🌈

After so many heavy vibes last week, this one kicks off with a lot of positive energy – just don’t let it get to your head, Kittens!

On the 21st we have inquisitive Mercury sitting on top of the Sun in emo Cancer. This is a great time to connect with others, cyber-stalk your crush, and get real with your Dear Diary. It’s not so much of a good time for having objective perspective as everything will feel super personal. This transit will last until the New Moon in Cancer happens on the 23rd.

The Moon rules Cancer, and the one time of year when La Luna is in it’s fav sign is a ripe time for all matters related to the heart. This one is going to be especially emo because at the same time, we have relationship-minded Venus trining obsessive Pluto and selfish Mars forming a square to expansive Jupiter. This combo of energies is going to place pressure on us to know what we’re showing up for. The New Moon is a chance to dive into your internal depths and nurture yourself, especially if you’ve been feeling burnt out or pulled in too many directions. The act of self-reflection will be deepened by Venus’s intense meeting with Pluto; the potential here is to align with what you value and allow yourself to be transformed by it. The danger with Mars and Jupiter is that you can get so identified with the story you’re telling yourself that you miss what’s right in front of your face. So stay humble and present when looking at yourself, your relationships, and where you devote your energy.

From the 24th through the 26th, Mars will move into a sweet spot with generous Neptune. This will bring our attention to the Universal. This may mean that you feel called to your spiritual practice, to social justice issues, or to healing something that needs your unique attention. On it’s own, this transit can pass without much notice, but this week it’s part of a larger concert of transits that are pushing us to see the truth of what might be nuanced or confusing situations. On the 26-28th, detail-oriented Mercury will square truth-seeking Jupiter and also form a trine to the unconditional lover, Neptune. Seek the truth without jumping to conclusions. Speak with kindness without denigrating your message into nicey-nice platitudes. We are in powerful times, and they demand vigorous honesty, emotional generosity, and above all, your undistracted presence. Show up, lovers. Amplify the truth and your receptivity to it!

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Your ability to cope is being tested, and while you’re totally capable of making the best of your situation, maybe you shouldn’t actually be doing that, Aries. It’s time to confront things and see them for what they really are, even if it’s not great. Beware that your escapist tendencies could fool you into believing that your instincts are false. You’re only able to improve the things you’re aware of, so prioritize following through on your hunches along with general self-reflection this week.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Take the time to catch up with yourself, Taurus. This week should provide some much needed respite from all the big changes you’ve been moving through. Use the New Moon on the 23rd as an opportunity to reflect on the last 30 days of your life – what you’ve accomplished and where you’re still striving. This is an especially fertile time for dealing with your day-to-day life, especially if you do so in efforts to nurture yourself. Adjust your attitude, and everything shifts with you.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

The key to happiness isn’t keeping busy – it’s keeping busy with things that bring you joy. This week you’re going to get glimpses of some ways you can have real and lasting happiness. Be open to inspiration, even if it seems intimidating to get there. You’re ready for change, and if you’re careful not to fall for shiny objects, you’re likely to create something truly golden. Believe in yourself, and prioritize the things and situations that make life feel good.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

The New Moon is in Cancer on the 23rd, and since it only falls in your sign but once a year, it’s a big, beautiful thing. Devote time to getting in touch with your innermost personal world this week. If you pay attention to yourself, you may find that you need to adjust parts of your lifestyle to better promote happiness or that you’ve been placing unnecessary pressures on yourself. It’s an extra potent time for enacting changes that promote a happy, healthy you, Moonchild, so don’t miss out.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

This is an excellent time for changes, but beware the trickiness of your ego! You may find yourself feeling restless and like the best way to change your life is to change the people around you, but spoiler alert: it’s not. Know that if the people you chose to spend time with suck, that’s more about your choices than about your right to improve them. Don’t fear the hard stuff – if anyone can tackle it, it’s you! Rely on that big, generous heart of yours, even when it comes to your own self, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Fear sucks. It’s the root of so many painful and destructive emotions, and this week it’s got you down. You’re not supposed to know the answers right now, Virgo. You don’t need to understand all the pieces, or even be able to see the path forward. What you need right now is a little patience. Change is scary, especially when it’s happening in uncertain ways. Honor your feelings without weaving a narrative to match them. Before you do anything else this week, take time to find some inner calm.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

The truth is that no matter how connected to others you are, we humans are all essentially alone with ourselves. Instead of attaching all your hopes and dreams to other people, make sure that you’re working on your relationship to your own self, Libra. This week may force you to rely on your own resources, and while you’d rather not, it’s really for your own good. Find meaning in the hard stuff; don’t be in such a rush to fix situations that aren’t broken, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Take time to have gratitude for all that you’ve got, Scorpio. Having real appreciation for your life does heaps of good for your cells, your unconscious thoughts, and ultimately your actions. You can’t know what will happen next in your life, but you can prepare for it by laying some solid foundations. This week is all about getting your emotional wellness sorted so that you can greet your life with open arms and make the most of where you’re at.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Your challenge this week is to let things develop at their own pace without knowing what’s around the corner. While it’s not the end of the world, you’re likely to be dealing with some kind of ending this week, and it’s uncomfortable. Try to see the big picture without filling in the details with a story that you don’t yet know is true. Your story is still being written; be here for that. The ways you act in times of stress tells reams about you, Sagittarius; that’s where the real scoop is.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Your sign isn’t known for creativity, but that doesn’t mean that you aren’t inventive in your own way. The trick for you is in finding meaning and importance through what you do. The time has come for you to step out of the shadows you’ve been hiding in and try something new. You don’t have to be chill, but you do need to be willing to be challenged outside of your comfort zone. If someone offers you something exciting but scary this week, hop on it, Cappy.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Repetitive thought is like prayer, and that kind of ritualistic thinking has power. If you let what you’re scared of dominate your thinking, it’ll stop you from taking chances, and you can’t be true to yourself living like that. This week, you’re on call to follow through with the stuff you’ve been putting off. You’ve been at a standstill, and it’s time for you to take some chances. Act with integrity, and you can’t go wrong, even if things don’t turn out exactly as you want them to, Aquarius.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

The changes that are happening in your life require you to confront your fears; there’s no two ways about it. The trouble with this is that it sucks, but the opportunity here is for you to grow past where you’ve ever been. The trick is to know the difference between a shiny object and true gold. They’re both real pretty, but only one will keep its luster. This week, devote your precious energy to the projects, people, and activities that will appreciate in value.

This week, the Sun leaves playful Gemini and enters into emo Cancer. Unfortunately, the astrological events leading us there are coming with some heavy vibes. From the 14-16th, the Sun will sit opposite taskmaster Saturn. This means that we’re meant to get real about something essential, and that can be a total boner killer. Confront and deal with reality as it is in the here and now, even if you wish things were different. When Saturn visits us, we’re meant to evaluate the appropriateness of our choices and actions. This transit favors hard work that requires concentration and effort, or alternatively it can make you feel so depleted that you don’t wanna do a damn thing. I like to think of Saturn as Mary Poppins – she’s a magical teacher who will help you through your Daddy issues if you just believe, and when the Sun is involved, you’re meant to believe in your sweet and salty self.

