:: Scalloped Hematite with Red Quartz ::

This week is gonna be hella intense, so grab your grounding stones (some of my favs are Hematite & Black Tourmaline),  and your centering practices, and get ready to work!

Mars is the planet of war, fornicating, and the ego, and it’s lit up like a house on fire this week. On the 22ndMars will form a square to transformative, obsessive, and vengeful Pluto. You seriously don’t want to F with Pluto/Mars. Tempers and defenses will be on high alert, and it would be easy to get into fights. The healthier your boundaries are, the easier it’ll be to know what you can engage with in a healthy way, versus when you need to walk away. Expect this day to be consumed by some agitation, and if it comes for you, approach that tension with grace or try to acknowledge the gift if it skips you over. The 23rd is the only day I’d recommend signing contracts or having heart-to-hearts this week, so if something’s gotta be said and it can’t be said around this day, wait till next week (and thank me later).

The Solar Eclipse on the 26th will trigger themes that came up with the last Lunar Eclipse (on February 10th). Between the two of them, we have an emo Eclipse sandwich that we’ll basically be chewing on until the next big Eclipse in August 2017. Solar Eclipses are New Moons, which are generally times ripe with potential. We can call in our energies and start a new cycle, have new perspectives, and bring magic into our lives. The intensity of an Eclipse creates unstable and unpredictable energy – which can be either fantastic or a shit show, depending on where it hits your chart. This week’s partial Solar Eclipse is in tender Pisces, the sign of compassion, empathy, idealism, and escapism. This eclipse, like all others, will kick off a cycle of approximately six months of development, so show up for whatever emerges – and emerge it will! During the Eclipse, Mars will be sitting on top of strong-willed and explosive Uranus. This will totally change the expected vibe of a Pisces New Moon into a more edgy event. Watch out for battles to prove or maintain your independence; these are more about pissing on your territory than expressing your needs. Embody your truth without shoving it down other’s throats, no matter how tempting it may be.

It’s not enough to know what you are; you need to know what you’re not, too. The 27th brings us our final kick in the fanny from the Red Planet as it sits opposite from expansive Jupiter. Jupiter is a gambler, but Mars hates to lose. The thing that Mars needs to get is that the only way to really lose is if you don’t learn. Growth happens through struggle and strife as often as it comes from falling in love or being healed by the cuteness of cats.

Be here for all of it.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

Pick your battles wisely, Aries. This week starts and ends with some intense energy that will make you feel defensive if you’re not careful. Make sure that you’re acting with integrity; just because the other person is being a jerk doesn’t mean that you get to be. How you handle your affairs during a Solar Eclipse is extra important, so don’t go blaming your circumstances or others for how you behave. This can be a deeply healing time if you’re strong enough to be humble, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Thinking you’re the worst is the same as thinking you’re the best; it’s thinking too much about yourself. A well-adjusted ego requires that you know this: you’re not better or worse than anyone. You may be better or worse at things, but your value as the person that you are is big and beautiful. You’re likely to get the exact trigger you need to help you heal the blocks to your self-worth this week. Don’t miss out by obsessing on whether or not you’re good enough.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

Get out of your own way, Twinny. The Solar Eclipse is the kick in the pants that you’ve been needing to get to the next level with your career. There’s energy for you to innovate some next steps, but it’ll be easy for you to get distracted. Don’t waste this opportunity! If you’re honest with yourself, you know that you’ve been stuck. Don’t let your fear of change stop you from taking much needed risks. Create the plan you need to live the life you want to be living.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Beware of le cray, Moonchild. This week will bring up lots if explosive energy, and it may come at you in the form of people on a rampage. Circumstances are pushing you to change, but that won’t happen if you get so embroiled in conflicts that are more about vibe than substance. If something really upsets you, make sure that you take stock of what that means about your own self first and foremost. Don’t let your desire for peace inhibit your need for change.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Sometimes the best way to hold on is to let go, Leo. This week’s Solar Eclipse marks an excellent time for beginnings, but for you it may be important to get clear about what isn’t working and confront what needs to end. Dismay has played a huge part in how you’ve been handling something that you care very deeply about. It’s time to confront your fears and get in the game, Leo style: if you’re in it, stay in it to win it, sweet one.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You don’t need to know the answer to chose a path forward. It’s simply not possible to be perfect, but what you can do is try. This week is intense and likely to make you super emotional. Instead of hiding out and avoiding human contact, try going the other direction; reach out to people, Virgo. Try to connect with others in a heartfelt way, even when you’re scared or insecure. The past is not guaranteed to repeat itself, especially if you do your part differently.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

When people come at you demanding attention, it’s easy to want to bolt, but it’s not always wise. This week, you’ve got to be accountable to your actions, Libra. Make sure that your actions line up with your intentions, even if it feels easier to react defensively. You can placate or blindly guard yourself, but neither of those actions come from an authentic place within you. Take the emotional risks necessary to stick around when the going gets rough.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

This week is likely to bring you the unexpected, and it’s not clear if that’s a good or a bad thing. Don’t expect the status quo at work; people are feeling riled up, and if you put yourself in the middle of dramas, they’ll stick to you. Let situations play out and people reveal themselves to you, Scorpio. If a situation feels unproductive and chaotic, you are free to excuse yourself from the room. Channel self-control when others are losing their cool, no matter how tempting it is to throw your hat in the ring.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

When you freak out, you act weird, and when you act weird, it makes other people freak out. This week there’s enough stress to go around, so don’t make matters worse by obsessing on everything. Your best move is to slow down, ‘Tarius. If you rush to fix things, you’re likely to make them worse. You don’t need to analyze and understand everything that’s happening in order to handle it in a healthy way. Tend to your feelings before you try to fix yourself or your relationships, my love.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You have every right to be mad. It’s what you do with it that’s up for debate. This week will bring you challenges but also the tools to cope. When you’re overwhelmed with emotion, it’s easy to let yourself act out or get paralyzed, but neither helps your cause. Let your feels motivate you to get organized, Cappy. Make a list of the things that are upsetting you, and for each item on that list, write a corresponding action you can take daily or weekly to improve your situation. Now’s the time, Kitten.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Gossip will bite you in the fanny if you dish it out, my friend. Everyone is on edge, and this is not the time to talk trash about people, even if it feels innocent enough. More than anything, you need to manage your anxieties, Aquarius. This isn’t a great time for repressing your fears because there’s just too much going on. Find three constructive things that you can do to yield greater calm in your life this week that don’t require you to totally check out.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

