Week of September 18

By April Davidson

Aries 3/21 – 4/19

Focus on the things you do have, not on what you don’t.  Whatever you are stressing about not having enough of, whether it is some material or bodily concern, it is blocking you from seeing what you have to offer or doing the work that truly need to get done. At the core of your unease is a fear of restriction or having to depend on someone else. Please utilize some of the radical honesty you have been honing and admit to yourself when you’re pushing yourself too hard, to the point of unnecessary guilt and selfishness. What do you have a whole lot of that could do the world some good? What gifts can you honor with your grace in accepting them?

Taurus 4/20 – 5/20

You feel okay about yourself but you’re pretty confused about other people. You are very trustworthy and it explodes your reality when people don’t play safe. No one is a bigger advocate of sustainability than you but before you allow yourself to be wounded by an ending, ask yourself what exactly you were hoping to preserve. Things can and do fall apart without your management but were the recipients of your labor even worth it? Forgive them, for your own sake, or run the risk of escalating a hostile environment.

Gemini 5/21 – 6/20

The way you see the public perceiving you feels equally as terrifying and unsupportive as it does nurturing and luxurious. You want very much to lay down your responsibilities because it all feels so confusing. You don’t have to throw all your work away at all, but you might want to pause and look things over before you proceed. At your worst you use moments of disorientation to manipulate people to your own point of view, but at your best you can bring opposing perspectives together for new directions to unfold. You are temporarily out of touch with your inner strength– to get back on track, get clear on your objectives.

Cancer 6/21 – 7/22

I’m going to tell you to do something Cancers almost never do– you gotta let it go. What happened over the summer has passed and you need to release your pain around it, especially if you’re not going to speak up about the issues that you’re worried about. I don’t expect you to actually do this because you are generally terrified of quitting or experiencing change. I admire your resolve but in this particular moment you don’t have anything to fear. I would be honest with you if there were hard times ahead but there aren’t. Instead, satisfaction and opportunities for creative power are on their way.

Leo 7/23 – 8/22

Any answers you need about how to proceed are going to come from your heart and nowhere else. You are in a significant transition, do not take your choices lightly in this moment. Only you can know what your future holds. Other people will have all kinds of solutions and recommendations but you don’t need any of their advice, you only need your sense of destiny and vision. Diligence, skill and attention to detail will all be necessary but will go to waste without direction from your bright inner fire. You will honor others by first honoring yourself.

Virgo 8/23 – 9/22

Your usual sense of rules and certainty isn’t working for you right now. The powerlessness and confusion is blocking your ability to act. Coming to realize that the truths you held dear were only illusions is undeniably devastating, but the chaos you fear is fertile ground for the kind of honesty and insight that will bring you closer to your partner, your friends and your community. You can and should close yourself off if you need to, focusing on the material details directly in front of you will be soothing, but the real magic won’t happen until you allow yourself to be vulnerable with others.

Libra 9/23 – 10/22

The mental anguish you are experiencing is for nothing because you have everything you need. You can’t think your way into absolution. The decisions you are facing are illusions that stop you from moving forward but the world will go on whether you’re ready or not. There are miracles in the new structures you’re building and crafts you are learning, put down your defenses and trust that life wants you to succeed. Not everyone knows how hard you’ve worked or how far you’ve come but they are attracted to your potent and radiant joy.

Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21

As you do your regular thing, aka appearing self-reliant and disciplined as you stay suffering and strangely guilty, contemplate what it means to be materially safe. Do the needs of the many truly outweigh the needs of the few? Where do the boundaries of the self end and how much should an individual be willing to compromise for sensual fulfillment? Is there actual danger in the merging and disintegrating of borders, what is really at stake when perimeters are breached? There is no action required of you at this time other than your keen observations, but your insights could be fuel for movements in the future.

Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21

You’ve been going through a humbling yet insightful personal transformation, your regularly buoyant self-confidence has taken a hit but you’re still strong. You’re coming out of the last two years knowing yourself a lot better and this moment is when you need to use your will and sharpened identity to set renewed intentions towards your career or public identity. I think you know by now that your individual charms alone can’t get you there, there’s a lot of hard work still in front of you and your success is linked to the support from your community. You can thank them and continue to achieve with your unwavering thirst for adventure and enthusiasm for creativity and change.

Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19

You have a secret, it’s hidden just below the surface. You think you’re getting by just fine with your lone wolf tendencies but you’re tormenting yourself. Your natural inclination is to withdraw from outside involvement but you could benefit right now from dropping some of your contradictory attitudes. Long bouts of inward inquiry have developed a strong belief system which others can benefit from. You have wounds from social conditioning that said you were too domineering or unfeeling, but your powerful insights are astute to the point of psychic ability. If you’d rather keep your lessons concealed that’s okay, but your public success depends on you stepping into your destined place of authority.

Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18

Things are pretty cute for you right now but you know your own tendency to get a little cocky so you’re over-analyzing what needs to get done. Your thoughts are so powerful and can manifest many things, which is why I’m going to suggest focusing them towards nurturing your new teams and communities. Getting worked up on minutiae of your material existence is connected to your fear that life won’t support you– it will but not if you’re too focused on what you don’t have. You are more prepared than you think and this confusion will pass. Concentrate on the new friendships that could become your new family.

Pisces 2/19 – 3/20

There’s barely anyone more equipped to handle these post-truth era times than you. In fact I bet you’re actually more than a little enthusiastic that everyone else is finally acknowledging the inherent ephemerality of the material plane. You value the spiritual component of life, you are not afraid of wholeness or ego-death. You see others as being emotionally blocked and their quests for structure ultimately futile, but don’t think you can shirk your responsibilities to the real world. Now more than ever is when we need your artistic ability. It is in your best interest to stay tender and romantic, to fall in love with all that isn’t you.
