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!
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.
May 21-June 21
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
