Invite Your Shadow to the Coming Out Party

astrol“No one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves,” Marianne Williamson once said. While Mercury is retrograde for most of this month, it is imperative that we open our ears to our inner voice, and listen deeply. Resist any temptation to articulate your insights in any official arena for now. Let your being work and rework the information channeling through your psyche until it lands solidly as your Truth. All feelings and repressed thoughts have been coming out through distorted behavior, and it is time to take responsibility for those power struggles you have been involved in. Peruse your family and relationship scrapbooks, and take an honest inventory of your defenses and reactions. You know you have found the buried treasure when you feel a healthy sense of humiliation, and you can see your own shadow mir­rored in “the other.” Revise, update, and renew your relationships from this place of wholeness..

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Your tribe is a possible source of emotional stress this month. You will navigate and clear old grievances that are blocking your true path. Take extra care to review, reconsider, and tenderize your delivery better.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Communicating the underbelly of your emotional being is rarely easy. This month you will be given ample opportunities to give voice to that soft spot of your deepest longings and biggest fears. Choose worthy witnesses!

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Although your thoughts are clear in your own head, you may be surprised and frustrated to find that others are not follow­ing your train of thought. Keep a sense of humor as you allow communication chaos and breakdown to have its way with you. Consider it a training in patience.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

You are the boss this month! You are in your element as the world around you struggles with the disorientation of chaotic communication. Although you are not immune to this, your first language is Feeling. Teach your clan the basics of your native tongue.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Journaling may be your best method for expressing yourself this month. Although without an audience applauding you, it may be difficult for you to see the value in this private world, but rest assured that the standing ovation is contingent upon the quality of this time spent behind the curtain.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Your obsessive thinking style is merely your way of attempting to master the physical Universe. This month you will experi­ence a payoff for all of those frustrating moments spent tear­ing out your hair. You will be given a V.I.P. priority pass in the social arena, and it is well deserved!.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Take inventory of your relationships this month. Reconsider who you feel elaborates your existence. You may find yourself letting go of those who do not mirror the home inside your own skin and bones. Remember to be gentle with those you release.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

You are in your element this month as the collective vibe is far less rational, and much more dreamy. This is a magically romantic month for you, so seize your fantasy lover and enjoy! There will be a time for the realities required for deepening later.
