Julie Simmons’ Sun Sign Predictions – Spring 2021

OVERVIEW

Listen for the voice of the turtle. You may be tired of the same old news but when you ‘get’ how you are an expression of nature, truly a child of this earth, it all becomes more interesting. When we calm our own nervous system it will help calm the collective one. The gap between circumstances and a plan to deal with them remains. But we’re getting there. The absence of Venus from the visible sky this spring suggests we need some rethinking regarding our pleasures. Which of these harm the planet? How can we change? It’s a process. Look inward and consider the simple pleasures, the un-frenetic ones. The online world demands constant consumption, relentless proof that we are having a good time. Genuine introspection will bring us to a higher quality of all things beautiful and pleasurable.

March: It’s not easy to be born again to spring. The body adjusts. Help it. Notice the feeling of waking up. Be like the first flowers of spring – delicate, colourful, promising nothing in particular but renewal. New Moon: March 13. Full Moon: March 28th.

April: The big issue of 2021 is to learn all we can, building on what we know in a rapidly changing world. It’s all in the application. If it doesn’t work it isn’t practical. New Moon: April 11. Full Moon: April 26.

May: Listen. Focus. Distraction is easy in the moment but it eats time and wastes energy. Be like a juggler; keep your centre even as you notice when to catch and when to release. Movement from the still place at the centre is the opposite of distraction. New Moon: May 11. Full Moon: May 26.

Aries

MAR. 20 to APR. 19  

March: A New Moon calls you to listen for subtle messages arising from dreams and from thoughts that swim up from the depths. The Full Moon reveals how you meet life’s challenges. Look with an eye toward justice, kindness and cooperation for a better world.

April: At the New Moon set an intention for your body. Exercise, vitality, and rebirth are the promise. It’s up to you to make it happen. At the Full Moon survey your resources, who you do and don’t share them with, and how best to manage them. Avoidance will bite you in the backside.

May: You want it all at the New Moon just like everyone. Be honest about how much is more than enough. Your greatest resource is simplicity. The greatest benefit at the Full Moon comes when you unplug. As you watch the powerful antics of the mind, consider the acronym: W.A.I.T. which asks the question; ‘Why am I talking?’ Say less, hear more.

Taurus

APR. 20 to MAY 20   

March: The best intentions are ones made for the good of all. Let yours be thus at the New Moon. At the Full Moon things that go bump in the night (and wake you up) are calling you to inner awareness and action. Be a spiritual warrior – not in control of external forces but master of internal ones.

April: To maintain health requires an intention toward integration of body, mind, and soul at the New Moon. Empowered from within, you create conditions for genuine healing which benefits everyone. The Full Moon shines its light on relationships. With Venus being invisible you might ask: Why do I care? Questioning all aspects of relationship doesn’t guarantee answers but sets the stage for improvement.

May: Make intention at the New Moon towards shoring up simple pleasures that make life sweet. To live from your values is a calling. Distractions knock at your door around the Full Moon. Take a deep breath. Release. Allow distractions to settle. In this way you regain control of your attention.

Gemini

MAY 21 to JUNE 21  

March: Set an intention at the New Moon to be the best you can. Get lots of physical exercise but don’t overdo it. Enough is as good as a feast. The Full Moon shows you that by staying connected to people you love you stay positive. Dance, sing, play however you can.

April: Liberate your mind at the New Moon by allowing yourself to imagine the future, not only for yourself but with and for others. You may be one little spec of life in a Great Big Sea but you matter as much and as little as others. The Full Moon requires retreat into the body’s wisdom. S/he speaks from the sacred place where you know yourself to be fully alive and full of love.

May: Vowing to make the most of what you have and who you are is inspiring and does not require grandiosity. The New Moon asks that you acknowledge yourself as the main character in your story and part of a grand design. At the Full Moon be awake to truly listening to others, even when they are difficult. The heart opens when the mind calms.

Cancer

JUNE 21 to JULY 21   

March: Before COVID it was easier to dream big. Now we see many broken dreams. Nevertheless it’s dreams that bring life into being. Dare to dream of a free and open world at the New Moon. You can test its viability at the Full Moon when you see what it takes to make a dream come true.

April: The New Moon asks you to put intention into your ambitions. Much could be done to bring together people of solid values, who know what’s worth having. Spend time with them at the Full Moon.

May: A good laugh is as good as an intention at the new Moon. Kick back and enjoy your favourite comedies or just the silly-ness of life. Even better when shared. A good laugh cleans the pipes. Watch the world dash madly off in all directions at the Full Moon. No need to be part of that fray. Astute observation makes us wiser still.

Leo

JULY 22 to AUG. 22   

March: Make a statement regarding commitment to inner work at the New Moon. There is always more because the world is constantly changing. The Full Moon is time for sharing ideas. Focus on things that matter.

April: Inspiration fuels intentions at the New Moon. Life is an adventure, even if it’s not the one you think you signed on for. At the Full Moon take a look at what you can, can’t, and absolutely refuse to do. Mere observation is instructive.

May: Stand by your heartfelt ambitions at the New Moon. The best ambitions come from the heart. The Full Moon reveals the blueprint underlying your life’s path. Perhaps it requires some adaptation.

