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've been looking for a spell to help me astral project. I know there are many spells for this very topic, but i want one that is specific to helping my body falling asleep, and mind staying awake. Any suggestions? OR I was thinking of making my own spell. Although, i cant think of any herbs, oils, and colors that would go good with this type of spell. Does anyone have some good advice?

try burning lavender incense, it's soothing, relaxing and will put most people to sleep when added to a tea. personally, i've never cast a spell to help me project, it just takes time and practice to get into that state.
Really you don't need an actual spell but more an 'intent' to astral project. I stumbled upon a method myself just trying to project...
FIRST, you must shield yourself or cast a circle or whatever method you use. Now, second, try lying down on your bed, wear non-constricting clothing (pajamas or scrubs, that sort of thing) and just close your eyes and just 'be' for a few moments [meditate] then try to lay as still as possible, so still that you stop feeling your body [if you've ever done this in a pool as a kid then you are one step ahead] just concentrate on becoming still and clearing your thoughts... This took about 45 minutes to an hour the first few times I did this, but after practice it speeds up to 20-30 minutes... When you are still, usually you are dozing off to sleep but not deeply at all, as long as you try NOT to feel your body you shouldn't end up falling fully asleep but you end up in the 'gray zone' between consciousness and sleeping... then you will know you are getting close when you actually FEEL your entire body buzzing slightly, then it will intensify ~ this will awaken you only a little and you will start to actually hear it, it sounds like a TV channel with just static, keep concentrating a few for minutes until you 'POP' out, or your arms may 'pop' out first, then the rest of you... You might get nervous, excited, a slightly elevated heart rate, etc. the first few times because you're feeling it happen [which will prevent you from exiting fully so stay calm and surrender to it] ... When you do pop out DO NOT BE AFRAID, if you feel that there is someone else in the room, know that there is NOT, you are 'feeling' the presence of your own body near you. Becoming afraid will pull you right back in so now you know that there is nothing to fear around you.
Only one warning ~ The reason I say to shield yourself beforehand is so that you can keep from getting 'attachments' if you end up too close to the lower astral planes. Read a little more about that but don't give in to those articles that fear-monger... trust yourself and your shielding, it is safe to experiment.
ANYWAY ~ This is just MY method so it may or may not work for you but you can get a better explanation with a book dedicated to this subject, I have one in .pdf format so if you or anyone want to pm me I can email it to you, it's called 'the Astral Projection Workbook'.. check amazon for the book summary. Also, the book Astral Dynamics by Robert Bruce is a good one, too, but it is quite involved and pretty thick, yet still a good read [I only have a hard copy of that one, not digital, lol]
Good luck on your quest, I hope I've been helpful! :)
