Get ready for the feels! It’s Springtime, and on the 20th we move into Aries Season. It’s time for fresh starts, new connections, and longer days. This shift in season means it’s time for letting in the light; remember to look up, and to seek the evidence of new life that’s all around you.
On the 17th we have a New Moon in sensi Pisces at 6.12amPST. New Moons happen at the moment when the Sun (your identity) and the Moon (your emotions) are at the exact same degree, and this time of internal unity is powerful for beginnings. If you find yourself agitated or unhappy now, it’s likely to be wholeheartedly so; as hard as that might be, it’s useful information, so pay attention. A New Moon in Pisces can increase your empathy, make you feel more idealistic, or incline you to disassociate. This one is happening with an activating square from Mars. This may have you feeling on edge, so be aware of your defenses to make sure that they don’t get the better of you. This marks a time when you will need to fight for what you love and to do so with empathy. When you fight out of hate, you end up demonizing others. Find the humanity in the people you’re dealing with so that even if you have to draw a hard line, you don't do it ways that bleed your own humanity. If you feel offended, excluded, or hurt, it’s tempting to pick fights, get down on yourself, or to reject the person that upset you – throwing out the baby with the bathwater style.
Remember that everyone is going through it right now; we all have our own perspectives and experiences, and we are all allowed to be imperfect. Before you drop your judgments at someone’s feet, ask yourself if it’s best to stand up, or if it’s healthier to walk away. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone but you. Let your actions speak for themselves, lovers. Just because you’re offended, doesn’t mean you’re right. Just because you’re right, doesn’t mean that you have to assert your truth. Just because you speak your mind, doesn’t mean that everyone has to listen. If you’re going to act, do it because it reflects your ideals and convictions; do it because it’s right for you, and not because you’re attached to any particular outcome.
Make space for disagreements and differences, and choose your battles with care. Be a part of conversations that matter to you, but don’t forget who your real enemies and allies are.
March 21-April 19
Get calm before you get going this week. No matter how wonderful the things coming at you are, you need to first get right with yourself, Aries. Fear and intuition are not the same. The voice of your most reliable instincts are not emotional; they come from a neutral place of inner knowing. When you feel yourself caught up in anxieties, you’re not the best equipped to understand or mobilize on the things that matter to you. Prioritize self-understanding over action for best results.
April 20-May 20
You’ve gone as far as you can go, Taurus, and if you persist in staying in this lane, you’re likely to feel pretty awful. It’s not that what you’re doing is “bad” or “wrong”, but it’s time for change, and it’s been time for a while now. The New Moon on the 17th is a fantastic opportunity for you to seek the truth of what you desire. Don’t get caught up in the “how will I do it?” part just yet; find your truth, and let the rest unfold organically from there this week.
May 21-June 21
It’s not magic; when you take steps towards your goals, you just feel better, Twin Star. This week is an excellent time to try new things but especially to follow-through on aspirations you’ve long held. Yearning and hope are desire plus inspiration, just without the results yet. Don’t skip steps or attempt to start in the middle, but act as though you know you’re going to get where you want to go. Breathe through your fears, and fake it till you make it this week, my love.
June 22-July 22
Don’t let others define your worth – only you can do that. It’s important that you take stock of where you’re giving away power and authority over your sense of self, Moonchild. If you’re not open to hearing the truth no matter what it is, don’t ask; if you don’t trust a person, don’t make yourself vulnerable to them. You may not have control over much, but you can influence where you allow your attention to linger. Find your value from your own perspective, my love.
July 23-Aug. 22
Let your people hold you up, Leo. You don’t need to go it alone, and it’s even okay to ask for love and support when things are going wonderfully. This week is all about the exchange of love. How you allow yourself to be cared for, how you care for others, and who you choose to give your best self to are all excellent topics for you to meditate on. You have so much to give, but you must use your best discernment. In a world full of possibility, what do you choose, Leo?
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
This week will give you plenty of chances to grow, but in order to take them, you’re going to have to be brave. Don’t look outside of yourself for markers of your success, Virgo. How you feel about what you’re doing and the impact it’s making is the ultimate definition of your achievements. If you are “succeeding” but don’t like the way it feels, something is seriously off. Pay attention to your true feels so you can make supportive adjustments this week.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
It’s time to figure out what’s most important to you, Libra. If you don’t have a clear process of evaluating your options, you’re likely to be feeling like you’re drowning in some pretty shallow waters this week. Don’t place other people’s wisdom above your own; everyone’s got an opinion, but only you have to live with the consequences of your actions. Remember what you most deeply care about, and align your actions with those things, my love.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Instead of struggling against adversity, it’s time to take pause, Scorpio. If you go into a fight being motivated by fear, you’re likely to say and do things that don’t fully reflect your position. Choose your battles wisely this week. You may not feel energetic, so remember that you’ll get farther by feeding what you believe in than fighting what you don’t. Allow yourself to accept the support of your allies and feel the benefit of all that you have available to you, especially if you’re feeling down.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Other people’s perspectives are just that – their own. Don’t try to convince them that how you see things is correct or attempt to take on their views as your own, Sagittarius. Allow yourself to experience differences without placing value judgments on them, especially when it’s tempting to do otherwise this week. Your path is yours alone to take, so at the end of the day, you’ve got to do what’s right for you and let others do the same.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You’re on the right path, but your anxieties are keeping you from enjoying it. Instead of seeking answers, attempt to sit with your questions. Instead of fixing problems, try to better understand them first. Try to accept with humor what life gives you instead of getting tangled in the weeds this week. Breathe through stresses, and try your best. Upsets and missteps are parts of a life well lived; don’t let yours keep you from showing up, Capricorn.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Own it, Aquarius! You’ve done some things recently that you aren’t completely comfortable with, and it’s throwing you off. You’re human (for real!), and you’re allowed to make mistakes. Cut yourself some slack, not only for some much-deserved peace but also so that you can actually learn from your situation. Convert your troubles into inspiration by being willing to learn and grow when you’re most tempted to shut down, my love.
Feb. 19-March 20
When you give too much attention to what you think others are feeling, you lose track of your own perspective. This is not only disempowering, but it’s disorienting. Try to keep your eyes on your own homework, Pisces. Don’t look for answers outside of yourself before you first look within. You may have to change your mind, change your affiliations, or sit with things a bit longer. In any case, you’re in need of balance, not solutions, this week.
