  • Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Revel in the unexpected. Throughout this week, take the opportunity to envision the life you want and take your first steps toward making your dream your reality. Remember, you are more than your mind. Your ambitions, body and voice alone hold so much more power than you think. 

  • Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Right now it may be easy to believe you must accept any seemingly well-meaning proposals that come your way. Your thoughts may persuade you to believe that every good thing that comes your way such as a work proposition may be the last good thing that happens. However, you must know that this thought process is not true. If the situation is not right for you then do not accept it. Other opportunities that are a better fit for you will trail after you let go of those that do not fit your standards. 

  • Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Everybody faces a period of time where your bravery seems to be nowhere in sight. This period of self-doubt does not label you as weak. Instead, think of this moment as a time to gain a deeper understanding that you are in the place you are right now for a reason. Remember, you have the skills that you need to break through any issues you are facing right now, and the fact you preserved another day is enough evidence to demonstrate your bravery. 

  • Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

See the idea of healing your own wounds, nurturing relationships, and living as your complete authentic self may seem like a straightforward task but in reality it rarely ever is. These projects take time, repetition, and habits that may make you wonder if all the hard work you are putting into it on a daily basis is even worth the trouble. But listen, even if you don’t notice the difference every day, know that simply trying is enough to already begin creating the impactful change you are trying to make.

  • Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Usually, you have many things that can keep you busy on a daily basis. However, once in a while you may begin to notice the world around you to start slowing down a bit and reveal all flaws or errors in your ways that you discover that you want to change or eliminate altogether. Nevertheless, as you make these changes, do not let self-doubt take over your mind. Those moments may make you believe that you are idle but these connections and sense of community will sustain and prove to you that you can achieve anything you have pursued thus far. 

  • Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

There will always be periods of time where you must rely on your fight or flight reflexes, and you usually have the instinctive sense to know what you would need to successfully get through your issue. However, you will have some problems you cannot simply will your way through. When you find yourself in a slump then the only thing you can do is adapt to the world around you. This can look like participating more in the things that you enjoy or just simply putting time aside for yourself to get some rest. This period in time is not for anybody else, you do not need anyone but yourself to come to save you right now, this movement in time is all about trusting yourself to adapt to the ups and downs of life. 

  • Leo (July 23 – August 22)

I know some days it feels like you just barely have enough energy to get through the day and hold up all the responsibilities given to you on a daily basis. When things are reaching their peak, remember to step back from the situation and think with an objective lens. With this in mind, try not to be so hard on yourself. You are learning who you are while also growing into the person that you are destined to be and that takes time and, unfortunately, the process to getting to this person is not always going to be easy, perfect or even aesthetically pleasing, but that does not mean you are going backward by any means. It just means you are changing, for the better (or for worse), now that is completely up to you. 

  • Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Trying to figure out who it is in your life that you can count on is not as easy as others would lead you to believe. Remember that not everyone is perfect, or sees the world the exact way that you do, or even shows up for you in the ways that you exactly need. Not realizing this might make you wonder if it would just be easier for you to just give up and rely solely on yourself. But for this week, try to focus on building trust with others that you truly think deserve it no matter the flaws that they may have to you. By doing so, you can create an environment that makes your mind and heart grow stronger. 

  • Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Through careful practice, you can allow yourself to ignore the fears about your future, loneliness or loss enough to teach yourself to sit with the terror in order to not let it destroy you or blind you to the good things that are coming your way. If you do not acknowledge and learn to move with this fear then you will find yourself actively keeping making decisions based off of it, closing you off to a world of endless possibilities. 

  • Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

It is important for you to stay true to the promises that you have made this week. However, sometimes the full weight of what you agreed to may not be completely apparent when you agree to these arrangements. So you must also remember that it is okay for you to say no. Others can take advantage of you and use your lack of boundaries as a weapon to make you stick around longer than you should while also not respecting you as a person in the midst of it. So, remember that you are allowed to turn your back and retract any oaths that you have made in the past if that is what is the best for you. 

  • Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

While others may live their life in a specific way that works for them, it does not mean you have to live yours in the same way. It’s okay to not know what it is that you exactly want in the years ahead or in a couple of days. You are allowed to leave some parts of your life up to fate. However, you must not let others make the big decisions for you. You may allow them to state their opinions and take them under consideration but when it comes to the point in time where you have to make the final decision, choose whatever path would be best for you. 

  • Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Sometimes you may find yourself in the unfair position of seeing people that should be ashamed of their behavior not doing so or at least it appears that way to you. There is some small part of you that wants to create some kind of punishment for them by holding on to anger towards them on your end. Remember that burning yourself will not make the other person feel the pain. It is not your job to carry the burdens the person places on themselves, and it won’t help anyone (especially yourself) to be put in the position of hurting yourself in any way. You are too good of a person for that, focus on taking care of yourself instead, you deserve it.
