Love Lanyadoo Astrology 7.19-25.2017

🍿

The Sun and Mars enter playful Leo early this week, and that means that it’s time to let the light in, lovelies! Before that solar shift happens, we have one more kick in the pants from the Sun in Cancer though; watch out from the 19th-21st as the planet that governs our sense of self forms a challenging Square to disruptive Uranus. This transit will bring about sudden changes, upsetting conditions, and unexpected shifts in power. This is a great time for exploration and creating reform but a terrible one for making things more secure. Be open to learning something that you didn’t think was true, and keep your gossiping to a minimum as it’s likely to come back to haunt you.

These days can also trigger restless anxiety, so make sure that when you’re feeling nervous, you try to get grounded and breathe into the present moment as much as possible. 

The big news this week happens on the 23rd with the New Moon at 2:46amPST. This New Moon in Leo is the first of two New Moons in the sign of play and creativity this summer – the second one will be the Great American Eclipse on August 23rd. It’s rare to have two New Moons in the same sign – we usually only get one per year. Trust that whatever comes up now will be extra meaningful and  intense. None of this is made more chill by the fact that passionate Mars is sitting pretty much on top of this Moon. Be open to learning about your ego, lovers. Leo can be self-involved and arrogant, and the Moon has a hard time seeing other people’s experiences when it gets too emo. How you assert yourself, how you evaluate your own or others' merits, what you feel entitled to take, or the priority you place on getting yours is likely to be staring you straight in the face this week. Instead of devolving into defensiveness, embrace the fullness of what you are and how you do! Embrace the work of directing yourself where you want to go, even if it seems like it’ll be a lot of work.

TBH the Universe has got you in a corner because from the 23rd-25th compromising Venus will be opposite rigid Saturn. This will further the need for you to make sure that that your actions are an accurate reflection of your values. Saturn can make you feel lonely and hyper-critical of your looks, your relationships, and how you come across to others. Your best course of action is to get aligned with yourself and not worry so much about what others do or don’t think about you.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

What you want and what’s in your best interest are not always the same thing, my love. This week your impulses will be zinging, and it would be easy to jump to conclusions and get deeply invested in something that you don’t yet fully understand. Instead of looking outside of yourself for answers, practice checking in with what’s underneath your feels, Aries. By better understanding your impulses, you can make better, more effective choices.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This is it, Taurus. You’re in a powerful state of manifestation, and that’s either going to be a very good or a very bad thing for you this week. Where your emotions are fixated is where you’ll see results, so get real about what you’re resonating with. If you’re on a diet and eating healthily but focused on how much you hate your body as it is, you’re likely to manifest more of your pain. Get your feels and your thoughts on the same page, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

What you value is not a theoretical thing – it’s reflected in your actions on the daily. This week is likely to bring about an encounter with your choices that crystallizes a reality you’ve been avoiding, Twin Star. Instead of defending your behavior or justifying your right to do as you please, first make sure that you mean it. This is an excellent time to face facts and redirect your life. Confront the truth; you’ll be better for it, I promise.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

It’s essential that you’re honest, Moonchild. You don’t need to fix anyone’s feels, you just have to show up. Be honest with yourself about what you’re feeling and why. Then you’ve got to share that truth with the people you trust. You’re not right or wrong, good or bad – you’re a complex and layered person. It’s OK if things are messy and you have contradicting feels. Own your perspective because the truth is true, whether you want it to be or not, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

On July 23rd, we have a New Moon in your sign, and it’s related to the upcoming New Moon in Leo, also known as the Great American Eclipse on 8/21. (You usually only get one New Moon in your sign per year!) This is not the time for messing around, Leo; this is a special time in history, and a meaningful time for you, personally. How you show up and who you chose to be are extra crucial because of this unusual lunar activity. If you allow yourself to be emotionally present, you will discover profound heartfelt truths.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

