Aries(March 21 to April 19)

This month, I will make space for all of my power. With the sun shining its light on all of my hidden ambitions, I will share my behind-the-scenes work with those that I trust. And while I will value their opinions, first and foremost I will stand up for my original vision.

Taurus(April 20 to May 20)

This month, I am going to take care of myself. What do I need to relax? What I do need to feel at home? What do I need to nourish my body? What is throwing off my balance? I will check in with needs. I will listen. And then I will treat myself accordingly.

Gemini(May 21 to June 20)

This month, I am ready to talk! I am ready to awe others with my wit. I am ready for the healthy intellectual debates that come with honest conversation. That's the fun of it! This month, I will use my social networking for mental stimulation.

Cancer(June 21 to July 22)


Wow, it's been a month! I have a few scrapes and bruises, but I somehow made it out of eclipse season alive. So this month, I'll spend time with the friends who get me out ofВ my head. The friendsВ who ignite the fun-loving child in me. This month will be less serious.В

Leo(July 23 to August 22)

This year, I think I'll throw myself the birthday party I've always wanted. Why wait for someone else to read my mind? This month, I'm going to celebrate all of the beautiful parts of me-and invite those I love to celebrate too. Happy birthday to me!

Virgo(August 23 to September 22)

This month, I'm going to clear out theВ emotional clutter that I have accumulated this year. I will use my greatest strengths to do this-I will purge, I will tidy, and I will polish. This month, I am going to create new space for positive people and energy to enter my life.

Libra(September 23 to October 22)

This month is all about romance. And it doesn't matter if it is with myself or with someone else. Either will satisfy me this August. I will go on thoughtful dates. I will write love letters. I will share my deepest desires. This month, I will remember how to fall in love.

Scorpio(October 23 to November 21)

Work, work, work, work, work. This month, I will devote myself and all my powerful energy toward my work. What have I been building? What does it mean for my future? What is my end goal? I know I am on the cusp of something huge. So I know I can't bow out now.

Sagittarius(November 22 to December 21)

This month, I will take action. It is time to start getting serious about those half-baked dreams of mine. Fully baked or raw, they are where all of my potential lies. They are where all of the magic happens. So since I'm always chasing something, I might as well chase my dreams.

Capricorn(December 22 to January 19)

This month, I will shed what isВ holding me back, what'sВ holding me down. I will know that it is okay to part ways with the people, places, and structures that are crushing me in their desire for control and power. This month, I will remember that I am the sole creator of my future.

Aquarius(January 20 to February 18)

Holy shit, when is eclipse season over? I think I've done quite enough life-altering self-reflection for the time being. But I guess I could start transforming those revelations into something beautiful. Beautiful to me and to others. This month, I will show the world how much I've grown.

Pisces(February 19 to March 20)

This month, I will get intimate with another. Both emotionally and physically. With someone current or someone new. I will explore my desires. I will activate my senses. I will show my whole self. This month, I will remember what it means to truly connect.
