March 21-April 19
Breathe, Aries. It’s not a weakness to need some space to gather yourself, especially this week. Slow down so you can actually sit with your thoughts and use all of your energies to regroup. You have some important decisions to make on the horizon, and it will help you to come at them with a calm and patient approach. Treating the meaningful things in your life with a bit of gravitas will serve you in the long run, but it will require more mindfulness from you this week.
April 20-May 20
When you bother to assert boundaries, it’s on you to maintain them. This week may find you in a bind as you low-key want to go back on your word or disregard something that you emphatically asserted. There’s no shame in changing your mind, but it’s your job to honor your own truth. Consider whether you need to ask for something new, change your attitude, or even come clean about something you’ve done. It’s more important to maintain integrity than to save face, Taurus.
May 21-June 21
The reason why over-thinking things is so widely regarded as a fast track to creating problems is because after a certain point, you just can’t see things clearly. It's unrealistic to figure everything out at once, and that’s OK, Twin Star. How you approach your process is just as important as the answers you're seeking. The good news is that you’re going to get there. Do your best not to make it harder on yourself than it needs to be this week.
June 22-July 22
The more you have, the more you have to lose. In the words of Dan Brown, people will “go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.” Your desire to be safe and your desire to have a life that you feel passionate about may be in conflict with each other this week. Don’t let what you're afraid of stop you from exploring your potential. Even as life is chaotic and full of unknowns, have faith in yourself, Moonchild.

July 23-Aug. 22
This week may find you at the end of your rope, but don’t fear, Leo. This is just an opportunity to find new (hopefully better) ways of caring for your heart in whatever situation you're in. Act with the confidence that comes from believing that things will turn out alright, and that if they don't, you’ll handle it. You don’t need to have faith in yourself, and if you can’t, this is a great week to fake it ‘til you make it, my love.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
The New Moon in your sign on the 30th is a gift, Virgo. All of this Virgonian energy may trigger your analytic tendencies in an upsetting way, or it can help you to get more grounded in the here and now. What you’re experiencing now does not exist in isolation; it is part of a pattern of events, and you’ve been here for all of it. Find the will you need to take active strides towards what you want, and let go of the need to control what that looks like.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Balance doesn’t always look symmetrical; sometimes you need things to be quite imbalanced in the short-term in order for them to even out in the long-term. Pay attention to the strain that your stress level has placed on your relationships, Libra. It’s time for you to use your ego as a tool for lifting yourself up — not in contrast to others, but of your own accord. Consider the big picture of your needs instead of letting the little things get in your way this week.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There are some very real limitations that you have to work within, but with the right attitude, it’s totally doable. That said, if your approach to life’s stressors isn’t moderate and at least somewhat patient, you'll find yourself feeling really overwhelmed this week. Instead of trying to dismantle what isn’t working, try to align yourself with a solid plan, Scorpio. You’re at risk of reacting out of your most defensive impulses, and these aren't your clearest ones, my love.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Opportunities are likely to come your way this week, but remember, all that glitters is not gold, Sagittarius. When things don’t turn out how you planned, it's not a punishment or even a failure — it’s just a curve ball. If your situation doesn't feel stable, what can you do to take care of yourself? Ask questions, read the fine print, and be willing to negotiate. Be an active part of the process — with all its starts and stops.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
When your ego jumps to defend itself, it can get you in more trouble than you’re prepared to handle. You run the risk of acting out of fear and overdoing it. Strive to act from a place of conviction instead of insecurity, Capricorn. This may mean that you need to get grounded before you get going, but trust me, it’s totally worth it. Know what you’re really getting into before you strike out this week.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your biggest homework this week is to manage your mind, Aquarius. Instead of obsessing or indulging your compulsions, breathe into your feelings. Allow yourself to be anxious without trying to figure out why (and basically making matters worse). Now isn’t the time for answers or direction, it’s the time for sitting with your situation, and just hanging out there. Surrender your need to know, and see what you’re left with this week.
Feb. 19-March 20
You’re fighting something, but is it at your own expense? What would happen if you stopped struggling, stopped fighting, stopped trying to change how other people feel or think, and just gave yourself permission to be where you’re at? You know what you need, but that doesn’t mean you like it. Own your preferences, and let others own theirs. Take responsibility for your path without making compromises that no one asked you to make, dear Pisces.
