ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month starts slowly with the square of Pluto to Uranus which has been effecting you for months. It will get more complicated by the end of the second week as the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto will all be square to Aries. So definitely slow down, do lots of breathing meditation and be mindful. It is not the end of the world but if you act out impulsive thoughts things will get complicated. Just be careful of being distracted if you focus on the negative things in life. The aspect makes you emotional.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month deep feelings are intense and need some balance. Utilize your mindful awareness to keep from being dark or morbid about negative things. Bodhicitta can protect you from those sorts of feelings.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month you are free of direct astrological influences. This is a good opportunity to mention that life is not just your astrology chart. The more mindful and aware you are, the more you have freedom from all aspects of influence. For example the male and female Bodhisattvas and Buddhas are part of the world and involved in the interplay of influences but they remain clear minded and of a beneficial nature. Keep this in mind and you will find inspiration to live a meaningful life. What is beneficial is an opposition aspect with Saturn and this can help your analytical meditations profound. Utilize the blessing.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month might have some interesting things happen. Pluto, Venus and Mercury are opposite your Sun sign. Pluto effects our deeper emotional life and our body.

Negatively you might want to be aware of your body and changes taking place. Pluto can only effect you if you have the causes for physical problems. If you take care of your diet and exercise you limit negative influences. The last days of December are going to be very powerful as the Sun comes conjunct Pluto. Be more mindful during that time.
