Love Lanyadoo Astrology 03.20-26.2019
At 6:43pm PST on the 20th, it’s the Vernal Equinox as the Sun enters Aries and the Moon is Full at 0*09’ Libra. Not only are we experiencing a powerful Full Moon, but we’re also changing seasons. This is a time for inviting in new growth and for exploring the lavish abundance of nature. It also marks the end of Winter and introduces a time for shedding old skin.
This week will spark the potential for anxiety and overthinking, but it’s also a great time for deepening your relationship to you. Don’t abandon yourself when you feel upset. Try to be gentle when you feel tender and uncertain, but don’t confuse gentleness with duplicity.
Considerations for this Full Moon in Libra
• Ask yourself where you’ve been hiding from the truth or where you've been deceitful. Acknowledge where you’re lying to yourself or others by telling them that you care when you don’t or that you’re fine when you’re not.
• How you participate lays the foundation for the kinds of relationships you’re in. How you live is your cross to bear. This is an excellent time to allow the truth to set you free.
• Bring your attention to what you intend, and be honest about whether you’re seeking ease instead of happiness, or survival in the place of truly thriving. This is a new season and a time for planting the seeds you most want to see grow.
On the 21st Venus forms a sextile to excitable Jupiter and a square to ambitious Mars. These transits are excellent for hedonism: staying out too late, spending too much money, eating rich foods, and loving all of it. It’s an excellent time for socializing and meeting new people, going on dates, or just flirting. Nothing about these transits indicates longevity, but they are super fun in the here and now.
On the 24th Mercury will Retrograde into a conjunction to foggy Neptune. This transit is likely to kick up some anxiety, confusion, and the desire to disassociate. This is a powerful time to connect with your spirituality, to get creative for the sake of creativity (instead of productivity), and to strive to cultivate empathy and forgiveness in your life wherever they're needed. Negative obsessions, especially habitual ones, are like prayers for what you don’t want. Mind your thoughts, my sweet loves.

March 21-April 19
Self-doubt is part of being a person. It’s unpleasant and it’s uncomfortable, but it’s inevitable too. Don’t confuse humility – the kind of self-questioning that leads to growth and insight – with insecurity and being mean to yourself. It’s finally your season, Aries, and it’s time to deepen your relationship with your own dynamic self – the good, the bad, and the meh. Honor your journey by rising to the occasion, no matter how it challenges you this week.
April 20-May 20
Your emotions are important information and essential parts of your inner world, but this is not the time to allow your moods to run you, Taurus. This is the time to stay true to your values and ideals, even as your feels present a compelling distraction. You are growing in big and beautiful ways, but your fear of change may be your worst enemy. Whether you’re at the start or the end of something, now is the time for self-possession, my love.
May 21-June 21
You’re ready to really move on, Twin Star. Things aren’t perfect and neither are you, but luckily perfection is not a perquisite for progress. Do your best in the face of your most complicated feelings this week. If you insist on revisiting your decisions at every turn, the steps it takes to get there can provoke insecurity or confusion. Trust in yourself and in the choices you’ve worked so hard to make, even if the road to integrating it all is bumpy.
June 22-July 22
This week is an excellent time for you to start something new but not just anything will do. Strive to better your relationship to yourself by finally embodying your hard-won wisdom, taking a much-needed change of attitude, or kicking off a new self-care habit. Nurture your own process the same as you would care for a friend – with kindness and patience. In order to become the person you long to be, you have to be willing to step into some unfamiliar territory, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
You’re healing the old to make room for the new, and it’s … confusing. Resource your inner clarity by being willing to be the change you want to see in your life. You don’t need to convince others of your perspective; you only need to honor it. You don’t need to drag anyone onto your path with you; you only need to walk it. Trust that the dynamics in which you’re engaged are a part of your journey. Make choices that you can stand behind this week.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
It’s time to trust yourself, your life, your Higher Power – whatever gets you through. It’s just time for trusting, Virgo. You’re ready to take a leap of faith, and while that may be scary, your worries and fears are not to be misunderstood as intuition. Question the integrity of your motives and the reliability of your confidants, but once you’ve made a choice, don’t sit around wringing your hands over what you’ve done, my love.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The Full Moon in your sign on the 20th is likely to kick up some inner drama as you struggle to engage with the world in ways that honor the person that you are, Libra. Instead of getting others to share your view on things, try to sit with this simple truth: we all get to see the world differently, and those differences aren’t really about you. What someone else thinks is on them. Let go of your need to control or manage other people, and focus on your own sweet self this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Fear is the easiest thing to project out because it’s a feeling that’s hard to sit with. Once you engage in power struggles, you put yourself in a bad position, Scorpio. This week’s Full Moon will trigger everyone, and that means you'll have to make a concerted effort to notice the space between your own insecure reactions versus your reactions to the people and situations in front of you. As the saying goes: don't start nothing and there won't be nothing, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Do you get what you asked for, but when it comes, not like the result? This week you’re on fire, Sagittarius, and you’re likely to be able to attract whatever your heart most desires. The trouble is that your heart is not your head. No matter how hard you think about what you want, the underlying emotions win. It’s not enough to hate a thing; you have to believe you’re worth more. Clarify your truest feelings this week.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
There’s only one answer to your quandary, and that’s kindness. You don’t need to do it all, to be perfect, or to achieve all of your goals in this moment. All you need to do is to take the simple actions – one by one – that reflect the person that you want to be. Treating yourself and others in ways that you believe in sounds easy enough, but when you feel emotionally vulnerable or distracted, it gets difficult. Show up when it's crucial, and not just when it’s convenient, Cappy.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You’re learning to see things in a new way, and it’s weird, and uncomfortable, and beautiful. It's the very progress you’ve needed, even if you don’t enjoy the process of it. Don’t be so quick to get to the other side of this week’s troubles that you miss out on what’s happening in the here and now, Aquarius. Take time to embrace your journey, to take stock of your abundance, and to honor the person that you are becoming.
Feb. 19-March 20
You’re ready to confront the things that have been making you sad and to move forward. Allowing yourself to languish in uncertainty isn’t going to help you find the peace that you crave any more than it’s going to help you show up for others. Honor your boundaries like it’s your damn job, Pisces. It’s time to get decisive and to bear the consequences of whatever it is that you choose to do.
