Love Lanyadoo Astrology 10.24-30.2018
The opposite of love isn’t hate; it’s indifference. Your life, your relationships, your blocks, and the whole wide world around you need your care. This week it’s time for you to express that caring in tangible ways. It’s Scorpio Season, and that means you're meant to go deep and get real. Engage your hopes, and learn from your fears.
This week kicks off with a Full Moon in Taurus on the 24th, and it’s going to be an explosive one. The potential here is to have your blocks and inhibitions popped free, to create more presence and passion in your life. This transit is a powerful force for change, as Uranus works with the Moon to reveal what was hidden and to show you tools you may not have known you possessed. You can expect the unexpected, and more importantly, this is a time for powerful and progressive change. Full Moons are always a time for you to shed old skin, to release what you’re no longer authentically aligned with. Whenever Uranus is involved, it’s wise to replace the question Why is this happening to me? with What is the opportunity in this situation? You can expect your relationships to people, money, or yourself to be impacted on a major level, and that's actually really good. Be open to change. Embrace the upsets that are necessary for you to grow, even if you aren’t confident about what comes next.
Between the 25th and 30th, we have a series of transits that will accelerate your potential for moving projects forward, for engaging in collaboration, and for deepening understanding. The Sun will be exactly conjunct Venus on the 26th, marking this as a beautiful time for expressing your love. Don’t let your love be limited to words; pursue acts of kindness, generosity, and grace of spirit.
On the 27th the Sun forms an exact sextile to Saturn, creating a sense of stability and the energy with which to create or tend to lasting structures.
On the 29th Mercury will meet Jupiter in the sky, and this is a good time for big ideas, big reveals, and the forging of successful plans. This transit favors big picture planning, and can inspire you to be a bit sloppy with details, so don’t forget to pay attention to the little things.
Finally, on the 30th Mercury moves into opinionated Sagittarius; this can mark a time of heightened storytelling and more active listening. It can also lend to a bunch of people shouting from one soapbox to another. Have the open mind that you want to see in the world.
P.S. – Register to vote! It’s a low risk, high yield action, and there’s nothing to not like about those odds.
March 21-April 19
The Moon is full, and that means it’s time to drop down from your hyperactive head and into your tender heart, Aries. This week may greet you with a thousand what ifs, but it’s not your job to divine the future. All you need is to be here now. Let go of the past, and step away from speculation for just long enough to regroup; it’s time for you to act with intention, and that can only be done if you’re not caught up in a cycle of reactions. Breathe, my love.
April 20-May 20
The Full Moon in your sign on the 24th represents a huge shift in energy for you, Taurus. You can expect something to come unglued – for better or for worse – but either way it will portend a much-needed shift in energy. The key is to be open to how this upset can support and expand your life instead of aligning yourself with how it may limit you. It’s time for you to embody the changes that you’ve been thinking about; dare to be great, my love.
May 21-June 21
It’s time for some serious TLC. You’ve been stretched in too many directions, and it’s finally caught up with you. Instead of trying to figure out what you should do, or god forbid, adding anything more to your plate, it’s time to regain your strength. Set aside some time this week to make yourself unavailable to anyone, and get reconnected with your heart from the secure location of your body. Remember who you are, and choose to love that person, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
Instead of trying to control the feelings and actions of others, you can let it all go, Moonchild. Let people and situations reveal themselves to you this week, and really listen to what they say. While you love to love, it’s sometimes hard to determine whether to lean in or give it space. Now is the time to let others do their thing and to focus on your own needs, actions, and responsibilities. Some things in life are inevitable, some things are not; manage what you have agency around, my love.
July 23-Aug. 22
In order to grow into the person you want to be, you inevitably need to outgrow some things. This week’s Full Moon is going to reveal something important to you about yourself, your life, or the world around you – potentially all three. You’re likely to feel that you need to change in a big way in order to create the peace that you want in your life, but paradoxically, this change will bring about upsets. Don’t confuse the journey with the destination, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you’re feeling exhausted or undone is exactly when you need to take a break. No matter how pressing your problems are, this week it’s wise to prioritize your own wellness. Align yourself with gratitude for what you have. Try to make a list of five things that you can be truly appreciative of, from the warmth of the Sun to the love in your life. It won’t fix all your problems, but it will help you to have the resiliency you need to get through.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Following your heart is a beautiful thing, but it doesn’t mean that you should abandon discretion. Saying ‘no’ isn’t a rejection, it’s a boundary. Having a different opinion isn’t being difficult, it’s being real. This week you are meant to make headway with how you assert and maintain your limits. It is absolutely possible to do this with kindness, but this requires you to believe that you have a right to your perspective. Believing in yourself makes it easier to love with healthy limits, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
The Full Moon in your relationship house this week is an opportunity for a huge heart opening, Scorpio. How you love, who you love, and how you seek to protect yourself from harm is activated in your chart. Look within at the ways that you may be conditional in your care and support of yourself and others, and be willing to grow beyond them. This may be a bit of a rocky moment for your connections, but ultimately it’s a chance for you to love more deeply and to let yourself be loved, dear Scorpio.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
When you let go of your attachments to how you think things are ”supposed to be,” you can start to accept how they actually are. You are exactly where you need to be, Sagittarius. There is no other way it can be. If you can start where you are, you can have the most relief and make the greatest impact with your actions. It’s time to stop fighting yourself; it's time to embrace this moment, to embrace this skin you're in. From a place of self acceptance, you are an unstoppable force, my love.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Find your inner light, Capricorn. This isn’t meant as an abstract woo-wooism. Find the heat that burns within you. Align yourself with the resiliency that is inherent in your nature, and let that guide you. This week, circumstances may make you feel like you’re spinning your wheels or standing out on a ledge, and that may be true, but it’s not bad. In order to grow, you have to be willing to outgrow some things. In order to thrive, you need to be willing to reject mediocrity.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You’re at the end, Aquarius. You have worked long and hard to get to this point, and it’s probably nothing like you expected it to be. Don’t confuse the way that things appear with how they really are. Temper your reactions to things that trigger you so that you can clearly determine what is called for. You’re on the verge of something new. Don’t get distracted or derailed; follow your heart as you strive to have more happiness, more heart, and more value in your day-to-day.
Feb. 19-March 20
When you assert your boundaries, you run the risk of hurting people’s feels or making a mistake in how you express yourself. That said, boundaries are like any other skill: practice makes perfect. Just because it’s hard or uncertain doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t challenge yourself to be the best, most present, and whole version of you that you can be. Own your shortcomings as you step into greater ownership of your time, energy, and life, Pisces.
