Aries can be impatient. This sign is eager to get on with life, there is little time to waste with details and generalities. Aries prefers to leave the small stuff to other folk. He or she does not tolerate waiting and will be the first to speak up and to get things moving.
Extremely competitive, Aries suffers from me-me-syndrome. Like the Vernal Equinox signaling Spring, Aries is first, wants to be first, must be first, will insist on being number one. Sparks will ignite when Aries is around, if you need to be motivated, Aries will light your fire. This sign is all about beginnings and the energy required to sprint off the starting line.
If you love an Aries, be sure to let him or her win. The game of pursuit is an important factor in romance for Aries. If you have other suitors, Aries will enjoy jousting with them to win your hand. In turn, you must be a competitor too. Keep current with his or her ideas and try to help with the follow through. Remember your sweetheart has a short fuse, so don’t over-react to his or her explosions. Their blow-ups are brief and generally forgotten quickly. Aries holds no grudges. This is good.
The best thing about Aries is his or her passion for romance. Aries is a fire sign, so he or she will find inventive ways to “heat things up”. Candles (fire) are especially effective. Enjoy your Aries partner’s optimism and spontaneity and you will be forever blessed with the warmth of his or her embrace and the fire of love never extinguished.
ARIES (March 19-April 19) Aries is having a birthday and we are heralding the beginning of spring. Aries is all about communicating. Your voice is almost lyrical and perhaps you are sprouting words like flowers this month. As the month progresses your tone will change but only to put your money where your mouth has been. Continue to be mindful of what happens at home. Move your energy in a direction that is productive rather than combative. Cosmic Advice: Good things remain on the horizon for your career. Pluto has begun its long sojourn in your house of public life and over the next decade and a half you will find your reputation more important than you ever imagined. Keep yourself away from people who do not have your best interests at heart.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Taurus will keep thoughts to his or her self for the first half of the month. This quiet has a purpose. Taurus is not one to speak up out-of-turn. Come the middle of the month Taurus will get a turn. Your advice is always a determination of the future and one that has been considered deeply. Watch the stock market, that “bullish” place of finances. There will be lots coming out of that sector. Cosmic Advice: Opportunities remain for Taurus in the community and on short trips. Your good fortune is also in long distance travel and may help you in endeavors concerning education or religion. Pluto takes up residence in your house of beliefs. When this cycle ends do not expect to profess any of what you hold to be true now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Gemini will rely on conversations with friends and encounters with good friends the early part of the month. These will offer opportunities to Gemini, the kind that have long reaching effects on dreams and goals. From mid-April to early May, Gemini might want to keep some opinions to his or her self. Quiet your mind, quiet in general will be good. Not speaking has its rewards. Cosmic Advice: Your good fortune is with others. The helping hands of resources beyond your own will benefit Gemini very well. Pluto moves into this sector for a long visit. This is the house of money, for starters, how and what happens to resources you hold with other people will never be the same again. What exists today will in no way resemble what it will be a decade from now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Cancer quick step will end early this month. That wild dance you’ve been doing will quiet down. All that spinning and twirling will not have been in vain; expect your personal resources to now show the effect of the past few months. Your communicating may be a challenge but only in the sense that you may have to stand on your desk to be heard. You are in the public view and you want to be sure that fact is taken notice of. Cosmic Advice: Your good fortune lies within your relationships. One-to-one encounters benefit you and cause you much joy. Too many suitors could be one problem, and only the best need apply. Connections with professionals will have excellent results. Pluto based here for the next decade plus will assure you that an existing relationship cannot survive unless you are willing to accept it completely transformed. This being unlikely…it is best to keep an open mind and see what the future holds.
LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo only has a short time remaining before he or she can come out from under the manhole cover. One more month of this cramped energy. Leo is feeling the awakening. Just a few days into May and you will be able to step into the light, meet folk head-on and slay a few dragons. Until then continue to get your life in order. Cosmic Advice: Meditate daily and be patient. If you choose to travel, do it early in the month. There will be more talk with authority and those folk carrying boss statuses. Your good fortune remains in your house of health and day-to-day. Pluto has taken up residence here as well, but his stay in very long. What kind of changes he will enforce can only be imagined. Do not expect anything about your routine to be what it is today. A decade from now, you will barely remember this part of your self.
