path. But in areas you allowed too much and were a doormat you need better boundaries even as you forgive. Finances also clear up, even repayment of old debts you gave up on! Reconnect with old friends who’ve gotten lost in shuffle of busy schedules.
Aries (March 21 – April 19) — You can be starting an exciting new relationship! Make sure you’re both aligned in terms of healthy communication and shared values. Meditate to release old patterns so you’ll be aware and “nip them in the bud”. Yet don’t overlay past issues on the present. Longstanding wounds in current partnerships can heal with heart to heart talks. Maybe start meditating together. If you need to part ways, it can be through kindness and “conscious uncoupling”, but more likely the planets help you forge a new path together.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) — You might be starting a healthy, happy new relationship! Make it your spiritual practice not to put yourself down or obsess on your “flaws”. You’re lovable, kind and sweet — so obsess about that instead! Work issues resolve after months of apparent hopelessness, so celebrate shifts when they come. Health issues can heal as well. You’ll have the courage and fortitude to make changes, especially if you have to give up foods like gluten or sugar. Enjoy yourself and your good fortune, because you deserve it!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) — Don’t let obsession or worry stink up a good relationship! Meditate on old hurts and allow your heart to heal as you shower yourself with compassion. Present circumstances will seem better with past burdens off your mind. You might also run things by a trusted, objective friend. Issues with kids can also be healed this way. You might also have a health problem resolve since you’re not in constant “fight or flight”. Clarity comes about work and money problems as well!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) — Many relationship challenges resolve with gentle, yet clear communication. But first, meditate on your own to let inspired ideas come to you. Perhaps your partner might be willing to meditate with you after your solo inward journey. You’ll likely have more connection than you’ve had in months and you’ll both uncover more love and can build from a solid place now. However, if s/he isn’t not willing to listen or compromise, that may be a sign to part ways. You’ll be amazed who next comes into your life based on the groundwork you've already created!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) — Be gentle with yourself regarding your meditation or yoga practice. It’s hard to be consistently serene. Praise yourself for progress and release perfectionism! If you’re feeling anxious, tense or even overeating to suppress emotions, you might have to confront a difficult issue with someone. Difficult feelings are there for a reason, so explore them without self-judgment. Connect with your inner wisdom and ask for guidance, craft a script and run it by a trusted friend. This way you can state your truth without losing your temper.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) — You don’t give yourself credit for how insightful and intuitive you are. If you’re having issues in a relationship about finances or emotional intimacy, be bold enough to bring up challenging topics. You’re not paranoid or imaging that something’s off-kilter. Healthy confrontation bring you closer in a healthy partnership. Test the health of the bond, since you need people who communicate authentically. Also work with affirmations to increase self-esteem.
