ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month you have the Sun and Mercury sitting harmoniously aspected to Uranus in Aries in the first weeks of the month. This means the Uranus is supported by confidence and your mind. Mercury is moving retrograde though, and so be careful of miscommunication. The last ten days will have Mercury moving forward and giving better intellectual assistance to Uranus. Jupiter will also be supportive to Uranus which uplifts your personal energy significantly. Use the stimulation well.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month do quietude meditations in the first weeks and then contemplative meditations in the last weeks of February.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month starts with Venus, Mars and Neptune well aspected to Taurus. That translates into good intuition, energy and affection supporting you from afar. The Sun will do this in the last days of February bestowing good self-confidence. Astrology is only an influence and our awareness and wisdom are the most important aspects of our decisions. Samsara is unreliable and as long as our mind is confused it will always bring us suffering.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month think about activity twice before you act. Wisdom and compassion should always motivate your actions.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all sit harmoniously aspected to Gemini. That means your good will and self-confidence work to your advantage. Use those qualities to benefit others and then the influences become part of your dharma practice. The last ten days has Saturn opposite Gemini and square to a conjunction of the Sun and Neptune. Slow down and be contemplative in those days. Contemplation and meditation help Saturn have a more beneficial effect on you.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month use your intuition together with your desire to be helpful. Intuition has different sources of inspiration and it does not always have to be an idea that awakens insight.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month we continue with an opposition of Pluto and a square of Uranus. Cancer itself is free of planet and so the effects of that square are not problematic. It is always good to be attentive of our thoughts and actions. Be mindful to avoid physical agitation or being grumpy. Astrologically there are no other concerns at this time.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month motivate with a clear mind. Your feelings play a big role in your life but it is important to also reflect on the significance of things with your intelligence.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month life is very energetic. The Sun is opposite your Sun sign and this can make you feel distracted. You may enter February with some trepidation. You can find yourself too busy with many things to accomplish but not enough time. Slow down and do one thing at a time.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month start actions with a clear motivation and the expectation that if something is beneficial for you and others it takes time to manifest.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month you start off with Venus, Mars and Neptune opposite Virgo. That can translate into dreaming and agitating over desires. Reason is Neptune stimulates imagination, Venus desires and Mars the wish to act. Therefore be mindful of chasing desires that are unreasonable. Slow down, do breathing meditation and be at peace with life. The Tibetans have a saying, “A person with many desires knows little satisfaction.”
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month have no expectations about orderliness and you will do well.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month Uranus and Jupiter are well aspected to the sign of Libra. There are no direct planets in Libra and so the effect is beneficial but minimal. Therefore enjoy end of the winter months and tidy things up in preparation for spring. There is an energetic blessing and so use the energy to wake up from the winter doldrums.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. This month balance inner wisdom with the potential outer actions.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month it might be good to slow down and double check your intention. The reason is the Sun and Jupiter sit square your Sun sign. This aspect is made more powerful with Jupiter being strongly involved. That means lots of energy to distract your thoughts and generate an overactive imagination. Slow down and check up on what you are planning on doing. The stimulation will only last the first weeks of February.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month slow down. That’s all.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month it is good to meditate on the nature of samsara. Saturn in Sagittarius helps you be contemplative and it will be square Neptune and Venus in the first week of February and then the Sun and Neptune in the last days of the month. This aspect is good for meditators because you can see the illusory nature of pleasure clearly. Having fun is good but we should never exaggerate it into something more than a passing bliss.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month sit and meditate before you start each day. A clear motivation plays a huge role in personal success, let alone on the scale of one’s whole life.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
This month Pluto runs in your Sign. The influence can mean deep feelings pervade your thoughts and actions. This can apply to areas of love, affection, faith and devotion. Do Guru Yoga meditations and you can use the beneficial influences of Pluto. Your affection gets a nice boost in the first week with a positive aspect with Venus and Neptune. Good time to write some poetry if you wish to.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. This month reflect on some nice things you would like to do during the first week of the month. What you think will manifest into reality and so have positive thoughts to stimulate good results.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This is the birthday month. Offer thanks to your parents for giving you this rebirth. They are the ones that really deserve the presents. You would not have met the dharma or the great teachers if you did not have this body. It is a good time to rejoice and offer thanks to all that supports you. This month is great for intuitive work. This effects you in the last ten days of the month. Use the beneficial aspects of intuition for important decisions you have to make. Sometimes intuition is more useful than the intellect.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month shine like the Sun at midday. It is your birthday; share the good energy with everyone.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This is the birthday month. Offer thanks to your parents for giving you this rebirth. They are the ones that really deserve the presents. You would not have met the dharma or the great teachers if you did not have this body. It is a good time to rejoice and offer thanks to all that supports you. This month your mind starts to get active. You have Venus and Neptune increasing your artistic abilities. That will shift over to wonderful dreams and visualizations in the last weeks. Reason is the Sun will conjunct Neptune.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month balance your imagination with a mindful sensation of peace. Your mind has many enlightening qualities and this month altruistic love and meditative insights are available.
