Aries: It ain’t over. Decide what you’re willing to give and then speak your mind.
Taurus: You can’t make folks go your way. YOU go YOUR way. All paths lead the same place.
Gemini: It’s time to stop being a lover of all trades and become a master of ONE… or TWO (at the most!). Two key words: Specialize & strategize.
Cancer: You’re rising up into a brand new beginning, and like all births, you have to labor alone. It’s not that people don’t love you, but allowing them to cling to you now would only stunt your growth.
Leo: Let your painful emotions be the river you sail through, away from guilt and martyrdom into a bright new beginning where its ALL ABOUT YOU.
Virgo: Speak your heart, NOT your mind. When it comes to love, winning verbal swordplay guarantees you lose the desires of your heart. Speak your tender truth, not your sharp ideas.
Libra: You made the right decision. It’s time to move on.
Scorpio: Everyone has enough fire for themselves. You have no more life force to give away. Release all your obligations except the ones that DIRECTLY benefit YOU.
Sagittarius: This new moon, it's about what you say AND how you say it. Express your thoughts in a heartfelt way, and express your feelings in a thoughtful way.
Capricorn: Sometimes we have to pause, reflect and sacrifice for love. Somebody is holding on tight.
Aquarius: For awhile, doing the same thing was making you feel shitty, but you’ve just broken through to success. This is a false high. I repeat, A FALSE HIGH. The cycle will repeat unless you do something new. Bet money.
Pisces: There’s pressure to keep producing but you need to slow down and cultivate the million things you ALREADY got going. Folks might be big mad or little mad but if you’re the source and you need to slow down, they will gahtdamb deal.

Hey Aries fireball, light of so many lives! These days, you feel like you’ve risen from the dead. This new version of you is all about family, stability, foundation and making decisions based on a deep understanding of your needs AND the needs of your loved ones. But you hate to settle, Aries -- and sometimes you confuse SETTLING with just being SETTLED. There is a subtle but potent difference. You feel like you’re either sacrificing everything for your family or completely ignoring their needs. It's hard to find a middle ground but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one. You’re bucking to do something new, go somewhere new, do things in a different way -- but make sure the impulse to focus on something new doesn’t steal your concentration from what you’re doing NOW.
This new moon, remember that everything shiny ain’t gold. Persevere with the stability you are creating and have created. Learn how to feel SETTLED without worrying you’re SETTLING. There a lot of liars and manipulators out here who would love to steal the sand from a shifting castle. For now, be still. Make sure you’ve noted all the blessings available to you right here now, before you roam in search for more.
Greetings Earth Goddess. A powerful decision or event cut someone or something out of your life, and now the familial stability you knew is gone and you have no choice but to begin again. You understand you must leave the past behind you. You understand that sometimes you have to move on to find home.
This new moon, go forth with a renewed spirit. Do not speak of those former things, for they have passed away. As you go forth, trust you are on a journey to your own personal heaven, the fulfillment of the vision you’ve been dreaming in your heart. The one you wished but dare not speak. And as you move forward with a future that’s been detailed to your specifications, don’t hesitate to be very clear with everyone who matters about the parameters and requirements of your new existence. Anything else would be like waiting a year for an exclusive reservation, ordering a five-star meal, and then not correcting the waiter when he brings the wrong plate.
After all you’ve gone through, you better get it how you want it.
Keep shining, Gemini. You recently endured a situation where you felt you had to fight some folks off to protect your position, and not only are you hurt beyond belief, you’re still feeling defensive. But you’re still fighting. You’re focused on Scorpio season and what it means -- death, transformation, and what survives and what doesn’t -- both in yourself and in the world. At the crux of it all, you’re trying to think your way through and sort it out in your mind. You’re standing at the metaphorical coffin trying to rationalize the death; but this season calls to simply make peace with the mysteries of life and let it go.
This new moon, be clear about your boundaries. You can’t work through your shit and other folks shit at the same time. Put up a “construction in progress” sign. Let folks know that it’s not personal, but you gotta do what you gotta do for you. Channel your inner Aries and put yourself first. There might be some pushback for that -- some conflict -- but when isn’t there? You know how to handle that. You know how to handle change. You’re mutable as they come. You really want to be happy so you can’t be scared of the journey through darkness to find your light. Its an adventure, not a death sentence. At the end of the day, you may still feel forlorn and lost and focused on all the sad things. And that’s okay, that’s what the darkness of the new moon is for. Just know that whenever you’re ready to drag your mind toward your blessings, even more than before will be waiting.
Well, that was quite an adventure, Cancer! And now as you arrive at your hardwon destination, ready for your reward at the end of your quest, you’re still left in darkness somehow. This should be your bright new beginning but you can’t quite see it. You have a tendency to see things as black and white -- either fabulous or fail -- and you’re judging this new beginning a fail. You’ve moved forward, except you haven’t. The tension between where you are and where you want to be is affecting your relationships, turning your love clutch into a vice grip of criticism.
This new moon, focus on balance. Remove the chains of your old thoughts. Raise the vibration of your understanding so that you see your own life story as a script acted for your highest good. If you still doubt the past, zoom out and see yourself as a piece of a puzzle so large you’ll never see or perceive the end of it in its entirety. There was no mistake. Furthermore, no matter what happened before, you ARE at a new beginning now. Focus your energy on yourself, your blessings, and the road in front of you. You can’t get far staring in the rearview.
My, my, you’re busy Leo! Was that a roar or a yawn? You’ve got so many skills, talents and options that it’s difficult to define your boundaries between one activity and the next. It’s all becoming one big blur. Even before you complete one task, your mind is already on the next thing. Prioritizing is a challenge.
This new moon asks you to to slow the rhythm of your life for a moment, so you can hear your own voice. What do you WANT to do? How do you FEEL? It is very easy at this time to lose track of your true motivations, and overextend yourself based on the unrealistic notion that you can do it all. You must investigate your emotions to hone in on what you want to put your energy, self, time to. You’re worried that by choosing one thing over another, that you’re calling one thing better than the other, but discrimination is necessary before you wear yourself out. The best choice is the one that benefits YOU. So what brings you joy? What brings you peace? What puts you more in touch with yourself? Those are the criteria for which endeavors are more deserving of your energy.
Hail, Valiant Virgo! Recently, the universe handed you a burst of potent energy, as a positive way to kick start this new life cycle. And course being the industrious Virgin, you put that energy to good use. On one hand you know you’ve done what’s required, and you have total faith that you will receive what you’ve earned. On the other hand, you’re tired of looking for fruit when all you see is root. You’re obsessing over your endeavors in the world, and you’re worried and anxious about how you’re being received. Your thoughts are relentless and leave you no peace.
This new moon, tame your mind. Get it under control. Make it roar FOR you and not AT you. Remind yourself how wonderful you are, how powerful, how resilient, how honorable you are, how you’re MORE than a conqueror. Remind yourself that you did what you were supposed to do and the rest will come in time. Like the song says, after you’ve done all you can, STAND. The attention and investment you seek is coming; make sure that when it does, the best, brightest and highest version of yourself is ready to accept.
