 Horoscopes

Aries or Aries Rising: March 21– April 19

In the Three Marriages, David Whyte speaks of the conversation we have between self, relationships and work. This has you in contemplation this week Aries about how to juice the joints of this triplet, opting to HAVE these conversations with an emphasis on asking your wonderful, authentic self what it is, indeed that YOU want. Don’t let that nagging voice of other’s needs circumvent the true power of your Aries desire.

 Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20

 Patti Smith was a dreamer. I mean she literally wrote about her dreams in her book, M Train. We get to take a creative ride through her dream of a cowboy. Taurus we are still analyzing your path of creativity as it applies to a dream you had of a long ago desire, perhaps even an old self. There is this glimmer of authenticity that is just starting to show through, a remembering of a self that was strong, bold, and real. What was once a dream of bold courage becomes a reality. I tell you it is hot, hot, hot. 

 Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21

 Sitting in front of me while I write to you lovely Gemini is a copy of Hemingway’s Moveable Feast. A tome written by a writer and gourmand, we are looking at the realm of feast and famine this week for you. There may be an offer from friend or even lover this week that expands your view of the possible so quickly that you swoon. Analysis will be tempting, straight up talking with friends, even more tempting, but the smell of a warm croissant on the streets of Paris somewhere might just get you to take a gigantic leap of faith. 

 Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22

 Sylvia Plath’s poem, Colossusstarts this way: I shall never get you put together entirely, pieced, glued and proper jointed. This has me thinking of the path of perfection lovely Cancerian, which has me thinking about how you begin each day. What does perfection mean to you? When can you let the sprit of the moment take you without the familiar habit of criticism? We are all pieced and glued together. Is there a way to forgive your human self this week to make room for different path?

 Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22

 I want you to consider the lighthouse this week, dearest Leo. Yep, you AS a lighthouse bringing in those that are lost and in need of light. Not only that, and to extend the metaphor, you as the housekeeper of that light, ready to offer service to the solitary souls of the world. Jeanette Winterson in her book Lighthousekeepingsays: Look at this one. Made of granite, as hard and unchanging as the sea is fluid and volatile. The sea moves constantly the lighthouse never. Learning to build your fixed self in the ever-moving sea, with an ear toward the lost is your goal this week. 

 Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – Sept 22

 Self-esteem is a curious thing. I mean there are entire industry’s devoted to the topic. Lovely Virgo could probably give us an entire expose about it as well. When it boils down to it though, what do you tell yourself by way of encouragement, strength, and confidence? Do you tell others one thing, yet tell yourself another? Words matter for you. Words are keys to your past and medicine for your future. Take a notebook around this week and consider building a new soulful lexicon, one that includes a few exquisite words for yourself.

 Libra or Libra Rising: Sept 23 – Oct 22

It wasn’t necessarily your plan this week light Libra, to face a loved one with anger but when do we ever plan such things. This opportunity has you considering your words in relationship to your passion (anger included). It has become clear that you cannot keep all the words held inside, or censor the words into good and bad. What does it mean to speak with passion from an authentic place? Your relationship to anger may be ready to tell you something real and profound. That little blush in your cheeks is the real measure of the passion you can muster. It looks mighty good on you.

 Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Oct 23 – Nov 21

Sylvia Plath, Scorpio poetess ends her poem, Morning Song this way: The window square whitens and swallows its dull stars. And now you try your handful of notes; the clear vowels rise like balloons. There are definitely some new notes this week for you passionate Scorpio, new ideas that come out of your body spontaneously. It is for you to sort the notes, messages, songs, and to build a path to bring your passion into the souls and hearts of the many. Maybe find a sexy notebook this week, and a most beautiful pen. Your story is written on the body. 

 Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: Nov 22 – Dec 21

 Are you taking enough down time this week Sag to counterbalance the myriad work details that overwhelm your day? You will have to listen to yourself this week, no if, ands or buts about it. You might harbor some resentment if you don’t get your quota me time.This week making room for a creative or recreational endeavor is just the ticket. Feel the light of your true self rush in with a big, smile and just the right juice to keep you rocking your career like a smooth operator.  

 Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Dec 22 - Jan 19

 In this first blush of Fall you are celebrating new beginnings Capricorn my love. There was time when this new opportunity would have scared you. You might have questioned your readiness, you might have not had the language, words, or learning about you. You can rest assured that you have it this week. You have the ability to learn a new language, and carve out confidence. Take an account of how you want to do things, and the action is right there waiting for you. The gift of communication comes to you at the ready. A silver tongue that can deliver change.

 Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Jan 20 – Feb 18

 Yesterday I had a chance to see the sloughed skin of a tarantula. Forgive me if the mention of this has you creeping or crawling Aquarius my love, but I tell you it was awesome. Such a beautifully thing, the total transformation that comes when we shed a layer, a skin, a self that is not longer needed. The newest filaments remain, speak to us, and tell us a new story of our relationship to others and to self. What is your sloughing story this week? Is there a new you glimmering through? Transformation, though hard, brings a bright new skin.

 Pisces or Pisces Rising: Feb 19 – March 20

There was this wardrobe, a Lion and even a Witch. It all began inside the dark, luscious feel of old coats in a closet, and then a step into a wonderful, new, strange world. Like C.S. Lewis, you are a maker of worlds this week dearest Pisces, and strangely this epic, magical sensibility you hold, gets a chance to touch down into your vocation. Into reality! You didn’t realize that your epic sense of adventure could pair so exquisitely with the real world.  Get the old coats out of the closet. Ready yourself for a beautiful ride, and maybe even an extra few gold coins. 

Sept 10 - 16 2018

Trending Words: Miracles and Manifestation

Books for the Week: The Three Marriages by David Whyte and Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Significant astrological events this week include Venus’ slide into Scorpio and a conversation with Mars at 0 degree’s Aquarius. Also we are working closely with a fixed Grand Cross in Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus. 
 
Dearest friends, a fruitful telling of the weekly trends would have us paying attention to our shadows with the help of Venus in Scorpio. Please don’t keep beating your head on the same resentments. Take a deep dive into WHAT attracts you and WHY. Be careful not to lay blame on the other until you’ve figured out how to take responsibility for yourself.  
 
You may find your steamy, latent, erotic self just waking up feeling, well, kinda hungry. What you find as a way of satisfying that hunger is the stuff of Scorpio in Venus. Venus is in a challenging relationship to Mars and this tension looks like a crossroads in a relationship—two very distinct and fixed points of view. One is emotional. One is practical. One is closer than close, one is two shades to the wind. Too close, too far, too close, too far—whew! Homework is getting these two points of view to the table for a summit.  
 
A Cardinal Cross in fixed signs tells us that we are in a deep state of compromise. All four points want to be heard, and even, followed. Fixed states of stubbornness and even the inability to find empathy with each other become the worst-case scenario. But how would it be to pull off the impossible? How would it feel to move forward, finding a compromise that actually feels good to all those involved? Sounds like a miracle? This is a good word for this week folks. Miracle. Honestly I really am not sure what to say about this word as I left it long ago when I left the faith of my youth, but it has reared its head of late. What does the word miracle mean? Webster’s says that it’s a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences. Well, why not try for welcome consequences indeed.  
 

Horoscopes: Sept 10- Sept 16 


Aries or Aries Rising: March 21– April 19 
 
If you don’t address your deepest desires this week Aries love, your body will keep sending you messages of frustration. The fantasies that roll through your head get a real chance to enliven in ways that satisfy this familiar yearning. Get ahead of the fantasy with a chance to dance with Eros, yep, I mean let your sweet erotic, juicy self out just a little bit more than usual.
 
Taurus or Taurus Rising: April 20 – May 20
 
When the teacher arrives will you recognize them? This is a very real question for you Taurus as you are looking to hone your creative life. Much is said about the word, humility, but for you this week, the word may just be your key to open myriad possibilities If the teacher is a trickster, even better, listen close, sharpen your instincts, and let the learning begin!
 
Gemini or Gemini Rising: May 21 – June 21
 
A Return to Love is how Marianne Williamson titled one of her books, and in this case is really what your Gemini spirit is craving this week. Returns. Be like the veritable boomerang lovely Gemini with wicked homing skills so that you get the down time you need. Dig deep into the local sprites and spirits that help you build your house of belonging. Let that juicy lover-part-of-you unfurl, and, surprisingly if you want to try your hand at canning raspberry jam, well by all means. 
 
 Cancer or Cancer Rising: June 22 – July 22
 
A deep nurturing seed might grow this week lovely Cancer as you come to see how important acts of service are to your deepest connections. When you throw too many words at situation without an understanding of abiding action you fall into the proverbial all talk and no walk scenario.  You care, and we all know that. You want to help. We know that too. Let’s see if you can find ways to show this in the real world with your partner or closest friends. Show up, dearest Cancer. Show up. 
 
