This interpretation can be read for both your sun sign and your rising sign.
Personal goals remain elusive as the stress of the entire year has and will continue to test the resolve of the individual. The positive and negative sides of humanity have been made quite clear within others and within ourselves. It is important for each sign to shift into its highest abilities to raise the consciousness of the world. The world slowly begins to move into a more humane and global awareness, starting this December 2020.
March 22 - April 21 and Aries Rising
Aries is a “full steam ahead” energy. Once Aries people see a goal or cause, they move in a straight line towards it. Now, with Mars entering your sign, you will feel emboldened to take over, lead or move quickly into action. Some Arians will seek out exciting or even dangerous situations as they enjoy competition with others or even with themselves. But the real battle, is the challenge to direct or channel all this drive into positive activities that help to serve humanity. Your temper will be on the rise frequently as world conditions continue to affect your personal life. It is the perfect opportunity to learn to think about consequences before any reaction. Check in with your higher self before every decision or event. August and December are positive for popularity and leadership, but not for arguments. The end of September, through mid-October, shows conflict with authority figures. Mid-December brings the promise of many changes and positive situations for you - especially employment.
April 22 - May 21 and Taurus Rising
Taurus people are very capable of bringing about “order out of disorder”. They have done well with the changing world and also benefitted from some of the new conditions. They are steady, but slow in making decisions. Their path towards goals is a bit winding, as they study all possibilities of action before taking it. But over the next six months, some plans that have worked for you before, will begin to break down. Other plans will still offer stability and opportunities. This new trend signals fewer positive energies to reach your goals, especially in December/January. Care must be taken to adjust to more limited or stricter options for a while. Fortunately, Uranus, the planet of change has entered your sign and will help you to see good and innovated choices. The past comes forward now as teachers, friends and young people become a greater part of your current life. July highlights communications and spiritual experiences. August can be stressful for family. Try not to make decisions in October and November. Neptune is favourable to Taurus now and brings inner peace and happiness. Use music as an invitation to these higher vibrations.
May 22 - June 21 and Gemini Rising
Your lively personality always has “two or three goals in mind” at the same time. Your zigzag path to achieving anything is full of interruptions and changes of heart. The Gemini curiosity and desire for knowledge can lead you anywhere. Yet your brightness and ability to handle many things at a time is in demand. At present, you may feel fenced in and bored which can affect your mental/emotional health. However, Mars in Aries, over the next six months, will bring opportunities for more action with groups. Some rebuilding of your own hopes as well as meeting the immediate needs of others is in the picture. A new friend emerges. Changes in procedures or rules have occurred; that annoys you and the uncertainty of work and finances still weighs you down a bit. But your ability to act quickly on opportunities still remains. Mid-December begins a very positive trend for you as the world takes steps to renew itself. Innovation, technology and communication, all your forte, become the focus. Listen to your own inner voice and not to others. Go deeper within.
June 22 - July 21 and Cancer Rising
Cancer, your “concern for others” is usually a part of your goal. Your path to personal achievement is broad and unconcerned with a timeline. Direct issues are difficult for you to address. Over the next six months, changes in associations, friends and organizations may benefit you, but legal partnerships and career opportunities seem illusive and stressful. Authority figures are bossy and controlling. Try to see what the facts are and not what you would like them to be. It might be easier for you to move out of the way of others and seek you own inner light just now. The negative ways of the world are obvious this year; but the higher levels of the sacred path are open to you as, Neptune energies favour Cancerians. Mid-July birthdays will see many changes around them and difficult decisions may have to be made. Seek the advice of professionals, and not loved ones, at that time. Avoid making agreements in personal relationships, as you may change your mind.
July 22 - August 21 and Leo Rising
Leos usually have, “a great deal of self-confidence” and move quickly to their goals; often taking friends along with them. However, some are in such a hurry for success that they do not always see the details needed to sustain that goal. The next six months will help you move forward in some areas of your life. But the issues of the past six months can still be a problem. Moving in the direction of spirituality, education, and a deeper understanding that the world is one, now calls to you to follow. Also, some areas of travel, where permitted, are positive. All legal advice, some government services and helping in-laws, are also positive. Career paths for yourself and partners will be stressful. Health, health services and conditions at work will also be challenging. You are moving into a trend where you will find that it is best to focus on your inward journey as much as possible. Make your altar and your heart beautiful now, as you welcome this special opportunity.
August 22 - September 21 and Virgo Rising
Virgos are “known for their ability to see details” and to gather information before making decisions. However, if things take too long, they lose patience and move to another project - or two. The last six months of 2020 have benefited some Virgos; especially in the areas of children, family, local projects and communications. This will continue through the next six months. The planet Mars has now entered the area of your finances, and so, care in handling money is necessary. Some improvements are there, but also problems that require you to spend more, are equally there. Another major planet has entered your quadrant of spirituality, education and travel of the mind. It suggests that new and technical devices will aid you in your search for better health as well as spiritual understanding and truth. Information and classes on line can certainly help your decision making. Yet success in these two important areas of your life, health and spirituality, must be practiced by your entire being and not just understood by your analytical mind.