As the world around you changes, you must change too. This week isn’t meant to be stable, it’s meant to be a time of expansion. Maintain your self-care without attachments, Virgo. what I mean to say is that you shouldn’t try to direct the flow of your life this week because new data is coming in that will help you change or expand your perspectives. You can’t benefit from this if you’re not open to seeing things differently though. Open your heart and your mind, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Things are gonna come at you real fast this week, so now’s the time to address your ambiguities, Libra. If you don’t know what you want, you may buy into a plan that is great – just not great for you. Cultivate the kind of self-reference that supports you in knowing the difference between a crush on a person or situation versus a crush on their crush on you. All that glitters is not gold, my friend. Use your discretion, and don’t be scared of saying no this week.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Instead of seeking to avoid problems, embrace them, Scorpio. This is an excellent time to get things done that you’ve long been putting off. This may not be an easy week, but it doesn’t have to be bad either. Identify the material limitations you’ve been feeling blocked by, and write a three point plan of what you can begin to do to tackle them. You don’t need to fix anything, but you should set your sites on proactive steps to improve your life this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Feeling lonely is the pits. It’s a restless place to be, but in truth it’s important to be able to take a step back from people and really be with yourself. This week you may feel a bit off when it comes to your relationships, but there’s a big picture reason for it; you need you. If you’ve become caught up in other people’s opinions, you’re likely to have lost track of your own. Reconnect with your inner world without needing to get attention to validate your efforts, my love.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Things aren’t supposed to stay the same, Cappy. You are meant to change and grow, and as you do, you’re inevitably going to outgrow some things that you’ve come to rely on. This week may be challenging because you’re on call to do things differently and you only theoretically wanna. Allow space for your heart to drag behind your head if you need to; just don’t leave it in the dust.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

The New Moon on the 23rd in your relationship house is an important moment for everyone, but you’re likely to feel it in an extra sort of way. This week your relationships will come into focus for you, so ready or not, it’s time to cope. Who you chose to invest your energy in and what you consent to participating in are on you. Be the friend, partner, child, or neighbor that you want to be, even if it takes bringing greater intention into all of your interactions this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

At the end of the day you need to like yourself. It’s really easy to get caught up in what you think others want, or your projections into what others think about you, or what’s even possible for you to do based on other’s opinions. But it’s all a fool’s errand. Make sure you believe in the direction of your life, be damned what anyone else says. Commit your actions in the direction you need to so that you like the person you are in the here and now, Pisces.

🐝

After a long week of deep feels and twists of fate, this week kicks off with some good news! Mercury is sextile to Jupiter on the 13th-15th, and this is a chill transit. The energies of this time are good for coming to greater awareness, enjoying your connections to others, and forging plans. There’s a creative flow between the big picture and the details around these days, so take advantage of it!

Trouble doesn’t properly begin until the 16th, when we get hit by a weird double whammy: from the 16th – 18th, the planet of combat, Mars, forms a Square to the planet of sudden explosions, Uranus, while diplomatic Venus Squares devotional Neptune. Lets first take a closer looks at what a ‘Square’ is. In astrology, a Square is when two or more planets sit at a 90° angle to each other; the effect is that the planets in question struggle with each other. The potential here is that they come up with creative and effective solutions, but the risk is straight up conflict. Think of the planets involved in a Square aspect as potentially either stumbling blocks or building blocks to one another.

In regards to Venus Square Neptune, it’s time to watch out for ‘fake news’ and false idols. You may be gripped by a delusion that feels like the realest thing you’ve ever felt, or like you’ve received all the information that you need by way of instincts alone. Trust your heart, but don’t lose your head, ya’ll. This period is one in which you should feel your feels without jumping to conclusions or making connections that aren’t there.

This will be extra hard because of the Mars/Uranus transit. These two planets together are combustible, and will make it all too easy to fly off the handle. This energy will make you feel so extra that you’re likely to want to go off on someone or to impulsively burn something to the ground. The best use of this time is in exploration. Investigate your circumstances, impulses, and needs so that you can grow in directions that feed your soul.