Heyyyy lovely Libra. In the recent past you were in some sort of community environment -- possibly work or school -- and you don’t feel like you can be truthful about how much you’re NOT still feeling it. You want endeavors that are more idealistic; you’re looking for something that gives you more space and time to have a perfect home life. However instead of doing the work to get it how you want it, you’re pretending to be satisfied.
And also, what IS the perfect home life, anyway? And is your idea of it based on fuzzy memories of an idyllic past? Or a realistic analysis of the best possible choices NOW?
This new moon, get grounded, be present, and learn to appreciate where you are and what you have. You don’t have to be satisfied with your circumstances to appreciate them. Stop idealizing the past and and fantasizing about the future, but make peace with the present. Literally, treat each moment as a GIFT. You’re fixated on the best of times and you’re terrified of the worst of times, but real life happens in between. From the powerful mental space created by giving your life the best possible attention and care, you will then be able to redefine and recreate your world as you see fit.
It’s still your season, Scorpio! In the past you got really skilled and consistent at something, but now you’re at a crossroads. You’re not sure whether to continue developing your current discipline, or strike out and do something totally new. You really want embark on a traditional and correct course of behavior -- whatever THAT means -- but deep down you’re learning to listen to your queer inner whisperings and fantastic longings. You’re beginning to understand that moving forward, progress will require integration between the taboo and the traditional.
This new moon, your advice is to be creative as fuck. Use every crayon in the box, every tool on your belt. You might be facing or dealing with old wounds or restrictions, or perhaps somebody is trying to make you feel guilty, but you can push past all that. Remember that people only know of you what you or somebody else tells them. You don’t have to tell anyone anything. You’re made of screams AND whispers and you can be a silent thunderclap if you want to.
This is a time of your life where you’re redefining and relearning what the “right” thing is, and it can be whatever the fuck you want it to be. Fantasy, responsibility and spontaneity can co-exist.
Hello, you wise and all knowing Sag! It looks like in the recent past you were inspired to begin a new venture, and you set out doing the work to make it happen. But then things didn’t pan out the way you expected, and you’re not sure whether to blame the culprits and snap on these fools, or just turn tail and walk away from the whole damn thing. You’re focused on figuring out how to take care of your own little piece of the pie because you are fed the fuck up and don’t feel like thinking about anybody else.
This new moon is calling you to understand that you are capable of taking care of yourself AND your nearest and dearest, but you have to take care of you FIRST. It's cold outside and folks need each other. However, just because you provide support and stability doesn’t mean you have to short yourself AT ALL. You just need to learn how to very vocal about your own needs. People won’t know how to treat you unless you teach them. TEACH THEM. Queens and Kings don’t abandon their kingdoms just ‘cause folks ain’t acting right. Distribute your laws to the people.
Hey capable Cap! Welcome to your new world! In the recent past you got very clear and vocal about the things you need to happen in your life. You pumped your own self up, got a new spirit and a brand new swag, but true to form, you’re keeping your swag a secret. Your business ain’t everybody’s business. You’re very internal, just trying to learn your lessons from all the fucked up shit that has happened, and use your newfound wisdom to have a positive outlook. Finally, you believe life could be good again.
The advice for the new moon is to come out of hiding and show off your new skills. Talk about your plans, answer questions, and work with others who share your vision. This is a time for stability and equality in business and love partnerships. You don’t want to entertain any bullshit, and that’s perfect because there’s none coming. The hard times are behind you.
Adventurous Aquarius, what’s good? ! In the recent past your hard work over a long period of time paid off and enabled you to very effective in supporting those who depend on you. Your hard work has also given you the chance to customize your life just the way you like it, and things are moving really FAST. Maybe too fast? So fast, that your obligations have become numerous and your personal needs have been left in the cold. With all you provide for others, who provides for you?
This new moon, fight for yourself. Defend your time, your peace, your space, your energy. Use this time to get organized, to delegate, to be crystal clear about your responsibilities and requirements, and the boundaries between the two. Put systems in place to preserve your sanity. When you invest in yourself, the profits are priceless.
I’m serious. Why aren’t you at the spa already?
Hey Powerful Pisces! Recently you gave someone something, and they didn’t give it back, and the fact that they didn’t give it back left you out in the cold somehow. You think things should be even steven and that you should get back whatever you give. The fact that you haven’t been restored makes you feel forced to make a sacrifice you weren’t willing to make.
This new moon, ponder the root cause of your mental anguish. Get all the way down to the nitty gritty. Think it through. Look at your own choices. Have faith that what you put out in the WORLD, you get back from the WORLD, not necessarily from the person that gave it to you. We are all one, and no one knows that better than you, Pisces.
Try not to take the actions of others so personally.
We’ve shown ourselves to be strong, resilient, resourceful, independent, capable, majestic. We conquered our fears. We stood courageous. As a prize, the universe sent a brand new energy, a brand new host of possibilities and abilities -- if only we could allow ourselves to receive.
And in fact we haven’t been open to receive because we have too much shit to do. The tasks of the world don’t leave much time to innovate ourselves. Because adulting is time consuming af.
You ever feel like you would fulfill your destiny except -- (insert long list of things to do for everybody but you)? Or that you’ll live your dreams as soon as -- (insert endless loop of circumstances that will never release you from duty)? You ever feel like everything is gonna fall the fuck apart if you stop selling pieces of your time away?
#MeToo. And it's a lie. We were created to be more than maintainers of the structures of others. This new moon, think passive streams of income. If we are to bear the fruit that sings in our roots, we must have the time to do so. We must have the peace of mind. The answer isn’t what our ancestors would have done, which is work harder. That is impossible. That WILL kill us. We are right to feel dead inside when we do that. That’s the secret the new moon in Scorpio season comes whispering in our ear. Working harder brings death closer by. We have to learn how to work smarter. We have to learn to let our resources work for us and not the reverse.
Who told you you didn’t need support?
Who told you that you didn’t need to rest?
Who told you your new ideas and notions will cause destruction in your family?
WhoEVER they was, they lying. Even if they love you, they lying.

Stability for now, Aries. Enjoy it while it lasts. And because you’re peaceful for the moment, you’ve paused hashing and re-hashing the issue. You know the one. Its some shit you got to say and you might not be saying it right now, but trust and believe it's gon get said. Once the dam breaks, it looks like you’re going to have to give up something you’re not ready to give up just yet. Enjoy it for the moment but don’t delay the inevitable. What’s the phrase-- know when to get up from the table when love is no longer being served? It’s like that. You want a whole new table and a whole new meal, because there isn’t enough seasoning in the world to make you eat what doesn’t feed you.
Your advice this full moon is to let the endings come. Don’t look at the potential of the situation, see it for what it is. Acknowledge what it isn’t. Honor your pain and disappointment at the distance between the two.