Leo or Leo Rising: July 23 – August 22
 
The conversation has changed dramatically this week Leo, and you are riding the wave big time. Whoa! It is hard to remember what you thought last week, let alone yesterday. This wave is having you asking the right questions surrounding your value. The poet Rilke said that we need to ask the right questions first, and finding those right questions is your quest this week. Shine the light on where you’d like to devote yourself! Wield Ganesh this week too. Obstacles be gone!
 
Virgo or Virgo Rising: August 23 – Sept 22
 
Mary Karr, a famous memoirist, say’s that to write a good memoir you need to write from love. This way, even if your story doesn’t match those that appear in the story, you still know that it was born out of love. This week Virgo darlin’, you may be surprised at how differently you see an issue in relationship to someone in your life that experienced the exact same thing. Let the difference teach you, observe your commonalities, communicate through differing points of view. Sweet compassion pared with truth telling might just be your healing balm.  
 
Libra or Libra Rising: Sept 23 – Oct 22
 
The Sabian Symbol that corresponds with your week speaks of the human desire for contact with the beyond and deep inquiry. Curious. Now I am not saying that you need to get your friends together for a 30’s style spiritualist séance lovely Libra, but there might just be a thin veil for you in next few days, so laying out a lineage of those you want to work with spiritually could really clear up some of the chaos you’ve been feeling. Who do you look to for spiritual understanding? Start there. 
 
Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Oct 23 – Nov 21
 
Why do people see me as intense? Do I have to quell my intensity for people to stick around, even to love me? This might be the question on our Scorpio’s mind this week. We hear you! Analysis of WHY folks stay or go is driving you crazy. Better to get back to the reasons why you live and love, learning to be proud of your fierce gaze, recognizing how strongly you love, and asking the universe to pair you with those who can meet you in the circle of that potency. In quoting Mr. Picasso, I do not seek, I find. 
 
Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: Nov 22 – Dec 21
 
How does language play into your day-to-day work? Are you a wordsmith, or someone that values communication? The work of communication is a tricky business especially when we realize that timing plays an important role in what we say and when. We will want to wield fierce honesty yet all the while honor that little voice in the back of our head saying all in due timeall in due time. Master of timing this week is yours; you hold the power in a single word. 
 
Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Dec 22 - Jan 19

 
Don’t laugh when I give you perhaps the cheesy, but sweet crooning quote of Adele when she says she’d forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet. This week has you thinking of simpler times, more carefree. What has the burden of responsibility brought you—opportunities, power, money? Capricorn love, give yourself the gift of playfulness this week, cartwheels across the lawn, a simple stroll through forest or park. Look to adding that carefree step to your world-heavy plan. A mercurial shuffle ball change! 
 
Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Jan 20 – Feb 18
 
The famous sculptor Auguste Rodin always said that it is not enough to think a thing, we must render our ideas into things, again and again. Our success depends on this. Ideas are coming from everywhere this week, out of the woodwork, out of thin air, seemingly out of the ether. The equation for total incarnation is your homework this week Aquarius. How do you give birth to an idea? The answer may have you working behind the scenes and into some serious, spiritual jujitsu for answers.
 
 
Pisces or Pisces Rising: Feb 19 – March 20
 
Compasses are beautiful things in and of themselves. Object d’art. What compasses DO, is even more beautiful. They give us the way forward. They let us take confident first steps toward the horizon. They let us breathe a sigh of relief. Finding your direction this week, dreamy Pisces, and a direction that appeals to you no less, has you happier than happy. Finally, you say, I see it! This little magical pointer has you clearing out superfluous relationships, and honing your pathfinder, for a real chance at soul location. 

Zodiac in Translation: Highlights, Mantra and Horoscopes for Sep 3 - Sept 9

 

Trending This Week

Tuesday, September 5

Mercury Enters Virgo: Mercury rolls into its home sign of Virgo this week with a sigh of relief. Look to communications starting to clear up and hot ego’s calming down. May be just the time to start thinking about your mediation practice a little more seriously. If you could imagine cleaning up your thoughts, how would you do it? Some mind-maintenance is in order.

Thursday, September 6

Saturn turns Direct: Saturn in Capricorn is now rolling direct for the first time since April. Let’s just say you’ve done the work necessary to start seeing your work pay off. I have many in my life who have some aching bones from trying to build out projects. Stand on the fruit of your labor, remain dedicated, watch it grow.

