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.
Visualization does help immensly. When you visualize the resuls of your spell, you are pouring energy into it. Visualizing getting your desired results pours positive energy into it's creation. If you focus on it not working (or have strong doubt) you pour negative energy into your working. This could lead to failure or undesired results.
This is why it is considered part of "the basics" to some practitioners.
I am one those people that thinks visualization or fantasizing if you want to call it that is the most important thing of all.
And I mean specifically visualizing and seeing in your minds eye what you want, need and desire for a result as well as how you get it. Practicing control over your ability to visualize is part of learning spell casting.
The most common and best way to do that is to imagine a tennis ball sized object made of energy. That energy may be visualized like a transparent color. Visualize your self tossing it back and forth in your hands. Try even tossing it to a friend who tosses it back.
Like seeing the ball of energy in your minds eye see visually what you want to happen when casting a spell. That is visualization with a spell. It is very powerful.

Yes. Most call it 'visualizing' though. Just saying 'I want a promotion' doesn't help as much as closing your eyes and picturing yourself working hard, the boss calling you to his/her office and offering you a promotion. It not only helps the spell, but you can motivate yourself in the process. Keep in mind you will need to work hard, too often people cast a spell then sit back and wait for it to happen. Magick opens the door, if you don't walk through the doorway, don't get upset.
