Week of October 4

By April Davidson

ARIES 3/21 – 4/19

You’ve got ecstatic energy all around you. Moving fast is something you can’t help most of the time but moving forward too quickly could give you motion sickness right now. There will be a moment, either now or in the next two weeks, when you get a surprise message or a final piece of information that ties everything together. Coincidences and synchronicities are anything but. The significance of what crosses your path are crucial to maintaining your flow. Stay present and watch for clues.

TAURUS 4/20 – 5/20

There’s been some conflict and it’s important for you to admit that instead of presuming everything is fine and moving on. Acknowledging an external reality is one thing but recognizing how the issues you’re facing have their origin from a private, internal, or psychic place is another. Take some alone time to re-establish your values and heal. Your responsibility over the next two weeks is to be very kind and gentle to yourself.

GEMINI 5/21 – 6/20

Focusing on your own rules or version of the truth will only isolate you further. If you want the assurance of your greatness, power, and the validation of your peers then you must be open to exploring the shadows. You may now just be realizing how the role you play in others’ lives has a direct impact on your overall happiness or state of being. You will be called on to help a friend in crisis, or some other humanitarian effort. Trust in what can’t be seen, in the spiritual and intangible.

CANCER 6/21 – 7/22

A breakthrough. A sudden change that you may or may not be ready for. If you have been in a state of isolation that is about to end. You’ll be pushed into the public eye and experience a humbling, but do whatever you can to keep your cool and display your competence. This time is not about other people, it’s about you and there won’t be a moment to reflect on all the transformation. Your authentic self is all you need to show up with grace.

LEO 7/23 – 8/22

You’ve been processing things in a logical way. You want to know what’s right and wrong but there’s a lot of doubt and something feels like it’s missing. What do you believe in that can help you keep from succumbing to negative thinking? You’re doing your best and the only way through will be to have faith and definitely way more fun. To cut through confusion with ease, concentrate on your own feelings; go inwards and figure out your desires for peace and courage.

VIRGO 8/23 – 9/22

Feeling rejected, ostracized or insecure? You could spend this time reassessing what your course of action has been in your relationships and consider a change or a different strategy. Your downfall has been in the aggressive veracity of your convictions and in defiantly holding your position against all criticism. The way out of this pit is to invent your own thrills and be your own inspiration. Find your calm center and then share your light freely.

LIBRA 9/23 – 10/22

You have a vision and a strong foundation from which to build. For the most part you are stable because you understand material concerns easily. Knowing how things ought to be is a useful quality but when chaos arrives, and it always does, so does your guilt and doubt in yourself. Understand that arrangements will collapse but that doesn’t mean the whole project or partnership should be scrapped. A temporary inability to execute your will is a good time to stop and savor your blessings and achievements.

SCORPIO 10/23 – 11/21

Although you are most likely a master of your domain, soon there will be a surge of emotional energy that will make it more difficult to complete your duties. Right now would be an excellent time to ask yourself if you have any habits that inhibit you from doing your best work. Are there any addictions or biases that weaken your personal control? Renewing your commitment to your health will increase your ability to pursue your master plan.

SAGITTARIUS 11/22 – 12/21

The stars are giving you full permission to cut loose from your responsibilities and pursue an amount of fun that will replenish your fortitude and return you to your true self. While it might not seem like there is enough hours in the week, if you don’t take time for laughter and play you won’t have the energy for your obligations. Grab your friends, seize the moment and defiantly snatch opportunities to get your kicks.

CAPRICORN 12/22 – 1/19

You’ve been hard at work on your career and public life but right now you need to focus on your home and family life. Being trustworthy and practical is easy for you but allowing yourself to be vulnerable and open is something you could work on. Now is a very opportune time to strike a balance between these two areas. If you’re worried about being able to maintain your position on your path, know that the trail you’re blazing can’t be stolen out from under you but your emotional center will atrophy if you don’t cherish and tend to it.

AQUARIUS 1/20 – 2/18

Seems like you’re feeling a bit restricted, confused or overwhelmed. You have everything you need and then some and that’s exactly the problem. Your growth and expansion has distracted you from your normal routines and now everything is confusing. The only way through is to keep going. You will feel powerless at times but trust that you have the stamina, compassion, and originality to pull this off.

PISCES 2/19 – 3/20

You’ve got a singular mind for your meeting the emotional and material needs of others. You flow, you adapt quickly and you even have fun with it. Being involved and sharing experiences brings you a lot of pleasure but your personal projects are lacking because of this. You’re due for a creative transformation. Your next big love will come from what you already possess, a deep well of intuition that can wash away lies and doubts, and it will be all yours.
