April 20-May 20

This is a powerful time to learn from the conditions that throw you off balance, Taurus. When you give authority over your self-esteem to others it’s easy to lose track of yourself without even realizing it. Reconnect (or connect for the first time!) with who you are and with your big picture goals. You have the capacity to make meaningful changes that improve the quality and direction of your life this week. Don’t waste it by obsessing about what other people think.

May 21-June 21

Be careful and don’t act too impulsively this week, Twin Star. You may find that you’ve stumbled upon some inspiration or an answer to a problem that’s been evading you. That being said, it would be wise to deploy some strategy before you accidentally trigger a trip wire. Your perspectives and experience are valid and important, but so are those of others. Don’t assume that we all have the same lens or the same goals. Listen to yourself, but not at the expense of others, my love.

June 22-July 22

This week is an excellent time to lay down some roots, Moonchild. It’s also a good time to consider your ability to get grounded without getting attached. Experiment with different ways of becoming present and investing in things that make the world and your life better without controlling the way they “should” look. Think of life as a partnered dance: You make your moves, but they don’t exist in isolation. Vision, playfulness and adaptability will take you far, my love.

July 23-Aug. 22

As you outgrow parts of yourself, it’s inevitable that you will also outgrow places, people and beliefs. While you may be expanding in the most beautiful of ways, it doesn’t mean that your connections or the world that you’ve built up around yourself is flexible enough to grow with you. Instead of desperately holding on to what once worked, cultivate curiosity about what you’re being shown in the here and now. Your life is giving you data and you get to decide what to do with it, Leo.

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

There are some pretty deep patterns running through your life around how you cope with difficult emotions. Consider how you do or don’t stay present in the face of overwhelming feelings and anxiety. Instead of reacting defensively, this is a good time to consider your needs and what actions will best suit them, instead of simply how to get away from bad feelings. The worst thing that you could do is abandon yourself when you need you the most. Be a good friend to yourself this week, Virgo.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

As the saying goes, even freedom isn’t free. There’s no perfect point in life where having something you love means that you don’t have something that you’re scared to lose. This week may find you struggling to be present with the good in your life, as you may be fixated on what could go wrong, instead of what feels right, right now. The best way to protect your future lives in the present. Strive to be brave enough to confront your fears, Libra.

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

To quote hair band Guns N' Roses, “all you need is a little patience,” Scorpio. Things may not be exactly where you want them to be, but that doesn’t mean that they’re bad or going in the wrong direction. Do your best to avoid obsessive thinking, especially about the things you fear, or by reliving upsets in the past. Your life is changing in unknown ways and along with it your relationships are inevitably going to change. Remember to check in with yourself so you can use your instincts and wisdom. Take it slow and steady this week.

Nov. 22-Dec. 21

The good news is that you have been putting into place much of what you have learned, and it’s working, Sagittarius. You are still very much going through a transformation but there’s nothing that you need to do that you’re not already doing. Be open to more ways that allow you to put into practice what you know. This is an important time to listen to your inner voice and to allow lessons of the past to guide you. You don’t need to get it perfect—you only need to do your level best.

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Whether you’re taking things slow and steady or feel ready to make some bold moves, this isn’t the time to look outside of yourself for answers. Your intuition is likely to be loud enough, but your ability to trust it may not be equal. Maturity is only applied wisdom. You’ve been working hard for a long time now. Strive to have your actions reflect that effort, even if you aren’t sure of what will come of it, Capricorn.

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

The changes that you’re going through are deep and will impact you for a long time to come. With Saturn in your sign, you’re learning a great deal about yourself and that’s not always easy to do. As you mature and grow you will have choices to make. What is it that you care about most? What’s most important to you? Where is most of your time and energy going? As you become present with reality as you see it, you can take steps to have your actions line up with what means the most to you. You don’t need to be perfect, just keep trying, Aquarius.

Feb. 19-March 20

The ways in which you respond to frustration will have a defining impact upon you this week. When things get overwhelming or chaotic it’s easy to react without forethought or shut down completely, but neither of these reactions are especially helpful. Do your best to get grounded in the face of self-imposed urgency. Your worst-case scenarios may not be in anyone’s head but your own. Be on the lookout for catastrophizing thoughts and other forms of self-sabotage that may have made it into your blind spot, Pisces.

March 21-April 19

Cultivate diplomacy this week, Aries. What feels like the slow way may actually be the quickest path forward. If you assert yourself, guns blazing, you’re likely to kick up opposition that ultimately derails you and messes with your progress. You don’t need to water down your goals or your will, but if you take pains to put one foot in front of the other, you’ll be better equipped to take in the lay of the land and sidestep any dangers. Leave room for collaboration, the unknown, and for time to change and improve your vision.
