ARIES 3/21 – 4/19

This week, with Mercury finally out of retrograde, you’ll be surprised to find just how easy it is to finally move forward. Don’t spend too long looking at old photographs, or reading last month’s journal entries. Don’t let yourself be pulled back into what you were. Collect the pieces of you that still serve you, and carry only those through this waning Autumn.

TAURUS 4/20 – 5/20

As the impulse for hibernation grows, remember to say thank you to the spaces that hold you. Take the time to thank your roommates, and your kitchen, and every inch of your body for working so hard to help you. Try to tell the important people in your life exactly how special they are, fail to find the words, and try again.

GEMINI 5/21 – 6/20

This week is about balance, and you’re a tightrope walker. In the coming days, it will serve you to be organized. Elements of your life may feel like they’re pulling you off center, tipping you in different directions. Know that you are capable. Know that you are ready. You’re walking on a thin, high wire, but you’re not going to fall.

CANCER 6/21 – 7/22

All of you have to do this week is keep your eyes open. Someone has been noticing you and is waiting to see if you’ve noticed them back. Have you? Don’t be shy, Cancer. It’s not every day that the world seems to be brimming with cuties; today may be the one day that it does. Trust that you are worthy of great love because you are.

LEO 7/23 – 8/22

You may crave solitude this week. Not because you need time to reflect, but because people in your life may feel exhausting in their instability. Don’t let yourself be drawn into the interpersonal violence that may surround you. Remember what is your job and remember what is not. Take a hot bath and retreat. Let your warm tender heart stay warm and tender.

VIRGO 8/23 – 9/22

Roll up your sleeves, Virgo. The discipline and focus you’ve been craving is here. You are a scholar and a maker. The art you are making does not want to and cannot wait for steadier hands. Trust your hands in all their movement. Trust your analysis of difficult texts, your mercurial intuitions. Don’t let yourself hold yourself to any standard lower than your best, you and your work are too important.LIBRA 9/23 – 10/22

Summer in all its stagnant heat wasn’t good for you, Libra. Now, as the winter falls, experiment with what defines you. Believe the opposite of what you believe for a day. Let change become you. We feel, so often, as if only events or people can catalyze our growth. Let everything trigger a newness in you, if only for a week.

SCORPIO 10/23 – 11/21

In your effort to rediscover the pleasures of life, you may have overdone it. How many cups of coffee do you want to be drinking? How many cigarettes do you want to smoke? This is not to turn your joys into vices, but rather to take a moment to reflect on what best serves you, and what role gratification plays in your well being.

SAGITTARIUS 11/22 – 12/21

Time will feel strange for you this week. Things that usually flood will ooze and drip, pouring over everything with a slower and warmer light than you’re used to. Take this change of pace for all it’s worth: notice the way gestures and comments hang in the air a moment before they fall. Notice with a sharper lens how you interact with space, and all the people that fill it.

CAPRICORN 12/22 – 1/19

This week you are a knife, or a diamond, or a perfectly smoothed orb. All of you is aligned in your truth and no one will be able to break your determination. Feel secure in that—allow yourself some flexibility and compassion for the people in your life that sometimes disagree with you. No one can change your mind without your consent.

AQAURIUS 1/20 – 2/18

Hold tight to your wallet, Aquarius! You may find yourself losing money in the most ridiculous ways this week. Check your pockets for holes, or think twice before going out for every meal. Sometimes it’s important to remember that money is only printed paper, but it’s also important to save your hard earned cash for the things you find truly important.

PISCES 2/19 – 3/20

You know that feeling when you suddenly realize that you haven’t spoken to anybody in three days? I thought so. Remember, Pisces, while you may be an intellectual, or a mystic, you are still a social animal that needs love and warmth. Don’t starve yourself of all the interpersonal nutrients that keep you rooted. Take this week to talk with your friends and develop your understanding of community.