This week can mark a magical time for you, Pisces. The New Moon Solar Eclipse is happening in your sign, making this an especially fertile time for you. Invest serious inquiry into what you want, even if you feel locked in to where you are. You’re always allowed to change your mind; in fact you may just have to in order to get where you want to be. This is a time to keep focused on your big picture best interest, because that’s where your happiness lives. Don’t let the sacrifices you need to make today stop you from creating the tomorrow that you desire.

:: Blue Kyanite ::

The Sun shifts from dynamic Aquarius to super-sensi Pisces this week, and that means that we’re gonna be feeling the shifts that have taken place over the last month way more energetically. Get ready for heightened empathy and a potential slowing down of vital energies. The vibe is hella deep during Pisces Season, so it’s wise to let yourself gestate instead of jumping to conclusions.

Take a breath and regroup this week. Mercury – the planet of your mind, attitudes, and changeability – is super active this week. As expansive Jupiter, energizing Mars, and innovative Uranus engage with the chatty planet, we’ll be able to make connections and come to greater understanding about whatever came up with last week’s Eclipse/Full Moon. Figure out your feels, loves! None of this will happen without your care and effort, of course. Support your mental health as a way to sustain your emo and psychic wellness.

In efforts of finding some inner peace so you can carve out greater clarity, let me introduce you to my good friend Blue Kyanite. This stone is the perfect tool for calming and clearing your mind, so you can solve problems.  It’s excellent for supporting your meditation practice because it helps to promote tranquility and to strengthen your psychic mind. Seek balance and composure this week to support the inner conditions your need to sustain you. Be the change you want to see in the world, bb. 

In the words of Warsan Shire, by way of Queen Yoncé: If we are going to heal, let it be glorious.

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

When you’re more fixated on what you want to avoid than what you’re trying to attract into your life, it’s easy to get messy results. Making good decisions requires you to have clear motives. This is a great week for making connections, figuring out plans, and sharing ideas with others. The thing to watch out for is getting too scattered, Aries. Make sure that whatever you bring into your life is of high quality and not just more of the same.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

It’s the things that freak you out most that are begging for your attention. This week you may feel like avoiding something or someone for fear of having upsetting dynamics play out. ‘What you resist will persist’, my friend. Be brave and deal directly with things, even if you are overwhelmed by your feels. The only way for your life to change is if the way you deal with it changes first. Shift your approach to get a new outcome. Don’t let your fears stop you, Taurus.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s real hard to be an adult sometimes. There are so many things that you’re responsible for, and the more you care about your life, the higher the stakes are. This week, try to find your stride as you make decisions and the plans needed to follow through with them. It’s easy for your energies to get scattered when you’re spread too thin or don’t have a clear plan of action. Break your big picture plans down into bite-sized pieces, and get to work, step by step, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

If you think everything is fine and someone you care about has the problem, like it or not it’s gonna be your problem too. This week it’s important to listen to other people’s feelings, even if it’s a total bummer. You don’t get to decide for others what they should feel or how your behavior impacts them. All you have power over is what you do and how you respond to the consequences. Have grace with interpersonal upsets this week, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

It can be hard out here for a Leo. Sometimes you’re overwhelmed by your worst-case scenarios, and it’s hard to move on from that kind of thinking, regardless of how badly you want to. It’s hard to change your focus and think of the positives. This week you’re on call to honor your feelings, no matter what they are. Carve out time to be where you’re at and then keep on keeping on, friend. You will make the most of your life by honoring all your parts – not just the fun ones.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You don’t have to secure world peace or pay off your whole mortgage this month. Everything doesn’t have to get done right away in order for you to be on track with getting it done in its right time. This week is testing your ability to stay present in the presence of pressing stress and pressure. Take a first step, Virgo. Do what you can in a healthy way today, and then take a break. You don’t need to be perfect; you only need to keep moving.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Don’t ignore your instincts, Libra. Find a quiet place to get grounded, and take stock of what you’re doing and what your instincts have to say about it. Try not to worry so much about the details of your story, and get connected to the big picture instead. Investigate your choices and the direction that they’re pointing you in so that you can come to peace with them or make changes. Love yourself enough to put your own inner knowing ahead of what anyone else says this week.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Your sign is known for being able to hold onto a grudge, and that reputation didn’t come out of nowhere, Scorpio. Don’t punish yourself for making a mistake or not doing or feeling what you think you should. Life is hard enough without you being mean to yourself on top of it. This week, find one thing to focus on that you can make objectively positive steps forward with. Focus on small successes that help you adjust your attitude and ease your way, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You’re strong and capable and full of life-giving energy, ‘Tarius. You’re also pretty averse to feeling pain when you can avoid it. This week you can use your Super-Sadge-Power to help you feel good – even when things aren’t so good – or to valiantly confront your problems. You may have to make changes that have some scary repercussions, but check your fears; don’t maintain the status quo at all costs. Let go of what isn’t working, so you can let something better in.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You’ve gotta go through it to get to it, Cappy. This week you’re moving through some rocky inner terrain and that kinda bites. There’s a bigger picture to your problems, though, and it can bring you meaning if you’re willing to look for it. You’re here – in this place, at this time – for a reason. Find your calling, the thing that you feel that you can bring to the world, your community, or the feral cats in your yard. You’re here, so get to work, my love.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

It’s time to take a stand, Aquarius. You’re a smarty-pants and can make sense of just about anything, but that doesn’t mean you believe in what you’re saying. This week, your mind is firing on all cylinders (yay!) and you will make the most of it if you can get decisive. Whether you need to make decisions, follow through with plans, or touch base with others, this is a time for making connections that reflect your beliefs and values. Rise to the challenge, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Your fears can make you want to escape into a fantasy world sometimes, and who could blame you? Life is hard and times are tough. The problem with escapism is that the world full of its problems is waiting for you when you come back from your vacation. Don’t delay, Pisces. This week, you can and should deal head-on with your problems, no matter how daunting they seem.

