Love Lanyadoo Astrology 12.23-29.2015
March 21-April 19
The Christmas Full Moon is gonna be just strong enough to knock you on your sweet behind, Aries. You may be tempted to power through your feelings so that you don’t have to feel vulnerable or needy, but that’s just a bandaid on a bullet wound, my friend. Whatever you can’t shake emotionally is clutching on to you for a reason. Seek the peace that only a confrontation with the truth will provide, even if it requires you to step through a passage of discomfort.
April 20-May 20
If you could see in yourself what others see, you’d have more faith in yourself, Taurus. This week will give you plenty of chances to bring your ideas and hopes to fruition, but only if you don’t hide yourself away. Trust in your ability to get things done and in your resilience if you need to backtrack or try again. The only defeat you risk enduring is the failure to launch. Step forward with confidence, and when you can’t do that, try a little gratitude on for size.
May 21-June 21
Sometimes when you’re stuck in an anxiety loop, it’s because real stuff is happening that is overwhelming and confusing; and then sometimes it’s just because you refuse to get grounded. Try not to make things more complicated than they need to be, Twin Star. Reality can be a pain in the ass, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Get present in the here and now so you can handle your business. It’ll make you feel way better now and later, my friend.
June 22-July 22
With the Full Moon in your sign this Xmas, you’re either gonna be right in your all-emo all-the-time element, or you’re gonna feel helly overwhelmed. Either way, your greatest growth and happiness will come through confronting the big feels that are at play in your relationships. Figure out what’s going on for you so that you can act in ways that support you in getting your needs met instead of pushing others away with them, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
The holidays are so emotional, and a big full Moon isn’t helping to tone things down. You’re sad, Leo, and as much as that sucks, it’s totally OK. You know why your heart is hurting, and you even know what you have to do to take care of yourself. The trouble is that the heart is like a senior citizen Corgi with a cone on it’s head, adorable but clumsy and slow-moving. Don’t rush yourself away from even your most unpleasant feels if they’re real. Be as kind to yourself as you would to that mournful pooch.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Expecting the worst is easy. It takes zero vulnerability and helps make you into a martyr; so if you’re in the market of not being responsible for your own happiness, you might as well stay convinced that things will be a bummer forever. Orrrr you can join this shared reality and realize that you have way more going your way than you’re focused on. You can decide to put your awesome mental energy into positive what-ifs instead of fears. Dare to hope for the best, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The only way out of your current funk is through the healthy embodiment of boundaries. This full Moon is a loaded one, and you can expect everyone to be all riled up and feeling intense. Don’t take other people’s weirdness personally because at least half of the time it has nothing to do with you. When you are always the peacekeeper, you can’t be authentic or really present. Don’t stick your nose where it don’t belong, even for the best of reasons, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
How much you love is not the question as much as how well you do it, Scorpio. When you offer up more than you’ve got to give on Monday, you end up drained by Wednesday and downright resentful by Sunday. Only give what you can without tapping yourself. Only say ‘yes’ to the things you feel good about following through on. Balance self-care with kindness to others, even if you have to change your whole approach to relationships to do so.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Listen to your intuition or else, ‘Tarius. If you override your instincts of what you know to be true, you’ll end up hecka overwhelmed and likely to give up before you begin. Take things step by step this week. You don’t have to fix everything at once or even to see the whole picture clearly right now. Do what you can today and nothing more. That’s your best shot at processing your emotions in healthy ways while avoiding the creation of further problems this week.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
If you allow yourself to focus on all the details, you’ll be overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn. If you trust in the larger tapestry of your life and development, you will feel confident and solid in who you are. This week’s Full Moon in your house of relationships is reflecting your self back to you through the people you interact with. Don’t get distracted by the little stuff, Cappy.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your head is trying to get in the way of your heart, and -- not for the first time -- it’s winning. Don’t let your fear of painful experiences stop you from living, Aquarius. There’s no way to be safe all the time, and if there was we’d never grow. Don’t concern yourself with people who don’t understand you or situations that aren’t home to you anymore. Your emotional landscape is changing; and if you greet those changes, they’ll happen more gracefully, my friend.
Feb. 19-March 20
Being freed from fear is a beautiful thing. If you were functioning in a purely fearless way, what would you do differently, Pisces? Reflect on your greatest strengths and most abundant gifts this week so that you can enjoy some well-deserved new beginnings in your relationships. Behave in ways that are true to you instead of true to form; don’t let routines and habits hem you into the very things that hold you back, pal.
