AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
Although others work well, this is one I've written myself and am willing to share. Before starting anything, calm yourself. I usually do this by lighting a candle and meditating for a half hour or so. Sometimes more depending on How I feel. After meditating, I snuff out the candle with my fingers, (Never Blow) and continue on with the spell I'm carrying out. In this case, finding your Spirit Animal. After meditating go outside during the day. If you can get to a forest or even a quiet park this is great, if not, your backyard should work fine. Find a nice cozy place to sit on the ground where you can be relaxed and take in nature, I prefer taking off shoes and socks and digging your feet into grass. Take a few deep breaths, close your eyes and begin to chant, "Spirit Animal who knows me well, come and listen to my spell. Lead me to the distant path, lead me onward, home at last." try not to be rushed when chanting, a loud voice is not needed either. As you chant, become one with the nature. After a while, you should be visited by an animal. Something in the flesh. Talk softly to the animal, beckon it to come to you. If it truly is your spirit animal, and the time is right, it will come to you without fear, and once you have touched it, you will immediately understand the connection as if you were the animal.
If it meets in the flesh wouldn't your spirit animal be limited to those creatures which live wild in your area?
Also, a word of caution with the whole digging your feet into the grass thing. In domesticated places (like backyards) and certain wildernesses this is fine, but in a lot of others you'll find yourself digging your feet into pointy rocks, burrs, and slivers of plant material to jab under your toe nails. Always check the terrain before trying that.
My spirit animal is the Falcon, when I discovered this I was in an area where the falcon that visited me is not natural. Afterwards it followed me home and nested in one of my trees, something also very strange. I see her various times during the day and she is very protective of our home. She leaves "gifts" like a cat would and I am occasionally asked if the Falcon is a pet. On the matter of thorns and such, yeah you really need to watch for those, my first time was in a meadow, so I had no problem.