From the 17th-19th, we’ll be enjoying an energizing Sun sextile to Uranus and lowkey depressing opposition from Mercury to Saturn. Seek creative solutions to your problems, even if you feel trapped. If you're overwhelmed, remember to keep it simple and only solve one of the world’s problems at a time. Saturn favors well-laid plans, clarity of intention, and realistic assessments. Call in your most grounded allies this week, whether that’s a trusted friend, initiated gemstones, or your tried and true self-care rituals. When things feel bad that doesn’t always that mean they are bad; sometimes you need to feel it to heal it, bbs.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should, Aries. You’re totally capable of pushing yourself forward, but at what cost? Balance the drives of your ego against the needs of your higher self, this week. You’re on a solid path and can go far on it, but if you don’t feel right with yourself at the end of the day, you won’t be able to enjoy your successes. To make the most of this life, take time to smell the roses, luxuriate in the present moment, and be here now.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

What others think of you is not important, even though it totally is. So here’s what’s true: what people who don’t really know you think of you says more about them than it does about you. What people you have real relationships with think is more substantial. At the end of the day, you’re the one to impress. This week, you may be feeling yourself and then get stressed by opinions and gossip, but it’s totally not necessary as long as you’re keeping your side of the road clean.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s time to stand up, Twin Star. This week is all about taking responsibility for your commitments and owning your part. If you haven’t been keeping up with your friendships, you may be feeling lonely, but don’t convince yourself that it’s because no one likes you. See how your actions brought you to where you’re at, and you can see the path to change. If you’re feeling bad, here’s a pro tip to get you through: introspection, not guilt or blame, is the remedy to what ails you.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Don’t focus so much on the outcome that you miss out on the all-important path, Moonchild. When relationships change, there’s often a period of time when it’s unclear what will happen, and it’s easy to let that uncertainty get to you. Don’t let your fear of what may be incline you to think the worst! It’s not clear what will happen, and it doesn’t need to be because you don’t need your relationships to work out unless they’re truly right for you.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

If you’re not feeling right, it’s OK to take a break, Leo. If you’re being tested, it’s not meant to be about what you can handle but the choices you’re willing to make. You are basically feeding what you devote the bulk of your energy and time to, and that includes your stresses. If you’re trying to win but don’t know why, take a minute to figure it out, my love. If you’re not careful, you’ll end up burnt out and unhappy this week, so seek balance instead of completion.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

So many things can go wrong in a life, it’s hard to know what you’re supposed to do to ward off the worst of it. Do you work hard now and save your monies? Or do you take it easy, and focus on self-care? One thing is for sure, you won’t find the answer from the bottom of a pit, Virgo. When you’re stressing is not the time when you have the greatest perspective. Work on developing calm and figuring out life’s great riddles from there, even if it slows your progress down this week.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You can’t control how it goes; all you can do is give it your best, Libra. This week will challenge your desire to manipulate what isn’t yours to manage. Instead of struggling against what is, look at what you’re getting out of not accepting it. What you want isn’t wholly dependent on outside factors, no matter how much it feels like it. Focus on making a positive impact in your life, and avoid the impulse to obsess on the other stuff.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Your environment may be very chaotic, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be. This week you’re doing alright as people around you struggle and conditions decay. The trick is not to confuse your outsides and your insides. Being sensitive to your environment may make it easy for you to get egged on by something that you really know better than to be triggered by. Knowing when to advance versus when it’s time to hold back are markers of embodied wisdom that you should work toward.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

What’s the point of life? Is it to make money, build something, to find God, or to pet many cute puppies? In the wise words of Annabel Gat “The purpose of life is to find our purpose.” This week you're on the hook for your life choices in a big-picture sort of way. How you live, what you love, and what you prioritize make up a life, and that life is singularly your own. make sure that you're living in ways that reflect your truest desires and not your most compulsive FOMO.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You’ve got to let go, Cappy Mon Capitan, and one way or another you will. Life is changing all around you, and even if you insist on doing things in the same way, they will be different by context before too long. How you want to live is a question mark all around you these days, so here’s a pro tip to getting the answers: stop looking for them. Figure out how you want to live and not what you want to do. Your actions aren’t as important as the motives behind them, my love.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You can focus on what you’ve got to lose or what you have to gain, but that doesn’t change your feelings. It’s OK if your head is able to see the yes while your heart can’t get past the no. Life is messy, and if you can be here for it all, you will grow in the most beautiful and unexpected ways, Aquarius. So don’t explain away your emotions or attempt to fix what you think is broken. Be interested enough in your own experiences that you stay present and agenda-free this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

If you’ve been putting up with annoyances at home, you may be just about ready to pop, and when a Pisces gets mad, it ain’t pretty. You have just as much of a right as anyone to assert boundaries, but you are tasked with owning your feels and needs before you unceremoniously drop them at your loved one’s feet. Say your piece but keep it simple, sweetheart. Passive aggression will work at cross purposes to your interests this week.

🌚

It’s another Full Moon this week, so get ready for your Full Moon feels to get all twirly, ya’ll.

On the 9th the Moon will be Full in Sagittarius. When the Moon is full, our feels get so intense that it’s hard to evade them. While this is inconvenient, it’s also an important step in embodiment. This is a great time to purge, take a step inward, and seek the truth. The 9th will also bring a sextile from romantic Venus to proactive Mars, and Sagittarius’s ruling planet, Jupiter, will go station Direct. All of this adds up to an important opportunity: seek the truth about the nature of your relationships. These aspects are all about the tension between feeling acutely aware of your existential aloneness and your relationships to others. You may be called upon to show up for yourself or with the folks you’re enmeshed with in ways that are uncomfortable but sorely needed. You may have to dredge up old dynamics in order to finally move beyond them; don’t fear the past when you can learn from it.

From the 12th-14th, the planet that governs the platonic side of relationships, Mercury, will be busy as a bee as it trines philosophical Jupiter and squares idealistic Neptune. This means we’ll be contending with big plans, big ideas, and potentially some big disappointments. Pull in your pyrite or other grounding and clarifying stone helpers because if you’re not grounded on this earthly plane, you’re missing out on a huge part of the work of being an embodied person. Be wary of unvetted potential based in fantasy or projection, lovers. This is an easy time to miss out on the very real details, so double check your work and leave your serious processing to another day. Fantasy and escapism are likely with these two planets in aspect to Mercury, which could be either good or not, depending on what you’re up to. If you find yourself caught off guard by anxiety, the best course is to narrow your scope of focus and concentrate only on one thing at a time. When Mercury and Neptune form hard aspect to each other, it’s easy to forget to drink water and tend to your basic needs. Be gentle and patient with yourself as you navigate your way through, lovers.

🖤 

 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Your reactions and feels are super important, but when you mistake your kneejerk responses for your heartfelt emotions, you create all kinds of drama. This week you’ll benefit from sifting through your instincts to see what they’re made of. If you find that you’re justifying your actions because you’re actually not cool with them, that’s OK; it takes real strength of character to be humble. Seek the truth, even when it’s uncomfortable, Aries.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week’s Full Moon is going to be a big one for you, Taurus. No one likes their stability as much as you do, and that can be a really beautiful thing. It’s a mistake to decide that something is reliable when you don’t have data to back it up. Let matters develop before you decide what they are. You may have to let go of the past in order to be truly open to your future. Vet the things that bring you happiness before you decide what they mean for you, my love.

