ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month Jupiter is opposite Uranus in your Sun sign. This can benefit you as it increases personal energy. A sense of playfulness and joy may pervade you. Just be careful of being easily distracted by some new project. You are enthusiastic but possibly not organized enough to accomplish the task. The down side of this aspect is you just want to have fun. You could waste time and then suddenly when the playfulness is not there you are like the grasshopper who did nothing to prepare for the winter.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month enthusiasm is high but it needs some balance. Utilize your mindful awareness to keep from being scattered.
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.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month do breathing meditations or calm abiding techniques. Basically, desires are fleeting moments of illusory bliss. Even if we attain our desire, the happiness will not remain stable.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month there continues to be a high possibility of feeling over analytical. Saturn and the Sun are running in opposition to your Sun sign. It means you have powerful analytical energy. Don’t let your thoughts turn to being critical or judgmental. It is a good time to speak publicly and inspire love and compassion as you are influential, especially in the first weeks of December.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month use your powerful intellect to influence people in a positive direction. In the later weeks of December your power of persuasion is still strong but not as focused.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month might have some interesting things happen. Pluto and Mercury are in Sagittarius and opposite your Sun sign. Pluto effects the deeper emotional life and the body. You can use this aspect positively with meditations of faith, for example Guru Yoga. Negatively you might want to be aware of fluctuations of mood. Pluto can only effect you if you have the causes for physical or emotional problems. If you take care of your diet and the way you think, you can limit the negative influences.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month move your feelings to the intuitive level. Let a vision or inner sense of clarity inspire you. Things that happen may have links and connections far beyond your normal vision of life.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month is basically quite good. The Sun, Mars and Saturn all sit well positioned to your Sun sign. There are no direct planets in your sign but these aspects outweigh the minor unsettling aspects of other planets at other angles. Because Saturn and the Sun are well positioned most of the month you can plan on being busy and have astrological help to keep up to the brisk pace of Christmas.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month move gracefully and use your good energy to help others.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month there are no planets in your Sun sign. The month may start with some problems with a square from the Sun and Saturn but this will finish quickly. The month of December ends well building sense of enthusiasm and intuition. The reason is Mars and Neptune will run opposite Virgo. Be careful be creating illusions. To avoid that have a good motivation like Bodhicitta.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month review your motivation and aspirations. It is always good to review what one is doing to ensure it is meaningful and progressive for your deeper, heartfelt goals.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month you have Jupiter in your Sun sign with a direct opposition of Uranus. That means a lot of energy to do things. Basically you should feel quite positive with beneficial aspects from the Sun and Saturn. Saturn will help balance the enthusiasm with stable pragmatism. Maintain a contemplative nature and you will use the inspiration to accomplish a meaningful life.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. Balance your energy with your normal sense of pragmatism. Make sure thoughtful mindfulness plays a role in your decisions.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month you also 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.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month you are free of passion, so use the time skillfully. Make your decisions work in harmony with your greater goals.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month you are full of wisdom. The Sun and Saturn are conjunct and running through Sagittarius. It is a good month to be mindful. Saturn for a Buddhist is a great planet. Saturn loves the meditative lifestyle of Buddhists. By being mindful and contemplative daily one feels little insecurity. Insecurity is the fuel for Saturn’s negative effects. Therefore, thoughtful Buddhists don’t experience the negative effects of Saturn, instead Saturn deepens meditative experience and reflection for them.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month do not move on your inspirations too quickly, rather observe them first. It is a good time to develop insight into the nature of enthusiasm and that requires a peaceful moment for the insight to develop.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
This month you have good aspects for the feelings of love, intelligence and faith. The reason is you have Venus together with Pluto in your Sun sign for the first week of December and this changing to Mercury and Pluto in the last weeks. What is nice is if you look at the evening sky at about 8 PM you can see them there influencing you. They are the bright planets on the western horizon. Pretty to look at and jewels of the sky. The influence is beneficial for good hearted meditation, especially because it is Christmas time!
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. For this month, just be loving and supportive. That is the Christmas spirit and you have lots of it.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This month there is great energy leading you to all the right places. The first week has Mars in your Sun sign and then in the last weeks Venus. Therefore, your life activities are led by willfulness and followed up with affection. What is a good activity to do? Be a Bodhisattva and wish others to be happy. Offer love and peace to the world. That is the Christmas spirit.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month be the Bodhisattva you always wanted to be. Just do it.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This month starts with agitation. That is because Saturn and the Sun are squaring Neptune in Pisces. This will change by midmonth with a sense of peace but until then you want to be careful of reckless activity. Slowdown in the first weeks and be mindful. Watch out for critical thoughts of others when you should be sharing the good Christmas spirit. The month ends with a growing sense of purpose as Mars will conjunct Neptune.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month be peaceful, happy and useful around the Christmas table. Prior to Christmas be mindful of your intentions.
