This week kicks off with agro Mars and self-centered Sun sitting on top of each other, and the results may be irritating. Expect tensions and tempers to be running high from the 25th-27th. This transit will give you a boost to get things done or take risks, but it may also make you feel mad and quick to lash out. Watch your ego so you don’t take things personally that have nothing to do with you. If you need to shout “Serenity Now” into a pillow to keep from acting out, do it. Strive to get things done, not tear them down, especially on the 26th and 27th.
The big deal right now is the build up of lunar vibes as we near the Eclipses – a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on the August 7th and a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 21st. The Moon is a watery planet, and the issues that come from it relate to the interconnectedness of all things; how we feel, and the patterns at play in our lives are set off by Lunar events, and August is bringing up all of it.
Expect your feelings to be extra in the coming days and weeks. The tension of Leo and Aquarius is much about attention versus intention. If you know who you are and what you intend to do, attention is icing on your cake – not the cake itself. When you don’t really know who you are, or you don't know your own value, it’s easy to seek validation from outside sources. Align yourself with what you value – not just with what will get you external validation. Don't worry so much about what anyone else thinks of you! Get in balance with yourself by learning from your own patterns and honoring your own feels. This is easy to say but hard to do, to be sure, but it’s well worth the effort. You’ve got to feel it to heal it, so follow your feels down the rabbit hole, lovers.
March 21-April 19
Instead of second-guessing yourself, it’s time to take action. This week you will have to weigh other people’s opinions against your own and make a choice; typically this may not be too hard, but these are not typical times. Keep your eyes on the prize, Aries. If you stay connected to your vision for your future, it will be easier to parse out what’s good for you versus what’s good on paper. Seek to create a joyful path, even if you have to diverge from others to walk it.
April 20-May 20
Change can be uncomfortable and hard, even when it’s change for the better. You’re going in the right direction, Taurus, but it’s likely to feel all kinds of intense this week. Instead of looking outside of yourself for answers, it’s time to return to a little place called me. Align yourself with your own motivations so that you can feel good about yourself, on your own terms. You can’t have both arms open wide to the future if you’re still clutching your past, my love.
May 21-June 21
While you for sure need things to change, if you don’t do some work of your own, things simply won’t flow. This week you’re going to be feeling restless, but if we’re being totally honest – a little impulsive. Take your desire for expansion, and get real about what it’s comprised of. If you’re just trying to get away from the results of your own patterns at play, you might as well stop right there. Cultivate clarity about what you want, but also what you’re willing to do to make it happen, Twin Star.
June 22-July 22
It takes great effort to get still enough to truly hear your inner voice. Just because a labor looks passive doesn’t make it easy, and it certainly doesn’t make it less useful. This week your work is to tolerate your worries without running away from them or making them bigger than they need to be. It’s tempting to do anything but feel bad feels, but it’s a mistake. Don’t abandon yourself, Moonchild. Peace is not happiness; it’s being able to experience quiet amidst the chatter.
July 23-Aug. 22
On your bad days, the path between your ego and your center of strength is paved with vanity. You are fierce and capable, but sometimes the way that you want things to be is so compelling that you try to force it. This week you’re in a difficult spot; your heart may tell you to push it, but your head (begrudgingly) knows better. Take some time to reflect on which of your choices have brought you to this place. Understand and ultimately transform your motives, Leo.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you feel overwhelmed or upset about something, it’s easy to jump to conclusions and act out without even realizing it. Don’t use logic as a way to distance yourself from your difficult feelings, Virgo. Your relationships may be in a confusing place, but that doesn’t mean the very worst. The only way to take proper responsibility for yourself is by first being able to know where you’re at by exploring your feelings without judgment. It’s OK to find that you’re wrong; own it and carry on.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
There are highs and lows in life, and you’ll feel like a human yoyo if you allow either of them to define you. It’s time to invest in your faith – whether it’s faith in a Higher Power, in the bigger picture, or in your own durn self. If you keep on telling yourself that the sky is falling, then it almost doesn’t even matter if it does or not – either way, you’ll end up trying to run away from calamity. Align yourself with the positive potential inherent in all things this week, Libra.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You’re not ready to let go, but holding on isn’t working either. Instead of attaching yourself to what you (think) you want, go bigger, Scorpio. Invest in the conditions that you believe will make you happy instead of the outcomes. The answers are hard to find, but the path is right here, right now. Don’t seek the answer; seek the path, and let the answers find you. I know it sounds abstract, but all you really need is patience and a commitment to living in integrity with yourself.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You’re ready! The problem is that you keep on coming up with new ideas, taking on new strategies, and finding new truths to inspire you, and it’s exhausting. This week you’re likely to enjoy breakthroughs or get stalled by breakdowns. To be honest, they’re kinda equal; you need a break, and if you don’t take it yourself, your hand may be forced. If you feel the need for a pause, don’t pressure yourself to push past it. Insight and growth often come in silent moments, ‘Tarius.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
It’s time to trust in yourself, Cappy. You can’t know if you’re going to be successful, safe, or happy, but you have to chose to trust in yourself or to make changes. This week, your uncertainties are wrapped in fear of failure and dipped in a desire to hide. Don’t seek solutions, seek your inner self. Find your center of strength and decide to act from that place, even if you have to fake it ‘till you make it. Fear is not intuition, and it’s not more reliable than faith.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
In the immortal words of Axel Rose “all you need is a little patience.” This week you’re on call to protect the things you care about most by giving them their proper weight and forethought, Aquarius. Things are moving very quickly in the emo realm, and it would be a huge shame if you were to blow past them and miss out on your own heartfelt experience. You’ve got decisions to make, and it’s in your best interest for them to be heartfelt, even if that means moving through some uncomfortable terrain.
Feb. 19-March 20
With the two upcoming Eclipses, it’s extra emo out there; everyone is overwhelmed by emotion, but for you it’s just a day in the life, Pisces. If you can keep up with your commitments this week, you’ll be doing fine. The trick is to take your problems and inhibitions, and find a way to convert them into growth experiences. Don’t worry over what you don’t have – investigate the potential you can develop. Sometimes a change in perspective changes everything.
