For all signs: Join us on a magical journey. Each issue this column will share with you the progression of planetary energy for your personal transformation. The energy of January helped to identify what you really want to create on a deeper level. In February there is opportunity for breaking old patterns that were based on fear. As we move into March the inner healing process must continue in preparation for the new physical cycle beginning in April. It is a gestation period, bathe yourself in spiritual nourishment in preparation for your rebirth. What you believe at this time will manifest later this year, so eliminate the negativity and trust yourself to "dream the impossible."

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.

^ Aries (March 21 - April 20) You can eliminate fears and get new insights at this time into achieving satisfaction from your life. You tend to want to be a loner or leader, following your own path. You now need to look at your role as part of a community. Cooperation with friends and organizations will help you to achieve more than you can alone.

_ Taurus (April 21 - May 20) Taureans must overcome their tendency to see themselves as reacting to life and learn to accept responsibility for creating and planning. What you would really enjoy may seem unclear at this time. Focus on the identification of the specific things in your life that bring joy and what you (not others) can do to manifest them for yourself.

` Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Gemini has been feeling overwhelmed and questioning their own wisdom recently. That is because you have gathered more intentions than you can possibly accomplish. Time to slow down a bit, focus on deciding what is most important, and develop step-by-step time lines to be able to see your progress.

a Cancer (June 22 - July 22) You are being challenged to look at the deeper issues underlying your emotional and security needs. Disruptive situations and fears may come up in sharing relationships. The lessons is leaning to trust and depend on your own intuition, learn to nurture and protect yourself.

b Leo (July 23 - August 22) You may feel in a tug of war trying to balance your own needs. Schedule time to be alone regardless of the demands from others. It is especially important for you to go within, bathe yourself in spiritual nourishment, and come forth with the courage to stand up for what you want.

c Virgo (August 23 - September 22) Your fears for your physical health and focus on small details are creating the problems, not the solutions. Relationships with others and with your own spirit are suffering. What you think (fear) and especially what you say are creating your reality. Visualize the perfection in the whole picture.

d Libra (September 23 - October 23) Relationships will continue to be an issue for a decade, breaking up old patterns and overcoming fears. What you are saying and visualizing now will affect what you will create for the next 20 year cycle. Focus on the ideal outcome, not the obstacles and old beliefs. Giving power to the negativity will just perpetuate its existence. Fill your environment with beauty and positive symbols of what you want to create

e Scorpio (October 24 - November 22) You are very affected now by your roots, your issues with your original family and current home situation. The challenges are meant to help you develop inner power and belief in yourself. But you must be able to learn to let go of fixed ideas of how things should be for yourself and others. Be open to new ideas, your life can be changed by reading, traveling, TV, etc. The answer to your dilemma is something that has not existed in your previous information bank.

f Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21) Like Gemini you may be feeling overwhelmed with too many goals, too much information. You will find your focus though through a sifting process with your significant other. Time to sit down together and eliminate or postpone all that is not shared or valuable for creating a harmonious relationship and shared environment.

g Capricorn (December 22 - January 20) Values, including how you value yourself, should be your major concern during this gestation period. To go forward with your goals in April you must believe in yourself and that you deserve what you desire. Partnerships should be based on shared values. Pick the one that will assist, not distract you from your own.

h Aquarius (January 21 - February 18) This is an important time for Aquarians and for the promotion of world community. Honoring the beauty of our differences as part of the tapestry of the whole is being programed into our consciousness. Aquarius will play a leadership role in this process, not only for yourself but for the world. As you go through your rebirthing process, imagine yourself and your life as you would want for your grandchildren.

i Pisces (February 19 - March 20) The energy now can help you change the way you see yourself and what you are projecting to others. Your sensitivity can help you to create beauty in the world or lead you to retreat in fear. Trusting in a higher power and listening to that inner encouragement can become your strength. Live your life as if it is what you want and it will become that.
