March 21-April 19
What if you fail? What if you’re the best at a task? What if you try and you can’t? What does any of that mean about you, and how do you cope with it? This week is a powerful time to look at your relationship to success, to winning, and to proving yourself — and to make sure that it’s not at your own expense. You don’t have to substantiate your value; you just need to believe in it. Work on your self-esteem this week so that your ego doesn’t go on the defense, Aries.
April 20-May 20
It’s wise to adopt a slow and steady pace as you approach meaningful change, Taurus. instead of trying to be in control, strive to be clear. As scary as it can be, your vulnerability is a sign that you’re engaging in things that deeply matter to you, and that’s a really beautiful thing. Learning how to honor your feelings without indulging your fears is an art, and it takes practice and courage. In order to hold on, it’s time to let go, my dear love.
May 21-June 21
You're seeing things clearly, but in your rush to weave a cohesive story out of the details in front of you, you run the risk of creating a false narrative, Twin Star. As upsetting as it is, sit in the discomfort of not knowing, this week. Allow yourself to be clear about some of the why, but not the how, to know where you want to be, but to be ambiguous about what it takes to get there. It may feel like slowing down to let things percolate, but it’s actually a shortcut, I promise.
June 22-July 22
When you feel overwhelmed, it’s important that you take quality time to replenish. This doesn’t mean you should just shut down and check out; actually check in with yourself instead. This week it’s important that you practice acts of restorative kindness. Prioritize things that feed your soul above those that just make you feel better for a minute. Some pains are truly healing, and some pleasures add nothing to the quality of your life. Use discretion, Moonchild.
July 23-Aug. 22
When you're unsure of yourself or your circumstances, that's when you're most likely to slip into self-destructive thinking. This week, be on the lookout for negative obsessions or just running the same circles over an idea. There's a meaningful difference between giving a thing space versus checking out and not dealing though. Check your motives and your approach, but don’t rush, Leo. You’ll figure things out in your own time, so try not to be a bully in the process.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You need to be able to do it for yourself if you’re going to do it at all, Virgo. This week, it’s time to get your motives lined up, especially in your messier situations. The truth is that even if you’re compromising for something or someone, you have choice. You may feel mixed about why you’re doing what you’re doing, but as long as you're clear about why your choice is the best one available to you, you can more easily bear whatever frustrations it brings along with it.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
As you grow, you must let go of many things that you didn’t even realize you were holding on to. This week is likely to confront you with ways that you have not yet released the past. As this happens, you can respond with defensiveness or with humility; and spoiler alert: the later will win you allies, and the former will send you on a path you really don’t want to take. No matter how hard you’re trying or how upset you are, this isn’t the time to be a jerk, sweet Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Even if you’re struggling with what to trust, now is the time to make some decisions, Scorpio. This is one of those times in life when doing nothing is an action. How you relate to others is not as much about them as it is about you. Instead of looking for the perfect approach to take, determine what you need to do in order to be right with yourself. Your relationships are changing and while you can’t control fate, other people, or the weather, you can control how you choose to respond to them.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
What you give your energy to is the thing that will grow. This week is an excellent time to think about the big picture of what you want. When you know where you’re going, it’s so much easier to stay on the path. Realign yourself with your raison d’etre, Sagittarius, and recommit your efforts to where you want to be. You may have to make concessions in the here and now, and that’s alright as long as you don’t compromise your ability to mobilize your vision.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You won’t lose your edge if you relax, Cappy. You aren’t safer, smarter, or more in tune for working yourself to the bone. The hardest way isn’t necessarily the best way, and if you can’t see that, you need a time out. Pick a lane, and commit to it this week. Set small, achievable goals so that you can build up your confidence and your equilibrium. What a shame it would be to be the only person who doesn’t get to enjoy your oddball company, my love.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Fear is a tricky bugger; it tells you to stay stuck or to make yourself smaller just in case it’s worse on the other side of change. You can’t control where you go or what happens when you get there, but you can manage your approach along the way. Your challenge, should you accept it, is to stay present, this week. Take a one-step-atta-time approach to your biggest anxieties and most distracting enjoyments. Your tomorrow is built today, Aquarius; don’t rush this moment.
Feb. 19-March 20
You're learning to take up space in a way that is more authentic, and it’s freaking wonderful, Pisces. The trouble is that as you take up more space, inevitably you’re going to feel uncertain of the boundaries — and whether or not you’ve crossed an important one — from time to time. Strive to know the difference between the discomfort of change within your relationships and actually having misstepped. When you can’t please all the people, you can at least strive to please yourself.
