Love Lanyadoo Astrology 01.09-15.2019
On the 11th the Sun will be conjunct to Pluto, and on the 13th Mercury will form a conjunction to Saturn – all in heavy-handed Capricorn. This week is going to be intense, and it will confront you with powerful feelings that can veer towards the defensive or the paranoid if you’re not careful. Expect compulsive thoughts and emotions to dominate the world around you, and strive to do your part to keep your side of the street clean. When everyone is struggling, it’s reflexive to act from a place of scarcity, but that’s precisely the wrong attitude. Strive to be honest with yourself about your motives, your actions, and your goals. This is a powerful time for consequences, but because of Pluto’s involvement, it’s unlikely to feel straightforward or easy. Seek the truth instead of the answer, my loves. When you’re attached to getting a particular outcome, it’s hard to see your whole situation clearly; let go of trying to control things, and just strive to confront them as they are.
Pick your battles wisely, and mind where you allow your attention and energy to go. It’s impossible to keep an accounting of everyone’s integrity; all you can manage is your own. These transits (felt from the 10th-14th) will require that you put into practice your most effective self-care techniques, and they'll require you to have patience. It’s easy to sh&t on things, especially when you’re feeling bad, but consider this: if you spend more time and energy tearing other people’s efforts down than you spend in lifting them up, you’re the one with a problem.
On the 13th Jupiter will form an exact square to Neptune. Be on the lookout for fanaticism, dogma, and overindulgence in escapist behaviors. This transit can bring about a test of faith in some way, but again, you are being challenged to open up to new information and be willing to change if that’s what's most humane to do. When you cling blindly to your ideals, you’re missing out on a powerful opportunity for growth. Be open, and allow compassion, empathy, and the knowledge that we are all connected guide you. This is a time when you may feel confused, exhausted by the world, or driven to abandon everything for an ideal. Experience your feelings without attachment, and make sense of them later. The best thing that you can do at this time is to learn about yourself and the world around you. The truth is true whether you want to deal with it or not; show up with your whole heart whenever you can, Kittens.
March 21-April 19
You don’t need to "get to the bottom of it" or "fix it," nor do you need to get anyone "on board." All you have to do is get grounded and be here now. If uncomfortable feelings motivate you to correct a problem that you don’t understand, you'll likely make things worse. Don’t let your ego write checks that you can’t actually cash, Aries. It’s time to have a seat, or you’ll end up creating drama that only serves as a distraction to what you really need. Tend to your feels, my love.
April 20-May 20
You don’t need to take on others’ emotions or issues in order to show them your loyalty. Show up with kindness but without taking on the stress of your environment, Taurus. If you're able to relate to others without compromising your own energy, you'll have more to offer and you'll be happier too . True kindness means having healthy enough boundaries to know the difference between what you can take on and what simply isn’t yours to hold.
May 21-June 21
Your resistance to what's happening is making things 300% worse than it really is. If you stopped trying to figure out who’s fault it is, how you got here, and how messed up it is, you could do what you actually need to do: lean into it. For the best possible outcome, accept your situation so that you can work with it. You have choices, but when you’re having a pity party, it’s hard to see them. You’ve got this, Twin Star. Just take it one step at a time.
June 22-July 22
Seeking balance is not about trying to feel good all the time; emotional balance happens when you allow yourself to feel whatever you’re feeling without attachment or repression. This week is likely to kick up all kinds of feels, and while that isn’t easy, it doesn’t have to be bad either. Take responsibility by moderating what you do in reaction to your feelings. You will propel your relationships forward one way or another this week. Strive to do it with grace, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
You don’t need to know what’s going to come next in order to be prepared for it; you only have to know who you are and what you value. This week will test your relationship to opportunity, Leo, so let me remind you of this: comparison is the thief of joy. You only have to be the best current version of yourself. You only need to do your best, and nobody’s success or failure has anything to do with your own. This week, choose life, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Worry is in the air, but you don’t need to take it on, Virgo. While you may not be getting exactly what you want, you’re not in bad shape either. If you’re willing to see the potential in your situation, your next steps will be clarified this week. Something needs to change, but if it’s gonna stick, it likely needs start with you . This is a good time to depart with convention and take some real risks in spite of your fears, my love.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You don’t need to get it perfect, but you do need to try. Even if you don’t know how you’re going to get there, you can trust that you’re on your way. This week will confront you with some logistical problems to consider, but it’s important that you don’t let it get you down in a way that derails you. Pace yourself through your efforts; pair common sense action with follow-through. Add a dash of hope to the mix, and you can’t go wrong, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Avoid knee-jerk reactions and other unintentional messiness this week. The way you do the things you do is just as important as the things themselves – that’s why you can do everything “right” and sometimes still feel wrong. This week you can do what’s expected of you, or you can pause long enough to consider what’s true for you, Scorpio. While you are not free from consequences, you are free to make choices that are right for you. Determine your next moves carefully.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
It’s time to be the change that you want to see in your life, Sagittarius. You’ve got to take solid steps towards your goals because even if they feel terribly intangible right now, you’ve gotta start somewhere. This week you’ll have the chance to get caught up in some old thought patterns that take you in circles, or you can go a different direction. Instead of looking at the problem, seek the solution. Instead of glossing over the steps, really dig into them.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
As you change your needs, your limits invariably change too. You don’t need to carve your intentions in stone this week, but it’s time to make a choice. Dare to be optimistic in the face of your fears and to find your voice when you would typically switch on autopilot. Find the flow in what you’re doing, no matter how small the task, so that you can act in ways that reflect your presence. Don’t wait for your life to happen to you; live it now, Capricorn.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You don’t have to go it alone, my love! Make an effort to talk your feelings out this week. Uncertainty is so uncomfortable, but it isn’t bad. It's hard to be unsure of where you’re going, how you’ll get there, or when, but not knowing isn’t code for "something negative is around the bend." You don’t need to figure out anything major this week, Aquarius. All you have to do is experiment with ways experiencing your emotions that actually work for you.
Feb. 19-March 20
There is no one way to have healthy boundaries because healthy boundaries are situational and flexible (yet firm). You do a disservice to yourself and the people you’re close to when you don’t express your needs in clear and honest ways. Your only job is to keep your side of the road clean. The time has come for you to show up; even if it’s scary or things don’t go well, you can know that you tried. Don’t hold yourself back this week, Pisces.
