Take a deep breath and get your self-care game on point because this week’s astrology is going to trigger some stress.

On the 10th-12th warring Mars is forming a square to hates-to-admit-it’s wrong Saturn, and it’s important that you’re aware of a few things. Saturn can set unrealistic expectations and Mars can be a selfish dink; the combo can have us setting unrealistic demands on ourselves or others. When Mars and Saturn are in hard aspect of each other it feels kind of like road rage – you feel stuck by your circumstance and like there’s nothing you can do. Repressed feels have an unpleasant way of boiling over, turning insecurity into paranoia, sadness into blame, and frustration into rage. This transit can kick up some serious defensive entitlement, so try to remember this: you are not better or worse than anyone. That kind of hierarchical thinking will only lead to power struggles and oppressive ego games that will make you feel awful. This is a great time for working hard to work out the details, or to execute your plans; it’s not so good for seeing quick and easy results. Anything worth having is worth fighting for – but not all fights are worth what they cost. It might make you feel better for a minute to snap at someone, but because of Saturn’s involvement you can trust that what you do now will impact you in the long-run. Find healthy ways of managing stress – even if it’s only remembering to breathe.

From the 14th-16th Mercury will sit opposite Uranus. Both of these planets govern your nervous system and your mind, so this transit is going to create mental tension, unease, and the potential for genius. Fritz Perls said that anxiety is excitement without the breath, and I urge you to text out this theory over the next few days. Drink your calming teas, run around the block, or do whatever you know to be calming to your nerves before you seek to fix things. This combo can unleash secrets and other surprises, so curb your gossip unless you’re willing to have it boomerang back at you. The good news is that your restlessness can be a source of inspiration if you play it right. Be present for whatever happens without jumping into the future. Channel the nervousness of this period into earnest inquiry. If you can be interested in the why and how of things, you’ll be able to learn without stirring the pot. Let people reveal themselves to you; you don’t need to facilitate, fix, or force a durn thing.

Jupiter has entered Scorpio and it’ll hang out there for about a year. Scorpio asks us to let go, and Jupiter wants more, more, more. You can expect more intensity to your desires, especially your adult ones. This can be a period when you go deep into your most base desires and things can get really messy, really quickly, if you’re not careful. Scorpio loves things that are taboo, filthy, transformative, and deep. It’s the energy of creation and destruction. Jupiter is all about growth, exploration and the truth. The best-case scenario here is that you confront the shadow side of your desires and transform them. Jupiter can act as a get-out-of-jail-free card and help you to heal in broader strides than you otherwise would. Addressing compulsions, addictions, and self-destructive habits can lead to real growth now. Conversely, this combination make you feel entitled to grab whatever you want, and drive yourself until something forces you to stop. Don’t let your drive to satisfy your desires go unchecked. Not everything that you want is good for you. Not everything that feels bad is actually bad for you. 
Your feels are important but they not always enough data to go on. Make sure that you're acting on what's best for you and not just your most insistent feelings. 

More isn’t better; better is better, my love.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

You may feel stuck or stymied this week, and that’s no fun. Instead of trying to push your will to make things happen, take a step back, Aries. By understanding how your own actions helped to bring you here you can make use of your troubles. You may have been so caught up with your own feelings and needs that you’ve forgotten to collaborate with the people you care about. Be humble, and seek to promote greater balance in your life this week.

TAURUS

April 20-May 20

When you let your fears guide you, you’re investing your time and efforts into what you hope doesn’t happen, and this is unlikely to work out well for you. This week you’re on call to slow down enough to hear what your inner voice is saying, or you’ll find yourself on an old and ineffective autopilot. You’re entitled to set limits and follow through on them, even if it’s complicated or awkward for others. Honor what’s true for you with grace and perseverance, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s time to get out of your own way, Twin Star. You’re likely to have opportunities arise this week, but they’re likely to be easy come/easy go. Instead of obsessing over all of the possible details and ramifications, it’s wise to just take a risk and put yourself out there. Move forward in ways that have the potential to make you happier, even if you’re uncertain that they for sure will. Be guided by the truism of “nothing ventured, nothing gained,” sweet one.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Peace is a path to walk and not a place to reach. Finding peace is not like finding a park bench to sit on – it’s not a material thing. It’s hard to choose peace in times when your emotions are all over the place, but that’s exactly when you need it most. Strive to honor your feels without attaching to them this week. Breathe into your stresses until you reach a place of greater calm, and only then seek to do something about them.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

When you get too stressed or have overextended yourself, it’s only natural to feel out of sorts. Take time to clear out all the chatter from your mind and do some serious self-care. This week you may need to turn off your phone and get back into alignment with yourself, dear Leo. If you’ve gotten too wrapped up in the opinions and dramas of those around you lately, you’re also likely to have lost track of your own inner voice. Slow down and listen to your heart, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Sometimes fear is a wise teacher, and sometimes it's just insecurity. It’s wise for you to make your choices in spite of what worries you and not because of it. This is one of those times when you’ll get more mileage out of 'fake it till you make it' than if you wait till you feel ready. Promise yourself that you’ll be a loyal and good friend to yourself if things go sideways, Virgo. You don’t need to be perfect; just seek the most creative possibilities this week.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

There’s no limit to what you can do, there’s only limits to what you can do right now. Pace yourself not just through your actions but also through your process. Get present, Libra. You have so much going for you, and if you start from a place of gratitude for what you’ve got, you’ll have more energy to build toward the future of what you want to get. Change is coming, so do your best to create what you desire and not what you fear, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

There’s always the possibility that there’s something more or something better around the corner, but that kind of thinking can make you crazy. You’re on call to be present, even for the uncomfortable bits. This week, you’re ready to make some choices that you’ve been putting off because they’re kind of hard. Just make sure that you're pointing yourself in a creative and positive direction, and try not to worry too much over what others say or think. It’s time to do you, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You’re on call to let things develop, Sagittarius.  Try to exercise patience this week in the face of apparent roadblocks. It may seem like you’re not getting what you want right now, but that actually may not be true. Sometimes what seems like a limitation is really an opening – just not one that you thought you wanted. Try not to be so willful that you can’t see the potential in the situations around you. Lady Luck is on your side, even if she hasn’t signed off on your agenda.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

The hard part of being a Captain is that you don’t get to be vulnerable – you have to guide the ship and your crew. The good news I have for you is that you’re not a Captain, Cappy; you just feel like one. In your life you have choice; you can do the work of being vulnerable with people and situations, or you can be shut down. The truth is that you’re stronger and more whole when you allow yourself to have feelings, even the messy ones. Let people in this week.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

When you tell yourself that you’re better or worse than another person, you’ve totally gone off the blue line of your path, Aquarius. Where others are at has nothing to do with you. Your life, your choices, your achievements, and your failures are yours alone. This is a bad time to go comparing yourself or your progress to anyone else. Stay on track with your own motivations and actions, and let others do the same, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Bring intention to how you manage your life this week, Pisces. It’s easy to get caught up in your feels, especially when they’re complicated. Pay close attention to the difference between what you feel and how you’re behaving. You may be feeling nervous but acting with assurance or behaving nervously just because you’re tired. By bringing more awareness to the space that exists between your outside world and your inner world, you can more gracefully bridge the gap.