And then wipe your tears because true friendship and joy await you beyond this fuckery.
Wait for it.
You’ve learned how to be your own calm in the midst of the storm, Taurus, but the strain of remaining unbothered was a tad too heavy, and perhaps you’ve used food, alcohol or other over-indulgences to share the load. And of course you can stop any time you want, but you get caught up thinking about the days when you didn’t have to compensate so hard just to cope, and the cycle begins again. You are torn up about either what you feel you owe somebody or what somebody owes you, and you feel so betrayed or so guilty -- or both-- that you literally can’t fucking stand it. Ultimately, throwing yourself into your work and focusing on being productive will help heal what ails you.
Your advice for this full moon is to look at things clearly, in the light. HERE and NOW. Not through the lens of history or from the comfort of cake and beer, but presently and soberly. If you look clearly, you’ll see you may have exaggerated the awfulness of it all. There is no boogeyman. No one is out to get you. Even if you have been hurt, know that you are a child of God and you are loved, protected and provided for. Because of YOUR confidence in YOUR journey, you can confidently keep YOUR intentions and actions pure enough to be scrutinized in the light of day. Make sure you have nothing to hide. On the flip side, know that if you DO have anything to hide, it will be revealed.
You will feel balanced and generous, triumphant and supported in your spirit again, it’s just going to take a little while. Be patient with yourself and others. Make a daily practice of letting go of the past, slowly and surely. Shed the skin of old unpleasantness one scale at a time.
You’re learning how to deal with your feelings in a constructive way, and that’s tricky. Your coping mechanisms give you the sensation that you are controlling your world, but even as you claim your authority, you doubt yourself, and/or you listen to those who doubt you. No matter-- whether the questions come from you, them or both, the sheer act of second-guessing yourself and/or being second guessed will force you to rely more heavily on your intuition. Win! Since trusting your intuition sometimes requires withdrawal, you may be subject to scrutiny or speculation. But what is else is new?
At the crux of the issue, you’re learning how to communicate your thoughts rather than drown them out with distractions. You asked for and received a new beginning, and you want to start over the right way. The advice to you this full moon is to be as creative as possible. Talk, write, cry, draw, fuck, express, expel. This is the time to USE your feelings -- not mute them, not subdue them -- USE them. Your emotions are the tools AND the treasure, Gem.
Let your pain propel you forward.
You went full stealth mode recently, Cancer, where you turned on your night vision and let your intuition lead the way. The people, places and things choosing to remain in the shadows didn’t realize you can see in the dark. As a result, you’re minding your business and tending to your coins, but there are some who miss your attention. Folks aren’t used to you being selfish with yourself. And truthfully, you aren’t either; you’re longing to reach out and nurture somebody. Except you’re feeling defensive like you can’t trust these mofo’s, which turns you back into a crabby patty and your hugs turn to pinches.
This full moon, step into the light even if it hurts your eyes. Speak up. Talk about your feelings. Put words to the things you do not say, and know your voice deserves to be heard. Your emotions matter. Your intuition is accurate. You can trust yourself. And if your nearest and dearest don’t validate the emotions that sent you to your dark place in the first place, don’t let their denial become YOUR denial, and don’t shut up about your experience, either. Make the decision to stand up for yourself always, even if it means standing alone. You have learned to love folks from a distance, although you hope not to have to.
All of this is teaching you to perceive your psychic sensitivity as a strength, not a liability.
In the recent past, you received an offer that, while optimistic and well meant, might just be that bullshit. Now it's put up or shut up time -- either you have to move forward, accept the offer, and uphold your end of the commitment, or you have to speak up and say, “I’m sorry, but I think this might be that bullshit.” The problem is, you’re not sure how to say what needs to be said. You’re focused on making things happen for you AND your family, and you don’t want to mess that up by saying something in your signature roar that rubs some sensitive child of God the wrong way.
Your advice this full moon is to rest and think on it a little bit longer. If you want the words to come out the right way, you have to figure out WHY you feel the way you feel. And answering that question might take awhile, because this is a situation too close to see clearly. You might be bound by ideas and feelings you’ve adopted as your own but are not your own. You might be being manipulated. So first you have to see where the bondage is coming from, and then free yourself, and then express YOURSELF, and not the self of whoever thinks they’re controlling you.
At the end of the day, you will make choices that benefit you and your nearest and dearest, that are wise and not rash, that utilize your resources and make sure you have resources to pass around. Be patient with yourself and the process.
Change like this doesn’t happen overnight.
You’re living in a time warp, Virgo, experiencing you as the old version of you, even as the new you lives and breathes. You can’t keep up with yourself. You’ve never changed this much, this fast, this often. All this new life also means tiny deaths, and you aren’t comfortable with that.
You’re trying to be stable, to stay out of the way of change, but change IS the way. Also you’re a mutable sign so…
You’re still looking for the playbook. Still trying to follow the rules. Still trying to do the “right” thing, as if the right thing is anything other than what you want to do when you want to do it. And I don’t say that to everyone, but you have spent so many years trying to be perfect that even if you stopped nagging yourself all the time, you’d still get everything done. Also, you cannot increase your self-worth or self-esteem by being perfect. Also, being perfect doesn’t make life less scary. It doesn’t make those little deaths go away. It doesn’t make the ground stop shifting beneath your feet as soon as you get a grip. Life wants to dance with you.
This full moon, your advice is to follow the thread of your thoughts and find their source. Are your ideas yours? Are your boundaries yours? Are your beliefs about your limitations your own, or were they given to you? Who told you that you had to be perfect to be loved? Who called you unworthy, or thought it at you, like a dagger in your mind? Follow the lie, find the liar.
Your worth is fundamental, and there is nothing you can do or not do to diminish it. Beware of those who stand to gain from your not recognizing the fullness of your power.
You did what you thought was the “right” thing, and it was supposed to make you happy. Except it only made you miserable. You accept that, and you’re trying to learn the lesson because you’re wise like that.
The reason I put “right” in quotations a second ago, is because you should consider that what you think is the “right” thing, is actually a conclusion drawn from ideas you think are yours but perhaps are not really yours.
This full moon asks you to go inside and really tune in to your own voice, and ask yourself some direct questions about the source of authority in your world. After your analysis, any structures in your life not built on YOUR foundation will promptly fall. What is rebuilt in the aftermath will be honest and true, and you will learn to value yourself and your choices.
Your world is new inside AND out, Scorpio -- and happy birthday!! -- but in some ways you mourn the life you used to have. You aren’t fully ready to rise up and walk gloriously into your new day. You need closure. You’re still thinking about things you could have / should have done, boundaries you should have drawn, clapbacks you should have clapped. And that’s good that you’re reviewing the tape because lessons come so that we learn them.
