The energies at play this week are not to be trifled with. These powerful forces will penetrate the world around you as well as in the world within, and now isn’t the time to check out, displace responsibility, or act out.

On the 19th Mercury and Mars in Cancer will sit opposite Pluto in Capricorn. You likely felt this building up over the course of the last few days, and it will unravel for a few days after. These transits will put in motion a course of action that will have long-term consequences. On the personal level, expect to be dealing with some compulsive feelings or thoughts. Because Mars and Pluto are involved, you're likely to catch yourself reliving past hurts, dredging up old grudges, and feeling deeply agitated. If you feel angry, depleted, irritable, self-destructive, or just plain mean, I suggest this: if it’s not productive, leave it alone. While you can’t suppress your anger or pretend it isn’t there, you can find creative outlets to obsess on. Distract your mind by giving it a bone to chew — something that isn't hurtful to yourself or others. But most importantly, remember that you are not clear-headed — and neither is anyone else. And keep in mind that feeding the trolls gives them all the energy they need to get stronger. Try to avoid fighting people in efforts to control, punish, or compel them, because it will feel awful and won't really get you where you want to go anyway. This is a time that will test your ability to be generous, patient, and to have perspective. Lean into it.

 On the 23rd diplomatic Venus will form an opposition to expansive Jupiter, and on the 24th Venus will square anxious Neptune. These two transits from Venus are going to bring up any array of Venusian issues: your relationship to how your body looks, your finances, or relationships in general. Strive to stay present and look for the growth opportunity in your current situation(s), instead of weaving stories or wild assumptions. You can weave magic into your life under this energy or just exhaust yourself with tall tales and what ifs. The key is to stay present and curious. Love is not conditional, but it’s not meant to be based in self-sacrifice either. This week may be too complicated to figure anything out for sure, but exploring your assumptions about the cost of beauty or love — or whether your values and your finances can realistically meet — is a transformative use of this energy.

ARIES

March 21-April 19

No matter how hard you try, this is a poorly starred time for pushing your will onto others, Aries. Your situations, and certainly your relationships, need some time to breathe. You don’t need to worry that giving space to upsets will make them worse – it won’t. What’s most likely to happen is that you’ll feel uncomfortable in your uncertainty, and on the other side of those unsure feelings, you'll find greater clarity and less drama. Go for the long game option this week.

TAURUS

April 20-May 20

When you don’t know what’s next, it’s easy to jump to conclusions. Your fears and worst case scenarios are likely to be on high alert this week, and it’s essential that you find ways of managing your feelings before you go and make your situation worse. It’s hard to pick your battles wisely when you’re consumed with emotion. To come to your truth, it may be useful for you to take some real alone time to sort through your mountain of feelings, Taurus.

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

There are only so many times that you can circle around an idea and still se it clearly, Twin Star. This week you may find yourself obsessing on things in a way that actually obscures innovation, instead of promotes it. Don’t forget the reason why you’re looking for answers. If your goal is to be happy, to be clear, or even to be fair-minded, then I suggest that you step away from your obsessions and take a breather, my love. Allow the space for things to come together.

CANCER

June 22-July 22

You don’t need to assign blame or to find justifications in order to validate your feelings, Moonchild. You are entitled to your inner experience, and in fact, it’s your job to care for yourself around it. This week it’s wise to be so good at caring for yourself that you avoid getting into it with people until you’re totally ready. Asserting boundaries is an act of kindness to yourself and others. Don’t let fear direct your actions and reactions, my love.

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

If you’re not paying proper attention to others, you run the risk of thinking that it’s a sunny, warm day out there, when in fact it’s a damn storm. Your enthusiasm and resiliency are a gift, but when you allow them to compel you to craft stories about someone else’s experience, you end up creating more drama — and what’s worse, it feels like it’s coming out of nowhere. Hold space for difference, and listen to other people with all of your senses, Leo.

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

True power is collaborative. If you're consumed by your will and trying to force it on people and situations, you’re not going to love what comes next. This week it’s all about finding balance wherever you’re at — even if that means that the middle point is still pretty far from what you ideally want. This is one of those times where good for now is a building block towards truly, happily good for you. Have patience, and let the little things go, Virgo.

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the truth is true, whether you want to look at it or not. Instead of recoiling from scary or unpleasant realities, confront them head on. You are likely to get new data, but not know exactly what it means or what to do with it yet. Sit in the discomfort and uncertainty of that this week without weaving stories and stoking the flames of fear. Let matters develop in their own time, no matter how awkward it feels, Libra.

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

If what makes you feel better in the short term comes at your long-term expense, you’re going to have a rough week, Scorpio. It’s important that you consider your big picture needs, which inevitably includes how the people around you are responding to your behavior. Get present, get real, and make some sustainable compromises. You’re don’t have to rush yourself in order to get there in time; take small steps that make sense this week.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

No matter how annoying they are, anger and frustration are normal parts of life. You may find yourself tempted to focus on the bright side or keep your vibes posi in the face of upsets this week, and I won’t tell you that it’s the wrong move. But I will say that if the only way to do that is by ignoring reality, you’ll end up in more trouble than you evade, Sagittarius. Spend some time bringing your wisdom and resiliency to the messiest parts of your life, my love.

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Sticking to the plan is fantastic, but when things change, it’s even better if you change with them. Strive to have your strategies be responsive and flexible because things are changing quickly and in potentially unexpected directions. You don’t have to get it right — you only have to be in it for the right reasons, Capricorn. Refine the integrity of your intentions this week, and then, even if you don't like what happens, you really can’t lose.

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

The role that fear plays in your assumptions may be bigger than you think. This week you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding on this topic and refine your tools in efforts to better cope. Or of course you can just indulge your most base instincts and defend yourself with rigid ideas about others and the world at large. It may not feel like you have a choice, but you do, Aquarius. Don’t take your most uncomfortable feelings at face value this week.

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

There’s a lot going on this week, and a good place to start is with you! Be mindful of your boundaries, Pisces. If you take on other people’s feelings or dramas, they will easily become your problems too. The best, most effective boundaries are firm and flexible, and that’s not easy, even if it’s simple. Start by finding your truth in this moment, and honor that. Now is an excellent time to practice being present without abandoning lessons from the past or your intentions for the future.
