Both Mercury and Mars will be retrograde this month. For Mercury retrograde: all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur during this period. If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for research and going on retreats, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions and enacting any major plans. For Mars retrograde: count to ten before you take any action– caution and patience are your guides.
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) It’s been a year of many changes and courageous transformation. You’re doing all you can do to make a success of yourself and your projects. The big lesson for you is this– “Remember, you can always make your dreams come true!” Focus on your goal, and trust God to guide your pace and your footsteps.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) It’s time to take things in a different direction. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten so trust your vision and follow it to a successful conclusion. Commit to your vision, take courage and allow yourself to experience a new level of transformation, power, and success.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruling planet is Mercury and it will be going retrograde again on July 26th until August 19th. Though, not the most exciting time, this Mercury retrograde period provides you with the opportunity to clearly see where you stand and who stands with you. Set your sights on what you want, notice who encourages you, notice who attempts to get in your way and above all– keep putting one foot in front of the other.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “Know Thyself.” From this fountain of wisdom, all other forms of wealth spring and flow eternally. As you know and appreciate who you are and what makes you tick, you automatically give yourself permission to embrace and honor what works and to effortlessly release what doesn’t. As you reflect on the journey of your life, please keep in mind– “God Doesn’t Make Mistakes.”
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) This is a prolific time for you. The steps you take on this part of your journey lead to the end of a barren phase in your life. You are clearing away the rubble of the past and opening a wide path that leads you straight to the fulfillment of your hopes, wishes and dreams. During this journey– pay attention– you are powerfully guided and blessed with Divine Assistance. Someone from the past will give you important information, use it wisely.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your advice is similar to THE LOVERS. Your ruling planet is also Mercury and it’s retrograde from July 26th to August 19th. This retrograde period is more intense than usual because Mars, the planet of passion and how we take action, is also retrograde. Use this time to sort through your relationships and beliefs. Decide what’s worth being passionate about and take appropriate action.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) This is a time of Faith, Trust and Action– these three powerful energies are magical and your use of them will attract who and what you need to help you successfully accomplish your goals. Put your hopes and desires into words; put those words into action and you’ll achieve the success you’ve dreamt of and worked so hard for.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) The time is right for your plans to come to fruition. Use patience, faith and self-honesty as you give proper attention to this chapter in your life. You’re learning to listen to what your heart wants you to do and you’re planning with your head (remember when it used to be the other way around!). Give yourself permission to expect, accept and receive your bounty.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) It’s time to take your life back by turning the negative energy of fear into the positive power of faith with right action. Choose something you want to make happen in your life. Start with simple things, decide on a course of action for each one and follow through with it. With each victory, you build your faith, courage and strength. By the time you get to that big dream, you’ll have and be what it takes to make it come true!
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) As the old is being swept away from your life, don’t chase after it. Let it go. A Higher Power has made the decision to help you transform and enrich your life by removing what and who are no longer valid reflections of you. You will soon be able to choose from a better set of people and opportunities.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your opportunities to advance yourself in the world have never been stronger. It’s very important to keep your balance and let your intuition guide you through these last steps of a significant passage. Trust and go with your feelings– you won’t be sorry!
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Congratulations– you made it through the worst of the self-doubting days and now the Universe is ready to reward you for your perseverance. Be on the look-out for a lucrative offer from someone who can help you advance your career.
