ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) This week if you stumble you need to get right back up and in the game. None of this giving up stuff. And really try not to get into looking at what other people have or don't have or are doing or not doing, blah, blah, blah. Keep yourself focused on you and your life and try hard to remember how many successes you have had that have led you to this place.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) A time of great rewards is coming for you and all you have to do right now is be very patient. Take slow and steady action – all that good one foot in front of the other stuff – and just keep plugging along. Soon you will see that it has all been worth it, you just need to make sure you don't give up and that you don't get impatient and try to force things, or control things. Slow and steady is your only job this week.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Stable and balanced change is the way to go. You want to take your time and it is okay for things to take as long as they need to. Resist the urge to try to force anything. Things are going along just fine – for real. The changes are inevitable, so stay in sync with how things are unfolding.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) It is time to get very honest with yourself about what you can and can't do. It's about getting things done – accomplished, not about learning new skills. There will be other times to learn; right now it's about getting real with yourself about who you are RIGHT NOW.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) This week you can know for sure that any anxiety you are feeling will be directly related to how creatively you are looking at your life or a situation. Your point of power is in the center of yourself and there very well may be lots of outside things that could distract you from that point. The way to stay centered is to be connected to some kind of creative/fluid thing. Work through your anxiety by finding one simple creative thing to do.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This week is a perfect time for some spring/winter-cleaning. You can do this on a large scale or small, your choice; just make sure you are open to the letting go part of things. Everything from stuff in your closets that you no longer have a use for all the way through relationships that no longer serve you are open to the cleansing. Let go of what you know you need to.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) It is your job to set things up and bring your beliefs and ideals to the table. Live by those things that you truly believe and become an example to others as you make choices from your ideals. It's not about getting anyone else to believe that way you do -- it is about living by your 'truths' and by doing that your life inspires others to live in their "truth."
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) What gets you excited and sparks you to take action? Things like feelings are stirring inside you and now is the time for you to take action on those feelings. Yes, it would be easy to ignore them and live without all that messy emotional stuff – yet isn't it that very stuff that makes life worth living?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) There is an old Zen saying that goes like this: "The difference between pain and sorrow is – pain is something that we experience in a moment, sorrow is when we drag that pain into the next moment." It seems a little harsh, yet there is some wisdom in there. Some old wounds would like to heal; yet we keep dragging them back up by telling the same sad story or by replaying things in our minds again and again. Allow the old wounds to heal, they want to heal, allow the past to be just that – the past.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) It would be nice if you could find some kind of balance: a balance between giving and receiving, between complete independence and complete dependence upon another. That balance point is called inter-dependency. If you are feeling burnt out you have probably given too much (co-dependence), and rather than over-compensating and shifting all the way to complete detachment, figure out the inter-dependency thing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Okay, it is time to make a list. Several of them in fact. This week's energy is such that it will be easy for you to lose your way unless you have a very clear list of what is important. Write down things you would like to accomplish over the next week and then put them in order of importance. The hardest part will be trying to stay connected to those priorities yet it will be the best way to not get lost inside your own life.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) It really isn't about defending yourself. The holding back thing isn't going to work at least not as far as getting hurt goes, or people finding out your secrets. This is a time of allowing yourself to be exposed and yes, the dreaded 'v' word – vulnerable. Choose not to defend yourself, choose to reveal yourself instead.
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before or after your birthday.