May 21-June 21

The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 9th can only mean one thing – it’s your Birfday season! This lunar event happens but once a year, and it’s an opportunity that you shouldn’t miss out on; it’s your time to check in on home base. Take time to honor the people and places you call home. It’s easy to get caught up in your head, but your heart needs your attention too. You may be asked to explain what you’re feeling this week; don’t say I didn’t warn you.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

You need work/life balance like never before, Moonchild. This week you may find that the energy around town is more intense than you can bear, and if so, you’ll need to step your self-care game up a notch. Do the little things – like remember to breathe and to drink water – but here’s another bit of homework: practice being spacious. When you find yourself caught up with something, cultivate largess of spirit around it. There’s always a bigger picture; seek it, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

There’s letting go of a person, a time, a situation, or even of a dream, and then there’s letting go of your role in it. It’s time for you to connect the dots between your patterns in relationship to others and your relationship to yourself. It’s not realistic to expect your dynamics to be different outside of you when you’re indulging in the same internal merry-go-rounds. Shift how you talk to yourself and the priority you place on distractions, and you’ll set in motion the closure you need, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

It’s OK to not know what you want, but you’ve gotta own it, and then you should know that it’s OK for others to not be down for that. Your job is not to control other people’s feelings, but to own your own. Having healthy boundaries doesn’t promise you easy dynamics with others, but it does promise that you’ll have healthier problems. This week it’s imperative to your wellness to show all the way up with wherever you’re at in your relationships, my love.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Truth is not a matter of opinion, but it can be one of perspective. This week you may have to contend with some emo miscommunications. Be open to understanding others’ experience of things without being so quick to defend yourself. You don’t have to agree in order to really listen, but you can’t listen properly when you’re thinking of your rebuttals. Let this one be a week of investigation, Libra. Understanding broadens everything, even when you don’t like what you see.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

What are you most scared of? More importantly – why? What you fear says more about you than you may think, Scorpio. If you use the Full Moon on the 9th to help you investigate what you’re resisting, you may make some progress in dislodging its roots from your belly. There’s a deep wave running through your life this week, and if you ride it, you can enjoy some meaningful spiritual progress. Avoid it and you’re likely to feel overwhelmed and confused. The choice is always yours.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It’s your turn, ‘Tarius. With the Full Moon in your sign, you’ve got a meaningful opportunity to get real with yourself. How you feel about the people in your life and how you feel in your body are on the table. If you are able to tolerate both, you’re doing alright, and if you have a hard time with one or both, that’s OK too. The energy in your life is calling in change – don’t resist it. Confront things head on, and see what comes from that this week.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Get ready, Cappy. This week, emotions that you’ve been doing an excellent job of repressing are going to demand your attention. Sometimes the only way to it is through it. Instead of resisting the chaos, try being interested in it. Explore your emotions in order to better know yourself and to ultimately have a more whole relationship with yourself. Here’s a pro tip for those pesky feelings: turmoil is a top layer emotion. Find the feels at the roots of your unnerved moments.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You’re on the hook for the things you say and do, Aquarius. The ways that you behave have their consequences, and this week you may have to answer for some things that feel like ancient history to you but are very real for someone else. Even if you find that people aren’t making sense to you, this is a great time to sharpen your listening skills. Active listening requires not just hearing what the other person is saying but being emotionally present when ya do.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Anxiety is the worst, and while sometimes it comes on for no apparent reason, other times it’s the result of either having too much going on or pushing too much down. This week Neptune will be tugging at your nerves, making it easy for you to feel over it all. Ask yourself if you need to slow down or if there’s something you need to confront. Peace will come from the choices you make, not by gritting your teeth to bear it all. Take the time you need for self-care, my love.

🔮Astrology isn’t magic even though a good astrology reading is totally magical.

It’s a system of forecasting events that relies on the movement of the planets in our solar system to predict what comes next. It’s an invaluable tool for understanding ourselves, our lives, and others. This week there are some “easy” transits, and then there’s a single “hard” one. When I tell you that there’ll be easy transits, you may get excited, but remember this: the chill stuff is just as easy to ignore or take for granted as it is to seize upon. Pain and turmoil demand your attention while a gentle breeze does not. This week, your homework is to be grateful. Take breaks in your day to recognize your choices; to appreciate your freedoms; and to value your health, your safety, your good hair day – whatever you can direct your gratitude toward. Embrace opportunities for connection, growth, or just unwinding.

On the 30th-1st, Mercury – the planet that governs your mind – will trine transformative and deep Pluto. Then on the 31st-2nd, agreeable Venus will trine Saturn, the planet of time. These two transits are nice and easy, so work to make the most of them. The Mercury transit is an excellent time to reach out to contacts and make meaningful connections. This is a great time for studying, healing work, and reconciliation. On it’s heels is the Venus trine, which will bring stability and patience. Pour your energy into the people and things you value on these days, and keep it real, babies. There’s no point in calling security and peace to a situation that isn’t right for you. Manage your finances, organize your closet, and spend time with the people you want to be with in the long haul.

The second half of this week is when shit gets real. From the 3rd-5th, the Sun will form a square to fuzzy Neptune. This can produce a great deal of anxiety and confusion, so remember to breathe through your feels before you endeavor to manage your stresses. These are the days to bust out your Sage or Palo Santo and clear away whatever energy you’re feeling that isn’t yours. Because this transit isn’t happening to you personally (it’s happening in the world), everyone will be affected by it, and that means that everyone is likely to be a bit off. The positive side of Neptune is compassion, empathy, and generosity, so strive to embody those qualities when you feel overwhelmed. You may be called upon to accept something that you really don’t want to this week, so remember this: acceptance isn’t consent, it’s awareness. Wanting it to be a sunny day is reasonable, but insisting that it's sunny when it’s objectively pouring rain outside just isn’t. Treat your reality with true kindness, and cope with it from there. ☔️

 

 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

It’s easy to point fingers, but it doesn’t take anyone very far. This week is all about the power of your heart, Aries. If you act in ways that you’re able to justify, but in your heart of hearts you know isn’t right, you’re likely to feel all kinds of off this week. Even if it’s hecka awkward, now’s the time to be vulnerable and offer yourself to the people or causes that you believe in. Behave in new ways and attract new dynamics into your life because real change has to start with you.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Things are most likely not as bad as you fear, Taurus. Your attachment to security can get you to cling on to the rough stuff, even when you’re trying to let it go. This week is going to offer you chances to release your grip on the people and things that you’re ready to outgrow. Change is hard, but it’s also really good. You can transform your life in stages, but it’s important that you stay on track. Life is meant to be lived; take chances to make yours spectacular.

May 21-June 21

There’s a reason they say that freedom isn’t free, my friend. If you want to have full rein over your life, that includes all the boring stuff and the hard stuff too. This week you may have to deal with some of the costs of your liberty, but it’s totally worth it. Don’t let other people’s ideas about what is or isn’t possible limit you, Twin Star. If you’re willing to follow through on your passions, you’ll find that you can achieve most anything this week.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

This week, look for that moment when you feel frustrated and like giving up. Notice the thoughts that accompany your feelings, and be interested in their content and tone. You’re meant to be a kind and loyal friend to yourself – are you? Show yourself generosity and nurturance when you need them most. This week, you’ll have choices to make, and there’s unlikely to be a “right” or “wrong” answer. Choose the path that sparks the most joy, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

As things change it’s only natural for you to feel overwhelmed. This week, all kinds of feels and fears are coming up. The trick is not to Netflix and disassociate; instead, it’s time to face the music. First, get clear about what you’re really concerned about, and for each concern, name the three worst things that can result. Next, write out a couple of things you can do if you have to deal with those worst-case scenarios. Break things down to gain more control over your fears, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

There’s no way to the other side that doesn’t involve going through it, Virgo. This week you may feel like you’ve reached your limit, but don’t give up! It’s time for you to take stock of the stuff you’ve been carrying with you and lay some of your burdens down. It’s your job to prioritize what needs to get done, what can’t live without your attention, and what you need to let go of for now. If you have reasonable expectations of yourself, you’ll feel better and be more effective, my love.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

