Week of July 15th

The Other challenges you this week. Tuesday’s eclipse brings your fears out from the underworld and requires you to confront them. What scares you about other people? What parts of yourself have you Othered? There is some piece of yourself that has been sent away, made to hide in the shadows while you presented more “acceptable” parts of yourself to friends and partners. This is most likely the piece of the puzzle that will help you solve a relationship quandary. Accept this darker, weirder, less comfortable part of yourself. Self-love remains one of the keys to eclipse season for you. You are healing a lot of past pain right now. Travel, learning, or spirituality may aid you in this endeavor. Recognize how much you’ve grown since the last time you encountered this cycle, 19 years ago.

Week of July 8th

You have an ambition to accumulate things of value. Your love of security means that you would be very happy to keep a little hoard of gold at home, even if it’s just an emergency fund. In any case, you’re worth your weight in gold, and you are reminded of that on Monday. Recover some of your old pride this week. The effects of last week’s eclipse continue to reverberate, particularly in your career and your relationships. Continue to practice authenticity, even when other people make it challenging. Look at those challenges as a reflection of yourself. Where are you limiting yourself? How might you be projecting your own shadow onto others? It’s time to see the truth in relationships and let go of any fears that are keeping you stuck in old patterns.

Week of July 1st

The cocoon period ends this week. Mars’ move into Leo on Monday reminds you of your true worth, and you are compelled to confidently express your values. Then, on Tuesday, the total solar eclipse in your sign rocks the boat. You’ve already been engaging with the challenging side of relationships. Roll up your sleeves and continue to do the messy work of relating while human. This eclipse is part of an ongoing cycle of change and decision-making about who you are, and consequently how you relate to others. How is your shadow side influencing your emotional reactions? Where does it hurt to be authentic? On Wednesday, Venus enters this territory by moving into your sign, giving you some self-love medicine and additional support in relationships. When Mercury stations retrograde on Sunday, it’s time to reflect more on that self-love. Recover your pride in your own talents. If you have temporarily lost touch with what you value, return to your original ambitions.

Week of June 24th

Your dreams this week herald the changes to come. This is a kind of cocoon stage; you await something that you might not yet be able to identify. Just absorb all of the information right now, and take notes. Reading, writing, and classes of any kind will help you sort this out. When Mercury moves into Leo on Wednesday, you get a boost to your sense of self-worth. Creative talents ought to be shown off, and commercial activity is likely to go your way. Be authentic even when it feels most vulnerable, and you will be rewarded by attracting more people who are absolutely here for it. You get a little break this week from some of the relationship angst. Use it.

Week of June 17th

Small blessings bring large rewards with this full moon. Focus on the beauty of the details. Look to daily rituals for the expansion you seek. Relationships are still very stormy for you. How difficult for someone who prefers to stay safe at home, caring for others and keeping the peace! Right now, though, keeping the peace requires you to be assertive. Practice expressing exactly what you need to say, in the wisest words possible. Truly empowered people do not need to exert power over others. Your intuition will guide you to set healthy boundaries. Protect yourself and be willing to let others make their own choices. This is growth.

Week of June 10th

Adaptation may not be your most natural strategy, but it would be very useful right about now. As you bury your nose deeper into your books, seeking knowledge, you’re finding more questions than answers. Sit with the questions. Push the boundaries of your discomfort. This is the edge of growth. The astrology of late requires that you not retreat to the comforts of your shell, much as you would like to. If relationships are difficult, take the high road. It will be wise to keep your own counsel about some things. Gather calm so you can work out practical solutions in regards to others.

Week of June 3rd

Beginnings happen in the darkness. Something is shifting for you, but its shape may not become clear until July. This new moon inspires quiet revelations for you. Communication is likely to come through your imagination, through synchronicity or spiritual means, or through dreams. Mercury’s move into your sign on Tuesday may coincide with an increased ability to communicate what you’ve been privately intuiting. Remember that some secrets are best left alone for now, because this is a time to let your new ideas gestate. With Mars in your sign and a heady eclipse season on its way, you must distinguish the right times to speak, and then use your words thoughtfully. Intuition is your gift and your guide.

