Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
It’s all about the long view—not the quick fix, the spiritual bypass, or the glib quip. If you can stay focused on the idea that the past creates the present, just as the present creates the future, you’ll find it much easier to maintain a calm stance in the midst of what appears to be relentless turmoil.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
It’s a marriage of sorts—unconventional, unique—it’s you marrying your inner female, or insight, to your inner male, or the ability to act in the world on the basis of that insight. Don’t worry if this sounds mysterious; it’s supposed to because it is a deep spiritual secret of abiding wholeness.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Rather than blaming yourself because you can’t let go and surrender to the inevitable, honor your need to grieve what was. It’s not a sign of weakness to mourn lost love. It’s an indication of just how deeply we feel the loss—it’s human to miss love when it moves on or transforms into something else.
Cancer June 22-July 22
It won’t be easy fending off a sense of failure, especially if you thought you could make all the hard stuff magically disappear through spiritual Band Aids intended to deny the reality of your pain. Fight the need to indulge in dramatic despair, but also acknowledge what you feel.
Leo July 23-August 22
Yes, the foundations are shaking, which is completely normal during times of profound transition. Besides, you’re a Fixed Sign, which makes it harder to handle shifts, especially when your foundations are rattled. Breathe, and as you exhale, release the need for control. Life gets easier when you learn to trust.
Virgo August 23-September 22
You’re gonna have to choose: worry about what happens next or release the need for a specific outcome that assuages your anxiety about the future. Sounds like a no-brainer, but it won’t be that easy managing your fear of the unknown. The good news: you can do it if you stay focused and determined.
Libra September 23-October 22
Find your sense of humor and hold onto it with all your might because finding a way to laugh at the angst and tsuris of today’s world will help you maintain your mental health. I’m not suggesting that finding the cosmic joke is easy, but that doesn’t matter. Laughter helps the heart endure all sorts of difficulties.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
Manjushri, my favorite Bodhisattva, holds the diamond sword of lucid clarity that parts the veils of ignorance. You might feel the need to call on his presence, especially because that sword of insight often reveals the causes and conditions of suffering—a view with the power to transform your situation.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
If children were taught money management in school, very few of us would struggle with financial literacy. Navigating finances is like the alphabet—when we don’t learn early on, it’s harder to figure it out as adults. But it’s still worth a try, especially now, when you need a wholesome solution to a persistent financial worry.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
The key to your success is treading lightly and skillfully through a labyrinth of complex choices. You don’t have to make all your big decisions at once. You can take your time and evaluate each situation separately; just be sure to avoid getting trapped by the certainty of your point of view.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
It may not feel as if you’re headed in the right direction, but it’s likely you are, especially if you’re taking the time to consider the consequences of your choices. Don’t worry—this isn’t about negative results. I’m simply advising you to be aware that every choice and action puts something else in motion.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Balance is the key to handling a multitude of tasks skillfully, so rather than tip to one extreme or another, try to find the middle ground. It’s easier to establish and maintain your equilibrium, inside and out, if you err to the side of prudence. It’s not about bowing out of action; it’s about taking no unnecessary action.
