Aries (March 20-April 19)
Not that you're normally one to run with the pack, but lately you've been feeling a powerful desire to individuate, and it's possible that you may even have set intentions around this recently: to know, feel, and act as you are and as you want in relation to who you are at an innermost level. Anytime that intentions are set, ready and prepared, there is at some point a proving ground. This is the rubber meets the road time...it could be as simple (or not) as an intention to eat well and someone hands you a hot fudge sundae: that's your crisis in action. This week you will need to draw on all your resources to work through these types of challenges. The good news is you will think sharply and clearly articulate whatever it is you need and for the first time is a while you may feel your feet solidly on the ground.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
It's been a while since you felt in your element but you have some time ahead of you to feel quite grounded. This will not go unnoticed and there is a strong possibility people will remark on how at ease you seem. Considering the stress you've been under for the past couple of weeks a few night's out on the town are well deserved, just be careful not to overdue in the booze/substance department. You are feeling every bit the beauty that you are and that is deservedly so. It's easy to let the one's you love the most fall to the side when you have a lot of drive and incentive to fulfill creative projects. Make sure you take the time to let someone you know you love them.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
With all the recent news, and unfortunately most of it is bad, your intellect and curiosity, which is always so acute, may be feeling like a burden. It looks like you've already been on a consciousness expansion quest: seeking out an ultimate truth to live by (religion? political ideology? spiritual path?), so with all this new data input you may be maxing out. It's also possible that with all this new vision and seeking that you're neglecting old past wounds that are seeking recognition and healing. It would be wise to step back from the news, books, videos, or whatever other vehicle of information you've been using and retreat...however that may look: a trip to the hot springs, hiking in the forests, meditation, running the streets? This will help you integrate well the things that you've learned.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You are feeling some radical empowerment to speak your truth and this may be igniting things in personal relationships. This may be a surprise as you usually have a unique sense of how to make others feel comfortable and part of that is a gentle approach and voice. This is different though, there is a force and energy that you are not normally comfortable expressing however, you know you must. Like a lioness leaping to protect her cub, you are feeling quite protective and reactive about your needs and the needs of others. This energy extends beyond social or family relations to other sentient beings, non-ordinary reality existence, and strongly to Mother Earth. By weeks end you may be blinded by this feeling and have no choice but to surrender.
Leo (July 22-August 23)
There's a lot going on the periphery so it's a good time to use what wilderness trackers call, owl vision: to see in all directions without moving. This is a good metaphor for your week as events may be all around and outside of you. Your natural energy to be the center of attention will cause some friction if you do not take an objective view of your life and the events that transpire. If you do step back, you will have a major epiphany about the way you are understood by others. The realization may be challenging or enlightening depending on how you operate in the social/political world or your career. Whatever the insight is, take note, it's important and could frame the way you build your career/reputation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You've had a tendency to give yourself away in relationships lately because of a lack of clarity around ownership. It seems that you have decided that since you don't have a clear, concise idea of who owns what, that the best course of action is tallow your other to operate without hindrance. While you may be cool on the outside with this I imagine there is a stewing under the surface and you know you can't contain this frustration. Do what you do best: step by step analyze what you do know in some constructive way (journaling, organizing, discussing), and then communicate your needs. You have every right to your freedom and you have no reason to own someone else's challenges. This is always the slippery slope in relationships that many must navigate.
Libra (September 22-Octoner 23)
This week you will begin to develop a new truth about valuing your independence and self-realization within your relationships. The past month's turbulence is waning and you're now able to speak, just beware of the tendency you will have to say too much and be defensive. You do not have to defend yourself nor are you responsible for other's autonomy. Freedom is inherent and the only thing that might make you feel otherwise is that internal drive to be fair and loved. The lesson here is that overindulgence in attempting to build emotional security for another is a loss of your own sense of purpose. Since developing a new paradigm is a process rather than an event, this will take some time. Be sure to be lovingly detached in discussions about shared possessions.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
This week will begin a process of insights into what it means to build relationships. You will notice events, conversations, and interactions that encourage reflection. These will happen so that you may realize some outdated, crystallized reactions to people that no longer fit who you are (or who you are trying to be). It's not always easy to be in a process like this as it brings dynamic to the surface that may be challenging for both you and your partner. If you work with this energy though, with compassion, empathy, and patience, with yourself and others, it can also be a very exciting process. Essentially you are building a new and improved "you" for the world to see and you having everything you need for the project.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
There are some very positive revisions happening in your relationships this week but it will take some serious focus and refinement to understand all your options. It will take all that attention because you are aware of so many possibilities and feel a strong sense of freedom in your self expression. You want to express yourself as freely as possible and yet you know that may not jive with social conventions. You will have the opportunity to purge old structures, communicate creative, sexual needs, and expand your understanding of relationships if you work with this energy. The trick will be to conceive of a step by step, methodical plan that you can align with your own integrity and learn a way to communicate them effectively.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
A creative project that you've been putting off for some time will come into focus this week and you will have the opportunity to begin building on your vision. It will be important to allow time to be with yourself: walking, meditating, jogging, painting, writing....anything that gets you in touch with a quietness inside. This space will allow you access to your deepest core and inspiration and you have inspiration to spare at this time. You may find yourself sensitive to the judgments of others and that may cause you to rethink strategies. Don't fall for that trap. Most likely others are paying far more attention to themselves (just like you are) and not to what you are producing. Maybe the question to ask is: What/who am I doing this project for?
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
You've been so highly focused on your career lately that you may have neglected home. I expect that there will be a desire to spend some time with family (however that is defined), at home (however that is defined), or even in communion with the earth (however you accomplish that). It's important to pay attention to both the horizontal axis of life--the world of politics, reputation, career, and socializing--and the vertical--the connection to soul, spirit, evolving consciousness, shadow self, and deep emotions. If the balance is not met then compensation will be made unconsciously, usually though maladaptive behavior out side of one's integrity. There's nothing easy about keeping that equilibrium but for sure, it will come to awareness for you sometime this week. The funny thing is once you are well grounded you make yourself accessible to all sorts of possibilities...
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Who's truth are you living? Is this a question that is hounding you lately? You've been filled with so many ideas and beliefs about how life works but they aren't exactly aligned with what you've experienced. Really, somehow this all seems like a dream, and you just might as well not worry about finding an ultimate truth because it's all just theory. Yet somehow you know there is one thing you can count on and I think you may need to rely on it for now: where your feet are is where you are and if you put one in front of the other, without worrying about the impulse or motivation, you will be (somewhere else). And you know, isn't that the main part of the trip, that is, to be in a body and experience everything this world of density and matter has to offer? Everything else is just a story that you can edit along the way.