In fact, revisiting the situation is a healthy form of release, but make sure “release” is the operative word. Don’t get sidetracked focusing on the events that caused the issues; instead, use your emotions as tools for purging and rejuvenation in and of themselves. You need to move through this rough patch so you can get back to executing decisions without the mystical unicorn of repressed anger dropping rainbow turds on your life.
One way to get through it is to focus on the good. Nothing is ever all bad, no matter how it turns out in the end. This full moon, bless the parts that blessed you and learn from the rest. Things are moving along for you and you need to strike while the iron is hot, but you can’t slay today if yesterday is slaying you. To be a master creator you have to be a clear channel -- which means you gotta get all that old bullshit out of the way. Transmute it. Transform it. Fuck it. You know, Scorpio shit. The bridge between the past and the future is acceptance.
It is what it is.
It looks you recently had a conversation that got a little heated. The melee triggered an underlying wound and now you’re feeling defensive af. You want to be fair, but what really matters to you is moving away from this situation with your sanity intact, even if you have to leave things unsettled. Once you make the decision to do what’s required for your inner peace, you will be rewarded with transformations in your external reality that reflect your internal work.
This full moon, take some time away to enjoy your accomplishments. Focus on your business, your coin, your schooling, your health, your children, your art, yourself. Know that the roots you planted are generating mad fruit and YOU gon' eat good because you earned it. Now is the time to figure out what makes YOU happy.
Let your satisfaction be your priority.
For whatever reason, Capricorn -- maybe due to new friends and new reasons to celebrate -- your heart is full. Even so, as old pain comes up, you’re learning how to express it, so you don’t block your newfound happiness. Still, you’re cognizant of the fact that some things that happened that you haven’t yet made peace with. And you’re cognizant of the fact that you ain’t about to make peace with that shit no time soon.
This full moon, keep doing what you’re doing -- which is learning how to deal and how to heal. You’re beginning to understand you shouldn’t deny or ignore petty unpleasantness, but rather accept it as a fact of life and act accordingly. Ignorance is not the cause of bliss, vigilance is. You must monitor your emotional garden for weeds, otherwise they will grow up and choke the buds just beginning to bloom. Turns out the road to paradise is just a path free from bullshit.
You were given a glorious burst of inspiration, and the universe is waiting to see what you do with it. But it's driving you crazy because you’re over thinking what to do, and as a result you’re conflicted, and if you’re talking to people about it or seeking advice, they’re giving you conflicting responses. But you know that’s your own energy being reflected back to you, like a funhouse mirror.
The root of the rabbit hole is where it gets deeper; the reason why you’re second guessing yourself and asking around for advice is because -- even though you know you’ve worked your entire ass off -- you still feel like you’re getting away with something, like you haven’t earned what you have. That’s called impostor syndrome. Even billionaires have it.
The cure is positive self talk and lots of it, starting with, I’M BLESSED. This full moon, your advice is to believe in yourself. Stop giving your power away by giving a fuck about other people’s opinions. Stop asking them. Can’t nobody advise you on you but you and what God gave you is for YOU, and you are so loved and cared for and that’s between you and your creator and eff who don’t like it. You walk with the King.
Right now people might be hating because they feel like they’re having a hard time and you aren’t; if you feeling a type of way about that, lend your expertise. First acknowledge how dope you are, then show the people how to be as dope as you are.
Recently, you were hit with inspiration, and then you did the research, made the plans and put forth the effort to turn that idea into reality.
But whatever coalesced, doesn’t sit right with you. At the crux of the situation, someone is offering you resources to fund your endeavors, but to accept the coins means you may have to submit someone’s else’s authority, and pretend you aren’t as powerful and intuitive as you are. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Your advice for this full moon, is to release your own project. Give it up. People might look at you crazy for it, but truth is, the help you’re being offered is placating, stagnating bullshit. It won’t allow you to grow and for you, growth is life.
Tbh you wanted a new beginning anyway. Tear it down and rebuild. In the rubble lie the tools required for creating a structure that suits you, and that doesn’t compromise your integrity.
We’ve recently come full circle on a dramatic cycle of lows and highs, and for better or worse it has delivered us into the new world we have made. But even as we faithfully wait for the divine execution of our new beginning, we obsess over the details. We like, “Now that I’m getting EXACTLY what I asked for, there’s no way I could worry or complain,” and then our Dark Kermit self is like, “Hold my beer.”
But who could blame us, honestly? The last five months, five years, fifty years have been trash in so many ways. That part. Why wouldn’t we scrutinize our treasure for signs that it’s been tainted? Why wouldn't we want to protect ourselves and our people from the things that fell apart? It’s pointless though. Our arms too short to box with God. If you don’t believe the Lord works in mysterious ways, look at your life. Just look at it. You don’t even recognize it, do you?
Our collective advice this full moon is to enjoy the happiness in our homes, wherever we find it. We earned this joy. We slayed that dragon. It DID happen, even if we were our only witness. The peace available to us right now isn’t a fluke, it’s the completion of a cycle of tests that we bossed up and handled like a fucking G. This is OUR reward and it can’t be taken from us. We earned those stripes, and by those stripes we are healed.
This full moon, our homework is to cultivate the habit of happiness. Our task is to practice seeing and speaking the goodness in our lives again, and again, and again.

Your thoughts are clear, your words are precise, and you absolutely, positively mean business. You know what you want, you’ve done the work, and now you’re just waiting for it to pay off. You’re wanting it to pay off so badly that you might have convinced yourself to just go get it instead of waiting for the natural course of events; you’re wanting to just rush in, talk to people crazy, roll your neck a little bit, and slice and dice with your eyes, mind and mouth.
Either you need to make a decision, or you need someone else to make a decision, period, point blank. This could go either way and suspense is not your strong suit. The thing is though, this whole situation is based on a tender bit of heartbreak that might have happened awhile back. Your impatience might be based on an inability or unwillingness to deal with prior pain and disappointment, so you’re rushing into the future to outrun your past. But when you are motivated by pressure instead of peace, everybody gets hurt, including you. Like a painter who has to clean his paintbrush or a wine taster who cleanses his palate, you need to get what happened off of you so you can create and /or receive what comes next with a clean slate.
This new moon, you are advised to do and expect a new thing. Not something based on what happened before, but based on what you WANT to happen next. This is a time for transformation, for choosing to be innovative with your emotions as well as your ideas. The same old, same old is just that. Your comfort zone is no longer comfortable because its not allowing enough growth. You’ve got to get out of your complacency and find your joy.
How you’re feeling right now is stemming from a decision you made about a soul mate, or some other major life choice. You chose as best you could based on your experiences and what you’ve survived. You have every right to come out of this situation proud of yourself, feeling like a bawse, but you’re doubting. You’re searching for validation that you did the right thing.
To others you appear to be calm and peaceful, but really this is the quiet before the storm. You’re tired of dwelling on what you could have done differently, but you aren’t ready to speak your truth. You’re between a rock and a hard place, and your silence isn’t based in satisfaction but confusion. You have such strong feelings about the situation, but you need to correct how you’re thinking about it.