Week of May 27th

This is a week for sorting intuitive knowledge from philosophical knowledge. Both are useful. It’s a matter of understanding what is being communicated to you, and figuring out which messages to follow at what time. You can tap into this kind of knowledge through complex ceremonial rituals or simple walks in nature, through book learning or in the school of life. Consider what you believe at this point, but keep an open mind. If you are still having difficulty in relationships, draw on the resources of your community. Who can help you out? How can you work with others and bring your wisdom to the practical details of this situation?

Week of May 20th

An unfortunate side effect of practicing authenticity and rewilding your networks of human connection is the negative reaction from that one friend. People have difficulty with change. This week, if someone is trying to pull you back into a dynamic that has traditionally been stifling for you, don’t go. Check in with yourself and your needs. A disagreement doesn’t usually mean that a relationship needs to be ‘canceled’. It is often possible to renegotiate the terms of a friendship/partnership so that you can maintain a longstanding connection and keep your selfhood intact. Mercury cazimi in Gemini is likely to give you a direct download of information that could help you, so stay tuned in to dreams and synchronicity.

Week of May 13th

Abundance comes to you through other people this week. Continue to make social connections and nurture friendships. The others are finding you now! Share what you’ve created. This means you will need to engage with the ongoing image shift that affects your primary relationships too. Manage friends’ expectations without crawling back into your shell, tempting as that option may seem. With Mars in your sign, you can protect yourself and still show up. Saturday’s full moon invites you to fully express yourself, unfiltered.

Week of May 6th

You’re rewilding your communal connections. This week, make time for social activities. Continue to shine your authentic light, no matter how weird. In fact, the weirder, the better. People are responding to it. You want to find the people who respond with wild enthusiasm. This means that you’re transforming your friendships and partnerships, and it might take time for some people in your life to get used to this new public persona. That’s ok. Just find the others.

Week of April 29th

You’ve been practicing self-acceptance and authenticity in public for the past few weeks. This new moon represents a cycle of finding belonging with your community. If you’ve been embracing your truth and putting yourself out there, you may start to attract people who get what you’re doing. Still looking for the people who will accept you? Make a wish at the new moon. And remember that practicing self-love and self-acceptance in your daily life will always be the first step.

Week of April 22nd

Themes of self-acceptance and belonging continue to play out this week. As you cultivate the courage to present yourself authentically in public, and as you seek out ever-wilder communities, you will probably experience rejection. It’s painful and, understandably, it makes you want to crawl back into your shell. But don’t hide in there forever. This is the time to face the fear of being visible. If you want to find the people you belong with, you will need to let them see you first.

Week of April 15th

You are called to be at your most fully, publicly authentic this week. Self-acceptance is key. You won’t feel like you belong until you accept who you really are. Address the wound of identity. You are in a cycle of relationship growth, but this week, it’s about focusing on yourself and what you want. How do you want the world to see you? What do you want people to know? Approval-seeking behavior is canceled; unabashed realness is in. Friday’s full moon in Libra speaks of growing from your roots and addressing ancestral issues that might hinder you from full self-love.

Week of April 8th

The destination shimmers in the distance, but how will you get there? The way is still unclear. Until a bend in the path reveals itself to you, continue to travel in the direction of your dreams by putting one foot in front of the other. You have some luck in mundane matters with Jupiter in Sagittarius this year: your health is protected, you have opportunities at work, and perhaps more freedom in your daily schedule. Continue to spend time on the activities that contribute to your overall goal. Friday’s quarter moon in your sign signals change.