Astrology is all about cycles. Sometimes a single event strikes you down or holds you up, but it’s effects can be felt for a long time after. When the Solar Eclipse happened on August 21st, we saw a shift in culture and in consciousness that will take a long time to fully integrate, and in many ways, is still unfolding. In the meantime people and places burn – with the desire for freedom, for dominance, for peace, and for fame. Not all desires were created equal, so make sure that the things you are devoting your time and energy to are worthy. If you get what you want, will you be happier for it? If not, why are you working so hard? This week, the Moon is full in Aries on the 5th. This is an excellent time to get in touch with your will, and to make sure that it’s in alignment with your heart and soul. Aries is an independent fire sign, and you’re on call to make sure that you’re living in accordance with your true self. You can make demands of yourself or others, but that doesn’t tend to engender a good response. Work to bring about the conditions you wish to see this week. Honor your desires by stepping up and prioritizing them. Full Moons are always intense emotionally, but also they’re illuminating: pay close attention to what hurts, because that’s what needs your loving attention. When you’re attached to your vision of how things “should” be, you can’t be responsive to how they are. Be here now, for the messiness of it all. This Harvest Moon will help you rise to the occasion if you make the effort.

On the 7th-9th, Venus, the planet of values and personal finances, will form an activating square to rules-obsessed Saturn. This is a crappy day for saying ‘I love you’, or feeling particularly connected to other people at all. This is an excellent time to look at your own participation in your relationships. It’s on you to make sure that you’re acting in ways that reflect your values; TBH if you stoop to a fool’s level, you’re just making yourself a fool. In regards to money, this is an excellent time to get real. Look at your spending, and make sure that what comes in is enough to justify what goes out of your wallet. More spiritually speaking, this is an excellent time to make sure that your financial choices reflect your values; boycott companies that support legislation you don’t believe in, or shift your money into a credit union if your bank is invested in things that you don’t want to support. Money is power – use yours wisely, my love.

Finally, on the 8th-10th, the Sun will square compulsive Pluto. What you do on these days will work like a boomerang and come right back at you, so act with caution. Hell hath no fury like a Plutonian scorned; no matter how badly you want to be petty or cruel, this isn’t the time for such tactics. You may want to fight with others as a way to outlet your intense feels, but you should choose your battles very wisely. Remember who your enemies are, and don’t treat someone like they’re against you unless you’re certain that they are. This transit can be a powerful agent of reform, or you can dig a deeper hole for yourself. If you’re going to expend energy, do it in the name of healing and positive transformation.

March 21-April 19

Relationships are an excellent way for you to figure out who you are. This week, whether you like it or not, your identity will be reflected back to you through the mirror of your relationships, Aries. The kinds of people that you attract and the dynamics that you keep on finding yourself in are a reflection of you, and its your job to investigate what you’re being shown. The Full Moon only happens once a year in your sign and is always a good time to let go of what you’ve outgrown, my love.

April 20-May 20

As much as you love security, insecurity is an inevitable part of life. Feeling uncertain or ambiguous is not fun, but it is worth exploring. Feelings come and go, but their root causes stick around if you're not willing to do something about them. Explore what’s motivating your biggest fears this week so that you can finally make a change. You’re ready to live your life to the fullest, but first, something’s gotta give. The best way to let something new in is to first put your burden down, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

While you’re not in control of the hands of fate, you do have free will. This week, you’re likely to feel stuck or trapped by your circumstances, but that doesn’t mean you actually are; having meh options is not the same as having no options. Figure out your boundaries, AKA your wills and won’ts, and act from that place, Twin Star. if you don’t like the game, no one said you have to play.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

If you engage in struggles, you need to make sure that you believe in what you’re doing. Instead of letting others set the tone for your interactions, all you have to do is make sure that you’re acting in integrity with yourself. You have the right to stop engaging if that’s the best way to be true to yourself, Moonchild. If you let your base reactions inspire your actions this week, you may end up behaving in ways that give you short-term satisfaction and long-term drama.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Show all the way up, Leo. This week can bring you all kinds of opportunities and complications, so here’s the secret to getting the most out of it: when in doubt, honor your heart. When you love, you love big, and that’s part of your very best self. Don’t dilute you by investing in what you don’t actually love or like. It’s OK to prioritize, even if it means disappointing those that don’t make it to the top of your list. Just be kind as you do it, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You can be your best self and have all the greatest insights when you’re alone, but when you get around people, it’s a whole other set of challenges. Don’t confuse cerebral intelligence with emotional smarts, Virgo. This week, what’s going on in your head may not help you much with your feelings, especially with your relationships. The best way to honor your feels is by not justifying them or explaining them away. It’s so awkward being a person, so be patient with yourself.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

This week you’re gonna chose change or have your hand forced, Libra. Instead of trying to convince others to agree with you, try really listening to what they have to say. If it infuriates you or you simply don’t agree, it’s not your job to bend your will or to get anyone to change their mind. Accept differences between you and others so that you can then figure out what to do about them. Not all relationships are good for all things or for all times, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You can’t take back what you say, but the good news is that you don’t have to say anything, Scorpio. You need a break from people. There’s lots of intensity going on in the world, but if you can’t participate in a productive way, it’s OK to take a time-out. Honor your need for space and if you take it, use it wisely. You don’t need to know what’s next, but you do need to tend to the here and now. Keep self-care at the top of your priorities list this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Its easy to want things, but it’s vulnerable, too. This week is a challenge as you want all kinds of newness to enter your life but you’re not quite ready to let anything go. Do a deep dive into your worries, ‘Tarius. What you are scared of losing is not what it appears to be. Explore the contents of your fears so you can bring them to a place of healing, even if it seems easier to shove them into a corner and hope that they go away on their own (spoiler alert: they won’t).

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You can’t please all of the people al of the time, and trying to is a fools errand. Emotions are running high this week, and if you get too caught up in what you think other people are saying, thinking, or doing, you’ll lose track of what’s really happening for you. Stay centered within your own feels, and make sure your actions are in accord with your integrity. You’re not in control of much, but what you give your attention to is always at your own discretion, my love.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You can push your agenda forward and you may well be successful, but at what cost? This week you’re likely to be dealing with a rogue ego – either yours or someone else’s – and how you engage will have lasting results. Instead of reacting to other people’s worst parts, try to act from your very best self, my love. State your case, and let the chips fall where they may. You don’t need other people to validate you in order to know that you are awesome, Aquarius.

Feb. 19-March 20

Instead of worrying about the outcome, stay centered in your process, Pisces. This week will function like a doorway; you can walk through it or not, but you don’t get to know what’s on the other side unless you do. Prepare for the worst if you have to, but don’t panic. Action will speak louder than suffering, so pull up your Big Kid pants, and work to create or protect what you love. Your feelings can be all over the place, but your actions don’t need to be.

⚡️🌩

These are unstable times, and so many people are suffering. It’s so hard to see the pain of others without turning away, especially when you’re bombarded with news and images through your devices and social media. Turning away is the last thing you should do though. In order to have a strong spiritual life, it’s important to confront the realities of this world and to stay whole while doing so. This is a time where not only is there so much pain and suffering but also more documentation of it than ever before. If you find that your anxieties are too great to bear, remember to breathe. Gratitude is a good anxiety-killer, so start a practice of naming nine things that you’re grateful for every day, once a day. Another thing that helps is action; if you have resources to share locally or with those at a distance, please do! If you don’t, there are other ways to help. Prayer, energy work, and loving thoughts are valuable. Give a signal boost to causes that you believe in and voices that you are inspired by. Smile at strangers, show compassion and grace to people and situations you don’t understand, and when you need a break, take it.

This week is gonna be super intense! On the 28th, expansive Jupiter will sit opposite rebellious Uranus. This is the last pass of the transit that began on 12/26/16 and reoccurred on 3/2/17. The tension between these two planets is all about the spontaneous and rigid desire for freedom. This energy can be dogmatic, entitled, and oppressive – all in the name of liberty. It represents the drive to be unfettered by restraints and obligations, and if you’re not careful, it can compel you to act out in the name of freedom without concern for the costs.

