ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)—You are here to show the world how to embrace newness without fear and you rise to the occasion, Aries. You clear the cobwebs of winter from your clouded mind and prepare to forge ahead to create new wonders. You know the necessity of working to clear the pathway and the energy that rises forth for you as the result of your actions.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)—You, more than anyone, know what value lies in the simple pleasures of truly enjoying the physical world, Taurus. The pureness of your intent invites others to open themselves up to abandoning rigid constraints that do not serve them in any real way. We are human and this world can be enjoyed without shame—you show us how spiritual honoring the beauty of life can be.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)—Consider the effect that other people can have on your sense of well-being, Gemini. When you feel conflicted, take the time to reflect and examine the origins of the energies that are the true source of your frustrations. We tend to underestimate the psychic impact of the negative thoughtforms we encounter. Trust your perceptions and take action to protect your dreams.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)—The world is your oyster, Cancer. When you meditate in nature, you can see the destiny of your dreams. There is great strength in this for you. In solitude, you come to know your place in the scheme of things and there you are able to access the deep well of resources available to you. You have the strength to reach for new levels of fulfillment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)—We all have access to deep knowing and it is there inside of that very place within yourself that you reside now, Leo. You have no tolerance for the middle ground—which is a good thing. Eliminating the thoughts that distract you from your own sense of things may seem wrong to the opposing energies, but it is really freeing and energizing to you. Why bother holding space for things you do not really honor or agree with? You become more aware that this is a waste of your time and energy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)—You are an alchemist of sorts, Virgo. Knowing yourself apart from the world is how you come to be self-contained enough to be masterful in your focus and intent. You will be amazed at what you are able to make real in the days ahead. This is the reward for honoring your own spirit enough to know it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)—Life is not always a beautiful thing to see. Libras are always there to remind us of our highest potential. You negotiate even the hard times with a graciousness and dignity that is your nature. But your greatest gift to yourself is the pure experience of your feelings—so that you might never lose sight of who you are. Let this be what guides you to make things better.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)—There is nothing like a little luxury to regenerate and rejuvenate the soul. A nap in the sun, something better than the usual fare—whatever you can find to spoil yourself is a good thing to pursue, Scorpio. You need the rest that beautiful things provide as you revel in the sanctity of the sensual side of luxury.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)—Who rules your world, Sag? Your openness and consideration can be deceptive when it comes down to the real issues of dominance inside your private life. Your loyalty is strong, but in the end it lies with you. This can be a shock to others who seek to have power over you. The lesson here is that your life is yours to live.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)—You see a real measure of gain in your pursuits, Capricorn. And, although you can seem more at ease than the rest of us in this capitalist paradigm we all flounder in, you still glean a great sense of satisfaction at the sight of your own accomplishments—and enjoy the simple rewards you gain for your efforts. Delight in the fruits of your labors!

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)—You are divine. There is nothing more to know now, Aquarius. The more centered you are inside this simple realization, the more peaceful and wondrous life becomes. You are beautiful and good and life is unfolding in highly ordered ways. Your perfection is real. That is all there is to it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20 )—Your sensitivity can be a hardship for you, Pisces, but now you cast the weight of the world to the wind and have some fun! Everywhere you turn there is pleasure to be had and you indulge in it. And hey, why not? Haven’t you already done your fair share for humanity for this year—and hey, it’s only spring!
