Love Lanyadoo Astrology 5.13-19.2015
Mercury goes Retrograde on the 19th, but you are likely to be feeling it all week. Give yourself extra time getting places, and be extra careful to be forthright. This week’s theme is “Don’t pout; talk it out!”, my friends.
March 21-April 19
People are always telling each other to ‘just be yourself,’ but how do you do that when you’re not even sure what that means? This week, identity issues are messing with you, but that’s not exactly a bad thing. You’ve been holding on to attitudes, people, or habits that are keeping you stuck in a time warp; and you’re not progressing. Let it go, Aries. Embrace who and what you are right here, right now, and take your next steps from there.
April 20-May 20
You can resist change all you want, but it’s no good. The question is not if you’ll change, it’s how. So here’s my advice: choose the thing that you know you need to let go of, and don’t let your fear of mourning its loss stop you from moving on. You deserve to be happy, but sometimes it requires going through a rough passage to get there. Let your heart heal by letting go of whatever you know in your heart of hearts you’ve outgrown.
May 21-June 21
You are on your way. There’s something huge happening for you, Gemini, and you can take it in and bring it to the next level, or you can chill here and enjoy the view. It’s not a “right”/”wrong” thing, but it’s important that you know that you’re at a precipice, and it’s on you to decide where you’ll go from here. Let your confidence this week boost you into action, and don’t let the Mercury retrograde stop you. Let it be a reminder to be hella intentional with what you say and how you sez it.
June 22-July 22
Get ‘er done, Moonchild. Stay focused and deal as systematically as you can with your goals. You know what you need to do, and you know how to get it done. The only thing that might get in your way is your own emotional landscape. There’s a lot going on in your life and in the world at large, and it’s okay to feel overwhelmed by it all. Be kind to yourself as you parse out what you need, and you’ll be just fine this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
It’s simply not possible to get everything done all at once, Leo, but that doesn’t mean that you’re failing or flailing either. Your anxieties are kicked up because you know what you want so clearly that you can taste it, but somehow it’s still out of reach. Chillax! The good news is that you’re on the right path to getting it done and that all you need is more time and more patience. Protect your investments by using the time that you’re given to fortify your vision, pal.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you feel overwhelmed and have a case of the sads, it’s not the time to rationally uncover the hidden motives of the people around you, forge new plans, or generally make sense of the world. It’s time to take care of good ol’ Number One (that’s you, dummy). Prioritize your emotional wellness this week by first making it okay to be so emo at all. Seek out supportive conditions for you to lick your wounds in, and have faith that this too shall pass, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Things are exactly as they’re meant to be, Libra. If you are not able to see the fruits of your labors this week, you are either: A) not looking hard enough nor being grateful for what you’ve got, or B) totally on the wrong track. To right yourself all you’ve gotta do is align with the things and people that bring you joy and fill you up. Life is not supposed to be easy all the time, but if you’re honoring your needs, the struggle is totally worth the payoff.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You can’t figure things out through the fine art of obsession, no matter how much of an expert you are. Gather up your strength and get ready to do the work you need to do, Scorpio, but don’t do it yet! You need to figure out what you’re feeling as a knee jerk reaction versus what you’re feeling based on your actual needs. Trust me when I tell you that it’s worth the wait to get right with yourself before you go making a mess of things with your good intentions and anxieties all tangled up.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You know how they say ‘you can’t polish a turd’? Well, they’re totally right. No matter how positive a spin you put on a thing, if it’s turdesque it’ll still stink. Instead of being upbeat, try going for real acceptance this week. You are where you are, and it is what it is. Only from this place can you move forward and heal your wounds, my friend. Embrace your sore spots this week, and that act of kindness will kick you off to a phase of meaningful growth.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Things are not where you want them to be, and that hecka sucks. You can mope, sulk, or engage in any other unpleasantness, but for why, Cappy Mon Capitan? You’re exactly where you need to be. Learn the art of patience, which not only requires waiting but also faith. Without the faith part, waiting is torture because all you can do is assume the worst. Assume the best for once why don’t you? It’ll do you and the folks around you a world of good.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
All you’ve gotta do is follow through, Aquarius. You don’t need to innovate new ideas or even do any major spring cleaning this week. It’s all about reconnecting with those friends you’ve been missing, finishing up the projects you started, and continuing your efforts to achieve your big-picture plans. And that’s it. while things never happen as quickly as you’d like, it certainly looks like they’re coming together; so keep it going solid and steady, pal.
Feb. 19-March 20
What upsets you the most needs care and attention, so don’t shrink away from it, Pisces. Your fears are meant to be your teachers this week, so listen to what they are trying to tell you. Instead of crumbling under their weight, let them teach you a little about yourself. If you can better understand what’s motivating you, you can start to make different choices when you get freaked out. Kindness and flexibility are some of your best qualities, so don’t forget to use them liberally.