This is an excellent time to break free of an oppressive situation or a dynamic you’ve outgrown. This energy will help you to boldly take risks – just make sure that they’re well-considered and won’t cost you more than they’re worth. This can be an explosive time for growth. Ask questions, explore, and be open to changing your mind.

On the same date, Pluto will go direct in the sign of Capricorn and this is a meaningful shift. Whatever you do, don’t lose track of your humanity, my love. You may need to dismantle rigid systems, unlearn broken principals, or stand up to structures that you once believed in. Do it, but make sure that you are guided by your inner light and not the shadow-side of others. Your soul is your most precious ally – guard it with your whole heart.

On the 29th, Mercury enters into indecisive Libra, and from the 28th-30th, compromising Venus opposes idealistic Neptune. Neptune and Venus govern your ideals and values respectively. This opposition is likely to illuminate whatever gaps exist between what you want to believe and what you actually believe. Pay special attention to your relationships around these dates; you are likely to have to assert some boundaries or have to respond to someone else’s. In the wise words of Diamond Dorris, “you have the right to say no. Never apologize for your decisions — explain yourself only at your discretion. Never feel pressured to defend your choices.” Honor your needs and let others do the same, my love.

March 21-April 19

Opportunity is a test of how well you know yourself, Aries. This week you’re likely to have plenty of chances to connect with people, but the quality of those intimacies is totally on you. The drive for attention or distraction is totally human, but is it the drive that you want to be making relationship decisions from? Temper romance with sustainability, and co-create dynamics in which you can be truly yourself with people you genuinely admire.

You’re changing, Taurus, and you can focus on what you stand to lose or what you stand to gain; either way it’s kinda scary. Don’t confuse your anxiety over the unknowable with pure instinct. The first is a reaction to fear, and the other comes from your deepest self. If you keep your eyes trained on the big-picture, it’ll be easier to tolerate your nervousness this week. You’re ready for change, and it’s totally worth it to confront your worries to get there.

If you’ve let your finances slip or fall totally out of control, they’re likely to catch up with you this week, especially at home, Twin Star. There’s no shame in struggle and striving, but what you’ve got to get on top of is your own choices. What you spend your resources on is a reflection of what you value (or what you fear). Check in with your relationship to money, and see if you can get it to better reflect the security and abundance that you want it to.

Pay attention to the role that anxiety is playing in your decision-making this week, Moonchild. It would be easy for you to try to run on empty, but it’ll only generate more disquiet for you. Tend to your basics before you strike out; that means feed and water your sweet, sweet body, and remember to breathe. You're on the verge of creating something truly lovely for yourself or the world around you – don’t do it at your own expense when you can do it with your whole self, my love.

You can’t always make sense of your feelings, Virgo. Your feelings may be inconvenient, difficult, or even painful, but they’re there for a reason. Instead of figuring your emotions out so that you can change or move beyond them, strive to be kind to yourself and interested in what they are about. One of the beautiful parts of our human condition is that we have messy, complicated feelings.

You’re likely to be in a very emotional state this week, and this will only make it more important for you to stay in the here and now.

Make sure that you don’t drive the car over the cliff, ‘Tarius. This week is all about chance, so take risks with clarity of intention. Your life is a gift, and you can do so much with it if you can avoid scattering your energies over too many things. Make choices based on your most earnestly held values instead of on how things look from the outside. Grab at opportunity that helps you to be more whole, and if you don’t know what that looks like, it’s time to get to investigating, my love.

If you allow yourself to get caught up in other people’s dramas because you believe in their cause, that’s one thing, but it’s a whole other to carry someone else’s torch for them. In the wise words of Paulo Coelho, “an immature person seeks revenge, an intelligent person moves on, allowing karma to take care of the problem.” Whether you believe in karma or not isn’t quite the point – don’t take poison and expect the other person to get sick. Invest in your wellness by committing your thoughts and actions to it.

Be careful what you say, Aquarius! The truth is ever so important but not always easy to communicate in a productive way. Breathe through all of your feelings so that you can figure out what part of the truth is most important to you this week. Your relationships are at a somewhat critical point, and you may need to take a bit of a stand, or sit down for some real talk. Speak the truth, but make sure that you’re saying what you want the other person to hear and not just what you wanna get off your chest.

When you let others put you on a pedestal, you are basically allowing them to not really know you, which is fine when it’s all bonbons and sweet days, but it’s not great when you need a friend. Love yourself enough to show up as your true self this week, Pisces. Allow for the messiness of what you really are to be loved by the messiness of the people you’re close to. Conversely, you may need to accept what other people tell you about themselves, even if it contradicts what you believe.

Healing from your past doesn’t mean being happy about everything that happened – for most of us, that’s simply not possible. Healing is being able to transmute the poisons you’ve ingested without making yourself sick over them. Healing doesn’t mean being perfect; it means that you can integrate your imperfections into the whole of what you are. This requires patience, empathy, and above all else, kindness. As we step into Libra season on the 22nd, the energy will be ripe for either coming together in the name of love or skating the surface with nicey-niceness; one will bring healing and the other will just put off the labor. The choice is always yours, Kittens.

On the 23rd-25th, ego-oriented Mars will sit opposite selfless Neptune. This energy can be demoralizing as Mars wants to get in there, get things done, and get validation for it’s efforts, while Neptune wants to live up in the clouds and notice subtle shifts in energy. Neptune’s vibe tends to be opposite and not very compatible with each other and can lead to demoralizing actions or false starts. This is a great time to get introspective and spiritual about how your ego is working well and where it may be out of alignment with your most deeply-held beliefs. When difficult transits happen, it’s not to torture you – it’s to help you become more whole. Sometimes a person needs to get their ass handed to them in order to learn a lesson. If you’re that person, remember to have compassion for yourself. If you’re dealing with someone else who’s actions are falling short of their potential, use discretion tempered with empathy.

If that weren't enough, from the 24th-26th, option-seeking Mercury will form a square to scarcity-minded Saturn. This transit will have you seeking hard and fast answers because of how uncomfortable it is to sit with the questions, and not because you’re totally ready for them. Remember this: there are usually more than two options. When you catch yourself in binary thinking, you’re most probably not seeing all possibilities. Explore your options instead of rushing to decisions this week. No matter how tempting it is to see things in terms of ‘right’ and ‘wrong,’ it’s important that you know this – you need to be in alignment with your values and principles, not just approved of by the people around you. Don’t get distracted by conventions that mute your soul, lovers.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and the trick is to not get too caught up in the game. What happens now is important, but what’s more important is how you handle it. The winds of fate are blowing like crazy this week, and the challenge for you is to keeping on investing in what you most want instead of getting caught up in distractions. If it doesn’t make you happy in practice, it’s probably not right for you, my love.

April 20-May 20

This week you’re on call to step into your emotional integrity. In every situation that emerges, don’t ask yourself, “what should I do?”, but instead, “what can I do and still be in alignment with myself?” Take risks that help you to be more whole, even when you fear the risks. If you’re willing to expand beyond where you’ve been, you’ll need to embrace the discomfort of growing pains over the comfort of what no longer serves you.

You don’t have all the information that you need to make an informed decision, Twin Star, and that’s gotta be frustrating. This week is all about staying present with uncertainty as more information is revealed to you. It may be tempting to want to jump to conclusions or hide under the covers and avoid the whole mess altogether, but neither is in your best interests. Keep your eyes on your long-term goals as you muddle through your options, my love.

June 22-July 22

Change is scary, especially when you don’t feel totally in control of it. This week, you’re on call to know the difference between a trigger and a trauma. Traumas are terrible things happening to you right here and now, and triggers are things that feel terrible because they bring up or exasperate your past traumas. They’re both a big deal, but they take different remedies. When your fears get activated, the time is right for bringing healing to that old wound, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

It’s not enough to be brave – you have to have heartfelt motivations guiding you so that you can sustain the effort. The way to follow through with the kind of self-care that life is requiring of you this week is by realigning with your deepest motivations. Don’t let your fears or the anxieties of the people around you stop you from putting yourself out there, Leo. Do your best without attachment to the outcome. This week is the time for big and small risks.

