March 21-April 19
It’s time to face facts, Aries. Whether or not you like what you’re seeing, you are indeed seeing it. This week you may find yourself confronted with something you aren’t quite ready to cope with and that you’d rather avoid. You don’t have to do anything yet, but pretending that everything is okay isn’t the answer either. Give yourself permission to file difficulties away until you're ready to deal. You can come back to it when you know you won't assign blame to others or go into Pollyanna mode about it.
April 20-May 20
What you want is commendable, but the way you’re going about it will turn you in circles. Catching your breath and tending to your basic needs is an essential part of any growth process. You are absolutely expanding beyond where you’ve been, and it’s exciting and scary and new. Allow some time for integration, Taurus. Don’t sweat the small stuff; anything you miss out on as a result of self-care isn’t worth investing in this week.
May 21-June 21
Not having what you want is not evidence that you won’t get it. This week, it’s wise to review your goals, especially the ones that aren’t progressing in the way you want. If you stop impulsively reacting, you can start properly unpacking the information that’s in front of you, Twin Star. If you allow your fears to dominate, you will find yourself caught up in circular thinking that only makes you feel worse. Start from wherever you’re at, and go from there, my love.
June 22-July 22
You are growing in leaps and bounds, even if you feel like you’re stuck this week. How you handle yourself under blue skies and happy times is great, but when things get stressful and upsetting, you can see the true measure of your progress. Act in ways that reflect how and who you want to be – not your situation – Moonchild. It’s perfectly okay to be sad, but when you act defensively, you get yourself into trouble. Just take it one step atta time this week.
July 23-Aug. 22
The line between empathy and taking on other peoples’ feels can be a thin one, but this week you’re meant to find it, Leo. While you don’t need to agree with your friends’ perspectives and you shouldn’t adopt their problems or feelings as your own, being able to be present and supportive for them is a great kindness. Strive to give as much support as you want to receive, but remember: don't burn yourself out in the process of showing up for the people you love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
As you move through old emotional habits and patterns, you’re inevitably going to hit some internal walls that you constructed in the past for a reason. Don’t bully yourself into change because that will only make those survivalist walls stronger. Find nurturing and supportive ways of motivating yourself to grow, Virgo. You don’t need to rush or to be perfect. Cultivating faith in yourself and your life is a winding path; just stay on it.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The truth is true whether you wanna deal with it or not, Libra. This week is an excellent one to take risks, to put yourself out there, and to embody your truth, even when it’s inconvenient. You are ready to embrace healthier boundaries, but it will cost you. The goal is to care more about honesty than keeping the peace, and to be willing to bear the consequences of it. You’re almost there, and while it’s not likely to be totally easy, it is time to try.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You don’t have anything to prove, Scorpio. Your anxieties may have you running in circles this week, but you don’t need to chase them anywhere. It’s time to get grounded before you get moving; don’t advance from a place of panic or fear without first at least trying to shift your mood. That means addressing your feels before you act in ways that further stir the pot (which could end up giving you something to be really stressed out about).
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The power of joyous non-attachment allows you to act out of love, without needing the outcome to be a certain thing or to come at a specific time. This week affords you the energy to have vision for how you want your life to feel and clarity for your big picture goals. You can also strive to act out of that, without getting wrapped up in the pursuit of details of the potential outcome. It’s time for you to let go and do your best in the here and now, Sagittarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
It’s time for change, Cappy. You’ve been dragging along old ways of being, trying to change without actually letting go and taking risks. Instead of overthinking things or seeking the “perfect” answer, just follow through with what you’ve already figured out. This is a bit of a murky moment, but you don’t need to feel easy in order to have found the path forward. Act in spite of your fears. Become the agent of change that you need to see in your life.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You don’t need to know where you’re going in order to be in the right place. Contradicting forces can exist at the same time and not cancel each other out. You can be stuck in your head and also deeply in your feels, or both shut down and obsessing all at once. Honor your emotions without getting so preoccupied by them that you lose perspective. Be patient with your feelings and your attitudes as your relationships go through a state of flux this week.
Feb. 19-March 20
Your value and your values are not meant to be reflective of the people you’re around or the situation that you find yourself in – they are meant to be an expression of your truth. Be willing to be in disagreement with others when it means that you're honoring yourself, Pisces. You don’t need to seek the answer as much as you need to decide that you’re going to respect your own perspective. Being somebody’s “bad guy” is an inevitable part of having boundaries.
