Pisces, February 19-March 19, adapting and learning feeling (soul)
Although you are a child of expansive Jupiter and otherworldly Neptune, Mercury retrogrades can affect your relationships in a serious way. It is as if for three weeks you and your significant others speak different languages. Until August 8, you must reorganize your work space. Sure, you can by removing excess clutter. But yours is a soulful water sign. Physically straightening up your desk is a symptom of what's wrong. You must go on a quirky vision quest. Find your original inspiration, not only for work but also for why you serve others the way you do. If you are expecting a rescue, it's not gonna happen. These next 20 days (and each day has its own anxiety and drama potential), you must save yourself. Speak your language of what you can realistically and logically deliver. Cease trying to explain yourself to folks who probably will never like (or, more importantly, not believe) you in the first place. Go back and read Cancer's message. Apply 70 percent of it to you.
Leo, July 23-August 22, concentrating spirit, aka individuality (fire)
Within 30 days of your birthday, you retreat into your mind and spirit to reflect upon your last year and life (depending on your age and depth). Suffice it to say, we all do this before our next year of aging shows up. This is one of the reasons for a birthday party. Setting the record and the goals straight, which is moving forward. This New Moon has all the makings of increasing your self-determination. I said self-determination, not a mulelike stubbornness to show us who's the boss or defending personal citadels that have no true meaning. No faux outrage, please! Imagine that your life resembles the Palestinians; you want others to recognize you as an independent state, but done peacefully and culturally. (UNESCO, the United Nation Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization, determined that the Church of the Nativity where Christians believe Jesus was born has been determined as an endangered World Heritage site. It's on the West Bank. This act can be considered a recognition of Palestinian culture and their right to statehood?) A Cancer New Moon accentuates our clannish natures, but it can also demonstrate the larger human family connection. As the sign that follows Cancer, you teach them and us to fight battles that mean something to your ethnicity, while acknowledging that others have the same claim to their origins. Some of the best peace within relationships comes from the most intense anger. A lukewarm smile beats out a scowl, personally speaking.
Sagittarius, November 22-December 21, adapting and learning spirit, aka individuality (fire)
Read Leo's message first. Yes, I realize that I often ask you to read another sign's message before your own. You are an intuitive, synthesizing, energetic fire sign. This means that your enthusiasms sometimes have no limits. By getting different viewpoints before you fully form your own (i.e., your personal message), you have more to broadcast to the rest of us. At this moving from the personal dimension of Cancer (Leo begins on Sunday, July 22, @ 6.01a CDT) to the interpersonal dimension of Leo, you can act as an ambassador to inspire us to think beyond our own personal sandbox. You can remind us of what's truly important in the big picture, a lofty big picture. Picture yourself as a finalist in the Miss Universe contest, and your questions are about the difference between Japanese Internment Camps of the 1940s and reparations for former descendants of American slaves? Or should there be a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine? Should marriage equality and immigration be determined by the federal government or by state rights? Your attractiveness emanates when you ponder the larger issues facing our time. We need your willingness to put your foot in your mouth. It is better to keep the conversation going through goading and directness than to avoid confrontation and you lose your closest allies and friends.