Just because you’re not getting what you want doesn’t mean that you’re not going to get what you need. Having clarity about what you want to see happen is excellent until you don’t get it, and then it can make things more complicated. Try to be interested in the things that are especially hard for you this week; what do they reflect about your past actions? How can you work with your current circumstances so as to get more value out of them? Shift your perspective, and everything changes with it, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You’re likely to be in a situation where you’re not getting what you want, and that’s no fun. The thing is, what you want is not necessarily all that you think it is. Things are complicated because you’re not in the most stable space. That doesn’t mean that they’re bad, but they’re not fully baked, and that’s pretty uncomfortable. You may have to let something or someone go in order to make room for what you really want this week.

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Reach out and touch someone! This week you’ll get more peace of mind by connecting with others than by hiding in your hidey-hole (every Scorpio’s got one!) and obsessing over whatever’s got you down. Seek meaningful connections with people that you can truly be yourself with. You’ve been torn up lately, and it’s time to let some light in. In the words of Cesar Chavez, "you are never strong enough that you don't need help"; embrace the strength in vulnerability.

Safety without joy is an empty room to be in. Your fears are likely to bump up against your hopes for the future as you struggle to see what’s real versus what’s imagined. Things are confusing now, but logic isn’t the best path to follow out of your uncertainty and ambiguities. Don’t let yourself get so caught up with your worries that you lose perspective; your life is requiring more heart a little less head from you, ‘Tarius. Stay present and honor your feels this week.

Having fearful expectations and seeing the glass as half-empty is easy – it doesn’t challenge your worldview or take much effort. Now is the time to test your attitudes and try some positive thinking. Dare to focus your assumptions and thoughts on your greatest hopes, and avoid the impulse to give much reinforcement to the negative. Things are changing, and you get to be part of the solution or a part of the problems; the choice is yours, Cappy.

You can push your way through just about anything, but that won’t make it right for you. This week you’re in a delicate place with your ego; it needs to be strong enough for you to move ahead, but when it’s not acting in concert with your higher needs, it can get you in trouble. Notice when you’re feeling defensive, and take the time to ask what you really need to defend yourself from. Enact your destiny instead of reacting to it, Aquarius.

Feb. 19-March 20

You can’t push others into being better or even different people than they are. This week you may need to accept the truth that you’re being shown by others, even though you’d rather believe something that you think is better. It’s lovely to see the best in people, but it’s not wise to ignore evidence. Acceptance isn’t consent or an endorsement; it’s simply awareness. Bring light to the truth – even hard truths – and your whole life will light up for you, Pisces.

You feeling it yet? On Tuesday the 12th, the vibrant Sun formed a square to Captain Buzzkill itself, Saturn. This transit will be felt until the 14th, and it’s not super fun. Saturn has a way of making things feel heavy and making you feel overwhelmed by everything that you need to do. This is the wrong time to shirk your responsibilities or hide from the world because Saturn is all about the responsibilities you have towards yourself, the people or situations in your life, and also to the community at large. This may feel like a depressing time, but there’s a bigger picture to hold on to – it’s that you matter. What you do and how you do it count to the people around you as much as for your own welfare. So stay connected! If you feel crappy, reach out to people you like and trust to get some perspective or support. The antidote for Saturn’s sense of scarcity is gratitude, so make a mental list of what you are thankful for. Remind yourself what you’re working towards, or use the energy of this week to adjust your goals.

On the 14th-16th, security-oriented Venus is forming a sextile to freedom-seeking Jupiter, and on the 16th- 18th it will trine independent Uranus. This energy can give us a much needed break from the heaviness – just make sure not to blow your money trying to buy some happy during these transits! You can enjoy some lovely times in your relationships around now, so this is another vote for staying connected. If you’ve lost track of meaning and have been feeling at a loss, this is a great time to realign with your values and empower yourself to keep on going. Unfortunately, from the 14th-16th, processy Mercury will sit on top of irritable Mars, and the results may make you defensive. Don’t blurt out everything that’s on your mind – first make sure that your thoughts are aligned with your values, or all you’ll end up doing is stirring the pot.

Finally we have another lunar event this week – this time it’s a New Moon in Virgo on September 19th. Typically this would be a fertile time for new perspectives and a fresh take on things, but there’s a complication: it’s Virgo’s ruling planet, Mercury, again. From the 18th-20th it will be sitting opposite to anxiety-producing Neptune. This transit can make you unsure of what’s real and what’s an illusion, which can really get in the way of your ability to clearly manifest with the New Moon. Try not to take on or try to juggle too much around this time, and if it can’t be avoided, call in reinforcements. This is a time to explore potential without attachments. You’re likely to have to embody your boundaries in some interpersonal dynamic, so stay on the lookout for ways to take good care of yourself. It’s unrealistic to expect anyone to honor your limits and needs if you’re not doing it; be patient with yourself and others, this week.

You don’t have to be in control in order to get right with yourself, Aries. Things are complicated, and the best way to handle it is by getting real. Anxiety will make you feel like you’re falling apart and that the only way to hold yourself together is to grab hold of something outside of you. The trouble with this is that you’re not likely to hold on to the right thing when you feel desperate. Get centered, and align with your truest motivations and not just your reactions this week.

‘What you resist shall persist.’ There’s no escaping change, there’s only ignoring the signs. It’s OK to be scared of what you don’t yet understand, but just because you don’t have clarity now doesn’t mean that whatever is around the corner is bad. Instead of fighting the tide, try to go where the flow of it takes you, Taurus. If you stay grounded around the things you are doing, you’ll be better able to understand what your problems are trying to show you about your life.

When you struggle against your reality, it only makes things more uncomfortable for you. This week you’re wrestling with some heavy themes, but don’t let that stop you from staying present with the feelings that come up. You’re not actually stuck, Twin Star – you’re just not seizing your options. Instead of worrying over what might go wrong, start investing your time and actions into the things that you want to go right. The only way to fail is to not try, my love.

If you’ve been driving yourself too hard, then you’ll find that you’re running on empty this week. It’s important that you prioritize, Moonchild, and that may mean that you have to let some things go. Realign yourself with what truly matters so you can see both what you need in order to be happy and also what you can put on hold. It’s time for you to seize your fate in both hands and mold it, even if it takes a few tries to get it right.

This is not the time to make compromises that compromise you, Leo. It’s easy to brazenly take a stand against things, but what are you for? Embody healthy boundaries with yourself in efforts to model them for others. This will have to come from a clear place of self-knowledge. You don’t need to have things go perfectly in order for you to be happy with yourself, but you totally need to be authentic to who you are. Invest in getting to know yourself this week, my love.

Be on the lookout for power struggles in your relationships. While fighting isn’t on its own a bad or a good thing, it’s important that you know what you’re fighting for, Virgo. Choose your battles wisely instead of impulsively. You may really want to get something off your chest, but that doesn’t mean you should say it to another living person. Sit on your feels for a few hours if you can. Don't try to win at relationships; seek happiness or peace, not victory, my love.

It’s really hard to let go. Even if you know in your heart of hearts that it’s time, the what-if's and their many possible outcomes can make you crazy. This week you don’t need to be certain of how you’re gonna get where you want to be, but you do need to own whatever compromises you’ve made and what’s become of them. You’re on call to honor your feels and make changes that reflect what’s true for you and not just what’s going to be immediately easiest to pull off.

