March 21-April 19
Pain is distracting, it sucks, and most humans will do whatever we can to get away from it. But it can also function as a baptism, and it can point out your willfulness. Don’t be in such a hurry to get away from what’s hurting you that you forget to be interested in how you got in this situation to begin with. Treat yourself with compassion as you learn from your experiences this week, Aries.
April 20-May 20
If you bring stress to your situation then things will get worse, Taurus, so your homework this week is to manage your emotions. Be nurturing towards yourself as you stumble through your fears, and do all you can to avoid power games. You only need to compete with yourself, and it is only your personal best that counts at the end of the day. Don’t let your ego get the best of you, pal.
May 21-June 21
This week you are reaping the rewards of effort and the magic of good timing. It’s time to feed your love life. Reach out to the people you care about, and let them know that you appreciate them. Leave your distractions at the door and really show up for your loved ones, and you’ll find that the way they show up for you in return feels awesome. Kindness and intimacy will transform your life if you let it, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
You can’t figure it out, so don’t even try. This week, indecision is just part of the game, and the worst thing you can do is try to force answers. Take care of your anxious thoughts instead of trying to figure things out. From your current state of unrest you’re unlikely to see things clearly. You will be OK if you can treat yourself with kindness and patience, Moonchild, so make it your primary objective.
July 23-Aug. 22
You have to change, sweet Leo. Whether it’s your attitudes, your actions, or even your relationships, you need to be the change you wish to see in your life. Don’t passively wait for others to come around to your way of thinking, for things to go back to easy, or for global warming to fix itself. Do what you feel called to do so that the world you live in -- and your life itself -- is a better reflection of who and what you are. Go big or go home, my fiery friend.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you’ve hit your limit, you need to back off, Virgo. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends of the stick, and it’s finally catching up with you. Don’t look for blame or excuses, no matter how much you want explanations. This week is all about getting grounded and securing your foundations. Fortify yourself and your investments so that you have a safe place to get your shit together from.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Sometimes you need a little ego energy to get things done, Libra. Your relationships are in need of you. Step up and give your attention to the people you care about, even if that means you need to deal with things that are complicated or messy. The thing about intimacy is that it’s worth getting a little dirty over; so don’t shy away from realness in your efforts to preserve appearances this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
When you get right with yourself, you may just find that some of the things you’ve been doing or the situations you’ve been investing in are not right for you. Strive to find peace this week, even though it’s likely to upset the delicate balance you’ve been working with. The only things that will be threatened by you getting healthier really aren’t that good for you anyway; so don’t be scared to shake things up, Scorpio.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Here’s a three step process for success this week: identify what’s working, and take a minute to feel really good about it! Next, identify what isn’t working for you. Use the wisdom and advantages of what you’ve got to support what’s lacking, my friend. So easy! Well, not easy exactly, but definitely simple. Don’t let things get you down when there are accessible and manageable solutions so close at hand.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You’re at the end of a meaningful cycle, Capricorn, and only the truth will set you free. Look within to see what stories you’ve been telling yourself over the past several months as a way to cope -- not because they were deeply true. Own your shit -- the good, the bad, and the fugly -- because even if you’ve really strayed off course, you are in an excellent time to self-correct. Make where you’re going better than where you’ve been.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Sharing is caring, Water Bearer! This week you have good vibes to share, so make sure you’re doing it. Your relationships need attention, but more than that, they need your presence. Show up with an open mind and a full heart and be prepared to listen. Sometimes the best way to show up for others is simply by bearing witness to their experience. Don’t fix and don’t evade, and you’ll be just fine.
Feb. 19-March 20
You can be totally in control of your life, Pisces, but it will be a gamble. You’ll have to chance being wrong, screwing up, bugging others, and countless other things that are pretty much out of your control. This week it’s time to say f&%k it and to go all in. Take on the risks you need to take in order to point your life and your relationships in the right direction. It’s far better to try and fail than to suffer in silence out of fear.
