:: purple & green Fluorite ::

This week kicks off with intensity that'll demand to be dealt with. Busy-body Mercury is super active this week, so make sure not to get so caught up in the details that you forgo taking care of your mental wellness. On the 23rd prepare to feel the full force of inquisitive Mercury squaring obsessive and defensive Pluto. This is a bad time for keeping secrets and can turn what feels like innocent gossip into mean-spirited sh#t talk. The power and potential of these conflicting energies is in confronting some scary or unpleasant truth and coping with it. The negative of it is that it can make you feel like the world is giving you side-eye and everyone has bad intentions. Whether that’s true or not, challenge yourself to use discretion when picking fights with others because once you say a thing, you can’t take it back.

Pluto wants us to heal but doesn’t mind using destructive tactics to get the job done. Catch me clutching my fav fluorite stones to aid me in using discretion and staying detached enough to see things clearly. We’ll all need to do whatever we can to stay impartial because this transit will bleed into a Mercury opposition to know-it-all Jupiter on the 24th, and then on the 26th Mercury will sit on top of explosive Uranus. The trouble with all these transits back-to-back is that you or someone else can convince themselves that the sky is made out of marshmallows and defend that conviction with nothing but a feeling to back ‘em up. Mercury and Jupiter proselytize and lecture, and they can be terribly self-righteous. Mercury and Uranus govern the nervous system and the conviction that ‘if I make sense of it, I’ll feel better.’ This means that thoughts can race away due to negativity instead of towards a clear conclusion. This will bring forth excellent energy for getting involved – whether that means (re)committing to activism, bringing your friends together, or having the fresh perspective needed to see the big picture. Just don’t jump to conclusions, and don’t forget to listen at least as much as you talk, Puppy.

On the 27th there will be a potent New Moon in Aries and egotistical Mars will sextile selfless Neptune. This combo-platter of events will bring up idealism and romance, which can be sweet for your love life. These energies favor art, inspired service, and new beginnings that allow you to be your best and shiniest self. The tricky part is only that this tra-la-la energy is coming after six straight days of Mercury messing with us. You may feel frayed or exhausted by the time our first New Moon of the season hits, and if so, take a much-needed break on this day. If you can get into nature or visit a museum or some other inspiring location, you’ll be doing great. Kick off self-care habits that serve the greater whole and not just you – we’re all in this together,  and being a part of the solution is good for your soul.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

This is your moment, Aries. Get real about what you want because what you’ve been telling yourself is not quite cutting it. It’s really important for you to uncover the role that fear plays in your decision-making because when it gets triggered, you get defensive, and that’s no fun for anyone. Make a choice, and commit to a course of action because it feels really right for you and not just because you’re scared of the alternative. If anyone can live the dream, you can.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week is going to take the stuff you’ve been percolating on since Venus went Retrograde on the 4th, and it’s going to force you to confront it. This is an excellent time for deep self-help work, consorting with your Dear Diary, or simply hashing things out with a friend. You’re going through it, Taurus, but you kinda need to; the stuff that you’ve been doing that isn’t true for you is taking its toll. Make sure that your compromises aren’t compromising you, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

The past is meant to be a guide, but not a literal one; you can learn from it without having to repeat it. This week’s energy blast will be wasted if you don’t spring into action, Twin Star. You’re on call to research, connect, and move forward. Your ruling planet is challenging you to grow past your limitations and create the future you most want for yourself. Your challenge is to move beyond the old stories that you have about what’s possible. You’ve got this!

CANCER

June 22-July 22

If you don’t know what you want from life, this is your time to connect the dots and figure it out. This week will bring you bolts of inspiration, but it’s on you to take some risks and act on your insights. When people and situations upset you, your best move is to investigate what your reaction says about you, first and foremost. Don’t let your fears inhibit you from expanding past this point. The only true failure for you to avoid is the failure to learn and grow from your experiences.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

