This interpretation can be read for both your sun sign and your rising sign.
We are currently witnessing global changes that are beginning to impact our personal and collective lives. Keeping our hearts and minds focused on Sai Baba and His teachings becomes even more important now, as we seek His guidance and love in these confusing times.
March 22 - April 21 and Aries Rising
Dealing with worldwide issues is frustrating for Aries people, as there is seldom an immediate solution. This seems to be a source of stress for you over this next year. Global problems will challenge business and career areas. Delays and gaps in services may occur. However, at the same time, strong and positive connections to government, legal and spiritual sources reinforce your efforts in all areas of life. Your stars are divided here between what works for you and what does not. You will have to seek a middle path of tolerance for dealing with many diverse energies rather than identifying what you feel is right or wrong. January is especially challenging for making decisions as facts may not be available. Sudden changes occur in February. February and March improve finances. Venus energies are favourable in July, but it is best to keep things casual for now. Aries, while your services to others are many, your ability to give correct and immediate aid is unique to all other signs.
April 22 - May 21 and Taurus Rising
A new trend for Taurus careers begins now. Most will travel. Many will meet important people around the world to create strong business ties as also promote international values. World changes will bring your creative side out, as you work to stabilize your areas of interest. Non-career Taurus people will further their education or spiritual goals by studying under famous and successful people. A more global approach to life enhances and uplifts at this time. In January, sudden career events lead to technological upgrades. Misleading communications in May need to be sorted out, while positive finances can be expected in July. Someone you meet over the next few months, will become very important to you in a year's time. Taurus, because you are interested in stability and security, you seem to be aware of helpful people and resources in your community as well as state wide. In times of difficulty you are the one that knows who and what can be drawn upon, so as to help.
May 22 - June 21 and Gemini Rising
Your talents in all communication areas are well known, but this year, you will need to check information for accuracy. In a world of change, it appears that much of what you currently learn and hear is not accurate. Research all important data before transmitting. Many adjustments and revisions occur in your career, as well as in the lives of family and co-workers. However, January, March and July bring more security and financial improvement into your life. People from your past get in touch with you in April and will become more present in your life over the next few years. Spiritual classes along with active forms of spiritual expression, such as yoga, martial arts and dance, become important to you now. Take advantage of invitations for fun, and relaxation, especially in July. Gemini, your greatest service to others is the ability to transmit information according to the ability of others to understand. In times of discord, this can be the most important function of all.
June 22 - July 21 and Cancer Rising
You are entering a period of division. On the one hand the stars continue to be favourable for spiritual, creative, travel, educational and legal pursuits. On the other hand the needs of family and partners give your more responsibilities. Some of them may want you to change your goals or go against your better judgement. In that case, seek third parties to mediate. The issues of the world seem to affect those close to you in their personal lives more than in yours right now. Be fair, but aware that too much stress in a Cancer individual can cause health issues. Your psyche is sensitive; you need to take time away from home or job to re-connect with your inner being from time to time. January and May can be chaotic. Watch health in January and June. However, the month of April begins a long trend of positive changes in work and in finances for you. Cancer, you always feel the pain of others and like tending to their daily needs. You are most comfortable with individuals, rather than large groups. You are best at serving those in need in their homes, bringing food, or even just sitting and listening.
July 22 - August 21 and Leo Rising
Leo, over the next six months, worldly-practical opportunities are not in your forecast. Instead, creative and spiritual goals will be your focus. Your preferred lifestyle includes public attention and admiration for your many talents. But the planets want you to drop back into your core and connect to your inner being in a much stronger way. Challenges come into your thinking of what is reality and what is not - both in the wisdom part of you as well as in the analytical brain. January offers travel and educational events that interest you but avoid travel mid-February. Possible changes in career can occur in March or April due to world issues, but finances pick up in June and July. Leo, your charm and mannerisms draw people's attention to you. They are eager to listen to what you say and to be entertained. In the areas of service, this can give others a much needed distraction from their problems and help them relax. You also have the gift of saying difficult things in a pleasant way making negative information more palatable.
August 22 - September 21 and Virgo Rising
Virgo, you are still in a positive trend for your teaching and counselling skills - especially with children, and now, with the general public. In fact, working with the elderly becomes more prominent over the current year. Stress develops between your family and partners or spouse that is not easily solved in January, May and June. Secrets may come out. The unease in the changing world may actually benefit you, in many areas, but not financially until April. At that time a slow trend for better money begins, especially for August birthdays. Children and spouses spend more time together over the next six months but not in the areas you prefer. Virgo, you are a double sign and therefore have two symbols - the maiden and a stalk of wheat; the maiden representing your pristine mind that can focus despite changing emotions and the wheat symbolizing your desire to feed and provide staples for the world. Your services to humanity can lie in either direction, but together they give you a strong ability to ascertain the supplies needed for unexpected situations.
