Mercury is Retrograde, lovers. Your computer may be on the fritz, and your plans may not be as iron clad as you thought they were. Save your docs and communicate with care.
March 21-April 19
Perfection is not having everything all at once; it’s something more subtle and meaningful, Aries. If you had all of your desires satiated, where would you be? Learn how to enjoy the journey, my friend, because it’s part of the gift. Even the cruddy parts are perfect in what they have to teach you. Reflect on the things that seemed awful in 2015 but that you ended up learning from, and lay foundations for happiness by integrating the lessons of your past this week.
April 20-May 20
Control and responsibility are two totally different things, Taurus. The first can help you avoid the second, and that’s a problem. When you seek to control yourself, your situation, or how other people act and feel, you end up disconnecting from yourself to manage others. You’ll be better off focusing on your own homework, homie. Take kindhearted responsibility for your own feels, actions, and words, and the consequences they provoke this week.
May 21-June 21
Take a break, Twin Star. You’re overactive mind is doing backflips, just in time for your ruling planet to do it’s moonwalk through the sky. You can’t change the past; but if you let it catch up with you, you can finally deal with it. Invest in creating peace this week by putting your efforts where they’ll actually help you. Whether you need to make amends to someone you’ve got bad blood with or to file last year’s taxes, stop fretting and just do it.
June 22-July 22
Don’t put yourself down! The world is full-on crazy, and there are enough ways that things can go wrong without you making it worse on yourself. Embrace the most excellent ways that you are you, Moonchild. Whether you love on your quirks, your big ol’ heart, or maybe just your Pinterest board, there’s for sure something aboutyourself that you can (and should) feel good about. Be brave enough to hold yourself up this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
Your relationships require patience and self preservation, Leo. You’re fun and everybody loves you (duh), but it’s OK if you’re not all things to all people all the time. The truth is that you don’t need to force anything this week. Dynamics are unfolding in perfect harmony, but that might feel hella bad if you’re not happy and you’re keeping yourself stuck in your situation. Be honest with yourself and the people you love about where you’re at.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your fears have so little to do with reality, Virgo. This week you’d be wise to get outside of your own head because you seem to be convincing yourself that things are far worse than they are. Take three positive, life-affirming actions that support you in seeing the best in yourself and the world around you. Be generous and kind to yourself and others because it’s a great thing to do, but also do it to support you in thinking about something, anything, but your own self.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The thing about attachments is that when you grip on too tightly, you are no longer choosing the person or thing because you’re being driven by the feeling of needing them. It’s the start of a new year and a great time to shed addictions, Libra. Some of your old ways are holding you in a hurtful rut. Letting go is painful business but an unavoidable part of life. Cut away the ties that bind you so there’s room in your life for the kinds of connections that help you grow.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your relationships are demanding your attention, and the more willingly you give it, the better the results will be. When you act in the ways you think you ‘should,’ there’s a danger that you’ll end up being resentful and acting cool with things that you’re decidedly not chill with. Make a promise to yourself that you’ll be true to your heart this week, Scorpio. Offer only what you have to give, and take only what you need. A healthy give and take will lead to a happy heart.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
When you make changes from a scared and scarcity-minded place, it can feel like getting what you want is a consolation prize, even when it’s not. When you are connected to possibility and abundance -- even when you don’t achieve your goals -- it’s easy to embrace the gifts you do have. Check in with your attitudes and feels this week if you want to have something better in your life, ‘Tarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Set the wheels of change in motion and then sit back and let things develop, Cappy Mon Capitan. You’re capable of making some high-level changes, but nothing is going to transform overnight. Have faith in your growth, even if you don’t see a lot of evidence that things are expanding over the next couple of weeks. Don’t jump on your worst case scenarios and make mountains out of molehills. Deal with your insides while your outsides develop this week.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
When you don’t know how to handle your feels, the worst thing you can do is get ‘rational’ and reason with yourself. When you’re in an emo place, it’s important to know that your needs aren’t reasonable – they’re emotional. Find your center by aligning with what you feel, Aquarius. You don’t have to understand what it all means or know what to do with yourself, but you do need to get real honest if you’re going to move on from here.
Feb. 19-March 20
You can be totally freed from fear if you stop thinking about it and you just do it, Pisces. Your creative potential is there for the taking, but you have to get out of your own way if you’re gonna be able to embrace your own greatness, lover. You’re ready to live a life that is abundant and flowing with riches on the inside and out, so let that nagging feeling of worry fade into the background and make some damn noise this week.