There’s so much going on right now, but the thing to watch out for is this week’s Lunar Eclipse at 22° Leo on the 10th. Lunar Eclipses are basically Full Moons on crack – they’re hella intense and bring up dynamics that have been developing for the last six months. They help us reset emotionally, but it takes real effort. Reflect on what was going down about six months ago, and connect it to whatever themes are up for you now. The effects of an eclipse often take a while to fully present themselves, so be patient and kind as it plays out, lover, and keep this gem in mind: emotions are not static. They ebb and flow, and like the ocean, they reveal something new on the shore whenever they do. Don’t seize on the first feeling you have, and let things play themselves out a bit this week.

The Full Moon Eclipse is meant to confront you with the emotional part of your reality, so whether it’s gorgeous or it sucks, it’s important for to you pay attention to what gets revealed about you, your relationships, and life in general, Kitten.

As an added bonus, this emo flux is in Leo, a sign that loves attention, drama, and lurv – and all just in time for Valentines Day! Its energies are courageous in the truest sense of the word – they’re brave and heartfelt and full of fire.  The trouble with these energies is that they’re so self-focused that you might blow past the obvi and miss out on what’s really going down; Leo is for sure the Rabbit and not the Turtle, but with everything going on in this crazy world, its important to pace yourself.  

There’s a huge difference between attention and love, and the crap side of Leo is that she doesn’t always know the difference. You’re not here to have smoke blown up your backside. Let love – self-love, romantic, platonic, or Universal love – transform you. Don’t settle for a love that lacks meaning. Embrace transformation and the healing that comes with it.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

To help you reach your highest good, this Lunar Eclipse is going to confront you with your fear of losing control, Aries. The truth about love is that who you direct your love towards and what you’re willing to accept in return is more about you than the object of your affection. Let the power of love transform you this week, even if you have to leave some habit or relationship behind in order to do it. Honor your feels even as they bring you to some unchartered territory, my love.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Deep themes in your innermost personal life are hella up for you this week. Circumstances are going to push you to look at where, how, or with whom you find home. It’s time for you to confront some long-developing truth that doesn’t quite fit into what you thought you wanted for your life. Be open to powerful and sweeping changes, even if you don’t know what will come of them, Taurus. Uncertainty is an important phase on the way to a more perfect stability.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

Sometimes you’ve got to pick a side, which is really hard for you because you can see things from every angle! This week’s passionate and fiery Lunar Eclipse will set you off, and if you’re unsure of what direction you wish to be pointed in, that could spell chaos. Focus on no more than three big things this week – something for you, something for us, and something for them. Find peace in the act of getting the things that mean the most to you done, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

Your ruling planet is being eclipsed by the Sun, so you should be ready for your feels to be extra sensi, Moonchild. This week is not the time to pretend that everything’s OK when it’s not. Don’t let your desire to please or appease others make you abandon yourself. This Full Moon, try to avoid any impulse to be passive aggressive instead of clear and direct. You don’t need permission to stand up for what you believe in, even if it’s unpopular; honor your limits and your values this week.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Take stock of your life, Leo. You’ve been working really hard on yourself –and you’ve come really far – but there so much work ahead of you too. The Moon is full in your sign but once a year, and this one is an extra intense Lunar Eclipse. Use its potent energies to get real about where you’re at. If you engage in radical self-acceptance, you’ll have to own the parts that you’re not super proud of, but that’s OK; replace shame and guilt with humility and compassion this week.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

This can be a really magical time for you, Virgo. You’ve been holding on to so much junk that’s bogging you down, and half of it isn’t even yours. Believe it or not, instead of tracking all the ins and outs of your stories, you can actually just let it all go. You’ve got all the data you need; now you just need to make some decisions. What are you willing to do about it? If you continue to participate in situations that you know don’t work for you, that’s on you, buddy. Take a chance and move on this week.

Where do you belong, Libra? This week may bring up some really upsetting stuff, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You’ve been changing in small and big ways, and it was only a matter of time before it caught up with you. Allow yourself to get shook up so that you can reset your perspective to a place that’s more true to who you’ve become and to where you want to be. You’re strong and it’s time that you access the resilient and powerful parts of yourself and share them with the world.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Don’t confuse your will with your innermost wisdom, Scorpio. You’re going to be presented with a chance to let go of control and let things happen, but you’ve got to get out of your own way first. Be open to opportunities to expand how you experience and share love – whether it’s with your friend, yourself, or a stranger. It’s easy to shut down and get weird when you’re frightened, but it’s a missed opportunity. If you always got what you wanted, you’d be in serious trouble, my friend. Let light in from foreign sources this week.

This week is time to engage in some big-picture thinking. What you want and the lengths you’re willing to go to get it are vitally important. No matter what it feels like, not having what you want isn’t evidence of never getting it, ‘Tarius. The problem spots in your life are simply pointing you to where you need to work smarter and harder, my love. Ask for help wherever you can get it, and listen carefully to the answers. You don’t need things to move quickly – you need them to move in the right direction.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you’re fixated on avoiding the worst case scenario, how are you going to know when something good happens? You’re bound to have plenty of things to be worried about, but worry won’t help you, Capricorn. You know who you are, on a deep and solid level; don’t lose sight of that because that self-knowledge is something you can call on for strength. When you feel overwhelmed and emo, focus on the things that you have going for you in the here and now to refuel, so you can do what you need to do.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You know that pretty much all of your relationships have changed, Aquarius, but you’re not exactly sure yet what it all means yet. This week, allow others to reveal themselves to you before you immediately react. Strive to act in integrity with your own values and sense of right and wrong, regardless of what the other person is doing. If you’re side of the road is clean, it’ll be way easier to see theirs clearly. Assess where to go from there, my love.

