ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month has an interesting mix of passion and confusion. Uranus is in Aries for some years to come and right now is running opposite Venus and square Pluto. That can mean rash emotional or sexual expression. Be careful of exaggerating your sexual feelings into something that is inappropriate. In the last ten days the issue is more about aggression. Mars will conjunct Pluto and be square Uranus. That tends to make you intense and aggressive if things don’t go according to your expectations. Slow down, think about what you wish to do and make sure it causes no harm to others.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month just slow down and don’t motivate externally. If you have a motivation, make it to be more mindful and peaceful. Your awareness and wisdom can protect you from many errors.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20) This month starts with the Sun opposition Taurus but that aspect is benefited by a relation to Saturn. So although an opposition can make one feel stretched in many directions you will most likely handle it well. Saturn’s good aspect gives you confidence. In the last ten days of November be a little careful of superstition. In Tibetan the word superstition is exaggerating something with a negative perception. So be mindful of projecting an illusion on a good situation.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month start projects with a full sense of confidence. As the month closes be pragmatic and don’t exaggerate things.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) This month there is great enthusiasm and affection. Jupiter in Gemini is well aspected to Venus for the first weeks of November. That means you are joyfully loving. There are no complications for the whole month for Gemini and Jupiter so enjoy the affection and share it.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month think about how you are interdependent with all around you and fill that space with affection and love.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) This month your deep feelings are playing a role in whatever you wish to do. The month starts with a bit of agitation with Pluto opposite Cancer and being squared by Uranus. So start the month with mindfulness of your deeper feelings about things. By being mindful you release the pressure and don’t suffer negative feelings. This is important because in the last ten days of November Mars will conjunct Pluto and increase all your deep feelings. So if you have not been mindful you could get quite intense at the end of the month. Now in what area will you be intense? That depends on where you are placing emphasis. Astrology is only an influence, you are the outlet of that influence.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month be reflective and patient. Patience is a wonderful virtue. It comes from understanding that aggression is not the best way to resolve issues. Go slowly and your goals will be attained.
LEO (July 23 – August 22) This month is basically quite good. Venus, Jupiter, Uranus and finally Mercury all sit well positioned to your Sun sign. There are no direct planets in Leo so these good aspects outweigh the minor unsettling aspects of other planets at difficult angles to Leo. Be happy and do as you please.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month move gracefully through life. Focus on your positive feelings and let them spread to others around you.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month the Sun and Saturn are harmonizing with your earth sign from Scorpio. This is also complimented by Neptune and Pluto. Therefore be positive and know that astrological influences are in your favor. It does not mean a lot but it is like having a reasonable weather for an activity. The influence is supportive.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month just be quiet and peaceful. Do things that positively motive you and pass on the blessings of good feelings.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) This month Venus is in Libra and Jupiter is well aspected to your sign. That means energy and affection inspire you. Share the good feelings and use the energy in positive activities. It is similar to having sunny weather when you schedule a picnic. It helps make the day a success. You just finished a Uranus opposition to Venus and so October may have ended with some surprising emotional expressions!
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. Balance this month is around how much energy you put into actions and how much you are careful for being too active. Balance the enthusiasm with common sense.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) This month is birthday month. Send a present to your parents or send good wishes to their current rebirth state. They are the source of this rebirth and deserve recognition. There are basically good aspects to the Sun and Saturn all month, so be happy and do positive things. Just be a little careful in the last weeks as Mercury is running retrograde into Scorpio. That is not a big problem though as Saturn and Venus are together giving you a nice contemplative love.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month you are the center of attention, so make positive motivations and let the world unfold as it may.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) This month is birthday month. Send a present to your parents or send good wishes to their current rebirth state. They are the source of this rebirth and deserve recognition. This month you are busy with Mars finishing its transit through Sagittarius. In the last ten days the Sun will enter your sign and again you have lots of energy. Be a little careful of projecting an illusion or expectation on others at that time. Neptune runs square the Sun and you might confuse things in an illusory manner.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month go with your heartfelt feelings. Motivate positively and wish to be of supreme benefit to others. What more could we ask of a Sagittarian?
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
The month starts with passion as your feelings are sensual and erratic. The passion is Venus square Pluto and the erratic nature is Uranus square Pluto. As our mindful awareness is our protection for all situations I recommend you slow down, don’t chase fantasies and invoke peace when agitation arises. It is a good month to be mindful we are interdependent beings and be humble. We are humble because we understand we are not totally in control of ourselves. Arrogance feels superior to all and is not in harmony with the true nature of reality.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. Carry on with your meditations. Go slowly and be thoughtful.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) This month Venus, Jupiter and Uranus are well aspected to your sign. That means energy and affection inspire you. Share the good feelings and use the energy in positive activities. It is similar to having sunny weather when you schedule a picnic. It helps make the day a success. There are actually no planets in Aquarius but these three give good support to you from a distance.
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month meditate on Bodhicitta or Metta. The month is useful as you have an expanded sense of love and spirituality.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20) The month is full of spirituality and contemplation. Neptune is in Pisces and well aspected by Saturn. That will keep you level headed all month. In the last ten days though the Sun will run square to Neptune and you could exaggerate things a little. So keep your nose to the grindstone of mindful contemplations and you will be fine. You may have some interesting dreams in those last ten days. Enjoy them but don’t take them seriously.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month you have a great opportunity to meditate with confidence and insight. Enjoy the time as it will pass. All is impermanent.