Saturday, September 8

Venus Squares Mars: Only thing I’d watch out for is how the conflict over something small, like choosing what to watch on Netflix with your lover, turns into an out and out brawl. Conflict resolution inside your relationships has you tending to your values this week both personal and shared.

Sunday, September 9

New Moon in Virgo: I will write a special newsletter on this one. Please consult my newsletter, or better yet, sign up to receive what the new moon brings every month in your email box. http://www.sharizollinger.com/zodiac-in-translation-newsletter/

Sunday, September 9

Venus moves into Scorpio: Deep love. Deep intimacy. Deep trust issues. Deep intimacy issues. No matter how you spin it, with Venus taking a nosedive into Scorpio this week, we can expect to see our shadows loom large. If you are connected at all to Scorpio in your chart, pay special attention to your patterns in relationships. Is it time to resolve old wounding, old patterning? Make Eros work for you this week too. In the words of Alice Hoffman in Rules of Magic, love more this week, not less.

 

Horoscopes:

Aries: March 21– April 19

You finally knew what you had to do, quotes Mary Oliver in her poem, The Journeythough the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice. Determined Aries, this week has you taking your own advice in ways that bring you in service to the truth, your truth. And little by little, as Ms. Oliver so eloquently says it, a new voice emerges which you slowly recognize as your own. 

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Some folks see spreadsheets as art—all that precision, color, and meticulous organization fulfills two purposes, aesthetic AND mechanical. Taurus, this week has you striking this balance. Your service to beauty is calling for the sweet help of a good spreadsheet. Prioritize your values! How much time do you spend on creativity itself? Do you need a practical plan that gives you a much needed sigh of relief?

Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Remember the little revolution that was Marie Kondo’s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and remember the term she coined, spark joy? Whimsical Gemini, you’ve waited a long time to commute these words to home. Stay real with it!  Just go up to the things you own, including the clothes in your closet and simply ask yourself if they spark joy. Albeit my job to tell you to get rid of anything, but if it has your heart flat-lining, give it a toss. 

Cancer: June 22 – July 22

We can learn a thing or two from Puck from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream who mostly spoke in riddles, but also helped us decipher those riddles telling us to alight to plainer ground. Sensitive Cancer, this week, Pucks spritely shadow has you speaking with the heart of poetry and the mind of prose. Only in this way will true communication be achieved. Touching transcendence with precise grammar may just take you to a new level of understanding. 

Leo: July 23 – August 22

Service or slavery, dear Leo is what’s on your mind this week. There is a fine line here as you measure your minutes to see where you should continue to put your time and where you should not. Because you are one who understands money as energy, it will be extremely important this week to observe the ebb and flow of your energy, heartily, I might say, to see if there are any leaks. Take time to batten the hatches in preparation for smarter abundance.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

The Tarot card that corresponds to Virgo is no less that the veritable, Hermit. This has me thinking of turtles too. How much time do you find yourself alone? How much alone time do you need? Do you enjoy your own company? These are some of your questions this week Virgo. Some good ole’ fashioned self-maintenance will go a very long way. You might even watch out for turtles (wink, wink).

Libra: September 23 – October 22

I analyze might be your mantra this week beautiful Libra. Have you been seeing things in three’s of late? Have you figured out synchronicity? You’ve just seen a glimpse of the depths you could plumb into your own spiritual curiosity and you are amazed if not a little overwhelmed. Gaining a foothold in the language of the soul is yours to analyze this week. Write down a dream, speak in tongues? 

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

Clarissa Pinkola Estes speaks of   finding ones pack—locating a community, where the commerce of ideas can ebb and flow. This week has you, fierce Scorpio doing some culling and editing within your social and network groups. Sensitive to criticism, take this week to spend more time on finding people you belong to rather than spending time with those who make you feel small.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Have you ever done the Strengths Finder test? This may be the week to identify in clear detail, what constitutes your top 3-10 personal strengths. You may be surprised by what you find. What you thought was your top ace-in-the hole strength might show up way down the line only to be upstaged by a coy little strength waiting in the wings, ready steal the show, even to rise up and help you become the successful rockstar that you are.

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

There are two ways to travel, through the body and through the mind. This week strong Capricorn you are considering just how far you can travel within your mind. In Pema Chodron's The Places That Scare You she encourages us to  go into the places that scare us with compassionate inquiry into the workings of ego. This is your assignment this week. Take a compassionate tour around your mind with an eye on building a more robust and lasting meditation practice. 