If you feel like hiding from the world to make yourself feel better, it won’t work. You need people, and people need you, Libra. Reach out to people you trust, and honor your feels enough to share them. Your anxieties will whisper all kinds of reasons to hide your true self from others, but don’t listen to them; this is your time to try new ways of connecting with people. If you don’t have loved ones nearby, volunteer your time to help out a neighbor. Connection will feed your soul this week.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You don’t have to take on other people’s troubles as an act of loyalty, Scorpio. This week you’re on call to have healthy boundaries with the people that you love. Chose to bear witness to their issues instead of running in to side with them in a big show of solidarity. Showing up doesn’t mean you have to agree with everything. It just means being there for someone in their moment of need. Show up without attachments, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Relationships are a constant work in progress; even the best ones have their problems, and you can have a lovely time with someone who’s just not trustworthy. It’s complicated! Check in with your choices, ‘Tarius. You’re in a place where you’re meant to take stock of what you’re participating in and whether it’s serving you or not. You may have to watch out for power struggles that miss the point, or dynamics that are going in circles this week. The changes you want to see need to start with you.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

When it comes to the things you want, do you know why you want them? You’re likely to find that the stuff you want to feed your ego will be pretty hard to digest. Make sure that you’re not competing with someone for a prize you don’t really care about, Capricorn. You may need to be willing to let go of a dream or a plan that you once thought would bring you happiness because now you know better. Create the life you want by aligning yourself with what brings you naches in the here and now.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

They say what doesn’t kill you makes your stronger, and you may need to make it your mantra this week. Your fear of loss is so great that you may feel tempted to bail preemptively, but don’t do it, Aquarius. Make the choice to get real about your issues and how they’ve been impacting your relationships, or you may find that realness hoisted on you. It’s time for you to step up and deal with the stuff you’ve been obsessing on; finding a constructive attitude will do you a world of good.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

This week is time for action, Pisces. You’ve been worrying over your plans for some time now, and it’s finally your moment to make your plans materialize. Don’t worry about getting things done quickly. That’s not as important as getting them done well. The better thought out your plans are, the easier it will be to track your progress. Things are likely to start moving quickly around you, so stay internally steady as you let your success manifest.

Get ready to get back at it! There’s so much going on this week that you'll need to stay clear about what you really want, or you’ll end up fighting just because you don’t wanna lose. It’s not enough to be ambitious; you’ve got to want the right things. No matter how strong they are, don’t let your feels trip you up so much that you act out of blind, reactive defensiveness. 

The New Moon in inquisitive Gemini on the 25th should be a lighthearted time of seeking new beginnings and opportunities. The trouble is that  tender Venus will be squaring obsessive Pluto at the same time. ‘Squares’ in astrology offer potentially creative upsets. These can end up making you feel like you’re being attacked. They can also make your circumstances just challenging enough for you to finally get it. When Pluto and Venus square off, you’re on the hook to honor your own values. You’re likely to feel obsessive, compulsive, or straight up persecuted around this day, but that doesn’t mean that things are actually that dire. This is a good time to notice the difference between a trigger (something that sets off old feels), and a trauma (a current event that is destructively harmful). Sometimes the very thing we most need is kinda painful, so be brave enough to confront your sad or bad feelings, to better understand them. Relationships will be transformed, consciously or unconsciously – so stay woke to the events of your life this week! Be especially on the lookout for matters related to love, money, and diplomacy. As the old adage goes, “It’s better to have loved and lost than to live with a jerk for the rest of your life.” Be willing to let go of what no longer serves you.

On the 28th, self-obsessed Mars will sit opposite taskmaster Saturn, and let me tell you, this does not bode well for those of you who try to wait out the stressors that pop up early on in the week. This energy is a total boner killer; Mars wants to get things done, and Saturn is all about checks and balances. Watch out for road rage, really dark and brooding feelings, and generally feeling stymied around this time. It’s a great time to edit or to study something really hard, but it's a bad time for getting quick results. 

Being a person can be hard. Sometimes you’re on top, and sometimes you can’t catch a break. The trick is to not get so twisted up with the bad stuff, or so indulgent with the awesome bits, that you lose track of yourself. Rise to the occasion, lovers. Be your best self now, especially when it seems easiest not to.

💋

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Watch yourself, Aries, because this week will bring you lots of opportunities to act out if you're not careful. When someone goes low, do you go high, or do you get down in the dirt with them? Breathe through your reactions to other people, and seek grace when you’d rather fight yourself, them, or your environment. You can’t always get what you want, anymore than you can control what you feel. Strive to act with patience for your own process as your emotions run high.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

What you care about requires regular maintenance. If you don’t tend to things, you’ll find that life has a funny way of drawing your attention to them. It’s time to examine the dark side of your desires, Taurus. Every light casts a shadow, and while you don’t need to fear it, you do need to understand it. Get real honest about the stuff you’ve been repressing or denying; it’s time to deal with the complicated stuff, or you may find that it bites you in your sweet hiney, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s your time of the year, Gemini; the Moon and Sun are both in your sign – ain’t it divine? This week you can expect some delays or setbacks that have you questioning what you’re doing and why. Questioning is good, but self-doubt is a big no-no. Likewise, guilt is a self-obsession that you can do without; strive to have humility in all that you do. The only way to have a true waste of your time is if you don’t learn anything. Stay open and inquisitive, even when things get rough, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

When things get intense this week (and that they will), you can either react to your feels and blindly defend yourself, or get real about your situation. How you participate in your relationships reflects on you. Who you chose to trust in reflects on you, too. You don’t need to understand why you are at this moment – all you need to do is step forward with your best self. Any love that requires you to be self-destructive is not the love for you, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

The cost of following your fear is too damn high. When you feel lost or confused, it’s easiest to succumb to your anxieties because they tend to scream the loudest. It’s important that you remember that they’re not your truest instincts, even if they’re the easiest to locate. This week you’re on call to make a leap of faith. Invest in relationships that support and nurture you, not the ones that make life harder to bear. A dynamic doesn’t have to be heavy to be deep, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You need to be willing to work in order to get where you want to go. This week will present you with problems to solve, but the deepest issues that are running game on you are inner issues, my love. Look for evidence of self-sabotage in how you respond to stressors this week. Your insecurities have an ironclad defense, but that doesn’t make them right. Risk the exposure of your vulnerabilities, and take heartfelt risks, Virgo. You deserve the very best.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Your relationships are likely to be pretty intense this week, Libra. The worst thing that you can do is try to placate the very real problems that come up. Take as much time as you need to figure out how you’re feeling and what you need – just make sure to communicate it clearly if you need space. Ghosting on people is just as bad as yelling at them, so make sure that you aren’t doing either of those things. Show up with honesty, and do the work that your relationships need for the long haul.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Things can’t be what you’d prefer all the time, and while that’s unlikely to be a revelation to you, it doesn’t mean that you’ve acknowledged it. Practice acceptance this week, even about the things you want to change. Acceptance isn’t consent; it’s self-awareness. The way to make the changes you most need in your life is to start from a foundation of self-respect and love. You’re going places, and there’s no reason to bring your old baggage with you.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Your fears bark way worse than they bite. You have so much to do, and you kinda don’t have time to get lost in your worries. The best course to take is this: don’t weave a narrative to match your feels, no matter how true and compelling your storytelling skills are. You don’t ‘know’ what will happen next or what others are thinking. Its tempting to make sense of things when you feel out of control, but you shouldn’t do it at the expense of the truth; let things unfold this week.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

It doesn’t matter if you’re right; if you handle yourself in ways that alienate others, nobody will hear what you have to say. There’s what you want to get off your chest, and then there’s what you want the other person to hear, and they are often two different things. “That made me feel bad” is easier to hear than “let me tell you what you did wrong.” Refine how you communicate when you feel righteous, Cappy, or you risk making things worse.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

If you’ve been holding yourself together with tape and pushing yourself to your limits, this week may be a bit of a breaking point. You’re not supposed to go very far in the wrong direction, and that’s why the Universe loves to kick you in the behind when you’re doing it. Ask yourself if the goals you’re working towards and the methods you’re using are still right for you, Aquarius. Minor adjustments will make major improvements this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

The tension between what you want to do and what you have to do is a kick in the pants these days. There is no hard and fast rule for having balance between your personal and objective goals, but it never hurts to slow down and listen to yourself, Pisces. Honor your feels, even if you don’t have time to indulge them. Don’t abandon or bully yourself in order to get the job done, even if it seems like that would be easier. It takes just as much time to think positive as it does to berate yourself.

