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.
I get many questions about astral projection, and I have seen how complicated methods of astral projection are. This is what I think I'd the easiest method. At night, when you're in bed, (It doesn't hurt to meditate before this.) close your eyes and think the word banana or nanana... In your head. This is so you can create a white noise. You cannot fall asleep in a middle of a thought. But if you create a white noise, your body will be tricked into falling asleep. Your mind will be awake. So you'll be awake while sleeping. The banana or nanana... has to go on for about 15 to 20 minutes. But you should keep thinking that until you start feeling vibrations. Then, simply try sitting up without physically moving. It it very important not to move physically or your body will wake up. If you manage sitting up in your astral body, the vibrations will get stronger. Don't get too excited. Just get out of your physical body and you can do whatever it is you want to do. I didn't actually get fully out of my body because I thought I had died so I got scared and I moved my arm. That made me fully awake. But I did manage to get partially out on the first try. I hope this was helpful. You can ask me questions about this, but I'm not an expert on astral projection.
I think the largest issue with teaching astral projection is that everyone has different methods that work best for them. When I was first learning I tried most of the common techniques out there and never had much luck then one night whilst lying in bed I pretty much just took a deep breath and "fell out of my body". Much like you I panicked the first time awoke within a few instants but I think it's that initial step that's the hardest part, once you've done it once it does become much easier after that.
By the way, just realised that I forgot to actually say that I liked your method. I find bed is probably the best place to practice, meditation is great but there's something about the state of mind bed puts you in thats great for ap I find, so long as you don't fall asleep that is.
Falling asleep is why many people can't astral project. They get so comfortable that they fall asleep. I do it all the time. I think a way to solve this is by finding a surface that isn't too comfortable, but more comfortable than a floor.
Great imput on AP :D I have learned of a new thing called binaural beats. Its a realy neat method to help with meditaion, ap, lucid dreaming, learning and abunch of other things.. If anyone has issues with trying to relax or even; like for ap to keep your mind away while you body is falling into sleep this is a great way to get started.. of chorse its not recomended to be permanant :P otherwise it becomes a crutch and then you never let your mind workout and be able to do it on your own. :)
