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?