It’s time to put your money where your mouth is, Leo. You can talk a big game, but when push comes to shove, what do you really do? Now’s the time to embody your attitudes with honesty or to change them altogether. Both of these options take courage, which you have plenty of; you just need to decide you’re willing to use it. Don’t jump to conclusions. Even if it seems like you have all the data, you probably don’t. Take into account the big picture this week.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You’re ready, Virgo. You’ve been struggling to get to the place where you can move on, and this is it. Instead of asking others to change, you’re ready to be the change you need to see in your life. This doesn’t mean you have to remain in subpar situations; it’s that you’re ready to accept things as they really are and act based on that wisdom. You can make lemonade out of your lemons if you want, or you can leave the whole sour mess behind and seek other fruit; the choice was always yours.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Be on the lookout for your relationships to bring up exactly what you need (but maybe don’t want) to deal with. This week will reveal secrets, trigger fights, and offer opportunities for reconciliation. The mystery is only how you’ll handle it, Libra. When things hit the fan, you can frantically keep the peace, or you can step up and be true to yourself. Strive to put authenticity in front of diplomacy, even if it’s scary. You’ve got this, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Don’t put off your work or let ego-based conflicts distract you from your goals. This week you can knock it out of the park, but you have to remember what you came here for. Petty disputes and defensive behavior will make the very things you’re trying to resist come to bear, so breathe through your stresses, Scorpio. You don’t need to prove your power to anyone, my love. Show up and be your best self, even when other people are acting like jerks.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

You deserve to be free and unencumbered by BS, but it just isn’t always possible. This week may bring some chaotic action your way, so get ready to cope. You are not meant to throw in the towel or pick a fight, no matter how tempting either of those things may be. Invest in your relationships by not participating when you feel too crazy to do it in a healthy way. But don’t ghost people either; clearly communicate what you can or can’t offer until you can show all the way up.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you try to pull passive-aggressive stuff on people this week, it will backfire fantastically, Cappy Mon Capitan. You are being called to balance the truth with diplomacy in a way that neither waters it down nor alienates the person you’re dealing with. This isn’t easy, but it isn’t complicated either. Don’t blame others for what you choose to participate in, no matter how tempted you are or how culpable they seem. Pick your fights wisely, my friend.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

It’s easy to get caught up in other people’s dramas when you’re on the edge yourself. This week your self-care needs to be on point so that you don’t act out when someone else is acting out. It may seem like they’re being a jerk, but they probably need your help. Have patience for other people’s process, even if they’re moving way slower than you wish they were. As an added bonus, you may find that a more chill pace leaves space for you to actually feel better – try it!

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

It’s OK to be self-protective when you’re not sure what you need or where you stand. This week is going to bring up all the feels, but there’s a big-picture reason why; it’s time to ask for help. Know who your allies are and who you can turn to for support, and let them help a Pisces out. You’re on the path to success and about to bust through some old limitations, and it will be so much sweeter if you have people close by to share it with.

:: Rose Quartz & springtime flowers ::

Your horoscope this week kicks off with a super intense Scorpio Moon. Keep your secrets, but don’t be a creep about it! In other words, you don’t have to lie to protect your privacy, and you don’t need to justify feeling intense. Between the 16th-18th, the Sun in sensi Pisces will square (which means form an uncomfortable relationship to) heavy-handed Saturn. This will make the glass feel half-empty and can give you a case of the sad-sack blues. Saturn has a fun/not fun way of kicking you in the gut with reality. For best results, step up and humbly own your part, work hard, and stay in the game. Expect problems with your relationship to your obligations, the material world, or the dominant power structure, AKA The Man. Luckily as this transit passes, we have a chill Mercury conjunction to (the still Retrograde, read about it here) Venus, until the 19th. This is a great vibe for connecting with friends, being creative, and popping bonbons in your mouth whilst shopping online for gold chokers you might never wear (ahem).

This leads us into the Spring Equinox on the 20th, when the Sun enters excitable Aries. Astrology is a tool for mapping seasons, and the Vernal Equinox is the season where the light starts to overtake the darkness. It’s freaking beautiful, but it’s also a time of change. If you’ve been trying to keep things from changing, it gets harder to do when new growth is everywhere. This is the time to spring forward and create new beginnings, both spiritually and materially. The truth is that whenever you grow, you risk outgrowing something. Wherever there’s light, we have shadow. Channel the pioneering energy of this season to be an active part of the changes you want to see in the world and in your life. You have everything to gain, my love.

