March 21-April 19
Watch yourself, Aries, because in your haste to get away from all the bad feels and thoughts you’re having, you may make things much worse. Instead of assuming the absolute worst this week, try cultivating an interest in your situation. There are so many unknowns in life, and if you’re not torturing yourself by expecting them to all turn sour on you, you’ll end up having more creative energy to actually cope with them. Let matters develop before you freak out too much as you take care of your heart this week.
April 20-May 20
Watch out for defensive feelings, Taurus, because they’re symptoms of you not feeling secure about yourself; and they come with the risk of acting out about it (yay). There’s a lot of crap in the air, and you’re likely to take other people’s issues personally this week. It’s easy to be generous and kind when you’re feeling confident, but the real test of your character is how you act when you’re off your game. Act in accordance with your values, especially when it’s tempting not to this week.
May 21-June 21
You need to be strong in order to move through the deep changes you’re engaged in, Twin Star. The trouble is that it’s easy to confuse rigidity with strength when you’re feeling scared. Look out for your ego acting out in any number of ways this week. You’re sorting through some old fears, and it’s likely to bring up hecka deep stuff for you to figure out. Don’t let fears convince you that what feels bad now is all you’ll ever have; don’t confuse the path with the destination, my friend.
June 22-July 22
This is one of those times that you have to make the decision to bend or break, Moonchild. If you’re not being true to yourself, what’s the point? Instead of weaving a tale about what everyone else is going to think, feel, and want if you do or don’t do that next thing, just try and do you. If you took fear out of the equation, how different would your choices be? Now ask yourself this, friend: are your fears keeping you safe, or stuck? Take heart and then take some risks this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
You can make up all the excuses you want, lover bean, but it’s not gonna make you feel better about things. You’re a star, and you can convince yourself of anything if you try hard enough, but it’d be wise not to use this Leo superpower on yourself. Deal with the unpleasant truths you’ve been confronted with, even if all you can do right now is feel about it. All you’ve got is the here and now, and all you need to do is take care of yourself in it, one day atta time.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You’ve just gotta let go, Virgo. There’s no way around change, but you have the free will to choose how you’ll participate in it. The pain of healing has fewer distractions to it and in some ways can be lonelier than the pain of tearing apart, but it’s much, much better. Dare to outgrow what (or who) you know isn’t working for you. Embrace your feelings and needs, even when they suck this week.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You’re so good at managing your relationships that you can do it in your sleep. The trouble with those awesome people skills of yours is that you can hide behind them, and when you do that nobody wins. Being capable of pretending to be cool with something you’re not actually feeling or going out when you’d rather hide in bed are invaluable tools, but they need a control knob. Show up as your complicated, odd, and wonderful self this week, even if habit would have you be accommodating instead of authentic, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There’s an art to embodying vulnerability, and it’s all about doing it in ways that are true to who you are and where you’re at. With the full Moon on the 24th you’re likely to be feeling all kinds of ways, and that’s OK. Sort through your feelings without needing to get attention while you’re doing it, Scorpio. Strive to be more connected to yourself and things will get clear; your healthiest relationships will deepen around you, and your easy come/easy go people will fade away.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
True strength requires the courage to do what’s right when the time comes, even if that means doing nothing. This week you’re on call to get hella Meta with your choices, ‘Tarius. The big picture is demanding your vision and effort, and investing your energies in that direction’ll reward you. Not every shiny thing can keep its glimmer; stop messing with cheap imitations when you can have the real thing.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Change is usually terrifying, even when it’s an upgrade. The unknown has a funny way of looking scary when you get up close with it, and it’s easy for your mind to go in all the wrong directions in the face of it. Your anxieties will try to send you off course this week, but don’t let ‘em Cappy, mi Capitán. You’re ready to drop what you’ve been gripping on to and to have your arms open to whatever comes next. The letting go is just the first step of the starting fresh.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
People love to talk about inner peace, but the trouble is in finding it. it’s not possible to think your way into a place of balance, Water Bearer; you’ve gotta feel your way there if you want to stick around for any length of time. As annoying as it may feel, this week and it’s full Moon want you to hunker down in a pool of your own emotion and just float. Don’t fix or figure out anything; just receive and accept your feelings without an agenda this week.
Feb. 19-March 20
The biggest mistake you can make is to put pressure on yourself when you’re already feeling messed up, Pisces. You’re moving through deep emotional terrain, and if you add overwhelm to the mix, things are bound to get real soupy, real quick. Take a time out; find a minute, an hour, or ideally a day in which you can just relax and regroup. If you allow yourself to continue running on empty, you’re likely to hit a wall.
