Love Lanyadoo Astrology 11.28-12.04.2018
This week is going to trigger a lot of nervousness, as reactive Uranus and Mars are going to stir things up, so don’t forget to breathe, dear ones. On the 30th diplomatic Venus will form an opposition to upsetting Uranus. You can expect relationship upsets, surprises, and unexpected expenses around this date. Uranus is a disruptive force, while Venus governs what you value, who you like or love, and how things look. This can be a healing time or one that irritates you to no end. Be willing to change. Be open to the information you get, and allow it to radically shift your perspective or plans.
On the 2nd the Sun forms a challenging square to irritable Mars. This transit is likely to kick up tempers, egos, and drama. While this transit is excellent for feats of strength and courage, it can also make you foolhardy. Not every upset deserves your outrage, and not every stand is necessary for you to take. Choose your battles wisely, but know that if you’ve gotta get something done, this transit will give you the push you need.
On the 1st day of the last month of 2018, Mercury Retrogrades back into the compulsive sign of Scorpio. This will mark an emotional shift that can be a bit messy, but it’s perfectly timed. Review your relationship to the things that may be hard to talk about but are heartfelt. Scorpio governs taboos, and Retrogrades invite us to revisit topics to see what needs to change. Just beware of obsessive thoughts that inspire you to lose track of the present as you try to change or relive the past. This transit can bring a deepening of your thoughts and attitudes or a time when you dig your heels in and stay stuck; the choice is always yours.
In movies, books, and even in retrospect, there are these obvious turning points. These are pivotal moments where you just know. In the grind of real life, it’s usually much harder to know what to believe, to do, or even to feel. When you’re in it, it’s usually not as clear as when you look back at it. Now is the time to take real-life risks for what you believe in. Life can feel like it’s happening to you, but you are meant to co-create it with intention. You are alive at this time for a reason. You are a part of the world, and whether you engage or hide, you’re still participating. The astrology of these days is somewhat dire. Things will not magically improve on their own. We will advocate for each other, protect each other, and show up for each other, or we will become divided – punishing and hurting one another and the planet.
It's essential that you show up, even when it’s scary, or it doesn’t feel like you can do enough. This is a time of consequences to long-developing structures, institutions, and belief patterns.
This is your pivotal moment.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Do the damn work.
March 21-April 19
Are there things that aren't working in your life? Let those things point you towards what needs attention, Aries. You shouldn’t go in, guns blazing, trying to force change this week. Fight your desire to fix things, and instead try to sit with your impulses. You are capable of creating change, but you’ll do best if you first get clear about whether you need to start inside or rearrange things external to you. Don’t be so quick to tidy up that you make a bigger mess of things, my love.
April 20-May 20
If you allow yourself to obsess on what you think other people are feeling or saying about you, you’ll distract yourself from what's important, Taurus. The only person that you have to please is yourself. Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be authentically considerate of other people’s feelings and needs. Just don’t put the opinions and judgments of others above your own well-being. Allow yourself to sit in the discomfort of messiness without rushing to tidy it up.
May 21-June 21
The things that are bumming you out are like an instructional, and if you can allow yourself to stay with the feels, you will be able to decode the messages. The very things that are upsetting hold the answers to what you need to do next. Upset about your finances? Look at your spending, and commit to the hustle. Find that your relationships aren’t making you happy? Pour more effort and care into them. Show up to make your life thrive, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
Learning how to cope with fear is an invaluable life skill, Moonchild. Instead of allowing yourself to obsess and slip into fear-based assumptions, get really present with your situation this week. You have the chance to make meaningful changes in your life, but you’ve got to start with you. Finding your flow means acknowledging and working with the worried side of your nature, instead of in spite of it. Self-acceptance is the foundation upon which you need to build, my love.
July 23-Aug. 22
There’s much change afoot, and you have so much going for you within it all, but sadly, what you don’t have too much of is control. Strive to be interested in the events of your life without being too quick to draw conclusions, Leo. You are not responsible for everything – just your part. Do your best without rushing to take on what you don’t yet understand. This week marks a meaningful shift that you shouldn’t rush if you want to greet it wisely.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You don’t need to know what comes next in order to make good choices in the here and now. As your desire to be safe in uncertain circumstances grows, so can your defensiveness. This week is likely to test your ability to manage your fears and projections so that you can receive the information you really need. Pay extra attention to the space between your emotionally-fueled perceptions and the objective details of the situation you’re in here and now.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Sometimes the wisest thing to do is to be self-protective. The trick is to do so in a way that is transparent so that you don’t end up creating interpersonal conflicts in your efforts towards self-care. Don’t underestimate the power of a simple and warm text, dear Libra. When you need to regroup, let others know you can’t be available instead of shutting them out. Find balanced ways of taking care of yourself and the people who rely on you this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
It’s time to develop largess of spirit, dear Scorpio. You are looking too closely at all of the details and driving yourself bonks. Instead of obsessing, try breathing. Struggle is a part of being a person who feels things deeply, but you can’t solve many problems when you’re having a meltdown. Strive to be intentional about where you allow your thoughts to linger this week. In doing so you will have more internal resources to call on, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
If you’re not starting out with acceptance, you’re basically fighting reality. You’ve got too much on your plate, and if you don’t get organized, you’ll have to let something go that you don’t really want to. This week is going to bring up a lot, and if you want to handle it with grace, you must pace yourself, Sagittarius. Know yourself well enough to know what you can do in a healthy way, and strive to have the foresight to make intentional compromises, my love.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
The best way out of chaos and frustration is to find your yes, Capricorn. Instead of looking for problems, seek the potential, the opportunity, or the lesson. Align yourself with what you want to get out of a situation, and it becomes easier to say no to what you don’t want and even make wise compromises when they’re needed. Having trust in your inner guidance only makes sense when you take the time to resource it; reconnect with your raison d’etre this week.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
People are annoying at times, but you can be too. Try to avoid acting out of annoyance this week. The feeling of being stuck or thwarted is awful, but it’s not the end of the world. This week will test your patience, but if you are able to stay present and rise to the challenge, it can mark an excellent period of growth for you. Don’t sink to the worst elements in the room; rise to the occasion and be your best self, allowing others to do what they’re gonna do.
Feb. 19-March 20
It’s an excellent time to get things done in the material world this week. Create or shore up plans, follow through with commitments, do the work. You haven’t got a Midas touch, but the roots you lay down now will be strong. Make sure that your actions line up with your intentions, Pisces. If you prioritize how you do what you do, your process will get streamlined, and your outcomes will be that much more reliable. You’ve got this, my love.
