ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month sees the Sun, Venus and Mercury all opposite your Sun sign. That can mean you feel distracted and unsettled. This is even stronger for you because Uranus is in Aries, so expect the unexpected. What can help is Mercury’s assistance in contemplative meditations. As Aries likes to be active and motivated I would recommend you slow down and review your intentions. The month could be full of activities that lack focus if you act without forethought.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month slow down and review your motives. Contemplate on meaningful actions and practice mindfulness when distraction arises.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month has the feeling of being agitated. The reason is Saturn and Mercury are opposite your Sun sign. Therefore slow down and don’t create fantasies about the grass being greener on the other side of the hill. This agitation will effect you the first week of the month and so be aware of your thoughts and actions. After October 7th Saturn will help you with contemplative meditations if you put some time aside to do that.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month your mind is contemplative of possibilities. It is a good month to meditate on Bodhicitta, the ultimate altruistic attitude. Your meditations will stimulate growth of your love and compassion.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month life is fairly comfortable. The Sun, Venus, Mars and Uranus are harmoniously aspected to your Sun sign. Therefore do activities that you enjoy and know the stars are on your side. It is similar to having good friends that support what you do. This influence lasts the whole month of October so you may accomplish many good tasks if you motivate correctly.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month go with the flow of virtue and create lots of positive karma. While the weather is sunny make hay, when the circumstances are good, create good karma.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month go slowly. The Sun, Venus, Pluto, Uranus and Mercury are square or opposite to Cancer. Basically do small actions that have a higher possibility of success. Big events might become complicated. These aspects are not the end of the world and as an example if it is raining and you have an umbrella you don’t get wet. If you are mindful you don’t have problems.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month be reflective and patient. Patience is a wonderful virtue and Saturn gives you a blessing this month. Patience comes from understanding that aggression is not the best way to resolve issues. Compassion is a far better way to deal with all situations. It helps both you and others.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month you have Jupiter, Uranus and Mars well aspected to help you accomplish tasks. Just be careful you are not too controlling of the progression of your projects. Saturn squares Jupiter all of the month and although you have lots of energy you could make it complicated by micromanaging things.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month no planets are in Virgo but Neptune effects you from a distance. It is a good month to be more aware of your dream life. We can get good indications of our progress or errors by being mindful of our dreams. Do remember that dreams are just like signposts on the road to enlightenment. You don’t pick up the signs as you drive down the road, you merely note them and adjust your vehicle.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month start slowly to avoid mistakes and then have fun, dream the impossible dream.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month is your birthday month. Don’t forget to send a card to your parents to thank them for this rebirth. If they have passed away then do a meditation in deep appreciation of the rebirth they gave you. Even if life has been complicated, the main thing is you have the Dharma. You will find the month starts a little grumpy as the Sun is squared by Pluto opposite Uranus. So start by planning to do good things and at the end of the month you actualize those positive projects.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. The balance this month is between activity and thoughtfulness. You will be active at month’s end so be thoughtful now, that gives you balance later this month.

The rest of the month will be fine as long as you maintain your mindfulness.
