For all signs: Join us on a magical journey.  This column shares with you the progression of planetary energy for your personal transformation. January began a process of breaking old fear-based patterns and moving toward the life you want to create. Continue to stay focused on your vision while you make very tangible small steps to accomplish your long-term goal. Success is a process, not an end result.

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) To achieve a change you must put on the mask of what you want to be and pretend.  It might feel strange at first, but slowly thinking of yourself in the new image will become natural. 

_Taurus (April 21 - May 20) You will still be working on eliminating some self-sabotage patterns.  Do spring-cleaning, clear the junk in your physical environment while you clean up your act.  You are far more valuable to this world than you give yourself credit for.

`Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Review and write the goals you have set for the year and your new life.  Now look at how your friends and any groups you are in may assist.  Time to talk about and share what you are trying to achieve with these friends.

aCancer (June 22 - July 22) Setting goals does not mean that you have to accomplish in one large wave.  Remember you are like the ocean and can best accomplish tasks in ebb and flow.  When you get emotionally upset you can be very destructive to yourself and others.  Breathe deep and stay calm.

bLeo (July 23 - August 22) Time to gather more information that will help you learn the legal and advanced knowledge needed for what you want to accomplish.  You will find the information coming to you from many resources, just pay attention.

cVirgo (August 23 - September 22) The financial means to accomplish some steps to your goal could be easily available during this period - but the source and means may not be what you expect.  Be willing to listen and discuss with a win-win solution in mind.

dLibra (September 23 - October 23) You love to play, but will have to put your nose to the grindstone a bit the next few weeks.  Co-workers can be a bit annoying, testing even your ability for diplomacy.  Good communication will be crucial.  Write yourself and others notes to be sure you remember all that needs to be accomplished. 

eScorpio (October 24 - November 22) Stay focused on your goals for change.  Some people or practical considerations may require an adjustment to your plans.  Don't become annoyed by minor details or criticism, just look for your own self-sabotaging patterns. Be willing to take some advice and make needed adjustments. 

fSagittarius (November 23 - December 21) Your creative urges are abundant at this time. Use the energy to get a clear picture of where you really want to go and why.  Your visions tend to get too broad and complicated, so narrow your focus and write out some simple specific steps.

gCapricorn (December 22 - January 20) Outside responsibilities may be affecting your ability to make and keep your goals for personal change. You may be trying to prove something to others, but not giving yourself joy.  Stop and begin your new path by giving yourself something you wanted as a child.

hAquarius (January 21 - February 18) It is essential for Aquarius types to now have fixed in your mind a plan of action for the year and the rest of your life.  You have more ability to create with thought than others. Your energy can be magnetic and your thoughts attract your realities - whether you are consciously aware of them or not. Watch your vocabulary and consciously think, speak, dress and act the image associated with the goals you want to create.

iPisces (February 19 - March 20) "Earth to Pisces."  You are being called now to take your imagined self and step onto the stage of reality. Keep the dream and make it a tangible vision to model your life.  Do some small thing each day to reinforce that you deserve your desire for change; you have a right to be joyful.