September 22 - October 21 and Libra Rising
“Bringing peace, and fairness to the world around them”, is always connected to Libran goals. But they require just the right atmosphere to move towards them. Right now, your own environment may be filled with opposing opinions on how best to deal with issues. In some cases, it may be wise to step away and let others argue without you. Family, partners and housing issues seem unstable at this time, but mid-December brings change. Many challenging situations subside at that time and better opportunities begin to emerge around you. Before December, life as you would like it, evades you. Try not to get too involved with situations and decisions now. Help where you can, but develop no attachments, as these situations are temporary. For those Librans connected with government and the law, the next six months can be frustrating. For creative Librans, your talents can help restore balance and spirituality for others as well as for yourself. Stay in your highest level of awareness, as much as possible.
October 22 - November 21 and Scorpio Rising
“The energy of Scorpio is intense and determined”; even though their pace in life may seem uneven and changeable. Their goals and desires are always on their minds. When success eludes a Scorpio, they change their tactics or move to a different path, but with the same goal in mind. The last six months, have not supported all of your goals. Yet the current energies, past and present have been positive in the areas of education, communication, siblings and neighbourhood activities. But peace of mind and body have almost been out of reach for you as many people, even relatives, seek your aid, disturbing your balance. The next six months require you to pay attention to caring for yourself as health concerns could become more difficult. Your warrior side wants to take control of certain situations to fix them' but this is not yet possible. You must forge a pathway between what is needed and what you can reasonably do. Rely on your spiritual energies as they are deeply involved in your well-being as well as that of loved ones.
November 22 - December 21 and Sagittarius Rising
During the last six months, “you have been focusing on finances and security”. With your life ruler, Jupiter, currently in Capricorn, you may have been more dependable and organized than usual. But financial stability is not strong in the stars at present. Your love of freedom may have been curtailed due to world changes. However, December brings you opportunities for advancement and adventure. The next six months will promote your creativity and positive health, as well as provide opportunities for working with young people. Some Sagittarians will pursue marriage prospects, while others will get involved with young people and their activities. Sagittarians are usually not goal oriented and certainly not in any hurry to achieve them. They tend to depend on luck and opportunity. However, this is one of the signs of wisdom in the zodiac. It gives an innate desire to understand the world and its creator, often leading to higher thought and awareness.
December 22 - January 21 and Capricorn Rising
Organiser of the Zodiac, “you set your goals with practical and well thought out steps”. When life gets in the way of them, you deal with the current issues, but then go right back to your plan to succeed. You seldom deviate. Over the next six months, your focus will move a bit more to family, housing and meeting emergencies with a cool mind. You can improve situations, but probably not solve them completely. Let this be enough. Many personal preferences will have to be set aside. However, someone you meet during the course of your duties, could become a part of your life at a later time. Finances may improve here and there at just the right times. Strong energies from your spiritual endeavours take on an almost physical presence. You may sense that divinity is working side by side with you. Remember to take care of your own health also responding to the needs of others. Mid-August, October and December are the most stressful times for Capricorns.
January 22 - February 21 and Aquarius Rising
“Your sign represents the beginning of the new energy” that is trying to make itself known, even through the disturbances around the globe. The old ways and systems will eventually give way to the new. One Humanity, One World, will be its mantra.
The Aquarian age as well as the Aquarian individual loves liberty, free thought, innovative science and technology. They are refined, intelligent and philosophical and considered the sign of brotherhood. This energy will begin to take hold in mid-December and continue for several years. Right now, Aquarius, Mars brings positive opportunities to all areas of communication, technology local travel and community. Still the pressures of the past and old ways of doing things continue to bother you. Family members may not agree with any new plans that you have. Be patient, what you want will come about soon enough. Try to be a little closer to those that love you as they need your re-assurance. Let wisdom work through you.
February 22 - March 21 and Pisces Rising
“Most Pisceans find it hard to set solid goals and stick to them”. There is so much about the world that is interesting to them and it pulls them away from practical plans to explore. Pisces is an energy that often lives in the moment rather than extended time periods. Neptune, currently in your own birth sign, continues to bring creative and spiritual energies to you, but does not add to your analytical abilities. It is now partnered by Jupiter to bring you psychic and spiritual dreams, visions and higher wisdom experiences. Take advantage of these current opportunities now through October when the energies are strongest. The next six months see you making changes in your life that are beneficial. However, December brings a more cautious tone and asks you to take more time in all considerations. Finances can be positive with dedication and routine on our part. Try to put money aside as the world will begin to change around you starting in December.return to news
