March 21-April 19
If you don’t stand up for what you need, you’ll end up being a resentful weirdo, Aries. It’s on you to honor your own needs because nobody is going to show up and offer you every one of your desires on a platter. That being said, asking for what you want doesn’t ensure that you’ll get it either. Just do you this week, and respond to people with a level head. Keep it kind and be a straight shooter and you’ll be just fine, pal.
April 20-May 20
There are the actions you choose to pursue, and then there’s the spiritual cost. This week you would be wise to reconcile the two because if you don’t you’re likely to feel anxious and uncertain of what you’re doing, Taurus. There’s success on the material plane, and then there’s gluttony; and you need to be clear about the difference between what you need, what you want, and the why of it all. Be honest about what’s driving you so that you can have peace of mind on your way up.
May 21-June 2
You have allies that want to be there for you, Twin Star. You are tasked with learning how to ask for and receive help this week. You don’t always have to put your best self out there -- it’s OK to be half-baked some times. Your work is to know your self well enough to know what you need a hand with and then to let yourself be vulnerable enough to ask for help. You’re meant to be learning about boundaries with people; it’s good for the soul, even though it’s messy work some times.
June 22-July 22
You’re free, Moonchild, but freedoms come with a price tag. How you handle yourself and everything you do has consequences, and you need to pony up and own that. If you’ve been so busy doing you that you’ve ignored or been weird with your homies, it’s time to deal with the domino effect that’s created. You are not a victim, and this is not a rehearsal. Mean what you say and say what you mean, even if that requires you to speak less this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
How you deal with difficult situations is not only telling about who you are, it also reflects the essential set of skills for maintaining your emo and mental health, too. This week you’re likely to be dealing with a bunch of crap, but said merde needn’t define you. Stay connected to the things and people that bring you joy, and don’t take on more than you can handle. Having good boundaries requires a healthy assessment of what you need in the moment. If you don’t have that, work on it till you do, pal.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Kindness is King. Shower it on yourself, the jerk at the coffee shop, your mom, and your BFF. But don’t get it twisted, Virgo - being kind doesn’t mean being a martyr or giving everyone what they want. Kindness is a practice of showing up with realness, compassion, and virtue. The consequences of actions stemming from such motives will be ones you can live with, even if they’re not what you prefer. Step up and dish it out, my love.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Yup, you’re in it. It sucks, it’s scary, and it feels like there’s so much on the line; but you’ve got to deal with it, my friend. Things are changing in big, deep ways. If you struggle to fix or repress the feelings that’re coming up, you’ll only end up being more stressed. The only answer is to go with the flow, Libra. It’s likely to take you to a place where all you can do is let go, so don’t confuse the difficult work of emotional presence with inactivity. Tread gently, sweet one.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Secure your foundations, Scorpio. Whether that means you need to connect to your body, spend quality time with your family, or pay your bills, this week you will feel freed up by making sure your roots are well tended. There is great potential building up within your life, but it’ll take the proper tying up of loose ends to do it justice. Get ready for the future by dealing with your past this week.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Humility is the thing that you feel when you can be accountable to the truth (the good, bad, and the ugly of it) without attachment. When you can own your part without guilt and commit to learning from your mistakes, you’re in the zone, my friend. This week you may feel the tug of obsession, resentments, or self-reproach, but don’t give in to it. Make use of your errors with grace and compassion, Sagittarius, so they lift you up and aid you in your path.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Having a clear set of boundaries requires that you know what you will and what you won’t, and you’re kinda a maybe about all that right now. Get clear and organized about what you’re committed to, so you can figure out whether or not you’re on board versus just going through the motions. You can’t change having to compromise in life, but you can be more honest with yourself about your ril motives. Own your shit and do what’s right for you, Capricorn.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
If it doesn’t give you energy, it isn’t true for you, Aquarius. Instead of spinning your wheels on stuff that technically works but brings you no joy, this week is all about getting perspective on what you want to build your life around. You can be happy, but you need to prioritize it first. Don’t be scared of change, even when you can’t see what’s around the bend. Put your heart and welfare before your ego, my friend, and you can’t go wrong.
Feb. 19-March 20
You’re changing, Pisces. Are you getting smaller? Bigger? Are you becoming more yourself or more of what you think you “should” be? These are questions for you to be grappling with, because they are ultimately all about you becoming the you ya really wanna be. Your relationships are the stage that this is all likely to be playing out on, so look to your intimacy themes for opportunities to fine-tune your relationship to your own sweet self this week.