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You can change your life as much as you like, but if you yourself don’t change, nothing will stick. This week it will be easy to obsess on external conditions and what’s wrong with them, but it would be missing the point. What other people are or aren’t doing isn’t really your problem. What you consent to participating in is the embodiment of your own boundaries, Scorpio. If you don’t like the game, it’s on you not to play, my love.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You’ve got this, ‘Tarius. There’s so much chaos in the world at large right now, as well as within your smaller personal world, and it has everyone on edge. You don’t need to feel fantastic or even optimistic in order to make a difference though. Find your center of strength, and act from that place. This week’s New Moon is excellent for you to start something new, whether it’s a change in attitude, a shift in behavior, or something more radical. Honor your potential, not your fears!

Which of your relationships and commitments make you feel happy? What you feed will grow, so make sure you’re feeding the right parts of your life. You have so much potential for success; just make sure you’re investing in the right things.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

It's too much sometimes. This week your feels are likely to be on overload, and it may seem like there’s very little you can do about it. You don’t need a crystal ball, and you don’t need answers Aquarius. What you need is courage. It’s time to confront the problem areas of your life with heart and grace – not to have a perfect plan. Life is illogical and dumb sometimes, so finding the smartest answers doesn’t necessarily make you safer, and that’s OK.

If you don’t trust your own feels, life gets pretty chaotic, pretty quickly. This week will challenge you to move slowly enough through your reactions to get to the center of your true feelings; this may require you to get past your inner chatter and slow things down. You run the risk of getting caught up in defensive reactions that lead to power struggles that are as confusing as they are upsetting. Know yourself well enough to know where you need to stand up and when it’s time to sit back down.

So… last week I forgot to tell you something really important (classic Mercury Rx blunder; --I’m so grateful that it’s finally over!). On September 1st Mercury Retrograded back to the degree of the Solar Eclipse on the 21st and will stay there until the 9th. This transit brings up some pretty intense feelings as the issues that got triggered by the Eclipse crystallize more clearly in your mind (Mercury). This energy is infuriating, energizing, and triggering at worst, and at best, it's revealing, confrontational (not all confrontation is bad!), and generative. Strive to be interested in your feelings and relationships. Mercury is at it’s best when it’s exploring, so resist the urge to jump to conclusions at this time.

This week, the big news is the Full Moon in mystical Pisces on the 6th. Pisces is a sign that knows about the interconnectedness of all things, and this can be a powerful gift or burden. Full Moons mark the end of an emotional cycle, and this cycle has been a biggie for most people personally, and most certainly for the world as a whole. 

So let’s get spiritual! Wanna know what the point of life is? It's really simple. It's love. Wanna know what it's biggest enemy is? It's fear, in all its crappy forms. 

There are two kinds of love. There's Personal Love -- you love your fam, your sweetie, your cat. This is the kind of love that is familiar and doesn't much challenge your world view. Then there's Impersonal Love - loving all the cats, all the suffering, or all the people in your social media feed that you've never met IRL. This kind of loving gets to thrive without the messiness of intimacy.

Generally, people are better at one or the other. And that's okay! But being a good friend doesn't entitle you to be a dick to people who you don’t know, any more than championing the rights of strangers entitles you to be a jerk to your fam. Being good at one form of love doesn't absolve you of needing to practice at the other. Love is a muscle that needs practice so that it can get stronger.

Show up for love in all its forms, especially when it's not convenient or easy. Fear will tell you a million reasons not to, and it can be confusing; fear will tell you the sky is falling, but it will also tell you not to play in traffic. How’s a person to know when to trust it and when not to?

Lanyadoo’s Pro Tips for Decoding Fear

Feeling scared is awful, and it’s a very human response to recoil from it. The trouble is that you’ve got to stay with the feels, or you’re abandoning yourself in your time of need. 

Feel your feelings

Locate them in your body

Breathe into your feelings. 

Don’t chase the thoughts!

When you’re in a state of fear is not the time to figure things out if you can help it. 

Just love yourself enough to stay with the feels. Show yourself kindness, and when you can’t do that, forgive yourself.

👉🏾Choosing love requires courage; learn to sit with your fears so you can know if they're wise counsel or b$llsh;t. 

The world needs your best self now more than ever, my love. Show up through it all this week.

You get what you put out there, and sometimes that’s a mixed bag. This week your desire to be recognized is battling with your desire to be left alone, and it’s kinda hard to have both at once. The ego is a tricky thing; it tells you you’re the best, or it tells you you’re the worst. When you have too much self-obsession, you lose sight of what’s truly right. Take a step back and develop largess of spirit so that your actions and goals better reflect your truth, Aries.

⚠️

It’s been a lot lately. In the wake of the Eclipse, everything is all shook up and fertile, which can make things feel extra chaotic, magical, or scary, depending on where you look. Happily, this Mercury Retrograde is just about over – its last day is on the 5th.

The trick is to not try to run before you can walk. From the 1st through the 4th of September, we have some pretty exciting transits happening, but I should warn you – not all that glitters is gold. When you want to see something, you seek it, even if you do this subconsciously. Be on the lookout for idealistic thinking, and be weary of your desire to jump to conclusions. First we’ll have go-getter Mars form a butterfly kiss (that’s a Trine in Lanyadoo-speak) to radical Uranus. This marks an opening and a powerful shift that can yield creative potential. The trouble is that this transit is happening in concert with a bunch of other, less reliable astrology, and that means that if you’re not careful, anything can come through this doorway. Clarify your intentions and own your choices. If you’re going to birth a thing, make it be beautiful and true. Wasting this energy on pettiness is a bigger miss than you might think it is.

On the 2nd-4th, inquisitive Mercury will sit on top of more-than-sometimes-selfish Mars. If you’re not careful, this transit can rob you of your objectivity and lead you down a pretty defensive path. Don’t allow yourself to be goaded into BS because the S is likely to stick to you. The best use of this energy is to better understand your own ego drives. Dig deep into your motivations, and make sure you’re not defending something you need to let go of. If you have to be brave, this transit will give you the push to do it. It’s OK to start something in this period, but you’re likely to have the most success with plans that you vetted before this week.

By the 3rd-5th, things get weird as the bright-light Sun sits opposite dark and foggy Neptune. The effects of this are complicated and make the energy before and after it a little hard to predict. This opposition can produce confusion, anxiety, disillusionment, and false starts. It can also mark a couple of days when you feel sleepy and lowkey depressed; if that’s the case, don’t worry about it as it’ll pass quickly. Fortify your bod and mind with solid self-care, and carry on.

The real risk here is dogma. Wars are started, torches are lit, and hearts are broken over firmly held beliefs that the feeler feels spiritually entitled to. No matter how connected you feel to a purpose larger than you, this is not the time to abandon common sense and empathy. Having boundaries, fighting, and other necessities can be executed with cruelty or compassion; make sure you’re not acting as though your emotions or connection to the Divine are any more or less important than anyone else’s.