💖Darlings!

If you’re reading this, that means you survived last week’s Full Moon madness. There were hard knocks going around, and whether you felt like things were falling apart, getting stuck, or finally coming together, the potential for growth was huge. Schedule some me-time with your Dear Diary to reflect. In three distinct entries, seek insights about yourself, your world, and the people in it. When life gets hectic, it’s easy to go on autopilot and lose track of yourself. Luckily, this week should give you some relief, so make sure to use it. Remember that what you consent to is on you; don’t focus so much on what other people are or aren’t doing that you miss out on the one thing you have control over: your choices.

This week we have a bit of a break. That will mean for some people the stress they’ve been holding back will rise to the surface, and for others it'll bring some real life relief. Be kind to yourself, whatever camp you’re in. From the 17th-19th, the ongoing Saturn trine to Uranus will be exact. Saturn wants stability, structure, and rules that bind, while Uranus wants freedom, expansion, and to break all the rules. This transit indicates that the old school (Saturn) and the new school (Uranus) are in a harmonious relationship, which can be great news for you and me and the whole damn world. This energy facilitates reform to old and outdated structures, and fosters innovative new ways of doing things. This is an excellent time to release stale habits and invite in new practices. This transit, like most other celestial butterfly kisses (aka Trines) is gentle; if you don’t choose to make use of this energy, nothing much will happen, but with clarity of intention and a little elbow grease, this marks a time when you can get more done with less stress.

On the 18th-20th, security-oriented Venus will sit opposite freedom loving Jupiter. This could mark a time when you blow a bunch of money shopping, eat rich and delightful foods, or profess your undying love to someone you barely know. The lesson with all of this is the same – practice moderation with delicious things so that you have no regrets later on. This transit has a strong posi side; it’s an awesome time for feeling yourself, connecting with people you adore, and flirting to completion (if ya know what I mean). Skip the Netflix and get out there and mix it up, lovers!

🥂 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Take a minute to count your blessings, Aries. You’ve been working hard, and as a result, you’ve changed your life in meaningful ways. There’s no point in all that effort if you’re not going to stop and enjoy it, so take a break and honor your accomplishments this week, my love. This is an excellent time to take some risks, start something new, and to improve upon your foundations. Honor the things that most inspire you by heeding their call.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

You don’t have to do a whole lot of external work this week because yours is an inside job, Taurus. Things have been hard in recent weeks, and whether you feel like you’ve come out on the other end or not, this is a moment for you to feel good about your efforts. The most effective way for you to make magic in your life is to trust yourself. You don’t need for things to be perfect as proof that you’ve tried your best. Self-love is the missing ingredient to all your best recipes.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

As your world expands, you can grow along with it, or you can contract in efforts to keep things the same. This week will bring lots of action into your relationship life, and while that’s not good or bad, it will for sure be exciting. If you’re going to start something new, you might as well put your best foot forward, Twin Star. Don’t define yourself by how others see you; you can’t control how others perceive you, and it’s unwise to even try. Just be yourself, whoever that may be today.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

This is an excellent week for introspection and self-care, Moonchild. You’re in a transitional place that is fertile but only if you make use of it. It’s not enough to live in a tumult of emotion; you need to make sense of your feels in order to create the change you want to see in your life. Fear is (on it’s own) not enough of an indicator of danger; learn to decode your inner language so you can act in integrity, even when you’d rather hide out with your worries.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

You can say what’s on your mind, but there’ll be consequences, sweet one. This week you’re on call to stand up for what you believe and deal with consequences. If you feel insecure, that’s OK; just don’t act from that emotion. You’re ready to see things as they really are and move TF on. Just because you can’t see what’s around the bend doesn’t mean that it’s something to fear. Put one foot in front of the other, and make it happen, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Transformation and healing is messy business. You’re totally on the right track and doing the right things, but that doesn’t mean everything is going smoothly. Don’t confuse appearances with substantive truth, Virgo. The problems you’re encountering this week are exactly what you need to deal with in order to be your best self. Not all upsets are here to torture you; be willing to learn from your situation and your reaction to it. Don’t fight the flow; ride the waves, my love.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Loving others doesn’t mean you have to take on their issues. This week you will have to decide to have some boundaries or deal with the repercussions. I know it’s unpleasant, but sometimes you have to fight with the people you’re closest to. Disappointing others is part of everyone’s life, so instead of beating yourself up about your limits, try a different tact: be direct, honest, and humble. You don’t have to be perfect, but if you can be emotionally generous, you’re doing alright, Libra.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Your relationships are a reflection of your values. Do you like what you see? This week you’re on call to honor the people in your life and your connections to them. If you aren’t happy with your relations, take a minute to see whether it’s time to adjust your attitudes and approach or your relationships themselves. If you’re in a solid interpersonal place, celebrate your fam with tiny avalanches of tender, loving kindness.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

If you’ve invested your energy into things that you most care about, this week will bring you opportunities to strengthen your connections to them. If you’ve instead been projecting fantasies while mismanaging your time, you’d better get ready for a reality check, my love. Deal with reality even if it’s not super fun, Sagittarius. You’re ready to move into the next phase of development, just don’t get distracted by bright and shiny distractions along the way.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You don’t have to know exactly what you want in order to keep on progressing. This week you’re going to have to answer for your actions, and that may be no big deal or a kinda emo drama, depending on how you’ve been conducting yourself, Cappy. Instead of rushing to find answers, try and pace yourself through your options. If you’re asking the right questions, the answers have a funny way of revealing themselves.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

If you’re in too big of a rush, you will get there frazzled and exhausted. Try to slow down and check in with yourself, Aquarius. You’re going in the direction, but you may be making things harder than they need to be. Can you ask for help? Can you better prioritize tasks so that you’re not doing everything all at once? The people who’ve got your back can only show up for you if you let them. Take a chance, and make yourself vulnerable in the name of progress this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Your fear of change is only natural, but that doesn’t make it wise. The best things in life are exciting and terrible and risky and divine. Be here for all it, Pisces! Take chances whenever you can this week, in particular if they promise you more freedom and challenge you beyond your comfort zone. Don’t shrink from power if you have a chance to grab it, my love. You’re ready to rise to the occasion and experience more of what you’re capable of.

🎢 It's Full Moon time again, kiddies, and this week is likely to bring hella chaos, so get ready!

The Moon will be full at 20 degrees of Scorpio on the 10th at 2:42pm PST. Expect feels to be at heightened levels of intensity leading up to this event. It’s is a dangerous time for building up resentments, developing grudges, or obsessing on your ex, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. Scorpio is the sign of death and regeneration, healing and destruction; whatever happens with this Moon, it isn’t likely to be chill. You’re going to want to get deep, and that can be complicated if things do go your way, which I’m sad to say they probably won’t.

