This time of year can remind of us of the freshness available to us each day with the growing sunlight and the hope in dewdrops that paint blossoms every morning. Our readings this week suggest we use this time to find the freshness within.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
When you actually look up from your daily tasks to observe the world around you, what you will notice is a trail of inspiration meant to be followed like breadcrumbs to something truly amazing. Open your heart to the paths that emerge and allow adventure shake up your schedule.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
One phenomenon of friendship is that everyone has their role to play. And when you think about it, what you really love about your friends is not what you have in common but the unique contributions and the colors that they add to your life. Resist the desire to be like everyone else, we are all meant to be marvelous in our own kind of way.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Nothing makes me shudder like the past. Memories can haunt us like ghosts when we dwell on mistakes and misfortune. But it’s important to have compassion for your former self. What you know now you did not know then, and there is no value in what could have been. Turn anxiety into appreciation that there have been twists and turns that you found a way to grow around. You did your best, forget the rest.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
There is a subtle charm to laying low every now and then. Despite the pressure to be somebody, to go big or home, there is something sacred in the permission in this world to be plain and simple, a ripple in the sea. Take it easy this week, Gemini.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
You are never a final product and you will never arrive at how the story ends. Even after we leave this earth our legacy lives on in the ways we brushed up against the world. Find harmony with the arc of your growth and development. Exciting things await when you let life tell you your story, and not the other way around.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Upgrades are not just for airplane seats, expedited shipping and cell phones. Making upgrades to self, perspective and lifestyles is a benefit that is worth the time and cost. You are a Very Important Person (VIP) Leo. You know this. Treat yourself as such. Get the upgrade.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Therapy is not always necessary because you’re crazy, but because the world is always crazy. So whether it’s retail therapy, beach therapy, friend therapy, sunset therapy, therapy therapy… get your therapy on, your mind right and your heart at ease. It’s time to find that respite to protect you temporarily from this crazy crazy world.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
There has to be a solid purpose for how Virgo sees the world. You have been given a smorgasbord of gifts, including noticing, appreciating and ability. While your talents may feel like a tedious task that is never done, consider the possibility that you were sent here to have fun with it. See the delight in what you do. Recognize how it fulfills you because we love to see you fulfilled.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
We have all been guilty of worrying if other people like us or not without spending much time observing if we appreciate them and their energy. And it’s not that either is good or either is bad, but sometimes things just don’t blend. Be willing to see your role in missed connections and accept it for what it is: an opportunity to understand yourself better.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Every Sagittarius I know is an extremely forgiving person. In case you need reminding: forgiveness is not permission, but a release and letting go. And in order for all to be for all to be forgiven you have to learn how to forgive yourself. The time is ripe for letting go. Letting go is how the seeds spread and new things can grow.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
There is a reason we don’t run screaming from our homes when times get tough, is called love. Even though we have responsibilities, challenges and occasional drama, we ultimately love our lives and the people that fill it. This is why we put up with so much. Times, they have been tough. When tested, focus on the love and all those beautiful reasons “why”.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Think of a time you felt absolutely loved. It could be a moment with the ocean, an embrace from another or seeing the sky paint a rainbow just for you. Remember that you have access to these moments of intense joy and attention at any time, there in your mind. This week, let your imagination drift to those wonderful places and times in the past. They beckon to you, to remind you that you are loved.
