ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month Mars, Uranus, Venus, Mercury, and the Sun will pass through your sign for most of the month. Pluto will be square those planets during this time and so a feeling based planet will affect your energy, intellect, and feelings. Because Pluto is in a square aspect it can mean you are moody and despondent. Remember astrology only has a strong impact if you are not being conscious of your actions and decisions. Be mindful and maintain a positive attitude. That will help.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. Your speech is blessed astrologically this month and Manjursri’s blessings will be available. This is useful to help you manage your mood and temperament during the last two weeks of the month.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month is free of any direct planetary influence. Mars is the only planet of consequence effecting you in the last weeks of March and that can give you enthusiasm to get jobs done. Remember astrology influences you per the environment you are living in. Those in the northern hemisphere are awakening to spring. Taurus loves to work and springtime is a good time to start new projects.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month basically do any positive action you wish to be involved in. There are no problems except the ones you make for yourself by not being mindful.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month starts with some problems but by mid-month it all turns around and is positive. The problems are Saturn in opposition to Gemini and being square to the Sun and Uranus. Just be mindful of your sensitivity. Don’t over react to situations where you feel criticized by others. Use the Buddhist idea of “Peace in every step” and you will manage all situations.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month you have the power of the Sun, Neptune, and Mercury helping you be insightful and decisive in the first weeks of March. They are harmoniously positioned to your sign. Just be mindful of your actions as Uranus, Venus, and Mars will be square at various times during this time. Slow down and be reflective even if things seem to be progressing smoothly.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month do activities that are positive and beneficial for others. That is not astrological advice. That is just plain “good karma advice.”

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month continues with lots of energy. Jupiter sits opposite Mars and Uranus, which means enthusiasm is stimulated by will power and spontaneity.

Be mindful of your actions and don’t try to accomplish too many tasks at the same time.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. This month remember the advice above and avoid errors.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month the big thing is Mars being opposite your sign. It will not happen until the last two weeks of March and can cause you to be agitated. Remember that distractions are because of lacking mindfulness, not because of external situations. If you give your power away to external situations, then you will never solve your problems.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month the other side of the mountain always seems more wonderful. Be mindful of your desires and slow down. The grass is green where you are, you must look for it.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Feelings are still important as Saturn is in your sign for ages to come. This month starts with good energy as Mars and Uranus are positioned comfortably to Saturn. As the middle of the month arrives things will change and you could feel agitated. This is caused by a square of Venus and the Sun to Saturn. We must remember that situations are never static, we are always in the dynamics of impermanence.
