Expect intensity around the 1st as powerful Mars forms a square to transformative Pluto. Both of these planets have a tendency to fester or fight, and this transit can provoke power struggles, conflict, demanding egos, and destructive obsessions. It can also give you the push you need to be courageous and strong and to move through intense or difficult things. Avoid vindictive or ruthless behavior because when it comes to Pluto, what you put out there will come back at you – with force. No matter how offended or upset you are, this is the time to act with integrity and intention.
Thankfully, on the 2nd Venus will form a harmonious trine to Uranus. This transit, plus the Mercury sextile to Jupiter on the 3rd, will bring about good feelings, potentially lovely connections, and a sense of options. The best use of this energy is to look with intention at your relationships. You may have people that you need to reach out to, express your love for, or whose company you just need to enjoy. These transits facilitate flow with the little things in a way that supports the big picture, so buyer beware: if you’re relating to others in ways that are destructive or unhealthy, you can generate a fluidity there too, which you’ll have to answer to at a different time.
Finally, on the 4th we have a New Moon at 1.04pmPST. New Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are at the exact same degree of the same sign, and this one is happening at 15*45’ of Aquarius. This is a potent time for expanding your vision for your future and daring to want more for yourself. Pay attention to messages and connections around this time, and stay open to potential. You’re likely to have opportunities emerge around this date, but not all that glitters is gold! Just because you want something, doesn’t mean that it’s good for you, and just because you can take it on, doesn’t mean that it’s wise. Be wary of acting out of ego or pride because if you do, you’re likely to feel agitated, even if you get what you set out for. Consider your desires in concert with those of the people around you. Interconnectedness may seem like an abstract theory, but it’s not – it’s one of the most essential truths of life. Act in ways that support the wellness of your relationship to yourself and others as well as your connection to your environment. Upsets may emerge around this time, but with them will come opportunities to get free and get whole.
March 21-April 19
If you can’t engage in a productive way, it’s best to take a step back, Aries. This week is likely to kick up a great deal of intensity in you and others, and the worst thing you could do is turn your hurt or anger into vengefulness and resentment. Allow yourself to have all of your feelings without needing to act on them or even vocalize them right away. Sit with your impulses, and make sure that they are operating in accordance with your intentions, my love.
April 20-May 20
As much as you love things to be packaged and tidy, this isn’t the time to rush your progress, Taurus. This week will yield some exciting opportunities, but if you try to take on too much too soon, you’ll end up creating more stress and unrest than you need. It’s your time to shine, but that doesn’t mean you need to turn the wattage all the way up. Allow for your evolution to happen in stages that give you room to adjust, my love.
May 21-June 21
You need to let go, Twin Star, and there’s no one who can do it for you. Whether you need to quit something or someone, the time has come for you to stop looking outside of yourself for answers and to get more grounded about what you want this month, this quarter, and this year. The steps that are immediately in front of you may feel mysterious, but they don’t need to be. It doesn’t have to be perfect to be right, and it doesn’t need to offer immediate gratification to be the quickest way forward.
June 22-July 22
Your emotions are compelling and personal and a huge part of you being you. They are a central point of how you experience and express yourself, and that doesn’t need to change now or ever. That said, when someone else has their own experience, their feelings are equally valid and important. This week, you’re likely to have to deal with situations in which others see things differently from you. Strive to not take it personally, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
All the adoration and validation in the world won’t help you if you aren’t engaged in a loving friendship with yourself. This week will test your self-esteem, and no amount of pride or ambition will help you this time, Leo. Look to your actions and the spirit with which they were set in motion. It’s time to own how far you’ve come honestly, to take stock of where you're at and how you got here, and to determine what needs to come next, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you prioritize understanding, it's tempting to ignore your emotions as irrelevant data, but they absolutely aren't. It’s hard to know what to let go of and what to hold on to when you’re caught in the grips of panic, so the first thing to do when you’re really upset is to deal with your feelings. Make use of all the information your senses are pulling in this week, Virgo, so that you can have peace with the choices you make. Don't just do what's "right".
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You alone have to live with your choices, so choose wisely. It’s not about being right or wrong, it’s about being honest with yourself about what you can handle, what you have to offer, and what you need. There are many ways you can handle what’s in front of you, Libra, but most of them will require some major concessions. Balance your needs with the needs of others this week, and compromise in ways that don’t compromise you.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Whether or not you made a mistake isn’t as important as what you do next, Scorpio. The time has passed for trying to figure out how you got here, and it’s now time to figure out what you’re gonna do about it. Strive to be the change you wish to see in your life, and attempt to be the bigger person in your situation. If you can have compassion and patience for all parties, you’ll be able to see the path forward and make peace with whether you choose to walk it or not.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
If you’re feeling locked-in or trapped, it’s time to get a broader perspective, Sagittarius. This week is likely to greet you with some upsets that hurt your feels, and it might make you want to resist or fight. Take a deep breath, and make sure you’re not projecting your frustration with yourself onto others, my love. If you haven’t been advocating for yourself or managing your choices intentionally, you may have more than a bit of responsibility for where things are at. Honor your heart without blame this week.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
If you’ve overextended and you're dealing with exhaustion, this week it’s time to call some limits and reign yourself in. There are inevitably things that you have to do, but not many of them are essential when you’re feeling this frayed. Question your autopilot mode, revaluate your options, and make choices that you can live with, Cappy mon Capitan. Don’t sacrifice yourself for your goals unless it’s absolutely necessary this week.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Sometimes, the role of upsets and even depressive feels is to inspire you to take your emotions seriously. Just because you can repress them, doesn’t mean that you should, Aquarius. This week, your feelings are catching up to you, and instead of resisting them, the most efficient move for you is to nurture them. Make space for your heart, and honor whatever it is that you find there, even if you don’t know what to do about it, my love.
Feb. 19-March 20
Inactivity, when paired with intention, is action. You don’t always have to be moving and shaking in ways that are observable to others in order to be making progress, Pisces. Within all efforts is the need for repose, the need to pause and regroup, and the need to let things grow on their own. Don’t confuse your current need to slow down with laziness or inactivity, and don’t let anyone else rush you to further developments that just need to breathe a bit this week.
