Aug. 23-Sept. 22

The way you engage with frustrations is massively important this week, Virgo. Perfection is a terrible goal. What is ideal is to be able to find peace with wherever you’re at, even when you’re perfectly clear that where you’re at is not where you want to be. There’s always an opportunity, but you need to be willing to see it and then, of course, make use of it. What you’re going through now is part of a much larger growth cycle. Approach it with intention and care, my friend.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

This may be one of those times where the best thing that you can do for yourself is going to upset someone else. Inevitably in life there is the pain of healing, and the pain of breaking. While the pain of healing is a lot healthier to go through, it can sometimes be more painful than the pain of falling apart. This isn’t the time to avoid walking through fire if it brings you closer to a self you want to be in a life you want to live. Be brave, Libra.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

It’s important that you get a hold of your mental anxiety or you may find that you create the very problems you’re trying to avoid. The past is behind you and the future is unknowable; all you have is the present moment and how you orient yourself in response to it. Centre simplicity in your approach to your biggest stresses and most daunting situations this week, Scorpio.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

While it’s always wise to take in the opinions of those you trust, in the end it’s down to you to decide what you will do in this life. Slow down enough to nurture yourself through the decisions you need to make this week. You are changing and it’s inevitable for that to create some bumpy driving conditions for you. Navigate this to the best of your ability with care and consideration for both yourself and others. You don’t need to get there quick, just get there honestly.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

The truth is the truth whether you want to accept it or deal with it. You’re likely to feel blocked or stalled this week, and while that’s likely to feel pretty frustrating, there’s a higher purpose to it. Check in with yourself to make sure that your attitudes and plans are aligned with your reality as it is in the here and now. In a life well lived, change is inevitable. Strive to be true to yourself, even when you’re making compromises, Capricorn.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

You may find yourself feeling really anxious or easily distracted this week and that’s no fun. Instead of seeking an answer or a fix, strive to restore your vitality, Aquarius. You’ve been running on empty for some time and it’s OK to need a break. Prioritize doing things that are life affirming and energizing, no matter how small or silly they are. Come back to yourself, my love.

Feb. 19-March 20

It’s OK to be uncertain about how things will go; just make sure that you feel good about your own participation. Growing pains are really uncomfortable, even when what you’re growing into is the Pisces of your dreams. Don’t allow other people’s discomfort or judgments define you. It’s time for you to let go of your attachment to seeking external validation when what you truly need is self-acceptance. Adopt a pace that you can sustain as you mobilize your goals and dreams, Pisces.

March 21-April 19

While you are capable of moving forward and quickly, to do so you may have to leave someone behind. Is it worth it, Aries? It may feel more stressful or risky to take your time, but this is a powerful way to check in with what is underlying your emotions. Stay present with what you’re uncomfortable with so you can understand why. True success happens in collaboration with others in the general flow of your life.

April 20-May 20

While perfection, in the conventional sense of the word, is not attainable most of the time and in most situations, strive to see the perfection in even the most flawed circumstances. You don’t need to go over things with a fine-tooth comb; as long as you can find meaning in the big picture, you can find purpose. Align yourself with that, and allow your values to drive you and you’ll be more than fine, Taurus.

May 21-June 21

Whether it’s too big or too small, if your ego is out of alignment, it will steer you in the wrong direction. It’s time to bolster your sense of self and make some bold moves, twin star. Check your motives before you go on a wrecking spree, though! Consider your big picture potential, and whatever situations you find yourself in. Prioritize not just where you want to be in the next couple weeks, but in the longer-term too, my impulsive friend.

June 22-July 22

It may be hard to trust your feelings this week as your mind is looking a little scattered. Take the time to clarify your motivations before you make any meaningful decisions or especially change course in any kind of way. This is a period when defensiveness can get in your way, so don’t shy away from the vulnerability of sitting with yourself before you make any moves, moonchild.

July 23-Aug. 22

Your relationships need you, Leo. While you may have the impulse to react fiercely to your feelings, that’s not likely to help your connections with others much. As uncomfortable as it may be, take the space and time that you need to get grounded, and check in with your own patterns and the ways in which you may be perpetuating them or, better yet, breaking them. The foundations that you wish to build can build a beautiful life.