🙏🏽

 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

When you’re not clear about what you want, it’s easy to get caught up in your ego. The ego on it’s own is not a bad thing, but it’s driven by power and dominion, not wholeness or happiness. Make sure that you’re not caught up in a compelling distraction that you’ll just have to untangle at a later date. A good way to do this is simple: don’t run from your past; run towards your future. Affirm that you’re rushing towards a thing, and once done, assess whether you really want it, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Your relationships are hecka confusing, and it’s complicated. When people tell you that they’re timely, you tend to believe them – even when they start showing up late for all of your plans. Identify the space between what people tell you about themselves and what you have IRL evidence of, Taurus. It’s important that you value your own experience over what people tell you about them, even if it hurts. Prioritize your own experience of the truth this week.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

How people perceive you is something that you can only sorta kinda control. This week you’re likely to run into misconceptions that others have about you as well as other social issues that mystify you, Twin Star. Instead of rushing to defend yourself, try to be interested in what led people to misunderstand you so that you have more insight into how your actions are being perceived. No Gemini is an island – let people help you better understand yourself this week.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Watch out, Moonchild, this week your ego is on the chopping block, and nobody likes that! No matter what it feels like in the moment, you don’t need to prove yourself to anyone. It takes a strong sense of self to know when to step up and when to bide your time, so make it your practice, my love. It’s not important that you demonstrate your feels, perspective, or validity unless it is; breathe through your kneejerk reactions before you follow them straight off a cliff, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Don’t spend money you don’t have, and don’t count on friendships you haven’t yet earned, Leo. This week, you run the risk of making some pretty big assumptions about what’s owed to you, and that can get you in a whole lot of trouble if you’re not careful. You’ve been going through a lot, but you’re not alone in that – everyone around you is going through intense changes, too. Make sure that you’re on the same page, and err on the side of over-communicating this week.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Giving people the benefit of the doubt is kind, but it’s not always deserved. Instead of expecting the best or the worst from people, release your expectations and just be present, Virgo. Notice where things are at in the here and now so that you can accept them. Once this is done, you can make a plan to change whatever you need to, but for now your awareness sans projections is sorely needed. It’s easiest to handle what you truly understand.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Your interpersonal connections are an important part of your career, in part because it’s always easier to feel connected to your work when you feel a bond with the people you’re working with. Be open to major changes and sudden reveals with the people you know, especially those you met through work. Things may not be stable right now, and that’s actually OK – just make sure that you’re not allowing for them to be stuck. Growth requires you to outgrow some things and people; be here for it, Libra.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

What you do matters, Scorpio. Your actions have reverberations that you can’t predict, so it’s imperative that when you do what you do, it’s with intention. You can’t control what’s happening around you, but you can manage your own behavior, and that’s exactly what you need to do. Don’t set standards for your self based on the worst person you know; set the bar high, and then rise to meet it, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

If you don’t make your boundaries clear to others, how are they supposed to respect them? Set your relationships up for success by giving them a fighting chance, ‘Tarius. This week, you’re likely to have to deal with some sort of miscommunications, and the worst thing you can do is make assumptions about what others have understood and what they want. Don’t assume that your experience is shared by the people you’re close to – no matter how much you think it should be.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Things are finally coming to a head, Cappy Mon Capitan, and that means it’s time to step up and deal. You can’t live your life for anyone but yourself, and this is one of those times when you’re on call to choose your compromises with care. Pursue long-term quality of life over short-term accolades or power. Your greatest rewards will come from a life well lived, not attention from people you barely even care about or from fancy toys. Don’t let fear or other people’s opinions hold you back now.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

How you live on the day-to-day is a foundational part of what your life ends up being about, Aquarius. Yours is not a sign that enjoys mindless repetition, but you don’t like change being forced on you either. Look to your entrenched habits this week to find the roots of your discontent. You may need to finally adjust to a situation that’s already changed, or it make be time to finally shake things up; either way, have the confidence to breathe life into your routines this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

If you’ve been overdoing it lately, you’re probably feeling extra tired right now. It’s time for you to manage your affairs in a more balanced way, Pisces. Saying yes to everything that you can is exciting, but it’s also bound to catch up with you eventually. If things slipped through the cracks, you’re gonna have to deal with them this week. Making mistakes is a part of life! Be graceful in the face of yours by owning them and moving on.