This new moon, rather than make rash decisions based on self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed -- slow down, ground yourself and breathe. And then breathe again. Control what you can control. Where you are called to act, be consistent and reliable. Where you are called to speak, be patient and thoughtful. Until your head clears, no sudden moves.
Once your mind clears, it will become obvious to you there is something you really, really want. The only question then will be, what will you do to get it?
You’ve been self medicating in some way, Gemini, to avoid dealing with some painful issues. But now, rather than indulge one twin over the other, you want balance. It is Libra season, after all. In order to have the balance you seek, you’re going to have to say what you have to say, and let what has to be said, be said to you. Once everything is out in the open, you can mourn properly, face your disappointments and pains, and finally heal from them.
You’re thinking about how to be independent, self sufficient and magical -- but you’ve yet to internalize that the powerful transmutation that magic requires comes from the heart, not the mind. You’re very certain about what you want, and what you think, and what you want to say, but it's all very logical and clinical and devoid of emotion. Clarity isn’t true clarity if emotion isn’t a factor.
This is the time for finding what really makes you feel good, even if it means leaving behind the things you thought made you happy. You have to figure out the difference between experiencing joy and numbing pain. Are you truly thriving, or are you just trying your best not to hurt?
This new moon, ponder the power of sacrifice. Is there something you need to give up and let fall away in order to ascend to your next level? A habit, viewpoint, mindset or relationship? What do you need to release so you can go higher? What do you need to give up in order to gain?
You have to face your pain in order to move past it. Masking it so you can handle it only prolongs it. You have to face it to get through it. You might need to cry, write, call folks and cuss ‘em out, run, rage, release.
It will be messy and glorious and you’re worth it. `
Whatever you’re feeling now stems from a difficult situation filled with turmoil and loss. You’re concentrating on just moving on, but at the same time you want to know why it all fell down the way it did. You’re looking deep into your intuition for answers to the unanswerable, but introspection has led you to suspect something don’t want to believe. There is someone untrustworthy in your midst, someone close to you, perhaps a close friend or family member.
You’re tired of the drama and you just want to move on from the whole unpleasantness as soon as possible. However this new moon, your advice is to face the fuckery once and for all and let them know you know. Be like Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction -- “I want him to know that I know, and I want him to know that I WANT him to know.”
Enjoy the rebuilding and transformation that is taking place in your life. Enjoy watching certain people get transformed OUT of your life, as they no longer suit you. It's time for you to break the chain of old repetitive patterns, cycles and relationships, and appreciate the peace that clarity brings.
You’re finishing up some much deserved rest and recuperation after the conclusion of a painful situation. As a result of your peace, you’ve been getting deeper into your emotions and intuition, and the natural rhythms of your life. However, the deeper you go into yourself, the more forgotten hurt rises to the surface. You’re trying to balance all your identities -- all that you are and all you provide -- and the effort of being everything to everyone makes you reminisce about simpler, sweeter times.
Leo, your advice for this new moon is to go ahead and feel your emotions, but don’t let this upsurge of sensitivity throw you off your square. Be your own sense of calm within the storm. Understand that you’re not alone in feeling raw and open. It's a sensitive time. This is the season when the leaves fall, when the cold comes, when everything sleeps or dies.
Go ahead and finish this cycle in your life. Feel your feelings, heal what needs healing, and continue to live in the in between place where your intuition tells you things you have no way of knowing. You must practice making decisions based on your understanding of light AND shadow.
You are being remade and re-born, in the image of your wisdom and experiences. Let it happen.
This is your brand new beginning. You’re feeling victorious, looking good, and enjoying being supported by those near and dear to you regarding your passions. However -- since success comes with responsibility -- you have a choice to make.
The crux of the matter is that you want to do the right thing -- and perhaps in some ways you want to be told what to do because you’re not quite sure what the right thing is. Except, if someone did tell you what to do, would you do it? After working so hard to become your own authority, are you willing to so quickly give your power away? You’re focused on drawing some lines in the sand and letting folks know where they got you fucked up -- . but perhaps you wouldn’t have to so forcefully claim your power if you weren’t subconsciously trying to hand it over.
This new moon, figure out what YOU want. Be your own authority. Execute decisions, but not from a space of sensitivity and victim-hood, but from a space of pro-action and competence. Get on the other side of the power equation -- rather than looking for someone to tell you what to do, be the one who delegates. Be the one who is disciplined enough to be relied upon. Be the one with the master plan.
Make choices that you can be transparent about, because the spotlight is coming your way. As you get used to being focused upon, release the need to do every single thing yourself. Create systems that allow you to delegate.
Recently you’ve felt disappointed, and it was difficult for you to focus on the blessings still around you. Because of that, you’ve got master plans on plans to keep the past from repeating itself. If you can’t control it, you don’t want any parts of it.
You’re a pretty good leader, too -- you have the most creative, out-of-the-box-but-it-works solutions to everyone’s problems -- but deep down you’re not sure if you’re ready to step up and be the boss because something really fucking hurt you and you can’t really deal. If you keep going this way without addressing and healing your wounds, you’re going to wind up lying to yourself and others about your capabilities, and your reputation will take a hit.
The advice here is to focus on what you can give, and what you can nurture. Speak about how you feel, turn it into art, cry, make love, be with your children, play, scream, let your soul be a rainbow and leak color everywhere. Go into nature and talk to trees. Accept where you are so you can be honest with people about where you are.
If you continue to suppress your emotions, you will make decisions from a false space, and their effects will not align with your true needs. However if you’re transparent, your choices will be authentic and thus most beneficial.
Advocate for yourself.
You’ve learned how to better care for yourself, your people and your resources. You’ve learned how to -- as they say -- fill your own cup first. Well your cup is full and you’re wanting to offer it to others. However all this love and light and friendship gets you over stimulated, and sometimes you just need some time alone. You’re learning to balance doing for self with doing for your people. Except instead of speaking up and asking folks to pour back into you when you feel depleted, you have a tendency to walk away and do your own thing.
You’re also excited about a new beginning and you’re ready to just jump out there. However whatever this new chapter brings, you know it must contain reciprocity. No more stalking or ghosting. No more extremes. Balance is key now.
For this new moon dear Scorpio, use your courage to let people love you. Let your love make you vulnerable, yet trust you will not break. There is a middle ground between being totally dependable and totally dependent. It's the place where we take care of each other.
In the recent past you embarked on an adventure. Because your new beginning filled you with optimism, perhaps you’re making promises that you can’t fulfill. You’re just optimistic, that’s all. It’s just you’re having trouble balancing what you’ve told people you can do with what you can actually do.
You really want what you want, and you should have what you want! The problem is, subconsciously you’re stuck on an old cycle of horrible, awful heartbreak and pain, and you’re building on top of it rather than dealing with it, clearing it and moving forward to a new cycle.
