ARIES - March 20 – April 18
The frantic visiting and partying winds down and you start thinking about getting your life back to normal. There are many projects you want to start and/or finish and you just need to organize your thoughts, make lists and follow through with them a little each day. Mentally, you may feel a bit exhausted and inundated with everything that is going on in your life, but things are moving forward nicely. The unexpected may happen throughout the month, so just go with the flow so that there are no significant issues. Pace yourself as you seem to be one of those people who never know when you are over doing it until you collapse!
TAURUS - April 19 – May 19
Now is the time when you have many personal decisions to make and many of them will be life changing. Some of these may coincide with karmic lessons that you have been dealing with for a long time. Education and thoughts of travel in the near future keep your mind active. Your perspectives on many things change; however, so many great opportunities will start appearing in your life. If you need to make an important decision regarding your family or perhaps adding a pet to the household, look at all sides of the situation so that everyone is comfortable with your decision. Make sure you make a list of what you want to attract so the universe can work with you, but don’t get off track by other opportunities that are not in your goals or dreams.
GEMINI - May 20 – June 20
Money seems to come from many sources. Finances need to be budgeted so that you will feel more secure. Stop spending on non-essentials and start saving for something that you truly need or just for security in the bank in case of an unexpected expenditure. Emotions will become more focused once you decide what you truly in all of your relationships. You may be looking for a partner that will be in both your best interests now, so be proactive and get out there. (S)he is not coming to your front door. If in a relationship, things do improve once you communicate and understand what your partner wants. People take awhile to get to know each other, so be patient and just have some fun.
CANCER - June 21 – July 21
Home life seems important now and there will be many issues that need to be resolved and forgotten. Compromising will help smooth things over on many levels. You will become more focused, organized and centered when you decide to go the extra mile to make personal and business partnerships run more smoothly. Many changes are going on in your life and you have to go with the flow or you will not learn the lessons that are being given to you. You may alter the way you think on many levels such as: your philosophical makeup, your core inner beliefs and may discover secrets about your past or those close to you that may surprise you. Be prepared for everything so that when things happen, you are not caught off guard.
LEO - July 22 – August 21
Romance is in the air (or you are looking for it!). You are super sensitive now, but very hopeful that life will finally give you a break and get you moving in the right direction. Make more logical decisions and your choices will push you on the right path and in front of the people who are supposed to accompany you on that path. Leos are becoming lucky now so if you are more focused on the future you want to create, and stop worrying about the past, this is a perfect time to start working towards your goals and dreams. It is also an excellent time to stop giving away your energy by doing so many things for others and concentrate on yourself for a change.
VIRGO - August 22 – September 21
Continuing education, in or outside of a school, is important now. Your values and philosophies may change due to certain circumstances that you have recently experienced. Don’t over think every little thing in life. Once you do make a decision about how to proceed; however, make sure you move ahead on that decision. Procrastination is not an option now or you will be attracting more negative energy to you and you don’t deserve that. Volunteering or working additional jobs may keep you overwhelmed and exhausted. This is a great time to make sure that you are keeping up with your health regime through exercising and eating properly. Health issues may pop up if you haven’t been taking care of yourself. If a checkup is needed, you should arrange one so that you can be sure that health will not be an issue in the future.
LIBRA - September 22 – October 22
Partnerships may be tricky. You will need to figure out exactly what you have to do and then make a commitment to change your life for your best interest. If compromise is okay with you for now, it may work for a short while, but sooner or later, you will have a difficult decision to make about your life and relationships. Do whatever feels right to you and do think of yourself first. Your giving nature keeps you trapped inside of the box so that when you are not giving, you feel guilty or perhaps that you could have been a better person in some way. This time is all about you and no one else matters as much as you do. Once you realize that, you will be truly happy.
SCORPIO - October 23 – November 20
It seems as if personal and business partnerships are of importance and you would like to go to the next level in your romantic partnership, whatever that may be. However, there may be an issue that needs to be discussed or resolved before making any important decisions. You seem to be getting more serious and mature; you are looking towards the future now with anticipation and excitement. If you are considering a long distance vacation, this is a great time to get away with loved ones. You need to relax and rejuvenate after all the stress of the holidays. So much good luck is coming your way and all you have to do is to figure out what you really need at this point in time and grab it.
SAGITTARIUS - November 21 – December 20
You are ready for some fun and want to escape and dream of the life you wish you had. Friends will help you take your mind off of your troubles and issues; however, many of them will also be available to discuss anything that may be bothering you. Figuring out your finances and trying to get them into some order will take time. Your love of people and talking will invite many new experiences, so be open to them. Organizing your essential papers would be one thing off of your list of things to do. Make sure all important papers are updated such as wills, living wills, trusts, insurance policies so that they will not cloud your mind later.
CAPRICORN - December 21 – January 18
Travel, higher education, philosophies or religion may be of interest. You are trying to make major decisions and need some direction. Ask for opinions or help from those you trust and be a bit cautious of those who want to keep secrets from you or who keep changing the story every time you talk with them. Family issues should be resolved so that everyone has peace of mind. Don’t be too hard on yourself as you are doing the best that you can under the circumstances. Partnerships of all kinds will aid you in so many ways. If you have trust and honesty as your allies, what could go wrong? Be supportive of those who need your help in return and be open to others’ opinions because “they” have a lot of opinions to share with you.
AQUARIUS - January 19 – February 18
Changes in your status in life and/or your career seem eminent. You will go far if you are not afraid of taking the risks. You seem to be running around doing too much as you are really a bit unorganized OR you have chosen to do too much to keep yourself busy so that you don’t have to deal with other issues that may be on your mind. Rest is important and you should try very hard to have a positive attitude even though you are emotionally exhausted and a bit saddened by specific situations that have had a tremendous impact on your life. Life is going in a better direction. So many wonderful doors will be opening up for you, so be ready to take those opportunities so that you finally get everything you deserve.
PISCES – February 19 – March 17
It’s time to get back to your spiritual or metaphysical pursuits. The holidays pulled you in many directions, but now you need to be more centered, stable, secure and grounded. Friends seem to want to keep pulling you off of your path so it is up to you to make time for both. You are thinking in many new directions and are really trying to understand the big picture of life. Take it one step at a time or it can be overwhelming. Love life may be confusing at times, so it would be best to have a heart to heart with the one you love so that there are few disagreements or concerns about your future and in particular your goals and objectives.
