July 23-Aug. 22

When you set boundaries, especially in emotionally charged situations, there’s generally going to be a period of time when it’s not clear what will come of it. This week it’s important that you leave space for others to react however they will without trying to rush or force the situation. All you can really do is be clear about your needs and limits, communicate your boundaries and then follow through. It's important that you leave room for others' processes to be different than your own, Leo.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Fear and negativity can be contagious. While it’s wise to explore your concerns, there’s a line—however fine it may be!—between fixation and finding fixes. This week, seek to get grounded before you get going. You’re in a state of emotional exhaustion that is likely to lead you down a path of assumptions and assessments that match your feelings and not the facts. Take your time so you can move forward without your baggage, Virgo.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Don’t try to control outcomes in your efforts to create progress in your personal life, Libra. This week you’re likely to have to manage some fine lines. If you are passive in the face of your desires you won’t get what you want, but if you try to strong arm or rush others you will kick up their defences and set yourself back. Assert yourself without attachment; strive to work on yourself while you wait for matters to develop and people to show up however they can.

Oct. 23-Nov. 21

You're at the end of a cycle that feels pretty awful, but you’re not out of it completely yet. This week is likely to confront you with very out of control feelings that inspire you to assume the worst. Take authority over your mind, dear Scorpio. If you find yourself obsessing over an idea or a feeling, redirect yourself with either a positive thought or mantra, or a neutral one. Also, receive the support you have and let people love and care for you, even if it feels vulnerable.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

If fear played no role in your decisions, what would you be doing differently? This week is a powerful time for you to explore your options, broaden your perspective, and even take some calculated risks. The key is to only bite off as much as you can check at a time; in other words, only risk what you can afford to lose. For best results, find ways of approaching your ambitions one step at a time, instead of all in, all at once, Sagittarius.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

You’re not always meant to do something, Capricorn. This week is likely to confront you with a sense of exhaustion and also helplessness—not a winning combination, I’m afraid. Instead of assuming the worst, take this moment of impasse as an opportunity for pause and reflection. Explore what you want, what you fear, what’s happening and what you have actually been doing. In other words, get present, get real and then you’ll be ready to get moving.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

When you feel overwhelmed and like the only thing to do is fight for your position, that’s exactly when you need to hang back this week. Your personal life needs your more thoughtful and tender self, Aquarius. Instead of bringing everything to everything, be here now and sit with what this moment is asking from you. Inner balance is not a destination—it’s an approach. It takes flexibility, presence and the willingness to adjust without attachment.

Feb. 19-March 20

You deserve to love your life. You deserve to enjoy spending time alone with yourself and you deserve relationships that allow you to be you. The trick is to make choices that align you with the person you are, and not who you think you “should” be, or who others tell you to be. It’s time to get right with yourself, even if that means upsetting the applecart. Get present, get honest and then get into the transformations that you’ve been resisting, Pisces.

March 21-April 19

This is a great week for analytic investigation. Explore your past: the attitudes you held, the words you spoke, the actions you took—and how they all contributed to get you here. This isn’t about blame or pride, it’s about finding the truth so that you can use it as a guide to strategize for your future. What you’re going through now is directly connected to the start of 2020. Understand the big picture and you'll be able to make decisions that serve it, Aries.

April 20-May 20

When things aren’t as you wish they were is when it’s easiest to devolve into fear-based thinking and assume the worst. Don’t seek the best thing—seek the next best thing until you can seek the next best thing after that. You don’t need to have it all figured out, but it’s wise for you to start trying to make sense of where you’re at so you can determine how to get where you’re called to go next. Start by putting one foot in front of the other this week, Taurus.

May 21-June 21

This is a terrible time to take on others’ feelings or issues, Twin Star. There is so much that is unknown and that can leave too much room for negative assumptions and worry to take hold. Cultivate faith this week; faith in your inner resources and your ability to use them when needed. Stop trying to prove yourself and start owning what you’ve got so that you can actually make use of it. Move beyond the superficial so you can focus on what counts, my easily distracted friend.

June 22-July 22

Your relationships need some space to gestate, Moonchild. This isn’t the time to rush yourself or others to find an answer that just isn’t there yet; get comfortable in the discomfort of not knowing where to go, or when you’ll feel more secure. You’re not in a race and you have nothing to prove. Take the time you need to tend to yourself and your relationships without forcing anything. You’re ready to be the very change you need in your life, my love.