On the 10th fierce and combative Mars will form a Square to idealistic and devotional Neptune (in transit astrology you can think of the Square aspect as a bit of a curve ball or sucker punch). While the high point of these vibes will be felt on the 11th, you can expect it to intensify the psychic and messy nature of this Full Moon. The best way to manage this is to rely on your spiritual values and tools for staying in alignment with yourself, both emotionally and in your actions. Mars wants to have its energy be known. It wants power, revenge, and validation. Neptune couldn’t care less about any of that; it’s the planet that governs the interconnectedness of all things, or on the dank side, checking out and giving up. The danger here is that your feelings will be so scattered that you end up more overwhelmed than you can handle. The best advice I can give you for these next few days is to hold yourself accountable to the same standards that you hold others to and vice versa. Don’t be a martyr, and don’t think that you’re owed more than anyone else. Thinking that you’re the worst and thinking you’re the best is kinda the same problem – it’s thinking too much about yourself.

The jittery, restless Mercury conjunction to Uranus is still active until the 12th. This means that we all run the risk of gabbing at the mouth about every paranoid theory and defensive feel we have – so watch out! If you can, wait until after the 15th, when Mercury moves into stabilizing Taurus, to draw your conclusions. From the 11th-13th, activating Mars will give butterfly kisses (that’s a Trine aspect for bb astrologers) to expansive Jupiter. This can be great for getting things done in a major way, or it can just make it easy for you to run with le cray much farther than you otherwise would. Be willing to check your entitlement this week, lovers, or you may end up putting something into motion that you can’t stop.

PRO TIPS for A World Gone Wonky:

1. Breathe

2. Align yourself with reliable emotional resources

3. Connect to and honor your spirituality

 

Life is complicated and beautiful; be here for it all.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

If you can accept that you’re not in total control of most things, your work gets a lot clearer, this week. The Full Moon on the 10th is an opportunity for you to release something or someone that you’ve been clinging to that you know is no longer right for you. Sometimes your task is to heal, and others you need to make a call and walk away. If you stop trying to fix things that aren’t broken you can start unpacking what you need to let go of, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Not everything that hurts is bad, and not all dynamics that feel good are healthy for you. Your relationships are an organism – they live and breathe, needing sustenance and care. If you ignore them or mistreat them, they can grow in gnarled directions. Take stock of how you’ve been showing up with the people you’re closest to, Taurus. The first half of this week is an opportunity to have compassion for the people in your life, even if you have to assert some potentially painful boundaries.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s not enough to know what you are, you’ve got to know what you’re not, Twin Star. This week you’re in for a major lesson in boundaries. The trouble is that it’s hard to know what’s enough, too much, or not enough, when you feel wonky about your own value. Prioritize getting grounded in your worth so that you can make the right calls in love and work. Know your rights and your responsibilities and act in ways that reflect them. There’s so much to be gained from setting sustainable expectations, sweet one.

June 22-July 22

Something that’s been bugging you and tugging at your insides is about to come to crisis, Moonchild. If you’re committed to situations that don’t really serve you, you can expect to have stuff come up this week that requires you to deal with them. Be especially careful of being passive aggressive - if you’ve got something to say, spit it out! If you’re asking someone to be humble about their part, lead by example. While you have the right to your feels, you’ve also got to own your part.

Expect the Full Moon on the 10th to kick up some family drama, Leo. You may have some old feels from the past come up with surprising strength, or perhaps a new emotionally intense situation will emerge. The key in either case is for you to show all the way up. If you’ve been acting in ways that aren’t true to you, it’s time for you to own up to them. It’s OK to say you’ve changed your mind, or that you’re wrong. The thing you shouldn’t do is to defensively try to rewrite history. Step up.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Be careful what you say, Virgo, because you’re likely to spend the first half of this week brimming with feelings that scramble your brain. It’s important that you honor the yearnings of your heart so that you don’t project them out and make mountains out of molehills. It’s easy to weave a narrative to match your feels, but that doesn’t mean that you’re telling yourself a true story. If you slow down and take the time to investigate your heart, you’ll able to figure out what’s really going on for you.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Don’t let your fear of conflict distract you from the central issues in your relationships, Libra. You don’t need to be defensive in order to defend yourself, and things don’t need to be terrible in order for you to stand up. This week your ego is gonna get triggered, and it’s on you to not shut down or act out. Be here for honest conversations, even if they’re super awkward and hard. Place authenticity over accommodation, my love.

The Moon is only full in your sign but once a year, when it’s time for the rest of the zodiac to see what it’s like to live with such intense feels, Scorpio. Take an actual break from the busyness of your life and do a real check-in with yourself. If you’ve been holding it together, it’s OK to fall apart for a minute. Don’t wait for something to trigger your feels before you take care of them. Show yourself a little love this week and place your emotional wellness in high regard as a form of self-care.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Things are likely to get a little murky this week, ‘Tarius. Your feelings are likely to be all over the map and while that doesn’t mean that they’re unreliable, it does mean that you need to allow space for things to play out before you jump to conclusions. It’s not just OK to have limits - it’s essential, but it’s also really important to be informed. Breathe through your reactions so you can figure out what you really need to reach towards, and what you need to let go of.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Where do you belong, Cappy? You’re ready to be more involved with community or group ventures, but you’ve got to be choosy about where and with who. This week’s Full Moon on the 10th is going to bring up all kinds of feelings about your place in the world. This is a fertile time for letting go of past entanglements and attachments, and for seeing things as they really are. This is the first step in a process of feeling more connected to others in a way that gives you life, instead of drains it outta you.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Where are you going, Aquarius, like really? This week’s Full Moon is an opportunity to get real about the track you’ve set yourself on. If you’re not happy with the choices you’ve made in recent months you’re likely to feel the weight of it now. It may be tempting to check out and lose yourself in daydreams and distractions but that would be a waste of an opportunity.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

You don’t need to take on other people’s dramas as a way of showing support. It’s not on you to know some magic solution that works ideally for everyone; all you need to know is what’s right and healthy for you. This week your mantra gets to be: “those are not my monkeys, and this is not my circus”. Manage your own sweet self, and let others do the work of figuring their own selves out, Pisces. Know your limits and honor them, my love.

Mercury goes Station Direct on the 3rd – finally. When a planet goes ‘SD’ or station direct, it means that it's no longer moving backwards, but it isn't moving forward at its normal speed either. When a planet is SD, it’s a great time to pause and catch up with things rather than moving full-speed ahead. While you can expect your computer to stop acting funny and communication issues to start clearing up, things aren’t quite back to normal yet.

Last week on the 26th of April, Mercury retrograded to sit back on top of Uranus again (the last time you felt this was on March 26th), and it’ll go on through May 12th. Uranus rules the central nervous system and Mercury is your mind; this means that you can expect to feel nervous, hecka genius, on edge, and/or spontaneously ready to combust. The combination will make you quick to jump to conclusions but restless with whatever you settle on (FUN!). Sleep may be hard to come by, so get your breath work and meditative practices on because we’ll be feeling the effects of this transit most strongly this week around the 9th. 

No matter how tempted you are, it’s wise to avoid gossip and smack talk during this influence because you’ll find that secrets have a way of coming out in the most awkward ways. You may feel ready to cut ties or just cuss someone out, but try to sit on your reactions, lovers. If things feel that serious after this transit passes, have at it, but resist the temptation to pick fights that don’t actually need to happen. This energy can be really disruptive, so strive to make those disturbances creative instead of destructive. The potential here is that you see things from a new angle and find ways of working with information or relationships that are expansive. The risk is that you’re careless and end up hurting yourself and others in the process.

The good news is that when that stressful Mercury transit peaks on the 9th we’ll also enjoy a deepening Sun trine to transformative Pluto. This intensifies your ability to see the truth and grow from what you learn. Be open to meaningful encounters, whether they’re with yourself or another person; this energy represents the power for creative change, but you’ve got to chose to make it happen.