September 22 - October 21 and Libra Rising
So much about your life has been about the basics - family, health, and partners; that general trend still continues. Many irritating people and situations over the last few months, begin to move away or become less prominent in your affairs. Your focus, now, will be drawn to all communication work, especially writing and teaching. Some articles and books come to your attention that contain misleading and incorrect information. Most likely, you will choose to become involved in correcting the half-truths, even though others may disagree with you. A Sagittarius supports you. Family concerns do not seem to change. Do what you can, but try to withdraw your emotions. A difficult associate changes his/her position and seems happier in February and March. Take care of your health in April. New and positive energies in July bring special social functions. Libra, your service to humanity is maintaining an atmosphere of equality and fairness. No one is more important than the other in your eyes. In difficult times, people are not afraid to ask for help from you. Others will follow your lead.
October 22 - November 21 and Scorpio Rising
Your finances improve over the next six months but be careful of taking risks in January and June. World issues that cause changes in local economies may benefit you. Travel in May is personally positive, but not for your business. Home and family concerns become more intense mid-February through April for early birthday Scorpios. Be more aware of your children's activities, as they may be drifting into unwanted directions. However, the need to express their own creativity is sincere. You may want to re-adjust their guidelines a bit. Scorpio, it is hard for you to adjust to timelines and scheduling, but that seems to be working for you at this time. Reasonable time tables give one a sense of security and achievement even in spiritual practices. You are a researcher and mystery solver; a truth seeker. Your talents are best used in discovering motives and causes, whether in science or psychology. You help prevent difficult events from re-occurring. You are a champion of human rights and often support others in similar activities. Watch for opportunities to speak out for good causes this year.
November 22 - December 21 and Sagittarius Rising
Sagittarius, you feel like stepping back from responsibilities; this is a natural part of your freedom loving nature. But this year, trusting someone to fill in for you or take charge of your affairs could lead to problems. Unreliable and deceptive energies make it hard for you to see reality in many categories of your chart. Take the time to be thorough and accurate, especially in April and June. You can be spiritual and analytical at the same time. The best months for positive actions are January and July. Stick to your budget in May. Change and re-structuring of your financial plans may be required due to world issues, but this is doable. Family and housing issues remain the same for now. Sagittarius, you are a natural teacher, philosopher and outdoor enthusiast. Let your love of knowledge and zest for fun be a part of your service to others. Spend more time with children as well as tending to the basic needs of others.
December 22 - January 21 and Capricorn Rising
You have little patience for delays and changes, Capricorn, yet world events have pushed you in that direction lately. Products and services that you are used to, will change. But, you may find much more creativity in yourself as you devise alternate ways and means. January and February issues demand solutions that cost money, and you may feel overwhelmed; stick only to the necessary. Children become more cooperative in March. This year, watch your finances and the people that handle them. A disagreement with others may lead to a break-off, but your values remain intact. A Taurus friend becomes more important in your life in May. Serving others in need will take on a more necessary role for you now. You do your best in a managerial role, coordinating efforts, timing and services. You seem to know the right person for the right job. Do delegate, but always check to make sure others have met their obligations. Your symbol is a mountain goat with a fish tail, indicating that you can survive on land or in water when necessary, but always climb back to the mountain top.
January 22 - February 21 and Aquarius Rising
Planetary blocks to your career path have dissipated and you can move forward in your goals. Your stars favour working with larger organizations that work for public interests. Also, the past, in this life and past lives, is highlighted. People, places and events come forward to enhance your life now or for you to review in a more enlightened time. Your Sun sign ruler is Uranus. It is entering another sector of your chart in March, and will be there for seven years. It will focus on your philosophic foundation, family and housing. You can expect some changes in those categories. Positive activity in communications, can be expected in January and April and disagreements with partners in July. Watch expenses in January and June. Aquarius, you tend to have an overall view of life. You question the wisdom of short term projects that might cause problems in the long term. While this talent is not as personal as other signs, the value of it is equally important for future human issues as well as the environment. In a more compact way, you also question the effect of the world situations on human values and freedoms. This is your service to others.
February 22 - March 21 and Pisces Rising
You will continue to be in a favorable cycle of creative-spiritual progress but you will be challenged from time to time. Others may oppose your ideas and beliefs; some with legal questions. Former friends and groups support you. Conflict with people in charge as well as miscommunications occur in January and June. This may lead yo to find new avenues of expression as well as a possible change in jobs. May brings some conflicts in the home, but positive opportunities for local, technical work. A friend from the past gets in touch and is looking to move to your area. A relative offers to help. Stick to your plans, move around the challenges and keep bad habits in check. World changes can benefit you. Your faith and love for all shines. While other signs are drawn to attend to the basic needs of the community, you know that flowers on the table, music or a hug for a crying child uplifts the spirit and gives hope. Let these assets be part of your service.
