ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
This month has a nice blessing from Saturn, Venus and Mercury. Uranus is in Aries for some years to come and right now is running well aspected to Saturn. That can make your meditations more profound as Saturn is a good influence for Buddhists. Place confidence in your positive beliefs and this aspect will help you. In the first ten days there may be an issue with aggression. Mars is conjunct Pluto and will be square Uranus. That tends to make you intense 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 and Mercury opposition Taurus but that aspect is benefited by a good aspect to Mars and Pluto. So although an opposition can make one feel stretched in many directions you will most likely handle it well. Pluto’s good aspect gives you faith. In the last ten days of November there will be a shift to love as Venus comes conjunct to Pluto. Basically go slowly and be thoughtful and all will be fine.
Taurus Buddhists love to be grounded and practical. This month start projects with a full sense of faith in your good intentions. As the month closes be warm and affectionate.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This month there is great confidence in love and communication skills. Saturn is opposite Gemini but well aspected to Jupiter, Venus and finally Mercury. That means you are joyfully loving and intelligent. There are no complications for the whole month for Gemini provided you are thoughtful about things. Therefore, use your mindfulness meditations to keep on track.
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 and Mars 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 Venus will conjunct Pluto and increase feelings of love and attachment. 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, Saturn, 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 Mercury 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 is not the sole creator of your situations but it is like having a sunny 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 Jupiter is in Libra and Saturn and Venus 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. You will start a Venus square and a Uranus opposition to Jupiter as the month ends and so expect some surprising emotional expressions to surface at that time!
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 Pluto all month, so be happy and do positive things. This will end for you in the last ten days of the month, so take advantage of the blessing while it is available. Meditations of Guru devotion are good to do at this time.
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 thoughtful with Saturn, Venus and Mercury transiting 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 good feelings as the Sun and Mercury are well aspected. The month will end with a strong sense of affection. Be careful of turning that into attachment. Love is an expression of good feelings, attachment is clinging to those feelings and is not beneficial. 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. Be humble. We are humble because we understand we are interdependent with those around us.
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. Mars will enter Aquarius in the last days of the month adding to your energy and ability to be a positive person. Enjoy the blessing while it is available.
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 the Sun and Mercury. 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, remember, all is impermanent.
