Love Lanyadoo Astrology 04.10-16.2019

⬇︎⬆︎

This week is going to feel pretty busy! The transits we’re expecting will confront us with the need for strategy when we’d really rather distract ourselves. When things get real, you always have a choice – look away, phone it in, or show up. Strive to make the best choices you can from where you’re at.

On the 10th the Sun will form a square to Saturn; this is a transit that's likely to make you feel stuck or like there isn’t enough good to go around. You’re likely to feel like the glass is half empty, or that you’re buried under a pile of obligations. Do what you can to find balance between self-care and following through with your responsibilities. Because Mercury is also forming a sextile to transformational Pluto on this date, there is potential for you to be able to get to the bottom of a problem or see things as they truly are. To best leverage these transits, prioritize constructive solutions and practical approaches.

On the 11th Mercury forms a square to Jupiter, and this can find you running at the mouth, jumping to conclusions, or being a bit sloppy with details. This marks an excellent time for big-picture visioning and for reconnecting with the truth of a situation.

By the 13th the Sun will form a square to Pluto, kicking up some compulsive and defensive energy. Expect intense feelings and interactions with others around this date, and avoid jumping to conclusions or engaging in petty fights. As this ends, the final transit of the week begins with a Venus square to Jupiter, exact on the 15th. This can bring a bit of levity to your life, as it will be a lovely time to connect with others or just relax. You may find yourself indulging in some much needed hedonism at this time – have fun but don’t overdo it.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

It’s time to take a leap of faith, Aries, and that begs the question: what do you believe in? If your actions require convictions that you don’t have, it’s time to either change your course or change your attitudes. Slow down, and ask yourself three important questions this week: Why am I doing what I'm doing? Can I stand behind my choices, regardless of the outcome? And finally, am I making compromises that compromise me?

TAURUS

April 20-May 20

It’s hard to know the right balance. It’s wise to listen to others and take counsel from trusted sources, but sometimes you have to go your own way, too. Start to really prioritize your own wisdom, Taurus. Pay attention to the patterns running through your life, and let your past be your best teacher. If you take in too much advice or direction, you’re likely to feel confused and exhausted this week. Slow down, tune in, and trust your inner voice, my love.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

As you grow, it’s inevitable that you outgrow people and situations, but along with that comes outgrowing attitudes and beliefs too. Allow space to integrate the major shifts that have occurred within you in recent months, Twin Star. You’ve changed, and while it’s not totally clear where it will all take you, it is clear that it’s somewhere new. Break old habits and routines as you make decisions with intention and more than a bit of bravery.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

It’s possible to truly feel yourself, to take what's yours, to bask in the light of your accomplishments, and to also not be an ego monster. You need a healthy sense of self, not only to thrive but also in order to be able to own the wonderful things about your life and yourself. Being amazing doesn’t mean that you’re better than anyone or that you deserve more than others. Place your value in as high esteem as you’d do for a loved one, Moonchild.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Get excited, Leo! You have put yourself in an excellent position, and you've earned the right to brag a little. You don't need validation from others in order to celebrate yourself. You are wonderful whether or not anyone is looking or whether or not your people say anything about it. Stop looking outside of yourself for love, dear one. Be your own best friend, and treat yourself with the love and care that you deserve this week.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Things are not likely to be quite as they appear. Events this week will confront you with things that seem lovely on the surface but may in fact be more demanding of you than you’re willing to give. Get under the surface of things to investigate the truth so that you can make necessary adjustments. You may need to change your expectations, your commitments, or your approach. Make changes now, while it's still relatively easy to do so, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Be suspicious of the role that fear plays in your life, Libra. At times, it can be hard to determine what is safe and practical versus what is simply motivated by dread, but learning to tell the difference is an invaluable life skill. When the glass feels half empty, that's when you need perspective – not answers. Take the time this week to get centered before you get going. In other words, clarify your question in order to find the answers you actually need, my love.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

While there are intense energies in the air (as you can expect there to be this week), you'll need to find your center or a place of inner stillness. You are changing, but your habits won’t organically update without a serious reboot. Be conscious of how your actions and intentions are and aren’t matching up. You don’t need to feel bad about it; just use that awareness to help you level up your life. You’ve got this, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

What you need this week is time. You’ve got yourself all wound up in knots as you consider every angle and potential outcome of a thing, and it has scattered your thinking and your precious energy. It’s time to get centered on your goals and hopes, or you’ll find yourself chasing the shiniest thing – not the most valuable one. Prioritize what gives your life meaning, Sagittarius.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you act before you’re ready, you’re likely to find yourself in a shame or blame spiral that creates more problems than it fixes. Strive to get centered before you get moving this week, Capricorn. There’s too much going on for you, and if you react to each thing individually (while ignoring the big picture), you’ll not like what you get. Resist the urge to do everything all at once, and instead make sure that you do it in the best way you can, one step at a time.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There’s always a path that you don’t see. When you try to do everything on your own, you limit your perspective unnecessarily. This is a powerful time for you to collaborate with others, Aquarius. Find creative possibilities to help you get where you want to go next. If you're willing to take your time, it’s not a problem that you are experimenting – it’s an opportunity! Change your approach, and you'll expand what’s possible, my love.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Your struggles have you feeling depleted, but it's these very struggles that hold the answers you’ve been looking for. To find a sense of peace or inner balance, you need to be flexible in the face of upsets. You are capable of responding to whatever your life has thrown at you, but you’re stuck at the stage of acceptance. If you can just accept your current conditions, you'll more gracefully get started with rising to the challenge, Pisces.
