ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Uranus in your sign is putting some strong effects on you. Square Pluto and the Sun for the first week and Pluto, Mercury and Jupiter in the last 10 days. So I would recommend going slowly with activities. Health could be effected if you already have the seeds of illness. Astrology can’t create an illness but it might help something manifest. So slow down, take care of yourself and don’t make big plans. Things will get out of hand quickly if you move too fast.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month motivate to be quiet and peaceful. Be the true definition of a Buddhist, an inner person, and this means to focus on inner qualities and not on outer goals.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
If Aries was told to slow down you can rely on the suggestion to move forward. The Sun and Jupiter are well aspected to your sign for all the month. This is increased by good aspects with Mercury and Mars at the end of the month. All these planets sit in water signs that support the basic element of Taurus, earth. Saturn is also helpful and so your meditations may be quite insightful. Saturn is opposite but constantly well aspected by the four planets I mentioned before.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. Use a strong emotion based goal like Bodhicitta or Metta meditation for this month. Those meditations support the power of the planets aspected to your Sun sign.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month you are free of direct planetary influence. Uranus and Venus support you and Neptune slightly bothers you. This can mean you are a emotionally playful and under some romantic illusions. So write some wild poetry or sing some romantic songs. Enjoy it while it lasts. You and Sagittarius are similar and so if you have some Sag friends get together and have fun
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. Your big month was June with your birthday and all sorts of planets giving you energy. This month reflect on the impermanent nature of life. The party is over and you have to take the ups with the downs. As Lord Buddha said, “All that rises will fall.”
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Happy birthday. Well, you have a wonderful time ahead of you. Jupiter, Mars, the Sun and Mercury give you lots to talk about. Uranus is square and Pluto opposite all those planets and so you might not say the most appropriate things all the time. You have a lot of energy effecting you. That means that your lack of mindfulness is the only potential problem. It is like a sunny day for the whole month. Be careful not to get sun burnt.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month your emotional life is strong, so infuse it with Bodhicitta. The wish to benefit others has so many benefits to both others and yourself. Meditate constantly on the Bodhicitta and even your sleep will become a source of enlightenment.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Happy birthday. Your affection knows no bounds. Venus are in your sign and running well aspected to Uranus and then directly opposite to Neptune. Think of a pendulum swinging back and forth between affection and intuitive imagination. You are full of new options and possibilities. Back and forth you go! Therefore your spiritual practice may shift a little more toward form, color and feelings which is good for Tantric meditations in Buddhist terms.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. Know you could convince anyone to look at spiritual practice. Your strong point is the depth of feelings and imagination. Therefore be mindful of the amount of energy that comes out of you. Monitor it like a water hose, not too much water nor too little, just the right amount to moisten the minds of others.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
If Aries was told to slow down you can rely on the suggestion to move forward. Jupiter, Mars, the Sun, Neptune and Mercury all sit in signs that support Virgo. That will translate into energy and intelligence as supportive factors helping you attain your goals.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. Move on activities that require clear minded energy. Any meditations involving decisiveness and intelligence are good this month.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Well it is a good month to stop most of what you strive for and relax. An aggressive attitude could cause problems. The Sun, Jupiter, Mars and Mercury are square your sign. This is a good set of aspects for the Perfection of Patience. It is not a good time to be focused on personal goals. The reason is your mind has the possibility of being confused by the Mercury retrograde and square.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. The intellect and the will power cause problems when decisions are being made. The reason is the intellect and the energy are impulsive. This balancing act is a hard one for anyone, therefore as the wise sages of the past have said, “Go Slowly with mindfulness.”
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month is great for meditation. Saturn is in your sign with good aspects to Jupiter, the Sun, mars and Neptune. Be happy and do as you please. Be generous and kind, those activities are always beneficial. As Saturn is benefited by meditation your self confidence and capacity are excellent this month. Be a little carful of attachments getting in the way. Venus squares all this good energy and could pollute you with desires that are not so useful.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. Your passion-o-meter is low this month with the reflectiveness of Saturn. Just be mindful and do good works. What more could we ask of anyone?
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month you are free of direct planetary influence. Uranus and Venus support you and Neptune slightly bothers you. This can mean you are a emotionally playful and under some romantic illusions. So write some wild poetry or sing some romantic songs. Enjoy it while it lasts. You and Gemini are similar and so if you have some Gemini friends get together and have fun.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. Meditate on Bodhicitta. This month inspiration comes from feelings mixed with ideals. Be aware of your feelings and don’t think that a vision is just image related. Feelings are visionary too.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
You have to deal with a powerful month of dualities. Pluto in Capricorn sits directly opposite the Sun, Jupiter and finally Mercury plus with a square to Uranus. This means you have to weigh your actions carefully. If you over emphasize one direction you may find yourself deeply concerned about the opposite issues you did not see at first. It is a good month to be thoughtful. Do lots of contemplative meditations.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. A time of deep wisdom is here, so enter into this month by developing a thoughtful attitude.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This month you are free of direct planetary influence. Uranus and Venus support you though with romantic inspiration. This can mean you are a emotionally playful and under some romantic illusions. So write some wild poetry or sing some romantic songs. Enjoy it while it lasts. You, Sagittarius and Gemini are similar and so if you have some Sag and Gemini friends get together and have fun..
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month only do altruistic meditations, especially Bodhicitta related. Planetary aspects can help your realizations, but you have to do the meditations to reap the support. Don’t daydream about meditating, do it!
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This month has Neptune in your sign with the Sun, Jupiter, Saturn and then Mars and Mercury totally energize you. If you have been feeling agitated it is because of these planets. The positive side of it is that the Sun, Jupiter, Mercury and Mars all support you. Therefore go after your goals. No more daydreaming. Seek to accomplish even the impossible, you have the support.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month drop all inhibitions and move on your visions. If you don’t act now when there are supportive astrological aspects, then when could you do it? Reflect that life is impermanent and you don’t want to be known as a procrastinator.