Week of April 1st

Travels and studies may be confusing this week, with Mercury conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Knowing that the way forward is still foggy, avoid making any major decisions about which path you will take next. Allow events to take their course. The next destination may become more clear over the next few weeks. Instead of making decisions, meditate on where you might like to go. Friday’s new moon represents another cycle of beginning in the season of spring. For you, this is an opportunity to reexamine the legacy you want to leave and set intentions to refresh your career. The challenge is getting on the same page with a partner about this. Examine any fear you have about working with other people to make this happen.

Week of March 25th

Venus moves into Pisces on Tuesday, lighting your path forward with an irresistible aura of glamour. Something about your journey becomes even more enticing over the course of the next few weeks. Be wary of traveling too quickly though, with Mercury retrograde for most of the week, right next to Neptune. The path forward may seem glamorous, but it’s also quite hazy, perhaps even deceptive. If you’re not careful, you could find you’ve been going in circles. Mercury stations direct on Thursday, at which point the haze begins to clear up gradually. Consult the wisdom of a trusty guide and wait at least a couple of weeks before choosing the road less traveled. On Sunday, Mars into Gemini ignites further interest in spiritual matters.

Week of March 18th

You are a sensitive darling in a society that views your gifts as a weakness. This is a false understanding of power. Your sensitivity, your intuition, your caring, your tears and your softness: these are all strengths. Remind yourself of this. Then, show others how tenderness can be strong. It’s a brave person who can be this vulnerable in public. This week, the Spring Equinox full moon coincides with the beginnings of a new image, one that is courageously true to who you are. Relate to your roots and beautify your home so that you have a sanctuary in which you can recharge. You are teaching and leading from the soul.

Week of March 11th

Co-operators are standing by to help you make your plans real. That is, once you figure out what those plans are. This Mercury retrograde is taking you on a deep journey inward. You might have been on this ride before, but this time you’re seeing everything with fresh eyes. What new-old discoveries will help you transform your partnerships as you level up in this next stage? What knowledge will help you to unlock your major potential for freedom in your daily life? Look beyond what you think you already know.

Week of March 4th

Mercury stations retrograde in your journey sector on Tuesday. Literal travel may be delayed, but metaphorical and spiritual journeys take unexpected turns. This is a fantasy-fiction transit, especially with Wednesday’s new moon. A guide takes you beneath the ocean to show you an ancient underwater kingdom. Dream and discover.

On Wednesday, Uranus in Taurus comes bearing gifts. You might have no idea what they are until they arrive, suddenly, on your doorstep. Taurus is the sign in your house of receiving, where we place our wishes and sometimes find that they come true, and where we find communities who love us for who we are. Uranus is the modern ruler of the eleventh house, but Uranus and Taurus are an interesting pairing--the planet of sudden, lightening-bolt style changes and the sign of slow, steady growth. You are the most likely candidate for a seven-year cycle of radical activism: environmental, feminist, or economic. A rebel leader re-wilding the world with fellow Uranians. If that doesn’t sound like you, you could be surprised. After all, you just spent the last seven years totally reinventing your career and public image. Did you think you would be where you are now?

Week of February 25th

The vibe between you and a significant other or dear friend has been intense lately. That could mean you’re both tense about your struggles or that you’re encountering deep transformation that is intensifying your commitment to each other. So this could go one of two ways: you need some time apart to get to know yourselves better, or you’re ready to get to know each other better than ever. When Venus moves into Aquarius on Friday, it’s time to choose just how much of yourself you’re willing to share.

Week of February 18th

Chiron’s move back into Aries on Monday is big news for you. It may feel like someone hid your armor away. Chiron can put you in situations that make you feel vulnerable, showing you where you must move through the fear to get what you want. Never forget that your vulnerability is actually a strength. It takes courage to be imperfect, to be real and emotional and still show up. This is a seven-year transit that urges you to come out of hiding. A friendship or partnership will be the first testing ground for your authenticity. You’re in for some major developments in your relationships and how you show up for other people this week. The full moon in Virgo helps with this by prompting you to speak your truth with eloquence.