🌑 Look around you – when you see how much unrest is in the world these days, it’s unsurprising that the astrology is intense AF.

This week kicks off with the Sun in Cancer forming transits to the two most idealistic planets in the sky; it will form a trine to Neptune, and a square to Jupiter. This can be a time of heightened sensitivities in which you are able to act in the name of your greatest ideals. It’ll be easier to put the needs of your ego aside with these transits from the 4th-6th, but it’ll also be a time when it will be easy to get caught up in a delusion while believing it’s the real thing. Vet your opportunities well these days, and make sure your great ideas have roots to them.

The big news this week is the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 8th, while the Sun sits opposite Pluto, the planet whose motto is "heal or be destroyed." Full Moons are excellent times for clearing emo baggage, but the tender Moon is least comfortable in hard-hearted Capricorn than in any other sign. Face facts and confront the reality of your life as it is in the here and now. Capricorn wants reliable ground to stand on, while the Moon wants flow. Seek out places in your life that are stuck or stagnant, and get real about your role in them. Humility and guilt live on the same continuum, only guilt is a preoccupation with the self, while humility is responsibility without self-obsession.

Speaking of obsession, let’s talk about Pluto. This bish is going to sit on top of the Moon at 11:05pmPST on the 8th, and from the 8th-10th, we’ll be feeling the effects of the Sun opposition to Pluto. The Sun governs your sense of self and your identity, and Pluto is the energy for transformation, healing, and destruction. When Pluto touches the Sun, it tends to bring up shame, obsessions, resentments, and the feeling of being abandoned. This is a rough time for feeling things cleanly – your projections and stored up defenses are likely to color your view of whatever happens around now, and that makes for a seriously intense Full Moon.

Here’s a Pro Tip for making the most of this powerful shift: you’re not alone. We’re all in this together. Pluto in Capricorn is meant to bring about transformations of the powers that be, and that counts for your internal structure as much as it impacts hierarchies and global markets. We’re all interconnected; commit to offering the same latitude to others that you wish for yourself. Allow space for others and yourself to be in process, but know that you are not more entitled than anyone else to be a jerk, no matter how wronged you feel.

Be the change you want to see in your world, especially when it would be easiest to falter.

🏹

 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Put yourself out there, but know your limits, Aries! It’s easy to take chances when things are flowing your way, but it’s important to have balance. This week you run the risk of overdoing it in some way that impacts your work or personal life. This is going to bring on some serious feels to cope with, and emotions have a funny way of slowing everything down. Instead of forcing yourself to deal with things before you’re ready, try to create some space in your life. You deserve it.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

It’s so tempting to seek to make sense of your situation – or even your own feelings – by trying to understand other people’s feelings, thoughts, and actions. It’s kind of a fool’s errand though. When you deal with people who treat you in ways that feel wrong to you, it’s your job to be the friend you need. Take care of yourself, Taurus, and do it by embodying healthy limits with yourself and with others. If you’re acting with integrity, then things can only fall into their perfect place.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

The more invested you are, the more you have to lose. This week is not about making safe bets; it’s time to put yourself on the line for what you actually want. If you’ve wanted to do something but your fear of how much time or energy it will demand of you has stopped you, it’s time to get out of your own way, Twin Star. Grab a hold of yourself, and pursue what you want with your whole heart. Let go of the distractions that are holding you back from living a life you love.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

The Full Moon on the 8th in your relationship house is important for you, Moonchild. This week will bring up all the feels and then some as people in your life are likely to come to you with stuff you need to deal with. Instead of going on the defensive, make a point to listen to them. The only way to truly listen to someone else is with an open heart. Take the time to figure out your reactions after you’ve been able to digest whatever you learn, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

By week’s end you’re going to be confronted by some pretty meaningful triggers, Leo, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. Spend as much time as you can caring for yourself by investing in the activities and relationships that you most value. The greater your sense of inner balance, the easier it will be to deal with whatever memories, behaviors, or issues that come up from the 8th onwards. Look for opportunities to heal old wounds in the things that spark your feels this week.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

