Aries (March 20-April 19)
Pisces (January 20-February 19)
The more you invest in your creativity the greater the sense of individuality and accomplishment you will feel. This can be acutely apparent this week if you respect your inner dive to find harmony among the many and complicated tasks before you. It would be fruitful to spend time with children, talk to family about your own childhood, or honor the child within. If you manage the time well you will be sure to find a harmony in the many relationships that you engage in and find clarity about who you really are as opposed to who you assume, or others assume you to be. The energy is ripe for articulating the intangible in picture, words, or experience.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Venus represents the internal function of feelings, the interpretation and response to pre-verbal/pre-thought emotions. Not only is Venus retrograde at this time, and therefore internalized rather than socialized, but also, it is in your solar 12th house, a house where we tend to hide things. This may be creating a challenge in clarity, and hence, articulation of those deep, swirling emotions that have most certainly churned this week. Management and refinement of emotions are more apt to get you through any challenging experiences rather than trying to force an interpretation that may be too intangible. There is a call to creatively respond to serve the emotion.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
A birthday month can always be a reflective time to consider, not just the passing year, but also the many years gone by. It would not be surprising in the least to find that you are engaged in this time of review, particularly around your personal values and sense of aesthetics and how they match up in your personal relationships. As the week progresses, this dynamic grows and some aspect of it seeks transformation. It could involve your physical presentation (change of wardrobe? Hairstyle—want a Mohawk? Seeking deep meditation?) or something that is reflected back to you from a partner. Since one of the ways we get to know ourselves is through interaction with others it would serve you well to be aware of subtle exchanges you have with colleagues, friends, and lovers. There are truths to behold.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
You and your partner’s (business or otherwise) values may not always align, however, it would be wise to spend time in careful consideration of what your truths, values, and ethics are while allowing your significant other to act on their own. There will be plenty of moments where the need to articulate those ethics occur and when they do it would behoove you to so speak carefully and with thoughtful consideration of how your partner will respond. It can be easy to get carried away with yourself with the energy and empowerment that you may feel this week. At the same time there is an internal heat that can fuel an urge to engage in acts that aid in ego transcendence and engagement in taboo acts. How deep can you let yourself go may be a poignant question.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
The astrology of the Full Moon suggests an embodied connection with the psychic reality of the unity of all creation. Wow. A worthwhile exercise would be a walk in the woods, breathing thoughtfully, and consciously and surrender to earth. Consider your surroundings without putting words to your impressions, just allow the experience to unfold and expand. There is a truth available to you through your deepest emotional core and this exercise can help you accept that message. This energy will influence greatly your emotional understanding of you daily ego and help foster the new you crystalizing this year.
Libra (September 22-October 23)
It seems that self-realization is just not meant to be the slickest, easiest ride. True, there are those lucky few who arrive in this world with a clear sense of self and are able to take direct, conscious, positive movements towards their goals, however, they are the exception rather than the rule. You’re quest for your highest self, well underway and quite intense at this time, may have you drawn inward socially while feeling quite fearsome physically. This dichotomy is worth utilizing as a coat of (psychic) armor for the week, not to go to battle without, but to shield you for a journey within. There are messages awaiting your interpretation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Sharp, sudden insights infuse your creative coffers to overflowing with ideas. Two questions may need to be considered: Whom does your mental prowess serve and how do you manage these creative resources? The best course of action may be step by step, one thing at a time, slow and steady progression from task to task; otherwise you may lose focus on your end product due to an overdrive mind. You may feel compelled to, or challenged by, engaging with ideas of sex, power, and death that, depending on your ability to let go of conditioned ideas, will frighten or enlighten you. Either way, the experience will have an intensity that will be worth consideration in your idle or contemplative moments throughout the week.
Leo (July 22-August 23)
In The Song of Ice and Fire series of books by George R.R. Martin, it is often said that, “Words are wind”. This seems like an apt mantra for the week ahead as your relations may be buzzing with conversations. This may or may not suit you just fine, however the case may be though, it would be useful to step back and play the diplomatic lord of the land rather than the court jester. Wind and words both have weight and substance regardless of the way it is dismissed by the inhabitants of the vast worlds of the free cities and Westeros. You are also wide open to the creative vat of the cosmos if you are able to quiet all the sensations that may electrify your space. Turn off and tune in—and perhaps you can play the bardic storyteller.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
How does your past serve your present and future relationships? If you’re not ruminating on this at this time do not surprised if interactions this week stir the fountain of memories that have sat at rest in your blood and bones. In a general period of time that calls for change and purification, it can be easy to cling to old, habitual, worn out, and tired emotional reactions and beliefs. Rather than continue to live with these reactions, honor them with respectful attention and bid them rest if it is time for them to pass. Purification oftentimes requires elimination and it seems there are some old ideas that may need to float away to give rise to new aspirations.
