The Stars, Above & Within

As long as the human race has walked the earth, we have looked above at the night sky and tried to explain the patterns we have found in the enigmatic night sky. Astrology is how we interpret the stars and their placement, and thus their impact on us.

At Enigma Life, I want you to be able to find all the ways to bring the power of the zodiac into your life.

Sun Signs, Moon Signs & Rising Signs

Most people only know the sign they were born under, and don’t realize that there are two more signs that help make up who they are. The actual name for the commonly known sign is actually the “Sun Sign”. The other two signs are your Moon Sign and your Rising Sign

Sun Sign The most easily identifiable of the three signs, the Sun sign is determined by your birthday. This particular aspect is the sign of your central, or core personality. They also describe, in very general terms, your essential qualities.

You know how you like to express whatever pops into your head? Using a filter doesn't really work to your advantage on the 1st and 2nd, so talk, text, video chat, or email to your heart's content! You're a creature of habit on the 8th and 9th, and some may even call you a little obsessive. If you're having trouble leaving the house until it looks spotless, you should probably let your friends know you might be running late. Very. You beat around the bush more than usual on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, and you can't help but make little snide comments instead of saying how you truly feel. Be a bigger person and just say what's on your mind. Honesty will definitely be appreciated more than sarcasm. The 22nd, 23rd, and 24th could be problematic days if you give in to your low self-confidence, so try to spend time around people who build you up. You have so much to offer the world and it's about time you realized that. You've got your mind on your money and your money on your mind on the 27th and 28th, so be on the lookout for good investments. Save now so you can splurge later.

The 1st and 2nd are just kind of weird days. You know the type. You're more scattered than usual and you can't seem to focus. Needless to say, save those important tasks and decisions for another time. The 3rd and 4th are good days to venture outside your comfort zone, but be ready to retreat if you don't get the response you were looking for right away. Your ego doesn't react well to getting bruised, like, at all. You might bump into an intriguing stranger on the 15th or 16th, with some kind of relationship possibly resulting from the accidental meeting. Does it have a higher meaning or is it just one of those fun little coincidences? Perhaps it deserves some further thought. You're in a thrifty mood on the 25th and 26th, so if you have to buy anyone a present, they'll probably get something out of the discount bin. You'd rather save your money and splurge for something you really want on the 27th and 28th, especially if the recipient is a casual colleague or neighbor you don't know well.

The 1st and 2nd are your days to shine. You have all the right answers to everyone's probing questions, and you know just the right thing to say to anyone you talk to. Your knowledge of trivia is spot-on, and what you don't know you're eager to learn about. Your family issues are prevalent on the 8th and 9th, and no one really understands how complicated they can be. Trying to find someone who sympathizes with you can be difficult, but it's worth the effort. Like-minded people are by far your biggest allies. You want to win the moral victory on the 15th and 16th, but the truth is, your beliefs put you somewhere smack dab in the middle. You don't tell the truth all the time, but you're probably better than others when it comes to helping a friend in need. Try to avoid talking about yourself in extremes. Your entrepreneurial spirit gets hold of an idea and runs with it on the 27th and 28th, which could lead to something quite extraordinary. What are your doubts and how can you silence them? Big things are on the way once you start to truly believe in yourself.

There's no other way to put it on the 1st and 2nd but that you're about to be snowed under. When you feel like an avalanche of things is coming at you, the only thing you can do is prepare for impact. Honestly, just have a concrete plan and hope for the best. The 10th and 11th aren't your most effortless days, but going through obstacles builds character. You know which friends are on speed dial. You may not ever have to call 911, but it's nice to know that someone's on the other end of the line for you if and when you need them. You run up against some resistance on the 17th, 18th, and 19th, but you're a force to be reckoned with. Once you have a plan you want to pursue, good luck to anyone who tries to get in your way. A resistance to authority could stymie your success on the 25th and 26th, but you really don't feel like suggesting a compromise. Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in no matter what the cost. You're a voracious reader on the 29th and 30th, and you devour facts and new words. You're on your way to becoming one smart cookie!

You don't see strangers on the 1st and 2nd, only people you have yet to meet. Your networking skills are unparalleled, and you definitely have the gift of gab. If you aren't already in sales or marketing, maybe you should consider a career switch. The crowd might think you're down for the count on the 3rd and 4th, but you're about to make a stunning comeback. No one can come from behind quite like you, and you do it with style and grace. A secret rendezvous is tempting on the 10th and 11th, but do you really want to bash the faith of those who believe in you most? You're always going to face things enticing you to take a different road, but you do best when you stay aimed straight ahead. You've got a big ego on the 17th, 18th, and 19th, but really, why shouldn't you? You've proven that you're one of the best, so why not just accept the applause when it comes your way? You question if you've chosen the right direction on the 27th and 28th, and it might be a good idea to ask the opinion of someone close to you. Your best friend probably knows you well.

