Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Inevitably, there will be times when you do what’s right for you and it really doesn’t work for others. Sometimes calling things right or wrong is too simple of an evaluation—what’s right for you may be wrong for someone else. This week you may find yourself having to deal with the consequences of your actions. While this may not be easy or pleasant, it’s also not inherently an indication of the value of your actions. Be here for complicated nuance this week, Sagittarius.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Thinking of the worst and thinking you’re the best are kind of the same problem; they are thinking too much about yourself as the centre of things. Adopt some healthy boundaries with your biggest fears and your greatest aspirations, Capricorn. Being able to hold these things lightly will enable you to have a healthy perspective and engage with them in sustainable and practical ways.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

On the 22nd there will be a full moon in your sign and it’s meant to confront you with some emotions that you may rather avoid. Instead of indulging your strongest reactions, investigate what’s underneath them. Don’t act out when what you really need to do is check in with yourself. Change or be changed; this is meant to inspire one or the other. Don’t allow your fears or insecurities to make the call for you, my love.

Things are not always as they seem, Pisces. This week the situation to find yourself is important, but perhaps more importantly, this reflects deeper patterns that need addressing. By considering your own history, you can most gracefully find the best way to engage with and mobilize around whatever it is that you’re struggling with. You’re likely to need to let go a little and hold on a little, but what that means is up to you.

“What you resist shall persist.” When you are doing the right thing, going in the right direction and equipped with the right motivations, things can still go sideways on you. Instead of making assumptions about what your frustrations or setbacks mean, take the time to investigate them, Aries. It may be tempting this week to fixate on your disappointments but it would be a wasted opportunity.

It’s boundary time, twin star. If you’ve been running yourself ragged or burning your candle at both ends of the wick, this week it’s time for you to identify your needs and limits, express them to others and then follow through. What you do is really important at this time. As a Gemini, you can get distracted by different ideas and potential pathways, but this is the time for focused self-care. Think of it as the foundation for future adventures.

June 22-July 22

This week is likely to find you inspired or ready to mobilize on an idea that you feel really good about.

Consider the long-term implications of your actions on your personal connections. You’ll ultimately save time and energy if you move slowly enough to include others in your vision.
