This week starts off with a soft connection between winged messenger Mercury, who is in emotional Cancer, and explosive Uranus, who is in practical Taurus. When these two planets collide, we won’t see fireworks, but we will see tears as both planets will reveal emotional secrets (most of which we weren’t expecting to hear and feel). The same day, healing asteroid Chiron, who is in impulsive Aries, offers us a quick fix to our sentimental woes when linking up with Mercury. Tender Venus enters chatty Gemini on the 8th, allowing us to discuss our desires in a rational manner. However, the 9th adds uncertainty and confusion to all sentiments, as the Gemini Sun and Neptune, who is splashing around in illusive Pisces, square off. We will all feel uncertain about our present situations, even lost in the fog. June 10th brings such feelings to the surface, when the Sun and Jupiter, who is moving backwards in fiery Sagittarius, make us discuss our concerns with others. The caveat to the 10th, is that the First Quarter Moon in Virgo sets off a mutable Grand Cross (A Grand Cross is when four  planets square each other in the cosmos) with the Sun, the Moon, Jupiter retrograde, and Neptune adding stress and indecision to the day. On the contrary, we may allow ourselves to get swept away in the rapture. Be careful on the 10th. We may want to be credulous and believe in the words of others. However, we will learn to see that there’s no substance and action to their words (or our words). Once again, this is a week that requires compassion and patience. We must be extra gentle to ourselves and others. Please, reach out to people who are in distress, especially on the 10th, as it’s a very emotional day.


March 21-April 19

This week grants you the chance to implement your subconscious desires into reality—or, at least discuss your visions with others. For some time now, you have been daydreaming of the “big” move that will boost your status (professionally and personally). This week, you are discussing how to make your visions become real. As long as you believe in yourself, there’s nothing you can’t achieve. The more confidence you have within, the more others will believe in you. Planning out the next phases will be essential this week. You will be able to achieve success and implement your desires as long as you are strategic in carrying out your actions, which will require proper planning. 


April 20-May 20

Your recent need for idealism has left you romanticizing relationships. The caveat, is that you are so wrapped up in the dream, that you are forgetting to take care of your needs. This week serves to adjust such energies and bring you down to earth. While you may be lost in the fog and the sentiments, you will put effort towards manifesting material wealth and physical gain, rather than lofty visions. Accepting hard truths may be hard. But, don’t give up on hope. You will come to see by week’s end, that you can have your cake and eat it too if you don’t lose faith in yourself and the process of attaining your goals. 


May 21-June 20

Just when you felt like waving the white flag and surrendering to the current cosmic forces which are causing personal woes, you are granted one more hopeful reprise at attaining peace. This means you will be mending interpersonal relationships which have recently faltered. You will get partnerships  right a second time, as you need to accept  half of the blame for recent issues. Instead of deflecting, openly discuss such matters with friends, lovers, colleagues, and family members. In order to start fresh and revive these relationships, you will have to accept your part in such situation. Learning to own up to your issues instead of running away from them will help you to emotionally grow this week.


June 21-July 22

While you are still surfing the rocky celestial waves, this week gives you the chance to discuss your fears with those you hold near and dear. Learning to dive deep within your protective shell may prove challenging, as you tend to hide your trepidations. The flip side, is that you may come to terms with a relationship that is not making you feel safe and forcing you to question your sense of security. Regardless of how this week’s cosmic energy manifests, it’s important to only surround yourself with those you can completely trust. If you start to act out, it’s a warning sign from your subconscious that the person or situation isn’t what they seem. 


July 23-August 22 

This week brings you the opportunity to make amends with friends and family—only if you are honest about your emotions. Understanding your motivations and sentiments will allow you to express yourself openly and sincerely. But, are you able to do so? You are known to be a honest lion; however, you are hiding your feelings and acting out in ways which are causing both you and others pain. This stems from your need for control and the inability to allow change within your interpersonal relationships. Instead of blowing up minefields, take a step back and find the right words to represent your feelings. Only then will your relationships be able to evolve and heal. 


August 23-September 22

Your professional aspirations have allotted you fame and fortune. However, this week, you are unsure if you actually want to continue walking down your current career path. The reason being, is that you are losing yourself in the malaise of mundane activities, which juxtapose your versatile energies. Before you put your notice in at work and leave your current position, make a realistic plan. Don’t quit in the spur of the moment. Also, ask for a raise and additional responsibilities before leaving. Inquire if you can transition into a more artistic role before quitting. If your needs aren’t met, find another job that is more exciting and creative—one that will push your earthy visions to the limit.


Sept. 23-Oct. 22

For the past few weeks you have been thrown off your balance, which has caused your anxieties to flair up. This week acts as a reprieve from the drama, but only if you focus your attentions solely on yourself. It’s time for you to connect with a new vision and embrace a higher minded vibe. Setting boundaries with others may be challenging, as you tend to overextend yourself and rarely say “no.” Before you “yes” yet another person, think about what this entails. If it doesn’t mix well with your daily routine and causes more stress than it’s worth, then you have the right to decline. Let them work around your schedule for a change. 


Oct. 23-Nov. 21

This week serves as your cosmic escape from the daily grind. Ever so often, you need to disconnect from the craziness of the world and be at one with yourself. This entails turning off all of your electronically devices for a few minutes a day and meditating. Becoming one with the universe will allow you to see situations and people from a new perspective. It will also allow you to make clear and rational decisions. Most importantly, you will learn to live in the moment. Also, become more mindful and present. Through this act, you will become calm and in control of your emotions, which will allow you to feel more in control than ever. 


Nov. 22-Dec. 21

Your stress level is at a high this week, mostly due to your financial and personal struggles. This may lead you to project your insecurities, fears, and anxieties on others, particularly your closest relationships. As  a result, this will cause others to take out their frustrations on you. Don’t ride emotional merry go ‘round this week. Get off. Take responsibility for your actions and learn to express your innermost sentiments clearly with others. Speaking your truth. Let those in your inner circle understand your feelings by talking in a calm manner to ensure they don’t react. Listen to their suggestions and feedback. Then, you will be able to seek the advice and comfort you need. 


Dec. 22-Jan. 19

There’s no escaping the inevitable annoyances of this week for you, Capricorn. While you may not be able to run away from the stresses of the daily grind, you certainly are able to decompress at home—if you keep your head cool. By happenstance, you may take your irritations from work out on your loved ones, which will add another level of stress to your frustrations. If a situation is too “hot” or explosive to discuss, save it for later when everyone has calmed down. This will allow you to choose your words carefully and resolve matters swiftly. The cosmic lesson you are learning this week is that you attract more bees with honey. 


Jan. 20-Feb. 18

There’s been a lot of flux recently within your close relationships, which is resulting in feelings of stagnation on your end. Others have disappointed you, which is causing you to rethink how you proceed with becoming close to others who have let you down. Although you may feel like being a lone wolf while you figure out your emotions, it’s time to confront people who have proven to be less than reliable (but, please do so in a compassionate manner). While this week doesn’t provide conclusive endings to these relationships, you will begin to feel more secure and confident within, which will allow you to eventually let go of these relationships. 


Feb. 19-March 20 

This week, you’re extra sensitive to others, which in return is causing you to feel confused about your own life. The prescription is simple: implement extra self-care, love, and time away from those who drain your spirit. Also, an energetic cleanse is in order to heal yourself. Take a bath with Florida Water, baby’s-breath flowers, sea salt, and a dash of rum to exfoliate and detox your auric field. Within minutes, you will feel fresh and ready to take on the world. Not only will you be in high spirits, but you will also be able to see situations and people more clearly as a result of the deep purifying of the body, mind, and spirit.