The best approach to this week’s astrology is to observe the ways that you experience, and react to mental stress. Bring awareness to your own patterns so that you can either better accept yourself, or change what isn’t serving you. This is a unique and transformative time – seize it with intention!

Inner peace is a practice, not a destination, lovers.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

You’re a person with strong preferences, and that’s a beautiful thing. When you don’t honor your truth, however, you end up feeling weird, like nothing quite fits. This week you’re on call to own the ways that you haven’t acted in integrity with what you know to be true. It’s no small thing, but it’s also not the end of the world. Identify and express the truth, no matter how uncomfortable it makes you, Aries. Be a willing participant in the direction of your life, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

The truth is not a slippery slope; it’s a steady plateau. You’re at war with something that is irrevocably true, and it’s hurting you, Taurus. Instead of struggling against the tide, take a pause and look at what you’re trying so desperately to protect. Change, instability, and growth all come with a price tag, but stagnancy is way more expensive. Love yourself through the instability of this moment, and avoid random fights that distract you from your real problems.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

The most stressful things can bring you to your greatest potential. Instead of shrinking in the face of your insecurities, this week your challenge is to embody the resourcefulness that you’ve been working so hard to cultivate. Take control of your life, Twin Star. If you’re willing to outgrow some parts of your life, you have to be ready for everything to change. Don’t hold yourself back this week. Let go of the old, and embrace a new adventure.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

The needs of others can be totally counter to yours, and that doesn’t mean that anyone is exactly at fault. It’s complicated, and the more willing you are to be here for the messiness, the more able you are to have real and lasting intimacies. Your anxieties, triggers, and IRL situations are all shaken up by the snow globe of life. Don’t succumb to your worst fears without giving your relationships a fighting chance; avoid jumping to conclusions this week.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

There are some nagging fears nipping at your heels, Leo. These aren’t brand new concerns, they’re deep old beliefs running on loop. Your job right now is to figure out if they’re trying to protect you or keep you stuck. There’s often a very fine line between the two, but you’ve got to get out your magnifying glass and find it. Seek the creative potential in what you chose; while it can be therapeutic to go through difficult things, that’s not the only way to heal, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You’re ready to make changes, and it’s super exciting, Virgo. Growing is scary sometimes because it’s pretty inevitable that you’ll outgrow people and things, but you shouldn’t let it stop you. This week you’re on call to expand beyond your ideas about who you are and how you get to be. Instead of maintaining the status quo, now’s the time for you to take steps to create a greater peace than you’ve yet to experience. Take radical steps towards security this week.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You’ve got to be brave, Libra. There’s only so far that diplomacy and niceness will take you – sometimes you’ve got to assertively push yourself forward. Confront your fears and negative beliefs about what will happen if you break ranks with your old ways and become more. Avoid obsessive thinking if you can, and if you can’t, try to insert a positive belief or statement into your busy brain. You’re going places; don’t make it harder on yourself than it needs to be.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Love is a healing and regenerative force, as is happiness. Make the conscious choice to align yourself with the situations, people, and things that spark joy. I’m not suggesting that you act like a Pollyanna; life, and the world at large are stressful. What I recommend this week is that you earnestly strive to seek the positive, the potential, and the growth opportunity in every annoying, scary, or upsetting thing that comes up.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

When you take on too much it’s pretty much inevitable that you’ll get overwhelmed and shut down sooner or later. The question for you to ask yourself this week is what specifically you’re rushing towards; is there anything that you could do a better job of appreciating or investing in, in the here and now. It’s time to slow down and do a better job of valuing where you’re at. In doing so your plans will get richer and more effective, as will your outcomes.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

The past has a way of repeating itself, but it doesn’t have to. If you’re willing to learn from your own history – to look at the choices you made that were and weren’t on point for you – you can make meaningful changes to how you interact with your current circumstances. This isn’t your first rodeo, and it’s on you to make use of the wisdom you’ve accumulated, Cappy. Take the risk of doing things differently this week; you’re likely to be happily surprised by what happens next.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You have a fantastic imagination, Aquarius, and that’s an amazing gift to have. The trouble with it is that you can fantasize yourself into a deep, dark hole and conjure up all manner of impossibilities from there. If you’re going to guess into your future or pretend you know what other people are thinking or feeling, then  this week your challenge is to come up with creative, positive, or at least neutral visions. Don’t make life so much more stressful for yourself than it needs to be, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

One way or another, you’ve chosen the path you're on. The question you need to ask yourself again and again, is: do I chose this? Am I down for this? Because if the answer is no, you have choices. They may not be great options, but they’re yours. The more keyed in to your free will you are, the easier it’ll be to align your actions with your intentions, Pisces. This week your fears may be screaming in your ear, but that doesn’t make them right.

:: Petrified Wood ::

🍕Fantastic news, sweeties! This is the last week of Mercury Rx – it’ll be Direct on the 3rd, and this means that you should see a smoothing out of communications and technical difficulties. On the 28th Venus enters Aries, and this shift is bound to spice things up. On this same day, Mercury Retrograde will sit on top of iconoclastic Uranus, and it’s gonna be intense. Uranus has a way of making us feel antsy and nervous. Try not to act without sufficient forethought on anything that spontaneously occurs to you, my loves. Uranus has a funny way of making things urgent, and Mercury is only too happy to rush into ideas that don’t have emotional wisdom embedded in them. This is a great time for discovery and exploration; try something new, but don’t commit to your conclusions for a few days if you can help it.
 
On the 26th we have a lovely New Moon in Taurus. New Moons are perfect for kicking off something new. Taurus is a sensual Material Girl, and since we’re living in a material world, here are three simple Pro Tips for manifestation to try out:
 
1. Get clear about what you want to call into your life. 
Don’t let it be too complicated; the more distilled and clear the intention, the closer at hand it is. If you have to write out a bullet point list or a journal entry to clarify your intention, that’s just fine.
 
2. Get emotionally aligned with your desire.
If what you want to call into your life is hella money, but you’re emotions are focused on a fear of poverty, you won’t get what you want. Do not allow your feelings about what you don’t currently have to be stronger than your desires.
 
3. Keep your emotions and your thoughts on the same page.
It’s that simple! Alignment is amazingly simple and very difficult. Stay present with the things you want, even when you don’t have evidence of them yet in your life. Too much focus on what you don’t have is like an investment in it. 

If you don’t do it this New Moon there’ll always be another one next month. Honor your desires and remember in this plodding Taurus time that you don’t need things to move quickly; you need them to move in the right direction.
🖤

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

There’s no amount of pushing your agenda forward that’s going to satisfy you, Aries. This week you’re on call to cultivate some receptivity. If you hold back, what might come to you? What new insights might you have? There’s really only one way to find out. Take time to figure out what you really want. Fear has played too big of a role in your assessment of your goals. Give yourself the space to figure out what you need so you that you know it when it comes for you.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week’s New Moon is in your sign, and it’s a big deal. You should expect to feel all the stuff you’ve been trying to shrug off; prepare for it, my love. That means you’ve got to carve out some space for you to unplug from the world and align with your messy, complicated feels. You don’t need to have the answers,  but you do need to make room at the table for the questions. Love yourself enough to have patience with your process, Taurus.

