ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month has things quieter for you. Jupiter and Uranus are well aspected and the Pluto square if finishing. Thus you may find things that bothered you in August are diminishing. The Jupiter Uranus aspect is good as it improves as the month progresses. So Jupiter (enthusiasm) and Uranus (spontaneity) benefit each other and you will be full of good energy as the fall season approaches.
Aries Buddhists love to be motivators. This month your enthusiasm will grow day by day as the month continues. Be mindful of a good attitude and where you place your attention. That guarantees a good month.
TAURUS (April 20 May 20)
This month starts slowly with Mars and Saturn separating in their opposition aspect to Taurus. That means a certain intensity you felt in August will diminish. Saturn will remain in opposition and so it is a good month to be more contemplative. Saturn benefits if we slow down and have a contemplative attitude. In the last ten days be careful of being fussy about how things are done. Jupiter will start to square Saturn in those days and can cause the above problem.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month do what is in front of you directly. It is a great time to do practical things that involve physical activity. Don’t fantasize as the dreams may upset your equilibrium.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
It is a good month to go slowly. The Neptune is square your sign and Mars will come opposite Gemini in the last weeks of September. This could cause you to feel agitated. The agitation will be a lack of focus in the things you are doing. This feeling will grow as the month continues so be mindful of your motivation. A good remedy to an agitated mind is breathing meditation.
Gemini Buddhists are quick on their intellectual feet. This month stop thinking about things and take one subject and meditate on it. Don’t jump around too much, be peacefully thoughtful.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
A great month to do simple things. The Sun is beneficially aspected from Virgo in the first weeks of September. Life is influenced by many factors and this particular month is beneficial for the expression of spiritual insights. The insights you gain in the first week may help you in the following weeks of the month. You are a feeling based sign and so slowing down and reflecting on your life would be good.
Cancer Buddhists normally work with feelings. This month be reflective and patient. Patience is a wonderful virtue. It increases all virtuous activity and stabilizes existing positive feelings.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
This month it is good to focus on your enthusiasm and where you wish to express all that good energy. Your mind and spirit are strong with Jupiter in Leo and a good aspect with Uranus. Saturn will come square to Jupiter in the last weeks of September and so slowing down in those weeks would be good. Saturn’s aspect is not bad but you have to be contemplative to receive its blessing of deeper insights.
Leo Buddhists like to be motivators. This month organize your motive in the first weeks and then manage your activities with mindfulness in the last weeks.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
This month is the birthday month. Send gifts to your parents, they deserve them. The ritual of birthdays is all backwards. Our existence is due to the support from our parents and all those before them. Without parents we don’t have a rebirth. So show your respect and appreciation. Even if your parents are not nice, they still can receive a thank you. Love and affection are your middle name this month. The Sun and Venus are stimulating you. It is your birthday month but that means you have to slow down enough to let it happen. For example, don’t miss appointments, it might be a surprise party for you. There is a tendency to rush right by something and miss a wonderful opportunity to have fun.
Virgo Buddhists do things in an orderly manner. This month slow down and don’t try to get everything done in the first week of fall. Let activities unfold as time and space avail themselves.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
This month is the birthday month. Send gifts to your parents, they deserve them. The ritual of birthdays is all backwards. Our existence is due to the support from our parents and all those before them. Without parents we don’t have a rebirth. So show your respect and appreciation. Even if your parents are not nice, they still can receive a thank you. This month you have Mercury blessing you the whole thirty days. Therefore read, study and share the dharma you understand and practice. It is a good intellectual month for you.
Libra Buddhists keep life in balance. Balance can mean beauty so therefore know the middle point between activity and non-activity. It is a very good month to share your positive ideas.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
This month you start with a good sense of power. Mars and Saturn are together in the first week and continue to bestow a positive constructive effect on you. This applied for most of August also. By midmonth this will diminish and you are left with just Saturn in Scorpio. Do more meditation in the last weeks of September. Saturn always benefits one who is contemplative.
Scorpio Buddhists are passionate. This month relax and let things take their own time to manifest. You have vision and enthusiasm but you may try to move too quickly. Slow down but keep the vision in place.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
It is a good month to go slowly. The Sun and Venus are square your sign and so you will most likely feel agitated. The agitation will have aspects of desire mixed with frustration. This feeling will grow as the month continues so be mindful of your motivation. A good remedy to an agitated mind is breathing meditation. Part of the problem in the later weeks of September is Mars in Sagittarius with a square to Neptune. If you lack mindfulness you could do some inappropriate things. Be mindful before you act.
Sagittarius Buddhists are inspired individuals. This month it is better to let your motivation be simple and uncomplicated. Slow down and relax. Suffering comes from expectations. The mind with few thoughts or expectations is often a mind with contentment, especially if you maintain a positive and peaceful attitude.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
It is good to slow down and be mindful moment by moment. Reason being Pluto is well aspected with the Sun but is squared by Uranus. If you have emotional issues then do lots of breathing mindfulness meditation. That is a good meditation in the first week of September. This helps broaden our mind and understand we are not the only one with issues and suffering. Sometimes we focus too much on ourselves and thus create more suffering than is necessary. Buddha called this the “Suffering of suffering”.
Capricorn Buddhists reflect and contemplate on decisions. A time of deep wisdom is here, so enter into this month by developing a thoughtful attitude. You can be an ocean of wisdom if you let the small boat of liberation sail smoothly across the ocean of samsara.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
The month is characterized by great enthusiasm and spontaneity. It is a good time to clarify your motivation so this enthusiasm goes in the right directions. Astrology influences are just that, an influence and stimulation. This month the stimulation is the energy to do things so the question is: “What do you wish to do that is beneficial and positive?
Aquarius Buddhists are sociable beings. This month your vision about life is excitement. Channel that energy in positive directions.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The month starts with vision as the Sun runs opposite Neptune in Pisces. Love and affection will be part of that in the first ten days of the month as Venus will also be opposite Neptune. Enjoy those days but be more mindful as the last weeks manifest. Reason is Mars will square Neptune and you could do inappropriate activities because of lacking mindfulness. Astrology is only an influence and our mindfulness and attitude about life are the filter of those influences.
Pisces Buddhists are sensitive and introspective. This month your vision is good at the start of the month. So meditate on love and compassion in the first weeks and then be mindful and contemplative in the last weeks.