This new moon, your advice is to take care of yourself first, then take care of others. You can’t give nobody a ride if your car is on E. If people expect you to mother them, you have to be your own mother first. You can have domestic bliss, but remember the phrase -- “When mama is happy, everybody's happy.” The reverse is also true.
At the end of the day, there might be some conflict in your world and in your spirit but that’s alright. Putting yourself first often gets a little kickback from those who are used to you putting THEM first. But… so the fuck what.
In the recent past you made a decision that is making you and your loved ones very happy. However it represents an ending of sorts and in some ways, you’re hesitant to move on. Your mind is on fire with creativity though, clicking away and calculating all of the variables, and you are supported by the deep knowing that all the things you’ve been through have brought you to this place and you deserve the fuck out of what is coming to you. You feel good and your enormous worth is being recognized.
This new moon, your advice is to accept whatever ending must occur and know that it will not only benefit you, but your family on a generational level. Stack your coin and bless your bloodline. THis is a time to do what you are best at -- to recognize the SENSE/CENTS in moving on from behaviors and patterns that are no longer working. This is the time for you to lean in, bless the past and let that positive change happen, in your life and in your pockets.
You’ve done the work and your rewards are here. Surrender to your blessings.
You recently moved on from a difficult situation. Everything wasn’t necessarily worked out to your satisfaction but you managed to cut your losses and move on, with or without closure. This has led you to feeling a bit paranoid, still on guard for the next obstacle. Perhaps as you try to go forward, you feel chained to expectations of everything going to shit, again. You’re having trouble releasing the past and moving forward into a future you can believe in.
Yet, in your heart, you recognize a new beginning. You are experiencing a surge of positive emotion, but you’re nervous to channel it in optimistic ways because of the fear of disappointment. Your mind is on a tangible reward -- yet even though you’ve earned it, you won’t allow yourself enjoy it.
Your advice for this new moon is to say what you have to say. Don’t beat around the bush. Whatever situation in which you cut your losses and tried your very best to move past -- you need to readdress. The reason you are feeling paranoid and stuck is because you avoided confrontation instead of setting yourself free. You forgot chains could travel. It's time to speak up for yourself and say what you repressed before. Don’t worry about being too harsh; even when you are firm and direct, you can’t help but speak from a place of love. Don’t be afraid to speak your truth.
Get this difficult communication out of the way because you have lots of choices coming at you, and you really need to figure out what path you want to take and what choices you want to make, and you don’t want those decisions to be based in old fears. You want to face those options with a clear mind.
In the recent past you got tired of waiting on folks to help you so you decided to do some things on your own. And it's not that you mind help, either -- but either things will be done your way or you’ll just do it yourself. However even when we decide to do things on our own, sometimes we still have to be patient. Our time is not God’s time. It's going to take how long it takes.
And the thing is, you really ARE patient. But you see so clearly what needs to be done and how to do it, except you don’t want to put your hands on it because you know the magic happens when things delicately fall in line, and are not forced and bossed together. Deep down you’re motivated by taking care of yourself and your people long term, and you know that’s not a fast food order. It’s going to take how long it takes.
This new moon, your advice is to work on your work. Do what you can, and do it well. God will do God’s part but you must do yours. Yes you have amazing ideas, and yes they will be integrated at a future date. But now, get really, really, really fucking excellent at the basics, at the foundation, at the doing-it-every-day-ness of it. Get so engrossed in the work that the timing of the rewards surprise you. Swing your hammer and hum.
This is the time for using all phases of ebb and flow to move ahead on your path. Inertia pushes us forward too. Don’t feel like just because events are snapping and pushing, that you aren’t moving ahead. Things are always in flux even as they appear to be still. It's not like you’re bored though -- because you have work to do.
The universe is teaching you to remain steady, even as events shift around you. Through your consistent practice, you can always feel rooted in yourself, your talent and ability.
This new moon reminds us that good things come to those who wait, and that anything worth doing, is worth doing well. We have worked hard, we have been patient, and we are willing to fight any entity that comes sniffing around our tender new growths. We made a wish -- and not for the first time -- but the difference is, this time it's going to come true. Congratulations! That’s the good news.
The challenge is, now that we’re getting what we wanted, we’re so much more focused than before on what could go wrong. On what we could lose. We’re excited to use our resources to care for ourselves and our loved ones better, but the added responsibility makes us feel that failure is inevitable. Life is so much scarier when your hopes are up.
Unfortunately, there is no magic answer or solution to make the fear go away. Life is full of ups and downs, gains and losses, ebb and flow. You are right to be afraid, if change is something that scares you. Change is the only constant. But just because change is inevitable doesn’t mean is has to throw you off balance. You don’t have to worry. Life will always balance itself. What goes up must come down. What is taken from your right hand will be given to your left. With this understanding, have compassion for your own fears and the fears of your loved ones. We are hurtling through the stars together.
Now is the time to keep being patient, keep being consistent, even though winds of change toss around you. You shall not be moved.
Just remember that as long as you don’t get out of the boat, you will unfailingly arrive at your destination. All that’s left to be decided is whether or not you will enjoy the ride.

~ ARIES ~
You’re riding tall, feeling good, celebrating your success. Your spirit is balanced again, after a long struggle and conflict. It's not just you up there either -- your success represents the efforts of your community and your tribe. You stand on the shoulders of others and they all contribute to your fire. Yet you're afraid that everything will fall apart again, and you're worried that this time its not just you, but your nearest and dearest who will suffer. Worry not. Simply wish your wishes and work your plan. For everything there is a season and a time. This is time to rebuild. Fear not. The next chapter is here. Keep the faith.
~ TAURUS ~
You’re a fountain of emotion Taurus, but you have no idea what to do with it. You don’t know where to put it. Spirit is telling you that it’s up to you. You decide. You have your tools. You don’t need someone to tell you what to build, you’re just unaccustomed to using emotion as one of your raw materials. You’re used to exerting your will and fire, but you are not used to feeling your feelings. However, your feelings are your most powerful tool when it comes to manifesting the new world you want. Let your tears flow. Let your love flow. Stop hiding. (Just between us: is there someone you need to be vulnerable with, so you can celebrate your closeness once again?)
~ GEMINI ~
You’re feeling like you’re saying and thinking the right things, even if other people have a problem with it. Your expressions are palatable though -- spoonful of sugar and all that jazz. You’re really worried about how other people are being affected, though, bless your heart. Your empathy is on fleek so you’re feeling their feelings. Spirit is advising to balance between your need to speak your truth and the ability of others to hear it. Be someone who says what is right and true, but who also takes other people’s feelings into account. You've heard it before -- it’s not what you say, its how you say it. Your inner diplomacy will manifest in the world as grace. Easy does it. Patience is a virtue.