History is the greatest teacher we have, but it’s no fortuneteller. While you can’t know what’s ahead of you, still you must persist, Pisces. The fiery Lunar Eclipse on the 10th is a call for you to embrace the motivating and empowering parts of your ego. You’ve been working hard on yourself, and you’ve made it this far. Call on your inner fire to boost your vitality and change your life. Follow through, even when you feel intimidated this week.

This week kicks off with celestial busy bodies Jupiter and Mercury clashing in the sky, and that ups the risk for proselytizing or jumping to conclusions. It will bring us the energy we need to confront the truth and stand up for what we believe in. The trouble is that if everyone is standing up and speaking their truth at once, it can be chaos. The world is changing, and quickly. It’s important to maintain your wellness on all levels if you’re going to be right with yourself and able to enact the change you want to see in the world.

Listening is an important part of effective communication, so challenge yourself to take in differing perspectives this week. Being vocal and visible with your ethics and politics is hella important, now more than ever.

Romantic Venus enters assertive Aries, and processy Mercury enters inventive Aquarius this week, so connections will come fast and can be agents for healing change. The camaraderie between you and others is an essential part of your emotional and mental health, so stay connected to others and interested in how they do things differently than you. Our differences make us stronger if we are able to learn from them.

Guided by wisdom within you, it’s time to step into the light; listen closely to the actions as well as the words of others. Hone these abilities as best you can because the changes that are coming are like a tsunami; they’re crashing in fast and hard.

This week is a great time for reflecting, but that’s not what you're most likely to do. Watch out for being a know-it-all. Even if you’re right as rain in a dry spell, no one wants to be preached at. Let the truth inspire your imagination and direct your plans, and try not to satiate the desire to force others to drink your special-made Aries-tastic Kool-Aid. Stay emotionally present when people don’t agree with you. Once you’ve said your piece, it’s your turn to be an excellent listener.

How well you’ve put your life together is a debatable topic, Taurus. It all depends on your metrics. If all you do is consider the external checkpoints of success, you may be dealing with lowkey anxiety while having lost track of why or where it’s coming from. Pretend that you’re your own best friend, and give yourself the advice you think you really need. How can you be happier with the conditions of your life?

Watch your spending! If you have a tendency to shop your feels away, you can expect to feel like you just have to get that fake fur centerpiece, but trust that you don’t. Stay with the restless parts of your feelings that make you want to go out and collect. What you really need is some meaningful time with your friends or Dear Diary to get deep about what’s been going on inside of you. It’s time to unpack your issues, not add more distractions.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You have the right to think or say whatever you want, Libra, but so do others. This week you may be feeling uncharacteristically mouthy, and while I like it, others may not. Make sure that you don’t say your piece with defensiveness or without first checking to see if the other person is open to hearing it. This is a great time for getting to the heart of matters, but you may find other messy parts while you’re in there. Don’t be scared of the truth.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You’re likely to have some feels come up about your lifestyle this week, Scorpio, and it’s right on time. Take an honest look at your work/life balance; are you able to enjoy or get value from the things that you devote most of your time to? If not, this is the time to confront what isn’t working and to visualize a plan. If you’re making compromises with your life, strive to have them be intentional and purposeful. This is your one life to live, and you deserve to do it right.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

There’s a fine line between excitement and anxiety, and sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart. The chatter in your head may be extra all over the place, and it’s important that you take the time to find your center. If you indulge nervous thinking, it will leave you feeling exhausted and confused, which will only make matters worse. Use your body as a tool for finding calm: hit the gym, dance till you drop, or get out in nature. Connect with the material to find peace this week.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You may be feeling extra chatty this week, and that’s awesome. In fact, it’s a great time for connecting with friends, doing any kind of networking, or making plans. The only downside is that you may be so busy having genius thoughts that you miss out on the little things. Pursue big-picture thinking, but then rein it in, Cappy. Make sure to listen closely to what others are saying and to double check your work, especially if you’re feeling extra excited or distracted.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

When you choose to invest in something (or someone), you’re doing it because you believe it’ll make you happy. Buyer’s remorse is real though; you may think you want something and then when you get it, feel burdened instead of helped. This week you may have a bit of that to contend with, but look for the bigger picture at play under the surface. Investigate your ideas about happiness, Aquarius. Better understand what you think is possible, how you go about getting it, and what you do once you’ve got it.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

The world is in a place of tumult, and it’s destabilizing for everyone, but especially for those like you who are sensitive to the energies of other people. Be mindful of who you spend time around this week. You’re in need of serious self-care, and if someone is contributing to your feeling of shakiness, you don’t need to spend time with them and feel worse. Don’t wait until you hit a wall to enact your boundaries. Honor your need for calm this week.

:: Opal ::

Just when you thought things were ready to calm down: supriiiiise, they’re not! This week there’s a New Moon in heady Aquarius. New Moons are usually a wonderful time to open up to possibility and mark the start of a new cycle. This one, not so much. Tenderhearted Venus will take a swift kick in the gut from hardheaded Saturn, and it’s likely to make for some defensive and sad feels. This is a great time to get clear about what you are and what you ain’t, and gurl, if you’ve been letting someone else define you, it’s gonna hurt. By the time Mercury catches up with Pluto, you’ll have plenty to obsess over, but whatever you do, don’t pick fights. The energy from the 27th-1st is going to be too wild to tame, so investigate, gestate, and meditate for best results. Ask yourself if the reason you’re pressing for answers is because you want to avoid the stress of sitting with things as they are rn or if you actually think you can change things up. When in doubt, wait 72hrs before saying your piece because this week, motive means everything. Keep yours squeaky clean, bbs.

