If you’ve felt like you were slipping the last couple of weeks, well, you probably were–Mercury was in Retrograde and Aries was getting buckwild in multiple signs. This probably set you on edge and although Mercury is out of retrograde and communication will be easier, life is still going to be tense for a week or two.
Check yourself before you wreck yourself–literally. You will want to be on your best behavior this week which means sans gossip and drama. Summon forth your sweet-natured inner child, go out and have innocent fun until all the astrological pathos crawls back into a hole and dies for a couple months.
Go forth and read the details on your sun sign! If you know your rising sign, read that too.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
Your Weekly Mantra: Make amends and make new friends.
You’ve been out of control with your words lately, Aries, and you need filter, focus, forgive yourself, and re-friend those that you might have offended. It helps that Mercury isn’t beating around the violently burning bush anymore.
Once you get your head straight and your priorities clear, you should be able to successfully accomplish a personal project. Especially in the viral and social media realm. Keep you internet banter light and make some new cyber friends–with virtual honey, not the sometimes bitter Aries tongue.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: Just say “No” to frenemies. Especially the “frenemy” you’ve made of yourself.
You haven’t been trusting people lately and for good reason: you don’t trust yourself. When you don’t have faith in your own actions, it’s hard to believe other people, or subsequently, attract good people.
Re-evaluate the relationships you have in your life and how you impact them with your stubborn perceptions and how you treat other people. Make yourself responsible for your own actions, apologize to anyone you may have offended, and then move on from the situation. Doing this will help you go through a creative resurgence because you won’t have to carry the baggage of bitterness any longer.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: Playtime+Personal Progress=Profit
Don’t believe all the hype that all work and no play means big bucks. For Gemini, this is completely false. You reach your heights of success if you mix your playtime with your work time; when you are having fun, the world wants to give you money.
While the world is literally heating up, Gemini is going through a progressive Renaissance. You better have all the latest tools of the trade at your disposal if you want to make the biggest impact–especially for organizing your profitable social life with your ever-increasing need for recharging solitude.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Work it out and work problems will work themselves out.
Although you’ve been basically a workaholic the last couple of months, corporate life has been out of control for you lately. Here’s the deal–when you are stressed out, you stress other people out, and in turn they take their stress out on you and stress you out more. Not a good circle of circumstances. With Mercury out of retrograde, all that should change considerably.
Instead of just being seen as a loose cannon or a bundle of nerves, you can now focus your career energy on making the best first impression possible. Cancers don’t really like attention, but they love being loved by the right people and if you keep the seas around you calm these upcoming weeks, all your co-workers and the big bosses will fall in love you all over again.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Hit the road.
Some people are completely happy where they are. Normally, Leo, you are one of those people, because all you really need is adoration, the spotlight, and a successful career with lots of bling worthy goodies. But these days, that’s just not good enough for you. Let out your inner jetsetter.
Plan a trip, learn a different language, and interconnect communities as much as possible. You won’t be happy until you express yourself on a global level, one that affords you the ability to travel–whether that be physically or mentally. Leo, you are finally going through a phase where compassion and diplomacy rules instead of being the center of attention.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Secrecy begets secrecy; honesty begets honesty.
You’ve had some profound issues with people lately, Virgo. Mostly, you can’t trust them as far as you can throw them. This isn’t because you’ve learned something scandalous. You probably just have a feeling–a feeling that is making your life difficult for everyone, but mostly yourself.
If you really don’t trust someone, instead of passive-aggressively asking them what they are doing say something like, “I don’t know what’s been going on with me, but I’ve felt really uncomfortable and have lacked trust lately. Can you tell me if anything is going on? Please be honest.” With an approach like that, nine times out of ten the person will answer you honestly. And if they don’t, they can leave to the left, to the left, as fellow Virgo Beyonce aptly says.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)
Your Weekly Mantra: Get hitched or get hooked but whatever you do, just get on it.
Your focus in the next couple of months will be on the impenetrable “other half”–whether that is in a romantic relationship or a work situation. Libra’s are always pretty scared of commitment, mostly because it hinders their rip-roaring party life, so you can be pretty vague about your feelings.
But if you really want this relationship to work out, Libra, you have to be completely forthright and look at your honesty like a personality test. If your co-worker, hubby, or soon-to-be monogamous lover passes with fighting colors, then you know communication will be easy in the future if any conflicts arise.
Sometimes you have to fight to really know what something means to you. Yes, peace-loving Libra–not all fights are bad fights.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
Your Weekly Mantra: The devil is in the details. So focus on the big picture.
Get over needing to have every little detail of your life perfect, Scorpio. Not everything can follow your well-drafted master plan, back-up plan, and emergency plan. If you can relax, enjoy the expansive energy around you, and maybe compromise your hardcore ideals of perfection, you will surely reach a kind of happiness you rarely feel.
A way to get over the neurosis of obsession is to release some calming endorphins. Run, do yoga, play tennis, soak up the sunshine, and just enjoy these simple gifts from the universe.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Your Weekly Mantra: Don’t be a drag, just be a queen. But not a drama queen.
A Sagittarius scorned is a ornery person overall, one prone to negative drama, gossip, and the kind of rage that bleeds through their very being. You never try to be mean or cause drama, but you just have a very aggressive way of communicating sometimes and Mercury in Retrograde surely exacerbated that.
Take a step back, apologize to the people around you that you may have hurt, filter your energy through positive, creative outlets, and if you can’t do that focus on beautifying yourself–inside and out. Your turbulent personal relationships might relax and regenerate themselves just by proxy.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Your Weekly Mantra: Be a domestic goddess.
For the cuddly Capricorn, there really is nothing better than sinking into high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets with a boy toy, some ice cream, and the remote control. This is a dream “date” for you, Capricorn, and if you really want, you can have lots of dream dates this week.
First you have to figure out your living situation. You aren’t where you want to be when it comes to the perfect domicile and you will only be truly happy living in a space that expresses your personality. Things are about to shift and give you that missing piece that will really make your house a home. Maybe your recent placement as Cupid’s favorite love doll is helping you get into the white picket fence mentality.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Your Weekly Mantra: Keep calm and carry on.
Get back to your old-school Aquarius status of being spontaneous, friendly, and fancy-free. You might have had some hardcore misunderstandings in the last couple of weeks because of silly Mercury, but calmly clear up any issues (which should be easy now), be your crazy old self, and things will just naturally disappear. Just don’t stress on them.
Relax, have a good time, and focus on the much needed upswing of your dating life. With all the past drama, you need this. Give yourself what you need.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
Your Weekly Mantra: Think BIG and BIG things will come.
Poor little Pisces. No, literally Poor little Pisces. Your personal relationship with money has been all about negative dollars, but that doesn’t make any sense. Most likely, your perception of how much money you “don’t” have is actually completely distorted by your subconscious hatred of the material world in general.Stop being so cautious and treat your money like what it is–just an ever-flowing mode of exchange between human beings.
Start talking positive about money. About savings money for a fancy trip, a fancy car, a fancy night on the town. Treat yourself to something nice. Get in the business of pretending to be a wealthy, goal-oriented businesswoman. And it just might happen because with your full creative forces, abundance just can’t stay away from you.
