Astrology by Lisa Stardust
This week kicks off with a lovely aspect between Mercury, who is in passionate Leo, and Jupiter, who is in philosophical Sagittarius. Our desires can become a reality on the 21st, as both Mercury and Jupiter want to create the vision and dream within. Venus enters Virgo on the 21st, adding practicality and reality to our vision of love. Last Quarter Moon in Taurus on August 23rd allows us to expel negativity in our lives hours before the Sun’s ingress into Virgo. With the Sun’s astrological switch on the 23rd, we will be entering the last month of summer. We will become more analytical and discriminating in our thoughts, as we will make pragmatic decisions for the next 30 days. Venus and Mars link up in Virgo on August 24th, giving us the rare opportunity to celebrate our yin and yang energies. A few days later, on the 26th, Venus gets a tender push from Uranus, who is retrograde in Taurus, to think outside the box in matters of love and money.
March 21-April 19
The past two months have helped you rest your lovely bones. Now, you’re ready to step back into the limelight and take on tasks. The only caveat to your enthusiasm is that you may not have the time or energy to complete all your ventures at once. Give yourself a break from your overachieving tendencies and take on matters one day at a time to avoid physical burnout. You may even complete more than you expected, as you aren’t rushed or burdened to produce work at lightning speed. Be mindful of your body and rest.
April 20-May 20
Your sensual and creative desires are at play this week. Release your passions. Use your witchy mindset and use sex magic to transcend your desires into reality. Not only will you have the power to manifest your dreams, but you will feel at peace with the world you live in. You will also become one with your body, which will help you connect to your innate earthy energy. Your orgasms will be the catalyst for pleasure and growth. Meditate on your artistic and creative endeavors while pleasing yourself. Your artistic skills and visions will be elevated and applauded by others.
May 21-June 20
Your friends and family will be confused by your sentiments this week, as you are in the mood to spend time alone reflecting than being the social butterfly that you are. There’s nothing wrong with taking time to yourself. Just be sure to let others know you are not ignoring them, in order to avoid confrontations later in the week. Treat yourself to a reiki session to calm your nerves and relax your body. After all, you’ve certainly earned a week filled with R & R. Indulge yourself and reap the pleasantries you’ve worked hard for under the summer sky.
June 21-July 22
Put the pen to the paper and start drafting your new visions. By writing down your dreams, you are expressing your desires to the universe—who is listening. Write from the heart and let your truest intentions be known. You will be surprised by what you are granted from the world as a result of your unfiltered honesty. By manifesting your dreams, you are setting them into motion. The world is open to support your endeavors and the stars are aligned to put your passions into reality. Words and thoughts become things—use yours to your advantage to expedite victories.
July 23-August 22
Although you’re known to have high confidence, you have certainly lost a lot of your luster and courage this past month. Most of which is due to you comparing yourself to others. You will never fit a certain mold—which is OK. You’re not meant to. Understanding and accepting your individuality is key this week. Embracing the parts of yourself that you’ve neglected will help you transcend your energy. Implementing self-care and affirmations into your daily routine will give you the strength to love yourself more—which is what your heart desires. You’ll feel reborn by reconnecting with yourself throughout the week.
August 23-September 22
You may feel as though you’re being pulled in too many different directions this week, which will be extra stressful considering you don’t want to deal with any issues. Try to unwind and connect to your higher consciousness instead of dwelling on problems. You’ll feel at peace and centered by connecting to your enlightened self. This will allow you to purge your mind of negative thoughts and embrace positivity. You’re doing the best that you can. Don’t put extra pressure on yourself. Appreciate all the wonderful things you have achieved and accomplished this week. Don’t let others bring you down.
September 23-October 22
You often wear your heart on your sleeve, which is why this week may juxtapose your inner vibe. You’re not love bombing others with compliments or flirtations. You’re strategically expressing your feelings and proceeding in partnerships with caution. Recent feelings of self-doubt have forced you to hide your emotions, as you feel your sentiments are not reciprocated by others, causing you to be protective of your heart to avoid rejection. Don’t let fear hold you back from speaking your truth. While you may be scared to sing your heart out, it’ll be more difficult to keep your emotions bottled up.
October 23-November 21
This week you’re giving back to the world by offering your time and energy to those in need. Your humanitarian skills are activated, giving you the motivation and desire to help others. You’re expanding your heart and awakening your spirit by helping the local community thrive. Through your charity, you will help others flourish and create relationships that will last your whole life. Create an event with your coven to raise money for those in need. You will be surprised by how fast your efforts can help others flourish. In return, you will feel happy, emotionally satisfied, and at peace.
November 22-December 21
It’s never too late to change career paths. While this week won’t make you question your professional goals, you may want to slip into another sector or division of your company. Your professional interests are evolving, forcing you to elevate your current career path and expand your visions. You want more from your daily grind this week. You don’t want to be a pencil pusher anymore—you want to be a part of a vision bigger than you that you believe in. Fortunately for you, an opening at your current company will help you achieve your dreams. Apply and you’ll succeed.
December 22-January 19
You’re embracing a new mindset and philosophical endeavor, which will help to ease anxieties within. Taking a mediation class will allow you to connect with earthy sentiments, particularly your body. You will be able to bridge the gap between your body and mind, which will help heal your chakras as well as mending stresses. A yoga class will also allow you to feel centered, giving you the chance to rid your mind of negative thoughts. These relaxing grounding classes can lift up your spirit this week—which will do your body good. All your anxieties will melt away by week’s end.
January 20-February 18
It’s important for you to implement boundaries with others this week, as you will feel like others are taking your kindness for granted. While it may be hard at first to put your foot down on matters, you will come to see that setting limits is important not only for your well being, but for others as well. Be direct with others about your expectations within relationships and partnerships in order to create mutual respect. Understand that this is a two way street: you have to practice what you preach and not overstep, as you may not apply such rules yourself.
February 19-March 20
It’s important for your peace of mind to evaluate all of your relationships this week, as you are fed up with the inconsistent energetic windfall you’ve been experiencing on a daily basis. Cut out the drama and decide what kind of partnerships you wish to create with others. There’s no one size fits all for relationships. Create the energy you want on your terms. Instead of dissolving relationships, try to work on them. You don’t have to cut the cord just yet. Your tender heart isn’t ready to let go. You have time to decide how to proceed with others.
