March 21-April 19
As you find new ways of identifying and asserting your boundaries, you can also find more comfort in your own skin. This week will catch you getting clearer about what does and does not work for you (yay!), but expressing it in a direct yet diplomatic way will take a bit of work. You don’t need to be right or wrong, and when you’re looking to prove yourself, you’ve lost your way. Keep it simple and just be honest, and strive to treat others with kindness and respect, Aries.
April 20-May 20
If you rush to get an answer, you're likely to miss important information along the way. While yours isn’t a sign that's known for hurrying, you can get so set in your ways that you don’t realize you’ve been keeping your head down. When things get stressful this week, take a deep breath, and do absolutely nothing. Get present so that you can get clarity about how you got here. Then take note of what you’re getting out of this pattern that’s playing itself out in your life.
May 21-June 21
In the words of Paracelsus, “Poison is in everything, and no thing is without poison. The dosage makes it either a poison or a remedy.” You know what you're scared of, and as paradoxical as it sounds, if you can stay with those feelings, you’ll contain them. Your relationship to anxiety is at a bit of a turning point, and believe it or not, you’re in the driver's seat. To help you stay in a healthy place this week, prioritize doing the things that work.
June 22-July 22
You may have to give up something that you'd really rather not, so here’s a question for you to ponder: if your identity isn’t a flexible thing, how can you grow? You may have to shift things that you’re highly identified with, but that doesn’t need to be a bad thing. Explore the boundaries between growing pains and uncomfortable change. It’s time to get more free, but the way to do it may require being present with the ways you’re stuck, my sweet Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
No matter how hot that fire in your belly burns, slow and steady will win this race, Leo. If you're trying to create some security in your life, this is a good time to do it, but be careful what you ask for. When you seek to make unhealthy dynamics (or even a rut) into something stable, it can’t make you happy. Be wise enough to review your goals before you take strides to achieve them this week. Choose your hopes over your fears, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
The middle ground sounds good on paper, but it isn’t always good enough. Whether you’ve bent too far or been too rigid, this week you may find yourself needing to make some sweeping changes that aren’t altogether pleasant. Communication is important, but without boundaries, it won’t take you as far as you need to go. Learn from the mistakes of your past so that you don’t repeat them this week. You’re almost there, Virgo.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
If you try and fail, is it really a failure or just a life lesson? Look at your relationship to fear and scarcity this week. Notice what narratives you're running and how your desire to avoid disappointments inhibits your willingness to try. Failure is scary, but it’s a risk that we all must take on the path to creating success. Believe in yourself, Libra. Look for the potential in even the biggest bummers that your life delivers. Find purpose in all of it this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
If you’re mean to yourself, how does that help matters at all, Scorpio? If you treat life in general, or more specifically your relationships, as something you win or lose, you’re pretty much setting yourself up for a fall. It’s time for you to look at your self-talk and make some necessary adjustments. There are parts of your foundations that aren’t serving you. Working outward from your innermost self, strive transform what you’ve outgrown, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
When you're doing too much, it’s not enough to keep adding to your plate, pause, and then go back to overdoing it. You need space to emotionally catch up with yourself, Sagittarius, which is often a slower, clumsier process. If you don’t tend to your feelings this week, you’re likely to find yourself in a mess of emotions that don’t quite make sense for your situation — and also clog up your flow. It’s time to say no to some things and to really sit with yourself, my love.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Doing the work isn’t only about completing tasks; it’s also an inside job, Capricorn. Every time your anxiety gets kicked up, strive to greet it with patience and kindness this week. You can’t change the channel on your feelings — they're yours to feel. Accept your vulnerabilities so that you can get around to the real work — embracing them. Change your heart, and your mind will follow. In order to achieve true success, you need to bring all of you along for the ride.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
The things you care about inevitably require at least a little TLC, Aquarius. This week it’s on you to devote the care and attention that your life and commitments deserve, while also paying your respects to what’s hard or sad. You need to rely on your instincts, but it’s really difficult to do that when you’re not checked in and actually listening to yourself. Spend time giving love to what you love and pursuing actions that reflect your actual priorities.
Feb. 19-March 20
Internal investigation is an essential part of navigating the terrain you must travel, Pisces. Without clarity of intent, it’s hard to know which compromise to make, which risk is worthy of putting yourself on the line, and what to prioritize. If your wires are feeling all crossed this week, it’s time to hit the pause button and gather yourself. Don’t try to figure out what to do — that’s too confusing. Ask yourself what you care most about. Ask yourself what is most pressing in the here and now.