Virgo

AUG. 23 to SEPT. 22  

March: The question of the New Moon is not Why am I here?, but rather Who am I here with? Relationships open doors to other worlds or at least other ways of being in this one. The Full Moon displays a vast array of issues regarding resources including trust, reward, intimacy and pleasure as well as security. Look around.

April: If you could control the world it might be a better place but consider how difficult it is to control even yourself. These issues are real and present at the New Moon. Focus your attention on your intention for personal transformation.

May: Following your path is not easy. It helps to focus on it at the New Moon. Hint: It’s not straight and narrow. Yours is a left-handed path, twisting and turning organically in resonance with the natural world. Anxiety gets you nowhere at the Full Moon but anxiety can be a sign of heightened perception, a good thing to know about yourself.

Libra

SEPT. 23 to OCT. 22   

March: Burnout from a long, difficult winter requires replenishment of body, mind, and spirit. Make this your intention at the New Moon. Follow through for at least a month. The antics of others can make you laugh or cry, depending on your perspective at the Full Moon. Humour and wisdom are first cousins.

April: Renewal is the promise of the season. At the New Moon listen with all your heart to the stirrings of new life, in yourself as well as people and nature which surround you. Simple pleasures shared with trusted others give you real joy at the Full Moon. Find safe ways to connect.

May: What fascinates you most about the natural world? The New Moon encourages you to research and/or immerse yourself in the mudluscious mandate of spring. At the Full Moon you combine love of nature with your immediate local environment. What lives and thrives in your neighborhood?

Scorpio

OCT. 23 to NOV. 21  

March: An intention arises naturally from your love of life and for the Good of All at the New Moon. Trust it. The Full Moon points toward your lifestyle. It’s the small stuff: health, work, and daily practice that makes the big stuff easier. How are you doing?

April: When the Moon is new we make intentions. This one is about you using your mighty will. How might you direct it toward transforming your life? Get real with relationships at the Full Moon, which isn’t to say ruthless or mean. Simply acknowledging how you feel about people is plenty.

May: Be a good listener. Listen with your belly and you hear everything. Practice this from the New Moon onwards. Some say the chaos of our world is on account of being between stories. The Full Moon asks you to consider which stories you tell yourself as you navigate your life on Earth.

Sagittarius

NOV. 22 to DEC. 21   

March: Concern for your family, be it blood relatives or all beings, is the starting place for your intentions at the New Moon. All human interactions are political when you think about it. Observe group dynamics at the Full Moon; just because it’s human, not because it’s good or bad.

April: Let your enthusiasm for that which you love focus your intention for the New Moon. Humans are fundamentally creative. Love and fun are great ways to generate creativity. Get down to business at the Full Moon. No time to waste.

May: Let your intention for the New Moon be toward self-care. You matter. Pure and simple. And so does your wellbeing. Starting before and lingering a bit after the Full Moon, it’s all about relationships. S/he said they said. Be a good listener but don’t let your voice be drowned out.

Capricorn

DEC. 22 to JAN. 19  

March: Fond dreams of nature inspire intentions at the New Moon. How can you spend more time there? Right outside your door is some version of the natural world. Regard it with awe. The Full Moon shines its light on your level of excellence and mastery. How’s your report card?

April: What can you do with your ancestral gifts? Wherever they came from, whatever their struggles and accomplishments, your intention at the New Moon is to make their lives worthwhile because of your own. Survey the landscape of possibilities, without attachment at the Full Moon. Be open.

May: Follow your nose to the good smells of spring, flowers, and maybe just the green earth. Your best intentions at the New Moon arise out of love for this planet. By the Full Moon you find yourself hard at work, cultivating. Imagine your life as a fertile field. What do you see growing there?

Aquarius

JAN. 20 to FEB. 18   

March: Every new moon allows us to begin again. This month take a good look at your priorities. What matters? What is just a waste of time, energy, money and/or love? The Full Moon points to the fact that words have power. How you use them matters. Don’t just talk. Say something or be quiet.

April: Form an intention to focus more on what you actually want to say at the New Moon. Be bold, speak truth, and give some thought to whether or not it makes sense. Stand your ground, as you are wont to do, at the Full Moon. Your ideals are important. Holding firm without rigidity is the task.

May: Let go of the persistent yet useless sense that things should/could have been different. Make an intention at the New Moon to honour all those upon whose shoulders you stand even as you understand fully that this is your life. At the Full Moon shake loose and have some fun with whoever wants to play with you. The less serious, the better.

Pisces

FEB. 19 to MAR. 20  

March: As you prepare for a spring like no other, imagine yourself swimming to the surface of a big body of water. What intention comes to mind as you view the world above? At the Full Moon take stock of all that you have, all that you want, and all you must share.

April: How should or could you spend your resources? Let this question guide your intention for the New Moon. We can’t always get what we want. The bright and illuminating full Moon shows you something real, something that isn’t just in your mind. What is it?

May: As confusion begins to swirl, be flexible. Make an intention at the New Moon to learn, to listen, and allow thoughts to arise and pass without having to hold on to any just yet. The Full Moon reminds you that family matters. Whether they are right there or live only in memory, each of them contributes something to various parts of yourself. It’s almost magical.
