ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month you have the Sun, Mercury and Venus running square your sign for the first few weeks. Take into consideration the summer has started, it is hot and you might like to relax. These aspects basically mean you should have no expectation of what will transpire as the month progresses. Be open-minded. What you want and what you get might differ slightly. It will change after the third week to more beneficial aspects. Make plans to be more active in those last ten days.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month have no material motives and just be aware in each moment. That is the real practice of mindfulness.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month you have a great sense of joy and pleasure. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto and Venus are all well aspected to Taurus. They are effecting you from a distance in other signs but the support is still there. Therefore, be mindful of what is happening and look beyond the immediate situation. Something from outside your immediate circle of awareness may bring happiness to you.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month you may have to look beyond the immediate situation to understand what is happening. Just because you can’t see something does not mean it does not exist.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month the party is over and all the planets have moved to other signs. You do have supportive aspects from Uranus and Saturn which can translate into the power to make good decisions.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month is the birthday month. Don’t forget to send a present to your parents to say thank you for the body you currently have. Even if they have passed away, do some meditation and send the good energy to them in their new rebirth. The month is full of energy with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all in Cancer. Be slightly careful most of the month as all these planets will run square to Uranus. That can mean you are excessive in your desires. Don’t overindulge, even if you like something a lot. Basically enjoy the month, just avoid being impulsive.

Even if they have passed away, do some meditation and send the good energy to them in their new rebirth.

That will then be followed by Mercury and finally the Sun. So enjoy July and be a positive influence on those around you.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month the energy expresses affection in an abundant manner so practice Immeasurable Joy, the thought that may all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
The month starts with great energy. You have Jupiter in Virgo with good aspects to Pluto, Mercury, the Sun and Venus. All that means happiness and joy. It is the summer time and so enjoy the weather and activities. As the month continues this will diminish as some of those planets move forward and out of aspect. That does not mean you cannot be positive and joyful, it just means you don’t have as much astrological support for those feelings.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month is a good time to be active and to help others accomplish their goals. Be careful of how much energy you expend but know that you have great ability to be helpful.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month you have to slow down. Sun, Mercury and Venus are square and you will find satisfaction is not easy to attain. Just go slowly and be mindful. It is a great month to do a retreat. You will gain insights that are not easily available all the time, especially about desire and satisfaction. The Tibetans say, “One with many desires knows little satisfaction.” This astrological effect will only last for the first two weeks and then things will start to improve for you.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. This month go slowly and be mindful and reflective. It is a great month to have realizations that strike close to the bone. The Zen bones of reality.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month things are going well. The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Neptune all support you from a distance. You do have Mars in Scorpio and that means having energy to accomplish great things. Considering you have beneficial aspects in the first weeks, then strive to accomplish bigger projects. Basically do whatever you please, just make sure it is of virtue and possibly for the benefit of more than yourself. There is much you can do with a positive motive.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month be positively passionate. That means be passionate about your positive activities.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month Saturn moves in Sagittarius but has a complicated aspect with Neptune. That can mean your intuition is not working to benefit you. Be careful of superstition clouding your judgment. The month starts slowly but will end with a sense of positive determination. When you get to the middle of the month Venus and Mercury will move into positive positions with Saturn and help you. Remember if you have a good attitude you don’t need astrology to support you. Focus on stable intensions and all is possible.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month be clear minded about your motivation. A good motivation can transform any situation. Remember the 7 Point Mind Transformation text that says, “Bring all to the Path.”
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
This month slow down and meditate the whole month. The Sun, Mercury and Venus are opposite to Pluto and your Sun sign. That is a great opportunity to be reflective and contemplative about your deep feelings and desires. Don’t have many ambitions, just be peaceful and wise. This month you are applying your meditative abilities to limit the distractions of errant desires. The Sun, Mercury and Venus aspects stimulate your feelings and faith.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. This month do just that. There is no more to say!
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This month you are empty of planets and even of strong aspects. You do have Uranus benefiting you but that just adds a quality of spontaneity to your activities. Remember that astrology is only an influence and that your motivation with your wisdom, compassion and awareness are far more important. These astrology reports are like a weather report, they just tell you to take an umbrella or put on sun screen. If you are aware you don’t need to be told to do those things.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month make your intelligence strong. Use it in productive activities.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This month starts with a sense of possible frustration. The reason is Saturn is behind Pisces and squaring Neptune. Neptune in Pisces is good for intuition and visions but the Saturn aspect slows that down. Therefore, practice patience if you find your meditations don’t progress as you would like. Remember, meditation cycles go up and down and in this case it looks like a down cycle for you. That does not stop you being positive, it just limits some of the intuition you might normally have access to.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month work at the Perfection of Patience. Remember, joy in positive actions, even with patience, reinforces them more than any other emotion.
