You’re nearly there, as you’re peaking your head out of winter’s door. Several planetary bodies have wandered (planet means wanderer) into the driving, bursting energy of Aries, the commencement of spring, before the sun finally arrives to shed the commensurate amount of light to make spring happen. How are you to best harness this energy? Different faith traditions have different answers. Judaism instructs you to “Pass Over” the turbulence by creating the order of a Seder. Christianity celebrates the death and resurrection of the season in the form of the cruxifiction and resurrection. And Chinese philosophy would have you undergo an acupuncture treatment to harness the extreme energy of turning into spring. It is best to turn inward and explore your own nature, yes nature, and decide what is best for your self as you break into the beginning of nature, and the stars’, new year.
Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: This is an extraordinarily powerful week for you. Make sure that even though you are sure to burst into your full being that you remain stoically within yourself and aware of how your surging actions effect those around you.
Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: This next month may (unintended but beautiful slip) feel like the earth is rumbling beneath your feet, so hang on, and look ahead to the sweet culmination in your birthday in the next month or two.
Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: The gods place an extra emphasis on your friends and social networks in the coming month. You are pleased by this, but make sure to guard your own inner flame lest you run the risk of becoming extinguished by the machinations of those around you.
Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: The massive emphasis on your career continues but remember what gets you to the top of your game in the first place—lovingly holding on for dear life.
Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Your looks, presence, and creativity take you far, but the gods are insisting you emphasize higher learning, spirituality, and travel. You’re feeling this anyways, so pounce lion!
Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: This coming Aries season places extra emphasis for you on your carnal drives and how they relate to others. This may be uncomfortable for you as you seek perfection in all realms, but if you listen to and integrate these feelings, integration being your forte, there is no stopping you.
Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: The emphasis on partnerships continues, but remember that it is how others relate to you that matters. Whatever suitors come your way, remember you are forever the scales—judge wisely.
Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: There is a real opportunity this month for you to apply your enviable powers towards greater work ends. Though your sting is the most powerful in all of the zodiac, if you reimagine how you can use it towards better ends (think a vaccination as opposed to a virus), you may just hit the jackpot.
Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: Your own subjective creativity is just as important as your supposedly higher faculties. Though you are inclined to seek, search, and expand, your own drumbeat is just as critical this month.
Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: Ambition doesn’t always have to mean climbing to the top of the mountain. Act on matters of the home this month, not necessarily your forte, and you will succeed in all the ways you’ve been wanting.
Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: Though you excel in the higher realms of thought and knowledge, putting these visions into layperson’s terms is where it is at for you this month. A little simple, loving communication will go a long way for you.
Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: This is it; the magic finally breaks for you. It feels different—primordial, watery, cellular life embodied in a seed that can powerfully break forth into earthly form. Yes, your magical world can take shape.