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

There’s a deep shift rumbling inside your psyche, and it’s important that you take the time to listen to it. Whether your dreams have been trying to tell you something, or it’s right here on the surface plain as day, the truth is catching up with you, Aries. This week, pay close attention to the consequences of actions that you initiated last autumn. You should have a pretty good idea if things are working out for you, like it or not.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week your coping skills are being tested, Taurus. When there’s not an answer or a clear place to go it’s easy to shut down or panic, but that’s the opposite of what you actually need. Take a step back from your relationships to locate your center; do some breathe work, write in your journal, and generally reconnect with yourself. If stop obsessing on what-ifs and projecting into where you think others are at. Just focus on you. Determine where you stand and do what’s right.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

In order to get where you want to go you’re going to have to confront your fears. You have some seriously limiting beliefs that you’ve somehow decided is the truthiest truth you know, even if it’s just a matter of opinion. Change your thinking and you lay the foundation for changing your outcomes, Twin Star. The trick is that it has to be heartfelt; your feelings have to match your thoughts in order for it to be more than mind chatter. Do the work today for your long-term success, my friend.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

How you make your life work can be a delicate balance of your wants, needs, and obligations, and sometimes it feels like there’s not enough time for the sweet stuff. This week is all about confronting the compromises you’ve made out of a sense of necessity. Was it necessary? Have you overlooked other options? Think of the big picture of your needs, and then write a To Do list that breaks things down into small, actionable pieces. Create change step by step, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

You can’t figure it out by combing over details because the answer is not out there, Leo; the answers are within you. This week you’re on call for deep introspection and reflection. When you’re fixated on finding the answer, you’re not able to do a good job of listening. Pay attention to your inner self, even if it’s not fun. Honor what’s true for you, even if it throws you for a loop. Its time to move on, but first you’ve got to get present, my love.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

The only way for things to be different is for you to change, Virgo. You can’t control others – not what they think, what they feel, or what they do. What you have power over are your own thoughts and actions and not anyone else’s. This week will confront you with something that’s hard to look at in yourself or a relationship that you value. Don’t get distracted by what anyone else is doing. Take responsibility for your part, and let the rest play out, as it will.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Your impatience could get the better of you if you’re not careful. Real progress takes a while. It’s always possible to have meteoric rises in success, but even then you’ve got to adjust to your new situation over the course of time. Not having what you want right now is not evidence that you’ll never get it. If you accept your current situation as it is in this moment, you can take whatever steps necessary to get where you really want to be. Do the grunt work now, Libra.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

The role that fear plays in your life should be instructive but not directive; that means that it’s wise to let your fears inform your common sense. This can help you stay safe and sound. You are veering off course when you allow your angst to limit your thinking and direct your every move. Weigh your options calmly so that you make well-considered choices this week, no matter how tempting it is to go with your knee jerk reactions. Keep it slow and steady, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Sometimes the rough stuff points you to what needs the most attention and care in your life, ‘Tarius. Instead of avoiding it or rushing to fix it, let life’s upsets be interesting to you. Just make sure to investigate the hard stuff with humility; if you’re willing to work on yourself, then you won’t be looking for evidence that you’re the worst or the best. Just be a person doing their utmost to be whole – that’s your best course of action, my friend.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Rigid thinking will only get you in trouble, Cappy. You don’t get to decide what’s “right”, but this week you’re on call to figure out what’s right for you. Be weary of the desire to be judge and jury because you’re so certain of how things “should” be. You don’t have all the answers, and you can’t see things from every angle. Have humility for the limitations of your own perspective, and be open to learning from difference this week.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There’s no way around it – if your actions aren’t lined up with your values, you are not going to be happy. This week you’re likely to be dealing with the result of being out of pace with yourself. Allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to admit what’s not working and strong enough to show yourself compassion for it. You can technically push yourself past this point, but you’ll just exhaust yourself in the long run.  Deal with your feels before you take another step, Aquarius.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

This isn’t the time to crumble under pressure. This week is your time to step up, even if you’d kinda prefer to pass out. Your boundaries are being tested and that can’t feel good, but there is a higher purpose to it. Strive to express ownership of your boundaries and needs without apology or defensiveness, Pisces. You don’t need to wait until someone gives you permission or until things get awful; you get to express dissent here and now, just because it’s true for you.

Get ready for another emo week!

On the 9th, Mars – the planet that rules the ego and rage (as well as doing it and your car – it’s not all bad!) – shifts into the stabilizing and grounding sign of Taurus. Expect to have a more levelheaded and slightly less fiery shift in energy. This shift, paired with the Venus Rx that we’re experiencing through April 15th, is really grounding for assessing your values. Hunker down and get real about what truly matters to you, and then do something about it. Taurus is a material girl, living in a material world; exchange your theories and ideals for whatever you know to be true in the here and now. The astrology of the 9th will also enjoy the Sun warmly shaking hands (aka forming a sextile) with transformative and intense Pluto. This will produce synergy in our lives and a powerful vibe best used for creation and reform. Get actively involved in your life. This isn’t the time to let your concerns about what other people say stop you from living your best and most honorable life. 

The Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th will have a somber edge to it (yay!). Full Moons mark the end of a cycle, and when the Moon is at its brightest, we can often see what’s been repressed. Full Moon feels have a way of crashing to the surface and demanding to be dealt with. The Virgo energy will help us get aligned with what’s healthy and sustainable, so don’t avoid themes of self-care. How you pace yourself through life has a huge impact on how you feel. Virgo is the perfectionist sign of detailed analysis, so remember that there’s no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to feel, loves. Virgo’s ruling planet, Mercury, will be squaring heavy-handed Saturn on the 12th too. This will make for introspective and critical rationale that could easily get caught up in some Debbie Downer trains of thought. Don’t jump to conclusions or expect the worst; I’ll be using my trusty Selenite to both honor the Moon and to cultivate the flexibility I need to see things clearly. If there’s hard work or straight-talk that you’ve been putting off, this is a good time to tackle it. Saturn favors those who take on difficult tasks and werq. ✌🏾 

 

ARIES

March 21-April 19

How you have your life set up is due for an upgrade, Aries. Whether you’ve gotten into a rut or have too much on your plate, it’s time for you to confront what’s not working for you in your day-to-day. The Full Moon is a good time for you to quit a bad habit and deal with the feels underlying your behavior. Just because you don’t know what comes next doesn’t mean that things have to stay the same. Subtract what isn’t serving you, and see what emerges this week.

­TAURUS

April 20-May 20

This week the vibes may be kinda heavy, but you’re doing all right, Taurus. If you can sift through your worries, you’ll get to the creative solutions you need. Rather than bolts of inspiration, this is the time for hard work with satisfying rewards. You may be called to negotiate a situation or relationship, and the best policy is to be direct and honest, even if that will make things uncomfortable. Don’t let the pursuit of diplomacy allow you to be stuck in the past.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

Follow your stress. Peace will come from adjustments, big or small. The things that are bugging you the most this week are pointing you to what most needs your attention. You can’t sustain happiness if you are caught up in avoiding what’s wrong – it takes too much energy away from what you need to create. The best way to be true to yourself without being a spazz about it is to sit with your stresses for a bit, Twin Star.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

When your sense of direction is muddled, it’s easy to feel drained and exhausted by the little things. This week’s Full Moon is an excellent time to reign yourself in and make sure that you’re on a path that you actually want to be on. It’s OK to change your mind – growing requires you to outgrow things, whether you like it or not. You don’t need to workshop your ideas, Moonchild; carve out some alone time and get in touch with your own sweet self.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

The theme of values is hammering you this week! If your actions and your convictions aren’t lining up, you’re going to feel really bad. There’s no point in pretending that you’re OK with something you’re mad at or in going to do something you already dread. You’re being called to step up your game and honor what you believe and desire. Make plans and have heart-to-hearts that clear the way, Leo. It’s worth it to confront your fears, no matter how compelling they are.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

It’s that time of year when the Moon is full in your sign, so get ready for a big emo shift, Virgo. It’s time for meaningful introspection. Your work/life balance needs refining or at least greater attention, but you have some pretty great excuses running for why that’s just not possible. It’s time to get out of your own way, Virgo. You can weave stories to match your feelings, but that doesn’t make them true. Seek the truth without justification this week.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

When we don’t know where to place thoughts and feelings, we tend to repress them, but they have a funny way of popping up. Pay special attention to your dreams around the Full Moon, as they’re likely to be intense and very revealing. You’re meant to be processing some pretty heavy themes, Libra, and it’s important that you don’t get tripped up on the path to perfection. Honor the process instead. Only make compromises that serve your big-picture needs this week.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

What or who you love needs your undivided attention, Scorpio. It’s time to show up and listen this week, even when your inner dialogue wants to drown out all other voices. You’ve been ruminating, and the conclusions that you’ve come to about the world and your place in it are not necessarily coming from a balanced place. Lay your burden down for a while, and concentrate on being of service in whatever ways you can. Sometimes filling others up creates abundance for everyone, my love.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

It’s time to build bridges, ‘Tarius. There’s where you want to be and where you are, and there’s nothing but opportunity in between. What you’ve got to do is figure out how to get from where you are to where you want to be in actionable terms. Some of the choices you’re making may actually be at cross-purpose to your goals. The good news is that it’s not too late to course correct. You can’t have all the answers, but you can move yourself in the direction of them.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

