Aries – (March 20 – April 18) It’s all about karma, baby. With Mars now retrograde until August 27th, it’s time to live and let live. Mars retrograde can get under your skin if you don’t recognize it. Examine what is causing you stress now; and then go back through the archives of time to find an origin. Now with healing Chiron in your sign, whatever is giving you pain or distress CAN be healed. Find that ‘itch’, and apply a soothing balm.
Taurus – (April 19 – May 19) I know, I know – you want to be free! The secret is that you hold the keys to your sovereignty. This is not about some ‘other’ person who is holding you back. You wear your loyalty like a crown, but remember that being a true queen requires discipline and commitment to self. Each day is like gold now, so spend it wisely. Take things one day at a time, but don’t back off or lose sight of your end goal.
Gemini – (May 20 – June 20) This is a good month to pursue one of your many interests, and if you feel like your partner just doesn’t understand you now, it’s really not about you. The asteroid Vesta in your partnership sector now indicates that your significant other just needs (or will get) some time alone. There is one stumbling block; just because you’re fancy free, do not take financial risks. Things may not work out as planned regarding money.
Cancer – (June 21 – July 21) You’re the star of this month’s new moon Solar Eclipse on July 12th but chances are that you’ll feel like somebody else is running your show. There are a hundred reasons why, but primarily it has to do with (ahem) Pluto. My sound advice here is: don’t do anything that you’ll regret. Don’t get mad and it’s not worth any attempt to get even. Do take time to smell the roses and plan a nice summer outing.
Leo – (July 22 – August 22) How does a Leo survive the watery, emotional days of Cancer? One of the issues here is vulnerability. The new moon Solar Eclipse of July 12th illuminates your solar 12th house of seclusion. With this event, you may have to take a back seat or work behind the scenes. Even if you don’t like it! July is a wait and see month for you, Leo. Remain honest and alert to opportunities that are destined to come your way.
Virgo – (August 23 – September 21) With Venus is in your sign from July 9th – August 5th the stars are asking ‘how do you feel about yourself?’ Venus really likes to shine, and on the heels of a stressful spring now is the time to really get in tune with your body. Get moving and establish your health routine before Mercury stations retrograde on July 26th. This way you’ll have the time carved out and not be so disturbed when things get chaotic. Go for it, Virgo! Venus only comes around once a year. Sleek. Sexy. Happy. Powerful.
Libra – (September 22 – October 22) Venus in Virgo suggests that it’s your time to work behind the scenes. This may expand into a situation where you must offer support to someone who can really use your hand now. With Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto retrograde all month the best way forward is to surrender. There are big and positive changes coming your way in the Fall. Hold on right now, and engage a spiritual practice of generosity.
Scorpio – (October 23 – November 21) You absolutely must stay on track this month, Scorpio. This means no pity parties and limited late nights out. You’re at a critical juncture in your growth. July holds a favorable atmosphere for your progress, provided you don’t get lazy. Balance a healthy lifestyle with fun and don’t give in to your extremist tendencies. Like the proverbial tortoise – slow and steady wins the race.
Sagittarius – (November 22– December 20) It’s important now to ‘say what you mean, and mean what you say’. The pace of your life will be speeding up after your ruling planet Jupiter stations direct on July 10th. And you’re like an awakening giant; ready to speak your mind and to chase down some annoying little people and/or misconceptions. You’ve been holding it in for too many lifetimes. The truth shall set you free.
Capricorn – (December 21 – January 18) This is a month to practice your soft touch techniques. It’s about getting what you want, but doing so in a way that promotes cooperation and even getting others excited and happy to assist you. Of course, the core issue here is feeling good about yourself. Be patient when a close partner wants some ‘space’. You may have to let the butterfly spread its wings, but many of them like to return home.
Aquarius – (January 19 – February 17) With the moons south node plus retrograde Mars joined in your sign, you are vulnerable now. Stay alert late in the month, especially during the full moon Lunar Eclipse of July 26th. Even the Dark Moon Lilith stands in the last degree of Capricorn. Practice self-care and respect in everything you do. This is about consciousness. There is a great power here but like a hot stove, it can also burn.
Pisces – (February 18 – March 19) There are energetic nooks and crannies to be found in this month that can bring on chaos if not addressed. And, even your best laid plans can hit bumps. Focus on short term strategies and if things get too complicated just consider it to be the Universe keeping you from wasting time. Stay attentive to your loved ones; find your happy place and stay there.
