The Hoodwitch:Weekly Astrology 1-4/1-10

Written By Love Lanyadoo Astrology

Cosmic Witch Tips:

Mercury quits it’s Retrograde motion on the 8th(yay!). We won’t have to worry about random computer problems and miscommunications anymore, but it’s wise to double check your work from the past several weeks. This week is gonna test your flexibility and honor; Uranus forms a square to the Sun, and Pluto conjoins it. What that all means in English is that everyone is likely to be feeling defensive. Watch your impulses because no matter what it feels like in the moment, you can chill for a minute and get perspective before you go “fixing” things. This week will bring up themes of power and powerlessness, and it’s when you feel threatened that it’s easiest to justify bad behavior. Don’t be a dick, lover. Strength without compassion and humility may help you get ahead, but true leadership requires a full heart. Rise up.



March 21-April 19

This week you may want to rip the face off of someone in order to see the real person inside, but watch out, Aries! All face-ripping and other forms of aggression will be met with resistance at best. At worst, you’ll put into motion the kind of drama that has long-term reverberations. Don’t let paranoia and other heartfelt obsessions get the better of you, my love. Wait 72 hours before acting on powerful feels, and for extra points don’t do a thing until Mercury goes direct on the 8th.




April 20-May 20

Expect someone to come through your life this week who’ll dislodge something from your subconscious and force you to deal with it. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it may be upsetting. Be honest about what you’re trying to protect, Taurus. Maintaining the status quo isn’t gonna get you very far; it’s a New Year and time to be open to new perspectives and ways. No matter how culpable the other person seems, your reactions are all yours. Do what’s best, not what’s most comfortable.




May 21-June 21

Your ruling planet goes direct on the 8th – Hazzah!  Get ready for a boost of clarity to help you make good on the things you’ve been getting clear about, and take pains not to be a lazy baby on the 10th. The second half of this week will give you an extra push towards your goals. Set aside time for intentional bursts of creativity, Twin Star. What you lack in discipline, you make up for in genius. Work with what you’ve got to get what you want.



June 22-July 22

When people act out, do you try to fix them, or do you take their behavior personally? If you do either, you’re likely to go deep into some relationship drama this week, my love. The cultivation of healthy boundaries isn’t something you do in your Dear Diary or in chill times; it’s when you catch yourself being reactive that you most need them. How you respond to problems is a reflection of your emotional maturity. Act in ways that reflect your integrity and not your situation this week.




July 23-Aug. 22

Your body is a temple, and if you know anything about temples, they’re supposed to be treated with reverence. This week your body is trying to communicate something to you, and it’s your job to listen closely. Your meat suit is not separate from you; it’s not just a car to shuttle your mind around. It’s your closest ally and longest companion on the earth. Start 2017 off by listening to what it has to tell you and heeding it’s wise counsel.




Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Sex is a lot of things; it’s a form of self-expression, acts preformed out of desire, and a way to get close to another person. For some, it’s just an adult handshake while for others it’s only for procreation. What you believe about sex and what you need to feel happy and whole in your sexuality should ideally line up. This week you’re meant to embrace your sexuality, whatever that means for you. Shake off shame, and honor your desires and needs, Virgo.




Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Matters of the heart are tugging at you, and it’s time to go deep with them, Libra. Whether you are meant to confront a dynamic that’s integral to your closest relationships or you need to take stock of ways you’ve been acting that aren’t in line with how you want to be, this week is all about confrontation. Don’t blindly defend yourself or the way things are, no matter how scared you are of transformation. This year is going to bring with it all kinds of changes; be a part of it.




Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Watch your mouth because you can’t take back what you say. While you’re at it, watch that eye roll too because while nobody knows your pain like you do, they can read your less-than-subtle Scorpio side-eye. Know yourself well enough to know the difference between a traumatic event and a triggering one. They’re equally problematic but require different remedies. Your first reaction may not be your most trustworthy one, so channel chill into your dealings with others this week.




Nov. 22-Dec. 21

No matter what the details of your situation, make no mistake that your values are being tested, ‘Tarius. Instead of taking things at face value, look at what your situation reflects back to you about yourself. This week you can expect big-deal intense energies impacting everyone, and it’ll harsh your New Year mellow if you let it. Pick your battles wisely; if you observe rather than jump in the ring, things are likely to work themselves out on their own.



Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Strap yourself in ‘cause you’re in for quite a ride. This week the intense and compulsive energies of Pluto will meet the Sun in your sign, and all hell’s about to let loose. Old family patterns are emerging with people that you’re close to so that you can heal them. Don’t put your head in the sand and pretend it’s not happening or go on a fixing spree. Understand how you got here – what did you do and what did you consent to that brought you this dynamic? That’s the most direct route to healing it.




Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Your subconscious mind is working overtime, and that will either facilitate breakthroughs or make you feel like you’re breaking down. Pay special attention to your dreams, Aquarius. You may find some prophetic stuff popping up in them by the end of this week, or you may feel like your intuitive senses are extra sparkly. If you’re trying to make a change or figure out something that’s been eluding you, this is an excellent time for getting ahead of it.




Feb. 19-March 20

If you try to make people like you, you’re going about things all wrong. When your attention is fixated on what others think or feel about you instead of your own feelings and thoughts, you get into a demoralizing mess. This week will bring you intense relationship vibes, but that doesn’t need to be a bad thing. Let others have whatever feelings they do, and only focus on being the most authentic and forthright version of yourself that you can be, my love.
