ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Well it is a good month to stop most of what you strive for and relax. The last three weeks there is an influence where an aggressive attitude could cause problems. The Sun first and later Mars will be square to Uranus in Aries. This is a good set of aspects for the Perfection of Patience. It is not a good time to be focused on personal goals as you are too intense. The reason is your mind has the possibility of being impulsive with the Sun squaring Uranus and then aggressive with the square to Mars.
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 Mars are well aspected and thus stimulating lots of energy. This will effect you for the first part of the month and during the whole of July Pluto will be beneficially positioned to Taurus. Be mindful that your deeper emotional life is supportive of your goals.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. Use an 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)
You have supportive energy from Jupiter and Venus for this month. Be mindful of what fascinates you as these two planets can make your desires appear too attractive. It is a good aspect though and so a generous sense of love and affection pervade you. Couple this with your altruistic wish to be helpful to all and you will be very successful.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. Your big month was June with your birthday and all sorts of inspiration. This month do some of the things you were inspired about last month.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Happy birthday. Well, you have a wonderful time ahead of you. The Sun and Mars give you the energy to do great things. Uranus will run square in the middle and last part of the month and so be careful of being overly enthusiastic. A lack of mindfulness could cause potential problems. It is similar to sunny weather for the whole month but be careful not to get sun burnt. Avoid over stimulating yourself.
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 Bodhicitta and even your sleep will become a source of enlightenment.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Happy birthday. Your mind knows no bounds. Jupiter and Venus are in your sign this month, stimulating enthusiastic love. Think of it like a lot of electricity between affection and enthusiasm. You will be a great source of warmth for others. Be careful in the last week though as Saturn will be square and you could feel frustrated that others are not as loving as you are. Don’t be judgmental of others.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month you stimulate others with affection and thus motivate them to be better people. That is a good quality to always emulate.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
If Aries was told to slow down you can rely on the suggestion to move forward. Mars, Pluto, Neptune, Saturn and the Sun all sit in signs that support Virgo. That will translate into energy, faith, intuition and confidence as supportive factors helping you attain your goals. It is a good month, do positive things.
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 contemplate things. The reason is Uranus is opposite and squaring the Sun and Mars. If you wish to be impulsive then there are great aspects for that. If you wish to maintain some balance (which is important for Libra) then slow down and be mindful of your actions. Let each breath be filled with peaceful thoughts.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. The intellect has strength in contemplative activities therefore as the wise sages of the past have said, “Go Slowly with mindfulness.”
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month Scorpio has Saturn making you contemplative. It is a good month to reflect that all that glitters is not gold. The reason is Saturn squares Jupiter and Venus for all the month. The effect on you will be one of pensive hesitation regarding the pursuit of pleasure. Happiness and pleasure are enjoyable but we should not exaggerate them into something more than what they are, impermanent experiences that never last.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. Your passion-o-meter is low this month. Just be mindful and offer support to others. What more could we ask of anyone?
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
You have supportive energy from Uranus, Jupiter, Venus and finally the Sun and Mercury this month. Be mindful that when you have a revelation you don’t jump off your meditation mat to pursue it. Slow down and digest the experience before you get up. It is a good time to do things and strive to perfect yourself, just do it slowly and mindfully.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. Meditate on Bodhicitta. This month inspiration comes from the desire to be good. 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. The Sun and Mars sit in direct opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This means you have to weigh your actions carefully. If you over emphasize one direction you may find yourself confused and dissatisfied. It is a good month to be thoughtful. Do lots of contemplative meditations.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. A time of deep feelings is here and so enter into this month by developing a thoughtful attitude.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You have Jupiter and Venus running opposite to Aquarius the whole month. Be careful where your thoughts lead you. Your enthusiastic affection motivates you. Feel inspired and think in positive terms of what could happen by helping others. Work with a positive perspective and keep yourself grounded with a few mindful breaths.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month only do altruistic meditations, especially Bodhicitta. Planetary aspects can help your realizations but you have to do the meditation to reap the support. Don’t daydream about meditating, do it!
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This month the Sun and Mars work to motivate your imagination and intuition. Neptune is in Pisces and that means many years of visionary experiences are ahead of you. The positive side of it is that the Sun and Mars support this intuition. 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? Reflect that life is impermanent and you don’t want to be known as a procrastinator.