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Charlotte was both spider and friend to Wilbur in the classic children’s book, Charlotte’s Web. She used her words to keep Wilbur, literally, from going to Market. Spiders are often associated with writing, weaving messages, creating the web of our world. Dear Uranus, you have a magical story at your fingertips this week and you see how special is the story you want to tell. You finally know what constitutes real power. Protect the truth, let it out, share it with others— let it spin.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

There are these libraries that live out in the ether called the Akashic Records. Imagine taking a book out of that library this week dear Pisces. In that book lie three important messages, one to you, one to someone you love, and one to the world. It is your duty this week to deliver those messages, however small they may seem. I suspect you’ll have an eye on compassion, and your heart situated just right for these tasks.  

 

Horoscopes for August 26 - September 2: A Dream of Fairy Tales

Aries: March 21– April 19

How long will you be in service to something that doesn’t pay off? Yep, yours is the Beauty and the Beast story with a twist. Acts of service show up in light and shadow. Your fierce independence asks you to flip the script. Productivity is on the rise and new ideas are on the move. Befriend the teacups and saucers, and start making things again!

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Red Riding Hood took a big basket of Taurus delectables into the forest to grandma’s house. With a pension for artisan food, Ms. Hood had some sweet treats in there. Consider yourself at grandma’s house this week sensual Taurus, trying to decipher the truth. Is grandma who she says she is? Are here ears really that long? Trying to see past illusion is your week’s work. Watch out for wolves.

Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Doesn’t it feel like every fairy tale starts with a loss of home? Why is that? Snow White lost her home and went off to live with the Seven Dwarfs. This week inquisitive Gemini has you digging into the past both personally and professionally. You are finally ready to ask the deeper questions and ready to accept the truth. It may be time to let go of small slights and look to big picture wholeness. There may even be a magical kiss.

Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Does it seem like your lines of communication have suddenly gone murky or that you are yelling from a long turret in a room in tower?  It’s definitely time to reassess those lines, come down from isolation and clear up the misunderstanding. Yep, you feel like you are a victim of circumstance (I mean you were in a tower all those years) but pulling out from under that story and seeing yourself as strong and by all means a hero is your task this week. 

Leo: July 23 – August 22

There was this story about magic beans, giants, and a boy named Jack. Proud Leo, you will know more than anyone this week when a good trade is viable. What do you really want for your future? How can you take a few small (but magical) resources and grow them overnight? Don’t be surprised by what you plant, but do know a thing of integrity when you see it. Stand up to those that think they know (and the giants) and take that risk.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

Thank goodness for best friends this week Virgo and oh yes, siblings. The plight of Hansel and Gretel was a much better one BECAUSE they had each other. Knowing yourself and your sweet, intimate circle this week is important. Learn to reorganize your inner Baba Yaga, the riddler who yes, lures you in with something sweet but might have a surprising message for you.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

Bright Libra, you might find yourself sorting this week, even cataloging and organizing, maybe even looking for right labels, names. In the world of fairy tales, there is power in a name, the Rumplestiltskin story—a classic example. A modern day understanding of this has you recognizing the stuff that has been swirling under the surface of your consciousness. Coming to identify that stuff behind the veil may bring great relief.   

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

What does service to your community actually mean? This is your inquiry deep, Scorpio. A true question. Are you supposed to go on doing the Cinderella thing, scrubbing the fire grate, or are you supposed to take a look around, and figure out how your skill set merges seamlessly with your local, and global comrades. What do you want to say? When you find your confidant voice there is no end to the magic you can conjure. Think pumpkins and mice.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Ambition can go two ways this week energetic Sag, and you’re the one to control the narrative. Will you either, in reference to the infamous Red Shoes, dance the shoes or have the shoes dance you. You have every right to decide. It will be tempting to take the passive role, and let the shoes take you far and wide. However, this is a time to tap into your deepest confidence and build your own momentum. This act is yours alone. 

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

We all know what it is like to labor for knowledge, to put work and effort into mastering our education. You’ve come all the way from the house of Bluebeard stable Capricorn, where your curiosity led you to a truth that set you free. This is a crossroads in your schooling. Which path leads to freedom and which one doesn’t? Let’s get you the right keys.  

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

If there were any week to believe that you have a magnetic side it would be this week lovely Aquarius. Just as the Pied Piper played an appealing tune, this week you’ll be wondering how you amassed such a dynamic team around you. This is where the work begins. Start thinking how to keep those you invited in, goals, tools, plans and ways forward.  

