Esoteric Spiritual Horoscope for January by Aluna Michaels, M.A.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) — Happy birthday Capricorn! Make a list of everything you want to transform in your life, be they relationships, job issues, health conditions, emotional patterns, etc. Forgive yourself for “failures”. Make peace that things come to a natural conclusion in order to make space for a more fulfilling life! Release anger so you can use that pent-up energy to be joyful and to create powerful changes. Make gratitude lists, since you’ll easily overlook blessings if you’re in “perfectionist” mode.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) — Don’t be afraid to explore your subconscious. It’s intimidating to feel old, squashed-down emotions. Aquarians often prefer to think about emotions rather than feel them. Be brave so your heart can open in new ways and allow deeper, more fulfilling experiences to flow into your life! Be active with supportive friends so you can have fun and also have a listening ear. Make changes in your home so it feels fresh and vital. Throw out junk that reminds you of the past in a negative way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – It’s so important to follow your inner guidance. Daily meditation, even for a few concentrated minutes, helps strengthen your soul connection. Many insights and solutions will come as you validate your knowingness. It’s a powerful time to make sure you’re following your own life path, and not merely going along pleasing others. Trust your heart, no matter what! You can also have breakthroughs at work that excite you and give you more of a sense of meaning and purpose.
Aries (March 21 – April 19) — This can be one of the most successful times in your life for career! Stick with your values and deepest visualizations, because you can create even from seemingly impossible odds. You can also have financial breakthroughs, not just from work, but from gifts or “unexpected income”! Meditate on the impact you wish to make in life in general, based upon your unique talents and qualities. Keep your focus in that direction and watch the results roll in!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) — Uranus moves direct in your sign, bringing renewed courage to imagine and manifest your dreams! Meditate to release limited thoughts about yourself, others or life in general. Uranus reminds you that every possibility is in the quantum field. Your thoughts and beliefs either draw or repel those possibilities. Choose spiritual concepts that keep your mind and heart open. Talk with like-minded friends each day to encourage each other. Also, plan a trip to a dream destination — maybe India, Bali, Paris or Italy! Allow yourself to splurge on something that nurtures you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) — Get ready for relationship excitement! If single you can meet a sexy new partner, and if bonded you can re-ignite passion together! Internally, you may have challenges about withstanding the intensity of intimacy. Meditate on past events or family patterns that inhibit your ability to get close and/or to stay close. Even if you need a trained professional, you can break through these fears, traumas and limiting beliefs! You can also heal ways you self-sabotage when it comes to finances.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) — It’s vital to make sure your needs are being met in relationships. Meditation creates a strong inner bond with yourself and with the nurturing Universe. But you also need bonding with the humans with whom you choose to merge lives. Be brave and stand up to old emotional patterns of “lack” within yourself and between you and a partner. Also beware of shunting your anxiety into eating crappy food. Be direct with others and treat your body well!
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) — Uranus moves direct, bringing changes to your career. If you feel your work is meaningless, opportunities can arise to be with a company who’s mission aligns with your heart. It’s important to be true to yourself in every way right now, otherwise you can have health “stuff” like insomnia, digestive issues, repeated colds or feelings of anxiety. Be with people who support the shifts you need to make to have fulfillment in your life!
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) — It’s time to stand up to the critical voices in your head once and for all! You’re so protective of others, so imagine if those voices were saying mean things about your best friend. You would not believe those mean things and you’d see the ideas as abusive. Meditate and become your own protector from your negativity. Make a clear decision to believe in your goodness, in spite of your flaws. Embrace new forms of spirituality that emphasize self-forgiveness and self-love.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) — It’s a month of deep healing about your capacity for intimacy and trust. Meditate on releasing betrayals and hurts, no matter how longstanding. Believe that you can create new patterns of connection that reflect your own chosen life direction. You don't have to repeat family dysfunction or live in the shadow of trauma. Seek professional help if needed, yet also connect with new possibilities that exist in the Universe. Your fulfilling future is in the quantum field. “Brain wash” yourself with those joyous beliefs by joining with that energy in meditation and throughout the day. You can also have financial breakthroughs as your self-worth increases!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) — If you’re involved with someone, meditate on releasing past ideas about s/he is. Pray to see him/her with fresh eyes. If single, let go of old hurts that narrow your heart so you can explore relationships again. In general, examine your allegiance to your beliefs about life and love. Where can you allow more gentleness and vulnerability? Can you let go of pessimism that you call “realism”? Financially, you’ll have a great month. Make sure you splurge a little on yourself. You deserve your own love and thoughtfulness!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) — Energetic Mars is in your sign, giving pep, courage and enthusiasm to make changes or meet goals! You can start a new relationship, resolve job issues or makes shifts that improve your health. In meditation, place focus on beliefs that limit financial flow. These can be inherited ideas from generations back that you firmly decide are no longer true for you. Set up a solid budget that includes paying off debt, but also gives you a bit of “mad money” so you don’t feel trapped by overly stringent rules.
