Love Lanyadoo Astrology
Happy New Year, lovers! Mercury goes retrograde on the 5th -25th making it a great time to get introspective and learn from the successes and fails of your recent past.
March 21-April 19
Fearful thinking is an investment in what you don’t want. Oh, I know it doesn’t feel that way, but it’s a repetitive way of pumping energy and effort into what you don’t want. It’s a New Year, and with it comes room for new moves. Decide to let go of your biggest fears, even if only for today. Try on what it feels like to be free from old, negative expectations, Aries. You’re likely to find that in that space, new ideas and the energy to carry them out will emerge.
April 20-May 20
It’s not likely that you’ll attract different people or circumstances into your life if you yourself aren’t different, Taurus. You won’t be able to change in the ways you need to if you aren’t wiling to outgrow the fools and frontiers that match you as you are now. It’s a mistake to avoid sadness when it’s healthy or to make do with a life that is less than you want it to be. Don’t fear change, dear one; only fear the stagnancy that comes from not trying at all.
May 21-June 21
In the wise words of Liam Neeson “Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.” Pursue love in all forms, Twin Star. Love yourself through the highs and lows of your days because it will bring you where you want to go quicker, and you’ll be happier when you get you there, too.
June 22-July 22
Embrace it, Moonchild. It’s time to embrace your strength and resiliency because being sensitive is not the same as being weak. It’s time to acknowledge the influence you have over your own happiness and how you’ve been yielding it because you are not powerless, my friend. You are growing and have the potential to be so much gladder then you are if you seize all that is good in your world. Make 2016 the year you say YES, and tell the naysayers to suck it.
July 23-Aug. 22
The only way to the other side is to all the way through it, Leo. There are very few guarantees in life, and sometimes you’ve got to do what’s right for you. Be damned your fears of the consequences! This is not the time for compromises that take you away from yourself. The way to master your situation is to stay centered; honor your instincts and needs from a present and embodied place, and then act from there. Dump your old problems at 2015’s door, and take your chances with something new and improved this coming year.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Having healthy boundaries requires you to know what you need, and that’s no small task. Instead of defending yourself or trying to protect the status quo, work to identify what’s real and true for you, Virgo. You deserve to be a better friend to yourself – think of all the things you do for you! Take care of your heart by only participating in dynamics honestly, even if that shakes things up a bit. It’s a New Year and a great time to be brave enough to be a new you.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The thing about pain is that while yes, it sucks, it can also be healing. Allowing yourself to be sad about lost love, the state of the world, or even a bad haircut is a good thing because it allows for greater depth with your happiness. The ability to stay focused on what’s real and present for you is worth the cost of feeling some unpleasant feels. Accept nothing less than the truth, Libra. At the end of the day, there’s only one voice worth listening to, and it’s the voice of your own heart.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
The tipping point between being self-righteous and just straight-up right is a thin line, Scorpio. Knowing the truth and speaking the truth is one thing, but trying to force said truth down the throats of others is a whole other. No matter how correct you are, you still need to take in what people are saying; otherwise you’re having a monologue and nobody likes getting talked at. If you can’t listen, then you may need to can it this week, and that’s OK. You’ll be better heard when you’re ready to be receptive, lover.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The material world is your friend. You’ve come here in this body, to this physical plane to learn the lessons and nosh on the snacks that this earth has to offer. Now is the time for action, ‘Tarius. Kahlil Gibran said that “work is love made visible” and while that may not always be true, 2016 will lead you to opportunities for your efforts to be an articulation of love. Don’t let fear or self-doubt get in the way of you carving out a piece of happy, my friend.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
There’s no way to know what’s coming next, Cappy, so how’s about focusing on what is. Your greatest powers and resources exist right here and now, with certainties you can grab hold of. When you can’t embrace your present circumstances, you can shift your attitudes; and when you can’t do that, you can find creative distractions. It’s all about how you choose to handle what you’ve been given and not, as you may think, about rushing to the next place. Tomorrow will come; just be here today.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You can lament all the things that aren’t where you want them to be and all the bishes that gave you the sads, but what you shouldn’t do is give up hope. This week is very important for you, Aquarius. Find the fire within, and realign yourself with all of the things and people that you adore. Look for creative solutions to your bummers by (at least in part) leaning on the stuff you have going for you. To embrace your present, you must first let go of your past, pal.
Feb. 19-March 20
By taking the time to review 2015, you can revisit your highs and lows as well as the major themes that did and didn’t work well for you. If you are able to see the patterns at play in your life, it will embolden you to feel confident in the big picture development that you’re engaged in. Seek the truth in concert with what actually happened and not just how you feel about it. This New Year is an especially fertile time for you Pisces, so dare to be bold about what you strive to bring into the world.
