Love Lanyadoo Astrology 9.16-22.2016
Mercury is officially Retrograde, people. Be open to looking at things in new ways, and be patient with the little stuff.
March 21-April 19
If you assert yourself prematurely, you’ll end up being confusing to the people you’re trying to step up around, Aries. No matter how badly you want the answers, you should not pretend to have them before you feel clear or rush yourself. This week, Mercury will start its Moonwalk and you won’t be alone in feeling a little rattled; but you are only responsible for you. Be patient as you take the time to find what’s right for you, even if it feels like it’s taking forever.
April 20-May 20
If you check in with yourself, I mean if you were to really take the time to listen to what your insides said, would you still be on board with your plans? This week you are on call to change, Taurus. You’ve gotta look at where you’re just doing what you think you’re “supposed to” do and ask yourself if that’s still true for you. You’ve got this one life to live, so don’t hide behind obligation and fear. Become the person that you want to be by choosing it in ways big and small.
May 21-June 2
You’re getting there, Gemini. There’s so much potential for you to grab hold of that it’d be a waste to stay stuck in old worries. You’ve got this. All you’ve got to do is follow this simple, two-part plan: first, follow through on your commitments. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Next, be kind. Be generous of spirit to yourself and others, even when it’d be easier to get caught up in divisive thinking. You’re gonna get what you put out there, pal.
June 22-July 22
Meet life in the middle, Moonchild. If you struggle against change, you’ll only end up creating more jagged edges to things instead of successfully slowing them down. Be creative! Assert what you know, and yield until people or circumstances reveal their next moves to you. If you can let things unfold, you’ll find that all that stuff you think you know is not as rock solid as you suppose. Collaborate with fate this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
Your self-esteem is the crapper, and that can’t feel good. Instead of waiting for things to go your way, its time you love yourself enough to turn them around. You know what you need. What you’re on the fence about is whether you deserve it or can get it at all. It’s far better to fail in pursuit of what’s true for you than to settle for accessible and safe. Stop worrying so much about how things will turn out, and start investing in you, Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Yup. You still don’t know, and the uncertainty should be driving you crazy right about now. This week you should be on guard against projecting out your worries and seeing problems where there aren’t any. Your relationships are OK; maybe not perfect, certainly a work in progress, but for this moment they are not your biggest problem. Don’t let yourself get distracted by other people, and stay focused on what you’re consenting to participate in and why.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
If the people around you are sad, it is kind to show compassion and lend an ear. You don’t have to take on their sads in order to be supportive though, Libra. It’s essential that you have healthy boundaries with the people you care about, especially if they’re going through a rough time. Pace yourself through social engagements, and do what you need to do to stay healthy this week. Security comes through happiness, not the other way around.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There are a million reasons to just blurt shit out: to get it off your chest, because you want to satisfy your need for justice, or to prove a point. That’s the stuff that may be satisfying to say but that won’t necessarily give you the results you desire. This week strive to say what you need the other person to hear instead of just what you need to release, Scorpio. Communicate effectively during this Mercury Retrograde by being intentional about what comes out of your pie hole.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Friendship is everything. First, you’ve gotta be your own BFF because if you’re not looking out for your best interests, life can be such a sticky mess. Having people that you trust by your side makes life so much more exciting and inspiring, even if it’s also more complicated and hard. Invest in cherished ones, Sagittarius. Platonic love can help to heal your heart and support you as you grow in the big, beautiful direction you’re headed.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You don’t have enough information to know what comes next, Cappy, but that doesn’t mean that anything is wrong or bad. Try not to confuse feeling judgmental towards yourself with other people hating on you, and if you don’t know what’s going on, try not to expect the worst this week. You are your worst enemy, so try to chill out! Be kind to yourself, and let those good vibes overflow into the rest of your life, however they will.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your anxieties have got you in their icy grip and it ain’t pretty, my sweets. Instead of fighting against the currents in your life, try clarifying your vision this week. Reconnect with your goals. Take note of why you’re trying so hard or why you dropped the ball. If your actions are in contrast to your big or small-picture plans, use this Mercury Retrograde time to regroup. Change your mind or change your ways to regain control in your life, Aquarius.
Feb. 19-March 20
If you assert yourself but apologize profusely about it the whole time, you’re kind of undoing your work before it can yield any results. You have the right to have preferences and needs, and you have the responsibility to be upfront about them. It’s that simple! You don’t have to please everyone, Pisces. You don’t have to package yourself or earn the right to ask for what you need, and people don’t have to like what you have to say or agree with you. Just show up, pal.
