Mars leaves the sign of Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on August 2nd. In Sagittarius, Mars will join the great teacher and disciplinarian, Saturn, which is also in Sagittarius. Your belief systems will be tested– are they truly yours and are they valid for this time that we’re in now? Your ability to speed through life will be challenged– are you able to slow down on your own or will you insist on help from society? Opportunities to expand your boundaries and participate in life as a contributing citizen of the world will be available to you– will you willingly accept these new life views?
The planet Mars affects our daily lives by demonstrating how we best get things done. The change from one sign to another gives us the opportunity to refocus our attention and actions as we set about achieving our goals.
Let this new Mars action direct you to a more bountiful, all-inclusive experience of life and the infinite and blessed opportunities available to you. Your mantra is, “To thine own self be true.”
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Your best course of action this month is to not take anything too seriously. Most of what you’ll encounter during this month will be made up of issues that are beyond your immediate control. If you don’t take it personally, you’ll have the perspective you need to see who or what is really manipulating the situation. By remaining neutral, you’ll gain clarity and be able to take advantage of the opportunities revealed to you.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Which voice are you listening to right now? One represents the possibilities of the future and the other represents the fears of the past. Which one are you giving your power to? Whatever you focus your energy on determines your future. Do take stock of your progress and commit to seeing your projects through to the end. By doing so, you’ll achieve the success you desire and you’ll grow and benefit in ways you never expected.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The pressures of your life are taking a time-out and this respite gives you a chance to step back and assess your progress. What kind of foundation have you built? How is it that foundation supporting you? Who are your allies? The right answers will come to you as you as you review your circumstances and all of the other people involved. Remember to trust your intuition
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) You’re the pilot of your fate, now, and your navigators are your faith in yourself and your determination to win. Only by trusting in your intuitive senses can you understand the situation before you. Other people’s opinions won’t be of much help right now. Yes, the opinions of others can show you one picture, but that doesn’t mean that things are what they seem. What you’re told is right and what you know in your heart are two different things. If you rely on your intuitive senses for guidance, you’ll land in exactly the right spot.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Your charisma and power are at an all-time high. People who can help you are drawn to you and are willing to assist you as you move toward your goal. Remember to stay focused and listen to your intuition. Allow yourself to be guided by your powerful inner voice and you can’t fail. The magical words for you are, “Please” and “Thank you.”
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) This is a time of active soul-searching for you. You will go farther with your plans and goals if you slow your outward activities and spend the next few weeks in deep contemplation of your motives and focus. Examine your game plan; question your choices; contemplate the possibilities; plan for your success. The results you get from this exercise will be priceless.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Important elements are falling into place and things are beginning to come together for you. As you continue to stay focused and mindful of what’s going on around you, you’ll begin to notice how the prevailing winds of change are creating a climate of luck and assistance for you. Be decisive as you take advantage of the opportunities that come your way.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Your ability to mine any situation for deeply buried information and resources is your best ally at this time. Continue to listen to your powerful ‘inner detective’ and discover the elements that’ll help you attain a successful outcome. Pay special attention to who and what inspire you as you continue on your path of discovery. The positive results of your efforts will become clear by the end of the year.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) It’s important for you to keep a firm grip on your emotions this month. Pay special attention to the people around you and ask yourself this question, “Are they supporting me by expecting and insisting that I live my best life or are they enabling me to remain stuck in old patterns?” Whatever your answer, be honest with yourself and take the appropriate actions that will move you forward.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The time has come for you to take your accomplishments to a new level and demonstrate to yourself as well as to others that you are ready to move into a new, more rewarding phase of your life. This is an idea whose time has come and you’ll discover that you’ll be using new found skills and talents to lift you above previously insurmountable inner belief systems that once prevented you from moving forward. Remember to be mindful and grateful for arriving at this transformational place in your life.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Now is the time for you to move forward by taking the deliberate, well thought out steps necessary to bring your plans to fruition. By doing so and relying on assistance from others as well as your well-developed intuitive senses, you’ll experience your success manifesting in a very concrete manner. Help will come from an unexpected source.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Congratulations! You have a combined new role in the production of your life– that of producer, director, lead actor, and playwright. Step back and carefully observe the action and the other actors in your life. Observe carefully and ask yourself if you’re getting satisfaction from participating in this ‘show.’ If the answer is ‘yes,’ sit back and enjoy. If the answer is ‘no,’ be willing to rewrite and recast those parts that no longer work for you.