We’re all family, and we’re all in this together. Strengthen the whole and you strengthen its parts.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

It’s time, Aries. You’re changing, and your potential is great. The problem is that if you bring your old ways with you, you’ll only succeed in shifting the way things look on the surface instead of how they really are. Having big feels is an undeniable part of big transitions, so be patient with yourself if you’re kinda freaking out this week. You’ll need courage to follow through, but if you’re not stepping out of your comfort zone, you’re probably not doing it right, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

When you’re stressing, it’s hard to have perspective. This week you need to take a gentle step back from your concerns in order to better deal with them, Taurus. You’re ready to make some changes, but if you’re not thoughtful about what they look like, you’ll end up creating chaos in the very dynamics you’re trying to make sustainable. Slow down and reassess your attitudes and your situation. This will allow you to make sure you’re on the right path before you commit yourself to it.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

You know what you want, but you don’t know if you can get it, and that’s an uncomfortable place to be. You run the risk of vacillating between big confidence and small thinking this week, and it’s no fun. The first step in front of you is to clarify your big picture goals. Once that’s done, dial back the things you need to do to get to that point. You can’t have it all right away, but you can have it all if you’re willing to let it come to you in pieces, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

A meaningful aspect of your life is gonna need your bravery, so show up for the good, the bad, and the ugly this week. It’s not the time to wait for the absence of fear; it’s time to step into your fears and better understand what they’re trying to tell you. If you take your anxieties too literally this week, you’ll end up way off track. Breathe into them, Moonchild. Show yourself compassion for your splintered parts because that kind of kindness will help you become a more united and whole person.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

If you’re being true to yourself, you may have to disappoint some people some of the time. This week you’re unlikely to want to be alone, but you kinda need to be, Leo. If you’ve gotten too wound up lately or are simply attached to getting a certain outcome regardless of the process, it’s time for a time out. Realign with your priorities and, more intimately, who you are at your essence. Who you are in tumultuous times says a great deal about your character, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

It’s time to take a real pause, Virgo. If you’re willing to confront the truth, you’ll see that you’ve lost your way. Luckily you’re just a smidge off the blue line of your map app. Sadly, you’re so caught up in what you think you’re supposed to do that it feels like an impossible course correction – even though it’s not. Change is an inevitable part of life, especially if you want to grow. Empower yourself by considering all your options, even if some of them feel scary to consider right now.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Just because you can’t see what’s next doesn’t mean that you have anything to worry about. What I have to say may be confusing; you need to be strong, Libra, and have confidence that you can pull off your vision. At the same time, you’re on call to release your attachments; they’re getting in the way of your ability to go with the flow. The upshot? Have the strength of character to be changed by what comes to you as you go for your dreams.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

If you don’t believe in yourself, you’re kinda screwed. No one is confident all of the time, but you need to be able to separate out all of your anxious mind-chatter from your intuition and inner wisdom. This week is a great one to get into meditation or step up your mindfulness game. Remember to do the little things like breathe, drink enough water, and sleep enough so that you have access to your most reliable inner resources. Finding peace is an inside job.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You don’t need to figure it out, Sagittarius. If you’re upset and don’t know what to do, take the space you need and do nothing. There’s a big shift in energy this week, and if you allow yourself to get caught up in your feelings and blindly react, you run the risk of making mountains out of molehills, my love. Don’t rush so impetuously to find the answers that you ignore the feelings that are getting kicked up within you. Act with integrity, not out of impulse alone, my love.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you’re too willful, you won’t get what you want – you’ll get what you’re most scared of. This week you may find yourself having some really good luck, but it may be easy come, easy go. Your best move is to be careful about what you wish for. Distill what you think you want into its most essential bits, so when opportunity knocks, you have a way of evaluating whether it’s a shiny bobble or as valuable as 24K gold. Seek the feeling, not the thing for once, Cappy my love.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You don’t need to posses a thing in order to understand it, and you don’t need to understand a thing in order to value it. This week your willingness to show up is required. You can go through the motions, but if you strive to be emotionally present, you’ll find that you organically make connections that you’ve been trying to force. If you’re willing to grow beyond where you’ve been, you can gracefully move leaps and bounds ahead, Aquarius.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

When you get pushed around, it’s easy to want to deflate, but that’s the exact opposite of what you should do. Trust yourself, Pisces. Rely on your instincts and have the confidence to follow through with what they tell you. Around mid-week you may need to take a break from everything and commit to some good old-fashioned self-care. Don’t pressure yourself to be anywhere other than where you are; do what you need to do to be right with yourself, sweet one.

🔮

This week kicks off with an upsetting square between diplomatic Venus and iconoclastic Uranus from the 23rd through the 25th. Venus governs your values, so when you have relationships that don’t reflect what you believe in, you end up feeling out of whack.

This energy can bring about serious upsets in your love life, when either what you want abruptly changes or people begin acting in ways that create interpersonal upsets. Instead of seeking to make your relationships stable, first dig a little deeper. Is freedom more important than stability? If you get what you want, will it bring you happiness? This is the time to show all the way up for your friendships, your love life, and for yourself. Make connections that help you get more free, not just give you more of the same, my love.  

This is also an excellent time for you to get more authentically aligned with what you value. Uranus is motivated by humanitarian principals, and Venus represents the people that you tangibly care for (aka your IRL fam).  We are immediately post-eclipse, but that doesn’t mean that the energy of this major astrological event is over. As the events unfold, you’re on call to embody your values now more than ever. Show up for the situations, people, and commitments that you believe in, and be willing to be changed by them.

On the 25th through the 27th, the Sun will line up with Mercury Retrograde in Virgo. This transit wants you to look inside yourself. This is a great time to do a deep dive into you and convene with your Dear Diary.

On the 27th, freedom-loving Jupiter forms a sextile to stabilizing Saturn. You can expect more big shifts in your world that will create staying power with the things you’re growing. Make the most of the opportunity, and use this week as a time to realign your intention and recommit to whatever it is that you want for yourself, your relationships, and your goals. Lend your specialness to the world, my love.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Don’t allow the things you fear most to guide you, Aries. Gratitude is an anxiety buster and can also give you some much needed perspective. When you get overwhelmed this week, make a list of the things you have to be grateful for. If you can start out from a place of abundance, or at least from some neutral footing, you’ll see more options available to you. Allow yourself to be guided by the best within you instead of the most fearful, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

When you’re in a state of serious stress, you tend to hold your breath. When you hold your breath, your body doesn’t get the oxygen it needs. This can lead to increased heart rate and survivalist thinking instead of metered analysis. Take a minute to breathe before you seek solutions, Taurus. If you can take a step away from what’s stressing you out for long enough to tend to yourself, you’ll be able to better make sense of your head and your heart.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

You’ve got to pick a lane, Twin Star. You can have many goals and ideas, but in order to be effective with anything, you have to confront your FOMOS and make some choices. Pick up to three things that you can commit to doing this week to further your goals, and stick to them. Don’t let yourself get distracted because you’ll then have to circle back and start from scratch. It’s time to make a decision, and follow it up with strategy, my friend.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Your relationships are very important, but they’re not more important than anything else. The folks you’re close to are going through their feels in the ways that they do; this is not the time to divine their needs or fix their pain. When in doubt, have direct and open conversations, Moonchild. In the wise words of Brene Brown, “you’re not a jackass whisperer.” It’s not your job, or even your right, to guess at or manage other people’s feels. Show up and collaborate with your people this week.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. This week you’re capable of doing so much, but you run the risk of exhausting all of your energy. Pace yourself enough so that you can stay present and have enough left over. This isn’t a sprint; the issues you’ve been dealing with require you to stay in the marathon for some time to come. Love yourself enough to know what you can handle without compromising your much-needed self-care, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Power struggles are only a bad thing when the fight is for power for it’s own sake. There is valor in in stepping up and standing firm for what you believe in, but make sure you keep your eyes trained on the forest so that you don’t lose perspective (and time and energy) inspecting the trees. If you’re going to fight, make sure it’s for something; this week, it looks like you need to be standing up for more freedom, or you’ll end up exhausted and further from your truth.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

It’s hard to change under the best of circumstances, but when things are rough – or worse, when you’re rough on yourself – change is even harder to pull off. You’re in a difficult position, Libra; you have clarity about what you want to do but not the confidence to pull it off. It’s time for some good, old-fashioned plan making! Don’t worry about what other people are doing or how they’re doing it. Put one foot in front of the other so you can get where you want to be.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

It’s easy to feel connected to old relationships or situations by reliving them or not allowing yourself to truly put them down. The trouble with this is that you can’t truly be free if you’re attached to your past, Scorpio. It takes great courage to really let go, and that’s exactly what’s required of you now. You’re moving towards a whole new phase of your life, but if you bring your old attitudes, hang-ups, and hurts with you, you’ll end up right here all over again. Move on, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It’s OK to be sad, it’s part of life. This week you may feel stuck in some hard feels, but as much as it hurts, it’s not all bad. Your capacity for emotion is a strength, and tolerating vulnerability is part of being able to see the whole truth to a situation. You don’t need to do anything; you only need to be where you’re at. Strive to be a good friend to yourself through whatever you’re going through so that you come out the other side whole, Sagittarius.