May 21-June 21

You’ve worked really hard to get here, but that doesn’t mean that you’re prepared to actually stick around. There are seasons to everything, and you’re really good at the part of the cycle that’s about striving. The good news is that you’ve gotten to a place of results, but the bad news is that you’re a bit ill-equipped to flow with some of the best stuff in your life. That’s OK, Twin Star – you get to be a work in progress, and this is a great time to expand your skill set and your life.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Like it or not, you’re seeing things clearly, Moonchild. This week you’re in an excellent position to deal with your relationships as they are. The trick is to not get roped into emotional battles that you know aren’t really about you; challenge yourself to embody healthy boundaries when things get emo. You don’t need to have all the answers in order to stop a conversation from going in a certain direction or to be honest about where you’re at with things. Be open to the process, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Being in a period of instability is a bit scary, but it’s also hella fertile. This week is an excellent one for putting into motion the things that you know need to change. The risks you take by shaking things up may be intimidating, but what’s worse is sitting in sub par circumstances and doing nothing. Don’t be a wallflower in your own life; rise to the challenge of doing you, even when others don’t get it or are unwilling to get behind it. This is your one life – honor it, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

There’s a tension between being alone and being intimate that you must address this week, Virgo. When you feel anxious it’s easy to want to hide away from others while you get yourself in order, and there’s a wisdom to that. The problem is that you (or me, or anyone else) is never perfect, and so you may find yourself in a pattern of hiding that you don’t even remember starting. Don’t wait to be ready – try now. It’s OK to be scared; just don’t let it stop you, my love.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

So much is going your way: yay! Unfortunately, not everybody is enjoying your good fortune, and so not everyone is on your vibe. This week will pose a great opportunity to be well-boundaried. Don’t mirror or take on the feels of the people you’re close to. You can be having a great day while someone you love is in the pits. Just remember to be willing to listen to where they are in equal parts to how much you share about yourself. Seek balance in how you approach your relationships, Libra.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

All relationships have their cycles. There are times when we are very close, and then life can get in the way and things distract away. Rather than trying to create the perfect conditions for your connections to thrive, try to just stay honest. If you know you’re not all in, don’t tell someone you are. If you know that you’re feeling hurt, don’t pick a fight to distract from that pain. Show all the way up, Scorpio, especially when it feels risky, this week.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It’s time to confront your fears, ‘Tarius. There’s a worried part of your mind that’s obsessing on all the things that could go wrong, but that ain’t right! Grab hold of opportunity this week because this is an excellent time for kicking things off. It’s an especially good time for creative and romantic beginnings, so put yourself in the position where things can happen. Open yourself up to possibilities without attachment to what does or doesn’t happen, my friend.

You have choice, Capricorn. You can look at your life and see what isn’t there, or you can look at it and see what you’ve got. You can approach your successes as just stepping stones to the next big thing, or you can take time to appreciate them. This week it’s important to consider your perspective; your reality is in part what you make it, so why not strive to make it as hopeful a place as you can? Take chances on happiness, my love.

Here’s the thing: you know what you want, and you know that you’re impatient to make it happen. What you don’t know is that if you got it all at once that you’d likely to not be able to handle it. It’s a good, if not pretty annoying, thing that your success is coming in stages, Aquarius. Don’t rush your progress and forget to enjoy this present moment. Strive to be grateful for what you’ve got in the here and now, and build from that foundation.

Feb. 19-March 20

Don’t rush away from upset feelings, Pisces! I know it’s tempting to bolt when things are painful, but you run the risk of abandoning your own self just when you need to be your own best ally. This week, your challenge is to be the best friend to yourself that you can; don’t indulge yourself in self-destructive or evasive maneuvers when the going gets rough; assert yourself firmly and caringly. You don’t need for things to go perfectly, you only need to try your best.

🥀

This is a week of transition. The Sun moves from active Aries and into sensual Taurus on the 19th. This shift, on the heels of that long Venus Rx, will help to get you grounded into what really matters to you in the material world. This day also brings us a Sun conjunction to Mercury Retrograde, and Mercury’s the planet that’s currently functioning like a robot on the fritz. This is an excellent day for working with your Dear Diary and cultivating insights that help you make sense of your world, but not so much for making hard and fast plans. The following day (the 20th), Mercury shuffles on back into Aries, and on the 21st Mars moves into fast-paced Gemini. These shifts are great for innovation and play, but they can try your patience if you need to have it. The takeaway here is that this is a time for evolution. If you’ve been trying to keep things the same, you’ll find that it’s hard to do and actually won’t even work. You’re not supposed to stay the same, my loves. Even as we move into security-oriented Taurus time, we must learn this: no peace will come from stability built on stagnancy. Find your happiness in the places where you can be authentic, and build your fortunes on that foundation, not the other way around.

That brings us to the big news this week – on the 21st Venus comes around to square Saturn again (this last happened on April 8th and before that on January 27th). What Saturn wants is to teach you a lesson, and what Venus wants is peace and love; the result is that we’re on the hook for how we prioritize the situations, things, and dynamics that we most value now. It’s easy to err on the side of diplomacy when Venus is involved, but Saturn won’t have it; take responsibility for the ways that you aren’t in alignment with what you’re convicted about. You’re not supposed to be perfect, and this isn’t supposed to be easy. Take responsibility for yourself without degenerating into guilt or glossing over the gritty stuff. The only way to create security is by having a solid foundation in your self. Make it your priority as you go through this season of change.

🌿🌵

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Change is inevitable; your job is too make sure that you’re growing in a direction that allows you to be your best self rather than moving in one that coddles you in your limitations. This week you’re likely to get some opportunities that will test your strength of character. To honor what you believe to be right, you may have to pass up something that looks good on paper. Be brave enough to do what’s right for you, even if other people don’t understand what you’re doing.

The thing about risk is that you can’t avoid it. There’s no path that you can take that allows you to avoid growing pains, loss, and failure. It’s all part of the journey, Taurus. Don’t let what could go wrong stop you from creating what could be very, very, right. This week is ripe for moving forward with changes that are scary but super worth it. You’re ready to take the necessary steps to get a little extra happy in your life.

Mars enters your sign this week, and that can bode well for you if you’re willing to work. This shift in energy is an invitation to get into your body and to get motivated. If you’ve been dragging your feet, this is the perfect shift for you to spring into action. If, however, you’ve been on a roll of making things happen, you should be careful that you don’t step on anyone’s toes as you move towards your goals.

June 22-July 22

When you feel overwhelmed, it’s easy to focus on everything outside of you as a way to make yourself feel more grounded, but that just doesn’t work. Take this self-care challenge this week: whenever you feel sticky emotionally, take a deep breathe and check in with your body. Notice where your emotions are located in your body, and feel them. Ground into your felt experience without excuses, defenses, or stories. Just feel the feels and keep on keepin’ on, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Letting go is hard; there are so many layers to be released if you want to really move on. Closure doesn’t come from outside influences; it’s something that you must work towards yourself. It’s not enough to be ‘over it’ – you’ve also got to know the part of you that once consented to the situation that you’re now wanting to move past, and come to peace with it. Don’t be a bully, Leo. Allow yourself to be at whatever stage of the letting-go process that you’re at, so you can do it right and do it once.

How do you evaluate success, Virgo? if you don’t have a central sense of your goals and what achievement looks and feels like when you hit it, then you’re likely to have a pretty uncomfortable week. You’re on call to manage your anxieties by streamlining your thoughts. Distill your concerns down to their most essential and functional parts so that you don’t get overwhelmed by all the details.

You don’t have to make a decision, Libra. Seriously. It’s OK to weigh out your options against your feels before you make a call, even if that call is to hit the pause button. The trick is to own it. If you act passively in the face of your choices, it’ll make you feel agitated and disempowered, and that just sucks. Own the complicated and messy stuff because you have the right to feel whatever you feel, my love. Don’t act out; owning your actions feels so much better in the long run.
