    Speaking to Your Soul 3.9.23

    By Elisa Quinzi–

    Every one of us has a tendency to fall back on our emotional autopilot setting, which is to say, to think, feel, and act from our unconscious childhood fears. Some version of not feeling good enough plays out in every corner of our lives. If we are reading this astrology column, we are open enough to the possibility of a higher intelligent order, or force, in the universe. The intersection of our fears, and this higher force, is where our attention is needed. The planets indicate that we need to mature spiritually. Individually, and as a collective, the only way to truly face our fears and overcome challenges is with a real trust in the intelligent force that runs the cosmos.

    ARIES (March 21–April 19)

    There couldn’t be a better time to start, or up-level, your meditation practice. Set your alarm, and create a discipline around communing with the power that makes the earth turn and your heart beat. This is the start of a brand-new cycle! The slate is clean.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20)

    Step 1) Allow yourself to dream again. Step 2) Remember that all of the power of the universe is pressing to come through you. Step 3). Put your dreams into physical form by making a vision board. Your practical nature can find that your feet and heart have grown heavy, so the act of seeing your vision in pictures every day can activate the magic of life that you may have lost touch with.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20)

    You have a reputation of being interesting to talk with, fun to have at a party, and often having your senses plugged into the buzz of culture. The truth is you’re more than all that, but even you are guilty of neglecting your deeper waters. Higher forces now bring you opportunities to develop your compassion and to recognize your unity with all beings. Keep your heart open and honor any shifts in direction your life may want to take.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22)

    Your sensitive nature makes you particularly vulnerable to the frequencies of the world around you. What you place faith in can make or break you. If you find yourself despairing, and disillusioned, it’s likely you’ve cut yourself off from the superpower that is your intuition. Plug back in to it and trust it to lead you to a direct experience of the magic and mystery of life.

    LEO (July 23–August 22)

    The planets prompt you to take a deep dive within. Signs are pointing toward the need for you to take radical responsibility for your feelings. In myth, this is when you slay some dragons. Face your underlying fears, and surrender to a larger force that you are right now suspended in. The point is the development of reliance on this force rather than on any one person. Doing so will allow you to be more vulnerable with the people who trigger you.

    VIRGO (August 23–September 22)

    This coming period will emphasize and encourage you to cultivate greater compassion for your fellows. Before retorting that you’re already plenty compassionate (which you are), consider the ways your inner-critic has its way with you, and the way that comes out as judgment toward the people you love. Your soul is ready for an advanced heart-opening class, and it starts now.

    LIBRA (September 23–October 22)

    Do not confuse politeness with humility. Librans are famous for their social graces, but it’s important to get real about the ways you can improve yourself. Not only will you be better able to be of service to the people in your life, but you’ll also feel happier making disciplined effort toward personal growth.

    SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)

    It’s time to get serious about your creativity. Take that half-written script off the shelf, blow the dust off, and make the artist in you show up for the work. Something in you will feel good when it’s expressed, and it won’t fully come out until you show up to give it a chance to move through you.

    SAGITTARIUS (November 22–December 21)

    Your ideas about belonging and security have a chance to deepen and mature. Commit time and effort to some self-exploration. Root out the parts of your family myth that don’t serve you, and strengthen and develop a feeling of security that is personal to you and to who you’ve become.

    CAPRICORN (December 22–January 19)

    Most Capricorns value security above all else, and as such are naturally wired to acquire it, particularly materially. And so, when physical assets appear to be lacking, Capricorn’s fears can overwhelm. The antidote to this fear of material loss is awareness of the greater permanence of the spiritual realms. It’s this awareness that you are to lean into now. There is great wisdom in you, and more than any financial legacy, it is your wisdom that your loved ones need to inherit from you most.

    AQUARIUS (January 20–February 18)

    You have access to universal truths that can unite humanity. You also have an underlying vulnerability to withdraw from society and live off the grid, away from the masses. Living in isolation won’t satisfy your soul, as one of your fundamental needs is to share your ideas with a group. Make room for the mystical, as it will sustain you in your work with others.

    PISCES (February 19–March 20)

    Pisces are the mystics and the shamans of the zodiac. You see past the veil into other dimensions that are as valid as this physical one we inhabit. Some would say more valid. But often Pisces hangs back in a womb-like existence, waiting for the next life, depriving the world of your much-needed gifts. The time has come to share with the world what you see and sense, and bring your wisdom and experience into form. Face your fears of unworthiness and make an all-out effort to start living your full potential as you intended before you came here.