You have a lot of concerns on the 3rd and 4th, and your problems might keep you distracted from what you're supposed to be doing. If possible, take a leave of absence or at least a few days off to deal with whatever's bothering you. You're extremely punctual and concise on the 8th and 9th, and getting right to the point is your main objective. It's hard not to fault other people for being late, but it's clear that you're running on a much different clock than most of the rest of the world right now. You love travel and everything to do with it on the 15th and 16th, and if you can't afford to take a trip just yet, read up on a place you want to visit. It won't be long until you can afford to book a ticket for you and your bestie to an exotic location like Machu Picchu or Turks and Caicos. You're curious about doing things differently on the 20th and 21st, but changing your routine is actually a big step for you. Study other people's methods to get an idea of what to change on your own.

There's a lot to talk about on the 1st and 2nd, right? If you've been holding anything back, these are the days to let loose with whatever has been on your mind. Others look to you for advice on the 5th, 6th, and 7th, as you may be considered an expert in one or more fields. Maybe you don't remember doing anything particularly remarkable, but other people clearly think you've got the answers. Sometimes it's okay to fake it until you make it. A mystery penetrates your thoughts on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, and it's hard for you to sleep without knowing the answer to life's deepest riddles. You're on track for an important project to advance on the 22nd, 23rd, or 24th, but don't be too disappointed if things don't work out exactly the way you planned. Leave room for adjustments where necessary. The 29th and 30th are good days to stay alert to what's going on at work or school, because you could be left out if you don't pay attention to the details. Coming in last is not your destiny.

You have a dual identity on the 3rd and 4th, which helps you deal with all that you have on your plate. It's almost as if there are two of you, which gives you more than enough time and energy to cross everything off of your lengthy to-do list. You're the life of the party on the 10th and 11th, which is quite a different role for you to play. Is it that you're so much livelier or are the people you're with just kind of quiet? Roll with it either way. You're at your most powerful on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, and very few people you come across can resist your magnetic charm. You can pretty much have your choice of anything in the land, but the best thing about you is that you don't make anyone feel bad for having fewer choices than you do. You have your share of haters on the 25th and 26th, but there isn't much you can do about it. Haters gonna hate, it's that simple. The 29th and 30th are great days to debate your point, but avoid talking circles around someone for no reason. Get your point across and then move on to the next discussion.

There's an uneven energy in the air on the 3rd and 4th, and it might be hard to figure out what's really going on. Try to go with the flow if you can, and don't let other people's negativity stymie your forward progress. There are a lot of details that need to be covered on the 8th and 9th, and if there's no one else to make the plan, the work will probably fall into your lap. You're a great leader when you want to be, so why not step up to the plate and take the initiative? It's a lot of work, but you're the one who will get the kudos when the project succeeds. You're not lonely on the 15th and 16th, because whether your friends are near or far, they all let you know (in their own way) that they're there for you if and when you need them. Create memories with the people you're closest to now so you have something to reflect on in your later years. You have a ton of stuff to do on the 27th and 28th, but you aren't likely to feel overwhelmed or overburdened. You have just enough energy to finish everything on your lengthy to-do list.

You're a magnet for flaky people on the 1st and 2nd, so if you want something done right, it looks like you're going to have to do it yourself! It would be nice if other people were as reliable as you, but right now that just isn't the case. There are impostors to deal with on the 5th, 6th, and 7th, and it can be frustrating when you feel like you aren't getting the whole truth. Just keep doing things the way you're doing them, because you're slowly learning you may be the only person you can truly depend on. You struggle to stay objective on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, but the worst thing you can do is judge a book by its cover. Give a friend or lover the chance to explain before you condemn their actions. You feel like changing your style on the 20th and 21st, but you aren't quite ready to jump into the deep end headfirst. Start with something minor and work your way up. Endings are a part of life, but they seem particularly brutal on the 27th and 28th. It's hard to adjust once you get used to something, but sometimes changes can be for the best.

Your emotions get the better of you on the 1st and 2nd, but you don't want anyone to see you cry. You're a pro at holding back your true feelings, but sometimes it's good to let them out. Testing the waters is natural on the 10th and 11th, so why not try something you've never tried before? Eat a new food or experiment with a new hobby. There's no shame in doing it wrong the first time, and if you don't like it, you never have to do it again! You're frustrated by the limits put on you on the 17th, 18th, and 19th, and you long to live by your own rules. Would you make a good leader? Have you thought about becoming a politician or leading a revolution? There's no time like the present. You tend to get numbers mixed up and transposed on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, so try not to do anything money related if at all possible. If you deal with cash transactions at work, be extra careful when making change. Family members like to tell you stories from the past on the 27th and 28th, and it's a good idea to listen. It's important to remember where you came from.

Stay as motionless as possible during tense moments on the 1st and 2nd, One of your least favorite things is confrontation, and the quieter you are, the less likely a teacher is to call on you or a speaker is to single you out in a crowd. Your preference to remain anonymous continues on the 12th, 13th, and 14th, but for entirely different reasons. You love to play 20 questions and all kinds of other mental games where you control who gets the information and when they get it. If the activities include letting your personal details remain a mystery, too, well, all the better. Other people comment on how good you look on the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, and you feel good, too. When you get a compliment, just say thank you without overanalyzing it. It's clear you're radiating positive energy, so why deny or fight it?! Art and culture take center stage on the 27th and 28th, and you love going to hot new galleries, popular plays, or innovative restaurants. You can appreciate the finer things in life, but that doesn't mean you don't like the simpler ones, too.