If you’re brave enough to step away from your tidy narratives of your life and you can also check in with what you really feel, you’ll end up with very different data. This week you’re on call to get connected to what your heart wants you to know. It may make things messier, but that’s where the magic happens. You don’t have to know why or what you ‘should’ do next; all you have to understand is this very moment. Show yourself some love, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

If you could control your life, you would organize it into a direction that seems awesome, obviously. The truth is that it’s a great thing that you’re not in control because you don’t have all the information that you need to see what’s best for you. Make sure that you don’t sell yourself short or settle before you really have to, Libra. Don’t rush your process so much that you miss out on what it has to offer you.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

If you assert yourself without serious forethought, it’ll have annoying repercussions this week, Scorpio. You’ve got to shift the way you participate; there’s a difference between stalking your prey and being patient. The former is an action with a clear intention attached to it, and the latter is a more receptive approach. Let things develop and reveal themselves to you in their own sweet time. For now, work on managing the thoughts and feels that come up for you when you’re not in control.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

There’s no way of avoiding consequences. All you can do is act in ways that reflect your integrity so that whatever they attract is true to you. You’re at a place in your life where what you do counts – especially in regards to your relationship with your soul. Follow your instincts, and make life-affirming choices, Sagittarius. Even when you have to compromise, strive to do it in ways that don’t compromise you. The way to live your best life is to be your best self, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

You may need to let someone go or just change a dynamic that you know isn’t working for you this week. The truth is that relationships are organisms; they grow or whither depending on their conditions. And just like all living things, they have a life span. Be graceful enough with the people you’re in relationship with to be honest about where things are at. You may need to change your expectations or your dynamic. Either way, don’t fear change, Pisces; it’s an essential part of growth.

What do we really know about the sign Cancer, other than that it’s got an unfortunate name and that it’s a hella emo sign? Cancer is strong. It’s a sign that’s represented by a hard-shelled crab, and while it may move towards things sideways, it comes equipped with weapons and can throw down if it has to. Planets in the sign of Cancer are concerned with their safety. The way that they assess it is by either referring back to their internal experience or checking in with what other people seem to think or feel – and this is where things get complicated. When dealing with heightened sensitivities, it’s wise to have a system of evaluating your own experience; otherwise, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by emotion and act defensively. This can cloud your judgment and encourage attachment to people, situations, or things that are not actually a part of your true security. This week, Cancer vibes are going to be strong.

Things are likely to be extra, so make sure you’re as grounded as you know how to be. On the 27-29th, chatty Mercury will be sitting on top of agro Mars. That’ll make everybody eager to jump to conclusions, feel hecka irritable, and quick to get defensive. Try to sit on your reactions and allow for more info to come through before you engage in fights, especially petty ones. On the 28-30th, Mercury will sit opposite Pluto, and that combo of these two transits can be downright explosive. You’re likely to obsess on things that make you feel bad, so be mindful of where you let your thoughts go. This is a great time for working hard to uncover the truth, but try to go at things directly, lovers.

If that wasn’t enough, it doesn’t end there; on the 1-3rd, Mars in Cancer will sit opposite Pluto in Capricorn. These two planets govern war and the need to be recognized as ‘right’. The combination can make you feel defensive and paranoid, so remember this: once a thing is done, it cannot be undone. Be humble in your strength, even if you feel like proving yourself at all costs. Other people may slime you with bad vibes, or you can spread around crappy juju if you’re not careful around these dates. The greatest challenge from the 28th-3rd is to act with integrity; don’t do as the biggest jerk in your circle would; act in ways that make you like the person you are.

By the time the 3-5th rolls around, Mercury in emo Cancer will be forming a square to Uranus in individualistic Aries. The truth will come out around this time, so you better hope that you were playing it clean earlier in the week. This energy can make it hard to sleep because it stimulates your nervous system, and it can generate anxiety for the same reason. This is a great time for innovation but a lousy one for stability, so don’t seek it! Strive to grow beyond your limitations, and especially beyond your fears this week.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Things are not meant to stay the same, and that’s a fact. Instead of holding on to what you thought you wanted, try being open to new ways of patterning your life. This week it’d be a mistake to get caught up in the details when there are big-picture shifts trying to take place in your life. Don’t hide from your own best interests by getting caught up in pettiness that you don’t need to be a part of. Focus your energies on getting where you want to go with your integrity intact, Aries.

