Love Lanyadoo Astrology 8.24-30.2016
Mercury goes Retrograde on the 30th, so expect things to slow down all week as we build towards the main event.
March 21-April 19
The role that anxiety plays in your thinking can’t be bullied or shushed into submission, Aries. This week is all about reigning in your scattered energies and tending to some much needed self-care. You’re on call to make some changes to how you handle yourself, but if those shifts are only superficial they won't be enough to carry you through. Strive find a sense of inner balance before you go shaking things up. Seek transformation, not chaos. Seek transformation, not chaos, dear one.
April 20-May 20
You know how self-help people like to say that super annoying thing about how everything you do is perfect? It’s totally true. And not true at all, of course. The thing is that you wouldn’t be you if the very things that happened to you had never occurred. There’s a larger picture to your life, and if you can have faith in that, then the harsh, confusing, or upsetting stuff can be just another life experience instead of something that you define yourself with. Learn from the unpleasant to make stuff so that going through it is worth your while.
May 21-June 21
You’ve been holding yourself back, Gemini, but it’s unclear why. Instead of fighting yourself and feeling paralyzed, it’s time to unpack your motives so that you can better understand why you’re stuck where you are. If you let your fear of being alone dominate your intentions, you’ll remain in the cycle you’ve been in for the last while. Focus your attention on being whole (as opposed to scattered) this week, and the rest will fall right into place.
June 22-July 22
The problem with resentments is that they eat you up from the inside. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have a right to be frustrated with things that have happened in the past – recent or otherwise – but you’ve gotta get a better way of coping, Moonchild. Take note of how and where you consent to participating in the most annoying parts of your life. Resonating with your yes will make it easier to hold your no’s in balance.
July 23-Aug. 22
You’ve got this! This week you can expect that your vision is clear and that you’re able to work through whatever is on your plate, Leo. Don’t worry about what you can’t control because there’s so much that you’re able to enjoy and improve upon that’s finally available to you. Here’s a pro tip to making the most of this stellar energy: make sure that you want the right things. Align yourself with what will bring you the most long-term happiness instead of what’s a passing pleasure.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
The way to combat worry this week is by taking action, Virgo. Feeling helpless or stuck is the pits, but there’s always something you can do; even if you can only think of small actions, set achievable, life-affirming goals for yourself that you know you can make good on in the next coupe of days. Whether you tackle self-care or professional goals, the strategy should be the same. By taking control of the little things, you’ll have more energy and confidence to deal with the big stuff.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
When things get messy in your thinking or in your heart, that’s exactly when you feel driven toward answers. The problem is that you’re not likely to make the best use of 411 when you’re feeling all kinds of off, my love. Instead of searching for fixes, try adjusting to your circumstances this week. Find ways of being present, even when it’s uncomfortable, and you’re likely to find that a bunch of stuff just falls into place from there. For best results, don’t try so hard, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There’s helluv energy to help you move forward! Be open to breakthroughs and sudden insights that actually work. You’ve been sludging through some deep stuff, and it may have felt like you were treading water for a while now, Scorpio. Luckily, you can expect some helpful shifts this week, so make the most of it by engaging with the things that are important to you while keeping your eyes on the prize, lover. Don’t create security to make happiness; it works best the other way around.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
There’s what you think, and there’s what you feel; and when you’re lucky, they’re lined up with each other. This week you may need to parse out where your feelings aren’t clicking with your attitudes. Make sure that you haven’t created a narrative to justify your emotions, or worse, pretended that you don’t feel how you really do. Embrace the duality inside of you so that you can come to a place of happy wholeness, Sagittarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You can focus on what you don’t have or turn your attention towards what you’ve got – the choice is yours, Cappy. This week your perspective will either really help or really hurt you, so challenge yourself to take stock of the abundance you already have. If you find that it’s hard to see your advantages, try this: look for something that you love, and find three things related to it to be grateful for. Take stock of what brings you joy and satisfaction. Repeat liberally.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You’ve got great ideas about what you wanna do and where you wanna be, and they’re giving you life. Make light plans this week before Mercury Retrograde sets in on the 30th, but be flexible. Things are likely to change of their own volition; so if you get too attached to how you want them to turn out now, you may be in for some annoying surprises. Don’t worry that you’re in for bad luck ‘cause you’re not. Make space for the unexpected, and you’ll be great.
Feb. 19-March 20
Don’t let other people define you, Pisces. Your truth gets to be all yours, even if the people around you don’t see or feel it the same way you do. Notice how you bend to other peoples’ preferences without even meaning to, and quit that noise. You’re perfectly lovely as you are; give others a chance to see that, my love. This week you’re on call to be authentic, even when it’s awkward and honest, even when a teensy-tiny lie seems easier.