  

ARIES

March 21-April 19

There’s no value in trying to push past obstacles this week, Aries. Allowing yourself to react on impulse is going to make you feel all kinds of ways, but none of them will be terribly comfortable. The forces in motion in your life are powerful, and the best approach is to cultivate a big-picture plan. Getting caught up in the details will be satisfying, like picking off a scab, but it won’t help you to heal. Pace yourself, and when you can’t do that, at least don’t let your fears guide you.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week’s New Moon is a solid time to up your professional game, Taurus. Carve out time to do the things that require either concentration or innovation, whichever feels more important for the tasks at hand. If you follow through with your goals, you can make meaningful headway that will breathe fresh life into your projects, so don’t waste this opportunity. If you are suffering from the doldrums, don’t worry about it too much; let work serve as a distraction for a few days, and your heartaches should ease.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

It’s easy to connect with people when your role is clear but what about in emotionally intimate situations or when you don’t know if the other person likes you? This is when you have a tendency to escape into the fun house of your head and stop actually connecting. Closeness and connection happen when you show up, Twin Star. The only way to get intimate this week is by stomaching the discomfort of the unknown. There’s nothing to figure out; just show up.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

This week may bring up some seriously obsessive thoughts and the bad vibes that come up with them. The truth is complicated and messy, but it’s still true. Don’t act like you are blameless when you know you had a role to play in your broken situations. Be humble and own your part, even if the other person is more wrong. There’s a serious risk of confrontation, especially later in the week, so be prepared to show up instead of just defend your position, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

What do you want for yourself, Leo? Do you want to be at the job you have? Do you want to keep spending time with your same group of people? You have choice, even though it’s easy to fall into a lifestyle that perpetuates itself. Use this New Moon energy to get clear about what partnerships and collaborations you’re aligning yourself with. If you don’t like your options, it’s time to seek out new ones. You can’t get what you want if you don’t make a beeline for it.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Love is so complicated; you think that things are going one way, and then people go and do something that take them in a whole different direction. The problem is that relationships involve people – pesky, unpredictable, nonsensical humans. Gah! They go left when you think they ought to go right, and it’s a huge mess. So let it be, Virgo. Accept what others are showing you of themselves because that’s the truth. If you can’t accept the truth, that might mean you’re the nonsensical one. It’s time to get real, my love.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

It’s hard to be direct about what you’re feeling all the time; sometimes you don’t know for sure what’s going on inside of you (indecision), and other times it feels too risky to rock the boat. This week brings with it some choppy waters, and trying avoid that will be ill-fated. Confront the uncomfortable, Libra. Go for authenticity over accommodation. When it’s tempting to be fake, you always have a choice to placate or show up. Choose wisely.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

When you're in a state of anxiety, you can’t hear the voice of your inner wisdom over all that mind chatter. Your top priority this week should be to get some calm. You’re unable to see all of your choices from a panicked place, so bring it down a notch, Scorpio. For support, lean on the people and resources that you have access to. How you take care of yourself is an important part of your long-term wellness; commit to the highest quality of life that you can create this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You don’t need to convince anyone else of your perspective in order to substantiate it. It may feel that if you explain it correctly, people will have to see it your way and agree with you, but it’s not so, ‘Tarius. Your feels and perspective are valid because they’re yours – not because they’re ‘right’. Don’t get into power struggles as a result of not being able to accept the very real differences between yourself and others, no matter how tempting you may find it this week.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You are likely too find yourself preoccupied by intense thoughts and ghosts from your past. The worst things you can do is to either indulge obsessive thinking or pretend it isn’t happening at all. Try and understand what’s going on for your heart underneath all that stressing, Cappy. It’s possible that someone will come your way with a truckload of drama, and there’s not much you can do about that beyond how you respond. Be the bigger person this week.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

It’s super vulnerable to not know where you’re at. This week you’re likely to feel all over the place and long for a clearer sense of purpose. Instead of forcing an answer that you just don’t have, be open to seeing new sides of your problems. The New Moon in your sign on the 27th may shed light on stuff, but it’s not likely to be a spotlight. Allow space for your instincts to fill in the blanks by creating downtime to retrospect in, Aquarius.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

It’s not mean to say no to someone, Pisces. You’re going through a crash course in boundaries, and you need to experiment with what your limits are and how to express them. Through this process you may step on toes or cross your boundaries, but don’t worry – it’s OK to make mistakes! If you allow your fear of being wrong to stop you from finding new and better ways to be right, you’re limiting yourself unnecessarily. Be brave in the name of self-love.

How do you deal with frustration? Do you shut down and act like you don’t care when you secretly wanna cut a bish? Do you take it out on others? Well, this week you’re going to get opportunities to deal with frustrated or blocked energy in new ways or to hit the same place on an old wall. Action-oriented Mars is forming a square to obligation-oriented Saturn, and the result should be a boner-killer for everyone. The first half of the week is a great time to tackle something that required concentration, like your taxes or cleaning out your closet. It’s not so much good for spontaneity or creativity, but don’t worry – it’ll only last a few days! By midweek we get a respite from all this intensive energy. Make good use of it, lovers!

 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

You can’t always do what you wanna do, and that is terrible news for a fire sign. This week will test your sense of potential. Your vision for what you want is being obscured by the immediacy of what you can’t do or have, and it’s giving you all kinds of bad feelings. How you respond to this week’s frustrations is very important. Don’t get carried away when all you really need to do is break your issues up into bite sized pieces. You can’t get to everything, so pick just a couple things and do them fabulously.

April 20-May 20

You need your friends to run through things with you and to give you perspective. The trouble happens when your sounding boards are too preoccupied with their own stuff to show up for you. If you’ve been self-involved lately, this is a good time to step up and be there for your fam. If you’re going through your own hard times, don’t make it worse on yourself by assuming that other people have sinister motives. If you have to choose between Mother Teresa or Sherlock Holmes, go full Mama T this week.

Every time that you get knocked down you have the chance to pick yourself up again. The question is whether you need to get up and fight or just stand your ground. This week the pressure is on. If you’re willing to work hard and stay focused, you can make meaningful headway with something that’s been stalled. If you get distracted, or worse – if you do nothing, you may have some depressive vibes to contend with. Get up and get to it, Twin Star.

