GET TO KNOW BRIAN HILL – Humanistic Astrologer
ARIES (Mar. 21 – Apr. 20)
All systems go for the Ram this month. Like the space center having a perfect day for a blast off, you have a perfect month for your rocket to reach the outer regions of your universe. With four planetary energies in fire signs, there is a plethora of positive energy for a successful start of any project and an abundance of energy to take you right through to completion. There’s only one caveat. You must get in your rocket ship, buckle up and be willing to take it for a ride. Don’t be shy, don’t hesitate, get ready for take off.
TAURUS (Apr. 21 – May 21)
Astrologically speaking Taurus is involved in a Grand Trine this month. What’s a Grand Trine? Think of the ease of going down the five-story water slide at Adventure Island. All you have to do is put your little booty at the top edge of the slide, give a little push and gravity and the wet slide does the rest and you get to experience a safe and exhilarating ride. Pure and simple a Grand Trine is a celestial blessing. It is an energy field of grace, ease and elegance with the potential of blessed fulfillment. Your part is to give that little push and enjoy the ride.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
There once was a cartoon character, a super hero kind of a guy, named “Action Jackson.” He was a big strong dude, who in an instant was ready to engage whatever it was that got in the way of the happy ending. This month think of yourself as “Action Jackson” ready in an instant to engage in whatever your brilliant Gemini mind can conceive, realizing however there “ain’t no” opposition to your endeavor. What that means is that each and every ounce of action you perform will go to reaping the rewards of your action. This month is about doing not thinking. Ain’t that right AJ!
CANCER (June 22 – July 21)
It’s well known that the Crab is kind, compassionate and nurturing, with a strong sensitivity that can be called psychic. So this month’s assignment should you choose to accept it, and celestial counsel suggests you accept it, is to shower those around you with your previously mentioned qualities. Be pro-active in being kind. Use your compassion to heal the hurting. You certainly know how to do that. And finally, nurture your world with your powerful paternal emotions. By the end of the month you will see the positive difference you’ve made to many people, and most of all to yourself.
LEO (July 22 – Aug. 22)
Did you ever experience the reality that just before you’re leaving for vacation, the universe seems to propel in your direction an abundance of things that need your immediate attention? And, some how you manage to get them all completed. Well around the 21st, astrologically speaking you’re sort of going on vacation. From the start of the month there is plenty of powerful planetary energy to do whatever you choose. You’ll be running around like a squirrel gathering its nuts until the 21st. Then everything will slow down and you’ll be ready to take it easy and enjoy your vacation. Best to plan on it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Virgo is noted for its exceptional abilities for research and analysis. This month, celestial energies suggest you use abilities for your own personal benefit. The best use of the next weeks is for you to get to know yourself better, get in touch with your values and analyze what changes you’d like to make in yourself and in your life. Think of it as a retreat, much like a corporation goes on a planning session for the coming year. Metaphysically speaking, life is an inside out experience. Invest this time to get to know yourself better. The payoff will be significant.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 21)
A profound Zen saying advises, “What you are seeking is seeking you.” This is beneficial to know especially when you feel alone in pursuit of your dreams. Realize, your dreams seek their own expression through you. You seek the reality of your dreams and your dreams seek you for their reality. This month let that thought ride with you on your shoulder as you work. Take the opportunity to listen to your dream speaking to you, guiding you along the correct path. One caveat need apply. Be true to yourself, be authentic. Because, as another Zen saying postulates, “That which knows your face will find you.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 22 – Nov. 21)
Needless action, misdirected action serves no useful purpose.
Sometimes doing nothing is the most important and efficient thing you can do. Celestial speaking, doing nothing is a wise choice for Scorpio this month. However, there is productive path for you to walk during this time. It’s the most important path of imagination. Realize that everything we see was first done in the workshop of the imagination. First it’s done in the imagination, only then can it be done on the earth. Use this month to imagine your life as you want it to be. See it, feel it and breathe it in. Next month, do it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Sagittarius you are riding a big, beautiful powerful tiger this month, a tiger that’s amenable to your every desire. Feel it beneath you as you order it “to and fro.” It’s exciting, exhilarating and you decide what, when, where, why and how it moves. You’re in total control. Your tiger takes the planetary form of Mars, the planet of energy and action, combining with Saturn, the planet of crystallization and manifestation in the sign of Sagittarius. So put a saddle on that huge feline, go out into the month feeling confident that you are on the most capable jaws and claws of the jungle.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
A most beneficial way for the Goat to make use of this month is to get in touch with what’s of value to it. Suppose everything was taken away from you, what would be most dear to you? What would be your highest priorities to reclaim? This of course, includes people, place and things. This is a highly beneficial process for Capricorn and a most optimum time to do it. The Goat needs the metaphorical mountain to climb. But, it needs the right mountain. It’d a sad ending if the Goat sat upon the top of the wrong mountain, a very sad ending, indeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
You check your bank balance online thinking you know exactly what the balance should be. But amazingly see that number with an additional million dollars in your account. Upon going to the bank they assure you that the money is all yours and you can right checks on it. You’re confused and bewildered but cautiously you write a check for a small amount over your initial balance. When you find out it clears, you write another and it clears. Your confidence grows with each success. Metaphorically, your bank account is your level of ability this month. It’s your to use, at the level of your confidence.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
John’s passion is functional gardening, growing things to eat. His backyard is an Eden of exquisite organic vegetables, which he sells to local customers. One day a customer queried John on the secret to his successful garden. He simply said, “Nature has its way of growing. My job is to simply water it.” Pisces, you are indeed the gardener of your life. Whatever you give your attention to this month will grow as successful as John’s garden. Your attention is the water for your seeds of desire. Like John, you need to decide what to plant and water and then wait for nature to do its thing.