It would be easy to spiral downwards into some heavy thinking, but not helpful, Cappy Mon Capitán. If you can think in broader terms, you’ll be able to see past the immediacy of your stresses and get to some more sustainable solutions. Pain is an inevitable part of life, but suffering is a choice, at least in part. Instead of curating answers, strive to manage your anxiety with more compassion. This week can yield breakthroughs, but it won’t happen if you’re a bully.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You’re so ready; you've been dragging around an ocean of worries, and you’re finally ready to release them, Aquarius. This shift is not about not caring; it’s about applying your care in a positive direction. It’s hard to find creative solutions when anxiety and the dank side of what-ifs are bogging you down. Write down all the stresses that have been hurting you – the big and the small – and tear them up with the Full Moon on the 12th. Release your worries, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

How you do or don’t share of yourself is up this week. The Full Moon in your relationship house happens but once a year, and it’s important for you to take note. You have the habit of holding yourself back for fear of repercussions, but an avoidant strategy brings its own problems. Have compassion for yourself where you’ve made mistakes, and find strength enough to try again. This is the time to be more centered in your own truth, and honest from that place, Pisces.

🎢 Taking care of your emo, mental, and spiritual wellness is key because anxiety is hella up this week. Explosive Uranus and impulsive Jupiter are opposite each other, and it’s making everyone nervous. These two planets govern the desire to be autonomous and free, but neither of them are known for self-control or their ability to pace themselves. If you’re extra nervous, blame it on these guys, and use stones and herbs that help calm the nervous system (Amethyst and Lavender are a good pair).

Things kick off on the 1st with the Sun sitting on top of dreamy, easily confused Neptune, and it’s gonna feel weird. The vibe is super emo; it’s likely to feel differently for everyone, and that’s exactly the problem. You may feel like you’re sharing the same experience with someone when they’re on a totally different page from you. Neptune is magical, which is awesome, but it can also make you feel paranoid and anxious, which bites. Make the most of it by allowing yourself to be introspective, and draw your conclusions later. Neptune will bleed into all that you do this week, so take things easy as much as possible. Mercury will join Neptune on the 4th, making it a great time for writing poetry and channeling divinity but a bad time for managing time and the mundane needs of the material world. Miscommunications are likely during these days, but try to give others the benefit of the doubt and remember: ice is for cool beverages, not for friends! Don’t ice your friends if they disappoint you – warmth and openness will take you where you wanna be.

The big news this week is that Venus starts it’s moonwalk through the sky on the 4th, and it’ll continue it’s retrograde motion until April 15th. This means that what you care deeply about is up for reevaluation. Venus is the planet of sensual love; it governs beauty, art, diplomacy and closeness, but above all else, it’s the planet of values. During this retrograde, it’s wise to appraise the authenticity and worth of the people and the things in your life. If they don’t reflect what you truly value, it’s time to make some meaningful changes. The most important love relationship that you have in your life should be the one you have with yourself. Create a vibrant life that reflects what you care most deeply about, and watch the good stuff fall in line.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

If your mind isn’t clear, it’ll be really hard to tell your wisdom from your mind chatter, Aries. There’s a bunch of restless and exciting energy at play this week. The risk is that it could make everything shiny seem like gold, but it isn’t, dear one. Your intuition is a tool that needs consistent sharpening so that it can function well. Slow down and tune in, especially when you’re feeling impatient with your process. It’s OK if your freedom is gained via intentional compromise, lover.

April 20-May 20

Your ruling planet goes Retrograde on the 4th, and it’s putting you on call to realign with your ethics. There’s anxious energy in the air, and if you’re not careful, it’ll be catching. This week, you need to spend enough time alone to be able to distinguish what’s yours versus what belongs to the people that you’re close to. In order to pull this off, you need to believe that you have a right to be OK when others aren’t and that you deserve to take the break you so deeply need.

