Love Lanyadoo Astrology 12.14-20.2016
Mercury goes Retrograde on the 19th, so be ready for this week to bring lags and upsets to your plans, friend.
March 21-April 19
Not only will it not work to try to control things that are not your business to be in charge of, but it will make you feel anxious too. Your self-esteem is being tested, Aries, and the best way to handle it is by seeking balance, not dominion. Sometimes the process is more important than the product that you’re seeking, but you’ll never get to know that if you’re too busy pushing your agenda. Strive to find peace in your off moments, and reflect rather than refine this week.
April 20-May 20
You’re ready to confront some deep relationship patterns that have been hiding in your blind spots, and it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Instead of trying to fix anyone or convince them of how fabulous you are, all you have to do is be yourself. Shine your light as bright as you can, and engage in life-affirming, happy-making activities this week. That’s it. those who support you have your best interests at heart, and those who don’t simply need to get out of your way.
May 21-June 21
Sometimes things are just fine, and you can leave it at that; and at other times it’s simply not enough. How happy do you truly want to be, Twin Star? Wanting to avoid unhappiness is not the same as truly choosing joy. You have to reconcile your desire for comfort with your impatience to make a change, any change, to get away from unpleasant feels. Make considered improvements, and if you can’t do that, spend some time taking nurturing care of your heart.
June 22-July 22
You’re overwhelmed and that’s fair enough. Take the time to look at what you’re doing, from your day-to-day habits to the way you’re talking about your stresses, and see where you have room for change. It’s really hard to stay open-hearted when you feel like you’re crumbling, Moonchild. Be your own guide, and innovate new ways that actually work for where you’re at in the here and now. Change is hard when you feel unstable, but it’s what you need most this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
The bummer about relationships is also the good part; people change. In order for a relationship to grow, all parties have to be growing in complimentary ways, together. When that doesn’t happen, there can be conflicts and misunderstandings. Catch your assumptions, and own up to the things you’re taking for granted in your relationships. Be willing to change or be changed by the people and dynamics that you hold most dear, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you take initiative, it’s both empowering and frightening; pursuing what you want with your whole heart can be like that. Don’t let your fear of loss or failure overcome your drive for success, loveliness, and joy in your life. Asserting yourself can make you a target, it’s true; but it’s better to take your chances in pursuit of something you love than to be safe and inauthentic. Your anxieties are nothing but distractions; don’t let them undo you this week.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
This isn’t a great time to add anything new to your list of responsibilities. Infuse life and energy into your projects, Libra. Ask for help from your most inspiring friends. Look for ways of staying constructively involved in the stuff you care about, and try to squeeze in some time for chilling out. You’re on call to create a healthy work/life balance, and that isn’t easy when you’re already overcommitted. Do what you can with what you’ve got this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
The worst thing you can do is right now is allow yourself to obsess on things you resent, even if you’re really, really right to have those feelings. The problem with power struggles is that as soon as you engage in them, you’re pretty much validating the worthiness of that struggle. Only process with people you trust this week, Scorpio. Repetitive thought is like prayer; don’t pray at the alter of what you hate. Turn your thoughts to what you want to cultivate in your life instead.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Negative thoughts, especially repetitive ones, have a way of messing with your self-esteem. This week you’re likely to have a case of the sads, but that doesn’t mean that you need to weave a narrative to match your feelings. Allow your heart to hurt without seeking explanations, ‘Tarius. If your ego smarts, that sucks but it’s also OK; don’t let temporal things convince you that you’re stuck, my love.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Don’t be a bully, baby; you want to be ready to move on, but that doesn’t mean that you are. If you try and push yourself beyond what you can emotionally handle, you’ll only end up feeling worse than when you started, Cappy. As Mercury goes Retrograde in your sign this week, it’s time to take a pause and reflect on your life. Is it your attitudes or actions that need refining? Regardless of how impatient you’re feeling, the best course is to recharge yourself and reassess your situation.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
When you’re overloaded emotionally, it compromises your objectivity. When you’re hella overloaded emotionally, it drains you of your resiliency and even your will to improve things. First and foremost, you need a break, Aquarius. Stop trying to transform things you’re not happy with before you understand the nuances of what’s wrong and what you can and can’t do to help. Get centered before you get on your high horse this week, or you won’t like what happens next.
Feb. 19-March 20
Seeking understanding is a beautiful thing, Pisces, but in order to achieve it, you must have acceptance. You keep on coming up with answers that you don’t quite like, and it’s been hard for you to accept what you’re being shown. Don’t obsess or blame yourself, my love. Strive to accept yourself, others, your community, and the world as it is right now. Only by being here now can you truly know what needs changing.