Even if you’re doing the “right thing,” you may feel wrong about it. The trick is to do the right thing for you, in the right time, and with consideration for your situation. It’s hard, but it’s well worth it, Cappy Mon Capitan. If you’ve take on more than you can emotionally handle recently, you’re likely to feel insecure and drained this week. Reign yourself in and realign with your priorities so that you can stay on your path in the most true way for you.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

People have an annoying way of not doing what you want them to do. Then again, you can have an annoying way of only communicating what you want them to do after you’re already lowkey annoyed. This week it’s on you to speak up before you’re upset. If you can’t do that, it’s OK, but it’s also important that you take ownership for not being clear. Being intimate takes work; don’t expect your loved ones to be mind readers, Aquarius.

Feb. 19-March 20

You may feel like there’s no one to lean on this week, and that kinda blows. The good news is that this is temporary, and there’s a bigger picture to why you feel so on your own; it’s time. You’ve been working really hard on yourself, and now it’s kinda caught up with you. It’s time to pull out all the wisdom and self-care tools that you’ve acquired and get to work. You’re not stuck, and you’re not without options. Exercise your free will to get more free, my love.

🔮

The Solar Eclipse is called the Great American Eclipse for a reason – we in the USA are experiencing this Eclipse extra powerfully as it will be seen across the whole Union. On August 21st we have a Full Solar Eclipse at 11:30am PST. A Solar Eclipse is an extra powerful New Moon, and this one is hitting the 29th degree of Leo. Your reality is likely to change up on you, and the energy is likely to have you jumpy, quick to react, and totally overwhelmed.

It’s easy to talk about the Eclipses like they are singular events, but really they are part of a much larger process. Their energies build up over time and then reveal themselves for months to years after the actual event. Some people will experience big, ground-shaking stuff this week, but many of us will be confronted by heartfelt themes that spark intense feels and deep transformations over a longer period of time. It’s important to note that this isn’t just happening to you though; this is a global event. Our collective shadow is getting triggered, and that means that the world is one big, scary Trigger Tape Parade. So be patient and kind. And keep your eyes on your own homework. This isn’t the time for obsessing on what others should or shouldn’t be doing. Be the change you want to see in your relationships, your psyche, and in the world.

This Eclipse is happening in the sign of Leo, and this energy is far from delicate; it’s fierce. It’s not passive, it’s the very force of creation. It’s time to be healed by confronting your shadow, or you’ll risk having a piece of yourself destroyed by indulging it. Move in and move on, or get more deeply entrenched in the stuff that’s holding you back.

This Eclipse may have you feeling like you’re all alone with whatever you’re going through. You may feel like you don’t know yourself or the people around you. It’s easy to feel alone in the dark, but that doesn’t mean you are. Your shadow isn’t a bad place to be, even if it’s frightening. All Light casts a shadow; in fact, the brighter your light, the deeper your shadow. Now’s the time to step into your shadow and learn of it’s contents.

You are not alone and you are not without options, but know this: what you’ve been indulging in for the sake of your ego will only get you in trouble with your heart, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Sometimes the pain of healing is worse than the hurt of staying stuck, but don’t resist discomfort just because it feels bad. Resist hate, fear, and oppression. Resist the attitudes, conditions, actions, and internal patterns that you know aren’t helping you to heal. Trust me, it’s the surest way out of whatever’s got you wrapped up.

This Eclipse is asking us to investigate our shadow on the collective level as well. The shame of genocide, slavery, the KKK, & institutionalized racism are the shadow of the USA. We as a nation cannot look away or turn our backs on what’s happened in our history or what’s happening in the here and now.

It’s not possible to be a spiritual person and do nothing, say nothing, and feel nothing about the emboldened rise of the White Supremacists (in all of their incarnations) in the world today. They are wrong in every possible way, and it is wrong to be silent while they take their stand. Stand against hatred and oppression in all of its forms, and stand on the right side of history, my loves.

Stand with people of colour. 

Stand with Jews.

Stand with Muslims.

Stand with Immigrants. 

Stand with Queers.

Stand with Women.

Stand with the poor and the houseless.

Stand with those with different abilities.

Stand with the old, the sick, and the weary.

Stand up for love.

Sit with your shadow, and own the ways in which you've benefited from the oppression of others. 
Look inside yourself and use love – the most powerful force of creation! – to motivate change. Start with yourself and work with others, especially those who come from different backgrounds and have different experiences from you. Shame grows alone in the dark; step into the light, and let's heal our souls together. 
Be a part of the solution. 
REMEMBER: WE OUTNUMBER THEM

❤️💯

You can be healed by love, or you can let it destroy you. When the people and things you love don’t make your life a more healthy and happy place to be in, something’s wrong, Aries. This week it’s time to heal or be healed. Own up to your self-destructive patterns and choices because they belong to you alone, and you alone can transform them. Practice radical self-love by stepping into your shadow and showing it compassion, not entitlement.

Where you find home is deeply personal; it may be in your memories, with a person, a place, or on your couch eating bonbons. The thing that’s for sure is that your sense of belonging and home is getting triggered right now, Taurus. It would be easy to get overwhelmed and check out, or worse, freak out and obsess, but it wouldn’t be wise. This is the time to seek to free yourself from the harmful dynamics and attitudes of your past and step into a new light. You’ve got this.

There’s what’s possible, and there’s what’s easily possible, and just because you don’t have the latter, doesn’t mean you can’t have what you really want. This week you're likely to be wrestling with some demons that tell you that you’re not able to get what you want, but that isn’t true! Align yourself with the process of getting there, not the perfection you wish to achieve once you arrive. If you accept the next steps in front of you, you’ll get there in the exact right time, Twinny.

You may tell yourself that you care about puppies and rainbows, that they’re the most important things to you, but the proof is in the pudding, Moonchild. What you value is reflected in your actions, not in your thoughts alone. This week is set to trigger your values. Step into your ambiguities, your unintegrated bits, and your fears this week. The only way to heal it is to feel it. Strive to unify your choices with your convictions, my love.

July 23-Aug. 22

This week you’re on call to step intentionally into your darkest parts. This is not a performance, and what other people do or don’t think of your actions is not your concern. Look beneath the surface and better get to know yourself, so you can truly understand what’s been motivating your actions of late. To paraphrase the words of Nayyirah Waheed: if someone does not want you, it’s not the end of the world, but if you don’t want you, the world is nothing but endings.

There’s so much happening inside of you that you may need to put people on ice for a minute and just do you. The Eclipse is calling you to childhood issues, long-standing patterns, and other submerged content, and resistance is futile, my friend. Step with intention into your landmines, and then love yourself into safety. Your fears are compelling, but they’re not facts. Take emotional risks that allow you to be more whole and to be more here, my love.

Everyone around you is stressing, and that’s the kind of thing that really gets under your skin. This week you’re on call to have healthy boundaries with your friends. You can show up without taking on other people’s stuff or trying to fix problems that aren’t yours. Your relationships may need to change, but this doesn’t have to be a defensive move or a reaction to forces out of your control. Step up, Libra.