The weight of your worries is taking it’s toll on you. You’ve got big ideas, but you haven’t been able to implement them at the level you’ve been wanting to. You may only need to make subtle adjustments to get dramatic results. Don’t confuse your process with the outcome, Moonchild. Where you’re at right now is just that – the present moment is not necessarily evidence of what the future will look like. Look at the problems that are holding you back, and diligently work on them this week.

You can play games with the best of them, but what does winning look like, really? If you successfully manipulate others, are you getting your needs met or just setting a sad little trap for yourself? Don’t confuse getting what you want from people with getting your needs met, Leo. While you can probably convince people to do stuff, they have to be pretty bad at reading you for you to get away with it. Knowing others better than they know you is a lonely place to be. Choose real over easy this week.

VIRGO

You need a break from the world, Virgo. The trouble is that you’re inclined to ignore your feels and push yourself extra hard just at the moment when you need to lay your burden down. If you can’t take a time-out, try to use the magic and healing power of breathing. I know it sounds simple, but oxygenating your big, beautiful brain will go a long way towards helping you parse out your options and cope with your feelings. Make sure you’re taking the time to breathe, especially when you’re in a rush this week.

You can only know what you know, Libra. Instead of assuming that your story about what’s happening at work or home is the uncontested truth, stay open to what you don’t know. It’s not a great time for a heart-to-heart until after the 21st, so leading up till then, be honest with yourself about your complicated perspective. Have you been consistent with others? It’s human to be messy; it’s time to get real with yourself about the whole picture of it.

Where you put your money is a reflection of what you care about. This week you may be feeling extra tight, or you may have your sights fixed on buying something that’s just out of reach. How you manage your resources is a big deal and doesn’t just hit your pocketbook, but you sure feel it when it does. Balance your finances or at least educate yourself on how you’ve been handling them in the past year.

People can be so annoying with their big ideas and their slow ways. When they came up with the expression that you “can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink,” they were thinking of you, ‘Tarius. Don’t try to convince others that your way is the ‘right’ way because you’ll be met with resistance at every turn this week. Tolerate the differences between you and others, even if they seem crazy. All you can truly control is your own life, so make choices that work for you and let others do the same.

You may feel like you’re on call to doctor some situation or relationship in your life, but your bedside manner could use a little work.

You’re not as stuck as you feel, Aquarius. You’re super flexible when changes happen on your terms, but it’s a lot harder to go with the flow when it’s not in your direction. You’re unlikely to be able to read the motivation of others clearly this week, so don’t get hung up on trying to figure that stuff out. Once you figure out what your situation is all about, get yourself motivated. Have enough faith in yourself to act on inspiration instead of fear.

Don’t get cocky! This week kicks off with a Sun square to overzealous Jupiter, and it’s effects can go either way for you. Last week brought up hella intense issues, and this week it may be tempting to get self-righteous or defensive about whatever stance you took. Look for opportunities to expand yourself and not just to be “right”. If you waste energy trying to prove yourself, you’re really just being overly concerned with other ppl’s opinions. The Full Moon in emo Cancer hits with a splat on the 12th, and with it comes a soupy and romantic conjunction from Venus and Neptune. Make magic that expands the things you most value! Feels are gonna be hella up, and that can be transformative or exhausting. Avoid making proclamations of love before you know what you’re in for, or worse, lower your standards for like. Themes of boundaries and proportion are in the air, so don’t freak out if you feel hella done and over other ppl’s vibes. This is a bad time for gossip or telling secrets ‘cause things will have a weird way of leaking out. Cultivate compassion and kindness for yourself and the people around you this week, whatever that needs to look like.

We have a funny way of seeing what we want to see. This week is great for scheming and dreaming, but you run the risk of imagining that your fantasies are real. If you’re dreaming about roses and buttercups, that’s not too bad, but if you’re stuck thinking you’re the worst or that you’ll never get what you truly want, your magical thinking will backfire bigly.

Get ready for a super emo week, Moonchild. It’s the one time of year that your ruling planet, the Moon, is full in your sign, and that means that the feels will be strong within you. If you allow yourself to get caught up in the story of your feelings, you’re likely to feel like a victim, but it’s very rare that a person doesn’t have options. Take stock of how you’re choosing to participate and whether you’re making mountains of molehills. There doesn’t need to be a reason for your feelings – sometimes you’re just full.

This is an excellent week to get in touch with repressed feelings and to release old wounds. You’re likely to want to rush impetuously ahead and tend to your life, but you risk missing details and taking on more than you can handle. Do some emo work on yourself inspired by the Full Moon on the 12th by taking a slightly belated look back at 2016. You went through a lot and it changed you; let go of your attachments to the suffering you endured last year so that you don’t unintentionally bring it with you into ’17.

It’s either you or the other person, but someone for sure is overreacting this week. The problem is that feelings don’t always follow reason. Don’t try to make sense of feeling off-kilter before first regaining balance. This week you can try to change how you feel, but if it’s coming from a cray place within you, you’re likely to go about the shift in a cray way. Seek balance when you feel off, and don’t let people or circumstances push you into dealing with them before you’re good and ready.

Mercury quits it’s Retrograde motion on the 8th(yay!). We won’t have to worry about random computer problems and miscommunications anymore, but it’s wise to double check your work from the past several weeks. This week is gonna test your flexibility and honor; Uranus forms a square to the Sun, and Pluto conjoins it. What that all means in English is that everyone is likely to be feeling defensive. Watch your impulses because no matter what it feels like in the moment, you can chill for a minute and get perspective before you go “fixing” things. This week will bring up themes of power and powerlessness, and it’s when you feel threatened that it’s easiest to justify bad behavior. Don’t be a dick, lover. Strength without compassion and humility may help you get ahead, but true leadership requires a full heart. Rise up 🎈.

