Love Lanyadoo Astrology 09.18-24.2019
This week’s big news is the exact and final square from Jupiter in Sagittarius to Neptune in Pisces. This may find you frustrated with the present and your desire for something more compels you. Pay attention to what you feel impatient with and remember that right timing isn’t just about you. It’s about all the people you touch, and all those who come into your life. Impatience is a fixation on what you don’t have and where you’re not. Strive to be here now, my loves.

March 21-April 19
You can expect some complicated emotions this week, Aries. While you don’t have enough information to make a real call yet, your environment or circumstances are pushing you to do so. It might be easy to lose track of yourself in the face of other peoples’ needs, but it wouldn’t be wise. Attempt to carve out some time to sit with your feelings long enough to parse out your reactions from your intentions. Then you'll be able to respond to your life in ways that make it better.
April 20-May 20
You can fight and convince, and obsess and analyze, but at the end of the day, what you really need to do is accept what it is you’re being shown. You may be seeing something in yourself that you don’t know what to do about, or you may be struggling to adjust to something that you didn’t see coming in a relationship. Accept where things are at before you go trying to figure out what comes next. You may not be able to control your life, but you can respond to it with integrity, Taurus.
May 21-June 21
The pace you adopt is key to your success, Twin Star. Your ambitions are kicked into high gear, which is exciting, but if you act out of impulse alone, you’ll set yourself up for a fall. Take the time to get grounded before you get going. That may look like scheduling things in a calendar, considering your other commitments, or just making sure that you'll want what you want when this mood passes. Be authentic with yourself so that you can be trustworthy to others, my love.
June 22-July 22
Embrace change without releasing your commitment to security this week, Moonchild. When you allow yourself to get distracted by what you don’t have, you take energy away from creating what you want. This week the stars want you to let go — not of your ambitions or your hopes, but of your attachment to what it needs to look like or when it needs to appear. Cultivate patience alongside hopefulness, and innovate in tandem with your need to keep things solid in your life.
July 23-Aug. 22
The frustration that you feel when things don’t go your way is totally understandable. That said, it’s invaluable to find ways of coping that don’t further destabilize your life. Be willing to yield, to pause, or even to concede, Leo. This isn’t the time to cut off your nose to spite your face, or to enact any other prideful shenanigans. This week it’s time to show up with your whole human self, messy contradictions, mixed feelings, and all.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
What you do and why you do it are more important than what comes as a result this week. While you’re not likely to see great outcome for your efforts immediately, this is a powerful time for laying foundations, Virgo. You’re likely to be confronted with choices that don’t feel like good choices at all; strive to act in integrity instead of out of fear. You don’t need proof and reassurance — as nice as that would be. What you need is to honor your truth, regardless of the reward.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Finding a balance between assertion and diplomacy is a constant struggle, but one well worth orienting yourself around. You may need to set some boundaries, or conversely, take ownership of ways that you crossed someone else’s limits. Either way, you're being challenged to show up honestly and generously with others, while not abandoning yourself. This week is the perfect time to take a stand for who you mean to be and to consider whether your actions reflect that.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Anxiety, as unpleasant as it is, doesn’t give you carte blanche to act out or drop the ball. Take responsibility for what you can and can’t do this week, or you’ll find that you unintentionally create a whole host of new, kind of demoralizing problems. You’re allowed to have limits, but you’re still figuring out how to effectively communicate them. Successful collaboration requires compromise and transparency.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
This week will kick up some deep conflicts within you, and as unpleasant as it may be, it’s also a chance to step up and make new choices. Shonda Rhimes said it best: “A crazy thing happened — the very act of doing the thing that scared me undid the fear. It’s amazing the power of one word. ‘Yes’ changed my life. ‘Yes’ changed me.” Allow yourself to look your fears straight in the face, and then say yes to your hopes, yes to you, Sagittarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
What you don’t yet have or yet understand can trip you up, or it can inspire you — it’s kind of up to you. When you feel anxious or plagued by the unknown, I encourage you to consider your options. How you hold your concerns is going to frame your perspective on them this week, so strive to be intentional when it would be easiest to recoil from your feelings. Make choices that are in alignment with person you want to be — not reflective of your fears, sweet Cappy.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
When you’ve taken on too much, even of things that you totally believe in, you end up exhausting yourself, and that can make things weird. You run the risk of acting in unintentional ways this week, as you deal with burnout or anxiety. It’s time to put some things on the backburner, Aquarius, even if it’s only for a brief period of time. Experiment with letting go of what’s not truly important, and hold those choices as a gift that you're giving yourself.
Feb. 19-March 20
You can’t always expect others to see things the way you do, or even to care about the things that you think are most important. Instead of letting differences in perspective hurt your feelings, try to be interested in them this week. You may find that you’ve been giving too much power to other people’s opinions, or you may find wisdom in looking at things in a new way. In either case, this is the time for considering potential and exploring, Pisces.
