ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Things are more lively for you. The Sun runs in opposition thus stimulating you to search for things to do. The effect can be distracting as it is an opposition aspect directly with Uranus. I would recommend slowing down and relaxing. This applies for the first week of October. After that things will calm down. This effect on you is not a question of stress rather you may be scattered in the activities you try to accomplish at this time.
Aries Buddhists are motivators. This month may appear busy so practice equanimity regarding the outcome of your actions. Use the Buddhist axiom, “To the best of our ability cause no harm, to the best of our ability to benefit.”
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
Your mind will focused and powerful in the first 2 weeks of the month. A positive attitude coupled with the conjunction of Mercury and Saturn opposite your Sun Sign will make you intellectually insightful. If you have a bad attitude it only promotes ego-centric activity that can express opinions aggressively. Essentially Mercury and Saturn will be opposite your Sun sign all the month. Therefore practice calm abiding and don’t let your mind be critical. Do contemplative meditations.
Taurus Buddhists can reflect on the above comment and do more contemplative meditations. Bodhisattva practitioners utilize their communication skills in daily activity when they have a stable altruistic attitude.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month is quiet for you for the first week. Venus will run opposite your Sun Sign after the 10th and that means desires and sensuality are strong. Problem is the opposition makes you chase desires. Therefore be mindful of what you desire and make them positive. HHDL says desire is not bad as long it seeks after positive beneficial things.
Gemini Buddhists are intelligent and inquisitive. This month don’t be too inquisitive. Mind your own business and keep your buttocks on the meditation mat.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Your Sun sign has Jupiter simulating you. This is wonderful if you have an altruistic attitude to benefit all. Jupiter adds enthusiasm and creativity to your activities. To this we add a good aspect with Mercury and Saturn at 120 degrees. Therefore it is a good month to do things and be friendly and warm toward others. Avoid getting moody if things don’t go your way. The saving grace is Jupiter is supportively positioned and that helps you be flexible when you meet an obstacle.
Cancer Buddhists can spend time each morning correcting their motivation. It is always good to check motivation. It plays an important role in the outcome of activities. Be mindful of your motive.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month has Mars running strongly in Leo for the first weeks. That planet and Leo get along well but be careful of being aggressive. This will apply more in the first two weeks of the month when Mars runs square Venus. You will be energetic but be careful of being demanding. Remember, astrology only influences you as much as you are not mindful of what you are doing moment to moment.
Leo Buddhists have been daydreaming for a few years with Neptune in opposition. That is now finished and so clear away the truly fantastic ideas and focus on the ones that have some merit. You have shifted from the wishing state of Bodhicitta to the engaged state now.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month is quiet for you. Neptune is opposite and so I recommend peaceful contemplative practices. The reason is your altruism and visions of a good world are stronger at this time. You have good aspects with Mercury and Saturn to assist in your contemplations of good will. Astrology does not always play a role in what transpires in our lives. What you have is a good set of aspects to increase insight and understanding. Utilize the time as it is impermanent.
Virgo Buddhists have great aspects to be helpful and insightful. Practice your Bodhicitta motivation. It is always right time to have Bodhicitta motivation.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Happy Birthday. You might consider giving your parents a present instead of expecting one from them. They gave you this body and deserve some complimentary gifts in thanks for the life you now live. It is your birthday month and you are prone to being slightly erratic and moody for the first week. The Sun is moving forward but opposite Uranus and square Pluto in that week. Once you get past the 10th of October things will calm down and be more predictable.
Libra Buddhists can be friendly and supportive. This is the external manifestation of their good internal intentions and meditations. Keep this in mind constantly and astrology will not be a problem for you.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Happy Birthday. You might consider giving your parents a present instead of expecting one from them. They gave you this body and deserve some complimentary gifts in thanks for the life you now live. It is your birthday month and Mercury and Saturn will run in your Sun sign all of the month. Therefore you are intelligent, thoughtful and confident all month. Remember, astrology only influences you as much as you are not mindful of what you are doing moment to moment. If you are mindful then astrology can be like having the wind in your sails, it helps you along on your journey to enlightenment.
Scorpio Buddhists have a good month to use enlightened compassion when being with others. What does enlightened compassion mean? It means one acts with wisdom and compassion when helping others. The assistance is proportionate to the needs of the person you help.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
This month is playful. You have Venus entering your sign in the 2nd week and it runs well aspected to Uranus. That means love, affections, pleasure has a nice twist of playfulness to it. Do something fun and share it with others. That is bodhisattvas do in attracting sentient beings to the path to enlightenment. One does not always have to focus on the suffering nature of samsara. Occasionally being playful is good too.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspirational most of the time. Considering this month I recommend doing things that you foresee have a positive outcome. Be dedicated to the activity and it will be successful.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Your Sun sign has Pluto simulating you and to this we add a strong aspect from Uranus at 90 degrees. Therefore it is a good month to not be too serious, just be friendly and warm toward others. Avoid getting moody if things don’t go your way. You are vulnerable to being grumpy if you don’t watch your attitude. The saving grace is Mars and Neptune are supportively positioned and that helps you be competent and insightful when you meet an obstacle.
Capricorn Buddhists might consider a study retreat this month. Personal study and a quiet livelihood are good choices. Don’t look for the perfect situation outside of yourself, just create that place within.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Your mind will focused and powerful all of the month. Be careful though as this is stimulated by a square of Mercury and Saturn. Therefore a positive attitude coupled with the square of Mercury and Saturn will make you intellectually insightful. If you have a bad attitude it only promotes ego-centric activity that can express opinions aggressively and be judgmental. Therefore practice calm abiding and don’t let your mind be critical. Do contemplative meditations
Aquarius Buddhists could consider taking Bodhicitta vows and after that thinking about engaged Buddhist activity. You are powerful intellectually, so use it skillfully.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Neptune stimulates your Sun sign to new levels of spiritual insight. This planet will be in Pisces for years to come. If life has been confusing it is because you are being too mundane in your perspective. Lift your vision beyond the immediate circumstances. Think of the greater significance of your life. What heritage are you going to leave for those around you? That is a question that requires a larger vision of life than just the focus on daily activities. Be idealistic, it helps Neptune influence you beneficially.
Pisces Buddhists need to be mindful of what they are doing. Think twice before you act with your speech or your body. Mindfulness is the key to all success and the elimination of all problems.
