Pisces (February 19-March 20)
There is a whole lot of potential fun in your horoscope this week after an empowering one last week. There may be some negotiating that needs to take place, an internal one, around values--particularly having to do with sexuality, children, and expressing joy. The questions might be: what are you willing to allow yourself to do to express yourself fully? What values are yours and what are the results of family, religion, and society? How far can you let yourself go without any internal blowback? How can you feel good about yourself while expanding your ideals? This is the most sensitive of areas that reside with one of the most generally sensitive of archetypes (Pisces). Considering the drive and potential that are inherent this week the possibilities of transcendent, mystic union exists if you can work out the mental mechanics. Later in the week should provide some illumination to this quest and possibly even partner(s).
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
There are some that enjoy the word career and there are those that prefer it’s derivation, careening. It’s possible to not even get involved in the debate and instead focus on what your deeper calling or vocation may be. Either way, there’s little doubt that the idea of your place in the world is under intense focus these days and it may even leave you feeling a bit caged in and constricted. Perhaps you don’t like what you’re doing or perhaps you don’t like the way you are doing what you’re doing. Perhaps though, you are realizing, crystal clear, that what you feel called to do, what your very voice wants to cry out for in exaltation just doesn’t have a match or a name. If this is the case, or if any of this is the case (shoot-even if none of this is the case!) you have every opportunity to dissolve those ideas of the world and your place in it and imagine your ideal. You may be thinking, “but there’s little time for imagining”, and you’re probably right; however, you would be hard pressed to find a better time to tap into the divine reaches of your cosmic birthright and drift into the mystic.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
In forging new and hopefully fruitful alliances it is necessary to let go of old ideas. Working on on one within a group could prove to be beneficial in such a situation as this could allow you the safe space to push beyond your comfort zone. These intimate zones are the perfect mirrors to engage with your deeper, most private self and realize that which needs to go and that which can still be useful. If in this process you feel the pinch of a lack of resources or a trend towards feeling as though you are giving more than you get, this could be the signal to let go and trust. See, the astrology seems to be suggesting that the details may be fuzzy but the higher truths that they point to may be precise. It seems that if you go with the precision suggested by your intuition, rather than getting lost in the details that may lead you astray, this may just empower the alliances you are attempting to form—and you can get down to the deeper why of the group.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
It’s never easy to experience both exuberant, uninhibited exaltation and gut-wrenching pain all at the same time. It’s even more difficult to experience this over and over through a series of weeks but I sense that this is where things have been. There is a diplomacy that must be managed when you know that you have gained much and been rewarded through an extremely difficult and emotionally challenging time. Composure is the key, decorum is needed to sooth ruffled feathers, burst ego’s and sad, sad hearts. You possess all of that this week and more and you will shine best if you seek to awaken and embody the role of the sacred servant. This is needed from you more than usual, perhaps even more than could be expected—but that can be the nature of the sacred servant—to give without thinking of the reward. If you follow the guidance of your inner light, radiating so strongly at this time, you will no doubt have those thoughts extracted from your consciousness and replaced with the egoless wash of blissful love.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
It seems as though there’s a secret you’re holding—at least one—and it’s impacting your emotional state. It seems that there is too much that you’re trying to control when you already know from experience that the best way to grasp anything is to let it go. Whatever it is about what you do for work and its relationship with your deeper calling (if those are not aligned already) will continue to cause friction and, hopefully, drive you to a higher truth. The task of crystallizing your being continues along with this search and it’s all leading into a drive that you will have to pursue your deeper calling. This week will also shine a light on your presence in the community and you may have the opportunity to find release and comfort in service to one or several groups that you enjoy alignment. Just remember that those secrets have a way of leaking out so continued self-reflection will be of great benefit to walking with integrity.
Libra (September 22-October 23)
Sometimes you just feel good. It doesn’t matter that change is happening all around you and it’s hard to keep track of who has come or who has gone. It doesn’t matter that you may be examining deeply what it is you offer to others and value in yourself and bring to relationships. It’s true that an examination such as this can be difficult—depressing even—yet it feels like you’re still feeling good. It doesn’t matter that you continue ruminating over deeply embedded emotions, stirring up fears and igniting anger. Really, when you can’t quite put your finger on things the best thing to do is to feel good (think positive, be grateful, walk with appreciation). Trust that you will find the answer to these troublesome queries as the week goes on—and continue to be grateful. This is most important because as the week marches on a light will be shone on some of this darker parts of your psyche illuminating those hidden aspects that have been influencing you most intensely.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
What’s the missing ingredient in your search for self-realization? Is it a stronger connection with divinity? Perhaps it’s expression of your creativity? (Note: some would say these are not mutually exclusive) Depending on how you think of, or perhaps even react to these questions, is a good measure for how you will feel for the next coming weeks. One way or another your creative/spiritual process will be confronted with the divine. Did I just write, “Confronted with the divine”? Yes, I did and I stand by that statement: the divine will confront you however you may mistake this as confusion, delusion, misunderstanding, or dismiss it (the divine) as having trouble focusing. These experiences may be the result of resistance on your part to the divine’s path of communication or even your attempts to hold on to your ideas in the creative process vs. just letting the ideas flow. This is the time you need to turn off your rationality, attempt to grasp subtle impressions, and most important of all daydream. Follow this path and you may just find, feel, or sense an epiphany of self-realization.
Leo (July 22-August 23)
It’s your annual house cleaning time: out with the old and in with the new, what has value, what needs to go? What do I have to offer? What is my worth? It’s true that this is not just a once a year thing and that in fact asking these questions and addressing these issues is best done every day, every hour, every moment. It’s equally true that internal dynamics and cyclic processes make certain times more apt for the process and the astrology suggests that this is a time for a thorough inventory. It also suggests the one of places to reflect on in home. How do my family and ancestry shape who I am to others? Am I satisfied with the life I’ve created thus far? What changes could be made, responsibilities taken on, or challenges clearly understood to process emotional understanding? What truths shape my world, are they mine, and do I want to keep them? Although these are not at all easy questions to answer they are the one’s that will lead to the greatest amount of autonomy and hence, self-realization.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Did you know that when a woman has a second baby it “shows” on the outside earlier than the first pregnancy? It seems then, based on only this, that expansion prepares and paves the way for more expansion. Seriously, I hope I’m not offending mothers, but this is really on my mind right now and there is relevance in your astrology. See, there has been and will continue to be an expansion and growth in your emotional body and I’m hoping that the vessel is already a bit flexible. If not there will be some pains along the way, although it might be worth remembering the idea that “pain is the touchstone of spiritual healing” (whatever the hell that might mean to you). Whatever this emotional rollercoaster has been about the time to understand, articulate, and then transform your feelings about them is at hand. It may be wise to carefully spend time developing those feelings without going full throttle with the emotions, if that is at all possible.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
You didn’t think you would just take that creative writing class and produce the next War and Peace did you? Look, there is no doubt that you have a lot to offer right now in the way of creative communication but there is a strong indication that this is more of a long-term, dig deep, work hard kind of passage. It’s entirely possible the epiphany comes this week (again) that things are happening a couple of steps at a time and it’s best not to rush. Luckily, thoughts will turn to home around the time of this epiphany and you may find all sorts of projects to distract you from the desire to forge onward and force this thing through. Your mind will have the opportunity to seamlessly trend towards your garden, your mother, or contact with ancestors in the spirit realm…perhaps all three. These relationships can remind you of the importance of time given to honor the inspiration that derives from intuition and cannot be forced through rationality. Listen to the sacred, divine mother that resides at your hearth. There you may find peace.
