Puppies! This week there are all kinds of shifts in the Stars. From the 5th-7th the Sun will trine Saturn, making these great days to get ‘er did; follow through on boring projects, or anything that requires concentration. The 6th through 8th may bring power struggles to the surface as Pluto squares the Sun, making us feel helly intense and potentially defensive. These are awesome days for looking deep within and finding roots to your issues, or even dealing with your taxes (GROAN). By the end of the week 4/9-11th, the Sun will be sitting on top of unpredictable Uranus, and that’s likely to bring whatever you’ve been trying to repress to the surface. All this adds up to a week that will challenge us all to step up and deal with what’s real. In the poetic words of Ms. Iggy Azalea: Drop this and let the whole world feel it , ya’ll.
March 21-April 19
If you don’t like where you’re life is at, it’s you that’s gotta change. Instead of trying to convince others of where they need to be or go, this week is your chance to start integrating the shifts you need to make in your self so that you get more out of your life. If things aren’t working for you, don’t fake it. If you’d rather be mellow at home, don’t hit up the club scene. Do things that are right for you, and let your life fall into place from there. Your only job is to be accountable to what’s real, Aries.
April 20-May 20
When you stress out, even if you have a really good reason, you make things way worse on yourself. You can’t control your circumstances or how other people impact your life, but you can take authority over your own thoughts. Avoid obsessive thinking, lover. You need to take care of your feels in order to lay a foundation for constructive thoughts. Don’t let fear convince you that things are worse than they are. Come up with a plan, and put one foot in front of the other this week.
May 21-June 2
Self-awareness is dope, but it’s not a strictly mental thing, Twin Star. In order to really get what’s happening with you on a deeper level, you need to get emotionally right with yourself. Take a step back from everything for a moment, and take stock of your feels. You don’t need to do anything or fix anything, but abandoning yourself when things get sticky isn’t right either. Take loving care of your feels this week, especially if they get overwhelming.
June 22-July 22
Change is scary, even when it’s for the best. When you feel overwhelmed, it’s important to honor that without being self-indulgent, Moonchild. You may be feeling sucked dry this week, and if so it’s important not to lash out at the people around you. You’re in a rut, and that’s just as much because of the choices you’ve made as it is about the people you’re around. Set healthy limits this week, even if it requires you to step far outside of your comfort zone.
July 23-Aug. 22
Truth is a big deal; love it or hate it – whatever’s genuine doggedly persists whether you like it or not. This week it’s important that you add loving kindness to your reality, even if you feel like you need a break from working on yourself. You’re in the throes of a meaningful emo transformation, and the more aware you are of your expectations, the better you can take care of yourself around them. You’ll for sure be all right, but my hope for you is that you shoot for awesome.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Life is a beautiful, crazy adventure, and it can be wonderfully surprising if you allow it to be. You have the chance to embrace possibility and to enhance your emotional life. If you don’t take it, you’ll still have a pleasant week, but if you do put yourself out there and really try, this week may be downright magical. Instead of telling the story of your life, get out there and live it, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Your relationship to fear is on the chopping block, Libra. There’s so much uncertainty in your life that it would be easy to fall into some bad vibes reactive thinking this week. Instead of assuming the worst, try assuming the best; and when that isn’t possible, try assuming something neutral. How you care for yourself around the hard stuff will define you more than the hardships themselves. Be radically compassionate and kind to yourself, lover.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
When you repress your feelings, even when you have the very best reasons for doing it, you end up making a mess of your insides. This week may find you taxed and maxed out, but don’t just stuff away your crappy feels in the back of your closet. Deal with yourself, Scorpio. Listen to your inner voice, and heed what your instincts tell you. The changes you’re capable of executing can help you have more flexibility and happiness. Embrace creative change, so that the Universe doesn’t force it on you, pal.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You’re going through some far-reaching change and have internal tools that will offer more assistance than you’d expect. If things get messy try not to take them at face value, ‘Tarius. You’re likely to be dealing with the exact triggers you need to stimulate your greatest growth. What throws you off-balance is an invitation to discover where and how you can realign with harmony. Seek out peace when it feels furthest from you this week.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Letting your feels get stagnant is an easy way to get hella confused and thrown off course, Cappy. You’ve been participating in a situation in your life that doesn’t bring you happiness; what are you getting out of that raw deal? You deserve to have your heart full, and while some of your emotional life is out of your control, you have a lot of options available to you. Strive to embrace joy and the things that bring you fulfillment instead of the same old/same old this week, lover.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Anxiety is a killer, Aquarius. It shoots down fun, murders common sense, and rips holes in your sense of potential. The only way to know what’s real versus your (very convincing) fears is by setting healthy boundaries and maintaining them this week. You don’t need to apologize for where you’re at or what your desires are from that place. You do have to be responsible to your commitments though. Strike a balance between freedom and fertile accountability this week.
Feb. 19-March 20
Your integrity isn’t like an outfit that you can put on and take off as you please. It’s a thing that emanates from within you, shapes your behavior, and ultimately defines you, Pisces. Act in accordance with your kindest, truest, and most checked-in self. You could easily slip into some old people-appeasing ways this week, and that will make nobody happy. Don’t let a misguided attempt to take care of other peoples feels lull you into acting inauthentically, my friend.
