ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month Uranus is still in Aries. Therefore, I would be open minded for new and different things to happen. Uranus is always a stimulating planet and if one has a rigid attitude then Uranus can be disruptive. If one is open to change then Uranus is a blessing as it stimulates totally new perspectives on existing situations.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month cultivate good relationships. Meditations on love and compassion are excellent supports to the development of personal good qualities and good friendships.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month you have a quiet start to the month and then things get exciting. Jupiter and Neptune are well aspected to Taurus all of the month. This is good for intuitive restructuring of things. The main stimulations for you comes after the 10th of February as Jupiter, Venus, the Sun and Mercury all start blessing you. That means you are supported from a distance by very constructive astrological aspects. Do whatever seems appropriate, you have the blessings to accomplish a lot.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month be present to what transpires in your immediate environment. Speculation can be useful as it opens the door new ideas. Be present, enthusiastic and compassionate.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month things are basically good. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Uranus all support you from a distance. These are secondary influences to help you be happy and intelligent. Astrology is just an influence like the weather. This means right now the conditions are good but you have to be aware of unexpected showers from other aspects of influence in your life. That would be a realistic view of things.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month be friendly and inspirational. Gemini has a strong intellectual capacity so be mindful of your speech and be supportive verbally of others.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This month everything seems related to deep feelings. This is very good for Guru Yoga practices and faith. The reason is Pluto is opposite Cancer but well aspected to Jupiter all the month of February. Therefore, Jupiter’s good energy elevates the deep feelings that stimulate you from Pluto’s opposition. This will be increased from the 10th of February onward as Venus, Mercury, the Sun and Neptune will come into a positive aspect to Cancer.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month be reflective emotionally. Do meditations that increase your faith. A good month to be mindful of the blessings of having a Guru.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month you might have an enlightening moment in the first three weeks. The Sun, Venus and Mercury are conjunct and in opposition to your sign. That is great for profound insights provided you are not materialistically focused. This aspect could cause materialists to be confused and full of doubts. People with a spiritual vision will see the expanse of the sky as never before. It only lasts for the two weeks and so keep your spiritual eyes open.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month look at the world with the eyes of a yogi/yogini. Keep your vision on the grand scheme of things, not the little details.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month life is lively with Neptune, Venus, the Sun and Mercury are running in opposition to your sign. This effect is increased after the second week of February. Be more mindful at that time. Expect life to be full and unpredictable. If you are open-minded then you may find yourself excited with the progression of events. If you have a defensive attitude and are closed-minded then life might be unsettling. Be mindful of yourself as that is the best protection.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month you are running on intuition. Keep an eye on your ethical conduct. If you do something negative remember guilt is a double negative (you did something hurtful and you feel bad about yourself) whereas regret sees the problem as negative and helps you avoid repeating them in the future.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month life seems bearable. Uranus sits opposite Libra but has no negative aspects. Uranus is moving forward swiftly at this time. Be happy and share good feelings. You have an enthusiastic stimulation that will help you utilize your time to accomplish positive activities.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. This month life is good as you have a meditative nature. Do actions that benefit your neighborhood and community. Buddhists should express their positive qualities and influence the world constructively and this month is good for that.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month Jupiter runs in Scorpio and is well aspected to Pluto. The Sun, Venus and Mercury sit square your sign for a short time in the first ten days of February and that might make you a little confused. Midmonth your ability to speak and express affection are strong, so focus on being friendly and all should go well. As Atisha the great Indian saint says, “All suffering can be laid on the doorstep of self-cherishing.” Don’t focus on yourself, instead be aware of others and help them.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month be careful of confusion in the first week. You are prone to creating an illusion about yourself. Remember samsara is an illusion too, so don’t worry as everything you do is just relative to the moment and has no ultimately permanence.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month should go well for you. Mars is in Sagittarius and the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune and Uranus all support you from a distance. These are secondary influences to help you be happy and intelligent. Astrology is just an influence like the weather. This means right now the conditions are good, but you have to be aware of unexpected showers from other aspects of influence in your life. That would be a realistic view of things.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month your enthusiasm is running well. Therefore, do positive things and be helpful to others.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
This month everything seems related to deep feelings. This is very good for Guru Yoga practices and faith. The reason is Pluto is in Capricorn and well aspected to Jupiter all the month of February. Therefore, Jupiter’s good energy elevates the deep feelings that stimulate you from Pluto. It is a good month to focus on faith, intelligent belief in what the Buddha taught.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. This month be mindful of what direction you choose to go in. Faith plays a good role in your activities and so resonate with what you do and you will have a lot of power.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
This month you are the center of the universe. First off it is your birthday! Celebrate by phoning your mother and thanking her for the rebirth. Even if you don’t get along with your mother, she still gave you the opportunity to meet the Dharma and work on your issues. She deserves a hug from you or at least a prayer if she has passed on. The Sun and Mercury are conjunct for the first week of February. This is increased with a beneficial aspect to Uranus. You close the month with many dreams and altruistic ideas. It is a good time to meditate and pray with a Bodhicitta motivation.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month universal responsibility is so obvious to you it is hard to understand why everyone is not working for social justice and human rights. Be mindful of your speech, it is both a source of inspiration and also a weapon that inflames situations.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
This month you are the center of the universe. First off it is your birthday! Celebrate by phoning your mother and thanking her for the rebirth. Even if you don’t get along with your mother, she still gave you the opportunity to meet the Dharma and work on your issues. She deserves a hug from you or at least a prayer if she has passed on. The month will inspire as never before. Initially you don’t think anything special will happen this month but by mid-month all the rules of the game change. Be prepared to become the catalyst of change. Do it skillfully though. Radical change upsets people, so implement change with grace and poise.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month you are inspired in love and words. Write a poem, some prose or compose a dharma story. You are happy, witty and intelligent, so enjoy the stimulation while it lasts.