No matter how hard you try to get what you want, you’re unlikely to be happy if you want the wrong things, Scorpio. It’s time to get your ego and your heart on the same page, or you’ll feel split in two and all kinds of wrong. You have nothing to lose when you seek to live up to your hearts’ truth. This Eclipse is bringing up the shadow side of your conscious life goals; investigate it so you can create greater balance in your life, my love.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It’s not possible to be truly free when you’re also hampered by the past. This week you have a powerful opportunity to shed some old, self-imposed limitations that you’ve become far too used to, Sagittarius. Instead of avoiding your anxieties, this is the time to breathe right into them; embrace your fears when you would rather evade them altogether, and you’ll end up with more information about yourself and more options for how to next proceed. Win/win.

Whether you need to deepen your current relationships or build new ones, it’s time to step it up. The trick is to be willing to be vulnerable without any reassurance of things going the way you want them to. It’s far better to try and to fail then to never try at all. Don’t phone it in this week.

It may be you who needs to assert some boundaries and shift the landscape of your intimacies, and in that case, make sure to do it with compassion and patience. It’s clear mind, full heart, can't lose time.

Eclipse Season is all about a powerful flow of feels; last week we had a Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) in Aquarius, and on the 21st we will have a Full Solar Eclipse (New Moon) in Leo. The Leo/Aquarius energies have introduced a deep theme into our lives, that of Attention versus Intention. 

Leo is a fertile fire sign. What you feed this season will grow, whether you're devoting your attention to power struggles; vanity; fear; or the people, situations, and patterns that bring you joy. It'll be hot or maybe even burn your house down – what it won't do is chill. It wants to be fed attention, praise, and validation. In balance this can be a healthy thing, but out of balance, it's a hot mess.

Aquarius is a heady air sign. It's interested in the future and the very best way to get there. It's energies reflect humanitarian concerns, but it's not about personal justice as much as social justice. Aquarius wants equality and is willing to use any means to get it.  Out of balance this can mean dogma, coldness, and the drive for kindness without all the mess of having to deal kindly with people. In balance it's a freaking revolution that benefits the future of humanity. It's time to refine your intention. It’s time to create a future that's better than the present. 

Don’t strive to avoid problems because that won’t work. Just make sure your problems are creative and help you be a better version of yourself, instead of being destructive and keeping you stuck.

This week, feels are still on fire as we sit between the two Eclipses. On the 12th the planet of communications goes Retrograde until September 5th. This means that your devices and plans are likely to act wonky, so plan on having patience when the inevitable delays and mini dramas occur. The symbolism of the Retrograde during Eclipse season is especially interesting though; it’s a call to review, revise, and realign your attitudes, communication style, and even your friendships. This is meant to be an internal process, so don’t be so quick to find answers that you miss out on the process of going inward and taking authentic interest in what’s happening for you, for reals.

On the 14th-16th, diplomatic Venus will form an opposition to the planet that loves to destroy things and rebuild them later, Pluto. Oppositions have a funny way of getting projected out, so watch out for relationship dramas, and do your best not to stir the pot unnecessarily. You’re entitled to feel your feels as dramatically and passionately as you do; just don’t think that this entitles you to act out. Pluto’s drives can be ruthless, petty, and demanding – but you shouldn’t be! Be prepared to confront your ugly bits with compassion and strength. What you do and what you consent to are reflections of you; what others do or don’t do is them telling you who they are. Listen to it. Feel your feels, but strive to act in ways that reflect your integrity, not your situation, my love.

What you do with your time is your business, Aries, but this is not the time to waste it. You’ve pointed yourself in the right direction, but self-doubt and worry threaten to derail you. The good news is that you’re not supposed to have it all figured out or be perfect! The bad news is how it feels. As you expand into the person you want to be, you have to outgrow some things. Don’t assume the worst of change; find your strength in this time in-between certainties, my love.

You may feel you have the right to pop off on someone, but this week it’s wise to fight that urge. How you manage your ego is of the utmost importance. Whether you think that you’re the best and entitled to more than others or you think you’re the worst and entitled to less, you face the same problem – it’s the wrong kind of self-obsessing. Pick battles that reflect your values and don’t detract from your integrity, Taurus.

May 21-June 21

People are delicious and distracting and confusing and so very, very important to you. This week your relationships should be your top priority, Twin Star. You can’t control how other people feel or act, of course, but you can manage your own mouth and behavior so that your side of the road stays tidy. If you’ve been hiding yourself away from real intimacy, it’s “come out, come out, wherever you are” time. Be yourself, and count the fallout of that as a blessing.

June 22-July 22

This is a profound week for you, Moonchild. Your feels are extra intense, and you’re ready for things to change. If there are things in your interpersonal life that need addressing, this is the time to do it, as long as you make sure that you give the same latitude to others that you want for yourself. Don’t waste time figuring out if you have a right to your feelings – of course you do! Instead, focus on how to most honestly and kindly express them, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Just because you don’t know what comes next doesn’t mean that you have anything to worry about. You’re likely to feel rattled this week as your drive to be chill clashes with your needs. Be suspicious of your compulsions and defenses because they’re likely to be more about the past than the present, Leo. Seek a balanced union of your needs instead of a perfect solution, and it’ll help you get out of your way long enough for the unexpected to come in.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You don’t have to do anything. Seriously. You can quit your job, your friends; you can radically change the whole current version of your life if you want to. Stop telling yourself that you’re locked into this or that, Virgo. You’re making choices, and those choices have a smorgasbord of consequences – some good and others not so much. Make choices that you believe will make you happy, even if they’re the harder ones to make. This is your life, and it’s on you to own it.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

This may be the end. Circumstances are pushing you to grow or feel the pain of trying to stay the same. Your homework is to get real about the role that fear has to play in your dreams and decision-making, Libra. The thing that’s for sure is that you can’t keep on going as you have been, but if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard to see that as a good thing. Honor your potential, not your worst-case scenarios this week, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Remember to breathe, Scorpio! There’s a meaningful difference between emotions and sense impressions, intuition and anxiety. The trouble is that though the differences are deep, they’re often very subtle. It’s important that you know yourself, even the parts of your psyche that are uncomfortable. Get grounded into the here and now so that you can notice if you’re reacting to something presently happening versus something tugging at your heart.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You shouldn’t need things to be fun in order to trust that they’re growing in the right direction. Sometimes the best things for you are hard. This week your head wants to direct your heart, but your heart won’t listen. You have to take a stand, but if all you’re doing is trying to prove a point or get your way, you’ll end up with a power struggle that leads to more problems. Don’t rush to find a solution before you figure out the contents of your own heart, my love.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Having a healthy ego means knowing when to step up and when to stand down. You run the risk of obsessing on the one thing that’s really bad, and ignoring all the good, Cappy. You are hereby permitted to feel as terrible as you like about whatever tragedy you are dealing with but only if you balance it with the positive. This week, once a day (or every time you get overwhelmed), commit to listing seven things that you are grateful for.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Anxiety sucks. This week your work is to put all of your self-care tools to work and really try. I don’t mean that you should overcome your restless thoughts or unsettled feelings – that’d be nice, of course, but a wasted opportunity. Now’s the time to cherish your feelings enough that you actually investigate them, Aquarius. It’s only with self-understanding that you can effectively work with your blocks and turn them into a ladder.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

You don’t have to take on anyone else’s stuff, Pisces. Your loved ones, acquaintances, and neighbors are all entitled to their own feelings, and you don’t have to do a thing about it. Be on the lookout for when you manage other people’s feels as a way to take care of yourself instead of when it’s truly appropriate. You don’t need to understand everyone’s experience or walk around with a spiritual doctor’s bag. Just show up for your commitments, and let the rest go this week.
