Pisces (February 19-March 20)
There is something extra meaningful coming through your emotions this week. It’s something that you will not only recognize and think about but also seek to clarify and articulate. This is not an easy, but it’ll be worth it. Emotion is defined in a very circular way in the many dictionaries I checked that keep pointing to feelings, but one way to think of it is energy in motion. Feelings are definitely not emotions though; feelings are the interpretation of emotions (a Venus function that has merit here). Emotions are something that happen pre-thought and pre-verbal. There is not much control over them happening although to make it off the playground safe it’s imperative to learn how to deal with them. Emotions are often unprocessed energy that doesn’t necessarily fit in the rational, social world and yet, they pulse through each and every one of us to one degree or another. This will be an important time to examine your emotions and consider how they affect your whole. It’s possible that the opportunity will come through interactions with family or simply an event or circumstance that sparks some memory.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
I once had a lover tell me to make love to her with my mind. I gotta tell you it drove me nuts. I just didn’t get it and, well, I just didn’t get it…I’m pretty sure you do though and that you will have a driving urge to do so starting this week. Not only that but it looks like you will have willing partners in your quest for lovemaking through the mind. If this is not where the energy takes you then there will at least be a need to communicate your sense of aesthetics; your senses will be keen to this. There is a deeply creative spark that has been lit and I hope you have the opportunity to fan its flames. This is one of the most difficult and dynamic aspects of life because of the need most of have had to hang on to control in order to feel secure. To let go and play, make love, and recite poetry requires a freedom of self that once granted, in a launch pad to other dimensions.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
First came the feeling, then came the ideas, and now the light bulb is glowing about a project that you think will be well-received. Not only do you have all the necessary resources but you now also have the strength of purpose and drive to administer the people and resources properly. There may be a crisis in action regarding a love affair. Love unrequited? Sex talk gone awry in an established relationship? Those are only a couple of the possibilities, but I see some tension in this area of life and some potentially volatile emotions early in the week as the Sun changes signs to Gemini. You can’t control everything, and forcing your will on others will very likely produce resentment. Discretion is the key, and honest, humble statement of feelings. It will be challenging to articulate your emotions into feelings, especially if you pressure yourself to, so step back and find a way to objectify them before you communicate. Make sure you channel some of this energy through physical exercise lest you burn out.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
Things are looking and feeling much better at home than they have in a while. It seems as though the clouds have parted recently and there is harmony in your deep emotional reserves with what you project to your partners. This is the reward derived from the hard work you’ve put in over the past few months. Much has been happening to highlight whom you are and what you have to offer in relationships and it has been difficult to tangle with some of these questions. Accept the harmony of the moment and recognize it as fruits of purification. Nothing can grow without nurturing and you did that well. This is part of the long-term path of dissolving those aspects of personality that just don’t work anymore and in turn discover what does. It’s entirely possible that you’ll feel like you’re living in a dream and who’s to argue with you? You can imbibe all you like but I doubt you’ll match the high you’ll have by being present with your love, and speaking your truth.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
It looks like you’ve built a defensive structure to protect some emotional vulnerability. That may be a good idea considering the sea of change that you’ve been navigating these past few months. Don’t forget to give yourself credit for staying the course; this type of devotion to change is not easy. Yet if you haven’t handled this so gracefully don’t hang on to any disappointment or stew over a loss of pride. It’s most likely part of the lesson. You’re a study in contradictions right now. As much as you want and need to focus inward to conceive, form images, and eventually crystallize what and who you want to be you are at the same time drawn to engage with people in intense, deep, involved discussion. (I hope that sounds appealing.) As much as you feel the need to work, alone and unhampered, pulsating and electrifying though your central nervous system, you also feel this deep desire to merge with a multitude of lovers artists in some form of creativity.
Libra (September 22-October 23)
There is a lot of restless energy in your chart that has been building up for some time, and is about to come to a peak. The energy infusion this week will highlight some of the broader ideas bout life that you haven’t considered in a while, and a few brand new ones. It may just enable you to see the rut that you’ve been in and start planning an escape. There is definitely the energy for some long distance travel here. Perhaps it’s because the in-laws are coming? Pay your dues first; keep the peace and then the reward. There is also this concern: are you restless because of an underlying hurt that you don’t want to deal with? Maybe there is the subconscious urge to move so you don’t have to sit with yourself? It's been said wisely that travel is a good way to get to know yourself. A shift in geographic point of view can give you a perspective on what you've been looking at but not seeing. Then you can decide how much you like it, which is to say, yourself.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You know that the overall theme right now is change. Not just a little bit of change or anything either but some kind of epic, world-shifting alteration is underway and you are feeling empowered to try new things, think new ways, and experience more of reality. Just remember, it’s not going to happen overnight. Step by step, day-by-day, and person by person, gentle persistence is your guiding principle, and utilizing the energy that is best available at any particular time. The energy right now is collection of information: data gathering, networking, communicating, and perhaps short-term travel. Through these lenses you will understand the options available to you in this process of recreation. Searches like this have a way of stirring things to the surface that had been forgotten and you may encounter some memories that you must come to terms with. Trust your intuition when/if this happens and try not to overthink. Not only will you waste valuable time and cause a stir but also you may miss the more vital message.
Leo (July 22-August 23)
Looks like you are surrounded by fun-filled, stimulating, and fascinating people with innovative ideas. I imagine it is just what you’ve needed after spending much of the past few weeks mired in work and pressing responsibilities at home. This week is an opening to experience yourself and all your ruminations in the light and reflection of others. This is a great time to exchange ideas and information with a variety of folks and learn about and formulate manifestation of all sorts of things: social agenda’s, familial relationships, utopia, your ideal world and relationships. Plus it’s just nice to feel part of the crowd sometimes, and I suspect, now is one of those times. It’s always good to step back and analyze your own agenda when possible and especially when engaged with others. Are you misjudging someone else’s or your own intentions? Are being mindful of boundaries? Many questions have been raised about administration of resources and this can lead to emotional extremes. One way or another, you’re likely to encounter lessons about give and take, whose is whose, and compromise.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
It’s that time of year again. Everything seems to speed, up doesn’t it? It looks to me like things are moving at warp speed for you right now and you may need to remember the little things: do the dishes, walk the dog, go to the grocery store, tell the truth. Remember, the devil is in the details, though so are the angels. Seriously, there is so much energy and intensity that may engulf you, and good feelings too, that it could be destructive if not managed well. Here’s one of the details: be mindful of what you say and who you say what to at work lest there occur any regretful interactions. Be cautious about any thought of revenge. If you talk over any doubts you may have or hurt feelings with a trusted friend, you will both be less inclined to take things personally. One last detail: be sure to put the plug in the jug in time if you’re out partying with friends or colleagues, lest a good time gets out of hand.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The crab symbolizes the constellation Cancer and often the shell is utilized to articulate the tough exterior protecting an inner vulnerability. There is something brewing in your chart this week that may necessitate using that armor, something deeply significant about your sexuality and the conditioning patterns that govern it. We all have these impersonal rules and guidelines that govern our autonomous energies whether from church, society, or family and collectively they are coming under intense scrutiny, but this is personal for you right now. If you allow it to enter your psyche, you will feel either empowered to explore and experience the bliss of sexual union or fantasize about the several lovers you would have if unfettered. This will lead, again if you give yourself permission, to a re-evaluation of what you consider and ideal relationship. It’s ok if what you have doesn’t measure up to that ideal; it doesn’t mean you have to split. It just means you’ve peeled another layer off that James and the Giant Peach-sized onion.