When people act out, do you try to fix them, or do you take their behavior personally? If you do either, you’re likely to go deep into some relationship drama this week, my love. The cultivation of healthy boundaries isn’t something you do in your Dear Diary or in chill times; it’s when you catch yourself being reactive that you most need them. How you respond to problems is a reflection of your emotional maturity. Act in ways that reflect your integrity and not your situation this week.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Your body is a temple, and if you know anything about temples, they’re supposed to be treated with reverence. This week your body is trying to communicate something to you, and it’s your job to listen closely. Your meat suit is not separate from you; it’s not just a car to shuttle your mind around. It’s your closest ally and longest companion on the earth. Start 2017 off by listening to what it has to tell you and heeding it’s wise counsel.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Sex is a lot of things; it’s a form of self-expression, acts preformed out of desire, and a way to get close to another person. For some, it’s just an adult handshake while for others it’s only for procreation. What you believe about sex and what you need to feel happy and whole in your sexuality should ideally line up. This week you’re meant to embrace your sexuality, whatever that means for you. Shake off shame, and honor your desires and needs, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Matters of the heart are tugging at you, and it’s time to go deep with them, Libra. Whether you are meant to confront a dynamic that’s integral to your closest relationships or you need to take stock of ways you’ve been acting that aren’t in line with how you want to be, this week is all about confrontation. Don’t blindly defend yourself or the way things are, no matter how scared you are of transformation. This year is going to bring with it all kinds of changes; be a part of it.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Watch your mouth because you can’t take back what you say. While you’re at it, watch that eye roll too because while nobody knows your pain like you do, they can read your less-than-subtle Scorpio side-eye. Know yourself well enough to know the difference between a traumatic event and a triggering one. They’re equally problematic but require different remedies. Your first reaction may not be your most trustworthy one, so channel chill into your dealings with others this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

No matter what the details of your situation, make no mistake that your values are being tested, ‘Tarius. Instead of taking things at face value, look at what your situation reflects back to you about yourself. This week you can expect big-deal intense energies impacting everyone, and it’ll harsh your New Year mellow if you let it. Pick your battles wisely; if you observe rather than jump in the ring, things are likely to work themselves out on their own.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Strap yourself in ‘cause you’re in for quite a ride. This week the intense and compulsive energies of Pluto will meet the Sun in your sign, and all hell’s about to let loose. Old family patterns are emerging with people that you’re close to so that you can heal them. Don’t put your head in the sand and pretend it’s not happening or go on a fixing spree. Understand how you got here – what did you do and what did you consent to that brought you this dynamic? That’s the most direct route to healing it.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Your subconscious mind is working overtime, and that will either facilitate breakthroughs or make you feel like you’re breaking down. Pay special attention to your dreams, Aquarius. You may find some prophetic stuff popping up in them by the end of this week, or you may feel like your intuitive senses are extra sparkly. If you’re trying to make a change or figure out something that’s been eluding you, this is an excellent time for getting ahead of it.

If you try to make people like you, you’re going about things all wrong. When your attention is fixated on what others think or feel about you instead of your own feelings and thoughts, you get into a demoralizing mess. This week will bring you intense relationship vibes, but that doesn’t need to be a bad thing. Let others have whatever feelings they do, and only focus on being the most authentic and forthright version of yourself that you can be, my love.

Happy 2017!

You may wanna party like it’s 1999, but don’t get it twisted, it’s 2017 and things are weird AF. We ring in the New Year with Mars sitting on top of Neptune, a Mercury Retrograde, and a Jupiter opposition to Uranus. All this changeable energy will call to question what’s real, truly desirable, and sustainable.

Play safe and keep your head on your shoulders this weekend, lovers!

ARIES

March 21-April 19

The New Moon on the 28th is coming just in time, Aries. Pull out Ye olde pen and paper, and write out what you want to bring into your life for the New Year. This is the time to align with what you want instead of allowing yourself to obsess on what others are doing to bug you. This weekend may find you feeling extra exhausted, but don’t worry that it’s a sign of the year to come; focus on getting right with yourself, and everything else will fall into place.

April 20-May 20

Your relationships are super important to you, but you need to figure out  what you have to give and not just what you want. Instead of trying to make people love you, take a breath and look at how you really, truly feel about them. If you come from a place of fear, then all you’ll feel compelled to do is convince others to stick around (before you even identify if you want them to). Honor your feelings by checking in with your own inner guidance this week, Taurus.

It’s an excellent time to dream big, Twin Star. Look back at your year and the goals you set for yourself last January. You’ve come a long way and may have gotten more than you feel like you have. The problem is that when you set the wrong goals for yourself, achieving them doesn’t feel that great. Channel the wisdom you’ve acquired from your failures and successes, and apply them to your vision for your New Year.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

When you’re feeling overwhelmed and upset, the worst thing to do is try to ‘handle things’. This week is going to bring you a rollercoaster of emotions, and whether you’re high or low, it’s wise to use the same strategy; don’t resist reality. Accept your feels, your circumstances, and your relationships as they are right now. Don’t try to fix anything – only work on adjusting your relationship to those things to be as healthy and authentic as they can be.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

If you don’t let go of the past, it’ll bind you in ways that make you very unhappy. Assigning blame to others when you’re upset is tempting, but it’s a fool’s errand. Forgive those who upset you this year, even if they’re totally wrong and you’re 100% right. You participated one way or another in the dynamics that upset you, and there’s some nugget of wisdom to be gained from that. Don’t miss out on the pearls ‘cause you’re fixated on the swine, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

As you close out 2016, it’s time to take stock of how you showed up for the people in your life. If you hide behind your old ways of connecting with people, you’ll never get past where you’re at with yourself, Virgo. It’s time to grow beyond this point. Challenge yourself and let yourself feel a little out of control or vulnerable in efforts to connect more deeply with the folks you actually want to be close to. Pay extra attention to opportunities for closeness around the New Moon on the 28th.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Resistance is futile, my love. You’re fighting change, and it’s giving you a bad feeling. Don’t let the fear of the unknown make you think that something is wrong. There’s a big difference between anxiety and intuition, but nervous thoughts have a way of insisting that they’re the only truth when they most certainly are not. Be courageous enough to hope, Libra. Dare to yearn for what you want and to be audacious enough to believe you can get it this week.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

