Summer 2016 – It’s on!

 

☽◯☾     All Signs   ☽◯☾

The days are nice and long and the thermostat hits the highest temperatures. It’s time to honour our connection with the land, rejoicing in the bounty, and celebrating with our family and friends. The Sun moves through the signs Cancer and Leo to Virgo during the high summer months. Our nurturing instincts are strong and inspiration abounds! This is a wonderful time for each of us to hone in on our unique creative ability and develop it. What are your passions? What gets you excited? It’s time to express ourselves and let our light shine through! Open up your heart and share your love — be amazed as others share their love with you. As the old saying goes “Smile and the world smiles with you.”

 

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)  

Your fiery nature will be drawn to the great outdoors or tasks that you can really throw yourself into, Aries. At the same time however you might be feeling reflective, wondering if your inner world is aligned with your outer world. Meditation and grounding exercises will serve you well as you consider where to put your precious energy. Matters to do with family –the family you came from and the family you’ve created — are important right now. Positive healing and transformational experiences can occur! Celebrations with extended family, and time spent with children are a delight. Late summer has some very inviting travel awaiting you! Be sure to get out and explore – be that a faraway journey, or checking out the treasures in your own backyard.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Relationships and communication styles are going to be a theme, Taurus. Cosmic energies are pushing you to grow your community ties and bonds with colleagues, neighbours, and friends now. Mars however, is dancing opposite your sun nature potentially stirring up conflicts
in relationships with others. This will be especially important in business deals and any joint plans you have with others. Keep in mind what your objective is in the objective of the other party. Employing some diplomacy skills will serve you well. A little bit of active listening never hurt either. A major endeavour, project, or the signing of legal agreements could be on the table mid-summer through fall. It’s imperative you have your I’s dotted on your T’s crossed!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Matters to do with your craft, your work and your money might be a little preoccupying, Gemini.  Give some thought to the resources you have in your life and how they serve you. For example do you own your house or does your house own you? Throughout the rest of 2016 and into 2017 you’re cutting away unnecessary material commitments in order to strengthen commitments (material and otherwise) that truly reflect your values. This might manifest as the buying and selling a home or even a change in your job and access to resources. On a lighter note get ready for a very social summer! You’re in a generous frame of mind and you want to be around happy people who share your outlook. Nice!

Happy birthday Cancer, it’s your time of year to shine! Be a little self-centered — in a good way — and think about what you need to grow as a person. Your confidence is high and you have more energy to go after what you want. Mars boosts the energy in your fifth house encouraging your creative expression. Artists of all kinds can really get in touch with their craft. Puttering in the garden or putting loving energy at home will be deeply rewarding. Time spent with children can inspire you. Creativity in your sexual expression is also on the menu! A hot date night with your sweetheart is in order. Flirtations and sexual attractions are very inviting now. Perhaps the only thing you have to watch out for is overindulgence!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a powerful time for you, Scorpio. If you’re the bossy type, you might come on a little strong right now. That said, it’s an excellent time to push forward in a cause you believe in.  You are determined to fight for your rights, your property, and your self-worth. The protector in you will also be strong. You might go the extra mile to help a friend or family member who has been downtrodden or wronged in some way. Physical outlets are a must now, Scorpio! Get on that bike, hike that mountain, swim your heart out, or hit the gym! Your sex drive is likely to be very high right now.  Temptation sex might also appeal. Don’t throw away a great relationship for a
momentary fling.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a pivotal time for you Sagittarius, actions that you take now will have lasting effects.  You may have felt stifled or uneasy in general. This can be outward manifestations of your dissatisfaction with the state of things. Similar to the pressure we feel in the air before it rains, you’re priming yourself to make significant life adjustments. You’re soon to be letting go of circumstances, places, and people that have been holding you back. Old angers, resentments, and any festering emotions are eager to be purged. (This is best done in a skillful manner.) Time spent with friends you trust, who support and encourage you is great! As the summer pushes forward you become more determined and forthright about the changes you want to instil. This fall and moving into 2017 are very important funds for your career!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be sure to take some time this summer for some strategic life planning, Capricorn. More than any other sign you like to have a roadmap with clear objectives and missions. Who better to make that map than yourself? Carve out some time to get reflective and formulate these goals and how you might pursue them. 2018 will and 2020 are pivotal years in your life path, Capricorn.  At the present, give some thought to the people on your team — both in your career and your home. How can you best strike a balance between your own self-interests and those of others? This is an excellent time to foster better relations with others, especially with mentors or possibly mentees. Time spent in groups are blessed. Your team spirit is growing!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your ambitions are aroused now Aquarius! The more you identify with cause or mission the harder you will work. It’s ideal if you can own a project or have your name or identity attached to it. You need authority right now and the right to exercise it. (What are you the captain of?) Independence from others and the ability to be your own boss will be appealing. (You rebel, you!) Be cautious of conflicts with authority figures such as bosses, parents, teachers, or community members. You might be so determined to get your way that you step on a toe or two. Well, if you want to make an omelette you do have to crack some eggs, right?