You’re likely to be feeling easily overwhelmed this week, and that can make you look for the easy way out. There’s no escaping yourself, no matter how good you are at pulling the old Twin Star Jekyll and Hyde routine. Make sure to dot your i’s and cross your t’s, Gemini. You alone are in charge of where you take your life. Follow through on opportunities that excite you, honor your commitments, and deal with the scary bits head-on.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

When you’re not right with yourself, everything you do feels off. Take strides to better understand what your fears are trying to tell you before you go trying to fix anyone else, Moonchild. Listen to your inner voice so that if you’re off track, you don’t go too far in the wrong direction, and if you’re doing alright, you can change your attitude. Find your center of gravity, and seek to act from a self-loving place. You can totally handle any changes you need to make; pace yourself this week.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Letting go of the past is no simple task. You can’t reason with yourself and whisk it away or sweep it under the rug; letting go is an emotional process, and that means it takes time, Leo. This week, you’re likely to get insights into a long-developing emotional situation. Don’t jump on them or make any wild proclamations! Sit with your feelings, and see what they reflect about you – not anyone else. Healing happens when you stop trying to force a fix.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

You’re relationships are likely to be rocky this week, so pace yourself. If you’re feeling gripped by anxieties that won’t let you go, the worst thing you could do is substantiate them with a story. Don’t weave narratives to match your feelings, Virgo. Feeling scared doesn’t mean that you’re in jeopardy, and it’s unwise to try and prove to yourself that it does. Let your feels gestate before you jump to conclusions or convince yourself of a drama that just isn’t there.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

You want to be free and you deserve it, but free of what? And at what cost? This week you’re not going to get answers from anyone other than your own sweet self, and that’s scary. Your tendency is to run ideas past other people, but this is the time for you to sit with your ideas and not let others’ opinions be your deciding factor. Taking full responsibility means that if something goes wrong, you have to shoulder the consequences, but it’s totally worth it, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Art and creativity can have a profoundly healing effect on your life, Scorpio. If you’ve been feeling down or stuck, this is the time to get back to the studio and make some art, find new music to fall in love with, or watch an inspiring movie. Let fiction and fantasy inspire and refresh you, giving you a much needed break from the hardships you’re dealing with. Let yourself be transformed by beauty wherever you can get it this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

When your roots feel loose, everything suffers. This week you’re on call to have healthy boundaries, ‘Tarius, especially when you’d rather collapse into your habits. Compromise is healthy, but not when it compromises you; doing your own thing is healthy, but not when you trample on the needs of others to do it. That sucks. Whatever you do, it’s important that you own it, my love. Make choices that you can stand by, no matter who knows what you’re doing.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

This week you’re likely to be wrestling with some deep stuff, so here’s a pro tip to help you out: there are no shoulds. Live in accordance with what’s right for you – not what’s “right”. You can’t do everything all at once, and you can’t be perfect. If you don’t think you have the right to do what you need to do, you’ll fester with resentments and get nothing done at all. Now that that’s cleared up, honor your need for change, and get out of your own way.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

If you survived last week’s eclipse without shaking things up, you may be feeling really anxious about now. There are so many paths that you can take, but they’re not all equal. it’s time to honor your needs in the here and now, regardless of whether or not it feels easy to make changes. You deserve happiness, Aquarius. Honor the needs of your heart over the needs of your ego, even if it requires radical changes to your plans.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

There’s a lot of action in your sign again this week, and it’s gonna feel intense for you. Don’t seek perfection, Pisces; seek progress. Don’t look for external evidence that you’re doing it right; trust in your own perceptions and honor them. Confronting the world and all of it’s challenges takes courage, and if you stop looking for validation from others, you’ll find that you’re fully equipped to give it to yourself. There’s a bigger picture at play. Take heart and have faith in it.

:: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It’s the things that freak you out most that are begging for your attention.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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? If you pay attention, this week will reveal what is and isn’t working for you.

This week is going to give you the energy boost you need to get yourself into gear. Your synapses are on fire, and you’re making connections that work. The trick is to stay focused and not spread your efforts over too wide of a landscape. You’re capable of so much, but you ultimately have to make choices; do you want to do a bit of everything or go deep into one or two things? The choice is yours, Twin Star, and it’s time for you to make it.

Things are settling but not completely pleasantly. You have to answer for your actions, Moonchild. Even if you think you’re perfectly innocent, you don’t get to decide for others how you made them feel. Be willing to eat some humble pie this week, my love. There is absolutely nothing wrong with making mistakes or having a learning curve to your development. Just own where you’re at, and moving forward, strive to do better when and how you can.

Love is hella perplexing. There’s how you feel, and then there’s how you act. Its not enough to mean well, you have to act right too, Leo. You may be feeling great when someone comes out of the woodwork with a backlog of complaints. Don’t be cavalier with other people’s feelings, even if dealing with them really harshes your mellow. If you’re willing to be honest, you can have clarifying conversations that bring you closer to the people you care about. Step up, my love.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

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.

LIBRA

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.

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’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.
