ARIES (March 21-April 19)


This may not be the most successful week to directly express your frustrations, Aries, should you find yourself blocked in your ascent by an inept boss, a stubborn family-member, an intolerant power-tripper, and/or a corrupt system… not if you'll still have to participate in a functioning relationship with them for some time to come. Your exasperation, critique, or offense may indeed be totally justified, but that's not enough to deem any head-on showdown a shrewd move at the moment. 


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)


The appeal of some low-key, unassuming social time with your nearby chums, neighborly mates, or other local-color characters is an increasingly strong one for you, Taurus, especially in light of that personal hustle you're (hopefully) tirelessly working, in support of your own financial welfare. 


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)


Plan on a lot of juggling, Gemini, in order to productively push your agenda along, while simultaneously confronting whatever interpersonal challenges or complications must be dealt with… in the process of being at once (1) autonomously self-serving and (2) respectful to considerations or limitations placed on the situation by a partner or critical player. 


CANCER (June 21-July 22)


Even with Venus confidently on your side—or perhaps because Venus is confidently on your side, Cancer—you are under an exaggerated threat of attracting attention, admiration, and/or affection from those who might also too emphatically or persistently expect something from you, in gracious return for receiving their good graces. 


LEO (July 23-August 22)


Please don't jump the gun, Leo, and prematurely commit to joining up with whatever exciting activities, initiatives, or adventures are presently being dangled in your face by friends, peers, or comrades … particularly if the urge to do so is also related to an (unconscious? semi-conscious? totally consciously willful?) desire to ditch out on some dull or dreary day-to-day rhythm. First off, what your rebel-side might be brattily labeling 'dull' or 'dreary', I'd probably instead call dutiful or diligent. 


VIRGO (August 23-September 22)


A main reason it's so critical for you to leave your methodological options open, to simultaneously pursue multiple leadership tactics, and/or to be willing to engage in ongoing conversations which just might change your mind about a key tenet of your professional approach, Virgo, is to thwart yourself from impetuously forfeiting certain stylistic aspects or fundamentals of your aspirations which may be quite important to you. heedlessly eschewing your own. Spend the extra time and effort to find ways to satisfy your own desires at the same time you 'do a good job'. 


LIBRA (September 23-October 22)


You probably shouldn't proceed as if everything's about 'principle', Libra, and somehow, therefore, not about your personal stake. If you're being totally honest and forthright about your subject-position with regards to the path(s) now opening up for you, you cannot legitimately claim any sort of austere detachment from the specific emotional rewards you are seeking to reap, as if all of this is merely about you doing the fair and proper thing. 


SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)


Please feel free to continue flipping through the disjointed specifics of your various psychological attitudes, responses, and relationships to what's currently going on, Scorpio, as if they were to comprise a scrapbook commemorating the flavor of this phase in your history. These feeling-fragments are like precious souvenirs, representing, to the best of their ability, this moment in your emotional development. 


SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)


When it comes to any intricate situation where your destiny is interwoven with someone else's, Sagittarius, it behooves you to continue leaving your options open—but only to a certain point. As I mentioned a couple weeks back, Mercury's now retrograde in your relationship house (the 7th), which is only one of multiple astro-influences indicating the present need for relative versatility in how you're attempting to juggle your interests with theirs… 


CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)


Though Venus-in-your-7th is presently making it rather easy to lean into behaviors which will keep your other-half, best-friend, and/or partner-in-crime pretty happy, there's something about those go-with-the-flow expectations which come along with it that just doesn't sit well with you, Capricorn.


AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)


It's common astrological knowledge that you Aquarians typically prefer to exist in the spacious and stimulating wonderland of your brilliant brain-ball… while finding the physically restrictive inconveniences of living in a body to be a real drag, more often than not. 


PISCES (February 19-March 20)

Feelings, though important, aren't the only factor to take into account, Pisces… especially if they start spinning themselves into some tall tale, which might seek to cohere into a case for why you should cop out, cut it short, or quit bothering. What you're striving to accomplish is not easy. It requires ongoing commitment.