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

There was a woman who wanted a great deal from her partner, more and more wishes from a single magic fish. It might be time to have that conversation with your lover, or partner about what they want, what you want—what the relationship wants. Have you found the balance between the material and spiritual with you partner? What lies beyond the picket fence and flashy car? True partnership has you dreaming of investing in classes together, Acro-Yoga or Tango anyone?

 

Horoscopes for August 20 – August 26

Aries: March 21– April 19

Love struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade, so sings Amy Ray from the Indigo girls. Yep Aries, it’s about being that bold this week. Letting your best, and brightest being finally spill out onto the world stage. Look to see what it means to carry Eros with you wherever you go. We are not just talking about sex here. We are talking about love as constructive, and helpful in finding success in the world. 

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Channeling Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz dearest Taurus this week has you calling for home. I mean, what does true north look like, feel like, can I touch it, can I wrap myself up in it? Contemplating that plot of land you call your nest is certainly in your stars this week. Cultivate a pot of soil, succulent perhaps?

Gemini: May 21 – June 21

Do you remember the single most important book of your childhood? Was it about dolphins? Secret gardens? Bridges? This week will have you considering the lessons of earlier years. Did you or did you not lose yourself in those books? Is it time to reread a passage or two from that childhood story? Practice bibliomancy this week dear Gemini, with that dusty tome.

Cancer: June 22 – July 22

Finally you see it, how to manage work AND relationships. The key was hidden under the pile of work at your desk. Look under there and you’ll find the word freedom. You’ll also discover the equation for conserving and expending energy. Please take lessons from the earth. A little conservation goes a long way dearest moon-lover. A few love-laden boundaries within your relationships will also do the same.

Leo: July 23 – August 22

Retrograde made a splash with you these past few weeks dearest sun worshiper. But now, after perhaps a few run-in’s with your Ego, you are cleansed and ready to shine on. In the words of the moderns, make it new! This is your mantra this week dear Leo, shine that bright self into the avant-garden, give your weirdest ideas a chance. (yep, avant-garden). 

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

Hugging the dream realm sounds like a silly statement, but for you dearest analyzer, this has your juices flowing. Suddenly you are rocking dreamtime with a new pension for lucidity. How do you get your dreams flowing? Ask them questions, find out how to they work, consider your guides just waiting behind the veil ready to give you some surprisingly practical advice.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

Dearest Venus lover, Instagram becomes the case in point this week and the conundrum between private and public. Striking this balance has you taking less screen time, and spending an hour or two in a hammock between two trees. It is time to make smarter posts in less time, and reserving some of your most private moments for you, your family, and your lover. Be constructively plugged. Unabashedly unplugged.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

Brene Brown, poster child for our Scorpio’s, used a good part of her career to study vulnerability. An academic who used qualitative data, she’s got some numbers and a few books behind her belt on the subject. She’s even willing to admit that she might be pretty vulnerable herself. Taking what we consider to be a weak trait and flipping it looks like this weeks work dear Scorpio. Which vulnerability are you proud of? Dare to let someone in your circle of intimates know.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Sag, the recent cramp in your style has you resenting those who want to suppress your will to fly. What you gotta know lovely traveler is that you were born to fly, even if that desire lies stagnant some days. Its time to build flight into your schedule because right now there are construction plans holding you partially bound. These plans do not have to be considered negative, as you are building into long-term goals. Roots and wings love, roots and wings.

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

Why does the word superfluous keep coming up? What does it mean? A dip into Webster’s says this: superfluous: unnecessary, especially through being more than enough.Whoohoo! Turns out you are more than enough dearest Capricorn! Finding where you can let go for the betterment of your day-to-day operations will have you tightening the hatches. Rocking wholeness like a boss. 

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Uranus born, lovely Aquarius, do you keep meeting jesters and magicians? Any chance you keep drawing the Fool Card and The Magician card, perhaps simultaneously? Probably a sweet sign to fold humor and magic a little deeper into yourself and your relationships. Laughter IS the medicine one might say in this case. Build your weeks intentions around helping yourself and others to laugh and also feel seen and understood through deep intentional connecting.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

Calling all poetry darlings, dancers. filmmakers. visionaries. yogini’s, dreamers, and energy workers just to name a few jobs our Pisces love to do. Dearest Pisces it is time to channel your transpersonal pizzazz into your work, your job, your day-to-day operations. That hip-swaying you do without thinking about it? Yes, how can that turn into a piece of choreography or better yet, the way into a new job. Just sayin’.