When you feel stuck or overwhelmed it’s easy to get defensive, but that’s the wrong use of your energy. Use this week’s New Moon in steadfast Capricorn to get hella grounded. It’s only from a centered and calm place that you’ll be able to see all of the options available to you. While you’re likely to have to change some things, you do have choices. Your job is to choose wisely, my love. Step into the New Year without the baggage, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

This week you’ll feel inspired to expand your vision for your life, and so it’s your job to make sure that you ground that picture into your current reality. Don’t go looking for a new relationship before you let go of the old one or go spending all of your money before you cash your first paycheck. Tidy up loose ends this week, and close out 2016 intentionally. There is so much exciting potential alive for you in 2017. You just have to build a sturdy bridge between what you’ve got and what you want.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Think of the New Moon in your sign on the 28th as your own personal self-investigation day. Spend some time getting in touch with how you feel, even if that means confronting some unpleasant emotions. Don’t let your ego serve as a distraction – let it guide you to self-care but not self-aggrandizement. You’ve been working around some fears, and it’s time to confront them so you can sort them out. Whether you need a plan or simply a change of heart, embrace transformation.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You’re changing in leaps and bounds, but man, life is moving slowly all around you! Let the fools that you must suffer catch up with you this week, Aquarius. You’re capable of making connections faster than most, but your emotional intelligence moves just as painstakingly slow as everyone else. Get in touch with your feelings, especially the ones that there’s nothing you can do about and that don’t make sense. The missing ingredient to your transformation is heartfelt presence.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

If 2016 has taught you anything, it’s that you’re not in control. That said, you are a magical creature who can make something out of nothing, Pisces. Align yourself with your gifts, and don’t worry so much about what other people want from you. It’s not necessary to apologize or try to fix things. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 28th can help you get grounded. From that place, set your course for the future you want to create, even if it seems like a long shot right now.

How well you put your life together is on you, Aries. This week is bringing some meaningful energy to the surface, and it’ll be an awesome opportunity if you play it out right. If you seize things that you don’t truly desire or aren’t ready for, you’ll just end up feeling overwhelmed. Be willing to let things go if you’re not certain about them; that‘s the best way to leave room for magic to flow into your life.

April 20-May 20

Not knowing what comes next makes it easy to project all your fears into the abyss of ‘what-if’s’, but it’s a fool’s errand, my friend. Resist the urge to scatter your energy in efforts to find the answers to questions you’re feeling ambiguous about to begin with. The direction your life is taking is not yet defined, and if you can let that be, you’ll be able to enjoy what you’ve got going for you in the here and now. Don’t focus on what you don’t have this week.

It’s time to reach out with your whole heart, Twin Star. You’ve been working on some old emotional patterns, and you’re ready to put them into action. Be intentional with how you relate to the people you’re close to this week. Don’t expect others to be different when they’ve proven over and again that they don’t want to change. Compassion won’t turn a bad relationship good, but it will ease your pain. Act in ways that reflect your integrity, not your situation, my love.

CANCER

This week will be as dramatic as you allow it to be. If you can tolerate that your fam are individuals with varying thresholds for emotion, then you won’t have to take what they do or don’t do personally. We are all limited by our own nature; don’t assume that when Uncle John is being himself that it has anything to do with you. Repeat after me: It’s not my job to police how others feel. I don’t have to take on other people’s stress. Got it? Good!

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

If you can listen to what others are telling you about themselves with their actions, you’ll end up gaining both time and energy. There’s some tension between you and others based on the difference between what you’re saying versus how you’re feeling. You can handle people like a champ, but that doesn’t help you cultivate the kind of intimacy you want. Let people and situations reveal themselves to you before you bolt forward with some cray plan that’ll ruffle emo egos this week.

If you act in accordance with your values, life can be so very much simpler  a place for you. This week you’re being asked to seek internal balance. Don’t worry about doing things ‘right’ or ‘wrong’; only concern yourself with authenticity. When you’re true to yourself, you don’t have to prove or defend anything to anyone. Let your feelings be happy, sad, or whatever; just don’t try and convince others to see things the way you do. Your perspective is enough, Virgo.

Honoring your heart doesn’t mean you always get to be happy – it means that when you struggle, your problems are helping you to become a better version of yourself. Following your heart is great until it leads you to a cliff; that’s when things get scary. This week you can be transformed by life-affirming risks, but you have to use discretion. If you know your limits, you can work wisely within them, and they won’t actually limit you. The way to achieve lasting happiness is to have it be true.

It doesn’t make your obsessions less upsetting if you check and check and circle back for one more glance at ‘em, Scorpio. One look is enough! Details are great, but if you try to take in too many, they’ll obscure the big picture and create confusion. Have faith in your ability to take care of yourself as well as the people and things you love. If things are going to fall apart, you’ll handle them, but feeling bad about them in advance isn’t doing anything to further your cause.

It’s all about how you rise to the occasion, not the occasion itself, Sagittarius. don’t get caught up stressing about all the possible outcomes of an upsetting situation because no matter how smart you are, you can’t know what’s going to happen. All you need to do is confront your fears constructively this week. Stare them down, and make life-affirming choices, despite your suspicions that everything is going downhill. You’ve got this, my love.

When you get scared, you do it with the force of heavy-handed and depressive Saturn (you lucky devil, you!). This week, you must confront a fear that’s got it’s icy paws on your tender heart, and if you do it like a bully, you won’t get very far. Rise to the challenge and face your inner demons, as they’re much worse than the one’s outside of your head. There is no perfect answer; just attempt to infuse your worries with hope and kindness until it’s time for your next move.

Frustrations and chaos are hella unsettling and can lead to all kinds of anxious thoughts and feelings.

I’m not encouraging you to quietly take hits, but it’s important that you don’t adopt other people’s madness as your own. Haters gonna hate, and there’s no changing that; don’t let other’s problems knock you off your center, Pisces.