~ CANCER ~
Cancer, what went down couldn’t-a went down any other way. You’re trying to accept that and move on, and that’s a beautiful thing. Except you feel blocked because you don’t want to accept that… (you guessed it) WHAT WENT DOWN COULDN’T-A WENT DOWN ANY OTHER WAY. If you could get in a time machine and have a do-over, you would. Shit just ain’t sitting right with you. What you need to understand is that you’re not always going to understand. You did your part, God’s gonna do God’s part, and that’s all there is to it. The Lord works in mysterious ways and all that. One thing you CAN know though, is how all of this has changed you. Sit with you and see what’s new.
~ LEO ~
You’re full of inspiration, you got some resources, and you’re ready to build some new things. You’re ready to get some new projects popping. You’ve got plans on plans on plans.
Or do you? You’re blocked by the fact that you have all the tools you need at your disposal, but you aren’t sure what to create. Let me help -- create what makes you happy. That’s it, that’s all. What’s the point of creating anything else?
~ VIRGO ~
You’ve been handed inspiration so pure and complete it feels like it’s straight from the Gods. The problem is, you’re worried that if you act on this brand new energy, people might call you… well…brand new. You’re feeling vulnerable. Spirit is telling you to be brand new anyway. Those on your squad will raise a glass, and those who won’t are assholes. At least you’ll know who’s who.
~ LIBRA ~
You’re looking for external solutions to your interior struggles, Libra. Instead of using your energy to unravel your tangled inner world, you’re focused on your love relationships. Of course you are, because it’s Libra season, and y'all Libras loathe to be alone. Relationships provide a mirror through which to see yourselves clearly. However, you don’t need another’s eyes to look at yourself now, Libra. You inner vision is sharp. However focusing on yourself instead of the other might destabilize your relationship, but if your partner / friends / family can’t take the fact that you need to self-prioritize for healing, then f*** ‘em. Frfr.
~ SCORPIO ~
You’re glowing, Scorpio! All that self care I’ve been advising must have paid off. You’re feeling fulfilled, and it's coming from a self-generated place so no one can take it from you. The only problem is, your self-care might have tipped the scales into self-criticism. You got so good at wielding your inner laser beam that you might be going a little overboard and frying your circuits. Spirit advises you to use your energy as inspiration to do something new and creative in the world -- not to analyze and criticize yourself to death. You’re already a masterpiece. Go and make something other than yourself over.
~ SAGITTARIUS ~
Whatever has been going on in your world, Sag, you’ve finally been able to turn your perspective around and look at things differently. Perhaps that means looking at things from another person’s point of view? It's taking you a long time, though. A really long time. It's one thing to be slow and steady; it's another thing to be stuck and stagnant. Spirit is advising you to let go of the wait and do what you need to do. If you need to forgive or ask for forgiveness or both, get on with it already.
~ CAPRICORN ~
You’re a little paranoid, Cap. You survived the battle, but you haven’t slept. You remain on guard for the next attack, which may or may not be coming. You wonder if you can take any more, but I’m here to tell you-- you can. You’re much stronger than you give yourself credit for. The reason the universe sends you so many problems is because you’re a universal problem solver. Of course, your super problem solving ability doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t believe in it yourself. And perhaps you don’t believe it because of how often your back is against the wall. Where is your squad? Have you told people to get the hell on because they were doing it wrong? Nobody is perfect. If your support system is on probation, let them know on no uncertain terms where they fucked up and how they need to fix it, so you can get your dream team back together again. You weren’t made to score all your points alone.
~ AQUARIUS ~
You’re feeling good Aquarius! You’ve got your friends and family close and all is right in your world. Things are good now, but are you worried about the future? Are you worried how to take care of everyone in the long term? You should be. Love comes with tons of responsibility. Love means having enough in your bank account to feed everyone at your table. It's a huge weight on your shoulders, but even more so when your faith is weak. However you got this far is how you will get farther. Don’t doubt yourself now. Trust that you will be led to the right opportunities, as long as follow your intuition. The road is dark ahead but your heart has night vision. Just make sure that when opportunities present themselves, you are prepared to take the ACTIONS necessary. Stay ready. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Plan to be lucky.
~ PISCES ~
Hey Pisces! You got your tools in your toolbox and you are ready to manifest something juicy. But what exactly? You can do so many things, but your energy would be better served choosing one. Your focus needs more focus. It's time to unify the force you use being five different superheroes, and become one mega super-hero. Think Power Rangers. Key words: Focus, consistency, routine, uniformity, mastery.
~ ALL SIGNS ~
This week, we’re being given the gift of graciousness. If we choose we can give generously and receive richly -- but only if we choose. Spirit won’t force our hearts to grow up. A treasure of emotion awaits, nonetheless- if we can get over ourselves.
We think our blessings come from us but really they come through us. Who are we to withhold from others what we have been freely given? We are all in this together. If we refuse to sow happiness among our brothers, we will surely reap the misery we heap on their heads.
This week, we are advised to be steady, loyal and true. Among other things, this means knowing our limits. We are to give whatever we can consistently give, without faltering. We are to offer quality and not quantity. We are to make sure we don’t over extend ourselves, so that we can extend ourselves reliably.
Outside influences might tell you not to do this. They might tell you not to love how you love, not to give how you give, not to forgive how you forgive. They might have lots of reasons why you shouldn’t be as big as you are. Don’t listen to them. You’re just afraid of being disappointed again, which is why they get any airplay at all. Improve your understanding of your own magnanimity, and their voices will fade to black.
Where you are a blessing, you will be blessed. The good you do will quickly be returned to you.

You’re feeling good Aries! Your warm and fuzzies are showing. You’re ready to share all your good feeling with someone close, but it’s taking too long to find the right one. Patience ain’t your strong suit. Slow and steady isn’t your thing. But maybe it doesn’t have to be. Perhaps you could just enjoy being in love with your own self for awhile, and demonstrate for the tired masses how to treat your number one like your number one. What if, instead of being frustrated about finding a partner, you dazzled potential suitors with your superpower of self love? That way, once your beloved meets you, he or she will know exactly how to treat you.
It's been difficult to process all that has happened, Taurus. Your own life has become a mystery to you. But just like the loss of one sense makes the others stronger, where your comprehension has diminished, your compassion has intensified. You feel everything and can’t make sense of a bit. That’s good. That’s very good. That’s according to plan. Let your logic rest a spell, and learn how to experience -- and express -- your feelings.
You’ve planted a seed, either with your effort, your money or both. You will reap what you’ve sown, but that takes time. Seeds don’t sprout overnight. You can’t persuade the soil. You can’t outwit the need for patience. There aren’t any shortcuts from here to there. Take heart, though. Even though you can’t rush your product, you can fine tune your plan. Channel the spirit of George Washington Carver -- he couldn’t make those peanuts grow any faster, but when it was harvest time, he had considered every possibility and was prepared to execute them all.