VIRGO (August 24-September 22) Virgo is planted for the next four years. There will be no moving off the dime, it is primarily about learning lessons. Be a good student and pay attention, please. Opportunities exist where your friends are, these will affect your dreams and goal. Cosmic Advice: Expect lengthy talks involving wills, estates and the like. Money is the focal point. Talk will shift later in the month to broader topics. Your good fortune remains in the risks you take. Good fortune to those you love. Children and lovers will fare well and receive rewards or recognition. Pluto has parked his bottom here for the next decade plus. The extent of the changes he will make will be mind boggling. Keep a watchful eye on those you love.
LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra has challenges with career, but every challenge experienced pushes you towards your goal, forces you to do more and be all that you can be. Don’t think of what you encounter as negative, turn things around with your thinking. Talking to someone you trust in a one-to-one manner is the best approach. Later in the month you will have to talk about joint finances or insurance matters. Cosmic Advice: Your good fortune remains at home; in your roots and your sacred space. Pluto resides there for the next decade plus and may push you to find another home, bring up what you considered roots and force you to plant again. Remember change is good, it is the seed of what will be, of what is suppose to be.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio must make adjustments in his or her thinking. If you think there is nothing to do, that everything is going according to plan, don’t get ahead of yourself. One can not align his or her self completely if the actions taken are not true to self. Your belief system may need review, are you using outdated forms of belief and pretending to believe in what you say? These are questions to ask your self this month. Scorpio may divulge some of this to a trusted companion, someone younger, a brother, a son. Cosmic Advice: Your good fortune is with siblings and relatives. Local happenings keep you happy and expand your mind. Learning in a community setting or teaching in the same will bring you rewards. Pluto moves into this location and his affect will bounce around through the above mentioned people. The place you consider your home town may not be that place several years from now. Keep yourself open to change, people may come and go…it is not about them but more about you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius will juggle the finances of others this month. Don’t put too much stress on your self, try to make adjustments that work in your favor. You may be talking about taking a chance, buying a lottery ticket or spending money on children, and/or a lover. The conversation will shift to what happens on a daily basis after you are done with that. Cosmic Advice: Good fortune is in your own resources. There are no issues of self-esteem, the issues can be inflated sense of self. Keep your head and ego in check. Pluto moves into this sector and will storm through your perfect financial plan like a tsunami. Ten years from now you will be wondering what happened and may find yourself in a financial place you never expected.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn is the only sign rejoicing over Pluto’s movement. The feeling that all that of the out-of-control stuff in your life is more predictable may be valid. Capricorn is of course, grounding. There is the all business attitude and don’t-mess-with-me feeling. The only sore spot is that Pluto is going to sit in your light for a long time. If you think you are used to the shadow of your ruler Saturn then you may not fare too badly. Cosmic Advice: Ask any Sagittarius you know how they feel about the last fourteen years of his or her life. Write down his or her answer. This information will be your bench mark. Good fortune is driving beside you in the front seat, so for now roll the windows down and enjoy the ride.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius has good fortune at his or her elbow. She is there to break your fall or whisper good advice in your ear. Be sure to listen to your angel, please. Mid-month the family is crowding around, lots of talking, lots of moving about. Travel short distances will insure that the whole family shows up at least once, all together. Cosmic Advice: Your stomach may remain an issue for about another month. What you eat is what you are. Hopefully by the end of this transit of Mars you will have a better diet.
PISCES (February 19-March 18) Pisces has good fortune in friendship, groups, and organizations. Become a part of the whole and you will feel more useful, here is where kindness matters. Money is in every conversation, and it is your finances that dominate the issues. This shifts mid-month to talking with siblings and other relatives. Don’t give more of yourself away than you have to. Cosmic Advice: Pluto has moved in next to your hopes and dreams. He has a reputation for not knowing when to leave. Change is his goal and he stays long enough to make changes that turn what you have planned inside out. Don’t push or pull against his energy. Let change occur, you may surprised where it leads you and what dreams come true.
Have the best day everyday…
