2001 brings with it possibilities for intentional change, stronger
than any previous year experienced in your life. This began with
an eclipse, coinciding with the winter solstice, and visible in
the United States. Ancient civilizations in the northern hemisphere
celebrated winter solstice as the festival of light, the beginning
of longer days with hope for the future. The special celestial energy
of this year describes a gift of energy
for transformation and magic. You will have assistance to let go
of old negative beliefs and begin co-creating the life desired in
our hearts. The next two weeks are important to connect your mind
and heart to be able to identify your long-term goals and specific
For individual signs:
(See the birth date period for each sun sign in parenthesis)
The following information applies in general for each sun sign.
The ascendant sign, if known, would give additional specific information.
(March 21 - April 20) You can combine adventure and responsibility.
You tend to spend time focusing on climbing the mountain then looking
for the next one to climb. Take the time now to imagine the view
from the top to find your long-term sense of purpose.
(April 21 - May 20) Your political, educational, and philosophical
values need review. If you desire to travel or create something
to sell, become aware of a long term, deeper purpose. That knowledge
is your magic for manifestation.
(May 21 - June 21) Gemini can easily get overwhelmed with ideas.
You need to move beyond your mind and look deep into your heart
to find your true direction for focus. Your gift now is the ability
to find your most important desire and then organize your thoughts
(June 22 - July 22) You will find your strength in the deep tap
root of your soul, not in other people. In setting your goals, balance
your emotions by writing, "I desire...." Avoid feeling
you "need." Know your soul desires to nourish you. It
is OK to set a goal for something you enjoy, rather than a "should".
23 - August 22) In making choices and setting your goals, know that
it is important for Leo, to be recognized for your creativity. You
have many abilities, but know that even you cannot be all things
to all people. You must make the choice in your heart. Constant
adjustments of your dreams for others can lead to poor health. Being
true to yourself up front prevents future disappointments for both
you and the others you were trying to impress.
(August 23 - September 22) This year will provide an opportunity
for you to develop greater self esteem and appreciation of your
own talents. Your ability to see details that other may miss allows
you to help others to find the missing pieces needed for healing
or fixing any situation. This year is a time for you to do that
for yourself first.
(September 23 - October 23) The Libra search for peace and harmony
is usually played out by in the mind to the expense of the emotions.
The denial is like stretching a rubber band until it snaps causing
others to see you as two different people. Your goal for this year
should be to become a partner with your own shadow. When you can
love all parts of yourself and others - from your heart - then you
will be able to find a relationship with roots in your soul.
(October 24 - November 22) Positive Scorpio energy is all about
magic and healing. It is the natural sign of the entrepreneur and
the shaman. Your goal for the year should be to go within and find
which path reclaims the lost parts of your soul. How can you achieve
a feeling of wisdom and power?
(November 23 - December 21) The new year energy gives you the opportunity
to create a whole new personality to play, if you choose; your soul
playing a character in a play while learning from the experience.
What is it you most want to learn at this time, and how can you
best achieve that goal?
(December 22 - January 20) Each year at this time you go through
a re-birthing process, but this year will be dramatic. It can be
magical or difficult - your choice. Transformation will be required,
as in the story of "Scrooge." In setting your goals, releasing
fear of failure and success will need to be #1.
(January 21 - February 18) In setting your goals, include a request
for the ability to know your own personal mind and desires. In your
quest to serve causes and the greater picture you have a danger
of living life outside of yourself and in your head. Passion and
intellect become the outer face. Allow time to celebrate your secret
inner beauty and gentleness. Your magic for creation will come from
(February 19 - March 20) The energy of this new year demands you
come out of your inner spiritual cave and share your wisdom and
intuitive, artistic talents with others. Friends, groups, community
provide the left brain intellectual balance to assist you to manifest
