LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Great news for Libra! Jupiter the planet of good fortune and abundance, has entered the sign of Libra residing there for the next year. The best way to have Jupiter’s energy shine on you is to remain confident and optimistic in all your affairs, expecting only the best. With that said, this month Mars, the planet of strife, is a challenging position for Libra and Jupiter. But by using Jupiter as a buffer and remaining steadfast with confidence, you will be able deal with any opposition that comes your way. Mars is in this position for just this month, Jupiter will be with you much longer.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
This month Venus, the planet of love and money, resides in the Scorpio. This is a highly beneficial position in matters of relationships and finances. However, the normally passionate Scorpio must venture out of its also normal reserve and be willing to express its desires. You can’t taste the deliciousness of Sweet Berries custard, if you don’t get off the couch and go get the flavor of your choice. The Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd, shining its light on all your endeavors. Between Venus and Sun radiating their goodness on you, prepare to enjoy a most splendiferous month.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22 – DEC. 21)
You’re in total control of this month’s proceeding. Is that scary? It shouldn’t be, because you have all the planetary energy you need to succeed in whatever you choose. Not bad eh! Okay, okay but with one slight caveat. That is, because Saturn the planet of discipline, and Jupiter the planet of optimism form a powerful alignment and must be used appropriately. How so? Actually, it’s rather easy. In all proceedings use a disciplined and optimistic approach. Go step by step, all the time with the assumption of your unequivocal success. Understand the first thing you need to control is…you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Nice and easy does it every time. Don’t force, push or pull through this month. It’s much better to glide with grace, ease and elegance. You’ll get nowhere fast with excess effort. There is no reason to put 10 lbs. of effort into a 2 lb. job. The only ingredient to go heavy on is your assumption that your success is decreed by the heavens to be inevitable. It’s meant to happen, thus it will happen at the perfect time. So breathe, let those muscles relax and your mind chill. Believe that will be well and it will because, nice and easy does it this month.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Sol wants to win Saturday’s lotto, so he prays to God to bless his desire. Saturday comes; Sol is “not a winner.” The next week, same situation. Sol then decides to focus his whole next week on praying to God. But again, no success. Now Sol is angry at God and begins to yell at God. As he does, the clouds gather above him and a powerful voice comes down from above, “Sol, meet me half way, by a ticket!” This month, celestial suggestion is that you fully participate in your endeavor in order for the universe to meet you half way. It will.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
Imagine being in a sailboat on beautiful day. The sun is brilliant and fully present, the sky is crystal blue, the temperature is warm but not hot. All is perfect except that there is absolutely not a sneeze of wind. It’s as still as frozen pizza. The little island is waiting for you to arrive for you picnic. Don’t let disappointment and frustration ruin your day. Realize you do have an option. It’s a simple one as well. Turn on the engine! That’s why you have it, isn’t it? This month if your boxed in, look for obvious options and you’ll find them.
ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 20)
Aries is the quintessential astrological sign of action. This is so true, that it’s not unusual for the Ram to get into action before it realizes exactly what it’s doing. This month however, celestial suggestion is that Aries cool its jets, hold its horses and put it in neutral. During this time period, the way to arrive at our destination is not by pushing but by pulling. Pull with your charisma, your charm, your magnetism. Use your sugar and honey and put down your battering ram. Try it and find out, it’s easier than you think. Push not, pull more. Sweet… real sweet.
TAURUS (Apr. 21 – May 21)
Compromise is the key word for this month, especially in matters dealing with your loved ones and financial matters. Think win – win. To approach a situation in any other manner, is to face a lose-lose scenario. The golden rule suggests, for you to treat others how you’d like to be treated. But this month adhere to the platinum rule. And that is, treat others how they would like to be treated. When you treat others in such a manner, the magic wand of the karmic way will bless you with reciprocity. Remember what goes around, comes around. This month it comes around quickly.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
The Sun, the planet of life, Mercury, the planet of communication and Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, are all positively aligned with Gemini this month. With this highly beneficial lineup, it’s time to say the things you’ve been waiting to say, write the things you’ve been waiting to write, negotiate and sign the contracts you’ve been waiting to sign. Your normally brilliant Gemini mind is even more “fantabulous.” Use your enhanced brilliance to express what you have repressed. Now is the time and you’re in the right place. Remember don’t rely on others to guess what you need to express.
CANCER (June 22 – July 21)
Observe a crab at the beach and you will see that when it’s not sure matters are copasetic, it will pull into its shell and remain there until the appropriate time to come out. This month is the opportune time for the Crab to follow the sensibilities of the crab. Pull into your shell and review, reorganize and renew. Don’t think of this of time as being wasted or unproductive. On the contrary, this is can be a period of significant progress. There is Zen term for this process. It’s called “inactive activity.” Being still within and without has its own power. Use it.
LEO (July 22 – Aug. 22)
In all matters of relationship, it’s best to understand and practice, the wisdom found in the axiom, “First seek to understand, then seek to be understood.” By seeking to first understand the point of view of another, you’ll be led to discern the key to a successful negotiation, if there can be one. This can be seen as a compassionate way of interrelating. However, It can also be seen as the more aggressive way of the samurai warrior, which proclaims, “Know your enemy.” In either case, the practice fosters an understanding of the other person, which increases your chance of a successful out come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Joe observed his neighbor Frank sawing down a dead tree in his front yard. Joe noticed how Frank struggled because the blade on the saw was so dull. Joe suggested to Frank, that if he sharpened the saw the job would go much easier and more quickly. Frank replied that he didn’t have time to sharpen the saw and continued with his unnecessary arduous labor. This month it will benefit Virgo to take the time to “sharpen its saw.” Step back and get a more objective perspective of what’s going on around you and the direction your heading. Listen to Joe. You’ll be glad you did.