Stay grounded so that you don’t get swept up by other people’s dramas or become an unsuspecting player in one. When you’re stressing and fearing the worst, it’s extra hard to see things clearly. Take the space you need to be able to manage your feels; you risk getting so caught up in what you fear that you miss the potential inherent in your situation, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

This week may find you irritable, overwhelmed, and done with it all. There are no wrong feelings, just difficult ones. Find healthy ways of off-gassing your anger and agitation so that you don’t get into power struggles masquerading as meaningful issues. If you’re gonna get into it (and you may just have to), don’t get caught up in the details. By sticking to the big picture, it’ll be easier to avoid picking fights. Be intentional about what you do and how you do it, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Pay close attention to your dreams this week; your sleep may be poor as your subconscious works out some heavy stuff. You’re likely to feel really flooded, and the way to handle it is to be willing to let go. Just because a thing is difficult doesn’t make it deep, Leo. It isn’t necessary to keep on reliving the same lessons – you’re allowed to walk away. Don’t process with people you don’t trust, and don’t waste your precious energy on played out dynamics this week.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

If you don’t have confidence in yourself, every part of life becomes difficult and hard to navigate. So here’s the million dollar question, Virgo: are you worthy of trust? Do you generally act in your best interests and in ways that reflect your values? Do you stand up for yourself when you feel wronged? Do you take yourself out of situations when they prove to be bad for you? If your answers are “no,” this is the time to start being a better friend to your lovely self.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

This is a time of great striving for you, Libra, and that’s not comfortable. When life is not stable, it’s tempting to assume the worst, but it’s not wise. Uncertainly and change are not synonymous with problems, my love. Be strong enough in your convictions that you can let people, situations, or attitudes go when they need to. In order to have a fantastic life, you don’t need things to come easily (though it would be nice); you need to be free.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Things are complicated in your relationships, but that doesn’t mean that there are any hard and fast rules about what should come next. Avoid the desire to come up with a tidy answer to make a messy situation less complicated. Life is complicated. You don’t need to have it all together or to know what comes next in order for you to be doing the right thing for you in this moment. Act with honesty, and invite the consequences that this incurs, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

If you allow other people’s beliefs and opinions to corrode your confidence, they better be pretty compelling. This week, others may harsh your mellow with their fearful expectations and negative projections. Your job is to parse out the Negative Norberts from those offering wise counsel. While you don’t get to know what will happen next, you do know how you want to participate in the here and now. Let fear guide you away from danger, not forge your life plans.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you don’t like the way things are, you’d better change them. The problem is that you’re unlikely to be able to see positive solutions when you’re obsessively running over everything that could go wrong. Repetitive thoughts and actions are like prayer, and they amplify whatever it is that you’re focusing on. Be careful of what you sew this week because your actions will be backed up with extra power. Make sure what you do is creative, or it’ll feel powerfully destructive, my love.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There’s only so much that you can do at once without feeling over it all and quitting. Pace yourself through everything that you have to get done this week, as it may feel like too much. There are heavy shifts happening deep within you, and if you aren’t present for them, you may just miss a golden opportunity to let go of baggage. There are some things that you’re totally done with but habituated around; prioritize the places and people that make you happy this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

This week is all about finding opportunity where you feel stuck. This may require you to step outside of your comfort zone or to take pains to better secure some parts of your life. Whatever happens, if your attitude is that of a person with a sign, a stand, and a bunch of lemons, you’ll be alright, Pisces. Preparation doesn’t require that you control things, only that you are a good steward for them to grow.

🌈

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 not realistic to expect your dynamics to be different outside of you when you’re indulging in the same internal merry-go-rounds.

🔮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.

GEMINI

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.
