Witch Tips

There’s so much going on right now, but the thing to watch out for is this week’s Lunar Eclipse at 22° Leo on the 10th. Lunar Eclipses are basically Full Moons on crack – they’re hella intense and bring up dynamics that have been developing for the last six months. They help us reset emotionally, but it takes real effort. Reflect on what was going down about six months ago, and connect it to whatever themes are up for you now. The effects of an eclipse often take awhile to fully present themselves, so be patient and kind as it plays out, lover, and keep this gem in mind: Emotions are not static. They ebb and flow, and like the ocean, they reveal something new on the shore whenever they do. Don’t seize on the first feeling you have, and let things play themselves out a bit this week.

The Full Moon Eclipse is meant to confront you with the emotional part of your reality, so whether it’s gorgeous or it sucks, it’s important for to you pay attention to what get’s revealed about you, your relationships, and life in general, Kitten.

As an added bonus, this emo flux is in Leo, a sign that loves attention, drama, and lurv – and all just in time for Valentine’s Day! It’s energies are courageous in the truest sense of the word – they’re brave and heartfelt and full of fire.  The trouble with these energies is that they’re so self-focused that you might blow past the obvi and miss out on what’s really going down; Leo is for sure the Rabbit and not the Turtle, but with everything going on in this crazy world, it’s important to pace yourself.  

There’s a huge difference between attention and love, and the crap side of Leo is that she doesn’t always know the difference. You’re not here to have smoke blown up your backside. Let love – self-love, romantic, platonic, or Universal love – transform you. Don’t settle for a love that lacks meaning. Embrace transformation and the healing that comes with it.

March 21-April 19

To help you reach your highest good, this Lunar Eclipse is going to confront you with your fear of losing control, Aries. The truth about love is that who you direct your love towards and what you’re willing to accept in return is more about you than the object of your affection. Let the power of love transform you this week, even if you have to leave some habit or relationship behind in order to do it. Honor your feels even as they bring you to some unchartered territory, my love.



April 20-May 20

Deep themes in your innermost personal life are hella up for you this week. Circumstances are going to push you to look at where, how, or with whom you find home. It’s time for you to confront some long-developing truth that doesn’t quite fit into what you thought you wanted for your life. Be open to powerful and sweeping changes, even if you don’t know what will come of them, Taurus. Uncertainty is an important phase on the way to a more perfect stability.



May 21-June 21

Sometimes you’ve got to pick a side, which is really hard for you because you can see things from every angle! This week’s passionate and fiery Lunar Eclipse will set you off, and if you’re unsure of what direction you wish to be pointed in, that could spell chaos. Focus on no more than three big things this week – something for you, something for us, and something for them. Find peace in the act of getting the things that mean the most to you done, Twin Star.



June 22-July 22

Your ruling planet is being eclipsed by the Sun, so you should be ready for your feels to be extra sensi, Moonchild. This week is not the time to pretend that everything’s OK when it’s not. Don’t let your desire to please or appease others make you abandon yourself. This Full Moon, try to avoid any impulse to be passive aggressive instead of clear and direct. You don’t need permission to stand up for what you believe in, even if it’s unpopular; honor your limits and your values this week.



July 23-Aug. 22

Take stock of your life, Leo. You’ve been working really hard on yourself –and you’ve come really far – but there so much work ahead of you too. The Moon is full in your sign but once a year, and this one is an extra intense Lunar Eclipse. Use its potent energies to get real about where you’re at. If you engage in radical self-acceptance, you’ll have to own the parts that you’re not super proud of, but that’s OK; replace shame and guilt with humility and compassion this week.



Aug. 23-Sept. 22

This can be a really magical time for you, Virgo. You’ve been holding on to so much junk that’s bogging you down, and half of it isn’t even yours. Believe it or not, instead of tracking all the ins and outs of your stories, you can actually just let it all go. You’ve got all the data you need; now you just need to make some decisions. What are you willing to do about it? If you continue to participate in situations that you know don’t work for you, that’s on you, buddy. Take a chance and move on this week.




Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Where do you belong, Libra? This week may bring up some really upsetting stuff, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You’ve been changing in small and big ways, and it was only a matter of time before it caught up with you. Allow yourself to get shook up so that you can reset your perspective to a place that’s more true to who you’ve become and to where you want to be. You’re strong and it’s time that you access the resilient and powerful parts of yourself and share them with the world.




Oct. 23-Nov. 21

Don’t confuse your will with your innermost wisdom, Scorpio. You’re going to be presented with a chance to let go of control and let things happen, but you’ve got to get out of your own way first. Be open to opportunities to expand how you experience and share love – whether it’s with your friend, yourself, or a stranger. It’s easy to shut down and get weird when you’re frightened, but it’s a missed opportunity. If you always got what you wanted, you’d be in serious trouble, my friend. Let light in from foreign sources this week.




Nov. 22-Dec. 21

This week is time to engage in some big-picture thinking. What you want and the lengths you’re willing to go to get it are vitally important. No matter what it feels like, not having what you want isn’t evidence of never getting it, ‘Tarius. The problem spots in your life are simply pointing you to where you need to work smarter and harder, my love. Ask for help wherever you can get it, and listen carefully to the answers. You don’t need things to move quickly – you need them to move in the right direction.



Dec. 22-Jan. 19

If you’re fixated on avoiding the worst-case scenario, how are you going to know when something good happens? You’re bound to have plenty of things to be worried about, but worry won’t help you, Capricorn. You know who you are, on a deep and solid level; don’t lose sight of that because that self-knowledge is something you can call on for strength. When you feel overwhelmed and emo, focus on the things that you have going for you in the here and now to refuel, so you can do what you need to do.




Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You know that pretty much all of your relationships have changed, Aquarius, but you’re not exactly sure yet what it all means yet. This week, allow others to reveal themselves to you before you immediately react. Strive to act in integrity with your own values and sense of right and wrong, regardless of what the other person is doing. If you’re side of the road is clean, it’ll be way easier to see theirs clearly. Assess where to go from there, my love.



Feb. 19-March 20

History is the greatest teacher we have, but it’s no fortuneteller. While you can’t know what’s ahead of you, still you must persist, Pisces. The fiery Lunar Eclipse on the 10th is a call for you to embrace the motivating and empowering parts of your ego. You’ve been working hard on yourself, and you’ve made it this far. Call on your inner fire to boost your vitality and change your life. Follow through, even when you feel intimidated this week.