Oooh Cancer, you feeling all in love and stuff. Nice! You are also feeling very much on your grind, on your own thing, counting your coins, appreciating your progress, marveling at your own resilience and capability. Why do you feel these two energies are at odds? Why would being in love with someone else conflict with being in love with YOU? Are you perhaps viewing your new joy through the lens of old pain? Let the past be in the past, Cancer. Believe in something new. Get out of your mind and into your body. Look around at what is REALLY going on instead of replaying the past in your mind. It's a whole new world out here. It might surprise you. Let go.
Hey Leo, with your royal, eye-catching self. You’re so expressive and extroverted that people often don’t realize how empathic and compassionate you are. You feel and express your feelings, and you feel other people’s feelings too. Sometimes that’s difficult, because you can feel when, through no fault of your own, your natural magnificence makes other people feel insecure. People think you want to shine on them, but the truth is, you want EVERYBODY to shine. All you can control is you, though, and you better not let me catch you out here being mediocre because all the cool kids are doing it. It's time to unleash your inner extraordinary and enjoy all the perks that come with it. Sometimes you have to lead from the front.
Virgo! Happy belated birthday m’loves! Looks like you got a little bit of shine and clout, hmmm? You out here making boss moves? Congratulations! Okay, now some words of warning: don’t get comfortable. Don’t look down. Don’t become paralyzed mid-climb once you realize how far you have to fall, and how much you have to lose. Pretend like every step is the bottom and keep going. KEEP GOING. This is your new beginning and it's barely begun. Complacency is the enemy of progress. Of course, this is risky business. Of course your rational mind won’t give you permission to follow my advice. The good news is, you don’t need it to. Your feelings and emotions know the way and they’re giving you the green light. Follow your heart. Keep going.
Happy birthday Libra! It looks like you’ve been PUTTING IN THAT WORK!! Great job! Your ideas are moving from the trial phase to the coin phase and you’re seeing your efforts literally pay off. I’m not talking about one source of income, either. You out here trying to be like Jay-Z, “merrily eating off these streams.” What we doing about that broken heart, though? I’m sorry for speaking so plainly, because I know you don’t want people to know. But (again to quote Jay-Z), “you can’t heal what you won’t reveal.” You don’t need to shout it from the roof tops -- you’re right about it being none of our business -- but you do have to promise to stop hiding your pain from yourself. You will never enjoy all of your well deserved success if you don’t heal what ails you. Use your birthday season for deep analysis and self care. Come to terms with the past, bless it and move on. Your life is waiting.
Beloved Scorpio, it’s going to be alright. This is a painful time, but you’re doing the work. You’re not trying to escape your feelings -- you’re sitting with them, processing them, letting them flow. This too shall pass. However, healing doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Is there something you need to say? And I’m not talking about self-talk either, I’m talking about a conversation. Are there boundaries you need to set? A change to be announced regarding what you will and won’t tolerate? What you have to say might not be popular, but what’s fair is fair. You matter.
You’ve got new ideas, Sag, and you’re bursting with creativity and the desire to express yourself. Even better than ideas, you might have a few new coins too. Has your hard work been paying off? Awesome! What’s going on with your heart though? Is your new project keeping you from loving up on someone who misses loving up on you? Are you finding it to focus on work because you’re focused on luuuuuuuurve? The cards are saying you should just get married then. Ha! But seriously -- when you’ve found your soul mate and your dream job, you have to figure out how to balance the two, because you’d be a fool to let either one go, and you’d be remiss to give one more attention than the other. What a wonderful problem to have! Find some successfully married, as well as married AND successful people, and ask their secret.
You’re feeling conflicted, Capricorn. Something isn’t sitting right with your spirit. You’ve gone through a lot and although much of it has changed you, and you’re finding it hard to integrate those new chapters into the old story of your life. You can’t go back but you’re not sure how to move forward either. And you can’t even focus on all of that because everywhere you turn, someone is depending on you. Surviving what you’ve survived has made you the strongest, most capable person in the room, and the fruits of your labor is a blessing to others. Speak words and think thoughts that help you move on from the past. Try the serenity prayer; ask for the courage to accept the things you can’t change, and change the things you can. There is so much waiting for you right here and right now, that you can’t access from a space of regret.
Aquarius, you know what you want and you’re determined to find it. Yet you feel blocked with the stagnant energy of old pain. It really is okay to move on. You can’t change the past but you can accept it, and watch your inner self-work change your outer world. Remember too, that you don’t just do this for yourself; when you heal something in yourself, you heal something in everyone connected to you. If you won’t move on for you, move on for your people.
You’ve experienced a few upsets, Pisces, and you have every right to feel disappointed. But in your desire to push past it, you’re moving a little too quickly, and possibly in the wrong direction. Often it isn’t our destination that matters, but the spirit in which we travel. Are you moving through life in a spirit of sadness, lamenting what you cannot change -- or are you moving with appreciation for the fact that, when you decide to count your blessings, there are blessings to count? Also, what’s your hurry anyway? Life transformations don’t happen overnight. Slow down and get your rest. Consistency trumps speed. That goes for your time AND your money.
This week heralds Libra season, and with it, comes the energy of closure, justice and karma. As we reflect on the last 12 months, we wonder whether or not the scales were balanced in our favor. We ponder if we got what we deserved or if we gave what was desired. Libra is the sign of beauty, but not the beauty of perfection through discernment, like Virgo. Instead, Libra represents beauty through acceptance - the celebration of what is, that could be no other way.
And that ain’t easy. Acceptance is hard. But we can’t change the past. What’s done is done. Pencils down, papers forward, tests to be graded in red. Although we obsess over what answers we should have written, our energy is best spent studying for the next exam. A castle cannot stand on a foundation of regret. No matter what happened before, we do ourselves a grave disservice if our energy is anywhere other than HERE and NOW.
Yes everything fell apart. Yes it did. Yes it did. Yes it did. That happened. You survived, but it hurt you and it changed you. You are different now. You’ve grown in the shape of your pain like a plant in shadow, but that does not negate the sun. Instead of fighting phantoms and steeling against the aftershocks, take the gift. Unclench your fists, open your hand and accept the gift. All pain comes with a blessing.
Your scars are the jewels in your crown. They represent the wisdom to which you dedicate your life. They represent the successful return from your quest, the fire you’ve found to illuminate your next steps, and the path of those who walk behind you. And yes, the crown hurts to wear. Heavy is the head, but it is the price you pay for mastery. A true master uses all her tools, not just the pretty ones. Everything sings and shines when fulfilling its purpose.
This week will help us turn our perspective all the way around if we are to have any peace. We will look in the mirror and learn to love what we see. Perfection is not required, only acceptance. In Virgo season, the earth took inventory of what thrived and what withered. In Libra season, she enfolds everything to her breast and burns it all with the golden hue of sunset, in preparation for sleep and a new dream. As we plan what to plant next, we must acknowledge ALL the tools in our tool box. What gifts did your sorrow give you? Though you may limp from the journey, what treasure did you find?
